Love you Brandi. I love a girl that speaks her mind. You only say what others don't have the guts to say.
It is hard to sit around and rehash old fights and hear the same excuses once again. I guess that is what the "re" in reunion stands for "rehash."
I had absolutely no intention of fighting with Taylor. I have tried to stay out of her business this whole season because I thought nothing good could possibly come from her situation. However when she brought up my personal business, which had nothing to do with her, I fought back. I try and do the right and moral thing as often as possible, but I do have a temper and no one is perfect. I have my own opinion on the Russell/Taylor situation, but I have nothing against her personally. I honestly hope that she can find some peace in her life.
I think the Richard sisters have a hard time accepting responsibility for their actions. Excuses and placing blame seem to be their answers to most of life's problems. I mess up all the time. I misspeak and have regrets about my actions, but owning up to my wrongdoing, saying sorry, and being truly remorseful is how I roll.
I plan on playing peacemaker between Adrienne and Lisa. I think that Adrienne owes Lisa an apology, but it's not something they can't get passed. I believe on a show like this with everyone promoting different businesses, books, beautylines, restaurants, shoelines, diet drinks, etc. etc. it tends to bring the competitiveness out in the human spirit.
Looking forward to next week where Kim blames all of her problems on me.
Love you Brandi. I love a girl that speaks her mind. You only say what others don't have the guts to say.
Great job at the reunion. I will not miss Adrienne and it was in very poor taste to come to Lisa's home to announce what everyone already knew and yet another lie she drops when she said they were going to therapy. For what?........ A show? Paul has a girlfriend and Adrienne has a boyfriend. That happened very quickly especially when we all just found out about the divorce. Adrienne and Paul are so fake and we all saw it play out on National Television. By the way we were not fooled by the crying act she gave at Lisa's home. Dressed like she was going out on a date. What was more important? Being at the party or being with her kids during this time. That is why I can not feel sorry for her. She will do anything to make herself look like she is devastated over the marriage, but she was not - nor did any of her close friends leave Lisa's party to check on her. That was so fake, I really could not believe her. Maybe she should try acting.
When you first came on I thought you were trouble and I didn't like you. But I love how you are honest and up front. No one likes a fake that smiles at you and once you turn talks about you. You just lay it all out on the line in front or behind them your story stays the same and you admit anything you say. You are amazing!! You have been through a lot and you keep going. You go girl!!! Stay you and dont change who you are!
I see Brandi as contaminating so many gatherings.....she loves to play the victim....so your husband cheated........get over it. Also, her mouth puts sailors to shame.
awesome lady keep standing up for yourself against the evil Kyle and Kim and now the phony Taylor they are evil!
Thank God for you Brandi...you've brought a lightness and a sense of humor to RHOBH. Your no nonsense style is a refreshing change from the often fake vibe that comes along with the Beverly Hills housewives. You and Lisa have the cutest friendship, and I can't wait to see it grow in the new season!! Also: your son Jake peeing on Adrienne's lawn? Not a big deal. Kyle raised four girls and never had sons. She obviously doesn't know how little boys can be. I mean what did she want you to do, yank your son by the arm and yell at him in front of everyone? Give me a break...
I am so excited the shows are soon to begin and even more excited you will be joining for another season. I enjoyed you so very much and absolutely love how you stand your ground which is alittle hard to do for some when it comes to Kyle. So my hat is off to you kiddo. Stay yourself and the show will be another great season. I am certain Kyle is just so jealous reading all the great comments from your many many fans so I guess you better get ready for her. So wish Camile would return as you and Camile make a great pair. The two of you made the show what it was. Love you..xoxo
Hi, I live in Sweden and we are some episodes behind here. but it is strange how adult womens like the siters beave like children, they have to clean up their own mess first.....Kyle is hard like ice - Kim is a clown - so go your own way like you use to, do not make any more apologies cause when they said they did not want you in their team on the gamenight it was like highschool....., and the rest just sitting there like zombies.....too much. Stick to Adrienne - she is cool Good Luck
You are such a refreshing change to the show, you are the most natural of them all
and have a great sense of humor! Stay real!
I went back and watched the DVR and you giving the viewers a tour of your home. Loved the openness of it! It may be one of the,"smaller ones", but it is by far the most inviting of all of them.
You WERE out of line talking about Kim like you did at the game night, but you were also ganged up on by Kim and Kyle and treated badly and as though you were not even there. Kim clearly said she did not want you on her team...we all heard it. Thankfully, you and Kyle have both moved past this and worked things out. Forgiveness is a powerful thing. I thought Kim was out of line when you tried to apologize and she shook her finger in your face. You did make the effort, at least. Forgiveness takes a HUGE weight off your shoulders. You say things too soon sometimes and then have to eat your words, but you do at least own up to your mistakes. My biggest complaint about you is that you need to watch your language more. You seem very down to earth and that is a good thing. I also love the fact that you do your own housework and take care of your kids yourself.
Brandi--you're the sassy BOMB and everyone loves you! You're a gorgeous girl with a supermodel figure. . .my advice-->don't call yourself a slut or degrading names. . .give yourself a little more credit, girl! Awesome that you stand up for yourself and call bull**** on what needs to be called out! And don't let trainwreck Taylor get under your skin--go write your OWN book about overcoming surprise adversity--whether it comes from a cheating husband, or sniper attacks about your precious children from a bunch of spoiled Beverly Hills brats! Love seeing you and Lisa forging a nice friendship and also great that you and LeeAnn R seem to at least be civil--that speaks volumes about how cool you are. Remember, you're the youngest and the hottest so you're always going to be a target (just keep laughing them off!!)... xxoo
P.S. So glad you're back for another season. If you weren't coming back, I am not too sure I would be either. You and Lisa....witty, good humoured and actually look like fun.
Absolutely adore you! I am surprised you didn't swing your crutch across kyle's head when they were carrying on like a bunch of spoilt elementary school girls. I don't know if I would have held off as long as you did, good job.
Don't let them get a hold of you. I think it comes down to jealousy. Sad at that age, but true. You're divine.Absolutely divine in every possible way.
Brandi, I absolutely adore you! You are such a wonderful addition to the program and really hope that Bravo adds you permanently. You have a great sense of humour and I'm surprised that some of the other women stooped so low as to take you literally to try and use your humour against you. Luckily, the viewers have brains and can see through the bitchy behaviour. As for Dana, I think she should have spent the 25K on liposuction, so she could fit into your size bikini and she would perhaps feel less jealous. You don't come across as slutty and Kyle is jaded (probably had a few sips of her sisters cool-aid.) You are a very rare type of woman who can pull off wearing such small things, and power to you! I hope you find love and great friendship (esp in Lisa). The other women like Taylor and Kyle deserve each other as they are disingenuous wannabes who never made it to the bigtime. Come back next season!!
I cannot believe how much abuse Taylor is getting in here, you women really are mean to each other! I think she has handled a horrific situation the best she could. U are just trailertrash. Looking forward to seeing u f*** up ur life even more next season
CONGRATS!!!! I am so glad it's official that you are a house wife, You and Lisa bring so much humor and realness to the cast. Time to think of a new catch phrase so I hope they post this... It's far too many characters for twitter. Catch phrases: Brandi "I'm a single housewife- Why make one man miserable when u can make so many men happy?" OR - "let the haters hate they only trip themselves up, Kyle tripped so much she is on my crutches this season" Kyle - "Others have class but I have claws and I am not afraid to use them. Even with my crutches" Lisa - "Women who are cheekier and pinker are often met with hostility and jealousy" Adrienne – "I don’t need to sell stories to the press, I have my chef do it ". Giggy - I like it – Ruff , But... I avoid mean chefs - he's too Ruff Taylor - "I still have my Voice and I am not afraid to bash Brandi every chance I get and OK sometimes Lisa. Oh... and I empower women". Kim- (Take number 35) "I'm um a going to open a restaurant next to SUR and call It SLUR" "Ha Ha Ha" Yolanda – "I am not just another pretty face, I also married well "
All in fun... I predict a great season!
Glad to see that you're coming back to face down your demons, so to speak ;)
I was sorry to see Camille go, but glad to see the truth finally come out about the "Child-Star Bully Twins" before she left :)
I don't watch a lot of Reality TV, for exactly that reason - it glorifies bullying, alliance-making and backstabbing, and then we wonder why bullying is a growing epidemic in this country, in our schools and workplaces.
I began watching this show last year, just to see how the other half lived, but stopped watching for a bit because I couldn't believe that Kyle got away with her Mean Girl stuff, even last year, with Camille.
I'm not condoning your handling of it, but that's what bullying creates - pick at someone until they blow, then cry wolf and play the victim, right?
And as much as they try to find reasons to justify their treatment of you (in reverse?), they can't - and anyone with a brain can see that - it was just because you were new, attractive and they're terrified you'll take the spotlight away from them ;)
You're situation and Camille's validated my own. No, I didn't threaten to kill anyone in the heat of the moment or host a party and bully back, but I feel ya just the same, and unfortunately at the time, blamed myself.
Sure, you've got issues - but so do they. Don't worry, those of us with a brain can see it - objectively and fairly.
Keep on putting the "real" in Reality TV.
Oh, and one more thing - Camille was able to rise above and give the benefit of the doubt to them where she could this year - think about carrying on that legacy for her, eh?
Don't let Hollywood steal your joy,
I don't know who your ex-husband is. I asked my kids, and they thought he might have been in "some show". Obviously, not a household name. Sorry, I know you say he's kinda' D-list, and I'd have to agree. His wife? I remember her being a big stand out at, like, thirteen for singing country hits, but...not my thing. I've seen her in the Enquirer and my thoughts were, "Hope she can still sing, she sure ain't going to make it on her looks." The article went on to say that everyone she's ever known has been, basically, freeloading off of her. They thought her star would continue to rise, not dead end in bad Lifetime movies. Your hubby hitched his star to a flailing starlet. She'll pop out one kid, just to prove a point, and divorce him in 2014. I'd lay odds on it.
Brandi, I think that you, and your potty mouth, are great! You showed such strength to stand up to those bullies. A great role model. Well done! They will get what they deserve, all bullies are cowards!!
Glad you are on the show, clean up the potty mouth just a little and keep doing everything else you do now, I am sure the HW think it's "their" show but only as long as the fans want them. It is now YOUR show too and judging from the comments the others should be worried.
Easily the best on the show. You've got a good, fun attitude, and it's too bad these ladies don't get it! I guess you're not really a 'housewife', but who cares. You're gorgeous and hilarious, these ladies need to get over themselves. You could be snotty and full of yourself but you don't come across that way. You just try to have a good time and be positive, and that's awesome. Just don't mix your goodies (booze and pills). lol Hope you are back next season.
I appreciate your candidness in the show, but can you tone down the intensity of some of the phrases and words you use? It's just not something a pretty woman like you should say.
I think the audience will appreciate your candidness without the expletive language that borders on vulgar. Plus you have little kids who emulate what you say and do.
I know you have a great body, but must you really flaunt that much skin? Beverly Hills image is supposed to be classy, refined, it seems you're the odd ball in the cast which is refreshing but can you clean it up some?
Seriously, your claim to fame is in your husband leaving you for someone that put out a couple of (really bad) records? Can’t figure out what it is that you do exactly.
I love your honesty and humor! we can tell u are an honest person with good morals! Clean up Beverly hills girl! Kyle will never like you she is jealous of you and will try to apologize you there wont be tension but ur a smart gal so do what you do ! love u .stay with this character ur great!
Brandi!! You are a breath of fresh air! We commend you on standing up for yourself and your babies after Kyle started talking trash about bed wetting or something. I mean how low can you go to pick on a child to hurt the mother! She can be so cruel and ugly. And Kim is just a sick nut job! Non of us can take her seriously anyways. And we all see her blame EVERYONE for her problems other then herself. And to the comment above, regarding Brandi to just leave Kim alone? Uh Hello?! Brandi never attacked Kim that Kim didnt insite on her own. The women had it coming and if Kim was getting after anyone of us including you miss high horse, you woulda defended yourself too! Making excuses for that womens behaviour is enabling her and its nice to see Brandi won't put up with it!
We also get your sense of humor and your jokes lol. Like Lisa's it enhances the show. Hope to see you back next season. You make it fun for the younger crowd to watch too! All the best Brandi to you and your Boys! :)
Hej Brandi! I think you are great! Kyle and Kim are horrible people who do not have any feelings. I myself am a Swedish mother of four who do not understand what it does to children urinating on the grass. Seriously you can not argue about let children be children! I think you seem to be an honest and echo girl who says what you tycker.Du is absolutely wonderful and proceed as you did. I can not understand how adults can behave so immature and they can be so mean to her friends. It's really low point in several of the other wives. Hope it will display more programs here in Sweden now, get sadly watching wives from Atlanta and it's not as good as your show. Sincerely, Nina
You add some much needed honesty to this show. SOMEone needs to call Taylor and Kim on their mean behavior! You go girl!
Brandi, please don’t say “kitty-cat” again. It’s not funny or cute. It’s not gonna “brand”. It’s stupid. Other than that, good luck with these ... uh ... girls!
I am so glad they have you on the show an you need to be a regular. I think it is time to make some cast changes.(I hope and pray!!!!) You, Lisa and Camille are awesome and make the show. Without you three I would have stopped watching. Kim...hmmm. She has been useless and brings nothing to the show. Sick of the her and Kyle's drama. Glad she is taking steps to improve her life, but maybe she should do this in private. I have never liked scene with her in them and normally fast forward......not good as an adult on tv. Kyle, well she is just a mean hearted, nasty, jealous woman who should also not be on the show. One cannot continue to do horrible things and behave gross and then say that is not who they are. No one is buying it anymore. She needs to go off with her sister. She is just an ugly person and I do not know why Bravo would keep her. Adrienne, I liked her last year and did not this year. What happened. She became a petty, jealous and gossipy lady. I did not expect that from her, thought she had more class and common sense than that. She better shape up next year. TAYLOR...don't know where to start. Her tv stints need to end. I, like kennedy grew up in an abusive home and do understand the mentality of an abused woman, but I have no respect for her. Any woman who would rather have money than protect her daughter i just dispicable! Broavo should not allow her to stay on the show and condone her behavior. Now she is giving advice and chiming in on people who are none of her business. Can't take it! My mom was Taylor in some ways and if you weigh you money against your child and money wins....shame on you. She is so full of it, I cannot take it and I hope her minute in the spotlight ends soon because what she does not realize is she is NO ROLE MODEL! (not to her child or the wemon she tells how they can have a life like she does at the shelter....really! Come back to reality Taylor! I pity you and if Brovo has any responsibility at all they will dump her.
Brandi, you did not do anything wrong... Kyle and Kim purposely made you feel left out and u had to sit there listening to Kim say "i dont want her on my team" while Kyle laughed with her as Kim said that out loud in your presence. They started it. They acted like they were the mean girls in high school who always bully people. Bullying is not ok in school and it is not ok over the internet and its not ok in the real world. It is never ok. ur reaction to them was a defense mechanism coz they were making u feel uncomfortable and they were stepping on ur ego. I just wanted to say that i feel you and i understand you so dont feel that its ur fault (even if the girls on the show were saying its ur fault that the drama commenced that night) because the world who watched the show are definitely on ur side with this one. Shame on Kyle. I really really liked her in the first season. She really disappointed me in the second season. She was such a bully and I hate bullys. From the moment u were introduced in Kyle's charity, she was already judging u and talking behind ur back. She never gave u a chance from the very beginning. and in Addriene's childrens party, she was so aloof to you. Typical bully. With Kim im not surprised... she was always a wreck even in the first season.
By the way, I think that Brandi already doesn't care if Adrienne thinks that she cares more about what Lisa thinks, & Brandi is becoming better friends with Lisa, if the reunion show was for real!
KatieLeigh, are you kidding me? Let Taylor heal? How about she lets Russel'sl other children and parents heal. I usually have enormous sympathy for anyone going through ANYTHING, but after Taylor wrote that book immediately, she showed the world what she is-greedy, cruel, manipulative and heartless. She may be packaged in a pretty package, but what's underneath is completely different. How dare you say don't be destructive regarding Taylor. How dare you KatieLeigh? Taylor has been hugely destructive to many people incluiding little children and at the end of the day, all that matters is that she gets to stay in Beverly Hills and on this show. What is wrong with you attacking Brandi for defending herself? What, because Taylor's husband killed himself, no one can criticize her, but she can write whatever she wants about a man who still has children alive? - mind you she wrote all of their private, behind the door, circumstances between himself and her that I'm sure he never thought his WIFE, his partner would spill to the nation for money. She is absolutely emotionally ruthless and Russell's family will never be able to rest in peace with their son because of her. All for money and attention....How dare you say she's hands off any criticism after all she has done....Unforgiveable. She needs to leave this show--she went too far, even for reality TV.
First off, I am extremely proud and have much respect for Taylor's ability to reach past the horrible events in her life and share her experience with the world. As a woman previously involved in a relationship involving domestic abuse, I would have never had the courage to share that humiliation with the world. It's not what happens in life that matters, but how you deal with it. Taylor could be sitting in a dark room, feeling sorry for herself, playing the victim and crying all day long. However, she is not. She is turning her situation into something positive that can help other women, like me. I think it is a positive way to make her own income and be independent. You should commend her on her strength and intelligence. Kim has a disease and throughout the season has been a broken person. I don't think she should be blaming you for her actions. However, you and Kim are not on an even playing field and she has not had your stability and self confidence. Leave her alone and let her heal. She is trying to get help and get better, admitting she hasn't been living her life the way she should. Make a point to be supportive and if you can't be that, don't be destructive. Adrienne and Lisa should be capable of fixing their own relationship. Telling Adrienne to apologize to Lisa might make Adrienne feel like you are taking Lisa's side and telling Adrienne she is wrong. They need to sit down alone and discuss their own issues without a third party giving input. You will only make Adrienne feel singled out and ganged up on against Lisa and nothing will end up resolved and you might just further damage your relationship with Adrienne.
Heeeyy, do-rom 18, Brandi had repeated what Russell told her. Upon which Taylor had to brandish her own form of punishment by trying to join the crowd & embarass Brandi w/ the tire slashing incident. Russell taught his eager student well. Backfire! The mean girls immediately started trashing the younger prettier hw w/ their unique grade of bullying (and by grade i'm guessing 8th) b4 game night could even get under way. Then she reacted. Please. We can all recognize a bully. Even in the written word. I'm extremely disappointed kyle is coming back. As far as kim's desire to come back, i hope bravo & her family recognizes she's not up to it. 2 seasons = 2 stints in rehab. I dont think any of us wants to see a 3peat.What can we say about taylor. She should take this time to consider caring her daughter thru the tremendous loss she must be feeling, Say what you want about Russell, he was still her daddy. But we kinda know fame & money are probably more important to her. Adrienne was my fave last year. This year idk what happened to her. She cant laugh at herself at all. She also failed to impress many other viewers.The fans have spoken loudly and clearly. Why they would bring back anyone on the right couch is beyond me. I will tune in next year. Lisa, Brandi & i hope Camille are the geese that lay the golden eggs. The rest of the gaggle lay what geese are good at laying down or dropping on our windshields!
I am just sick over the way Kim and Kyle treat you. It is disgraceful and you don't deserve it. They totally attacked you and tore you up like a pack of rabid wolves. It was sick and is unbelievable that they continue to do it. It makes them look really desperate and trashy, and they aren't worth your time. Stand your ground and don't let them try to play the queen bees. They are the kind of women who haven't done anything with their lives (except get married and have kids) and so they get stuck in high-school patterns. You are better than that.
I still can't believe Kim tried to blame you for the embarrassment her family felt after the show. What in the world? She needs to look in the mirror and stop trying to blame you for a situation she created herself.
"Kim didn't do any such thing. She took responsibility for her problems and behaviour". I quoted this part from StacyBan.
Um, not true! If Kim is really doing the 12 step program one of them says to tell people that you had conflicts with that you're sorry and to forgive, she forgot to mention that part, which leads me to believe she wasn't into the rehab like she wants people to believe.
No to mention she was still high when she did the interview with Andy, anyone with a brain had to see that!!!
Brandi, I like you, a lot! You bring new blood to the show and you don't ki@@ anyones behind.
Hope you come back and show the "Richard sisters" how it's done and not to be so fake. Which I doubt it'll do any good!
BRANDI! Everyone else has already written it a million times- LOVE you and having you on this show. You and Lisa gravitate to each other because you are very equal in class, perception to your surroundings and bottom line, you're both "good eggs." We viewers see that and that's why you two have seemed to come together almost like war buddies. You survived the evil sisters and Taylor's horrific attention seeking manipulation. Taylor needs to be removed from this show. I feel bad for her abuse, I always believed her and I backed her decision to tell the world about it. However when she wrote that sick, tell-all book under the ruse of helping other battered women, I about threw up. Please, how stupid does she think we are? All Taylor Armmstrong cares about is her Beverly Hills lifestyle, and if writing a book about her dead husband one hot minute after he died was the way to keep it then so be it. EVEN if it meant completely obliterating his other children's worlds...No wonder she and Kyle gravitate to each other. Its as it should be. She is grotesque as a human being and she needs to go for all of our sakes. Fire Taylor!!!!
My favorite housewife of all time!! The Richards sisters didn't know what hit them!! So surreal listening to Kim say that you owed her an apology, too. . . wow, that woman really does live on another planet! Bravo had better bring you back next season if they know a good thing when they see it!
Brandi I didn't read all these posts, but i think u should go after Mauricio. Kyle hates u cuz u r tall, clever and hot just like her husband. She is so jealous it's pathetic and thats why shes so mean to u. She acts like because u r single u r a skank-when u too were a victim of a different kind of emotional abuse from your ex. Let's see how she handles that feeling the little schrew! I know how u feel sister cuz I'm not half what u r, but girls r haterssssss of single cute girls and always think u r after their husbands no matter what so go for it!
Brandi, I'm starting to realize one of your biggest problems is going too far. You have received a lot of support from the viewers. So why did you feel the need to end this blog by saying "you can't wait to see next week when Kim blames everything on you"? Kim didn't do any such thing. She took responsibility for her problems and behaviour. What she holds you responsible for is you making an allegation that she was using crystal meth. And you did say that!!! It was unfounded because you didn't see this for yourself. You were mad and lashing out, but your comments hurt her daughters. Just admit that. Brandi, you're a grown women with kids of your own. Kim can not force you to say things. You did that yourself. So don't play victim and try to add to her issues. Just say, you shouldn't have said it and leave it alone. Kim really didn't have anything bad to say about you. She said she would be cordial to you, but won't ever forget these issues. That's fair. Everyone is not meant to be friends.
Brandi, You're my favorite! You're beautiful and tell it like it is! I love how you go at Taylor. Fishlips really deserves it!
I admire your freshness, beauty and more of all your honesty. I hope your teturn to the sehow next season, Just keep being yourself and ignore negative jealous people.
In the Hawaii episodes, you admitted to mixing alcohol with xanax. . . um, in light of Whitney Houston's passing, maybe you'd better seriously rethink doing that!
Brandi, I don't think you owe Kim an apology for anything, she and Kyle were completely rude to you and you told it like it was (and guess what, you were almost right, she was on drugs, prescription or not). It's difficult watching Kim blame you for 'hurting her family'; she's playing the victim to make herself feel beter. You're a badass -- and a real lady, you prove it every time I see you on camera. Keep it up!
Brandi, thank you for being the only "real person" on this show. Thank you for calling Taylor out on her book, especially since that person does not have a voice. It is sick for a person to say with on side of their mouth, "how in-love they were", and then with the other side "he broke my jaw." You are fabulous, and I am sorry for the way you were treated on that show.
Brandi, you are Dino mite! These women don't deserve o sit in the same room with you, with the exceptin of Lisa and Camille, of course. I hope they get rid of Kim and Kyle and Taylor for sure. And Dana , yuck.......
Brandi, You have many wonderful qualities and a lot to offer. You deserve to have a kiknd, honest man. However, if you want to befriend certain types of women and attract a certain type of man (someone like Ken for example) you would have to refine some of your behavior. Everyone can improve themselves without losing their spirit and basic personality. If you reign in some of your words and adjust your filter slightly, you would save yourself from some negative experiences and have all that you want. Even in jest, when you are so self-deprecating, people will treat you with less respect. You deserve better. Lisa is also very direct, but never vulgar, take a cue from her.
