Kyle on why she tried to mend things with Lisa and why it hurt when she brought up "the elephant in the room."

on Nov 4, 2013

Having SUR cater my party for the Beverly Hills Chamber of Commerce party was my way of trying to fix things with Lisa. Even though I really was hurt at the Reunion, I don't want to hold onto that forever.  Some of my friends have questioned why I would even want to repair things with Lisa after everything. Well, not only did we once have a genuine friendship, but we are in the same circle of friends and both have our businesses on the same street. Life would certainly be much easier if we could be close like we once were. That proves to be difficult with Lisa taking one jab after the next at me. That day, in addition to her jabs, she brought up the subject of the lies in the tabloids that had intentionally tried to hurt my family.

We have all had lies printed about us and we all know that when you are on a reality show and putting your lives out there this can happen. But we also know that the last thing we would want to do is bring it up to give these lies a platform and make us relive this again in six months -- which is what I am having to do now. Lisa said in her interview that it was the elephant in the room and she thinks the best thing to do is just "hit it head on with me" Really? Why wouldn't you do that in private if you wanted to bring it up? No, she waited for the cameras to be there. Not only that but also Portia, who understands and takes in everything.

I was hurt but put it aside as I had already come this far having her to my home to discuss her restaurant catering the party. . .I knew then this wasn't going to be easy and found myself (the first of many times) questioning why I cared so much.
