My mother in law Estella had been considering a facelift. She is 61 years old and looks amazing. I have always been proud that she had never done anything to her face -- very rare around here. When Alexia was a little girl, she asked my mom why so many of her friends looked like cats. We all died laughing! I knew that if Estella was going to have the facelift, there was only one doctor to go to. -- Dr. Paul Nassif. He has an incredible reputation, not only for being a gifted surgeon, but for having an incredible bedside manner. I knew Estella was in good hands. When I first saw her I was shocked, to say the least.
I felt queasy and faint. When I heard her voice I became very emotional. I felt so bad that I reacted that way in front of Paul. Estella was happy and comfortable. She just looked so scary! The reason she looked like that was because of the peel she had done to her face. That is why she had the mesh over her skin. My mother-in-law healed very fast and looks amazing. I am grateful to Paul for taking such great care of her.(Editor's note: check out Paul's thoughts on Estella's surgery.)
Let's move on to the "Awkward Dinner" Yes, it really was that awkward. Taylor and I always laugh and have fun. However Russell was always difficult to get close to. Although always kind and polite to me, it was not easy to get past the things that Taylor shared with us. I am very rarely left speechless, but I honestly didn't know what to say when he started talking about Lisa. He knows we are good friends, and I didn't want this to turn in to "one of those dinners."
I love you Kyle. Not only do I think your beautiful, you are also my favorite on the show. I was very excited to see you and Camille become friends this season. I have to say Brandi was out of line in what she said about your sister but I have to admit, you and your sister kinda fueled the fire on that episode and kind of came across like "mean school girls" Don't be like that. You are too beautiful to look ugly!
Kyle you are fine the way you are. You love your sister and we don't know the dynamics of your relationship. Plus Kim is holding her own anyway. Best of Luck, I wouldn't want my sister to move away either.
I agree with Seattle mama, I love your new house and was also hoping to find out the paint color you used in the living areas.
I can't believe that you aren't able to fathom why Kim would keep her relationship a secret from you for a year. Maybe it was that she IS happy and wanted to continue to be happy without all your pessimistic input. If I had a sister like you I would put LOTS of distance between us too. LET HER BE HAPPY! She has only so many years on this planet to live this life. If she makes mistakes, help her up - but don't constantly nag her to not make any mistakes. As a matter of fact, how about putting some positive energy out there for her? Let her live her own life, make her own mistakes and find her own happiness. Let her talk too much, sing too loud, dance when it's inappropriate. And when she does, be happy for her for gods sakes.
I just wanted to say, yes the "mermaid" was the same girl sliding down the stairs! i noticed that too! in your words "awkward" I love you kyle, but i have to agree with what everyone is saying... i think you tend to favor taylor over Lisa, at times when you should be in favor of Lisa. There are things Lisa see's in Taylor that i also see as a viewer like the night she told Cameilie what kim had said maybe not on purpose but should not have brought it up at all when there was already issues, and just because Lisa is friends with someone on a magazine doesn't mean she gave her a story! but i loved you and the episode so funny!
Kyle, It is really sad to watch you be such a fair-weathered friend to Lisa. She sticks up for you no matter how horrible you are behaving. It is sad you are letting Taylor drag her name through the mud and continue to say nothing!
Why were you crying when Kim told you she was moving in with Ken? Was it because he is not good enough for her (in your mind)?? I don't really think it was because she was moving farther away. Let Kim be Kim and be happy for her; not showing your true feelings the way you did. Good luck to both families.
I love your beautiful new home! Wondering what brand/color paint is in your bedroom and living areas. Such a great neutral color.
A friendship with Taylor isn't worth throwing away or jeopardizing your friendship with Lisa. Lisa is a true, LOYAL, and HONEST friend. Taylor doesn't seem like she can be honest at all. I don't see where she gets off with blaming Lisa for her problems and how everyone sees her. All you had to do was watch last season and EVERYONE knows (not just in Beverly Hills) that she is in an unhappy marriage and that they have money problems. How is any of that Lisa fault? Taylor has NEVER said nice things about Lisa for the very beginning because Lisa is the one lady (although now I would include Brandi in this) that is a straight shooter and not FAKE at all. Taylor knew from the beginning of this show that she would never be able to pull the wool over Lisa eyes and/or not have Lisa confront her honestly about her reality like all the other ladies seem unwilling to do. You should be sticking up more for Lisa if you are a true friend to her. For Taylor to imply that Lisa did something or anything undeservingly to Cedric is a joke. Cedric was a complete loser and user. He got what was coming to him. Karma's a bitch - Taylor should remember that - and so should you Kyle - be more careful of how you choose to be a friend and how you choose your friends. You're one of my favorites - I hope that doesn't change!!! Your daughters are precious!
Kyle, I was one of those bloggers that was disgusted by your and Kim's behavior towards Brandi, but I have to admit I'm warming up again. I appreciate your apology to her but most of all your apology to us. And the fact that you continue to blog and take all the criticism helps show me your remorse. It also tells me Kim and Taylor are cowards for not blogging. Hopefully Kim has been reading these so she's aware her behavior is questionable. And I don't think she's uncomfortable with all the ladies as much as with you. But it shows you care. Watching next weeks previews shows Taylor hasn't changed much from last season. She's still causing (unneccessary) friction with Lisa. And I sure hope you support Lisa like she did for you. Taylor's wrong.
Kyle, You love your sister and you worry about her, we get that. I think your reaction to your mother-in-law's surgery and your sister not moving closer shows that YOU have some issues. You would benefit from some therapy as I don't think you have processed your own mother's death. Seeing Mauricio's mother after the surgery. reminded you of your mother's death. You are also afraid that you are losing Kim. All this revolves around loss issues and you need some help dealing with that. Kim seems very happy and that is a good thing. If it is wrong, she will find out but not for you to say.
Lisa preys on the the weak? Are you serious? Completely overlooked that comment in your blog. Doesn't make it go away. Lisa was geniunely hurt on WWHL and you owe her an explanation and a apology. Shame on you!
Why didn't you stand up for Lisa. She is a true friend and a longstanding friend. Taylor plays the victim all the time - instead of believing the best she chose to see what she wanted to see. You should have stood up for Lisa right from the beginning of this nonsense talk. :(
i really think your a good person but i think when your around kim it brings out the dark side in you because you always have to defend her. kim hasn't been around as of late and you have been alot nicer.but that could also be you after seeing yourself in action trying to clean up your act.....keep it up. it is much more becomming of you. i know this wont be shown because nothing that i have ever writtin has but i just wanted you to know i like the new you........keep it up
Like many others, Kyle was my favorite in the previous seasons. However, watching the way she treated Brandi was absolutely disgusting. I don't know if I'll ever feel about her the way I once did.
It is nice to see that once you have a chance to think things through you own up and work things out. That is a great quality and one that is great role modeling for kids. I was very shocked that Kim said "I don't like her" and you didn't apologize or explain her bad behavior to Brandi. Yes Kim was having a bad day but that was totally inappropriate and there is no excuse making a "newbie" feel so bad. She was at a disadvantage and making her feel unliked and unwanted at a party she was invited to was mean. An explanation was in order, "Kim has a hard time dealing with new people, and she is having a bad day, please don't mind her" and maybe do something to make Brandi feel more welcome. And then Kim hiding her crutches before Brandi even said anything to either one of you, again why would you think that was funny. It is no wonder that Brandi blew up. It was either blow up or break down in tears.
The two of you were acting bitchy and you knew it. You were in protective mode as far as Kim was concerned and you were working hard to make her feel good and have a good time, so maybe you didn't realize how rude you were being to Brandi, but that is the truth. YOU were very rude to her, you both were and your behavior allowed her to come to her own conclusions, right or wrong, your behaviors led her to that conclusion and to act out in hurt and anger.
As far as Pam/Dana is concerned she truly failed as a hostess because her job was to make sure everyone was having a good time and to make sure everyone felt welcome. She was so busy trying to show off and be accepted by the "IN" crowd that she blew it big time. When she heard an objection to having Brandi on your team, she should have switched it up quickly and say "no problem" and maybe even break you and Kim up. SHE should have helped Brandi out of a bad situation, and SHE should have de-escalated the situation, it was her job as hostess, not sit back and watch where it was going then laugh about it. That is what a "mean" girl really is. She is trying way too hard and she is falling on her face.
I like you a lot, Kyle! Your sister was wrong for lying to you for a year. I would be hurt and feel left out! Please don't fight with Lisa over Taylor! Taylor and her millions problems are so not worth it!
Kyle (or anyone else who knows) PLEASE tell me what sunglasses you're wearing when you're on the patio at Kim's house!!!!!
I love Kyle because she is the funniest, prettiest, and most humble of the RHOBH. The others are great, but I adore how she is with her kids and husband.
Kyle, how about apologizing to Brandi for being openly condescending to Brandi when quiz game (your "Let's start with you" comment) started up? How about telling Kim to apologize for her "I don't want her on my team" and "pig slut" comments in front of Brandi/to her face? Please don't be so quick to suggest Brandi apologize unless you and Kim are willing to do likewise.
Kyle I really want to see you stand up for Lisa. She had your back last season, even when your own sister threw you under the bus. Be a good person and show a little loyalty.
I love you on the show! Kyle, you're such a warm and loving person. I like the fact that you joke a lot and live a very light hearted life. You have such loving family and husband. TO ALL THE VIEWERS- try not to take everything SO SERIOUSLY and LITERALLY!! Kyle has a good sense of humor and just trying to be funny, which I love about her.
Why doesn't any of my comments ever show up?? Lol...one day! Anyhow, I soo love Kyle and Kim and would love to see them have their own show along with their other missing in action sister(s)...i think there's three? I love how real they are...the whole teary eyed balcony scene, I cried too even though those were tears filled with history and experience--nothing for someone like me to share a cry with them about, ha! Well, they remind me of my sisters and I, we simply love each other and we have those fights...then we make up and we may fight again but we always protect, love and support each other at the end of the day!
Kyle, the way that you talk to your sister is dramatically different from how you speak with your friends. Try imagining Kim is your friend before you respond emotionally. You are a bully with her and that is no doubt why she kept her relationship and moving plan from you. I believe you want the best for Kim, but you seem to think that means she must follow your direction. Don't question her relationship, support her and celebrate her happiness.
Kyle, you have to admit that if Brandi had done splits on a table you would have said she is living up to her "slut" name. Still haven't forgiven you or gotten over how badly you treat people. But I have to say when I saw you cry when your sister announced she was moving out of state, I saw that you do care for her a lot. I agree with what you didn't say but made obvious on camera, which is that Ken is not right for her and she is likely moving in with him because she's lonely. He just doesn't seem to be in sync with her. She's an elegant lady with a lot of class and has lived the finest lifestyles and now she's with a man who sniffles too much, likes to stand by mailboxes, and who appears a bit rough around the edges. I hope she'll live with him for a while and eventually realize he's not the one and move on. But you need to give her the chance to realize this as it's a part of her own growth, something she never had a chance to do.
Lay off of your sister & let her live her life without your strong opinions. I mean if you're happy, why can't she be? You mother her too much to the point of annoyance. No wonder she doesn't come around especially when you are with your friends, she wants to be her own person.
People sometimes don't realize that its hard to be on TV and pretend they really know you as a person from just an hour a wk on the show. So all the haters out there, STOP hating!!! Kyle seems like a good person and you can tell when she's surrounded by people who loves her.
Have you thought that your sister hid her boyfriend from you, not because she's not happy and not because she is faking it, but because she feared a judgmental reaction from you. And lo and behold! You delivered!
Your reaction to Kum's news is exactly the reason she kept it private. Why in the world would you be so judgemental (& questioning) of her decisions rather than just being happy for her???
Hi Kyle, I have always been a fan of yours. I love your funny personality and your beautiful family. Having said that I am shocked at how you and your sister behaved at game night. You are better than that. Both of you were catty and behaved like mean girls. You were wrong to make comments about Brandies son. Hey lets face it, given who your niece is you have no business commenting about anyones family!! I know Bravo wont post this but it had to be said. See now I sound catty!! I really do like you and your husband and enjoy watching you, but please dont go down that sleazy reality tv road you are better than that!!
Best of Luck
I still love you we are all human and trust me if someone said something about my sister my viper tongue would come out. I didn't think you did anything all that out of line, she said she was going to kill you... I think I was the only one watching.
If Brandi acted like you did at the party, she would never live it down with you. Don't be so judgmental!
I loved that Kyle was so grounded and fair in previous seasons, but the way she and Kim acted toward Brandi was childish and mean and the antithesis of everything I had thought about her. I had always admired her ability to take the high road, but, wow! Very disappointing. And really Kyle, your sister has major emotional problems and you are only enabling her by not recognizing and dealing with them. You don't have to do it on tv, but please consider doing so privately.
Still my favorite and always will be!! Your words may come off harsh to other viewers, but it's the truth. And the truth hurts. I agree with how you've acted towards Brandi because she didn't even know Kim when she made the crystal meth comment. Love how you can have fun at a party, and can still do splits after kids!!!! YOU ROCK!
First off, this IS next week...lol! I totally get what happened when you saw your mil at the hospital. The dinner WAS very awkward, I agree. You did VERY well, especially when Russell brought up Lisa. Bring it up to Lisa, NOT Lisa's closest friend, right?. I am disappointed in Taylor, though, for attending the party. If someone throwing a party has a problem with your husband, you don't attend, and you certainly don't keep it hidden from him. And one last thing. If you can't have fun at a party doing the splits, then it's not a party:)
In the past season, Kyle was one of my favorite housewives. However, after seeing her behavior with Brandi, from the first encounter to the last, I can hardly stand her. The whispering about Brandi with practically every other housewife, within earshot of Brandi, was almost textbook "mean-girl" behavior. Bullying, suicide, etc. The sight of the whole group ganging up on Brandi was sickening. Watching it was like driving past a terrible car accident and not being able to look away. I hope Adrien feels VERY guilty about pushing Brandi to apologize after she has an opportunity to see what really happened at the game night. My God. After what I've seen of the season so far, I'd be perfectly happy to have a season minus Kyle and the rest of her mean-girl gang and adding Brandi.
Kyle don't listen to ALL the haters!!! Not sure why people are so bent out of shape about you dancing at the party. That's what a party is for, DANCING and having FUN! You are still my favorite!!!!
Kyle, you are my favorite BH Housewife ! You seem very down-to -earth which seems like a very hard thing to do in a town full of such extravagance. It's nice to see you all getting along better with Camile as well. I always suspected she had a softer side hidden underneath that defensive false bravado. Even though you seem close to Taylor, I would tread lightly with her. I'm more on the fence about her, like Lisa is. I really believe she enjoys playing the victim and she is not what she appears to be. I know she went through a bad time with Russell's passing, but something isn't ringing true about her.
Thank you for blogging. Although you've received a lot of flack from people in previous blogs (most of which I agree with), the fact that you still write in shows you have humility and confidence in yourself.
I wish we could hear something from Kim...
Love you and your sister. I thought you were funny at the party. I think you and Kim are being gang-up on and slandered. I wish people could see that Brandi is equally to blame for the fight and she definitely owes Kim an apology. It's irritating to me that so many people criticize your behavior on the show, because it is after all TV and is suppose to be entertaining - if you weren't on the show it would NOT be entertaining. I am also soooo glad to see you making such an effort at restoring your relationship with your sis. I think it was that that took the fight with Brandi to the level it got to, because you were defending each other - love it!
