Kim Richards

Kim explains why she was so upset with Brandi and why she doesn't think Faye is Kyle's mouthpiece.

on Mar 26, 20130

Hi! I hope you're getting off to a great week.

And what a way to start with the finale and Part 1 of two reunions! Watching last night's episode, at Lisa's home I was so surprised when I walked in and saw they were renewing their vows! It was so beautifully decorated and how gorgeous was that heart over the pool? Her home looked incredible! I felt so bad for all the drama that took place on her special night. Everybody arguing!

In regards to Faye, although I know she is a good person with a big heart, I do not feel it was appropriate to discuss this with Lisa on this particular night. Faye is the kind of person that regardless if she knows you or not she will jump in and come to your rescue. But like I said it was not right for any drama (with Brandi, Adrienne, or ANYONE for that matter) to be brought up on this evening. Many times I hear people say that Faye is Kyle's mouthpiece. And now I'm hearing that Brandi is Lisa's! I don't think either one of these girls need a mouthpiece!!! They are both STRONG women and can defend themselves! As long as I have known them they have never had a problem speaking up on their own behalf! And as for Brandi and Faye, these are two very STRONG girls as well. I don't think their own mothers could STOP them if they wanted too!

Kim, I can tell from the previews that you are trying to white knuckle your way thru sobriety and I'd rather see you as a whining, crying drunk than the hateful bulldozer the previews show you to be.

I do think something people need to remember about addiction is people usually stop maturing at the age they start abusing...Just saying.

For example my own mother started abusing at the age of 16 and didn't become sober until the age of 42yr.  She is now 52yrs young BUT handles most situations like a 16yr old.

Kim your sweet. But, hun, I do not agree with you on the Faye thing. Faye needs to mind her own business and not throw jags, digs, whatever, at Brandi. It was not Brandis fault that Paul and Adrienne broke up, it was the fault of their own hands in their relationship. I resent that Faye "thinks" she knows when on the other hand she doesn't have any evidence but her wonder brain of assuming. And hun, Kyle hasn't been very nice to you, when she brings up crap talk about name calling in your regards. And Kyle has also said on the show about how she feels about you and honesty. Im not going into details as to what was said cuz you are sttill going through the sober phase and something as this degree would disappoint you as it did me when Kyle said it. Kyle seems she can be vindictive, as she plotted the attack of Brandi at a "dinner party" she was hosting in her new dining room and who was there? Faye. Faye didn't know Brandi and attacked her and what reply comes from Kyle? SH*T? Kyle needs to know what friendship is, and true friendship at that. Seems she uses people and you are one of her pawns. Please be careful of whom you trust Kim. People, even sibblings can be so cruel at times when they should be supportive. Peace to you Miss Kim. ((((((KIM))))))))

Kim, I admire your comments here on this online blog.  I have to wonder, however, why you do not seem to have the same respect for the ladies you've mentioned, when you are with them in person.  It seems you are unable to more forward even after professing that you've accepted an apology.  If you truly forgive someone, you do not keep bringing their transgressions to the table, time and time again.

My only wish is that both Kim and Kyle would stop waving their pointer fingers around every time they get annoyed at someone. It reminds me of my old Hungarian great grandma while scolding a child. It brings them down a few notches (and by all means) does not look attractive on beautiful women. Does it make you feel superior and in control? You both look as though you're losing control and it ages you each about 30 years.

I agree with others here that you and your sister started the argument with Brandi on game night. You were both the mean girls and not Brandi!

Faye is Kyle's mouthpiece Kimi. I remember when she brought Faye to Camille's house to get Camille. Who invited her to Lisa's tea and vow renewal pary? Cartainly not Lisa and I find this rude that Kyle would even bring her.

Kim you do not forgive anyone. One minute you like Brandi and the next  you don't. You are so inconsistent Kim.

It seems that everyone must tip toe around you or you think they are out to get you.  Lisa was genuinely concerned about you in Paris and you got very mean and self defensive. I think the fault lies with you Kim. You also went after Yolanda who was very supportive of you,

That being said..............I wish you luck and strength in your sobriety.

Watching you and listening to you talk about your struggles with addiction has opened my eyes.  My brother is in a fierce battle with alcohol as I write this.  I realize from watching you that I have not truly understood what he's going through.  I'm ashamed to say I haven't been there for him like I should have been.   Because of you I will try harder to reach him and  to accept that I may never truly understand what he's going through.  But  I will work  to help him get the help he needs.  I will be praying for you.  Thank you

Though it was a while ago you still feel hurt about what Brandi said. I feel that you and your sister are bullies. You and Kyle always talk about how Brandi hurt you with what she said but how about the mean girl stuff you and Kyle said. You were horrible to Brandi and I've never heard you admit or even apologize to Brandi. You and your sister are the mean girls in my eyes. You and Kyle did nothing but poke and provoke Brandi into lashing out and then got so upset when Brandi didn't sit there and take it. You getting "hurt" is a result of your bullying and I am so tired of hearing about it and not hearing neither of you take responsibility for your actions. You and your sister verbally smacked Brandi and didn't expect her to defend herself.

I believe you, Kim.  No way that you confirmed with Yolanda about the cleanse.  I think it happened just the way you say it did.  Her repeating it, her need to be right is a total insult and not supportive.  She owes you an apology!!!

 

As far as her talking about Lisa to you, I think that happened too; but Yolanda doesn't need to own up to that, I don't think.  Yolanda is just trying to protect herself.  No biggie.  Human nature.  

 

Yolanda got caught twice -- one matters, one doesn't.

 

Take care of yourself.  You are strong and you can do it!!  Oh, and sisters can be a PITA.  It's okay to be angry at Kyle.  Her need to play for the cameras always seems to end up hurting someone -- you (doubting your sobriety) and Taylor (Kennedy's whereabouts).

I like you on the show, and always was a fan of your Disney movies, however you have never acknowledged that you started the whole fight with Brandy on game night.  You and your sister were so mean to Brandy for no reason she finally had it with you two and lashed out.  Not saying what she said was right, but she has certainly apologized and tired to make things right with you.  We have never seen you apologize to her, not once.  If you have, you should let us all know, because until then it is really hard to see your side and you look like the mean girl not Brandy.

Kim, I'm delighted that you're sober, and hope you don't have to struggle too much to maintain that status.  It's really obvious to me that Kyle is the only one of the women who really cares about you.  I'd love to see you cut her a little slack.  She's not perfect, but she loves you a lot more than any of those other fake friends.

Love you and Kyle. Much luck in the future...looks like you are off to a wonderful start and you look gorgeous!!

Stay away from trashy Brandi, and now Lisa, who IS her pathetic little mouthpiece...such an odd friendship. Brandi was wrong wrong wrong as she always is and you would be smart to keep those toxic people far away......let them have each other!!

Good luck.

how is anyone supposed to believe anything you say. you slur your words when you speak and you dont remember anything you say or do.  then you explain yourself by telling your sister that you took pills "accidentally" You are only fooling yourself!

Kim! You need a mouthpiece or a translator because you never make sense! Watching you struggle to follow the conversations at the reunion is just plain sad. You don't recall situations or conversations in context or take resposibility for anything you do or say and come off looking like a mean, nasty, bad little girl!

Kim-watch game night again and tell us how bad brandi hurt you?????? You thew the first, second and third punch and she finally reacted. Sorry, but you still owe her an apology!

SooOpinionated

Kim - it's obvious you're working hard on yourself and that is definitely admirable.  But, it's painful to see you and Kyle throw people under the bus.  It's not going to help your journey to hang onto the negative things in the past.  You and Kyle behaved SO badly and ganged up on Brandi game night.  Yes - she's a loose cannon but you all said horrible things.  Let it go.

We all truly wish you the best.

You seem to be one strange woman who's too old to act so childish. I notice you are blogging regularly. Is this an attempt to keep your job at Bravo?

 

IMO, I think you need a big long sabbatical from reality TV.  This could help you to actively work on YOUR sobriety.

If I hear Kim talk about Brandi "hurt" her one more time, I may get sick.  Kim hurt herself by being a mean drunk

extrarealhousewifeofkc

By the way, Taylor's situation is probably similar - she's hasn't necessarily been in control of her life either, and well - I think going through what she did may call for some meltdowns.  This isn't meant to be rude - but maybe you should hold off on diagnosing others problems?  If you are concerned about someone's drinking?  Just tell them you're concerned.

While I wish you all the best in your continued battle and recovery, I offer this unsolicited advice...Dysfunction will only impede your progress. Your sister Kyle has been very toxic towards you. If you fall in line with Faye, there will be no hope for you.  It is best you distance yourself from the toxic people and focus on truly getting better.  Being  a victim when you have victimized others is not only wrong, but it is it sign you still have a long way to go in your recovery.  Hopefully one day you will truly hold yourself accountable for past behaviors and recognize they came from miserable part of your life, learn from it and move on from it.  

 

What is your sisters excuse? Will she blame her bad behavior on "your" issues and how they impacted her? Again..dysfunction.

morning_glory

You honestly do blame everyone for your past behaviour. You said last year that as a result of what Brandi said about you at Game Night that one of your daughters cried and cried and the other said that it was so hard just to walk down the street. Are you really going to blame Brandi for how sad and ashamed your girls were? Surely it was your behaviour and your addiction that made them sad and ashamed, right? It was so obvious that you were on drugs/drinking that night. It is crazy that no one else said anything to you about it! I totally get that you have an illness but isn't part of getting help taking responsibility for your actions? I can not imagine the overwhelming support you would have received had you taken accountability and said sorry to Brandi for your behaviour. Think about it.

Kim there is no doubt in any persons mind that you and your sister were the ones out of line at game night.  Yes, Brandi should not had made those accusations.  But, when you dish it out, it will sometime come back to smack you in the face.  Faye was out of line and showing her true classless self for arguing with Lisa at the party.  As far as your sister...I'm so impressed with your drive for bonding.   It would be so hard for me to forgive my sister (if it seemed to me) she had taken my inheritance not only from me but, my children.   Or, maybe this is the underlining problem with her.  Still, work it out. Just realize what your dealing with.

Kim, You are straight but you still act like a nut job....You provoked brandi on game night and so didn't your sister. To bring that up at lisa's party  that had nothing to do with you and you were screaming like an idiot. "She hurt me! Grow the hell up!

Kim, I hope that you have discarded the old medication that made you "loopy" in Paris.  You should have gotten rid of it in season two when you had such an adverse raction to it.  Has anyone approached Kyle about going to Al-Anon meetings?    That might help Kyle's healing process and aid in your recovery.  Avoid Faye like the toxic plague that she is!

You keep saying "Brandi hurt you",I get it.But you have to remember who started the whole situation about the substance abuse.That was your sister,KYLE not Brandi.Your sister is the only one who outed your personal situation.She pushed you into a corner in the limo and said nasty things to you until you retaliated with something like you stole my house and she called you an "alcoholic" then  got out of the limo telling her husband a twisted story like she was the victim.Kyle started the fire.What Brandi said at Dana's wasnt nice,but it was obvious she was running her mouth because you were being nasty to her.I really didnt think twice about what she said.But really,if anybody hurt your family or career or anything by what she said,it was your sister.

 @BoDigger Huh? Kim is a known liar when caught not remembering. It was arranged through Sally in production. You know, the people who arrange the filming of scenes to be filmed. Kim no showed or didn't rsvp to the events arranged though production.

 @joysnote She's too self centered right now to see it.  If she makes it to about 5 years of sobriety she will realize this and much more.  In the meantime say a prayer for her.

 @joysnote Exactly what I've thought so many times.  You and Kim were horrible to the new girl, who already was vulnerable just because she was new and 'alone.'  Fess up and get off Brandi's back.  She went too far, but you and Kim were like mean bullies.   Almost anyone  would have eventually lashed back.

 @Fluff

 Exactly!  And you don't see Brandi crying over and over about how you hurt her and how you did this and that.  Brandi already apologized to you and you're still harping over it.  Really, get over it.  You're in your late 40's, set an example for your kids, please. 

LindaE@yahoo.com

 @SooOpinionated Yes Kim made a comment to her sister under her breath that unfortunately Brandi overheard, but Brandi used it to start the verbal war and out and out accused her of doing Meth in the bathroom.  This was beyond the pale and deserves no apology at all.  The comment Kim made was simply I don't like Brandi and don't want to be on her team.  So that means to attack someone you think is abusing drugs??? On camera??? Did she think she looked the victim?  Wrong...had she simply left the event she would have been the victim and looked sympathetic but her classless potty mouth ruined her position.

 @pianogal6 I felt that way for some time now. Kim should get off the show if for one season. I feel she likes the spotlight. Maybe the only income she has except for her sister and husband give her.

TAKE A BREAK - I need one

 @extrarealhousewifeofkc I think Kim is too fresh in being sober to say anything to Taylor. The situations are too different..its comes off that Kim is really judging Taylor and that is what Kim always has a meltdown about.. someone judging her. Its just plain ignorant for Kim to give advice to Taylor.

 @LfromBAMA

 yes indeed it was your sister who initially outed you and while I commend you for your recovery, just remember your sister confirmed everyone's suspicions on a public platform. You were also the one to start the Brandi debacle. Someone would have found out eventually so why you felt the need to take Adrienne and Paul asie and tell them what Brandi said is beyond me. The rest of the season became about this and it got very old fast! Maricio's party was NOT the time. I just do not understand your motives. Yes, we all want our friends to know what is being said about them but surely it could have waited. Having said this, your recovery is no doubt difficult and I wish you much success with it.

Don't forget Brandi couldn't leave, Kim hid her crutches.... Kyle knew Kim hid them...  do you really still think that was classy?!!

 

Oh, don't forget Kim had soooooo much class, especially when she went on her VERBAL attack and called Brandi a "slut pig," etc......

 

OOPs!  You must have forgotten about Kim and Kyle's class act......  hmmm

 @zookeeper93  @nanax2 Kim is stuck on step 4 (or 5 if I choose to give her the benefit of the doubt)

Step4: Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.

Step 5: Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.

 @erica8123  @zookeeper93  @nanax2 Kim may not even be past step one and it is not our place to judge ...everyday is a victory for her and her program is solely her own... she is obviously succeeding and I wish her the best and continued success Just For Today...easy does it...
