Hello to you all, as we welcome you back, to join us in the paradise of Lanai.
One would think that being on this tropical island, surrounded by all its beauty, would be conducive to relaxing and enjoying the celebrations. But things were simmering and feelings were running high with regard to Kim's strange behavior. Her stories didn't tally up with the exasperating tales she had relayed to us. I was beginning to lose patience. After so many months of feeble excuses, it didn't matter to me with whom she arrived or what paltry tale or trivial excuse was made. I didn't want it to ruin our break. And I knew my input would have been irrelevant to her anyway.
Kyle and Mauricio were not content to accept her dismissive behavior and questioned her relentlessly at the dinner table. It was an uncomfortable scenario. I tried to support Kyle and urged her not to cry, as this was the birthday dinner and I knew it had great potential for disaster if tempers were unleashed. At what point do you come to the conclusion that some things never change? We had endured six months of a plethora of excuses, of no shows, of fabricated reasons. It was becoming a joke -- just not a funny one.
The next morning, it was the repeat. Kyle wanted her sister to join us, but 30 minutes later -- still no Kim, many calls to the room placed, a boat waiting in the harbor, and us sitting in the bus undecided as to what decision to take.
Maybe the hop over the wall wasn't necessarily the wisest choice, but we knew it would bring results! Voila Madame Richards at 11:30 am decided to wake up. Bear in mind it was 1:30 pm Los Angeles time, so it’s even harder to understand what the problem was with making it downstairs on time.
So we left. And then I saw the footage of how they showed no remorse at keeping us waiting. They seemed content to indulge themselves in their own company with no thought for the fact that we were here as a group and at Mauricio’s invitation.
Boating was a fun day. I was definitely warming to Brandi, realizing that like me she had an appetite for fun and didn't take herself too seriously. Even when I pulled the strings on her non-existent bikini, rendering her almost completely naked, she did not bat an eye. Haha. Me thinks, she’s a likely recruit for my mischief!
That night, dinner was fractious. There was no possible chance of ignoring the cavalier attitude of Ken and Kim, and, as you witnessed, they left early, frustrated by Kyle's persistence and expectance of an apology, which was never going to happen. Some may think Brandi is too blatant with her remarks. In my opinion when one enters this domain we hold ourselves up for scrutiny. That is the nature of this beast. If you have something to hide, my recommendation when you're asked to sign up for a reality show would be to run for the hills. Our business became your business, when we made the decision to enter in to your living room and share our lives with you.
In regard to other episodes and many of your comments -- many, many of you question my judgment as to how I could have ignored so many telltale signs as to who my real friends were. Just try to remember that all the footage you see as we proceed with the story are things I am viewing at the same time as you. We are not aware of things that run in the same episode. If somebody is disloyal or talks behind your back you don't have a clue. Until now. . .
So I must sign off, as this blog is in danger of becoming a novel! I leave you, our loyal viewer to continue following our exhausting journey and look forward to your remarks that keep us in touch with. . .reality Love always Lisa
