Taylor's Audacity

Yolanda is aghast at a few of the ladies' behavior, particularly Taylor's at dinner.

Hi everyone. . .

Thank you so much for taking the time out of your busy day to read my blog and get to know me better.

Please know that I am a very straight shooter, and that I stand behind every word that comes out of my mouth. However, English is not my first language and sometimes I say things that get lost in translation, or I'll makeup words that don't even exist in the English dictionary.

That said, let's get to the good stuff of this week. . .

I loved watching Kim. There is something about seeing her do so well that moves me. I really want her to succeed. As she was preparing for Kimberly's prom, I felt joy for her, but also empathy because she is trying so hard to make up for lost time -- which unfortunately she can't.

It seems difficult for kids to understand that we as parents are human who sometimes make mistakes. they definitely don't realize how much time and effort goes into getting them to that special prom day safe and sound. . .It's a huge milestone!

When Kimberly walked out looking so gorgeous and calls her mom, I just got really emotional. I don't know, it was such a sweet and tender moment between a mom and a daughter.

Kyle and Lisa's visit. . .I know Kyle wants to help, but honestly do we really want to hear her go in circles about the Adrienne situation one more time? She continues to inject herself into the subject without solving the problem. She seems to be playing both sides.

Paul's conversation with Kim and Adrienne in the limo seemed so petty. I honestly don't understand how any man could choose to get involved in his wife's bickering with her girlfriend over shoes and a dog, but does he not leave out the fact that his wife accused Lisa of selling a story to the press?

Seeing this episode, I can't help but feel that there is so much more drama going on then David and I could have ever imagined. It's hard to be new in a group that has so much dramatic history and is now divided into two different groups. Some of the girls play in both groups (double-dipping?), and it kind of feels like high school. Haha.

Anyway our home is our home. We really don't do big events here. We usually only host family and our inner circle of close friends.

I had no expectations but was excited to host a beautiful night and give the girls the opportunity to meet my family. I wanted them to get a glimpse of how I live my life and what I am about as a woman, a mother, and a friend -- but unfortunately conversation never had a chance to run that deep.

I am surprised to see the girls get so snooty when talking about Richard, who happens to be much more than a butler. Not only has he been a friend and caterer of the Foster family for over 25 years; he's also a fantastic restaurateur that loves the art of entertaining. So, we are always extremely thankful to have him help us when we host the occasional dinner party.

Sitting at the dinner table, I could see the alcohol was taking effect and I could feel the negative energy starting to rise. . .Brrr. . .it gives me goosebumps.

Taylor, of course, has to trash Brandi once again. She seeems to love to do that, preferably behind her back. . .

What really rubbed me the wrong way is the attitude and audacity with which she came into our home and started acting rudely and being disrespectful to my husband, who she never even met!

She should be so honored to be in his company. Obviously our friends, musicians Chris Botti, Michael John, and Nita Withaker came out to accompany David on the piano and do a little show for our new friends, but it seemed like their petty fights and differences from the past stopped them from being in the moment and enjoying the fun night we had planned for them. Needless to say, it ended up being an early night!

I tried to break the ice and march them all out of the front door so I could burn some sage and get my happy house back. (Just kidding!)

Anyway, on and upwards! As you can imagine, the real drama has only just begun. . .

Have a great week. Talk soon,

XO

Kyle: Kim and I Will Never Agree on This Matter

Kyle clarifies the Kingsley issue and responds to Brandi's most recent accusation. 

I don't want to write this blog. I didn't even want to watch this reunion, to be honest. There. I said it. But here I go....
Let's just dive right into the text message from Lisa Rinna to Kim.
I was very shocked to hear about that text. There is no excuse for that. I believe Lisa R. knows that. I can understand Kim being upset about that. I am sure she was taken aback, as we all were when we heard it. However, I don't think Lisa Rinna is a dangerous person. She just made a really bad choice.


Now onto Amsterdam and the space cake talk. Brandi went after me in Amsterdam regarding the space cake, because she doesn't like me and wanted to deflect from her own behavior once again. This was her big chance to say something about me, calling me a hypocrite for not partaking in the space cake. I have said it before, and I will say it again: I NEVER said I haven't smoked pot. I HAVE. It's just not my thing. I have a lot more fun having a few margaritas. Kim knows that. I would have appreciated her chiming in there. Also, I have NOT eaten a pot brownie or a space cake ever, and my husband had warned me that it would not suit me well, knowing my personality. You cannot gauge exactly what you're ingesting, and it wouldn't be smart. I didn't want to have a bad experience and "freak out," so to speak. Brandi herself wasn't partaking, because of her own reasons (which had to do with her divorce, as she explained), so wouldn't that make her a hypocrite then? WHY did she care if I did or did not choose to? Because she wanted to jump at the chance to make me look bad, since her behavior and her drinking had been front and center. Her drinking was out there, because she puts it out there, and she has nobody to blame but herself. If I HAD chosen to eat a space cake, she would have jumped on that, too. Anything to divert from her own actions which she was comparing to ours. All of us may have a few drinks, but NONE of us behave like her when we drink.
I only address this because it was on television. Her opinion of me is completely irrelevant to me. I only cared, because I am a mother, and her trying to make me out to be something I am not is reckless, as is everything else she does.
Ok. Enough of that. She beat that non-event to death. I think we can move on now.

Now this is the hard part...Kim and I had not spoken since Nov 1st. We both knew the situation with my daughter, Alexia, and Kim's dog, Kingsley, was bound to come up at the reunion. We don't get to pick and choose what we want to talk about.
Alexia had spent the night at Kim's house on Halloween. The next morning, Kingsley bit her. While scary, at first it didn't seem that serious. However, what the first doctor failed to notice was that the tooth had pierced the bone and also broken it. Five days later, we found out that her bone was infected and she needed surgery to clean out the bone. Kim was upset, because I had posted pictures from the hospital. Like I said at the reunion, I NEVER said her dog bit Alexia. Never mentioned her OR her dog. TMZ ended up finding out that it was Kim's dog, and she blamed me, because I posted the pictures from the hospital. I did not do that to hurt my sister in any way or to "get Instagram followers," like she suggested. With all of my family coming and going at the hospital, people were bound to find out and talk.


We were all with Alexia at the hospital trying to distract her and have fun. As any mother would do. We were all trying to make the best out of a bad situation. We invited family and friends to visit and tried to keep her spirits up. In hindsight, I wish I hadn't posted that picture, but I certainly didn't mean to hurt Kim. She posted a picture when she was in the hospital this year. Yolanda and Camille have done so regularly. And where is her responsibility in all of this? However, I do feel bad about what it has led to. And I've told her that. I also felt terrible because I know she loves Kingsley, but I also love my child. It was a difficult time for all involved. I didn't blame Kim personally regarding the dog and was willing to drop it and move forward, yet she was too angry with me regarding the Instagram post to be able to do that.
I wish that since I was willing to let go of my anger regarding my daughter being bit and what she had to go through that she could have let go of being upset about the Instagram post. I HAVE to believe she knows I did NOT do that to hurt her.
For Kim to throw out that she would say something about Alexia ( like she did to Lisa R. regarding Harry ) nearly took my breath away. But her dog is off limits?
So there you have it.
I don't even know what to say or do anymore. Clearly, we will never agree on this matter. And now we have more issues to work through, like my hurt and anger over Kim threatening to say something about my child. I know she loves Alexia, and it was just her being angry and "in the moment," but it's going to take me some time to get past that. All I know is I am glad I don't have to relive all of this again on TV. Now I need to take a step back .
Hopefully, time will heal my relationship with Kim. Time and having an open and honest relationship.
It's been a very difficult season. That's for sure. Thank you all for watching.
XO,
Kyle

P.S
Some things I would like to clear up:

A) I NEVER asked for Kingsley to be put down. I love all animals and know how much Kim loves Kingsley. That was never part of our argument.

B) Brooke's wedding : Brooke did a small ceremony at my sister Kathy's house (part of it aired this season), so that Monty would be well enough to walk her down the aisle. The wedding we were referring to at the reunion is her actual "big wedding " coming up. And NO, I did not do anything "unspeakable" or "unforgivable" at the wedding at Kathy's house like Brandi has (once again) put out there. It was a beautiful, perfect day that Brandi Glanville is now trying to throw negativity on. She was NOT EVEN THERE. On top of everything else Brandi has done, she now wants to turn that beautiful day that my family celebrated into something to lie and gossip about. Shame on her.
