Kim Richards

Kyle Should be Worried, Not Embarrassed

Kim tells us she would have named this episode “Awkward”.  She makes a little joke about it says she has to laugh in the end.  Funny, I really saw nothing funny about this episode.  Sad?  Yes.  Funny?  No.

From the limo to the spa to the wine tasting, there was literally alcohol everywhere in this episode. But I am so strong in my sobriety today and know how to handle situations like this. I removed myself from the situation and was fine the whole trip. It was AWKWARD only because the people made the situation awkward by constantly checking in on me. While I am appreciative of everyone’s concern, I just want them to trust me when I say, “I’m totally fine. It doesn’t bother me.” Overall, the spa day was perfectly fine and fun.

I’m gonna stick to my guns and say it is not appropriate to put Kim in situations where she is surrounded by booze.  It is irresponsible of her “friends” and production to put her into that situation.  It shows ZERO respect for her sobriety.  Kim is only a little over a year sober and I know recovered alcoholics that have made it 10+ years and still avoid situations where the booze is flowing.  She also shares that she thinks Brandi’s vagina chatter is funny.  I think Kim is a recovering alcoholic AND a very poor judge of character.

OK—now here’s the back story to the whole poker night debacle. Before the poker party took place, I had been struggling with bronchitis and pneumonia for weeks. I went to the doctor several times because I was in so much pain, so I really was in no shape to go to the spa day or poker night. And I definitely didn’t want to go out when Monty came back to the house before poker night after being gone for a couple days. I just wanted to stay at home with him, but I had to go to Eileen’s with the girls. I took the pain medication from Monty thinking it can get me through the pain I was experiencing. Little did I know, it just made me kind of out of it! But seriously, if I knew the medication was going to affect me in a negative way, I would have NEVER taken it. Careless decision on my part—lesson learned! Also, I was hurt that all Kyle could say was how embarrassed she was. As a sister, I would be worried, not embarrassed. I’m just grateful that Brandi was a good friend and supported me. What I don’t understand is why so many of the girls tried to make me stay when all I wanted to do was go home and rest after it got AWKWARD. Why would anyone want to make the situation worse after me and Kyle’s bathroom confrontation? Sometimes, we all just have to “let it go.”

Oy vay.  Now we are on “The Lame Excuse Train”.  Kim is gonna claim she had bronchitis and pneumonia, YET, I watched this episode TWICE and never once heard her cough or blow her nose.  She didn’t look lethargic.  We saw this in past seasons where she was filled with excuses when she was drunk/high.  Remember when she told Kyle she thought she was preggers?  So, Monty gave her “something” but she has no idea what it was.  Um, so when you got home, you didn’t ask?  You didn’t check the bottle?  Does she think I am stupid?  She goes on to criticize Kyle for being embarrassed.  I WASN’T THERE AND I WAS EMBARRASSED.  And to say Kyle wasn’t concerned just shows how Kim is so selfish and self absorbed (which is part of addiction).  She thinks Brandi is a “good friend” yet Brandi enables her and admits to drinking large sums of alcohol in front of her.  Yes, that sounds like a great friend to me.

In the next episode you will see that I end up in the hospital with major injuries due to being sick, but because of my history, some people will automatically assume one thing, even though they have seen nothing but strength and courage in my sobority for the last three years. To quote myself, if I may, “I have nothing to hide from anybody.” I’m glad I’m able to tell my side of the story here. Despite all the AWKWARD drama between Kyle, me, and Brandi, I just want to focus on staying healthy, strong, and happy for myself and my loved ones! Until next time!

Unless Kim is hospitalized because her lungs shut down due to her fictionalized bronchitis and pneumonia, I am calling BULLSHIT.  Yes, we have seen Kim face this with strength and courage over the years.  As I have said before, I have nothing but respect for people who are battling addiction and winning.  Kim has shown us what a recovering addict can do.  BUT, I think not owning her relapse is not healthy.

Brandi Glanville

Kyle Wants To Help When There’s An Audience

Newsflash: I’M NOT SOBER, and fantasies are just that–fantasies. I’ve just about HAD IT with these judgmental women that pretend to be perfect and think they do no wrong. Spa day was fine other than the uncomfortable wine tasting, but I tried to tell some jokes to loosen the mood.

Well, thank God she cleared that up.  I was terribly worried that Brandi was in fact sober for this whole episode and perhaps aliens had abducted her during the night and stolen what was left of her brain and left a self absorbed shell of a human being.  My bad.

Poker night…Kyle called me and asked me to bring champagne in the car for the ride over to poker night at Eileen’s, and we shared one bottle. I generally drink wine, not champagne, and was feeling good. As all of my friends have pointed out to me, it’s the third glass that usually takes me to the dark side. Kyle had as much to drink as I did, but it didn’t seem to affect her. I guess she must have a really HIGH tolerence. Eileen’s house is beautiful on the outside–and it may be a dick thing to say–but creepy on the inside in my opinion. I switched over to white wine, and while there were a few appetizers (one made with kids’ frozen mini pancakes and oddly colored salmon), there really wasn’t much to eat, and it was dinner time after all.

OH, so it was cause you had champagne instead of wine.  I get it.  Champagne turns you into an asshole.  But wait, what about all the other times we saw you drinking wine and you were an asshole?  Oh, and nice dig at Kyle saying she must have a HIGH tolerance.  I imagine Kyle might have had a nice dinner with her family before she left for Poker Night knowing full well that she was gonna consume some booze and didn’t want to make a fool of herself on an empty tummy.  Once they all sit to learn poker (after politely complimenting Eileen on her decorating choices), Brandi says she was drunk AND hungry.  She then goes to say these “smart” women act like poker is rocket science.  Well, to tell you the truth, poker is a very challenging game.  It involves several thought processes.  One must observe body language, take in other people’s hands and pay attention to what has been dealt.  I think Kyle and Lisa actually wanted to LEARN the game rather than just play for fun since they did have a real poker expert willing to teach them.  She tells us when Kim came out of the bathroom with Kyle, that Kim wanted Kyle to “leave her alone”.  Um, Kim followed Kyle INTO the bathroom; she wasn’t dragged in there by her hair.  Brandi then jumped right in to rescue Kim.  Right.  Cause if I am in a bad place, I want the drunkest person in the room to help me out.

Kyle only wants to “help” Kim when Kyle has an audience. In that moment of time, Kim was not in the right state of mind or condition to have any kind of conversation or altercation, yet Kyle persisted, even going as far as getting physical and grabbing me twice, as well as breaking my skin open to keep me from removing Kim from this bad situation. So ask yourself this question: If Kyle was so worried and embarrassed about Kim’s behavior, then why wouldn’t she just let me get Kim home and out of this embarrassing situation? Even in my intoxicated state, I knew that was the only solution. Kyle, while planes and yachts are nice, if family is everything, how could you treat your sister Kim the way you do?

So, Kyle broke your skin open now?  Really?  You were mortally wounded yet you still had the strength to push Kyle away and down a stair.  Very classy.


Eileen Davison

Brandi Loves to Stir the Pot

Eileen begins her blog telling us how beautiful Yolanda’s daughters are.  Yes, they are gorgeous, but they only get to eat an almond every day and if that’s what makes you pretty, I will continue to eat cake.

Vincent and I thought it would be fun and different to have a poker tournament with the ladies. My husband knows poker inside and out, and it’s a huge opportunity to have someone like him actually teach you how to play. We’ve done parties like this before, and it really can be such a good time…so much for that. Vincent tried so hard to keep things light and fun, but the wheels started falling off the bus right away.

Its always so sweet to see the naivety of a newbie.  Poor Eileen had no idea what she was inviting into her home.  She shares that she could tell something was “off” with Kim from the get-go.  She says Kim was aggressive to everyone, but most especially towards Kyle

Then to find out she took someone else’s pain medication? Mixing that kind of emotional turmoil with meds that aren’t prescribed for you cannot be a good combination. 

Screenshot 2015-01-25 12.59.59 (Small)

Um, no.  Not so much.  Not cool for Monty to allegedly OFFER up his pain meds to a recovering addict either (about as cool as offering to have Kim smell your delicious wine though).

Brandi says she wants to help Kim, but it seems that she really wants to make the situation worse. I don’t get this chick. Why is she trying to drive a wedge between Kim and Kyle? Especially from their car ride over together where Kyle spoke in such a loving and concerned way about her sister, and Brandi seemed to appreciate that. Then she gets to our home and turns on Kyle.

Welcome to the Real Housewives Eileen.  There will always be one cast member per city that no one “gets”.  Brandi is toxic.

Obviously, Brandi loves to stir the pot. I guess she gets a kick out of being provocative and saying mean and nasty things. As far as her comments about our home? I thought it was comical that she mentioned Norman Bates, considering she’s the one that’s acting psycho.

These women are way more gracious than I.  If this dingbat came into my home and started insulting my home (and didn’t she walk around Carlton’s Haunted Castle last year and LOVE it?), I would kindly show her skinny ass the door.

I didn’t see what happened between Brandi and Kyle in our entryway until I watched the episode. Scary. The evening has spiraled completely out of control. It doesn’t appear that things will get any better next week…OMG!

You are right Eileen.  This coming episode appears to be where the shit hits the fan, but what I am looking forward to the most is Vincent watching the driveway battle from the window of his garage!  Did anyone else catch this on last week’s episode?  You can see Vincent’s face in the garage window (remember when Chris watched Tre, Jac and Caro fight on his deck?).  Its hilarious and was pretty much the highlight of the whole episode for me.

Lisa Vanderpump

Kim’s Demeaner was Questionable

I bet Lisa is thanking her lucky stars she chose Cabo over a poker lesson.

We start with a day trip to the spa. It was a pleasant day, and I don’t for a minute believe Kyle intended to embarrass her sister or lead her into temptation with regard to the wine tasting. It was unfortunate circumstances, and I thought Kim reacted accordingly and seemed to deal with it appropriately. The car ride to the spa where we are all confined was a different matter. There we have it: the need to shock once more in Brandi’s’s graphic detail of her fantasy. I don’t find anything she says remotely amusing, stimulating, or even vaguely interesting, just always provocative, trying to elicit a reaction.

OH!  Lisa is the first to mention “the fantasy” and let me share, I sat watching this with my mouth open.  Had it been summer, it would have filled with flies.  I was aghast (I have never had the opportunity to use that word but I think it is appropriate here!).  When that is your fantast, how can you be terribly surprised your husband and boyfriends bring another woman into their beds?  Lisa talks of the car rides to Eileen’s home (AKA Norman Bate’s Home) and the odd behaviors of Kim.

I cannot fathom how one can arrive–with the knowledge that every moment will be recorded, documented in front of millions, where they are absolutely positive that interactions in a group setting are required–without one’s faculties, albeit due to drink or drugs and not expect people to comment on irrational and volatile behavior.

AMEN!  I still am baffled when these ladies act surprised in their blogs that they are being judged for their behavior.  If you don’t want to be judged, get your ass off reality tv OR stop handing people things to talk about!

I do recall a similar situation, myself, two years ago in Paris, where Kim’s demeanor was questionable, her words were slurring and she was not herself. I made the mistake of suggesting she had taken a sleeping pill to combat the demands of jet lag, almost hoping that this would be a legitimate and understandable explanation for her bizarre behavior. I was met with an angry response–how dare I insinuate that she was not committed to her sobriety? But her actions spoke otherwise.

Well, same thing here.  Kim becomes VERY defensive when her sobriety is questioned and it is VERY obvious that she is not sober.  We saw in this episode that many of the ladies came right out and asked her.  Again, addiction is a beast.  Anyone who fights the beast and can keep him at bay is a winner in my book.

My point being is if we subject our friends to questionable conduct, aren’t we therefore justified to call it out as Lisa R. did in the car?

Yup.  I have called out people in my life on their addiction.  Not because I wish to embarrass them, but because I respect their sobriety and want to support it.  Lisa makes it very clear that she supports Kim’s sobriety unequivocally.  She was saddened after watching game night.  She was also reminded of the last game night and how she thankfully missed that one, too.  She tells us she loved her vacation with Pandora, Jason, her brother, Giggy and Ken.  I wish I was on that vaca, too.

Loved seeing those beautiful girls, that I have adored for quite a few years now, as they start their modeling careers in New York.

<snore> guess she had to add something about Yolanda.  Boring.

I have to say I was disheartened to see the animosity at Eileen’s house who had obviously gone to a great deal of trouble to create a fabulous evening. She is a sweet woman with a dear of a husband, and I believe they were unprepared for the nastiness that ensued. It was startling, but I understood Kyle’s frustration as she attempted to communicate with Kim, only to be blocked by Brandi. Kyle obviously, with years of experiencing situations like this, resented Brandi physically blocking her attempt to reach her sister.

It is very different to love a person living with addiction.  It doesn’t just affect the addict.  There is a wave that hits everyone in its sights.  Kim’s kids, husbands, siblings, etc. have all been deeply and profoundly changed by this beast.  For Brandi to suggest that she “knows” Kim better or that Kyle only wants Kim around for a storyline is just sickening.  When you have lived around a person with addiction, even after they are in recovery, you will be always on alert for the next relapse.  It is constant.  The phone rings and Kyle sees Kim’s name on her caller ID and I can bet dollars to donuts that her first thought is, “Something has happened!”  Remember, Kim was an addict a lot longer than she has been in recovery.  We now see that the we are veering into Crazy Town with Brandi as it’s mayor.  Cuckoo LaRue is going to go head to head with Kyle.  This cannot end well.


Lisa Rinna

It Felt Just as Awkward as it Looked

Lisa realizes they just went from 0-60 in no time flat.  Last week was all sweet and emotional and this week, well, the shit gets real.

Needless to say, the rides to and from Santa Barbara were full of crazy conversations. Is it strange to anyone else that we keep talking about grooming habits down there? Seems to be an oddly recurring theme. Anyway, I thought the lunch and wine tasting actually went rather well, all things considered. All of us were concerned about how Kim felt being put into this situation. Like I mentioned, I didn’t know where Kim was in her sobriety at that point with being around alcohol or others drinking it in front of her. I thought she handled it well by knowing when to excuse herself, as I’m sure the whole situation made her uncomfortable. And I certainly know how uncomfortable Kyle was. She really had no idea the lunch would center around drinking. Overall, I’d say the whole trip to Santa Barbara was a success.

I still stand firm in my belief that someone should have put an end to the wine tasting before it even started.  These are strong women and I am not sure why no one spoke up and just said, “Sorry, we would rather have a sit down lunch then a wine tasting.”  I’m not sure if production doesn’t allow this or if everyone is trying to be polite, but if being polite puts your friend at risk, I say its time to be a little rude.  I will say I don’t think Kyle thought it would be this way at all and felt horribly that it went the way it did, but she could have easily removed herself and Kim from the situation by moving to a table away from the group and eating a regular lunch OR booking an additional spa service.  Just my two cents.  Lisa moves on to chat about the most awkward car ride in housewife history.  From the moment Lisa got in the car, there was something so very wrong with Kim.  Lisa did her best to try and change the topic and keep Kim from attacking her.  I might have just asked the driver to pull over and hop out.

Before we dive deeper into the chaos of the night, I have to say that Vinny is quickly becoming one of my favorites. He’s just so charming and funny, and I love watching him and Eileen banter back and forth. They are such a dynamic couple. Unfortunately, what started as a lovely evening hosted by this fabulous couple quickly disintegrated into a mess of strange behavior. Who knew sitting around a poker table would send some of the girls to the dark side? The repetitive use of the word ‘stupid’ was absolutely unacceptable, though not altogether surprising as Kim and Brandi’s behavior speaks for itself.

I’m still shocked that these ladies do not kick people out of their houses.  If someone came into my home and started insulting my decorating, I would not so kindly ask them to get the hell out!  Who does that?  I am really starting to question Brandi’s parents because those are the people in our lives who teach us basic manners.  My mom always told me, “If you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything at all.”  Did Brandi’s parents say, “Verbal diarrhea is totally acceptable”?

That’s all superficial level stuff though that can roll off my back. The part that’s really hard was to watch Kyle realize with both fear and confusion what was going down in front of her own eyes. Kyle is no stranger to this complicated road she’s been down before with Kim, and I know what a deep relationship the two sisters have, so I really feel for her.

Honestly, I felt worse for Kyle then for Kim.  Kim chose to take a drug that she shouldn’t have.  Kyle did not choose to spend her evening watching her sister disintegrate in front of her.

Kyle shocked face

Kyle Richards

This Was Brandi’s Master Plan

Kyle starts off chatting about the spa visit.  It was great until there was no lunch served; only wine.  Oh, and a smoothie for Kim.  Kyle tells us she offered to leave with Kim, but she insisted she was fine.  (As we know now, she was not fine.)

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.

The rude comments that Brandi made really do completely erase her apology for the wine toss.

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.

After watching the whole episode you now see that Brandi was really playing Kyle in the car ride home.  I am sure everything Kyle said was going to be repeated back to Kim in a negative way.

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.”

If anyone was jealous, I would have to guess it would be Kim.  Kyle has a beautiful family with a supportive husband and is financially stable.  Kim, on the other hand, is not financially stable.  She does not own her home and I imagine she has little to no savings.

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

DING DING DING!!!  Kyle hit the nail on the head.

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.

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 believe Kim became mad at Kyle after going into the bathroom and THEN being pulled aside by Brandi and “reminded” how Kyle does not support her and really doesn’t want her to be successful.  I think Kim is VERY easily manipulated and Brandi is more than happy to oblige.

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.

I did not see anything in Kyle’s behavior that required Brandi to push her the way she did.  Yes, I would push someone’s hands off of me, but she pushed her with both her hands and pushed her down a stair (I think).

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.

Agreed.  I couldn’t agree more with Kyle on this.  Kim was being manipulated.  Of course there are issues between Kim and Kyle that will always remain on or below the surface, but if someone like Brandi stirs the pot, well, the shit hits the fan!  Still, the best part of these scene was Vincent watching the whole thing unravel from the garage window.  I wish he had a thought bubble above his head.  Kyle says this is the end of her friendship with Brandi (although I don’t there ever really was a friendship.  I think Kyle kept Brandi at arms length and repeated the mantra, “Keep your friends close and your enemies closer).  I guess the rest of the season is going to be Brandi bashing Kyle and convincing Kim that Kyle doesn’t want her sober or happy.  Sigh.

Things that make me happy about this episode…

Yolanda never once complained that Lisa didn’t invite her to Pump, her Star, her closet, her dentist appointment, her mammogram, etc.

Brandi didn’t offer to perform cunnilingus on anyone.

We all got to see Giggy in all his nekkid glory!

Lisa Rinna should be invited to every event.  Like every event ever.

Vincent watching the girl fight from the safety of his garage.

  1. I gotta agree Veena…something smells fishy about Brandi and Kim’s blog.

  2. ladebra says:

    Agreat job Namaste! I got sick of the fake drama and missed Giggy, now I’m going to have to on demand it, and won’t be able to fast forward. That makes me sad.

    Hope all you guys in the path of the storm have a snuggle buddy and lots of wine. Be safe! ❄️

  3. Shiny says:

    I really enjoy reading your thoughts on the posts by BH ladies (and non-ladies). I laugh and nod my head and laugh again and shake my head at those behaviors on TV. Much more fun having you share it like a BFF sitting down over coffee (it’s morning, after all) than it ever would be just reading their blogs (and I never bother). Hilarious – and truth.

  4. Great job on blogs – favorite day of the week, chi chi chi!

  5. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. Snow snow snow. UGH!! 😖 I’m glad we didn’t get hit bad. I hope you all are ok. Poor Boston. Just crazy 23 inches was it? Be careful out there.
    Kyle’s face in the pic above says it all. She looks shell shocked like “oh sh*t. Here we go again!” Bobble’s explanation in the article I think JNNTJ posted, she says Kyle grabbed her and she felt a scratch so it pissed her off. 😝😝😝 BULL!! All I know is Kyle should have punched her. I tell you Bobble is the only one that makes me want to punch her. 😉

    Hoping all of you east coasters are warm and cozy! Not to pour salt in your wound, but my neighbor was raking his yard yesterday, said he ran out of time last fall. Then he pulled out the lawnmower to pick up what was left. I’m watching an all-out blizzard on TV and through my window I’m watching my neighbor mowing his yard – in January! Crazy world! It’s going to be 60 degrees here today and tomorrow, but snow is in the forecast this weekend, but nothing like you guys are getting. Stay inside and stay warm and dry!

    Oh, and by the way, giving your Schedule II drug to someone other than the person with the prescription is technically a felony! Just Sayin! Fact is, SpaceCadetDrugAddictDrunkKim knew fully well what she was taking, she is a drug and alcohol addict, those folks know more about scamming drugs/alcohol for themselves than others. Ask the folks here on the boards who are dealing with this situation, they are connivers when it comes to getting their “fix”. I want to hear from KYLE what really went down in that hospital, as I have heard from a source at the time, that SpaceCadetDrugAddictDrunkKim was in there to fix her boob job, not bronchitis or any other actual illness, but I will wait for Kyle to say something since she would know. Loving that TrampEileen(or is just because I love her husband), I would have spun around to that IDIOT THELIARSUPREMESLUTBAGSCUMBAGLYINGLIARJEALOUSBITCHMORONSTFUBRANDI and pointed out that I ‘OWN’ MY HOME, and the belongings, unlike her who is living in a Bravo rented home, with a lot of Bravo rented furniture!

    • PJ says:

      I haven’t believed anything Kyle said since season one.

      • not THAT Jill says:

        Kyle lies? About what? Not being argumentative just curious as to what she lied about?

        • PJ says:

          To start with it was the problem she had with Camille in the first season that turned me off Kyle. I fully believe that she did say something to Camille off camera that caused a problem between them, then later she called Camille a ******* liar. I always believed that Kyle was the one who was lying. Then there was the way she treated Kim first season allowing her besties to treat Kim horribly and outing Kim on camera, which I think should have been handled off camera privately. But it’s so much more drama if it’s done on camera, which is the reason I believe what Kim and Brandi are saying now. Not to mention she physically went after Kim in that Limo. But also her changing loyalties from season to season, she goes with which ever person suits her at the moment. If Lisa is upset now at Brandi I believe she has as much reason to be upset at Kyle, but it suits them both to be friends again for the show. She is done with Brandi now but when it suited her purpose she pretended to make nice with Brandi. The crazy dinner party where she allowed her bestie Faye to attack Brandi, I don’t care what you think of a person you don’t do that. But then in my opinion Kyle and Faye did that to get Faye accepted as a regular on the show, manipulation behind the scenes to play out drama on screen no matter who you use. Also her choice of best friends, birds of a feather. I also believe she told Brandi some of the things Brandi said publicly, then when the heat was on denied it. To me this is classic Kyle. There is plenty more but this give you an idea of how I feel, not asking you to agree with me everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

          • not THAT Jill says:

            Ok I get the first season Camille thing-I think it has always one of those things that come down to who was more believable-I believed Kyle but I wouldn’t fault or whatever anyone for believing Camille. I also think it was just stupid but that goes for most of the fights these women have!
            Kyle outing her sister wasn’t a lie so I’m going to skip that all together except to say-I understood Kyle’s side-especially know that I see Kim more clearly.
            The Faye thing is on Faye -she didn’t like Brandi so she went after her. I think Brandi had no business outing Adrienne’s secret and it’s on her to deal with the fallout-if you talk about people’s private business I think you should expect to get some crap for it.
            Changing who you are friends with isn’t lying either so I don’t get that part but I will say I don’t blame Kyle for not sticking with Lisa-Lisa showed who her loyalty was to at the reunion when she believed everything that Brandi told her about the meeting that never took place-we know it didn’t take place because when pressed Brandi admitted that she wasn’t at any meeting and Kyle has denied it and Brandi hasn’t fought her on it.
            Maybe Kyle and Brandi did talk about Lisa and maybe Kyle did tell the story she heard from Ken about living in Calabasas-I believe that is possible-but I don’t think Kyle lied-she said she never said anything about being bankrupt-if Kyle gave Brandi all that info I know Brandi would have said so by now.
            I totally understand people not liking Kyle-she’s not for everyone…who is?
            Thanks for the response!

            • PJ says:

              I think pretending to be someone’s friend to their face but really manipulating them behind their back is very much lying, the worst kind of lying. I do think Kyle told Brandi about the bankruptcy, Brandi has said it several times and in front of Kyle and she hasn’t backed down on that. I don’t think it was true though, just manipulation. As for the meeting it’s true Brandi wasn’t there but others have admitted there was a meeting. The dinner party I don’t think that was all on Faye I think it was pre-planned between Kule and Faye. The thing with Camille may have been petty had Camille not been going through what she went through first season, I think it was classic mean girl behavior on Kyle’s part which is what I think Kyle is. I wouldn’t out my sister in national TV no matter what, who would do something like that? A move like that could push an addict deeper into addiction.

              You’re right Kyle isn’t my cup of tea she never has been, it has nothing to do with Brandi or anyone else in the cast.

              • not THAT Jill says:

                Who did Kyle manipulate?
                From what I remember every single BH housewife has said there was no meeting before the reunion-all of them.
                At the last reunion Brandi said Kyle told her about the bankruptcy and Kyle said right away “I never said that”-Brandi didn’t fight her and Brandi hasn’t mentioned it since.
                Lots of people say Kyle is a mean girl-I don’t see her that way. I try to figure out why people think that but I don’t get it.

                • PJ says:

                  I think
                  Kyle manipulates behind the scenes. I’ve stated why I don’t know what else to say. We’re all entitled to an opinion. As for the meeting I disagree that everyone said there wasn’t one.

                  Once Brandi is off this show there will be a next hated housewife, not sure who (maybe Kyle)
                  It will be but there will be one.

                  • designernailsdiana says:

                    Why does there even have to be a hated ho-wife? It’s so sad that Bravo manipulates and wants this negative drama. I liked seeing the fun vacations, lavish homes (even the gothic ones) and the parties they have for friends. These broke ass ho-wives need to go Bye Bye

                  • austin1963 says:

                    Kyle already has done her time as most hated, it seems to me. There were a season or two that people here jumped her doing even the most innocent things, and every. single. thing. she did was seen in the most negative light possible. As I said, to each their own, but that’s how I see it.

            • Austin says:

              I believed Kyle. To each their own. Camille was a snake, as far as I was concerned.

  9. Typically I think the Housewive’s kids should be left alone, but if think this is interesting.

    Wendy Williams is blasting Juicy Joe for allowing Gia to give interviews glorifying prison.

    • PJ says:

      This is sad because as far as Gia goes I think she is not so much glorifying prison as she is trying to be strong and not break down, seeing her mother in prison in a positive light is probably what she can take emotionally. Plus I’m sure Teresa wants to put as positive of a spin on this as she can for her the sake of daughters.

    • Exit4 says:

      I agree they should be left alone. Unfortunately, there’s been such a thirst for information about these kids-the gossip train is hard to stop. The only reason I wasn’t bothered with the interview was because many, many stories were Gia-centric. The media creates a narrative, true or false and runs with it. Most people know it’s BS, but a lot of people believe it. The public is flakey too-they want to make the children a part of the discussion-but don’t like when the same child gives them her own answer. I think this song/interview thing may have been smart-here’s her response to all of it-you got what you were looking for no be done with it. If the stories stop-the plan worked. Don’t think for one second if they allowed Gia to sit down with wendy for an interview-that Wendy wouldn’t have asked the same questions and patted herself on the back for it.

      But-lets face it-I don’t think “amazing” and “fun” are the best words to describe prison…lol

  10. Exit4 says:

    After all the hype-we got 3 inches. Now people are pissed. I’m not sure why-they did say it could switch and we’d (at least in the philly area) be spared, but oh well. How are the NY and Mass crew doing?

    I think Kim and Kyle were doing ok after filming and then Kim’s dog bit kyles daughter. That was around the holidays I think? I think their relationship is on the downside a little now, not just because of what’s airing on the show, but because of the dog. Kyle was rightfully pissed about the bite-Kim put the blame on alexia and didn’t seem to be that concerned. Another example of Kim’s self centered, irresponsible behavior and Kyle having to deal with the aftermath. Of course Brandi is still in Kim’s ear-your sister doesn’t care about you-but I do!

    • not THAT Jill says:

      We probably have around 5 or 6 inches-not as much as expected but that’s fine with me! I don’t care about the hype-they have to hype it up so people take the warning seriously-remember how many people didn’t think Sandy would be so bad? As the wife of a fireman who has to go into places and rescue people who do not heed the warnings-I say HYPE IT UP!! I love a snow day at home with the kids so I don’t really care how much snow is out there…and Kevin is home so no shoveling for me!

      I know Long Island and Boston got slammed-check in people and let us know you are all ok!!

    • PJ says:

      As far as the dog goes who wouldn’t pissed. I’m surprised the dog didn’t ever hurt Kim.

    • T-Rex says:

      Exit, I believe that SpaceCadetDrugAddictDrunkKim, somehow clearly “blames” Kyle for her having to give up her dog, due to the press that was received, however it wasn’t Kyle that planted that with TMZ, the hospital has to report all animal bites, particularly dog bites to the authorities, Kyle’s daughter had to have surgery for those dog bites. In addition, the dog mauled another person in her home, wherein paramedics were called, who also would have filed a report against the dog. Clearly the blogs are not in references to their relationship while filming, it’s all the subsequent issues they have had since filming. I personally do not think that SpaceCadetDrugAddictDrunkKim is any where near sober, as she attests, because taking Schedule II drugs, that are NOT prescribed to you at a dosage for a Stage IV, in the last stages of Cancer is not something someone interested in their sobriety does! Do I believe she takes those drugs regularly, absolutely, I believe she is self-medicating with the nearest thing that isn’t alcohol, and this must be very scary for her family, especially her sister.

    • plainviewsue says:

      We got 17 inches here in Plainview, Long Island. Thank goodness no loss of power.

  11. Thank you for the great blog, Namaste. Your blogs are better than the show.

    These ratchet women just don’t hold my attention anymore. I can’t with them.

  12. SoutheastVA says:

    – Hi all. Thanks Namaste for blogging RHOBH. I ony saw this episode in snippets. IT’s getting tedious watching the housewives shows.
    – My family spent a great weekend honoring my grandmother who turned 99 years old on Saturday. We had a big party for her. She loved it. We told her we allre planning an even bigger event for her 100th birthday. She’s going to have to turn up. HA HA HA

  13. not THAT Jill says:

    I always rooted for Kim and her sobriety-I didn’t like when people questioned if she were drinking or taking pills-I felt bad for her. I thought she was committed to being sober and she was just kind of spacey and dippy. Now I feel like a fool because I think she’s been lying the whole time. Paris was the warning but I didn’t I want to believe she was using and I was so angry about the shitty pillow thing-I hated the parody account on twitter and I thought Brandi was so mean about it at the reunion (I still think it was mean) . I think Kim has had a lot of people helping her cover up her addiction and quite frankly enough is enough. She’s a manipulating woman and has that addict ability to blame everyone else and never take responsibility for her own actions.
    The whole wine tasting thing to me is moot because Kim didn’t get drunk at the wine tasting-if it were a pill tasting than I would say go ahead and put the blame on whoever but that’s not the case! Kim saying in one sentence that everything was fine at poker night and then saying Kyle should have been concerned is so weird! Concerned about her bronchitis? Or her relapse? She’s denying a relapse and her BFF Brandi is helping perpetuate the lie. Not good for an addict. One time I would like to see Kim actually own up to her shit-just once!!!
    Kim is the one who controlled poker night-she took pills and told us all-thats a relapse-she busted herself and then regretted it. Brandi was only too happy to help Kim shift the focus off of herself and on to Kyle. Making Kyle the scapegoat and antagonist of poker night is a lame attempt to make us forget that Kim is not sober. The bronchitis is bullshit-I don’t care how Kim and Brandi try to spin it-I don’t believe Kim is sober.

    • not THAT Jill says:

      One other thing-Kyle couldn’t use Kim’s addiction /relapses as a storyline if KIM didn’t relapse…see how that works?

      • Exit4 says:

        In the first look-Kim was so much wackier in the car. She was acting like she didn’t know what happened and when boozdi was explaining it to her-Kim says “duuude” like the stoned surfers I used to hang out with back in the day! I think she’s snorting the pills too-which explains her effed up level. But I don’t know.

        Boozdi is so proud of herself for winning her task last night! Had the other team not been so unbelievably bad-I don’t think they would have. I had a David silver when Kenya performed and changed the channel. I understood her reasoning about the Mardi Gras thing. But-every city celebrates Mardi Gras. Philly does-it’s the bars really-but I’m guessing NYC does too? It may have worked out-because you can do a lot with the decorations, beads and music-mardi gras is fun-they could have really rocked it! And Kenya wouldn’t need to sing. Ugh! Maybe Boozdi was worried she flash too much boob for beads? Lol.

        • HuskerHuny says:

          I agree Exit4 – I think a Mardi Gras theme would have worked really well. We celebrate in Nebraska! Even used a Mardi Gras theme for our Daddy/Daughter Prom a few years ago and we had a blast with it. Brandi is dumb – just dumb. As for the other team, I knew the Hooter girls were going to be a big loser. Now if they were hosting a bachelor party on the boat, different story. And Kenya’s horrid performance of that stupid song would have fit in as well.

          • PJ says:

            In this case I don’t think Mardi Gras was a good theme not on a boat tour about NY. A NY base theme was a good idea.

        • I agree Mardi Gras would have been fun, especially as filming likely took place right before the start of lent/ i.e. mardi gras/ carnaval/ fat Tuesday season.

          All the bars and restaurants here in ny celebrate some sort of mardi/ Fat Tuesday thing 🎊🎉

          She’s as sly and manipulative on CA as she is on BH.

      • T-Rex says:

        You know Jnntj, I have never liked Kyle, and frankly probably still don’t, but I have compassion for her and her family finally this season as to what they have had to put up with for many, many, many years with SpaceCadetDrugAddictDrunkKim. It must be so sad for her to watch her sister, whom she thought had finally gotten sober, spiral down that evil path once again, and watching some interloper named THELIARSUPREMESLUTBAGSCUMBAGLYINGLIARJEALOUSBITCHMORONSTFUBRANDI help “grease” up that slippery slope she is on towards her addictions. As you said Kyle couldn’t use this as a storyline, nor even is she, this is all playing out for the television whether Kyle was involved or not! Kyle was not in the room when her sister took an Oxycodone and at a potency level assigned for a cancer patient! Now, with that being said it was shitty to take them to the place with the wine tasting, knowing her sister has sobriety issues, but SpaceCadetDrugAddictDrunkKim has been professing to her and their whole family she was sober, and they believed her and she clearly is nothing even close to sober.

      • PJ says:

        Why would anyone even come on a show like this with her sister knowing full well she was an alcoholic, that’s really cold?

        • not THAT Jill says:

          Why would an alcoholic come on this show? That’s just stupid. And then to relapse while filming? What the hell did Kim think would happen if she took drugs while filming? She’s a grown woman who needs to put the blame where it belongs-on herself. She relapsed and as long as she keeps trying to say she didn’t she will never be on the road to recovery.

          • Exit4 says:

            Kim probably made a lot of promises to Kyle-that she would hold it together and she didn’t. That she’d take this opportunity to come back into the business and she didn’t. Which ended with that awful confrontation in the limo. If bravo were to let Kim go and Kyle didn’t leave too-people would flip out.

        • T-Rex says:

          I am NO Kyle fan, let me be completely clear on that point, but Kyle was asked to be on the show FIRST, Bravo really wanted Kathy Hilton to be on the show and since Murray worked at that time for the Hiltons, I think they were hoping for some appearances by them or even Paris, etc. Now here is the murky part, I am not sure whether Kyle went to producers with her sister as a possibility or whether producers went to SpaceCadetDrugAddictDrunkKim themselves. Or did Kathy, who is closer to SpaceCadetDrugAddictDrunkKim than Kyle suggest it? SpaceCadetDrugAddictDrunkKim at the time she first signed on to the show claimed she was sober! I remember them talking about that situation, of course she wasn’t, but she is a grown ass adult, and really shame on Bravo for keeping her on the show, they knew full well there was mental and substance abuse issues with her, yet still chose to sign her for the show. Murray and Kyle along with Kathy had been supporting SpaceCadetDrugAddictDrunkKim, since most of her child support had run it’s course

          • Yup TREX and don’t foeget andy doing a “special” one one one like hour long interview with Kim re: her addiction. And not even in NY- but on her coast.

            Same as rewarding & keeping the juicy Felons on the shelf and never letting go.
            Shame on bravo.

        • austin1963 says:

          So Kyle is supposed to be responsible for controlling whether or not her sister is on the show? I don’t get that, frankly. Kim is a grown woman. I have no doubt there was some discussion about whether or not reality tv was an appropriate venue for a non-recovering alcoholic in the beginning, but again, Kim is an adult and it doesn’t seem like she takes orders from her sisters or anyone else. Let’s place the blame where it belongs in this case (and all cases).

      • kit9 says:

        Yes, the whole Kyle-uses-Kim’s-addiction-for-storyline is not only offensive in the extreme on it’s face but how does that work? Did Kyle put on a Monty mask and sneak into her house before Poker night and give Kim the pill. Perhaps she held her down and forced the booze down her throat?

    • Orson says:

      Don’t blame yourself, Jill. It’s not your fault that Kim is an addict or that addicts are liars. Kim thinks she’s okay as long as she doesn’t have any alcohol. It doesn’t matter what she drinks or takes, she’s an addict.

      • not THAT Jill says:

        I don’t blame myself Orson-Kim is on my shit list now that’s all!!!

        • T-Rex says:

          It’s funny because if you look at that fight that Kyle and SpaceCadetDrugAddictDrunkKim had in the Limo, wherein the “outing” took place, Kyle said almost the same thing you did above. I think anyone dealing with addicts, who will not acknowledge and continually lie about their addictions, has that same “epiphany”, of wanting to scream at them to take some friggin responsibility for their actions and addictions. Everyone wants to believe that someone is taking their sobriety seriously, but these are addicts, and frankly we all saw that SpaceCadetDrugAddictDrunkKim had gotten sober for all the wrong reasons, it was just a matter of time before she started “using” again. Also, she was still on a variety pills after she quit the alcohol, so she never really became “sober”, so she isn’t just an alcoholic, she is a complete “addict”. So again, I now get to how Kyle got to that “point” of screaming at her sister who for the umpteenth time was in the throws of her addictions and doing so on camera that she just snapped!

          • austin1963 says:

            That’s how I always saw it. I didn’t think it was “right”, or even acceptable, for Kyle to out her like that, but when you’ve been in the position of being jerked around for YEARS by an addict, you understand how sometimes it gets to be too much and how people can “snap”. I think it was one of those moments for Kyle in the limo, unfortunately, and it happened on camera.

    • Rebecca wishes dragons would appear and roast every Housewife who says or does something stupid. says:


      In this instance I’m not blaming Kyle for what transpired in the last episode. However, Kim should have NEVER been cast on this show in her condition. Now as for Kim herself, she is still in denial that she is a drug addict. She has said she’s an alcoholic, and lashes out at anyone who questions her sobriety. However, she was a pretty high functioning alcohol because you can’t blame all her crazy behavior on alcohol. She claims she was sneaking it around, but all we ever saw were tiny little purses. The bimbo was popping pills and smoking pipes. Until she admits this, there is really no hope for her. Kyle and Kathy need to let her go.

      As for her ghostwriter, she and Brandi could not have picked a worse one. “There was literally alcohol everywhere” is just plain stupid. There is nothing “literal” about a matter which does not concern literature. This is a huge per peeve of mine.

      If Brandi and Kim don’t want to be judged, then get the eff off of “reality” tv. Stupid dumbasses. If they have “had it” with these women, then just go away. Trust me… ratings will go up.

      P.S. Guess what? I hate Jill Zarin.

      • Well I agree about the misuse of the word literally, but the definition has been expanded to include an informal usage “in effect : virtually <will literally turn the world upside down to combat cruelty or injustice". So now there isn't really a word solely for literally any more – kind of f'ed up isn't it?

        PS – I hate Jill Z too!

          Literally? You’re literally LOLing? It’s the decline of western civilization. Using it in informal language is one thing, but if you paying someone as a professional writer, you should ACTUALLY know how to use proper grammar.

          Other examples – “in regard to” and “toward” are the words that a professional would write. When people go S crazy I know they would have flunked out of my college English classes, and are not paid to write professionally.

    Howdy Folks. Thanks for the blog. Im thrilled that the forecasters were wrong. I checked the weather when I went to bed and the 1-2 feet had been downgraded to 8-12″. We actually only got 5″, we did not lose power or heat and the guy who digs me out has already been here. He did say another 2″ was expected so we shall see. Interestingly enough I received a recorded call from Apria stating if there was a state of emergency called they would not be allowed on the roads to deliver oxygen so go to a relative’s house. I would think oxygen delivery would be considered an emergency but who am I in the grand scheme of things. Last time we had a power outage I got a similar call about moving to a relatives place from the electric company. The equipment is not exactly portable unless you have someone who can disassemble and reassemble and can actually carry the stuff. And if the power goes out at the relatives then what? Fortunately I had at least 38 hours worth of backup supply.

    • not THAT Jill says:

      Barb-so glad it wasn’t as bad as predicted for your area!

    • Exit4 says:

      That is true-they put the responsibly on the patient to make sure they have their supplies. I’m know you are a good patient, but you’d be surprised how many times people late call for deliveries or just aren’t home to receive them! My husband gets so pissed, even though he’s the branch manager-he still has to take a turn on call every month. Without fail-he gets a call from someone who didn’t answer their phone to set up a delivery-then call in the middle of a storm! And get mad at HIM for their irresponsibility! He had them do double deliveries on Monday, to cover the Tuesday people. If someone does call with a serious emergency-he has them call 911 or an ambulance. When it’s really bad-by the time his guys would get there-since most of the patients are in the city-it might be too late. I’m glad we were spared too!!

  18. Exit4 says:

    2 nice boys just came to my door to shovel. They want $20. I didn’t really “need” it done, my husband could have done it when he gets home, but I admired their resourcefulness! Kid don’t do that anymore!

    • HuskerHuny says:

      Good for you Exit4! Such a nice thing to do. When kids come to my door selling this or that, I always try to purchase something even if I already bought from another kid. Or I offer them a pop. Snow scooping (we call it scooping in Huskerland) is not an easy thing to do. Good for them!

    • Barb (Just wondering in Jersey) says:

      We were sadly lacking in kids showing initiative around here. Last year an older kid, he should be called a man but something was lacking came around. He charged me $40 each time but he did a spectacular job (OCD) and he showed up every time. It ended up costing over $300 last year but this year he has moved. Fortunately there is another high school kid a block away who has taken over and he is cheaper but reliable. Not a perfectionist but neither am I. The only problem is they plow after he’s done and block the driveway again. I’m not going anywhere but if I had to the kid would come back to help. I’m just glad he’s around.

      • PJ says:

        It’s not just where you live it’s nearly impossible to find a kid to do work like shoveling or yard work. I would gladly pay $40.00 if I could find anyone.

        • Barb (Just wondering in Jersey) says:

          I blame the parents for giving them everything instead of teaching them to earn money. There were many years with no one coming around but then I was able to at least do some of the shoveling myself. I can’t do that now. heck I even emailed the mayor who is a high school teacher. He never even responded.

      • Powell says:

        Barb the snow plowers did that to us last yr. After they did it the first time I was looking the next time so I could punch one of them.

        • Barb (Just wondering in Jersey) says:

          Ages ago I had just finished digging out and along came the plow and plowed me back in. I had to get to the train to pick Richard up from work. The plower must have realised I was mad because he came back and shoveled me out. Wouldn’t take a tip either. It wouldn’t happen these days.

    • plainviewsue says:

      When two nice boys came to our house, their first quote was $160!!!!! I mean, seriously???? My husband was home, but no more shoveling for the 59 year old as per his wife!!

  20. HuskerHuny says:

    Did anyone watch Fashion Police last night? Or have you watched it since Kathy Griffin has been on? I refuse to say that she took Joan’s place as no one can take Joan’s place.

  21. lila1star says:

    Great blog as usual! I am reading with interest the thoughts people have of Kyle with a lot of it stemming from early on. I like Kyle better than I once did but even then I saw her more as an instigator. When the Kyle and Kim Limo fight happened it didn’t push Kim further into addiction–she was already there and say what you want about Kyle she is normally pretty easy going especially with Kim but Kim crossed a line that night and Kyle snapped making her human.

    Fast forward to more recent seasons and I personally do not believe Kim has ever been 100% sober. She has been on a cocktail of anti-depressants and the like since treatment but it did all seem to be working for her. I have had some major questions about Kim being on this show once she went into serious recovery because she was always around the ladies drinking. Now Monty–a recovering addict is going to watch a loved one die? and stay sober? Kim does not have the sober time nor is she being pro-active and working a program in order to guard herself. Where is the sponsor Kim always had on speed dial? Traded in for Brandi?

    I have a family full of addicts and I do feel for Kyle and if It had been me and Brandi tried to get between me and my sister I would have done more than fling away her arm! Over the seasons we have heard the story of how Kyles mom left it to her as a death bed request to look out for Kim. So Kyle and her whole family has a lot invested in Kim. I felt the pit in Kyles stomach as the realization dawned on her during poker night.

    Those who are saying production/Bravo have been acting less than responsible as far as activities Kim is involved with are again excusing Kim who by now should no when to say NO. By that logic–Kim should not be on this show at all.
    FYI–Kims dog has been labeled one of the most dangerous pits by his trainer.
    Kathy Hilton had her own reality show years ago and it tanked–the woman has zero personality lol.

      I’ve said in the past that Kyle is an Alpha girl. Always the leader and the center of her group. I think joining a show like this where many of the women are also Alpha types-was an adjustment for her!

      What made me feel awful for Kyle was when she opened up to Brandi about how Kim’s issues were dealt with when her mom was alive. Swept under the rug, don’t talk about it-not uncommon especially for someone of their moms generation. Then brandi turned around and stabbed her right in the back. In the first look, Kim was more then willing to talk to Kyle and Brandi wasn’t allowing it! The fact that Kim is weak isn’t lost on Brandi-she knows she can prey on Kim’s insecurities. She’s gross.

      • not THAT Jill says:

        I think Kim and Brandi are very much alike. They are both queens of contradiction. They both act like poor wounded birds when it suits them and then act like badass bitches when people call them weak. Brandi has made a career out of playing victim-her ex husband cheated on her-it’s been 5 years 4 seasons of BH and 2 books-times run out on that line of victimhood!! She likes being a victim until someone calls her weak then she will cut a bitch. She wants to “beat Kyle’s ass” but cried all week that Kyle scratched her-she wants to move on in her life but doesn’t shut up about her ex-she wants to prove herself as a business woman on apprentice but sat there and let the men call her “delicate”…WTF??? She was so scared of Mauricio but told him to STFU. Lisa was “like a mother” to her but she didn’t like it-Lisa pulled away and Brandi cried.
        Kim is a different kind of victim-she told Lisa R “not to feel F-ing sorry for her” but her entire blog is about why we should feel sorry for her. She wants Kyle to “worry” about her but doesn’t say what Kyle should worry about. She made sure she to cast a bit of doubt on Kyle’s knowledge of the wine tasting because she wants us to think it’s Kyle’s fault she relapsed-but her “sobriety” is her own. They contradict and play games-2 peas in a friggen pod…Brandi and Kim deserve each other!!

        • Rebecca wishes dragons would appear and roast every Housewife who says or does something stupid. says:

          Kyle should have stopped the filming and changed the wine tasting to a regular lunch. You would have; I would have; everybody here would have. She did choose to let that play out.

          • not THAT Jill says:

            They all let it play out b/c Kim insisted she was fine-over and over. She’s only not fine now because she relapsed -she needs to blame someone for have bronchitis so I guess she came down with that at the pill I mean wine tasting.

            • Be that as it may- Kyle has to be savvy enough by now not to believe anything an alcoholic/addict says.


              Big side eye to Kyle for not looking out for her alcoholic sister by continuing with the wine tasting, Rebecca the Dragon is absolutely right.

              Any one of us would have stopped it- but this the alternate universe of Bravo HouseWives.

              • not THAT Jill says:

                They were filming which means “working”-addicts work-situations come up that put addicts in a bad/hard spot. They learn to cope with these issues as they are part of life. What makes Kim so special as an “workng” addict that people have to cater to her?
                I’m going to assume most of here know an addict or two and most of us would be in tune to that addicts problems but we can’t change our lives for the addict-that’s not life that’s not the way life works. Shit comes up and people deal with it-Kim is on a reality show where drinking is always happening-she signed up for this. If she can’t deal with that aspect of the show get the hell off the show! If her job was being a cleaning lady then drinking wine wouldnt be an issue-as a HW it is an issue-change jobs Kim!!

              • Exit4 says:

                Just to play devils advocate OMIB-if kim had said “no, I’m not ok”-would that be a lie? She’s still an addict. They were drinking in the car on the way up, they were given champs when they arrived-and kim declined. If the tasting had stopped-which other part of the day would we be blaming? Or who? As much as I despise brandi-I don’t blame her either. She’s bombed around kim all the time. Brandi wears her boozing like a badge of honor. Kim deals with it.

              • kit9 says:

                My sister has told me repeatedly over the years that being around other people drinking doesn’t bother her. She’s told me this sober many many times and has absolutely no reason to lie about it. It causes me more anxiety than her. Just like we saw with Kyle and Kim. I think it’s because my sister, like most real alcoholics-unlike those you see on tv or in movies- don’t like to drink socially. They like solitude, just them and their bottle. Speaking of movies- I also hate watching movies where people are drinking w/my sister and, again, she insists, to the point of eye rolling, it doesn’t bother her. The only thing that bothers my sister is when alcoholics aren’t portrayed accurately. That drives her crazy. Also, something I’ve learned from years of dealing w/this is alcohol in film is nearly impossible to avoid! My sister called me laughing one day to say she was watching some kid’s film, something Disney, and people were drinking in it! I also remember watching Prometheus with her. Her fav movie is Alien and this being it’s pre-sequel, we were psyched to see. Then, in the middle of freaking deep space in the future year whatever…there’s Charlize Theron pulling out a bottle of Vodka! Couldn’t believe it.

                  Kit, thank you so very much for your insights and sharing your experience. With Ms Nancy gone(RIP we miss you), it’s helpful to have someone with direct experience to give us the 411. I think that SpaceCadetDrugAddictDrunkKim is like your sister, I think she was a “closet” drinker, it’s why she was late to events, or didn’t bother to show up at all, because she was drunk, but in her own home. We never really saw her drinking on screen, or even being filmed, she is a lying, cunning, devious alcoholic, which a lot of folks are, they aren’t those rip roaring drunks in the bar.

                • Foxymel(Mel) says:

                  Thanks for sharing that with us, Kit! Big hugs to you and your sister!

              • austin1963 says:

                Kyle looks out for her and has been looking out for her for years. But be that as it may, Kim is an adult. We do not do addicts any favors by absolving them of responsibility and blaming their problems on other people. They already do a good enough job of that on their own, generally.

            • Exit4 says:

              I don’t think the concern with the wine tasting was the wine. Kim is around alcohol pretty often-the concern was that it’s interactive and she couldn’t participate. I think they were worried about her being upset at being left out then tempted to drink. I think if kim had said she was not comfortable they would have ended the tasting. She insisted they continue. If Kyle ran around saying put the wine away! She’s in recovery! She’s be accused of embarrassing her sister. Which would be twisted into the reason kim relapsed. Kyle followed Kim’s lead-

              • Powell says:

                As I said last week Kyle is damned if she does/says anything to help her sis and she’s damned if she doesn’t do anything to help her sis. Kyle gets from Kim I’m fine. Basically I can take care of myself. But then if she feels Kyle isn’t responding to her the way she wants, Kyle isn’t concerned about her. Kyle already has Portia to look after. She shouldn’t have to look after Kim too.

          • kit9 says:

            If a cast member had the power to stop filming, nobody would ever be filmed doing something dumb. Kyle can’t make them stop. All she could do was deal with the situation.

            • Rebecca wishes dragons would appear and roast every Housewife who says or does something stupid. says:

              But, Kyle said this wasn’t planned. So, there was no reason she couldn’t stop filming a scene that wasn’t supposed to happen anyway.

          • VV™ says:

            You have a valid point Rebecca. There has been HWs that have refused to film with other and flat out walked off the scene or flat out skip events and trips.
            Yes, maybe they could’ve skipped the wine tasting. Knowing that we viewers know, it would’ve been a better choice. It wouldn’t be the first time you decline something while on a Spa.

          • austin1963 says:

            Maybe, maybe not. But the wine tasting is a total distraction and had nothing to do with Kim taking an oxy or whatever she took.

  22. VV™ says:

    Ariana’s blog is not on Bravo site yet. She tweeted link to her blog she posted on Tumblr. I think she and Tom are not happy that Miami girl was brought over on the show.

    • Powell says:

      Crazy girl can do all she wants but it doesn’t erase the fact that she slept w/Jax, who was her BFs best friend. That’s what this proves Tom slept w/the girl in Miami is really all about. Take the focus off of what sleazy thing she did.

    • T-Rex says:

      Oh where oh were to begin to address an idiot that calls out her boss in a public forum, yet claims she is so bright, yet doesn’t understand that old adage, “don’t bite the hand that feeds you”. Uhm, moron, TheRoyalVPump is not ONLY your employer at SUR she is the executive producer of your show VPRules, if you want to continue with a paying job, I would temper my words a bit better about the person signing your checks, in addition as EP that means that production shares information and footage with her. Look the fact is your are dating a cheater, did he cheat in Miami, probably, sorry but that chick has pictures and gave her story to the tabs months ago and we saw SandyTom admonish AssholeJaxxHole to keep his yap shut about what went down. Sorry, he cheated. Now with that said, I would file a restraining order asap on KrazyKristenFutureStarofSNAPPED cause that chick is a couple of drunken incidents short of committing something more than just accusations. Also MoronCluelessAriana, uhm if you don’t think SandyTom is now using that KrazyKristenFutureStarofSNAPPED and her issues to make you think he is not cheating, well, then well done SandyTom.

OMFG if that idiot professes yet again that she is trying to get TheRoyalVPump to be friends with her again, yet playing these stupid games, she is just even more idiotic then I thought.

  25. Exit4 says:

    This wine tasting issue is getting so much scrutiny because the relapse occurred right after. At least on the show-coincidence? I don’t think one has to do with the other. If it was switched and kim was sober at the poker party-and she showed up high at the spa, would Vince and eileen be to blame? They were drinking there.

    • T-Rex says:

      SpaceCadetDrugAddictDrunkenKim has been abusing pills probably for MONTHS, probably since Monty has been staying with her, which was before filming even began. In addition as we have seen with Kyle and Murrays fridge, that thing is stocked better than most restaurants with wine, yet there hasn’t been any issues with that. She was at a party at the Hilton’s, that party included alcohol, so why isn’t Kathy H responsible. Yes, if it were me and the wine was included, I would have had it removed, and told the staff, to not include a wine pairing in the event. But Kyle is Kyle and she really does only think of herself, and her sister said she was okay with it to her, so in her mind it was okay. I get why people are pissed at Kyle, because even if her sister said it was okay, she should have had them remove the wine. I get the whole alcohol at other Ho-Wives events, but what gets everyone irritated is that this is her SISTER, not some random Ho-wife.

      • Exit4 says:

        True-I wrote up above that had the tasting been stopped-who or what would get the blame? Yes, it’s her sister, but it was part of the show as a whole and included the other ladies. It can’t be both ways-either EVERY event that includes kim on the show should be alcohol free or she needs to deal with it-or not be in this environment at all.

        It hit me when I read your comment that pills are a seperate problem. If what you said is true-that she’s been abusing pills for a while-even before filming, then this isn’t kyles fault at all. If she’s been using prior to the tasting debacle-it’s not a relapse. And if she’s traded an alcohol addiction for a pill addiction-ending the wine tasting becomes a moot point. She’s okay with the alcohol because she’s got the pills in her purse.

        • T-Rex says:

          She has always been on pills, even after her rehab stint, they explained away last year her goofy behaviour last season, wherein we all thought she was drinking again, to mixing her medications. So we already know she was mixing meds for anxiety, and whatever other made up think she claimed she had to get pills, then she gets access to high level doses of oxycodone. Oh, and mind you if you didn’t have a tolerance already built up for high levels of Oxy, she would have been passed out after taking that dosage. Mr T-Rex reminded me that at the 2mg dosage I used to yap my head off, then in five minutes it would kick in and I would just pass out, I think he has a video, which I told him would mean his imminent torture if it managed itself to youtube! I was only on that dosage about a month and I never got “used” to it. So, she has been probably taking the drugs for months. With Monty’s condition and cancer stage, they wouldn’t miss probably even 30 pills a month(which is just one a day), they would chalk that up to his pain progressing.

          • Exit4 says:

            So, if she’s taking care of Monty-taking his pills to feed her exsisting condition-which is very likely-why is Kyle getting the blame? I think she snorts them too-she wasn’t fun and loopy-she was whacked out! Its really sad. For everyone!

            • austin1963 says:

              The wine tasting had nothing to do with Kim deciding at another point to take an oxy or whatever she took. Not sure why some are so seemingly obsessed with it.

  26. TexasTart says:

    Namaste! Thanks for the hit and run on the BH gals! “She also shares that she thinks Brandi’s vagina chatter is funny.  I think Kim is a recovering alcoholic AND a very poor judge of character.”

    “I WASN’T THERE AND I WAS EMBARRASSED” LOL Namaste , me too. Lots of jewels in there….and I like the things that make you happy section at the end! 😀

    Please chat the show tonight so I can know what is going on, it’s the only way I’ve been able to keep up. Thanks everyone. Back later have to go get something to eat. Would you believe this is the 3rd day of rain down here. I feel right at home, it’s almost like I’m in the good old Pacific Northwest

  28. Orson says:

    I wonder what the h*ck kind of rehab Kim went to. It couldn’t have been Betty Ford or another Hazelden. They seem to have gotten her off booze but didn’t get her off pills. Wouldn’t a reputable rehab take note of EVERY medication she takes and in consultation with the drs that prescribed them, work to get her off them?

    Kim seems to be a lightweight, a delicate hothouse orchid. Rather than go through serious therapy to face and deal with her issues, she’ll just shop for drs who’ll give her the pills to help her stumble through life. Maybe, if Kyle can bring herself to step back (and maybe start going to Al-Anon herself), Brandi’s association with Kim will help speed Kim on her way to her bottom, where she’d be actually willing to get serious, real help.
