Marisa Is So Over Taylor

Maris comments on the Moroccan dinner gone wrong and why she feels like Brandi deserved to speak up for herself.

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a nice week. The kids and I are happy that Dean is back home. He was away shooting a movie with Matt Damon and oblivious to all the drama happening in Beverly Hills. LOL. This episode annoyed me so I'll just get right into it. . .

Tonight we saw Brandi's vulnerable side behind her strength. Brandi has been through a lot and it is great that she can be so open and honest with all of us. I think Brandi and Lisa are very cute together and it is nice to see this side of both of them.

Kyle and I decided to set up a dinner to break up the monotony of all the drama. I also wanted to get to know the ladies a bit more. It seemed like a good idea to make it a Moroccan themed dinner to add a fun element to it. Everyone was invited, including the men because the hope was that this would be a fun and easygoing evening. Little did I know that with this group, that is almost impossible!!!

In walks Brandi looking so damn gorgeous as always, I cant stand it! Brandi announces that Adrienne is suing her! WTF! Kyle and I are shocked! I didn't get into it because again, this issue doesn't involve me, but that didn't stop everyone else from jumping right in.

Let's talk about Taylor; she seems to be a walking contradiction. Honestly, how does Taylor tell Lisa to find her a man in one breath and then in the other she starts playing the victim, talking about how she feels guilty dating, etc.? I think it B.S.

Yolanda then makes the mistake of asking Lisa about what's going on with Brandi and Adrienne and the fire is now fueled. Brandi admitted that she shouldn't have said it, but unfortunately Mauricio starts to ask questions and then all hell breaks loose.I don’t blame Kyle for pinching Mauricio as a sign to stop engaging with Brandi; I would have done the same to my husband if he engaged!!

Then whom do we hear from again? You guessed it, none other than Taylor, who is so desperate to get some attention on herself that she starts sticking up for Brandi and yells that they are both are single women and need to stick together. Taylor goes on and on about how her deceased husband left her with a mountain of debt and problems..OMG.. how often do we have to hear about this!!! Who cares! So over Taylor! The thing that pisses me off is that Taylor is just fake, she is the Queen of inauthenticity.

Finally, after all the yelling has subsided, my husband Dean, as always, has to make a joke so he asks what we want for desert. I think that sums all of this up.

As I get to know these ladies more I am taking this drama less seriously, honestly some of it is so over-the-top you have to laugh at the end. If nothing else, at least we are entertained.

xx,
Marisa

Lisa R.: I Am Horrified By the Way Kim Treats Kyle

Lisa R. talks about what drove her to throw the glass.

Have you ever put a bunch of ingredients in the blender, hit power on only to realize that you forgot to put the lid on, so it sprays everywhere? This is exactly how my brain feels after this episode. There has been so much going on and so much building up that finally everything has just exploded into a million pieces.

What a relief it was to see Eileen and Lisa V. arrive in Amsterdam. It was only a tiny calm before the storm, though, because sh-- hit the fan almost immediately. As I watch the show today, there are so many little details and nuances that I'd forgotten in the months since the trip.

As soon as we sat down for dinner, you can see how aggressive and extremely discontent Kim Richards was sitting among us, waiting for the slightest thing to provoke her anger. She looked at whoever was speaking with disdain, just waiting to challenge them. Yolanda was a gracious hostess, though, and tried to make the best of what appeared to be a rocky beginning to the night. I, for one, found Yolanda's suggestion that we each discuss something in our lives that has moved us deeply to be heartfelt and touching.

As I spoke of my own sister dying at age 21 of a sleeping pill and alcohol overdose when I was six years old, I really allowed myself to become vulnerable among these women. I trusted each of them to let me tell my story and perhaps allow my words to be a bonding experience, so I took the opportunity to once again apologize to Kim for overstepping a boundary of hers. Had I known that sharing a story so deeply rooted inside of me would cause Kim to lash out at Eileen, Kyle, and myself, I would have never opened my mouth and allowed us to be left open to her uncontrollable anger and spiteful words.

The insults she continued to hurl at Eileen were terribly disgusting and hurtful. To sit there and insult her physical appearance, call her a “beast,” and tell her to shut her f---ing mouth was just beyond. I mean, even to this day, all I can do is stare in wide-eyed horror and shake my head in disgust. As for Kyle, I wouldn’t presume to get in the middle of family matters, but I am horrified by the way Kim treats her. I can only hope they find a way to settle their differences because this is just so NOT OK.

I'm just glad that I didn't strangle her on the spot, mainly because I hear the food in jail sucks and orange is not my best color! 

Lisa Rinna

Again it was Yolanda who tried to bring a little dignity and class back into the conversation. Unfortunately, Kim twisted what Yolanda was trying to do into a deflection away from her own behavior and onto my husband and me. Where on earth did that come from? I am fiercely protective of my marriage and my family, and I'll be damned if I let someone as disturbed as she create false rumors about my husband. I think it's plain to see that Kim crossed the line. That was my "DO NOT F--- WITH ME" moment. You have just met my inner gangster! I'm just glad that I didn't strangle her on the spot, mainly because I hear the food in jail sucks and orange is not my best color! The crazy part is Kim has met HH once. One time. And that was the night of the poker party when she had taken one or two or 20 of Monty’s pain pills, so who knows what on earth was going through her mind when she met him or during that car ride from hell.

Look, I own the fact that I allowed myself to be provoked, and it was uncool to break a glass in the restaurant. It was not one of my finest moments, but there's only so much my inner gangster can take before she goes postal. It was all very draining, and by the time we got to our conversation the next morning, I was really over it and not looking for another fight. Besides, we were in Amsterdam for God's sake, and it was beautiful and I wasn't about to let Kim, of all people, ruin my short time there, so I stopped reminding Kim that I had, in fact, come directly to her with my concerns and just took the high road.

Chaos and anger aside, I really loved being in Amsterdam, especially with such a wonderful and generous tour guide as Yolanda. Riding bikes through her quaint village to the windmills was refreshing, cathartic, and good for the soul. The cake eating was pretty funny and then, of course, more drama ensued, which I couldn't get away from fast enough. I was in survival mode already just trying to get through the evening, let alone another five days.

More from Amsterdam next week...
