Hi, everyone. First, I want to apologize for not blogging until now, I'm getting familiar with the computer as we go, but your kind comments and thousands of tweets were very encouraging, and I'm looking forward to sharing my thoughts with you each week. I'm so glad to log on and see that the show and all the support that it has and that I make people happy. Like the other ladies have said, seeing everything unfold on-screen has been difficult, and this episode is especially, hard to watch and very emotional for me.
Before I get into the whole Kyle and Camille situation, I just want to talk about my jewelry line and the bracelets I gave out New York City. No they didn't come with an apology, they were never intended for that. I'm really very passionate about the jewelry, and this means a lot to me. This line has been something I've been working on since 2002 when my mother passed away. Taylor's comments really hurt me because the bracelets had nothing to do with the confrontation the night before. I wanted my sister to be one of the first to have one, and figured it would be nice to give the girls on the trip one as well, in honor of my mother’s birthday, which was the day we had been traveling. I didn't want to give them out on the plane because they are so important to, and it just happened that the fight overshadowed how they were intended.
Before the trip, I really had no idea what was coming. I hadn't talked to the girls since Vegas, so when I sat down next to Taylor, I was surprised to hear that this was still an issue. I was honestly confused about the situation. I hadn’t been in the loop.
When we arrived in New York at the hotel Camille was very gracious and greeted us, and brought us up to the suite and gave us t-shirts. And I was completely under the impression that everything was going to be fine. And to top it off Kyle and Camille having their moment, seemed to confirm that everything was going to be ok. It was one in the morning and we were all tired from traveling, so I was surprised when everybody wanted to go to eat.
At this you point, you all know that Kyle and I -- we are very different. Whereas Kyle reacts, I don't like confrontation and withdraw. I didn't want to get involved. These are Kyle friend's and I'm getting to know them. When everyone was there pointing the finger at me, and saying, "Kim, settle this," I didn't know what to say. In those moments of confrontation, I don't know where to start, so I usually don't. When Kyle gets emotional, I always tell her: "Don't go there. Stay in your place. Stay in your moment. Stay Kyle." I don't want her emotions to get the best of her. But, Kyle is my sister. We don't always get along. We fight. But, she's mine, and I love her. And I always will have her back.
I also want to send my condolences to Adrienne and her family. That was obviously difficult for them, and my heart goes out to her.
It's been so odd to have this all play out again on TV, as Kyle and I continue to try to work through our differences. But like Kyle said, that's what sisters do.
when I read this comment,it stinks -inside- so it is probaly someone close to you....so do not bother......hate people writing in such terms - shouting out in front of the computer:)) US_DOJ_Gov You claim you "didn't know what to say?" - JUST SAY WHAT YOU SAW & HEARD DURING THE LAS VEGAS PLANE RIDE HOME.... That simple
Kim, Buy a dog and move to Hwaii or Alaska - there are nothing wrong with you...and do not go to rehab cause the family want it.......... Go so far you can from the people that treats you as a child - Spend the next year with your own compay - go for walks in the beach wiith the dog and forget abut evil sisters. Take one day at a time. Good Luck. Li firstname.lastname@example.org
Kimmy...you're so sweet. BUT...you left your sister hanging. She is blood. That would be like leaving one of your kids hanging when someone is attacking them. You two can fight and you can be different but when she asks you to have her back you need to step up. She deserves an apology sweetie. Can't wait to see more of you.
Kyle is so mean to you. Stop letting her tramp all over you. Just becaue you are divorce does not make you half of a women or half of a person. Kyle needs to stay out of your business when it comes to your relationship with your daughter.
Kim I just adore you and am so happy that you are finally blogging!! I completely understand how difficult and complex relationships with sisters are, and I totally relate to you and Kyle! I believe Taylor has been very rude to you and just doesn't understand you for whatever reason. Oh well, I hope you don't let that bother you because Taylor's defiantely not worth it. Love you (and your sister and Lisa). Can't wait to see what's to come with you!!
No one likes confrontation, but it is usually best to deal with it quickly and move on. It is a part of being a mature adult.
Kim, It looked pretty bad when you did not defend your sister. I have four older sister's and we always stand by one another, we don't lie, but if we were right there at the moment and someone lied about something said....Not in my presence! I would be calm, tactful, and shame them for lying. LOL
The poor woman has so many issue's but still Kyle had no right being called a liar and for Camille to dish her husband on television. I hope her divorcing husband understands by watching this and not punish your sister's family by not giving him his business.
Sorry about your mother's passing, the jewelry looked great, and I wish your family the best.
I'm trying to hard to like Kim, but she's making it more and more difficult. Clearly she did not have Kyle's back in this episode. She left her sister hanging! She could have easily settled things, but by not stepping up, it not only made Kyle feel bad, it probably made Camille think she was right. Afterall, if you're own sister won't support you, than.....
I don't know Kim. You're the big sister, just like Kelly Ripa said on WWH. I hope somehow you gain some self confidence, and learn to stand on your own feet and when you say you have your sister's back...do it.
Hi Kim! Nice to see you blogging on here! I understand how you would not want to comment on the Kyle and Camille situation. It was probably best not to get in the middle of that. I am kind of the same way...if in doubt - don't say anything especially if I am not in the argument/feud. Hey...I remember you in the movies as a kid! So interesting to see you and hear about your life now. Your kids are beautiful! So are Kyle's. I think it is soooo interesting that your kids are mostly blondes and Kyle's are brunettes! Love it! And, I had no idea about the connection to Paris til right before the show started. You and Kyle and Paris definitely have share a resemblance. And of course Kathy Hilton too..had no idea she was your older sister. Well, what a beautiful family you all have! And it seems mostly women/girls...my family is very female dominate as well. Take care...try different things...and I know how hard it is to date! I am single and actually purposely go 1-2 yrs. at a time in between dates/relationships...sometimes longer. I hate dating...and did internet dating and am soooo over it! Hope you find the love of your life soon!
Best wishes, Kim San Diego, CA
Dear Kim, It's so awesome to read your blog!!! Honey, we have been missing you, but are glad you are here now. Thanks for your insights. So beautiful were those bracelets you gave to Kyle. Anyone would love those. . . For those of us who have siblings, it is very clear that you and Kyle love each other. Anyone who has a sibling can see that because we have all had our 'moments' with the ones we love the most. WE LOVE YOU KIM!!! Best, Aloha808
Absolutely love you Kim! You are so sweet and sincere. I love that you are so involved with your children. I felt bad for you when you were in your room alone in Vegas. You seemed sad. I too am a single mother. I have been divorced since my son was 2. I have a 13 year old son and I will not date until he is 18. I have been in your situation many many times! :( It is all so worth it to me though because I want to give my son all my attention. I figure it is better that I miss out on something than to have him miss out on me. You only have so much time with your children while they are young. You and your sister are very sweet. You seem to love each other a lot. I have 3 sisters of my own and yes, sisters sometimes fight but always have each other's back. I can't wait to see more of you on this show. It seems like you are really coming out of your shell!
So glad you're blogging!!! I have two sisters and just like you and Kyle, we have our differences. I'm thankful we don't have cameras following us around and catching our arguments...it would be painful at times to watch. I just wish that you had someone else on the show (like Kyle has with Lisa) that you were "tight" with so you wouldn't feel so excluded. Perhaps next season.
I imagine Taylor's bullying was tough on you during filming, but trust me....the world can see her for the snake she is.
Kim, If I were Kyle I would be pissed at you! Why would you sit there and not defend your sister, if in fact, she didn't say those things. I know that you guys have your spats, but at the end of the day, she is your sister, and you should always have her back, if she is right. That was cowardice of you not to set the record straight with Camille, I'm sure that Kyle would have had your back.
You claim you "didn't know what to say?" - JUST SAY WHAT YOU SAW & HEARD DURING THE LAS VEGAS PLANE RIDE HOME.... That simple!
Kim, you and Kyle come off as the most genuine on the show. I am glad you two have one another. I think Taylor added fuel to the fire when her and Camille were alone. You were coming from a genuine place at the airport AND Taylor acted like she agreed and then runs and tells Camille with it all being out of context? Can we say Oklahoma Drama Queen. I think it came across that you don't like confrontation on tonight's and the other episodes. Socially, I relate with you as I too can be shy around new people. I love watching you on the show - I grew up with the Witch Mountain movies! I hope we will see you having some fun in the next couple episodes and the drama can be put to rest.
Hello Miss Kim, Blood is thicker than anything. You should have spoke up for your sister with Camille. Oh my.. you were there!
You do not owe anyone an apology, you are great! I just wish you didnt appear so sad all the time, are you sad? ...I hope not because I truly believe you are a great person.
Kim, You are such a good sister to Kyle. It would be tough to let her have her say at your expense all the time, that would get old fast! You are started on a new path in life, in your new home. Don't look back, continue to move forward and love yourself, believe in yourself, and know that you are strong and capable. You always have been. I wish you all the best in life, and especially a nice man to share it with. Keep the faith, he is out there and you are worthy! I know you love Kyle but really, she can be a brat. Don't let her walk on you!
Good to see you blogging, Kim!!! You will probably have the MOST comments by the weekend! You have the most BEAUTIFUL children! There is something very sweet about you. You and Kyle remind me of me and my sister. Kyle is a little judgmental and self righteous whereas you go with the flow. Oh well, you are doing the best you can with your life! MUCH love 2 you from Northern Cali!
Kim, You seem like a really sweet lady. Don't let your reserved nature be mistaken for weakness. I have two sisters and yes, we too fight. I am the oldest and my sisters sometime pick on me for being such a square, but they would never belittle or insult me the way Kyle does you (especially not in public). Kyle should be a little more sensitive. It breaks my heart that she could not even thank you for the gift of the beautiful bracelet. She was so caught up in her own ridiculous cat fight, that she let her meanness boil over to you.
So happy to see your first blog! It's been nice to see you on the show since I was a fan as a little girl and always wondered what happened to you? I am very close with my younger sister too (we are 1 year apart). We are very protective of each other and will always have the other's back. I'm so glad you and Kyle are able to get back to that place even when you disagree. There is NOTHING like a sister and family is the most important thing in the world. Wishing you all the best!
Hang in there Kim, and I agree that you should always support your sister, even in the stressful times, because eventually, it always blows over, and you won't regret not being there for each other when it does. I have a sister too, and we are very different, but we get through similar situations, and in the long run, we are still in a great place. I feel bad for girls who don't have sisters, or friends close enough to call "sisters", because it pays to put in the energy and work to keep these relationships strong! I think the viewers can see how much you two love and care about each other. I love watching your show, and watching you deal with each other during these "stressful" (if you want to call it that) situations. Keep true to yourself and all the cards will fall gently into place!
As much as you tell Kyle that she doesn't support you when issues come up with your kids and what not, you definitely did not support her when she needed you.
I don't doubt that you are sisters who love one another but you need to practice what you preach.
Glad to see you are blogging. I never intended to watch a housewives show until I found out you and Kyle were gonna be on it. It breaks my heart to see how some of the other housewives act toward you and I can relate to not knowing how to act around new people, some people just don't get it. Anyway, here's hoping there will be a season 2 with you and Kyle.

Those of us who have sisters and/or had sisters KNOW that your and Kyle's relationship is perfectly normal. You bicker, you make up, you laugh about the bickering, and then you start all over again. The thing is.....you love each other and it's obvious you love your sis and she loves you. If anyone outside your relationship doesn't get it.....they either don't have a sister or don't want to get it.
Kim, glad to see you are blogging. I never would have expected to watch one of these housewife shows, that is, not until I learned you and Kyle would be on it. I love Watcher in the Woods and Witch Mountain when i was younger. It breaks my heart to see how some of the other women act toward you, and I can relate to your not making friends so easily. I know how uneasy it can be in a group of new people. Here's hoping you and Kyle will stick around for another season.

Kim, You seem so sweet and kind hearted and I don't blame you for not wanting to jump into that mess. Good luck with your jewelry line. I'm sorry that something that meant so much to you was lost in the drama. I thought it was a super sweet gesture on your part and it was so sad that no one really acknowledged it. Watch out for that Taylor and keep working on your relationship with your sister.
You do appear to be the outsider amoung Lisa, Kyle, and Taylor (Camille seems to be the outside of everyone). I would not want to get in the middle of that fight either, sister or no sister. Besides Kyle seems so strong, I wouldn't think she would need help from anybody. Would be nice to see Kyle be more supportive of you!! Thus far, I have not seen it. But good luck with your relationship with her...would be nice to see a little more compassion from Kyle toward you. This is a fight between Camille and Kyle and thats where it should stay. Obviously they are never going to agree, and I don't think Camille would believe you even if you said Kyle didn't say it. I think Kyle and Camille just don't click...and are looking for reasons to pick at each other. I think Taylor backstabbed everyone, stirred up the pot and then through Kim under the bus. Lisa is appalled at Kim not standing up for Kyle...Lisa should stay out of the sisters business and not take sides. Way to many people involved in this.
Hi Kim! It's great you're finally blogging. I'm the same way when it comes to computers. Thank God my husband is a computer engineer and our kids are computer experts as well. But what kid today isn't right? I'm very much like you, so non-confrontational. But stay yourself, don't ever let anyone intimidate you into being someone you're not. I think Kyle is blessed to have you as a sister and the kids to have you as their mom. I haven't watched the episode, but it's recorded weekly on our dvr, but am excited to see the jewelry. I am definitely a fashionista and I enjoy all girly stuff. Take care. Looking forward to every episode. God bless!
So glad you finally joined the blog, Kim. Though I don't believe you are a bad person in any way, and can respect your position on dodging confrontation and drama, there comes a times in all our lives when we are faced with the moment of defining ourselves, our beliefs, even merely supporting or defending the ones we love, especially when we KNOW they are right. I would bet nothing less than my life that if this drama was unfolding in front of you with one of your children....you would not hesitate to jump in the ring and throw some punches. I am a mother of 17 year old boy, I am still more than willing to defend my son's honor and character. How sad that you would not be willing to do the same for your sister, clearly someone who has been a significant part of your life for many years. As we all have at times in our lives, you should really do some some soul-searching into the core of you as a person, your purpose on this earth, and your commitment to family. I certainly have had to confront myself with this not so long ago. I learned a lot about myself and have become a much better person by doing so. Still love you.
Kim!! thanks for blogging!
It's good to see you finally blogging. I happen to really like you. I can see the anxiety in your face during those awkward moments, and my heart goes out to you.
It is obvious that you don't like confrontation, and that is alright. I'm sure no one likes it, but some people are very uncomfortable and that is you. It's cool. Just stay true to you.
I think the bracelets were a beautiful gesture in honor of your Mother, and it saddened me to see that the moment wasn't right. If nothing else, at the end of the day, your intentions were good and I'm sure that your sister knows this.
Keep blogging. You're sweet. Paris looks so much like you, it's amazing. So are you.
Kim, you are my favorite house wife. I love your past roles and performances and I have often hoped for your reprisal. You have so much talent and it's no wonder you were sought after in the 70's - 90's.
I work behind the scenes on movies and tv and I just took a break due to my daughter's recent birth so I understand why you put the career away. It's a lot of grueling hours and emotional drainage. Sometimes you must put real life first. The world of making movies and television really can screw a gal's life up. I know that firsthand. Motherhood is a job in itself.
I wish you well. I don't know how accurately you are portrayed on the program but your blog will be very helpful to us, the viewers.
Please continue to be yourself. And perhaps after the season ends, you could take on some more dramatic roles? That would be wonderful.
Yours, Beth from NYC
The truth will set you free. You should have said something instead of looking like a deer caught in the headlight. Duh.If I were your sister, I would be pissed too. You have a mouth to speak, just open it!
Kim - There is so much more to you then you show us - and I have seen it since we were younger (Me just being a kid your age watching one of your several sitcom shows - not an actress) - I love your honesty - I would love to see you o walk in your power - I mean really walk in it (no acting ) I love that you did this show - faced your fears and did it - knowing that your sis would be throwing you in the middle of the stage - as she deeply wants you to walk in your power too - she has gotten confused over the years and thinks she is the older sister - she has made better life choices - because she has learned from your mistakes - and I adore her too - but you need to step up to her - and she needs to let go of the feeling that you are this child that she must provide care for - get a nurse - get a personal assistant – help your sis remember that she is your little sister - once you do this it will allow you and Kyle to become closer than ever Adore you angel! Keep on keeping on!
I have an older sister and I think if cameras followed us around it would be the same way. We fight, make up fight make up.... That's what sisters do. It's totally obvious the two of you love each other and are close and if anyone else says different, then they obviously are not close to their siblings or don't have any! Mr. Right is around the corner for you, I can feel it! By the way, loved the leopard dress in last weeks episode!
Kim, I'm glad you finally wrote a blog. I was never a childstar but I am a middle child between two strong-willed sister and I also tend to withdraw in confrontation. I think you're story is very interesting and I hope they show more with you and your kids. I also hope that you find love and happiness.
I am not even going to read your blog post Kim. Buck Up! You were my favorite actress as a kid- we are the same age. Please realize you could be fan favorite if you stopped being so scared. You act like you have had very hard times. I understand that, Post trama stress syndrome- I understand it, 25 years later I am still spooked by my kid in the hallway, love !
Kim I know all about sisters but I do not understand how it all turned around to came back on you. It doesn't matter what anyone says anyway, Camille will turn it all around and must have alot of insecurites. I think that Taylor and Camille both are insecure and live in their husbands shadows. So just say, WHO ARE THEY AND WHY DOES ANYONE CARE WHAT THEY THINK? They are bored and looking for attention that they do not get from their husbands so they are jealous of the wives that have someone that cares about them.
I really think you should have defended your sister. It seems a little cowardly to say "I didn't want to get involved"....not very nice or sisterly!
Kim, I actually had not planned to watch the Beverly Hills Housewives. I didn't think women from Beverly Hills could possibly be as interesting as some of the others. THE reason that I decided to tune in was because I found out that YOU were the cute little girl that I had watched as a kid playing Prudence on Nanny and the Professor. Later I watched you in other shows as well. That is why I watched in the first place. But ya'll have been some of my favorite "housewives". I DO feel in some ways that I relate the most to you. I don't like it when I feel no one seems to have your back at times. I DO think it seems that everyone knew each other before the show accept maybe you. I hope you will be able to get closer to the different ones as the show progresses. ( You also seem to be a good Mother.)
Well, I just wanted to let you know all of that. : ) "Momart"
Kim, I still think you should have backed Kyle up and, told camille that you didn"t hear her say that. Camille clearly has serious insecurity issues and, is very jealous of Kyle. she likes to hang around men because she can be the center of attention its all about Camille and you and your sister are so gorgeous and she is very insecure around Kyle.
