Thanks for all the messages about my absence this week from Paul's beauty party. Yes, they were kind enough to invite me to the event and Paul's an amazing surgeon, but I have been loyal to my beauty doctor for more than 10 years, so I decided not to participate. When something is as important as your body, face, and skin, it's important to develop a relationship with whichever doctor you choose. I am always of the mindset that less is more (not that Paul isn't), so I chose to stay loyal to my doc.
I was relieved that viewers were finally given an answer as to what's been going on with Kim. Leave it to Paul to get to the bottom of a situation.
I think Kim and Kyles current realtionship came from years and years of Kim having her heart broken and having to raise her 4 kids on her own without much financial support and Kyle having to go through her life traumas with her each time. Kyle loves her sister and feels guilty that she has such a wonderful marriage and wants to makes sure Kim is happy too. When Kim told her she was moving in with her boyfriend I think Kyle was upset because she was afraid this man was going to end up hurting her sister too and she would have to be there again to pick up the pieces. Kim resents Kyle for being so judgmental and second guessing her decisions. I wonder where the third sister,Kathy, comes into play as far as Kim is concerned?
Taylor has an issue with Lisa because she knows Lisa can see through her fakeness! (But I still like Taylor more.)
Hi Brandi, Welcome!! I don't think these other ladies are making it very easy for you to join their little group. You'll have to forgive my memory if I'm wrong but, I think your first interaction with them was when Kyle was making fun of your shoes etc. while in ear shot of you. Hmmm, she knows she's going to be working with you, why would she want to start off that way? The way the Richards sisters treated you at game night was horrible. Hiding your crutches was the worst for me....we're talking 10 year old stuff. I have a lot of parties/game nights at my house and I have NEVER, EVER, seen anyone use the bathroom that much. Kyle going with her every time was telling too. What was she going to do, help put her mascara on? She was making sure Kim wasn't doing anything illegal or whatever. So, she obviously thinks there is something going on. Why didn't Kim just come out with it a long time ago and say she is having trouble adjusting her medications? A lot of problems would have been avoided. I don't blame you for thinking what you did but, you shouldn't have said that about meth. But, I also get that you were upset. Dana wasn't especially nice to you either with the Pam remark. I am glad Kyle called and apologized on Andy's show. At least you got that!!
Just love you. So glad you were added and I hope we get to see much more of you!! Steer clear of Taylor, she seems to always be stirring teh pot.
Brandi.... You would think as dramatic as your personal life has been that you would be the last to be critical of others!!! Why do you care so much about Kyle and Kim?? Plus, Taylor has been through the ringer!!! Don't bring her up!! Doesn't help your image!
Honestly you have not really been one of my favorites ...however, what you said about the issue with Taylor and Lisa ...you are dead on with that statement...FYI ...I'll tell you what the problem is ...jealousy...Taylor is sooo jealous of Lisa. You are now becoming one of my favorites on the show and honestly I never thought I'd say that. Brandi, I hope your here to stay.
I get you! I really like you, a lot. I think you are a good person with good intentions. I like that you say what you think. Everyone else is thinking it too! Be careful who you trust! Watch your back. I think you have learned that in the world you live in anyway. Be encouraged. There are a lot of people who think you are pretty cool.
Don't even try to understand them I think that might be impossible but I just wanted to tell you that I think you are absolutely beautiful. Soooo don't let them get to you and maybe just maybe you don't think it is worth your time to learn to swim with the sharks!
I LOVE YOU. You are so real and refreshing to watch. These ladies are hilarious to watch. You were screwed by your ex. They don't really get that. Keep your chin up B. You have what every girl wants. :) xoxoxo
Brandi, I am glad to see that you are participating in some of the activities and get togethers. I find Kim and Kyle's relationship strange too but all sisters act differently. Some are close and others don't even speak. Glad to see you are trying to make peace and please keep up the smile you are a beautiful person.
Taylor has an issue with Lisa because she knows Lisa can see through her fakeness! (But I still like Taylor more.)
Miss Brandi, "I’m tying myself in knots trying to understand these ladies!" Very funny, I love how honest and some what lost your blogs are
You owe Kim an apology for what you said about the drugs. As for Kim and Kyles relationship it's none of your business. Leave Taylor alone. You are new and don't understand there relationships or there friendships yet. Just get off the show already.
Brandi: I am not quite sure what I like better....seeing you on the show or your blog posts. Your thoughts and how you express them (except of course when agitated and the f-bomb comes flying!) is quite good, and thank you for sharing them. This viewer also hopes you are to become a regular on this show. Your presence is most definitely needed, and appreciated! And I hope the next time someone gangs up on you, or just pisses you off, take a moment and just pee on their lawn.
Ouch... An earlier post from California was a little rough! Ignore the haters. From what I have read on here you have the support of most all of the fans .... And do not owe anyone else an apology. Maybe try to start over next time you see Kim but the majority of the fans love you just the way you are!!
The ladies were not welcoming and a bit catty right off the bat. Kim was not a part of that first night or the BBQ that followed but I think you went into game night already uncomfortable and Kim was an easy target for you. She was not very nice or mature to say "I don't like her and don't want to be on her team." Granted, I will give you that, however, you were looking for a reason to snap at someone. You were already mad at Kyle from the first encounter and the fight was really between the 2 of you. To call anyone a drug addict which is what you did that night was completely uncalled for and low class. Weigh the 2 comments (Kim's to you and yours to hers) not even in the same ballpark. To say it in front of a bunch of people was also extremely not something a person should do. You were itching to get in a few digs. You had NO right. After calling Kim a druggie you have no right to expect to know any personal history between these 2 sisters.
Kim OBVIOUSLY has not had the most easygoing life and does not cope with her emotions well. (medication) Does it make you feel better that Paul helped explain Kims' unusual behavior??? It sure doesn't excuse yours, medication free person that you are. Have you ever apologized for your comments and meant it??? I don't think you feel you were in the wrong (as you stated at spa day) and that I feel says ALOT about who you are.
You jumped into this group dynamic with balls to the wall and offended several people yourself. Trying to join a group that is already established is always difficult but you could have tried to learn more about them (ask about family/interests) and tell them a little about yourself. Instead you accuse someone's fiance of cheating. You are not squeaky clean.
You don't know anything about the relationship between Lisa and Taylor at this point and watched things play out just like the viewers did. You should not comment on things you were not specifically involved in.
Hope things work out with you all, but please quit playing the victim cause you give as good as you get.
You're so right. I don't understand their relationship, and I actually don't care anymore. This year it's become clear that they are two of the mot self involved people in reality tv land. Nobody will say it, maybe because of what happened with Russell, but it's true: Taylor is a scam artist, creepy, and so jealous of everything LIsa is and has that I'm surprised she hasn't turned green yet.I suppose she'll settle for ruining Lisa's relationship w/Kyle, which actually isn't much of a loss. I think you and Lisa actually could be friends, since you are both so frank and don't have time for bs. Love watching you!
I'm happy to hear that Kim isn't abusing drugs or alcohol. I really was starting to feel a bit worried for her.
Hi Brandi, I'm a huge fan of the RHOBH and think you are a fab edition to the show. You appear to be more 'down to earth' like someone who could be from my town. I love Kyle and Kim but I think they feel threatened by you. That might explain some of their bullying behavior. Here's a few reasons wy they may feel threatened; You are younger. Especially in hollywoood, youth is envied. And thinner too!
You are beautiful. Kyle was the standout beauty of season 1. You could challenge that in her eyes.
You are interresting. If your stories are more interesting then theirs maybe you will edge them out of airtime.
Kim seems to have enough of her own issues to deal with so I think she just does not want to deal with you at all. Kyle seems to be more concerned with appearances and being the darling of RHOBH. These are just my opinions as a viewer and fan of the show. I hope you liked my insights! Best of luck to you all.
You rock and your real and honest. I think thats what the other ladies don't like about you. Keep living your life and im sure you have plenty good karma coming your way.
I can't believe that I'm saying this but....You're become my favorite!! You're real, you're honest and I love that you swear! I feel like you and I would be friends and I don't think I've EVER thought that about ANY of the other housewives of any city before!!
FWIW, Eddie C deserves an ugly has been like Leanne Rimes! She's a freakin' BEAST! He gave up his family for HER??? He wasn't thinking with his big head, that's for sure. What he sees in her is beyond anything I can see....UGH! You're sooooo much better off without a man like him!
Brandi, I love you! You are a beautiful young lady and were treated very badly by Kyle and Kim. As far as I'm concerned they're both bullies. I'd love to pose a question to both of them...would they want two sisters treating their precious children the way they treated you? I don't think so? They made a joke of themselves on national television and I now have not faith nor interest in either one of them. I always thought Kyle was classy but not after that episode. Let's face it, Kim has a serious drug issue which isn't our business but when you put yourself in the public eye makes it others business. Stay the way you are...lovely, classy and poised. I love the fact that you stand up for yourself and call a spade a spade! Good Luck and never stoop to their level because it's gotten pretty low. Warmest regards, Betsy
Brandi, I think Paul said it best, only in so many words:
You are the cat's meow. You're younger and possibly prettier and that's why I think Kim and Kyle are not so much jealous of you, but threatened.
I also saw you on Wendy Williams, and I love how you say what you mean, and mean what you say!
I am def a fan of yours!
And me just say, I don't think you owe Kim an apology whatsoever. It has been apparent to all of us for a while that Kim has some sort of substance abuse problem. If her own sister can say that to her, why was it a crime when you insinuated that?
Kim needs to give you an apology, for saying she didn't want you on her team at game night and that she didn't like you, yet she didn't even know you. You did not deserve to passed judgement on just because what they may have heard about you through the grapevine.
YOU ARE AWESOME!!! The most sane housewife there. I don't get Kyle and Kim at all. They are classless and the way they acted towards you is TRASHY! You are a class-act. Team Brandi all the way!
Please don't pay attention to the haters. You have the right to have your opinion about Kim and Kyle. Kim owes you an apology. Maybe after that you can give her one.
You are very beautiful.
You have seriously got to stop saying negative things about your appearance! YOU ARE PERFECT! You never look fat, like ALONE like a SAUSAGE!? Come on! What you must think of others if youre not gorgeous and perfectly thin then who is?! Seriously, stop, go look in a mirror and OPEN YOUR EYES! Thanks! Rant over.
I do not think she owes Kim a apology, that women is mixing and popping pills and who knows what else, so she is high on something or just not thinking smart, never mix drugs or drink! If she has all these meds and should not be taking one with the other then either her doctor needs to find another job or she has other doctors she is seeing to get these drugs.
hope to see more of you brandi. I thought the whole pychic experience was a "wackadoo" (to use Kyles words) event. It is calling up the dead for Christ (pun intended) sake! It not having the girls over for tea.... or how about the OC Christian housewife inviting the girls over for a spiritual revival. Who is the wakadoo now? Love you daddy!
This is how I see the whole Kim and Kyle dynamic. If you go to the Internet Movie Data Base, you will see that as children Kyle worked a little and Kim worked non-stop. Kyle had a "real" life and Kim did not. I think it is fairly obvious, because their mother managed them, that Kim was the primary breadwinner of that family. Now Kyle feels guilty that she has the fabulous house, lots of money, and a seriously gorgeous husband. Kim's childhood was sacrificed but Kyle received the benefit. Kim was the goose but Kyle got the golden egg, so to speak. Kyle truly loves her sister and wants her to have the same kind of life that she enjoys. Kim grew up on back lots and has made a succession of very poor decisions as an adult because part of being a kid is learning how to be a real adult and she only knows how to be the Disney version. She suffers from anxiety and relies on medication. She is skin and bones. Both Kim and Kyle talk about how wonderful it was to be a kid in show business and how much fun it was, but you notice not one of their own children is a performer. That speaks volumes for what they really think.
Brandi you are right on!! I totally agree with you, keep up the good work, love you in this show!!

Hey B! Loved seeing you put in a positive situation on the show ... they need to give you more of those. I know everyone is so 'let's feel sorry for kim because we thought she was doing illegal drugs' ... well, guess what? If you abuse prescription drugs it's the same freakin thing. The drugs she named - the cocktail - is pretty beign and standard. When that woman staggered out the door to her car on game night, I was shocked. Since she, her own words, hadn't slept in seven days, couldn't hear and couldn't see, and she was allowed to leave and drive??? I just don't get it. Kim started a chitstorm with her obvious problem and they are just trying to explain it away ... Not only game night but her little outtakes they play of her in her fufu bow blouse ... I would think fans of the show would be smarter than to just take her explanation at face value. Addicts and abusers LIE - that's what they do! Anyway ... I am glad things are better for you and don't let these women tie you in knots cause it might give you wrinkles. Think about that! Huggs Hon and hope all is well.
Let me explain it to you. Kyle was crying about Kim's new boyfriend, because Kyle is ACTING. Kyle is determined to be the center of attention in every situation. This was her way of making this all about Kyle. Taylor is anti-Lisa because she is jealous of Lisa. Lisa has everything that Taylor doesn't have. She has a solid marriage, she has successfully raised two children to adulthood, she has a mansion, she has successful businesses, she even has a really cute dog. Lisa and Kyle used to be best friends and Taylor might have a thing for Kyle. Last season she came between Kyle and Kim - not surprisingly Kyle sided with Taylor. This season she is trying to come between Kyle and Lisa. Kyle, of course, is being disloyal to Lisa just like when she was disloyal to her own sister last season. Also, I can't understand how Kyle can be so sensitive about a comment you made about Kim when SHE SCREAMED INTO THE MICROPHONES last year and exposed her poor sister as an alcoholic for all of the world to hear. She didn't have a problem with that AT ALL. She still has never fully apologized for betraying her sister. She called in to apologize to you when you were on What the Hell Just Happened with Andy Cohen, strictly to appease the RHOBH fans. Again, it was all about Kyle. It was YOUR TIME on the show, but of course, she had to insinuate herself into your moment to steal some of your thunder.
It is clear that Kyle's problem with you started because of her so called "faithfullness" to Lisa due to your friendship with Cedrick. As you know Cedrick supposibly screwed Lisa over so that is where it all began. Very highschool if you ask me which explains why they would act the way they did; There are many highschool students who watch the show!!!! Brandi, just play your part and dont take any of their acts personal =)
Brandi: The way you have been treated on this show is unacceptable. I can only imagine that the reason you continue to interact with these people is contractual with Bravo TV. Why be "friends" with these losers if not. The Richard's girls are unbelievably trailer trash in their behavior. They are a pair of has beens. Associate yourself with real people- not hilton add ons. Really? Look where they live. Cheesy ranchers? Kyle house has no furniture yet she has someone coming to do her hair and makeup for parties. How fake and pompous can they be?
A question for hulali, If kim had her heart broken and spent years and years raising her 4 children, where did the baby she was breast feeding last season come from...I think Kim is just a flake and has spent most of her time running around dating and lookings for her perfect man to come along...Her kids vary in age by quite a lot...I would really love to know if there is one father involved or just how many fathers there are...
Thank God for the voice of reason, Brandi! You and Adriane are my favorite-real and straight to the point.
I swear, since Bethanny left - you are the only 'housewife' on any of the shows that makes any sense to me. God bless you!
I hope good things come your way. Love the way you've handle every situation you've encountered with this group of ladies. Keep doing what you're doing, I'm a fan.
You can't understand crazy!!! I don't even try to understand those people; I just watch to be entertained!
Maybe a little girl will come into your life in a way that you haven't thought of. As say, the child of a new man.
Brandi, Don't be silly, you rocked that dress on the night of the seance, even with a cast! Also,I don't think anyone can understand the relationship between Kim and Kyle, so I would'nt even try. I agree with you on the Taylor and Lisa situation too. I have no idea what Taylor's problem with Lisa is, except maybe that Taylor is a total nutjob! Steer clear of her.
You rock !! Kim and Kyle are has beens that are very jealous. Taylor needs to deflate her lips and leave Lisa alone. Lisa and Adrienne including yourslef are class acts.
