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.

Blondes are beautiful, but You are a true beauty. When you hold your hair up in a clip. You are the perfect example of "Wonder Woman" you need nothing else.
Thank you for sharing your life with us on the show. It is definitely entertaining. You are so blessed to have such a wonderful family and husband, although I think a lot of that has to do with making the right choices along the way. You and Kim remind me of me and my sister. It's tough to understand why we are hardest on the people we love the most!
I'm looking forward to watching the rest of the show. Hopefully, Camille bothers you less and less as the show goes on. It was so frustrating to watch you lose your cool and see her think she was winning! Don't spend another moment's thought on it. She truly does win with every moment you waste on her.
Kyle & Mauricio ~
Hats off to you and the way you live life - with grace, class, elegance and style. May you be blessed to always have the strength of the marriage you have right now and to not let the temptations of fame and good fortune break that union. Your dedication to each other is inspiring and reminds me of my husband and I - even though he's half a world a way in the middle of the war right now. Though we haven't been blessed with the lifestyle you lead, we are rich beyond our wildest dreams in our marriage.
I have stopped trying to figure out other's motivation on this show for actions that seem to keep being rehashed but the way you & Mauricio have both handled it on the show and in the press is a very refreshing.
May your family be blessed at the holidays and always. Happy Hanukkah :)
LUV d BH Housewives! Kyle is real pretty and Camile needs a reality check. A taste of the real world, but maybe since her X found a new and improved version of her, she can eat her words.
That facial remedy looks interesting. Would like to try it out! Where and what kind of a facial is that?
kyle- random question. what nail polish (pinkish/white) were you wearing in tonight's (Dec. 2) episode. love!
You are my favorite Bev Hills Housewife. I think you have morals that you defend and that is something that deserves respect, in my opinion. :)
i LOVE your dress at Mohammed's dinner party!! you looked great...where is it from?? you should make a style blog!
No doubt you love your sister-I saw in this episode how much you two really look alike. I wonder how Kim would look as a brunette? :) I think that was some really good advice you gave Taylor.
Well, Kyle youre really beautiful seemingly inside and out. I guess it wouldnt hurt to show a little more loyalty to your sister amongst friends. But hey, im from the old school, " if you mess with my family you mess with me." In any case, I think youre awesome. Good luck on figuring out reality tv.
Kyle, you come across as a terrific sister and person!! Of course there are times when a sister you love can drive you crazy at the same time! Ignore the people that chastise you otherwise, not all of us can be as constantly loving and enabling as they must be to everyone in their lives :) :). Living in a fishbowl is not always fun, but I appreciate you letting us watch your world for a while!! It would be worth it to me if I could go to a party at that house too!! It was amazing and I loved the dress you wore! What a fantastic color!
I think your approach towards Kim is very harsh. I find you to be rude and abrasive. You really need to tone it down if you want to be viewed as you have portrayed yourself.
I think it is great you read the comments! You are my favorite housewife - you're just gorgeous. I understand the sister relationship completely, but it is good that you being introspective and willing to change. I hope the drama with Camille doesn't ramp up too much. She really doesn't deserve any further attention! Your marriage is very much like my own - lots of kids, lots of love, and best friends.
You are so open and sweet. You seem so genuine and it's so refreshing, especially living in Beverly Hills. This show portrays a lifestyle many of us cannot relate to, however, we can relate to and discern the love you have for your family. And even through your posts, one can tell the caring heart you are. Even though you come across as strong, you also seem to feel deeply. I realize I do not know you personally, but this is the feeling I get. You know when you are in the public eye, there are always going to be people who will judge. I hope you don't mind me writing and I know you know this, but stay true to yourself and ultimately your relationship between your sister is between the both of you and no one else. I wish you peace an happiness.
Can you provide the name and contact information of your facialist karina? I'd like to surprise my wife with an appointment to see her. Also what was the name of the procedure you and Kim got?
You are by far, my favorite houseswife, from ALL the franchises. You seem very real and I love your relationship with you hubby and kids. They need to show MORE of that. Camille revealed her true colors with the pecking order comment. Although, I do feel for her at this difficult time. Stay true to yourself...
Kyle, we get it. You love your sister. You are being hard on yourself because having a sister myself, I'm aware of the complex dynamics and how it would appear to others only seeing snippets. Instead of devoting your blog to defending yourself and expressing your love for her, dish the rest! Your husband is gorgeous, as is your house and family. Kim seems a little fragile, but she'll be fine. With or without.
Love that Camille is still throwing digs, even when she was only seen trying on dresses for people apparently paid to oogle her. She really can't let go, can she?
Kyle, You are a good sister, my sister and I go through rough times also. We are the best of friends. I too understand your relationship with your sister. She need you more emotionally than you need her, this could change at anytime. Be strong for the both of you.
Acceptance or Control? I"ve watched the pain on Kim"s face time after time. Your words have hurt her many times during the show. It appears you have some control issues. Perhaps you need to step back and "rewind". Watch the show several times and see it from the outside. The approach your using is not working. You can"t change another person, but you can change the way you react to them. Try accepting her for who she is and not who you want her to be.
Kyle, I believe what we see is what we get on the show and I think you are great. I love the fact that you are not trying to be perfect. I think you and your family are beautiful!!! I love your spirit that comes across the screen. Be encouraged, I hope you don't let the negative comments get to you!
I am the 2nd oldest of five girles. We are in our late 40's and early 50's now and nothing has changed. We fight like cats and dogs but let some outsider mess with one of us and you have five mad maniacs coming for you.
I have a sister, as well and I tend to be the "mother hen" with her as well. I know what you are saying- it really is out of good intentions and love. Sometimes you have to let her fly, though and that has been especially difficult for me! I think you are great. You are definately the one housewife I can relate to the most. Thanks for "keepin' it real!"
All relationships are tough. Sister relationships are some of the toughest and most special of all. We all need to grow and make changes from our experiences. But I think that your love and dedication to your sister's happiness is obvious.
Anyone with sisters understands the complex relationship between sisters. The love you have for your sister is very evident to me and there is usually a mother hen in every set of siblings. It is what it is.
Kyle! You are my FAVORITE of all time! You are such a lovely gal. I especially love your style! Totally dying for a pair of Tom Ford sunglasses like yours. You make them look fabulous! Stay real... I think you are the only one! :) Merry Christmas to you and your family!
Kyle I understand what you mean regarding your sister. I have two and at times we argue but what family doesn't? It doesn't mean that we do not love and respect each other. I absolutely LOVE you on the show. You are so georgous and I think that you and your husband make a hot couple. Until next week.
XOXO Angela M.
You read the comments? Cool. Love you guys, love the show. As for the cameras not capturing the fight between you and Camille, I wouldn't even give that a second thought. I think it is obvious to anyone that 1) You are not mean enough to say or think something like that 2)Even if you had us all snowed and were mean enough to think that no one would care about Camille without Kelsey, you wouldn't be stupid enough to say it. That would be totally self-destructive on your part. Keep on being awesome darling:)
You read the comments? Cool. Love you, love the show. As for the cameras not capturing the fight between you and Camille, I wouldn't give it a second thought. It's obvious to anyone that..... 1) You are not mean enough to even think that no one would be interested in Camille without Kelsey 2) Even if you had us all snowed and were mean enough to think something like that, you wouldn't be stupid enough to say it. That would make you look bad and would negatively affect your husband. Keep on rocking and remember you have a very high level of awesomeness (no reason to be insecure-lol)
I get your relationship with your sister. I have an older sister and sometimes we argue, (but that's only because we want the best for each other). It just can't be helped. But the good times far out-weigh the tough times. Mad one minute..crying....then laughing. You get over it.
Love watching your show. It's such an escape for me. Being a single mom with two kids...it is an escape to dream. It really is.
You and your husband are so great together. Great family. Great show.
Thank you, Sandy
Kyle after 7 episodes, you are still my favorite! I have to tell you that you are just as beautiful without makeup as you are with. After your facial with Kim, you two looked in the mirror and I saw your true beauty! You and Mauricio make such a beautiful couple.
I can't help but wish you would start a clothing line - you are just perfection, your style is classy and breezy, and you always look impeccable. Even after that facial - you are gorgeous! :) Share that style with the world, and keep up the great attitude.
Hi Kyle, I think your a wonderful mother, Wife, friend & sister. You and & Betenny are my fave and so is Lisa.
Kyle, I love that you speak your mind. You and your husband are a gorgeous couple. Keep doing what you do!
This was a nice blog and a good reminder that we viewers are not seeing everything. That said, I'm glad you're reflecting and I do think you can be a little more verbally kind to your sister. Instead of your words to her hitting like a sledge hammer, maybe infuse a little empathy with your spoken thoughts? Thanks again for your blog.
Kyle, Love you! You are smart, caring and stunningly beautiful in a NATURAL looking way....which is RARE in LA...so it's all the more wonderful. You're a standout and a refreshing new "type" for a "Housewives" show.
Kim, As a woman who has SIX sisters let me tell you - you don't pick on Kim, you guide her. Please do not listen to others who write that you are mean or pick on her, it's totally not true! Believe me I know exactly how you feel, I have four older sisters and two younger so I get in the middle ALOT!!! She is very lucky to have such a kind and loving sister like you:) Good luck with the Camille issue - that's the only thing that irks me about Kim, not defending you there. Please post Bravo - much appreciated!!
I understand your frustrations with Kim. I have a sister that is similar and nature and it is hard to watch some of the choices made and the waythey behave sometimes. Kim comes across a little unfocused and all over the map and it seems like you are always trying to keep her going down a staright path. I admire your relationship with your sister and see your viewpoint and understand why you speak with Kim the way that you do..Hats off to you for being such a caring sister.
I just love you! Not only are you beautiful, but you are a great sister, mom, and friend. Your little talk with Taylor really showe that you are a very caring person with a big heart. Just because you are a strong woman who speaks her mind does not mean that you can't be sweet and caring toward others. Please share with use more information about the facials you and Kim had. You both looked so fresh and young afterward-what are these facials called? I MUST see if I can get one here in the Chicago area. Keep on being yourself-you are wonderful!
Condescending aura about you when around Kim, that's like: 'sigh-fine,I'll help you out again, and just take my advice since I have it all.' Please try to have a more humble heart when dealing with your sister. Just saying what it looks like from the outside-and I have 5 sisters so I've seen all types of sisterly bonds and/or lack of.
You are definitely my favorite housewife!!! You remind me so much of my own friends- so down to earth and funny! I love watching the show- Beverly Hills has become my favorite (I never thought I would like any Housewives more than NY!) I will be so sad when this season is over!
Kyle, it became crystal clear to me what the problem is with a couple of these ladies(Camille, Taylor). Camille has accused you of being jealous of her but I think it's the other way around. I think those ladies are jealous of your marriage and the loving way that you and Mauricio interact with one another and the warmness that you exude when caring for your children. It became even more evident with the conversation between you and Taylor over lunch. You gave her very sound advice, empowered her to feel good about her worth as a woman and managed to build her up instead of tearing her down. You're a very vibrant, confident woman and for whatever reason it tends to turn of less confident, insecure women. Don't change a thing about yourself!
touchofgold, obviously you don't have sisters and didn't read kyle's blog. she has shared a lifetime with kim and knows much more that you do about what is best for her. sometimes, tough love is exactly what is needed. wonder why you think kyle is rude and abrasive? none of the other cast mates think that except for crazy camille...
I think you are so great- so down to earth and funny. You remind me of my own friends and I have had so much fun watching this show. I never thought I would like a Housewives more than NY- but Beverly Hills is now my favorite (thanks so much to you and Lisa in particular!)!!!!
Kyle, I am very close to my sister and we also bicker from time to time. When you have that unconditional love, like sisters do, it's easy to seem harsh at times when expressing concern. I enjoy watching you on the show. Your off the collar comments are usually right on track with the sentiments of most women, I'm sure! Keep being honest and true to yourself. It's a breath of fresh air.
Hey Kyle i think your such a sweetheart,i don't think you mean any harm to Kim,your just a protective sister wanting the best for her.I love kim also she's so funny..Kyle I wanted to ask about your Orchid plants I love Orchids are those real.I have been looking for some but can't find any.Thanks Kyle and keep being you your just wonderful.
Kyle, You obviously care about Kim so much it hurts and you worry about her constantly. She is so lucky to have you!! I have that "worry gene" too and can totally relate to you in so many ways, right down to your fear of flying and thinking you're going down every time. I'm 26 and just got married and I'm excited to have kids, but I worry (haha) that I'm going to worry too much about them! Seeing you with your kids and seeing that you can deal with your worry is comforting for me. You're such a great mom and your marriage is truly inspiring to newlyweds and experienced married couples alike. We love you!
Kyle, you are a great sister! It's obvious you have Kim's best interests in mind. I know you want her to be happy and have a great relationship of her own. But her pattern of picking the wrong man worries you. While watching the show last night, I thought of an excellent new book to help her break the cycle of divorce. It's called "If Your Parents Divorced, Will You Too?" by Sharon Brooks. And since divorce is often passed down from generation to generation, her children really need to read it, too. Sometimes our family members don't want to take advice directly from us, but can greatly benefit from reading on their own. Your love for her and her children is refreshing.
