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

Lisa R.: Kim Tends to Forget Key Events

Lisa R. thinks Kim is forgetting something very important. 

Well, hello again! The top of this week’s episode starts off so fun but quickly dive rolls into a frenzy of accusations, hurt feelings, and drama. So, let’s just get right down to it, shall we?

The Fantastic Race was fun. Sort of. The idea of a scavenger hunt with teams was great and intentions were in the right place, but you let some Housewives run loose on a hot day in the streets of Beverly Hills with specific rules to follow, and sh-- is bound to hit the fan. Complaints ran amok, rules were broken, a lot of dairy was consumed, and tour buses were hijacked. But what can I say other than I was more than happy and willing to support Yolanda. Oh, and congratulations to Eileen for holding her team together and pulling off the win.

Next we head off to Calgary to be a part of the David Foster Foundation Gala, which raises money to support families with children in need of an organ transplant. Before we arrive there however, I had quite an intense conversation with Kim Richards about her sobriety on the plane. She had been unusually quiet and uneasy around me, and me being one to crack an egg wide open to get to the heart of the problem asked her flat out if she was upset with me.

She was told that I had been talking to numerous people about her sobriety. Or rather, lack of sobriety. She wanted me to back off and stop talking behind her back, but here’s the thing you guys: I had just had a conversation to her face in Eileen’s kitchen. I looked into her eyes and flat out said, “You can get help. You can talk to people. You can go to a meeting and find a group, so you aren’t alone.” Lisa V. was also right there during this conversation offering her own support, to which Kim literally responded with, “Blah, blah, blah…”

As we have seen before, Kim tends to conveniently forget key events and things that are said in her presence, so maybe I should have seen her response of "Blah, blah, blah" as "I am literally and physically not listening to any of this." Who knows. But what I do know is that particular conversation cannot be twisted into me talking behind her back. When I speak with someone about someone else, I absolutely HAVE TO then speak to the person I have just spoken about. That is what a friend does. Where there’s smoke, there’s fire, and I happen to really like firemen, so I will go straight to that source every time. Haha!

The tense conversation between Kim and I on the plane, though, was just too much. She chose to speak to me as if I were a child and yelled at me each time I apologized to her. I don’t know how many times I apologized, and she decided to snub and fire back an icy, “Just drop it!” or “Leave it alone!” instead of carrying on a normal conversation where both people can speak like mature grown ups.

Of course, the bug in Kim’s ear is Brandi, Queen of Deflection. The reason I sat down for lunch with her was for me to ask why SHE is so aggressive and why SHE says the hurtful things she does and why SHE thinks it’s ok to act like a 3-year-old. I wanted to have a face-to-face, open and honest conversation with her about what makes her tick the way she does, so I could form my own opinions outside of what the other women have told me. As I can now see in hindsight, Brandi steered our lunch conversation to be about Kim, so we didn’t have to talk about why Brandi is the way she is. I would have liked to see Brandi be honest with Kim about her concerns she shared with me that day, but from what I can tell, Brandi seems scared of Kim and basically just tossed the whole messy situation on me. If anything, I would say we’re actually witnessing Brandi talk behind Kim’s back, since she didn’t share any of her parts of the conversation. Very irresponsible and definitely not what I would call a good friend.

We get to Calgary, and I can honestly say that the David Foster Foundation Gala was one of the best and most impressive events I have ever attended. Babyface, Jennifer Hudson, Jackie Evancho...and the list of amazing performances goes on and on! Raising $8.2 million dollars is unbelievable, and knowing that money goes towards children needing organ transplants and taking care of the family’s needs during that time is incredibly heartwarming. The amazing people of Calgary are so generous, and I have to say, I’ve never seen more money raised at a charity event ever! Dancing on the table with my mascara smeared down to my knees was a fun added bonus and then to see Steven Tyler plant those gorgeous lips on Kyle Richards--OMG I die. Thanks to Yolanda for having us all there with her and David and all of the other wonderful attendees.

We make it to Amsterdam, and as you can see, we clearly packed the crazy train in our carry-on luggage. I was kinda hoping it would be left at home, but we just wouldn’t be us without it, now would we? Kim continues to constantly bitch at her sister in the airport and create a scene, which is only the beginning for lots more craziness to come!

Hope you’re ready…

XO,

LR
