"The strength of the slap was not the issue," Vanderpump wrote in a blog for Bravo

Though it was done in jest, Brandi Glanville fully slapped Lisa Vanderpump in the face on Tuesday’s episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

During an evening that was ostensibly about bonding, burying the hatchet and eliminating drama, it was still an episode of RHOBH – so, everyone left upset.

In a blog for Bravo, Vanderpump, 54, acknowledged that it wasn’t the force of the slap that bothered her, but the “violation” inherent in the act. “I haven’t had a hand laid on me since I was a child,” she wrote.

“Also, I might add that it seems ironic that this is the same person that constantly reiterates to Kyle [Richards], ‘Don’t touch me.’ Might seem a tad hypocritical.”

Left “shocked” and “reeling,” Vanderpump wrote that she “felt ridiculous. I don’t want my reaction to supersede the action – it wasn’t that hard. So why did it provoke such an emotional response?”

Essentially, Vanderpump feels that Glanville’s actions were reminiscent of last year’s “fiasco” and that her attempts to “infiltrate” Vanderpump’s friendship with Richards have finally crossed the line.

Vanderpump also threw in a dig at Glanville’s “self-mutilation which she often complains about, the self-destruction as she digs into her face and the destruction of relationships close to her.”

In her own blog, Glanville admitted that she “f—ed up. I own that.”

However, she claims that “Lisa V. is two different people. One is the lewd, bawdy English chick with the wicked sense of humor that I love [Then] we have a second Lisa V. who pretends a colorful joke is a serious insult.”

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs Tuesdays (9 p.m. ET) on Bravo.
