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

Kyle: Kim and I Will Never Agree on This Matter

Kyle clarifies the Kingsley issue and responds to Brandi's most recent accusation. 

I don't want to write this blog. I didn't even want to watch this reunion, to be honest. There. I said it. But here I go....
Let's just dive right into the text message from Lisa Rinna to Kim.
I was very shocked to hear about that text. There is no excuse for that. I believe Lisa R. knows that. I can understand Kim being upset about that. I am sure she was taken aback, as we all were when we heard it. However, I don't think Lisa Rinna is a dangerous person. She just made a really bad choice.


Now onto Amsterdam and the space cake talk. Brandi went after me in Amsterdam regarding the space cake, because she doesn't like me and wanted to deflect from her own behavior once again. This was her big chance to say something about me, calling me a hypocrite for not partaking in the space cake. I have said it before, and I will say it again: I NEVER said I haven't smoked pot. I HAVE. It's just not my thing. I have a lot more fun having a few margaritas. Kim knows that. I would have appreciated her chiming in there. Also, I have NOT eaten a pot brownie or a space cake ever, and my husband had warned me that it would not suit me well, knowing my personality. You cannot gauge exactly what you're ingesting, and it wouldn't be smart. I didn't want to have a bad experience and "freak out," so to speak. Brandi herself wasn't partaking, because of her own reasons (which had to do with her divorce, as she explained), so wouldn't that make her a hypocrite then? WHY did she care if I did or did not choose to? Because she wanted to jump at the chance to make me look bad, since her behavior and her drinking had been front and center. Her drinking was out there, because she puts it out there, and she has nobody to blame but herself. If I HAD chosen to eat a space cake, she would have jumped on that, too. Anything to divert from her own actions which she was comparing to ours. All of us may have a few drinks, but NONE of us behave like her when we drink.
I only address this because it was on television. Her opinion of me is completely irrelevant to me. I only cared, because I am a mother, and her trying to make me out to be something I am not is reckless, as is everything else she does.
Ok. Enough of that. She beat that non-event to death. I think we can move on now.

Now this is the hard part...Kim and I had not spoken since Nov 1st. We both knew the situation with my daughter, Alexia, and Kim's dog, Kingsley, was bound to come up at the reunion. We don't get to pick and choose what we want to talk about.
Alexia had spent the night at Kim's house on Halloween. The next morning, Kingsley bit her. While scary, at first it didn't seem that serious. However, what the first doctor failed to notice was that the tooth had pierced the bone and also broken it. Five days later, we found out that her bone was infected and she needed surgery to clean out the bone. Kim was upset, because I had posted pictures from the hospital. Like I said at the reunion, I NEVER said her dog bit Alexia. Never mentioned her OR her dog. TMZ ended up finding out that it was Kim's dog, and she blamed me, because I posted the pictures from the hospital. I did not do that to hurt my sister in any way or to "get Instagram followers," like she suggested. With all of my family coming and going at the hospital, people were bound to find out and talk.


We were all with Alexia at the hospital trying to distract her and have fun. As any mother would do. We were all trying to make the best out of a bad situation. We invited family and friends to visit and tried to keep her spirits up. In hindsight, I wish I hadn't posted that picture, but I certainly didn't mean to hurt Kim. She posted a picture when she was in the hospital this year. Yolanda and Camille have done so regularly. And where is her responsibility in all of this? However, I do feel bad about what it has led to. And I've told her that. I also felt terrible because I know she loves Kingsley, but I also love my child. It was a difficult time for all involved. I didn't blame Kim personally regarding the dog and was willing to drop it and move forward, yet she was too angry with me regarding the Instagram post to be able to do that.
I wish that since I was willing to let go of my anger regarding my daughter being bit and what she had to go through that she could have let go of being upset about the Instagram post. I HAVE to believe she knows I did NOT do that to hurt her.
For Kim to throw out that she would say something about Alexia ( like she did to Lisa R. regarding Harry ) nearly took my breath away. But her dog is off limits?
So there you have it.
I don't even know what to say or do anymore. Clearly, we will never agree on this matter. And now we have more issues to work through, like my hurt and anger over Kim threatening to say something about my child. I know she loves Alexia, and it was just her being angry and "in the moment," but it's going to take me some time to get past that. All I know is I am glad I don't have to relive all of this again on TV. Now I need to take a step back .
Hopefully, time will heal my relationship with Kim. Time and having an open and honest relationship.
It's been a very difficult season. That's for sure. Thank you all for watching.
XO,
Kyle

P.S
Some things I would like to clear up:

A) I NEVER asked for Kingsley to be put down. I love all animals and know how much Kim loves Kingsley. That was never part of our argument.

B) Brooke's wedding : Brooke did a small ceremony at my sister Kathy's house (part of it aired this season), so that Monty would be well enough to walk her down the aisle. The wedding we were referring to at the reunion is her actual "big wedding " coming up. And NO, I did not do anything "unspeakable" or "unforgivable" at the wedding at Kathy's house like Brandi has (once again) put out there. It was a beautiful, perfect day that Brandi Glanville is now trying to throw negativity on. She was NOT EVEN THERE. On top of everything else Brandi has done, she now wants to turn that beautiful day that my family celebrated into something to lie and gossip about. Shame on her.
