Yolanda Gets Involved
Yolanda swears she's not a stage mother and comments on the drama that happened before she came to RHOBH.
How are you guys? I hope you had a great week and are ready for some more "drama". . .
First of all I'm sorry I did not livetweet this episode. I have a good excuse. I spontaneously flew to Tokyo and surprised my love for our one-year wedding anniversary! It’s been an amazing past couple of days but with the timezone difference I was unfortunately unable to tweet.
And now onto the episode. . .
Like I’ve said before, it's very hard for me to get involved with the stuff that happened last season because I wasn't there. However at this point, since all the women keep rehashing these events over and over, I know enough to have somewhat of opinion and as the season goes on, I definitely start voicing my concerns.
I must say that I don't understand why Kyle keeps going in circles around Lisa and Adrienne. She has so many opportunities to tell Adrienne that she owes Lisa an apology but she doesn't. She just chooses to avoid the confrontation and so it’s hard to understand whose side she is really on. Lisa is smart as always, choosing to leave early rather than deal with this issue at a children’s birthday party.
My humble opinion is that this has been going on way too long. Adrienne should have invited Lisa over for a cup of coffee, looked her straight in the eyes and given her a sincere apology from the heart. Sending an extravagant flower arrangement to the Villa Blanca party was meaningless and way too Hollywood for my taste. I wasn’t even sure if it was meant to be an insult or apologetic gesture.
I thought it was really nice seeing Mauricio and Paul go and support Taylor’s cause. It looks like everyone had a great time and I had fun watching it.
Looking at this episode, I really cracked myself up because I look like a complete control freak (which by the way I am). As you can tell, my Gigi isn't too thrilled to have us at her photo shoot. What you don’t see are the fun and sweet moments so I resemble this annoying stage mother that I am most definitely not.
Even the comment about Gigi's diet seems so shallow but the truth is, she was booked on a job in Paris the week after and it required her to stay disciplined with her healthy diet. I know this can be very hard for a 17 year old but it’s still a small price to pay for the financial independence it gives her at this young of an age. And you should all know, after her photo shoot we went to Le Crepe and pigged out on 3 crepes each. Yummy!
I think it was so nice for Kyle to invite me to Portia’s birthday party (who by the way is the cutest little girl ever) but I barely knew Kyle at this point, I had never met any of her children, and I have no young children of my own so I thought it’d be a little awkward going there. That’s why I chose to send a birthday present.
In all honesty, I don't really like getting all dressed up in the daytime and attending these fancy events in Beverly Hills. I would much rather stay in my jeans and do work at home while spending some time with my family.
I think Brandi made the right move in this episode when she chose to leave out of respect for Portia. The fact that Taylor doesn't even acknowledge her in front of all the girls is just so rude and disrespectful. I am not surprised by the fact that Taylor pretends she likes me. As the season progresses, you will see her attitude towards me is far from nice and her explanation for her behavior is even more disappointing. She is clearly trying to get the girls to gang up against Brandi but like I said last week, Brandi’s statement was harmless. It was Brandi being Brandi. . .she might not have a filter but she is direct, honest, and speaks straight from the heart, which seems to be a rarity in this group.
Anyways upwards and onwards! Have a great week!
