Lisa Vanderpump and the rest of the ladies on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are back for season 3 of the reality show. In the premiere episode Lisa had a party celebrating the three-year anniversary of her restaurant of Villa Blanca. It didn't go without some of its own drama since she left Adrienne Maloof out. The two women had a falling out in season 2 when accusations flew from Adrienne that Lisa sold stories to the tabloids.
Lisa updated her blog on BRAVO after the first RHOBH episode when Adrienne sent a huge floral arrangement to her during the anniversary party she wasn't invited to.
"I knew as I planned our third anniversary party at Villa Blanca that inviting Adrienne would not only be hypocritical but, at best, an uneasy, awkward meeting that would cast a negative slant on what was supposed to be, a joyous occasion. I hadn't seen her socially since that day, certainly she had never reached out, she had hosted an event with the other girls in Vegas and I understood the friendships to be divided. I was not of the mind to invite her just because filming was beginning."
How did she feel about the flowers Adrienne had delivered?
"Look I know it was a statement but regardless of that I saw it as a step in the right direction, not the way I would've handled it but we are clearly very different people. I knew many poked fun at the arrangement, being the fact that my restaurant is called Villa Blanca. . .white! Also anybody who knows me knows I love pink!"
Adrienne Maloof had a reason for sending the gift which made everyone gasp. It temporarily brought attention to the fact she wasn't invited and steered the focus off Lisa Vanderpump momentarily. It was a rather calculating approach that won't help her relationship with Lisa. Makes viewers wonder what else is to come in season 3!
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 3 airs Monday nights on BRAVO at 9 p.m., ET/6 p.m., PT.
