Shame on Scheana

Yolanda doesn't think there's any excuse for what Scheana did to Brandi.

Happy New Year everyone, I hope 2013 will be a happy, healthy, and successful year for you and your loved ones.

Thank you for all your comments and well wishes. The holiday season was a very different experience for our family this year as I was stuck to my IV pole three times a day battling endless antibiotics for Lymes disease. The good thing was, I had no stress running around buying unneeded gifts for everyone but instead really enjoyed the love and intimacy of sitting around the fire, focusing on my turkey, and watching movies with my family and close friends. David took the kids to serve meals to the homeless at the midnight mission in downtown L.A. and to them it was our best Christmas ever. I know it sounds cliché, but I guess life throws us what we can handle after all.

Anyway, on to the scoop of the day -- more drama in Beverly Hills! Again, this blog is only meant to give my perspective but not to be judgmental in any way.

Kyle’s dinner party seems so uncomfortable for everyone. The minute Faye starts talking I just want to push the fast forward button. Every word that comes out of her mouth is so abrasive and feels like a violation, because as far as I know, she seems to be of no importance in this group besides being Kyle’s best friend. I don’t feel her opinion to be inspiring or motivating in any way. She is saying Lisa and Brandi are working together, but to me it seems obvious that if anyone is “working together” it’s Kyle, Faye, and Adrienne. Packs of wolves work together, girlfriends shouldn’t. It’s OK to have an opinion, but it’s not OK to be rude.Kyle says “my girlfriends are like my sisters.” Hmm, somehow I am not feeling a true sisterhood here. If my best friend went off on anyone at a dinner party I was hosting, I would politely interfere and put an end to it. IMMEDIATELY!


 
I have been in turbulent times in my life where I felt so desperate for answers that I visited psychics and clairvoyants. It might seem strange, but it just gives you a sense of hope and direction at that particular moment, and I think that’s what Taylor is looking for.

I am truly sorry for all Taylor has gone through. Dealing with the litigation stuff is tough, but when you sign your name on the dotted line of a legal document for your husband’s business dealings, I assume you must know what you are committing to. I would much prefer to clear my name than to have a diamond ring or a couple of Hermes bags in my closet.

Kyle and Marissa’s yoga class is a crack up -- yoga is supposed to cleanse the mind, not clutter it! But on a positive note, they both look great!I am excited for you to finally meet the rest of my gang. You all know Gigi and now get to see Bella and Anwar. Just a regular school day in our household. After school sports are big in our family but I like to keep a tight ship and serve dinner at 6:30 every night, so even if I have to go out with my husband after, at least I had that important time with the kids and I don’t feel torn between the two. I believe dinnertime is a very important time with the family; it’s a time to reconnect, communicate, and to find out what the kids’ day was like. We eat, we talk, and sometimes have big debates. David’s nightly question is always, “What did you learn in school today?” He expects a detailed answer, and the kids have learned how to give him one.  When everyone puts their dishes away, it always leaves me with a sense of accomplishment, love, and togetherness.
 
As you can tell I am not a gourmet chef, but there is nothing more gratifying than having my family enjoy the meal I make them.

Bella and I were suppose to go riding after I picked her up from her job at Sun Life, but her horse was lame, so we ended up giving him a bath and some well deserved TLC.

I grew up in the barn with horses and I am so happy that I was able to give that same opportunity to my girls. Both Bella and Gigi are big horse fanatics and spent most of their free time at the barn and horse shows. Sorry to brag, but I’m the proud mother of over three hundred awards between the two of them.

Brandi and Camille’s initial conversation is a familiar subject to me and probably to so many of you as well. Blended families are difficult at the best of times, and the “new love” has extreme power to build bridges or to tear them down, especially when it comes to the children. Soon, I hope my girlfriends will not want to talk about their ex’s anymore, because the opposite of love is not hate but indifference.
Brandi meeting Sheana is a whole subject on its own…


Where do I even begin? I am not very tolerant when it comes to this subject. If it were me, I probably would have brought a picture of a family portrait and served it to her for lunch. Maybe that visual will stay ingrained in her brain and make her think twice the next time around. I don’t buy young and stupid, I realize it takes two, but in this town there’s 100,000 wannabes that will sleep with your husband for a Chanel bag! So it’s really a conscious choice made by two people.

Sorry but Sheana does not seem to have a moral compass and needs to go home to her mom to get re-educated about what’s right and wrong. At the end of the day Brandi is better off because she is a good woman, she will meet the real love of her life soon and find happiness while her ex will be paying the dues of karma for a long time to come!It was really interesting watching Paul and Adrienne together in his office. Their body language certainly looks like the end is near… But only the upcoming episodes will be able to tell you about that so stayed tuned.


Have a great week! Much love,

Yo

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
