Hmmm, where to begin...I guess I will first address a few comments from last weeks blog regarding my husbands ethnicity. The reason I explained that "my husband is Mexican but has no Mexican blood" is because people were asking/commenting on his and my childrens' PHYSICAL appearance. He is born and raised In Mexico which obviously makes him Mexican, something we are both proud of.However, since people were asking about his heritage, I explained his roots. My children are a mix of Irish, Welsh (from my side) Russian, Greek, and Turkish (Mauricio's side). My children and I were all born in Los Angeles.
Now, on to New York! I was really looking forward to the New York trip. As you have seen, Im not a good flyer. I have missed out on many exciting trips due to my fear of flying. When Lisa suggested the Hypnotherapist, I immediately agreed. I don't want to continue to miss out on the fun! I really do feel that it worked. Even though I think Lisa and I looked crazy doing that! I thought that I would feel like I was in a trance. It felt strange and surreal; but I felt totally in control. Ironically on the plane to NY, the flight attendant came on the loud speaker saying "ladies and gentlemen, we are experiencing technical difficulties….." and before she could finish her sentence, Lisa almost went in to full cardiac arrest. The attendant continued.. "experiencing technical difficulties with our food ordering system" I remained calm as could be while having to tell Lisa not to panic. Haha!
I was surprised to hear from Lisa that Camille was upset. After the Vegas incident, I spoke with Camille on the plane back from Vegas. I told her I was hurt that she snapped at me for simply asking about her spring break plans. All of us were sitting together in the lobby of our hotel discussing where we were going. Camille apologized and said that she is a very private person and felt interrogated by my asking. NEVER was there any mention of the comment she CLAIMS I made. If I had said that, why didn't she mention it then? We were all there for this conversation on the plane.
Once we were in New York, I just wanted to put all of this behind us and have fun. I thought by talking to Camille we could clear the air. At that point I was unaware of what she had claimed I said. I knew she had said something but not exactly what. I thought we had patched things up when we left the suite. Imagine my surprise when she came down upset again. When she said that I said, "who would be interested in you without Kelsey?" I was SHOCKED. I would NEVER say something as offensive as that. I don't KNOW ANYONE who would! I was getting very defensive because I felt my character was being attacked. I am an honest person, and now, not only, was she saying I said something that would never come out of my mouth, but also calling me a liar. I couldn't believe Camille could sit there like that and make such outlandish claims. I was obviously very upset. I always wear my heart on my sleeve. What you see is what you get with me.
After analyzing this over time, I feel that Camille, for whatever reason, believes people think that so SHE HEARD that. Those were definitely not my words or thoughts. I want you all to know that I do not believe Camille made this up to start problems or to be mean. I know Camille is not a bad person. However, we clearly do not see eye to eye. It really is an unfortunate situation. How I WISH the cameras were there that morning in Vegas!
Some answers to your questions:
1) The designer of the top I wore to my nieces spa party was Yumi Kim
2) The designer of the top I wore to Portia's party was Yoana Baraschi
3) The sequin dress I wore in the opening titles is designed by Camilla. I bought it at Vionnet boutique in Beverly Hills

So I can answer your questions
Until next week!......xo, Kyle
Kyle, you hang in there girl! CAmille is nutso. The cameras were up and you did not say what CAmille said you said. I am sure you are exhausted over this but I think that Camille is creating drama. YOu have it together STAND YOUR GROUND GIRL! Camille even contradicts what she says (Like Kelly from New York). Camille is your Kelly!
Kyle, I think you are a hilarious, strong, independent woman and that maybe at this point in time Camille knew things in her life were going a little down hill and she may have been catty towards you as an act of jealousy. I don't know how the situation turns out but I'm rooting for team Kyle! :) Best wishes with the rest of the show
Kyle, I do believe that Camille is paranoid about having Kelsey as her then-husband. When you said "is Kelsey coming" I'm sure her paranoia got the best of her.
I LOVE YOU! I love your family...your husband EVERYBODY. Your absolutely BEAUTIFUL...striking...traffic stopping. I LOVED how you let that nut job have it in NYC. She deserved it. I wouldn't waste my time or energy on HER. She's TRYING TO make you seem like the bad guy. She even took what you said about being insecure WRONG and was ready to run with it and TRY TO make something out of that TOO. I hope she doesn't ruin your zin. I am glad you had a better time on the plane. I wish you all the best and MUCH SUCCESS! GOD Bless.
Hi Kyle, I like you! I think you are a good person and have a good heart. I did NOT like what I saw w/ Camille on tonight's episode-- Where she said, "I know I was pushing Kyle's buttons... I win!"... Are you kidding me? What is she is grade school now? She looked so pleased with herself... I can't stand people like that, I avoid them like the plague! I don't blame you for being defensive-- I would be too! I do not like when people try to put words in my mouth... NOT COOL.
Kyle, your reaction to being verbally attacked by Camille when you thought the misunderstanding had been put to rest was rude and mean-spirited on Camille's part. Her comments to the camera after the fact about how she was the winner and the way she looked like she was egging you on in a calculated manner was petty. I thought you were completely within your rights to be hurt, caught off guard, upset, and to fire back with the liar retort. Good for you for standing up for yourself. :)
Love you, Kyle. You remind me of my daughter. You stand up for yourself. I think Camille needs help, too!!! Very insecure.
K, You seem like you get everything you want and are a last word freak. Being a mother 0f 5 kids you would think you could have let the conversation go with Camille. Life is too short for BS. You don't talk right to people.
You are an inspirational woman and a wonderful mother. I've gotta ask, what brand are your sunglasses??? I love them, they are HOT and you wear them so well.
As far as you and Camille, I despite about what she's been sharing with everyone about that comment that she "thinks" she heard...I felt you were the bigger person by clearing the air. The fact that all of a sudden from the suite down to the restaurant, her brain just started going nuts and of course the insecure Camille comes out and feels like she's being attacked AGAIN.
One more thing, as you fly more, the easier it will get for you to overcome your fear of it. I've gone as far as Asia and I slept through most of it.
P.S. Enjoyed your daughter's b-day, make it all about the kids. It's what's important.
LOLLL OMG!!! Kyle, I almost choked when you told Camille to seek help ASAP...Too funny! I was thinking that very thought just as those words flew out of your mouth! You handled yourself well. Everything about you is on point and all eyes are on you so don't entertain Camille and her foolishnes... she knows to argue with you equals more screen time for her. LOL
Kyle, You are really such a sweet person. I really was feeling for you when Camille was coming at you. On every blog she is trying to take back what she said or reports "cringing" because of her behavior that we all witnessed. And of course its all because of all the tough family stuff she was going through. Please. Anyway, you handled yourself so well and your apology was very sincere when in fact it wasn't even necessary.
Total Team Kyle. There is absolutely nothing believable about Camille, and I don't get her explanation about the mystical "sentence" that has so infuriated her. Go to the video tape...and I agree with you, why didn't she say something at that particular moment. As in tonight's episode she digs and digs digs digs, And she stews over and over and then goes in for a fight. Or as Camille would say a "tiff". She likes a tiff. Screw Camille!.....
Kyle, while most people can appreciate your forwardness and your desire to clear the air with Camille before the weekend started, your apology and intentions became diluted when you told Camille to "not be insecure". In no way, did Camille ever cop to being insecure and if you thought she was and she wasn't admitting to it, then telling her she was then and there and in the manner that you did was not the best choice and in poor taste. You cannot treat and speak to everyone the same especially if they are not your close friend. Furthermore, you accused Camille of attacking your character therefore losing your temper, but, you are the one that felt like you had to insult her more at the table by telling her she needs to see a psychiatrist and hurling profanities at her, thusly attacking her character and state of mind. In short, be cautious in how you treat people, be quick to listen and slow to speak. The tongue is a mighty weapon and holds the power of life and death.
Kyle, I love you to death and I am for sure a fan of you, a long with many other people out there. With that being said I really want to give my opinion on the fight.
First I want to say that I believe you that you did not say those things to Camille. But you already established that she is an insecure person before that talk you had with her in the hotel room, so why did you have to put that in her face? I know you had your feelings hurt by Camille when she said you were "interrogating" her, we all know that Camille was just being a cry baby over nothing.. but you didn't have to put it in her face that she's an emotional cry baby that is insecure and a week person and all. No wonder she wanted to "stick up for herself" at the dinner table. Overall I am on your side but I think you could've been the bigger person and handled it differently. I'm sure you're thinking the same thing in hindsight.
I have to say I think your were somewhat confrontational with Camille. Don't misunderstand, I am not a fan of Camille's but I think you were a little harsh. You should know by now there is no reasoning with this, I am all that, women. Just wondering if you 2 were friends prior to this show?
Hi Kyle, You are my absolute favorite. Hands down! I love your sister, Kim too. Anyhoo, just wanted to say that (at least from my perch as a viewer) it looked as though you were trying to compliment Camille by telling hershe didnt have to be insecure--- from what I saw she said to you "I am PAINFULLY shy" and that when she was around the other women she felt like an "outsider." You generously told her everyone liked her and she had no reason to feel insecure. You were trying to boost her confidence after she expressed feelings of being an outsider and "painfully shy." I 100% believe that she is able to twist what was clearly meant to be a compliment, then she absolutely is capable of twisting what you had asked her about the Hawaii vacation. She is a "twister." Sorry you were made to feel so uncomfortable for you. You look like a loving and kind mother. She doesn't. Your husband adores you. Hers doesn't. The viewers love you!!! .....
Kyle definitely switched a flip on all of us tonight! While apologizing to Camille was the mature thing to do, she did make sure she inserted a little dig in the apology by calling Camille "insecure" and it was understandable that Camille took issue with that. No side taking here because we do not know for sure who said what but Kyle honey, your attitude at the dinner table was the furthest thing from classy, it was a serious NEW JERSEY moment which makes me as a viewer think that maybe there was a truth to Camille's take on things. From the way you treat your sister, to this tiff with Camille, your character is really bordering on shady.
It was obvious to me the truth of that bizarre Camille episode. There were so many cringeworthy moments were Camille in that episode...stress brings out difficult parts of people but even with her (cancer diagnosed) mother, she managed to shift the conversation to all about HERSELF. I think either she's entirely self absorbed projecting all over the place or the stress of her circumstances brought that out. either way it was obvious you did NOT make that ludicrous comment and her saying she "won"? how many times did she drive Kelsey mad with that game? Just sayin.
Keep on keepin on Kyle!
I think Kyle feels like she is the top dog and feels threatened by camille. The cursing done by Kyle calling camille a f-ing liar in public was extremely unattractive. Your character was shown at the airport with all the trash talk about how insecure she is and also how by saying she needs professional help? I think kyle needs to work on control and composure.
Kyle, watching Camille be so sarcastic was very frustrating. I'm surprised you didn't stick a fist to that annoying look. She may have short term memory! You rock!
Kyle, I just love you, Lisa and Adrienne. I think you three are REAL. I love the kind of mothers you and Lisa are to your children. Your loyal viewers know you would never have even thought, let alone said, what Camille said you said. It is so obvious that she is insecure and very full of herself. She isn't even a "housewife". So confused why she is on the show. All she does is brag about how much "help" she has, how many houses she has, how she loves 'doing for others' (haven't seen her do anything other than for herself so far). Anyway, my and my daughters just adore you and Lisa. Can tell you are genuine, good-hearted, wonderful women and you are a joy to watch every week. Hope you continue to stand your ground where Camille is concerned. It's obvious she is very manipulative and also she is jealous of you, so there is probably more to come from her, directed toward you. (I don't think she would hesitate to jump any of your husbands!! Though the only husband that seems to be snowed by her is Adrienne's. Can't figure that one out - he was so obvious in Vegas. Camille couldn't hold a candle to Adrienne.) Anyway, love to watch you and the other gals. Wish they would replace Camille. She kind of ruins the fun group. We're all with you doll. Stay strong and God Bless!
My daughter loves the scarf you wore on tonights show and would like to know more about it. She loves all your tops also!!!
I am on your side on this one. Camille seems to have the talent of blowing things out of proportion while making herself look like the victim in her calm little center of her own universe. She is a woman of so many contradictions ('I dont drink..pass the chardonnay','I am my own woman...My husband this,My husband that','I'm deathly shy...Why would you call me insecure?'), and yet she gets upset if you can't keep up with them, or worse catch her in them. Of course she misunderstood you I haven't really seen her truely listen to anyone. You give her too much credit, you may not think she is a bad person but a person that self involved cant be a good one. BTW You're my favorite .
Kyle, on Andy's show the running poll was who side are you on and you had a whooping 88% of people that said they were on your side regarding the argument between you and Camille. I also think your a straight shooter. The scary thing is Camille reminds me of Kelly from the NY housewifes, and thats certainly not giving her a compliment.
As a certified behavioral expert and understanding the future of Chelsea's marriage, you hit a hot button regarding her insecurities - her marriage, her self worth beyond a nice body, etc. While your comment was innocent with no ill intent (as we all saw in tonight's episode), there are deeper self esteem issues that only Camille can address. What is ironic is that Camille has bragged about everything she "has" - homes, wealth, etc. but she disects a conversation with you where you are trying to be the bigger person and make amends only to try to spin the conversation against you in front of everyone because she actually is so insecure. Hang in there...looks like you have a bumpy ride ahead of you with a crazy train!
Kyle, I think you are just stunning, bright, fun and most important so real! I think you are quite fair in your blog in being nice in describing Camille not trying to be mean... I would be quite defensive as well if someone was questioning my character or insisting that I said something that I did not say. I would be upset just as you were. It is obvious that Camille has major issues and yes, you aren't a therapist but I AM. Camille appears to be quite aloof, passive agressive, histrionic, and doubts individuals, especially women that are around her...& true usually is due to major internal levels of insecurities.
Stay true to yourself. There are people that are just aren't worth your time and energy.
I think you saying Camille is insecure was wrong. You made that decision in your head at the airport and then said it to her in the hotel room. I can see why she is upset. Your fear of going on vacation without your husband caused you to say something to Camille that offended her. You then went on to say she is insecure. I would be offended by that comment myself.
Dear Kyle, You are by far the best HW! You are a great wife to an awesome husband! You are a great mother to awesome (and might I say BEAUTIFUL) children. You are the 'REALEST" HW on the show. I am "Team Kyle" all the way. You have really good style and your hair is to die for. I say all this because I wholeheartedly believe that the reason Camille is hell bent on attacking your character is because you are and have EVERYTHING she is trying so hard to convince us she is and has. Camille was very out of line in Vegas and had she have acted that way around my husband the show would be no-more. Kyle, please continue to be you and Kuddos for having the most kids and not one nanny !
Kyle you are an amazing and honest person and it shows on the show....Camille showed how childish and insecure she is by continuously haggling about a statement she thought she heard and the fact that you tried to clear up with her in private show adult behavior....also I'm very sad that Camille would say in her diary interview that she won because really she looked INSECURE
Kyle, you are so right about Camille. She is insecure. She hears what she wants to hear and she was not going to let the attention off her for a moment - that's why she brought it up again downstairs. With men she can use her body for attention. That doesn't work with women. SHY? SHe's kidding right? Considering she was dancing like a pole stripper at the Jay Z concert, doing shots with the husbands, etc. she's hardly the "shy" girl.
Take a hint from Kelsey..stay away from her. She is a walking contradiction. She says she doesn't drink yet every scene she has booze in her hand. She has no relationship with her children and envies you for yours. She hates that your confident and not afraid to confront her. She is fake. She is the woman all women can't stand. And for good reason. You've got her MO.
Kyle Kyle Kyle, that was a dig. Camille has been insecure. She even reafirmed her insecurities when she said, "she felt like an outsider." When she confronted you on the insecurity front. A good response could have been, "were all insecure in our own way." Camille treated you all to her husbands show. You should have left her alone. She's not bad. Telling Camille she needs a therapist is a low blow to all people who see them. Sorry Kyle, you did lose this one. I'm a huge fan of yours and not of Camille. What happened?
Kyle, I honestly think that Camille was starting crap with you. If I was in your shoe I would defend myself as well, her comment about you being angry meaning she won was complete crap. I am sure people who watch this show can easily see that you would not say something like that. Don't worry about her and know that your viewers got your back =D. Keep being sweet and fun and beautiful!!!!
The only logical explanation is that Camille misunderstood you. You even gave her an out by telling her you don't she was lying on purpose, and that really is what she thought she heard. The only reason she stayed calm is that she wasn't be accused of lying or doing something she did not do. She's the only one who thinks about Kelsey all the time. When she is in a scene, I never think, "Where's Kelsey?" She needs to get over herself; She'd be surprised how many people never think about her and how rare those that think about her, do.
I'm with Kyle on this one. It is only obvious that Camille needs some serious therapy and has issues with insecurity. Also, it was really creepy when she was saying, during her interview, that she felt she "won" the argument because Kyle was worked up and she was keeping her cool........Ok Crazy! I felt really bad for you Kyle. I just hope that we see your sister come to your defense next week. xo Jen
That is one scorned woman. You did nothing wrong Kyle. You were just being you and she doesn't like it. You can see the jealousy coming out of her just by the way she looks at you. Not your fault. Keep being you. You are beautiful nice and everyone loves you. I felt so bad she was attacking you in such a hateful manner. It was scary. She looks glossed over. Her eyes are just not right. She looks as if she does need professional help. And that other one that jumped your sister pissed me off! She just has this look like she likes to stir the pot. I could see it and I think your sister saw that and called her out.
It's got to be hard for all of you to watch these episodes when it happened five months ago and so much has happened between you all since then.
Chin up though you all have been so fun to watch.
The way that Camille overreacted to your statement about not being secure just proved your point that she overreacted to your questions about her spring break plans. And it's hard to not think she's a little paranoid about feeling like second fiddle to Kelsey when she constantly mentions that she always feels like he gets the spotlight. And you also came across as being very direct and honest about your feelings, and like you would own up to something if you had really said it. I think Camille came across poorly, not you.
You don't have to explain or defend anything you said/did. You were completely rational and nice when you took Camille in the other room to clear the air... I don't know, the girl has problems.
I completely agree with your assessment and I was flabbergasted while watching the show.
I think Camille is very insecure and - well manipulative came to mind also.
At the end of the day, whether she can admit it or not, she is intimidated by your strength and self assurance.
Sad for her.
I think Kyle hit the nail on the head when she told Camille that if she felt like she was actually calling her insecure when she told her not TO BE insecure, then it is because she is obviously having issues with insecurity. Which as a viewer, we know Camille does have insecurity issues or she wouldn't have to spend so much time trying to get other people's husbands to flirt with her. I think on every episode she has flaunted herself in front of another man and demanded that he flirt with her and tell her how hot she is. Gross!!! No wonder Kelsey dumped this train wreck. Kyle is awesome!!!
I agree, Camille is this show's Kelly!!! You are awesome. Certainly you are direct, and people don't like to call things by their name and be accountable. Someone's gotta keep it straight though. You are beautiful and intelligent; keep it up =D
Kyle, you seem to be on target re Camille. Don't let her get under your skin. She seems to be making her own bed. It's becoming a signature of the Housewives' series to have one kook in every cast of characters: Nene, Kelly, Danielle, and now Camille. But, they do get the most attention! See you next week!
