Thank You For Being a Friend

Camille thanks Dedra for her support -- even if it might have come at the wrong time.

Before the party I was really looking forward to spending time with the girls. Brandi had wanted to get all of us together for a nice girls' night. I was excited about getting to know Brandi and her friends better. I didn't anticipate any major conflict with seeing Taylor at the party. Even though I wasn't sure how she was going to react, enough time had gone by that I thought we could bury the hatchet.

Obviously, this episode was very difficult to view. Watching Taylor get so emotional was difficult. I felt so bad for her. She was in a lot of pain, and I didn't realize at the time the severity of her situation.

That evening was especially challenging because Taylor had obviously distanced herself from me. As I saw her pain, I empathized with her because I had gone through so much pain myself over the last year. I wanted to help, but I couldn't because she put a wall between us. It hurt that she accused me of something happening with her situation at home, but harder still was seeing Taylor in that emotional state. At that point, what was I to do? Obviously I wanted to reach out to help her, but I'm being accused of causing problems in her life. I felt that she was taking a lot of her own personal frustrations out on me. Knowing that a friend is hurting is bad enough, but I was unable to reach out and help because of that wall Taylor put between us.

Speaking of friends, Dedra got involved even though I would never ask her or willingly put her in any position to do so. When Dedra saw everything that was going on she just wanted to help. She is my best friend. She was there for me with the situation with Taylor and has been with me through everything with my divorce and my ongoing custody battle. Dedra knew in her heart that I was truly reaching out to Taylor and wanted to hopefully put this in the past. She also knew Taylor a bit and thought that we could resolve this. I thank Dedra for being such a good friend throughout the years, especially the last year and a half. We've been through so much together and she's been so supportive. Dedra got emotional that night watching Taylor's behavior towards me and thought it was unfair. That's why she came to my defense.

At one point, I remember trying to "shush" Dedra because the more Dedra pushed, it became more apparent that Taylor did not want to participate. It just exacerbated the situation and made it more volatile rather than being helpful. I know Dedra's intentions were good. I know she wanted to help and was hoping that we could have some resolution. When she saw Taylor's behavior and her feelings towards me, Dedra became protective of her friend and wanted to stick up for me. I truly appreciate what she did. Dedra and I have been through quite a year together and I know she felt for Taylor. Dedra's a very fair person. She's always been an extremely fair-minded person. She has a good heart and always means well. I feel bad she got into the mix, but she got emotional when Taylor made a few snide remarks and was being dismissive of my feelings. The big picture is that we should all help support each other with the challenges we face as women in life.I think Dedra was basically trying to say to Taylor that we both need each other right now. We shouldn't be fighting with one another. I understand Taylor was really upset with me but it was an unfortunate situation all the way around.

Then Brandi told Taylor to leave. It was sad to see Taylor breakdown and very heartbreaking to watch the scene unfold. But it was Brandi's party, and she really wanted us to come together for a fun evening. It just wasn't working out. She had the right to ask anyone to leave when things were getting out of control, as they obviously were. I thank Brandi for stepping up and trying to re-establish control that evening.

My heart broke for Taylor. All I can say is I'm very grateful that Dedra and Brandi stood by my side.

I realized the more people were trying to get Taylor and I to talk, things only got worse. We all finally realized it wasn't the right time for our conversation. If only Taylor and I had some alone time together we might have been able to talk it through. Well, things just escalated. I know I tried to reach out to Taylor but she didn't want anything to do with it.

And so I left the party with an uneasy feeling. I was disappointed. There were a lot of unsettling things said. It was just sad, the whole situation was really sad.

Brandi: Kyle Wants to Help When There's an Audience

Brandi explains why she was trying to get Kim out of Eileen's house.

Newsflash: I'M NOT SOBER, and fantasies are just that--fantasies. I've just about HAD IT with these judgmental women that pretend to be perfect and think they do no wrong. Spa day was fine other than the uncomfortable wine tasting, but I tried to tell some jokes to loosen the mood.


Poker night...Kyle called me and asked me to bring champagne in the car for the ride over to poker night at Eileen's, and we shared one bottle. I generally drink wine, not champagne, and was feeling good. As all of my friends have pointed out to me, it's the third glass that usually takes me to the dark side. Kyle had as much to drink as I did, but it didn't seem to affect her. I guess she must have a really HIGH tolerence. Eileen's house is beautiful on the outside--and it may be a dick thing to say--but creepy on the inside in my opinion. I switched over to white wine, and while there were a few appetizers (one made with kids' frozen mini pancakes and oddly colored salmon), there really wasn't much to eat, and it was dinner time after all.

We sit to learn poker. I'm drunk and hungry, and all these smart women act like it's rocket science. It was ridiculous. Sitting next to Kim, even in my intoxicated state, I see that she isn't herself. I tried to pretend like all was fine but knew that I needed to get her out of there. Kim had been sick for weeks coughing really violently whenever I was around her, and I asked her to go to the doctor, but she said it was just bronchitis. Everyone is noticing Kim isn't herself, and Kyle and Kim go off to the restroom. As Kim came out, she wanted Kyle to leave her alone and to leave. I went over to try and help Kim get the heck out of there. Kim wanted to say goodbye before leaving for some reason, so we went in the kitchen, and I grabbed a slice of pizza, because I was starving. I try to get Kim out of Eileen's house, because it's clear to me that Kyle wants to have this bad situation play out in front of the other ladies. I don't want that to happen, so I try to get Kim to leave. 

If Kyle was so worried and embarrassed about Kim's behavior, then why wouldn't she just let me get Kim home and out of this embarrassing situation? 

Brandi Glanville

Kyle only wants to "help" Kim when Kyle has an audience. In that moment of time, Kim was not in the right state of mind or condition to have any kind of conversation or altercation, yet Kyle persisted, even going as far as getting physical and grabbing me twice, as well as breaking my skin open to keep me from removing Kim from this bad situation. So ask yourself this question: If Kyle was so worried and embarrassed about Kim's behavior, then why wouldn't she just let me get Kim home and out of this embarrassing situation? Even in my intoxicated state, I knew that was the only solution. Kyle, while planes and yachts are nice, if family is everything, how could you treat your sister Kim the way you do?  

Until next time.
