Faye's Unsolicited Advice

Marisa explains why no one should have been offering advice about Brandi's situation with Adrienne.

I would like to start my first Bravotv.com blog by sending love and prayers to the victims of the horrific tragedy in Connecticut. May those of us who are spending time with family during the holidays be grateful and safe and not take our blessings for granted.

When tragedies occur we often put life into perspective and focus on the things that really matter. Often times we get caught up in trivial things and waste time and energy on issues that don’t deserve our attention. It is bad enough if we are dealing with personal issues, but why insert yourself into issues that have nothing to do with you?

One thing I learned early on in this process is that this is a group of very strong women with equally strong opinions. I wasn’t exactly sure what I was getting myself into, so I treaded lightly while observing what was going on. Again, the drama that was already brewing didn’t involve me, so I wanted to really understand the dilemma before I shot from the mouth. I am the kind of person that will give an honest opinion if asked, and I am happy to offer advice, but it is ultimately up to the person on the receiving end to decide if they wish to take it or leave it. I don’t recall Brandi asking Faye for advice; it seems they don’t even know each other. In fact, I don’t recall Brandi asking anyone for advice on the Adrienne matter. This is an issue between Adrienne and Brandi and should remain between them. 

The extent to which cast members try to control the outcome of things that don’t involve them is, well, controlling. Since we don’t know exactly what was said, we can’t really comment further on the Adrienne and Brandi drama, and as for me, they haven’t asked for my opinion.

Filming The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was an interesting life experience, and I am grateful that we are all on this journey together. 

I am sure I will make mistakes, but have no doubt you will call me out on them and I appreciate that. I am looking forward to reading your perspective and look forward to connecting with you every week!

XX,
Marisa

 

Brandi: I'm Always Here For You, Kim

Brandi focuses on the positive this week as this season's RHOBH comes to an end.

Hey Bravo Fans,

Today was a fabulous day--t was my baby Jake’s birthday. We got his favorite Oreo ice cream cake, and for our family celebration, it was perfection. I can’t believe he’s already eight. I had to hold back my tears when I realized I will never again use that number eight candle. #mommymoment

It has been a really exciting week for me. My Sonoma County chardonnay, Unfiltered Blonde, launched for pre-sales this week, and despite it being tax season, the first day alone was a huge success. Thank you! The website is up now at www.unfilteredblonde.com. The creation of the wine was an incredibly long and careful process, and I couldn’t be happier or more proud of my finished product. I’m sure you're all as excited as me that this week was the FINALE episode of BATSH-- crazy RHOBH reunion. 

I could talk about the she said, she said, she said… but let’s not and pretend we did. It’s been a long season, kind of centering on one night that really isn’t worth the attention it was given. I’m tired of it, it happened several months ago, I’m sure you’re tired of it. You know why? Because it’s old news and in the PAST! 

Eileen, your house is lovely. Sorry I said otherwise for the sake of a laugh. I really like Vincent, he is super cool, your little boy is adorable, you seem like a good stepmom, and I wish you and your family the very best.

Lisa R., I really loved you on my podcast. You made me laugh and rolled with punches. I really enjoyed our interview, and I enjoyed most of the season with you. I think that’s what I’m going to take away and forget about the rest. I think sometimes you make it harder on yourself with your Twitter feed, but I’m choosing not to engage. I really liked a side of you, and you seem to have a beautiful family.

Lisa V., I had a lot of fun with you and Ken. I will always have a special place in my heart for you guys. I wish Ken the best of health and a speedy recovery. 

Kyle, best wishes on you and your family’s endeavors. My sincerest wish is that you and Kim could be as close as you ever were in the near future.

You are a strong chica and I know your family is better for it.

Kim, love having you as a BFF. I’m always here for you, and I hope you are always here for me. You are a strong chica, and I know your family is better for it. You are hilarious, and I love our funny talks and text-offs. Laughter is the best medicine. I heart you.

Yo, my dear, dear Yo, I will see you soon. I love you, you are so strong and so brave! I know you are going to kick Lyme disease’s ass! Anything you need, just emoji me.

I want to thank all my supporters for always being there for me regarding all of my other endeavors, including my books, podcast, Celebrity Apprentice, app, my t-shirts, and finally my WINE and for allowing me to be me.

Ok guys, this is the big week. This is the Make*A*Wish Los Angeles Walk for Wishes Walkathon. Me and the boys pledged to try to raise $15,000--I have $12,625 so far. We need $2,375 by Friday at midnight, every dollar counts. Thank you!

I heart you all!

Xoxo
