The “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” (RHOBH) Season 5’s 17th episode entitled “Amster-damn Slap” is a shocking one (that’s for sure!). Brandi Glanville slapping somebody seems normal enough. But doing it to the elegant Lisa Vanderpump? As how Bravo describes it, that was indeed “the final straw.” Read on to know Vanderpump’s thoughts.
Vanderpump wrote on her Bravo blog (before the crazy part) that she just flew back from Sacramento after receiving the Woman of the Year award at State Assembly. It is hard to imagine that the recipient can slap somebody back.
The reality star proceeded immediately to the controversial slap in Amsterdam “that could be heard echoing through the Hills of Beverly” (good one, Lisa!). She admitted having a tiny scratch on her upper lip because of Glanville’s “acrylic claws” but denied that the slap’s intensity is the issue. Despite being pushed before the slap, her main point is “the violation.”
“I haven’t had a hand laid on me since I was a child,” Vanderpump wrote (okay, now, that’s horrifying and enraging).
Vanderpump added that Glanville kept on telling Kyle Richards in their past fights, “Don’t touch me,” which becomes “a tad hypocritical.”
The Bravo star admitted being shocked and rushing to the men’s restroom (unconsciously) to cry. She wanted to hide her tears because she did not want to give the impression that the slap was hard.
“I felt ridiculous…it wasn’t that hard. So why did it provoke such an emotional response?” Vanderpump stated.
For the juicy part, Vanderpump revealed some scandalous remarks from Glanville during their shopping trip earlier that day. Glanville told her that Richards was gossiping that Vanderpump had an affair with her trainer. Vanderpump thought it was ridiculous and denied it completely. She would never believe that Richards managed to say that and emphasized that she did not have a trainer.
Then, Vanderpump slowly realized that Glanville was trying to break her closeness with Richards. She also could not handle Glanville calling her a cheater (in public, of all places) because she is committed to Ken Todd for 33 years. She felt that Eileen Davidson encountered a similar thing when Glanville claimed that she is “a homewrecker.”
Vanderpump explained that she rejected Glanville’s kiss because the diva might claim that they made out.
The Palm Spring’s Walk of Stars recipient wrote that she talked about the slap with Richards while eating pancakes. Both agreed that the line has been crossed. Vanderpump is disappointed, thinking that she gave Glanville another chance after the fiasco last year.
