Exclusive! Cedric Martinez Tells His Side of the Lisa Vanderpump Story
As if the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills didn’t have enough drama this season, everybody’s favorite ousted houseboy Cedric Martinez is back in all his glory — and he’s talking exclusively to Wetpaint Entertainment!
For those of you who have been on Mars, Cedric was a regular on Season 1 as an unofficial member of the Vanderpump-Todd household. As the RHoBH season progressed, Ken convinced Lisa to ask Cedric to move out, saying he had sponged off of them long enough. Ouch! Now that Season 2 is underway, Cedric is back in the picture by way of his friendship with new cast member Brandi Glanville and some less-than-flattering remarks Lisa has made about him. Lisa says she hasn’t seen Cedric, who she once considered “family,” since their falling out, but she’s sure he’ll “go a long way to find another idiot like me.” The usually loquacious Cedric has not spoken back, however — until now.
“It was a rough year,” says Cedric, “but I've landed on my feet. Ken stabbed me in the back and Lisa twisted the knife, but they didn't kill me.” The former houseguest now a place of his own and a job he loves. And that’s not all: He’s got a tell-all memoir in the works.
Cedric says that Lisa not only planted negative stories about him in the tabloids, but she also talked to the media about Taylor Armstrong’s marital troubles, an act that anyone following Season 2 knows Taylor herself believes to have happened. "Absolutely!" says Cedric. “There's no question about it. I've known Lisa has Us Weekly on speed dial since she sold out my relationship with Lance Bass.”
When contacted by Wetpaint Entertainment to comment on the remarks, a representative for Lisa Vanderpump declined to return our call.
Cedric will make an appearance later on in Season 2, but in the meantime, he is watching the show closely and has some concerns. Take Kim Richards. “Anyone watching this season knows drinking is the least of her problems,” says Cedric. “I hope and pray she gets the help she so desperately needs.”
