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

on Feb 17

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.
