Something Adrienne Needed to Know

Kim explains why she told Adrienne about Brandi's comments and sheds light on her struggles with her sister.

Hello everyone!

I love the beginning of this episode! Watching my sister give Alexia her first car was just so exciting. Once again, I remember and relate to this day. The look on Alexia's face, that shock, that excitement, mmmmmm. So exciting for all of them! Maurice had such a huge smile, looking soooo proud. And Alexia's big sister Farrah looking so little in that passenger's seat driving away -- haha. Have fun Alexia. Good luck!

I was really happy that Lisa included me at the tasting at Sur. Getting to know the girls is important to me, so getting dressed up and going to these events feels good. This was the first time I have been with girls in a small setting since I've been home from treatment. It wasn't a party. This was a lunch, just us girls. So yes, I was a little nervous, but excited.

After I arrived, Lisa, Brandi and I were discussing Ken's upcoming surgery. Lisa said she had some concerns about Ken not wanting to remove his underwear. I suggested Brandi for the job -- haha. I'll take care of Lisa, and Brandi can take care of Ken.

When we first sat down, Lisa said she could tell I was doing well, because I looked well. Those are things in early recovery that you need to hear. When Lisa asked me if I felt strong in my sobriety or if there are days that I felt like I could relapse, I tried to explain to her that there were people and situations that were frustrating, hurtful, or overwhelming for me. Those feelings and that pain that I had made me fearful of where those emotions could take me had I not dealt with them properly. That's why I was working with my life coach, my therapist, and PRAYER, which is a very big part of my recovery. And of course the Twelve Steps. These tools have given me the strength to stay sober through some very difficult times. Looking at my sister's face, I couldn't figure out exactly what she was feeling. When someone said "Is that person at the table?," to be quite honest, there were a few of them at the table that have sparked those emotions in me. But I genuinely care about all of them, so it's important for me to work through this for myself, and with them, while maintaining my sobriety the whole time, which is new for me.

Lunch was going great, until Brandi talked about what all went down with her and Adrienne. When someone doesn't like someone or doesn't get along with them, sometimes they don't say very nice things. We've all been guilty of that, but I felt like Brandi talking against Adrienne, and all the girls just sitting there, while nobody was defending her or stopping it, was wrong. I almost felt new to the group, as I really am just getting to know everybody after two years. Brandi started with "Well, I think she lies a lot, doesn't have a book deal, and something about an argument over the phone regarding Lisa." But then, Brandi said something that made my mouth drop.

When I heard it, I felt like a knife went through me for Adrienne. I couldn't believe what I had heard. As close as Adrienne and I have been over the last few years, I felt like if it were true, I would have known about it for sure. And if I didn't know, then she didn't want anybody to know. This is Adrienne's family, her loved ones are involved here. I feel like Brandi and I are just getting off to a good start and having some fun. Brandi said one time "You don't talk about my babies," and that was only about her kids going potty by the pool. She was soooo upset about that. I don't know what she would do if someone said something like this about her family. I'm sure looking back; she must see that this was wrong. I've gotten to know Brandi, and I feel she is a good person, and I'm sure she deep down she knows this is wrong to expose this family in this way. I had to get up and leave the table. I went into the ladies room to think about what I needed to do. I needed to say something to Brandi. I took a deep breath, came out very calm and I was ready to talk to Brandi. But the conversation had shifted when I came out, and it was not the right time.

When I got home, I called Adrienne right away, I thought it was important that she knew about this. This is not something that should get around, and Adrienne needs to make a phone call and stop this. This was something she needed to know.

When I saw Adrienne and Paul at Mauricio's event, I pulled them aside right away, since she hadn't called me back. This may have not been the right timing, but I just didn't feel it could wait. I thought maybe they could talk to Brandi and put a stop to this, as it could potentially be devastating to their family. I felt so bad for Paul and Adrienne. I just don't understand why nobody else spoke up on Adrienne and Paul’s behalf.

There is no nice ending to this situation at this point, but I did what I felt I needed to do as a friend. As far as Brandi and I go, we're good. I don't always agree with the things she says or does, but I'm sure she feels the same about me. I hope you all understand that I came from a caring place, and I didn't mean to make trouble for anyone. I just felt I had an obligation, as this could be harmful to any family, and especially my friends.

See you next week!
XO
Kim

Kyle: Kim and I Will Never Agree on This Matter

Kyle clarifies the Kingsley issue and responds to Brandi's most recent accusation. 

I don't want to write this blog. I didn't even want to watch this reunion, to be honest. There. I said it. But here I go....
Let's just dive right into the text message from Lisa Rinna to Kim.
I was very shocked to hear about that text. There is no excuse for that. I believe Lisa R. knows that. I can understand Kim being upset about that. I am sure she was taken aback, as we all were when we heard it. However, I don't think Lisa Rinna is a dangerous person. She just made a really bad choice.


Now onto Amsterdam and the space cake talk. Brandi went after me in Amsterdam regarding the space cake, because she doesn't like me and wanted to deflect from her own behavior once again. This was her big chance to say something about me, calling me a hypocrite for not partaking in the space cake. I have said it before, and I will say it again: I NEVER said I haven't smoked pot. I HAVE. It's just not my thing. I have a lot more fun having a few margaritas. Kim knows that. I would have appreciated her chiming in there. Also, I have NOT eaten a pot brownie or a space cake ever, and my husband had warned me that it would not suit me well, knowing my personality. You cannot gauge exactly what you're ingesting, and it wouldn't be smart. I didn't want to have a bad experience and "freak out," so to speak. Brandi herself wasn't partaking, because of her own reasons (which had to do with her divorce, as she explained), so wouldn't that make her a hypocrite then? WHY did she care if I did or did not choose to? Because she wanted to jump at the chance to make me look bad, since her behavior and her drinking had been front and center. Her drinking was out there, because she puts it out there, and she has nobody to blame but herself. If I HAD chosen to eat a space cake, she would have jumped on that, too. Anything to divert from her own actions which she was comparing to ours. All of us may have a few drinks, but NONE of us behave like her when we drink.
I only address this because it was on television. Her opinion of me is completely irrelevant to me. I only cared, because I am a mother, and her trying to make me out to be something I am not is reckless, as is everything else she does.
Ok. Enough of that. She beat that non-event to death. I think we can move on now.

Now this is the hard part...Kim and I had not spoken since Nov 1st. We both knew the situation with my daughter, Alexia, and Kim's dog, Kingsley, was bound to come up at the reunion. We don't get to pick and choose what we want to talk about.
Alexia had spent the night at Kim's house on Halloween. The next morning, Kingsley bit her. While scary, at first it didn't seem that serious. However, what the first doctor failed to notice was that the tooth had pierced the bone and also broken it. Five days later, we found out that her bone was infected and she needed surgery to clean out the bone. Kim was upset, because I had posted pictures from the hospital. Like I said at the reunion, I NEVER said her dog bit Alexia. Never mentioned her OR her dog. TMZ ended up finding out that it was Kim's dog, and she blamed me, because I posted the pictures from the hospital. I did not do that to hurt my sister in any way or to "get Instagram followers," like she suggested. With all of my family coming and going at the hospital, people were bound to find out and talk.


We were all with Alexia at the hospital trying to distract her and have fun. As any mother would do. We were all trying to make the best out of a bad situation. We invited family and friends to visit and tried to keep her spirits up. In hindsight, I wish I hadn't posted that picture, but I certainly didn't mean to hurt Kim. She posted a picture when she was in the hospital this year. Yolanda and Camille have done so regularly. And where is her responsibility in all of this? However, I do feel bad about what it has led to. And I've told her that. I also felt terrible because I know she loves Kingsley, but I also love my child. It was a difficult time for all involved. I didn't blame Kim personally regarding the dog and was willing to drop it and move forward, yet she was too angry with me regarding the Instagram post to be able to do that.
I wish that since I was willing to let go of my anger regarding my daughter being bit and what she had to go through that she could have let go of being upset about the Instagram post. I HAVE to believe she knows I did NOT do that to hurt her.
For Kim to throw out that she would say something about Alexia ( like she did to Lisa R. regarding Harry ) nearly took my breath away. But her dog is off limits?
So there you have it.
I don't even know what to say or do anymore. Clearly, we will never agree on this matter. And now we have more issues to work through, like my hurt and anger over Kim threatening to say something about my child. I know she loves Alexia, and it was just her being angry and "in the moment," but it's going to take me some time to get past that. All I know is I am glad I don't have to relive all of this again on TV. Now I need to take a step back .
Hopefully, time will heal my relationship with Kim. Time and having an open and honest relationship.
It's been a very difficult season. That's for sure. Thank you all for watching.
XO,
Kyle

P.S
Some things I would like to clear up:

A) I NEVER asked for Kingsley to be put down. I love all animals and know how much Kim loves Kingsley. That was never part of our argument.

B) Brooke's wedding : Brooke did a small ceremony at my sister Kathy's house (part of it aired this season), so that Monty would be well enough to walk her down the aisle. The wedding we were referring to at the reunion is her actual "big wedding " coming up. And NO, I did not do anything "unspeakable" or "unforgivable" at the wedding at Kathy's house like Brandi has (once again) put out there. It was a beautiful, perfect day that Brandi Glanville is now trying to throw negativity on. She was NOT EVEN THERE. On top of everything else Brandi has done, she now wants to turn that beautiful day that my family celebrated into something to lie and gossip about. Shame on her.
