It's Adrienne's World

Brandi comments on Adrienne's behavior at Kim and Kyle's parties -- and defends Taylor.

Oh boy where to start. First let me apologize for missing my blog last week, I have been on a whirlwind press tour for my new book Drinking and Tweeting and other Brandi Blunders (shameless plug)and have barely had time to sleep, let alone do anything else.

Kim has a new nose revealing party, and I have to say I think she looks really really great. Attending Kim's nose reveal party was her plastic surgeon, Dr.Gregorios who did her nose job. Adrienne attended this party and decided to, on multiple occasions, say it was OK but Paul could have done a better job. This is an insult to not just to the doctor but also to Kim. I found Adrienne's comments to be in extremely poor taste. She then later tried to poorly recover from her rude comments.

Kyle arrives to the nose party with Kennedy and Portia and I can honestly say Kennedy looked happier then I have ever seen her look.

OK so here it goes and don't be shocked but I don't think the women were very fair to Taylor in this episode. Yes, Taylor is a mess drinking too much and in need of serious support. Taylor has been through a lot and is clearly and emotional roller coaster and making rash decisions. When a anyone goes through a hard time in life (divorce, deaths, etc.), it's their friends and family they should be able to lean on and count on for support.

Taylor like myself does not have family in southern California, so during a very dark depressing couple of years of not being in control and questionable behavior it was my friends who stepped in and held me up when all I wanted to do was fall down. My friends had play dates with the boys and sleepovers with my children when I felt I couldn't cope. I'm just saying sometimes we need to lean on people. Also I don't think we are getting the full story here. . .did Kyle pick up Kennedy from the house, or school? Clearly there was a plan to meet at the party but what was discussed before etc.

Also we all knew exactly who Taylor was dating at the time because it was all over the press. I don't know why but I feel like their is more to this scenario then we all know.

Regardless it's definitely not party chatter or mean girl gossip. Why on earth is this a conversation being had with Adrienne, Faye, and Marisa -- who said herself she doesn't even know Taylor? I'm not sure why I feel this way, but I just feel like some of these women get off when others -- even their BFs and those less fortunate than themselves -- fail. I mean would you rather have Kennedy with tipsy Taylor right now or having fun with Portia?

Moving on. . .The white party! Kyle's white party is the first time I will be seeing Paul and Adrienne since our big blow up. In the car on the way to the party, Paul and Adrienne have a confusing conversation about speaking to their lawyer or not speaking to him. . .Plain and simple there was a threat of lawsuit, which required me to hire a lawyer to defend myself. The other funny thing about their car ride over is that Adrienne said I didn't have money for anything but plastic surgery. . . Wow! The two surgeries I did have (my boobs and my po-po done) were both on my ex-husbands dime. Now, if anyone shouldn't be talking plastic surgery it's Adrienne because clearly she has had more then all of us combined and is either getting it for free or at a discounted rate, which shows in the work.

Once at the party Adrienne and Lisa collide and during their hellos Adrienne gets her body makeup on Lisa. Lisa brings up the fact that on two separate occasions Adrienne has ruined her furniture. Rather then apologize or offer to reimburse Lisa for ruining her furniture, she just shrugs it off as any rich entitled person without a conscience would. It's Adriennes world and we are all just lucky to be there.

I arrive with two long time friends and am chewing my gum HARD, like a truck driver a sign of my ever present and growing anxiety. I just want this all to be done.

I printed out all the email exchanges and tweets between Berni, myself and our lawyers and even brought copies of my bills. During our conversation they admit to hiring a lawyer to deal with me because they want to control what comes out of my mouth. I show Paul some of the Facebook, email, and tweets that Bernie put out to the public about me and my children and he says he will fire Bernie. Everyone joins in the conversation and Ken lets Paul have it. Sooo sexy!

My relationship with Ken and Lisa is just simply that they feel like family to me. I jokingly flirt with Ken because Lisa is a secure woman and doesn't mind and that is it. Now back to the dance floor to find my real boyfriend.

Yolanda is so smart to keep skipping these parties!

Brandi: You Can't Confirm What Didn't Happen

Brandi questions some of the ladies' motives, plus gives an interesting update on her relationship with LeAnn. 

Hey, My Bravoistas!

I’m in my American Airlines' seat 36 hours later, flying back home from NYC, thankful to be on a safe path home. My prayers go out to the families and loved ones of the downed German airliner in the French Alps this morning. I cannot imagine the pain being experienced by these families at this moment, which shockingly has led me to add a new person into my flight prayer today...my children’s stepmom. Don’t get me wrong--not everything is yet copasetic, but my children love her, so she is now in the “flight prayer,” differences aside. Now on a happier RHOBH note, last night’s WWHL with Andy was sooooo fun! No drama for once!

NEWS FLASH! Please watch for my new Sonoma County Chardonnay “Unfiltered Blonde,” to launch in April!

As I look over this past season, all I can say is it’s been an odd one. There were so many fun moments that got lost in the drama and so many weeks of fun you never saw at all. I wish you had, but I'm not in control of everything we get to see. I’d like to remember having fun with Kim “stalking” my now boyfriend J.R. That was such a crazy fun girls' night, Lisa R. being chased by killer bees, Yolanda and her Facetime confusion and meeting her family for the second time this--time in Holland, the Foster Foundation Extravaganza, “singing” at Lisa V.’s birthday party, and Kyle pretending to be a caring sister and owning yachts and planes…haha.
Ok, I’ll behave.

Here we are at the last episode of the season, yet, it seems most are still stuck in the beginning. I wish we weren’t, and I would dearly like to leave “Poker Night” behind. However, one person continues to make it the focal point of every interaction from when it happened and far into the three-part reunion.

This episode opens with Rinna tearing down a swing set, but her home interviews are still about what she perceives as Kim’s issues to be, not the actual touching moment of what the swing set tear-down symbolizes or her own family (I can't wait for her daughters to write their Brooke Shields-style memoir when they are age appropriate). LR says she feels sorry for Kim and cares about Kim and wishes Kim well. The truth is a lot less pretty. Some people have been attacking Kim’s sobriety online this week, but we won’t name names. BTW, Kim is sober and not online. She is busy caring for serious ill family members and driving back and forth to doctors and hospitals and being strong for her family.

Next we see Nicky Hilton’s book signing--sister Paris and mom Kathy Hilton are there. Looks like a great party and congrats to Nicky on her style book. Camille looks gorgeous as usual. Kyle angrily flips her hair, because Kim was wearing a shirt that she carries at “her” shop, but didn’t buy it there...whatever. Then Kyle whispers about her sister Kim to Lisa V. and Camille.
Kyle then tells them she is confused and impatient that Kim hasn’t confronted me over her third-hand Lisa R. gossip. She states Kim WILL be hurt and broken hearted over what “I” said… Kyle seems way too overy excited about that happening, which I find kind creepy. Why would anyone WANT their sister to be hurt or in pain?!

The preparations for Adrienne’s party are in full swing next. Lisa V. is fretting it, Kim is casually discussing the intervention GOSSIP with her makeup artist before the party, I’m getting ready and waiting for my friends and my date.

Adrienne’s party is the big finale of our journey this year. Everyone is there, and Adrienne always excels at events. So here we go. First off, my mind was not on the party at all. My father was recently hospitalized, and I didn’t leave his side for two weeks. It was very serious, but I had to return home to my boys. He was still not conscious, but I needed to get home to run my household--a party was the last place I wanted to be, but I had promised. That’s why I decided to bring the few people that I felt I could depend on in that moment. My friends and J.R. have been there for me during my father’s health scare and over more then a month of hospitalization--that was and is what remains what’s important to me.

The party seems like it was fun for a lot of people who weren’t involved in Kyle and Lisa. R.’s drama. I wish I were one of them, but in a way I was. As much as Kyle relished telling Kim the hurtful gossip she heard from LR, what she wanted to happen didn’t happen. There was no argument between Kim and I. We were happy to see each other. We spoke easily. I was busy worrying about my Dad; she was busy with her family.

What we saw on the finale was an efficient Kim quietly confronting Lisa R., then leaving Lisa R.'s table somewhat amused. Lisa R. couldn’t confirm the veracity of her gossip, because I DIDN’T SAY IT. Thanks again to Bravo for showing the truth in a flashback last week.

So, Kim knew who was who and what was what. The entertainment of the night was provided by Lisa R. going radio silent while Kyle begged for corroboration on her dramatic intervention gossip. Watching Yolanda, Eileen, and Lisa V. urge Lisa R. to support Kyle and verify her hurtful gossip was almost amusing. You can't confirm what didn't happen, can you?

In the end, I left the party early. Why? Not because of a past friendship with Lisa V. It's not her that made me cry--I was crying for my father, my dad! I was in no place to be at a superficial party, discussing a superficial incident with a person who was clearly not a friend, not that night. I said I would show up, and I did. After that, I wanted to be with my real close friends and family. Since this party my dad came out of the ICU and after 2 entire months and after a long stressful time I want to thank Dr. Allen Morris and all the doctors and nurses at Mercy General Hospital of Sacramento for saving my dad's life yet agin for the second time in 15 years. He is doing much better and continuing his hope of a full recovery. I am so thankful to all the people who were there for me and continue to be here for my family and I.

THAT is what life’s about, being with the people who truly love and care about you and the feelings are reciprocated.

As you hear, at the end of the finale, I am wistful, yet, wiser, and I think in a stronger place. I love and loved being there for Kim and being Kim’s friend, and I love that she was, is, and has been here for me. Even more so, I'm grateful and blessed to have Yolanda in my life; she is no bullsh--. Even when suffering herself, she is still so selfless. Yo is very special to me, I love her, she gets me, we have fun together, and I value every moment we spend together. I always will. As for the rest, I hope to share laughs and fun again, maybe tears, but hopefully only joy.

Peace Out. (deuces MFs--JK)

XOXO,
