Does Lisa Vanderpump regret calling Kyle Richards’ friend Faye Resnick an orangutan? In her latest blog post, recapping Tuesday night’s episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Lisa talked about her feelings regarding Faye and Kyle’s claim that Lisa is holding onto a grudge.
On the latest episode, Lisa, in her home, confronted Kyle about not telling her that Faye was going to be at her BBQ.
“You know! You know I have an issue with Faye Resnick … You could’ve said to me, ‘I’m having a dinner and Faye Resnick is gonna be there. I’m letting that orangutan out of her cage.’ I don’t like her.”
Kyle quickly told Lisa that her calling Faye an orangutan was a low blow.
As viewers saw on last week’s episode, Lisa was not happy upon seeing Faye at Kyle’s BBQ party. Several seasons earlier, Faye accused Lisa, who at the time was feuding with Kyle, of using Brandi Glanville to doing her dirty work and being a chess master. The accusation came during Lisa’s vow renewal/30th wedding anniversary, which Lisa obviously did not appreciate. At Kyle’s BBQ, Faye told Lisa that she was just defending her friend at the time. Lisa agreed to move forward. Yet, Lisa made clear in her interviews that she still did not like Faye, and wasn’t going to forget what she did.
In her blog, in regards to Kyle and Kathryn Edwards arguing about Faye at the Moulin Rouge-themed party, Lisa explained why she didn’t step in. Lisa also poked fun at Faye’s “orangeness,” which brings to her mind an orangutan. It seems that Lisa still has no intentions of being friends with Faye.
“I wasn’t siding with the new girl as Kyle stated, and Kyle wasn’t being attacked. She had no need for me to step in. It was a difference of opinion regarding that contentious character, which I had rather rudely referred to as an orangutan earlier. Shame on me, I shouldn’t have… but I did. Her orangeness always conjures up that picture in my head. I should delete it and apologize. I should, but I won’t.”
As for Kyle Richards saying that she’s holding onto a grudge, Lisa Vanderpump said that it’s her prerogative to decide when to move forward with Faye Resnick. Lisa suggested that Kyle is saying that she’s holding a grudge in order to paint her in a negative light.
“We don’t have to embrace everybody. It’s not ‘holding a grudge’ as Kyle frequently states, perhaps in order to paint me in a negative light. I believe, as you reconcile your feelings that have been provoked by somebody, you can move forward, and moving forward without them is your prerogative.”
On both last and this week’s episodes of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Kyle Richards has defended Faye to Lisa and Kathryn. While Lisa has a problem with Faye because of what she said to her at her anniversary party, Kathryn has a problem with Faye because of what she wrote about her in her book, Nicole Brown Simpson: The Private Diary of a Life Interrupted. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Kyle has said that Lisa and Kathryn should stop holding onto the past.
Yet, Lisa Vanderpump pointed out in her blog that she can only go by her personal experience with Faye Resnick.
“Her reputation absolutely precedes her, but that withstanding was not how I formed my opinion. It was my experience that I drew from–the sly confrontation at our vowel renewal–that lingered, tainting what was a special evening.”
