Kim and Kyle's Changing Scenarios

Yolanda is done with the Richards sisters' antics, forgives Taylor, and thanks the fans for their insights.

Hello Bravo lovers. Slowly our journey together is coming to an end. I want to thank you, the viewers, for taking the time to read my blog every week. I enjoyed reading your comments and learning how you view me. In the beginning of the season, Lisa often pointed out to me how the viewers would see certain things, which seemed so unnatural to have to think about, but she is smart and I humbly accept that she was actually trying to teach me to be clear about what I say.

Which leads me to my blunders of the season. . I had a couple. . .

I know I've discussed them with you on a weekly basis, but hopefully I explained myself better tonight.

Obviously as the rookie, I did not know what to expect of the Reunion -- but let me tell you, it was a whole lot more stressful then I could have ever imagined. Trying to recall incidences that happened seven to eight months ago was the toughest part for me with my Lyme brain. I am grateful to Brandi and Lisa for helping me get through the day, as they stepped in at times when I was a little lost for words.

I was really surprised that Adrienne did not show at the Reunion. I thought it would have been the perfect platform for her to set some things straight, as I am sure she has her version of how things came about this season.

I honestly was looking forward to hear her story, but unfortunately we will never know as she chose to not show.

I pulled up my bootstraps and flew across the country and left my treatment center in Florida to be at the reunion because I felt it to be my duty as a Housewife. I am glad Andy set the rule straight, you don't show up, you'll get fired. Maybe they can add a blog rule as well. Some of us struggle and make time in our busy lives to turn in a blog every Monday morning but some just write whenever they feel like it.

I always thought my blog was meant for our fans to get to know us more intimately, while our relationship within the group would develop naturally. I thought it was an interesting way to share our views and to see a different perspective through our eyes but I've now learned that Kyle sees it as a new way of communicating and she obviously formed an opinion of me through my blog.

It was uncomfortable to sit on the couch and be confronted by two sisters that all of a sudden pretended to be united after they fought the entire season. It would be stupid for me to say I was surprised because I saw them change scenarios in front of my eyes along the way.

Of course we did discuss Lisa and everyone else in the group while in Paris. That's what girls do, so I am not going to sit here and deny that. But unfortunately they chose to take my words out-of-context and embellished the meaning of them. I have no reason to attack Lisa, as she has been nothing but a consistent and good friend to me and my family.

It was hurtful because, even though I am far from perfect and my black and whiteness isn't always cute, I am a straight shooter and I do take great pride in the integrity with which I choose to live my life.

I liked Kyle when we met and most definitely had a connection with Kim. It's hard for me to be involved in superficial friendships with other women. I like to have a purpose and have meaningful conversations which doesn't seem to be of any interest to them.

I am not going to waste more of my time on the Richards sisters. At this point their behavior speaks for itself. The fact that they have never shown any interest in cultivating a friendship or in my well-being is just another confirmation of their lack of interest in others. Kim and Kyle are about Kim and Kyle and that is where it ends! You actually know them much better than me because you have seen their actions for the past three seasons.

The core of people don't change. . .what you see is what you get.

Taylor definitely rubbed me the wrong way from the start. The whole number she did on my husband did not sit right with me. I did have a soft spot for her and felt compassion because of the awful tragedy I knew she had endured. In the end, I absolutely appreciate her sincere apology and I am ready to move on and work on our friendship going forward.

I am a confident woman, but I did come into this group guarded to protect my heart. That guard can sometimes get mistaken for being cold or arrogant. I do have my insecurities, but I feel good in my skin and my heart is full of love.

I traveled this road with great caution, but I tried my best to connect with everyone. I feel blessed to be given this opportunity to be a positive voice of reason and share part of my life with you the viewers.

Until next week. . .

Much love and a big hug,
Yo

Lisa V.: I Tried to Warn Kyle

Lisa V. tells us what she held back during her lunch with Kyle at Villa Blanca and why she's worried about Kim and Brandi's friendship.

Hello, as I muddle through this blog doused with medicines, fighting the flu, trying to make sense of this nonsensical situation...
So, as we reenter the poker party, I am sooo thankful that I wasn't there. I do not do well with altercations whilst others seem to thrive on it.
There are so many different aspects to this scenario that are upsetting: the volatility, the disloyalty, Kyle's frustration at trying to corner her sister and talk some sense into her but being intercepted by Brandi...Lisa and Eileen just astounded as they desperately try to keep the peace...
I don't understand the need for Brandi to expose the fact that Kim has called her in the middle of the night several times and she is worried about her. What are we intimating? Wouldn't a loyal friend keep quiet on matters as such?


As she drives a greater wedge between the two sisters, Kim in her naïveté seems to relish the fact that both women are so concerned over her, wailing, "The problem is they both love me" is almost pitiful, and I felt sorry to see her confusion as she tried to placate both parties. What worries me, apart from the emotional turmoil, is that the aggression is unacceptable, and as I see Brandi holding Kyle's arms--the sheer anger that is a result of the alcohol once more--it's just all too much. This excuse that keeps being used that Brandi has no filter is wearing very thin...This is not an example of someone with no filter, this an example of a person that needs to realign her priorities and boundaries. It's everything. The crass comments about Eileen's house were uncalled for as she had the grace to even entertain her, invite her into her house, which is warm and cosy with a plethora of family pictures decorating the walls that indicate happy relationships. Maybe that is what she finds creepy. Anyway, I thought it was generous after being almost assaulted by having a glass of wine hurled in her face that the invitation was extended at all.
Brandi makes many rash statements, such as "They hate each other" and "Kyle is never there to support her sister." Let us cast our minds back to last week...Kyle went to the bathroom, Kim followed her, Kyle whispered to her she was worried, covering her mic to protect her sister...She also knows what is going on with her sister, but in order to PROTECT her sister, she denies it on the ride home with Lisa...
How can you equate this new friendship that started with the "slut pig" comment and "I don't do crystal meth in the bathroom, bitch" just a couple of years ago and only recently cemented to that of a sibling who has spent forty-four years at her side? The tumultuous path that these two have experienced, of which I am sure if alcoholism is involved, has not been an easy one. One that has been fraught with tears of disappointment, anger, and sometimes joy as she succeeded in her fight for sobriety.
We will see what transpires in this new friendship as we ride the wave of this complicated season, we will see the levels of loyalty that is given to this "new" friendship. There is so much I have been privy to and, although not so close with many involved, I would not expose anyone if it was to their detriment.
Anyway, moving on to happier times, I loved seeing the return of Rumpy. We waited patiently, all the little furry people lined up waiting to see the transformation from the naughty dog we sent away into a well behaved young retriever. Well we are still dealing with an overexcited young dog, but now he has a partner in crime, he seems more fulfilled. We have had many big dogs over the years but none quite as mischievous as Sir Rumpy Pumpy. Anyway, we kept Avery, and I have to say it is a complete success.

Eileen comes to collect me on the way to Lisa's. She makes it past Hanky Panky--always a good thing! She tries to explain, but I was none the wiser as to the intensity of the scenario that went down. Never heard of nuggs either...love her, though.
Lisa threw a rather lovely jewelry event. No darling, some of us do have big fat f---ing diamonds as you say, but my thirst for costume jewelry is unquenchable as you have seen my collection in my closet! I admired Eileen as she tries to reason with somebody unreasonable! Desperately trying to explain to Brandi what is not quite acceptable...good luck with that. I tried the mothering thing, and I was criticized for that.
When Kyle and I went to Villa Blanca, I am reticent to say what I would love to. If you remember in one of the early episode of this season as I witnessed the bond between Brandi and her, I stated, "I will not get involved, she will discover it soon enough..." But if I could, it would go something like this: "See? Now do you see how I felt? You think I hold a grudge more than Giggy and should forgive her? You are experiencing a minuscule amount of what that woman put me through!"
But somehow it is better left unsaid, as I believe her personal experience will resonate far more than any warning I could issue, but I did voice my concern over the fragility of Kim, not knowing that she could sustain the same disloyalty I have endured. Kim has definitely had a lot to deal with, and we all wish her success in her quest for sobriety...abso-bloody-lutely.
Oh well, now I have to sign off. I hope everybody stays safe on the East Coast, and as always, I thank you for watching...
Love always, Lisa.
