Dana Wilkey

Dana is particularly saddened by Brandi's treatment of Taylor.

on Dec 5, 20110

I feel sick after watching this week's episode. I was not invited to Brandi's which I was really pissed about at the time. I thought she would have reciprocated my invitation to Game Night but she didn't. I didn't want to invite her originally to Game Night, but I did because Taylor asked me to give her another chance after Adrienne's barbeque.

Taylor is always such a good person, that's what added to my frustration in watching the show. To see Brandi kick Taylor out in such an emotional state after Brandi's emotional display at my event really made me mad. I am so sorry I wasn't there to defend Taylor and tell Brandi my thoughts personally.

Dana, You are the pot stirrer. You don't belong on the show any more then you belong in Beverly Hills. I do hope Bravo can see you are just not an asset. Your brown noseing, constant name dropping, and back biting is classless. Brandy can stay but you need to go.

Like most of the readers, I disagree with you for the most part. First off, you and Brandi aren't friends. And yes, I do think that it was wrong for her to say what she did about your husband. That obviously hurt your feelings. But you didn't exactly come to her defense at Game Night and you always seem to be taking jabs at her and then covering it up with laughter. And Taylor; I feel bad for Taylor. I really really do. But you and Brandi did not know what was going on with Taylor at this point. I mean seriously. For all Brandi knew, Taylor was just some angry, dramatic drunk. What would you do if some 40 year old woman you barely knew was sitting on top of a table [your Friend's table] screaming and crying without showing any sign of calming down? Being the high class party planner that you are, I highly doubt you would allow that type of behavior to fly after putting so much work into throwing a party together. Brandi had every right to ask Taylor to leave. And considering the fact that she was a little hammered, I think she actually did something very reasonable and mature.

Dana, I would like to get to know the real you. You seem like you have a good heart, but you're always so fake. Stop kissing people's butts. Really, I'm surprised your mouth hasn't turned brown. Stop joking at the expense of others and just be up front if you have a problem with someone. Say what you feel and mean what you say. So simple.

Someone tell me ~ Taylor is telling everyone and Lisa that she doesn't remember anything that happened at Brandi's party! Then she proceeds to tell Lisa (oh yeah, LIS)?, that Kyle did the splits and then proceeds to tell her how rude Dede was! Well, if she can't remember anything....?? Just saying.....

Dana, I believbe you have attached your wagon to the wrong horses (the Richards girls). How can you stand back and see how Kyle and Kim treat Brandi and, for that matter, each other? They are so damaged and yet you think they will "allow" you into their "world". You didn't become successful by ass kissing but I think you may have indulged in some ass kicking and victimizing to make it to the professional level you have achieved. Otherwise, I can't think of any other reason why you allowed ther Richards to treat Brandi they way they did at your game night or to continue to excuse Taylor for her 'victim" behavior and melodramatic public scenes she creates to gain support from her "friends". You are not part of a solution, you are a very large part of the problem.

Too bad you didn't ask Kim and Kyle to leave the party, when they were attacking Brandi. Sorry, but Brandi was more responsible hostess.

Come on people, have compassion for Taylor. She is in a very bad way, and needs all the help, love, and support she can get! If she had diabetes, would you blame her for having it? Would you say she is playing a victim card?? Would you say she shouldn't come to Brandi's party because she might insulin?? It is the same with any mental or emotional illness. I am shocked at people's reaction to Taylor - mean, mean, mean. She was the one who tried to diffuse the situation, over and over, and everyone else said they knew better than her and that they were gonna get in her face and FORCE her to talk to Camille NOW, with everyone adding their 2 cents worth to her life. She physically walked away from the confrontation 3 times!!! But no, they knew what she should do NOW! Taylor was correct in saying repeatedly, that this was not the time or place to have such a conversation with Camille. Camille plays the innocent victim. She is a petty, jealous snake. She loves making other people look bad and then acting like she is a just a sweetheart. Beware the snake!

Dana, I am so sorry you got your feelings hurt by not being invited to Brandi's beach party. I think you should grab your big comfy Ralph Lauren bathrobe and relax with a good Penguine published book in your furry Fendi slippers and sink into your Cindy Crawford reclining chair and never give that big, bad Brandi a second thought!

Will your BFF Taylor EVER take responsibility for her problems? Or does she just go through life pointing the finger at others? This is getting old.

OMG! It was so painfull to watch last couple episodes, where Brandi was being insulted repeatedly by the other housewives, specially by the crazy sisters and you. Dana, it is very obvious that you are so busy kissing the crazy sisters' behind that you don't know why Brandi did not invite you. It was embarrassing to see the so called 'Classy' ladies in Beverly Hills are so not so classy. Shame on you, dana, kim and kyle.

Taylor is drunk and a drunk taylor is not a kind taylor. Also, taylor is having some problems with her husband. I really feel that taylor should not go to the party since she is emotionally unstable and having major family problem, plus camille is there, that gives her another reason she should not come. Dana is such a bootlicker to kyle and will do anything to get in her goodbooks. Brandi didnt do anything wrong, its her party and she is allowed to dismiss a guest when they are behaving too out of control.

Dana - after you allowed Brandi to be treated that way at your party, I sure as heck wouldn't invite you to anything! You allowed a GUEST IN YOUR HOME to be terrorized by two other women all because you were so desperate to become friends with them. All you have accomplished by being on the show was to show that you are an extremely insecure person.

I actually like Brandi and her forwardness. She says whats on her mind and your busy saying what label your are wearing, or borrowing. I still cannot get over that your house has hardly any furnature. But hey, you do have a pair of $25,000 sunglasses.

Brandi had every right to request that Taylor leave. Taylor was drunk, irrational and totally hysterical. She directed her anger towards Camille, the only one who had the guts to be honest with her, but Taylor brought this all on herself. Lisa, Kyle and you do nothing but enable her.

Dana, Taylor is mother Theresa. So innocent and the whole world is against her. (rolled eyes)

Well, I don't know if you realize this or not, but THAT WAS NOT BRANDI'S HOUSE and she had VALID concerns due to that fact. It was a VERY WISE choice to ask them politely to leave BECAUSE everyone WAS TRYING TO CALM HER DOWN AND SHE TOTALLY LOST CONTROL.. it was going DOWN HILL FAST.. and I would not want someone to use my home for a get together and have it all go to hell in a hand basket and just DO NOTHING.. that's NUTS. It's easier and smarter to end it all and just touch back once everone has slept it off and slept on it, period.

Brandi is a better event planner than you.... No one was starving at her party, the food and wine were great!!!

I wouldn't invite you to my party either, after the way you treated Brandi and allowed her to be treated in your own home. You can stay home with all of your "named" possessions.....since you seem to value them over people.

Brandy did what YOU should have done on game night. She took control of the situation & asked the person out of control to leave. She didn't join in as you did. Reciprocated for game night? Comedy. Sell that line of crap somewhere else.

Dana, it is so aparent that you will do anything to get "in" with Kyle and the other ladies. Your nose is getting more brown by the episode. I really hope you aren't asked back for another season. You are soooo boring to watch!

Dana, I understand why Brandy is not you're favorite person. Does everyone else have a case of amnesia, are we all watching the same show? Brandy insulted you by claiming that you're fiance was cheating on you with other women. Never mind how crass she is in general. Her mouth needs to be washed out with soap. She downgrades the show. Like Adrienne said, "Brandy has no filter." Her rationalization of "Balls to wall" just illustrates her lack of decorum. Lisa should host an etiquette school to save Brandy from herself. Taylor should have stayed home if she was not ready to be social and cordial to Camille. Be thankful, you were not invited to this train wreck of a party which even the hostess was not sober at....Need I say more. Hope to see more of you next season. You bring a lot to the show without the mention of the cost of your wares and the designer. Love ya

Taylor nor those in the "know" had not confided in Brandi about the extent of Taylors problems. Unless she was expected to have ESP how was she to know that her situation was any worse than Camille's or her owns even? If you and Kyle want to pass judgement, a real friend would talk her out of continuing with the show and appearances at her state of mind. Never seen such catty, unsophisticated women...

Seriously? Taylor was, once again, unhinged and attacking anyone she could. Your defense of her seems nothing more than another installment of your mission to promote yourself, though judging by the comments posted here, you seriously miscalculated.

Dana - what show were you watching?????? The one I watched bears no resemblance to what you are blogging about. Maybe you should rewind the DVR and watch again.

Dana, are you for real?! Seems like the hurt feelings over being left out fueled this response. I can only imagine what else would have happened had Taylor stayed. She was completely irrational, confrontational, mean and abusive. Give me a break.

done!
done!

so have been reading all the blogs and happy to see that there are sane and normal women out there!! We don't agree with the 'mean" girls.Gives me hope for our ethical and moral future. Maybe now we should all stop watching these shows.

Brandi acted as an appropriate hostess in asking Taylor to leave. Her behavior was erratic and Brandi did the responsible thing for the safety of her guests to remove Taylor. The question I have is why is Taylor drinking so much and away from her child and broken family? Her gilfriends didn't need her at that party, Lisa wasn't there. Obviously Dana or Kim either; so it's not required for taping. I think Taylor should devote more time to her family. What that episode revealed regarding Taylor is very concerning and apparent that there are some mental health issues she needs to address.

I wonder what Nene would have to say about Taylor's behavior. I don't mean that in a bad way but I think even Nene would agree it is out of control.

If you didn't even want to invite Brandi to game night why are you so pissed that she didn't invite you? Clearly Brandi has more sense than you and realized even before this aired that you are trying to hard and not genuine. What you just blogged doesn't even make sense and I would think that after watching the footage you would see it was your "dear" friend Taylor that started the whole thing with her dramatic "No I'm not okay" visit to the porch. She needs to learn how to handle herself with class.

What?! Brandi behaved as any sane person would. Her only fault was not removing DeDe, who actually started it.

Since you are Taylor's friend and can only see her point of view in this matter you do not realize how WRONG and OUT OF HER MIND Taylor really is. Brandi actually did the correct thing by removing the problem.

Dana why would you even think Brandi should invite you to her party after the way you treated her in your home and allowed your other guests to attack her. As far as taylor is concerned Brandi did the right thing asking her to leave, she obviously had had way to much to drink and was causing a scene screaming and carrying on. You really seem to have way to high of an opinion of yourself Dana..no one else cared whether you were there or not!

I know BRAVO won't post this, but Brandi is not really meant for this show. Please don't bring her back next season.

Dana, at least Brandi is honest about who she is. You were extremely rude to her when she was a guest in your home so I'm glad she didn't invite you. I really hope they take you off the show because you're fake. Seriously, so transparent its scary.

Dana~ Are you watching the same show we are? I think you decided early on that you were hanging your flag on Team Richards and never gave Brandi a chance....she has done nothing to you and yet every week you continue to attack her in your blog. Very sad.

dana dana dana why would you be invited to anything brandi hosts?? you just wanted to go so you could bash her in front of her and not behind her back. grow up lately? taylor was obviously distraught and drunk. brandi had every right to ask her to leave. taylor was uncontrollable that night. if she feels the need to confront camille-do it privately, not at a party. kyle-making fun of brandi the whole night, real classy. center of attention much? d. d. really should have stayed out of it.

First of all, Taylor was acting like a teenager with her comments that were just loud enough for Camille to hear. Very mature of Taylor, I mean come on that is just so high school. If I was D.D. I would have not done anything different, she was just protecting her best friend, who by the way was trying to be nice and an adult by ignoring Taylor. Enough is enough, Taylor is just taking the kindness these ladies are offering her for weakness. Yeah and you are one to talk, during game night you saw how evil Kim and Kyle were treating Brandi and you passively egged it on. That night just showed that you have nothing to offer this group. Not to mention Brandi hit the nail on the head with Kim because who just checked themselves into rehab. Kim I hope is off the show and if they keep her I hope they make her apologize to Brandi in a grand way and film it, just to show her and Kyle that you do not treat people the way they do and are able to get away with it. And you are not doing Taylor any favors condoning her behavior.

I don't particulaly care for Brandi myself or you either as a matter of fact. But Brandi had every right to ask Taylor to leave. Bottom line it was her party and Taylor was out of line. Sorry she has had so many things going on but that doesn't give her the right to act the way she did. Camille just stated a fact. Taylor has never had any problem ditching out with any of the other ladies, guess she just got a taste of her own medicine. She should have stayed home. she knew Camille would be there.

Dana, I wholeheartedly disagree with you. Taylor's behavior was frightening and she's lucky no one called the nearest mental facility and had her removed in a straight jacket. Rather than sniping and competing to be #1, why don't you all see that Taylor gets the mental health care she desperately needs? Book and tv deals may pay the bills, but Kennedy is the one that will truly suffer if Taylor doesn't get her life straightened out. Good luck.

Whyyyyyyy in the world would Brandi invite you after how she was treated in YOUR OWN HOME??........ya, I think "no" on that!

When Taylor was aked by Andy if she wanted Dana to join the cast, she rolled her eyes and said NO! Heehee nice friend you thought you had in Taylor. Me thinks it should have been Brandi that you tried to be friends with, she's not the the mean girl or the emotionally unstable one in the group. And Kyle has made faces toward you too and has said not such nice things about you....but somehow you still want to be their friends....sad.

Dana, I thought you were kinda fun and quirky when you came on to the scene. After the way you conducted your self during your game night party, I was appalled that you would allow anyone to be treated the way Brandi was in your home. Of course she would not invite you anywhere. Its very easy for you to try and be a big shot with your blog. Its obvious that you are jealous of Brandi and how much screen time she is getting compared to you. Sorry not everyone is good TV. Stick with your party planning.

Starla

Why would she invite you after how you acted towards her? And why wouldn't Brandi want her out of there acting like a crazy animal? Taylor plays the victim all to well, and Kyle defends her for it as ridiculous as that is. So why your mad about not being invited to that party is beyond me, but I sure wouldn't invite someone who treated me as you did Brandi.

JerseyGirlViewer

Why are you surprised she didn't invite you? Even though she didn't handle herself as well as she could have at your event, she was ganged up on at your party - and you as the hostess just sat back and laughed at her expense. Nobody was right then, and they weren't right this last episode either. Sad all the way around. I'm sure hindsight is 20/20, and nobody knows what Taylor was telling them off camera but those involved - but the way everyone flocked around her meltdown at Brandi's was pathetic, all for attention but nobody seemed to help.

Perhaps you would have thought more highly of Brandi if she had laughed at Taylor while she was crying and, I don't know, say 2 sisters were picking on her mercilessly. Would that have made her a better person in your eyes? You know, more like you?
