Mother Hen

Kyle only wants the best for Kim, even if that's not what it looks like from the outside.

This weeks episode was a great escape from the drama that unfolded in New York. I was looking forward to seeing the girls and laughing at Lisa's dinner party at Mohammed's. In particular, I was looking forward to having a fun carefree time with Kim. Plus, I really want Kim to find someone with whom she can share her life with, and I was curious to see if Kim and Martin would hit it off or not. I really like Martin and had high hopes.

I am so happy in this weeks episode you see another aspect of Kim's and my relationship. Sister relationships can be very complex. One minute wanting to scream at them and the next laughing so hard you cry. Kim and I were always very close. When I was little I wouldn't leave her side. She couldn't even go to a sleep over without taking me with her (much to her friends disappointment).

I realize I come off as angry toward Kim at times. I knew when we decided to do this show that I was taking that risk. It would be easy to pretend everything is perfect all the time but I wanted to be 100 percent honest about who I am. I am not perfect. That's for sure.

It makes me sad when people think I don't care about my sister because of how I react to her at times. I react the way I do because of how much I love her. Nothing is more important to me than family. Also, people don't know what let me to feel the way I did at that moment. Yes, we are followed by cameras, but only since the show started. They haven't been following us all our lives. There are also moments that are missed (such as the argument between Camille and me).

Our mother was very strong. Not only did I inherit that trait but I think I try to do and say what I think our Mother would to Kim. I forget sometimes that's not my job.

With that said, this has been a time of reflection for me. I can only hope that after seeing ourselves from an outsiders perspective, that we can all learn from this experience. I know that I certainly have.

Thank you so much for all your kind words and support. I read every single post here and they mean a lot to me.

Some answers to your questions:

1)The gold glasses I wore in New York are by Tom Ford.

2) You can find the green earrings like mine  at Jennifer Miller in New York.

3) The ring I wear on my right hand was made for me by Loree Rodkin (Beverly Hills) the diamond was my Mother's and its very sentimental to me.

Brandi: I Don't Enjoy Anger or Grudges

Brandi explains why she's ready to move on, as long as it doesn't mean kissing a**.

I’m back in L.A. after a wonderful trip to visit my family. I’d like to thank everyone for their support regarding my father’s health. Dad is back home and on his way to what will be a slow and long recovery, but he is getting better and that’s all that matters. I’m so grateful I was able to hang with my boys and family and just kick back, cook, watch my nieces and boys play, and relax.

So tonight’s show is pretty drama-free for me, which is great, because I’m in a happy place and sometimes watching old drama unfold can set me back a little, emotionally. And can anyone believe that we are on episode six, and I haven’t hit the sauce yet? Don’t worry, it's coming. It's not fun to be sober all of the time.

Lisa Rinna introduced her parents and her Medford, Oregon hometown to the audience tonight. I love to see where people are from. It was a heartfelt moment where she shared the regret of visiting her childhood home for the last time and the guilt of living far away from her aging parents. It was very moving watching Lisa R. trying to instill the gravity of the situation of aging, illness, and finality of life to her teenaged daughters. After the normal teenage resistance faded, they realized it was a serious trip, and I’m glad she insisted her girls accompany her on it. I have to add that after seeing Lois Rinna, I can see where Lisa’s got her eyes from, and Frank Rinna’s paintings are amazing. I want one.

Kyle’s BBQ was next with everyone having a pretty good time. It was a very nice party. Yo was looking perfect as always. Meeting Eileen was fun and talking about Days was fun, too. Yes, I was a fan back in the day. Once we sat down, Kim’s old acting stories about faking tennis on Magnum, P.I. were the best. Eileen’s husband, Vince, is really nice and had great stories, too. He was on a lot of TV shows, like Kim. Kim and Vince kept the laughs going.

It was nice to see Mauricio and hear about another vacation. He is always cool and relaxed, and it’s nice to see him doing so well. Anyway, when all is said and done, we all saw who the true star of the BBQ was…Yolanda’s sandals. Want!

Moving forward doesn’t involve me constantly kissing a**.

Brandi Glanville

Lisa V. and Ken were there, and despite the awkwardness, it was really nice to see them again. You could probably tell how uncomfortable I was feeling. You can also see, I tried. Hard. It was a bit awkward, but I did try my best to put the past behind us. Obviously this is going to take some time! Kyle said it best: “Lisa likes to hold on to grudges.” Again, Kyle said that, not me!

I don’t enjoy power plays, holding on to anger or grudges. I prefer peace, apologies, amends, and moving on. Life is hard enough without making it harder. Maybe relationships change but definitely trying for a peaceful coexistence is what I'm striving for at this point in my life. That said, moving forward doesn’t involve me constantly kissing a**. I won’t do that. Relationships have to be equal, right?

So, until next week, I hope all of you come watch my housewarming party. You’re all invited, and there’s going to be plenty of wine--my own personal label, actually (not that we have a name, yet)!

Happy holidays, peace, love, joy, and health to you and all your loved ones!

XOXO,

Brandi
