3 GIFs You Have to See From Next Week's Ep

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!

Kyle: Kim and Monty's Relationship Is Unique

Kyle talks the wedding and the beautiful examples of co-parenting surrounding her.

Sorry I'm late on my blog! Holiday craziness is in full effect.

I really enjoyed the time we spent with Yolanda on the boat. It was nice to be away from Los Angeles and just have some bonding time. I felt for Yolanda and could feel how nervous she was, regarding Bella. She wanted to get home to her and felt helpless in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea. Once home, it was nice to see what a wonderful stepfather David is to Yolanda's kids. I think it's admirable how Yolanda, David and Mohamed co-parent. A wonderful example of how blended families should be.

Eileen is great. It's so sweet how much she loves her niece. I also love my sister's girls like my own and can relate. Also, as a mom of all girls, I enjoy watching the mother and son relationship.

It's fun to see Eileen in her soap opera setting. She has been doing this a long time and is obviously great at what she does--with an Emmy to prove it!

Lisa V. getting her Star in Palm Springs is an honor I know she must be very proud of. Her name forever imprinted on the streets of a town I absolutely love.
And back to being a mom of boys, I can't say I blame Lisa V. for not loving that Max's girlfriend is so much older. Especially when in our minds, as mothers, they are always children. Even if they are "adults." 

We returned early from Europe, because Brooke had decided to move her wedding date up to make sure her father was strong enough to attended due to his health. It was supposed to be six months later. We hadn't chosen dresses for the wedding, yet, so I sent some pictures of dresses to Brooke for approval first. Although a somewhat "impromptu " wedding, it was absolutely beautiful. The bride and mother of the bride were radiant.

Kim and Monty's relationship is unique. They are truly best friends, and I so admire Kim's dedication to him.

Kyle Richards

Our family has known Thayer's family for almost 30 years. I was at the hospital when Thayer and his identical twin brother Taylor were born. Taylor and my daughter Farrah dated for eight years. I love them and their family and am so happy to have them be an official part of our family now.


Kim and Monty's relationship is unique. They are truly best friends, and I so admire Kim's dedication to him. They are both so lucky to have each other. Seeing the pictures of them so young and as new parents brought tears to my eyes. Kim and Monty are another beautiful example of co-parenting after divorce.

And lastly, yes, I did buy Chanel dog bowls. Hopefully they can't read what it says, because I am trying to keep them grounded and down to earth (wink, wink).

XO,
Kyle
