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

Lisa R.: Kim Tends to Forget Key Events

Lisa R. thinks Kim is forgetting something very important. 

Well, hello again! The top of this week’s episode starts off so fun but quickly dive rolls into a frenzy of accusations, hurt feelings, and drama. So, let’s just get right down to it, shall we?

The Fantastic Race was fun. Sort of. The idea of a scavenger hunt with teams was great and intentions were in the right place, but you let some Housewives run loose on a hot day in the streets of Beverly Hills with specific rules to follow, and sh-- is bound to hit the fan. Complaints ran amok, rules were broken, a lot of dairy was consumed, and tour buses were hijacked. But what can I say other than I was more than happy and willing to support Yolanda. Oh, and congratulations to Eileen for holding her team together and pulling off the win.

Next we head off to Calgary to be a part of the David Foster Foundation Gala, which raises money to support families with children in need of an organ transplant. Before we arrive there however, I had quite an intense conversation with Kim Richards about her sobriety on the plane. She had been unusually quiet and uneasy around me, and me being one to crack an egg wide open to get to the heart of the problem asked her flat out if she was upset with me.

She was told that I had been talking to numerous people about her sobriety. Or rather, lack of sobriety. She wanted me to back off and stop talking behind her back, but here’s the thing you guys: I had just had a conversation to her face in Eileen’s kitchen. I looked into her eyes and flat out said, “You can get help. You can talk to people. You can go to a meeting and find a group, so you aren’t alone.” Lisa V. was also right there during this conversation offering her own support, to which Kim literally responded with, “Blah, blah, blah…”

As we have seen before, Kim tends to conveniently forget key events and things that are said in her presence, so maybe I should have seen her response of "Blah, blah, blah" as "I am literally and physically not listening to any of this." Who knows. But what I do know is that particular conversation cannot be twisted into me talking behind her back. When I speak with someone about someone else, I absolutely HAVE TO then speak to the person I have just spoken about. That is what a friend does. Where there’s smoke, there’s fire, and I happen to really like firemen, so I will go straight to that source every time. Haha!

The tense conversation between Kim and I on the plane, though, was just too much. She chose to speak to me as if I were a child and yelled at me each time I apologized to her. I don’t know how many times I apologized, and she decided to snub and fire back an icy, “Just drop it!” or “Leave it alone!” instead of carrying on a normal conversation where both people can speak like mature grown ups.

Of course, the bug in Kim’s ear is Brandi, Queen of Deflection. The reason I sat down for lunch with her was for me to ask why SHE is so aggressive and why SHE says the hurtful things she does and why SHE thinks it’s ok to act like a 3-year-old. I wanted to have a face-to-face, open and honest conversation with her about what makes her tick the way she does, so I could form my own opinions outside of what the other women have told me. As I can now see in hindsight, Brandi steered our lunch conversation to be about Kim, so we didn’t have to talk about why Brandi is the way she is. I would have liked to see Brandi be honest with Kim about her concerns she shared with me that day, but from what I can tell, Brandi seems scared of Kim and basically just tossed the whole messy situation on me. If anything, I would say we’re actually witnessing Brandi talk behind Kim’s back, since she didn’t share any of her parts of the conversation. Very irresponsible and definitely not what I would call a good friend.

We get to Calgary, and I can honestly say that the David Foster Foundation Gala was one of the best and most impressive events I have ever attended. Babyface, Jennifer Hudson, Jackie Evancho...and the list of amazing performances goes on and on! Raising $8.2 million dollars is unbelievable, and knowing that money goes towards children needing organ transplants and taking care of the family’s needs during that time is incredibly heartwarming. The amazing people of Calgary are so generous, and I have to say, I’ve never seen more money raised at a charity event ever! Dancing on the table with my mascara smeared down to my knees was a fun added bonus and then to see Steven Tyler plant those gorgeous lips on Kyle Richards--OMG I die. Thanks to Yolanda for having us all there with her and David and all of the other wonderful attendees.

We make it to Amsterdam, and as you can see, we clearly packed the crazy train in our carry-on luggage. I was kinda hoping it would be left at home, but we just wouldn’t be us without it, now would we? Kim continues to constantly bitch at her sister in the airport and create a scene, which is only the beginning for lots more craziness to come!

Hope you’re ready…

XO,

LR
