Joyce: I Hope I Never Have to Use a Gun

Joyce shares the story behind her home invasion and explains how she feels about having a gun in the home.

Hola Mis Amores! I hope you all had a beautiful week. This week's episode was fun for me to watch.

At the beginning of the episode we see Carlton auditioning girls to work the pole at her party. If that's what you like, it's fine, though I frankly don't see how that is "empowering women."

I am not entirely pro-gun, and I was always against having one in the house until we had to experience a real scare. A couple of years ago, we lived in a home that was in a private, very "safe" Beverly Hills area -- or so I thought. On a Sunday night at 9 pm two guys were coming up to our home with ski masks and shot guns. It was frightening! I was lucky that my husband became my "King Kong" and larger than life, thumping his chest in front of the robbers, yelling "Get the f--- out of my house." My dog who is trained to attack, broke the window with her head. We always say that the robbers were probably more scared of the dog than anything else, and luckily they never entered the house.

After that we decided to get a gun to protect our babies, but until now, I had never been to a range to actually fire it. I've shot guns before for movie roles, but never a real gun. I was a bit nervous but between the instructor and my wonderful husband I felt very safe -- and I must say pretty cool. It was quite an experience.

Now that my husband installed an insane alarm system in our new home, I hope I will never have to use the gun. But I do want to feel protected, because if anyone was to mess with my babies that's the moment when I would become Lara Croft and do whatever needs to be done.

My husband and I always have fun together in everything we do. Some people call me crazy, but the reality is that I enjoy spending each second with him. He is not just my husband, he is my rock and my very best friend!

I really liked seeing Brandi fix things with her father, because life is so short that we can't waste time being upset with the people we love.

Kyle's family is beautiful and I love them! I admire the Shabbat tradition and no matter which faith you are of, there is nothing more wonderful than dedicating a certain day to spend time with your family and loved ones, absent of TV, phone, and other interruptions. Sophia is growing into an amazing young woman and her bat mitzvah was simply perfection.

I love doing girls' get-togethers and organizing fun events for my friends. Even though Brandi and I had been on a very rocky road, I didn't want to exclude her -- so I decided to invite all the ladies to a self-defense class. It was nice to finally come together and all get along, leaving behind all the petty drama.

Sadly, almost all the ladies have been through crazy home invasion experiences, so I wanted them to learn some key points, so they know that you don't necessarily need a gun to protect yourself. Lars is super nice and and a very patient trainer. Both Lars and Tamara made it a great day for the girls. I don't believe in physical confrontation, and I think its not very ladylike but if anyone messes with me, it's on. After all, I did grow up with a brother who taught me how to defend myself and fight.

It was so cute to see Kim and Kyle in the ring. We all had such a laugh! I LOVED IT!

Until next time...

I send you all a big kiss.

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
