Brandi discusses why she wasn't afraid to take on the Richards sisters, even on one foot.

Mean Girls: Part 2!

It's official I'm traumatized! As I hobbled into game night, I had no idea that it was going to be one of the longest, most uncomfortable nights of my life. After Dana immediately let me know what designer she was wearing, I found myself one of the first to arrive along with Kyle. Given our last encounter, it's fair to say I was pretty uncomfortable. It didn't take long before the eye rolls, dirty looks, and awkward silences began. Kyle's feelings towards me were very clear and for reasons I did not know. Slowly but surely the other girls started to arrive (Thanks G-d!). I had still not met Kim at this point (neither had Dana) and as we waited for the last to ladies to arrive, Dana got the call saying Adrienne couldn't make it. My immediate reaction? Nooo! Adrienne is not only my ally, but she's also level headed and can usually take control of a situation if/when it gets out of hand.

As we waited the two-plus hours for Kim to arrive, we were sitting around having some wine (but note, there was very little food) and making uncomfortable small talk. When Kim finally arrived, the ladies all made a b-line to her and started fussing over her: fixing her hair, makeup, clothes, etc. This was my first time meeting Kim and she seemed friendly enough. She commented on my shorts (which I thought were super cute, albeit not Valentino). Once she arrived, Kim spent about 15 minutes in the bathroom and at one point Kyle joined her. By this point we'd all waited a long, long time for Kim and when she finally joined us, she was a hot mess. Even Kyle was suspicious of Kim's behavior and even took a drink of Kim's drink to make sure it was just coffee!

Game time! OK, sue me. I didn't know who Winston Churchill was (Yes, yes: England's great wartime leader. Check.). After Dana picked the teams (how coincidental: I was on a team with Kim and Kyle. Hmmm.), my teammates made it clear they were not happy with this arrangement and that they didn't like me at all. I felt totally left out and my feelings were hurt, so I told them as much. It was very childish of them to purposely go out of their way to hurt me. During our games, Kim disappeared into the bathroom on multiple occasions for long periods of time. One time, she took so long that Kyle went looking for her and was worried about what she was drinking. She even checked in with the bartender.

I thought your blog was on point. Only problem is your answering machine message is as obnoxious as the way Kim and Kyle treated you. Other than that though, you seem like a pretty stand-up woman to me.

Brandi, you know what I don't get....last season Taylor went off on Kyle's sister, what's her face, the blonde one can't even remember her name Kim and even threatened to kick her ass and was just so hatful and mean to Kyle's....but Brandi says one thing about her peculiar behavior and she sternly says to Bandi,....don't mess with my sister....oh please the woman was on crutches and going through a public divorce. Taylor is a very ugly person, and very immature. My chest clinches when watching her....Taylor does not like, Kyles' sisterKim then lisa, then camille....I think Kyle is sooo jeoulous of Brandi and Kyle is a bully....

Brandi. You're young, beautiful and classy. Everything that Kyle and Kim are not. Dana is an obvious loser. Go Brandi.

I really felt for you when I saw the episode. Ganging up on a new person to the group who is alone in the room and who has done nothing to you is petty and distasteful. You handled yourself well--first by holding your tongue then by standing up for yourself once the insults had gone on for too long and gone too far. This unpleasant exchange really changed by opinion of Kyle. Kim started this fight, you called her on her obviously impaired behavior, then people wanted to make out like you are the bad guy? Not cool. Hang in there Brandi!

It wasn't until this episode that I really saw how horrible Kyle & Kim could be. I feel like the whole thing was silly- but it most certainly didn't start with you.

I'm so proud of you for sticking up for yourself. And even for crying! It shows that not only were you mad- but you were hurting as well.

You're going through so much and still seem to handle tough stuff from the show with more class than some of the other castmates...ahem. :)

I LOVE YOU BRANDI! You are very strong willed and handled yourself very well given the situation. Stay positive and keep doing what your doing -- which is being a great mother, real and always stand up for yourself... If I could have I would have helped you. Deanna and her game night was the lamest thing I had ever seen. If I was her I would be soooo ashamed of myself. Deanna or whatever her name is, is a pathatic waste of a human being and -- everyone who watches the show saw that. You were the most real person in that house:D

I am so sorry for everything Kim, and especially Kyle is putting you through this season. And unfortunately, so far it seems this is a case of "all that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good people to do nothing". No one is sticking up for you. Adrienne is great at that but sometimes I think its tough to see that when Kyle is talking to you, it's very often a dig. But you notice it. That must REALLY REALLY hurt to repeatedly be in a room full of women whispering and giggling about you. It hurts to watch. I think everyone has experienced it and it is noooo fun. You've handled yourself very well considering what you have put up with. Obviously after being treated like an outcast all night you missed the high road that time but really that would take incredible discipline to take such abuse and not respond in kind. I hope you know there are a lot of complete strangers out there who really admire your courage, and even grace. You've gone through so much and you have the cajones to go to parties where women unite as mean girls against you party after party. You are one bad mutha ....... I salute you.

Brandi I find you so refreshing! I am a 39 year old mom with three boys and LOVE your frankness about EVERYTHING!!!! You are very realatable and a welcome addition to the RHWBH !!!! I love the fact you are so upfront and honest about your feelings; whereas so many women are catty and snarky behind one's back. Can't wait to see you on the show again!

Brandi my first thought here is you need to stop talking about it, maybe your hoping they will read your blog(maybe they will) but my God its over. I love the sisters but they were wrong and I think they watched themselves and they know. I would have liked you better if you didn't keep going on and on as if you have never acted like that towards someone in your life. I highly doubt you have always been your best and while drinking and no eating like you said. Hope you can be done now you have a lot of support so how about telling us about who you are? Good luck.

Brandi, You are my favorite addition to the show. I was not a fan of the Richards sisters to start with, but their behavior towards you proves to me that money has nothing to do with decency or class. I know that you are beyond done with game night and the ridiculous notion that you should apologize in the spa episode, but I wanted to let you know that these girls behaved worse than trailer trash and you had nothing to apologize for in the first place. Keep your chin up. I don't know why those women feel that they hold the key to some club that people would want to belong to anyways. Camille seems to be relieved that they have moved on to harassing and attempting to intimidate and humiliate you this season. Why would anyone want to be involved with women who treat others as horribly as they do? What sad, sad human beings. You seem to be the only person with a heart who is a real person, Brandi. I know that their hateful treatment towards you must be hurtful, but maybe you could try to view it as the compliment that it truly is! Good luck!

Brandi, I agree with the vast majority of viewers that Kyle and Kim could not be more out of line. You are a strong, beautiful woman and handled yourself accordingly. Those women should be ashamed of themselves.

Brandi don't lower yourself to the way Kim and Kyle act. They might as well return to high school. And, that lady from England needs to return to ENGLAND!!!! It is hard to believe that these ladies want themselves portayed the way they come across. I thought the Housewives of Atlanta were bad...............well, this show tops those ladies.

Oh, and another thing..Any women that would treat you like that and all gang up together on the new Pretty chick, that's not cool. They are not real like you.

Yeah Brandi!!

I think it's unanimous, everyone loves you!!

Hi Brandi! Good-By Kyle! Good-Bye Kim! Kyle and Kim were both out of line. They have both met their match. Kyle is the most insecured woman I have ever watched on tv.

Lisa Parker

I hated the way they treated you. It was uncalled for and so very wrong. Even if you made a comment about Kim it could have been prevented...Kim wouldn't have stood up to you if it wasn't for Kyle. I think Kyle hasn't liked you from day one, its more of a difference in personality. I think she can't handle your straight forwardness.. I hope the show gets better for you..

Oh Pleeez forget those people on here talking about youre not being Christian blah blah blah.....if they are so spiritual then why are they watching worldly TV? None of us are perfect and we all have some things that we can improve on. I believe that when you get defensive words come out of your mouth before you truly think about it. Thats something you can work on and I am sure you are trying. I think you are great because its hard to stand up to people like the Richards sisters because regardless of what anyone says we all want to feel included.

Brandi if I could have jumped through the TV screen to help you take on those mean girls I would have. It just broke my heart. You are a beautiful woman and that sometimes will immediately cause women to dislke you.....continue to stick up for yourself and keep being a great mom!

I was shocked at the behavior of the Richards Sisters!! You did very well Brandie, I hope in time you can all sort this out & make nice.

P.S. I too am a mother of 2 boys and have known one of them to be a streaker!Brandon my youngest earnd the name"lil Randy" because he wouldnt leave "Lil Randy" alone...wink wink

Brandi you were attacked out of the blue by first Kim and then Kyle. I feel that everyone else there is guilty as well for tolerating and even at times joining in. No style at all for those women. All Kyle has to do is watch the video of Kim with Adrienne on the plane....that says it all and Adrienne's husband said it!

I feel terrible that you were so ganged up on! Those women should know better! I used to like Kyle...NOT ANYMORE!!!! Stand up to them!! Dont get bullied!! I think majority of viewers are on your side, or atleast they should be. Dana is disturbing in so many ways, its so sad to watch!

You have taken the whole fan base as your own! Nice!!! Any very few negative comments on here are probably Kyle and her sister. You are a great add on to this show. I hope they keep you on. If not there is no way I will watch. Kyle talks constant crap about you not scolding your child yet I wonder does she let her children watch mommy being such a mean bully?

I thought that it was great that you stood up for yourself! Those two can be pretty intimidating. Normally I like both Kyle and Kim, but this night they acted like childish little brats. Jealous much girls?

Brandi, I am so sorry you had to go through that. It was painful to watch you be attacked the whole night. Mentioning something negative about your child was wayyyyy over the line. Those two low life sisters are jealous of you obviously. You don't owe anyone an apology. I have never seen two grown women act so classless & immature. You make one comment which was obviously right on the money. It is so clear that Kim is wacked out of her mind on drugs. Why are all these women taking Kim's side? You are a real lady with class. Those women really showed their true colors. You are owed a big apology. I wouldn't lose one minute's sleep over what a junkie thinks of me if I were you. Hang in there!!

Brandi, Sorry you had to endure that disgusting display of women at their worst. My teenage daughter and I can totally empathize. It's really hard to break into an already established social circle unless: 1) you're uglier than everyone else, and 2) they think they can use you for their personal gain. Since you're prettier than the others, there's the problem.

Brandi, I really hope you DO NOT apologize! You stood up to the bullies! Something tells me you don't have many female friends...(yes, I am implying that most women are complicit in bullying)

Brandi,

You had every right to defend yourself!! Sounds like you know where you stand and kudos to you, F-bombs and all. I would have been furious if someone brought up my children and questioned my abilities as a parent too. Those two women, especially Kyle(who will not be able to blame her actions on any kind of subtance abuse in the future) are extremely immature and stunted individuals...that's the best reason I can come up with for the behavior that was on full and hideous display in this episode. They are stuck in the the 1970's. In a child star land of make believe that they never grew out of. Be yourself, girl. Ignore the haters.

YOUR MAMA is right! I love when you said, yes, I am a sl*t...rofl I understood your psychological maneuver immediately and I use it myself. It works 100% of the time. It takes great confidence to pull it off, but you are very strong. Your boy peeing was cute and normal, no biggie. They actually learn later to pee in a toilet later, most of the time. Men still pee outside. Jealousy is all this is, I am so glad you called them all on their sh*t. Kim is definitively on speed, no doubt and probably more Meds, illegal and legal. I liked Kyle when it first aired and was disappointed to see who she really is.....btw if anyone steals/hides my crutches, I can promise you they wlll pay right then and there. You are graceful even when you curse, we all curse at times, big deal. I think you are gorgeous, girl, and a good soul. I am sorry for your divorce and pain, but happy now Eddie is gone, he is an imbecile/ageist/sob. You handled it all very well, have no regrets! Luv you are on the show, you are now the only one I like on the show. Btw..dang you have long legs, lucky you:)

Brandi, I just started watching this show and I have to say, you did NOTHING wrong. I have 2 grown sons and 3 grandsons, and what boy at one time or another hasn't done what these grown women were so stunned by. It is best not to make such a big deal of what he did. They were just over reacting. Best of luck with the show!

I'm sorry fans, but calling someone out for being on crystal meth topped the night in meanness, I just don't understand all this devotion to Brandi. IMO it was a losing situation for everyone - the fans, Brandi and the Richard sisters. This isn't the show I want to see.

I hope you're here Brandi to breathe some new life into all the housewives series. The planned get-togethers, where someone has to say something rude and offensive to start a season long argument. Why portray yourself to your children and family in such a manner that you would not accept your own children to behave. I originally started watching the shows to see certain lifestyles in different cities. Who wants to watch constant bickering, and see grown women try to use the F-bomb in as many sentences as they can. After week, after week, it loses it impact, and is not even interesting to watch, and seems scripted. How about a new concept for housewives? Living, but no meaningless verbal warfare. Anyone out there, anyone? Help!!!!!

brandi You need to be smarter then all these women. I was shocked by Kyle and disappointed by Kim. They should have know better....I felt that Kyle defended her sister, after she insulted your parenting skills. HOLD it....comparing kids to Kim...the off her rocker Kim. Kyle is crazy along with her sister...Brandi I hope you defend yourself on reunion night. Tell those sisters they had no right bring up children in an adult conversation. Kim is a big girl and needs to watch her mouth. To be honest: I was nervous about you and your attitude, but I think the Richards Sister have met not their match, but someone (Brandi) who is not going to put up with their crap. Sister-hood is a bitch!! No thanks....Brandi be quick, be nimble, and be smart...you deserve second chance! Everyone does!

I can't believe how well you behaved considering the mean spirited and downright cruel treatment you received. If any one of my children EVER treated someone like that (and they're 21, 23, 26) I would personally kick their as*!!!!!!!!!! Who taught them manners? They were being the stereotypical "mean girls" ~ I thought ladies of a certain age outgrew this petty and childish behavior! I could never be friends with people who acted that way. It truly reminded me of jr high!!! What immature/classless women they showed themselves to be. Now that being said..........you must teach your son that peeing in public isn't good behavior! And stop putting yourself down. You have to think better and talk better of yourself!!

Brandi you are a beautiful woman. Far beyond what a huge portion of us could ever be, at least physically =) But at 37, I would think that you would have learned how to deal with jealousy from insecure women in a more appropriate way. The only reason I say this is because my best friend is a beautiful girl who deals with this type of behavior constantly and never stoops to their level. Keep your chin up, but don't call names like the mean girls do. I'm assuming the whole world can tell what a fun girl you are, and your great personality shines through already. So don't engage anymore - k?

You only said some of those off-color comments because you were in a situation where grown women were trying to make you feel badly about yourself. Please do not apologize, Brandi. I'm just shocked that there hasn't been someone outspoken at these events to tell the mean girls to stop bullying you.

Brandi, I am glad you stood up to those 2 phonies. The only reason they have money is because of their mom and Kyles husband. I think the show is full of phonies. The only one I like is you and Adrienne. I agree that Kim is on something. She acts whacked out of her mind. I can't stand Kyle. She is a bully. Bravo to you.

Don't sweat those 2 Brandi. Just remember that when an alpha feels threatened they become aggressive and dominant to assert their position. Looks to me like you have challenged the pack leader (Kyle) and she's trying to hold her ground. Grown women behaving like 14 year old girls...gosh they must be SO proud of the example they set for their daughters.

Rene2011

I feel bad for you and I don't understand why you are on this show. Kyle and Kim Richards are scary, mean-tempered and hypocritical women. They criticize your mothering skills at the party because you simply laughed off your son peeing on the grass...but they verbally attack each other and play the mean girls with everyone else...Kyle and Kim need to look in the mirror and reflect on their own mothering skills. Ironically, these two women only have daughters...what sad role models they are. Chin up Brandi...you are fine...they are not!

KymmLisa

Brandi, You hit the nail right on the head amd I'm so sick of Bravo and the rest of the cast all dancing around Kim's cocaine problem, and Kyle acting like her little mommy and protecting her when all she's doing is enabling her. Everytime you see that girl she's wasted and frankly until you came on board I was going to stop watching the Beverly Hills Housewives. I used to be an addict and the bathroom was my haven. There's no way in hell, someone drinking coffee all night gets that wasted and has to pee alone, or have her sister escort her to the bathroom., just to make sure she stays clean. And she's so skinny, she screams tweaker! You get them! As for Kyle she's a wanna be anyway! They all know, but if they were true friends they'd try to help, not ignore it and say it's none of my business! Screw that! Thanks for finally speaking up to the coke whore!

Brandi, If you want to join the group, and I have no clue as to why anyone would, I guess this is a kind of hazing! If you really want to have a little fun with Kyle and Kim, apologize to both of them, then stand back and watch their jaws hit the ground. Seriously, one up the bullies, and be the better person here.

i was screaming at my tv and wishing i could have been there to go nose to nose with those two with you. not that you needed anyone you did just fine, but they need to be put in thier place for sure.and watch out for lisa she is the gas on all the fires, she is the one that eggs each fight on. you seem very real and afterall it is called REAL housewives. good luck.

Go Brandi, they are just so jealous of you, it showed the first time Kyle laid eyes on you when you walked into the room. You held your grace & saw what you saw, we saw it too, that is why Kyle kept running after Kim, she knew she was doing something, not sure what she was snipping on, but snipping on something, I confirm I believe she was on something and it was not stress. I don't even know how you sat still after Kim's comment and then the laughter from childlike Klye. She is so jealous of you it is unbelievable. Just know this, before you it was Camille, then Kim. Kyle was jealous of Camille too. Now she's after you. Hold strong and show her you are a classy woman. No more calling yourself the names you have been calling yourself. You have already been through a lot, do not let Kyle BULLY you. Glad to see fresh air on the show. Oh and Dana stay away from her.

Hi Brandi, you're a nice addition to the show, you're real.

It was hard watching the show and what Kyle did to you, let it roll of your back, she is a witch to everyone except her sister. Here's what I think and have from the minute you came on, she's so jealous of you and her hubby, I saw that coming a mile away the day of the BBQ, when he got there she couldn't get to his side fast enough and I also saw him in your background smiling at something you said, I'll have to go back and re watch.

I really like Camille but she should have stayed put and not run to Kim like she did. Hang in there!! :)

Natale

Don't you dare apologize to Kyle! The world saw the "mean sisters" true colors and I think it's an awful shame to see this type of behavior from a grown woman. Stand your ground but don't stoop to their level again. Older women never like to see a younger, prettier woman take the stage...remember that.

Brandi, I never thought I'd give a comment on any reality shows. I used to like Kyle but after watching last nights episode, it is clear to me that her true colors came out. She showed a very childish and disgusting attitude, granted the show is somewhat scripted, it was still a poor attitude on her part. Clearly she is intimidated because you are young, tall and pretty. Did you see her and Kim's wrinkles? Be strong, be tough, be civil and conduct yourself with utmost dignity and grace!!!! Good luck kid!
