Lisa Vanderpump and Brandi Glanville's friendship has seen numerous ups and downs over the years on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, as they were once besties and then had a major falling out. However, Lisa says she would still defend Brandi to Joyce Giraud if she had it to do over again.

Lisa realizes that viewers know that she and Brandi are no longer close. "It seems strange to me now, as many of you have seen the negativity that has been in the press from someone [i.e., Brandi] who [Ken and I] defended to the point of compromising our integrity," Lisa writes in her Bravo blog.

"I would say lesson learned  however, I am an incredibly loyal person and would probably make the same mistake again," Lisa continues. Sounds kinda like a backhanded compliment to Brandi, no?

Lisa writes that she decided to "ask Joyce for forgiveness" this week and that their meeting at her home went well. "I was starting to warm to [Joyce] and understand her point of view  and our relationship definitely improved as a result of that conversation," Lisa says. "She was absolutely correct in the statement  that I made excuses for Brandi, and there was no getting away from that."

Okay, so it's clear that Lisa and Brandi are still having issues and are not currently getting along. Still, it's nice to hear that Lisa doesn't regret defending Brandi. Baby steps, right?

Do you think Lisa was right to defend Brandi?
