Adrienne admits she was surprised by what Lisa's party became and shares her thoughts on family relations.

First of all, a belated happy New Year!

Thanks to a crazy schedule it's been awhile since I’ve had a blog up. I've had the wonderful experience of meeting so many of you in person as I've been launching my shoe collection around the country, and I want to say thank you for making it such an amazing, positive experience. A lot of you have asked, and yes -- I'm working on additional collections as we speak. It's been an incredibly busy but exciting start to 2012.

That being said, I'm going to delve right in. Over the last few episodes you have seen that we were extremely emotional, and there was a lot going on in our group. Despite it all, I have to say it was wonderful to go to Hawaii with Paul, even though there were some bumps in the road.

I'm sure all of you parents understand that while we say we need to "get away," once you actually get on a plane without your kids, you miss them instantly. I can't remember the last time I went away for pleasure without my boys! Although the trip was enjoyable for Paul and I, the dinner brought back memories of the mainland and all its drama!

Having brothers, it's very interesting for me to see the dynamic between Kyle and Kim. With my brothers and I there is more light-hearted teasing, and we're competitive when it comes to business or sports. The one thing that is absolutely the same though is the love. I've known Kyle and Kim for quite some time, and I’ve seen them in their moments of joy as well as those moments we saw in Hawaii. I understood Kyle's frustration with Kim missing so many events -- when you love someone you want to share the great moments. There is a sense of regret in not sharing those moments and I know Kyle didn't want her sister to miss out on the fun.

Onto the opening of Lisa's restaurant, I remember the evening, unfortunately, being very stressful due to all of the heart-to-hearts that were taking place. I don't think you ever get dressed up and go to an event expecting it to turn into a therapy session in a back room!

I thought Taylor needed to be accountable for the position she put her friends in. You want to support your girlfriends, but it's difficult when you're being threatened with litigation as a result. However she did admit that and I admire her being candid and forthright about her role. It was an emotional rollercoaster for all involved. Ultimately she has my support as she gets back on her feet, and I wish her much happiness in her life moving forward.

Xoxo,
Adrienne

P.S. We are blessed to have a new addition to our family! She's a tiny Scottish Fold kitten, and Jackpot seems very proud of himself now that he's not the smallest thing in the house. Both Visco and Jackpot are so happy to have her to play with! She's darling, and we're still working on a name. Any ideas?

P.P.S. I've been thinking about getting another kitten as a playmate for my first, since Jackpot and Visco are such buddies. My house is starting to look like Noah's Ark. Even my twin boys came as a pair!

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
