The Pressure's On

Camille shares why she was so nervous to speak at the luncheon and gives us an update on her mom's sitatuion.

I already touched on Game Night in my last blog, but I do want to address a couple of comments Kim made that evening.

First: slut pig -- that was a riot. Hilarious, I loved that. We should have slut pig shirts made. Between that and "Big hands, Big feet, Big disappointment," we could have a whole line this season.

Now to Kim's other comment, when she mentioned me making her uncomfortable last year: I thought Kim's comment was a bit sarcastic, and even though she was joking I felt that it was a bit of a dig. It hurt for a second, but, after everything I’ve been through -- "sticks and stones can break my bones but words can never hurt me." I think when you’ve been through so much, the catty stuff doesn't seem as important. But at that second, it did bite a bit, because I've never gone after Kim. I've never said anything negative about her, and, if anything, I've always been fair to Kim. When Brandi cornered me and asked me a very uncomfortable question, I didn’t want to say anything about that because it’s not my business.

Watching this episode was ironic because my mother is in the hospital right now due to complications from surgery. I tweeted that yesterday, and I've gotten a lot of support from my fans out there, so thank you so much for your thoughts. My mom was diagnosed at the age of 46 with ovarian cancer. She was in remission for 17 years, until two years ago when she was diagnosed with cancer of the bladder. Now she has to go in every three to five months for surgery and for chemo, and now she's in the hospital for complications, but she’s doing well. She's hanging in there.

So tonight's episode was, of course, very emotional and poignant. When cancer affects somebody in the family, the whole family is affected. It's not just that one person, it's the whole family, and we’re there to support her. My mom and I and go out and do whatever we can. If we can raise money and raise awareness for early detection, I think that’s the best protection. In the past fifteen or twenty years, the medical community has made huge strides, and it's because of that my mom's still alive today. And thank god for that.

At this event my mom was being honored by John Wayne Cancer Institute, so I was asked to speak. You know, I can go on a talk show and be fine, but with my mother there and my friends sitting around the table I felt the pressure, especially since it was a sensitive and emotional topic. Plus it was the first time I had all the girls together at an event like that, and after Game Night and knowing that not everyone was talking, there was some added stress. I get very emotional when I think of my mom and her battle, and also others that are going through this. It's not just my family, but many of my friends are going through this with family members, and there are millions of people out there that go through this as well. It's emotional for me to discuss it, so you see me start to flub and stumble all over my words (as I'm doing even now). You can see I barely got through. I felt like the pressure was on!

It's so very important for me to be involved in raising awareness and funds for cancer research. I'm so proud of my mom and I admire her faith and especially strength. In everything that she's gone through she’s really been there for me, and that's incredible.

On a lighter note, Lisa meeting the wedding planner seemed as if it was straight out of the movie Father of the Bride. What a character. I loved Lisa's expression when he mentioned it would cost a million dollars for a Beverly Hills wedding, and she's like, "No! Not this wedding.' I know if anybody can put together a beautiful wedding that looks like a million dollars, Lisa can -- without spending that much. Lisa's very capable, and she'll be able to create something as fabulous while keeping the cost to something that she felt was appropriate for this event. It was exciting to see the process of that happening and the beginning of Pandora's excitement, so that was something very positive.

Kim: My Heart Felt So Big

Kim discusses her daughter's wedding and her special relationship with Monty.

The countdown...Less than 10 days before Christmas! I hope you are almost ready for the holiday!

This is an exciting episode for me as I share with you all a peek into one of the most important days of our lives: The day my Brookie married the man of her dreams. Brooke and Thayer have known each other since birth, it's fate...God...love... I am truly blessed!


Kyle and Maurice's trip to Mallorca looked absolutely amazing! It looked like everybody had a great time. Yolanda always keeps her high. These situations put things into perspective for us. We love our children so much! We give me them everything inside us to make them strong young people, and at the end of the day, we can only hope that they are going to make the right choices.

It was cute watching Eileen go over her dialogue with her niece. It reminded me of my sisters and me. I was very happy to see that Lisa V. got her star on the Palm Springs Walk of Fame! How exciting to see all her fans dressed in pink! She looked so pretty, and Ken couldn't have looked prouder. Congrats to Lisa V., Ken and Giggy!

One of my favorites couples is David and Yolanda. Listening to the two of them, well I just love them together and the team that they make! They support and balance each other so perfectly, and that is also what makes them such great parents!
Oh Brandi and her podcast! Filtered and unfiltered, she's so damn funny! All day long!

I had no idea he would end up giving me one of the most wonderful gifts of my entire life, our daughter Brooke, or that he would be my best friend from that day forward.

Kim Richards

You all officially get to meet Monty! I met Monty when I was 19, on a blind date. Go figure! I had no idea he would end up giving me one of the most wonderful gifts of my entire life, our daughter Brooke, or that he would be my best friend from that day forward.

We were married for a brief time, but our hearts never parted! Giving birth to our daughter, we shared a bond, but our friendship has always been so deep. We have always made being parents to our daughter a priority. Monty has always been kind of a wanderer but has stayed at my home on and off over the last 15 years. In June, Monty was diagnosed with lung cancer, and I decided it was time for Monty to move in for good. He moved in full time with me, and I fixed a room where he is very comfortable and we all feel very good knowing Monty is where he needs to be and he is in good, loving hands! As you can see, Monty and I have a great friendship! We really do enjoy each other's company, and I can't imagine my life without him. So we are not thinking that way! Positive thoughts only!

Brooke and Thayer got engaged Christmas morning 2013. One of the most exciting phone calls and Christmases ever! Their plan was a destination beach wedding in 2015, however, our plans took a shift when we found out about Monty. Of course the most important thing right then was that Brooke could have her father walk her down the aisle, and that Monty would be strong enough! Brooke knew exactly what she wanted. She and I worked non-stop with an amazing team of people! From Mark Zunino designing the most amazing dress, Petals by David flying in the most Gorgeous Flowers, Glen our caterer, and our fantastic coordinator Vanessa, we were able to do just that.


Brooke and Thayer wed on August 2, 2014. It was only our family. A very intimate, private ceremony! The most magical and special evening . I wish I could tell you what I was thinking, the flashbacks to so many memories. Brooke was radiating with joy! More joy than I had ever seen come from that little face! She looked stunning! I, too, was overwhelmed with joy. I was so grateful to see her arm and arm with her dad, walking down the aisle, to join her soon-to-be husband. When she got to Thayer, each second became more and more intense! Then she looked over and at me and mouthed the words, "I love you." I thought I was going to fall out of my chair! My heart felt so big! 


The vows, the kiss, and then they were married!

Thank you for sharing this amazing, magical, and special moment with us!

xo,
Kim
