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!
Wow! Well in the begining of this episode I once again was thinking you were right about Brandi, although I really like her but I was uncomfortable watching how she was dressed the whole night and her idea of party themes is beyond anything I would be interested in. But seriously I can't help but feel for her or take her side when I can understand how she feels and put myself in her position. Taylor was clearly screaming at Camille, this was not the time for them to talk it out because Taylor was in no state of mind to communicate on a calm level. The hug Taylor gave Camille at the party looked warm and I actually thought they were going to make up but then when they showed Taylor talking behind Camille's back I knew the night was only going to get worst. This season Taylor has been more dramatic and throwing her issues on her friends and not speaking to the person whos really hurting her. I understand shes going through a lot but so is Camille. You were taking sides and honoestly who are you to put your finger in Brandi's face and then tell her not to ever do that to you? You are not above anyone else! This season I have seen the worst in you and Taylor and it sucks! I loved you last season and completely thought you were awesome and by your actions this season I'm disgusted by the way you've handled yourself. You have been two faced to Brandi and Camille! How about as a friend take a step back and tell Taylor CALM DOWN! Shes lashing out some of her pain and anger onto Camille and Lisa and then her husband ends up threatning to file a lawsuit. Taylor is going back and forth to her husband and her friends starting all this drama! She goes to her friends for emotional support and then she goes to her husband and tells all to him and then he gets upset and threatens a lawsuit against your other friends. Seriously whos side should you take? I would be scared to be in contact or have anything to do with someone who threaten my friends like that. Imagine the same drama knocking on your door? You have too much to risk to be around that type of drama.
This is the 1st time for me to ever comment on a blog. I do believe if anyone of us had a camera following us filming our actions to various situation, we all would be in for a reality check. My prayers for all the ladies is that they use it for their advantage and learn to better themselves. At the end of the day we all will have to answer to God for our actions. I have certainly learned from all the housewives behaviors. It doesn't matter if you are rich or poor financialy, how you treat ppl is what condition your heart is in, and the condition of the heart is always exposed. One thing I've learned in life is that you can't be a good friend to one person if you can't be good to all ppl, Your heart condition is always exposed. I think you have a heart that is good Kyle, but I think with some attention to some areas it could be great. I have to agree with another comment, bringing mediums into your life is allowing evil/false spirits into you and your families lives and can be very dangerous.PLEASE be careful. Best wishes.
Love Love Love ALL you ladies...with that said...Kyle......perhaps you would be a better friend to taylor if you would NOT always say **I have your back**, Perhaps if you were honest with her (as a good friend should be) you would sit her down and make her come clean with you. There was NOTHING Camille did wrong at Lisa's tea party. Is it possible..just possible Taylor has been NOT so truthful about her marriage? I mean it seems Taylor told Russell about the incident at Lisa's house as they were talking about it on the way to the fashion show with Kyle and her husband. I never heard the exact things Camille blurted out ONLY repeating what Taylor had told ALL of you girls. And then Russell is going to sue Camille for what she did say? Give me a break..WHAT DID TAYLOR TELL RUSSELL..that is what I would want to know. Perhaps Taylor was NOT so worried about all the abuse charges she made against Russell (IMO Taylor would NOT be so mad about what she had said to the girls) Perhaps Taylor is scared the girls will find out the truth and perhaps Russell was NOT so abusive as she made him out to be. Just as Camille said...NOT a mark on Taylor's body..NOT one. That does not mean it was not true..I have gone back and watched every episode after the tea party..something just isn't right..of course..IMO again. NOW we all know of Russell's passing. HOW SAD. And I don't blame any of their problems on Bravo/the show. And now Taylor is out and about promoting her book. Anyway...I hope the best for each one of you. Kyle please don't forget your other friends of the show. Give Brandi a chance..you never know but you may enjoy her. Kim may be your sister but she was extremely rude to Brandi without even knowing her and you didn't help matters at all. Having $$$ does NOT mean you have manners and class.. Being a good sister and a good friend is telling Kim the truth...she does own Brandi a **I'm sorrry** just as Brandi has said it to you and to her. And as for Dana...Oh My..she is for who ever she is talking to at the moment. Open your ears and eyes Kyle..so many of us are in your corner kiddo BUT to be a good friend/sister is to tell it like it is and NOT what someone wants to hear.
Watch out for Taylor..I've seen her kind before. She is the type of person that is terribly insecure about herself eventhough outwardly she appears confident, successful and beautiful. She needs to cling to people for the stability in her life she craves. Thats why she choose Russell, tracked him down and got pregnant so he would marry her and take care of her. Now that Russell is no longer available she is looking for the next caretaker and that is you. She needs you to be a dedicated friend so that she can get her stablity fix from you and will chase off any other friends that threatens her exclusive BFF relationship with you. Just look what she did with Kim last year and Lisa this year. It wouldn't surprize me at all if Taylor switched over to Lisa as the BFF because Lisa is far more generous with her "house guests" and already has the mothering instict to care for the poor lost baby bird types. Taylor is a mess and will never get better until she learns to stand alone.
I just find out in my doctors office about russell , Pls be there for Taylor you were the best of freinds....You have the best heart among them all pls dont forget Taylor...
Hi Kyle! I think you are so funny! You have beautiful eyes and a lovely family. I do feel though that you have not been loyal or kind to Liza, who has been a good friend to you. Try not to go into codependant relationships with people that are not well.
Good luck!!! Merry Christmas. :)
Kyle I think you are great, but you do need to stop the back biting. Warning: Getting close to Taylor is only going to cause you problems. AND, there are a lot of silly people out there who are all gung ho for Brandi - so, pay no attention to them - they all use the same wording leading me to believe Brandi has a campaign going on for her friends to write in under different names. She belongs on the housewives of Atlanta because there is absolutely nothing classy about her.
Kyle, you are truly a well-put together, stable woman with a fantastic husband and children. Unfortunately, the times that you are around Kim and Taylor make you look like you are controlling, even though you aren't. Both of those women need to be in some serious counseling and stay away from booze & pills forever. Talk about unstable people! Plus, they both go way overboard with ridiculous, untruthful comments about others. A true sign of insecurity and being unhappy with oneself. Can you push them to get the help they need?
I am really glad Kyle was there for Taylor...People are too harsh on Taylor. People give Taylor a hard time but Ive been through what she has and it is a dangerous situation and it does get you to a bad place and you will never understand it till you've been in her shoes. So i am glad Kyle is the friend she is. With the 'nipple' incident people should take a chill pill...it was not done in a malicious way, She's FUNNY! Kyle has made a big effort with Brandi compared with earlier on so good on her.
Alcohol doesn't change who you are, it simply lowers your inhibitions. It's funny to see how some of you women act when you don't have the ability to think beforehand.
I don't know why Bravo won't post this but I really have to get this out:
Stop blaming editing. Stop blaming Kim. Stop blaming Brandi. Stop blaming Lisa. Stop blaming Taylor. Stop blaming Camille. My God. What came out of Kyle's mouth came out of Kyle's mouth. There is no way that they could have edited the majority of her words in. It's that simple. Kyle shining a laser pointer at Brandi's boobs? That was also her own doing. Stop making excuses for Kyle. Look, I don't think that Kyle is an awful person. She is a wonderful mother and wife. And I really think that she is trying to work on her relationship with Kim, which is admirable. She has a good heart. BUT- even people with good hearts have flaws. We ALL have flaws. And I think that Kyle is jealous of Brandi. I really do. Brandi is only a few years younger than Kyle- yet she looks like she's 25. I think that Kyle is jealous of Brandi's looks EVEN THOUGH she herself is gorgeous! It isn't outrageous for me to have this suspicion, as some of you have suggested; Kyle is always taking jabs at Brandi. I don't know how that isn't obvious to some of you. Take off your rose colored glasses. If someone was making fun of you behind your back, shining laser pointers at your nipples, forcing you to apologize while not apologizing themselves, giving you dirty looks and rolling their eyes, twisting around the story to make it look like they were innocent while you were not-- YOU would not be saying, "Oh, you have such a funny sense of humor." Kyle's jokes are like knives, double edged swords. In fact, I can't even believe some of you are saying that they're entertaining. It's scary that you think taunting someone is funny. What kind of people are you? I assume the kind who like to laugh at the expense of others. That's just horrid. I know that Brandi isn't the most classy person necessarily; she isn't always good at censoring herself when she should. But at least she's nice. She doesn't have a "high and mighty, holier than thou," attitude. She isn't catty. Every time I've seen her cross the line, her attacks have been deserved. I'm sure that most of you would retaliate if someone essentially called you stupid, a bad mother, a slut pig or said that you weren't welcome. Since when are those comments not considered derogatory or mean? Please.
Some of you need to look at both sides of the situation.
I love the family Kyle! The friend and sister Kyle, not so much! You're awesome with your husband and your girls. As far as a sister, you have to have Kim's back no matter what. Recognize the signs when she's not in a good place. Be supportive no matter what decisions she makes i.e. where she chooses to move, with whom she dates. (I hope she gets the help she needs.)
Why is everyone so mean to Taylor? I know she's super dramatic most times but on the flip side, being in an abusive relationship, it's more than physical. It's psychological. Battered women syndrome doesn't allow for them to break away as easily as we on the outside say. When Taylor said Camille was putting her and her daughter in jeopardy I assumed what she told you all in confidence she didn't want to be repeated on camera. That's why she reacted the way she did when Camille put her on blast in front of all the women.
The beach party gone wrong was hard to watch. Dedra, Camille's psycho BFF, kept antagonizing the situation. Brandi should have thrown HER out! One, it wasn't her place. A best friend steps in, when needed, not just because she feels a certain way about the issue. It was on Camille and Taylor to be alone and talk without comments from nosy friends!
I wish you all the best!
I love that long silver sparkle dress you wore on your photoshoot for your book (the one you wore on top of the table). Who is is made by and where can I purchase one?
U were having so much fun & us viewers were enjoying Brandi's party until Taylor, as usual, ruined things AND she doesn't even remember it. I feel, tho, u should have stuck up 4 Camille. Camille asked Taylor at tea party if she wanted all the truth out there and Tylor said yes. Camille only obliged, u should have tried to calm Taylor down. And frankly, i do not understand y u do not say anything unless its edited out. we al know by now that Russell committed suicide. How sad for him that he felt so alone as to do something so tragic. Hanging is not a quick thing and I shudder 2 think about it. My Max fought 4 2 1/2 yrs against cancer to stay alive. daily he struggled w/a horrific pain and knowing he was going to die, so I cannot understand a person that goes to such extremes. life is too short and precious to take ones own life. I don't like Taylor but I feel sad for her. Love and family is what matters, not money and possessions. U know this. We the viewers know that u r joking w/your remarks to the camera, I mean someone needs to keep their sense of humor in all the madness of u gals. U know u r 1 lucky gal w/your family and we are all jealous of Mauricio. i know u werent mad at Brandis remarks. women use to tell me all the time that Max was gorgeous. I loved it cause he was mine! so i know where u r coming from. Anyway, i cant wait for the white party episode and am looking forward to your book coming out. Happy holidays 2 u and your gorgeous family.
Kylie you have been my favorite housewife. You are a great person, friend, sister, mom and wife. I do not like Brandi and think the show would be better off with out her in it. Keep being yourself.
I still think you are very mean to other women, which is maddening to watch, but I can now understand where you are coming from with your sister. You should give others the benefit of the doubt more when you first meet them instead of tearing them down. I'm sorry your sister is going through so much, I hope she finds some peace in her life.
Kyle, you are stunningly beautiful. I am a brunette as well and love your makeup. I love a nude lip and would like to know what you use? The color for the photo shoot was a beautful nude color. Never stop being you!!
I really loved you last season but must admit not as much this season! Let's be HONEST! making fun of your host behind her back is NOT teasing, it's bitching! You should own it and apologize in your blog and not justify your behavior!
As for Taylor, well we all have drama in our lives. She opened that can of worms first. She started saying what everyone was saying behind Lisa's back and Camillie pounced back! The abuse was no secret. Even we (the viewers) could see what Taylor was insinuating in conversations with you all. We could all see your discomfort whenever she spoke about her marriage!
YOU also commented as did other cast members you find it difficult to like Russell when Taylor has told you all stuff about him. Wouldn't that comment also put Taylor in danger?!?
Taylor (even though in a bad situation) started all of this. She was against Lisa for outing her in season 1 when she reignited the fight between you and Camillie. Lisa had YOUR back! And Taylor hated that Lisa picked up on that!
Taylor blamed Lisa for press writing about her troubles, yet she has ran and put her story in print so fast after the suicide!
Come on Kyle, you're backing the wrong horse!
"Yes, I made some comments about Brandi's nipples showing through her dress. How could I not? They were right in my face."
How could I not? You simply shut up.
They were right in my face. Only when you pulled out the laser pointer and stood in front of her! The laser pointer thing was so low class, childish and just plain stupid. It isn't teasing, it was mean.
"Walk a mile in her [Taylor} shoes before paying judgment." Walking in her shoes has the very real possibility of walking into prison for stealing millions from investors, so I'll take a pass on that.
Well, you got one thing right in your blog: your good friend Taylor can certainly be referred to as a "phony."
Kyle, it's one thing to tease a person to their face and quite another to make jabs at them behind their backs. Need I point out that that is NOT teasing. I have to say that at first, I really liked you, but I've been disappointed to see you not only making unkind comments behind other women's backs (which are totally unnecessary), but also supportive of other's unkind remarks. It seems to happen all too often.
You sister is sitting there crying her eyes out & not until the very end of her crying jag did you reach over & hug her...SERIOUSLY? So glad you are not MY sister! (can you say 'judgemental')
Kyle is by FAR favorite on the show! I think she is hilarious and I found that comment about Brandi not wearing a bra was so funny! I mean really though I feel the same way about Brandi, she is not wearing a bra because she is a "free spirit" she wants peoples attention. It is clear from the show that she is desperate for attention from that group of friends! But that is not the right way!
hi Kyle, Hope that Kim is getting along well. We miss seeing her--she's such a sweet gal. It's terrific that she has a sister like you who understands her so well. Please give her an extra big hug from all the folks who share these sentiments!
There's a new year right around the corner, all fresh, with no mistakes in it!
all good wishes!
oiy vay. I'm getting whip-lash watching you on the show - one minute you are sweet and the next you are stabbing others in the back or stirring the pot.
I hope for the best with Kim and that she is getting the help she needs, I think she is a good egg, maybe too nice for the show.
I never write on a blog, but I have to tell you what a nice person you are. You are always there for your family, your friends, and your fans (by writing a book). I don't know how you do it all. Keep being the great lady you are.
Kyle, Last year I really liked you. This year you seem to be catty and snide with the others. You make fun of them right to their faces. I am ashamed of you. Keep out of others lives unless your invited. You are not the perfect one and can treat others like you do.
Kyle I used to be a big fan. But you are soooo jealous. That is why every new girl gets the treatment from you. So what if you can see Brandi's nipples. Not my style either but wouldn't it be nice just to focus on the hard time she's had and welcome her into the group? She pays you a compliment and mentions your husbands name and you think she is after your husband. Women who think every woman wants their husband is lame. WAsn't that your problem with Camille. You have a nice husband. But I am sure it is tiresome for every woman in Beverly Hills to have to prove they aren't going after him before they can be your friend. Lighten up. ANd yeah...you do crave too much attention. Be generous that way too. It is too hard to have to be in relationships with people who are always in competition. Maybe you should ask KIM????
Kyle, at first I thought you and Kim were being too hard on Brandi. Even though I don't agree with being mean to people, I see now where she can draw her own bad attention. I thought she was cruel to Taylor just to fit in with a crowd. I started to realize that she is taking her issues with you out on Taylor. She should have thrown out Camille's friend over Taylor. I don't like Brandi's personality at all. I'm surprised how many people are supportive of her and like her presence on the show. I liked it a lot better without her. I think you have been a good friend to Taylor! I know it's not easy to hold someone else's stress and pain on your shoulders, and it takes a strong person to be able to stick by their side.
Kyle, you are not the person you pretend to be. You stole the house from your sister, make fun of everyone, keep troble going on between everyone, and the list goes on. Case in point, when you asked Lisa if Adriane talked to her about the bridle shower. To me you are like the serpent in the Garden of Eden.
You have your hands full with Kim and her issues. Taylor is NOT your responsibility and you need to say TO Taylor that Camille simply repeated what she-Taylor has said to ALL of you in this cast. Stop enabling her and supporting her while she attacked first Lisa at her tea party and NOW Camille. Taylor needs HELP and NOT telling her the truth and supporting her battles with the others is NOT helping. You talk a great game to the camera in your one on ones; try this honesty WITH the rest of the cast.
Your sister needs serious rehab. After that maybe she will be able to appologize for her awful attitude. She will never earn points in my book until she does.
Kyle, I love your hair, and would love to have mine cut like that. Any way someone can tell me how it is cut?? Thanks
I understand that people should not judge anyone until they walk a mile in their shoes. However, Taylor has put herself on display to be judged! Also, I am completely baffled how someone like you can be so duped by an individual like Taylor. I don't think there is any need to go into the list of reasons why a viewer might consider her a phony. There are many reasons that are not being brought up on the show that would also lead people to believe that Taylor Armstrong is not credible. It is puzzling to me that you have allowed someone like this to become close to you. Strange.
I was in an abusive marriage before I was strong enough to get out. My son is the reason I finally got the strength to get out. If Taylor was so worried her daughter could get hurt, I find it hard to believe she didn’t leave Russell. If her friends believed Taylor’s story why didn’t they push this issue for Kennedy’s safety if not Taylor’s? She had more resources than I had or most women in these situations have. Lisa has offered her home and assistance. I find many of Taylor’s actions and statements questionable for a woman who is truly in that situation. Her comments in interviews after Russell’s death did not help. What I believe is not important. The only truth that is important is that Taylor is a mess and I wish for her sake and her daughters that she will focus on getting herself healthy and strong. I pray that Kennedy grows up to be a healthy strong and independent woman who feels loved in this world. She has had a very rough beginning. God bless her.
Kyle, you were my favorite housewife when the show began, and you still are! I love watching you and your beautiful family.......Portia is absolutely adorable! Your hair is so beautiful. I look forward to watching you each week.
Ignore the haters, Kyle! Your "true colors" are hilarious. Who cares if you got carried away protecting your friend or your sister...we've all been there.
Kyle, you should be VERY CAREFUL with those Saence meetings. In all seriousness, in the Bible, God warns us about NOT trying to communicate with spirits. Unfortunately, you have now exposed yourself, your children and your husband to evil spirits. Seek spiritual guidance on this, please! Next time Kim tells you it's against her 'religion' you might be a little more mature and ask her to explain what she means......believe me when I tell you ~ she knows of what she speaks! .
.Why haven't you addressed why you smacked Brandy's hand away from Taylor? That was outrageous!!!! .
I feel sorry for Taylor but I am so over her and her dramatics. Taylor acts as if it is Camille's fault she is in the position she is in. Camille did nothing wrong. Now DD was as out of control as Taylor that night. These scenes are so terrible I cannot watch reruns.
kyle- i caught on right away that kim's boyfriend was not good for her at all. having to keep a relationship a secret is never a good sign. i have sisters myself and we still go through hating each others husbands/boyfriends. you were right in letting kim go through this realtionship with your support even though it hurt you to watch. that's what sisters have to do sometimes. you are a really good sister to kim and she is lucky to have you there to support her.
Kyle...teasing someone in their face....as friends do...and joking behind their back to others so that they are not in on the joke....is not cute. I know you grew up in the limelight and hollywood is alot about being fake, but in the "real world" of girlfriends and friends....it ain't cool...its being a "mean girl". As I always say, how would you feel if someone did that to your daughters.....Brandi was amongst friends...I go braless in my house amongst GIRLFRIENDS....
Hi Kyle I loved how you looked for your book cover shoot. Don't know why you don't always part your hair on the side like you did for the pictures. You look better than when you part your hair down the middle.
