Kim Richards

Kim gives us the gossip on her date with Martin, where she was "disappearing" to, and most imporantly, her potato recipe.

on Dec 7, 20100

This week I was so happy you all got to see how much fun my sister Kyle and I have together. Watching us get that facial really made me laugh. I have to say I really did notice a difference. I don't usually care about things like that, so I'm happy my sister dragged me there. It was worth it!

Yes, we argue at times but we love each other. I think that is just part of a normal sister relationship.

Although, I enjoy every moment I share with all my kids, I really do love my alone time with Kimberly. She's my youngest, and I cherish the moments we share. She is such an old soul and I love how straightforward she is. I really admire that about her.

I thought it was sweet of Lisa to set me up on the blind date with Martin. I know that it's time for me to create a life outside of my kids. They are growing up, and it's hard to let go. I do want to find someone to share my life with. I thought Martin was charismatic and very much a gentleman. I love his sense of humor. I think it was hard being there with everyone watching us so closely. I felt nervous and very pressured. I wouldn't say there was a love connection...if nothing else, I made a new friend.

Just to clear up why they said that I kept "disappearing": Mohammed's house is 60,000 square feet! I wasn't trying to be rude, but I found myself wandering around just to find one of the 16 bathrooms!

It was a beautiful night, and I was relieved that it was drama-free. The tension between Kyle and Camille had been stressful on all of us. Thank you so much for all of your supportive and kind words. I really appreciate them.

Answers to your questions:

I will let you all know about the website for my jewelry once it's up.

For info on the facial Kyle and I had go to Carinaskincare.com.

The recipe for "Kim's famous potatoes":
Peeled and cubed potatoes, diced green and red bell pepper, Bermuda onion, salt and pepper to taste, and, of course, I Can't Believe It's Not Butter (or real butter if you prefer). Fold in tinfoil and put them on the BBQ until potatoes are soft. Approximately 45 minutes.

Until next week...Kim

Marie, Go away! Grow up, move on. Whatever you are chattering about is in the past and you need to let it go.

DEAR KIM: I just watched the video on Bravo when you gave Kimberly her "last day of school party." You are such a great mom! Additionally, you are so beautiful! I loved seeing how confident, fun, and sweet you really are! I don't like how people say you don't have confidence...I think the behavior they are referring to only occurs when you are in a room full of drama with hateful people. You weren't prepared to be in those kinds of situations given the peaceful life you lead now. Plus, being around only Kyle's friends and a camera in your face - it's very understandable. You DO have confidence - you know who you are..you're reactions are appropriate for YOU and don't let anyone make you fell less than...As for your sister, I'm not going to insult her because I know it bothers you because you love her (plus I suspect that anytime someone insults her, she tries harder to put you in "your place"). But I will say, that anyone can see the hurt in your eyes when you get into a confrontation with her. You show much more maturity by not involving yourself in such petty things. The limo scene hurt me so much - haunted me. The comment about you being an alcoholic - you pointed your finger at her and I heard you say "you say that when you drink all day." I know you would not have ever talked about that if you weren't so shocked by her accusing you! Many probably didn't hear it because Kyle was trying so hard to shut you up (I think she knew what you were going to say). Anyway, Kim...I love you! You are beautiful INSIDE and OUT!!!

What happened to you and that Ryan Hockey player, oh, yea forgot he didn't marry you, yet you told some you were pregnant with his twins tff. Sad part you still need mental health and have yet to get it. oh as far as your dumb show? its nothing more then staged, just to make more money. And as most see you never going to be happy. Why? cause you a drug addict and a liar like you were in that chat room you use to go to and fight with all your sick Drama that all still laugh about. sick sick sick

Kim, you're a sweet girl and emotionally stuck back in your teen years! (Kyle is, too). Hang out with Adrienne, take kick boxing, boost your self esteem. Picking up some old guy in a grocery store instead of Martin? That says it all, girl! Spend time developing yourself, you don't need a man to do that!

Hi Kim, You have such a great spirit and I really believe you are a grounded and practical person. I'm thinking that these ladies may not compliment your style. Why do you even bother with these kinds of women? I feel that you could be so much happier with people who are not consumed with petty kattiness. Although, you're family is extremely well known and you've been involved and participatory in the the Hollywood/Beverly Hills/L.A. scene for most of your life, I think you are better than that world and would find so much more happiness if you sought out relationships with men and women who are, like you, more grounded and practical people. I just happen to think you have the potential to enjoy your personal life more if you strayed away from this superficial and overwhelmingly absurd world. You'll probably never read this, or take this advice but i truly feel it will do you a lot of good!

Aloha Kim,

You are so innocent and I can relate to your total dedication to your kids, watching them grow so quickly then leaving home. It is very hard for us mothers that has made our life around our kids for so long. It gets easier once they are gone for a while. You should really concentrate harder on dating and making new male friends. You are really pretty and getting better at socializing. It's time for you to make the time for YOU!

Also, I am very close to my sister as you are to Kyle, but we have never had confrontations like you two do. Yes, sisters do have a very unbreakable bond and loving friendship. This is the reason my sister and i pick and choose the words and tone we use with each other as to not hurt our relationship in anyway. This is just probably how you and Kyle always did it and that's fine if it continues to work for the two of you. Good Luck, always stay close and agree to disagree sometimes, this is very important!

Also, we all know that it came from Taylor saying that Camille was insecure, it didn't come from you. You stay the wonderful, sincere and honest person you are. You are a great mother, your children are very lucky!

Have a safe and wonderful Holiday Season!

I adore both you and Kyle. I've watched you both in movies and T.V. all of my life. We are very close in age too. I was a single mom since my kids were small and I admire your great mothering. While your sisters intentions are good to help "take care of you" she really oversteps the boundries. Firstly she has no idea what being a single mom is like. I think her assumtions are wrong about you "just not wanting to be alone". To be honest I think she bullies you. Just do what you do and go on with life. Sisters are friends and foes depending on the issue. I don't think your the one thats co-dependant to be honest. I think your sister is wonderful to care for you so much. Just remember this is your life and her [pokes are much like my brothers are to me. A way to feel superior in some way. Love her and remember she can't really help it. Just don't let her make you feel bad because shes wrong about you.

I wish you lots of luck and hope you find true love! Hopefully you'll find your voice on the show, you deserve to be there.

Hi Kim, Your sister is treating you like a dog! Honestly, read her blog and you'll see I am hardly alone on this opinion. Don't know if it's lifelong jealousy of your past career, not sure if it's because you have such adorable sweet children,who really knows..But I would stand up for yourself from now on. You are a very smart lady who can stand up for yourself. She's a strong personality but don't let that intimidate you. Next time she goes off on you throw it right back at her even more loudly and more clearly. That should shut her up for a while. You seem like such a gem. Whoever ends up with you will be one lucky guy!

Lisa is far better of a sister to Kyle than you. Get your head out of the sand andI don't understand the beef you have with Taylor. Both you and Taylor sugges Camille to be insignificant and you repsonded by saying insecure. So I just don't understand. You basically said the same thing you were just completing a thought .

Kim, your commentary asides to the camera after the dinner party were so witty...show more of that wonderful part of you. Your sense of humor and mimickry is a strong suit that you should trot out more often...

Kim I wish Kyle and Lisa would just listen to you for one minute because you have had Kyle's back all along. Taylor did say that Camille was insecure when you asked her in reply to something Taylor said. You did not bait her.

Secondly in New York when Kyle said you were there Kim , yes you seemed confused but you said, I didn't hear it and you didn't hear it cause Kyle didn't say,Why would anyone want you there without Kelsy so you can't hear what wasn't said, you had her back then too.

Thirdly at Camille's dinner Camille said so no one was talking about me (at the airport or on the plane, don't remember which exactly ) and that is when you said that Taylor had talked about it because she did. She no doubt wants to keep herself from being in the crosshairs and that is why she overtalks you and starts screaming at you. But the fact is she is the one that refired after kyle and camille had their one moment of okay it's over although you could see the look on camille's face that she was clearly thinking of a way to keep it going. She isn't painfully shy, she is painfully manipulative and negative if you don't stroke her ego.

So Kyle And Lisa, LISTEN TO KIM , SHE HAS HAD KYLE'S BACK ALL ALONG

Taylor is the one who need to take responsibility for starting this entire drama. And when Kim calls her out on, she just acts innocent and plays the victim. So no, it should be Taylor, leave Kim alone :)

Kim, Assertiness training can help you learn to deal with conflict, so your not so nervous about it. In addition, your comments (when they are cut in) are usually dead on, so I hope this gives you some courage. I also think your comments are funny sometimes. Don't be afraid to speak your mind in other words, because when you do it works really well.

I watch this show because you are on it. Simple as that. I've been a fan since I was a kid, and saw you in the "Witch Mountain" movies, which I now share with my kids. I think you are talented, strong, and hilarious. I feel your pain when the other gals leave you out of their circle. I hope you realize that the legacy you have through your work and your wonderful children far outweigh anything these "ladies" you share the small screen with can ever put you through.

I feel bad about how you are treated on the show. I think they should treat you better but to your credit you never hold it against them and keep going back. Taylor has a part in this and needs to own up to it but never does. She fights with you to distract everyone and makes it out to be something different. No wonder she overreacts and makes a lot of noise...keeps everyone from looking at her and her actions. I can see why you love being with your kids...you have a good relationship with them. More power to you and do not stress over not having a man in your life...it is always not a great thing. Good luck. Best wishes. cat

Kim I think you are so sweet but you have to get a stronger spine when it comes to Kyle. For some reason she thinks you owe her something. I know that we don't see everything but she needs to stop letting the world see her treat you so bad. I'm sure there is a better relationship without cameras around we need to see more of that. You tried to have her back with the whole Camille thing... we could see that. Just keep trying your best! God Bless!

Kim I love the sisterhood bond between you and Kyle - I can see how much love there between you two even when you disagree! But one observation is the side-bar spat that happened at Camille's dinner gathering between you and Taylor, I felt, just added fuel to the fire .. just like Kyle said. Even though I felt you really want to help your sister with her struggle with all the dirt Camille has fabricated against her .. I think there are times you do things without realizing it that is hurting your sister. I don't think Kyle is mean to you but just reacting to your part in stiring up the pot even more at the dinner table.

As for the dinner party - I think Adrienne put it best "that was horrifying!"

I just love you!!! Stay as you are. Whether you know it or not, YOU are the breath of fresh air on the show. Don't try too hard to fit in with the others, you are wonderful as you are. And, I want you to know, I love watching the segments about YOUR life and so do all of my friends. I wish you much happiness and success!

Hi Kim! You're definitely my favorite on the show. You're the most down to earth person on the show and also the kindest, which is severely lacking in some of the other girls. I do feel that you and Kyle should really sit down and talk about your relationship because she does seem to overreact and get overly emotional with you on things that shouldn't be such a huge deal. But you're sisters so you should be on the same side and you can stick up for her and also tell her you expect her to stick up for you in situations, especially when dealing with crazies like Camille.

At least get the names correct-Faye Resnick not Kyle. Kyle is one of the housewives. Are you sure we are watching the same show? How can you admire a person like Allison Dubois when she makes comments such as how if any of the housewives children went missing she would never assist in finding them. Doesn't that scare you a bit? Is that how you would use a "gift" like that? To do evil?

The best part of the dinner party at Camille's home was at the end when you were leaving you said, "Thank you." You by far are my most favorite character.

Kim, I have watched a few episodes of the show and each one I have seen your sister get into a fight with someone and loss control of her temper. When the person she is fighting with refuses to continue fighting with her, she turns on you. Then directs all that poisonous anger in your direction. I recognize that we are only seeing a fraction of what happens and they edit the filming to make the show more controversial. But if that’s how she treats you when the cameras are on, someone she says she loves, what’s going on when the cameras are turned off. My wish for you that you realize that you have strength, worth, skills, and you’re not the source of all sisters’ problems and you’re not her cross to bear. Love your sister from a distance until she learns to share in your life instead of declare war on it. My sister and I have very different lives and we agree on very little when it comes to life style and parenting. And still I have never talked to her nor has she talked to me the way the show has shown Kyle speak to you. Don’t drop to her level set the standard and demand that she join you on the high ground. I have only seen two women on your show behave like grown women and Kyle is not one of the two. It is clear to the young women of America now that money has nothing to do with class, respectful behavior and behaving like an adult.

Kim, can I tell you that I appreciate you and your sense of humor. Too bad your sister doesn't see all the great things about you. I don't have a sister, but if I did, I would want one exactly like you!!! Have to say you and Lisa are my favorites, funny, beautiful, smart... :)

okay, so here goes, just watched the "angry" dinner party episode. And I guess, as the older sister too, I think that it is time for you to do what I did with my little sister. Please keep in mind that I love her to death. There is nothing I would not do for her. But.... for a while..... I let her get away with everything. And you know why I did that? Because I felt guilty about not being a better sister when I was a teen. That guilt trip lasted for a long, long time. And then one day I woke up, and felt refreshed. I had paid my dues. Not that I would ever hurt her, not that I would not have her back... I always would. But, their was no way.... no way.... she would treat me like dirt anymore; to take her anger out on me.

And so there she and I were, with our family and she pulled out her nastiness towards me. I stood up from the table, looked at her, pointed my finger and said, "be very careful little girl... I have allowed you a lot of things these years and I am telling you to be careful how you tread because I am done. Do not let me hurt your feelings because I know you and I will. Tread lightly little one".

She folded in a matter of a second. Our relationship is better for it. And of course I still let her win all the time; I love her! She's my little sister! She makes more money than I do..... she is so much better at being a people person than I am. And you know what Kim? Could not be happier for her!!! I adore her. BUT..... I am a pretty fantastic person too. I really like me. Kim- please stand up to your little sister- I know you both love each other,but she treats you badly. Truth is..... she needs you to be strong. Hope you trust me on this.

I'm so happy to see you on the show !! Growing up you were always my favorite actress, you were and are so pretty!!!I'm so glad you are not as phoney as some people in Beverly Hills! You are really funny and down to earth and I think that's why your my favorite. All my friends love you too. Will you start doing more movies? I hope so!! Your still the best.!!! Your a terrific Mom and I do hope you find some one who you can love, it's hard to find, but don't settle for any thing less than what your heart desires!!!

Kim, I like you and Kyle a lot. I'm the youngest of three girls and I too always felt like the older sister. Please give your sister a break and stand on your own a little more. You know what you want and get it. Do it on your own now. You are strong.

Please oh please encourage your sister to get some anger management therapy. She is seriously off the charts, in how explosive she reacts to almost everything that is negative. I do not enjoy watching her anymore because she always looks ready to attack the person in front of her.

As her sister you owe her that. On a sidenote..love you and think you are great!

Dear Kim: Your sister has some deep issues with you. She treats you terribly and is narcissistict; be careful. She's one of those that likes to dish it out, but when someone tries to give it back to her, she puts on her "who me/poor me" act. She's controlling and manipulative. She and Taylor are the most insecure people on the show. They are the phoney and classless. Lisa pretends to have class, but is disrespectful and then blames the consequences of her lack of respect on the other person (i.e.: when she barged in and proceeded to criticize your potatoes). You and Adrianne are the only people there who seems to know the meaning of respect and how to mind your own business. Camille tries to come across as the better person but goes about things sophormorically. She has misinterpreted Kyle, and I believe she knows it. It is her intention to punish Kyle for her nasty girl ways.

Allison Dubois is a very gifted medium. This does not mean that she is not human and perfect. She is immature. She and Kyle Resnick were on a mission at the dinner. Each came to support their friend, and were ready to attack on a moment's notice. Personally, I believe Kyle Resnick was out of line with her comment to Allison regarding the communcation between Camille and Allison. In essence she threw the first punch by calling them liars. Of course, Camille should not have brought up the Playboy spread. Allison may have behaved cocky, but she didn't say anything derogatory until Resnick attacked her.

Camille had no intention of reconciling with Kyle. She's not the lamb she pretends to be.

I fail to see any true friendships here. Even the relationship between you and your sister is one sided. So sad. Money and possessions have taken away all kindness and spirituality. It's interesting how nobody at the dinner tried to understand or appreciate someone like Allison Dubois. If people would look beyond their own thoughts and judgements, they will see amazing things. I have had two very gifted psychics in my family. I'm grateful for the understanding I have of that world. ...but then, goodness and kindness don't make good television... YOU GUYS WANT CLASS? ....BE KIND!

Kim – Your One Liners are Hilarious – when you told Taylor to “blow up her lips some more” during the dinner fiasco, I screamed. However, I have to share with you that blood is thicker than water. It’s okay to tell your sister that you don’t agree with her actions, but do it behind closed doors. In public you have to support your family. She will always be your sisters, but friends come and go.

By the way, if you exude a little self confidence, men will gravitate to you.

Support your sister – whether she’s right or wrong. You can kick her ass later.

I think you need to stand up to your sister sometimes when she speaks to you in a demeaning way. That is wrong. You probably are the kind who likes to avoid problems but I've been in the same situation as you. If you don't stand up for yourself in a confident manner, people will walk all over you. If these ladies don't have the respect to wait for you or include you GET NEW FRIENDS who appreciate your true value, love hanging out with you and make you happy. There's a lot of people out there. Most women on that show look miserable anyway by the time you make friends and realize it they will be the ones wanting to hangout with you. Please be a team with your sister but don't let her talk down to you in front of your friends. Hope you guys have worked it out.You don't buy sister love.

Kim the breast feeding joke was so hysterical, I am on to your sense of humor, you are a riot. Even though they are editing you to be kind of the dopey, weaker sister, I think smart people will see you for who you really are, sweet, sensitive and very cool.

Hey Kim, I am just very curious... do you drink more than you should before each show? You should stand up for yourself more often. You can't possibly like that Kyle disrespects you and teaches others to do the same, can you? Don't make such excuses like "sisters do this" because I have sisters, and we don't treat each other mean. Try to command respect and others, including Taylor, will follow your lead.
