Brandi's Warning and Dishonesty

Joyce thinks her Spanglish complicated the "hair incident" but blames Brandi for stirring the pot with Lisa.

Hola Mis Amores! I hope you all had a beautiful week and that this coming Thanksgiving is a gorgeous one for you all your loved ones. I'm thankful this year, as I am each year, for being so blessed. I thank God for my family, for our health, and for giving us yet another year to share the happiness.

There was a lot going on before the Cirque classes that you don't see, and a lot of things Brandi had said that made me wonder what sort of a friend she was to people (particularly with how she was acting to Kim and Kyle). Just know that by the time we got to the circus, I was thinking I had to be careful with her, and I felt that I could not trust her.

Let's move on to what you saw in this week's episode. . .

Seeing Yolanda with her gorgeous daughters is so beautiful! It makes me a bit homesick. I miss my mommy all the time. When I was growing up in Puerto Rico, I used to love taking my mommy's things and playing dress up.

Ken's surprise to Lisa was priceless! I've met the gorgeous puppy, and he's just too sweet for words. Although I admit I'm in love with the sexy Giggy. He's a total superstar.

My husband and I really bonded with Kyle and Mauricio over dinner. They poured their heart out and trusted us with their feelings. They are a fun and loving couple, and it's sad they have been going through so much.

I thought Kim was very sweet to organize the circus school for all of us.

Even though Kim repeats herself all the time (I do the same LOL), at the time I did think Yolanda made her feel bad by interrupting her little speech.

Some of our exercises at the circus were quite hard. I've always loved circus performers, but now I have a whole newfound respect for them. We had a lot of fun, and I'm thankful to Kim for that.

After the Circus we all went to the beautiful Rooftop at The Thompson Hotel. I was starving after our circus training.

When Kyle, Brandi, and Lisa were finished with their conversation -- in which I didn't voice an opinion because I think that was their personal drama and I wasn't filled in on what was "happening" -- I asked Lisa if we could speak "privately" because, as I said in the episode, not everything has to be a group thing. I believe that if you have something to say about someone, you should tell them to their face, not gossip and talk to everyone about it except the person in question.

I know that everything seems like it came out of nowhere, so I will give you all the "in" on what happened before the rooftop.

After Carlton's lunch at her house, Brandi called me on my cell. After a bit of very nice small talk, she told me she thought Lisa had been very rude to me at Carlton's during the house tour as Lisa was dismissive of me as I tried to fix her hair. Brandi then said that even though she "loved" her, Lisa was the type of person that can give criticism but can’t take it and that I should beware of this. At the time, I didn't know what to think of her call; was she genuinely calling to "check on me" or was she trying to stir the pot and make me dislike Lisa? I was more inclined towards the latter, given that on that exact same day I saw her act poorly towards both Kyle and Lisa, I felt that she was just trying to stir things up.

I didn't tell anyone about this conversation with Brandi because I didn't want to create any type of awareness to the silly hair incident, until a couple of days later over a beautiful lunch with Yolanda in Malibu. In my opinion, we were getting to know each other and I felt like I was bonding with Yolanda as we talked about how both of us grew up as very simple girls and then both modeled. I was very happy and was even talking to her about my mommy, which is my soft spot, when suddenly she says, "OK, this is boring. Let’s talk about what happened at Carlton's lunch". I was taken aback and didn't understand what exactly she was talking about until she told me that Brandi had called her to tell her Lisa had been very rude to me at Carlton's lunch. My response to Yolanda was, "Maybe Lisa was having a bad day or maybe she was on her period, because when I'm on my period I'm not exactly at my best."

Yolanda pushed for more details on what had happened, so I told her about the "silly" hair incident. After discussing this little "incident" with Yolanda and with Brandi, I felt I HAD to tell Lisa because I am not two-faced; I do not talk about someone with different people and not tell the person in question, which is why I needed to tell Lisa directly to her face.

I know that at the time Lisa was unfortunately trusting her BFF (Brandi) instead of the "new girl" and probably thought I was trying to create conflict. However, I think that everyone's true colors come out in time, and I believe that Lisa is the type of person that will appreciate a straight shooter and an honest person. I really didn't like how Brandi turned it around and tried to make it seem as if she was "having my back giving me a warning." WHAT EXACTLY WAS SHE WARNING ME ABOUT BY TALKING ABOUT HER BFF?

After watching the episode, I realize that I probably could have told Lisa just once or twice (including my reenacting of the incident LOL). I need to stop repeating myself so much; I do it all the time. It probably stems from the fact that I think in Spanish and have a terrible Spanglish going on, so I repeat myself until people let me know they understand what I'm trying to say. . .All of that combined with too much Latin passion!

Note to self: "Start trying to think in English!" LOL

Until next time. . .I send you all a big kiss! Happy Thanksgiving!

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 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!



P.S.  Here’s my Make*A*Wish YouTube video that I made in my kitchen.
