All in All

Kyle shares her busy holiday schedule, and how shocked she was by Kim's emotional chat.

I am so sorry my blog is late. I have been crazy with end of the year school stuff with my kids, holiday shopping/wrapping, and press for my book that comes out December 27th (see the trailer here)! I'm writing this blog from my blackberry while sitting in the airport. As a woman, I can multitask with the best of 'em. After wrapping gifts all day and packing for myself and my kids for our trip, I said to my husband, "If Santa were a woman he wouldn't need elves".

Last week we watched as all the girls took off for Vegas. I wanted to go to Vegas but couldn't leave for the weekend. On top of planning the White Party and my book cover shoot, my girls were flower girls in a good friend’s wedding.

I always love going to Vegas. I suppose it was best, since I avoided having to choose between going with Adrienne or Lisa. Phew!!! I will say, both groups looked like they were having fun.

Back home, Faye and I went shopping with Glenn Schneider, my party planner. I could not throw a party without the two of them. Every year, we go through the same thing. . .arguing back and forth about what looks best, who’s taste is best, and where everything should be placed for the best party possible. We always have fun doing it. When Faye dropped the chandelier, I was so embarrassed! In typical Faye fashion, she didn't let it faze her. Not even an "oopsie."

My book cover shoot was so much fun. We spent the entire day playing. I'm happy the final cover captured who I am. The book was a lot more work than I anticipated. Sleepless nights is one thing but the rewrites were killer! I had to keep going over it and over it again. I wanted to share personal stories, pictures (not all glamorous ones I might add), and offer advice on things that have worked for me... How to find the right man and keep him, beauty, fashion, hair care, and makeup tips. It really was a great experience all in all.

Later in the episode, I was shopping with my mother-in-law Estella and kids when I bumped into my sister Kim. When we first sat down to talk, I had no idea what she was going to say. As she started speaking, I realized just how bad of a place my sister was in. It is painful for me to see my sister like that. In watching the episode, I could not stop crying. I love my sister and want to see her happy with someone that will love her and take care of her. My sister has had a difficult time lately and it shows so much in that scene. It's hard sharing such private moments like that. My sister is in a much better place now than she was then. I love her so much and am proud of her.

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday! XO, Kyle
