An Opportunity for Change

Kim explains why she forgave Taylor and what she wanted going into the Reunion.

Hi everyone! Part 1 of the Reunion is here!

As far as Adrienne not coming, I think she needed to take some time to figure out how to handle such a sensitive situation and think about what to discuss or not to discuss. I do wish is that she would eventually come back on board with all of us! Most of the season revolved around Adrienne's situation and how we were dealing with this issue, and what we could and couldn't say about it! I only wish she would have come to the Reunion to let people know she feels!

When asked if I had any regrets about telling Paul and Adrienne about Brandi comments, I said that I didn't and I think I did the right thing! Could my timing have been better? Well. . .sure! But I did call them before Mauricio's event, and no one called me back! What Brandi said would effect them and their children (obviously it had an effect on Adrienne). I took Adrienne and Paul into the corner, and I figured they would take in this information and discuss it before talking to Brandi!! I did not think that they would react the way they did! I really do regret the situation turned into a shouting match at Mauricio's event. Certainly this could have been handled differently all the way around!

My big question remained. . .was there a lawsuit filed? Brandi said she's being sued! Adrienne said she wasn't suing anybody! Finally, Brandi cleared it up for me. Adrienne sent a letter to Brandi’s friend Geneva, which discussed what Brandi had said. In return, Brandi had her divorce attorney respond, hence this is where her legal bills came from. The exact story with all the details seemed so confusing to all of us during the season!!!

Most importantly, in regard to the master cleanse, I want to be absolutely clear that Yolanda and I NEVER made plans! She did NOT call me, and I did NOT call her after Ojai! There were no messages left on her machine, and there were none left on mine! No emails were exchanged!

In fact, as she said at the reunion, the ONLY plans that she ever made were with Sally, our production manager! I NEVER spoke to Sally about this! It was very manipulative of Yolanda to say this!! If you want to rewind your DVR, it's all there!!! She only spoke to Sally about this, so I truly don't understand why she feels the need to lie about this.

She tried to make me look bad at Dar Maghreb, and now again at the reunion, I really don’t understand why she’s made such a big issue over this! For someone who says she has my back, and is always looking out for me, why is she lying about me and wanting me to look like I am irresponsible!?! It’s no secret that I’ve struggled, and I have not been always been reliable. I have worked very hard this last year on myself, in my relationships, on being on time, and to improve myself in many other ways. It hasn't been easy. It’s very important to me that today I am accountable, reliable honest, and on top of my game! So when someone tries to make up lies or discredit me in anyway, I will defend myself!

I noticed she was doing the same thing to my sister, when she accused Kyle of not bringing her any water! She said she just came from Cedars Sinai, and was very sick! That was the day we had a big shoot, and we had been there for hours. Lots and lots of people running around, camera crews, wardrobe, hair, makeup, and all the Housewives. Typical crazy photo shoot day! All of sudden, we notice Yolanda just sitting in the back of her car in the driveway. I went to speak with her and she barely spoke to me. I thought she was mad at me. Only later did we find out she had been in the hospital, and had been sick. We were there for about two hours, and then she was gone! I think she was trying to make my sister look bad by saying she didn't even offer her a glass of water! I think Yolanda and I started off well, but somehow our friendship has taken a turn for the worse.

As far as Taylor and I go, I’m no expert, and I was only trying to offer some advice from my own experience, as I felt scared for her. When my drinking was at its worst, people came and talked to me about it. I just wanted to share my experiences with her, as I think having people talk behind our backs about it isn’t constructive. She seemed to respond very well. I know there were some feelings shared on Taylor's blog that Andy mentioned, but that’s OK. It’s all good now, and I’m glad we were able to clear the air at the reunion. Taylor looks beautiful and she sounds great. I'm very happy for her, her new relationship, and her new life with Kennedy!

I feel bad for what Kyle and Lisa are going through with their friendship. I remember the two of them being the best of friends! I do know that Kyle loves Lisa with all her heart, and I believe Lisa loves her too.

Lastly, Kyle brought up what Yolanda had said to both of us about Lisa in Paris. This is what Yolanda said; "Lisa's not your friend", "Who's there for you? Me! I am!", "I'm the one who came to your room to check on you!" "I'm the one who's been calling!", "Lisa is ‘full of s---."  She accused Lisa of not caring about me, and only doing this for the show.

When I came home from the trip and I saw Lisa, I realized I had fallen into a trap with Yolanda. I still think it was wrong for Lisa to have talked behind my back, but I’ve known Lisa for a very long time (much longer than Yolanda) and I don’t appreciate that. We may not always agree on things, but I believe Lisa has my best interests at heart, just as I do for her. I love her very much and I know she loves me. I know Lisa and I have had our moments and differences of opinion, but she’s such a caring person. It seems to me that Yolanda is making a pattern of untrue statements and allegations, and I don't understand why.

I really want the Reunions to be an opportunity for us to get our feelings out and clarify things for each other. Although they can get heated, I hope they are a chance to move forward in our friendships, and not just throw darts at each other.

Have a great week everyone and we'll see you at Part 2 of the Reunion next week!

Brandi: Someone Poked the Wrong Bear

Brandi thinks Lisa Rinna shouldn't be surprised by Kim's reaction. 

Hello Bravo Peeps,

Tonight I’m finally home in L.A. with my family!
I can’t tell you how nice it is to just slow down for a while. My mind is on recipes and new kids' projects this week. When I catch up, I will for sure share a recipe.

Tonight’s episode starts with a really fun event created by Yolanda: a scavenger hunt. Not just any scavenger hunt, but a Beverly Hills scavenger hunt on Rodeo Drive. Well, hey, it’s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, so why not? I personally thought it was a welcome change and a chance to have some fun and share it with the fans. Despite Yo’s health, she is a really positive, uplifting spirit, and I’m thankful she brings fun to our group.

Yo hired experts to make sure we all had a great time and made thoughtful shirts to make everyone feel special. A brilliant move by Yo was having the teams chosen by the company, so no high school clique nonsense. The theme was team building, being positive, working together, and putting aside petty differences. As Yo said, “It was a bonding activity.”

Firstly, I think Yo’s idea was great and a success for those who participated wholeheartedly. I give a pass to Kim, who was still a trooper but was still experiencing some knee and hernia pain. Protecting your knees is serious if you have joint issues, and she was smart to pace herself as tendon injuries can last for months. The others? Well, you saw what I saw. Sadly, I saw a lot of negativity, complaining, petty, unnecessary jabs, and criticizing their own teammates for physical issues they can’t control. Quotes from one of our ladies: “I hate clues, I hate the game, I hate the whole thing.” She followed this by shooting the bird at Yo. Nice.

On the other hand, I had fun; I love the sun, games, clues, and getting outside. I’d love to participate in other games or lighthearted competitions on RHOBH. Also, how fun was it to see a healthy Camille? She looked great, was sweet, cheerful, and a good sport. Shoutout to Camille for beating cancer with such grace.

The prize for participating in the fun or awful day, depending on which Housewife we’re talking about, was a paid luxury trip to Amsterdam! Some of us had also accepted an invitation to David Foster's charity event in Calgary. Not sure about the rest of you, but a trip to see Yo’s homeland with Yo is and was an amazing gift. Some people say, “Planes and yachts are not important,” but they don’t own planes or yachts, so we kinda know, to them, they are very important. Me? I am thankful for the Fosters' generosity but would be just as happy riding old bicycles down a dirt road with a healthy strong Yo.

Which brings us to David Foster. David is many things--Canadian, composer, songwriter, Grammy winner, and Yo’s love--but he is also a generous philanthropist. So, I’d like to give kudos where they are due. The David Foster Foundation’s Miracle Gala and Concert raised $8.2 million in one night to help Canadian families with children undergoing pediatric organ transplants. On the fun side, we were lucky enough to see Jennifer Hudson, Jackie Evancho, Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds, Brett Kissel, Sinbad, and legendary rocker Steven Tyler. Great charity, great trip, great night.

To me, announcing you’re 'a nice person' isn’t the same as actually being a nice person.

Brandi Glanville

On the dramatic side, someone poked the wrong bear. We saw Kim slowly learning that someone has had one-on-one talks about her private life with everyone on RHOBH--everyone, that is, but Kim herself. To me, announcing you’re “a nice person” isn’t the same as actually being a nice person.

Yep, one new member of our little group is hell-bent on intruding, casting strong labels, making insanely irresponsible assumptions and stating them as facts, all over the place: on RHOBH, the Internet, to the media, and on Bravo’s WWHL. Calmly butting into a stranger's life with such a strong agenda and absolutely zero knowledge of any details of that life after only a few scattered social functions is a whole new level of crossing boundaries. Then, tonight, acting all wide-eyed, innocent, and confused at the results after doing so? To quote the instigator, “Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs." On another note, or maybe the same note (boundaries), it’s probably not a good idea to announce your spouse’s previous alcoholism before he does it himself. But maybe he was OK with that, and I’m wrong. Well, in any case, sincere congrats on three years of sobriety.

Kim Richards was a movie star when most of us were home watching her movies on TV after school and doing our homework. She’s been in this town a long time, knows everyone, worked since she was born, raised four children, survived Hollywood, sobriety, family, divorces, deaths, has more on her plate than all of us, and throughout it all, is caring for her terminally ill ex-husband with patience and grace. Sometimes you poke the wrong bear; that’s all I’m saying. Good luck with that.

So, on to Amsterdam. We’re taking RHOBH fans to the Netherlands. I can promise more drama and insanity but really hope you get to see some of Yolanda’s homeland, meet her wonderful family, and enjoy it as much as I did, when I could.

See you next week and enjoy the Netherlands. Maybe Google where we’re going and learn more about Yo’s hometown of Papendrecht, Netherlands. It’s right outside of Amsterdam and truly beautiful.

My day just got busy, so I’m signing off.

Mom duty calls!

XOXO,

B
