Lisa Vanderpump spoke exclusively to RumorFix about Monday night’s highly dramatic episode of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, saying that she hopes the audience now understands why she didn’t like Russell Armstrong in season one.
In the episode, Taylor Armstrong confronted Lisa at her tea party and accused her of being a bad friend. The argument spiraled into an intervention where Camille Grammer finally confronted Taylor about the alleged physical abuse she was suffering at Russell’s hands.
“I always knew there was volatility in the marriage, I was worried for her,” Lisa tells RumorFix. She even offered Taylor and her daughter Kennedy a place to stay. “I kept saying “Maybe we’re not the closest of friends, however … if you need a place to stay.”
Although things got tense on Monday’s show, Lisa tells us she and Taylor are “in a pretty good place.” Lisa adds, “Nothing can diminish the tragedy which happened, I feel very sorry for her – Taylor and her little girl.”
We caught up with the restaurant owner Monday night at Barnes and Noble at The Grove in Los Angeles as more than 200 fans stood in line to meet the housewife and purchase a signed copy of her new book, Simply Divine: A Guide to Easy, Elegant, and Affordable Entertaining.
