Richards Sisters Tag Team Hour
Brandi reflects on how nervous she was going into the reunion and which ladies she'd fight for.
The reunion -- leading up to this reunion I had almost never felt this much anxiety, (besides possibly promoting my book), in my entire life. I had to be walked to my seat and do breathing exercises to calm my shakes before the show.
Even though we were all in an OK place at the time of the reunion, I knew that this would soon change. I was relieved that Adrienne didn't come, but then again I kind of figured she wouldn't if she couldn't bring her lawyer with her.
It seemed that Yolanda was the first to be in the hot seat. I would first like to say that Yolanda IS a straight shooter and doesn't try to stir the pot, but really tries to help people resolve things. I love Yolanda and have never sat around gossiping about the other women with her. That just isn't our speed. I called Yolanda after Adrienne's party to see how it went and she as any good friend would do told me what went down with Marisa. I thanked her and said I would take it up with Marisa. Funny enough it went down EXACTLY as Yolanda said and nothing like what Marisa tried to make it seem.
When Kyle started in with Yolanda I really thought, "Wow this is a bit much knowing she had just flown in from her treatment in Florida." So of course I defended her. Yolanda was an amazing friend to Kim in Paris so it really pissed me off when Kim started to have a go at Yo also. Did I get a little bitchy with some of my comments? I did, but it was like Richards sister tag-team hour against Yo.
I wasn't there when Kyle and Kim say Yolanda trashed Lisa but if had actually happened that way I PROMISE it would have made the cut to our TV screens. I 100 percent believe Yolanda, the other two women have such a history of back-stabbing and twisting peoples words that I don't even have to see it to know the truth.
As you will soon see the "sisters" tag team moments come and go as the flip on each other. I understand that Kyle wants to be Lisa's best friend, but I don't think trying to take her other friends out one by one by throwing us under the bus is the way to win Lisa back.
Taylor seemed very vulnerable and sweet the day of the reunion and I believed her apology to Yolanda was sincere. I don't know the true story of w#mce_temp_url#hether she hooked up with a married man who was already separated or if she helped break up a family. I don't have all the information on this one because I've never talked to his wife. Therefore Taylor got a bit of a pass from me on that.
I think Lisa was right on when she said Kyle and Mo became close to Adrienne just to get the listing on the house, the house has sold and they don't speak anymore. . .speaks for itself.
The time to be there for a friend is through their divorce and break up and they weren't.
I am really glad that Faye wasn't invited to the reunion because that would have gotten even uglier much faster. Lisa is an amazing human being, mentor, and friend, and Yolanda is the same. I would "cut a bitch" for either on of them. Kyle, Kim, and Taylor can be fun at times but those are the kind of girls you have to watch yourself around.
Until next week.
