In Reruns

Kyle explains the trouble with rehashing old arguments and laments her people-pleaser side.

The Reunion, where to begin?? This is a day we all dread. None of us want to go back and discuss issues that have already been resolved or address things in front of the cameras that happened off camera.

The day starts off with all of us happy but nervous. We are laughing, joking around, and running back and forth to see each other as we are getting ready. Then comes the dreaded call. . ."They're ready for you." It feels like the walk to the electric chair. OK, slight exaggeration but it's not fun.

Andy tells us where to sit and we take our seats. At first it's fun, and we are having a pretty good time. Then the hard questions come. We are expected to answer honestly. It's not always easy. Many times I've wanted to say "May I be excused?"

When we addressed the stuff that had been going on off camera between Lisa and I, I was not trying to be hurtful, just honest. I was upset that she had said one thing to my face about doing the splits at Pandora's engagement party and then changed her tune. I knew it was to get back at me for my "maybe she preys on the weak people" comment. Lisa knows my personality and knows I've been known to do crazier stuff than the splits without cameras around just to make my friends laugh. That is who I am. Everyone there, including Lisa, had known I was hurt by that. I would have felt like a hypocrite if I had not been honest about it. I should have chosen my words more carefully during that conversation with Taylor when I made that comment that upset Lisa. I would have preferred if we had just handled the issue alone, without cameras, which we had done and gotten past. However, during the reunion these issues are brought up again. Then we have to relive them over and over. Then just when you think you're past it. . .reruns!

 

When Andy asked me what was going on between Adrienne and Lisa I was extremely uncomfortable. I am friends with both of them! I think a lot of people think I am only close with Lisa, however, Mauricio and I are also close with Adrienne and Paul (as well as the rest of the ladies) In addition to that, Adrienne has been very kind to my sister Kim during a very difficult time in her life.

As Lisa and Adrienne started to get into it, I felt awful. There were many times I wanted to chime in and didn't because of the fact that they are both my friends. How could I defend one and not the other? I also know that these two women are strong and can hold their own. The people pleaser in me (not a good trait or one that I am proud of) didn't want either one of them to be upset with me. So I stayed out of it. Most of us did. This argument was a long time coming, and I had not been involved with any of their issues. However, when the day was finished, I felt bad about not speaking up at certain times.

Clearly, I would have my own battles to fight. . .

When Brandi came in we joked about her getting married in Vegas. I had teased her via text about it right after she got married and we had laughed. All was fine between Brandi and me. . .so I thought.

The drama continues next week. . .

Brandi: I'm Always Here For You, Kim

Brandi focuses on the positive this week as this season's RHOBH comes to an end.

Hey Bravo Fans,

Today was a fabulous day--t was my baby Jake’s birthday. We got his favorite Oreo ice cream cake, and for our family celebration, it was perfection. I can’t believe he’s already eight. I had to hold back my tears when I realized I will never again use that number eight candle. #mommymoment

It has been a really exciting week for me. My Sonoma County chardonnay, Unfiltered Blonde, launched for pre-sales this week, and despite it being tax season, the first day alone was a huge success. Thank you! The website is up now at www.unfilteredblonde.com. The creation of the wine was an incredibly long and careful process, and I couldn’t be happier or more proud of my finished product. I’m sure you're all as excited as me that this week was the FINALE episode of BATSH-- crazy RHOBH reunion. 

I could talk about the she said, she said, she said… but let’s not and pretend we did. It’s been a long season, kind of centering on one night that really isn’t worth the attention it was given. I’m tired of it, it happened several months ago, I’m sure you’re tired of it. You know why? Because it’s old news and in the PAST! 

Eileen, your house is lovely. Sorry I said otherwise for the sake of a laugh. I really like Vincent, he is super cool, your little boy is adorable, you seem like a good stepmom, and I wish you and your family the very best.

Lisa R., I really loved you on my podcast. You made me laugh and rolled with punches. I really enjoyed our interview, and I enjoyed most of the season with you. I think that’s what I’m going to take away and forget about the rest. I think sometimes you make it harder on yourself with your Twitter feed, but I’m choosing not to engage. I really liked a side of you, and you seem to have a beautiful family.

Lisa V., I had a lot of fun with you and Ken. I will always have a special place in my heart for you guys. I wish Ken the best of health and a speedy recovery. 

Kyle, best wishes on you and your family’s endeavors. My sincerest wish is that you and Kim could be as close as you ever were in the near future.

You are a strong chica and I know your family is better for it. 

Brandi Glanville

Kim, love having you as a BFF. I’m always here for you, and I hope you are always here for me. You are a strong chica, and I know your family is better for it. You are hilarious, and I love our funny talks and text-offs. Laughter is the best medicine. I heart you.

Yo, my dear, dear Yo, I will see you soon. I love you, you are so strong and so brave! I know you are going to kick Lyme disease’s ass! Anything you need, just emoji me.

I want to thank all my supporters for always being there for me regarding all of my other endeavors, including my books, podcast, Celebrity Apprentice, app, my t-shirts, and finally my WINE and for allowing me to be me.

Ok guys, this is the big week. This is the Make*A*Wish Los Angeles Walk for Wishes Walkathon. Me and the boys pledged to try to raise $15,000--I have $12,625 so far. We need $2,375 by Friday at midnight, every dollar counts. Thank you!

I heart you all!

Xoxo
