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.
We love you Brandi. No one is perfect. You said it, taking responsibilities for your actions and saying you are sorry when you really are is the ticket in life.
Good things are going to come for you.
Brandi, You crack me up! I think you are funny and non-apologetic, which is refreshing. I'm really glad that you stuck up for Lisa. I think it was important that you told the other women that you have never heard her speak poorly about them. The only thing that irks me a little bit is the text situation with Kyle. Kyle is not always me favorite, but she seems nice enough. I know she had done you wrong in the past, but texting something rude about her after she invited you to a party is not very nice. I understand that it wasn't meant to go to her, but you know that stuff can always get back to the person you are talking about. I just hope you are a little more careful. Although, you did fess up to it, which was kind of funny. Anyway, you are a fun addition to the cast. Keep being you, but try to stay as positive as you can.
Love you and your honesty! You may be a little crass sometimes - but it is always the truth! I hope you're on the next season!
You are the best thing that happened to this show. Bravo please promote this delicious woman to full time Housewive and let the riff raff go (Kim and Dana).
Good luck peacemaking between those two, Lisa is terrific but it is obvious that Adrianne is not her "friend." Lisa may be better off without her. You are a great addition and very charming. Hope they keep you around!
You are so refreshing Brandi! Thank you for being who you are. I love, love, love you, Camille and Lisa. I am disappointed in Adrienne. I cannot stand Taylor, Kyle and Kim! Hope they find someone to replace them for next season. I can't wait until next season and your return to RHOBH!!!!
Love your blog comments but especially loved your comments at the reunion. You have added so much fun and sparkle to a show that had gotten very dark and tragic. Hope to see you in Season 3!
Team Brandi!! i really like you...you say what you think and no games...you are spot on about those Richards sisters...they both need some couch time...
Keep your head up Brandi. You are one of a kind and exactly what REAL women need to see. A woman standing up for herself. Forget the Richards sisters. They are so yesterday. You are true to yourself and your friends and we the viewers see that.
Stay strong, Brandi! Many of us viewers can decipher what's really going on and we are backing you in your bluntness and honesty. Kyle has turned out to be a HUGE dissapointment and you have made a good call with the Richards sisters. Taylor needs to take a break from the show... a LOOONNNG break... but, of course, there's money to be made. Stick to your true friend - Lisa.
Hope to see you next season! The Bravo Network would be very wise to keep you around. And don't worry about Kim's accusations. She has long lost credibility with the intelligent viewers.
Love you in Florida! xoxo
You OWNED that reunion! What can I say that hasn't been said before? You rock and your honesty is your best weapon. The other "couch" can't handle it. Can't wait to see you in season3. There is no way you wont be cast as a permanent housewife next season. All the haters can SUCK IT(and the Richards sisters too)!
I think you are awesome! You stay true to your word and you say it like it is! I hope you come back next season...I'm definitely going to miss watching you Monday nights!
Eek. The Kim comment a tad unnecessary, but your blog seems to be quite on point. I wouldn't bother trying to get Lisa & Adrienne together; Lisa's far too classy to be around someone who'd stoop so low.
I seriously could not love you anymore than I do. I am so glad that you have Lisa's back. You are honest, human, real, and NORMAL!
Brandi, I sure hope you return next season, you are fast becoming a favorite. Your friendship with Lisa makes me like Lisa more. Kim can try to blame you all day long but we saw her crawling on the bathroom floor, hiding in the bathroom at the party, strangely fascinated with a white flower in the middle of a conversation, etc.
Brandi, You said it all. I agree with your entire assessment of the cast of characters. Kyle actually made vapid excuses about your first meeting: "I'm afraid to meet new people." and "I was worried about Kim" (who wasn't there). She plays the "Kim Card" at every miss statement she makes. Kim blames you for all the evil in the world, even though she never gave you a fair shake. They both are immature has-beens, who are trying to get fame through the back door of a reality show. As for sniveling Taylor's comments to you: they were despicable. She yelled at you for threatening to kill Kyle at game night after Kyle again yapped about your son's pishing on the lawn. Her hissy fits continued when you questioned her motive for writing a tell all book about a man who cannot defend himself. BTW, last year, Taylor Park Trash threatened to beat up Kim. Pot meet Kettle. I appreciated how you took responsibility for your actions and your comments. You stay true to yourself. You're still fabulous and a real character... xo
Speaking of promo items, what will you be promoting next season, Brandi? Ginzu knife for tire slashing? LOL! Love your brutal honesty, you call a spade a spade.
Weak people always project onto others! One of the hardest things in life to do is admit you are wrong, so great and refreshing to see you do it... maybe they will all learn :)
Weak people always try to project onto others... one of the hardest things to do is admit I think. Its so great to see you can do it, maybe they will all learn in time!
I normally like your honesty and direct approach however this time I just thought you were being plain nasty. As far as being a "peacemaker" for Adrienne and Lisa I think you created a bigger fight for them. A true peacemaker would not have thrown Adrienne under the bus, you would have spoken to Adrienne on the side to deal with what she said about Lisa.
I have to say that until the reunion, I wasn't sure how I felt about you but now? LOVE YOU! Love the honesty and how you have Lisa's back and you call it as you see it! Keep being you and keep being REAL! You crack me up with your honesty and humor in your blogs, too!
Brandi- The last line of your blog made me bust out laughing. I was hesitant to like you in the beginning, but as Lisa has said, you are irresitible. Forsome reason knew you two would end up clicking and I am very happy I was right. Keep doing what you are doing, we all love it.
Love you Brandi! Keep those Richards sisters in check! They are ridiculous and who wouldn't have their guard up with Kim when the FIRST time meeting, she is whispering high school comments and hiding crutches. You were WAY more calm than I would have been and prob them had the roles been reversed. You are a great addition to the group and I hope to see more of you in the future!
You plan on playing peacemaker when you were the one who brought up that you'd heard from various people that Adrienne doesn't like Lisa? Good luck with that!
Brandi, I love you! You are honest, direct and you "own" your actions. I agree with you completely on all you say in your blog. Keep doing what you are doing!
Brandi, You are fantastic. I love your candor, which is hard to find in your show. Thank goodness for you, Camille, Adrienne, and Lisa. You all seem to speak the truth. I have really enjoyed wathcing you this season. You are one of my favorites!
