Cast Blog: #RHOBH

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!

Kyle: Kim and I Will Never Agree on This Matter

Kyle clarifies the Kingsley issue and responds to Brandi's most recent accusation. 

I don't want to write this blog. I didn't even want to watch this reunion, to be honest. There. I said it. But here I go....
Let's just dive right into the text message from Lisa Rinna to Kim.
I was very shocked to hear about that text. There is no excuse for that. I believe Lisa R. knows that. I can understand Kim being upset about that. I am sure she was taken aback, as we all were when we heard it. However, I don't think Lisa Rinna is a dangerous person. She just made a really bad choice.


Now onto Amsterdam and the space cake talk. Brandi went after me in Amsterdam regarding the space cake, because she doesn't like me and wanted to deflect from her own behavior once again. This was her big chance to say something about me, calling me a hypocrite for not partaking in the space cake. I have said it before, and I will say it again: I NEVER said I haven't smoked pot. I HAVE. It's just not my thing. I have a lot more fun having a few margaritas. Kim knows that. I would have appreciated her chiming in there. Also, I have NOT eaten a pot brownie or a space cake ever, and my husband had warned me that it would not suit me well, knowing my personality. You cannot gauge exactly what you're ingesting, and it wouldn't be smart. I didn't want to have a bad experience and "freak out," so to speak. Brandi herself wasn't partaking, because of her own reasons (which had to do with her divorce, as she explained), so wouldn't that make her a hypocrite then? WHY did she care if I did or did not choose to? Because she wanted to jump at the chance to make me look bad, since her behavior and her drinking had been front and center. Her drinking was out there, because she puts it out there, and she has nobody to blame but herself. If I HAD chosen to eat a space cake, she would have jumped on that, too. Anything to divert from her own actions which she was comparing to ours. All of us may have a few drinks, but NONE of us behave like her when we drink.
I only address this because it was on television. Her opinion of me is completely irrelevant to me. I only cared, because I am a mother, and her trying to make me out to be something I am not is reckless, as is everything else she does.
Ok. Enough of that. She beat that non-event to death. I think we can move on now.

Now this is the hard part...Kim and I had not spoken since Nov 1st. We both knew the situation with my daughter, Alexia, and Kim's dog, Kingsley, was bound to come up at the reunion. We don't get to pick and choose what we want to talk about.
Alexia had spent the night at Kim's house on Halloween. The next morning, Kingsley bit her. While scary, at first it didn't seem that serious. However, what the first doctor failed to notice was that the tooth had pierced the bone and also broken it. Five days later, we found out that her bone was infected and she needed surgery to clean out the bone. Kim was upset, because I had posted pictures from the hospital. Like I said at the reunion, I NEVER said her dog bit Alexia. Never mentioned her OR her dog. TMZ ended up finding out that it was Kim's dog, and she blamed me, because I posted the pictures from the hospital. I did not do that to hurt my sister in any way or to "get Instagram followers," like she suggested. With all of my family coming and going at the hospital, people were bound to find out and talk.


We were all with Alexia at the hospital trying to distract her and have fun. As any mother would do. We were all trying to make the best out of a bad situation. We invited family and friends to visit and tried to keep her spirits up. In hindsight, I wish I hadn't posted that picture, but I certainly didn't mean to hurt Kim. She posted a picture when she was in the hospital this year. Yolanda and Camille have done so regularly. And where is her responsibility in all of this? However, I do feel bad about what it has led to. And I've told her that. I also felt terrible because I know she loves Kingsley, but I also love my child. It was a difficult time for all involved. I didn't blame Kim personally regarding the dog and was willing to drop it and move forward, yet she was too angry with me regarding the Instagram post to be able to do that.
I wish that since I was willing to let go of my anger regarding my daughter being bit and what she had to go through that she could have let go of being upset about the Instagram post. I HAVE to believe she knows I did NOT do that to hurt her.
For Kim to throw out that she would say something about Alexia ( like she did to Lisa R. regarding Harry ) nearly took my breath away. But her dog is off limits?
So there you have it.
I don't even know what to say or do anymore. Clearly, we will never agree on this matter. And now we have more issues to work through, like my hurt and anger over Kim threatening to say something about my child. I know she loves Alexia, and it was just her being angry and "in the moment," but it's going to take me some time to get past that. All I know is I am glad I don't have to relive all of this again on TV. Now I need to take a step back .
Hopefully, time will heal my relationship with Kim. Time and having an open and honest relationship.
It's been a very difficult season. That's for sure. Thank you all for watching.
XO,
Kyle

P.S
Some things I would like to clear up:

A) I NEVER asked for Kingsley to be put down. I love all animals and know how much Kim loves Kingsley. That was never part of our argument.

B) Brooke's wedding : Brooke did a small ceremony at my sister Kathy's house (part of it aired this season), so that Monty would be well enough to walk her down the aisle. The wedding we were referring to at the reunion is her actual "big wedding " coming up. And NO, I did not do anything "unspeakable" or "unforgivable" at the wedding at Kathy's house like Brandi has (once again) put out there. It was a beautiful, perfect day that Brandi Glanville is now trying to throw negativity on. She was NOT EVEN THERE. On top of everything else Brandi has done, she now wants to turn that beautiful day that my family celebrated into something to lie and gossip about. Shame on her.
