Brandi can't believe the back-and-forth Lisa put Kyle through, and she talks a bit about her makeout with Carlton.

Hi! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with love, laughter, and family. Now back to "reality." One thing I find really refreshing about the ladies of Beverly Hills is that we are not afraid to let you the viewers see the real side of us -- when we run around with no makeup on, in our gym clothes, hair a mess. I think it really does show people we're not afraid to let you in to our realities. No one is perfect, and we don't pretend to be. Most of us have children and have no time to sit around spending our time and money getting our hair and makeup done when it's not for a special event.

Watching this episode I started crying the second I saw Chica my puppy who went missing. Other then her obvious bathroom issues, she was the sweetest dog on the planet. I miss her every day and she will be missed forever. I spoke to my mom on the phone about my grandma's hip surgery and my upcoming book signing in Sacramento (my hometown), which also happened to fall on my father's birthday. At this point, my father and I are still not talking, and he is still having serious health issues with his heart. Ugh!

I am really feeling sorry for Kyle at this point with the ongoing, back-and-forth stance Lisa is taking about the Mauricio cheating scandal. Yes, we have all talked about it, and I myself even brought it up at lunch. But we all agreed it was BS. Months ago when it first came out, Lisa said she didn't know if the stories were true or not, which leaves people doubting Mauricio. Then she brought it up in front of Kyle and Mauricio's five year-old-daughter Portia, which was so inappropriate. When I brought it up to the group at Carlton's lunch, Lisa cut Yolanda off in the middle of her sentence and said "you mean there is no smoke with out fire," but then added she knew it was all rubbish. Which is it??? Now again sitting talking with Ken (knowing full well the ramifications) says she doesn't know if it is true or not and that they will never really know the truth.

I'm with Ken on this one, you should always let a friend know about harmful gossip, because it sucks to have people talking behind your back. You should always support and believe a friend (even a not-so-close-friend like Kyle and I were). Families first, middle age b----y-ness second.

I really love watching Kim with her family. She has come such a long way. I've gotten to know her a lot better over these past few months, and trust me when I say her kids are her life. Kim is a sweet, very nutty, soul, and I just adore her. I'm proud of how far she has come in her sobriety, and I know it is a daily struggle because I have plenty of sober friends. I sometimes feel guilty having a drink around her because I don't want her to judge me. But then I have to remember I have never claimed to be sober, especially not on vacations (as you see in the preview for next week's episode).

I felt so honored to be invited by David and Yolanda to watch David get his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. I had never been to one of these ceremonies and it was absolutely amazing. Every which way I turned there was another music legend. I may have snuck some pictures and stalked a few of these superstars for photos with me. I mean, come on it's a once in a life the opportunity to have all of these talented legendary people in the same room! It was a beautiful ceremony and I really enjoyed meeting Yolanda's mother, brother, and Natalie Cole!!!

Joyce invited us all to Palm Springs and, although she wasn't my favorite person at the time, I begrudgingly accepted. At this point, I was getting along with most of the girls. I just really didn't enjoy Joyce trying to drive a wedge between Yolanda, Lisa, and I simply for the sake of getting herself some attention with her embellished story.

Lisa and I were still in a good place at this time, so we decide to do a little bit of bathing suit shopping for our upcoming trip. Although I own over 100 bikinis, some of which are one-of-a-kind that I designed myself, I have a little bit of an obsession with them and can always use more. I picked out a few cute ones, and although I am happy with my body at 41 and after having two kids (and I do workout really hard), it is still annoying to see my little mommy belly baby pooch. But my boys were sooo worth it!

Oh and did I mention I kissed Carlton?

Until next week

Lisa R Reflects on That Bittersweet Episode

Lisa Rinna discusses the difficulties of becoming the caretaker for her parents and missing Kyle's BBQ.

What an emotional and bittersweet episode for me! My family means so much to me and to recently come to the realization that we are at the point in our lives where I am now the caretaker, rather than my mom and dad, is a hard one. Let me give you a little backstory on my dear parents, Frank and Lois. . .

Last November, my mom had a stroke and was in the hospital for three weeks, followed by outpatient care. This came as a devastating shock for us because my mom has always been in good health, incredibly vibrant and full of life since she worked and played tennis up until the day she had her stroke at 85. So, for her to not remember anything or speak incoherently was really life changing for everyone. My dad, being 92 years old himself, is on oxygen full-time and has relied on my mom to take care of him for some years now. With both of them needing round-the-clock care, my sister and I were faced with the very difficult decision of what to do. Hearing my dad tell us that "Where I am now isn't home. It's only where I sleeps at night," still brings tears to my eyes. How heartbreaking to know he feels this way. I realize there are many of you out there that can also relate to these difficult decisions we have to make as our parents age and their health fails them.

My mom made it very clear that she didn't want someone else living in their house with them, so the decision was made to move into the assisted care facility they live in now. In hopes of mom getting better, we didn't put the house up for sale right away, but as time passed, we realized the days of mom and dad being able to live in their own home were gone, and we put the house on the market this past summer. The house sold quickly, which is what took me up there to collect my childhood items and memories. Standing in our empty home, holding my mom as we both cried while reminiscing about old artwork brought back a flood of old memories I hadn't thought of for many, many years. And, of course, driving around Medford with my girls, saying goodbye to the neighborhood I grew up in was so bittersweet. As I mentioned on the show, I never quite felt like I belonged in the Medford community, but I am so incredibly grateful for the time I spent there because it's hometown charm is what made me who I am today and I wouldn't change a second of it. I really do have wonderful memories full of BBQs and friends and of course, colorful Jell-O salads thanks to my mom!

As you can see, my two girls are a hoot. They are unfiltered and say what's on their mind at any given moment. (I have no idea where they get this from!!!) I just love them for it AND am tortured by it at the same time. It meant the world to have them up there with me during this emotional time. HH was up in Vancouver filming his new show Rush, which meant he couldn't be there, so the comfort of my girls by my side was everything. I think having Delilah and Amelia with me to see and experience this circle of life is an important part of growing up.

I'm also glad you got to see some of the amazing watercolor paintings my dad has painted over the years. Their beauty has brought so many people so much joy and I'm happy that they're hanging up for people to keep on enjoying. He is an exceptional artist, and it's just heartbreaking to know that his shaky hands and failing health won't allow him to continue doing what he loves. He's a special man and I love him dearly.

It is so sad to say goodbye, but I will always have the memories and I feel so lucky to still have my parents only a quick flight and phone call away. I cherish the time I get to spend with them. They are my everything.

Alright, let's talk about what the other girls were up to while I was gone! First of all, I loved the lunch I had with Yolanda and Eileen before I left for Oregon. Such a small world to watch the two of them discuss how they were connected through their kids before actually meeting each other. And then to see Yolanda call Eileen to invite her to Kyle's BBQ made me so happy. I just knew the girls would love her! Oh, and Eileen is now $100 richer because she won that bet Brandi made with her at Kyle's house. Not only was I the original Billie Reed, but I created Billie on Days of Our Lives! Time to pay up, Brandi!

The BBQ at Kyle's house looked so beautiful and fun, I'm really sad to have missed it. Man, is she lucky to have her Ladysitter, Justin. I am not even kidding when I say that I want to steal him away from her. He is fabulous with helping Kyle and I know she knows how lucky she is to have him in her life!

Just when you think you couldn’t love Lisa V's adorable zoo any more than you already do, she introduces you to her gorgeous gay swans, Hanky and Panky. How much more fabulous can you get?

I think it's interesting to see Brandi trying to get some kind of closure with Lisa V. We have to remember that there are consequences to our actions with others. Sometimes we can move on quickly, other times it takes longer and sometimes not at all.

I hope you're all ready for a wonderful and stress free holiday. Take this time to enjoy your family and friends and I will see you back here next week! Sending blessings and love to you and your families!
