First, I want to start off by thanking all of you for the enormous amount of support you have shown me. It means a lot to me- especially in a difficult time like last week. Your comments here, on Facebook, and on Twitter, were a great reminder of how kind people can be. Yes, I did take some heat for my relationship with my sister Kim. Rightfully so. If I didn't know our history, I would be equally as judgmental. Hopefully, you will see more one-on-one KIm and Kyle time where we can discuss our issues. I think this would be good for our relationship. I love her very much and should try to be gentler with her in spite of any unresolved issues we have. Doing a show like this teaches you a lot about yourself AND the other women on the show. I have never seen Kim as a meek or shy person. Kim has always been extremely strong, outgoing, and has as much "fire" in her as I do. I think Kim has just not been comfortable around this group of women. I give her an "A" for effort though. I know she wants to have a life outside of her children, as she deserves to have.
Lisa put on a beautiful charity luncheon to benefit a teenage burn victim. She put a lot of effort into this important day. I went there to support this young girl, as well as Lisa, and hopefully enjoy a luncheon with my closest friends. The day took a quick turn for the worst when I received the text from Camille. I was already so emotional from the Malibu dinner party and how ugly things have turned between Camille and me. The text was all I needed to bring me to tears. To be honest, I wasn't crying because of losing a client. It was the straw that broke the camel's back for me. If Camille didn't want to do business with my husband because of something that he had done, I would totally understand. However, Mauricio had nothing to do with it. My husband is the best at what he does and I know that. I also knew that he would be disappointed in me for letting the situation with Camille get to this. Mainly, because he doesn't like the negativity that the situation was bringing into our home. Of course, nobody wants to ever lose a client. However, he also would not want me to be friends with someone just for business.Of course, I felt nervous seeing Camille at Taylor's "Roaring Twenties" party. However, as soon as I saw her and we spoke, the ice was broken. I find Camille at times to be nice and quite likable. I'm not sure why things always turn so horribly wrong with us. The only thing I can think of is that we are simply oil and water. We just don't mix. The stubborn side of me keeps wanting to think we can get through this, but I think, even if we are able to dance at a party now and then without incident, we're just not meant to be friends. I have so many amazing friends in my life that I am SO grateful for. I think I will just leave it at that.
Some of you have asked me if I felt Camille's apology on Watch What Happens was sincere. I would like to think it was. I NEED to think it was so I can attempt to move on. Regardless of her timing, she did apologize for saying the things she said about my husband. That was important to me because Mauricio and I were shocked and hurt by those comments, and again, it's hard to see Mauricio who has nothing to do with this ( and has a stellar reputation ) being dragged into this.
Answers to your questions: The top I was wearing at Camille's dinner party is by Matthew Williamson; the cuff I was wearing is by Tory Burch; my lip gloss is Trish McEvoy "irresistible."
Until next week! ..... xo, Kyle
