Yolanda Doesn't Like Drunken Women

And she wonders why a few of the ladies couldn't abstain (Kyle particularly) for Kim's sake.

Hello everyone, the weeks are just flying by -- Christmas will be here before we know it. I always look forward to connect with you and write this blog to give you a better idea of my experience of coming into this new group of friends. Some days it feels like my first day at a new school. I'm sure most of you can relate to that feeling.

Before I met David, I lived in Santa Barbara where I spent a lot of time horse-showing and hiking in Ojai. It's a very spiritual place and the nature is just amazing.

I understood from Kim that this trip was about bonding with the girls. I was excited to go because I thought it would be a great way to get to know everyone in a casual way. I can't remember the last time I left my family to go on a girl's trip.

The first night at dinner I really loved the way Brandi took the initiative to speak to Kim. They were having such a beautiful, long, and overdue heart-to-heart. Kim is really emotional right now, but that's understandable. She is letting go of a lot of old stuff. Brandi seems to be really good about admitting to her own mistakes and trying to move on after recognizing them. That's what I love about her. She does not get stuck in the past.

Even though Adrienne's remarks are so annoying, I wish B could have chosen a different way to address her. Kyle and Lisa's debate is clearly showing the separation in this group. Lisa does not agree with Brandi's language, however she is still protective of her. And Lisa has every right to do so, especially considering Kyle is always defending Adrienne.

I am so happy for Brandi's book deal and finding a way to support her kids. I honestly don't understand why Kyle, Taylor, and Adrienne are so rude and unsupportive for someone else's success. It just seems so catty and mean -- it's all very disheartening to me.

I am not surprised to hear Kyle say that no one is listening to me. . .I try my best to measure my words carefully. . .God gives you two ears and one mouth so I think we're supposed to listen twice as much as we speak. I don't think she got that memo because she only likes the sound of her own voice.

I woke up very early this morning because I was excited to have a sporty day outdoors. Trying to get everyone to go on a hike was a big challenge, the hair, the make-up, the jewelry. . .it was like a fashion show! Luckily, we did end up having a really great walk, talking and connecting like women should.

The golf cart ride was really the first time we were all laughing and having a great time. I really enjoyed the little race between Lisa and me. We were being competitive but all in good fun, of course. It still makes me giggle. It's too bad that as we get older, we stop being silly in that way.

Our badminton game was just a crack-up. I thought Lisa looked absolutely adorable. At least she was wearing sneakers. Kyle thinks she looks like a beekeeper? I was thinking, "Look in the mirror, girl. You are wearing 8-inch heels, a see-through mini dress, and a Chanel purse on the badminton field. . .ugh, really?"

By the time we got to the spa, we were in a goofy mood, cracking jokes and what not. It is really hard to calm down and meditate with the mud treatment after all that. Lisa and I were on a roll so a little fun seemed in place.

I was also looking forward to the camaraderie of cooking our own dinner but instead we were spoiled with this amazing spread of healthy foods by chef Chad.

The dinner was great and I was happy to finally be asked a more in-depth question of why I was not drinking alcohol but my answer did not seem to impress anyone [Laughs]. Anyway in Europe, we are raised with holistic medicine. I had been dealing with the pain of breaking my back while delivering my son and the ensuing triple back fusion for 13 years, but in March when I started having extreme joint pain all over my body, I decided to go to Germany to do the fresh cell therapy, which is a holistic way to revitalize the body's own cells in order to treat disease.

Now looking back, that was the first onset of my ME-CFS. I just did not know it at that time.

It is interesting to hear Adrienne discuss her difficult labor. And it was sweet of Camille to share her surrogacy story. It's those stories that makes women bond.

Once the girls start drinking, it’s time for Kim and me to excuse ourselves. I had such a fun day and really wanted to end it that way. Usually I too love to enjoy a glass of wine and have fun but I don't like to see the kind of influence alcohol has had on some of the woman in this group. Anyway, I came here to support Kim and celebrate her sobriety so out of respect to her, maybe we should have scratched the alcohol for the weekend?

For me personally, there is nothing better than getting a good night sleep and going for a run in the morning and enjoying nature.

I am wondering why that would make Kyle feel guilty? Exercise and a healthy lifestyle is a choice -- I hope it doesn't look like I am preaching. I was just sharing.

I know I sound like a broken record already. I'm obviously very opinionated about this alcohol thing to Kyle but I just don't like drunken women and I am a kind of annoyed with her for not backing up and supporting her sister who just came out of rehab and would most likely appreciate Kyle taking this precious time to reconnect with her.

Overall, I think it was a good trip. The ride home was pretty uneventful. The limo dropped Camille and I off on the 101 and we shared a car back to Malibu and had some nice bonding time.

Anyway I absolutely love Lisa's accent and I say don't ever change girlfriend, no matter what anyone of these girls say. . .

They're just jealous. . .

Have a great week everyone!

Kim: My Heart Felt So Big

Kim discusses her daughter's wedding and her special relationship with Monty.

The countdown...Less than 10 days before Christmas! I hope you are almost ready for the holiday!

This is an exciting episode for me as I share with you all a peek into one of the most important days of our lives: The day my Brookie married the man of her dreams. Brooke and Thayer have known each other since birth, it's fate...God...love... I am truly blessed!


Kyle and Maurice's trip to Mallorca looked absolutely amazing! It looked like everybody had a great time. Yolanda always keeps her high. These situations put things into perspective for us. We love our children so much! We give me them everything inside us to make them strong young people, and at the end of the day, we can only hope that they are going to make the right choices.

It was cute watching Eileen go over her dialogue with her niece. It reminded me of my sisters and me. I was very happy to see that Lisa V. got her star on the Palm Springs Walk of Fame! How exciting to see all her fans dressed in pink! She looked so pretty, and Ken couldn't have looked prouder. Congrats to Lisa V., Ken and Giggy!

One of my favorites couples is David and Yolanda. Listening to the two of them, well I just love them together and the team that they make! They support and balance each other so perfectly, and that is also what makes them such great parents!
Oh Brandi and her podcast! Filtered and unfiltered, she's so damn funny! All day long!

I had no idea he would end up giving me one of the most wonderful gifts of my entire life, our daughter Brooke, or that he would be my best friend from that day forward.

You all officially get to meet Monty! I met Monty when I was 19, on a blind date. Go figure! I had no idea he would end up giving me one of the most wonderful gifts of my entire life, our daughter Brooke, or that he would be my best friend from that day forward.

We were married for a brief time, but our hearts never parted! Giving birth to our daughter, we shared a bond, but our friendship has always been so deep. We have always made being parents to our daughter a priority. Monty has always been kind of a wanderer but has stayed at my home on and off over the last 15 years. In June, Monty was diagnosed with lung cancer, and I decided it was time for Monty to move in for good. He moved in full time with me, and I fixed a room where he is very comfortable and we all feel very good knowing Monty is where he needs to be and he is in good, loving hands! As you can see, Monty and I have a great friendship! We really do enjoy each other's company, and I can't imagine my life without him. So we are not thinking that way! Positive thoughts only!

Brooke and Thayer got engaged Christmas morning 2013. One of the most exciting phone calls and Christmases ever! Their plan was a destination beach wedding in 2015, however, our plans took a shift when we found out about Monty. Of course the most important thing right then was that Brooke could have her father walk her down the aisle, and that Monty would be strong enough! Brooke knew exactly what she wanted. She and I worked non-stop with an amazing team of people! From Mark Zunino designing the most amazing dress, Petals by David flying in the most Gorgeous Flowers, Glen our caterer, and our fantastic coordinator Vanessa, we were able to do just that.


Brooke and Thayer wed on August 2, 2014. It was only our family. A very intimate, private ceremony! The most magical and special evening . I wish I could tell you what I was thinking, the flashbacks to so many memories. Brooke was radiating with joy! More joy than I had ever seen come from that little face! She looked stunning! I, too, was overwhelmed with joy. I was so grateful to see her arm and arm with her dad, walking down the aisle, to join her soon-to-be husband. When she got to Thayer, each second became more and more intense! Then she looked over and at me and mouthed the words, "I love you." I thought I was going to fall out of my chair! My heart felt so big! 


The vows, the kiss, and then they were married!

Thank you for sharing this amazing, magical, and special moment with us!

xo,
Kim
