Kicking Up the Dust

Kyle chronicles the ups and downs of her relationship with Brandi.

This week we get a peek into more of the planning Pandora's wedding. Pandora's wedding planner is hilarious. He certainly is entertaining! I have to say watching Lisa and Pandora plan her big day makes me excited about being able to do that one day too. On a smaller scale. . .

Seeing Taylor and Russell together is hard for me to watch knowing what I know now. At that time, it was hard hearing stories from Taylor and then spending time with Russell. But now, every time I see him, I think of Kennedy. It is so sad. My heart goes out to Taylor, Kennedy, and Russell's family.

Taylor had asked me to join her and Brandi for manicures. On my way there, I called Taylor who told me she was at lunch with Lisa and couldn't make it. I felt awkward to be meeting Brandi. We have gotten past our differences but this was the first time we spent together one-on-one. I actually like Brandi alone. I felt terrible for her after hearing how her husband left her after so many years together and having two children. I can only imagine how painful that must have been.

When we first started hearing about Brandi, we had heard she was Cedric's friend. Obviously after what Lisa had been through with Cedric, it left all of us with a negative feeling toward Brandi. Some of us showed it more than others. I wish I had not been so defensive when I first met her. We had the impression that she was coming in on the attack because of her friendship with Cedric. Lisa was especially unsettled about it. However, it was me that acted upon my feelings. We all had heard he was living with her as her "manny." Only later did we find out he was not her manny nor were they that close -- just "friendly." I regret my defensiveness. Next week our relationship takes another "blow". . .It's so hard watching this after we have made peace. Now it's time to kick the dust up again! That is the hardest part of doing a show like this.

Of course, I have to address Brandi's suggestion for entertainment at her proposed party. My face spoke volumes! I really was shocked. I think I am much more of a prude than I realized. Or maybe it's because I am a mom of four daughters . I don't really know. However, I knew her suggestion wouldn't go over well, but wasn't sure how to tell her without offending her. I think it's funny that these things don't embarrass her. I know if I went to a party and that was the entertainment I would be mortified! Maybe she was mortified that I did the splits at her get together in next week's episode.

Adrienne's Fashion show: In true Maloof style, Adrienne put on a beautiful fashion show in her backyard. Her house looked amazing and everyone was excited for her. I joked about being there for the debut of Adrienne's shoe line, but "where are the shoes?" That was because I was misinformed. At the time, I didn't know it was also a clothing fashion show and the charity Step Up was included in the evening.

Later, we all saw a sample of her "limited edition" shoe. It really looks like Cinderella's slipper. Gorgeous. I know Adrienne's shoe line is going to be a huge success!

Then there was the tension between Lisa and Adrienne. I think this is a case of "there is more than meets the eye". . . In watching a show like this , you must keep in mind that things happen off camera as well. We can't always explain everything that happens that the camera didn't see. Sooo, let's not be too quick to judge. Just keep watching!

Have a great week!
XO, Kyle

Lisa R.: I Am Horrified By the Way Kim Treats Kyle

Lisa R. talks about what drove her to throw the glass.

Have you ever put a bunch of ingredients in the blender, hit power on only to realize that you forgot to put the lid on, so it sprays everywhere? This is exactly how my brain feels after this episode. There has been so much going on and so much building up that finally everything has just exploded into a million pieces.

What a relief it was to see Eileen and Lisa V. arrive in Amsterdam. It was only a tiny calm before the storm, though, because sh-- hit the fan almost immediately. As I watch the show today, there are so many little details and nuances that I'd forgotten in the months since the trip.

As soon as we sat down for dinner, you can see how aggressive and extremely discontent Kim Richards was sitting among us, waiting for the slightest thing to provoke her anger. She looked at whoever was speaking with disdain, just waiting to challenge them. Yolanda was a gracious hostess, though, and tried to make the best of what appeared to be a rocky beginning to the night. I, for one, found Yolanda's suggestion that we each discuss something in our lives that has moved us deeply to be heartfelt and touching.

As I spoke of my own sister dying at age 21 of a sleeping pill and alcohol overdose when I was six years old, I really allowed myself to become vulnerable among these women. I trusted each of them to let me tell my story and perhaps allow my words to be a bonding experience, so I took the opportunity to once again apologize to Kim for overstepping a boundary of hers. Had I known that sharing a story so deeply rooted inside of me would cause Kim to lash out at Eileen, Kyle, and myself, I would have never opened my mouth and allowed us to be left open to her uncontrollable anger and spiteful words.

The insults she continued to hurl at Eileen were terribly disgusting and hurtful. To sit there and insult her physical appearance, call her a “beast,” and tell her to shut her f---ing mouth was just beyond. I mean, even to this day, all I can do is stare in wide-eyed horror and shake my head in disgust. As for Kyle, I wouldn’t presume to get in the middle of family matters, but I am horrified by the way Kim treats her. I can only hope they find a way to settle their differences because this is just so NOT OK.

I'm just glad that I didn't strangle her on the spot, mainly because I hear the food in jail sucks and orange is not my best color! 

Lisa Rinna

Again it was Yolanda who tried to bring a little dignity and class back into the conversation. Unfortunately, Kim twisted what Yolanda was trying to do into a deflection away from her own behavior and onto my husband and me. Where on earth did that come from? I am fiercely protective of my marriage and my family, and I'll be damned if I let someone as disturbed as she create false rumors about my husband. I think it's plain to see that Kim crossed the line. That was my "DO NOT F--- WITH ME" moment. You have just met my inner gangster! I'm just glad that I didn't strangle her on the spot, mainly because I hear the food in jail sucks and orange is not my best color! The crazy part is Kim has met HH once. One time. And that was the night of the poker party when she had taken one or two or 20 of Monty’s pain pills, so who knows what on earth was going through her mind when she met him or during that car ride from hell.

Look, I own the fact that I allowed myself to be provoked, and it was uncool to break a glass in the restaurant. It was not one of my finest moments, but there's only so much my inner gangster can take before she goes postal. It was all very draining, and by the time we got to our conversation the next morning, I was really over it and not looking for another fight. Besides, we were in Amsterdam for God's sake, and it was beautiful and I wasn't about to let Kim, of all people, ruin my short time there, so I stopped reminding Kim that I had, in fact, come directly to her with my concerns and just took the high road.

Chaos and anger aside, I really loved being in Amsterdam, especially with such a wonderful and generous tour guide as Yolanda. Riding bikes through her quaint village to the windmills was refreshing, cathartic, and good for the soul. The cake eating was pretty funny and then, of course, more drama ensued, which I couldn't get away from fast enough. I was in survival mode already just trying to get through the evening, let alone another five days.

More from Amsterdam next week...
