Lisa R Reflects on That Bittersweet Episode

The Beverly Hillbillies

Dana address the amount of "slut" talk and why she wishes she had been there to defend Taylor.

All this talk about sluts and swearing has made me feel like a cast member of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hillbillies instead of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. LOL. Look you guys: nobody should want to be a slut, dress like a slut, or call themselves one. I want you all to have self-esteem! To me, dressing like a slut means that you dress to show off your physical assets because you think you don’t have anything else to offer. Why would you limit yourself like that? Men should be here to entertain you, not the other way around! Brandi you are not a slut so stop saying it!

I couldn't help but think to myself as I watched this episode that there are so many of us that just want to be friends like Taylor and Lisa or me and Kyle (in the beginning), but for some reason there were all these walls up. This got me wondering why is trust such a big issue in this group? Is it possible that because our friendships are developing publicly and that all the girls have so much influence that people are scared to let their guard down? I think the answer is yes. I also think everyone is so busy in their lives that when we aren’t forced into hanging out none of us would bother. Thank god for group events! It is true the older you get the harder it is to develop relationships so making friends for most of us takes effort. I really think these ladies are all cool in their own way but it is sooooo hard to get hang time. For the record, the girls are worth it (yes, even Brandi if she would just stop pissing me off for more than 5 minutes at a time).

On another note, I just want to say the story about Kyle and her Christmas party was true. I was at the party, and after Kyle invited Brandi and she said she couldn’t come, Brandi accidentally wrote a text to Kyle saying "Kyle is such a C-U-Next-Tuesday (female private part)." Kyle told me she was actually really hurt and frustrated, since she had tried to make things right with them. As far as I was concerned, I don’t know what I was more floored by -- how messed up that was or how stupid it was to text something nasty to Kyle about Kyle. Duh.

The reunion was hard for me to watch because I wish I had been there to stop Brandi from criticizing Taylor. She’s been through enough. Taylor's book, whether you like her personally or not, will save lives. So rather than argue about whether she should have written it or how long she should have waited to do so, why doesn’t everyone just read it and see if it can help someone you know?

I have my own views on Game Night but you will have to wait for part three to hear them. Have an awesome week. Please comment good or bad below.

Kim: Don't Mistake My Sadness for Weakness

Kim thinks Brandi and Kyle's fight at poker night had very little to do with her.

Today’s episode started exactly where we left off, back at Eileen’s poker night. I remember just wanting to leave so badly that I just kept on walking and didn’t even see the physical altercation between Brandi and Kyle. I was caught between a rock and a hard place. I mean one is my sister and one is my friend. I wanted to make it right, so I tried to speak to Kyle, but there was so much chaos between her and Brandi. Then the other girls joined in and at that point, I was frustrated and honestly wasn’t feeling well. I just wanted everyone to let me go home! This drama may have been about me at first, but it definitely ended up being about those two and whatever residual animosity they had towards one another from the past.


On the following day, my pain got even worse, so I spent the whole day getting tests done at the doctor’s. Next evening, I was admitted to the hospital. In my last blog post, I mentioned that I had been struggling with bronchitis and pneumonia for weeks. Well, the doctor said I had a fractured rib, ruptured disc, and hiatal hernia, which was caused by the increased pressure from coughing. No wonder I was in so much pain before poker night! I was in the hospital for nine days. But I'm happy to announce that I’m currently healthy and well!
Even though my family and I are going through some tough times right now, I feel stronger than ever because I need to and want to be there for Monty, my daughters, and son. All you moms out there know, we don’t get days off! Although it seems like I have a lot going on, that’s exactly what I love about my life! Planning my daughter’s wedding is the most beautiful thing I’ve ever done. I can’t believe my babies are all grown up, and I could not be more proud. Taking care of Monty has been bittersweet--it’s so painful to see my best friend slipping away, but at the same time, our relationship is stronger than ever. We’re treasuring every moment we have together. Don’t mistake my sadness for weakness. If I were not strong in my sobriety today, I could never do the things I’m doing. Thank you to those who have shared their kind words and support!
Speaking of family, my favorite part of the episode was seeing Yolanda with her son. Oh my goodness, I really related to them, because I’m going through the same thing with my son, Chad. Family dynamics change, and it does get lonely for both Chad and me now that our girls have left the nest. But this is also a special bonding time for us--yes, he’s totally going to have to hang out with his mom more, which both of us don't seem to mind at all! 
XO Kim
