Yolanda shares her thoughts on Joyce and Brandi's behavior in Palm Springs.

on Dec 9, 2013

I am only sharing this information with you because I want you to think twice before using social media to violently judge my friend who's fighting a battle you know nothing about. It’s so easy to push the send button with your nasty comments, but please take into account how much damage your words can do to someone so fragile. NONE of this is an excuse for Brandi's behavior, but it is an explanation that needs to be taken into consideration.

I am having a very hard time watching her myself, but I am trying to remember the woman that drove all the way to Malibu just to sit by my bedside and give me a cup of coffee during my battle with Lyme disease this year… So at this point, I am giving her a pass hoping we have seen her at rock bottom and that she is getting the help she needs to work through all the demons that are haunting her. Remember, the way people treat others is a true reflection of how they feel about themselves.

By the way, none of this is news to Brandi. I have had plenty of conversations with her regarding her behavior, which you will see in the upcoming episodes.

I am not just going to drop my friend because she is not making me look very good in front of all of you right now. I will support Brandi to the best of my ability until she comes out of this very difficult time in her life. At this time, I only wish her love, light, and the ability to heal her broken heart.

In the beginning of my horrendous health journey, it was really hard to accept withdrawing from the world after being so immersed in it my whole life. But I must say that being forced to deal with half my brainpower has slowed me down and given me the ability to step back and assess situations in a clear way that I never have before. I am learning to manage my expectations of people and to try to accept everyone for who they are knowing we all do the best we can.

Have a great week.

Much love,
Yolanda
