I have been dreaming of the day Farrah would graduate from college since the day she was born. When I was pregnant, all of my friends were just starting their first year of college. I watched as they all left their parents home's to go to their dorms. But, I had a very different life--married and expecting my first baby at 19. I was so excited when I was pregnant. I couldn't wait to be a mom. Growing up as a child actress, I was tutored on movie and TV sets. I had always wanted to go to college, but found my life taking a different path.
Farrah's education was always so important to me. I had been talking to her about college since she was about five years old. Farrah was always intelligent and an overachiever. Her degree is in psychology with a minor in business. How I wish my mother and father were there with us to witness this special day! I'm sure they were watching from above.
My sister Kathy and her husband Rick, along with all four of their kids, ended up having to be in Europe for business. I was disappointed they weren't there with me to celebrate one of the most important days of Farrah's and my life. I was filled with an enormous sense of pride and happiness that day. I will never forget the feeling I had watching my child graduate from USC.
Of course she went to USC, where else would she go in southern California. I won the bet with my sisters!!!! You're great Kyle. Kim is a mother hen, she can't help it. She loves you and she's all about family. I think she needs you emotionally more than you need her and she interprets that as a lack of love, on your part -- which of course it isn't. Maybe u 2 can go to sister counseling with Mauricio's mother. Hope you 2 made up.
Congratulations to Farrah on her graduation! What a wonderful day for you and your family. Can't wait for the reunion!!!!
Congratulations on Farrah's graduation and the wonderful person she has grown to become. That has to do with how you and her father maintainted a healthy relationship, putting your own differences aside and how you & Mauricio have nurtured such a healthy, loving home for your four children.
She has the world waiting for her and in this spot that the world is at, she is lucky to have the family that she does for support and guidance.
You have a beautiful family, inside and out, that has been blessed with so much richness in your souls that it shows up even on a tv camera.
Please don't make a joke about being a lesbian. The gay world has enough people attempting to make jokes at their expense !!!
Kyle, congratulations on your daughter's graduation from college. Your family is beautiful and you are very blessed. I too have four girls and everyone of them have gone to college. Three now have degrees and the fourth is working on hers now. Getting an education is so very important and it is always a proud moment when we watch one of our own accomplish so much. Enjoy each of your girls while you have them, they will one day leave home and have their own families and jobs. Wishing you all the best life has to offer.
Congrats on your daughter Farrah! I wish her much success in her future!!! and GO USC...go Trojans....My husband is an alumni from USC....
Thanks for being on the show! I can't wait for the reunion
What a wonderful testimony to you is the success of your daughter. I know how much it means and how fast it goes by. Just keep in mind what sister did show up and gave a beautiful speech. Congrats Farrah!!
Kyle, I thought it was rude of you to have Taylor tag along for lunch. It looks very weird when she is looking into your eyes
Congratulations to Farrah and to you. Thanks, Kyle for spreading such love and demonstrating some great family values that are too often missed on television. You, Mauricio and your children are all beautiful people inside and out. That baby girl is soooo beautiful. her eyes are exactly like Mauricio's mom's. Farrah, just go make a positive difference in the world and sincere blessings!
I'm a HUGE KYLE FAN but must admit you were wrong and rude to have invited Taylor to eat with you and Lisa WITHOUT telling Lisa first. Then sitting and holding hands with Taylor really was NOT the way to bring a new girlfriend into an already intimately established friendship.. THAT, my dear, is how you alienate and exclude girlfriends.
Another milestone has passed. You should be so very proud of the parent you are. Your first born has passed the first hurdle in her adult life. Now, because of you and her Father's she will have a very successful and wonderful life. Believe me, they are jumping up and down for joy in Heaven because you're such a great Mother. The Lord blessed you with a beautiful daughter and through all your teaching, love and support she has become a wonderful human being and a great example. Don't be sad Kyle just think, you did a perfect job with Farrah and she was the 1st child (that's the one we usually make the most mistakes with) The one's that follow will be even more spectacular. Yes, Camille's situation is very sad. She revealed some personal things about Kelsey on Andy's Live Chat show that made me think she really needs a husband who is a husband in every way. She doesn't see it now, but she will be better off in the future with a man who is stable and all man. The children are the one's I worry about the most because they won't understand why Daddy is not coming home and has another wife. The kid's always think that the parent who left didn't love them enough. You pray for Camille and the kid's and I'll pray for them too. The Lord say's, if 2 or more agree, it will be done! If you have time in the near future try to arrange for Kim to talk to a Counselor or Doctor. She has a lot of hostility in her soul and it surfaces at the worst times. She needs to talk to a professional so she can learn why she has this baggage and how she can get rid of it or at least control it. I hope you had a really fun Birthday Party on the 11th. My Birthday is Jan. 12th. My family came from Michigan and we painted the town. Take care dear girl.
You are seriously one of the most stunning women I have ever seen. You are a great mom and wife. God has blessed you with a beautiful family and I'm sure you're very thankful. I enjoyed watching Farrah's graduation...you looked so proud! My mom had me at 19 as well...I'm 30 now and after my husband, my mom is my absolute best friend in the world! Seeing you and Farrah reminds me of me and my mom. :) I love watching Portia and I wish she'd get more screen time. She is such a doll baby.
The previews of the finale make me cringe. I really don't like seeing you and Kim fight. It makes me sad to see the way you talk to Kim sometimes. I'm sure there are a whole lot of family dynamics that we don't get to see but still...she is your sister. Some words cut like a sword and once said, you can't take them back. Kim was there before you met any of your other friends and she will be there if they all leave. If Taylor ever spoke to my sibling the way she spoke to Kim in NY, I would've gone Oklahoma on her!
Kim was there for you during Farrah's graduation, by your side, truly understanding how hurt you were that your other sister hadn't been there. What I would do to have a big sister like Kim. It's very evident that she loves you...just as it's evident that you love her. Perhaps you can cut her some slack though. You have a great love in Mauricio. Kim hasn't found that yet....but she will, on her own, in her time. In the meantime, all she really has is you.
Anyways, you are one of my favorite housewives and I enjoy watching you with your family. Also, you and Lisa seem to have a great friendship...I hope it continues. God bless you and your family!
I love how you and Camille have grown to have a respect for each other. It's nice that you have been able to work through it all. Sometimes it through conflict that we come to truly understand one another.
Hi Kyle! I graduated college recently also, but did it non-traditionally & had a December graduation ceremony at Texas A&M. I had many friends & family consantly ask when my graduation date was, and when the date rolled around, most of the family & friends that I had know for YEARS didn't even show up, using excuses like: "Oh, we were shopping and forgot!" It is a once in a lifetime event and I was hurt and disappointed, but like your trainer said, it doesn't matter who didn't show up, but instead who was there to celebrate with me. Not everyone can say that they had a 'perfect' child. You and your sisters Kim & Kathy have beautiful daughters (and sons). Your family is truly blessed.
Kyle, I love you on the show, you and Lisa come across as very real straight forward people. In the preview for next weeks episode there is a seemingly huge confrontation between you and Kim. I have noticed a theme in your relationship with Kim. You seem to constantly evaluate "Kim had my back, or Kim didn't have my back and she knows it" Will we get to see where some of that stems from?
I know that you take a lot of heat for your relationship with Kim. However, I can totally relate. My sister and I have a relationship with a similar tone and I can see that there is a lot going on between you two that the viewers are not privy to. I see that there is a lot of hurt between you and Kim by the way you interact with one another. There's no doubt that you love her and would go to great lengths to protect her but there are clearly unresolved issues there. I hope by watching yourselves on TV, you are able to repair the relationship. xoxo
Kyle, Congrats to Farrah on her graduation from college. Quite an achievement on her part. Such a happy day for the entire family. She is a wonderful example to her little sisters and all of her cousins, the girls and the boys. I am not buying that Kathy and Rick and family did not attend because they had business. Even if it was the case, why would the adult children who have lived on their own for years have to go along? If they wanted to attend they would have done so. I don't really blame them for not wanting to be on the show. They have enough cameras to deal with, why invite more? Also, it was Farrah's day, I would think they would not want to draw attention away from her. I do think it was very telling that Kathy called Kim to break the news that she was not showing up and that Kim was the one who was the bearer of that news to you. Why didn't Kathy call your herself? Could it be that Kim is the one she felt more comforable with? You seem to be a good friend, but a lousy sister. This entire season we have seen you treat Kim like a burdon. This episode Lisa pointed out the Taylor was the one who stirred Camille up. This is exactly what Kim has been saying. And each time Kim did, you yelled at her and told he she did not have your back. Lisa says it and you concede she has a point, but then you sit and hold hands with Taylor all buddy buddy. Why are kinder to Lisa and Taylor than you are to Kim?
Kyle - I was totally surprised to realize that RH of BH has the most down-to-earth cast of all of the series. With notable exceptions of course! Don't pay any heed to those who get on your case about your relationship with Kim. More than likely they don't have a sister of their own. Who hasn't said really horrible Sh*& to a sibling at one time or another?? You and Bethenny should team up for a show. I don't even care if it's called Kyle & Bethenny read the phone book, I'm sure it'll still be hysterical.
Kyle. It has been discussed several times by Andy, Lisa,Camille and you sister Kim, that Taylor is the one that back stabbed you all and told Camille that the group was talking behind her back that she was insecure. Now when you all start discussing the blow up in New York ,Taylor immediately picks a fight with Kim and starts in on her because she is an easy target. Lisa tried to tell you at the luncheon ,that Taylor crashed, that it was Taylor who was the person responsible for the argument continuing in NY. She knows how you and Kim argue so all she had to do was act like Kim was starting something and attacking her and she knew you would be embarrassed and jump all over Kim . I think you should reevaluate your friendship/relationship with Taylor and know you can not trust her. But most important you need to apologize to Kim.
Kyle, I have blogged and for some reason BRAVO does not post them. 1st and foremost Congrats on your daughter's great accomplishment.
On a personal note...have a hard time reading you - you are a great friend but not so great sister. It's all about her having "your" back and nothing in return. I have sisters and on our worst days would never dream of treating each other the way you treat Kim. You seem extremely resentful toward her, maybe family counseling would help.
Kyle, You might want to embrace Lisa's warning about Taylor. Taylor is running on "E" in her marriage and seems to yearn for what you have as her ideal way of life.... Lisa may be feeling put out in the friendship dept, but the hand-holding scene with the giddiness seemed sophomoric and uncomfortable to watch. Who knows what was relayed to Camille prior to the dinner from hell in NY...but Lisa seems very level headed and fair in her assessments of people. Taylor is vulnerable and may be playing both sides of the coin to feel loved and accepted. Hopefully, you and your sister will learn to be more tolerant of one another (although next wks episode appears awful between you and KIm). Still, YOU are Kim' flesh and blood. If anyone would speak so negatively of my sister, as Taylor does of yours, I definitely would NOT respect that behavior. Family is family.
Kyle, I also had my daughter at 19. She just turned 18 and will be graduating high school this year. She will be attending college next fall and I know the pride that you speak of. I too had to put off college to raise my daughter. But I think, God kinda re-pays moms like us. We end up with such accomplished wonderful children that go far beyond our hopes and dreams. I want to thank you for allowing my family to watch your family every week. You seem to be a good role model for your children and it is so nice to watch a family that actually puts eachother first. Good luck to you and your husband. There are many more memories to be made with your little ones. Enjoy! It goes by too fast!
Congratulations on your daughter's graduation. What a great accomplishment as a mother and for your daughter. I do think though you should not berate your sister Kim the way you do. Your children will see this show if they have not seen it in person already and it is not good for them or for your relationship as sisters.
Well, your week had me choked up as well. We have similar milestones in our lives and my children were my life. Your familial devotion and love is felt through the screen. When you thought you could speak w/o anything prepared & choked up, I was crying. You can just feel the emotion you have for your loved ones.
Portia is absolutely adorable! And I love that picture that's posted of you leaning into her in the car & the way she's looking @ you. How precious is that? That picture is a keeper.
Best to you & yours. Listen to Lisa. And please keep Kim close. Hugs
I really relating to this episode with you and your daughter. I married young and didn't go to college either...something I have always regretted...but I was so focused on being a mom. I raised my two sons as single mom..no child support and all that. I instilled the importance of education to my boys their entire lives and always told them they could/would go to college but they would have to always do better than other students to get financial assistance to do so. Both of them got full scholarships! When my oldest son graduated, I had been in a tragic accident and every day I prayed God would allow me to live long enough to see him graduate. I was there in wheelchair, hooked up to IVs, etc thanking God for that day. When my second son graduated, I was able to walk on my own, although I was still in a serious medical condition. I really understood this episode...thanks for sharing such a wonderful day with us
You mentioned how sad you were that the famous Hilton's weren't there to celebrate with you (Farrah really) but you neglected to mention how happy you were that at least Kim was there for you as always, was that an oversight? Must be.
Remember what your trainer said, be thankful for what you have and not for what you don't have. One sister was and is always there for you, another is not. It's not rocket science Kyle.
Kyle- I like you but it is really sad to see the way you treat your sister. You should remember the old line from The Godfather..."never take sides AGAINST family". Adrianne would never treat a brother like that, and she wouldn't take up a friendship with someone who pitted themselves against her brother. Think about it please. Seriously, that is not cool. And it was painful to see the way you treated Lisa at the lunch date. Don't allow new friends - questionable friends at that- come between you and a sister or you and a TRUE friend.
Kyle, It's great your daughter finally graduated from college. Hurray!! Hurray to you as well for keeping your cool with Camille. What a nut job she is. I like how she made words up that you never actually said. No wonder why Kelsy is leaving her. She's out there. Especially when she had that alison(phyco) broad there to supposedly haunt you. What a trip that was. I cant wait to see what happens next. Your husband sure smoothed things over with Camille too. I would watch out for those 2, You know how she is.
I'm glad for Farrah! She's beautiful and so sweet. I hope you finally thought Kim had your back... But I see from the finale previews that you will once again not have hers and choose your friends over her, treating her like an enemy. I agree that Camille could use counseling, but you can too! Anyone at your age should not be so disloyal to a sister, nor enjoy making anyone, Esp family, feel less than their worth. You constantly throw darts at Kim and she continues to stay friends with you. She is a true sister. Instead of pointing out the flaws you perceive Kim to have, you could look at your own and take notes from Kim on how to be a good person, let alone a good sister!!
Kyle, Lisa is trying to tell you something, and you blow it off. It was not cool to invite Taylor to your outing with Lisa without clearing it with her first. You and Taylor acted very immature at Villa Nova with Lisa, and she looked like the grownup at the table. You are displaying mean-girl, clique tendencies, and favoring your "new friend" over your sister and your long-term, trusted friend Lisa. And, please STOP bringing up New York to Camille. Let it rest. Be careful, the sympathy is swinging over to Camille. People sympathize with the underdog. You have so much going for you, and as such, you should behave more benevolently.
who cares about this week and the graduation, what the heck happens next week in the limo! Cat fight!
I just saw the video of you and Kim in the limo. Do you see how you speak to people? What is with you telling people they are crazy? It seems to me, that you don't know how to fight fair and say vicious things. Bringing up your dead Mother as you did....below the belt. You need to do some serious reflection on how you behave. I'm now going to question this whole ordeal with Camille.
Kyle shouldn't have left Kim to drive alone in the Limo and then ignore to ignore her was very humiliating.That was totally out of line.I do agree with remarks that mention you treat your friends better than your sister (which goes back to the fact that we treat those closest to us harsher than our friends and strangers.).GOOD LUCK SWEETIE
Kyle: Could you please share what gloss you wear on the show and what makeup colors? You always look beautiful.
I hope u read these comments because i think your relationship with your sister Kim is not something you should take for granted. No family members are perfect but if that family member truly loves you accept them as they are .... I have not spoken to my sister for over eleven years and that is because we both think we are too good for each other. The bottom line is you have four girls and I am sure you want them to love each other unconditional and be there for one another as they become adults. My point is Taylor your friend has said awful things about Kim and this was when Kim was trying to mend there relationship....The Super Hero comment was just uncalled for. Lisa also at times was poking fun at Kim with the blind date .....I hope none of these ladies ever really know what it is like to be single, divorced or widowed ; because they should be supporting women trying to find a soul mate. Life can change in an instance and its easy to take life for granted.
Totally agree with new2wi. I felt so bad for Kim whose presence you obviously did not appreciate as much as you would have appreciated Kathy Hilton's presence. I don't know whether you feel so small next to the Hilton's which would explain why you would stop everything for the call and to make sure everyone heard. It's just money. No need to disrespect your other guests especially your sister simply because they do not have the Hilton name.
Congrats to your daughter though and also it was good to see you get along so well with your ex for your daughter's sake. The comments by Mauricio about Farrah were very sweet and appeared very genuine. You have a good man there.
I love love love watching you and your family! You are such a lucky lady! You are beautiful, and your family is too, I hope you continue to have such a wonderful life!
Kyle, I hope watching these episodes has opened your eyes to your lack of compassion for Kim. I have sisters, and there is NO WAY I would let them belittle me to my face. Early on in the series, you had to tell all of us (at Kim's expense) how "I made a promise to Mom that I'd take care of Kim"--do you not have the least bit of empathy for Kim? How could you share that with the viewing public? I watched the clip for next week's episode on the Bravo website, and you have to do it AGAIN! Tell the world how Poor Kyle has to be burdened with the responsibility of Crazy Kim. Shame on you. You don't deserve Kim's devotion. You continually "throw her under the bus" which must be terribly embarrassing and hurtful for Kim. Does it make you feel like the better person? It's painful for all of us to watch. Stop, love Kim, and quit being a bully.
Hi Kyle! Just wanted to say you are fabulous, you're a great mother and wife. Don't listen to the haters out there, they're just jealous of your beauty, your success, your beautiful family, your achievements. You go girl!!!! You and Lisa are in my opinion the only "REAL" housewives of Beverly Hills, you are the only genuine, kind-hearted persons on this show. Take care Kyle, love you, and stay fabulous!!!!!
Kyle, I have really enjoyed watching the show. It has shown me that women are the same in every walk of life...drama always shows its ugly head! There have been many times that I have felt sorry for Kim because of the way you treat her. You have said many times that your mother left the burden of watching out for Kim on your shoulders and it is evident that you resent it. Kim seems to want your approval and you dont seem to want to give it to her. She is a very good mother, just as you are. A sister's love is never ending so I hope both of you can work through your issues!!
Kyle, I really like except for the way you treat Kim. I am like Kim in that I am not a social butterfly. I am lucky that my husband makes up for my lack of...Kim doesn't have that. She has a good heart and she is so supportive of you and your family. Taylor started this whole mess (Kim was the only one who realized it at the time) but you all took Taylor's side and ganged up against Kim. Now that you have seen the footage, I hope you apologize to Kim. I am glad Kim had the strength to stand up to Taylor's lies. You seem so nice except for when you deal with Kim...maybe you are a phony!
I LOVE the photo artwork of trees you have in your master bedroom. I always pause the tivo to stare at it. Can you share where you purchased this or the photographer, it's stunning!
Kyle, Love watching you with your family! A word of warning, though, you must look out for Taylor! I don't think she is purposely vindictive, but she makes waves wherever she goes and is very good at walking away unscathed. She was the catalyst for the Camille debacle, and she should not have present at a lunch that was only for you and Lisa. It is always great to incorporate new friends, but she shows signs of being extremely passive/aggressive. She stirs up trouble all around her and then ducks out unnoticed. It is something highly insecure and manipulative people do. They feel threatened by new members in a group and cause fights to feel secure about their position in the group. She obviously isn't trying to actually hurt anyone, she's just thinking of herself and in the process forgets the consequences her actions and words have on those around her. Listen to Lisa and Kim a little more. You can still enjoy a friendship with Taylor, just try to see her for who she really is and not just what you want to see. Best wishes for you and your family!
Please don't fret too much about not going to college. I am sure that there are many (my daughters included) who would have loved to have had your career opportunities. Furthermore, since you are beautiful, have support of family and friends, financially secure, etc, there are many women who would swap places with you in an instant.
Blessings to you and your family.
Reply to Miss Faboo, Right on! I couldn't agree with you more. You explained it well. I hope Kyle heeds your warning about Taylor. Things are stirred up whereever she goes. And the Housewives are not noticing why. Taylor had no business crashing Kyle and Lisa's lunch. And that is exactly what she did. And then she had the nerve to accuse Lisa of being jealous. Lisa handled it with grace. I really don't think you can have a relationship with someone you don't trust.
