Kyle discusses Farrah's graduation, and why it matters so much.

on Jan 14, 20110

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.

Sisters will always have their ups and downs. This is understandable. Unfortunately when you are on a reality show ..reality comes out. Every family has issues and if they say they don't they are not telling the truth. I am also married to a Latin Hunk. Their demeanor may come off as flirty or love women and they mean no disrespect. They are just passionette men but for sure love their family and loyal to their women. Hope to see you and your family in the next episode.

I dont want to sound rude...but I have three sisters and would NEVER treat them the way you treat kim...you are so quick to point your finger at her..but yet treat your friends with more patience and understanding. It makes me cringe when I see you snap at her.. your family's feelings should be your first priority before your friends...you need to lighten up and appreciate that you actually have a sister that is healthy and in your life

you used to be my favorite but you became very mean towards kim. you mention frequently that you were also a child actress but i'd like to know in what you starred. you are very attractive but will your hair be to your knees next season? sometimes when people get older a bit of a haircut is due.

Sorry, Kyle, but you treated your sister very badly all season. Friends may come and go, but a sister is there for life.

Wow! I came on here after just now watching the finale feeling the need to express my feelings. Then I read this and couldnt have said it better myself!! I didnt ecspecially like Kim through the season, but I felt she got screwed over by everyone and mostly by her sister. Kyle, nothing you say in your blog will ever make you look good or believable. The only bad sister here is you

Kyle,

Since the beginning of the season i have been intrigued by your personality, yet you appear to be gratifying you really disappointed me. I had convinced myself that you were that nice beautiful lady with a beautiful family; perfect kids, perfect husband. I was wrong, and ashamed of myself, i was faked by you just like you are by Taylor; I really wish you have the opportunity to watch the whole season, then you will realized who started the commotion in NY. Taylor was the one who stirred this whole situation and it was a topic of discussion throughout the season. I really hope you realized how much damage you've done to your sister, and i feel so sad for Kim who had to go through this in National TV, that its by far the biggest embarrassment a human can ever go through.

Kim has always been there for you, if you look back at Farrah's Graduation she hold your hand and told you "I'm here for you to support you, by your side" Where was your other sister oh i know in Cannes! She stood by your side in ones of your lives biggest accomplishments as a parent; your daughter graduation. I hope you can recall and appreciated what she's done for you, she supported you as a child, bought your first car, house. Throughout the season your played as a victim telling the whole world what you've been through with your sister how you've always been there for her, done this for her, help her. If you really appreciated her and care for her as a person (sister) you wouldn't be bring it up, that is something for you to keep and know what you've done and that will make you a good human. On the other hand we never learned what Kim had done for you and your family as a child, it is not until the end of the 1st season that we find out that she supported your family and play the role of head of the house. Yet you would of always bring it up.

I hope you take time to realized the damaged you've done and heal. And like Addrinne suggested seeking professional therapy might help.

Dear Kyle, I believe your mom may have asked you to take care of your sister partly because yes she worried about her, but also you all owe her at te very least some respect and kindness. She too care of you guys financially growing up. Your explosive way of speaking is demeaning even though you don't mean to do that. From the episodes your spouse and children seem laid back and in control. You need to learn from them. Family is important. No matter what your kids do, you love them unconditionally. I'm sure that's what you feel for your kid's. Well let me tell you its what your mom felt for Kim. Sisters are forever no matter what. They remind us of our parents, of our innocence and they need you always. I know my sis does. She's older by 5 years but I'm the one that takes care of things. Its what I do best and I wouldn't have it any other way. I am looked upon as the oldest child. Shes the single parent and I'm the married one. Were all programed to take what we can handle. Fortunately I can handle it. Kyle you can lose yourself if you don't control your actions. Words hurt and you just might have ruined your sisters chances at anything professional because you divulged her weakness. My heart goes out to both of you.

Kyle,

In the beginning I thought you were one of the nicest housewives, but I have absolutely changed my mind. One of the previous posts said that you stirred the pot with Camille always having to make a smart comment and she is exactly right. Even when you went to her house to play tennis you brought up New York in a not so nice way. You say on the show to your husband that you have never had conflict like this before, but you constantly seem to be fighting with someone. Your sister Kim is exactly right she did not do anything wrong. She was attacked by Taylor and then yourself. Kim has never done anything wrong, but you can tell that she is not good with conflict because she is never able to get her point across. All she needed to say tonight is that she did not stir the pot; Taylor did by telling Camille that everyone was talking about her at the airport. That is so ridiculous and you can tell that Taylor lives for drama. TAYLOR is not your friend. Also, I obviously do not know your issues with your sister, but how mean of you to reveal her problems with alcohol to the world. That was nasty. All of you need to be thankful for what you have and stop being so nasty with each other. I have a child with a chronic illness, so you need to thank your lucky stars for your health and for the health of your children.

This episode made me very emotional, I couldn't help but take Kim's side. It seemed like Taylor only invited Kim to make sure that you( Kyle) and Lisa would see that it wasn't her fault for the whole New York blow up, but that it was Kim to blame. Kyle, I am the oldest of three girls, I also know how you feel, and maybe to give you some advice ( which you may not listen to) just sit back and let Kim come to you for help instead of you instantly helping without her even acting. P.S. Hope everything works out with your family. Loved the show want more! :D♥

Kyle I do not usually blog although I watch every season of HW. I am surprised at how many people feel you were in the wrong in how you treat your sister. First of all Kim seems to get to say anything she wants to you and you just have to take it. I felt Taylor stirred up that commotion at the party and Kim over dramatized it in front of everyone. She wanted to play the victim, when no one but Taylor attacked her. She wanted you to come to the rescue but everyone seems to forget she did not come to your rescue. Now she gets to see how it feels. As for stirring up family secrets, it was sad to see, but Kim provoked it by making accusations against you and your husband in front of a stranger and your friend and a million viewers. She could dish it but she could not take it coming back at her. I know your reaction was reactive, but Kim is so not the innocent victim everyone is making her out to be. You have been carrying a big weight on your shoulders and you need you friends to get through it. Don't let anyone make you feel you are wrong for not wanting to carry it anymore as it seems to have crimpled Kim. I hope the two or you heal, but do not feel you were wrong, weight like that sometimes has to be dropped, unfortunately it was on TV.

Taylor was the trouble maker and you blow everything out of context going after Kim. You were my favorite until tonight. Yes Kim appears to have personal issues but you let taylor's game make you act mean tirades your sister. You were not even addressing the issue at hand. You need to make it right with your sister. I am disappointed in you. Taylor really needs to check herself and deal with her issue with Russell. She did say that in the airport and she started the drama in new york. Kim was telling the truth.

kyle, you need to look at your actions at the party tonight. what you did to your sister was unforgivable. a real sister would have not done what you did. watch the episode again.

it starts with your coming over and saying, "what? what did you just say?" kim was going down fast (taylor can talk circles around kim). you could have thrown her a lifeline, instead you threw her the anchor. you attacked kim.

when kim said, "you'd better watch yourself," i knew exactly what she was talking about. you were not a good sister to her at all.

you should be ashamed of yourself.

OMG!!!!!!! I hope you have watched all the shows. Lisa was right Taylor was the one who started the problem in NY. Kim is alot like me when I get upset I get tongue-tied. You have been so mean to her and I'm sure your mother would not have liked you treating your sister this way .BLOOD IS THICKER THEN WATER!!!! Instead of going to a psyhic you need to seek GOD!I really liked you in the beginning now not so much,what Camille did to you ,you've done to Kim. You constantly talk about how much you do for her,not nice.From what we've all seen on the show if I were her I'd say no thanks.I'm Itailan and you do for family and keep it in the family. Never let your right hand know what your left hand is doing,in other words you keep it to yourself.You're like a female Fredo(from the Godfather)never pick friends over family!!!!!And again tonight Taylor started with Kim,but thats ok? She's a snake and is very mean to your sister.Kim was at Farrah's party and looked like a very proud aunt,your other sister was not there, but,thats ok because she's rich??? You never know whats around the corner,2 years ago I lost a daughter,my brother and sister held me up through the whole ordeal,we are all still suffering.We've had our diffrences over the years but we know what really matters.I believe Kim would there for you no matter what and I also think you both love each other.Remember in the end family and love is what really matters.

Kyle,

You used to be my favorite on this show. But after the way you treated your Kim tonight I am having second thoughts. I actually cried during the last 15 minutes of the show tonight. The way you attacking Kim was shameful. Kyle you blamed Kim for not defending you with Camille. Why didn't you defend Kim against Taylor. You did the same darn thing. Your mother is so ashamed of your behavior tonight. She may not be her in person but she is in spirit and is always watching over you and your sister. So if you cannot treat your sister then talk and see her occasionally. She will slowly start hating you and not wanting to be around you.

And for Taylor do not believe a darn thing she says. She is an instigator. She lied about everything regarding her conversation with Kim at the airport. You should really watch these episodes if you haven't. You will see if first hand.

Tonight reminded me of how my older sisters had treated me before I finally got sick of it and stood up to them. My 2nd oldest sister practically raised us after my father died. And I know he is looking down on us as well. And I know he is ashamed of the way we have behaved as well. I do talk to my sisters but stay away from my family as much as I can. I really only see them 4 or 5 times a year. I am youngest. I stay away from them for my own health. You may have two sisters. But only one of them seems to really give a darn about and your family. And is always there for you.

I am praying for your families. And that you and Kim will start treating each other with more love and kindness.

I second that- And I don't talk to my sister much-because she always throws out little negative comments- Funny thing is the one who seems weak is really strong. Since she has lived through her sister's treatment.

You said it so well. Many families have Alcholics, and Divorces but that repect personal family business and problems. Kyle stated in her Blog that she's been holding her pain in; well it's out now, what a shame that she's stated to Lisa that Kim appeared to be drunk, now tell me why MS. I ""all that"" didn't respect Kim and pull her aside an speak with her about what she saw....NO, she needed to put Kim down once again. Not to say how many times, we've seen them together drinking, yet never alluded to Kim not to drink. Kyle was my favorite in the beginning, but it only took me 2 episodes to see the really Kyle...she's a fake....Her attitude at the graduation should have been an eye opener for those that don't see the real Kyle. She's all into Taylor's marriage, instead of reaching out to her sister. I bet Kim did provided for the family financially.

I was a fan of yours until the show tonight where you attacked your sister and said such hateful words to her. You kicked her when she was down. Kim in her own way was sticking up for you by calling Taylor out. The blow up in NY would not have happened if Taylor had not stirred the pot with Camille before you all went down for dinner. I understand you and your sister have a past, and Kim may have some issues - but she in no way deserved the treatment you gave her at Taylor's party. Taylor attacked Kim not the other way around. You should listen to good friends like Lisa and your own sister Kim and take their sides instead of feeding into the drama that your not so real friend Taylor caused.

I was really disappointmented in Kyle tonight. She seems to hold some resentment towards her sister. She seems to think everything is about her and fails to consider her sisters feelings! Wow not to even know that Taylor started up the stale...never-ending fight again and it was all blamed on Kim....again! I think I would watch a few episodes Kyle and realize what an immature and low hitting sister you are. It started when Kim showed up having fun laughing and on camera you whispered about her drinking. It seems she was tagged from the beginning making fun of her for being a little late! You treat her ad if she is your child. Adrian (spelling) seems to be someone you need to listen to. She always keeps a great attitude and stays out of the petty high school drama!

Kyle you are my favorite of all the housewives. You are so down to earth and you say like it is. The episode where you were having your daughter's birthday party and Taylor having her daughter's, your party was for children and Taylor's was for show! Everyone looks like they have had so much botox and pumped up lips except for you and your sister. You have a beautiful family. Don't let the other wives come in between you and your sister. As for Camille she is soooo jealous of you not the other way around! God Bless and can't wait to see you next season. You are so beautiful.

I am surprised to see so many Kyle fans on here. Yes, she is beautiful, but there is a lot of growing up that needs to be done. It is quite obvious to me, Kyle has a lot of insecurities and jealousy. When Camille tries to take the "high road" and invites you over, gives you compliments, includes you in her life, you seem to always have something mean to say to stir things up. I suggest you grow up and try getting along with people better including your own sister. THINK before you SPEAK next time. Childish.

Finally! a person who's real on these wh shows...love your personality...you have a beautiful family, and try not to hang out too much with Taylor, she seems just as phony Camille

WOW!! i didn't catch that!! I don't buy into Taylor, her and Camille should hang out more, they are both of same character (phony, and whiny)

Kyle, I find you to be one of the most beautiful of the housewives, as far your being more of a natural beauty, as well as your sister Kim. It is very disturbing to see how unfair you treat Kim. I relate to this, with my own sister, who I love so dearly and would want protect until the end, but it isn't recipicated by her. It really breaks my heart, thinking I'm the butt of her jokes, with others, including her children and husband. I see that you do this with your friends, against your own blood, what a shame. I just don't want you to have regrets, like I would wish my sister not have regrets. Life is so short and so precious!!!

Kyle, you're still one of my favorites on the show. I love how you show emotion. You come across as a more well-rounded person to me because of that. I do have to agree with many other posters here regarding Taylor and your treatment of Kim. Lisa and Kim are completely right about Taylor. She has stirred up trouble more than once. Don't trust her.

It is very hard to watch how you interact with Kim. My sister and I have a close relationship, but yeah, we've had our share of fights. However, neither of us would EVER dream of embarrassing the other in front of friends and certainly not in front of tons of viewers.

I hope that you can look back at this whole season and see how Taylor hasn't really had your back and how you've repeatedly dismissed Kim.

Kyle, I wish you and your family much love during this time of Farrah's graduation. How proud you and Mauricio must be to see your baby walk the first of many proud steps to her future. Out of all of the ladys you are one of the women I hold in respect simply by how you carry yourself. I was impressed with how you handled the issue with Camille, and that was my explanation for what it looks like to put class into a very dirty situation that many of the other housewives, thank you Mrs. 'I hate tables' Jersey, would have used to show "who they really are."

Kyle - What bad manners to invite Taylor to horn in on your time with Lisa. I would be so annoyed but as usual Lisa handled it very gracefully. I think Taylor stirred it up in NYC also. Why don't you see that and what the heck is with the hand holding and Taylor looking at you and laughing everytime Lisa tried to be serious. You looked like a couple of teenagers. Taylor needs to stop putting on such a show and be honest. You both need to apologize to Lisa for your bad manners. Also, clean up that pottie mouth please.

I agree. Kyle treats her sister so badly and Kyle bullies her. I really wish Kyle would accept Kim for who she is and embrase the differences. Kim has tried to support Kyle in her family events. Out of the two, I would prefer to be with Kim and not the bully Kyle.

Kyle, I know you are prob tired of reading everyones "misperceptions" of you. But there is not way to misunderstand the way you are constantly talking to your sister Kim. I do not care how they edit it. The point is you say it....really...maybe she does have a drinking problem...we do not know the intricate relationship...however..she is YOUR SISTER, and I have a feeling even if Kim were in Kathy's same spot..would not have missed your daughter's graduation for anything. The Hilton's should have gotten over themselves for the day..and that is the sister I would have the issues with. Kim..whatever her issues..loves you and her kids and family. You seem to always dismiss her. It is extremely heartbreaking to watch.

I couldn't agree more. I have two older sisters, and have had strained relationships my whole life with them. However, if either of my sisters said or treated me the way you to Kim.....I would be done. You aren't as nice as you think:)

One more thing I forgot to mention. You need to take some responsibility for Taylor crashing your dinner with Lisa. You should have told Taylor no when she called to join you. Lisa was so happy to have some catch up time with you and then you and Taylor ruined it.

Kyle,

I was watching the episode with the White Party again today. It was at the very heginning where you are greeting all of your guests. I noticed that Taylor kissed Maurisio twice, the second time on the lips. I had recorded it so I was able to watch the scene over and over to determine who initiated it. And it was Taylor. She lingered for a moment after the firest kiss on the cheek for the kiss on the lips. I remember that you didn't like Camille kissing other women's husbands on the lips and that she better not kiss your husband on the lips or she wouldn't have any lips. Go back and watch the scene again. And I'll bet you didn't kiss her husband.

I don't think you can trust Taylor at all. Remember, she's the one that was with Camille in New York right after you and Camille had settled your differences and right before Camille came to the dinner table angry with you again. I believe that she also caused trouble between you and Kim at the "Dinner from Hell". She told Kim that she was f------ out of her mind before Kim ever said anything about her lips. Not to mention crashing your dinner with Lisa. She was also very rude to Lisa and acted like she wanted to make her jealous of your friendship with her. Don't let her ruin your friendship with Lisa.

The reason she couldn't get along with her husband at the White Party is because she kept walking away from him and just leaving him standing there. Then she says that he doesn't want to spend any time with her. That woman turns everything around.

Listen to Lisa. She's got Taylor's number.

Wow! just saw the preview of the reunion show. So...are they implying Kim has a drinking problem?? Sorry St. Kyle, you should have never brought your alcoholic sister on a tv show then. You should have "taken care" of her in the privacy of her own home. (I know of what I speak, I have 2 alcoholic brothers) and I know what can happen) but would never embarass them in front of other people. Geeze!!!
