Surprised by the Conflict

Marisa wants everyone -- Kyle included -- to focus on the fun, and admits she could have never been in Brandi's shoes with Scheana.

Happy New Year! I hope you enjoyed your holidays! Thank you so much for your kind words and feedback, I really appreciate it. Now that we have all taken a break from the show, it seems we are back where we left off in Beverly Hills. . .

As I watched tonight's episode, I admit that I had to laugh when I saw the cleanser doing a ritual on Taylor's home. That said, I could understand where Taylor is coming from. We all go through difficult times in life and search for answers in different ways. If this is something that will work for Taylor then more power to her. I hope to see more positive things from Taylor because she seems constantly plagued by drama and frankly that one-dimensional characterization is just getting old.

It was fun to do yoga with Kyle. I remember leaving the dinner very surprised at all the conflict that had developed in the past few months, so it was nice to see Kyle under more relaxed circumstances. I was trying to listen to Kyle and process what she was saying but found it hard to focus on all of the accusations and suppositions that didn't involve me. I like to have fun and so does Kyle. I know it is hard for Kyle to be in the middle of all the drama, she is much more in her element when she is having a good time.

I don't know about you but I was very uncomfortable watching Brandi meet with Scheana. I could never do that in a million years! I thought it was very nice of Lisa to help Brandi attain closure on the situation by setting up the meeting. I felt that clearly illustrated that Lisa is a good friend to Brandi. Brandi was able to get answers from the horse's mouth and hopefully move past some of the pain this has caused her by closing that chapter for good.

It was nice to see Yolanda with her daughter. We have the best intentions as parents and when dealing with our children we may struggle with what we want for our children or what we feel is best for them and what they want or what makes them happy. Yolanda is a good mother and I am sure they will resolve this as a family.

Thanks again for your warm welcome, it means a lot to me. Looking forward to continuing this journey and happy you are along for the ride!

xx,
Marisa

Kim: Don't Mistake My Sadness for Weakness

Kim thinks Brandi and Kyle's fight at poker night had very little to do with her.

Today’s episode started exactly where we left off, back at Eileen’s poker night. I remember just wanting to leave so badly that I just kept on walking and didn’t even see the physical altercation between Brandi and Kyle. I was caught between a rock and a hard place. I mean one is my sister and one is my friend. I wanted to make it right, so I tried to speak to Kyle, but there was so much chaos between her and Brandi. Then the other girls joined in and at that point, I was frustrated and honestly wasn’t feeling well. I just wanted everyone to let me go home! This drama may have been about me at first, but it definitely ended up being about those two and whatever residual animosity they had towards one another from the past.


On the following day, my pain got even worse, so I spent the whole day getting tests done at the doctor’s. Next evening, I was admitted to the hospital. In my last blog post, I mentioned that I had been struggling with bronchitis and pneumonia for weeks. Well, the doctor said I had a fractured rib, ruptured disc, and hiatal hernia, which was caused by the increased pressure from coughing. No wonder I was in so much pain before poker night! I was in the hospital for nine days. But I'm happy to announce that I’m currently healthy and well!
Even though my family and I are going through some tough times right now, I feel stronger than ever because I need to and want to be there for Monty, my daughters, and son. All you moms out there know, we don’t get days off! Although it seems like I have a lot going on, that’s exactly what I love about my life! Planning my daughter’s wedding is the most beautiful thing I’ve ever done. I can’t believe my babies are all grown up, and I could not be more proud. Taking care of Monty has been bittersweet--it’s so painful to see my best friend slipping away, but at the same time, our relationship is stronger than ever. We’re treasuring every moment we have together. Don’t mistake my sadness for weakness. If I were not strong in my sobriety today, I could never do the things I’m doing. Thank you to those who have shared their kind words and support!
Speaking of family, my favorite part of the episode was seeing Yolanda with her son. Oh my goodness, I really related to them, because I’m going through the same thing with my son, Chad. Family dynamics change, and it does get lonely for both Chad and me now that our girls have left the nest. But this is also a special bonding time for us--yes, he’s totally going to have to hang out with his mom more, which both of us don't seem to mind at all! 
XO Kim
