“Why Did Yolanda Twist The Truth?”
I think Lisa predicted this week we would see a turn of the tides. Several lies came out this episode and these ladies are none too happy. They are ALL (well most) truth seekers (Meghan lives on).
I just re-read my blog from last week and one part in particular really stood out to me. I said how I was happy to move forward with regards to Yolanda and this situation. Clearly, I was the only one who felt this way, because she certainly didn’t have any intention of letting me move forward based on the way she used me as a scapegoat with LVP and Kyle during their lunch. So here it is…
Perhaps Yolanda’s brain isn’t as fully functioning as she thinks. If it was, wouldn’t she have realized the conversations with Lisa Rinna, Erika, LVP and Kyle would all be recorded and then shown in chronological order? That’s all just bad planning on her part. Or Lyme Brain.
John Adams, one of our founding fathers, once said, “Facts are stubborn things and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.”
Now Lisa Rinna has taken to quoting our Founding Fathers. Meghan is sitting at home jealous that she didn’t think to include quotes in her blogs. Rinna says she went to Yolo’s to move on from the Munchausen controversy. Yolo asked her about what LVP had said about her kids and Rinna downplayed it. That was it.
Then, at lunch with Kyle and LVP, Yolanda said, “And then she (me, Lisa Rinna) also mentioned that you (LVP) said that Bella and Anwar do not have Lyme disease.” I never said that! These lips never spoke those words. So, why did Yolanda twist the truth about my involvement? Why try to “alter the state of facts and evidence”? Why would a woman who speaks so passionately of her own high vibrational living want to invest her limited energies into something like this? Something just isn’t adding up for me here. Particularly when Yolanda was the first one to mention her kids’ Lyme diagnosis in this public forum. Something is rotten in the state of Denmark, oops…I mean Holland!
OH SNAP! She is peeved at Yolanda. If you haven’t seen the Twitter war between these two this last week, you really are missing out on some HW entertainment. Go check out Star’s previous blog, “You’re Suck a Fu**ing Liar, Camille!” for more details. Rinna is not holding back and is not afraid of Yolanda.
Maybe we can attribute her new focus and tenacity to being on the mend and her health and strength improving. Watching her scold LVP and question her with such clarity and authority while unnecessarily throwing my name into the ring, a part of me wanted to stand up and applaud this extremely coherent woman who we haven’t seen for quite some time! Yep, her inquisition of LVP brought out that old spark of joy and glee in Yolanda. If I had a glass of lemonade, I would toast her.
OK, this is pretty funny. Rinna really pulled out all the funny references for this blog. And yes, I must agree. Yolo must be feeling so much better when she can organize all of the kids’ medical records so quickly for LVP to peruse. I would also toast her with some freshly squeezed lemonade, but I am northeast Ohio where they are out of season.
Loved heading to San Diego to watch Erika Jayne perform. On stage Erika Jayne rocks! But Erika Girardi needs to tell Erika Jayne to own her sh– and tell the truth!
Eileen may be Erika’s number one fan, but Lisa Rinna is not buying what she is selling. I wonder if Erika regrets her flat out denial instead of just re-directing the conversation.
“I’m Here With A Heavy Heart”
I’m here with a very heavy heart to share the news of another beloved family member passing away. Sadly, my eldest brother, John “Jack” Davidson, left us suddenly last week at the age of 69.
Eileen’s family has really suffered way too many losses this past year. Their heartache is huge.
My big brother was a brilliant man. He graduated Cum Laude with a major in Chemistry and a minor in Mathematics from St. Mary’s College. A proud Vietnam veteran, he served our country as an air traffic controller during his deployment. He loved old cars and considered himself a “muscle car aficionado.” He was heavily involved in all kinds of athletics, especially martial arts. At the age of 56, he received his black belt in Shorin-Ryu Karate. John had a wicked sense of humor and a great love for his family.
He was the father of two amazing people, my nephew Johnny and my niece Danielle. He had seven grandchildren, Justin, Brendan, Emma, Adara, Kaitlyn, Noah, and Adam. He was lucky enough to meet his great grandchild, Aellyn, last year. He also leaves behind a loving extended family, a network of friends, and members of his community, who all share in the grief of losing him.
How completely and totally heartbreaking. I have no snark for anything like this. I am sure our thoughts and prayers are with her family. Eileen asks us all, in honor of her brother, to find a minute to remind someone they are important to you and tell them you love them. I think we all can do that.
“Erika Did What A Good Friend Does”
Let me say this, Yolo is playing big time chess this year. She is the honorary Bobby Fischer this year even with her silly Lyme brain. Moving on, Yolo is claiming she had a good week. Must be all that tweeting and instagramming that keeps her brain working on all cylinders. She claims to still be in bed 18 hours a day. So, 6 hours a day are spent at her treatment centers and taking selfies.
My bedroom is now my office, just so I feel good about spending so much time there. It’s common for the chronically ill to feel inadequate about not participating in life, but we often forget that fighting long-term disease is a full-time job on its own. It’s not for pussies, thats for sure!
I just have a hard time buying any of this anymore. I believe she was unable to travel to Paris to see her girls, but I just don’t buy that she is bed-bound that much. Not when we are watching HWs from 6 months ago where she was supposedly so much more ill and she seems to be getting around just fine. She goes for walks on the beach, her Cry-clinic for hours of treatment and then a very confrontational lunch. And this was all when she was supposedly sicker than she is today. Maybe Lyme screwed up her math skills. She then tells us that she is doing a week of eating over 35 different types of veggies and 14 different kinds of beans, nuts and seeds. I hope she has one of those toilets that can flush 24 golf balls cause she is gonna need one with that diet.
Erika’s show was amazing. I am so proud of my girlfriend and promise her that I will be front row and center as soon as I can! Watching the girls have fun and let loose was refreshing! Erika, you are an inspiration!
I am a pretty boring gal. I sat on my couch last night watching Gran Torino after going to an Ice Festival in 10 degree weather. Oh, I knitted a scarf, too. So, going to a gay bar to watch a woman in a catsuit just seems so out of my comfort zone that I realize I am not really qualified to comment other than to say, they seemed to all have fun. And Erika prob has a regular waxing appointment.
Discussing my children’s and my health issues with the intent to provoke doubt or gossip is not OK. I shared my concerns about my children’s health with Kyle on two separate occasions with plenty of opportunity for her to ask questions. She chose to bring it up once again at her barbecue just to stir the pot without any consciousness or consideration about the fact that it was my children she was talking about. Obviously she had discussed this matter with LVP in detail before.
Kyle’s question was initially very harmless. She knew LVP had (or has; we are all unsure now) a close relationship with Mohammed. AND LVP never said she didn’t think the kids did or didn’t have Lyme disease; she said Mohammed had told her they were fine. Fine. Meaning healthy with nothing wrong or fine as in “their health is private and I am not discussing it with anyone” or fine as in “their mother is a kook and has made up illnesses for her kids because she is losing her husband and needs a life.” Either way, LVP didn’t say Yolo was a liar. She just repeated what Mo had told her. Kyle pushed because the explanation was weird and because we knew it would get picked up as the sound bite for the week.
I went to “great lengths” to show Lisa and Kyle my kids’ medical records just to finally shut down the conversation. Our journey is backed up with black and white proof, so if you have time to gossip about such a sensitive subject, why can’t you make time to review the facts of it?
This scene was actually super gross to me and exploited her kids even more. I would be mad if she was my mom! Yolo goes on to tell us how above she is and how she has accepted the people that are beneath her and ignorant because they are not willing to learn everything they can about Lyme disease. She still thinks her kids deserve an apology. I think her kids wish their mom would find a new rich man and STFU.
Erika did what a good friend does: She brought me truthful information which was accurate. There is a difference between talk that is factual and trash talk.
Well, I guess that was the only truthful thing she did cause then she moved on to become a Liar McLiarson.
We have all seen this story unfold in front of our eyes, step by step and it’s simple: Untruths were brought to the table for consideration, provoking doubt and discomfort amongst my friends and in our community.
Are we watching the same show? The only lying I saw came from Yolanda and Erika this episode. The only untruths I saw came out of their mouths. Pot meet kettle. Lemon meet catsuit.
I told Lisa R. about the conversation that had come up at the BBQ regarding my children and she confirmed it…my emotional response is what you saw.
Maybe my expectations are high when it comes to loyalty, but if everyone just chose to stand up for what is right, we wouldn’t still be talking about this subject, right?
Maybe they would be talking about that, but then you chose to lie. Erika chose to lie. We don’t like liars because we are all truthseekers like Meghan (I am currently wearing a headband on my forehead because that is how I seek the truth).
Many of you have asked about CRYOTHERAPY and why I choose this as part of my treatment…For a couple of months after my explant surgery, I used it as a tool to bring down inflammation and speed up healing. It really worked for that particular chapter of my journey.
Oddly enough, I was watching something and saw that some major athletes, LeBron James specifically, uses Cryotherapy. Interesting. I wonder if this is beneficial to people who suffer from Rheumatoid Arthritis and other issues that cause inflammation. But, unfortunately, this therapy is probably way out of my people’s budgets.
“Erika Exacerbated A Contentious Situation”
Here we are once more. Hold my hand as I lead you down the path of this complicated journey.
I love that Lisa wants to hold our hand as we head down this path of accusations, lies and denial. I know holding her hand will make it easier.
So off we trot to cryotherapy to meet Yolanda. Of course it was an incredibly strange experience, but the invitation had been extended, and I accepted, albeit reluctantly, but I wanted to connect with her and feel we were supporting her in her quest for well being.
Little did she know that this was just the appetizer to a very shitty main course. I imagine if LVP had known there was a manila folder hiding its head in Yolanda’s high end bag, she would have high-tailed her arse right outa that Cryo-clinic and found some pink champagne to make it all better. Unfortunately, LVP went into lunch believing all was right with the world.
They were placed in front of me with an accusation that was unjust…I had no idea how Yolanda had reached this conclusion that I would speculate about Bella and Anwar’s constitution.
Yolanda reached this conclusion because she has tried and failed for 3 previous seasons to knock LVP off as the HBIC (Head Bitch In Charge). Oh and she has Eddie Cibrian’s Ex out on Twitter claiming this, too. Cause if I needed defending, that’s the FIRST person I would want fighting my battles.
I would never bring somebody’s children (especially their health) into this very public forum, but Yolanda did…twice…of her OWN volition. She announced that they we were infected with Lyme disease, volunteered the information, first when we had drinks and were introduced to Erika. The second time was with Kyle in the park. Now the first time, initially, I believed was inadvertent. It was just prior to her surgery and she was emotional, she had been talking about her will and survival, and I believed, as sometimes happens, as moments are often captured, you only realize later, often with regret.
Hmph, don’t see any lies there. Meghan has probably contacted her and made sure LVP understands the importance of truth. And I don’t believe Yolanda does anything off handedly; she plans her words and probably practices them in front of her mirror with a glass of 35 veggie juice and a bean salad (this is why she is in the bathroom and not the bedroom).
That was how I perceived this situation to be, but when I saw her consciously initiate the conversation in the park, once more the subject was brought to the forefront which surprised me greatly. As I viewed this, I was incredulous. She has stated don’t bring my kids into this, but she did, twice. At the barbecue, I was asked questions about my perspective, having known the family for years. My understanding was they were healthy until Yolanda informed me otherwise. What else was I supposed to do? Lie? Say I knew nothing? I tried to shut it down, reticent to indulge in a conversation that was really none of my business. Furthermore there was no point in implicating Kyle by stating she questioned me. What was the point? I would deal with this alone. I have loved those children and seeing them prosper from the show and reach their goals has made me very happy, and I am deeply saddened that anyone would think I had nothing but good intentions for them. At some point two years ago I vociferously defended Bella against negativity because of that exact sentiment.
Yolanda is the one ruining LVP’s relationship with her children. Considering how much Yolo can’t stand LVP I am sure she hated that they liked her because of their father. I am sure she has well and truly poisoned them against her now. LVP has protected her kids, but has been open to discussing their issues on their terms. They spoke about the adoption and showed us Pandora’s wedding. I remember seeing Lisa struggle with Max during the first season when he seemed aimlessly undirected. LVP knew Lisa Rinna was going to Yolo’s to own her shit and talk about the M-word. There were many people around them talking about Yolo mainly because of those ridiculous selfies on Instagram!
I never wanted to indulge, but honestly I had sometimes been drawn in, mystified and commented, maybe a few times, but as my loyalty lay with Mohamed and whenever this subject was raised, between Mohamed and me, it was with the utmost respect.
I WOULDA COMMENTED! I think anyone looking at all those pics commented! The sole purpose of those pictures was for Yolanda to get attention – good, bad or indifferent. Whether she is doing it as a “look at me” or “please learn more about Lyme” the pics were and are weird.
So Yolanda had loyalty to her informer, Erika, except Erika had grossly overstated my intent. Had she repeated the scenario in a productive way, hypothetically she would’ve stated “Lisa Vanderpump was uncomfortably trying to shut down a conversation.” Instead, she exacerbated a contentious situation. Yolanda then was guilty by omission as she inferred it was Lisa R who passed this on. Not so.
LVP is really pulling out all the big words and I swear she uses a thesaurus. Why not just say, “My good friend was at the dinner and said you gals were discussing my kids’ health issues. WTF?” Why drag Lisa Rinna into it? Why lie? It wouldn’t have changed why she was pissed. LVP wouldn’t be surprised that Erika repeated what she heard. But Yolanda wouldn’t get the reaction or the attention especially when she knows she isn’t “healthy” enough to be filmed regularly – she has to make sure she is talked about. She is doing a good job there.
We enjoyed the frivolity of the evening and were well entertained by Erika. It would have been easier for Erika to have admitted her doing but understandably the after party was probably not the place. I don’t know why Erika is so judgmental of us all. She would be an easy target as the newbie, but we have welcomed her into this group with open arms, and no, I am not some narrow-minded BH old lady as I have created some of the most innovative gay venues in London, but one more insult as we proceed onwards to join the others.
Erika has been surprisingly judgmental these past few episodes. Just because others don’t wanna dance half nekkid (or ¾ nekkid) doesn’t make them boring old ladies. That sounds like something Eddie Cibrian’s Ex-wife would say. Not nice to throw tea at LVP over the whole “who supports the gays more.”
“I Am Not A Pussy Or A Liar”
I guess Erika has a few names she doesn’t like being called. The See You Next Tuesday word is totally cool, but pussy and liar are not so much.
First off, I am not a pussy or a liar. I never said that Lisa Rinna was the one who said anything about Yolanda’s children.
Yet, that wasn’t the question you were asked. Lisa asked if you had told Yolo about the Lyme/Children/Did Mohammed know conversation. You denied being the one that told so that makes you a liar. Where is Meghan?
I am, however, protective of my friend. When Yolanda asked me what happened at the BBQ, I told her that Kyle and Lisa Vanderpump were talking about Anwar and Bella. What Yolanda goes and does with that information, I do not know. She obviously has every right to confront people who were talking about her children, and she did so without my knowledge. Confronting or attempting to ambush me in my room, at my party, after my performance seems rather contrived. “Getting to the bottom” of this seems to be of great concern to these women, yet no one would be talking about this if it wasn’t for them questioning/talking about Yolanda and her kids in the first place.
While I agree Lisa Rinna’s timing was less than perfect, I still don’t understand why she lied. EVERYTHING IS ON FILM AND WILL COME OUT LATER!
After mulling it over and being the great detectives they are, they realize it’s me who told Yolanda what happened at the BBQ. So what? She’s my friend, she asked what happened, and I told her. Let’s not try to shift the blame on to me in order to detract from their behavior (Mynchausen, kids, etc.). No one in this room needs to pretend to be the victim. These women are not stupid and are quite aware of every move they make and every word they say.
Let’s get this straight. I don’t think Erika is in this to “make friends”. She is doing this because 1. Yolanda gave production her name; and, 2. Her brand. I imagine her YouTube has gotten more hits in the last 6 weeks than it has since she started making videos. And seriously? No one was discussing Bella and Anwar in depth. This wasn’t a, “Wow, who has she been having sex with?” or “Did you see that giant mole on her shoulder?” conversation.
As far as me “shutting down” this conversation…yes it should be shut down, the whole thing. No more talking about the validity of Yolanda’s illness and no more talking about her children’s health. This is not acceptable and it is not the way “friends” treat each other.
Well, if you wanted the conversations shut down, you shoulda done just that. At the BBQ, you sat by and listened attentively, but you said not a word. You collected data to take back to your “good friend” but you didn’t end the conversation. In your room, you could shut down the conversation simply by saying you weren’t gonna talk about it and avoided having to LIE!
I do hope you enjoyed my show. It is such a good time, and I hope you check my schedule to see if I’m performing in a city close to you. Come out, have some fun and dance. Life is too short to focus on the bullsh–.
Nope. I didn’t enjoy the show. I would not enjoy in a bar. I would not enjoy it in a car. I didn’t enjoy it here or there. I didn’t enjoy it anywhere. By the way, Erika, by lying, you created more bullsh–.
