On to viewer questions from the previous episode.

Q: RHOBHfan commented she is frustrated that some people claim all reality TV is scripted.
A: I can't speak for all reality shows, but RHOBH is definitely not. Although Kim, Kyle, and Lisa have acted in the past, they are living their real lives in front of our cameras -- as is everyone on our show. With all that has happened this year on our show, it is difficult to see how anyone could think it could be scripted.

Q: Several viewers questioned the veracity of Taylor's "lost" phone. NC, NJ wondered what the content of Kyle's messages to Taylor were and if Taylor then deliberately "lost" her phone.
A: I can vouch for the truth of Taylor's lost phone. Our crew had been trying to reach Taylor for days to confirm she was attending the White Party to no avail. As far as what Kyle texted Taylor, I believe it was all along the lines of "Call me ASAP."

Q: HauteCoco had two questions. 1. Was Russell removing his microphone in the limo? 2. Do the ladies always ride in vehicles with hired drivers?
A: Yes, Russell was indeed removing his microphone in the limo. That is why our sound operators always have boom mics to capture un-microphoned people or people who remove theirs. The ladies usually take a limo service whenever they are attending events that provide alcohol. We sometimes shoot in their cars (Kim on the way to Paul's office, for example.) But if alcohol is served, everyone obviously avoids drinking and driving.
