Joyce Didn't Want a Pity Party

Joyce comments on her father's passing and why she wishes Kyle had kept it to herself.

Hola Mis Amores! As this week we celebrated Valentines Day; I want to thank you all for the cyber friendship and the support you've given me through this journey called Housewives.

I also want to take advantage of this platform to answer something lots of you have been asking. For those who've asked me on social media how I feel about the fact that Brandi uses every chance she can to try to disrespect me, all I can say is that she is a classless person who thinks everything she says is OK and funny. Apparently she has no friends to tell her that making racial remarks, backstabing all her fellow Housewives, making horrible remarks about other woman (Joanna Krupa and Kenya Moore), and talking crap in all the interviews that are meant to be about her book are not OK. . .Sorry Brandi! Your card is overplayed and you have zero comedic timing! You are not funny and since I learned to take things from the source. . .Knock yourself out and keep proving me right.

This week we begin with Carlton talking to Yolanda about how much she hates labeling and judging. Slightly crazy, since she's the first one to label everyone, and she's the first one to judge others simply for asking her questions. I don't know what she has been through in life, but at this point I feel sorry for her paranoia.

Kyle came to my house to tell me about the disaster dinner at Lisa's. Then she showed me something that mysteriously showed up in her computer and was slightly freaky. She was concerned about Carlton's negativity so I told Kyle she should talk to Carlton about it. I gave her some holy oil my mother sends me all the time so she could put it on and feel blessed.

At that point Brandi and I had no problems (or so I thought). That's why when Kyle told me she had invited her on my Puerto Rico trip I was fine with it. Had I known what she was planning and all the crap she was talking behind my back, I would've told her she was NOT invited.

Watching Brandi talk to Kim, yet again, was a bit frustrating. If she had such a strong, negative feelings about Lisa, and if she was so scared of her she should've spoken directly to her face instead of telling everyone over and over except the person in question -- especially considering the fact that she prides herself in being "honest." But we all know by now that's just her perception of herself, but that there is nothing honest about her.

Moving on to Gigi's goodbye party. . .It was such a beautiful party! I cried watching Gigi give her toast. I know she will do great in New York and I'm looking forward to seeing her bloom. Mohamed and Yolanda are rightfully proud of her, and I pray that when my two young boys reach her age they will be as well educated and gracious as Gigi.

During that time, I unfortunately had to cancel many events, but this one in particular I was very sad to cancel, as I really like Mohamed and Gigi is a total sweetheart.

But as you all now know; the reason I have been so MIA in the past few episodes is because I was going through a very difficult family moment. I was flying back and forth from Puerto Rico to be with my father in his final days, to be able to say goodbye and to grieve with my family.

The only person in our group that knew what was going on was Kyle, as she was the one I was closest to. I must say I was very upset and disappointed when she decided to tell the other girls, as I had asked her to not say anything to any of them.

I DID NOT want my father's death and my grieving to be a topic and I for sure didn't want a pity party from the other girls.

Initially I wanted to cancel the trip, but I won't go into further details as you will all see it in next week's episode.

Until then,
XO

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.
