This week'e episode was very intense. SO much going on and emotions running so high.
Let's start at Yolanda's. The camera really doesn't do her lemon orchard justice. Those lemons go on for DAYS! I have never seen so many lemons in my life. In front of the house, in the back, on the side. . .LOTS of lemons.
Yolanda invited me over and was going to show me how to do the Master Cleanse. I have a lot of friends that have done it, but I have a hard time with the idea of not eating for days. I want to be healthy, and I do eat healthy, but I also allow myself to indulge when I really want to. It didn't taste bad at all -- but I just couldn't get myself to stick with it. I have always battled my weight and have tried EVERY diet imaginable. I'm just at a point in my life where being thin is not a priority. I'm willing to eat right and exercise, but not starve.
I really wish you would stop acting like your trying to keep the peace with everyone. Your husband was out of line and had no reason to talk to Brandi like he did.
To be honest your Husband was out of control and was bullying to Brandi and you allowed him to be way too aggressive toward a a single woman who had no one to help defend her. If that was my husband I would have been embarrassed about the fact that my husband attacked another woman.
This whole situation started when one of the girls asked Brandi what was going on between Brandi and Adrienne, there was no reason to ask about their fight in front of every body. However, I have a feeling you like that. First you ave your husband and Paul attack Brandi then just your husband and then Faye at your dinner party. Again if that was my friend, Best friend or not I would have asked Faye to leave. Faye is nothing but a woman who likes to start trouble with other woman. She had no business saying anything to Brandi its not her business and you just allowed her once again to bully a friend you invited to dinner.
It's obvious that Kyle, Mauricio & Resnick are high on life with their business ventures and getting into Brandi's issues with Adrienne and attacking her with their righteous principles. Little do they realize that EVERYONE has their down cycles and makes mistakes...they should hope that their not treated in the same manner when life hits them hard.
Holy crap!!! What was up with Mauricio?? He just would not shut up! I mean what was that?? Listen, I can think of a lot worse things than "shut the F up" that could have, and probably should have come out of Brandi's mouth. He just kept pushing and pushing her. I noticed even Kyle tried to get him to shut up at one point. He acted like a total jerk and the fight he was fighting is none of his business. Then all the butt kissing after with both Brandi and his stupid bottle of gin. We definitely saw the real side of Mauricio this episode.
If that was my hubby sitting their at that dinner, Brandi said what she said to my husband, her azz would have been on the floor. Friends or no friends. So call friends don't do that to friends. What she did Adrienne, that a low class budget btch, that want everybody else buzz in street, how could Bravo let her do that, that not her buzz. She did it to your sister, she did it to your Mauricio, she talk about you friends, I guess you will be next. I don't feel sorry for her, she knew that her husband was having affairs, want blame everybody else for problem, that sad! Mauricio did not deserve that, nor Adrienne, nor your sister, you better watch out you will be next. Oh by way Lisa/Paul are both azz, if you can dish it you should able to talk it a well! I think Lisa put her up to that, would tell someone that intimately about their life, if a old friends know about it. Now ain't that funny.................
I adore how random people (Mauricio and Faye Who? Resnick) feel they need to fight this battle. They were not even there when Brandi made the comment. So, who else has Kyle repeated this conversation to? How close is it to what was actually said? If you weren't there mind your own business. Mauricio, go play with the boys, and Faye, go decorate some B-lister's house. Please.
At least Ken is a self made man, he is a really good guy for sticking up for Brandy. Mauricio's a bully for going after Brandy, a single mother. Plus he wouldn't be anything without his wife's sister having married a Hilton.
Despite the whole thing, it's too bad Mauricio couldn't take his own advice and stay out of it, regardless. I think Ken standing up for Brandi was a good thing, it's funny how no one seems to remember how Brandi's life was worn up both by her ex AND his lawyers. It's no wonder lawyers make her nervous.
I have never witnessed more social bullying in my life, It's clear the others have more money than Brandi so why is it every time Brandi opens her mouth one of the bullies(aka Kyle, Mauricio,Adrienne)attack her Kyle doesn't even have the balls to say it to her face she is so passive to Brandi's face but talks behind her back isn't that exactly what Mauricio just attacked Brandi for saying things she shouldn't of.... Take a lesson from your selves and act with the class you say you have... Thank god for Lisa and ken they are the only ones who see through this clicks crap...
Kyle and her husband are both narcissistic bullies. Puuuhleaze, like these ladies have never heard or said the "F" word before? Are they 5 years old? Were there children around? No. So get over yourselves..it's a word. I'm with Ken and Lisa --Mauricio should be ashamed of himself, badgering Brandi-- with no one there to defend her-- about something that's none of his damn business in the first place. Something she already said she was sorry for several times. Hardly chivalrous or gentlemanly, Mauricio -- you came off as a punk. Mauricio is just mad that someone in the group is prettier and gets more attention than his wife.
I totally agree, Mauricio should be ashamed of himself.
But why did he do it? Being he owns a real estate company, he took a risk of losing potential clients. I would never hire a real estate agent or anyone for that matter, that treated a woman the way he treated Brandi. Even if he was defending his friends or if he felt Brandi deserved it, he took a huge risk.
I don't believe that Brandi should have said whatever it was that she said...
I don't believe Adrienne should have said what she said about Lisa at the season 2 reunion show...
I don't believe any of these people should be reacting the way they are...if you do not want your crap out then do NOT agree to be filmed for a reality show!
When Kim said that it wasn't the first time that Brandi has stated something that was not true because she had done it to Kim...well I agree with Brandi on that one, she wasn't accurate. If anyone believes that Kim's actions and behavior in season 2 were the result of alcohol and only alcohol...then you are wrong! Even Kyle referred in the first episode of season 3 something about her sister being "clean"; that is not a reference to alcohol....that would be "sober".
Brandi needs to learn what is exceptable social behavior and Kyle, Kim, and Taylor all need to stop being "pot stirers". Has anyone ever noticed how one of these three are always right in the middle of the drama? And usually it is because one of them either started it or just cannot keep their mouths shut! I want to like Kyle. I had a lot of respect for the way she handled the situation at her daughters birthday party when Taylor wanted to talk smack.
Faye needs to get over herself and Mauricio and everyone else needs to realize that someone does not have to call, send flowers or apologize just because that's what they want them to do. How many times has Kyle made rude comments to people on the show? Did he make his wife call and apologize? Yes, she apologized to Camille after all of that but it was only after she realized her husband wasn't going to making money off of Camille and Kelsea...
Taylor has been right about one thing, Adrienne was the one that said, "friends don't sue friends" when it was Russell emailing Camille. Taylor had confided something to Camille (off camera) and in the heat of the moment it was repeated. Adrienne may or may not have confided something in Brandi which was repeated after she was asked on how many different occassions? Honestly, I believe that Brandi said it to get back at Paul and Adrienne but whatever the reason, in all cases personal issues should not been talked about. All of the ladies have been guilty of saying things that they should not have said...that's reality of life.
Drama, drama, drama...and isn't that what gets everyone to watch and isn't that the reason everyone continues to watch.
Agreed!!! Did you notice this season when Kim has the psychic over. You could hardly understand what she was saying because she was slurring so bad. This was juat last week. Maybe no alcohol but definitely something!!
KYLE, I WAS SURPRISED THAT U LET BRANDI TALK TO UR HUSBAND THE WAY SHE DID..COZ LAST TIME SHE TOLD ADRIENNE TO SHUT THE F***UP ALL OF U SAID IT WAS DISRESPECTFUL..BRANDI IS PATHETIC & ITS MORE PATHETIC THAT LISA & KEN SUPPORTED WHAT BRANDI DID, BEING SINGLE DOES NOT GIVE HER RIGHTS TO BE RUDE TO PEOPLE..I DONT EVEN KNOW WHY MAURICIO WAS BEING NICE TO THAT OLD IDIOT KEN..THOSE TWO( LISA & KEN)THEY NEED TO GO SCRATCH THEMSELVES & THAT MELISA SHES KUKU .KYLE, PLIZ DON'T DRESS THE WAY U DID AT THE ART PARTY, U HAVE A GOOD TASTE OF CLOTHES..WHAT WENT WRONG THAT NIGHT????
I guess there are a lot of ignorant viewers who can't even spell out there??
@wezzymuzayamba.nkhoma -I totally agree!! Can someone Please get Adriana De Moura (Miami Housewives) This Brandi needs a good smack down .. She's earned it!!
Kyle, I hope you are sincere about your comments regarding your sister Kim. If so, I am glad you are in a good place with her. But, it's time for you to leave the show. Seriously.
Thanks for posting your blogs, but enough is enough. You are losing so many fans......
Kyle, So proud of Mauricio for trying to put an end to this boring storyline of Brandi's. I am sick of seeing her play "victim" every episode. Brandi was exposed as a liar when asked why she didn't just call Adrienne, she could not keep her lies straight and went crazy when Mauricio called her out! If she is so worried about her finances, she should not spread malicious gossip about others and expect them to sit back and take it because she claims to be "poor". I thought you were graceful and a perfect hostess considering the fact Brandi ruins every party she is invited to. Ken and Lisa were rude and acted like children, especially Ken with his pathetic attempts to make excuses for Brandi. FYI KEN...Single mothers do not have to have a man by their side to apologize when they do something wrong!!! He seems to imply that single mothers are weak and "need" a man to survive!! Kudos to Mauricio for seeing past the BS and getting to the point.
In my opinion, Kyle is the pot stirrer. True, things got out of hand at Mauricios gathering. That was because Kim couldnt keep her trap door shut. Kyle kept throwing get togethers to see what else was going to happen. Kyle was the one that brought the incident up at every gathering and then sat back and watched the fireworks. Brandi tried to remain calm each time but everyone (except Lisa and Camille) kept pushing her buttons and she lost it. The more Brandi tried to defend her actions, the more people jumped on her case. Brandi just needs to change the subject before things get out of hand or not attend the functions because Kyle nor Kim mean her well.
I saw the episode again, and Mauricio didn't say an insult against Brandi. She was the one using wrong words! He just said are you a gossip girl or not, why she said it. She is the one who needs help, profesional one!!
You ALL use the f word quite freely. No sooner do you call Brandi out for it then pretty soon, you say it too, as does Adrienne, as does Mauricio. What are the rules??? It sounds just as bad when you say it, and your kids see that. Does anyone else notice this?
gemini104 For sure! When Brandi dropped the F-bomb at the previous dinner party and Kyle says "She said F%*& you at a dinner party! Who does that?" Well, the answer is obviously, Brandi, Kyle, and Mauricio. And if she thought it would get her more air time Faye Resnick would tattoo it on her forehead.
Kyle, Mauricio said it best, the root of the problem was Brandi and she had to own what she did. She is a grown woman with a discipline problem controlling her tongue. Being a single mother does not give her license to do what she wants whenever she wants especially if it is affecting another family. Ken and Lisa can protect this grown woman all they want but there comes a time when Brandi has to reap what she sows. When Mauricio offered Ken a peace offering, he showed us the type of man he is. Ken and Lisa need to calm down and stop wiping Brandi’s behind, let her wipe her own behind.
What about when Camile said vile things about Kyle and her husband? Where was Maurico then?
@Bigwednesday @TristateFan -- Kyle had Faye Resnick to protect her... I'm glad she called out Brandi too..
Why all the Kyle and Mauricio hate? Brandi said something inappropriate within a group of friends and now these friends have the right to scold her or point out what she's done wrong. If you're going to open your big mouth and say something - then you have to own it and take the heat from everyone else's reaction - or DON'T SAY IT!!! Everytime someone points out that what Brandi said was wrong, she pulls the "poor singe mother" card. If Brandi is so worried about being a poor single mother (which doesn't seem to be true anyway) then she shouldn't put herself in a position where she and her family can be hurt by her OWN WORDS! Brandi acts like she has guts but then wimps out and plays victim as soon as everyone calls her out on her behavior!!! Kyle, Mauricio & Yolanda seem smart to me.... it feels like they're calling out the truth while maybe Lisa and Ken are just protecting Brandi because they hate Adrienne and Paul. I haven't heard anything very smart come out of Brandi's mouth - or Lisa and Ken for that matter.
For someone that keeps saying they are coming from a good place - "Peace maker," you should realize by now that you are not good at it. Stop putting your two cents in under the guise of bring people together.
You have a conversation with Faye, giving her your side, then invite her to dinner, and sit back and watch the action. That is not meant to say you didn't add your own fuel to the fire.
Having watched the show for a few seasons, I realize there is one common denominator in most disputes --- YOU.
I don't know why people are saying Mauricio was attacking Brandi. Initially, he was trying to I've her good advice. Also, he was 100% correct when he questioned Brandi's reason for saying it. Brandi intentions were not good!
@Aqualover you need to re watch the episode, Brandiwas pushed beyond and she lashed out... Mauricio said earlier he can't stand Brandi, and had it in for her from the beginning...not cool..
I may not have an eye for decorating, but from that hot mess Faye created in your home is any indication of what your new store will look like, I hope the merchandise will over shadow her taste in decorating.
Diane69802 mackall66 I'm not a huge fan of Yolanda but she definately has good taste. Faye? Not so much. Just because she's your friend doesn't mean you can't go a different way. Do it gently but do it. Business is business.
The only ONE person that I have seen with true class, down to the bones is KEN. Lisa perhaps as well, Yolanda we shall see. Ken is a true gentleman and a good husband, the kind of man any woman would be lucky to have. Kim is nasty and a mess. Kyle is really aggressive and nasty mean girl. Maurico is a too faced bully, false face who can go low and attack a woman in a group setting. Paul is a bully and a jack ass. Adrienne is a low class rich business woman; hypocryte. You wouldl think those with the upper hand, that is education, business experience, weath could conduct themselves properly in ANY situation, no matter who says what.
At LEAST, Brandi is authentic. We may not like her, she runs her mouth says all types of things and admits she has no class. She doesn't hide and put on a false face. She is quite entertaining. Like her or not she is who she is
Kyle, you and your husband are bully's, nothing more nothing less. I won't waste my time blogging about you and your's because everyone else is doing a good job on that...
If Brandi is going to have the balls to say the things she does, then she can't cry victim or poor single mom who's husband left her! I like Adrienne & don't see why everyone is turning on her! She brought Brandi into the group & defended her when no one else (including Lisa) cared for her! Brandi needs to grow up & learn that you are responsible for your words & actions! Why is everyone jumping on the Brandi train?! I would be embarrassed to be around her in public with her mouth! It's sad how everyone is turning on Adrienne for no real reason! People like to turn on people & judge. I guess it makes them feel important or better about themselves! They turned on Taylor, Teresa & many more. I do not see this turn on Adrienne as valid! Lisa, watch out for Brandi! I would always have 1 eye open!
@EjadeS She is not crying poor single mom..Ken did that. The point is that it is no one's business except Brandi and Adrienne's. If I were at that dinner, though it was none of my business, I would Have told Mauricio and Kim to STFU and mind their own F'ng business. Had I been at Kyle's dinner I would have told Faye to STFU and mind her own F'ng business as well. Kyle initiates all of these encounters and then acts so suprised when Brandi and whomever reacts.
@Aqualover Adrienne should just stop blowing things out of the water...Lisa didn't even threaten to sue Adrienne!
PurPleRein EjadeS That's right Kyle initiated a dinner party and nothing more. Kyle is not responsible for Faiths mouth. Faith spoke directly to Brandi about her viewpoint and if Brandi could not handle it TOUGH! Brandi had no problem spewing out Pauls and Andrienne business to anyone that would listen; therefore, she should be able to take the backlash of Faith defending her friends; the same way Ken and Lisa are defending Brandi. We are accountable for our own actions.
How is Mauricio wrong, he had a business open house, Kyle invited the ladies to celebrate Mauricio's success. When Kim ran to Paul and Adrienne with the gossip, all heck broke loose by the receiver and defender at Mauricio's business open house. Their is wrong to be had by both parties (Paul/Adrienne and Brandi). Paul and Adrienne removed themselves with apology from the event. Brandi stayed with the oh worry me attitude. She thinks it's okay to spew allegations and is shocked when there are reprocusions that follow.
I think Paul and Adrienne were correct in contacting their lawyer and what does Brandi do but "oh worries me, I received a letter from Paul and Adrienne's lawyer" about your dang mouth. Let there be no mistake Brandi is a wolf in sheep clothing.
Kyle and Mauricio are not bullying anyone, Mauricio was annoyed that this occurence happened at his business open house and rightfully so. That man has every right to be upset. Let someone you associate with come into your place of business acting like a fool or at your home continuously, come back and tell me how you handle the situation.
Brandi is cool but wrong is wrong. The tongue is a little member and can boast great things but it can also boast distruction. I call it the way I see it!
Kyle and Mauricio continue to stand strong, you both have something very special.
PurPleRein EjadeS She may not have cried it BUT now that is has been put out there she will use it. Brandi started it by bringing it up in the first place. GO MAURICIO!!!!
@EjadeS She wasn't crying about it.. Ken said it... Brandi might be a little vocal, but she is real..
EjadeS wasn't it Adrienne who accused Lisa of selling stories and came right out and said she didn't believe Lisa..what kind of friend is that. Wasn't if Adrienne who said friends don't sue friends..when Taylors husband did the same. Wasn't it Adrienne who wanted Brandi to be on their side and lie about things she said on her twitter account. Adrienne is the bully..I mean seriously..look at her marriage to Paul (well, it's over now but even before) Like Brandi keeps saying..NO ONE knows what they (Adrienne and Paul) did to her before the comment Brandi said about them (which turned out to be true) Also...none of this would have happened if Kyle hadn't asked Brandi about it at that dinner before the big blow up!
If your are someones friend you should be able to ask questions. Come on now Brandi is a grown ass woman. It's called thinking before you speak. Brandi answered the question she could have said anything like i don't want to talk about it ( you know like she did with Mauricio at the dinner) and prombled avoided.I don't care for Adrienne but for Lisa ( who doesn't like Adriene) to tell Brandi she was wrong for saying it then obviously it really bad. Lisa isthe first to say when she thinks something isn't a big deal. Also Adrienne said what she had to say about lisa to Lisa not to a room filled with her friends with out her.
