The Julie Andrews Epidemic

Lisa wishes the other ladies would fess up to their occasionally foul-mouthed ways and continues to defend Brandi.

And so, as the story unfolds, friendships flounder, loyalties are challenged but move forward we must. . .

We resume the dinner in Ojai, Brandi just left the table with me holding the baby so to speak and now. It will be my turn...Kyle starts immediately questioning my defense of Brandi, well it's a slightly precarious position I must admit, as I hadn't witnessed the conversation between her and Kim. But, I was aware that something precipitated the outburst and, not feeling too enamored with Adrienne's back all night, as she cozied up to Yolanda. I had an inkling that Brandi was defending Kim. Kyle swooped down on to the fact that Brandi had called it wrong, but I was not going to join the sides of the other women and take her to task. I have been in that position and I prefer, as I have told to Kyle regarding the Adrienne situation, rather to deal with it myself. Last week in her blog Kyle says she now understood Brandi's position. . .mmm that is what I have said before. Don't judge too quickly all will become evident in the end.

I knew that Brandi should apologize for using the expletive at the table, not the sentiment, as clearly she was right. But Lord knows that these women should suddenly morph into Julie Andrews when it suits them. I have witnessed many occasions when many expletives have fallen from some of their sweet mouths. Anyway I chastised Brandi in the bathroom and checked that Kim was OK. . .Then coerced her into some sort of apology. Good enough for now. So we resume the dinner conversation, Brandi announces to the table she has a book deal. Well I am truly happy for her, as I am all too aware of the fact that financially things have been tough and she certainly has not had the same comforts and privileges as most of the other women at the table, excluding Taylor.

Taylor takes umbrage to this, again encouraged by Adrienne, as she felt Brandi had judged her previously. Look I support both of them making a living and trying to be independent so that was one I was not going to involve myself in. It is amusing as I stated before, I in no way wanted my opinion to influence Yolanda in any shape or form, but we will see as we progress how she comes to her own conclusions pretty rapidly.

The next morning you see me attempting to explain to Brandi how if she doesn't edit some of her terminologies and take the "f word" out she will continue to give them ammunition. She refers to me as a mother figure. Well maybe I am to some extent, but eleven years doesn't really count. However I won't give up trying.

The rest of the weekend was a serious giggle, with us reminding ourselves of the fun that we can all potentially share. We put aside our differences and relax. Unfortunately this plateau doesn't last and this group of women are soon to find themselves immersed in an almost unresolvable fiasco, where tempers flare, regrets are plentiful and tears are spilled.

Stay with us on this emotionally, challenging journey that continues to surprise, inspire, and often disappoint...

Love always Lisa.

PS: I want to thank some of you for your blogs last week, especially Serabbi and Glen. They were incredibly accurate, in-depth, and insightful, drawing attention to some things that are just too complicated for me to explain.

Kim: My Heart Felt So Big

Kim discusses her daughter's wedding and her special relationship with Monty.

The countdown...Less than 10 days before Christmas! I hope you are almost ready for the holiday!

This is an exciting episode for me as I share with you all a peek into one of the most important days of our lives: The day my Brookie married the man of her dreams. Brooke and Thayer have known each other since birth, it's fate...God...love... I am truly blessed!


Kyle and Maurice's trip to Mallorca looked absolutely amazing! It looked like everybody had a great time. Yolanda always keeps her high. These situations put things into perspective for us. We love our children so much! We give me them everything inside us to make them strong young people, and at the end of the day, we can only hope that they are going to make the right choices.

It was cute watching Eileen go over her dialogue with her niece. It reminded me of my sisters and me. I was very happy to see that Lisa V. got her star on the Palm Springs Walk of Fame! How exciting to see all her fans dressed in pink! She looked so pretty, and Ken couldn't have looked prouder. Congrats to Lisa V., Ken and Giggy!

One of my favorites couples is David and Yolanda. Listening to the two of them, well I just love them together and the team that they make! They support and balance each other so perfectly, and that is also what makes them such great parents!
Oh Brandi and her podcast! Filtered and unfiltered, she's so damn funny! All day long!

I had no idea he would end up giving me one of the most wonderful gifts of my entire life, our daughter Brooke, or that he would be my best friend from that day forward.

Kim Richards

You all officially get to meet Monty! I met Monty when I was 19, on a blind date. Go figure! I had no idea he would end up giving me one of the most wonderful gifts of my entire life, our daughter Brooke, or that he would be my best friend from that day forward.

We were married for a brief time, but our hearts never parted! Giving birth to our daughter, we shared a bond, but our friendship has always been so deep. We have always made being parents to our daughter a priority. Monty has always been kind of a wanderer but has stayed at my home on and off over the last 15 years. In June, Monty was diagnosed with lung cancer, and I decided it was time for Monty to move in for good. He moved in full time with me, and I fixed a room where he is very comfortable and we all feel very good knowing Monty is where he needs to be and he is in good, loving hands! As you can see, Monty and I have a great friendship! We really do enjoy each other's company, and I can't imagine my life without him. So we are not thinking that way! Positive thoughts only!

Brooke and Thayer got engaged Christmas morning 2013. One of the most exciting phone calls and Christmases ever! Their plan was a destination beach wedding in 2015, however, our plans took a shift when we found out about Monty. Of course the most important thing right then was that Brooke could have her father walk her down the aisle, and that Monty would be strong enough! Brooke knew exactly what she wanted. She and I worked non-stop with an amazing team of people! From Mark Zunino designing the most amazing dress, Petals by David flying in the most Gorgeous Flowers, Glen our caterer, and our fantastic coordinator Vanessa, we were able to do just that.


Brooke and Thayer wed on August 2, 2014. It was only our family. A very intimate, private ceremony! The most magical and special evening . I wish I could tell you what I was thinking, the flashbacks to so many memories. Brooke was radiating with joy! More joy than I had ever seen come from that little face! She looked stunning! I, too, was overwhelmed with joy. I was so grateful to see her arm and arm with her dad, walking down the aisle, to join her soon-to-be husband. When she got to Thayer, each second became more and more intense! Then she looked over and at me and mouthed the words, "I love you." I thought I was going to fall out of my chair! My heart felt so big! 


The vows, the kiss, and then they were married!

Thank you for sharing this amazing, magical, and special moment with us!

xo,
Kim
