Lisa R Reflects on That Bittersweet Episode

Game Ovah

Episode 7: Bravotv.com's Associate Editor reflects on the end of Game Night and Camille's charity luncheon.

Welcome back to Game Night, dear friends. We return to the living room of Dana's abode and to discussing parenting techniques, drug use, and trailer parks. Let's just dive right in. The rest of the fight pretty much speaks for itself.

Thank God for Taylor, who once again, is the a great mediator. Woman knows when "ENOUGH" is "ENOUGH" and busts up the finger-pointing and the meth mentions to prevent whatever bar room brawl may have unfolded. Frankly, I have no desire to see things come to fisticuffs with this group – particularly when it's two-on-one (though Brandi has height on her side).

At that point, Brandi decides she's going to hobble home, but unfortunately she can't find her crutches. Why is that? Oh right, because Kim hid them. Did anyone else feel like they were watching an episode of Blue's Clues? I was so nervous about where the crutches would turn up. Would they be in the bathroom? Under the pool table? Hidden behind Kim's McCafe? Nope, in the end they were just behind Brandi's chair. Always the last place you look, dear.

Meanwhile, Dana attempts to mend fences with the Richards sisters by offering a "healthy, safe vacay." Have you seen the trips these ladies take Dana? That's rarely the case. Also her tête-à-tête with Kyle about all of them being "in it" together was a true delight. Oh Dana, relax a bit. Let people appreciate you for the giant domino-making woman you are.

As the gang peers out the window waiting for Brandi to pull away, Kim drops a dig at Camille that really made me laugh.

"That was really uncomfortable guys. That was too much," Camille says.

"Now you know what you put us through last year," Kim retorts.

Zing! Kim Richards doesn’t miss a beat! And kudos to Camille for just tossing her side ponytail back and laughing it off. What a champ.

Moving on to the rest of the episode. . .

The Play-by-Play
Next we see Adrienne taking the stroll to the Vanderpump compound to get the full play-by-play from Kyle. There's always something magical about seeing Adrienne trot over to Vanderpump manor, and things didn't get any less delightful once she arrived.

If you can't take war time strategies form Winston Churchill, you might as well take them from Lisa: "We know Kim's had her issues, but that is a low blow. Wouldn't take it. Counterattack completely well-deserved. What a bitch." Sounds like a plan, awaiting further marching orders from General Vanderpump.

The Freshmaker
God bless Kim Richards. Isn't her breath fresh either way -- whether she using breath spray or air freshener? Who cares if it’s more of a sanitized room odor than minty, it’s better than nothing. Deal with it, world.

Unfortunately no amount of spray could freshen up the stale angst of her and Kyle's situation (see what I did there?). As the siblings head out on a road trip, we finally find out just exactly what was meant by the house stealing comment in Season 1. It seems when their mother died, her Palm Desert house was passed to the sisters, and Kim isn't pleased with the way things shook out. Not exactly someone sneaking off with a house in the dark of the night, but stealing in Kim's mind all the same.

Then when the sisters head to lunch, the nitpicking begins. Kim wants to move, but Kyle doesn't particularly approve, and we see that not all is water under the stolen house.

Later, when Kim and Adrienne take a little stroll, Kim opens up about the situation. Even if the sisters can unite against a one-legged enemy, it seems they still have a lot of work to do. Frankly, I'd like Adrienne to keep Kim walking as long as it takes to remedy the situation. Make the block a couple of times, until you find a way to heal that past. You’re both wearing jackets, you can keep trotting until nightfall or far after if that's what it takes.

A tisket, a tasket, a tense charity Easter Basket
The ladies reunite at Camille's charity luncheon and while Camille's is stressing over her speech and Dana is procuring a new fur, Brandi and Kyle are busy ignoring each other.

Tables at those charity events are pretty big, but they're not that big. Poor Lisa attempts to break the ice, but can't find a way except to ask Brandi where she lives. Unfortunately this wasn't the dazzling conversation starter she had hoped and the rest of the luncheon is spent in stony silence, a trend that doesn't seem to continue into next week, when people get very vocal at spa day. . .

Until then, what would you have used as an icebreaker at the luncheon? Asking Brandi about her son's bathroom habits? More discussion of Winston Churchill? Leave your suggestions in the comments.

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
