I don't have much to say about this episode.
There is clearly a division in our group of friends regarding the Brandi vs. Paul and Adrienne scenario. I have mixed emotions. I don't agree with Brandi's decision to air such a sensitive secret about their family. And I don't agree with Paul and Adrienne having an attorney send a letter to Brandi threatening a lawsuit.
This seems like deja vu to me. When Russell threatened Camille with a lawsuit in an email last year, (with no attorney involved) Paul and Adrienne were leading the charge to have us kicked out of the white party and banned from the Hawaii trip. I didn't agree with what Russell did, but the hypocrisy is disturbing. It's all different when the shoe is in the other foot.
"Friends don't sue friends" was the line that resonated most with me from last year and I agree.
Brandi deserves to get sued… Maybe now she will think before she opens her foul mouth! What am I thinking?? No she won’t! LOL
Aren't you guys more co-workers than friends? Isn't it all about your exposure and the show, fame, money, etc.? Isn't that what it is really about? Please don't get caught up that it is a "reality" show, no one has that much drama with their real friends.
What on earth is the matter with you?
You have a lot of nerve making disparaging remarks about Yolanda and David's marriage, when you had the most horrible marriage imaginable.
I was stunned.
I don't have an issue with Taylor bringing up the past. The differences are actually qutie the same. She and Russell were dissed by these people...including Taylor's so called 'friend' Kyle who ditched her.
The 'Beverly Hills' crowd and I quote that because I don't know if Kyle really lives IN BH or just on the skirts of it...seem to prefer the rich and powerful - well I guess that can be true anywhere.
I think Maurico should have defended Taylor last year and not Camile (the woman who insulted his wife and himself). Maurico, or Mr Kyle Richards, chooses his sides based on bank accounts and nothing else.
I do see similiarties. Taylor just sort floats around from 'friend' to 'friend'.
Taylor, your comments on Yolanda and her husband were despicable. That was a very low level to sink too. If someone had or was to say that about your marriage there would be pure hell to pay.
Hi Taylor you're spot on, its completely hypocritical of Adrienne and Paul to litigate. Thankyou for supporting Brandi and telling her to stand strong and not to run away. You're right single girls don't have the emotional support as a married couple does, nor the protection of their partner -you guys need to stick together. Also you were right to say Paul was behaving appallingly to Brandi when he confronted her at Mauricio's event, and Kyle then dismissing your comments as "its not always about you Taylor" was uncalled for, let alone she was making it all about her and her husband. Good luck to you.
Taylor you really need to stop talking! It was weird how you think it's sad that you have to tell your daughter "there is no plane." Isn't it sadder that you have to tell your daughter there is no daddy. You're always gossiping about others and making everyone around you uncomfortable. Try to control your behavior. I know I know.. "you've fought too hard for this zip code to go home now" (whatever that means), but seriously I think you need to work hard on leaving your townie gossipy attitude behind.
Why does what everyone else happens to go through, end up with you starting your comments about them... but then, as pointed out by Camille, have to go to you.... you... YOU. We all know your story, with all the twists and turns and such. But it's time to let the other women have their own story lines and stop trying to make yourself so relavent in the show. Your opening comment... "I worked to hard to get to this zip code, to go home now". That's all it is to you... to be in the 90210 zip code.. whether it is good for your or your daughter or financially the best move either. But then... who cares.. it is all about you!
Brandi. I love and adore you but please get a handle on your temper. I know these women are snakes but PLEASE try to control it. It makes you look bad. And I know you come from a good place in your heart. Maybe therapy would help. Don't worry about the lawsuit. You can't get blood from a stone. And if Adrienne needs money so bad let her get a real job rather than living off her fathers wealth. I'm sure Adrienne and her brothers blew everything the father left to them. Just a matter of time. Good luck to you. I'm a real fan and rooting for you.
@Glimmer88 @Michnyc55 I think it is easy to get them confused. Both whine and can't argue a point without telling someone "don't go there," or " shut the eff up." Neither are worth watching, and keep dredging up excessive drama for attention.
There is no denying that you have endured the most of all the housewives, but i do agree with Yolanda, you should stop the drinking, it brings out the demons and you have a lot. I understood why you brought your situation, it related to the conversation, but in order to gain some peace you have to let it go, for your own sanity and for your daughter.
I have respect for you for the first time! Kudos to you for not joining the Maloof bandwagon!!!
Taylor, Just want to say you are an inspiration to women who have gone through tragic events in their lives and come out stronger! I am really inspired by you, and that you manage to grow daily! Good luck with your future!
Worried about you. I hope that you have some non-Beverly Hills friends so that you can remember how the majority of Americans live. Peace doesn't come from things; it comes from relationships with authenic people and hopefully, for you, God. Answers will not come from indulgence in a bottle, nor indulgence in material things. Kennedy is looking to you as the model of who she is to become. You have a great responsibilty to lead her in the right path in life.
friends don't sue friends but lets not all forget brandi and adrienne are not friends. and lets be real brandi got herself in this mess because she loves attention and she thought what the hell let me talk some shit they won't do any thing. well if she can't afford a law suit in her favorite words she needs to "shut the f... up" better yet just go away far away. gladto see your in a better place now.
I think what Taylor went through was as bad as Brandi and she has every right to stick up for her cos she feels her pain. I love their bond and I know they will make it and find true love very soon and forget about the past.
I have no desire to judge you harshly~there are plenty of others doing that already. However, I want to say that I think its wrong for you to constantly say that what you went through is worse than what any of the others have gone through. You simply don't know that. Everyone has their private sorrows. Some are dramatic, others are more subtle and drawn out but no less painful in the long run.
If you want a second chance at life try authenticity. Try humility. Instead of letting the show follow you around after you've been drinking, let us see your professional life, your humanitarian efforts, your moments mothering or keeping house... justifying bad behavior is not conducive to healing.
I like what you said @RoseWilde. Non judgemental or threatening, A little better than I do I must say! But I can understand Taylor coming out of a tragic situation in which she was in bondage. People just don't seem to understand that in that marriage she was never allowed to take any time or energy to find out who she was. Especially walking on eggshells and fearing the next time Russell might get violent - and control was ALL of the time. She is not sure who she is right now. She is not sure what it means to be strong without being aggressive.She is struggling to find a balance. I do have compassion for her. I feel for her when she comes across as argumentative, random, and heavily drinking. It is going to take a lot of years - with hopefully I really GOOD therapist to help her find direction in her life. Of course she relates everything to herself. That is how you find who you are when you are lost - you compare yourself to other people. I wish the best for her. Hopefully she can finally find peace and come into her own.
Well Taylor, finally we agree on something... I hope you and your Daughter are doing good. :)
Hi Taylor, You have been through so much. I never used to like you, but I have come to respect your desire to create a happy life. I do believe your old life was toxic. Good luck on your journey with your daughter.. lots of us are pulling for you.
Too cute this episode!! Loved you rallying the singles!! You girls have to have each other's backs!!! Especially when bullies are in your presence!! (paul, Mauricio)!!!!!
You really need to sit back and watch yourself in a more sober light! What people are seeing is a woman out of control and you need to regain some composure rather than continue on the way you are acting! Its not good for you or your child! Shameful!
I really appreciate how you have shared your journey with us. You just reinforce my own hard work. Thank you!!
Taylor, do you remember when you had your troubles with your husband, and Lisa and Ken was supposed to be coming to your rescue. Well now they have taken up Brandi. They seem to take advantage of people on the show that have seriouse issues. Then they dump them. Now Brandi is their new pet project. Brandi shoud not have said what she said, and if she knows she can't win a dog fight then don't get into one. Mauricio is getting negative comments because he gave Brandi sound advice. That whole incident happened at his event, so has every right to speak his mind. Everyone else is. All he said to Brandi is if you want this to go away call Adrienne, whether she likes it or not. Brandi started this she should end it. It is that simple, Brandi has everyone involved in this, and is doing all the talking, but she won't fix it. He is right keep, everyone else out of it, pick up the dam phone. I would take his advice before I would all those women. Think about it, what would the average man say is there is drama with a bunch of wome, they would you women handle your business and stop the drama. So what is wrong with what he said. I am sure he would like to go so event without women getting into fights. He is fed up, and I don't blame him, and you being a logical person should also. Tell Brandi to handle her own business.
Nothing he said was "logical" or "sound". He was aggressive, arrogant, and he was reprimanding Brandi like a child! She tried to ask him politely to let it go , and he kept at it.Then his advice is to call Adrienne after the attorney tells her NOT to contact Adrienne? Nothing helpful, sound, or logical about it. He was inserting his personal feelings and telling her to "explain" why she said something that IS the TRUTH btw. Who is he to question her? She mentioned the lawsuit to Kyle and Marissa alone before anyone got there. Then Vyle-Kyle tells him and brings it up when it didn't even start out as a group conversation.
pyin charnorm it should not have been brought up at all at the event if she wanted to talk to those women about it she could have picked up the phone and called them another time. Bad timing on Brandi's part
Taylor, you need to slow down the drinking. You clearly had too much as was obvious from the rambling conversation, slurring and (even more than usual) nasal tone of your voice. Furthermore, you're playing with fire defending Brandi - she's a loose cannon and its just a matter of time before she turns on you like she turned on her friend Adrienne.
Taylor you have a lot of anger and hurt from what has happened in the past. Please release all of the anger and start fresh. Not every issue that comes up connects with something that happened to you in the past. I hope you are able to heal and wish you the best.
I am totally with you Taylor! I am even going to go further and say that Kyle set this whole thing up. why will she ask Brandi about something Brandi was obviousely trying not give tyoo much details about . if Kyle were friend with Adrienne she would asked Adriienne instead. or get Adrienne and Brandi together and have them work it out. but instead she asked Brandi when Adrienne was not around, especially knowing Brandi to be one who doesn`t hold back when you put her in this kind of situation. regardless of what Brandi would have said at that dinner table kyle or Kim would have reported back to adrienne based on their so called " loyalty" to her and it would have been a prioblem. so maybe Kyle did not anticipate Brandi going this far but she was defenetly trying to stir the pot.
I agree with "jms82"....for once I agree with you. Perhaps your levels of insanity are leaving and common sense coming back....nice to see it.
Is suing Brandi going to make a difference? Or does suing Brandi show a sign of weakness? If anyone wants an apology than don't start off with a lawsuit.
you are a friend to Adrienne, Brandi however is not, so it's ok to sue your enemies.
Adrienne brought Brandi to the show because she was friends with Cedric and she wented to caue Lisa problems. When Kim and Kyle were terrible to her at the spa and game night Arienne could care less and told Brandi to apologize to them. Adriene is NO ONES friend!!
Taylor - I am so sorry to hear about your ring and your bags. The person who sued you sounds like a real low life.....but I am glad it is behind you.
Dear Taylor, you have been through a horrendous ordeal, but you will come out of it all intact. No one else knows how it feels to be you, but you are obviously a fighter, and will rise to the top when all is said and done. I thought the psychic blessing of the house was funny, but you have the right idea and I salute you for letting us watch. Stay positive. Sending love.
