Sunday Blog and Chat Blog for Real Housewives of Atlanta all Rolled into One! / Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Cast Blogs

Real Housewives of Atlanta Preview by NoMoreDrama

Anyway – last we left the ladies they were all in Los Angeles with NeNe.  NeNe was a terrible sport on twitter after the episode aired, and seems to have alienated all of her castmates except Cynthia.  She did try to make up a little with Porsha and Kenya, calling them her little sisters.  But she basically called Kenya a jelly liar, and she called Porsha “slow” on WWHL, so it’s probably too little too late.

This episode is called “Strip is the Trip.”  The ladies all head to Vegas for a girls’ weekend.  Porsha apparently won’t go to the strip club because of Kordell’s objections.  The ladies try to teach her how to be independent.  I don’t know – it sounds like peer pressure to me.  If SHE wants to respect her husband’s wishes, then she should be left alone.  It seems to me that some of the ladies (Phaedra and Kandi in particular) are really into strippers.  How many times do we have to sit through the same storyline?

Oh, and Kenya will confront Phaedra.  Apparently Kenya’s video is selling better than Phaedra’s – so she got the last laugh on this one.  Read about that here.

Cast Blogs by Stars99

Adrienne Maloof

Sorry guys – Adrienne, The Martyr (aka:  The Human Stain) is just too busy copy catting everything Lisa does – to bother to write a blog for us this week… or ever! 

Brandi Glanville

“Paris! Yolanda and I really bonded on our trip to Paris. We had both spent many years there modeling in the past. I think Yolanda is a beautiful sexy woman and when she asks me to go exercise, I do. If I wanted to look that good in 10 years I better get my ass jogging (even though I was super under the weather).”

Kinda smart to find someone you’d like to look like in 10 years – and then find out how she does it… then do it!  I think I’ll strive for the Jabba the Hut look myself… By the way, Brandi explains that her hair looks wonky cuz her curling iron exploded on the trip… evidently, curling irons, too have limits of how much crap they can endure.

“We all head to the Eiffel Tower, and I wasn’t super excited because I am deathly afraid of heights. So when you see me standing next to the iron please note that I was two decks back from the edge where Yo scared the s*** out of me and pretended to “fly.””

Giggles – it’s prolly fun for Yo to tease you about heights.  She seems pretty fearless at times…It looked to me like she was doing a Titanic pose… though I suppose if you fall of a ship it makes more of a splash than a splat off the Eiffel Tower. 

“Kyle and Lisa have a heart-to-heart and Kyle admits that she is jealous of Lisa’s friendship with me. Kyle says that Lisa and I are a mismatched pair. . .Hmmm wonder what she means by that?”

It kind of cracks me up that Kyle felt she needed to verbalize that she thought you guys were mismatched.  While I disagree with the notion that others have voiced that you’re a younger version of Lisa… it seems to me like you guys enjoy hanging out with each other and have way too much fun for words. That’s my first criteria of a friend – do I want to be around this person?

“Kim and I had a bonding moment on the Tower, which I thought was very sweet. Kyle and Lisa kissed it out — so let’s hope it all goes better now. 

I just wish they would move forward in their friendship – however it’s defined for them… and STFU already about it.

“I love to cook, so I was very excited to take this cooking class although I have never loved French food. When we were leaving the hotel heading to the cooking class, I realized that Kim was missing. Yolanda and Kyle went up to check on her. We all hoped it was not another Hawaii incident. This trip to Paris, Kim seemed fine one second and then completely off the next. We were all very concerned about her. Yolanda and Kyle were able to wake Kim and get her down to the class. Lisa was truly concerned, but Kim took it as something it wasn’t. I thought it better to just give Kim and Kyle their space, but I’m not the boss of anyone here.”

Actually, you were the smart one in the group – space is just what the space cadet needed.

 “Yolanda, Kyle, Kim, and Mauricio go shopping and Kim is upset because she thinks Lisa is stirring the pot. Yolanda assures her that it doesn’t matter, and if that is true she isn’t her friend. Yolanda was being extremely sweet to Kim and helping her out the entire trip. To make things very clear it was because Kim seemed very unstable during our Paris trip and we were all worried about her.  Yolanda was just trying to help Kim put her best foot forward and worry about her health instead of what the rest of us gals thought. All of us, including Lisa, were coming from a loving place.”

Lisa was literally stirring a pot and she was talking behind Kim’s back in front of her face.  I think Yo has (or had… as it seems to have evolved… film at 11:00 PM) a soft spot for Kim. Kim has a history of not showing up to things… and while she is anxious to forget all about that – it’s still very clear in all the memories of the sober people in the crowd.  She can’t expect people just to forget everything…It seems like people were trying to give her the benefit of the doubt – but they were worried about her.

Camille Grammer

Sorry guys – Camille is just too busy watching paint dry – to bother to write a blog for us this week.

Kim Richards

Sorry guys – Kim is just too busy mixing up her medications, flipping a fig, and rewriting history – to bother to write a blog for us this week.

Kyle Richards

Sorry guys – Kyle is just too busy babysitting Kim – to bother to write a blog for us this week.  I hear she gets $3.00 an hour!  Woo hooo!

Lisa Vanderpump

Lisa starts out talking about the cooking class… 

“We had arranged to meet at about 6:30 pm, outside of the hotel. I had spent the morning with Kim, separated before lunch and then spent the afternoon with Yolanda at the Notre Dame. We were all acutely aware that there was a significant change in Kim’s behavior, but couldn’t quite understand what exactly was responsible for the shift. I knew she wasn’t drinking, for sure, and I support her 1000 percent in her struggle with sobriety. But she seemed sleepy, lethargic, rambling, and almost incoherent at times. We waited for her for a substantial amount of time, which in the past had been a bit of a ritual and finally she joined us.”

“She still seemed not herself so I asked her in my naïveté, as there is such a difficult time change of nine hours, if she had taken a sleeping pill. I am ignorant of the fact, and have since been educated, that if you struggle with one sort of addiction, it is almost as if you slipped if you indulge in some sort of sleep aid. I didn’t realize the two were synonymous.”

Yeah, Kim seemed to think Lisa was suggesting that she lost her “sobriety” by taking a sleeping pill.  It was insulting to her – I get that – but holy crap on a cracker, did she pitch a fit or what?  Imagine what she would have done if Lisa had hidden her crutches?

“Kim was over emotional and volatile, vehemently denying that she had been in her bedroom all day. As I said previously we had left her just before lunch and she didn’t reappear until that evening. . .She was not accurately recalling the events of that afternoon.”

 Yes, she wasn’t remembering correctly. We found out last week that she had taken the wrong medication with her on the trip.  It’s just too bad Lisa can’t acknowledge that even now.  You all were right – she was off.  She was medically really off.  Plus, add in jet lag and not knowing which end is up…and it’s truly not the biggest deal in the world to be foggy. Well, sometimes it is – but I’ll refrain from mentioning Jodi Arias.

“As we watch this story unfold, all will be explained. I empathize with her situation, and love and support her.”

Lisa, it’s great that you want to support Kim… but just as you don’t like people to talk about you behind your back… it would help if you didn’t talk about Kim. 

“Kyle and I still have fun together. You the viewer has seen that. But she repeatedly brings up the question mark over ours. Absolutely the friendship changed, and I have endeavored to explain it to her as best I can. Actions have consequences, and she has difficulty computing that. The ripple effect of the hurt that is caused will manifest a change in any relationship. The trust isn’t there, but I continue to challenge her, intimating that going forward, if she was ever in my corner when under pressure (which sounds ridiculous but occurs frequently in this group of women). I would appreciate it and maybe it would be a step in the right direction towards rebuilding our friendship — back to what it used to be anyway let’s not hold our breath.” 

Kyle wants your relationship to be the same as it used to be… sadly for Kyle, she chose “Team Maloof” and that team has gone *poof*.   It is so ancient history when someone brings up last year’s selling stories to the tabloids fiasco…  There have been plenty of other times when Kyle hasn’t defended Lisa since then… and there have been plenty of times when Lisa hasn’t defended Kyle.  Other than being on a reality show, I don’t get how these women can stand there and not say anything while someone says outlandish things they know are probably not the truth.  In the interest of normal, honest discussion, why don’t they say what they know to be the truth instead of backing away and watching the fireworks? Oh yeah, this is Bravo… evidently Bravo believes we can’t handle the truth (you must read that using your best Jack Nicholson voice).  How many times have we said, “That can’t possibly be true” or “I can’t believe that’s true” in our normal conversations with others?  It’s not about having someone’s back as much as it’s trying to keep the conversation at least within eyesight of the truth.

Marisa Zanuck

Sorry guys – Marisa is just too busy lovingly reminding her husband that he loves her way more than she loves him – to bother to write a blog for us this week. 

Taylor Armstrong

“As I watched the first evening in Paris, I was nervous for Kim. As she stood on the balcony talking with Lisa, I knew something wasn’t right with her. It gave me a pit in my stomach seeing her not lucid.  As I worry for Kim, I also worry for Kyle. I could see the panic on her face as she realized Kim was “off.” Kyle so desperately wants her sister to succeed in her sobriety and any red flag sends fear through her. As viewers and as friends, we have only seen slight glimpses of the destruction this disease has caused Kim and her entire family. We all love Kim and want her to be healthy and happy. Any sign that she may not be on the positive path she has been on since her treatment evokes concern from everyone in the group. Kim has said that every day is a struggle and we are all so proud of her for each day she succeeds. However, there is a long history here and it’s only natural that Kyle would have fears or doubts that this time the outcome will be different. The questions from the group are frustrating to Kim as she has worked so hard on her recovery but, I know the girls are coming from a place of concern not judgment or criticism.”

Okay, this is like the 3rd week in a row where I agree with Taylor about something. We should all be vewy, vewy scared. 

“During the tough times, Lisa and Kyle have been there for me. Lisa can be brutally honest — but if she cares for you, it comes from the heart and with the best of intentions. It wasn’t right for Kim to question Lisa’s concern for her when Kim was clearly disoriented. If Lisa didn’t care for her, she wouldn’t have spent the morning shopping and talking with her. As they were shopping and Kim was rambling, she was saying how much she liked Lisa and how she wanted to spend more time with her back in Beverly Hills. Kim was talking negatively about Kyle at the same time saying she wasn’t “real” to her and that she had changed.”

Yeah, Kim was pretty disoriented. It’s too bad. I truly hope it was temporary. 

“Later that evening when the age old question emerged “Where’s Kim?” it became clear that Kim’s recollection of the day’s events were quite different than reality. She was angry with Lisa for pointing out the inconsistencies in the day’s events. Lisa was merely identifying the gravity of Kim’s confusion.”

Yeah, we’d do a “Where’s Waldo” puzzle featuring Kim… except that she’s too easy to find… she is over sleeping in her hotel room…  at home looking for a non-existent driver’s license… or searching for that lost shaker of salt.

“Watching Lisa, I could see how puzzled she was at Kim’s lapse of memory concerning the timeline of events that day. I found it ironic that Kim started the day praising Lisa and criticizing Kyle and by the evening she wanted nothing to do with Lisa labeling her “fake and phony” while asking Kyle to sit, listen and support her as she cried in the van. I was bewildered by Kim as the girls made their way around Paris.”

I’m continuing to force myself to give Kim the benefit of the doubt that it was the drug mix-up… right?  Kim can’t really be that wackadoo on her own… can she?  Perhaps this is her sober? Naw…

Yolanda H. Foster

“Seeing B and I skipping along the Seine just made me so happy because that’s what girlfriend time should be like. It was probably the first time you saw the real me with my guard down because she makes me feel safe to be myself.” 

Wait… so now that you and Brandi are besties… you just call her “B”… While it was fun to watch you guys skip… but the cartwheels had me wishing I was there, too!

“I have been quite reserved, probably as a defense mechanism. It has taken me time to trust and figure out who has my back in this group.”

Alex Trebek, the answer is “No one.” 

“My time with Brandi in Paris was my favorite time of this whole season, we have so much in common and I just love her honesty she is a good woman and we have been great friends ever since.” 

Awww… kumbayah.  Just don’t tell her any deep dark secrets.  Just sayin’… 

“Brandi is very independent and knows Paris. I felt the need to be momma bear and keep an eye on Kim. I felt protective of her because I could see she was struggling and having a tough time.  Kyle was occupied with her husband and enjoying the city of love and romance as they should.  Lisa and Ken spent the morning with Kim and then took Giggy and I on a double date; I had never dated someone that famous. . .Everyone on the street recognized Giggy and even though I missed my hubby, I enjoyed my date with that little pooch.”

Adorably cute statements that Giggy was the famous one in the group… 

“I texted with Kim in the morning and then again later in the afternoon. I knew she was fine, but I was surprised when she wasn’t there on time to leave for dinner. Kim was obviously having issues, but when I went into her room it was very clear to me that she had overslept and was maybe dealing with a chemical imbalance or a mixture of the wrong medication. Her room was perfect and there was not any evidence that she had been drinking.”

You wisely looked around… and came to the seemingly right conclusion.

“Knowing Kim’s doctor very well, she had given me permission to talk to him and see if there was any explanation of why she was feeling so tired and nauseous, so I tried to help her figure out why she was not feeling well. Anyway, I tried to be a good friend and support her but all was forgotten once we were back in L.A. Funny how quickly some people can forget sincere acts of kindness.”

Rut roh… me thinks Kim may not have fallen off the wagon, but she seems to have fallen from grace.

“On our ride to the cooking class, Lisa was trying to be lighthearted and joke — but Kim was uncomfortable and sensitive about having slept for most of the day.  I wish once we got to the cooking class that Lisa would have dropped it because seeing her bring it up to Kyle and then Mauricio with Kim in the room, did not make things any better.”

Yeah, Lisa was just making matters worse. 

“When Kim, Kyle, and I went shopping the next day, I really enjoyed my time with them and thought we had a nice time. Kim was still hurt about the night before and they both expressed their concerns about Lisa and their perception of what went down in their relationships with her. I meant when I said maybe she does not care anymore. . .  At this point, Lisa has been let down by Kyle so many times that the truth is that at some point you stop caring. . .What is so hard to understand?” 

It’s pretty clear to most people. 

“I believe the only thing constant in life is change, that’s just the way it is, no? Let’s not confuse this with gossip. It’s a clear fact that has been stated over and over again by Lisa herself.  Lisa and I have known each other for a couple of years and have a mutual respect for one another. She is a very smart woman that knows how to maneuver in this group better than any of us and she has done it successfully with integrity and loyalty to her friends.” 

Well, other than Brandi and now you, I’m not sure who else Lisa would call her “friend” at this point.

“Unfortunately, the love and time I put into Kim on this wonderful trip to Paris was soon forgotten once back in LA as the reality of the story was changed.”

Double rut roh… I would so not want to be Kim right now… it seems like she has landed on Yo’s bad side now… by her own actions and history rewriting.

“Thank god I can go to sleep at night knowing I live my life with great integrity and like I have to remind myself, we sometimes can’t be best friends with everyone.  I guess a good deed never goes unpunished, and I wish the sisters well and hope they can find a solution on how to make their relationship work. I continue to keep rooting for Kim and wish her continued success in her journey.” 

Ouchie… now they’re merely referred to as “the sisters”… Yikes!  Can you say “DONE”… yes, yes, I KNEW you could!

112 Responses to Sunday Blog and Chat Blog for Real Housewives of Atlanta all Rolled into One! / Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Cast Blogs

  1. I didn’t expect a new blog this morning so I posted this on the previous one. Am pasting it here to the new one, and will be back later to read and chat. Hugs!
    ______
    Good Morning! Lovely Sunday AM, but I wish we could stop messing with this time change. I love the longer days, but the sun stays out later anyway, so why are we still flipping clocks? Messes me up for a few days until I get used to it. I am an early riser so I flew out of bed this morning thinking I was late, stubbed my toe, and haven’t had coffee yet. :O

    Lainey, just read about your darling dog…..so sorry to hear of your loss. Just know you now have a special angel watching over you, so she is not really gone, just in the physical. Nancy I did not get a chance to say this to you either…..but this is true for all of you who have lost your lovely pets. Think of them with their wings on and know they still follow you everywhere….just as they did when they were down here. But now, they can go with you wherever you are and protect you. And, they are putting in a good word for you! 🙂 Blessings to your hearts that they heal.

    Wishing everyone a lovely Sunday. I am off to do grocery shopping before the crowds hit. Be back later. Oh, and “the big reveal” was a success yesterday! DD’s room is a lovely mix of greys, whites and blacks with accents of blue and purple. Stunning!

    New Post, “Sunday Inspiration”, is up at my place. Enjoy!
    http://fromthedeskofmardrag.wordpress.com/

    • P.S. Wow…I am first….no prize necessary! 😛

      And thanks NMD for the new post……hope you are having a lovely vacation and thanks for thinking of us. You rock!

    • Laineylainey says:

      Thanks Mardrag, that’s a lovely visual.

    • Powell says:

      Hey MarDrag. Friday on Kelly&Michael Kelly said there was a poll done & 60% of the people said it takes them a week to adjust to the time change. Shesaid it takes her a week also. Funny because it didn’t start affecting me until a few yrs ago.
      So happy to hear the big reveal was a big success. DD is all ready for Spring.

      Lainey so sorry to hear about your dog. I hope you all are coping the best way you can. 😦
      Have a great day MarDrag.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        We’re fine Powelly-pooh! It’s a new day!! I located some family pics with Daisy in them. That made me feel better. 🙂

        • Powell says:

          Daisy. That’s sweet. Reminds me of the Dagwood comics and movies. Their dog was Daisy. I’m glad her pictures made you feel better. 🙂

      • Hi Powell…..I am not surprised by that percentage. It really throws me off and I do wonder why we still do it. Thanks for the info. Hope your Sunday is spectacular!

    • Boobah says:

      Hey there Mardrag! Stubbing your toe first thing in the morning – Ouch!

      Congrats on the success of your big reveal!! The colors you describe sound beautiful together! I’m glad that your DD is happy!

      The time change messed me up also. I might need a nap!

      Have a great day!

      • Hi Boo….thanks, it was a good day to finish and she is happy, so I am happy!

        I definitely am headed for a nap right now. I have homemade spaghetti sauce simmering on the stove and a bit of time to snooze so off I go to my comfy chair and la la land!

        Hope your Sunday has been great! Oh, and how did the living room rearrange go last night? Hope it was a happy result! Hugs!

  2. Laineylainey says:

    Wow, NMD thanks for the new blog! Stars, loved your BH blog comments. Just curious about one thing, you say Lisa hasn’t defended Kyle. When was that? I remember lisa being loyal to Kyle before that reunion.

    • Rebecca says:

      And Lisa defended her for her game night actions, even though she was a total out of control bitch. I’m glad Lisa admitted she was wrong there.

      I am also not buying the Kim storyline. She is clearly still addicted to prescription drugs. I never bought that the only thing wrong with her was she was an alcoholic. She’s still a hot mess. She needs off the show and into a real rehab facility.

    • Stars99 says:

      ITA – I think Lisa was generally loyal to Kyle before the reunion and I think Kyle seemed generally loyal to Lisa before the reunion… but since then, neither has… in my opinion. I was just thinking that two wrongs don’t make a right. I don’t necessarily blame Lisa – it was just an observation. I’m honestly trying not to think of it in the context of “who has someone’s back”… but instead I’m trying to think of it as “who stood up and spoke the truth”… It kind of cracks me up a little, because Kyle knows that Lisa’s cranky with her because she didn’t stick up for her at the reunion and she wants to get back into her good graces, yet when Camille blurted out that Lisa didn’t own Villa Blanca… Kyle just sat there and said nothing – even though she had known forever that Lisa had a partner and knew what Camille was asserting was wrong.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Wasn’t it before that reunion that Kyle told Taylor on camera that “Lisa preys on the weak?” I also think the tea that was meant to confront Lisa for being…what was it Kyle said…”full of yourself?” I can’t remember. But I do remember how upset Kyle was that Taylor and LIsa kissed and made up at that tea. She looked exasperated, more than upset, rolling her eyes, hands in her face, etc. The tea that Taylor later revealed was meant to be a “let’s confront Lisa” tea. I don’t remember EVER seeing Kyle defend Lisa. I do remember Lisa being quick to side with Kyle. I admit, I could be wrong; I just don’t remember when Lisa might have offended Kyle in the same manner before that reunion. I’m clear as to when Kyle didn’t defend Lisa or when Kyle bad-mouthed Lisa on camera – that part, I do remember.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          I will add that Lisa is no angel. She plays the game very well. But from what I’ve seen, Lisa was a loyal friend to Kyle until she saw that Kyle could not be trusted. But Lisa isn’t perfect. I found her highly annoying in Paris with her dealings with Kim and not letting it go. Talking about her to Morris (with Kim sitting right there!!) was so disrespectful.

        • WindyCityWondering says:

          Kyle has finally realized that she is NOT the Queen Bee of this group. It is apparent that Brandi was the “breakout” star of last season and who also showed us exactly how you “stand up” for a friend even when you know you are going to be attack for it. Kyle has Adrienne (gone), Taylor (who is now seeing the hypocracy), Faye (who adds nothing positive to the show), Camille (gone) and the pickled franchise hijacker.
          Lisa dealt with Adienne and now she is dealing with Kyle – Lisa will be cordial but she will not put herself in a position to be used in the name of an agenda riddle friendship. Kyle can continue to justify her failure to be a good friend with her “but that is how I feel” crap and use her grudge excuses but at least she is aware that she has been “replaced” but she
          doesn’t get it that it is because of her behavior and her behavior alone.

        • Stars99 says:

          I think you’re so right.. and none of them are angels. I’ve always liked Lisa’s directness… and I honestly believe that she wouldn’t say something behind your back that she wouldn’t say to your face… I love that attribute in people. It’s why I really like Lisa, Yo and B… I think it was Adrienne who was whining about how Lisa says snarky things in her talking heads – but they all do… it’s kind of their job, no?

          • LaineyLainey says:

            They must go to a Bravo College (akin to Clown College? – I apologize to all clowns). yes, I think that’s covered in “Snarky Talking Heads 101” I think they all graduate with honors.

        • lillybee says:

          Who brought up the fact at that tea, that Lisa had a picture of herself on her IPhone ?

          • pat says:

            I think Taylor brought up that Lisa had a photo of herself as her screensaver on her Ipad.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            I can’t remember.

            • LaineyLainey says:

              I just found the video…http://www.bravotv.com/the-real-housewives-of-beverly-hills/season-2/blogs/troupe-beverly-hills/the-price-of-tea-in-beverly?page=0,3 where Taylor makes it obvious that Kyle’s been talking bad about her friend, Lisa. She reveals that Lisa supposedly said (to Kyle) that “Taylor has no friends”then she (Taylor) makes Kyle admit that she (Kyle) has said that Lisa has a big ego. Then Taylor comments that Lisa has herself as her screensaver. see if you can watch the video – it’s the first time that Lisa “gets it” that everyone has been speaking ill of her. She seems especially distressed to learn that Kyle has also been trashing her. Then Camille, in an attempt to not get thrown under the bus by Taylor, exposes the domestic abuse issue. (but that part is in another video).

  3. Powell says:

    Good morrrning everyone. Do you all spring forward ok? 🙂 I did just fine. Let’s see how that works out for me when I have to get up at 5. It looks like a great sunny day. I hope your weather is holding up. Have a great day.

    • california35 says:

      Have a great day also 🙂

    • Stars99 says:

      My spring has sprung… and my get up and go has got up and went… and I hanker for a hunk of cheese… (points for anyone who remembers this reference… lol)

    • Boobah says:

      Hi Powell! The time change mess me up a bit. I’m glad you did well with it! Sunny day here as well – at last! Have a great day!

  4. california35 says:

    Good morning and Happy SUNDAY 🙂

    That’s right!!! Time changed! Well, since i wake up at around 5:30 (waaaaaay to early) weekdays and weekends, it will now be 6:30 which make better sense. I just need to rember that and not try to go back to sleep as i usually do.

    NMD – i did not expect a new blog, you are on vaca 🙂

    ((( Lainey )))

    (((Nancy)))

  5. HuskerHuny says:

    It’s a snowin’ and a blowin’ here in Huskerland. No church for me today. I just put my big ol’ fluffy robe on and it’s going to be really hard to take it off because it feels so warm. We will get somewhere from 1-3 or 8-12 inches depending on what forecast you choose to believe. Just hope my husband can make it home from work later today safe and sound.

    Kyle – your character has been revealed concerning Lisa. She has chosen to keep you at arms length and rightfully so. You can’t go back and pretend you didn’t throw her under the bus not once but at least twice that we viewers have seen. Keep your buddy Faye close because she needs your coattails; Lisa doesn’t. Try some self-reflection about this situation and learn from it. I’m afraid that Lisa is pretty much over you and I don’t blame her one bit.

    I will give you credit for being what appears (at least for now) to be a good mother. Your older daughter chose to go to college and not follow in your niece Paris’ footsteps. Good for her! Maybe she got her good sense from her father.

    And one last thing concerning Kyle – man up and write a blog already and try to defend your actions. I’m thinking you can see just how bad you are coming off to the viewers and can’t explain it away. Your posse – Adrienne is gone; Taylor is a mess; Kim is a bigger mess and Faye is just nasty. What’s it like to be alone and not a part of the popular girls club? Doesn’t feel very good, huh. Learn from it.

    • Powell says:

      Husker more snow? Ugh. I feel for you. Stay warm & toasty.

      ITA about Kyle. The best thing about her right now is that she is great mom. If you don’t hear about 1 of her daughter’s in the media like we do her niece, that’s because she’s done a much better job than her big sis Kathy. Kyle has blown it as Lisa’s friend.If she can’t see it then there’s no hope of her & Lisa getting back to where they used to be.

    • california35 says:

      That is why she is trying to save her friendship with Lisa now, lol there is no one else any more. Too bad and too late, I was so disappointed when i saw how she slowly changed her ways with Lisa – “her friend” from the brining of the series to now. She is the one that has changed, NOT Lisa. From she doing to Lisa’s place with her little daughter. Just to visit, to later playing stupid little games like the one about holding hands with Tyler, then all in the reunion. Sorry, I am glad Lisa is done with her, and it annoys me when Kyle tries to talk to Lisa about their friendship. She should leave it alone, move on, continue communication with Lisa without pushing herself and see where friendship goes. Besides, everything she brings this up, she ends up offending Lisa again OR she cries.

    • Boobah says:

      Oh man, stay warm HH! LOL@ ‘man up’ to Kyle! I agree !

    • Kansas Girl says:

      Snow? So sorry! We’re getting rain and things are getting just a bit green. How can they do that so fast! It’s starting to feel like spring might really be around the corner.

  6. california35 says:

    Stars99 as usual fun read on your blogs recaps 🙂

    I hate also that i agree with Taylor, but she makes a lot of sense and she explains very well. Is it because what she is talking about isnt about her, that makes her see things from “outside” herself so she see things more clearly. I agree about Lisa and Kyle regarding Kim. I also wonder if Kim is just naturally a bit off now, and has clearer days when we think she is doing well, but those not so clear days and we think is because she is on “something”. There are people that naturally a bit awkward, then you add all those years of “using” that affected your brain AND affected your social skill by keeping away from people, etc etc then you end up with Kim. I say that in case she really wasn’t using anything on the trip. She had also just woken up and and rushed to get ready. Now i feel like i am making excuses for her, but i do feel for the group also. My goodness specially Kyle who has dealt with Kim for so long, only she knows all she has gone through. I am no Kyle fan, at all, but the part about dealing with Kim’s addiction does give me a soft spot for her.

    • Powell says:

      I know a lot of you were frustrated by Kim in Paris but I wasn’t because like you Cali I feel Kim’s addictions have affected her brain & it’s probably the way she will be for the rest of her life. I don’t think she was on anything that wasn’t prescribed & I can only imagine that jet lag may also affect an addicted brain. So I understand the ladies concern for her since most of them know how Kim is on vaca. Lisa did get on my nerves by not leaving it alone. Like Brandi said no one knows what Kim is going thru.

      • pat says:

        I know Kim is saying she took the wrong meds with her to Paris (which is hard to believe). I think she has multiple issues contributing to her flaky behavior. She has some arrested development from working her whole childhood. And after watching the Paris episode, I was thinking maybe she also has agoraphobia. She never wants to leave her home or her hotel room. I think she might have over-medicated, to handle the stress of having to go out and be social.

    • Stars99 says:

      Hi, my neighbor… yeah, I think you and Powell have some great points… Kim came out last week and said that she had taken the wrong medications on the trip with her but that she didn’t find out about it until she got back from the trip. Having said that… I want to give her the benefit of the doubt… but how can you have the wrong medications? Especially during a time when you’re supposed to be very careful about taking ANY medications – heck, she threw a fit that Lisa inferred she had taken a sleeping pill… holy cow…

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        Any time I have had a BAD reaction to a prescription drug – stop taking it and talk to your doctor immediately. THEN you either dispose of that drug or bring it in and let the doctor dispose of it! Have to call BS on Kim’s “excuse” for her continuing bizzare behavior.

        • Stars99 says:

          Yeah… I’m afraid you’re probably right… I think if Kim had said that she had taken a double dose (cuz it’s easy to forget when you’ve taken your last dose sometimes, especially if you don’t have that Prada pill case that was suggested last week) it would be more understandable to me… but since she said she actually brought the “wrong” medication on the trip… who does that? Because really, you don’t change medication just before a trip… so she had to know what the pills looked like, no?

          • pat says:

            I wonder if we’ll learn more about the meds situation next week, since in her blog Yolanda said something about trying to call home to Kim’s Doc to figure out what was happening with that. She was pretty cryptic, but insinuated that Kim now isn’t happy with her.

          • Kansas Girl says:

            I found her explanation confusing in her blog. If I remember, she first said she called in a doctor because she was feeling so bad and that was when she figured out she had the wrong meds. But then she said she didn’t figure it out till she got home and talked to her doctor. I would think if she figured it out in Paris, she’d have fixed it.

            Regarding her not remembering Yo’s help in Paris. The other day someone suggested that Kim may no longer have the ability to remember things and she depends on other’s (Kyle’s) interpretations. So it may be that she simply doesn’t remember that Yolanda was helpful. Memory failure could explain a lot. Maybe this is why she looks at those family photos so much — she’s rehearsing the stories so she can remember.

        • Powell says:

          I have experienced that twice, once w/a migraine med & another a pain med after surgery. The migraine med,Maxalt made me feel very weird like my head was swimming. My doc gave me a lower dosage. The pain med I can’t remember what the name is but it,made me constipated. I couldn’t figure it out until I went for ny post op check up & my doc told me it was the meds. That’s a horrible feeling. 🙂

          • LaineyLainey says:

            not a good combination…foggy brain and constipated. That’s enough to send one over the edge.

      • Powell says:

        We all know Kim is flighty. I suppose her doc said “Kim you take pill (a) at this time, you take (b) at this time. I can imagine she brought the wrong pills or forgot the right pills.

    Good morning from Wise, VA. It’s a balmy 55 degrees here right now. Woo hoo! Don’t give a flying fig about those Atlanta housewives and their strippers (that’s getting a little old isn’t it?). I’m looking forward to another episode of The Walking Dead and I get to watch with my DD tonight. Yay! Can’t wait. Hope everyone has a great Sunday.

    • Stars99 says:

      Can you get wiser from living in Wise, VA? Cuz if so, I need to move. Perhaps it’s like the old adage, “you are what you eat” or “you are where you live”… wait… I live in Orange County… what does that make me? {shudders}

    • Powell says:

      I caught up on WD a few hrs ago. We finally know where what’s his name is. He’s cookoo but he’s alive. I’m glad Carl was able to get the family pic & that Michonne helped him. We finally saw a smidgen of a soft side of Michonne. Tonight is going to be good.

    Hugs to LainyLainy – so nice we say it twice… so sorry for your loss, my friend.

  10. Mene Seela says:

    Good day everyone. Yuck – I hate the time changes!

    Kim Richards, I have known people who have dicontinued their medications or quit drinking and they still aren’t *all there*. Maybe they never were or the connections inside their brain are permanently re-routed.

    Lisa, she can do no wrong in my eyes. I do see she is imperious. But that is what we expect in our Queen.

    Kyle, I still like her. I don’t see her as vile or dark, just immature and she constantly requires some person as a project – someone she swoops in to protect, nuture and rehabilitate.
    I think it’s obvious that rehabbing damaged people is Kyle’s “calling”; Taylor, Kim and probably Faye too. Faye was probably the underdog during the OJ trial so Kyle adopted her.

    When Kyle says to Lisa “You took care of it yourself, you didn’t need me to stick up for you…” I think Kyle is being truthful. To Kyle, Lisa is strong while Kyle protects broken people. If Lisa lost all of her money and Ken dumped her Kyle would be RightThere for her, because Lisa *needed her*.

    That’s what I see on my tv.

    • Rebecca says:

      Adrienne never needed Kyle to speak for her but Kyle was willing, ready and able. She also had reinforcements in Mo-money-reese and TheMorallyCurruptFayeResnick. Anytime Adrienne was brought p, she should have said she didn’t feel comfortable tithe conversation because Adrienne wasn’t there to defend herself. Yet, every time she was with Adrienne she bragged how she was defending her. You CANNOT tell me the wicked witches weren’t skewering Lisa off camera and there is no bragging to Lisa how she is always defending her like she does with Adrienne.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        People who are “rehabbing” do not need a Kyle in their lives. Kim, herself, said that Kyle is a trigger to her. Kim was Kyle’s reason for getting sympathy from others. Kyle meant well, I think. But Kyle is not good for broken people who are rehabbing, in my opinion.

        • Mene Seela says:

          True dat!
          However inside Kyle’s head she is being a saint. She is just as messed up as Kim and Taylor but it presents differently. That’s why I can’t hate on her.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            yes, Kyle is immovable in the idea that she is only trying to help. 🙂 It’s nice that you can’t hate on her, Mene. I don’t hate her, either. But I don’t like the way she handles her relationships with Lisa or Kim.. or the way she cannot or will not acknowledge any wrongdoing, ever. Maybe she was raised that it was a sign of weakness to admit when you’re wrong. But she should leave things alone instead of insisting that she’s right all the time. “Lisa, let’s move forward now – on my terms!!” “Kim, be healed when I say!! The way I say!”

    • pat says:

      I think Kyle went beyond not sticking up for Lisa when she needed her. She sided with people who were threatened by Lisa. She sided with Adrienne at the reunion, and with Taylor, etc., at the tea party (although she caved on that one when Lisa held her own so well, and the discussion became about Taylor instead).

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        When one of my friends is getting hammered by another in a conversation and she is holding her own – I have no problem and will always support them and ask the offending party to knock it off. Lisa can defend herself but what she was trying to tell Kyle that it is nice to have an encouraging word of support in an awkward situation.

    • Powell says:

      Lisa did handle it but if I was sitting there I would have jumped in and said “now Camille why are you saying that? You know as well as most of us here that Lisa & en are partners in Sur. We’ve met her partners”. That’s all Lisa was looking for.

  11. Boobah says:

    Great blog! Unexpected treat!

    SUPERstars99 – awesome recap of the BH blogs!! I guess Kim is on Yo’s bad side! Yikes! IMO, Kyle seems like a coward. She won’t write a blog because she can’t take the heat. I doubt it ever occurred to her to read them and learn something!

    I responded to you upthread – Hankerin’ for a hunka cheese!! PSA from the 8o’s You MADE MY DAY with that reference! I still say things from those PSA’s! How about the one about the Bill trying to become a Law? Oh, too funny! 😀

  12. WindyCityWondering says:

    Watching the preview for the end of the Paris trip again – Kim really wants to start something with Lisa (like telling Lisa to shut up when Kim sat down next to Lisa and Klye on the boat) and Lisa just won’t buy into it. Kim can say what she wants but Lisa is not going to pretend that Kim is alright. As for Lisa giving Mauricio a heads up at the duck dinner, at the end of the day, Kyle and Mauricio are the correct people to corral and monitor Kim’s behavior. I give Yolanda a pass on what she said about Lisa because Yolanda has not experienced the BSC Kim Richards yet.

    • pat says:

      It’s one thing I can now give Kyle a pass on. She got so much flack from viewers wondering why she and her family were not helping Kim. You can’t force an addict to see their problem and get help. We can see how Kim strikes back at anyone who questions her sobriety. She will come after you if you don’t pretend all is well and good with her. We saw it with her grudge against Brandi (which I still think she’s holding onto). And now with Lisa pointing out that Kim did not spend the entire day with her and Ken. Just the morning. She was pissed! Now Lisa is on her sh*t list.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        Kim easily branded Lisa “a mean girl” because she wouldn’t go along with Kim’s altered reality and apparent loss of an afternoon. Kim has every right to be unhappy that maybe the cast is questioning her “sobriety” but I wonder if there is something to it and that is why she throwing out her excuses for her off behavior (wrong meds), learned talking points about her new life, and that others will be the reason for any failure on her part, etc. Kyle seems frozen in fear because she has no idea which Kim will surface at any given time but she knows she has to support her and talk her down without setting her further off.

    • nyc mama says:

      I agree. Kyle and Mauricio are the correct people to deal with this, not Yolanda. I disagree with her on her criticism of Lisa not calling Kim the next to check on her. That isn’t Lisa’s role nor her responsibility. I am sure Yolanda knew that she was spending her morning with Kyle and Mauricio and herself so why should Lisa call her to check on her after her behavior the night before. It was clear that whatever Lisa would do would be met by criticism. That doesn’t prove anything as Yolanda was alluding to but I also agree that Yolanda had no idea how damaged Kim is and how she has ruined every road trip on this series with her illness, inesecurities and now her neediness.

      Ironic how Kim claims Lisa stirs the pot when she has been the one all season to cause friction between others and then steps away to let everyone else battle it out.

      I wish Kim well but I don’t want to continue to be subjected to her and her storyline. If she is back next year I am not sure I will be even though I love watching the dynamic between Yolanda, Lisa and Brandi.

      An aside, I wonder if Kyle hi-fived Adrienne for her comments about Lisa’s restaurant or if she actually called her out for her bad behavior.

      • iceNfire says:

        I’ve had it with Kim I wish her well but see no reason to subject viewers to this storyline.
        I read a comment on Bravo sit that said Kyle ‘s goal all along has been to take down Lisa. She was not capable of going after Lisa directly so she went after Brandi via Fayekr. Kyle allowed Fayekr to verbally attack Brandi in Kyle’s on home. Kyle brought Fayekr to Lisa home for Tea Party knowing full well F wasn’t invited. Kyle is no dummy and see’s clearly that as long as Lisa has Brandi as a friend there is no knocking Lisa down. Throw Yo into the mix and Kyle should just call it quits.

        • Powell says:

          I don’t understand why Kyle wanted to take down Lisa. It just doesn’t make sense. Kyle totally let FayeK go after Brandi & what I really thought Kyle had nerve with was to say to Brandi “I’m sorry this happened at my house”.. WHat bi*ch? So would you prefer that it happened at someone else’s house? That really pissed me off because it’s like she condones FayeK’s behavior. And then when FayeK said “Kyle I’m sorry. I hope you don’t blame me…” & Kyle said “I don’t blame you”. Again. What bi*ch? And now she has the nerve to say to Lisa “I feel you only have time for Brandi. You’ve replaced me”. Damn right. Brandi may be loud & oversteps but she never lies & will back her friends.

          • iceNfire says:

            imo – It’s all about money with Kyle and Morris. Adri has more money than Lisa (thus far) so siding with Adri who was the one that wanted to take Lisa down in the 1st place (jealousy) was the goal of the used car salesman. He wanted the client with the most money in his corner. imo

  13. nyc mama says:

    Dave Broome‏@broome88
    @AdrienneMaloof @jen_styles @tobeyong great seeing u last night. Looking forward to showing and telling the next chapter of your life.

    So it seems that Adrienne is working on her own show with the producer of the Biggest Loser. Would you watch Adrienne on her own show? I know that I wouldn’t. IMO there is absolutely nothing interesting about her or her life that warrants her own show.

  14. Hey Stars99…just getting caught up reading your blog recap. Thanks for another great one!

    I know I have said it before, but I am really still p.o’d at Bravo for stringing Kim’s addiction story line out like it is just someone’s hang nail problem. This is a serious issue…and I know Kim chooses to be on the show….but Bravo should say NO! Kyle should support that as well. Kim is clearly having issues and needs to be away from cameras and in a safe environment so she can get a handle on herself…not traipsing all over the world with “mixed up meds”. This whole thing could set her way back in her recovery. I hope she is doing better now as it takes a loooong time to recover from an addiction that she has had for a long time.

    Having said that, I know first hand how crazy making it is to be close to someone in a shaky recovery. Things just do not look the same to them as they do to you and it can make the non-addicted person feel like THEY are the crazy ones. It is a very precarious fine line to walk between caring/helping and exasperation.

    I truly hope that Bravo lets Kim go and does not bring her back next season so she can get a better grip on her life and recovery. Kyle should go too and get a grip…on something. Let us have our “fun franchise” back! This is not supposed to be an addiction recovery reality show. I believe Dr. Drew does those…not the HW’s!

    OK….I just realized I went on a rant! LOL! Sorry! 😛

    Back to your regularly scheduled blog! Love you all! 😀

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Am I the only one who thinks that “Kim’s road back t sobriety” storyline is anything but that? She was too soon out of rehab to return to the show, she elected to have cosmetic surgery for something that never bothered her before but would allow for the legitimate use of narcotics, her half truths regarding sobriety, how various meds work or constitute a relapse yet she couldn’t even bring the correct meds during the evening she stayed up til 3am packing for the trip. Taylor stayed home to spend time with her daughter, maybe Kim should have stayed home to spend time with her ghosts, pictures and life coach.

      • nyc mama says:

        Spot on. Kim shouldn’t have been on this show period, now her family and friends should be encouraging her new sobriety not participating on a reality show that thrives on conflict and bad behavior. Jennifer Giminez was correct at the dinner in Las Vegas with all she said, and as one who knows, Kyle should have been listening to her. She didn’t. The only thing Kyle is capable of is making everything about her including Kim’s sobriety or perhaps lack of it.

        My heart goes out to Kim’s children. They seemingly have grown up well in spite of their mothers problems and they have a level of maturity only seen in children of addicts who have had to grow up quickly. They probably mothered her more than Kim mothered them.

      • Nancy says:

        I wish I could remember the long list of meds she listed off while seeing Dr Paul last season. This is the problem….most psychiatrists don’t know a thing about recovery so I’m sure she’s still taking meds that alter her behavior and not in a good way. She needs to see an addictionologist.

    • california35 says:

      Well said –

      And they both need help on a different way. They both feel like victims and they both have done wrong. It does not need to be on camera. I dont want to see it. I they want to have it in camera and make money, they can have that on their own little show that i wont watch.

    Hiiiiii everyone!! Hope you all are having a fun weekend. Its sunny and cold here in Cali. Idk if I will be able to chat about Atlanta tonight. I have a date and I am trying sooooo hard to NOT be nervous! I read about your dog Lainey, my grandmas dog is named Daisy too! I’m sorry about your Daisy though 😦 I hope your feeling a little better too Nancy!! Also Idk if everyone saw the pic of Adrienne BEFORE surgery on Lynns Facebook fan page and to me she is unrecognizable!! Wish me luck tonight that I don’t puke before my date! Ha! XO!

  17. Powell says:

    I’m watching Atlanta w/Porsche watching baby Jayden. She leaves Jayden on the bed w/the dog. So the dog can catch her if she roles off the bed. She tells Jayden to sit on the step ladder & Jayden stands on it & looks like she could fall. Porsche was not doing a good job of watching the baby. I just kept seeing the possibilty of the baby hurting herself.

  18. Powell says:

    I’m watching Atlanta. I love Kandi but she’s wrong. If dinner was at 9 don’t show up to my house at midnight. They are lucky NeNe answered the door cause I would not. Family or friends. 3hrs is too late & disrespectful.

    • Laineylainey says:

      I agree. I also found it extra dextra annoying that kandi started speaking all SLANG when they weren’t allowed in. She continued in that vein when they got back in the limo. And then the story she told about passing gas. I have never found her to be too terribly annoying…but after that episode, she grossed me out.

  19. iceNfire says:

    Interesting that Bravo site is still approving negative comments to Kyle’s blog. Bravo isn’t happy with her and I’m wondering if they are taking these comments into consideration of whetheror not they will invite her back next season. No comments would mean no viewers but she has close to 1,200 comments on a blog she wrote Feb. 19th and we all know Bravo likes drama.

    • BB says:

      She will definitely be back IMO.

      Kenya Moore and Brookly Decker will be on WWHL tonight if anyone cares.
