Where's My Broom?

Kyle explains why she was so defensive at Game Night and why this episode was so tough to watch.

This week is a rough one. I actually cried after watching it. In some ways this episode was harder for me than the Season 1 finale. I say that because that scene in the limo with my sister Kim, as difficult as it was, was what I was feeling. I'm not proud of how I went about it. I also knew the audience didn't know our history or why I was so upset, so that made it more difficult. But, I also think that anyone who has a strained relationship with a sibling knows that nobody can get you more worked up!

However, in this episode, as I watch, I don't feel like myself. I can see that I was nervous from the moment I walked in the door. I didn't know Dana or Brandi very well, and I was uncomfortable. Plus, I was also expecting my sister at any moment. Spending time with Kim makes me nervous at times. Our relationship was on the mend and still shaky. .

When Kim arrived, she seemed a bit out of sorts. I had a previous cell phone conversation with her on my way to Dana's where she told me she was extremely stressed and anxious. We went into the bathroom to fix her hair/make-up and to sort of regroup. That's all that was going on in the bathroom that night.

Later, when we started playing games, Kim whispered (I now realize, not quietly enough) that she didn't like Brandi. I did not realize Brandi heard this, which is why I later said, "What are you talking about?" I think at this point in my relationship with Kim, I would have stood by her no matter what she said or did because I was so traumatized by our fight last year. Watching myself laugh like that I was thinking, “Oh, my gosh, all I needed was a broom and a wart on the end of my nose!" Sometimes the dynamics are so tense in the group that you get caught up in that.

When we were playing the game "Celebrity", I honestly wasn't trying to exclude Brandi from the questions. I just knew the fastest way to get the answer. Since the name on the card happened to be my ex-boyfriend, C. Thomas Howell. I knew Kim could answer that fast if I asked "Who is my ex-boyfriend?" In watching, I see how that came across. It makes me sad because I am not a mean person, neither is my sister Kim, and this whole night felt mean-spirited. I am disappointed in myself that it got so out of hand. If this was typical of my behavior, my husband would never tolerate it. I have always taught my kids to treat people the way they want to be treated. I guess they will be skipping this episode!

When Brandi made the accusations about my sister, I got really defensive. We have gone through too much, and I couldn't sit there. I do have a lot of fire in me and could use some lessons on how to handle things more calmly. But accusing someone of doing "drugs"?! My sister is not on drugs.

I had to laugh when in the midst of all this fighting, Dana yells out "Kyle, make it stop!" in regards to Brandi. Have we all gone mad!?!

I also want to say that I actually did offer to help Brandi down the steps when we first arrived. Dana ended up helping her down.

It was a welcome relief to see Jason and Pandora telling Lisa that they are getting married. They are such a beautiful couple. I know Lisa has been waiting for this day for a long time. In watching the episode I was thinking, “Why couldn't I have been there instead of at Game Night!?!”

Well, next week the drama continues. . .

Until then. . ..

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 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!



P.S.  Here’s my Make*A*Wish YouTube video that I made in my kitchen.
