Kim and the Roar of the Lion

Kim wonders if she should start acting again -- and if Carlton really did cast that spell on Joyce.

Hi Everyone! Happy Monday! It's so fun to be able to look back at some of these experiences.

The Hollywood Collectors Show was such a great day. I had so much fun. It is such a privilege for me to be able to connect with all of the people who have been supporters of my acting career since the beginning. They have watched me grow from a little girl to the person I am today. From Nanny and The Professor, Hello Larry, Escape to Witch Mountain, Tuff Turf, and now to RHOBH! Some of them feel as if they know me and being on a show like this has really given my fans a glimpse into what my life is really like.

It’s a really special feeling to know that after all these years people still respect me for what I am first and foremost -- an actress. I feel so loved and I honestly can say I feel a love for them as well.

Seeing Jimmy McNichol was awesome. I just couldn't believe when he walked over. He was one of my teen crushes. Jimmy’s sister, Kristy, and I worked together in the past. We performed on the Michael Landon Telethons and even put a music group together with our sisters. Yes, don't laugh too hard but we all used to sing together. We also attended the same school that was meant for kids with careers. However we didn’t attend regularly because of work. On one particular day at school I happened to see Jimmy there and he grabbed my butt! I couldn't have been more than 15, and this was of course the first time anyone had ever done this to me. So naturally I went home and put it in my journal. It was supposed to be private. But you know how sisters can be. Kyle dug it out and shared it with the whole family. . .For the last 35 years! I have never been able to escape The Roar of the Lion!

Over the years I've had the most amazing gifts from my fans that come not only from their hearts but hold so much sentimental value. Like my turtle pin! This was her grandmother's! Did you see how her mother cried when her daughter gave me the pin? It was so touching. Also, when the lady wanted me to hold Elias, the baby puppy. She's been very sick with cancer and Elias has been with her the whole time and means the world to her. The fact that she wanted ME to hold him and to take a picture was really touching. It is moments like this that make me so grateful for my job. From real babies to puppies to turtle pins, and so many others. You have no idea some of the very strange requests I've gotten. But I have to say I absolutely love being a part of these experiences! As I have shared before when people say to me, "You don't know what you've done for my life," I say back "You don't know what you've done for mine!" It's such a special feeling that I am so grateful for. I have the best fans in the world.

Watching my sister get ready to go film Days of Our Lives and hearing some of the things she was saying brought back a lot of memories for me, such as rehearsing scripts with my mom and sisters when we were growing up. Also hearing her describe moments when she turns on the TV and sees herself and she says to her children, "Look there's mommy. Do you want to watch?" and her kids are like, "Nah, pass the potatoes!"

Just watching Kyle hold that script while going over lines I could tell she was quite excited to get back work. It was also so nice to see my sister on a stage again. She looked so pretty, a little bit nervous, but also confident at the same time. I’m not going to lie, it kind of made me feel like I want to get back to work. I guess it's like Kyle said, "We've been acting our whole lives. Somehow it just feels like second nature to us." I loved watching this. I think my sister did a great job!

I love the mural on Yolanda's wall. I thought it was so nice of her to invite everyone over to make something special for Gigi to take with her on her new journey and for her new home. I know I tried to give Kimberly as many homey touches in her dorm room as possible so she wouldn’t get homesick.

In watching the beautiful afternoon at Yolanda's it just seemed like everyone was having a good time. However, no matter what Carlton just doesn't seem to click with my sister and Joyce. When Joyce came to meet me the next day at Pilates Plus, Joyce told my friend Kristi and I that Carlton had put a spell on her. She said she told Carlton she doesn't believe in spells and Carlton said just wait to go home tonight and see what happens.

When she got home her husband was really sick! To me it sounds like maybe Carlton did put a spell on Joyce and her husband. I don't know much about Wicca but I do know if someone said something like that to me and then my husband got sick I would be spooked! I don't have a problem with Carlton, nor do I want one. We have gotten along from the beginning and I would like to keep it that way. In fact, I was shocked to hear that she had said that because I had never seen that side of her. It did not seem like the Carlton I have known. In any case I try and stay in a very spiritual world over here. . .where we don’t case spells!

Till next week,

Kim

Lisa R Reflects on That Bittersweet Episode

Lisa Rinna discusses the difficulties of becoming the caretaker for her parents and missing Kyle's BBQ.

What an emotional and bittersweet episode for me! My family means so much to me and to recently come to the realization that we are at the point in our lives where I am now the caretaker, rather than my mom and dad, is a hard one. Let me give you a little backstory on my dear parents, Frank and Lois. . .

Last November, my mom had a stroke and was in the hospital for three weeks, followed by outpatient care. This came as a devastating shock for us because my mom has always been in good health, incredibly vibrant and full of life since she worked and played tennis up until the day she had her stroke at 85. So, for her to not remember anything or speak incoherently was really life changing for everyone. My dad, being 92 years old himself, is on oxygen full-time and has relied on my mom to take care of him for some years now. With both of them needing round-the-clock care, my sister and I were faced with the very difficult decision of what to do. Hearing my dad tell us that "Where I am now isn't home. It's only where I sleeps at night," still brings tears to my eyes. How heartbreaking to know he feels this way. I realize there are many of you out there that can also relate to these difficult decisions we have to make as our parents age and their health fails them.

My mom made it very clear that she didn't want someone else living in their house with them, so the decision was made to move into the assisted care facility they live in now. In hopes of mom getting better, we didn't put the house up for sale right away, but as time passed, we realized the days of mom and dad being able to live in their own home were gone, and we put the house on the market this past summer. The house sold quickly, which is what took me up there to collect my childhood items and memories. Standing in our empty home, holding my mom as we both cried while reminiscing about old artwork brought back a flood of old memories I hadn't thought of for many, many years. And, of course, driving around Medford with my girls, saying goodbye to the neighborhood I grew up in was so bittersweet. As I mentioned on the show, I never quite felt like I belonged in the Medford community, but I am so incredibly grateful for the time I spent there because it's hometown charm is what made me who I am today and I wouldn't change a second of it. I really do have wonderful memories full of BBQs and friends and of course, colorful Jell-O salads thanks to my mom!

As you can see, my two girls are a hoot. They are unfiltered and say what's on their mind at any given moment. (I have no idea where they get this from!!!) I just love them for it AND am tortured by it at the same time. It meant the world to have them up there with me during this emotional time. HH was up in Vancouver filming his new show Rush, which meant he couldn't be there, so the comfort of my girls by my side was everything. I think having Delilah and Amelia with me to see and experience this circle of life is an important part of growing up.

I'm also glad you got to see some of the amazing watercolor paintings my dad has painted over the years. Their beauty has brought so many people so much joy and I'm happy that they're hanging up for people to keep on enjoying. He is an exceptional artist, and it's just heartbreaking to know that his shaky hands and failing health won't allow him to continue doing what he loves. He's a special man and I love him dearly.

It is so sad to say goodbye, but I will always have the memories and I feel so lucky to still have my parents only a quick flight and phone call away. I cherish the time I get to spend with them. They are my everything.

Alright, let's talk about what the other girls were up to while I was gone! First of all, I loved the lunch I had with Yolanda and Eileen before I left for Oregon. Such a small world to watch the two of them discuss how they were connected through their kids before actually meeting each other. And then to see Yolanda call Eileen to invite her to Kyle's BBQ made me so happy. I just knew the girls would love her! Oh, and Eileen is now $100 richer because she won that bet Brandi made with her at Kyle's house. Not only was I the original Billie Reed, but I created Billie on Days of Our Lives! Time to pay up, Brandi!

The BBQ at Kyle's house looked so beautiful and fun, I'm really sad to have missed it. Man, is she lucky to have her Ladysitter, Justin. I am not even kidding when I say that I want to steal him away from her. He is fabulous with helping Kyle and I know she knows how lucky she is to have him in her life!

Just when you think you couldn’t love Lisa V's adorable zoo any more than you already do, she introduces you to her gorgeous gay swans, Hanky and Panky. How much more fabulous can you get?

I think it's interesting to see Brandi trying to get some kind of closure with Lisa V. We have to remember that there are consequences to our actions with others. Sometimes we can move on quickly, other times it takes longer and sometimes not at all.

I hope you're all ready for a wonderful and stress free holiday. Take this time to enjoy your family and friends and I will see you back here next week! Sending blessings and love to you and your families!

Xo, LR
