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

Kyle: This Was Brandi's Master Plan

Kyle believes Brandi has purposefully been driving a wedge between her and her sister.

After dropping Alexia off at college, I wanted to distract myself by spending time with friends and laughing. I thought a day at a spa with the girls would be fun. All was good until the wine tasting! The wine tasting was an absolute mistake. The hotel was going to set up a day for us. I didn't know many of the details, except that we would have massages and be eating lunch there. Kim has always maintained that she is fine being around others drinking at social events. However, being put into a situation where we are supposed to be interacting, like a wine tasting where she couldn't even participate, felt awful. I never would have intentionally put Kim in that situation. In fact, I offered to leave but Kim insisted she was fine. We didn't stay long and got out of there.


I had been looking forward to poker night, because I really like Eileen and wanted to get to know her better. Besides, I had never played poker before and thought it would be fun to learn.

Eileen's home is lovely. Brandi's rude comments about Eileen's home were uncalled for. You would think after throwing the wine at Eileen she would be bending over backwards to be nice to her.

Almost from the moment we started playing poker, things were extremely uncomfortable. I could see Kim was "off" but wasn't quite sure how to handle the situation.
One thing that was very clear to me in watching this is that Brandi is not my friend. Never has been. I have tried to give her the benefit of the doubt but always kept her at arms' length. To see her pretending to be friends with me in the car ride to Eileen's and then turning on me made things abundantly clear to me. Brandi can't be a friend to anyone. Including my sister.


Brandi clearly has been driving a wedge between my sister and me, which seems to have been her master plan from the beginning.

Her comments about me always being jealous of Kim's career couldn't be further from the truth. That is not how we were raised. My mom always taught us that any success the three of had ( Kathy, Kim, and Kyle) was a "feather in all our caps."

As a child, you aren't thinking of your "career." In fact, often I would hate that I had to work, because I would be missing something like a friend's birthday party. Brandi pretending she knows us, our history, or anything about our relationship is hurtful and frustrating. She is a new person in our lives whom we have no history with. She makes these comments to be mean and cause Kim to question her relationship with me. Apparently it's working.

What Brandi was calling jealousy was actually concern. Perhaps Brandi always assuming everyone is jealous is her projecting.

I went to the bathroom and Kim followed me in. Brandi seems to not have even wanted Kim to come to the bathroom to talk to me.

I whispered for obvious reasons, but Kim directly talked about what was going on with her that night. Kim told me she had taken a pill because she had been in pain. I was disappointed but felt she was being more open than in the past. At the very least, it was a situation we could deal with, because she was communicating openly about what was happening. We hugged and left the bathroom, and I thought everything was OK between us. My sister has been under a lot of pressure taking care of her ex-husband, Monty. If she had slipped, it would have been understandable, and the fact that we had talked about it made me feel better. Next thing I know Kim says to me "thanks for doing that," says she is leaving, and is clearly upset with me.

Kim being mad at me made no sense, which made me more concerned for the situation and her well-being. I wanted to pull her away from everyone to speak privately but Brandi wasn't allowing us to, as though she somehow needed to "protect" my sister from me, when clearly my sister needed a loved one to make sure she was OK (which is why she followed me into the bathroom). Brandi was putting her arm up and blocking me from being able to talk to my sister. Many things are going through my head at this point: Concern for my sister and for our relationship that we have worked so hard on and the fear that a manageable (yet concerning) situation might spiral out of control, because one person seemed to be using it to her advantage in a dangerous way. 

I was extremely frustrated that this person, who is not family or anyone I consider close, is keeping me from my sister. She put her arm up to block me, and I first said, "Please don't do that." I then pushed her arm down to stop her from blocking me from Kim. As Kim was leaving and Brandi was walking out with her and blocking me, I pulled her arm back to stop her from keeping Kim and me apart.

It is very clear to me that Brandi takes advantage of Kim when she is at her most vulnerable and wants her to believe that she is the only one that cares or understands her.

Kyle Richards

I simply wanted to get to my sister out of concern. The last person I wanted Kim with was a drunk Brandi.

Watching Kim and Brandi talking outside it is very clear to me that Brandi takes advantage of Kim when she is at her most vulnerable and wants her to believe that she is the only one that cares or understands her. Brandi also is using my sister to look like she is taking care of Kim and distracting us from Brandi's own obvious issues.

This was the end of Brandi's and my "friendship." And the beginning of another bumpy road in Kim's and my relationship.

Until next week...
Thanks for watching.
XO,
Kyle
