On to a more serious subject. . .
They say that hindsight is 20/20. Well if that is true, then watching events play out on television means you suddenly get X-ray vision, and you can see absolutely everything. Going into the spa day I didn't have that luxury. All I knew of Game Night was the overall picture of what both Brandi and Kyle had relayed to me, and one of the things that had stuck out to me was Brandi's comment about Kim, which both Brandi and Kyle admitted took place. I knew that any comment about her sister from a virtual stranger would be a huge trigger for Kyle, so at that point I thought I understood what had taken place and why Kyle acted the way she did. I didn’t excuse it, but I thought I understood it. I didn’t know about all of the other details from that difficult night, so when the girls got together at my spa day I believed that the first extension of the olive branch rested on Brandi’s plate.
Knowing what I know now, I would obviously have made different choices.
Do I think that Kyle and Kim were right to treat Brandi that way on game night? No, of course not. Absolutely not. But I’m not alone in that sentiment. Kyle herself has been the first one to step out and say that she isn’t proud of her actions, and as her friend, I have to tell you that isn't the Kyle I know, either. You are seeing one side of her. People are wondering why I am not coming down harder on her, but you are only seeing one side of her. You have to understand that I see all the other sides of her, too and I know that you are seeing some of her self-admittedly worst moments. I think we are all human, we all make mistakes -- some that are very painful for others -- and if the whole world judged us solely on those bad moments, no one would come out a winner.
There is something else that I don't think people realize. At the time of the spa day, I had known Kyle a lot longer than I had known Brandi. I see Brandi as very real, and what you see with Brandi is what you get with her, which makes me appreciate her all that much more. I enjoy her company, and therefore introduced her to the group. But I had known Kyle longer, and maybe that's why I had a tendency to give her more leeway, as anyone might when it's a good friend who is involved.
LOVE ya ... Can you please list what treatments and when & how oftern they should be done. Your skin & Kyle's look amazing.
Adrienne your the best. I loved that you comment on the episode and take everyone's feelings into account. Cheers to you
Adrienne, thanks for your blog. I was quite disappointed that everyone including you have been coddling Kyle.
Here you are supposed to be the classy, smart housewife and YOU invite someone to your spa party and as the HOSTESS, YOU demand they apologize for a fight YOU didn't even witness? OMG, YOU SUCK.
Your the worst.friend.ever.
I just LOVE you!!!! You are so level headed and I can relate to the peace keeper portion! Keep up the good will girl!!
You are awesome and thanks for explaining yourself! I was beginning to wonder why you thought the ball was in Brandi's court.
Adrienne - you are so special...I love you...I have the take out taxi on speed dial at my house too..God Bless you all...you will all end up being best buddies in the long run! I even bet that Kyle and Brandi will be best buddies in the end. xo Sue
I think Adrienne is the most authentic of all the housewives. She has an incredible work ethic, she's intelligent and obviously beautiful. The scene of her trying to cook a chicken was hysterical.
I sooo want to be you in my next life! Or I'd love to have a BFF like you!! You are so honest and down to earth! not to mention beautiful. You're my favorite HW.
I just love Chef Bernie! His facial expressions are absolutely priceless. I hope we see much more of him this season and next. As always, you are absolute perfection----chicken, no chicken, or soap on a rope chicken.
Adrienne: I appreciate the kindness that you show to all of the ladies on the show. There are some of the women that could take a lesson or two from your classy behavior.
I was very disappointed on you on spa day. I was going to leave a negative comment but then read your blog. Brandi needs a personal apology from you.
Thank you! I was dieing for Brandi -- too much to ask her to apologize, was so looking forward to seeing this on your blog!
Love you Adrienne, yes you are the classiest woman ever & a good friend. I still LOVE Kyle as you do not so sure about Branndi she seems sneeky to me & should mind her own business most of the time.
You seem to be a great friend. However, you really should have had Brandi's back. I mean, you took Kyle's word for what happened and now you have egg on your face. It's best to keep quiet on events that took place when you were not around.
Adrienne, Thank you. I am relieved to read your post and get a confirmation that you were not aware of the severity of the hateful actions towards Brandi on GNight. Watching everyone trying to force her to apologize was just horrible to watch. Everyone with even half of heart wanted to jump in save her.
Such a class act. I can understand your loyalty to Kyle because you knew her the longest, but you are also great friends. You are a great friend. You sure are considerate of eveyone's feelings too. WTG. Love YOU, KYLE & LISA.....
P.S. So funny washing the chicken with soap....hysterical!
You are so adorable and fair. Your the perfect example of reaping the rewards of honest living. God bless you and your family.
Dear Adrienne: Quiet elegance, charming sophistication and a gentle heart is what makes you. You have no idea of the number of fans you have.
You're the best! I like the way you handle yourself. I am so glad to read what you had to say in your blog. When I watched the show tonight, I was so angry with you and Lisa! I didn't think that you had all the facts about game night. At least you can admit when you are wrong and apologize. You're a class act! I was worried for a minute, but, you are still my favorite BH housewife!
I have to start by saying you look amazing!!!!!! I loved your dress at spa night.
You have always been my favorite, but I was ready to throw in the towel on you after watching spa night. But after reading your blog...I am still your fan. But please pick your friends wisely. Brandi is a keeper. Kyle, not so much.
more money than anyone can rap their heads around and grounded//you're too paradoxical it's frustratingly arghhh!!!!!!! but i heart you oh so very much
Adrienne, I will admit that you jumped on the Kyle bandwagon a little prematurely. But unlike Lisa, you at least had two version's of the story before forming an opinion about who was at fault.
Adrienne.. you are such a positive, shining white light!! You are full of compassion and love,the role model that all of these other"grown up" women should aspire to be!! Thank-you for bringing grace, class and a generous heart each and every day, thank you for showing the nation how a true woman can be!!!
I really love the way you reason everything out and then act. ALL of the other housewives have insulted each other and at one point or another have been mean, except you. You have wealth and still remain really down to earth, you are one class act. Salt of the earth.
I love you so much..you are so full of compassion and have a beautiful heart!!! Do not allow women like kyle and her sister to get away with there treatment of others. I think that only you can stand up to the two sisters and actually get the point across. How they behave is rude, selfish, full of egotism and judgement. They should be very careful not to throw stones when you live in glass houses.
I believe that only you could make those women realize how childish, insensitive and self serving they really are!! Do not let Kyle and Kim bully you into agreeing with there behaviour, you know better than that.
Be strong Adrienne, you have excellent judgement of character, follow through with your instincts, especially when it come to Kim and the help that she needs. You are an inspiration..do not let us down!!!
Adrienne you seem to have a level head in every situation you are genuine and are one of my faves. You keep it sexy at all times and you handle your business. I wish we saw you more. I think you should sit on Queen Lisa's court as like a royal advisor. Lisa means no harm and it was really her quick whit that said that comment about the bedroom. She comes off as very genuine in her reactions even if at times she is a bia bia she is certainly the same person we saw last week as oppsed to the other members whose actions surprise you weekly.
I would love to stay at your place adrienne! you are my favourite by far. your blog speaks the truth and i'm glad you see that brandi was not all in the wrong and didn't necessarily need to make the first move. it was big of her to do so and being the new one in the group, it would have ended that way anyways. but it was obvious kim wasn't going to accept the apology so there was no point in everyone pushing her to apolgoize. brandi is one smart cookie to leave before everyone put her on the spot to do so. kim hid her crutches for pete's sake! i really respect that you attempt to be the peacemaker. you were a great host. you thought of absolutely everything from flip flops to robes to OMG those machines!!! i wish i had your life :)
I know everyone loves you but....I wasn't happy with you at all on this episode. I usually think you're the most level headed person too. Yes, I realize you didn't know what happened on Game Night but still, you wouldn't let it rest. You kept pressing Brandi to apologize. Next time, stay out of it or don't try so hard to make peace. Just saying you're sorry doesn't make it all "happy". Haven't you ever had a fight with your hubby?? What if I told you five minutes after the fight, please say you're sorry. NO, you need cooling off time....you need to think things through. You are always trying to make it all better and that doesn't always happen. Get all the facts next time.
You are absolutely my favorite. So classy and down to earth. Being the peacekeeper can be exhausting. Hope you give yourself a break.
I love your blogs, they are the most humorous and thoughtful of any 'housewife'. Can I live in your guest house? XOXO
You always handle things with such class and grace...being in the middle between friends is hard but as always you handled it wonderfully.
Great blog. I have to say though, regarding Kyle - she has shown a side to her that if she were my friend, I would be forever suspicious of her. Also regarding Kim, yes I understand how all the girls thought the crystal Meth was the lowest blow of the night but us viewers were just thrilled that finally someone called out the elephant in the room! And Brandi was brave enough to do it to Kims face not behind her back, like your husband did.
Adrianne I think you're wrong about Kyle. She was dreadfully rude and mocked Brandi at her own charity event. This IS Kyle. Every time we see her she's trashing that poor girl. Usually you're gracious to a guest when you're the hostess, not Kyle. I believe it's time you started looking at the whole package. She treated Camille like this and now it's Brandi. Only this time Kyle has a whole team helping her bully.
P.P.S. I really do love my family too much to cook for them
LOLOLOL love ou! I'm gonna use this one on My family!!!!!
Adrienne, I too also agree you with these other fans, are the most levelheaded one there. I was truly upset with the way Kyle most of all treated Brandi at game night..Sadly you have a taped episode to go back on, if it werent for that I don't think Kyle would have felt that bad, she has treated Brandi from the beginning badly! When Brandi's son peed in your grass, she couldn't have gotten up to scold him, I know most boys at that age would have run away when mommy went and grabbed them to scold them. She was in a cast with a broken foot for goodness sake. I''m sure it was just as embarassing for her to see her son doing that, but then again, even you made an excuse your boys are that way. Kyle doesnt have boys she has NO idea! I have three and I know they have ALL done it, actually mine peed off our deck! LOL.. game night was a disaster, and I'm not going to accuse Kim of having certain drugs or "something" in her system, but she is obviously one with a problem, it has been played out in many episodes this season! she WAS not nice from the time she came in the door to Brandi; shame on the sister's in the first place. Keep up the wonderful friend job you are doing. I'm sure you were just trying to keep the peace! That is a wonderful characteristic of a true friend!
Love, love, love you but "really" you have to admit some of the bh wives are pretty tasteless. I feel one day you will explode holding everything in. I truly think you are great to watch very in control. Paul does often get a smack or two from you. Poor guy. I think you marriage is great!!!
I'm not sure what it is about you, but you are not at all what I expected. I think I expected someone of your wealth to be a snob who is not in touch with the "real world" but you are the complete opposite. You seem to be the only housewife in the entire franchise who is #1, humble, #2 sincere, #3 REAL! I admire you so much and think you are a very positive role model for young women! Thank you!!
Adrienne- I adore you and your family. So down to earth even though you have so much. Hard earned and appreciated in the right way.
One thing I want to comment on is that you might want to realize that Kyle (and many others) tells the story of events from her own point of view, not explaining what really happened. To take things at face value and react from one side is not a realistic way to handle it. I was frustrated watching you repeating "I know" to Brandi, when it was clear you were not listening to a word she said. You are a fair person and have a tendency to relate events as they really happen, but some of your castmates do not. Kyle and Kim especially- please take what they say in the future with a pound of salt and make sure you know what's going on before you make judgments on someone else.
That said- I LUV you and wish you all the best in the future. Hope all the business issues are going in your favor- it touched me how concerned you really are for the people in Sacramento who are so supportive of your team there. Lovely to see that interaction between you and them. xx
