Lisa R Reflects on That Bittersweet Episode

The Joker

Lisa agrees that breaking and entering wasn't her best idea, but explains it was part of the quest to get answers from Kim.

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

Kim: Don't Mistake My Sadness for Weakness

Kim thinks Brandi and Kyle's fight at poker night had very little to do with her.

Today’s episode started exactly where we left off, back at Eileen’s poker night. I remember just wanting to leave so badly that I just kept on walking and didn’t even see the physical altercation between Brandi and Kyle. I was caught between a rock and a hard place. I mean one is my sister and one is my friend. I wanted to make it right, so I tried to speak to Kyle, but there was so much chaos between her and Brandi. Then the other girls joined in and at that point, I was frustrated and honestly wasn’t feeling well. I just wanted everyone to let me go home! This drama may have been about me at first, but it definitely ended up being about those two and whatever residual animosity they had towards one another from the past.


On the following day, my pain got even worse, so I spent the whole day getting tests done at the doctor’s. Next evening, I was admitted to the hospital. In my last blog post, I mentioned that I had been struggling with bronchitis and pneumonia for weeks. Well, the doctor said I had a fractured rib, ruptured disc, and hiatal hernia, which was caused by the increased pressure from coughing. No wonder I was in so much pain before poker night! I was in the hospital for nine days. But I'm happy to announce that I’m currently healthy and well!
Even though my family and I are going through some tough times right now, I feel stronger than ever because I need to and want to be there for Monty, my daughters, and son. All you moms out there know, we don’t get days off! Although it seems like I have a lot going on, that’s exactly what I love about my life! Planning my daughter’s wedding is the most beautiful thing I’ve ever done. I can’t believe my babies are all grown up, and I could not be more proud. Taking care of Monty has been bittersweet--it’s so painful to see my best friend slipping away, but at the same time, our relationship is stronger than ever. We’re treasuring every moment we have together. Don’t mistake my sadness for weakness. If I were not strong in my sobriety today, I could never do the things I’m doing. Thank you to those who have shared their kind words and support!
Speaking of family, my favorite part of the episode was seeing Yolanda with her son. Oh my goodness, I really related to them, because I’m going through the same thing with my son, Chad. Family dynamics change, and it does get lonely for both Chad and me now that our girls have left the nest. But this is also a special bonding time for us--yes, he’s totally going to have to hang out with his mom more, which both of us don't seem to mind at all! 
XO Kim
