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: This Was Brandi's Master Plan

Kyle believes Brandi has purposefully been driving a wedge between her and her sister.

After dropping Alexia off at college, I wanted to distract myself by spending time with friends and laughing. I thought a day at a spa with the girls would be fun. All was good until the wine tasting! The wine tasting was an absolute mistake. The hotel was going to set up a day for us. I didn't know many of the details, except that we would have massages and be eating lunch there. Kim has always maintained that she is fine being around others drinking at social events. However, being put into a situation where we are supposed to be interacting, like a wine tasting where she couldn't even participate, felt awful. I never would have intentionally put Kim in that situation. In fact, I offered to leave but Kim insisted she was fine. We didn't stay long and got out of there.


I had been looking forward to poker night, because I really like Eileen and wanted to get to know her better. Besides, I had never played poker before and thought it would be fun to learn.

Eileen's home is lovely. Brandi's rude comments about Eileen's home were uncalled for. You would think after throwing the wine at Eileen she would be bending over backwards to be nice to her.

Almost from the moment we started playing poker, things were extremely uncomfortable. I could see Kim was "off" but wasn't quite sure how to handle the situation.
One thing that was very clear to me in watching this is that Brandi is not my friend. Never has been. I have tried to give her the benefit of the doubt but always kept her at arms' length. To see her pretending to be friends with me in the car ride to Eileen's and then turning on me made things abundantly clear to me. Brandi can't be a friend to anyone. Including my sister.


Brandi clearly has been driving a wedge between my sister and me, which seems to have been her master plan from the beginning.

Her comments about me always being jealous of Kim's career couldn't be further from the truth. That is not how we were raised. My mom always taught us that any success the three of had ( Kathy, Kim, and Kyle) was a "feather in all our caps."

As a child, you aren't thinking of your "career." In fact, often I would hate that I had to work, because I would be missing something like a friend's birthday party. Brandi pretending she knows us, our history, or anything about our relationship is hurtful and frustrating. She is a new person in our lives whom we have no history with. She makes these comments to be mean and cause Kim to question her relationship with me. Apparently it's working.

What Brandi was calling jealousy was actually concern. Perhaps Brandi always assuming everyone is jealous is her projecting.

I went to the bathroom and Kim followed me in. Brandi seems to not have even wanted Kim to come to the bathroom to talk to me.

I whispered for obvious reasons, but Kim directly talked about what was going on with her that night. Kim told me she had taken a pill because she had been in pain. I was disappointed but felt she was being more open than in the past. At the very least, it was a situation we could deal with, because she was communicating openly about what was happening. We hugged and left the bathroom, and I thought everything was OK between us. My sister has been under a lot of pressure taking care of her ex-husband, Monty. If she had slipped, it would have been understandable, and the fact that we had talked about it made me feel better. Next thing I know Kim says to me "thanks for doing that," says she is leaving, and is clearly upset with me.

Kim being mad at me made no sense, which made me more concerned for the situation and her well-being. I wanted to pull her away from everyone to speak privately but Brandi wasn't allowing us to, as though she somehow needed to "protect" my sister from me, when clearly my sister needed a loved one to make sure she was OK (which is why she followed me into the bathroom). Brandi was putting her arm up and blocking me from being able to talk to my sister. Many things are going through my head at this point: Concern for my sister and for our relationship that we have worked so hard on and the fear that a manageable (yet concerning) situation might spiral out of control, because one person seemed to be using it to her advantage in a dangerous way. 

I was extremely frustrated that this person, who is not family or anyone I consider close, is keeping me from my sister. She put her arm up to block me, and I first said, "Please don't do that." I then pushed her arm down to stop her from blocking me from Kim. As Kim was leaving and Brandi was walking out with her and blocking me, I pulled her arm back to stop her from keeping Kim and me apart.

It is very clear to me that Brandi takes advantage of Kim when she is at her most vulnerable and wants her to believe that she is the only one that cares or understands her.

Kyle Richards

I simply wanted to get to my sister out of concern. The last person I wanted Kim with was a drunk Brandi.

Watching Kim and Brandi talking outside it is very clear to me that Brandi takes advantage of Kim when she is at her most vulnerable and wants her to believe that she is the only one that cares or understands her. Brandi also is using my sister to look like she is taking care of Kim and distracting us from Brandi's own obvious issues.

This was the end of Brandi's and my "friendship." And the beginning of another bumpy road in Kim's and my relationship.

Until next week...
Thanks for watching.
XO,
Kyle
