Carlton and Brandi's Maximum Hypocrisy

Joyce explains her Hawaiian outfit and what she really thinks of hugging Brandi and "agreeing to disagree."

Hola Mis Amores! I hope you all had a beautiful week.

This week's episode was quite interesting for me to watch as I discovered hypocrisy at its maximum exposition.

At the beginning of the episode it was interesting to see Carlton and Brandi in their element at the pole dancing. I can understand why they like each other so much.

What I can't understand is how in the world was Carlton so offended that my husband joked about having a naked room when our babies grow up -- yet this is pretty much her main storyline? How was she so offended when I spoke about my husband's manhood, yet she does the exact same thing? I wonder if she is getting inspired by the very same things she hates about me and decides to do them? Too much double standard, especially for someone who claims to be so spiritual and to love women.

Kimberly's graduation party was simply stunning. I spoke a lot with Kim about it, and I know how much work and love she put into it. That's why when she told me to dress for the theme (Hawaiian) I decided to put a little effort into it for her. So Carlton, save your opinions on my wardrobe because I for sure DO NOT need any fashion advice from you. And as always, you smile to my face and then talk crap in your confessionals.

Kimberly is a very sweet girl and it was a pleasure to be included in her cerebration.

I thought it was very tacky for Carlton and Brandi to show up slightly drunk, eat a burger at the curve before even greeting the host, and for Carlton to go fishing for booze when she knows Kim is a recovering alcoholic. (You can drink in front of her -- she is strong and can handle it. But you don't go to her home to ask for alcohol.) Frankly it was good they left because the rest of the night was fantastic! The collage Kim made for Kimberly was very touching.

The day Lisa called me to ask me if I could come participate in her charity I was overwhelmed. That day I had the photoshoot for the Friend Movement campaign, I was hosting the Friend Movement concert and I had to leave early from the concert to run to my Siberia premiere party at my home. This is the same concert LeAnn Rimes headlined. That's why many think we know each other but the reality is we have never met. That night she was closing the show and by the time I left she hadn't arrived. Thank God, it all turned out great. The concert and the premiere party were a success and we had lot's of fun -- our last guest left our home at around 4 am. Therefore the next morning at Lisa's I was a bit tired, but I didn't want to miss it and wanted to support Lisa's cause.

Brandi was voicing that she believes the difference between her and I is that I settled with my husband. If settling is finding the love of your life, a man who loves you and respects you, a man who will stand with you through thick and thin, a man who makes you feel like a queen every day, a man you love to see when you wake up, a man you love to share your life with. . . I could go on and on. If that's settling than I can happily say that I settled and I would do it all over again.

I believe in this week's episode you can see the real difference between Brandi and I: I am happy and I love life. After our conversation, the moment she apologized I really thought we could have a clean slate and move forward. I truly believe in forgiveness and know it is a very liberating way to live life, but sadly it seems I was fooled by Brandi. Her true colors came out.

I was shocked to see that after I hugged her and she hugged me back, she goes on to say in her confessional: "Don't touch me. Ewww, don't come near me." On top of it, she then says we can agree to disagree. This was not about a disagreement, you asked for forgiveness and said you are sorry. But perhaps you don't know what a real sorry means.

Before meeting her, like many others, I thought she was an honest girl that "says it like it is." But this is her character: a true hypocrite. I never want to hear anyone talk about how "honest" Brandi is because she has proven to be the TOTAL OPPOSITE!

Something I did love was to see how Kyle and Lisa were connecting and playing around in the pool. I hope they can one day go back to the fun loving friendship they had.

Thanks for reading and for your comments. Until next time. . .

Brandi: You Can't Confirm What Didn't Happen

Brandi questions some of the ladies' motives, plus gives an interesting update on her relationship with LeAnn. 

Hey, My Bravoistas!

I’m in my American Airlines' seat 36 hours later, flying back home from NYC, thankful to be on a safe path home. My prayers go out to the families and loved ones of the downed German airliner in the French Alps this morning. I cannot imagine the pain being experienced by these families at this moment, which shockingly has led me to add a new person into my flight prayer today...my children’s stepmom. Don’t get me wrong--not everything is yet copasetic, but my children love her, so she is now in the “flight prayer,” differences aside. Now on a happier RHOBH note, last night’s WWHL with Andy was sooooo fun! No drama for once!

NEWS FLASH! Please watch for my new Sonoma County Chardonnay “Unfiltered Blonde,” to launch in April!

As I look over this past season, all I can say is it’s been an odd one. There were so many fun moments that got lost in the drama and so many weeks of fun you never saw at all. I wish you had, but I'm not in control of everything we get to see. I’d like to remember having fun with Kim “stalking” my now boyfriend J.R. That was such a crazy fun girls' night, Lisa R. being chased by killer bees, Yolanda and her Facetime confusion and meeting her family for the second time this--time in Holland, the Foster Foundation Extravaganza, “singing” at Lisa V.’s birthday party, and Kyle pretending to be a caring sister and owning yachts and planes…haha.
Ok, I’ll behave.

Here we are at the last episode of the season, yet, it seems most are still stuck in the beginning. I wish we weren’t, and I would dearly like to leave “Poker Night” behind. However, one person continues to make it the focal point of every interaction from when it happened and far into the three-part reunion.

This episode opens with Rinna tearing down a swing set, but her home interviews are still about what she perceives as Kim’s issues to be, not the actual touching moment of what the swing set tear-down symbolizes or her own family (I can't wait for her daughters to write their Brooke Shields-style memoir when they are age appropriate). LR says she feels sorry for Kim and cares about Kim and wishes Kim well. The truth is a lot less pretty. Some people have been attacking Kim’s sobriety online this week, but we won’t name names. BTW, Kim is sober and not online. She is busy caring for serious ill family members and driving back and forth to doctors and hospitals and being strong for her family.

Next we see Nicky Hilton’s book signing--sister Paris and mom Kathy Hilton are there. Looks like a great party and congrats to Nicky on her style book. Camille looks gorgeous as usual. Kyle angrily flips her hair, because Kim was wearing a shirt that she carries at “her” shop, but didn’t buy it there...whatever. Then Kyle whispers about her sister Kim to Lisa V. and Camille.
Kyle then tells them she is confused and impatient that Kim hasn’t confronted me over her third-hand Lisa R. gossip. She states Kim WILL be hurt and broken hearted over what “I” said… Kyle seems way too overy excited about that happening, which I find kind creepy. Why would anyone WANT their sister to be hurt or in pain?!

The preparations for Adrienne’s party are in full swing next. Lisa V. is fretting it, Kim is casually discussing the intervention GOSSIP with her makeup artist before the party, I’m getting ready and waiting for my friends and my date.

Adrienne’s party is the big finale of our journey this year. Everyone is there, and Adrienne always excels at events. So here we go. First off, my mind was not on the party at all. My father was recently hospitalized, and I didn’t leave his side for two weeks. It was very serious, but I had to return home to my boys. He was still not conscious, but I needed to get home to run my household--a party was the last place I wanted to be, but I had promised. That’s why I decided to bring the few people that I felt I could depend on in that moment. My friends and J.R. have been there for me during my father’s health scare and over more then a month of hospitalization--that was and is what remains what’s important to me.

The party seems like it was fun for a lot of people who weren’t involved in Kyle and Lisa. R.’s drama. I wish I were one of them, but in a way I was. As much as Kyle relished telling Kim the hurtful gossip she heard from LR, what she wanted to happen didn’t happen. There was no argument between Kim and I. We were happy to see each other. We spoke easily. I was busy worrying about my Dad; she was busy with her family.

What we saw on the finale was an efficient Kim quietly confronting Lisa R., then leaving Lisa R.'s table somewhat amused. Lisa R. couldn’t confirm the veracity of her gossip, because I DIDN’T SAY IT. Thanks again to Bravo for showing the truth in a flashback last week.

So, Kim knew who was who and what was what. The entertainment of the night was provided by Lisa R. going radio silent while Kyle begged for corroboration on her dramatic intervention gossip. Watching Yolanda, Eileen, and Lisa V. urge Lisa R. to support Kyle and verify her hurtful gossip was almost amusing. You can't confirm what didn't happen, can you?

In the end, I left the party early. Why? Not because of a past friendship with Lisa V. It's not her that made me cry--I was crying for my father, my dad! I was in no place to be at a superficial party, discussing a superficial incident with a person who was clearly not a friend, not that night. I said I would show up, and I did. After that, I wanted to be with my real close friends and family. Since this party my dad came out of the ICU and after 2 entire months and after a long stressful time I want to thank Dr. Allen Morris and all the doctors and nurses at Mercy General Hospital of Sacramento for saving my dad's life yet agin for the second time in 15 years. He is doing much better and continuing his hope of a full recovery. I am so thankful to all the people who were there for me and continue to be here for my family and I.

THAT is what life’s about, being with the people who truly love and care about you and the feelings are reciprocated.

As you hear, at the end of the finale, I am wistful, yet, wiser, and I think in a stronger place. I love and loved being there for Kim and being Kim’s friend, and I love that she was, is, and has been here for me. Even more so, I'm grateful and blessed to have Yolanda in my life; she is no bullsh--. Even when suffering herself, she is still so selfless. Yo is very special to me, I love her, she gets me, we have fun together, and I value every moment we spend together. I always will. As for the rest, I hope to share laughs and fun again, maybe tears, but hopefully only joy.

Peace Out. (deuces MFs--JK)

XOXO,

B
