I hope you all had a wonderful holiday.
So far this year is starting off with a bang. We just taped the Reunion show on January 4. Emotionally draining to say the least.
Now, on to this week's episode! Camille invited us out to her house for lunch and a day of tennis. I really have been wanting to put Camille and my issues behind us.
I was nervous to go but took comfort in the fact that my husband and children were by my side. I think that Camille is also tired of everything we've gone through together, and was honestly trying to make an effort.
For the record, I jumped in the pool because I had a feeling I was going to be thrown in. I figured I would beat them to it! It ended up being a nice day. I left there feeling like we were on the right track, finally. Only time will tell if we can STAY on the right track.
Lisa and Ken invited us to Pandora's birthday at Sur. Farrah and I were sure Jason was going to pop the question to Pandora right there! They're an adorable couple and I know we were all hoping he would. We were all staring at him like, "Wheres the ring?!" Haha. Poor guy!
I decided to ask Cedric about his childhood because he had been telling me he wanted to share his story with me. I was shocked to hear the details of what he endured as a child. I know that Lisa and Ken have opened their hearts and their home to him and now understood why. My heart also went out went to him.
Kyle, I just wanted to reach out to tell you how much I respect you. Each week, I am more in awe of how you have held your composure with Camille. I think you have shown that you are such a bigger person than her and in a much better place in your life. Every week that they show Camille on the sidebar saying how jealous you are, I just want to hurl. She is so transparent in her jealousy of you. Anyway, you have shown such integrity through all her jabs, ugliness and indignance. I love watching the show because of you, Lisa, Tyler and Adrianne. You guys are soooo much fun and I love the sincerity of all of you. Pre-dinner party from hell, I was hopeful that Camille would come around and knock off the b.s. but as time has gone on, I don't believe she has a genuine bone in her body. The one thing I'm curious about though (and hoping you'll address in your next blog) is...now that the series has been recorded, does Mauricio see how you got drug through the mud by her? I just wonder because, while he is obviously supportive of you, he did make the statement to you that "this wasn't like you". I know he hadn't seen the shows yet to know that it wasn't you so I'm just curious. I just can't help but think he would be shocked at her behavior.
You're great Kyle and Kim is too. I hope she can come out of her shell a little more. I think she is so afraid of the things she doesn't know. My sister's name is Kim and we are opposites in our own way. She's a lawyer and I am a pro singer/songwriter but we love each other dearly and we are so proud that we are sisters (even if I am adopted) HA!
Poor Camele just doesn't know this kind of unconditional love.
Happy New Year.
You have a beautiful family and I really enjoyed seeing all of you at your White Party. Can't wait for the reunion show!!!! Love those green earrings you were wearing! BH is my favorite show!!!
What an absolutely amazing White Party; kudos to you and a belated Happy Birthday to Mauricio!
Not trying to sound negative but I honestly don't hold out much hope for the friendship with Camille staying on the right track. She appears to be just too unpredictable and processes situations quite differently from others; denial perhaps?
Investing more of your time into your relationships with the other wives would be more rewarding and worthwhile for you. Be civil and courteous to Camille but don't actively pursue a relationship with her. For the amount of time, effort and care involved to do that, there is simply not enough of a return.
I believe you were spot on in your observation of 'oil and water.' In life, there are people we just don't get along with for whatever reason. Instead of constantly being emotionally drained and wondering if something you say might be misinterpreted, I would just move on. Life is just too short for that type of thing. All the best to you, you are awesome.
KYLE!!! I am in the middle of watching tonights show! Ur family is so beautiful! If I have more to say later I will come back!
Do you happen to remember what brand the purple sequin dress that your beautiful daughter Farrah was wearing when she was sitting next to you at the dinner with Lisa on this episode?
I believe Cedric, from somebody who comes from an abusive upbringing, his story seems to real to me, but of course time will tell, although if Lisa and Ken have known him now for 15+ years, it seems like the ball would of dropped by now. Loved your party, I hope Kim hooks up with Martin, he seems sweet, and again Taylor made me cry, I hope you become good friends with her, she seems so sweet.
Kyle i think you are an amazing woman! I only wish i could have attended that party it looked fabulous! As for your tiff with Camille...why are you trying so hard to be friends (Besides the business side with your husband). She's crazy, rude and a not very dignified. Why would you want to be friends with someone like that? You seem to be a great mom, wife and friend. Anyone should treat you with respect and cherish you as a friend; not put words in your mouth and be a drama queen. P.S- Anyone ever tell you you look a lot like Demi Moore? (Gorgeous!)
I love Kyles personality. SShe's straight forward and lots of fun to be around with. Btw, gosh she looks like Demi Moore soooo much.~ stunning beauty.
I think we are all tired of the bickering....I only hope that Bravo has the missing footage of what really happened, and what was really said in Vagas. That said, I want you to know that I have loved tuning in to see you and your beautiful family. I am 100% team Kyle....lol.Have you heard from Celsey , weither he will be using your husband or was that all Camile's doing? Heres fingers crossed that Andy will show what really happened to start the feud, at the reunion show....See ya next week
You enjoy life! Great to see how it should be done. I can see that you do not tollerate b.s. When people get crazy around you, take the high road and you will be better for it. :)
Your White Party was lovely! You and Mauricio looked really sweet dancing together. You two are such a great match!
I agree with you about Camille kissing other womens husbands on the lips. If Camille did that to my husband, she would see next week in a flash.
Watch your back..it is ok that you and Camille are trying to be sociable, but she has an agenda and it is ugly. She has not forgiven you and it is obvious in the way she interacts with you and your husband. She would try to do anything to hurt you and that may include, through your husband. I am sure Mauricio is stronger than that and loves you too much to be sucked into a vendetta, but I wouldn't trust Camille as far as I could throw her. That snarky comment about swimsuits and jealousy was the true Camille. I can't believe she has the gall to even brag about her body when we all know that she paid someone to carry her kids. Sad for her that she paid someone to miss out on the true essence of being a real woman all in the name of vanity. You have an amazing body and one that is truly more beautiful than she could ever hope to have. You win all the way around. You got to experience the wonderful event of real motherhood and have a better physical appearance than she does. It is obvious that she has no maternal bond to her kids. She never talks about them and from what we can see, never spends any time with them. Her nannies are the closest thing to a mother that those kids have. You on the other hand are all about your babies and I find that refreshing. Don't be deluded into thinking that she wanted to go to your party, it was all about insulting you with that stupid book, which is why she left early. Bronchitis, Bullcrap..never heard her cough one time. You handled it very well and I am sure that ticked her off. If you had gotten her that book, she would have heard you say "You are a terrible person when you deal with people, so read this!!" Of course, you wouldn't have said it, but somehow or another she would have heard it!! She is all about jabs and being catty and when anyone responds to it, she becomes the victim. (again). The best way to deal with her is to be indifferent to her. Once you realize that she doesn't matter, then the things that she does will mean nothing. People like her need an audience. If she doesn't have one in you, she will get bored and move on to her next target.
Kyle, you are definitely an amazing friend. I really admire the way you talked to Taylor about her marriage. You didn't overstep or understep any boundaries. It was clear that you're just there for your friends. In terms of your relationship with your sister, I identify with Kim as I'm a middle child and my sisters are more extroverted than me but I understand your perspective wanting to protect your sister, your family. Thanks for being on the show.
Kyle, I commend you for trying so desperately to figure out whats up with Camille. I really hate to say this, but have you noticed how Camille acts - be honest - you were right - she needs a therapist and she needed it 4 or 5 years ago - she's not just getting like that - she's been like that. Have you also noticed that from her perspective, everyone's jealous of her. JEALOUS of what - being crazy - I don't think so. Loved what I could see of the "white party" on the show - and girlfriend, you have one hot cutie, that Mauricio!! Keep keeping it real Kyle - you're always on point!!
I have to commend you for how you handled getting that "gift" from Camille. If someone I had invited to a great party in my home brought me such a gift, I doubt I'd be able to hold my tongue.
You made a comment at Camille's about not wanting to get into a swimsuit because you haven't gotten your body back to where you're comfortable in swimsuits after having your last child. Camille doesn't have those issues....just remember she never went through pregnancy. She lost out on that wonderous experience. I think you look great. So next time, take your swimsuit and smile to yourself, knowing that you're the one with the full life.
It's been nice to watch your friendship with Taylor. We've seen you twice now hold deeper conversations with her and be there in support of her. That's the kind of behavior I'd want from a friend. So kudos to you girl.
Kyle, you were so sweet to throw your handsome husband such a wonderful party and it was nice to see an episode without you and your sister getting into it. Also, congrats on maintaining your composure with Camille and taking her gift as a joke, both of you ladies showed great maturity! Bravo.
Kyle, That book is actually a great book.. and she meant it as joke...and maybe ur right a dig in there too.. But you do those same digs.... also i wish you had been the bigger person in this fight, and just let her believe what she heard. I think she knew kelsey was cheating on you, and you just happened to ask a question about kelsey, and she took it out on you. think about it, You have this great husband, and she to me, seem like she might have just been hearing rumors or had found out about him cheating. and thus u got the anger that should have gone to kelsey, Who has a history of cheating on his wife, and getting another girl pregnant while still married... Think of how angry and upset you would be if your husband did that... So put the fight behind you, its only making you both look ugly. Be thankful for your beautiful family and what you have.
Kyle, I was so touched by the fact that in the middle of your White party you took time out to get your little girl into her pjs. Here you were in the middle of this huge party but you took the time to do that even though a baby sitter could have been there to help you out. I thought that showed just what a kind of person you really are and also what a great mom!
Kyle, I just love watching you. You & Lisa remind me of me and my best friend. You two are partners in crime. I love to watch you and your husband. You can tell without a shadow of a doubt how much you two love eachother. It's nice to see. Sorry Camille you lose, she wishes she had that.Just saying. I like how you are always there for Taylor and willing to listen and give her good advice. You and your husband are grat role models for any married couples. You guys work, have a family and you still manage to keep the spark. As far as the book.... Someone should give her a book on manners and how to keep a husband. K- that was mean. You two are not friends yet to where you would find it funny. She has no sense of humor. She was baiting you and it didn't work. Can't wait for next week episode.
The bar for having a great body must be crazy high in Beverly Hills because I think you look amazing, Kyle! I love all the scenes with you and your husband- you two are so loving. I wish the same for Taylor. And Kim.
Camille has issues and a lot of them. I think in her world she tries but it comes off rude. I am not sure why she is trying to be friends with you all.
However, I think one of the problems between the two of you is that both of you want the spotlight. You present your life as perfect. No ones life is perfect but a work in progress.
I know many think you are just so great but something just seems off to me.
For being related to one of the wealthiest dynasties in the world, your family is one of the most down to earth, warmest, sincere and united I have ever seen. I agree with others who have said they do not trust Camille as far as her situation with you being settled nor her ability to steer clear of causing trouble between you and Mauricio, with her own dillusional events of what happened just to stir trouble.
We all have problems in life - that's what life is ... everyone is dealt a deck of cards that isn't always a winner but it's how you play your hand that makes you the winner. You and Mauricio have a Royal Flush and the full deck. A beautiful couple.
Who knows what the future will be and we haven't had the crystal ball to see what the rest of the season brought nor the reunion show but it sounds worth watching.
God bless your entire family.
YOUR HAIR!!! is just gorgeous , so shiny and silky looking please let me know what products you use!!!
Kyle- You have the most beautiful family! That party was perfect. This is one of the reasons I watch Real Housewives. The birthday party was like a fantasy of what every woman wants. Children to adore, a sensitive, HOT husband, a beautiful home with all the extras. Camille may say she's not jealous but I can admit...I'm definitely jealous! I have a wonderful child and a HOT husband but I don't have the house or money. Cheers!
I thought the book was meant as an ice breaker and was funny. Camille has been going through probably the worst time of her life....all on camera. I'm glad you are getting aong. Life is too short for this nonsense.
Kyle - you are not as innocent as you seem to be. Brnging up New York once again at Camille's - why was that necessary. Grow up!
Great party...great husband...great attitude. You should really be proud! You looked beautiful and you were so nice to Kim this week.
Kyle, you're family is beautiful. You are such a genuinely nice person both on the inside and out. I am so happy that you are apart of the housewives franchise. Just one question - May I come to the White Party this year? It looked like SO MUCH fun.
Kyle, I absolutely agree with your comment about giving relationship advice. It's a minefield. Mauricio's b-day party was gorgeous. You have a beautiful family and wonderful friends. I hope you and Camille can stay on track. It's always easier to just get along than to have friction. Kim looked so pretty too. I really love the RHOBH! Best franchise hands down!
Kyle, I really enjoy watching you each week...you are my all-time favorite "housewife". I agree with some of the other comments to "watch your back" in regards to Camille. I get the feeling she sort of enjoyed the drama that unfolded at her dinner party. She keeps talking about feelings of jealousy from the ladies (at her pool when you & Adrienne didn't bring swim suits), & I think she is probably the jealous one. She is sad. I know you are glad to have wrapped things up for season 1. Can't wait to see what happens next week! Best wishes to you and your family for the New Year!
ps...LOVED your fabulous pink sunglasses you wore to Camille's tennis & pool get together! Who made them?!? Would love to have a pair!
Kyle you are the sweetest person I have ever seen on reality tv. You are so down to earth and REAL. I absolutely adore you. You and your family are sooo cute together. I applaud you for putting up with Camille's crap and handling it like a lady. Your friendship with Lisa reminds me of my friendship with my best friend and it is a joy to watch you two together. Hope your family has a happy and blessed New Year.
Hi Kyle, Where do you like to shop for Portia? I loved the little dress she wore to the white party! She is adorable! I have a 17 month old daughter and I love trying new stores. Thanks!
I agree about Camille's gift. I think it served two purposes: as a joke, and as a jab, but you handled it very gracefully. I do hope she purchased a copy for herself as well, seeing as how, she tries to play the sweet and innocent housewife, yet makes underhanded comments and expects people to just sit back and appreciate the attack just because she said it in a syrupy-sweet voice. The fact that she believes anyone is jealous of her is ridiculous; you (and several other housewives) are prettier and just as happy (if not happier) in your lives.
And don't get me started on her medium/psychic friend who is the most awkward creature... How is Kelsey's divorce request coming as a surprise if she has a psychic friend? I am not psychic and I could see the disconnect between the couple in previous episodes.
All that said, I think it is wonderful that you and Camille can put this behind you and move forward. And I agree with all these other comments - you have fantastic hair! :o)
Not sure if you received my previous post...But I would like to start off saying that I have truly enjoyed watching everyone on the show. Although you have a lovely family and problems with Camille, I do believe if she wasn't on the show you would be the one who would be in the hot seat. I say this because you bend over backward to be cool with Camille, even though she is a bitter person, probably jealous of your family and even had the nerve to say your husband was a worker for them, when in fact he is a realtor who helps them located houses and gets the best deal. However, you are not so nice to your sister. You got mad at her for not standing up for you in NY, but that was nothing to the treatment Camille continues to show you. Why? Why extend or accept an olive branch from Camille and continue to humiliate your sister? I don't get it. Has Kim ever been as mean to you as Camille? I can't imagine, but it would make sense maybe. I don't know. But if you guys happen to get another season, I hope that you can show a softer side to your relationship with Kim. But after viewing the upcoming episode where you actually get up from the limo to "attack" Kim, I have my doubts.
When Taylor was telling you about her husband ........ you just had to make it about you ( my husband is busy too. blah blah blah). Just listen for once.
Kyle, I agree with some on this post that Camille meant well about the book, but also had a dig in there too. She has definitely made problems on the show and I can tell it - i.e. at the dinner party she was rubbing her hair after making a statement as if to say "well, I did good with that statement" - but she is defintiely stirring up problems for herself. Just keep yourself from being too affected by it - and maybe you all can move on. I do hate what Kelsey did to her, and the way he did it - but this was the way he was before meeting her. And he will continue to be this way. I would never be comfortable with him just for this reason. He's a jerk and I probably will never watch any of his shows again.
Your family is beautiful, but I hate hearing how you and your sister fight sometimes. But I do know it's just the way siblings are. But it still bothers me. I can sometime have it the same way, since I'm the youngest child too.
Hope you can invite us all to the white Party next year - it was fun. Thanks for being on the show. Good luck to you and your husband and family.
You are by far my fave H.W. on the show. I can't believe you would not put on a swimsuit at Camille's... You're body is fabulous! Show off what you have girl. Oh and the family pics you had taken at the White Party were amazing, you have a beautiful family!
Kayle, you need to stop enabling Tyler to bad mouth her husband on camera. You are making her feel like your marriage is better than hers. Sorry, I don't think so. It is just different in different ways. But you are lucky ans smart enough to appreciate what you have and Tyler is a complainer. Russel is a good guy. He is not after another girls, he is working for the sake of Tyler. He is not a type that will express display of affection and lets be honest many people don't do it and don't like it. I personally do not like to do it or to see other people do it. If you and your husband do show affection in public that doesn't mean that your marriage is better than mine becasue I stop my husband to do it in public. To me it is cheap and superficial. If you do like it that is OK, do it, but don't dare to ruin other people's marriage becasue you do not approve of their husband's behavior. I used to like you a lot but sorry , enabling Tyler to feel like shit about her life makes me wonder if you have a bad marriage yourself, so you are trying to make other people feel their marriage is bad. I wanted to tell Tyler my 2 cents also: Taylor, Russel will see the show one day. How do you feel bad mouthing him or victimizing yourself in every single episode? IF you could see ( I hope), you would know that Russel is a good guy. His eyes were really saddened when you were talking about your childhood abuse. And that is really a surprise coming from a personality type like Russel that are born to be successful business man. It is really hard to read these type personalities facial expression and that is why he is so successful in business that you can enjoy trowing around the money that he makes with hard work. But don't you really feel guilty to make people believe that he is an asshole? What do you want? You signed up for show to bring your life to viewers and complain about your husband all the time to get a good settlement when you decided to get divorced? Or did you come to show to hope that some one will see your broken emotions and will ask you to leave Russel and marry them? Some one else, richer, better, and more sympathetic and etc. If these are not the case, then please don't do this anymore and live with dignity. Get divorce with dignity and live with dignity. It is not right to pour your heart out for millions of people when Russel can not defend himself. I really feel bad for the guy. I hope that you can appreciate him more. Becasue he is working for you and your daughter not other people. He is obviously not a type that ever will look for another person. Never Ever. Becasue that is who he is. You need to get over your insecurities and enjoy the life you already have. My husband has been in business like that. Believe me if he lets it go he will be bankrupt and then you won't have that fabulous life anymore. I see my husband few nights a week (only 3-4 nights) the rest he is working and it is not convenient to drive home and go back for an hour. Yet I accept that this is what he needs to do. SO please stop crying all the time, and give this nice guy a break. If you hate him so much that you will make him look like shit for millions of Americans then maybe you are not the best person for him and not other way around.
I agree with Stephanie2525.
I also have been wondering about Mauricio's attitude about Camille now that he has seen the shows. I would hope that he is as disturbed as the rest of us. I hope that he realizes that at some point that he should not be so sweet to a women who targeted his wife and seriously treated her like dirt. I like Mauricio as much as the next person but I must say it bothers me that he kind of sucks up to Camille as much as he does esp. in front of everyone else. If I were Kyle that would really hurt/humiliate me greatly. I know that he does business with Kelsey and Camille but that does not give Camille the right to treat his wife the way that she has. He can still be considerate to her without being so overly super friendly to her.
I had been racking my brain on what to do for my husband's 40th birthday coming up soon. When I watched the episode last night a light bulb came on and I got so excited. I'm not having a white party, but a black and white party. I'm going to do the photo slideshow on our big screen tv and decorate everything in magical black and white. Thanks for the idea and a great episode.
Kyle, what nail polish are you wearing in the episode where you attend the charity event at Villa Blanca? Love the color!
I figured out why Camille treats you the way she does... She sees how your husband is crazy about you and you are always surrounded by your family and friends and she is jealous. The way Mauricio looks at you makes her want that with a husband that is, well now, not interested. Keep being yourself, it obviously makes her CRAZY!! Love you!
Kyle- Great family and great party and great friends! You live a charmed life for sure. I am happy to see you compliment your sister this week, she deserves that a lot more! As far as Camille and her "gift", you did the right thing- act like it doesn't mean anything. That's how she should have treated your supposed comment on her husband so long ago! The air goes right out of the dig if you blow it off. Kudos to you!! Such a handsome and smart husband- I would not want anyone else kissing him either- you got that right! Congratulations to Mauricio on his 40th and accomplishments and his wonderful family! It's so nice to see a loving couple! Don't know what the future holds but please keep in mind there are many of us here who can see through all the BS Camille is spouting, so stay strong and don't let anyone bait you anymore. Keep things in the perspective of importance in life- if someone is spending their time trying to bring you down, then they have become unimportant in the great scheme of things and no amount of serious discussions will solve the problems. Someone like Camille wants the problem to continue so she can have something to accuse you of. Take a lesson from your hubby- let it roll off your back. Any retort will be twisted to make you look like the crazy one, so just let it be. Know inside you are doing the smart thing by not keeping the argument going. I also see Adrienne as a good example of this- she knows to just get out of the environment rather than try to talk it out with an unrealistic person- (see the footage of her lunch with Camile). Good luck to you Kyle and your whole family. When this season is done, I will miss seeing you very much. Come back next season!!! Love- Kiki xxoo
Kyle- I LOVE the fact that you put family first. You and Mauricio have an awesome relationship- one that you work on...together.
I LMAO at the poll last night on Andys Watch It Live. 88% thought that CAMILLE needed the book on How to Behave. Thats was a blinding flash of the OBVIOUS!
You make the show fun and I love that you are not a BH Phony.
Best of luck 2011
