My mother-in-law Estella is so happy with her facelift. Paul really did an incredible job. So many women in Beverly Hills look "pulled" but Estella looks very natural. I love Paul and his bedside manner as well. I thought it was so funny that Estella and Paul were both trying to get me to put Botox between my eyebrows. I have done Botox before. I just don't love doing it. It gives me so much anxiety! I'm convinced that God is going to punish me for being vain and my eyeball is going to fall out or something. I am not a fun patient by any means.
On to Malibu -- Brandi had invited us all out to her friend’s house for a "wine tasting" with belly dancing lessons. We were told to "wear wedges, no heels." When we arrived, the girls were already tipsy and having fun. Brandi made a comment about my husband being "super hot" and said how much he loves me. I said in my interview "easy on the hot husband talk" then I hissed like a cat. That is my sense of humor. I was not offended in any way, shape, or form by Brandi's comment. I honestly found it to be a compliment and took it as such.
I have never, ever left a comment on a show before, but I wanted to let say that good for you for being a good friend to Taylor this episode. Kudos to you on calling things how they are. I think initially you guys were tough on Brandi, but now that you guys have moved forward, every comment u make is still taken as an insult. Her dress with nips showing was completely inappropriate. But hey, if you are going to wear it, accept you may get some ribbing. Come on! I hope you don't start to bite your tongue for saying things EVERYONE is thinking for fear of public backlash. Then, what is the point of doing this if you aren't really showing YOU. I enjoy watching you and Lisa on the show. And I hope Kim is getting well.
Kyle I still really enjoy you on the show - love your humor. What I saw in you this week in your protectiveness over Taylor was really great. I don't really like Taylor (didn't even last year) I know she's going through a lot, but so is most of the cast. So, as a viewer watching her break down gets old and petty, but I did think Dedra did go too far with her that night. Regardless, I loved how you protected her from the cameras in the limo going home - well done. It was apparent to me you were just trying to have a good time with you dancing moves and such and Brandi shouldn't have been offended by that.
You weren't "teasing her" about her nipples, you were making fun of her behind her back. And before you make fun of other people for what you think is tacky, stop with the stripper moves like doing the splits and crawling across the floor.
Ha! Ha! Hysterical blog! You never take responsiblity for your actions. And, hey, you should take your own advice . . . Walk a mile in someone's shoes before passing judgement. You really crack me up. I've never seen anyone in such denial of their own behavior. And lastly, did you notice that you were the only one at the party obsessed with Brandi's breasts? Weird.
Why do you dislike Brandi so much? You said that you were teasing her about her nipples , it came across more like you being very mean and not playful teasing and you constantly do it . I don't think you should blame the moon on your behavior . It's very sad to see a grown woman acting like a mean , jealous teenager.
Kyle, I feel like the person writing these blogs of yours and the person I've been watching this season are not the same people.
And I would like to note that I was dissapointed with how you said over and over again in the limo with Taylor "I'll back you up" when you made a point to say you wouldn't back ANYONE up at Lisa's tea party. You even knew Camille was not in the wrong while en route to Brandi's party and you STILL were taking Taylor's side. I understand Taylor was in a bad state, but you cannot enable people like that, Kyle! I wish you the best going foward, though. XO
No you wouldn't personally go without a bra, but you will continually do splits at inappropriate times!! If there even is an appropriate time for a grown women to do that, knowing she is being filmed. Brandi pegged the nail on the head with you!! Your constant need to be the center of attention is sad. And the fact that you insult and put down those that you worry may take some of your shine, is SO obvious. You guys say you watch yourself and learn. I hope that you have learned something from watching your behavior back, cuz it ain't pretty!
You pointing that laser at Brandi was rude & spiteful.You tried to embarrass her.So what: her nipples were showing in a room full of women?A woman who's comfortable in her own skin wouldn't care less about it.I'm gonna keep reading your blogs to see if you ever take ownership for your petty,envious,attention-seeking behaviors.And you totally made that comment to Camille last year about who'd want her without Kelsey.
I am sure Taylor is a nice person, but how many of us have had marital issues and still been able to hold ourselves together in public? Of course my heart aches for her and her situation, but she has to be strong enough to see what she does to herself, like always playing the victim. Her situation was sad, but still, a woman has to empower herself to improve her life instead of just sitting around and crying about it. Camille said what everyone knows and thinks, and she said it out of concern, and if Taylor didn't want people to know, she should not have said anything. She should also realize that she has a strong support system, when instead she is pushing friends away. I love your spirit and passion, Kyle, but I think you are blinded when it comes to Taylor.
On a happier note, I loved your dance moves and I feel like Brandi is a nice person, but she just doesn't realize that you love to joke around. My friends and I would totally poke fun at each other at a party, so I don't see any issues with your behavior that night.
Kyle, it's not fun making comments about other people unless they believe the comments to be funny as well. Shining a lazer beam on Taylor's nipples was childish and down right mean. How does it make you feel when you do things like that? You must enjoy it, there has got to be some sort of pay off for you to continue berating people. You set Taylor up for a huge fall, all the way over in the limo not once did you try to calm her down or diffuse the situation. Calm and mature people do not have each others back, as there is no need to.
Very sad watching grown women behave this way. I would have kicked the both of you out of my home as well. Very sad, very bad behavior. It was embarrassing to watch.
Kyle, We NOW know what Taylor was going through. However in a close friendship you OWE it to your friend to tell her what you see and how YOU feel. You laugh, blow it off, roll your eyes, stare, whatever but you do not say how YOU feel. You let them think you agree when you don't at all. That is fake, plain and simple. Stand up for yourself, say what you feel, be honest. Taylor has./had a lot of issues. These will take a loooong time to address. No simple fix here. Be there for her by all means but level with her, stop joking around. Serious things here.
Didn't you say during this episode that you're a good belly dancer or something? So your rude behavior during the lesson was not due to insecurities or "awkwardness," but due to just your being, well, rude.
I think you can tease Brandi about her white see-through dress, but do it to her face...not to all her guests behind her back, that is just so high school! Brandi had every right to ask Taylor to leave...she was out of control. You got very offended when she did...I hope you can look back now and know that Brandi was right. Brandi is really trying to be your friend, if its not going to happen let her know, she will get over it, don't keep trying to make her look bad in front of everyone.
Kyle, everyone with any sense of humor knows you like to poke fun and act goofy...most people act silly with their friends! I felt creepy watching Brandi bc I couldn't help but look at her boobs - they are perky, but I don't want to see them! LOL You and DD both were being good friends to Camille and Taylor. I think Taylor shouldn't make snarky comments and should be mature enough to say what she needs to directly to the person. However, I do know how stressful times in our lives make us act crazy! oh, and I think your husband is so very, very HOT...love when he gets camera time!! ;-)
Hi Kyle, Love your blog. I agree with the party I think everyone was feeling good. When you have a bunch of ladies out drinking having fun at a party with dancing and wine tasting sillyness will ensue. No harm in that and the thing about using a laser on Brandi's nips were funny and I dont think you offended the belly dancer she was there for entertainment. I think Taylor did have a mini-breakdown I felt so bad for her horrible thing to feel out of control of your life. Keep being real Kyle.
It's not "teasing" when it's behind their back and not to their face. Normally "teasing" means letting the other person in on the joke, not laughing about them. You're two-faced and rude and it shows in every episode.
You weren't teasing Brandi about her nipples, you were making fun of her to the other guests. As you have done the entire season so far, but always behind someone's back. I'm beginning to wonder who is really the classless one.
Taylor doesn't walk in anyone's shoes before passing judgment. Last season she passed judgment on your sister, this season she's judging Lisa and Camille. If Taylor was so scared of her husband all she had to do was walk out the door instead of blaming Camille. I heard both Camille and Lisa say that she could live with them. Taylor is a trouble maker and crazy. You seem to like that type of person or you just don't see it. Personally, I think you and Taylor are a lot alike.
Your sister had it correct,starting last season.She did not care for Taylor and now we can see why. Please,stop defending her. If she were to bark at you like she has barked at everyone else,well now I think you would go ballistic.
Taylor has played everyone,including you.
Brandi showed real class when you slapped her hand. You are lucky you were not on the receiving end of a back hand.
Oh well,hindsight is 20/20 and no ,blame it on Taylor.
stop feeding into Taylor's drama. it is of her own making. if she hadn't broadcasted all her "abuse" maybe she wouldn't have a reason to be scared of what her husband was going to think. her fear obviously showed that she knew he didn't like her talking about their marital problems. you cant help her if she wont help herself.
I love you Kyle, I'm glad you are with ur friend for better or worse . You rock and thanks for keeping it real
It is very nice to see you come to the defense of Taylor in this episode. I have watched all season and seen the way everyone speculated behind her back as to whether the abuse was real or not. Of course now that Russell has committed suicide the truth is out, but back then non of you knew the full extent of the abuse or the fear that Taylor was living with. I can fully understand where she has been coming from. It may be confusing for you, but when you are living with in the abuse, your fear is totally real. I know because I lived it. I was married to a PREACHER who beat me every day and every one told me to PRAY about it and that I had to STAND BY HIM and a lot of other crap or they would just say "we can't believe that he would do that, he is so good in the church" My two daughters lived up under their beds because they were afraid of making him mad and then he would hit me. Yes, it finally came to a head when he caught the couch on fire around me, with my 7 year old daughter standing there screaming and begging him to stop while trying to put my shoes on because I had just been released from the hospital from having a major surgery. And yes I had him put in jail and got a divorce finally. I see Taylor's fears about everything getting out in the public and Paul finding out. I didn't have a support system either and Taylor saw you ladies as her only outlet. She needed your support hands down without conditions. I know hind sight is always twenty twenty and you see that now and I hope and pray that you all are there for her. My nine year old granddaughter whom I have custody of because my daughter passed away a year ago, has been trying to find a way to reach Taylor and Kennedy and tell them that we know how they are feeling and my little sweety of a granddaughter wants Kennedy to know that she knows what it is like to lose a parent and that every night she tells God to tell her mom that she loves and misses her and that Kennedy can do that for her dad too and if Kennedy needs a friend that knows how she feels, she would be her friend even if they are 4 years apart. I don't know how to reach Taylor but Kyle, if you could pass this information along and give Taylor my email address, I would really appreciate. I am not a star stalker or anything like that. I am just a 54 yr old grandmother who has been abused and has a little granddaughter who has lost a parent and we would like to offer some support.
Sorry, Kyle... but I think you are in for another thrashing this week. After watching Camille torture you last season, I was ready to forgive Game night and move on but every week I see you saying or doing something mean. I see Camille has changed this year for the better and I love her...
I saw season 2 first and you and Taylor were my faves originally and I didn't care for Lisa. After Game Night, I bought Season 1 to see what Kim and Camille were talking about what happened the season before.
Wow.. a few episodes later and I feel so different. Taylor was awful to your sister last season, how you missed that, I will never know. She was even nasty to her at the Reunion, threatening to say things on camera about Kim. NASTY! Not that I care for Kim either... now that is someone delusional and childish. Taylor cares about 2 things, fame and fortune. I believe that is why such an educated person with so many options would stay with someone they are so scared of... But she blames Camille... that Camille could have put her in danger... BS!!!!! Taylor put herself there and her child. She didn't want to risk losing her money machine.
I watched WWHL with Taylor, she can't blog because of everything she has been through, but she can go on this show and pimp her book. I will only buy it if 100% of the profits go to her "charity" for battered women. Prove it to us Taylor! Oh, and she is celebrating NYE on tv... Party on, Taylor! She's a kind person? Holding a grudge against Brandi? Not buying her kindness.
Brandi, while being a free spirit has outclassed nearly every one of you. I wanted to like Dana, but she is so far up in yours and Kim's rearends, she forgets her manners to Brandi.
Camille and Lisa are the front runners and Brandi isn't far behind. The rest of you...????
I don't want to walk in your shoes, in Taylor's even less. Also, I suspect those shoes were not put on your foot by Spanish inquisition, but you put them on you yourself. So take some responsibility, as Taylor should take some for her own life.
Don't underestimate viewers personal experience or empathy - there were a lot of negative comments on Taylor's behavior from victims of DV, who were in much worse situation then Taylor. So, please, just don't go there...
I don't want yours or Taylor's shoes. I would like some consistency, decency and credibility from all of you. This season was brutal to watch.
What Taylor is doing is not healthy for anybody. Not for Taylor, not even for cast and crew of RHOBH (I guess you all suffer still from shock of what happened aware of it or not) - and most of all for Russel's 3 children.
So, forget about shoes, get your friend off the show, and TV and media in general and get her some serious help. (IMO some reading on Borderline personality disorder and diverse sub-types - could help you dealing with Taylor)
Despite of how I sometimes dislike your behavior, or disagree with your words, for some reason I still like you. Don't know why :p
Wish you and your lovely family happy holidays
It would be one things to tease Brandi about her nipples showing. But you came across as cruel, talking and laughing about her behind her back with the other girls.
And you didn't address in your blog how you slapped Brandi's hand when she told Taylor she had to leave. Brandi absolutely did the right thing telling Taylor to go. Taylor had become completely unhinged and nothing was calming her down. It was scary to watch. She never should have left the house in the first place and gone to a party. As her friend, you should have encouraged her to stay home, especially if she felt so hostile toward Camille. Brandi knew she needed to end the drama fast, as it was rapidly spinning out of control and this wasn't even her house! If I had been in her place, I would have asked Taylor to leave too.
This time Kim wasn't there, so you can't blame her for your bad behavior, eh?!
yea right, kyle you are so full of it. you never ever ever ever own your crap, it's so annoying. stop down playing your disrespect towards brandi, stevie wonder could see your so jealous of her. your always smiling in her face and 2 seconds later cutting her down behind her back. thats very 2 faced and fake.
When no one wants to be accountable for their actions- then blame the moon. Real mature. I don't need to walk in Taylor shoes to see what a troublemaker she is. In season 1 you had peacefully concluded a disagreement with Camille, then Taylor goes to talk to her, and then in less than an hour Camille is furious at you! Kim knew exactly what was up but you refused to believe her and blamed KIm for not having your back while Taylor knew exactly what she had done. LIsa called her out on it and that is why she started hating Lisa. When Kim called her out on her manipulation she started hating KIm. Now that Camille called her out on what we are supposed to believe is the "truth" about the supposed abuse , she hates Camille. We are so fed up watching The Taylor drama show and hope this is her last season. She needs to take care of her daughter instead of writing a fictional book less than 6 months of her ex-husband being dead. She got scared about what Camille said because her lies were being exposed. That is the only reason she avoided drama at Adrienne's hoof party cuz Russell was there. She was so nervous that night. You need to stop stirring the pot and being more accountable for your deplorable behaviour. How embarassing for your family. Maybe Lisa should give you guys lessons on class.
It's funny how you make light of "teasing Brandi". Had you said it to her directly it would of been funny, but you talked behind her back. Not funny. Grow up Kyle. You continue to be the insecure, self absorbed mean girl. It's also funny how you didn't even address slapping Brandi's hand. I just don't get you this season.
It seems to me that Kyle spends a lot of time having to explain her "humor" every week and it's getting old. Hopefully she can self reflect after watching herself on the show and make needed changes rather than bore us with the dreaded drawn out explanations on how everyone takes her wrong. She is clearly narcissistic.
I really enjoy watching the show, and you and Lisa are my favorites to watch. Mostly, I enjy watching when you're partying with your family, like the Cinco De Mayo party this episode. It's so much better and less uncomfortable than watching when someone has a meltdown on TV like Taylor did. As for your talking about Brandi's nipples, yes, they were that obvious. But, maybe next time think about this: when you just settled the dust of an argument with someone, like the game night situation, if you're gonna make a joke about someone - joke WITH them. It's when you make the joke in a whispered aside to a friend about someone else that it seems catty and rude. :)
Ok I am not sure you understand the concept of teasing someone. When you tease/joke with someone it is usually TO THEIR FACE, not behind their back. When you make these comments behind their backs, they aren't in on the joke and makes them catty comments.
Please tell me this is the last party you will be doing the splits at. You talk about Brandi but yet you are lifting your leg and doing the splits at an engagement party and instead of trying to do the belly dancing you took over with your own dance AND splits.
You and your fans talk about how you are real and tell it like it is, but criticize others when they do the same. You have become very hypocritical this year
So we all see that Taylor is going through a hard time.... she's going thru divorce, husband beats her, family is getting sued, etc. But it does not give her any rights to act however she wants. She still is accountable for her actions... and to let it all out on Camille, who is also going thru a hard time herself, is selfish.
Kyle, you are still one of my favorites :) Humor is my way of dealing with EVERYTHING. I would have had to mention someones nipples staring in my face too.
Kyle, After watching this past episode and reading your blog, I'm just not really seeing your point of view here. While it is true that Brandi's nipples could be seen through her dress, it was in poor taste to sit there and talk about her behind her back. No you were not just teasing her, you weren't even talking to her directly, rather talking about her like a bully does in high school. Well, if all you want to do is make people laugh, do it at your own expense, not at the expense of others' feelings. It is no secret you don't like her and the fact that you try to pull this off as teasing just doesn't fly. It's bully mentality and while you were my favoite on the show, I don't think so much now. You tend to be the bully quit a bit. Leave Brandi alone for once, geesh. After all you were a GUEST at her party! Onto Taylor. I feel so sorry for her and her situation. I have always liked watching Taylor on the show and still do.. I just don't understand why the camera'e keep rolling when it is obvious she was having a breakdown - let the poor girl have some privacy.. Yes, I know it is a reality show and it's all about ratings.. how sad.. It seems like you are playing both sides of the fence here and it really shows. Too bad because Taylor needs a true friend... And, I don't doubt that you are off the scenes.. it just doesn't look that way on the show.
Your are absolutely right, we have never met Taylor. However, if you put your life out there for the whole world to see, we as the viewers, have the right to have our opinions. If you don't want to be judged, get out of infront of the camera.
Kyle, I wouldn't want to walk around a table in Taylor's shoes. I have compassion for her as I would anyone with the loss of her husband, but must say have lost much respect for her when she accepted hosting a new year's eve party. Yes, life is for the living, but under the circumstances I would never choose to party like a rock star a few months after such a devasting event. I think I can safely say that you would want to spend that evening with your children, family and/or close friends. Who I really really feel so sorry for is poor Kennedy....she is an only child and will be spending the holiday all alone with a nanny. I know I'm being judgmental but its just so sad to me.
Funny how you're allowed to "tease" Brandi and anyone else whenever and however you want, but no one is even allowed to defend themselves against you or your sister. Wow. If you define yourself as a friend, I'd hate to see how you define enemy.
What's with doing a split on a table at Lisa's party? And then again at Brandi's party? I'd say Brandi's outfit is much classier than Kyle's behavior.
God won't judge you for vanity nearly as much as a mean spirit. You weren't 'teasing' Brandi. You were belittling her. And you know it. As for the 'hot husband' comment and response, you've shown your insecurities about your husband before. Since you've made it clear that you put your children way before him - coupled with your mean spirit - I'm surprised he puts up with you. You are a very sad person.
Kyle, I get that Taylor was in a fragile, emotional state. But what is your excuse? You have been catty all season long. You were my favorite last season, but I'm starting to think that the problem isn't Kim, Camille or even Brandi, but you. Just because you have an opinion about someone doesn't mean that it's right to share it with everyone. I get that you are a passionate woman, but you need to check yourself.
Kyle - You are a good friend to Taylor but don't throw Camille under the bus. Taylor was very unstable and likely needed to be confronted about the big lie that was her life. Plus I find it interesting that you freely comment about the abuse allegations in interviews and to other people, but not to Taylor. Lisa spoke up as well. So Camille was not the only person talking about the situation on camera. At least you observed in the limo that Taylor's reaction and behavior that night was about more than what Camille had done. As for your sister Kim, I hope she is in a good place and getting the help and support she needs. God bless us all!
I really believe that Taylor was afraid remember the scene in the limo with Russell and he asked what the fight at the tea party was about? Look at Taylor's face and how she quickly interrupts so Kyle got the message not to say ANYTHING this woman suffered behind closed doors for so long. GOD BLESS her and her little baby
Kyle I have walked a mile in her shoes as I was in an abusive relationship. For someone who didn't want Russell to find out that she told people about the abuse,she sure dropped enough hints...on camera! You would have to be completely daft not to get it! She also cried about how Camille put her and her daughter in danger...WHAT??? Id say staying in that situation, Taylor put them closer to danger than anyone. I think Taylor married and stayed with him because of money. Taylor is a narcisist, your sister is an addict and you my dear are co dependent!!
You're backtracking, Kyle. Her compliment towards you was repaid by you immaturely making fun of her nipples. You weren't teasing, as you're saying here. You were being catty.
Bottom line: your "sense of humor" comes across as cattiness & jealousy towards Brandi. Brandi was the host and arranged for a pleasant evening of wine and bellydancing, but you took control as the center of attention, as usual, and disrespected the woman teaching. In the background, you could clearly see the other ladies (including Adrienne) trying to really learn and have fun as you were all over the place.
I liked you in the beginning of the 1st season, but you've quickly gone downhill, starting with your treatment of your sister.
And "backing up" Taylor was bull. You said yourself in your 1-on-1 interviews that Camille wasn't too blame, but you encouraged Taylor when she felt Camille was in the wrong. You KNEW something was wrong with Taylor, but instead of keeping a friendly eye on her, you waited for drama to pop off.
Brandi was 100% in the right by asking Taylor to leave. 100%! Many of the viewers were so happy that Brandi saw what WE did- which is that Taylor started the mess by badmouthing Camille a mere 2 feet away from her!! Bull! As far as Camille saying what she did on camera, I'm sure Bravo would NOT have aired it if she had told them not to- for the safety of herself and her child. So that's bull. She's just ticked that it was said out loud.
No one deserves abuse. But you have to admit that Taylor started the mess that night. Period.
Kyle, I think Brandi always has something to say and it's always negative when it comes to you. So don't even worry about that. Brandi should have had some clue that that sheer white see thru outfit was inappropriate. I thought you shook it up and made the party fun. It looked like you ALL were enjoying yourselves so I don't know what her issue was. As far as Taylor is concerned you are right I don't know her and I've not walked a mile in her shoes but, if she felt that way knowing Camille would be at the party maybe she should have stayed home. I mean if I had a beef with someone and we hadn't had a chance to talk it over I would either reach out to them before the event or skip it. Apparently, she felt very strongly so why even put herself in that situation? She was totally out of line and looked like a lunatic yelling it's not fair like a school girl. I understand her pain and everything she's been through but, that doesn't excuse her bad behavior period! Well wishes to Kim as well I absolutely love her...
