Lisa Vanderpump has taken to her Bravo blog to express her thoughts on former BFF Brandi Glanville contacting her on this past week’s episode of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. What is Lisa saying?
Lisa writes, “When I received the phone call from Brandi, I was oblivious to the fact that she was hiking with Kyle until she had to borrow her phone. I then realized how I was probably the topic of conversation as in the previous time they were hiking.”
Lisa continued, writing, “Brandi had sent me an invitation, or rather her assistant had, and I had yet to respond. She was having a house warming, and she wanted her friends to come and toast her success of moving upwards, which I understood, as before I met her, before she was part of this whole scenario, she had explained to me life was difficult.
She had been challenged financially and was only too aware the benefits of being included in this group of women could entail.
I am always happy for someone’s success, but at this point there had been little contact and honestly, I preferred it to stay that way, acknowledge her out of politeness but reticent to have any involvement with the woman again. Life was simpler that way.
Just because time passes, feelings might change, but principles don’t. I was absolutely steadfast in my resolve to never acquiesce, to stand resolute by the fact that she had created a whole scenario which ultimately backfired and now perhaps to reignite the friendship would benefit her. Well that ship had sailed. Just unfortunately, she wasn’t on it.
It is not about forgiveness, it is about awareness, and you will see how this relationship in the coming months unfolds: the sharp turns that were unforeseen, times of laughter that precede sudden moments of realization that maybe you were right all along.
I think the most important factor when you have been deeply hurt is to understand that whoever was responsible had their reasons, and sometimes they are too complicated to comprehend, but to rid yourself of the anger, as that is what is detrimental to yourself moving forward. But as I noted in my interview, hindsight is 20/20, but foresight would have been better. An apology would have gone a long way.”
Wow. It definitely seems like Lisa is not ready- and may never be- to move on with Brandi.
Tell us- do you think she’s in the right? Or is Brandi? Let us know.
