The White party! Watching Kyle prep for her party, I can hear the stress in her voice. As it goes in Beverly Hills, there is never a dull party, and I can tell Kyle was worried about all the different personalities coming to the party (and, of course, the friction between her friends and family).
Going into the evening, I was aware of the email Russell had sent to Camille, and I truly felt horrible for her. I felt she was being made into the scapegoat for a situation that really had nothing to do with her.
I honestly feel that Paul was the lone voice of reason in this episode. I agree with everything he said.
Kyle's house looked amazing and all the ladies looked beautiful. And, ladies and gentleman, this was a big moment: my cast is totally off. This was the first time I was in high heels on not one, but two feet. Haha.
My close friend Jennifer came along to the party to make sure I didn't trip and fall, and to make sure I had someone there to keep an eye out for me. Kim was going on about me liking my broken leg, but, ummm, my cast was off.
Love, love, you Brandi! You are too cute & hysterically funny. Loved when you said "I say F all the time. F, F, F, F, F!!!!" I almost choked on my egg nog! Stay true to who you are & the rest will fall into place.
Kim came in with a negative attitude. You handled the Kim situation perfectly. After she would not listen to reason you just let her rant and rave. You are a wonderful addition to the show.
Brandi Im so happy to see your other foot lmao. I was also glad that you kept your cool and didn't get on Kim's level because that would have been out of control. You are my favorite cast member and you DESERVE to become an official housewife.
You handled yourself extremely well when it came to Kim lashing out at you. I'm sure it was difficult to stay calm, but you came out of the situation the bigger person. You deserve a lot of respect for that.
You handled yourself with class during the exchange with Kim at the White Party. Kim looked like a nut while you stayed calm and collected. Kim was using you as a scapegoat for her anger and she was upset that you called her out as being high/drunk. The only thing you mis-spoke about was the substance. She may not have been on crack that night, but she was clearly on something. Love watching you!
You handled yourself beautifully with Kim! Good job!! I laughed out loud. You obviously hit a major nerve with her. The truth hurts! I hope when she comes out of rehab she will apologize to you. Maybe she needs to rewatch the game night show with a clearer mind to see how nasty she was acting towards you. You didn't start anything. What were supposed to do...sit there and just take it without defending yourself? Stay strong...I really like you on the show.
Brandi, quit trying to get approval from women who are lost themselves! You donot have to prove nothing to none of this broads! Don't sell yourself short to fit in. Either they like you or not! At the end of the day nobody has a heaven or hell to put you in! lol
Kudos to you. Thought you were very gracious on the episode, especially in light of Kim's ill mannered, weird and uncouth behavior (she also deliberately coughed more than a few times over Lisa, how grade school is that?). Your comments about the surrounding drama were very wise. Let the dust settle. Avoid Kim. Evidently more than a few agree a little of her goes a looooooooooooooooong way.
Again, you handled yourself well with Kim!! I am amazed at what a wonderful person you are!! Keep it up girl!! You are definitely fun to watch! It was great to see you with two shoes on!!
I thought you handled yourself in a very classy way. You are better than me because I would have snatched Kim by her ponytail drag her outside and beat the trainwreck out of her. You truly are a very sweet, down to earth, and CLASSY woman.
I couldn't agree with you more Brandi!!! You did absolutely nothing wrong to Kim and I'm glad you didn't stoop down and I mean DOWN to her level. She is def another crazy narcissistic woman, best to leave her to the psychotherapists!!! I totally agree with Paul also, another crazy Taylor, best thing for her was not to come to the party. As for Kyle, I really do like her but the tears were unnecessary, you could tell she really didn't care. She won't be getting an Oscar for that performance. I'm glad your part of the cast, PLEASE don't leave, they need more NORMAL people like you.
Brandi - You handled Krazy Kim with style. Wasn't sure if she was over medicated or undermedicated. I think she is so jealous of you this is the only way she knows how to show it. Just keep on keeping it real and be youself. Haters like "KK" just aren't worth it.
Brandi, I like you more each episode. You're probably the biggest reason Kim's getting the help she needs now because of how she turns into a bitter, juvenile lunatic everytime she gets around you. While I hope she gets healthy and stable, I really hope she isn't brought back next season; she's nasty and full of poison.
You showed class and elegance and i agree who cares about the f word!! When your down right rude and jealous like Kim it proves that you are by far more classier and nice! Just shine on girl, let the haters hate, who cares you are blessed with beauty and most of all pride!
Brandi ~ I absolutely adore you! I think you handled this entire situation with CLASS.. I would've thrown a drink on Kim and/or hit her if not both.. I couldn't believe she was even going to involve her CHILD in this fight with you.. you did GREAT.. best way to handle the situation... I hope she gets the help she OBVIOUSLY needs As for the situation with Taylor and Russell.. again handle with class.. I'm thoroughly confused as to what the truth is and we will never know the entire TRUTH.. and it's none of our business... Paul and A handled it great!
CONGRATS on the no boot! Can't wait to see you in Hawaii!
Brandi- kudos to you for how you've handled Kim. No sane person who witnessed that ugly scene at the party could condone Kim's behaviour.
It's obvious that she's dealing with some pretty heavy issues, but that does not excuse her attacks on you- especially after you've continually tried to apologize and make amends.
Remember that when you're thrown into the Richard Sisters' insufferable social circles, you have fans who believe that you're the bigger person. All the best!
You are such a breath of fresh air. I hope they keep you on the show for next season. Kim was vile and you didn't stoop to her level. Good for you. Yes, attempting to bring her child into the drama was appalling. Thanks for pointing it out.
I love you Brandi! Your handling yourself very well with this "mean girls" this season. Keep having your chin up :)
Brandi you are the heart and soul of the housewives. You handled the situation with Kim with class and it's obvious she has serious issues. I hope you will be a full time cast member because you are the reason I tune in. Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas!
Kim's fight with you was pathetic. I don't know how you kept your cool. She needs to apologize to you for her immature behavior once she sobers up.
I didn't think I ws going to like you this season to be the most sensible and classy lady this year. Please don;t let bravo talk you into being confrontational next year....... love you when your on. Maybe your friend Jennifer could help Kim see her problem....... just saying.....
I think you're great Brandi! You're a better woman than most of us. Your handling of the whole Kim / Kyle situation was far better than any of your cast mates have done. I'm ashamed of the rest of the cast for humoring Kim in how poorly she treats you.
Brandi, I think to wish Kim health & happiness is truly the kindest way to approach yet another terrible encounter. Things were said, apologized for & just move on.... Kim is seeking help & hopefully along with that help comes forgiveness and a new start. Yes, I agree---Paul's view on how that situation should have been handled was really the best route for all involved. And, you're right, we won't know the truth about any of it. It all ended tragically and that's the saddest part. Nice blog! Happy Holidays to you and your children!
Brandi, I don't even know what to say about Kim. Last season I loved her and I felt so bad that everyone wasn't really letting her into their group of friends. Now I understand why. She's a nutcase. You did a great job of being the bigger person though, good for you girl!
I loved how you handled Kim, usually I want to jump through the screen and tell her off for you. You can't reason with crazy.
Brandi, you have grown to be one of my favorites on this show. You don't try to hide and be fake..........what you see is what you get and I get you. When you told Kim to "watch the finger", I was boiling on the inside because I know you wanted to snatch a knot in that lady but you handled yourself well.
Hopefully all the viewers who have been taking Kim's side can finally see, after this episode, that she was in the wrong...and still is apparently. Someone *cough cough* Kim *cough* needs to grow up. She made that whole situation a way bigger deal than it needed to be, and totally disrespected her sister flat out. Kyle asked her pleanty of times to not start crap and that's exactly what she did. I can't stand Kim...can you please take her spot next season!? :)
I love that you're honest and true to who you are. And there's nothing wrong with a pretty girl and a sailor mouth! ;P
brandi you have to stand up to kim and not let her run over you. if you let her as a grown woman talk to you in that way. i feel sorry for you!!! you have to stand up dont ever give people that much power over you to say anything to you without giving it back to them.
Brandi, You really handled yourself well at the party. You were very nice to Kim and were respectful. At least you tried, now you must leave the rest to her. It looks like she tried to bully you to take the attention from her own faults. You are a fun person and everyone else appreciates your style.
Brandi, you handled Kim perfectly. It was a riot, how you towered over her, and she was trying to sound so tough. A couple of times, I could see that you were trying not to laugh. She was babbling on like the fool that she is, saying that she wants nothing to do with you. You were like, "Fine", Kim: "I REALLY want NOTHING to do with you.", to which you'd say, "Fine".
I loved when you told Kim to, "WATCH THE FINGER". Another fun moment was when you said, "I say F*** all the time. F***, F***, F***" Kim didn't know what the heck to say, lol. I'm glad Kyle's finally treating you with respect. Way long overdue. They need to keep you on as an OFFICIAL Housewife. I've got a petition going, and I hope to get a lot of signatures. LOVE YOU!! LilyGirlxo
How you stood there while Kim was so horrible was amazing. That was truly the best way to respond to her, but I can only imagine how difficult it must have been in the moment. I really admired Paul and his response to what really seemed to be a completely terrible situation. I know that most of us have never met Taylor, but we all have had relationships with other women. Maybe it was caused by what she was going through at the time, but I can't imagine wanting someone in my life who constantly plays people against one another, and causes pain and trouble for so many. No thanks. You are awesome, hope to see you next season!!
You are my favorite! Thanks for being a real person. It is unnecessary to censor yourself. You showed real class when dealing with Kim and her issues were obvious to everyone. I am sure her poor daughter was totally embarrassed and sadly, i'm sure it wasn't the first time. Hope to see more of you!
Finally, someone who can reflect honestly. And Kim looked like a raving idiot arguing with you. And then throwing her daughter into it?
I thought you handled yourself really well with Kim. She obviously holds a grudge way too long and it is possible that your comment about her drug use hit a little to close to home and that is hwy she reacted so violently to it. But kuodus to you for handling it so well.
I have to say Kim's rants and bullying are getting old. I literally fast forward through scenes that have her in it, please take note Bravo, the show would be so much better without her. Kim's obviously jealous of Brandi, for obvious reasons. I had lost respect for both sisters during game night show, which was unfortunate because I was a huge Kyle fan. I think many people are siding with Brandi and seeing her side of it the more we see Kim go off like a lunatic and target Brandi. Whether Brandi is an angel or not, keep talking Kim and get yourself taken off show, please Bravo. Also, it's sad enough to hear about bullying on the news and it's starting so young in schools, so shamefull to see it in a group of adult women... but the reality is it's more common than it should be at all ages.
Well Done Brandi for being the bigger person when confronting Kim. Unfortunately, Kim is the one with problem, not you and the fans will see that. You're doing the right thing to try and make amends and if she's not willing to come to the party, then she'll probably end up destroying herself. Once again, good job. Luv Wagga Man xox
Just want to say that I think you looked radiant in your dress and that you handled your altercation with Kim with aplomb. Her attitude toward you clearly has nothing to do with you. As my grandmother once said, "Sometimes in life, you must allow yourself to be used as a channel, but NEVER a receptacle" Hopefully Kim will work out her issues. As for you..... just keep on keepin on!!!
Hugs from the trendy east side areas of LA!
What a kind and sensitive blog. I have a newfound and genuine respect for you. I have really started to like you so much. Thanks for keeping things positive!
Brandi, YOU ROCK GIRL!!!! the entire fight with you and Kim I just kept cheering you on and applauding you!! You handled it like a REAL lady!!!! I don't give a f*** (hehe) if you drop "f" bombs you are a hundred times classier than Kim will ever be! hahaha
BRAVO PLEASE POST! ( I'm tired of writing and then they don't get posted)
Brandi you have more class (I don't care how many times you drop the F-bomb) in your little toe toenail than the majority of these women put together. I think you handled the "kim situation" perfectly and faaaar better than I would have thats for sure. Just keep doing you missy and leave the others to self-destruct.
Brandi, you handled Kim with kid gloves, she needed it. Your right (as you now know that Kim is in Recovery) Kim is an substance abuser and needs help. I love you on this show. You need to replace kim so that she can work on herself.
Brandi, I thought you did an excellent job of handling Kim. She was rude, way out of line and borderline insane. What she was saying to you was way out of context to what actually went on. Strange. The fight was completely and utterly hers and Kyle's fault. They started trouble with you for absolutely no reason and Kim took it way beyond. She should be apologizing but apparently can't see that. Maybe rehab will help her realize right from wrong. I bet your friend Jennifer felt like she was back on celebrity rehab. She did a good job of not getting involved. You can tell she is used to this type of behavior! Anyhow, it is refreshing to see you on the show!
I feel as if you set the perfect example on how you handled the run in with Kim. It definitely takes a much stronger person to be mature vs speaking your mind and blowing up on someone, as hard as it may be to hold back lol. Plus it must be nice to sit back and see her embarass herself on national television lol.
I think you handled the situation with Kim beautifully. You are too nice for these self-involved women. You realized what a nut-job Kim was and let it go. Good for you.
Brandi You may have a mouth like a trucker, but your truthful in your actions. Kim is unbelievable, she has a foul mouth and a condescending attitude "Saying such a pretty girl" and you talk like a truck driver? She is sooooo off her rocker and it is so apparent that she has major issues whether it is substance abuse with prescription drugs combined with booze... I truly think Kim was pampered in her early years as an actress and has a hard time facing reality today. You keep both feet firm on the ground and keep your head held high. Your a class act foul mouth and all. Kim is just a mess and the producers should drop her, she isn't even a Beverly Hills housewife she just wishes... POOR KIM...
