I'm On a Boat

BH Producer Dave Rupel discusses the difficulties of filming at sea and answers your questions.

Aloha, readers! I hope you enjoyed our second Hawaiian episode on the beautiful island of Lanai.

NOTE: Next week's episode of the grand re-opening of Lisa's restaurant, Sur, will super-sized, so if you're recording set your devices for 15 minutes longer!

As always, I have to thank our extraordinary crew for capturing all the beauty and drama of this episode. In particular I have to single out our Director of Photography Matt Valentine. He is the reason you see all the beautiful underwater footage when the cast went snorkeling.

I have to also thank our team for working so good on the fly and with the island conditions. When you shoot on a boat, you never know if anyone will experience seasickness. We had both Dramamine and ginger root available for the crew to take, but still we had two people go down for the count. Also, hats off to cameraman Parker Whittemore for shooting from the small, and quite bouncy follow boat. (I know it was bouncy, because that's the boat I rode on.)

The other challenge of the boat day was Kim and Ken oversleeping. The boat had only been booked for a certain time period, so it really had to leave. We had two crews shooting the sailing trip, while the third crew was scheduled to shoot b-roll until our return. But when Kim and Ken missed the bus to the boat, we scrambled to get the crew back and shoot Kim and Ken. It was a big resort where we were staying, so scrambling was easier said than done, but as always our stellar crew pulled it off.

Everyone seems to enjoy photos when I include them, so here are a couple of my favorites.

That's the majority of our cast and crew on the day we departed back to Los Angeles. We knew the season was almost over, so it was fun to get (almost) the entire production crew together for a group shot.

Here is a shot of some of our crew on the flight back from Honolulu, we were all exhausted, so most chose to catch up on some sleep!

Now, on to answer some of your questions.

Q: The number one question I get asked are why don't Taylor and Kim blog?
We encourage all the women to blog because it's a great way to be interactive with the audience. However, with after the difficult years both Taylor and Kim have had, they've had a lot of other things to focus on it was felt better that they didn't.

Q: Ann wants to know if we will get to see Lisa's daughter Pandora's wedding this season?
A: Yes! Pandora'a wedding takes place in Episode 20, our season finale, which will air on Monday, January 23.

Q: Several viewers are still not fully believing Taylor's accusations about Russell.
A: We shot the Season 2 reunion last Thursday, January 5. There was a great deal of discussion about that very subject. Hopefully, all of your questions will be answered when it airs in a few weeks.

Q: HelJ19 wants to know why Kyle would invite Brandi on the Hawaii trip?
A: This may have wound up on the editing room floor, but I know there was a mention of Camille liking Brandi and wanting another single lady on the trip.

Q: Born on the 4th wants to know when the reunion will air and when can they have a preview?
A: Part 1 of the Reunion will air Monday, January 30, and Part 2 will air Monday, February 6. Not sure when the previews will start running, as our editors just started editing the footage today! However, Andy Cohen took some behind-the-scenes flip camera footage that I'm sure will turn up on Bravotv.com.

Q: bchie wants us to add Allison Dubois, Camille's psychic, to the cast.
A: Trust me, the producers love Allison as much as the fans do. If she ever wanted to film with us again, we'd love it! However, Allison does not live in Los Angeles.

That's it for this week! Tune in next week for the grand re-opening of Lisa's expanded restaurant, Sur.

Brandi: Kyle Wants to Help When There's an Audience

Brandi explains why she was trying to get Kim out of Eileen's house.

Newsflash: I'M NOT SOBER, and fantasies are just that--fantasies. I've just about HAD IT with these judgmental women that pretend to be perfect and think they do no wrong. Spa day was fine other than the uncomfortable wine tasting, but I tried to tell some jokes to loosen the mood.


Poker night...Kyle called me and asked me to bring champagne in the car for the ride over to poker night at Eileen's, and we shared one bottle. I generally drink wine, not champagne, and was feeling good. As all of my friends have pointed out to me, it's the third glass that usually takes me to the dark side. Kyle had as much to drink as I did, but it didn't seem to affect her. I guess she must have a really HIGH tolerence. Eileen's house is beautiful on the outside--and it may be a dick thing to say--but creepy on the inside in my opinion. I switched over to white wine, and while there were a few appetizers (one made with kids' frozen mini pancakes and oddly colored salmon), there really wasn't much to eat, and it was dinner time after all.

We sit to learn poker. I'm drunk and hungry, and all these smart women act like it's rocket science. It was ridiculous. Sitting next to Kim, even in my intoxicated state, I see that she isn't herself. I tried to pretend like all was fine but knew that I needed to get her out of there. Kim had been sick for weeks coughing really violently whenever I was around her, and I asked her to go to the doctor, but she said it was just bronchitis. Everyone is noticing Kim isn't herself, and Kyle and Kim go off to the restroom. As Kim came out, she wanted Kyle to leave her alone and to leave. I went over to try and help Kim get the heck out of there. Kim wanted to say goodbye before leaving for some reason, so we went in the kitchen, and I grabbed a slice of pizza, because I was starving. I try to get Kim out of Eileen's house, because it's clear to me that Kyle wants to have this bad situation play out in front of the other ladies. I don't want that to happen, so I try to get Kim to leave. 

If Kyle was so worried and embarrassed about Kim's behavior, then why wouldn't she just let me get Kim home and out of this embarrassing situation? 

Brandi Glanville

Kyle only wants to "help" Kim when Kyle has an audience. In that moment of time, Kim was not in the right state of mind or condition to have any kind of conversation or altercation, yet Kyle persisted, even going as far as getting physical and grabbing me twice, as well as breaking my skin open to keep me from removing Kim from this bad situation. So ask yourself this question: If Kyle was so worried and embarrassed about Kim's behavior, then why wouldn't she just let me get Kim home and out of this embarrassing situation? Even in my intoxicated state, I knew that was the only solution. Kyle, while planes and yachts are nice, if family is everything, how could you treat your sister Kim the way you do?  

Until next time.
