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: Someone Poked the Wrong Bear

Brandi thinks Lisa Rinna shouldn't be surprised by Kim's reaction. 

Hello Bravo Peeps,

Tonight I’m finally home in L.A. with my family!
I can’t tell you how nice it is to just slow down for a while. My mind is on recipes and new kids' projects this week. When I catch up, I will for sure share a recipe.

Tonight’s episode starts with a really fun event created by Yolanda: a scavenger hunt. Not just any scavenger hunt, but a Beverly Hills scavenger hunt on Rodeo Drive. Well, hey, it’s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, so why not? I personally thought it was a welcome change and a chance to have some fun and share it with the fans. Despite Yo’s health, she is a really positive, uplifting spirit, and I’m thankful she brings fun to our group.

Yo hired experts to make sure we all had a great time and made thoughtful shirts to make everyone feel special. A brilliant move by Yo was having the teams chosen by the company, so no high school clique nonsense. The theme was team building, being positive, working together, and putting aside petty differences. As Yo said, “It was a bonding activity.”

Firstly, I think Yo’s idea was great and a success for those who participated wholeheartedly. I give a pass to Kim, who was still a trooper but was still experiencing some knee and hernia pain. Protecting your knees is serious if you have joint issues, and she was smart to pace herself as tendon injuries can last for months. The others? Well, you saw what I saw. Sadly, I saw a lot of negativity, complaining, petty, unnecessary jabs, and criticizing their own teammates for physical issues they can’t control. Quotes from one of our ladies: “I hate clues, I hate the game, I hate the whole thing.” She followed this by shooting the bird at Yo. Nice.

On the other hand, I had fun; I love the sun, games, clues, and getting outside. I’d love to participate in other games or lighthearted competitions on RHOBH. Also, how fun was it to see a healthy Camille? She looked great, was sweet, cheerful, and a good sport. Shoutout to Camille for beating cancer with such grace.

The prize for participating in the fun or awful day, depending on which Housewife we’re talking about, was a paid luxury trip to Amsterdam! Some of us had also accepted an invitation to David Foster's charity event in Calgary. Not sure about the rest of you, but a trip to see Yo’s homeland with Yo is and was an amazing gift. Some people say, “Planes and yachts are not important,” but they don’t own planes or yachts, so we kinda know, to them, they are very important. Me? I am thankful for the Fosters' generosity but would be just as happy riding old bicycles down a dirt road with a healthy strong Yo.

Which brings us to David Foster. David is many things--Canadian, composer, songwriter, Grammy winner, and Yo’s love--but he is also a generous philanthropist. So, I’d like to give kudos where they are due. The David Foster Foundation’s Miracle Gala and Concert raised $8.2 million in one night to help Canadian families with children undergoing pediatric organ transplants. On the fun side, we were lucky enough to see Jennifer Hudson, Jackie Evancho, Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds, Brett Kissel, Sinbad, and legendary rocker Steven Tyler. Great charity, great trip, great night.

To me, announcing you’re 'a nice person' isn’t the same as actually being a nice person.

Brandi Glanville

On the dramatic side, someone poked the wrong bear. We saw Kim slowly learning that someone has had one-on-one talks about her private life with everyone on RHOBH--everyone, that is, but Kim herself. To me, announcing you’re “a nice person” isn’t the same as actually being a nice person.

Yep, one new member of our little group is hell-bent on intruding, casting strong labels, making insanely irresponsible assumptions and stating them as facts, all over the place: on RHOBH, the Internet, to the media, and on Bravo’s WWHL. Calmly butting into a stranger's life with such a strong agenda and absolutely zero knowledge of any details of that life after only a few scattered social functions is a whole new level of crossing boundaries. Then, tonight, acting all wide-eyed, innocent, and confused at the results after doing so? To quote the instigator, “Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs." On another note, or maybe the same note (boundaries), it’s probably not a good idea to announce your spouse’s previous alcoholism before he does it himself. But maybe he was OK with that, and I’m wrong. Well, in any case, sincere congrats on three years of sobriety.

Kim Richards was a movie star when most of us were home watching her movies on TV after school and doing our homework. She’s been in this town a long time, knows everyone, worked since she was born, raised four children, survived Hollywood, sobriety, family, divorces, deaths, has more on her plate than all of us, and throughout it all, is caring for her terminally ill ex-husband with patience and grace. Sometimes you poke the wrong bear; that’s all I’m saying. Good luck with that.

So, on to Amsterdam. We’re taking RHOBH fans to the Netherlands. I can promise more drama and insanity but really hope you get to see some of Yolanda’s homeland, meet her wonderful family, and enjoy it as much as I did, when I could.

See you next week and enjoy the Netherlands. Maybe Google where we’re going and learn more about Yo’s hometown of Papendrecht, Netherlands. It’s right outside of Amsterdam and truly beautiful.

My day just got busy, so I’m signing off.

Mom duty calls!

XOXO,
