Joyce: Brandi Is Childish and Pathetic

Joyce stands by her claims that Brandi needs rehab, and doesn't understand where Yolanda's elitist attitude comes from.

Hola Mis Amores! First of all: THANK YOU!!!! Thank you so much for voting for me as the Loveliest Locks. It was very sweet, and I'm so honored to have been chosen by all of you -- as I do think all the ladies have amazing hair, especially my friend Kyle.

Your love and support through this journey has made everything worth it.

In this portion of the reunion. . .

While we are all part of a reality show that showcases the glamour, the sophistication, and the lives of the group of women in Beverly Hills; It shocks me to see the venom and the desperation of those who will do anything to sensationalize themselves for attention. Brandi continues to try to attack Lisa -- all while saying she loves her. I for sure NEVER want to have someone love me that way. Someone who in the same sentence says "I love you, but I could destroy you."

She has attacked my integrity, my marriage, my family, and everything about me (even my choice of dresses). It's childish and pathetic. YES, I called her out on needing rehab and I FIRMLY stand by it. She needs better friends that will tell her when she's taking things too far.

I FIRMLY believe she needs to STOP playing the victim card -- The "I'm a poor single mother card." It's unfortunate that she has people like Yolanda hindering her and making excuses for her poor or lack of behavior.

Like I told Yolanda, I do have sympathy for everyone going through a depression.But what I have zero tolerance for is someone using depression as an excuse to treat others poorly! Kindness is the language that even the deaf can hear.

I grew up with a poor single mother, a real hard working poor mother who had three jobs to put food on her children's table. I know first-hand what depression looks like, as my mother was extremely depressed. But as I said in the reunion -- not once did I see her use her depression or her circumstances in life as an excuse to treat others poorly or try to bring others down to her sadness. On the contrary; all I saw was a strong woman who worked very hard to give my brother and myself the best examples. She taught us that every job is honorable and that, no matter your circumstances in life, if you work hard you can achieve your goals.

Normally when someone is depressed, they have a hard time even getting out of bed. They aren't partying, drinking, shopping, traveling. . .all while trying to treat others like crap. So I'm sorry if Yolanda wants to make excuses for her "Dream Team" member, but I DO NOT have respect for Brandi playing the victim card.

There are mothers out there who struggle every day. Mothers who aren't as lucky as she is to be able to live a fortunate life in the top percentile of the world. She doesn't have to worry if tomorrow her children will be able to eat, have a good education, or healthcare. Perhaps if she wasn't so self-centered and if she devoted even a little bit of her time to charity, she would realize how blessed she is and she would thank God instead of playing the victim.

I've said on multiple occasions that coming in to the show I was pleasantly surprised with some of the ladies, as I thought I wouldn't like them solely based on what I had seen of them in the previous seasons. I honestly thought I would like Brandi and I thought I would not like Kyle. I have to say I had it totally wrong.

Someone who truly caught me off guard, as I thought I would have loved her, was Yolanda. I was convinced we would become quick friends.

The first day we met she gave me her number and I was so happy I called her right away the next morning to invite her to lunch. When we finally did lunch (on camera, mind you), she really surprised me as I was talking about my soft spot (my mother) I was teary eyed and she suddenly says: "This is boring, let's talk about what happened at Carlton's lunch" (referring to Lisa's HairGate incident). Apparently it was far more interesting for her to throw her friend under the bus with the new girl than to get to know the new girl.

Her husband David has been a true gentleman each time I've met him. I LOVE her kids, and I'm good friends with her ex-husband. I really don't understand where all the arrogance and the elitist behavior fits in. She tries to play the voice of reason, but it's very obvious that she is out to attack Lisa and excuse Brandi. During the entire Reunion she gave me her back, as she was mad at the fact that I defended Lisa. Originally I was going to sit next to Carlton, but I changed to be away from her. as I didn't want to deal with the negative energy. Had I known Yolanda would be so disrespectful and give me her back the entire time I would've rather dealt with Carlton's negative energy than Yolanda's arrogant behavior and her cutting me off every time I spoke.

Anyhow. . .It's only one more episode left until the journey is over. But I want you all to know that I will forever be grateful for the love and support you gave me.

God bless you all
xoxo

PS: Lots of you have asked me why I wasn't at the Lady Gaga video. I LOVE GAGA! I would have loved to participate in it. They shot two days and on both days I had previous engagements. On one day I had an engagement with my charity and that for me will always come first. On the other day, I had a cover shoot that had been scheduled for a long time. The crew was booked and the photographer was flying in town to do the shoot. As much as I would have loved to cancel it and go hang out with the AMAZING LADY GAGA, I didn't have the heart to tell them I was leaving them for the "bigger, better deal." Hopefully there is a next one.

P.P.S.: For all of those who I offended with the silly tagline, now you could all finally see that it wasn't my choice. Like I said the entire time and on tonight's reunion: my tagline choice was: "Beauty is only skin deep, it's what's in your heart that matters."

Kyle: Kim and I Will Never Agree on This Matter

Kyle clarifies the Kingsley issue and responds to Brandi's most recent accusation. 

I don't want to write this blog. I didn't even want to watch this reunion, to be honest. There. I said it. But here I go....
Let's just dive right into the text message from Lisa Rinna to Kim.
I was very shocked to hear about that text. There is no excuse for that. I believe Lisa R. knows that. I can understand Kim being upset about that. I am sure she was taken aback, as we all were when we heard it. However, I don't think Lisa Rinna is a dangerous person. She just made a really bad choice.


Now onto Amsterdam and the space cake talk. Brandi went after me in Amsterdam regarding the space cake, because she doesn't like me and wanted to deflect from her own behavior once again. This was her big chance to say something about me, calling me a hypocrite for not partaking in the space cake. I have said it before, and I will say it again: I NEVER said I haven't smoked pot. I HAVE. It's just not my thing. I have a lot more fun having a few margaritas. Kim knows that. I would have appreciated her chiming in there. Also, I have NOT eaten a pot brownie or a space cake ever, and my husband had warned me that it would not suit me well, knowing my personality. You cannot gauge exactly what you're ingesting, and it wouldn't be smart. I didn't want to have a bad experience and "freak out," so to speak. Brandi herself wasn't partaking, because of her own reasons (which had to do with her divorce, as she explained), so wouldn't that make her a hypocrite then? WHY did she care if I did or did not choose to? Because she wanted to jump at the chance to make me look bad, since her behavior and her drinking had been front and center. Her drinking was out there, because she puts it out there, and she has nobody to blame but herself. If I HAD chosen to eat a space cake, she would have jumped on that, too. Anything to divert from her own actions which she was comparing to ours. All of us may have a few drinks, but NONE of us behave like her when we drink.
I only address this because it was on television. Her opinion of me is completely irrelevant to me. I only cared, because I am a mother, and her trying to make me out to be something I am not is reckless, as is everything else she does.
Ok. Enough of that. She beat that non-event to death. I think we can move on now.

Now this is the hard part...Kim and I had not spoken since Nov 1st. We both knew the situation with my daughter, Alexia, and Kim's dog, Kingsley, was bound to come up at the reunion. We don't get to pick and choose what we want to talk about.
Alexia had spent the night at Kim's house on Halloween. The next morning, Kingsley bit her. While scary, at first it didn't seem that serious. However, what the first doctor failed to notice was that the tooth had pierced the bone and also broken it. Five days later, we found out that her bone was infected and she needed surgery to clean out the bone. Kim was upset, because I had posted pictures from the hospital. Like I said at the reunion, I NEVER said her dog bit Alexia. Never mentioned her OR her dog. TMZ ended up finding out that it was Kim's dog, and she blamed me, because I posted the pictures from the hospital. I did not do that to hurt my sister in any way or to "get Instagram followers," like she suggested. With all of my family coming and going at the hospital, people were bound to find out and talk.


We were all with Alexia at the hospital trying to distract her and have fun. As any mother would do. We were all trying to make the best out of a bad situation. We invited family and friends to visit and tried to keep her spirits up. In hindsight, I wish I hadn't posted that picture, but I certainly didn't mean to hurt Kim. She posted a picture when she was in the hospital this year. Yolanda and Camille have done so regularly. And where is her responsibility in all of this? However, I do feel bad about what it has led to. And I've told her that. I also felt terrible because I know she loves Kingsley, but I also love my child. It was a difficult time for all involved. I didn't blame Kim personally regarding the dog and was willing to drop it and move forward, yet she was too angry with me regarding the Instagram post to be able to do that.
I wish that since I was willing to let go of my anger regarding my daughter being bit and what she had to go through that she could have let go of being upset about the Instagram post. I HAVE to believe she knows I did NOT do that to hurt her.
For Kim to throw out that she would say something about Alexia ( like she did to Lisa R. regarding Harry ) nearly took my breath away. But her dog is off limits?
So there you have it.
I don't even know what to say or do anymore. Clearly, we will never agree on this matter. And now we have more issues to work through, like my hurt and anger over Kim threatening to say something about my child. I know she loves Alexia, and it was just her being angry and "in the moment," but it's going to take me some time to get past that. All I know is I am glad I don't have to relive all of this again on TV. Now I need to take a step back .
Hopefully, time will heal my relationship with Kim. Time and having an open and honest relationship.
It's been a very difficult season. That's for sure. Thank you all for watching.
XO,
Kyle

P.S
Some things I would like to clear up:

A) I NEVER asked for Kingsley to be put down. I love all animals and know how much Kim loves Kingsley. That was never part of our argument.

B) Brooke's wedding : Brooke did a small ceremony at my sister Kathy's house (part of it aired this season), so that Monty would be well enough to walk her down the aisle. The wedding we were referring to at the reunion is her actual "big wedding " coming up. And NO, I did not do anything "unspeakable" or "unforgivable" at the wedding at Kathy's house like Brandi has (once again) put out there. It was a beautiful, perfect day that Brandi Glanville is now trying to throw negativity on. She was NOT EVEN THERE. On top of everything else Brandi has done, she now wants to turn that beautiful day that my family celebrated into something to lie and gossip about. Shame on her.
