Taylor's Trash Talk Is Poisonous

Yolanda wishes Taylor would have taken the time to get to know her before judging her.

Hello Bravo lovers! Sorry I missed you last week but I had just started my 30-day program at a wellness center in Florida and I wasn't feeling well enough to focus on writing a sensible blog.

After 85 days of IV antibiotics and minor results, I've decided to give the holistic route a shot. Thank you so much for all of your well wishes, I am truly touched by your kindness.

It's nice to see some sisterhood from Kim and Kyle, as best friends of Taylor's, it seems appropriate for them to worry about her and have that so difficult talk. I love the way Kim took charge and is now taking on the reversed roll in trying to help others, maybe she is finding her new mission in life.

We all know it was a conversation long past due. As much as I have disliked Taylor's drunken antics, I have to say she seemed very sincere when confronted and definitely owned her issue. I believe acknowledging our own mistakes is half the problem solved. Taylor's tragedy is the unthinkable and more then anyone could possibly handle but I am hopeful she can pull her life together for the sake of her little Kennedy.

I was excited to have the gang over to Mohamed's for a little house warming cocktail party and showing of his latest creation. Even though I mention his infidelity at this point after 12 years, I have forgiven him and choose not to remember the pain it caused me but only what it taught me.

Establishing a friendship after divorce takes great effort and a lot of swallowing of your pride and ego. But at the end of the day, the children's happiness and well-being is all that ever mattered to me. I truly believe that they love both parents equally and they deserve to have both parents in their life peacefully.

My children are blessed with three parents; David is extraordinary and an absolute blessing in our life. He has always been so great with Mohamed and is an incredible stepfather to our children. It's really special to see the mutual respect between two men that are connected through circumstances.

I am not that blessed in the ex-wives club, but I have great stepdaughters and I will always keep trying to bring everyone together and take great pride in being the driving force behind our big unconventional family.

Taylor was one of the women who did not really embrace me coming into this group and I kept hearing that she had issues with me so I finally decided to confront her.

Even though I don't believe we can or need to all be best friends, I still feel we need to look each other in the eyes and be honest. Trash talk is poisonous and a bad habit! Maybe if Taylor had taken the time to have a coffee with me, she might have liked me before she wasted her precious time not liking me.

I just realized she is now trying to make it about my husband. Geez, she doesn't even know my husband so she is judging him on whatever his ex-wife has told her. . .

Well Miss Taylor, remember there are always three sides to a story. His, hers, and the truth, so maybe get the other two-thirds of the story before you let your mouth run on someone you don't even know!

Anyway, more to come on this subject. . .

I am so happy Brandi and David finally met, as you remember she was out of town for the diner party at our house.

Brandi is right, we had that instant connection when we met. Even though we might use different communication tools, our lives were pretty similar growing up and I absolutely respect her honesty. She is straightforward and I love knowing she has my back.

Off to France we are. . .

I absolutely loved seeing Grandpa Ken with Ryan. How cute was that?

I am excited to go on the girls' trip to Paris because if I am going to invest my time into this group, it's important to explore our new friendships and start creating new memories together so we can move on from all the negative stuff from the past couple of months.

Sadly the trip started with the terrible news of Richard Zanuck's passing. What a shock! I don't know Marisa and Dean very well but I did know Richard and Lilly. Such a loss! It definitely put things in perspective for everyone. Especially in this group of women where there is so much drama and precious time wasted arguing. It kind of brought us close and everyone began making a conscious effort to get along and really enjoy every minute of every day.

We sat around and talked a lot on our flight to Paris and started to bond on a different level then the more superficial way at a lunch or dinner party. Once we got to Paris, the fireworks were just the perfect welcome to the most romantic city in the world. The only thing missing was my love and a boyfriend for Brandi and Kim. I guess Brandi thinks one would have been enough for both.

I personally did not think much of Kim being late, but then again, I don't know her in her previous life and am just getting to know her.

Anyways it's going to be a lot of fun exploring Paris with the Beverly Hillbillies!

Make sure you tune in next week because you don't want to miss it!

Until then, au revoir.

Lisa R.: Kyle Didn't Create This Drama

Lisa R. thinks there are two ladies who aren't taking responsibility for their actions.

I have to start the week off by giving a shout out to all of you. During last week’s episode and throughout the week, your tweets have been pouring in, and you guys really make me laugh. Yes, as a matter of fact I DID want to dive-roll head first out of that car ride with Kim onto the freeway and run. Run Forrest, run! All of your support and understanding means everything!

So, we pick up right where we left off, but before we do, I’d like to note that Kyle wasn’t the one to create any of this drama. It was Kim that chose to walk back in the house after Brandi had escorted her outside and told her NOT to go back in. There was a lot of alcohol and God knows what other drugs influencing a lot of the behaviors, so no matter what, the outcome wasn’t going to be a good one. Like a Dr. Phil quote I used on Twitter last week, “When you choose the behavior, you choose the consequence.” While I have compassion and empathy for these women and what I see playing out in front of me, there seems to be a lot of blame that both Kim and Brandi are trying to place on Kyle, and in my opinion they aren’t accepting the consequences from their behavior.

Now that some time has passed and I have really had some time to digest the situation, I myself have some questions just like all of you. Why did Kim go to Eileen’s poker night if she was sick with pneumonia and bronchitis? I don’t doubt that major illnesses like these made her feel terrible. So, then why go in the first place and then exacerbate these illnesses by smoking cigars all evening? I’m quite certain that had I been as ill as she was, I would have been in my bed pickling myself in oil of oregano and overdosing on vitamin C and echinacea. But again, as I didn’t know where she was in her sobriety, I also didn’t know where she was in her illnesses.

To me, there seems to be a lot of pain being masked by alcohol.

Lisa Rinna

As far as Brandi goes, my comments are coming from a place of experience and concern. I’ve been, like I know many many of you have also, a part of lives that have been affected by addiction. And to echo Yolanda’s sentiments, I have a hard time wrapping my brain around the idea of grown women, mothers in particular,
behaving this way. To me, there seems to be a lot of pain being masked by alcohol. Granted, I don’t know what goes on in Brandi’s life outside of this. I only know what I observe in this environment.

I’m just so happy that the darn Stella & Dot party was successful. Hallelujah! Holly Robinson Peete had done a similar party that had an amazing turnout, and I was beyond thrilled to host my own. The Noreen Fraser Foundation’s mission, "to find a way to live with cancer and not die from it" is very close to my heart. Both my mother and sister are recent breast cancer survivors with double masectomies, so it was very important to me that the party be a successful one. It meant so much to me that everyone, with the exception of Kim being in the hospital, showed up despite what had recently gone down. By the grace of God, everyone kept their composure, bought a ton of jewelry, and appeared to have a good time. Big thanks to Stella & Dot for helping to raise so much money and to Gourmet 47 and Hourie for catering the amazing food.

Giant kudos to Eileen for speaking her mind with Brandi at my house. She always knows how to remain classy and sophisticated even in the most uncomfortable of situations. I admire her deeply for that.

Lisa V.’s impeccable brood continues to grow as we see her add Pumpy to the family. What a gorgeous and incredibly lucky dog she is to take on the Vanderpump name. If only she truly knew what a lucky bitch she is!

Next week is the Gay Mixer and yes, I finally understand that I shouldn’t come naked. Again, I ask my dear gay friends forgiveness for not understanding what Kyle meant. Sometimes it just takes me a minute to catch these innuendos. Oy. Be sure to keep your seatbelts safely fastened as we are still experiencing turbulence!

Until next week….

Xo, LR
