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!

Lisa R.: It Felt Just As Awkward As It Looked

Lisa R. talks about the night that went from bad to worse.

Well things just went from zero to sixty rather quickly, didn’t they? Early on, I said how being on this season was similar to being on a roller coaster, and here we are. I feel like up to this point, we have been slowly climbing that first big hill and now we’re at the top, looking down at all of the scream-worthy, white-knuckled action ahead of us.

The quick whirlwind trip to Santa Barbara that Kyle planned was so much fun and full of laughter and really great girl time. The only thing missing from the trip was Yolanda, but she was off having her own wonderful bonding time with her gorgeous girls. It almost seems calling both Gigi and Bella gorgeous is an understatement. The camera loves those Hadid girls, just like it loves their beautiful momma, doesn’t it?

This was a completely different, very unpredictable, and aggressive Kim sitting next to me in the car, and to be honest, it made me feel extremely nervous and anxious.

Needless to say, the rides to and from Santa Barbara were full of crazy conversations. Is it strange to anyone else that we keep talking about grooming habits down there? Seems to be an oddly recurring theme. Anyway, I thought the lunch and wine tasting actually went rather well, all things considered. All of us were concerned about how Kim felt being put into this situation. Like I mentioned, I didn’t know where Kim was in her sobriety at that point with being around alcohol or others drinking it in front of her. I thought she handled it well by knowing when to excuse herself, as I’m sure the whole situation made her uncomfortable. And I certainly know how uncomfortable Kyle was. She really had no idea the lunch would center around drinking. Overall, I’d say the whole trip to Santa Barbara was a success.

The poker tournament at Eileen’s house, however, didn’t quite have the same successful outcome…

I knew the night was going to be a wild one when I saw how Kim was behaving when she arrived at my house before heading to Malibu. She asked to use the bathroom and was acting as if she was high on something, which is why I asked her if she had been drinking or was on drugs when we got into the car. I mean, HELLO! Could that car ride with Kim be any more awkward? Let me tell you, it felt just as awkward as it looked to all of you. I really had no idea what was going on or what to do. Every interaction I have ever had with Kim up until that point was light, fun, and easy going. This was a completely different, very unpredictable, and aggressive Kim sitting next to me in the car, and to be honest, it made me feel extremely nervous and anxious. I wasn’t sure if it was an act or a game we were playing, but deep down in my gut, I knew there was more to it and something was going on with her. I couldn’t get out of that car fast enough when we arrived at Eileen’s home, and I really had no idea what she would do next.

Before we dive deeper into the chaos of the night, I have to say that Vinny is quickly becoming one of my favorites. He’s just so charming and funny, and I love watching him and Eileen banter back and forth. They are such a dynamic couple. Unfortunately, what started as a lovely evening hosted by this fabulous couple quickly disintegrated into a mess of strange behavior. Who knew sitting around a poker table would send some of the girls to the dark side? The repetitive use of the word ‘stupid’ was absolutely unacceptable, though not altogether surprising as Kim and Brandi’s behavior speaks for itself.

That’s all superficial level stuff though that can roll off my back. The part that’s really hard was to watch Kyle realize with both fear and confusion what was going down in front of her own eyes. Kyle is no stranger to this complicated road she’s been down before with Kim, and I know what a deep relationship the two sisters have, so I really feel for her.

I’m sure Lisa V. is thrilled that she wasn’t a part of the crazy evening at Eileen’s. Instead, we got to watch her and Giggy, the little Sex Monster, play nude on the beach in Cabo. I know she was on a much-needed vacation, and I’m happy she was there with her family and precious Gigster.

Looks like we’re picking up speed and not stopping anytime soon!

Xo, LR
