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!

Lisa R.: Kim Tends to Forget Key Events

Lisa R. thinks Kim is forgetting something very important. 

Well, hello again! The top of this week’s episode starts off so fun but quickly dive rolls into a frenzy of accusations, hurt feelings, and drama. So, let’s just get right down to it, shall we?

The Fantastic Race was fun. Sort of. The idea of a scavenger hunt with teams was great and intentions were in the right place, but you let some Housewives run loose on a hot day in the streets of Beverly Hills with specific rules to follow, and sh-- is bound to hit the fan. Complaints ran amok, rules were broken, a lot of dairy was consumed, and tour buses were hijacked. But what can I say other than I was more than happy and willing to support Yolanda. Oh, and congratulations to Eileen for holding her team together and pulling off the win.

Next we head off to Calgary to be a part of the David Foster Foundation Gala, which raises money to support families with children in need of an organ transplant. Before we arrive there however, I had quite an intense conversation with Kim Richards about her sobriety on the plane. She had been unusually quiet and uneasy around me, and me being one to crack an egg wide open to get to the heart of the problem asked her flat out if she was upset with me.

She was told that I had been talking to numerous people about her sobriety. Or rather, lack of sobriety. She wanted me to back off and stop talking behind her back, but here’s the thing you guys: I had just had a conversation to her face in Eileen’s kitchen. I looked into her eyes and flat out said, “You can get help. You can talk to people. You can go to a meeting and find a group, so you aren’t alone.” Lisa V. was also right there during this conversation offering her own support, to which Kim literally responded with, “Blah, blah, blah…”

As we have seen before, Kim tends to conveniently forget key events and things that are said in her presence, so maybe I should have seen her response of "Blah, blah, blah" as "I am literally and physically not listening to any of this." Who knows. But what I do know is that particular conversation cannot be twisted into me talking behind her back. When I speak with someone about someone else, I absolutely HAVE TO then speak to the person I have just spoken about. That is what a friend does. Where there’s smoke, there’s fire, and I happen to really like firemen, so I will go straight to that source every time. Haha!

The tense conversation between Kim and I on the plane, though, was just too much. She chose to speak to me as if I were a child and yelled at me each time I apologized to her. I don’t know how many times I apologized, and she decided to snub and fire back an icy, “Just drop it!” or “Leave it alone!” instead of carrying on a normal conversation where both people can speak like mature grown ups.

Of course, the bug in Kim’s ear is Brandi, Queen of Deflection. The reason I sat down for lunch with her was for me to ask why SHE is so aggressive and why SHE says the hurtful things she does and why SHE thinks it’s ok to act like a 3-year-old. I wanted to have a face-to-face, open and honest conversation with her about what makes her tick the way she does, so I could form my own opinions outside of what the other women have told me. As I can now see in hindsight, Brandi steered our lunch conversation to be about Kim, so we didn’t have to talk about why Brandi is the way she is. I would have liked to see Brandi be honest with Kim about her concerns she shared with me that day, but from what I can tell, Brandi seems scared of Kim and basically just tossed the whole messy situation on me. If anything, I would say we’re actually witnessing Brandi talk behind Kim’s back, since she didn’t share any of her parts of the conversation. Very irresponsible and definitely not what I would call a good friend.

We get to Calgary, and I can honestly say that the David Foster Foundation Gala was one of the best and most impressive events I have ever attended. Babyface, Jennifer Hudson, Jackie Evancho...and the list of amazing performances goes on and on! Raising $8.2 million dollars is unbelievable, and knowing that money goes towards children needing organ transplants and taking care of the family’s needs during that time is incredibly heartwarming. The amazing people of Calgary are so generous, and I have to say, I’ve never seen more money raised at a charity event ever! Dancing on the table with my mascara smeared down to my knees was a fun added bonus and then to see Steven Tyler plant those gorgeous lips on Kyle Richards--OMG I die. Thanks to Yolanda for having us all there with her and David and all of the other wonderful attendees.

We make it to Amsterdam, and as you can see, we clearly packed the crazy train in our carry-on luggage. I was kinda hoping it would be left at home, but we just wouldn’t be us without it, now would we? Kim continues to constantly bitch at her sister in the airport and create a scene, which is only the beginning for lots more craziness to come!

Hope you’re ready…

XO,

LR
