Not for the Faint of Heart

Dana explains why you've got to be tough to take game night and gives you the scoop on her new nickname.

Boy I really come off as a s--t starter at the end of that episode!

Truth is Brandi and I were not friends yet, and she was not my favorite person going into that evening -- so if you sense me turning on her quickly. . .I did. Our relationship has had a serious arc over the year, and I don't want to ruin it. You'll just have to watch.

Kim and Kyle are great girls; they are very protective and loving toward each other. It's obvious when you are in a room with them and really nice to see. I have always enjoyed Kyle's quick tongue and great sense of humor, and there are a lot of layers to Kim. She has had such an interesting life, and I love to hear her stories when she shares them. When I came to the door and saw Kim, I could immediately see that she was in what I call "baby bird" mode, and I just wasn't going to attack her even though she came off a bit disrespectful with the "Pam" thing. I decided to turn it into a joke between us, and we really had fun with it. If the best she could come up with was I need a better housekeeper, it's all good.

The gush about Hawaii to Camille was a bit much. In the beginning of the night, I wanted to make everyone feel at home, and I guess I over did it. Taylor picked up on it. Watching Taylor and I together on the show was so nice. I love that girl!

Originally my "game night get together" evening flow was to have us congregate in the game room for an hour while we waited for everybody to arrive. In Beverly Hills everyone is always late for some reason. Originally I wanted us to have a few drinks and grab a plate of game themed desserts and then promptly get started, but Adrienne was two hours late which through an unexpected wrench in things. In retrospect, I shouldn't have made everyone wait for her, but I was trying to be polite, because she's a person I really wanted to get to know better. The end though was starvation. But let's face it, who eats dessert in that group!?!

Once we moved into the living room, Brandi was upset because she didn't feel included, but she wasn't exactly making an effort either. She started calling me "Pam," but not in a nice way like she was trying to have fun with me. It felt mean. Then instead of trying to be supportive in the awkward situation Kyle was in with Kim, she drew attention to it. Frankly, if you think someone has an issue with drugs or alcohol, wouldn't you want to help them or excuse their behavior instead of shining a flashlight on it? If it was me and you didn't want me on your team, I'd say, "OK, I’ll be at the bar then. . .have fun." She really was egging it on in her behavior, and I kind of looked to Kyle to make it stop because I was uncomfortable and over it. It was ruining the game! Then before I knew it things got personal. . .

Game night is not for the faint of heart!

Brandi: I Don't Enjoy Anger or Grudges

Brandi explains why she's ready to move on, as long as it doesn't mean kissing a**.

I’m back in L.A. after a wonderful trip to visit my family. I’d like to thank everyone for their support regarding my father’s health. Dad is back home and on his way to what will be a slow and long recovery, but he is getting better and that’s all that matters. I’m so grateful I was able to hang with my boys and family and just kick back, cook, watch my nieces and boys play, and relax.

So tonight’s show is pretty drama-free for me, which is great, because I’m in a happy place and sometimes watching old drama unfold can set me back a little, emotionally. And can anyone believe that we are on episode six, and I haven’t hit the sauce yet? Don’t worry, it's coming. It's not fun to be sober all of the time.

Lisa Rinna introduced her parents and her Medford, Oregon hometown to the audience tonight. I love to see where people are from. It was a heartfelt moment where she shared the regret of visiting her childhood home for the last time and the guilt of living far away from her aging parents. It was very moving watching Lisa R. trying to instill the gravity of the situation of aging, illness, and finality of life to her teenaged daughters. After the normal teenage resistance faded, they realized it was a serious trip, and I’m glad she insisted her girls accompany her on it. I have to add that after seeing Lois Rinna, I can see where Lisa’s got her eyes from, and Frank Rinna’s paintings are amazing. I want one.

Kyle’s BBQ was next with everyone having a pretty good time. It was a very nice party. Yo was looking perfect as always. Meeting Eileen was fun and talking about Days was fun, too. Yes, I was a fan back in the day. Once we sat down, Kim’s old acting stories about faking tennis on Magnum, P.I. were the best. Eileen’s husband, Vince, is really nice and had great stories, too. He was on a lot of TV shows, like Kim. Kim and Vince kept the laughs going.

It was nice to see Mauricio and hear about another vacation. He is always cool and relaxed, and it’s nice to see him doing so well. Anyway, when all is said and done, we all saw who the true star of the BBQ was…Yolanda’s sandals. Want!

Moving forward doesn’t involve me constantly kissing a**.

Brandi Glanville

Lisa V. and Ken were there, and despite the awkwardness, it was really nice to see them again. You could probably tell how uncomfortable I was feeling. You can also see, I tried. Hard. It was a bit awkward, but I did try my best to put the past behind us. Obviously this is going to take some time! Kyle said it best: “Lisa likes to hold on to grudges.” Again, Kyle said that, not me!

I don’t enjoy power plays, holding on to anger or grudges. I prefer peace, apologies, amends, and moving on. Life is hard enough without making it harder. Maybe relationships change but definitely trying for a peaceful coexistence is what I'm striving for at this point in my life. That said, moving forward doesn’t involve me constantly kissing a**. I won’t do that. Relationships have to be equal, right?

So, until next week, I hope all of you come watch my housewarming party. You’re all invited, and there’s going to be plenty of wine--my own personal label, actually (not that we have a name, yet)!

Happy holidays, peace, love, joy, and health to you and all your loved ones!

XOXO,

Brandi
