Happy Monday! Let's get started! I was so excited to go to Puerto Rico. I felt like I hadn't been on a vacation in years and I was ready to relax and spend time with my friends.
Arriving at the airport my heart went out to Joyce as she spoke of her father. I don't know if I would have been able to pull it together the way she did. However I know everyone reacts to pain differently and hers was to keep going.
Puerto Rico is so lovely! Waking up in the morning and looking out at
the ocean was amazing! The beach was so pretty and everyone was off to
having a great time -- until Yolanda and Lisa went to have a talk.
One thing led to another and the next thing I know Brandi and I are sitting there and she tells me that when that when she was leaving for Palm Springs, Lisa had put the tabloid in her bag and told her she had to bring it. I was so upset hearing about this! I have watched my sister cry over and over about this, and it has also caused a lot of stress for her kids. It is all mean people and lies! I couldn't believe that Lisa would do this! If I hadn't heard it from Brandi I would have never believed it. So I told her, "You need to tell my sister!" However, Brandi wanted to wait until the time was right. But things had escalated and she needed to tell her now, so she did. Once again having to see that hurt look in my sisters face broke my heart. She wants to believe Lisa is her friend so much but it's just not the case and Lisa continues to let her down. Maurice had no idea what was going on so I filled him in on what I had heard.
We're so tired of hearing and seeing you, please retire from the show. You are such a mean girl now.
oh man, you are cra cra. SO UNBELIEVABLY rude to Ken and Lisa. Who, BTW, RSVP'd to a back yard picnic, AND SENT A GIFT- yet you still berate them publicly - and If I were Ken, I would have thrown your past behavior in your face too... you are in no position to chastise anyone. at all. pull yourself together and run along to the next Former Stars Convention.
You need to apologize to Ken and Lisa. You need to watch the show and see how stupid you sound. Girl many shows you never showed up for parties, get togethers ect. and you fuss with Ken and Lisa for not showing up at your daughters graduation party. They RSVP and said they could not make it. Wow.... Please calm down.
Kim, I don't blame you for going off on Ken! He said some very mean remarks to you and he and Lisa like to belittle and talk down to you at every turn! I don't know how you took it for so long! I don't like Brandi but I believe her about Lisa b/c Lisa is so not a friend to Kyle. Kyle should stop asking her about the magazine incident b/c she has her answer... Lisa would not have run away if she wasn't guilty! She is not Kyle's friend and has proven that over and over again.
Kim, did you miss the part about gossip being character assassination? If you didn't spout off about being in 'recovery' I'd have absolutely no idea you were. Your actions speak the opposite, so don't act all noble about making a half hearted apology...we strive to be an example if we're in recovery, and you'd best be served to get off the TV and work on yourself.
All I could think of is how proud your daughter must be that her mother yelled at Ken and attacked Lisa over graduation Remember it is not what you say but what you do in life that counts
What you could and should have said/done when this all hit the fan is..... Stop it! Stop, this isn't the place or the time or anyone else's business but Lisa's and Kyles'! You were so wrong!
Lisa's reaction, yes quite odd. She is no Bobby Fisher…Fisher would have anticipated an aggressive move. As far as Brandi-she is not an innocent lamb. No one can force you to say something you do not want to say.
Rich people and their gossip…….poor poor Lisa…….
Kim's poor daughter...she is clearly not going to fit in that room...hopefully she will donate all those things she doesn't need. Did they not visit the college/dorms before hand?
You need to apologize to Ken and Lisa.
Keep your nose out of it.
I was beginning to like you until you started attacking Ken and Lisa.
They run charities and business's they sent a gift for your daughter for her graduation and explained PRIOR they would not be attending.
Then you jump on the attack wagon just to be a part of the drama in Puerto Rico
Now I am seeing you are caddy and part of mob mentality.
Why didt you not ask why Brandi had the tabloids
Goodness you really are a drama queen. All of sudden you are Brandis friend. Nothing but a hypocrite. How dare you yell at Ken. You weren't there. You owe Ken and Lisa both an apology.
Kim, you have become very self-righteous and the true "mean girl" of the group. What a disappointment!!!
Kim, go away! You're lucky these people even gave you a second chance. You were pretty horrible to everyone. When someone sends "regrets" you can't be made at them!!! Unlike YOU, they have a business to run and a job to do. Get over it!
For the most part I did like you and felt you really worked hard on your issues however this season you have been so mean and rude.
You are angry with Lisa and Ken for missing your daughter's Graduation party when they RSVP regrets and sent a gift? Yet you missed their daughters wedding to ?move"? and never even sent your RSVP? That is very rude and unacceptable socially. Also to continue to bring it up after someone acknowledge your daughter with a gift and their regret is just nasty.
I don;t believe you or Brandi, you're jealous of Lisa and trying to make her look bad.
Kim says in an episode the normal person watching wouldnt know what lisa is doing.
Kim you are one of the biggest morons I've seen. Are you trying to tell me you are smarter than the average person? Umm...ok
Kim, you are just too goofy and it could lead some people to think you're drinking again. You can be funny and I believe your sober but you don't always make sense. You need to apologize to Ken. That was just plain nasty and I am trying to figure out why? If he tried to let you know how many times you were late or never showed when you were drinking than face up to it instead of being mad. You have become the real sad sack of this show.
Kim, I wish you well in your career and hope you have a real come back soon. but attacking people just to have something to say on the show or remain relevant is not nice.
You should've stayed out of the whole incident regarding the tabloids in the suitcase thing. It's obvious that you got involved because you don't like Lisa and you not only want to hurt her, but want to hurt Ken now. Looks like you think they'll accept your apology, because at the end of the day as you say "I care about Lisa!" I don't think they agree with the way in which you show people you "care" for them, or your immature social skills, a lot of the times you feel you are being dismissed, they are ignoring you out of kindness...
Thoughts on Kim: She looked awesome in her swim suit! She has every right to stand up for her sister & brother in-law, but she needs to be careful about being played. Unfortunately, her feelings of being dismissed/unimportant by Ken & Lisa (& most cast members) make her more defensive & reactive to anything they say & do (I cringed to hearing her blast Ken). She is actually pretty down to earth & funny in her comments. Just ease up on taking everyone to task every time you feel slighted. Let your sobriety & credibility grow.
After an entire week I decided to read your post. Not sure of your so called apology to Ken and/or Lisa about your extremely Rude outburst. You truly seem to lack in common decency when interacting within a group with whom you disagree with. The manner and verbiage alone is enough to make me want to see you exit from the show. For shame.
Spot on Kim! Lisa was vague on her answer and was definitely not vehement about denying it. If she was innocent she would have confronted Brandi about her making it up. As much as I love Ken and admire his loyalty toward his wife this is one instance where he does NOT know what happened so he should have kept quiet. On the other hand I do know he felt Lisa was being attacked and he felt it was necessary to stand up for her. Yes, the name calling of Ken was not necessary but you said it in the heat of the moment and in wanting Lisa to answer the question! Good for you for trying to get to the bottom of it. You have come along way Kim and are looking great! I am glad you and Kyle have repaired your relationship and I wish you the best!
I must say that I am surprised to see so many people ganging up on Kim because she called Ken a "stubborn old man" and because she told Mauricio about the alleged magazine incident. You all are acting like she reached out and stabbed someone in the eye with a fork or something.
I enjoy Ken on the show and think that he is a respectable husband, but he IS a stubborn old man! That's just the truth, and it's really not even an "insult." Regardless, I think a more appropriate comment in the context of this argument would have been to call Ken a "liar." Ken and Lisa were lying about something that happened...intelligent people do not normally back-track and trip up on their comments when they are telling the truth. And Ken didn't step in when Lisa was getting "ganged up on," but rather, he chimed in when Lisa was stumbling over her story. He was trying to help her save face-which is what he should have done as her husband-but that doesn't mean that Kim was wrong for calling him out on it.
Furthermore, how could anyone expect Kim to not inform Mauricio about this magazine fiasco??? This is her BROTHER-IN-LAW...they've been family for years! Are you honestly suggesting that it wasn't her "business" and that she should have sat there in silence while Kyle and Mauricio were attempting to discover the truth about the tabloids? Lisa and Ken refused to give Kyle a straight answer. Kim finally said something because she was sick of hearing the run-around. She stood up for her sister and brother-in-law. For all of you to chastise Kim for calling Ken a "stubborn old man" but not chastise Ken for questioning Kim's sobriety is nonsensical. Even Lisa chastised Ken for his comment.
I dia agree... If everyone ganged up on me like that, I would have said screw all of you and just left. Since Kyle got an answer at the beach and Yolanda said she spoke to Lisa before dinner the only one left was Brandi that needed to "clear the air" she could have done it one on one, either before dinner or after. There's no reason Kim should have even got into it. Kim seems like she has mental issues, even when she is doing her side interviews, she repeats the same thing over and over. Yes Kens remarks were rude, but she was very rude also. She seems out in left field. Luck to Kim and being sober. I'm glad she has stuck to it. But she is still a mean girl!!!
@ChristyLC Perfect! You said it all for me too! Thank you!
@Barbarajean She really does. I don't why no one is even mentioning her screaming at Ken at the table...
@getalife-really I think she has a serious case of stunted growth. She may forever be stuck in junior-high-school-mean-girl-hell. She smiles not with her eyes but with her unattended mouth.
@cdmua True colors
@lisa.dawson.3720 Ew! Rotten fish!
@lisa.dawson.3720 It might be herring ? !
@joysnote Very well said, kim keeps bringing it up every time she gets, also Yolanda is mad at Lisa for not going to her daughter's painting party even though Lisa called and said she was tied up at a meeting, Yolanda wont let it go..... she has become the mean girl, Brandi's mouth, Brandi has been feeding them lies about Lisa and yet Yolanda forgot that Kim and Kyle called her a lair to her face last reunion was that ever resolved?
@joysnote I wish I could "like" this comment twice or even ten times!
@karengo LOL , good point ...
@fiesta OMG...you hit the nail on the head!!
@sholly Spot on Kim???? Ken didn't know what happened so he should of stayed out of it???? Well Kim didn't see it either, she went on Brandi's words....
Ken was being a gentlemen and a husband, sticking up for his wife when the pack of wolves were attacking (on Brandi's words)!!!
@sholly Is their relationship repaired? they always bond when attacking someone else!
@sholly Lisa already answered the question - several times. No one was satisfied with her answer.
@sholly Yet, now we see her admitting she owes him an apology, but saying she won't give him one. If Kim had "tried to get to the bottom of it" she would have asked Yolanda what she saw during the supposed incident, and asked Branki why she had the rag mag sitting on her coffee table in the first place?
@legalese i don't think Lisa and Ken refused to give Kyle a straight answer. she already said No at the beach but kyle didn't believe her right away...and come on, in a situation like this you can't just say "No" and call it a day. and every time lisa started to give her version, Brandi would interrupt and say "no" with that stupid face.
and Ken didn't say the comment to kim to hurt anyone, he asked that to lisa and i think it was an honest question.
I am so glad to see that someone reads it like I do. I guess Kim would not have been so made at Ken if he weren't so hypocritical. This is the same man who judged Mauricio and Paul for taking their wives side and just recently Joyce's husband, but when it comes to he and Lisa it's different , he protected Brandi for every detestable thing she said and that wasn't his wife. And yes they have continually thrown barbs at Kim for being the ex-alcoholic and yes Lisa has been quite dismissive of Kim when she interjects in to some conversations.
@legalese Sounds like they are a perfect match.
@legalese It wasn't her business since she wasnt there and only had Brandi's word for what transpired. That is as good as a rubber crutch so Kim should have kept her mouth shut instead of instigating. There are other ways to support her sister and BIL than substantiating Brandi's lies with her own.
@legalese Kim only spoke because she is trying to remain relevant. I think they would fire her if it wasn't for Kyle.
Really to shows dedicated to her dog?
@legalese I respectfully disagree. No one has the right to tell someone to "shut their G-damn mouth". That to me was over the top rude and obnoxious. Who does she think she is?
@legalese Everyone looks at things diferrently; I think Kim has been horribly rude to Lisa and Ken, and keeps trying to start fights with them. As far as her telling Mauricio the story, it was all second hand information, so when he asked her if it was true, she should have admitted that she wasn't there.
