Carlton: I Didn't Want Kyle's Ring

Carlton tries to explain the oddity around Kyle's peace offering -- and how Lisa had nothing to do with her refusal. 

I love Objets d'Art & Spirit. It is a favorite place of mine to visit when I feel like I'm in need of a little positive, protective something. I was first introduced to it by an amazing lady Kathleen who I met years ago in Kona, Hawaii. It's one of those places that's filled with beautiful magical energy as are the people that work there. I've always used candles, but these are truly on another level. It was a pleasure for me to share this treasured place with Yolanda as I knew she would appreciate its spiritual value. Aside from these candles they have wonderful crystals, which I knew Yolanda would like, since she too has crystals in her own home.

Of course on the negative side there's Kyle and Joyce, yet again bashing my religion. These two are like dogs with a bone they just can't stop themselves from consistently insulting and mocking my faith. I don't care if they believe or don't believe, I don't want to hear it. It makes no difference to me. For the last time I am not here to change anyone's religious or spiritual beliefs, nor am I recruiting thank god. You will never hear me challenge their religions, which I actually have respect for. But evidently, with their limited narrow minds, they are having a hard time understanding that concept. What's so telling about both of their characters is when Kyle tells Joyce nonchalantly that she called me anti-Semetic and Joyce has no bloody reaction not even a flinch. I appreciate that Yolanda agreed that it was ignorant too.

Anti-Semite is ust another word in her arsenal of reckless labels without any accountability. The problem with people like her is that it has become second nature to be rude and dismissive, spewing out hateful remarks means nothing because they've gotten away with it for so long.

So telling that Joyce says she doesn't believe in Wiccan. Really? What is it exactly about the Wicca faith that she doesn't believe? Did she really just deny it's entire existence of which millions of people world wide are practicing Wiccans. Wicca is a recognized religion in the military! How can she seriously be that ignorant? Do they both understand that I am not the only practicing Wiccan out there, that they desperately feel the constant need to be so offensive about this particular faith. I am quite sure that I'm not the only one insulted by their gross antics. In fact I know this to be only too true.

With regards to Puerto Rico, Joyce and I had that lunch where by we agreed to move on. Sort of the way her and Brandi moved on. They weren't close either but Brandi was invited by Kyle. The disinviting by Joyce specifically, well only one word comes to mind "hypocrite." Joyce never had the courtesy to call and let me know that because of Kyle she was withdrawing the invitation. Yolanda was the one who was kind enough to give me the heads up at Gigi's party. And again Kyle was never invited by myself or my husband to his StockCross party and now suddenly Joyce's trip became Kyle and Joyce. Laughable, but thank you for that after what I heard you did to Lisa down there.

Yolanda invited David and I to her daughter Gigi's celebration, of which I assured Yolanda I was purely there for her and her family and there was no way I would deal with Kyle if she engaged me. It was also great meeting Mohamed and his gorgeous fiancé. I had heard so many great things about them and his house is unbelievably stunning. We had a good giggle about the tattoo, too.

What does Kyle expect? Of course, I have a hard time looking at her. I was cordial I said "hello," but I have no interest in engaging with her whatsoever. I can't fake liking her after her slanderous accusation. And yet again in her talking head, she makes more negative and mocking digs about my practice. Hardly shocking anymore -- just vile.

Listening to Gigi and Yolanda speak was really emotional and I can't even imagine what it will be like when my babies are ready for college. I will be a puddle! Gigi is a wonderful reflection of Mohamed and Yolanda and David too, their children are such beautiful souls. Unfortunately we had to leave as my husband's Stockcross event was the night before and he had clients that had flown in from NYC meeting with him -- and I was happy to go home to my children.

This is where it gets odd. I want to explain the bizarreness of this situation and what was going through my mind at that moment. David and I stood up to leave, Kyle and Brandi still sitting there. I turn to kiss Lisa and Ken goodnight, turn back and literally they've both disappeared within seconds. That was odd and I thought maybe she was avoiding saying goodbye (thankfully). We walk up the steps and suddenly there's Brandi's with this ring and a really confusing explanation. I honestly felt like I was being ambushed in that moment, it was a little surreal.

I wasn't quite sure what was going on. Why would Kyle, who was just there moments ago, run and hide and send in Brandi immediately on our way out with a gold ring that apparently went with the necklace, which was blue. Lisa and I felt the same, completely confused with Brandi's reason. It didn't make sense. In that moment all these thoughts are rushing though my mind. I stood there completely at a loss and thank god my incredible husband saw I was struggling and he was there to snap me out of it.

If Kyle was giving it as a peace offering then she should have done it herself and explained the connection between the two pieces rather than having someone else do it for her which seems to be her obvious M.O. But on the other hand if she didn't want it then throw the bloody thing out. Didn't she just uninvite me that same night to Puerto Rico which was Joyce's trip originally? Why would I expect anything else? Just more stupid setups and games.

But as for Kyle and Brandi to blame Lisa for her stating the obvious confusion and for my subsequent actions refusing the ring is bloody ridiculous. I did not want the ring. It was my choice. Lisa had nothing to do with that and she certainly wasn't acting sneaky or inserting herself into anything that didn't concern her. It wasn't Kyle who tried to give me the ring, she had Brandi do it for her. Look I like Brandi, but I didn't like what was happening. My husband saw exactly what was going on and didn't like it either and that's when I woke up to the bulls---.

It seems to me that every chance Kyle can blame Lisa for something even if Lisa isn't the main focus of a problem Kyle will find a way to do it. However Lisa I feel is completely desensitized to Kyle's constant setups and jealousy. These relationships are so painfully and unnecessarily complicated.

Oh here's a Spanish idiom that sums up Kyle's character "to throw the stone and hide the hand" maybe she's heard of that one.

Until next week. . .Have a Blessed One.

Kim: Don't Mistake My Sadness for Weakness

Kim thinks Brandi and Kyle's fight at poker night had very little to do with her.

Today’s episode started exactly where we left off, back at Eileen’s poker night. I remember just wanting to leave so badly that I just kept on walking and didn’t even see the physical altercation between Brandi and Kyle. I was caught between a rock and a hard place. I mean one is my sister and one is my friend. I wanted to make it right, so I tried to speak to Kyle, but there was so much chaos between her and Brandi. Then the other girls joined in and at that point, I was frustrated and honestly wasn’t feeling well. I just wanted everyone to let me go home! This drama may have been about me at first, but it definitely ended up being about those two and whatever residual animosity they had towards one another from the past.


On the following day, my pain got even worse, so I spent the whole day getting tests done at the doctor’s. Next evening, I was admitted to the hospital. In my last blog post, I mentioned that I had been struggling with bronchitis and pneumonia for weeks. Well, the doctor said I had a fractured rib, ruptured disc, and hiatal hernia, which was caused by the increased pressure from coughing. No wonder I was in so much pain before poker night! I was in the hospital for nine days. But I'm happy to announce that I’m currently healthy and well!
Even though my family and I are going through some tough times right now, I feel stronger than ever because I need to and want to be there for Monty, my daughters, and son. All you moms out there know, we don’t get days off! Although it seems like I have a lot going on, that’s exactly what I love about my life! Planning my daughter’s wedding is the most beautiful thing I’ve ever done. I can’t believe my babies are all grown up, and I could not be more proud. Taking care of Monty has been bittersweet--it’s so painful to see my best friend slipping away, but at the same time, our relationship is stronger than ever. We’re treasuring every moment we have together. Don’t mistake my sadness for weakness. If I were not strong in my sobriety today, I could never do the things I’m doing. Thank you to those who have shared their kind words and support!
Speaking of family, my favorite part of the episode was seeing Yolanda with her son. Oh my goodness, I really related to them, because I’m going through the same thing with my son, Chad. Family dynamics change, and it does get lonely for both Chad and me now that our girls have left the nest. But this is also a special bonding time for us--yes, he’s totally going to have to hang out with his mom more, which both of us don't seem to mind at all! 
XO Kim
