Lisa Didn't Need Defending

Kyle explains why she didn't counter Camille's comments about SUR and how she really felt about Kim's nose job.

Being in Vegas with the girls was fun. Watching all the girls do their thing on the pole had me laughing. I love when we are all getting along and having fun like that. I wish we could be like this all the time.

Getting the call from Kim about getting her nose done threw me off, to say the least. She has mentioned it a number of times but never seemed serious. A lot of things were going through my mind at the moment -- none of which I wanted to share with anyone in the car. I had my concerns, but I also know how important my sister's sobriety is to her. I wanted to have a conversation with Kim in private.

Yolanda later said in her interview that she doesn't know why I was making light of Kim getting her nose done. Yolanda doesn't know what I was thinking and it seems she was making light of it herself in the limo. Clearly she has an issue with me.

That night looked like it was going to be another fun night. The girls were all in a good mood and happy. After we sat down, the questions regarding Kim having her nose done started flying at me. I really didn't want to discuss this with the girls. Some of them hardly know my sister at all and I felt this was personal. I didn't want to discuss it in my interviews either.

I am not an expert on this topic but it doesn't take one to realize this could potentially be a problem. Any concerns I had, I wanted to discuss with my sister directly.

After we switched gears in our conversation, it then turned to Adrienne. When Camille said she couldn't help but think of her when we were in Vegas, I echoed her sentiments. What a mistake! Especially with a group of people who are either angry with Adrienne or who don't even know her.

When Brandi made the comment that Adrienne now only owns 2 percent of The Palms, I thought "Here she goes again." Saying something to hurt or embarrass someone. I know they take great pride in The Palms and this was obviously a sore subject.

I actually do like Brandi. I just don't always agree with her actions. Just because something is "true" doesn't mean we should say it. Of course if two people are fighting to the degree Adrienne and Brandi have, most "rules" go out the window.

Then there goes Yolanda again. Saying that "Kyle loves the drama". . .Weren't we ALL discussing this issue? It was a heated conversation between all the women at the table about a very sensitive topic. Only Marisa and Jennifer stayed quiet because they don't really know Adrienne like the rest of us.

Then Lisa tells Brandi to tell us what she had told her on the phone. AGAIN about the Reunion! I have heard many different versions of this now. Sometimes my name is involved, sometimes it's not. I want to say for the record, I was NEVER called by ANYONE about any meeting regarding Lisa. Never. Lisa and I were closer than the others at the time. So, if that meeting DID take place, it makes sense why I wasn't called.

Just when I thought things couldn't get worse, Camille makes the comment to Lisa about owning SUR. THEN the whole table goes quiet. I know NOTHING about Lisa's businesses and I had never heard this before. Lisa immediately said that she owns 51 percent of SUR. I did not think that Lisa needed defending. She explained immediately! Lisa later told me that she was upset I didn't defend her. Why wasn't she upset with Brandi for not defending her? They're very close friends. Maybe Brandi also didn't think Lisa needed defending. It's also obvious Lisa is still angry with me, so she is hyper sensitive to anything I may do or NOT do.

I can't stand that everyone seems so divided lately. It seems we are expected to pick a side. I wish Adrienne were here to speak for herself. It has put everyone who has defended her in her absence, in a very bad position.

Until next week. . .

XO,
Kyle

Kyle: This Was Brandi's Master Plan

Kyle believes Brandi has purposefully been driving a wedge between her and her sister.

After dropping Alexia off at college, I wanted to distract myself by spending time with friends and laughing. I thought a day at a spa with the girls would be fun. All was good until the wine tasting! The wine tasting was an absolute mistake. The hotel was going to set up a day for us. I didn't know many of the details, except that we would have massages and be eating lunch there. Kim has always maintained that she is fine being around others drinking at social events. However, being put into a situation where we are supposed to be interacting, like a wine tasting where she couldn't even participate, felt awful. I never would have intentionally put Kim in that situation. In fact, I offered to leave but Kim insisted she was fine. We didn't stay long and got out of there.


I had been looking forward to poker night, because I really like Eileen and wanted to get to know her better. Besides, I had never played poker before and thought it would be fun to learn.

Eileen's home is lovely. Brandi's rude comments about Eileen's home were uncalled for. You would think after throwing the wine at Eileen she would be bending over backwards to be nice to her.

Almost from the moment we started playing poker, things were extremely uncomfortable. I could see Kim was "off" but wasn't quite sure how to handle the situation.
One thing that was very clear to me in watching this is that Brandi is not my friend. Never has been. I have tried to give her the benefit of the doubt but always kept her at arms' length. To see her pretending to be friends with me in the car ride to Eileen's and then turning on me made things abundantly clear to me. Brandi can't be a friend to anyone. Including my sister.


Brandi clearly has been driving a wedge between my sister and me, which seems to have been her master plan from the beginning.

Her comments about me always being jealous of Kim's career couldn't be further from the truth. That is not how we were raised. My mom always taught us that any success the three of had ( Kathy, Kim, and Kyle) was a "feather in all our caps."

As a child, you aren't thinking of your "career." In fact, often I would hate that I had to work, because I would be missing something like a friend's birthday party. Brandi pretending she knows us, our history, or anything about our relationship is hurtful and frustrating. She is a new person in our lives whom we have no history with. She makes these comments to be mean and cause Kim to question her relationship with me. Apparently it's working.

What Brandi was calling jealousy was actually concern. Perhaps Brandi always assuming everyone is jealous is her projecting.

I went to the bathroom and Kim followed me in. Brandi seems to not have even wanted Kim to come to the bathroom to talk to me.

I whispered for obvious reasons, but Kim directly talked about what was going on with her that night. Kim told me she had taken a pill because she had been in pain. I was disappointed but felt she was being more open than in the past. At the very least, it was a situation we could deal with, because she was communicating openly about what was happening. We hugged and left the bathroom, and I thought everything was OK between us. My sister has been under a lot of pressure taking care of her ex-husband, Monty. If she had slipped, it would have been understandable, and the fact that we had talked about it made me feel better. Next thing I know Kim says to me "thanks for doing that," says she is leaving, and is clearly upset with me.

Kim being mad at me made no sense, which made me more concerned for the situation and her well-being. I wanted to pull her away from everyone to speak privately but Brandi wasn't allowing us to, as though she somehow needed to "protect" my sister from me, when clearly my sister needed a loved one to make sure she was OK (which is why she followed me into the bathroom). Brandi was putting her arm up and blocking me from being able to talk to my sister. Many things are going through my head at this point: Concern for my sister and for our relationship that we have worked so hard on and the fear that a manageable (yet concerning) situation might spiral out of control, because one person seemed to be using it to her advantage in a dangerous way. 

I was extremely frustrated that this person, who is not family or anyone I consider close, is keeping me from my sister. She put her arm up to block me, and I first said, "Please don't do that." I then pushed her arm down to stop her from blocking me from Kim. As Kim was leaving and Brandi was walking out with her and blocking me, I pulled her arm back to stop her from keeping Kim and me apart.

It is very clear to me that Brandi takes advantage of Kim when she is at her most vulnerable and wants her to believe that she is the only one that cares or understands her.

Kyle Richards

I simply wanted to get to my sister out of concern. The last person I wanted Kim with was a drunk Brandi.

Watching Kim and Brandi talking outside it is very clear to me that Brandi takes advantage of Kim when she is at her most vulnerable and wants her to believe that she is the only one that cares or understands her. Brandi also is using my sister to look like she is taking care of Kim and distracting us from Brandi's own obvious issues.

This was the end of Brandi's and my "friendship." And the beginning of another bumpy road in Kim's and my relationship.

Until next week...
Thanks for watching.
XO,
Kyle
