A Model Student

Lisa explains why she didn't need certain lessons and what she thought of Taylor's behavior.

Hello to you all. Where do we start? Oh, I felt overwhelmed when I viewed this episode. It was more by luck than judgment that I managed to avoid the foray. . .

Firstly, the calm before the storm -- planning my daughter's wedding. It was moving forward rapidly. We only had four months to plan, total, as she wanted to be married. . .as quickly as possible. . .Kidding, before the end of summer.

Kevin was finally bringing it home. The table settings were exquisite. The flowers I knew would be absolute perfection, as that is the area at which he excels. I became excited to see the gorgeous table settings that, luckily, Pandora and I both loved. Thankfully we normally agree. It makes life so much easier.

As we exit from the fairytale like experience, we enter into a much darker place. I don't know if it was because subconsciously I was still reeling from the shock of the tea party and the conversation with Adrienne at her house that I made the decision to work late and meet my husband for drinks at Villa Blanca. Thank goodness. I hadn't been coping so well with all the demands that were being made on me. I was always running late. Between my latest venture, trying to plan my daughter's wedding, Villa Blanca, and many other demands, I was spreading myself too thin. The construction of Sur, as you witnessed a small part of this week, was designed and opened within two months, which proved to be a challenge that's for sure. But it's always a race against time as you are paying rent and obviously not trading, so one has to be prudent and expedient to say the least.

So I declined Brandi's invitation for a certain class that I have already graduated in. . .

I saw that the evening commenced, with playfulness. Brandi made her attempt to entertain and infiltrate a group of women with maybe too many dynamics to really enjoy what should have been a simple evening.

It became the night of fruition, where all the pent up feelings whirling inside Taylor's head were magnified -- I believe by the pressure, alcohol, and feelings of anger towards Camille.

I understand it's hard to believe and comprehend the situation that we were all immersed in. We sympathized with Taylor, but were mystified as to the inconsistencies in regard to her relationship...her turbulent emotional state. It is extremely difficult to judge when we are not witness to all she experienced.

I was totally unaware of the magnitude of the evening's events. I heard from Kyle early the next morning, but to view it was difficult. I thank goodness that at least Taylor is now in a better place emotionally, not only for her but for the sake of her daughter.

I thank God that we had resolved our differences and I could be there to give her the support she has desperately needed. Kyle being so close to her, was extremely supportive, but none of us ever envisaged the tragedy that lay in front of her.

So there we have it. As you see Taylor extremely emotional in the car, Brandi left desolate and once again feeling excluded, and me luckily, safely tucked up in bed blissfully unaware of the battle I had missed -- but battling on my own as my husband made unreasonable demands from his exhausted wife to prove what an excellent student I had once been. . .

Love always Lisa.

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.
