Onwards We Go

Lisa shares her thoughts on Taylor's tough issues, expanding her business, and what she learned watching the other ladies this week.

So this week we return to Colorado and continue to see Taylor dealing with some tough issues. We all tried to be supportive. We tried our utmost to understand.

It was troubling to witness, and I felt a lot of empathy towards her and what we now know to be an extremely difficult situation.

I found the whole trip exhausting, so when we returned home, I just felt relieved to flop back into my blanket of security, with my husband and getting back to the serious business of snogging the Gigster -- for which I am highly criticized!

I heard that the premises next door to one of my existing restaurants Sur was possibly available for sale. I knew there was potential for another restaurant to take it, and I was desperate to convince my husband to support my choice and venture forward into another business plan -- a bar with a little gem of a garden, something so unique in WeHo. it was a very exciting prospect for me. My mind was racing ahead of how I could decorate and transform this empty shell into a sexy space. 

Oh, I am so aware that with the economic recession, it is a precarious time -- with a multitude of restaurants and bars closing and that my husband might be hesitant. We in life have to take chances, have to move forward keeping our eye on the ball and maintain our ambition. That being said cautiously and optimistically we. . .with a little persuasion. . .proceeded onwards with the journey of creating Sur Lounge, which actually opens this week!

I love working, thrive on challenges, and sometimes make the mistake of believing I can do it all. I think a lot of women when their children grow up need to keep busy so as not to dwell on their empty nest. I for one, am exactly that. When I look at Kyle even picking up poop with cute, chubby, gorgeous little Portia, I know that if I had the chance to rewind the clock 20 years and return to the role I loved best I would without any hesitation. But life doesn't afford us those chances.

I find it fascinating to watch the dynamic between Adrienne and Paul and her attitude to business and love. Through these aspects of the show we gain insight into the other lives of these complex women, and how we navigate our way through the next few months it is an adventure I am glad you the viewers can share with us.

Sometimes we endure harsh criticism for choices we make or things we say and that is just part of the many facets that being on a reality show entails. That being said onwards we go.

I love your comments it keeps us in touch with your perspective, so thank you for watching and taking the time.

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
