Lisa R Reflects on That Bittersweet Episode

Born to Be Wild

Lisa admits she knew this episode would expose her as the party gal she truly is.

Hello. As we invite you all into our ever changing world to witness our journeys and to join us on the rollercoaster ride that seems to get more hazardous each week, this episode was a welcome reprieve . . .

First, I indulged myself in a rare morning off to spend some time with Pandora choosing dresses. I had heard of a designer, Ian Stuart, who ironically came from the same village in London as I did. Pandora had fallen in love with one of his dresses on his website, so off we trotted to see his creations in person. I had been feeling a little guilty about not giving my daughter as much attention as she deserved at this very special moment in her life, a moment that is reserved for mother and daughter and is the segue for her leaving to start her own life with the man she loves. Time was running out as the wedding was rapidly approaching. I needed to set aside my other demands. When I view moments like this, when my daughter asks me if I am going to cry and reveals herself for the first time in a gown, and to have documented amongst all the craziness these incredible vignettes of irreplaceable experiences, locked, not only in my heart, but on film for all the world to see, I couldn't be happier.

Pandy had shown trepidation about being involved with a reality show, so it was a treacherous path for me, as her mother to know just how much we should reveal.

Pandora had along with Jason and their friends arranged their bachelorette parties at our old friend’s hotel, Planet Hollywood. Kyle got wind of this and persuaded me to go with her. Kyle then backed out due to other commitments, so Pandy invited Taylor when we spent the day together being the judges on Top Chef. It was Taylor's 40th birthday the same night, and I felt saddened that she would rather spend it with us than her loved ones. I knew our relationship had been difficult, to say the least, but remember I hadn't seen any of the things that you the viewer have been privy to. . .all the scenes with Kyle which I just saw recently. I had no idea how mean spirited it had been, insinuating I would give stories, etc. . .but that is all very much in the past. We have moved on thank goodness, so it was just the tea party, which granted was bad enough. But I still hoped that our weekend might give her a respite from the continual emotional turmoil she seemed to be immersed in. I also knew her need for my friendship and acceptance was greater than my reluctance, my doubts, and our history.

She came to see me previously in Villa Blanca, and I gently probed her as to whether she was drinking too much when she regaled me with the stories of Malibu and her own admission of it being a haze, and her emotional behavior. I knew that she was struggling. . .

So off we go to Vegas. I was unsure of what lay ahead, but this is the episode that threatens to expose me. . .threatens to reveal the wild animal that lurks beneath!

Actually it was funny, and I knew for sure I was going to be a target alongside Pandora, but if you can't beat 'em, join them.

We had a successful weekend. Most importantly, my daughter loved it and the negativity regarding promoting the Palms, which had upset us all previously, had gone. It was definitely a weekend to remember. . .something I would normally run a mile from. The mere fact that none of us had been impregnated by a Chipmunk and that all of us came home, and I proved to these young girls that there was life in the old dog yet!

I, as I am sure most of you did, felt so saddened by the scene of Kim and Kyle together -- Kim struggling with a dilemma so many others face, contemplating her future with a man she loved at the risk of upsetting her children. The utter anguish was etched on her face. I just hope she finds the inner strength to steer her life in the direction that will ultimately lead to true happiness.

See you next week. Remember my mantra -- love and laughter supersede all.

Love always Lisa.

Kyle: I Have Never Had Anyone Put a Hand on Me

Kyle explains what worried her most the night of the poker party.

Wow, this is a difficult blog to write. This was a horrible night made all the worse by Brandi's behavior. When I walked outside, I wanted to talk to my sister without anyone else around. I tried to walk Kim away from the cameras, as well as Brandi. Brandi was relentless. I asked her over and over again to leave us alone and let me speak with my sister privately. As Kim and I were standing by the garage trying to speak in private, Brandi grabbed both of my wrists and would not let go. I was shocked. I have never had anyone put a hand on me and honestly started to feel scared. I don't want to be overly dramatic about the situation, but Brandi is 5'10" and I am 5'2", and at this point I did not know what she was capable of, especially because she was intoxicated and aggressive.


I took off my shoes, so I could get out of there as quickly as possible. I want to say that while the physical part of this evening was very upsetting, it paled in comparison to my concern for my sister. What Brandi is so clearly trying to do to my relationship with my sister is what was upsetting me the most. We had worked so hard on our relationship and had come so far, and to see this happening had me overcome with emotion.

I just hope that Kim can see what we all saw so clearly...that Brandi's actions speak louder than any of her venomous lies.

Kyle Richards

Brandi keeps saying I'm jealous of how close they are and how she's been there for Kim. I never realized they were as close as Brandi claims, and I never knew Brandi to be there for Kim other than taking that one call that she talked about in her interview. Brandi did call me to say that Kim had called her at 2 AM in the morning. She asked me to please not repeat it, and I never did. But she went on camera letting everyone know about it. Why would she repeat that? I also never said "That's not my problem, that's just Kim." I had my hands tied as I was asked to please not repeat that this information was shared with me . Other than Brandi telling me about this one call, I have never gotten any late night calls or any signs of my sister not being OK or in danger in any way. If there was something I should have been there for, I certainly had no idea. Perhaps my sister chose not to share with me and felt comfortable sharing with Brandi. I cannot be there for something I am unaware of. If I knew of something that Kim needed me for, I would be there as I always have. There are years of history there that Brandi is not privy to, and I will never share, no matter how many hurtful lies she hurls my way.
When I watch Brandi with Kim, I see someone who is taking advantage of my sister at her most vulnerable. It's frustrating, worrisome, and hurtful that my sister cannot see this. Why does Brandi want Kim to feel that she is the only one there for her? We come from a big family that my sister has plenty of support from. People who genuinely love and care for her. Not to mention that Kim has four adult children that love and support their mom.
As I walked away from this night, I knew I would never be friends with Brandi and was scared of just how much damage she had done to my relationship with Kim. I just hope that Kim can see what we all saw so clearly...that Brandi's actions speak louder than any of her venomous lies.
Thanks for watching.
XO,
Kyle
