Cast Blog: #RHOBH

Sin City

BH Producer Dave Rupel shares how the crew handled the dueling Las Vegas parties.

Hello, readers! Hope you enjoyed this week's (mostly) fun episode in Vegas. It was a bit odd having dueling parties, but after all the drama that we have gone through this year, it was a relief for everyone to let loose in Sin City.

Here's one of my favorite photos of the year -- 13 of our crew crammed into one, very happy elevator after we had wrapped shooting for the day and were headed off to have some fun of our own.

I love this crew so much! They are wonderfully talented and smart. And it's an utter joy to both work -- and play -- with them!

Each party had a different highlight for me. With Lisa's, it was easily the Chippendales. It was a fun show, they gave us great access, and it was a relief to watch Taylor have some fun -- and to watch she and Lisa grow closer. In the bar before the show, if you ordered certain drinks, you got a big Chippendale torso as the glass. I didn't have a drink, but bought one later as a souvenir.

The highlight of Adrienne's trip was, well, being at the Palms with the owner of the casino. This was my third trip to the Palms with the show and each one has been a real joy. The access Adrienne grants us is just incredible. That suite with a bowling alley in it? Unreal. The dance club Moon was so much fun to be in, even if I was working! Seeing Camille, Adrienne, Brandi, Dana, and Dedra tear up the dance floor with such abandon -- very nice!

But of course, what episode of RHOBH would be complete without a little unexpected drama. I'm referring to Kyle running into Kim at the shopping center. That truly wasn't planned. We were following Kyle spending time with her mother-in-law, Estella, because she wanted to touch base on her recovery from her facelift. When Kim showed up, the crew was thrown, but then Kim decided to join the shoot. We had no idea Kim was going to be so emotional on camera.

Thanks readers, for all your comments from last week's blog. Domestic violence isn't a common topic of conversation on reality shows, but it was part of Taylor's story this year. Several people commented on my blog that they had been the victims of domestic violence in their lives. If seeing something portrayed on our show encourages people to tell their stories and/or get help, I'm glad. I'm rooting for Taylor and her daughter Kennedy to heal and get stronger.

Until next week!

Brandi: I'm Always Here For You, Kim

Brandi focuses on the positive this week as this season's RHOBH comes to an end.

Hey Bravo Fans,

Today was a fabulous day--t was my baby Jake’s birthday. We got his favorite Oreo ice cream cake, and for our family celebration, it was perfection. I can’t believe he’s already eight. I had to hold back my tears when I realized I will never again use that number eight candle. #mommymoment

It has been a really exciting week for me. My Sonoma County chardonnay, Unfiltered Blonde, launched for pre-sales this week, and despite it being tax season, the first day alone was a huge success. Thank you! The website is up now at www.unfilteredblonde.com. The creation of the wine was an incredibly long and careful process, and I couldn’t be happier or more proud of my finished product. I’m sure you're all as excited as me that this week was the FINALE episode of BATSH-- crazy RHOBH reunion. 

I could talk about the she said, she said, she said… but let’s not and pretend we did. It’s been a long season, kind of centering on one night that really isn’t worth the attention it was given. I’m tired of it, it happened several months ago, I’m sure you’re tired of it. You know why? Because it’s old news and in the PAST! 

Eileen, your house is lovely. Sorry I said otherwise for the sake of a laugh. I really like Vincent, he is super cool, your little boy is adorable, you seem like a good stepmom, and I wish you and your family the very best.

Lisa R., I really loved you on my podcast. You made me laugh and rolled with punches. I really enjoyed our interview, and I enjoyed most of the season with you. I think that’s what I’m going to take away and forget about the rest. I think sometimes you make it harder on yourself with your Twitter feed, but I’m choosing not to engage. I really liked a side of you, and you seem to have a beautiful family.

Lisa V., I had a lot of fun with you and Ken. I will always have a special place in my heart for you guys. I wish Ken the best of health and a speedy recovery. 

Kyle, best wishes on you and your family’s endeavors. My sincerest wish is that you and Kim could be as close as you ever were in the near future.

You are a strong chica and I know your family is better for it.

Kim, love having you as a BFF. I’m always here for you, and I hope you are always here for me. You are a strong chica, and I know your family is better for it. You are hilarious, and I love our funny talks and text-offs. Laughter is the best medicine. I heart you.

Yo, my dear, dear Yo, I will see you soon. I love you, you are so strong and so brave! I know you are going to kick Lyme disease’s ass! Anything you need, just emoji me.

I want to thank all my supporters for always being there for me regarding all of my other endeavors, including my books, podcast, Celebrity Apprentice, app, my t-shirts, and finally my WINE and for allowing me to be me.

Ok guys, this is the big week. This is the Make*A*Wish Los Angeles Walk for Wishes Walkathon. Me and the boys pledged to try to raise $15,000--I have $12,625 so far. We need $2,375 by Friday at midnight, every dollar counts. Thank you!

I heart you all!

Xoxo
