What an episode! First of all, it was nice to get away with the ladies and connect outside of Los Angeles to celebrate Kim's sobriety.
The dinner party in Ojai was a bit tense and heated after Brandi told me to "shut the f--- up." My intentions were to simply ask Kim why she was upset. Brandi's language was completely inappropriate and made everyone feel uncomfortable, however, I accepted her apology and we moved on with the weekend.
I must say, it was nice for all of us to spend the day driving around the grounds and racing with each other in the golf carts, it was really fun and a great way to enjoy the day without any bickering. Also, a mud bath with seven other women is not exactly my idea of a relaxing spa day, but Kim did say it was the "clay from God" who can say no to that!?!
Yes, that was an annoying way to bring attention to someone. Especially since you could see that Kim was having a moment. If you were there for Kim, you maybe could have waited to see what was happening first before blurting out an attention seeking comment.
It was a private conversation, why was it your job to bring attention to their conversation!
Really! Adrienne has started a whole lot of drama on this show. Brandi just do the calling out!
You need to keep in mind it was YOU who said, "somebody is crying". You said it THREE times, each time raising your voice. You were the one calling attention to Kim and when you wouldn't stop saying it, Brandi said "STFU". If you were truly concerned about Kim, you would have gotten up and gone over to her, not shout "someone is crying" until you got everyones attention. If you didn't do what you did, Brandi would not have HAD to say that to you.
Wow Adrienne! I hope you and Taylor don't come back next season cause you guys are not why I watch the show.
You and Paul behaved so badly, it was embarrassing to watch. You, kyle, taylor, and kim are so confused about what class means. Class has nothing, absolutely nothing with how much money you have in the bank. If someone on that show has any class it is only Lisa and Yolanda for sure. Brandi although one of my favorites has some work to do, but at least she doesn't call herself, or believe that she is classy, like you and your husband, and other bunch of ordinary women that stick with you.
I'm sure whatever I have to say would go in one ear and out the other. If you can get out of your head long enough, please realize you're not doing yourself any favors fighting Brandi. The reason Lisa is so popular right now is because she's being the bigger person. Maybe you should try it.
It is upsetting to have personal things spilled out in such a manner, IMO Adrienne was wrong for what she said about Lisa, however, of all the housewives, Adrienne is one of the most benign characters. However, we don't know exactly what went down between Brandi and Adrienne. Clearly she is upset for some reason, and whether it's just the "Glanville temper," or if it was truly merited, Brandi regrets her actions and hopefully she will learn to bite her tongue on occasion.
Adrienne, Since you're so interested in your public persona, I hope you read the viewers' comments. If a lawsuit is in fact what is happening, you should feel terrible about yourself. You're chasing a single mom with little to no money who just had surgery. And, remember, defamation works both ways - you should consider whether or not Brandi told any lies, or if it was the truth. Hope you feel like the "winner" you are.
" a single mom with little to no money", then maybe she should exercise a little more restraint when she goes shooting off her mouth and being rude to people. Brandi is nothing but trouble.
like you never said f**k, and like another commenter said"suing someone with no money when you have a lot of money is just stupid. You are a phony, there is nothing to you. All you know is how to spend money and wear shoes, do you know what you say, ""the higher the shoe the closer to god. hey honey you can have shoes higher than the tallest building and you are far from ever being close to god. remember the 7 deadly sins, well you have a few of them.
Adrienne you have so much money and power yet you are so jealous of other people (especially Lisa).
You seemed like a strong and smart women in the previous seasons but now you are turning into a typical housewife!
The only mistake Adrienne made was trusting the wrong woman. If Adrienne did tell Brandi some secret about her family, shame on Brandi for repeating it. Now Brandi said there is more come, at this point I think she's making things up to impress Lisa. Stay strong Adrienne, you have done nothing wrong. You have a lot of fans out here.
Adrienne doesn't seem to have a problem at all calling others out on anything. Even stuff that is based solely on hearsay.
Odd how she is effected when the shoe is on the other foot - or should I say hoof. Oh no, don't say that either because that offends her.
How is sueing someone that doesn't have money and is trying to make it on her own make things better? I mean really? You have enough money, how would that make you feel better? Ok so she (Brandi) shouldn't have said anything about your personnel life but it just makes you look so much worse! Your on reality TV!
IF and I say IF you say a lie to the girls and it is aired on the show it is fair game and you might be called out on it.
Adrienne, I think you just need to take a break and focus on your family. You've has a rough year and I think it is getting to you. I dont think you are a horrible person, I just think you need to take a step back and regroup. Stop trying to control everything and everyone, admit when you are wrong and have wronged others and make sincere peace with them. You seem to be filled with double standards on the show and I hope you are watching yourself and growing.
Never, ever, tell your secrets to anyone, even if they're your best friend at the time. They'll always use it as amunition. IF this is true,( I'm not believing it until i see proof), it's no ones busiess. You all deserve privacy too. Brandi needs to keep hers shut. She looks foolish.
Good luck o you and Paul. Happy Holidays!
You are getting beaten up in these posts because of your actions towards Brandi. Please don't discount the perspective that can be found in public opinion.... I hope it might persuade you to change your course of action - all these people can't be wrong :-)
Bonz25 What public opinion? Are you referring to a lot of those who posted on Brandi's blog? She's a mean, vengeful person and not just to Adrienne. I see quite a lot of the same names here who were over at her blog who were kissing her ass over there dogging Adrianne. Last season we got to see her friends, lol. It's easy to see why they're all friends.
Wrong! It's not a "lot" that you called it of isolated people loving Brandi and disliking Adrienne. It's the overwhel,minmg majority, I looked and it's not even close to being the same poeple over and over. And Adrienne KNOWS this translates to her being A "Bethenny" with shoes or whatever else she wants to create with the Bravo money making machine. Adrienne is not held well with the MAJORITY, and like it or not, it's in black and white, and these blogs are in direct comparision to the feelings out there, check out twitter. Social media absolutely tells you where you stand. And the proof will be there, let's see how Brandi's book does, and then Adriennes'.
I have watched since day one and until this season have always liked Adrienne. I do believe she is/was going through a tough time and her perception is off because she always seemed more kind and peaceful in past seasons. That being said...alll that I read on Kyle, Lisa, and the other blogs line up with what I feel and what I am reading on Adrienne's...not just Brandi's.
YES, it IS the public's opinion...not just people who support Brand-- and those of us who do not condone Adrienne or Kyle's behavior don't necesarrily think that Brandi does not have some work to do herself, particularly on being more tactful.
Let me keep this straight......
You accuse Lisa of selling stories to the tabloids and when she denies it, you call her a liar. When Brandi will not "back you up" in your version of the truth, you accuse her of drug & alcohol abuse and of being an unfit parent. You were PROVEN to be WRONG and don't have the decency to admit it."
Now you use the words, "Asassination of Character" "Defamation" & "Slander" when someone leaks truths that you expect to keep hidden. You are PAID to be on a reality show, and you expect people you "out" to respect your privacy?
claudia9 Um, Lisa was the one who started the defamation by insulting Adrienne...maloof hoof? Lisa has a way of dropping a comment and then backing away as if it's a joke. If someone 'joked' about her businesses I am certain she would not take lightly to that person.
ARE YOU SERIOUS??? A funny little play on words (like Lisa always does) is not even comparable to Adrienne accusing her of selling a slanderous story to a tabloid. Further, Lisa does seem to take the teasing anyone passes her way just fine... Also interesting, A accuses Lisa of doing the VERY thing it seems she did to Brandi...maybe she thought Lisa did that to her,because that is how SHE opporates??
RHOBHbiggestfan jazzercise claudia9 Doesn't it go something like this? "Mirror, mirror on the wall....." what we hate the most about others is exactly what we hate the most about ourselves. Seems like whenever one is accused, it is usually the accuser, themselves that emulate that which they condemn.
You have had a very rough year. As with Camille & Taylor in previous episodes, it takes time to get past all that pain, so I'll check back with you next year. Hopefully you will be doing much better.
So since your not posting this week I guess we have to add to last weeks .... you are out of control girl. Your on a reality show come on. And what doesn't get said on the show there is this great source of information out there called "the internet" perhaps you have heard of it. So we now all know your secret which would not be so bad if you would just stop lying. Not fun getting caught in lies is it.
Didn't you realize when you went on a, "reality" show that things might come out that you did not want known? Be honest. It will make friends and business associates wonder if you are telling them the truth. You and Paul should not have made a scene at Mauricio's event. That was in very poor taste for someone who is supposed to be in the, "upper class of society." Kim should have waited about saying something. That was not the time or the place to bring that up.
BlindGossip has an item. The spiller and the liar. This is not just about Brandi's claim at the SUR lunch. When Brandi tells Lisa in the preview that things could get nastier she's not kidding. Remember that Brandi knows "the help" in Adrienne's house. The help knows everything about your lifestyle, and they love to gossip. There's so much more. Yummmmmm.
What Adrienne? No blaming it on Brandi blog this week for your nasty behavior? I hope when you were screaming "F-her" at Mauricio's event and stated you were "done", it meant you were done with this show. Kyle was practically wiping your butt & falling all over herself as you walked out the door. Good Riddance!!
Oh please be done but if the previews are to be trusted we still have to deal with you for another couple of weeks....
whatever1 And she was repeatedly calling Brandi a drug addict which no one seemed to mind at all. I guess if you don't have a legal slush fund of sue money then no one gets upset when you're grossly slandered in public. Beverly Hills darling, sue, sue, sue.
distressed whatever1 It's going to be hard for Brandi to defend herself against the drug stuff. She just admitted to Kim and all of us last week that for a while she drank to much and indulged in drugs. She and Adrienne were friends and I'm sure Adrienne knows a lot of stuff about her. There is no big scandal here as Brandi has already admitted to it.
Adrienne, don't you think that calling someone an unfit parent and a drug addict is defamation of character, sure it is. Comments you made to Lisa on the reunion show about selling stories,
defamation of character and slander. Wasn't it your ex-husband who said, and I quote, "Friends don't sue friends." You're lucky Lisa didn't sue you. Kyle is kissing your backside
because Mauricio is your real estate agent, and there's a fat commission in the sale of the
mansion. Lady, if you can't handle the heat, what are you doing on a reality show?
Wait what Mauricio is her agent to. Hmmmm Camile and Kelsey now Ad and Paul no wonder she was kissing there *&^& on the way out of the party. Mauricio must have had a sit down with Kyle and told her to play nice with Adrienne this season.
Adrienne- I'm so sorry that you were the bunt of Brandi's, again, trailer trash mouth off! I get embarassed for the other girls almost everytime she opens her mouth. However, with all due respect, the way you responded to what Kim told you was really disrespectful to Kyle and Mauricio. I can completely understand the anger you and Paul felt at what Brandi did and the sudden shock of the moment, but it was pretty selfish of the two of you to attack her at that moment. I'm also very sorry to hear of your impending divorce. Prayers and peace to the two of you and your children. Lastly, women like Brandi speak and behave according to what they actually are.....immature and classless. It's sad that by the end of the season she will have created so many critics of her actions that she'll likely crawl away from the show for sheer embarrassment. It's hard to publically watch a woman with such potential shoot herself in the foot simply by opening her mouth.
Brandi reminds me of a jealous "mean girl," she put Taylor down about writing a book, then she writes a book. Makes fun of Adrienne for saying she got a book deal. Bashes Kim about doing meth in the bathroom all night, then on camera she said she is high on prescription pills. Then turns around and talks about a secret that "her friend" had. I have lots of friends and sometimes they lie, so what, they have their reasons as long as they aren't making up things about me who cares, to each is there own. I would NEVER do that to a FRIEND just because she lies about certain things. She would have to do something major. I'm loyal to my friends and even though my friendship has ended with some of them, I would NEVER give up their secrets, thats just wrong PERIOD.
I agree with Brandi that Adrienne isn't the sharpest tool. All she could say during that fight was "You lie! You lie!". She also seems to have forgotten how upset she became when Taylor and Russell l threatened a lawsuit. How was saying Brandi was on drugs and a bad mother not character assassination. I wish she would go back after you, someone needs to put you in your place. Maybe all the negative backlash from the viewers will get through to you. I hope this is your last season.
@RileyRoo It would be difficult for Brandi to prove character assassination. After all, she said last week that for a while she drank too much, indulged in drugs, and fu*ked too many guys (her words). She didn't say she'd been a bad mother, but is hard to imagine that anyone in this state was Mother of the Year. Adrienne knew her during this phase, so she probably knows a bit about what Brandi was up to. Adrienne was angry when she found out what Brandi had said about her, and she screamed back some info of her own. I am not defending Adrienne, but Brandi likes to claim that she is all about the truth. If she is going to dish it out, she needs to be able to take it. I found it odd that with all of the accusations Adrienne threw at her, the only one that she questioned was the part about her sleeping until 3PM. I like Brandi, but she needs to understand that always being honest is not the same as breaking a confidence.
@RileyRoo Right on! Just a few weeks ago Adrienne was whining about Lisa being angry with her over her character assassination Adrienne is hiding out or waiting for a professional writer ala Teresa Guidice to put a spin on her bs hoping to change her image. I wish Brandi would counter sue Adrienne's wealthy a$$. Talk about pit bull. Someone with Adrienne's wealth trying to break Brandi's bank. Single mom whose family fortune she didn't inherit. Let's face it, Adrienne has never struggled financially one day of her life. Anyone who thinks what she is doing is right, is as delusional as Adrienne. The lesson Adrienne needs to learn is that she is on a reality show, any skeleton or family secret is bound to find it's way to the public arena.
I can't believe how Paul being a supposed upstanding physican would talk so ugly to Brandi. If he were my doctor I'd never go back to him. Brandi did nothing to you so own up to your own issues and leave her and everyone else alone. New season...new foul mouth lady~ugh!
Regardless of my fanship, I don't think what Brandi did, starting with the Ojai dinner where she obviously set the stage for the big reveal was right, and no matter how I view your portrayal on Bravo, I think it was low budget to do that to you....I believe at least 2 others at the Ojai table knew what was going down....I realized as I saw the scene where Brandi started talking about the "the subject", it was an attempt to make you uncomfortable and put you on the spot.....this same mean girl strategy happened to me when I was 15....and it was at the cafeteria table in HS....talk about high school behavior....it took me years to put it all together, and when I did, the motive was jealousy, pure and simple...because of being friends with someone else.....I don't think women do this kind of thing to each other without the motive of jealousy for whatever reason.....while I believe you and Paul could have handled your interaction with Brandi differently...but she was wrong, but clearly has never mentally left high school...I never confronted my mean girl....we have connected over the years, but when I realized she deliberately tried to hurt me in front of others...I dismissed her mentally....and she still sends me Christmas cards....and I trash them, she must wonder why after at least 5 yrs of no return on her cards or a response to "lets get together", I have not contacted her...let her keep wondering...do the same to Brandi...
FlutterBy When Brandi brought up the subject at the STFU dinner table Adrienne could have simply kept her mouth shut. Going in to an elaborate story that contradicts what Brandi knows was just egging Brandi on.... (also, I think bravo had plenty to do with the sudden subject change at that table. It led into the story line they wanted.))
Adrienne - what I don't understand is why you would sue Brandi for revealing something personal that you told her after you were so "outraged!" by Taylor's husband threatening the same thing to Camille? He never even said he was going to sue you, yet you were threatened by his behavior. Isn't that exactly you now?
