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

Kyle: This Was Brandi's Master Plan

Kyle believes Brandi has purposefully been driving a wedge between her and her sister.

After dropping Alexia off at college, I wanted to distract myself by spending time with friends and laughing. I thought a day at a spa with the girls would be fun. All was good until the wine tasting! The wine tasting was an absolute mistake. The hotel was going to set up a day for us. I didn't know many of the details, except that we would have massages and be eating lunch there. Kim has always maintained that she is fine being around others drinking at social events. However, being put into a situation where we are supposed to be interacting, like a wine tasting where she couldn't even participate, felt awful. I never would have intentionally put Kim in that situation. In fact, I offered to leave but Kim insisted she was fine. We didn't stay long and got out of there.


I had been looking forward to poker night, because I really like Eileen and wanted to get to know her better. Besides, I had never played poker before and thought it would be fun to learn.

Eileen's home is lovely. Brandi's rude comments about Eileen's home were uncalled for. You would think after throwing the wine at Eileen she would be bending over backwards to be nice to her.

Almost from the moment we started playing poker, things were extremely uncomfortable. I could see Kim was "off" but wasn't quite sure how to handle the situation.
One thing that was very clear to me in watching this is that Brandi is not my friend. Never has been. I have tried to give her the benefit of the doubt but always kept her at arms' length. To see her pretending to be friends with me in the car ride to Eileen's and then turning on me made things abundantly clear to me. Brandi can't be a friend to anyone. Including my sister.


Brandi clearly has been driving a wedge between my sister and me, which seems to have been her master plan from the beginning.

Her comments about me always being jealous of Kim's career couldn't be further from the truth. That is not how we were raised. My mom always taught us that any success the three of had ( Kathy, Kim, and Kyle) was a "feather in all our caps."

As a child, you aren't thinking of your "career." In fact, often I would hate that I had to work, because I would be missing something like a friend's birthday party. Brandi pretending she knows us, our history, or anything about our relationship is hurtful and frustrating. She is a new person in our lives whom we have no history with. She makes these comments to be mean and cause Kim to question her relationship with me. Apparently it's working.

What Brandi was calling jealousy was actually concern. Perhaps Brandi always assuming everyone is jealous is her projecting.

I went to the bathroom and Kim followed me in. Brandi seems to not have even wanted Kim to come to the bathroom to talk to me.

I whispered for obvious reasons, but Kim directly talked about what was going on with her that night. Kim told me she had taken a pill because she had been in pain. I was disappointed but felt she was being more open than in the past. At the very least, it was a situation we could deal with, because she was communicating openly about what was happening. We hugged and left the bathroom, and I thought everything was OK between us. My sister has been under a lot of pressure taking care of her ex-husband, Monty. If she had slipped, it would have been understandable, and the fact that we had talked about it made me feel better. Next thing I know Kim says to me "thanks for doing that," says she is leaving, and is clearly upset with me.

Kim being mad at me made no sense, which made me more concerned for the situation and her well-being. I wanted to pull her away from everyone to speak privately but Brandi wasn't allowing us to, as though she somehow needed to "protect" my sister from me, when clearly my sister needed a loved one to make sure she was OK (which is why she followed me into the bathroom). Brandi was putting her arm up and blocking me from being able to talk to my sister. Many things are going through my head at this point: Concern for my sister and for our relationship that we have worked so hard on and the fear that a manageable (yet concerning) situation might spiral out of control, because one person seemed to be using it to her advantage in a dangerous way. 

I was extremely frustrated that this person, who is not family or anyone I consider close, is keeping me from my sister. She put her arm up to block me, and I first said, "Please don't do that." I then pushed her arm down to stop her from blocking me from Kim. As Kim was leaving and Brandi was walking out with her and blocking me, I pulled her arm back to stop her from keeping Kim and me apart.

It is very clear to me that Brandi takes advantage of Kim when she is at her most vulnerable and wants her to believe that she is the only one that cares or understands her.

Kyle Richards

I simply wanted to get to my sister out of concern. The last person I wanted Kim with was a drunk Brandi.

Watching Kim and Brandi talking outside it is very clear to me that Brandi takes advantage of Kim when she is at her most vulnerable and wants her to believe that she is the only one that cares or understands her. Brandi also is using my sister to look like she is taking care of Kim and distracting us from Brandi's own obvious issues.

This was the end of Brandi's and my "friendship." And the beginning of another bumpy road in Kim's and my relationship.

Until next week...
Thanks for watching.
XO,
Kyle
