Kyle discusses Mauricio's reaction to the Brandi/Adrienne drama and her relationship with Kim.

on Jan 15, 2013

I am so happy and relieved to see my sister Kim strong and sober. She went through a lot over the years and I truly believe she is stronger than ever. It hurt me to hear her say to her life coach, "If you love someone, don't you pull them aside in private and tell them they need help?" My family and I had done that for many years. Always in private. However, I understand her anger about that night in the back of the limo. It's hard watching the show sometimes, especially since Kim and I are in such a great place right now. We are happy and finally able to be sisters again. We have to remind ourselves that things we have each said and done were in the past when we were both still angry, and to not let it affect where we are today. I will do everything in my power to keep it this way.

Later at the dinner party when Kim wanted to get into a serious conversation, my first thought was "Oh, no. Not here" I wanted to keep things "light" (as if that's possible these days). But I was happy to hear what Kim was saying and know we needed to have those conversations, as uncomfortable as they can make me sometimes. It is difficult bringing up the past, and I am grateful we are at point today where we can have these discussions without arguing. We both understand each other more today than we ever have.

I wanted Marisa to know the girls and I really can all have fun and (believe it or not) usually do. Things have been so bad lately because of the Adrienne and Brandi fight. It really is so sad. Unfortunately, the viewers don't know what Brandi said. If they did AND Adrienne hadn't hired a lawyer, people would see this in a very different light. A lot of people comment that others shouldn't get involved. EVERYONE is involved in this mess. Just like everyone has been involved in all the problems that we have gone through these last three years of following our lives.
