Why Brandi Didn't Go to the Doctor

Brandi explains what was keeping her from checking on her hand, and defends Lisa missing Yolanda's party.

I broke my hand on a Thursday. I had my friend who is a MMA fighter and boxer wrap it for me and was happy to go to Carlton's party on Sunday. I did not go to the doctor for a few reasons. First, I barely had any time to -- and second I didn't have medical insurance at the time. I had been trying for the last year to get medical coverage, but had been turned down because of a pre-existing condition. I have two little boys to take care of and I didn't want to waste my money on myself and have yet another reason to be turned down for insurance.

I now have medical insurance, and, yes, my hand did heal a little deformed. My best friend drove up from San Diego, thank goodness, because with my right hand broken I couldn't really do my hair or makeup, and so I got a helping hand from my girls.

We all went over to Carlton's for her very sexy party. I've never been to a party like that in town of Beverly Hills, but it was interesting and fun -- and all about the company for me. Yolanda looked stunning and exuded elegance, without being stuffy like some of the other gals that refused to get in the pool. But to each their own!

I wasn't there when it happened, but I thought it was a really nice gesture when Kyle gave Carlton the necklace she was wearing. Maybe these two can start fresh.

Watching Kim engage with her fans gave me a a sense of how her life must have been while she was growing up. It was nice to see her in her element. She seemed very happy.

Yolanda planned a day of painting in her lemon grove and that morning I woke up and my hand was worse then ever. I wasn't sure if I could actually drive my car safely all the way out to Malibu, and I was honestly debated taking a cab to the ER. Instead I called Uber and headed out (with swollen hand, bad hair, and little makeup) to Yolanda's. I'm generally on time and not one to flake, but I was a little bit late to this event.

The setting was beautiful, and as I painted my hand was throbbing so I had to switch hands -- and I must say my painting was the least attractive of the group. Carlton brought up Kyle's name, and I can honestly say that Kyle has never talked to me about Carlton. I don't think Kyle would because she knows that I really dig Carlton. But I do feel the tension when I am around them.  

As far as Lisa canceling at the last minute, it isn't cool but things do happen.

Our parents always tell us never to talk about politics or religion because those conversations never end well -- and guess what they are very very right. I was joking about Carlton putting a spell on Kyle and then Joyce chimes in with an insult about Carlton's religion and the whole "My beliefs are better then yours, and my God can kick Wiccans ass" fight starts. I personally believe that we are all entitled to our own beliefs and no ones God is better then any one else's beliefs.

Brandi: I'm Always Here For You, Kim

Brandi focuses on the positive this week as this season's RHOBH comes to an end.

Hey Bravo Fans,

Today was a fabulous day--t was my baby Jake’s birthday. We got his favorite Oreo ice cream cake, and for our family celebration, it was perfection. I can’t believe he’s already eight. I had to hold back my tears when I realized I will never again use that number eight candle. #mommymoment

It has been a really exciting week for me. My Sonoma County chardonnay, Unfiltered Blonde, launched for pre-sales this week, and despite it being tax season, the first day alone was a huge success. Thank you! The website is up now at www.unfilteredblonde.com. The creation of the wine was an incredibly long and careful process, and I couldn’t be happier or more proud of my finished product. I’m sure you're all as excited as me that this week was the FINALE episode of BATSH-- crazy RHOBH reunion. 

I could talk about the she said, she said, she said… but let’s not and pretend we did. It’s been a long season, kind of centering on one night that really isn’t worth the attention it was given. I’m tired of it, it happened several months ago, I’m sure you’re tired of it. You know why? Because it’s old news and in the PAST! 

Eileen, your house is lovely. Sorry I said otherwise for the sake of a laugh. I really like Vincent, he is super cool, your little boy is adorable, you seem like a good stepmom, and I wish you and your family the very best.

Lisa R., I really loved you on my podcast. You made me laugh and rolled with punches. I really enjoyed our interview, and I enjoyed most of the season with you. I think that’s what I’m going to take away and forget about the rest. I think sometimes you make it harder on yourself with your Twitter feed, but I’m choosing not to engage. I really liked a side of you, and you seem to have a beautiful family.

Lisa V., I had a lot of fun with you and Ken. I will always have a special place in my heart for you guys. I wish Ken the best of health and a speedy recovery. 

Kyle, best wishes on you and your family’s endeavors. My sincerest wish is that you and Kim could be as close as you ever were in the near future.

You are a strong chica and I know your family is better for it. 

Brandi Glanville

Kim, love having you as a BFF. I’m always here for you, and I hope you are always here for me. You are a strong chica, and I know your family is better for it. You are hilarious, and I love our funny talks and text-offs. Laughter is the best medicine. I heart you.

Yo, my dear, dear Yo, I will see you soon. I love you, you are so strong and so brave! I know you are going to kick Lyme disease’s ass! Anything you need, just emoji me.

I want to thank all my supporters for always being there for me regarding all of my other endeavors, including my books, podcast, Celebrity Apprentice, app, my t-shirts, and finally my WINE and for allowing me to be me.

Ok guys, this is the big week. This is the Make*A*Wish Los Angeles Walk for Wishes Walkathon. Me and the boys pledged to try to raise $15,000--I have $12,625 so far. We need $2,375 by Friday at midnight, every dollar counts. Thank you!

I heart you all!

Xoxo
