Lisa R Reflects on That Bittersweet Episode

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!

Kyle: I Have Never Had Anyone Put a Hand on Me

Kyle explains what worried her most the night of the poker party.

Wow, this is a difficult blog to write. This was a horrible night made all the worse by Brandi's behavior. When I walked outside, I wanted to talk to my sister without anyone else around. I tried to walk Kim away from the cameras, as well as Brandi. Brandi was relentless. I asked her over and over again to leave us alone and let me speak with my sister privately. As Kim and I were standing by the garage trying to speak in private, Brandi grabbed both of my wrists and would not let go. I was shocked. I have never had anyone put a hand on me and honestly started to feel scared. I don't want to be overly dramatic about the situation, but Brandi is 5'10" and I am 5'2", and at this point I did not know what she was capable of, especially because she was intoxicated and aggressive.


I took off my shoes, so I could get out of there as quickly as possible. I want to say that while the physical part of this evening was very upsetting, it paled in comparison to my concern for my sister. What Brandi is so clearly trying to do to my relationship with my sister is what was upsetting me the most. We had worked so hard on our relationship and had come so far, and to see this happening had me overcome with emotion.

I just hope that Kim can see what we all saw so clearly...that Brandi's actions speak louder than any of her venomous lies.

Kyle Richards

Brandi keeps saying I'm jealous of how close they are and how she's been there for Kim. I never realized they were as close as Brandi claims, and I never knew Brandi to be there for Kim other than taking that one call that she talked about in her interview. Brandi did call me to say that Kim had called her at 2 AM in the morning. She asked me to please not repeat it, and I never did. But she went on camera letting everyone know about it. Why would she repeat that? I also never said "That's not my problem, that's just Kim." I had my hands tied as I was asked to please not repeat that this information was shared with me . Other than Brandi telling me about this one call, I have never gotten any late night calls or any signs of my sister not being OK or in danger in any way. If there was something I should have been there for, I certainly had no idea. Perhaps my sister chose not to share with me and felt comfortable sharing with Brandi. I cannot be there for something I am unaware of. If I knew of something that Kim needed me for, I would be there as I always have. There are years of history there that Brandi is not privy to, and I will never share, no matter how many hurtful lies she hurls my way.
When I watch Brandi with Kim, I see someone who is taking advantage of my sister at her most vulnerable. It's frustrating, worrisome, and hurtful that my sister cannot see this. Why does Brandi want Kim to feel that she is the only one there for her? We come from a big family that my sister has plenty of support from. People who genuinely love and care for her. Not to mention that Kim has four adult children that love and support their mom.
As I walked away from this night, I knew I would never be friends with Brandi and was scared of just how much damage she had done to my relationship with Kim. I just hope that Kim can see what we all saw so clearly...that Brandi's actions speak louder than any of her venomous lies.
Thanks for watching.
XO,
Kyle
