Taylor Doesn't Know Me From Adam

Yolanda is shocked by Taylor's statements about her and her husband, and thinks Kyle should pick a side.

Hello Bravo lovers!

Mondays are here before you know it. I hope you are enjoying Season 3 and are starting to get a feel for what goes on in this group of Beverly Hillbillies.

I don’t want to bore you, as I am definitely starting to bore myself with my health updates, but I don't want to ignore those of you asking. I just started my second round of 45-day IV antibiotics and thankfully am starting to see some sparks of brightness in my days. I am hopeful and very excited to get back my energy but most of all, my brain ,which I have missed more than anything in these past five months.

Anyway onto the subject of the day. . .

We've already discussed the dinner at the Moroccan restaurant in details. I believe we are all entitled to our opinion. I like Mauricio. He is a nice man with good principles and speaks with conviction. I am just not sure he knows Brandi's side of the story as well as Adrienne's.

Kyle, on the other hand, does know every detail of every story that goes on in this group. She never seems to take a strong position on anything or stand behind one particular person but rather tries to be everybody's best friend, which we know is impossible; we only have time for a handful of true friendships in our lives.

It appears that Kyle and Mauricio are very close to the Maloofs and I respect that, but Adrienne's words just don't hold a lot of value to me. She says she would appreciate an apology from Brandi but in the meantime does not answer her calls and has her lawyers fighting her fight.

Her choice of using her power and money to intimidate another woman just does not sit right with me. Brandi's statement was extremely private and very personal -- but in no way a character assassination. Anyway, it's time to move on, this subject is old. . .remember today's news wraps tomorrow's fish.

When you take a step back, it's quite interesting to see Taylor's conversation with Camille. First of all, she does not know me from Adam. And second of all, she has never made an attempt to get to know me but rather gave me a cold shoulder and a bunch of attitude from the day I first came into this group.

So for her to sit there and make a statement about my life and me is just ludicrous. If she had any interest at all, she could have read my bio online and know that my life has not been all wine and roses. The way she refers to her husband's passing in such casual conversation is very sad and disheartening to me. But like I have been saying from the beginning, alcohol just doesn't bring out the best in any of us, especially when you have such deep-rooted hurt and open wounds to deal with.

When she starts talking about my husband, she really strikes a chord with me; it's just amazing how poisonous trash talk is. She has only met David once. If she wants to have a little more insight into his marriage with her friend Linda, she might want to actually talk to David in person and get his perspective on their 20 years together. But then again, why would my husband want to discuss his private life with a biased stranger? Regardless, I empathize with Taylor and hope she will find her path to happiness soon.

At Mohamed’s house, you are finally seeing me in action, doing what I love to do. . .work! I am happiest when working hard and running three projects at the same time. Mohamed and I share crews and some of the guys have worked with me for 15 years and are part of my work family. As you can tell, I could not do what I do without them.

I feel very blessed and privileged to have been given the opportunity to come to America and make my dreams come true so I always try to motivate the people around me to learn English because of the opportunities and freedom it will give them. I believe it's our obligation to learn the language of the country that has allowed us to live and thrive in.

It looks like Kim is doing great, searching for answers to balance her life. She is looking more beautiful every week so I support whatever it takes for her to continue her recovery.

Visiting Mohamed was just another day in our unconventional family. As you know, having a good relationship with your ex takes a lot of persistent strength and effort but I believe it to be essential in order to raise confident and stable children. No matter what went down in the past, you can't allow your bruised ego to destroy the commitment you made to bringing your children into this world together. At the end of the day, their well-being is all that really matters and the love of both parents is equally important.

I moved to Santa Barbara and became a single mom when my youngest was 18 months old and the girls were 4 and 5. It was a tough nut to crack, being a single mom, integrating into a new community far away from my family in Holland; definitely not what I had bargained for, but nevertheless the hand that life dealt me.

I am the proud mother and the engine of a big unconventional family: My Gigi, Bella, and Anwar, David's five, my two stepdaughters from Mohamed and David's two stepsons with Linda. I work hard to keep everyone respected and acknowledged, including the exes and their new partners. For a child, there is nothing more valuable than to see their parents get along.

It gives me great joy and pride to see Mohamed and I interact with the children and like I said, we have always been great working partners. I have tremendous respect for his vision and the magical projects he creates.

I wish Kyle and Faye luck and prosperity in their new venture. After what went down at Kyle's dinner, I don't see the humor in their comments and sense a bit of disrespect. . .Are they really referring to the girls in our group as fake and not real? Mmmm interesting!

I never met Dean but I have known his parents, the Zanucks, for a long time. They are a wonderful family. I think Marisa is a warm and bubbly addition to the group.

It seems like Marisa has different plans for Dean's future but it looks like Dean takes after his dad, who always choose to stay out of the limelight.

I love our night at the art gallery, we are having fun and it's the first time I feel like we are starting to jive as a group. I was so excited I found a beautiful piece of art, made a great deal and most importantly, a gift for my love. David is hard to buy for. I am a practical girl and don't like useless gifts so this is a beautiful piece that he will cherish forever.

I am excited to go to Vegas to support Brandi and I will do whatever it takes to help her establish her new business ventures.

Again, my opinions may sound but are not meant to be judgmental. It's just my perspective of what goes on.

Until next week, much love,
Yo

Brandi: Someone Poked the Wrong Bear

Brandi thinks Lisa Rinna shouldn't be surprised by Kim's reaction. 

Hello Bravo Peeps,

Tonight I’m finally home in L.A. with my family!
I can’t tell you how nice it is to just slow down for a while. My mind is on recipes and new kids' projects this week. When I catch up, I will for sure share a recipe.

Tonight’s episode starts with a really fun event created by Yolanda: a scavenger hunt. Not just any scavenger hunt, but a Beverly Hills scavenger hunt on Rodeo Drive. Well, hey, it’s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, so why not? I personally thought it was a welcome change and a chance to have some fun and share it with the fans. Despite Yo’s health, she is a really positive, uplifting spirit, and I’m thankful she brings fun to our group.

Yo hired experts to make sure we all had a great time and made thoughtful shirts to make everyone feel special. A brilliant move by Yo was having the teams chosen by the company, so no high school clique nonsense. The theme was team building, being positive, working together, and putting aside petty differences. As Yo said, “It was a bonding activity.”

Firstly, I think Yo’s idea was great and a success for those who participated wholeheartedly. I give a pass to Kim, who was still a trooper but was still experiencing some knee and hernia pain. Protecting your knees is serious if you have joint issues, and she was smart to pace herself as tendon injuries can last for months. The others? Well, you saw what I saw. Sadly, I saw a lot of negativity, complaining, petty, unnecessary jabs, and criticizing their own teammates for physical issues they can’t control. Quotes from one of our ladies: “I hate clues, I hate the game, I hate the whole thing.” She followed this by shooting the bird at Yo. Nice.

On the other hand, I had fun; I love the sun, games, clues, and getting outside. I’d love to participate in other games or lighthearted competitions on RHOBH. Also, how fun was it to see a healthy Camille? She looked great, was sweet, cheerful, and a good sport. Shoutout to Camille for beating cancer with such grace.

The prize for participating in the fun or awful day, depending on which Housewife we’re talking about, was a paid luxury trip to Amsterdam! Some of us had also accepted an invitation to David Foster's charity event in Calgary. Not sure about the rest of you, but a trip to see Yo’s homeland with Yo is and was an amazing gift. Some people say, “Planes and yachts are not important,” but they don’t own planes or yachts, so we kinda know, to them, they are very important. Me? I am thankful for the Fosters' generosity but would be just as happy riding old bicycles down a dirt road with a healthy strong Yo.

Which brings us to David Foster. David is many things--Canadian, composer, songwriter, Grammy winner, and Yo’s love--but he is also a generous philanthropist. So, I’d like to give kudos where they are due. The David Foster Foundation’s Miracle Gala and Concert raised $8.2 million in one night to help Canadian families with children undergoing pediatric organ transplants. On the fun side, we were lucky enough to see Jennifer Hudson, Jackie Evancho, Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds, Brett Kissel, Sinbad, and legendary rocker Steven Tyler. Great charity, great trip, great night.

To me, announcing you’re 'a nice person' isn’t the same as actually being a nice person.

Brandi Glanville

On the dramatic side, someone poked the wrong bear. We saw Kim slowly learning that someone has had one-on-one talks about her private life with everyone on RHOBH--everyone, that is, but Kim herself. To me, announcing you’re “a nice person” isn’t the same as actually being a nice person.

Yep, one new member of our little group is hell-bent on intruding, casting strong labels, making insanely irresponsible assumptions and stating them as facts, all over the place: on RHOBH, the Internet, to the media, and on Bravo’s WWHL. Calmly butting into a stranger's life with such a strong agenda and absolutely zero knowledge of any details of that life after only a few scattered social functions is a whole new level of crossing boundaries. Then, tonight, acting all wide-eyed, innocent, and confused at the results after doing so? To quote the instigator, “Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs." On another note, or maybe the same note (boundaries), it’s probably not a good idea to announce your spouse’s previous alcoholism before he does it himself. But maybe he was OK with that, and I’m wrong. Well, in any case, sincere congrats on three years of sobriety.

Kim Richards was a movie star when most of us were home watching her movies on TV after school and doing our homework. She’s been in this town a long time, knows everyone, worked since she was born, raised four children, survived Hollywood, sobriety, family, divorces, deaths, has more on her plate than all of us, and throughout it all, is caring for her terminally ill ex-husband with patience and grace. Sometimes you poke the wrong bear; that’s all I’m saying. Good luck with that.

So, on to Amsterdam. We’re taking RHOBH fans to the Netherlands. I can promise more drama and insanity but really hope you get to see some of Yolanda’s homeland, meet her wonderful family, and enjoy it as much as I did, when I could.

See you next week and enjoy the Netherlands. Maybe Google where we’re going and learn more about Yo’s hometown of Papendrecht, Netherlands. It’s right outside of Amsterdam and truly beautiful.

Please check out the incredible work of the David Foster Foundation: http://davidfosterfoundation.com

My day just got busy, so I’m signing off.

Mom duty calls!

XOXO,

B
