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: Kim and I Will Never Agree on This Matter

Kyle clarifies the Kingsley issue and responds to Brandi's most recent accusation. 

I don't want to write this blog. I didn't even want to watch this reunion, to be honest. There. I said it. But here I go....
Let's just dive right into the text message from Lisa Rinna to Kim.
I was very shocked to hear about that text. There is no excuse for that. I believe Lisa R. knows that. I can understand Kim being upset about that. I am sure she was taken aback, as we all were when we heard it. However, I don't think Lisa Rinna is a dangerous person. She just made a really bad choice.


Now onto Amsterdam and the space cake talk. Brandi went after me in Amsterdam regarding the space cake, because she doesn't like me and wanted to deflect from her own behavior once again. This was her big chance to say something about me, calling me a hypocrite for not partaking in the space cake. I have said it before, and I will say it again: I NEVER said I haven't smoked pot. I HAVE. It's just not my thing. I have a lot more fun having a few margaritas. Kim knows that. I would have appreciated her chiming in there. Also, I have NOT eaten a pot brownie or a space cake ever, and my husband had warned me that it would not suit me well, knowing my personality. You cannot gauge exactly what you're ingesting, and it wouldn't be smart. I didn't want to have a bad experience and "freak out," so to speak. Brandi herself wasn't partaking, because of her own reasons (which had to do with her divorce, as she explained), so wouldn't that make her a hypocrite then? WHY did she care if I did or did not choose to? Because she wanted to jump at the chance to make me look bad, since her behavior and her drinking had been front and center. Her drinking was out there, because she puts it out there, and she has nobody to blame but herself. If I HAD chosen to eat a space cake, she would have jumped on that, too. Anything to divert from her own actions which she was comparing to ours. All of us may have a few drinks, but NONE of us behave like her when we drink.
I only address this because it was on television. Her opinion of me is completely irrelevant to me. I only cared, because I am a mother, and her trying to make me out to be something I am not is reckless, as is everything else she does.
Ok. Enough of that. She beat that non-event to death. I think we can move on now.

Now this is the hard part...Kim and I had not spoken since Nov 1st. We both knew the situation with my daughter, Alexia, and Kim's dog, Kingsley, was bound to come up at the reunion. We don't get to pick and choose what we want to talk about.
Alexia had spent the night at Kim's house on Halloween. The next morning, Kingsley bit her. While scary, at first it didn't seem that serious. However, what the first doctor failed to notice was that the tooth had pierced the bone and also broken it. Five days later, we found out that her bone was infected and she needed surgery to clean out the bone. Kim was upset, because I had posted pictures from the hospital. Like I said at the reunion, I NEVER said her dog bit Alexia. Never mentioned her OR her dog. TMZ ended up finding out that it was Kim's dog, and she blamed me, because I posted the pictures from the hospital. I did not do that to hurt my sister in any way or to "get Instagram followers," like she suggested. With all of my family coming and going at the hospital, people were bound to find out and talk.


We were all with Alexia at the hospital trying to distract her and have fun. As any mother would do. We were all trying to make the best out of a bad situation. We invited family and friends to visit and tried to keep her spirits up. In hindsight, I wish I hadn't posted that picture, but I certainly didn't mean to hurt Kim. She posted a picture when she was in the hospital this year. Yolanda and Camille have done so regularly. And where is her responsibility in all of this? However, I do feel bad about what it has led to. And I've told her that. I also felt terrible because I know she loves Kingsley, but I also love my child. It was a difficult time for all involved. I didn't blame Kim personally regarding the dog and was willing to drop it and move forward, yet she was too angry with me regarding the Instagram post to be able to do that.
I wish that since I was willing to let go of my anger regarding my daughter being bit and what she had to go through that she could have let go of being upset about the Instagram post. I HAVE to believe she knows I did NOT do that to hurt her.
For Kim to throw out that she would say something about Alexia ( like she did to Lisa R. regarding Harry ) nearly took my breath away. But her dog is off limits?
So there you have it.
I don't even know what to say or do anymore. Clearly, we will never agree on this matter. And now we have more issues to work through, like my hurt and anger over Kim threatening to say something about my child. I know she loves Alexia, and it was just her being angry and "in the moment," but it's going to take me some time to get past that. All I know is I am glad I don't have to relive all of this again on TV. Now I need to take a step back .
Hopefully, time will heal my relationship with Kim. Time and having an open and honest relationship.
It's been a very difficult season. That's for sure. Thank you all for watching.
XO,
Kyle

P.S
Some things I would like to clear up:

A) I NEVER asked for Kingsley to be put down. I love all animals and know how much Kim loves Kingsley. That was never part of our argument.

B) Brooke's wedding : Brooke did a small ceremony at my sister Kathy's house (part of it aired this season), so that Monty would be well enough to walk her down the aisle. The wedding we were referring to at the reunion is her actual "big wedding " coming up. And NO, I did not do anything "unspeakable" or "unforgivable" at the wedding at Kathy's house like Brandi has (once again) put out there. It was a beautiful, perfect day that Brandi Glanville is now trying to throw negativity on. She was NOT EVEN THERE. On top of everything else Brandi has done, she now wants to turn that beautiful day that my family celebrated into something to lie and gossip about. Shame on her.
