This week is probably the last episode that is drama free! We start out with Adrienne and I shopping for Portia's birthday. The argument between Lisa and Adrienne had been dragging on for months! Every time it was brought up Adrienne would say that the phone works both ways. I told Adrienne not to hold her breathe for an apology from Lisa, because Adrienne an apology in this argument, Adrienne does. If Adrienne was going to wait for an apology from Lisa, then there was never going to be an end to this argument.
Yolanda's daughter Gigi is so beautiful! A beautiful combination of Yolanda and Mohamed. Clearly she has the modeling gene! I have no doubts she will be a super model!
I was happy to see Taylor in an upbeat mood and trying to move on in her life. I loved that Paul and Mauricio were up for supporting Taylor and her charity. I laughed out loud watching the guys in their heels. I have to say, I was happy that Mauricio looked so awkward! So funny.
Kyle, you say that you want everyone to get along, yet you discuss everyones issues and create the drama that you say you don't want. You fuel the fire so to speak. Perfect example is your toxic friend Faye. It is no business of hers that she fix Brandi and your dinner party. You should prompt her to keep her judgemental mouth shut. No one thinks it's her business. But you know how she is and told her everything knowing she would only see one side and address it at your house. Then you follow Brandi outside and make her think that you don't want her to be upset. You constantly discuss not wanting Brandi to leave your house, but you really don't side with her in anything. I think you like the drama, you can be two faced and you think you know everything and that everyone wants you to fix it. Kyle, stop pretending to be something you are not, and stop getting involved in everyones business. Maybe you don't have enough to worry about. Also, keep Faye on a leash.
The way you process your thoughts has always confused me. You attempt to force a meeting between two members of the group when one of the two has expressed to you to please stay out of it. Yet when you told Adrienne that waiting for an apology from Lisa would be an exercise in futility, you failed to seize the opportunity to be honest with her about precisely why that apology would not be forthcoming. You could have told her in a very diplomatic way exactly why Lisa is owed an apology whereas she is not but you seem to be claiming here that stating that obvious fact might jeopardize your so-called friendship with Adrienne. If you can't be honest with someone who is supposed to be a friend for fear that will alienate them from you then that isn't much of a friendship to begin with.
I remember thinking during this show how much you wanted to "fix" the issue with Lisa and Adrienne saying that they needed to talk and work things out because it affected all of you. It was/is none of your business to fix this and Lisa gently tried to steer you away from "helping" and at one time even saying she would deal with it. These are two grown women who can take care of their problem in their own way without your interfering. I am amazed at the thinking that tells you it is your job to help people with their interpersonal issues - it would be very different if one or both of them came to you and asked for help but they didn't. Lisa did her best to take care of herself despite your wanting to set up a time for her to meet with Adrienne and even hoped it could happen at your chld's birthday party. This was hard to watch. I hope you can learn to take care of yourself and your own issues and allow others a chance to do the same.
i think you have grown up jealous of kim. you were both child actors, but i believe she was far more successful. i knew who she was but i don't think anyone knew the name 'kyle richards'. with your lousy attitude i think you are darn lucky to have a husband like mauricio. what do you bring to the table besides your snarkiness and ridiculously long hair you are continually fussing with? please get over yourself.
It's really annoying all your remarks about the Butler who worked all over . Who cares guess in your fake privileged world that's some big gossip. If that's the most. The man is working and obviously good at his job putting up with over indulgent pompous people like you and your friends.
If I remember correctly, you brought it up with Lisa and Adrienne put you in the middle by bringing it up. There is a right and wrong. Knowing the difference and not saying anything is guilt by association. Shame on you for playing dumb and thinking there would be no drama at your childs birthday with all those women and their problems. Taylor and Adrienne are petty and it would have caused an issue. You're an idiot for playin dumb.
If you don't like being in the middle of disagreements then quit putting yourself there!! Somehow I don't think you can, or will, quit. You're the biggest pot stirrer of the lot.
Your Portia's a doll. So cute and her little voices is addorable. You should get her into dancing or modeling. She's beautiful. She looks like daddy. When she said Darling to Lisa was soooooo cute. All your girls are amazing and beautiful. So HAPPY BIRTHDAY LITTLE PORTIA YOU WERE THE PRETTIEST PRINCESS THERE.
xxxemxxx you can bet getting any of her girls into modeling or acting is on kyle's radar. but kyle herself will always be number one.
Kyle, even when there isn't drama you create it. You are attention seeking to a fault and often times at the expense of your own sister. Your daughter's birthday ending up being about you and not your child. You guilted you sister to be there, even when she truly wanted to be with her own family, you guilted Lisa for having another event that day, please learn to be happy with youself and your own life and quit trying to control everyone else's around you.
mmel602 I think because her life is so perfect that she expects 100% from those around her.
timbun She already admitted it. In the previous episode, she said exactly that. She told Taylor and Kim that she felt put on the spot to invite Brandi, and that she hadn't planned on it because she didn't want any drama.
rnkat timbun and it was Taylor and Kim bringing the drama and Brandi avoiding it. Taylor and Kim need to grow up.
@beanie53@stl @timbun Exactly! Kyle must really be ticked that Lisa is hanging with Brandi...Brandi is honest and just says what everybody is thinking .....Kyle has some hang up with Brandi but not sure why? she should have compassion after what Eddie did to her ...
Kyle..you are such an amazingly beautiful gal.. but I really wish you would see more clearly that Brandi is no threat to anyone. Shes fun. light hearted, and isnt trying to diss on anyone but herself with her humor. And I wish you would pass that along to Taylor because Taylor is so tacky with the way she has handled so many things and it makes you look foolish to be by her side in all of it.
I understand that Taylor has had some serious problems and that shouldnt have even been on TV. Those were beyond serious allegations and/or real problems of which she should have never exposed on national tv. But Brandi has also had some serious problems... to have the the father of your children leave for another woman & exploit it all over the press, is also huge issues. Granted a suicide is much larger but in essence Taylor and brandi have both been through devestating ordeals at the hands of a man. And yet, Taylor is so fixed on keeping her status as a Beverly HIlls housewife & resident, that she will do anything to remain as such!!! To include disingrating your friendships with Lisa and anyone else who may take her status away. Its pathetic & it makes you look bad when you are always on her side against others.
I hope you see the light correctly again and realize that Lisa is a great friend and Brandi is alot of fun!!!! Your much too beautiful to be in the mix with Tacky Taylors ways...just read the comments to her blogs, Im certainly not the only one who sees her for who she is "trying" to be.
@HappyItalian Excellent post....I could never understand what Kyle had against Brandi so early on other than Brandi being gorgeous/single ......then again I couldn't understand what Kyle could see in Taylor .....Kyle is good friends with Faye Resnick which I find interesting for some reason .....
Valerie1969 HappyItalian I think the original issue that the ladies had with Brandi was her friendship with Cedric. I don't blame them for being cautious at first after what Cedric did to Lisa and Ken. And honestly, I think Lisa needs to watch her back with Brandi. She's another Cedric that loves to play the victim.
@SMD66 @HappyItalian Really? I don't get a sneaky vibe from Brandi and she admitted she only briefly met/knew Cedric way back ....what you see is what you get from Brandi ....Cedric's ego got too big for his tight white pants ....that's a shame too because he was some eye candy the first season
Kyle, you are stuck in the middle but you have sadly put yourself there. Back off so you can save yourself!
Kim definitly has an issue with you. You feel jilted by having to watch over/worry about her for so long that it spills over to negativity. I can't blame you for that but it's unrealistic.
Whether you like it or not, it's about Kim's recovery, no one cares nor should they that they "have your back". "Have your back" means supporting another in a crisis when they can't do it for themselves. You need to have Kim's back as she deals with her recovery, not get your nose out of joint because your high expectations are not met.
I do think you are a loving sister, wife, mother and friend but are too much of a "know it all" and your bossiness is hard for most to tolerate.
lwhitaker I think Kyle is not a bully, she's a sister who cares. She's trying to get her to do things like to come to portia's b-day party. Kyle loves her sister and people jump to conclusions. There's a little tension still there but that happens and as they work through it things will get better I know what its like through my similar expierence with a brother.
xxxemxxx lwhitaker she didn't accuse Kyle of being a bully, she said that Kyle was bossy. That's something completely different.
lwhitaker Kyle is very much a bully, Kim came and it wasn't enough. She never misses a chance to get her digs in. I didn't see Kathy & Paris there. Maybe Bravo edited out Kyle giving Kathy the 3rd degree before and after the party, but I doubt it.
Stop trying to force Kim to do things. She is trying to do what is best for her recovery. Your pressure was one of the things that made her turn to drugs to cope. She is right to respectfully remind you that she needs to be firm on her priorities. Your efforts to bully her and make her feel guilty for focusing on her recover and her kids is very selfish.
You are a liar... LOL! You weren't planning to invite all the girls... You only invited Brandi because she happened to be there when you were talking to Lisa. SMH
I agree with you, and her eye rolling,only invited Brandi, because Brandi spoke up when Lisa was on phone
You really were a fan favorite season one. Your actions at the reunion were a huge disappointment to so many of your fans. (As you can read here) We keep waiting for you to take ownership for what you said and for the horrible way you treated Lisa. (especially since she was the one who came to your defense at the season one reunion when Camille called you a bully)
Each time we see you making snide comments about how immature the girls are acting, you let us down again. When you say one thing in your confessional and then take another stand, as you did when shopping with Adrienne, you lose us again.
It looks like you are trying so hard to be in the thick of things just to appear on camera that you forget who you are. You forget why the fans liked you so much in season one. We miss the fun loving, great Mom we met 2 years ago.
You can't change what has already been filmed, but your blogs are you chance to reach out and be honest and stop making excuses,
ksawyer I honestly don't see any difference between her season 1 behavior and the present season, or any other season for that matter. She has always been opinionated, selfish, bossy, and an instigator. She was very successful at getting everyone to hate Camille, did you forget?
No one asked you to be in the middle or interfere. Adrienne was out of line and owes Lisa a heartfelt apology - not a showboat of flowers that was really for everyone elses benefit. If Adrienne wasn't so nasty to Paul - they might have been able to work things out. She's just nasty.
christmastreelady she has talked down to Paul since season 1. Paul probably didn't have much dignity left. I'm not surprised that they split, but it is sad for their children.
Kyle, you are so blessed and lucky to be you, as you point out at every opportunity. I get your point about Portia and the age gab between she and her sisters. BUT that is not Kim's fault. Kim was dealing with adjusting to life after rehab. Kim has children of her own. It seemed you gave not one hoot about that. What is more important to you? That your sister be at this party this ONE year, or that Kim be able to be healthy and resent for HER children? It seems to me that you feel Kim should put you and your above herself and hers ... Even above her health and sanity. She is your sister, Kyle. You have daughters ... Watch the footage. Would want them to treat each other or talk about the other the way you do Kim? You have TWO sisters yet it seems Kathy gets a pass while Kim is expected to drop everything and everyone at your whim. Where is your loyalty,Kyle? You know full well Brandi was very mean spirited toward Kim. Yet you say time and again that you have no problem with Brandi. Shameful. I have sisters. IF anyone were to treat one of them the way Brandi treated (and still treats and speaks about) Kim I certainly would not want them anywhere near my children, much less in my life.
Hi Kyle! I still love you and am a huge fan!! Your little Portia is so adorable! You, Yolanda and I all share the same birthday - Go Capricorns, lol! Anyway, I am so enjoying watching you this season. I hope everything works it's way out with Kim. Taylor still really concerns me though. I don't think you need all the negative energy around your lovely family. (just my 2 cents) Good luck with this season.
You are giving me whiplash. Last season, you were beyond mean girl, this season you trying to bend over backwards to be "Switzerland". . . who the heck are you, REALLY? For once, can you just be yourself? Personally, I think mean girl is your true fit because that kind of ugly runs pretty deep, but I am willing to have a somewhat open mind. . . .
I think Kyles mean girl attitude last year is her real personality but hubby reprimanded her to be nicer this year so that he isn't aleinated from business contacts!
Hulali gulfcoastgirl1 Bingo. She's whatever she needs to be at the time. That acting background sure comes in handy :/
It was so nice of Kim to take the time to show up at your party when she was in the middle of an important weekend with her family. You really should appreciate that instead of griping about her kids not coming, or when she needs to leave early or come later. It's not always all about you, Kyle - you need to get over yourself where she's concerned and not expect so much from her and lay guilt trips on her all the time.
You need to own that your excessive picking on her and unreasonable expectations of her and guilt tripping her has contributed to her feeling the need to turn to alcohol in the past. Alcoholics are fragile people and tend to turn to it to escape their problems - you apparently are a big one in her life. I do hope you go easier on her from now on. And I hope more that she stays strong and avoids you as much as possible for her own well being, or doesn't let you get to her so badly when she does associate with you.
Why is it that almost all of these women have children and only Taylor brought her child?? Adrienne, Camille, and Brandi all appeared to come without theirs to a child's party.
And I don't get why everyone is being so hateful about and to Kyle.
granny-6 I believe at one point Brandi said she cannot have her children on TV per her ex-husband's demands
granny-6 Some are not allowed to have their kids filmed on the show(like Brandi). Also, Bravo often insists these women at least make an apearance at these events for filming. Which is why we often just see them turn up then leave shortly after.
As for Kyle. have you watched seasons 1 & 2? Did you see the reunion? If yes, then you really should know why.
granny-6 Because Kyle is two face,said one thing to ur face but another in her talking head,,, and a liar!!!!
Kyle, if I know one thing about you, it's you are 100% for your family! Bravo to you for that alone. I wish that you would put that passion to your friendships, but I think you try too hard to be neutral among them and come to that to the fans, It's not working for you there, just what I have observed as a reader and fan of bravo. Just a hint, as a fan, make up your mind to whom you are behind and stick to it, or at least tell us in your interview why you are changing your mind and to the HW's face why. Just don't try to stand in the middle of the fence, it makes us think you are 2 faced along with your comments. These are just observations from my point of view and no way am I trying to say this is the majority view point from the rest of the fans of HWoBHs.
I sadly feel that Kyle uses Kim to try to make herself look like she is compassionate, and always coming to Kim's rescue. But in the REAL 'reality', Kyle is purposely making kim look so unstable. Of course Kim had an issue, but i think a large part of it is due to the vicious treatment that she receives from Kyle. I am sure if we check we will find heel marks on Kim's back from Kyle pushing her down and standing on her to hold her down, continually kicking Kim, taking jabs at her, etc. i am curious as to why Kyle feels so threatened by Kim. Maybe Kyle is petrified that Kim may steal the limelight from her. However, in acting the way she does, Kyle is making herself look like the bully...well, I guess because she is. Maybe she doesn't realize this, sometimes bullies don't see the selves for what they are.
Kyle, I am so glad to see that Kim no longer tolerates your behavior. It's very telling of who you are to see how much it bothers you that you can't control and emotionally abuse her anymore.
A kind, NORMAL person would have, said, Sis, I know how much it means to you to spend quality time with all your kids together, so of coarse I understand if you can't make it to the party, just know I'd love to see you and the invitation is always open. Oh, by the way, I'm so proud of you Sis.
She's a better person than you are, She admitts to her mistakes and takes actions to improve. After soo many years of being on the receiving end of her own sister's, YOUR abusive behavior, the damage of that is incalculable.
YOU ACTUALLY BLAME HER FOR YOUR ACTIONS, YOU OWN WHO YOU ARE, AND YOU ARE AN EMOTIONALY ABUSIVE PERSON to your own sister.
Funny how you suddenly became a coward toward the whole Camille thing when you found out it might cost you an almightly dollar. And not only does your other sister AND those nieces DECLINE EVERY ONE of your events, you have no problem with that. Hmmm, must be that almightly dollar again.
Kyle, I am so glad people are seeing your true colors...The way you have treated Kim in the past is horrible and I hope she is able to stand up to you and hold her ground, for her sake and the sake of her children!
@gina2066 I respectfully disagree. I think that Kyle stood beside her sister in her disrespectful behavior. I. No fan of Brandi's but, hiding crutches? Seriously? Kyle supported her sister in ways that make me cringe! Human amity, Come On!
