Kyle shares her thoughts on the "tiny, but mighty" Adrienne and on new girl Brandi.

on Sep 26, 20110

I had to laugh at Brandi having broken her foot from wearing high heels, then having a cast and crutches and still wearing 1 high heel. Although I joked about it, I have to say I would probably do the same!! I am 5'3" and she's probably 5'11", so it made it all the more funny to me. When you see the girls and me laughing in the booth, although not my brightest moment, keep in mind that she could not hear us. Not that it makes it any better! I don't know Brandi at all. I have heard the stories of her legal problems with her ex-husband and rumors of her slashing his tires. Although, I am not one to believe rumors, hearing these things coupled with her being friends with Cedric, didn't exactly make me want to jump up and embrace her.

We did all have fun at my fundraiser. I am grateful to my friends for showing up and supporting one of my charities. Thanks for watching!

Kyle, I love to watch all RH shows but have never commented before now. Your raising funds for The Lollipop Theater was very selfless and generous. I'm sure the venue was not free and it was difficult to solicit donations. I think $15,000 is wonderful and, like you said, you've brought awareness to the organization. I was so moved to make this comment because this touches me personally. My 6 yr old daughter is fighting her 2nd battle with cancer. She won her first against neuroblastoma when she was 1, and now is battling Ewing's Sarcoma. We've had 5 of 17 rounds of chemo so far. Altho we are not always confined to a hospital, sometimes we are stuck there for days due to a high fever, low blood counts, or a round of chemo. It's too much for a 6 yr old, or any child. Sometimes, the only thing they can look forward to while they're inpatient is the movie that comes on next. I'm sure your husband can attest to this. I was surprised to hear of his ordeal and am glad he has gone on to live a happy and successful life. I wish the best to you and your family. And again, thank you for all you do and have done to help those in need. You're a good person, Kyle. And human.

Kyle, it's so great to see you again, looking as beautiful and happy as ever! Did it ever occur to anyone that maybe those things that were leaked to the press about Taylor came from the people working at Camille's house? Taylor wasn't very discreet and I'm sure a lot was overheard. Not to place blame where it doesn't belong, but tabloids do pay big money to sources. Lisa is not the sort of woman who would waste her time with such underhanded nonsense. That rift must be hard on you - your are such a great and caring friend. Looking forward to the new season!

I'm still stunned that your friends are so wealthy but so tight with their purse strings you were only able to raise $25,000 at your fundraiser. Some of them wear more than that on one finger.

Don't know where else to ask this, but where's Kim's blog? Did Bravo drop her? Is that why there are two new women on at this time? I'll miss Kim and wish her well. Life isn't as easy for her, for one reason or another, as it is with the other ladies.

Perhaps if you had spent more time being a gracious hostess and made all of your guest feel welcome, instead of seating in the corner and making mean and catty comments, you would have raised more money for your charity. As a mother of three teenagers, I would have been horrified if they acted like you at an event they were hosting. Hopefully your daughters will never be targets of such mean spirited people. Lead by example!

Kyle, Love you,your kids,your handsome husband,even your bushy eyebrows in your way-back-when picture of you. Im sure it was only taking 10 years ago but you get the idea,anyways dont change.

I enjoy watching RHBH except for when it comes to you. Last season you did nothing but pick on your sister and stand up for everyone else and this season, you have become increasingly catty! I've noticed the way that you instigate a fight and when a confrontation begins you act like you are against it. This episode did it for me. You did such an amazing thing with that charity event and cancelled it all out by your behavior with Brandi! I do hope that you take a good look at yourself and try to hold back all the cattiness in future episodes.

Kyle, You are so blessed with a beautiful family and life that I was really was so disappointed on how you can be so mean. You really are not a nice person, and if you are, it really does not show on TV. Maybe they are making you act like a child with your mean spirit towards Brandi. On one end you throw this fundraiser for the children with cancer, and on the other hand you are making fun of Brandi at the event. very sad... I also wonder why you are best friends with Faye who profitted from her best friends death, Nicole. She told some very intimate secrets that were wrong for her to tell the world. I hope you read this since you really need to thank God for blessing you. The way you act is not being a beautiful person. Do you want people to remember you for being mean to your own sister and people you don't like. Not cool!

consequences to actions
consequences to actions

I must start off by saying that I have always had a vision of how people (women especially) from Beverly Hills acted and at times I felt bad about stereotyping because obviously I did not know first-hand, I was only going on what I have always seen or heard so when the first season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills started I figured I would start with a clean slate when it came to all of you and I really wanted to give you the benefit of the doubt as a whole. However, as time has gone on, I feel like the typical image and behaviors are pretty much exactly how I had always pictured it to be, and sadly sometimes even worse than I could have imagined. This past week's episode proved my feelings to be completely correct when I watched the event that you had planned. First off, I am very happy to see you taking your own time to plan something that was raising money for such an important charity. However, when I saw the way you and some of the other women were acting, I was appalled. I had no idea grown adult "classy ladies" could act like cruel and immature school girls making fun of another woman who was coming to support the same cause you were so focused on helping. I'm not sure why you feel that you have the right to sit and judge or make fun of anyone, because you along with every other human being are not perfect. The worst part of this is you were making fun of someone for what they looked like after they were injured and something clearly had happened that she had no control over, yet you are trying to prove yourself to be so caring for others in a time of need. Do you not realize that by doing something good (planning this great, meaningful event), then sitting there at the event making fun of someone you in essence did nothing so admirable at all? In my opinion, it pretty much cancelled out the good with your poor attitude and behavior, and that's quite sad if you think about it. I feel like all of who participated in that behavior, especially you, should be ashamed of yourselves, and should think before you act because your actions have consequences, and in this case they are called FANS. Remember, without people supporting you on this show, you have nothing as far as your reality-tv-life goes. I can guarantee that more than half of the viewers were dissapointed in you and the other women, and since your true colors have shown brightly, they are either no longer fans of you or on their way to feeling that way. I wish you the best in your quest for being a better person because at the end of the day, no one is better than anyone, remember that.

You have this spark like your niece, Paris, that makes people take interest in you. Unfortunately, you are too emotional and lack the discrimination to see that Taylor is manipulating you.

I am a full time working class mother of a child with Autism. I spend every minute of my free time trying to come up with ways to do good for a variety of Autism charities. I don't have a large bank account or the luxury of giving up my job to focus on something I am very passionate about For me to sit and watch you throw such a lavish event for such a great cause and to sit in a group of mean girls at the popular table and tear apart a guest at your charity function was disappointing. I have no idea what kind of woman Brandie is or what her intentions were, but behaving that way at your event made me sick to my stomach. You should be ashamed of yourself....True colors are shining, you honestly think you are better than everyone else.....how sad.

Kyle, I don't understand why you are being so mean towards lisa&ken! You were so close. How did you get so defensive of Taylor? She is very sneaky. You do remember she really hurt your sister by lying so much last year ,you must of watched the show? Kyle I don't know what your resoning is but I don't get it. And geez give the girl(brandi)a chance!!

When Taylor was talking about the leak, why didn't you say that it probably came from her. Taylor seems to tell everyone her most intimate business. So much about Taylor doesn't make any sense. I think a friend says what they need to hear not what they want to hear. My opinions do not take away from my sympathy for her loss. I like Lisa would have confronted Taylor after the weekend in Denver. If only for concern for her child. The comment Taylor made about leaving for the safety of her child made the hair on my neck stand up! Take a step back it would be healthier for you and for Taylor.

your not my favorite leave lisa and her husband alone. you need to check yourself before you get in another mess this season! pluse i rather take their advise than yours they have been married ,and are happy.

kyle you should not treat lisa and her husband the way you did at the dinner table Taylor a big girl .Lisa is your friend that not how you treat a friend and i did not see anything wrong with what they said. You need to stay out of it that how you lose friends taylor is a person that need to have all the attention! Lisa and her husband to high class to acuse them of trying to hurt taylor really kyle. You should remeber the problems you had from last time with your sister try and just listen .

Kyle, of course we're all sorry for Taylor's circumstances and realize how fragile she is, but that said, although fragile, you must understand that because we are watching the before and not the after, we can only comment on the shows which we've seen this season including the previews. You seem to have convenient short time memory loss. Taylor condemned Lisa for bringing up her severe weight loss at your charity event, saying that it was not the time or place for such a conversation. But, I noticed that it seems to have slipped your mind to mention HER/Taylor's 39th Birthday Party last year when she attacked your sister, which led to the unforgettable moments between you and your sister Kim. BTW, I too just saw the preview of you belittling Lisa and must agree with Lilah. You need to get a clue as to who your friends truly are. Taylor has tried and seems to have accomplished separating you from your sister and possibly Lisa. You need to take the time to listen to what Lisa says to Taylor instead of automatically jumping to her defense. Choose your friends carefully and don't let them come between your friends and family!!!

kyle the good thing about you that you are honest in your feelings and give people a say also ...and i love that in a person i am the same way and people that live in lies or angry do not like that you go girl .... and you are the prettiness of them all and lots of women do not like that.....

This show is one of my guilty pleasures in life.Ive dreamed of living this kinda life since I was a little girl but life took me in a different direction.Seriously,the angry comments on here make me laugh as surely all of you who posted your anger here have been guilty of doing what Kyle did probably more than once in your life.Kyle is the true star of this show,truly a diamond in the rough.You cant miss that mischeaveous twinkle in her eye that conveys it's all in fun,tongue in cheek.That being said, I dont think I would make it for 1 New York minute in Beverly Hills.They would totally hate me,except for Kyle of course:).One look at me with my unmanicured nails, hair that hasnt been cut in months that I color myself and my daily uniform of levis,coupled with an awful NY accent,out of all the BH housewives,Kyle would be the one with the heart to take me under her wing and fix me right up.She's truly the only REAL one on the show,with something all the other ladies cant buy and that's Heart!xoxo

Kyle, Kyle, Kyle, this is how it starts. One day you in the next day your out, I've heard it said. If you think the audience will tolerate that behavior think again. Your PR should read the blogs and if she read what I'm reading you will see the viewers are turning and the wind is not blowing your way. I thought you were the coolest of all, now I'm not so sure. Camille is becoming my favorite.

I was always rooting for you Kyle untill I saw the last episode. I'm not saying Brandi might be the sweetest most innocent girl on the block, but to heckle her like that is just cruel. What an example for girls!! And Taylor also having the time of her life chiming in. Maybe that whole Camille thing was NOT a misunderstanding on her part! Still I wish you all the best.

Lilah

Kyle I just saw an upcoming video of you scolding Lisa about Taylor. You need to take the time to listen to what Lisa says to Taylor instead of jumping to her defense all the time. Really it is getting old you butting in. I know she counts on you as her friend but she clearly has no problem standing up to people who are fragile and cannot defend themselves. Remember Season one with Kim. Oh thats right you didn't defend your sister against her either. Lisa was trying to be gracious in offering her help and you have the nerve to scold her really? I wish all people were as compassionate as Lisa. Clearly Lisa doesn't trust Taylor and she still offered her help. Take a look at your behavior at your fund raiser. It seems you are the one who needs to be scolded. Mean Girl Moment. I have only posted one other time I would appreciate if Bravo would post this so maybe Kyle can re-evaluate her actions with the others rather than focusing on defending Taylor all the time and start listening to some of the other viewers.

Kyle, I love you and think you have class, grace and the biggest heart! You are beautiful and I admire the relationship you have with your husband. You're my favorite housewife! Keep your down-to-earth personaltiy! What a sweet and loving lady you are! Bless you! Love, Betsy

Kyle,

You are beautiful and you have everything anyone could possibly want. It makes me cringe when you talk about those less fortunate like Kim and Brandi. Please stop being so mean. I really like you and don't understand that part of you. Why when you are so blessed and have so much do you have to take a stab at someone else? Lisa can take care of herself and just because she had a falling out with Cedric doesn't mean no one can like him. PLEASE!! That's childish!! I was so disappointed in you. Be the beautiful person you are.

Hi Kyle! I am such a huge fan. You're my all time favorite housewife, I have to say. You speak your mind, but it's clear that you are a caring and family oriented person. Not to mention you are stunning!! Anyone who dares to criticize your relationship with your sister is naive. No one knows the whole story, and no one needs to. As long as you care about making it "right" that's all that matters; and I believe that you do. As for the drama and Brandi...if she can't laugh at herself, that's her problem. She was wearing crutches and a heel for God's sake. She looked ridiculous! Also, nothing made me laugh harder than Portia saying "Poop!" Team Kyle!

I would like to say is the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is my favorite show. I love you Kyle, and Lisa. PLease don't Push Lisa away you guys are great friends. I know Taylor needs you as I know you'll be there for her, but remember your friendship with Lisa. I am really surprised with Camille this season so far she is being nice. LOl...hope she stays nice with you all. Can't wait till next week.

Kyle, Yes, I must agree with another who wrote that I really do admire the relationship and love you share with Lisa. It's nice to hear you defend her. I don't think the relationship was ever in jeopardy, but things seemed a bit odd at the end of the season last year. Very funny comment from Lanehousewife-please play nice in the sandbox! Made me really laugh! All women can get catty...end of story.

I do think it was very catty for all the women to gather and laugh about Brandi. I suspect that every one of those women would dress in flats and gunny sacks if they broke their ankle. Who needs to look great if they foot is broken?

I am not sure what Cedric did that was so bad, but I have heard LIsa and friends say more bad stuff about him and never heard him say a bad word about Lisa and Ken.

All you ladies needed was a caldron at your fundraiser as you all cackled like a bunch of witches at Halloween! The funny thing is...you all know there are cameras. Who knows what you all would have sad/done without cameras. I felt sorry for Brandi - and I already don't like her! And, by the way, when Taylor was quizzing you about who leaked her personal information - your facial expression seemed a little wierd..like you knew something more than you were telling.

Kyle, it would be wise to remember you have young girls of your own that look up to you and watch every moment of your behavior, especially when it is nationally broadcast and can be watched over and over. Young girls are at an age where they wear their feelings on their sleeve. They are in such a competitive society of peers that words such as you used to taunt Brandi can be devastating and hurtful to the point of bullying. What example have you set for them? It is so difficult for young girls to learn to interact socially especially when it seems so important to be accepted. If it is okay for their mother to be a "mean girl" and to actually get paid for it, they will become confused. You can come off as so "above" some others and it is not pretty. I am fearful how far you will go this season.

JanetPac

I think you are great and a very genuine person. You have a beautiful and fabulous family and are so lucky. Please though, cut out the cattiness. It makes you look awful and your beauty does not shine through when you do that. Good luck with everything.

I love you too Kyle. You and Lisa to me are the best of the BH Housewives. So what if you were a little catty to Brandi, she did look ridiculous in those high heels with a broken foot due to the high heels. All women have their catty moments and we all have to take the good with the bad...These women who respond to your blog need to be a little nicer. They are in fact the mean girls in their own circle. If their hands aren't clean they shouldn't throw mud. I just love seeing Portia - what a delightful little girl. The pooper scooper last week had me in stitches.

Peace Kyle!!!!!

Lisa I can understand, but why would you feel defensive about Brandi? It's none of your business and you don't even know the girl to feel that way. Lisa is perfectly capable of handling the Brandi and Cedric situation on her own and doesn't need anyones help. Grow up and stop acting like a "MEAN GIRL". It doesn't become you "BUTTERCUP" just like you told Paul at your party.

Kyle, it's evident that you are the ring leader and that's the way you like it. Your just a little cooler than everybody else and you know how to work it. The gossip and laughing was not cool even though you felt like you had everyone's attention with girls gathered all around you as you we're laughing at this new girl. You don't have to like her but your behavior should have been let go of back in your high school years.

Hope your being friend to Lisa V. and Ken is real. There is something about you that is ? sometimes...maybe your attitude. Hope your a real friend to them for they are very nice couple and your sister Kim....don't forget she's your sister.

I normally don’t post on blogs but your behavior on the last episode hit a nerve with me! Last year you attacked Camille. This year is it going to be Brandi's turn? Did I miss something? I didn't see Brandi do anything to you! It appears that you are just jealous. Would you want your daughters behaving like you? I have a 17 year old daughter who is not only the nicest person, she is very beautiful too, which makes her a target for mean girls! I can’t tell you how many tears she has cried because of mean girls like you! Apparently means girls don’t out grow it!

Love you and Lisa! who cares about Brandi---she's already proven to be a woman who will do anything to stay in the limelight! Obviously anyone who is hanging out with Cedric after everything that went down last season should be kept at a guarded distance!

I have yet to feel so strongly about anything on Bev. Hills, to the extent in which I felt I needed to comment, until now. Kyle, you(were) and Lisa(is) my favorite housewives of all the Housewives franchises. Yet seeing your behavior towards Lisa really saddens me because I am the type of person who takes true friendships seriously and feel they are something to be valued. I am beyond disappointed in you that you would risk Lisa's friendship over someone (and forgive me because I know she is going through a very trying time) as manipulative & opportunistic as Taylor. I just saw a preview of your dinner w/ Lisa,Ken & mauricio where you "scolded" Lisa for the way in which she has offered Taylor help. In all of the scenes I've watched, I personally never heard Lisa say "I'm not your friend, but...". I have, however, heard her say "Were not the best of friends but". I respect Lisa even more for this because she is saying to Taylor that even though they aren't the best of friends, she will still be there to support or help her in anyway she can, because that's the type of person she is. If another human being needs help, regardless of how she feels about them, she'll do whatever is in her power to help. The world would be a better place if everyone operated this way.Yet because Lisa lets people know where they stand with her, and in situations with dynamics such as the ones between you ladies, it's probably the smartest and most couragious thing to do, you condemn her for it. Most women prefer to know where they stand in regard to their relationships with friends & other women. No one likes smoke blown up their___. I think that shows great kindness and compassion on Lisa's part and you would be a fool to risk a friend such as that. Please show us the viewers that you are the kind, easy-going & down to earth hands -on mom that we saw you to be in the first season. P.S. To BRAVO: Watching The Real Housewives franchise is my one guilty pleasure, which I endure much teasing about from my husband. I also took time out of my day, of which I don't have much to spare, to write this. So I would genuinely appreciate the posting of this comment. Much thanks!

I still really like you and have to agree that was not your best moment when sitting with the other girls making fun of Brandi, I cringed watching this, it was typical "mean girl" behavior. Where was Adrienne to defend the friend that she brought? You seem to act this way with Taylor and I don't think Taylor would act this way on her own. I hope you get better through the season. Love your family, you must be doing something right!

Kyle, I know your heart was in the right place but I cannot figure out how you only raised $15,000 on the night of your fundraiser. We raised over $20,000 at our high school sports fundraiser, and we live in a middle class neighborhood. I can't figure out how between ticket sales and the silent auction you couldn't have raised at least double what you did??

Kyle, You're adorable but show a mean streak. Brandi was introduced as Adrienne's friend. You and your cohorts' cattiness was absolutely uncalled for. Conversely, all of BH husbands are far more interesting and mature than from any other HW franchise. Mauricio, Ken & Paul are living dolls to their respective wives. You gals are very, very lucky...
