About Face

Kyle discusses Estella's face lift and her split-skills.

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." Pandora's engagement party! I was so excited for Pandora and Jason as well as Lisa and Ken. I can only imagine how it must feel for your child to be getting married. I have been wanting another baby myself for quite some time now but figure at this point I should just wait for Farrah to have one. I will be so excited when she gets married and has a baby. I want her to take her time and enjoy being young and free, but when she is ready I will be ecstatic!

Isn't Mohamed's house out of control? It truly is spectacular. The party was a very colorful night with camels, snakes, flopping mermaids. . .by the way, WHAT was she doing? I loved watching Camille's face. "Boy, she's really. . .flopping around, huh?" SO funny! This episode made me laugh. which was a welcome change from the last episodes. There were many interesting characters there. I could not believe how much that guy looked like Dave Navarro. I was convinced this was his side job. The lady sliding down the bannister. . .was that the mermaid again? and the lady that calls her "much, much older husband" Daddy. I thought she was part of the entertainment. I think I thought I was too!

Yes, I did the splits on a table at a party. Anyone that knows me knows I love to joke around and have fun. I admit, that was typical Kyle. Would I do that at a "typical" Beverly Hills party? NO, but this was anything BUT. Lisa and I have a similar sense of humor. Even though she was yelling "Kyle, No!" she was laughing. I loved that she said she was saving her splits for Pandora's wedding. I laughed at the end when I said "Where is my husband? I'm going to get in trouble" I am fortunate that my husband likes to see me having fun and lets me be myself. Even if that means doing the splits on a table with "Dave Navarro."

Until next week. . .

Brandi: You Can't Confirm What Didn't Happen

Brandi questions some of the ladies' motives, plus gives an interesting update on her relationship with LeAnn. 

Hey, My Bravoistas!

I’m in my American Airlines' seat 36 hours later, flying back home from NYC, thankful to be on a safe path home. My prayers go out to the families and loved ones of the downed German airliner in the French Alps this morning. I cannot imagine the pain being experienced by these families at this moment, which shockingly has led me to add a new person into my flight prayer today...my children’s stepmom. Don’t get me wrong--not everything is yet copasetic, but my children love her, so she is now in the “flight prayer,” differences aside. Now on a happier RHOBH note, last night’s WWHL with Andy was sooooo fun! No drama for once!

NEWS FLASH! Please watch for my new Sonoma County Chardonnay “Unfiltered Blonde,” to launch in April!

As I look over this past season, all I can say is it’s been an odd one. There were so many fun moments that got lost in the drama and so many weeks of fun you never saw at all. I wish you had, but I'm not in control of everything we get to see. I’d like to remember having fun with Kim “stalking” my now boyfriend J.R. That was such a crazy fun girls' night, Lisa R. being chased by killer bees, Yolanda and her Facetime confusion and meeting her family for the second time this--time in Holland, the Foster Foundation Extravaganza, “singing” at Lisa V.’s birthday party, and Kyle pretending to be a caring sister and owning yachts and planes…haha.
Ok, I’ll behave.

Here we are at the last episode of the season, yet, it seems most are still stuck in the beginning. I wish we weren’t, and I would dearly like to leave “Poker Night” behind. However, one person continues to make it the focal point of every interaction from when it happened and far into the three-part reunion.

This episode opens with Rinna tearing down a swing set, but her home interviews are still about what she perceives as Kim’s issues to be, not the actual touching moment of what the swing set tear-down symbolizes or her own family (I can't wait for her daughters to write their Brooke Shields-style memoir when they are age appropriate). LR says she feels sorry for Kim and cares about Kim and wishes Kim well. The truth is a lot less pretty. Some people have been attacking Kim’s sobriety online this week, but we won’t name names. BTW, Kim is sober and not online. She is busy caring for serious ill family members and driving back and forth to doctors and hospitals and being strong for her family.

Next we see Nicky Hilton’s book signing--sister Paris and mom Kathy Hilton are there. Looks like a great party and congrats to Nicky on her style book. Camille looks gorgeous as usual. Kyle angrily flips her hair, because Kim was wearing a shirt that she carries at “her” shop, but didn’t buy it there...whatever. Then Kyle whispers about her sister Kim to Lisa V. and Camille.
Kyle then tells them she is confused and impatient that Kim hasn’t confronted me over her third-hand Lisa R. gossip. She states Kim WILL be hurt and broken hearted over what “I” said… Kyle seems way too overy excited about that happening, which I find kind creepy. Why would anyone WANT their sister to be hurt or in pain?!

The preparations for Adrienne’s party are in full swing next. Lisa V. is fretting it, Kim is casually discussing the intervention GOSSIP with her makeup artist before the party, I’m getting ready and waiting for my friends and my date.

Adrienne’s party is the big finale of our journey this year. Everyone is there, and Adrienne always excels at events. So here we go. First off, my mind was not on the party at all. My father was recently hospitalized, and I didn’t leave his side for two weeks. It was very serious, but I had to return home to my boys. He was still not conscious, but I needed to get home to run my household--a party was the last place I wanted to be, but I had promised. That’s why I decided to bring the few people that I felt I could depend on in that moment. My friends and J.R. have been there for me during my father’s health scare and over more then a month of hospitalization--that was and is what remains what’s important to me.

The party seems like it was fun for a lot of people who weren’t involved in Kyle and Lisa. R.’s drama. I wish I were one of them, but in a way I was. As much as Kyle relished telling Kim the hurtful gossip she heard from LR, what she wanted to happen didn’t happen. There was no argument between Kim and I. We were happy to see each other. We spoke easily. I was busy worrying about my Dad; she was busy with her family.

What we saw on the finale was an efficient Kim quietly confronting Lisa R., then leaving Lisa R.'s table somewhat amused. Lisa R. couldn’t confirm the veracity of her gossip, because I DIDN’T SAY IT. Thanks again to Bravo for showing the truth in a flashback last week.

So, Kim knew who was who and what was what. The entertainment of the night was provided by Lisa R. going radio silent while Kyle begged for corroboration on her dramatic intervention gossip. Watching Yolanda, Eileen, and Lisa V. urge Lisa R. to support Kyle and verify her hurtful gossip was almost amusing. You can't confirm what didn't happen, can you?

In the end, I left the party early. Why? Not because of a past friendship with Lisa V. It's not her that made me cry--I was crying for my father, my dad! I was in no place to be at a superficial party, discussing a superficial incident with a person who was clearly not a friend, not that night. I said I would show up, and I did. After that, I wanted to be with my real close friends and family. Since this party my dad came out of the ICU and after 2 entire months and after a long stressful time I want to thank Dr. Allen Morris and all the doctors and nurses at Mercy General Hospital of Sacramento for saving my dad's life yet agin for the second time in 15 years. He is doing much better and continuing his hope of a full recovery. I am so thankful to all the people who were there for me and continue to be here for my family and I.

THAT is what life’s about, being with the people who truly love and care about you and the feelings are reciprocated.

As you hear, at the end of the finale, I am wistful, yet, wiser, and I think in a stronger place. I love and loved being there for Kim and being Kim’s friend, and I love that she was, is, and has been here for me. Even more so, I'm grateful and blessed to have Yolanda in my life; she is no bullsh--. Even when suffering herself, she is still so selfless. Yo is very special to me, I love her, she gets me, we have fun together, and I value every moment we spend together. I always will. As for the rest, I hope to share laughs and fun again, maybe tears, but hopefully only joy.

Peace Out. (deuces MFs--JK)
