I Don't Hold Grudges

Lisa explains why she felt her friendship with Kyle was worth saving, and where she thinks things stand now.

Hello to you all, hope you have had a good week and are staying warm on the east coast!

As we start this episode with Kyle saying she was coming over to my house, relaying the story of Vegas to Mauricio, it appeared to me that her recollection was slightly different to mine. Anyway we decided to talk just us, without the intervention of the others.

First let me be very clear here -- if I held a grudge I wouldn't probably speak to many of these women ever again. But relationships evolve, dynamics change, and sometimes loyalties divide.

In regard to Kyle, I always believed that whatever has transpired between the two of us, our friendship was always worth saving. Many situations that have taken place -- the first tea party, the reunion, witnessing the conversations between her and Taylor -- have all manifested in a substantial change in my feelings towards her. I regard her differently. Now if that is interpreted by her as me holding a grudge, then I do not have the power to change that. I personally feel it is a passive aggressive swipe once more. And it's also hard for me to understand how she recalls the many issues as "petty." I would never minimize the feelings of somebody close to me. . .

Whenever any of these instances were brought up, it was always treated with a slightly dismissive attitude by herself and Mauricio, never truly validating the depth of hurt that ensued after some of these instances. So I voice my opinion, but sincerely wondered if any of it would resonate. I can't deny how we can laugh and we still continue to have moments where caution is thrown to the wind and we resume the carefree relationship that once was. But when you really hold a friend close, you need that reassurance that if all goes awry then they will support you. I rarely need it, as I am a strong but sensitive woman with an emotionally uncomplicated life. But I value that quality and will always repay it.

Yolanda with her daughter Bella and the horses made me smile. I love to witness scenes like that and am happy that Brandi is developing a closer relationship with her, as it was wearisome being the only one who would ever support her. We are all in agreement that she was guilty of revealing something that was inappropriate, but she had apologized. . .That should have sufficed.

It was decided that another tea party is in order. Camille I felt, was regretful of her sudden outburst, which I have to say I could never quite understand. So let us try once more.

Adrienne had been absent from our group, which when we embarked on this journey so many moons ago, was not what we signed up for. We should endeavor to communicate without the need to become litigious, to resolve our differences, to articulate how we feel without financial bullying, which ultimately is redundant when we hope to all have a future together.

Taylor provokes the situation, not that I blame her. She must still harbor feelings of resentment when the identical legal situation presented itself previously. I admired her candor, even though it was cloaked in alcohol -- never an ideal choice at tea but there you have it.

The tension mounts. Brandi is indignant and becomes aware that the only way to substantiate her claim that she had received a legal letter was probably to expose it.

So tempers flare and no resolution this week. Keep watching as this fascinating tale is not quite complete. . .

And on that note I bid you farewell and encourage you stay with us on our complicated voyage until next week.

Love always, Lisa

Kyle: Kim and Monty's Relationship Is Unique

Kyle talks the wedding and the beautiful examples of co-parenting surrounding her.

Sorry I'm late on my blog! Holiday craziness is in full effect.

I really enjoyed the time we spent with Yolanda on the boat. It was nice to be away from Los Angeles and just have some bonding time. I felt for Yolanda and could feel how nervous she was, regarding Bella. She wanted to get home to her and felt helpless in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea. Once home, it was nice to see what a wonderful stepfather David is to Yolanda's kids. I think it's admirable how Yolanda, David and Mohamed co-parent. A wonderful example of how blended families should be.

Eileen is great. It's so sweet how much she loves her niece. I also love my sister's girls like my own and can relate. Also, as a mom of all girls, I enjoy watching the mother and son relationship.

It's fun to see Eileen in her soap opera setting. She has been doing this a long time and is obviously great at what she does--with an Emmy to prove it!

Lisa V. getting her Star in Palm Springs is an honor I know she must be very proud of. Her name forever imprinted on the streets of a town I absolutely love.
And back to being a mom of boys, I can't say I blame Lisa V. for not loving that Max's girlfriend is so much older. Especially when in our minds, as mothers, they are always children. Even if they are "adults." 

We returned early from Europe, because Brooke had decided to move her wedding date up to make sure her father was strong enough to attended due to his health. It was supposed to be six months later. We hadn't chosen dresses for the wedding, yet, so I sent some pictures of dresses to Brooke for approval first. Although a somewhat "impromptu " wedding, it was absolutely beautiful. The bride and mother of the bride were radiant.

Kim and Monty's relationship is unique. They are truly best friends, and I so admire Kim's dedication to him.

Kyle Richards

Our family has known Thayer's family for almost 30 years. I was at the hospital when Thayer and his identical twin brother Taylor were born. Taylor and my daughter Farrah dated for eight years. I love them and their family and am so happy to have them be an official part of our family now.


Kim and Monty's relationship is unique. They are truly best friends, and I so admire Kim's dedication to him. They are both so lucky to have each other. Seeing the pictures of them so young and as new parents brought tears to my eyes. Kim and Monty are another beautiful example of co-parenting after divorce.

And lastly, yes, I did buy Chanel dog bowls. Hopefully they can't read what it says, because I am trying to keep them grounded and down to earth (wink, wink).

XO,
Kyle
