Brandi Can Do No Wrong

Kyle couldn't believe Carlton wasn't offended by Brandi's comments.

This week we get a glimpse into Joyce's life with her family at home. Her boys are adorable, and her husband Michael couldn't be nicer! Mauricio and I immediately liked both of them when we first met at The Beverly Hills Chamber of Commerce party. They are both kind people who are very happy together. I love seeing that.

On our way to Carlton's for lunch, the girls and I discussed Lisa's faint on Dancing With The Stars. We all knew Lisa was fine and were joking like she would have with us if roles were reversed.

Lisa said in last week's blog that she had been plagued with health issues. Blood transfusions, anemia, brain scans, fainting spells, etc. I had NEVER heard this in all the time I have known Lisa. NEVER.

We arrived at Carlton's and I was immediately intrigued. It feels like a church when you step inside, between the architecture and so many crosses. I grew up Catholic and converted to Judaism and am very open about that. When I asked Carlton what religion she is, I was surprised she was so offended. She said in her interview that it's rude to ask someone their religion the first time you meet. A) It was the third time we met, not the first and B) I didn't ask that to be rude.

I am proud of my religion and would never be offended if someone asked me about it. After seeing all the crosses I was simply curious and had no clue she would be offended. It is very clear NOW that Carlton did not want to like me. I was clueless and actually liked her.

I had heard that Carlton was a Wiccan or "witch" and was curious what that meant. When she was talking about her "witches balls" in her garden, I decided to ask her. NOT a good idea. In an attempt to make conversation and get to know her better, I clearly pissed her off again.

Later, we all went to sit down for lunch. Carlton didn't want to sit at the head of the table and told me to. It felt awkward, that's why I made a joke. Plus, knowing some of these women, I knew it would be used as an opportunity to say something catty -- which is exactly what Lisa did.

The lunch was at first a bit awkward as none of us knew Carlton well. I was asking questions so all of us could get to know her better. She seemed quite interesting and I am a curious person by nature.

When Brandi said that Carlton was edgy and a "c---" I almost fell off my chair. I was thinking Carlton was going to say something back to her but it seems Brandi can do no wrong and EVERYTHING I do IS wrong.

Then Brandi dropped a bomb. I was seriously blindsided as we had been getting along and this clearly was not the place to bring up the tabloids that had been attacking my family. It had been causing all of us great pain and the last thing I wanted, once again, was to talk about it in this "arena." Brandi, Lisa, and Yolanda continued to talk about it. I sat there trying to keep a straight face with a lump in my throat. I knew I was under attack and didn't want to give them the satisfaction of hurting me.

Lisa in one breath will say, "Oh, it's all nonsense. You can't pay attention," then when Yolanda went to say something (once again), Lisa quickly jumped in saying, "Where there's smoke, there's fire." If you're my "friend," why would you say that to cast doubt in everyone's minds? For me, that was a pivotal moment in our relationship. They would say they didn't believe the lies but still wanted to bring them up and cast doubt. I needed support from these women at a time that was clearly difficult. I have never been the subject of tabloid lies before this, and I was clearly not equipped. I wanted to just brush it off and "act" like it was no big deal like everyone had been telling us to do, but I just could not. That's not who I am. We could not believe that there are people in the world that would lie to make money and try to hurt us. I left Carlton's house in tears and with a clearer understanding of who my friends are...

Brandi: Someone Poked the Wrong Bear

Brandi thinks Lisa Rinna shouldn't be surprised by Kim's reaction. 

Hello Bravo Peeps,

Tonight I’m finally home in L.A. with my family!
I can’t tell you how nice it is to just slow down for a while. My mind is on recipes and new kids' projects this week. When I catch up, I will for sure share a recipe.

Tonight’s episode starts with a really fun event created by Yolanda: a scavenger hunt. Not just any scavenger hunt, but a Beverly Hills scavenger hunt on Rodeo Drive. Well, hey, it’s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, so why not? I personally thought it was a welcome change and a chance to have some fun and share it with the fans. Despite Yo’s health, she is a really positive, uplifting spirit, and I’m thankful she brings fun to our group.

Yo hired experts to make sure we all had a great time and made thoughtful shirts to make everyone feel special. A brilliant move by Yo was having the teams chosen by the company, so no high school clique nonsense. The theme was team building, being positive, working together, and putting aside petty differences. As Yo said, “It was a bonding activity.”

Firstly, I think Yo’s idea was great and a success for those who participated wholeheartedly. I give a pass to Kim, who was still a trooper but was still experiencing some knee and hernia pain. Protecting your knees is serious if you have joint issues, and she was smart to pace herself as tendon injuries can last for months. The others? Well, you saw what I saw. Sadly, I saw a lot of negativity, complaining, petty, unnecessary jabs, and criticizing their own teammates for physical issues they can’t control. Quotes from one of our ladies: “I hate clues, I hate the game, I hate the whole thing.” She followed this by shooting the bird at Yo. Nice.

On the other hand, I had fun; I love the sun, games, clues, and getting outside. I’d love to participate in other games or lighthearted competitions on RHOBH. Also, how fun was it to see a healthy Camille? She looked great, was sweet, cheerful, and a good sport. Shoutout to Camille for beating cancer with such grace.

The prize for participating in the fun or awful day, depending on which Housewife we’re talking about, was a paid luxury trip to Amsterdam! Some of us had also accepted an invitation to David Foster's charity event in Calgary. Not sure about the rest of you, but a trip to see Yo’s homeland with Yo is and was an amazing gift. Some people say, “Planes and yachts are not important,” but they don’t own planes or yachts, so we kinda know, to them, they are very important. Me? I am thankful for the Fosters' generosity but would be just as happy riding old bicycles down a dirt road with a healthy strong Yo.

Which brings us to David Foster. David is many things--Canadian, composer, songwriter, Grammy winner, and Yo’s love--but he is also a generous philanthropist. So, I’d like to give kudos where they are due. The David Foster Foundation’s Miracle Gala and Concert raised $8.2 million in one night to help Canadian families with children undergoing pediatric organ transplants. On the fun side, we were lucky enough to see Jennifer Hudson, Jackie Evancho, Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds, Brett Kissel, Sinbad, and legendary rocker Steven Tyler. Great charity, great trip, great night.

To me, announcing you’re 'a nice person' isn’t the same as actually being a nice person.

Brandi Glanville

On the dramatic side, someone poked the wrong bear. We saw Kim slowly learning that someone has had one-on-one talks about her private life with everyone on RHOBH--everyone, that is, but Kim herself. To me, announcing you’re “a nice person” isn’t the same as actually being a nice person.

Yep, one new member of our little group is hell-bent on intruding, casting strong labels, making insanely irresponsible assumptions and stating them as facts, all over the place: on RHOBH, the Internet, to the media, and on Bravo’s WWHL. Calmly butting into a stranger's life with such a strong agenda and absolutely zero knowledge of any details of that life after only a few scattered social functions is a whole new level of crossing boundaries. Then, tonight, acting all wide-eyed, innocent, and confused at the results after doing so? To quote the instigator, “Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs." On another note, or maybe the same note (boundaries), it’s probably not a good idea to announce your spouse’s previous alcoholism before he does it himself. But maybe he was OK with that, and I’m wrong. Well, in any case, sincere congrats on three years of sobriety.

Kim Richards was a movie star when most of us were home watching her movies on TV after school and doing our homework. She’s been in this town a long time, knows everyone, worked since she was born, raised four children, survived Hollywood, sobriety, family, divorces, deaths, has more on her plate than all of us, and throughout it all, is caring for her terminally ill ex-husband with patience and grace. Sometimes you poke the wrong bear; that’s all I’m saying. Good luck with that.

So, on to Amsterdam. We’re taking RHOBH fans to the Netherlands. I can promise more drama and insanity but really hope you get to see some of Yolanda’s homeland, meet her wonderful family, and enjoy it as much as I did, when I could.

See you next week and enjoy the Netherlands. Maybe Google where we’re going and learn more about Yo’s hometown of Papendrecht, Netherlands. It’s right outside of Amsterdam and truly beautiful.

My day just got busy, so I’m signing off.

Mom duty calls!

XOXO,
