No Love Lost

Kyle shares what she really thinks of Ken and why she couldn't let Kim's late arrival go.

I really had been looking forward to Mauricio's birthday in Hawaii. For the first time ever, I was not able to enjoy our White Party. I really felt bad about that because it was also our daughter Alexia's and Faye Resnick's birthdays (Alexia's is June 18th, Mauricio's is June 25th, and Faye's is July 3rd). We always throw the White Party in honor of all of their birthdays.

When Kim told me she was bringing her boyfriend Ken to Hawaii I understood that she wanted to have someone to be with. I wasn't thrilled, obviously, because I had never been a fan of his. One of the issues that Kim and I argue about is her being irresponsible. We all showed up at the airport on time, except for Kim. I was frustrated and disappointed because I thought it would be fun for us to all fly together. That's half the fun!

When I first laid eyes on the island hopper "plane" that was supposed to take us to Lanai, I didn't know if I should laugh or cry. It looked like a 7-Up can with a propeller! It's no secret that I am not a good flyer. However, I will say, that the hypnotherapy you all saw me go through on Season 1 really did help. Carrying the Zohar (the red book you see me holding) also makes me feel better. The girls love to tease me about my issues with flying. Watching the episode and seeing Brandi slumped over in her seat on Xanax, I thought, "OK, I will stick with my Zohar." I become quite religious when I fly.

The hotel was beautiful and I was so excited to be away. The first night was fun and we all had a good time. It was funny seeing Lisa telling Brandi to get her hands off Ken. Lisa handled it better than I would have. Haha!

On the beach the next day, Lisa and I were both surprised to hear Taylor call us and say she left Russell. Taylor had said many times that she should leave but never had until this point. . This was the first I had ever heard her say they really were done. All of us were relieved. Some of the group doubted she would stick to it and end up going back to Russell. I knew this was something that had to be done for both Taylor and Kennedy.

The next day Kim finally arrived! At this point I was feeling that she had already missed a lot of the fun. I never saw her all day until dinner that night. When Kim and Ken showed up and acted like it was just any other day. I was beyond frustrated. I expected her to explain what happened (truthfully) and or apologize. It wasn't like it was a secret. The entire group knew what was going on. Kim likes to brush things under the carpet. I like to put them on the table. The reason I need to do that with my sister is if we don't address what is bothering us, it builds up and then our relationship becomes very passive aggressive -- as you witnessed in Season 1. I wanted my sister to just be honest -- not just about Hawaii but about everything. Mauricio has never had an argument with Kim before, but he has witnessed my hurt and frustration and felt compelled to say something.

A lot of you tweeted me asking why Kim called him Maurice instead of Mauricio. . . that was not a dig. Some people do call him that. Both my sisters do and my Mom did as well. Some family and friends also call him Moe (just to clarify).

Anyway, I knew I wasn't going to get anywhere with Kim that night and had resolved to let it go and just have fun on our trip. However, when Kim kept us waiting again the next morning, I was embarrassed. It's different when it's your sister. If it had been a friend I wouldn't have felt the same. After waiting in the bus and then trying to get her out of her room, we had been waiting almost an hour. I felt a combination of frustration, sadness, and guilt that she would be missing another beautiful day in Hawaii. We DID have fun and laughed a lot that day. I was happy once I got past the guilt of seeing my sister at the dock.

On our way to dinner that night we had barely spoken. She stayed near Ken and laughed with the girls but never mentioned the boat or barely seeing any of us on what was supposed to be Mauricio's birthday party. At dinner, I could no longer pretend everything was OK. Ken wasn't helping matters either. I didn't trust him and felt he was not a positive influence on my sister. He knew I didn't care for him and made sure I knew he felt the same about me. No love lost there.

I was very worried about my sister and didn't care what he thought about me. I know I seem overly emotional at times regarding my sister but I had been keeping a lot inside. We already put so much of our lives out there but I felt certain things were a private family matter. However, not for long. . .

Until next week. . .

Brandi: You Can't Confirm What Didn't Happen

Brandi questions some of the ladies' motives, plus gives an interesting update on her relationship with LeAnn. 

Hey, My Bravoistas!

I’m in my American Airlines' seat 36 hours later, flying back home from NYC, thankful to be on a safe path home. My prayers go out to the families and loved ones of the downed German airliner in the French Alps this morning. I cannot imagine the pain being experienced by these families at this moment, which shockingly has led me to add a new person into my flight prayer today...my children’s stepmom. Don’t get me wrong--not everything is yet copasetic, but my children love her, so she is now in the “flight prayer,” differences aside. Now on a happier RHOBH note, last night’s WWHL with Andy was sooooo fun! No drama for once!

NEWS FLASH! Please watch for my new Sonoma County Chardonnay “Unfiltered Blonde,” to launch in April!

As I look over this past season, all I can say is it’s been an odd one. There were so many fun moments that got lost in the drama and so many weeks of fun you never saw at all. I wish you had, but I'm not in control of everything we get to see. I’d like to remember having fun with Kim “stalking” my now boyfriend J.R. That was such a crazy fun girls' night, Lisa R. being chased by killer bees, Yolanda and her Facetime confusion and meeting her family for the second time this--time in Holland, the Foster Foundation Extravaganza, “singing” at Lisa V.’s birthday party, and Kyle pretending to be a caring sister and owning yachts and planes…haha.
Ok, I’ll behave.

Here we are at the last episode of the season, yet, it seems most are still stuck in the beginning. I wish we weren’t, and I would dearly like to leave “Poker Night” behind. However, one person continues to make it the focal point of every interaction from when it happened and far into the three-part reunion.

This episode opens with Rinna tearing down a swing set, but her home interviews are still about what she perceives as Kim’s issues to be, not the actual touching moment of what the swing set tear-down symbolizes or her own family (I can't wait for her daughters to write their Brooke Shields-style memoir when they are age appropriate). LR says she feels sorry for Kim and cares about Kim and wishes Kim well. The truth is a lot less pretty. Some people have been attacking Kim’s sobriety online this week, but we won’t name names. BTW, Kim is sober and not online. She is busy caring for serious ill family members and driving back and forth to doctors and hospitals and being strong for her family.

Next we see Nicky Hilton’s book signing--sister Paris and mom Kathy Hilton are there. Looks like a great party and congrats to Nicky on her style book. Camille looks gorgeous as usual. Kyle angrily flips her hair, because Kim was wearing a shirt that she carries at “her” shop, but didn’t buy it there...whatever. Then Kyle whispers about her sister Kim to Lisa V. and Camille.
Kyle then tells them she is confused and impatient that Kim hasn’t confronted me over her third-hand Lisa R. gossip. She states Kim WILL be hurt and broken hearted over what “I” said… Kyle seems way too overy excited about that happening, which I find kind creepy. Why would anyone WANT their sister to be hurt or in pain?!

The preparations for Adrienne’s party are in full swing next. Lisa V. is fretting it, Kim is casually discussing the intervention GOSSIP with her makeup artist before the party, I’m getting ready and waiting for my friends and my date.

Adrienne’s party is the big finale of our journey this year. Everyone is there, and Adrienne always excels at events. So here we go. First off, my mind was not on the party at all. My father was recently hospitalized, and I didn’t leave his side for two weeks. It was very serious, but I had to return home to my boys. He was still not conscious, but I needed to get home to run my household--a party was the last place I wanted to be, but I had promised. That’s why I decided to bring the few people that I felt I could depend on in that moment. My friends and J.R. have been there for me during my father’s health scare and over more then a month of hospitalization--that was and is what remains what’s important to me.

The party seems like it was fun for a lot of people who weren’t involved in Kyle and Lisa. R.’s drama. I wish I were one of them, but in a way I was. As much as Kyle relished telling Kim the hurtful gossip she heard from LR, what she wanted to happen didn’t happen. There was no argument between Kim and I. We were happy to see each other. We spoke easily. I was busy worrying about my Dad; she was busy with her family.

What we saw on the finale was an efficient Kim quietly confronting Lisa R., then leaving Lisa R.'s table somewhat amused. Lisa R. couldn’t confirm the veracity of her gossip, because I DIDN’T SAY IT. Thanks again to Bravo for showing the truth in a flashback last week.

So, Kim knew who was who and what was what. The entertainment of the night was provided by Lisa R. going radio silent while Kyle begged for corroboration on her dramatic intervention gossip. Watching Yolanda, Eileen, and Lisa V. urge Lisa R. to support Kyle and verify her hurtful gossip was almost amusing. You can't confirm what didn't happen, can you?

In the end, I left the party early. Why? Not because of a past friendship with Lisa V. It's not her that made me cry--I was crying for my father, my dad! I was in no place to be at a superficial party, discussing a superficial incident with a person who was clearly not a friend, not that night. I said I would show up, and I did. After that, I wanted to be with my real close friends and family. Since this party my dad came out of the ICU and after 2 entire months and after a long stressful time I want to thank Dr. Allen Morris and all the doctors and nurses at Mercy General Hospital of Sacramento for saving my dad's life yet agin for the second time in 15 years. He is doing much better and continuing his hope of a full recovery. I am so thankful to all the people who were there for me and continue to be here for my family and I.

THAT is what life’s about, being with the people who truly love and care about you and the feelings are reciprocated.

As you hear, at the end of the finale, I am wistful, yet, wiser, and I think in a stronger place. I love and loved being there for Kim and being Kim’s friend, and I love that she was, is, and has been here for me. Even more so, I'm grateful and blessed to have Yolanda in my life; she is no bullsh--. Even when suffering herself, she is still so selfless. Yo is very special to me, I love her, she gets me, we have fun together, and I value every moment we spend together. I always will. As for the rest, I hope to share laughs and fun again, maybe tears, but hopefully only joy.

Peace Out. (deuces MFs--JK)
