Why Lisa Shouldn't Have Brought Up Mauricio

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

Season 4! I can't believe it. This season proves to be rockier than ever.

I loved watching Yolanda's beautiful daughter Gigi modeling. Such a beauty -- and sweet on top of it. Of course, her mother and I have some issues to work out. I had not spoken with Yolanda since last year's Reunion. I will say though, she seems to be a great mom and very proud of her children.

I am happy to see Brandi's success. Brandi and I have always clashed, made up, and clashed again. . .I think that is mainly because we didn't really know each other nor did we make the effort to do so. Things change a lot this season and the dynamics among the group change drastically.

Lisa had always wanted to do Dancing With the Stars, so I am sure she was excited. At this point, we had not spoken since the Reunion last year. The accusations hurled at Mauricio were so offensive and calculated that there really wasn't anything to say. I said how I felt at the reunion and left it at that.

I had made many efforts to repair the relationship with Lisa, but at this point it really was so damaged. However, I don't like having any bad feelings between friends or former friends -- which is why I make another effort to "patch" things.

Watching my sister Kim and her dog Kingsley made me laugh! Too cute. My sister is such an incredible mom. Having her kids grow and leave home (although Chad is still at home) has to be SO difficult. I DREAD that day. A dog like Kingsley really does fill a void.

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.

The party was . . .well, interesting. Not exactly the White Party. But, contrary to Lisa's beliefs, I actually am a business woman now. I am a mom and wife first but I opened this store and I want it to be a success. Mauricio and The Agency, as well as my friends Tiffany and Andy who own Fatburger are members and told me it is really good for business. I am learning the ropes and am having a lot of fun with it. I love fashion and I love meeting all the people that come into the store and helping them put together looks. The staff and I have a lot of fun together! I absolutely adore them!

I was surprised at how close Lisa and Scheena are. I can't imagine that is easy for Brandi to see considering the history and her own close friendship with Lisa.

This was also the first time I met Carlton and Joyce. Both of whom I liked right away. As well as their husbands.

In Carlton's interview she said she was shocked to hear me mention "Lisa's nipple". . .That three-quarters of of a nipple joke actually CAME from Lisa. One of the tabloids had said she had done pornos and she kept joking and saying "oh, please! it was three-quarters of a nipple! " And based on things that you will be seeing this season, I find it hard to believe that Carlton could be offended by a nipple comment.

Hold on for a bumpy ride! Season 4 is here!

Kyle: This Was Brandi's Master Plan

Kyle believes Brandi has purposefully been driving a wedge between her and her sister.

After dropping Alexia off at college, I wanted to distract myself by spending time with friends and laughing. I thought a day at a spa with the girls would be fun. All was good until the wine tasting! The wine tasting was an absolute mistake. The hotel was going to set up a day for us. I didn't know many of the details, except that we would have massages and be eating lunch there. Kim has always maintained that she is fine being around others drinking at social events. However, being put into a situation where we are supposed to be interacting, like a wine tasting where she couldn't even participate, felt awful. I never would have intentionally put Kim in that situation. In fact, I offered to leave but Kim insisted she was fine. We didn't stay long and got out of there.


I had been looking forward to poker night, because I really like Eileen and wanted to get to know her better. Besides, I had never played poker before and thought it would be fun to learn.

Eileen's home is lovely. Brandi's rude comments about Eileen's home were uncalled for. You would think after throwing the wine at Eileen she would be bending over backwards to be nice to her.

Almost from the moment we started playing poker, things were extremely uncomfortable. I could see Kim was "off" but wasn't quite sure how to handle the situation.
One thing that was very clear to me in watching this is that Brandi is not my friend. Never has been. I have tried to give her the benefit of the doubt but always kept her at arms' length. To see her pretending to be friends with me in the car ride to Eileen's and then turning on me made things abundantly clear to me. Brandi can't be a friend to anyone. Including my sister.


Brandi clearly has been driving a wedge between my sister and me, which seems to have been her master plan from the beginning.

Her comments about me always being jealous of Kim's career couldn't be further from the truth. That is not how we were raised. My mom always taught us that any success the three of had ( Kathy, Kim, and Kyle) was a "feather in all our caps."

As a child, you aren't thinking of your "career." In fact, often I would hate that I had to work, because I would be missing something like a friend's birthday party. Brandi pretending she knows us, our history, or anything about our relationship is hurtful and frustrating. She is a new person in our lives whom we have no history with. She makes these comments to be mean and cause Kim to question her relationship with me. Apparently it's working.

What Brandi was calling jealousy was actually concern. Perhaps Brandi always assuming everyone is jealous is her projecting.

I went to the bathroom and Kim followed me in. Brandi seems to not have even wanted Kim to come to the bathroom to talk to me.

I whispered for obvious reasons, but Kim directly talked about what was going on with her that night. Kim told me she had taken a pill because she had been in pain. I was disappointed but felt she was being more open than in the past. At the very least, it was a situation we could deal with, because she was communicating openly about what was happening. We hugged and left the bathroom, and I thought everything was OK between us. My sister has been under a lot of pressure taking care of her ex-husband, Monty. If she had slipped, it would have been understandable, and the fact that we had talked about it made me feel better. Next thing I know Kim says to me "thanks for doing that," says she is leaving, and is clearly upset with me.

Kim being mad at me made no sense, which made me more concerned for the situation and her well-being. I wanted to pull her away from everyone to speak privately but Brandi wasn't allowing us to, as though she somehow needed to "protect" my sister from me, when clearly my sister needed a loved one to make sure she was OK (which is why she followed me into the bathroom). Brandi was putting her arm up and blocking me from being able to talk to my sister. Many things are going through my head at this point: Concern for my sister and for our relationship that we have worked so hard on and the fear that a manageable (yet concerning) situation might spiral out of control, because one person seemed to be using it to her advantage in a dangerous way. 

I was extremely frustrated that this person, who is not family or anyone I consider close, is keeping me from my sister. She put her arm up to block me, and I first said, "Please don't do that." I then pushed her arm down to stop her from blocking me from Kim. As Kim was leaving and Brandi was walking out with her and blocking me, I pulled her arm back to stop her from keeping Kim and me apart.

It is very clear to me that Brandi takes advantage of Kim when she is at her most vulnerable and wants her to believe that she is the only one that cares or understands her.

Kyle Richards

I simply wanted to get to my sister out of concern. The last person I wanted Kim with was a drunk Brandi.

Watching Kim and Brandi talking outside it is very clear to me that Brandi takes advantage of Kim when she is at her most vulnerable and wants her to believe that she is the only one that cares or understands her. Brandi also is using my sister to look like she is taking care of Kim and distracting us from Brandi's own obvious issues.

This was the end of Brandi's and my "friendship." And the beginning of another bumpy road in Kim's and my relationship.

Until next week...
Thanks for watching.
XO,
Kyle
