Kyle: I Care Enough About Lisa to Move On

Kyle tries to sort out the "she said, she said" around her gift to Carlton and explains what she thinks of Lisa's loyalty.

This week I visited Joyce and filled her in on Mauricio and Ken's birthday dinner and shared with her the strange happenings with my computer. I have no clue why my computer did that. I do know that I don't believe in "witchcraft" or "putting spells" on people. I just know that it was odd, and, in light of Joyce's recent experience with Michael getting sick, I shared it. Do I believe that Carlton did that? No. I did think it was strange and one of those things you just can't explain.

I was really looking forward to Puerto Rico. We decided not to invite Carlton, for obvious reasons. If I'm planning a trip with Joyce, I would not invite someone that I'm not only not friends with, but someone I have had so many issues with. That would only be asking for trouble.

Gigi's party: I love how Yolanda and Mohammed get along so well. That is the only way to co-parent -- putting your children's well being first and foremost.

Gigi's party was beautiful. We always have fun at Mohammed's house. I honestly could not control my tears at Gigi's and Yolanda's beautiful speeches. Between Kimberly and Gigi going off to college and knowing Alexia will be leaving this August, it was just too close to home.

You could cut the tension between Lisa and Brandi with a knife -- not to mention the awkwardness between Carlton and I. After I gave the necklace to Carlton, I found the crown that goes to the necklace in my closet. I certainly wasn't going to throw away a piece of jewelry, and it made no sense to keep it.

I didn't feel comfortable walking up to Carlton, since she clearly doesn't like me and I didn't want to risk it turning into a fight. Honestly, it probably was part peace offering and part just what it was. . .the other half of the necklace. Everyday I would look at it and be reminded that it was the other half of the necklace that I gave Carlton. I would rather her have it than throw it away -- and it actually looks really cool together. The fact that Carlton viewed my having Brandi hand her this gift as doing my "dirty work" is exactly why I didn't feel comfortable handing it to her myself. She so desperately wants to hate me that she even views a gift as an attack.

The controversy over the necklace was ridiculous. There was so much "she said, she said" that I will let you come to your own opinion on that as I am still a bit confused myself. I do know that after Carlton had Brandi give it back to me that it was then given to Brandi, who then didn't want it, then to Yolanda, and then to Joyce later and then it went missing altogether. All this over a piece of jewelry!

Joyce had told me that her father was ill and that she was going to visit him. She asked me not to tell the other women. When he actually did pass away, I didn't think that she would have still wanted to keep that private -- especially since we were all going to Puerto Rico and it was certainly bound to come up. I know when my parents passed away I wanted all the support I could get. I thought by letting them know they could reach out to her and hopefully offer support.

Lisa and I met at my store to look for clothes for Puerto Rico. As we started to speak, I realized I really needed to get some things off my chest. When I told Lisa that I wanted to move past our issues once and for all, I meant it. Lisa kept saying "Oh, we're past that. It's done." But clearly there were still some underlying issues.

When I brought up the "accusations," I wasn't JUST referring to her bringing up the tabloids -- but also the accusations about Mauricio only befriending people for business. That had NEVER been discussed since Lisa said that at the Reunion last year. Not once. In order to start fresh, I wanted to address that so I could personally move past it.

I care enough about Lisa to move forward but needed to be heard. Last week Lisa questioned why I didn't defend her. . .Maybe because I had never had this conversation and was still hurt and upset by these situations that were swept under the carpet. I wanted to have this conversation so we could get back to where we once were. Lisa said that she was the most loyal friend I ever had. I kept quiet as I felt like we were making progress and wanted to stay on the right track. However, my most loyal friends and I haven't had to have this type of conversation. At this point, Lisa and I have both felt hurt by one another and it is time to move on from that.

Until next week. . .

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!
