Blame It on the Moon

Kyle is convinced that a full moon must have been at play for the beach party to have gone so wrong.

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.

Brandi's friend started giving us belly dancing lessons. I felt so awkward doing belly dancing (which did not come naturally to me). I am known for joking around and acting "goofy" so I decided to do some of my ridiculous "dance" moves to make my friends laugh. It's a running joke among my friends and I. Years ago I did ballet moves (never taken ballet in my life), then it was yoga, and now I have settled on the splits. Who knows what's next?!

Yes, I made some comments about Brandi's nipples showing through her dress. How could I not? They were right in my face. I think that if you wear a dress that you can see your breasts through, you must want them noticed. I personally wouldn't do that, but I get that Brandi is more of a free spirit. That doesn't mean I can't tease her about it.

The night suddenly shifted from being silly and fun to a complete nightmare. Taylor could not let go of her resentment toward Camille. Taylor was afraid of Russell finding out what she had told all of us what had gone on in their marriage and that it was repeated in front of the cameras. She was scared. Too much alcohol played a big factor in the evening as well. Dedra came to Camille's defense, as a best friend should. Dedra is a great girl, and this evening was very out of character for her. Emotions were running high. I'm convinced there was a full moon that night. I was in shock watching all of it. It was a nightmare. I remember Linda Thompson yelling "Look at the ocean! It's going to be here long after we're all gone." I was thinking, "I get that you're trying to diffuse the situation, but that ain't gonna cut it."

I remember Linda Thompson yelling "Look at the ocean! It's going to be here long after we're all gone." I was thinking, "I get that you're trying to diffuse the situation, but that ain't gonna cut it."

In the limo ride home, I was overwhelmed with sadness for Taylor. There was so much we knew, but even more we didn't.

In watching this, you may think Taylor is crazy, a trouble-maker, a phony. . . Whatever it is you may be thinking, please remember, you have never met Taylor. She really is a kind person. She may have her issues, but she never wanted to hurt anyone. Walk a mile in her shoes before passing judgment. . .

Looking forward to a fun episode next week. We need it after this last one! Have a beautiful week!

XO, KYLE

Lisa R Reflects on That Bittersweet Episode

Lisa Rinna discusses the difficulties of becoming the caretaker for her parents and missing Kyle's BBQ.

What an emotional and bittersweet episode for me! My family means so much to me and to recently come to the realization that we are at the point in our lives where I am now the caretaker, rather than my mom and dad, is a hard one. Let me give you a little backstory on my dear parents, Frank and Lois. . .

Last November, my mom had a stroke and was in the hospital for three weeks, followed by outpatient care. This came as a devastating shock for us because my mom has always been in good health, incredibly vibrant and full of life since she worked and played tennis up until the day she had her stroke at 85. So, for her to not remember anything or speak incoherently was really life changing for everyone. My dad, being 92 years old himself, is on oxygen full-time and has relied on my mom to take care of him for some years now. With both of them needing round-the-clock care, my sister and I were faced with the very difficult decision of what to do. Hearing my dad tell us that "Where I am now isn't home. It's only where I sleeps at night," still brings tears to my eyes. How heartbreaking to know he feels this way. I realize there are many of you out there that can also relate to these difficult decisions we have to make as our parents age and their health fails them.

My mom made it very clear that she didn't want someone else living in their house with them, so the decision was made to move into the assisted care facility they live in now. In hopes of mom getting better, we didn't put the house up for sale right away, but as time passed, we realized the days of mom and dad being able to live in their own home were gone, and we put the house on the market this past summer. The house sold quickly, which is what took me up there to collect my childhood items and memories. Standing in our empty home, holding my mom as we both cried while reminiscing about old artwork brought back a flood of old memories I hadn't thought of for many, many years. And, of course, driving around Medford with my girls, saying goodbye to the neighborhood I grew up in was so bittersweet. As I mentioned on the show, I never quite felt like I belonged in the Medford community, but I am so incredibly grateful for the time I spent there because it's hometown charm is what made me who I am today and I wouldn't change a second of it. I really do have wonderful memories full of BBQs and friends and of course, colorful Jell-O salads thanks to my mom!

As you can see, my two girls are a hoot. They are unfiltered and say what's on their mind at any given moment. (I have no idea where they get this from!!!) I just love them for it AND am tortured by it at the same time. It meant the world to have them up there with me during this emotional time. HH was up in Vancouver filming his new show Rush, which meant he couldn't be there, so the comfort of my girls by my side was everything. I think having Delilah and Amelia with me to see and experience this circle of life is an important part of growing up.

I'm also glad you got to see some of the amazing watercolor paintings my dad has painted over the years. Their beauty has brought so many people so much joy and I'm happy that they're hanging up for people to keep on enjoying. He is an exceptional artist, and it's just heartbreaking to know that his shaky hands and failing health won't allow him to continue doing what he loves. He's a special man and I love him dearly.

It is so sad to say goodbye, but I will always have the memories and I feel so lucky to still have my parents only a quick flight and phone call away. I cherish the time I get to spend with them. They are my everything.

Alright, let's talk about what the other girls were up to while I was gone! First of all, I loved the lunch I had with Yolanda and Eileen before I left for Oregon. Such a small world to watch the two of them discuss how they were connected through their kids before actually meeting each other. And then to see Yolanda call Eileen to invite her to Kyle's BBQ made me so happy. I just knew the girls would love her! Oh, and Eileen is now $100 richer because she won that bet Brandi made with her at Kyle's house. Not only was I the original Billie Reed, but I created Billie on Days of Our Lives! Time to pay up, Brandi!

The BBQ at Kyle's house looked so beautiful and fun, I'm really sad to have missed it. Man, is she lucky to have her Ladysitter, Justin. I am not even kidding when I say that I want to steal him away from her. He is fabulous with helping Kyle and I know she knows how lucky she is to have him in her life!

Just when you think you couldn’t love Lisa V's adorable zoo any more than you already do, she introduces you to her gorgeous gay swans, Hanky and Panky. How much more fabulous can you get?

I think it's interesting to see Brandi trying to get some kind of closure with Lisa V. We have to remember that there are consequences to our actions with others. Sometimes we can move on quickly, other times it takes longer and sometimes not at all.

I hope you're all ready for a wonderful and stress free holiday. Take this time to enjoy your family and friends and I will see you back here next week! Sending blessings and love to you and your families!
