Real Housewives of Beverly Hills “Sister Act” – Brandi starts to Spill Kim’s Secrets

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

“Sister Act” – S5E13

by Stars99


Remember last week…

Kim recently returned from a 5 night stay (what she told Lisa R), a 7-8 night stay (what she told Brandi), or a 9-night stay (what she said in her blog) – Depending on which of the many faces of Kim you choose to believe – or not to believe… Evidently, Kim had a fractured rib, ruptured disc, and hiatal hernia that came about because of the pressure from all of the coughing she’d been doing from having bronchitis and pneumonia for weeks. But somehow she miraculously was healed because she was able to stand straight up on a barstool (not a step stool – a tall bar stool) with her hands extended – and she got down from that standing position on said barstool without even a whimper of pain when Brandi arrived at her doorstep. It’s a miracle! Okay, we also saw Brandi (The Twit) and Kyle got into a nasty fight at Kyle’s fun game night for “her gays.” Lisa V has a storyline going about Max wanting to find out about his genetic heritage and I’m wincing as I’m watching it… I may have to “Go Oklahoma” on Lisa V’s ass about this subject – We shall see… But the worst part of the episode was that there was just not enough Lisa R or Eileen (That Tramp that I love) in it, dagnabit! It was a sad episode when it was all said and done… Sometimes reality shows are tough to watch when they’re sprinkled with glimpses of the harsh realities of unsober people wrestling with addiction and the sober and unsober people who enable them. Kyle tells Kim, “Fuck you.” No seriously, she did.

This week…

This episode picks up when Kyle tells Kim to “Fuck You.”… (Of course – Because who didn’t want to see that again?) And in her TH Kim says she doesn’t wanna cry… She doesn’t wanna cry… Well then, don’t! Finally, Kim, Brandi, and their +1 leave the party because it’s obvious they’re unwanted. As they’re waiting for their car, they go back through the events of the party and Kim doesn’t understand what she did that made Kyle so angry. Hey Kim – Perhaps Kyle was a lil pissy because you decided to bring her current enemy to her party and you didn’t even give her the courtesy of a head’s up… Or… Perhaps it’s because you don’t ever defend Kyle to Brandi when Brandi says Kyle is never there for you… Or perhaps you don’t even react when Brandi says vile things to Kyle… I mean…I guess I’m assuming you actually wanted to know some reasons why Kyle might be mad at you… But I guess we all know you really don’t care about anyone but yourself. You just want everything to be all about Kim Kim Kim!

Lisa V consoles a crying Kyle inside the party who is still shaking as she talks about how Brandi is mean and acts like the “fucking truth canon” but that she always gets her facts wrong. Lisa tells Kyle that she understands what she’s saying because that’s how she felt last year – Kyle immediately reacts and says that this is not about Lisa V… Lisa, to her credit realizes Kyle’s in a vulnerable place, agrees that it’s not about her but that she was just commiserating and empathizing with her… Lisa V hugs Kyle and tries to encourage her to find strength. Lisa hopes Kyle can get to a place where nothing Brandi says permeates her because she knows Brandi is just looking for a reaction. Kyle doesn’t understand what went wrong between her and Kim since they had a great conversation just one day before the party. I have one word for you, Kyle: Brandi.

Kyle thinks Kim is blinded to what Brandi is doing… She doesn’t understand why Kim can’t see Brandi for who she is? By the way, I just got word yesterday, that an acquaintance of mine is losing her eyesight probably within the month… It reminds me that even though sometimes my life is incredibly painful – That there are things that I can be thankful about – including eyesight. Anyway…

Lisa R wants to know why Brandi gets so angry… What happened? It’s really upsetting to see two sisters fight like that. Eileen explains that she has lost 2 of her sisters in the last 5 years – So she especially sensitive to the relationship between sisters.

They talk about Kim and Eileen knows it’s more than just pain medication. Lisa R flat out says that Kim is an addict and everyone around her is trying to protect her. Lisa R says that both of her husband’s brothers were addicts and she watched them die. Lisa R knows that just one pill or one drink can make an addict go right back to using. Lisa R emphatically says that Kim needs help because she took a pill and she didn’t know what it was. Addicts can’t do that. Actually, don’t we all know that Kim knows exactly what that medication is at this point? I mean, who puts a cancer-level pill in their mouth if they don’t know what it is? I guess an addict could do that but even if you didn’t know beforehand what it was – Wouldn’t that be your first question the very first chance you had to ask it? Kim just doesn’t want to admit to what she took even though in the bathroom at Poker Night she emphatically said to Kyle, “I have nothing to hide.” This makes me cranky because it just insults our collective intelligence.

Eileen astutely says, “Just because you’re sober doesn’t mean you’re not an addict anymore – You’re just a sober addict. So it applies to Kim.” Lisa R knows that whoever is around her or close to Kim is enabling her. Lisa R does NOT understand why people aren’t already fed up with Kim’s antics. She wonders why people aren’t calling Kim out on her crap. She thinks Kim’s got everybody scared and that no one wants to deal with it.

Heather McDonald (Chelsea Lately) visits Brandi to be part of her podcast. The first question Brandi has for her is, “Have you ever slept with Joe Francis?” In my head, I’m thinking – Hasn’t everyone slept with Joe Francis? Brandi’s Mom told Brandi to never worry about what people are saying about her because at least they’re talking about her – But that it’s when they stop talking that she should start worrying. My takeaway from this is:  Brandi’s idiotic behavior is ALL her Mother’s fault! Lol… I’m sure Brandi’s Mom graduated from the school of, “There’s no such thing as bad press.” But my, how things have changed! Brandi… I implore you… Listen to me… Social media is not your friend! Step away from Twitter… Seriously… Last night at 5:41 she tweeted the following:  “Omg everyone leave me the FUCK alone !!2 much! Give me a moment.” How about… laying your phone down, Brandi…Anyway… Brandi laughs really hard at her own jokes throughout the podcast probably to cover up the fact that no one else is laughing…Anywhere.

Kyle th

Eileen is in a movie that is being featured at the Burbank International Film Festival. She invites Kyle and the two Lisas to attend the event with her. They’re all in the same limo on the way to the event and of course, they talk about the Game Night incident. Kyle explains that she has always thought that Brandi is just an angry person. Kyle used to make excuses for Brandi because she knew she had been hurt. However, she realizes that a lot of people have had it a lot harder than Brandi. Lisa V thinks Brandi doesn’t like to see people happy and when she does she tries to stab them (or start rumors about them)… Kyle, in her TH says that she and Lisa V have talked about why Brandi is like this – Is it alcohol or something else? Kyle has come to the conclusion that Brandi’s just an asshole. Eileen says that the bottom line is that Brandi is getting something from acting the way she acts – that there’s some sort of a payoff for her – Otherwise, she wouldn’t do it. Lisa R says Brandi is acting like a 3-year-old (No offense to 3-year-olds). She’s convinced that Brandi wants any kind of attention – good or bad.

Brandi says she’s not wrong in this situation with Kyle – and she’s not getting an apology from her ever. Right… Because as a person who landed this job solely because your husband cheated on you – It’s such a nice thing to imply once again on national TV that Kyle’s husband is cheating on her – And to do it in such an low down, underhanded way is just such a scummy thing to do… (Remember last week at the Game Night when Kyle asked Brandi to leave and told her she wasn’t wanted, Brandi said, “Excuse me, neither are you – Ask your husband.”) So, so mean…

Okay, so the Burbank Film Festival is held at a mall – Actually, it looks like it’s in the foyer of a theater. Okay, so the red carpet is, according to Eileen, about the size of a bath mat. Okay, so the interviewer doesn’t know which soap operas Eileen has been involved… But the hilarious part is that Kyle and the Lisas go to the concession stand and ask the guy what he recommends – The chicken tenders or a hot dog… They’re asking as they’re stuffing their faces with popcorn. To be honest, I’m just happy they’re eating at all…lol. He suggests the chicken tenders because, “They’re fresh.” Okay, here’s a tip… If the guy who is cooking the food suggests getting the chicken tenders because they’re fresh… Ummm… I suggest you eat the chicken tenders, no?  However, since the women are much better with handling things that come in the shape of hotdogs, they choose that instead. I think it’s hilarious they’re eating popcorn and hotdogs… I kind of love it…

Lis r big eyes

Lisa R describes Eileen’s movie “Stranger at the Pentagon” as “outer spacey kind of hard to explain” while Kyle and Lisa R just look into the camera with wide eyes like they’ve just seen an alien. Well, I guess maybe they have…lol… But they’re really trying not to laugh at the budget movie. Lisa V just falls apart laughing in her TH… I hope this segment doesn’t hurt Eileen’s feelings… I don’t think it was supposed to be a comedy… Kyle just can’t get over Eileen having to wear a unitard on screen… They all assure Eileen that she looked gorgeous for this event. I’m sure that will make everything better…lol.

Brandi goes over to YoYo’s house for a yoga session. YoYo thinks Brandi needs a lifestyle change and that popping a Xanax is not a way to deal with things. Brandi says she tried yoga before with her ex-husband but they still got a divorce. While in the position of “praying hands” Brandi prays aloud that she prays that Kyle moves to Colorado… However, then she thought better of it because Colorado sounded too close. Instead she chooses West Africa – Where Ebola started. YoYo is surprised that Brandi is thinking about that at this point of time. Yep… Not a mean bone in Brandi’s body.

brandi at yoyo

After their yoga session and saying “Namaste”… (Btw… Again, great job on the blogs this week, Namaste)… YoYo tells Brandi (The Twit) how it’s difficult for her to listen to the others describe Brandi’s actions as aggressive and angry drunk. Brandi calmly asks who’s saying this but YoYo doesn’t throw anyone under the bus.

In tonight’s 1st edition of “I Kid You Not,” as YoYo is telling Brandi that people are saying that she’s an angry drunk and that she is drinking too much, I KID YOU NOT – Brandi says,“It’s getting to the point where I want to drink more to tell them, ‘When you tell me not to do something – I do it.’ And that’s been me my whole life because I do not like to be bossed around.”… Spoken like the true 3rd grader she is…(No offense to 3rd graders)… That Brandi is such a quality role model for her kids, no?

Brandi says that she was sober when she had the altercation with Kyle at the Game Night – but that Kyle was the one who was drunk. YoYo tells Brandi she doesn’t want people going around saying she’s an alcoholic… Brandi says that’s she’s not an alcoholic – but that if she was, that she would get help because, “There’s no shame in my game.” I’m sure you can feel free to quote her on that one. YoYo tells her that she would want to be there to help her… Brandi starts listing off all the things she does on a day-to-day basis as evidence that she can’t possibly be an alcoholic. Right, like there’s no such thing as a “functional alcoholic.” YoYo tries to explain that she could also not go out and drink “that little bit too much when you start behaving like an asshole.”  YoYo tells her that she’s raising daughters and that she can’t be a hypocrite and support that kind of behavior.

In tonight’s 2nd edition of “I Kid You Not,” as YoYo is telling Brandi that she is raising daughters and can’t support Brandi’s outlandish behavior when she’s drunk, I KID YOU NOT– Brandi says, “You’re saying am I an alcoholic – and you’ve heard that about your daughter – And she’s not…”  YoYo wants to know who has been saying that about her daughter – and Brandi shrugs and says that’s what people have been saying – but that she knows she’s not…

yoyo th 1 person

YoYo calls out Brandi for personally attacking her and her 17-year-old daughter when she’s trying to talk to Brandi about Brandi’s own problem. In her TH, YoYo says, “Seriously, Brandi – You want to stab me below the belt? The one person who is trying to back you?” Brandi thinks she was just trying to make a comparison… YoYo tries to tell her she’s not her Mother and that she can behave how she wants. Brandi nods and says, “exactly.” YoYo is worried that the type of energy Brandi puts out is going to come back on her and possibly on her children. At the end of the day, it’s all about the children. Brandi says, “I do everything and everything I do is for my children.” YoYo says she knows that. Brandi says, “I just don’t care what anyone else thinks. So just stop talking about it – And stop talking about me. Like just get a new subject.”

Wait a minute… Earlier, Brandi indicated she didn’t care what people said about her – That at least they’re talking about her. Now she says she wants people to stop talking about her. Gosh, Brandi – I would LOVE that, too… I think the best way for that to happen is for Bravo to fire her drunken dupa because she has singlehandedly ruined a show that I once loved so much.

Pandora had the idea of bottling the Vanderpump sangria they’ve been making for decades and selling it at stores ( Pandora and Lisa V are setting up a sangria display in a store. Pandy has been traveling so Lisa fills her in on Max’s quest to find out about his genetic heritage. Pandy’s initial responses were, “Why now? What’s he trying to find out? He’s never worried about it before? He’s always just been a part of our family.” Pandy asks Lisa if she wants another family coming into the picture… Lisa responds, “I don’t think they will – So don’t even say that.” Pandy starts to cry… Lisa is a little teary, too. Pandy says things like, “He’s ours…” Lisa V says she doesn’t know if this is just the 1st step in finding his biological family or if indeed he only wants to find out about his genetic heritage. She admits that it may all just be her own fears. Lisa tells Pandy that she wants her to be supportive of whatever Max wants… I’m going to stay relatively silent on this subject this week. We’ll see how it progresses…

lisa birth mom

Max arrives at his Mom’s house seemingly unannounced (although they are filming…lol). Lisa said that she smells alcohol on Max. He explains that he was out all night. There’s some back and forth exchange between them – And most parents will probably cringe at this… When Lisa tries to come down on Max for being out at all hours of the night – Max tosses back at Lisa that she used to party when she was his age, too…lol… Do as I say, not as I do… right?

But on to the business at hand… Max got the DNA results but he didn’t look at them until he was with Lisa. He expresses that he feels kind of weird. Lisa had filled in the last name of Max’s biological parents when she was assured he wasn’t looking – but now, the results probably contain that name so he will see it for the first time. He is Scandinavian and Irish. He can’t believe it. Lisa says in her TH that if Max wants to do something – like if he actually wanted to find his biological family, that her feelings aren’t important. Lisa point blank asks Max how he would feel if he met his birth mother. Max says that he wouldn’t want to meet her is how he feels. He explains that she gave him up for whatever reason and that’s that… Max says, “And look where I am now… It’s probably better… Obviously! Were you worried about it?”

Lisa is honest and tells him that of course she is – That it’s something she’s been worried about it since the day she picked him up… Lisa feels that Max can ask her whatever he wants and find whoever he wants because he will always think of Lisa as his Mother… So it doesn’t matter. . Well Lisa, wasn’t it just last episode when Max asked you for the last name of his biological parents and you wouldn’t give it to him… So get down off your perfectly pink pedestal. Max goes to get himself some more water to drink and asks if Lisa wants something. Lisa beams and asks him to make her a cup of tea. She gets this proud motherly look in her eye…I gotta say, I love it when a kid serves their Mom when they’re not even prodded to do so. Okay Lisa, you can get back up on your perfectly pink pedestal.

eileen, kyle and kim

Eileen is feeling especially empathetic towards Kim and Kyle at the moment because she knows what it’s like to have fights with your sisters. She asks Kim and Kyle to go to lunch to try to mend fences and build bridges.   Eileen thinks that maybe her perspective can make a difference. Kyle arrives and sits down with Eileen and says she’s nervous. Kim arrives and everyone plays nice for the first minute or two. Kim and Kyle exchange pleasantries and say they love each other. Eileen explains to them that she has 4 sisters. One of them died 5 years ago and another died just 4 months ago – Wow. Evidently, her sister Connie died from complications from breast cancer even though she had decided to try a homeopathic route for treatment. Her oldest sister, Mary, died from a heart attack. Eileen says that if she’s learned anything from the two deaths it’s that life is too fricken short (she did say fricken…lol). Life is indeed short – No matter how long it is. Even as I sit here and attempt to write this recap… I have the phone nearby because Mr. Stars99’s beloved Nana is on her deathbed in faraway Michigan. While she has enjoyed 92 years of life – It just never seems quite long enough, does it? You always wish you had seen them that one last time… Or that you had recorded that really great last conversation. We’ve got to love them while we have them… Seriously…

Eileen mentions about how Brandi said while standing in Eileen’s driveway at Poker Night that Kyle has never been there for Kim. Kim immediately says, “Oh, I don’t think Brandi realizes all the times she HAS been there for me.” Kyle wishes that Kim had explained that to Brandi that evening. Kim continues to say that as good of a sister that Kyle has been to her – That there have been moments when Kyle has hurt her. Kim lashes out at Kyle for wanting to bring up the very personal contents of the late night conversations Kim has been having with Brandi. Kyle says that Brandi is the one who brought it up but Kim disagrees. Kyle tells Kim that Brandi brings it up with everybody – and that’s what she was trying to tell Kim. Kyle said in her TH, “I’m concerned that Kim has said too much personal information with Brandi – and Brandi will turn her back on her and stab her in the back. I know this and unfortunately, Kim is going to have to learn on her own.”

kim th

Kyle doesn’t understand why Kim is convinced that Kyle is out to hurt her when all Kyle has ever done is try to protect her… ever… ever… In Kim’s TH she says she doesn’t think Kyle understands what good intentions are anymore – that she’s a little mixed up… Kyle doesn’t understand how Kim just sits there while Brandi says all kinds of mean things to Kyle without saying a word. Kyle exclaims, “You don’t think I’m upset about that?” Kyle mentions Brandi’s comment that nobody wants to be with Kyle including her husband… Kim says she didn’t hear that… Kyle says, “It’s so easy for you to say, ‘Oh, I didn’t hear that…’ Fuck that.” Kim says, “You always put me in the middle of every situation.”

Eileen was hoping that this get together would come out well but she fears that she just opened up Pandora’s Box again. Kyle doesn’t understand why Kim wants to paint Kyle like she’s someone who wants to hurt Kim… Kim said she’s telling Kyle how she feels. Eileen tries to play mediator and translates to Kyle that the fact that Kyle brought it up at all is making Kim feel extra vulnerable. Eileen tells Kim that she understands that Kim feels she needs Brandi as a friend but that it seems like Brandi is adding a lot of fuel to the fire, though… Kim, in her TH wishes that Eileen would just stay out of it – Because she doesn’t like people to talk about people Kim loves. Yes, but evidently it’s perfectly fine to talk bad about your sister, Kyle?  Wow… Kim sits quietly at the table dazing off into the distance. Kyle is looking a different direction. Kyle wonders how many more times, even as sisters they can they do this?

kim cry

Lisa R meets with Brandi – I think it’s because she wants to keep her friends close and her enemies closer…lol… Lisa wants to be brutally honest with Brandi.  She tells her that she’s been with “the girls” and that there have been lots of conversations about how mean they think Brandi has been acting. Lisa says she’s trying to understand that if Brandi is mean… Why is she mean? Is it because she’s in pain?

Brandi doesn’t think she’s mean… She explains that she’s temperamental and that she’s kind of a mama bear and wants to protect people. She acknowledges that if she gets hit she will go lower. Brandi confides with Lisa R (on national TV) that Kim doesn’t have many friends. Kim has told Brandi that she’s her best friend. Brandi thinks this puts a lot of pressure on her shoulders. She explains that she is not going to change who she is just to be a friend of Kim’s.

The conversation shifts to talk about medications that Kim may be on. Brandi says that Kim is on a patch for her hernia. Brandi says she’s not going to call Kim a liar. Lisa asks if Kyle realizes her sister is in this kind of trouble… Brandi says incredulously, “Does anyone not?” Lisa thinks this is a really serious situation… It looks serious… It sounds serious… It smells serious… It’s a really big deal to Lisa. Brandi says that she can’t say anything because Kim feels safe with her. The whole concept that they’re dancing around can’t exist for Brandi… Lisa clarifies that when Brandi’s with Kim that they basically live this lie and they don’t really deal with it… Brandi confirms, “Pretty much.” Lisa says that people think they’re protecting Kim but they’re not – That something dramatic is going to happen… Then she corrects herself…Well, something DID happen. Brandi ominously confirms, “More than you know.”

brandi with lisa

Brandi says of Kim, “If anyone were to say, ‘We’re wondering about your sobriety’ – She would die.” OMG Brandi… If this is true… You’re saying this on national TV for what? A storyline? You’re throwing your friend under the bus for a storyline… Congratulations to you!

Lisa expresses in her TH that she doesn’t understand why everyone is so secretive about it – Why is it so hush hush? Why is everyone walking on eggshells? It’s easy to see that Lisa has never lived life with an alcoholic – because sadly, that’s what it’s like in so many families of alcoholics. Lisa says of the whole walking on eggshells thing, “I’m sorry, that’s fucking bullshit.” Rut roh… I’m thinking that some shells are going to be broken in the not-so-distant future…lol. Time for some scrambled eggs!  Woo hoo!

Lisa remains concerned and Brandi agrees that they’re all pretending that it’s not happening. Right. It’s called, “The elephant in the room.”

Other Things we learned from this episode…

~~ Eileen cleaned the bathrooms at the studio where she took acting classes so she could pay for them.

~~ There was a funny advertisement that featured Kyle, Lisa V and Jax (Vanderpump Rules) for the movie, “50 Shades of Grey.” They agree that it’s a great girl’s night out excursion… Kyle and Lisa seem to have read the book… I find that humorous for some reason. The fact that Jax is also part of the ad puts it over the edge to me. Every time I see him I’m compelled to shower in antibacterial gel because he’s just so smarmy.

~~ Lisa R expresses that it’s a fulltime job for her to try to keep her teenaged daughters from drugs, sex, and becoming snotty little assholes. She also talks to her dog. I love it!

Delusional Thought of the Episode…

Brandi says, “My heart and my head don’t usually agree. My head says I need to talk to Kim and see if she needs to get help… My heart says that she says she’s sober – So I know when you say you’re sober – You’re sober – Until you don’t… Until you admit that you’re not.”  While I understand that admitting you have a problem is the first step in recovery – I do think that people can help others recognize they actually do have a problem. Ignoring or pretending it doesn’t exist does not make it go away. The real truth is that an addict is not sober if they are drinking or taking pills – Whether they “say” or “feel” they’re sober or not.

Quotes of the episode…

“I’m kind of getting the message that I’ve crossed over the line and I’m going to be Brandi’s next target – So I’m just praying that I’m not… I’m not quite ready for my body bag… But if I do get a body bag, I want it to be Louis Vuitton with like a diamond zipper.” Lisa R thinks she might be Brandi’s target because she’s been pretty vocal about her opinion of Brandi and Kim.

“I just cannot sit back and watch the bullshit train go by.”  Lisa R talks in her TH about the Kim’s sobriety situation.

Next week…

There is a surprise party for Lisa V… Kyle and Kim play with hand puppets and it looks like things go awry… Brandi expresses to her friend Jennifer (recovering alcoholic) that just recently she started feeling weird about having a glass of wine in front of Kim… Lisa R tries to talk to Lisa V about an intervention of some sort… and Kim seems to be balking at the notion she has a problem… It should be interesting!

Well, that’s it for this episode… I love how Eileen (That Tramp that I love) and Lisa R both try to help out the wonky situations their castmates are in… Obviously, they’re newbies… They will quickly learn, won’t they? Thanks so much for reading… Have a most excellent week! Happy Trails!

    “Perhaps it’s because you don’t ever defend Kyle to Brandi when Brandi says Kyle is never there for you… Or perhaps you don’t even react when Brandi says vile things to Kyle… I mean…I guess I’m assuming you actually wanted to know some reasons why Kyle might be mad at you… But I guess we all know you really don’t care about anyone but yourself.

    Let’s go back to season four…

    Kyle, perhaps it’s because you don’t ever defend Lisa to Brandi when Brandi says Lisa is never there for you… Or perhaps you don’t even react when Brandi says vile things to Lisa… I mean…I guess I’m assuming you actually wanted to know some reasons why Lisa might be mad at you… But I guess we all know you really don’t care about anyone but yourself. You just want everything to be all about Kyle Kyle Kyle!

    • Trashy T says:

      Thank you for this! While I do have some sympathy for Kyle for having had to deal with Kim all these decades, there is no denying she has been quite the asshat at times!

      • Lou Taylor says:

        And for those who have really been paying attention….Kim has alluded more than once that Kyle pulled some shady real estate moves with a inheritance property considered Kim’s that sets them both off. There is some underlying betrayal on Kyle’s part that she desperately doesn’t want to talk about on the air. Even big sister Kathy is not Kyle’s biggest fan and is much closer to Kim. Kyle is too quick to point out repeatedly how much she has done for Kim over the years but I’m betting there is a nasty little story there someplace. Kyle does seem quite jealous of Kim at times. Quite frankly, I find who you choose to be your best friend to be quite telling….the fact that for Kyle it’s the shady, “morally corrupt” Faye Resnik, speaks volumes to me. Kyle is all about Kyle, Kyle, Kyle!

    • not THAT Jill says:

      One small difference-Kyle and Lisa aren’t sisters.

    • California35 says:


      But They are “sisters” lol
      I totaly see what you are saying. I do think of the stuff i didnt like of Kyle or things that made me go hhmm on Kyle. She and Kim are similar. They both want the other to put her first on a friendship or decision or event. Both don’t do that from time to time. The one not getting that, gets so hurt and sides with others. The one doing it, doesn’t get it, until its her turn to be hurt. And ummm this story line has been their story line every season. Oh!! And when the sister does support the other, Kim, i mean the one siding with the sister goes off in a way and on a direction Kyle didn’t want (like puerto rico).

      Kyle does this with friends also, she did with Lisa. She was so hurt that Lisa sided with Brandi. Then she goes on and sides with Brandi. All in the mean time Kyle and Lisa had their own little issues, that made Lisa not be as close to Kyle. Yet Kyle acted like Kim does now… Ah the circle, i came back to the original reason i came to reply to you Rebecca 😜

      So yeah the sister thing is not going to be resolved and at the end they will continue to be “sisterrss”, so …. Yawn.

    • RabbleRouser2010R says:

      Hi Rebecca, I just don’t see how Kyle was suppose to defend Lisa when Brandi was voicing her issues with her.

      It seems like pretty much all the other cast members, have indicated they they think that Lisa does things to suit her own agenda and that she plans ahead. Some folks are just strategic thinkers but the culture of it playing out on a HW shows where petty drama is part of the dynamic, it’s going come across as conniving. It would be kind of hard to Kyle to say something when it was Kyle who put it that tangling with Lisa is like play chess with Bobby Fisher

      What is Kyle suppose to say when Brandi is telling Lisa that her friendship with Sheheena is hurtful to her? Or that Brandi felt used by Lisa, since the whole sit down with the two was really just a back door opening to Vanderpump Rules?

      What is Kyle suppose to say when Brandi tells her that Lisa urged her to bring those stupid magazines to Palm Springs?

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

        Kyle defended Adrienne against Brandi. She defended Kim against Brandi. Then suddenly Brandi is telling the truth when it comes to Lisa? Sorry – no. Lisa has been consistent when telling people to not believe the tabloids. But then Brandi comes out of nowhere to buddy up to Kyle to say that Lisa wants her to bring stupid tabloids that BRANDI bought and BRANDI believes. Kyle is and always will be a narcissistic mean girl.

        • T-Rex says:

          Yes, since Season ONE Kyle thought that she was going to be the “STAR” of the show, and guess what she wasn’t, in fact most folks really disliked her, and all her fake phobias, her lying(yes she lied we all saw it, and bravo looped it for us to make sure), about the two-facecamillizilla digs she said. THEN when TheRoyalVpump was getting all the “fan love”, VileKyle blames HER for “taking” the spin-off she thought that she and Murray were getting about opening their new business. She then teams up with the HoofMaloof, and I most certainly “buy” there was a planned “summit” before the filming to do a “take down” several seasons ago, the TwoFacecamillizilla absolutely said that it was supposed to happen but that she got cold feet and backed out, and wasn’t sure it took place, well, IMO it happened, then TheRoyalVPump washed her “hands” of VileKyle and she got all pissed off, uhm, okay. This is why folks dislike her ass! By the way, she is getting blasted all over the place today. I think that folks that like Kyle saw this episode one way, and those of us that don’t saw it another way completely!

          • not THAT Jill says:

            Camille never said she got cold feet and she never said the meeting was true. The only person who ever said the meeting was supposed to happen was everyone’s favorite truth cannon Brandi Glanville. Brandi played Lisa like a fine tuned fiddle and told her what ever snippit of gossip she heard-her reward was being seated firmly in Lisa’s lap. This meeting was a lie from jump and there was never any sort of proof that anyone was there.

            • PJ says:

              Sorry to disagree but Camille did admit there was a meeting and she ended up not going.

              • not THAT Jill says:

                I believe she said if there was a meeting she wasn’t there…turns out neither was anyone else!!

                • PJ says:

                  You can believe what you want. But that isn’t what I heard her say.

                  • not THAT Jill says:

                    Did you hear her say she was at a meeting at the Palms? Brandi called Camille while Camille was in Hawaii -Brandi says that Camille knew that Adrienne was going to “go after Lisa” at the reunion-Camille says she knew Adrienne was upset with lisa-none of this happened at a meeting because the meeting didn’t exist-it was a way for Brandi to get into Lisa’s good graces-Brandi is a liar-she has shown this many times.

        • First of all, I can’t stand Kim or Brandy. But I’m so glad I’m not the only one that thinks Kyles is horrible. Just like Brandy, she’s had fights with most of the cast members over the years. I thought Brandy was on her best best behavior at Kyle’s party, I can’t believe that the hostess would throw such a tantrum, screaming, crying and cursing in front of her guests. It was way out of line. Then shouting at Lisa that it’s not about her. Ugh! She really is Vile.

          • PJ says:

            I never like Kyle since season one and the way she treated Camille, I always believed Cammile was absolutely telling the truth and Kyle wasn’t. BTW she did invite Brandi to this event there is a clip of her inviting Brandi.

            • not THAT Jill says:

              The party was discussed in front of Brandi -that is not an invite. Brandi and Kyle had a gigantic fight at poker night and didn’t even speak at Lisa R’s jewelry party-Brandi knew she wasn’t invited because she didn’t GET invited.

              • PJ says:

                That’s one way of spinning what happened. But if the party was only “discussed” in front of Brandi when Kyle said “let’s have a mixer……” with Brandi standing right there, that is incredibly rude and confusing.

                • not THAT Jill says:

                  It would be confusing for Brandi-but not for most people. Once poker night happened Brandi would have to totally brainless to think that Kyle would want her at the party.

                  • PJ says:

                    Oh goodness no one does that, mentions a get together in front of people who aren’t invited. Please don’t put this off on Brandi. Brandi WAS invited, for Kyle to say otherwise is ridiculous. It’s like my workmates asking me why I’m at work when they didn’t invite me, they don’t need to invite me I work there I was hired and I’m supposed to be there. All these gatherings are really for the camera so even if Kyle didn’t invite Brandi production did. I’m sure production was hoping something exactly like this would happen and Actress Kyle accommodated them.

                • kit9 says:

                  There’s nothing confusing about knowing you’re not welcome to somebody’s party when you just had a knock down drag out fight with them. It was absurd of Brandi to think she’d be welcome. And lie that she was invited. She wasn’t.

          • Laineylainey says:

            Hi Madame, yay! Finally. Somebody who saw the gay mixer the same way I did. I thought Kyle went waaaaay overboard. And then lashing out aT LVP… As if to say… You will NOT steal this moment from me!!!! She went from zero to 60 really fast ! Did her voice change like the exorcist? She was crying all weakly and then roared/graveled at LVP when Lisa was faux comforting Kyle. It was startling. But hilarious. She is not a good actress. Kim, on the other hand is a bit better at acting.,, but her addiction is taking front and center. The addiction is chewing up the scenery, even more than Kyle chews it up in every scene.

            It’s a double edged sword for Kyle… The addiction gives her a storyline but the addiction is hurting her sister. I don’t think she wants Kim to fail, but she and Kim both know this is their guaranteed paycheck. The not talking about IT. The talking about IT. No matter, without IT, sadly, their dynamic on this show wd be.,, not dynamic.,,but a real snore.

      Lol Rebecca… What an interesting perspective… Don’t we wish a dragon would appear and take a couple of these housewives away? 🙂

    • kit9 says:

      Why would Kyle defend Lisa from Brandi when at the time Lisa was behaving so atrociously to Kyle? Not to mention, she had no clue the details of what had gone between those two besties. Would have been absurd of her to insert herself into their mess.

  2. VV™ says:

    Kyle is acknowledging that Lisa was trying to comfort her on this tweet.

  3. Love all you guys, sorry I was too tired again to post last night, but enjoyed all the comments this morning! Great blog again Ms. Starzy!

    So hubby came to bed last night as I was watching the last of RHOBH and the scene with Eileen, Kim and Kyle was on – he said “Shouldn’t Vince be in the bushes with a beer?” I thought first that was hysterical and second, I can’t believe my husband has watched so much RHOBH for me!

    • California35 says:

      LOL! You two have fun with this, and he is paying attention!!! 😜

    • Powell says:

      LOL SJP. I’m convinced all of your husband’s have paid attention for at least a minute and can name a HW or her husband. LOL I just get a kick out of it when you all tell us what your hubby said.

    • Stars99 #TeamT-Rex... All Day, Every Day!! says:

      Thanks, SJP… Hey wait… did your husband disparage my boyfriend????? lolol… I love that your husband has watched enough to make a comment like that… He’s a keeper! 🙂

  4. RabbleRouser2010R says:

    Good morning all, great blog.

    I feel that BH is going to hit some really dark notes again…and again it’s about Kim’s battle with substances. Kim really needs to be off this show. It seems like everyone but Lisa R is having these ‘nudge, nudge’ and ‘wink winkl’ conversations about Kim…as if us the viewers are stupid.

    Kim’s fell off the wagon and we all know it…and everyone doesn’t want to tackle the issue head on. I mean, some of them even sit back while Kim’s dog maims their children but are too afraid to throw the gauntlet down when it comes to Kim.

    At the same time, i also think it’s weird that Lisa R is leading this intervention charge. it seems very disingenuous to me when Kim is not her good friend or her family member, nor is she a trained interventionist.

    • California35 says:

      Yeah, this is a weird one. Lisa R trying to help with intervention or whatever. Even Kyle, the “sister” won’t like that. Poor Eileen also tried to help Kim and Kyle with the mediation. Im sure she wont try again 😛

      • RabbleRouser2010R says:

        I know, it looked so weird that the preview for next week where Lisa R is talking to Kim about getting help and it looks like Kyle is pretending like she is not hearing all of this and is twirling her hair.

    • Powell says:

      LR and Eileen just don’t like the dynamic and want to help. They both know there’s a line. LR feels like everyone including Kyle is scared to confront it head on and from viewing it w/her BILs she sees the disaster happening before her eyes. Eileen lost 2 sisters and doesn’t want K & K to give up on one another. I believe both ladies are genuine.

      • chismosa aka/ HELP Someone fix RHOBH says:

        i do too. I want friends like LR and ED when i’m their age! (my friends are pretty great so i’ll be ok LOL)
        They’re a great addition to the show and only highlight the messiness of those currently cast… cough cough… bronchitis … cough….

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

      Kim was on something when she went to the restaurant sit-down. Her lack of expression while Kyle was wailing to her was not normal.

    • Stars99 #TeamT-Rex... All Day, Every Day!! says:

      Thanks, my neighbor Rabble… I think you’re right… Some dark times, indeed… but that is the reality of life, I suppose… It’s just painfully obvious that Kim should be off the show…

  5. California35 says:

    Good morning everyone!
    Stars99 thanks for the blog, you funny lady I will read it in parts. but I will read it all, I do not want to miss it. As would the show.

    I miss the beginning, but I didn’t care. I actually missed quite a few scenes, but I didn’t care. I won’t go back to watch the whole episode.

    I only want to watch, the Lisas and Eileen at this point. Kyle also, if not a Kim situaion. They all can show so much more and better scenes for us, why oh why do we get so little of that and so much of the mess? 😒😒

    • Stars99 #TeamT-Rex... All Day, Every Day!! says:

      lol California35… You’re not the only one who can only take me in small doses…lololo!!!! I agree – We could be seeing much better scenes… I’m the eternal optimist… We do have a trip coming up…So that could be fun, no? 😉

  6. WOW! Wow wow wow! That was a good episode and an even better recap. Thanks for the shout out…Namaste.
    I was pleased that Yolo immediately took Bobble to ask when she went to throw Bella under the bus. BIG HUE difference between a 17 year old who made a mistake and a 40 something year old who behaves as though every day is a frat party during pledge week.
    Noone wants to hold Kim accountable except Lisa R. I find this kinda funny.

    • plainviewsue says:

      Namaste, I wish you much luck on recapping the blogs, especially delusional Bobble Head’s!!

      Stars………………excellent job. I found this to be a very disturbing episode, with a sprinkle of fun & warmness. Loved the ladies at the premiere. Loved the scenes with Lisa & her kids.

      The Kim storyline is just getting too real to watch. I would love to know Kim’s reaction to Brandi basically outing her last night.

      I also wish that Yolanda had kicked Brandi out of her house when she said what she did about Bella.

      • Kansas Girl says:

        I hear Kim saying with that vague slurry voice “I didn’t hear her say that” about Brandi outing her.

        • kit9 says:

          Ugh. Yeah, Her head was a foot from Kyle’s at the time but, somehow, magically, Brandi’s comment missed Kim’s ears.

    • Stars99 #TeamT-Rex... All Day, Every Day!! says:

      Namaste – I loved that they used your name during the episode… 🙂 I am so glad that YoYO is calling out Brandi on her stuff… That particular friendship is interesting to me…I think that’s one of the best ways to make YoYo cranky is to demean one of her children – as it would be for us all. Should be interesting…

      • PJ says:

        Brandi didn’t demean one of Yo’s children she used it as an example because there WAS a lot of talk about Yo’s daughters drinking when the DUI happened.

        • kit9 says:

          Nobody was calling a 17 yo with one known incident an alcoholic. Brandi would have cited someone, anyone if she could but she couldn’t do anything but shrug like a moron. She didn’t like Yo’s comment so threw her daughter under the bus to make her back off. It was truly disgusting. Show me pics of Bella staggering around w/her dress up around her waist exposing her a** and her tampon, with her breasts exposed while trying to make out with a the poor guy holding her up.

          • not THAT Jill says:

            What kind of person would call a 17 yo an alcoholic? I didn’t see that being said on any blog-I saw other stuff about Bella being a teenager who may have been rebelling but not one word about Bella being an alcoholic. Brandi does this ALL THE TIME-she fires the big guns the second she’s called on anything. You know else does that-teenagers!!!

  7. chismosa aka/ HELP Someone fix RHOBH says:

    Stars- thanks for the recap— I’m sorry this adoption/ Max issue may be tricky for you- but i don’t know- i only have a 2nd/3rd hand experience as my only maternal uncle – adopted his two daughters when they were already toddlers – it had made such news in San Diego at the time that they were on the news for some special about adopting NON-babies– and the messes these girls are in i can’t even tell you. One’s mother was a hooker/ stripper from Vegas who we think did drugs …. and the daughter was exposed a bit before coming to my tío’s house…..
    The other one had issues as well. So sad. I commend them so much for what they did taking those two girls as their own.
    (i think there are issues with my uncle’s wife coddling them a lot too out of guilt, i don’t know… but …. who knows)

    sidenote- it was so sweet when i heard how this all came about- my uncle was dating his now-wife in boston- she’s American- and she had said to him she could not have kids due to some health issue and he said no problem he only wanted to be with her and they adopted. Made me love him even more. ❤ (Very Harry Goldenblatt 😉 )
    {you know sometimes you never know the exact circumstances of how adoptions came about}

    I personally, having ONLY this ^^^ closest to my family (i do have friends who were adopted, so i'm speaking only of related to me)— i find the way Lisa is handling it very graceful and raw. I think randomly giving Max's name away quickly online in last week's epi when maybe Max had just sprung it up on her? – maybe that's why she was taken aback- i don't know?

    Plus i'm sorry, i DO bring cultural things in- Brits are NOT overly emotional people- so to see her get emo was just so touching to see. But that's JMHO

    VV- i think the party next week has to be for Lisa's bday- she's a virgo. So she's early September- i dont think she's late August. Goes with timeline. I GUESS?????
    but they're not even in europe yet so that doesn't flow….. ughhhhh whatevs.

    Now to the sisterly drama, i have to re-read your cap on that. i feel so much for eileen, i can't imagine that with sisters. Always wanted them, pissed i never had them, and she's SO right about not having the time to be them. Especially saying her sister w/ the recent cancer bout went the 'homeopathic' route- yikes, so we know Eileen has issues with that. I truly love her candor.

    • Stars99 #TeamT-Rex... All Day, Every Day!! says:

      You’re welcome, Chis the Wiz… I too, feel so much empathy for Eileen in the loss of 2 sisters already… That’s got to be horrific! She’s not that old… Yikes. But she also has her on straight and her priorities right it seems… It must drive her crazy the Richards sisters are behaving that way… must be tough for her NOT to scream at them “At least you still HAVE your sister!”

  8. California35 says:

    On The conversation between Brandi and Lisa R:
    Brandi is admiting Kim is using, she is saying that something big DID happen. She did not say what happened, but it sounded to me like something happened, that the problem is huge. Hallooo!! Did Kim hear this? Brandi did not say what happened but she is saying it happened. Acording to the way Kim is acting like who ever thinks she is not sober is against her, how come she is not taking what Brandi said in the same way? I knoe Brandi is talking as a concern friend. That she wants to help and that she is there for Kim, and i am not saying she is not there or that she is not concern. Im nust saying that she is telling stuff about Kim, when Kim is trusting her. I had wanted to mention about the 2:00 am calls too. Brandi is telling us that, again, even though she is not tellong us what Kim says, it is sad that she telling people about the calling. Great friend!

    • chismosa aka/ HELP Someone fix RHOBH says:

      i have to rewatch that part— Brandi said something ‘BIG’ happened??? oh em jee.

      i think Lisa R is just going to get PUNISHED by kim for looking into the ELEPHANT IN THE FRANCHISE. But maybe powers that be or her family will make her see the light and not put blame on lisa R!

      • hawkmoon947 says:

        Maybe the “BIG” thing that happened was that Kim had to be hospitalized for 3-9 days due to a relapse or OD. I don’t think she had any of the random illnesses or injuries she spouted out, like bronchitis, pneumonia, a hernia, cracked rib or ruptured disk. You could see that she was moving and jumping around quite freely during the Poker Night From Hell. I’m getting tired of the saintly sober image Kim is aggressively promoting. She is obviously a hot mess with a lot to to hide (contrary to her assertions). Once she realizes the jig is up and that no one buys her sober story anymore, maybe she’ll admit herself into rehab.

        • chismosa aka/ HELP Someone fix RHOBH says:

          yes, indeed that may be the catalyst for the 20 – day hospital stay.

          But i wonder— after PokerNight2015—> wouldn’t Kyle just have randomly checked in on Kim? I guess she could have texted or called the day after— Kim said blah blah, appeased her…….. then calamity ensued— and she disappeared for a few days (or weeks 😆 )…. Kyle DID look way concerned for Kim when she spoke to Kim in her bed— the morning before the day of the gay mixer.

          I’m saying, i can’t blame Kyle if maybe she didn’t know Kim was “in the hospital”…..

          Plus i found it so interesting that Bravo showed Kyle speaking to Kim about the hospital stay/ pokergate- in the muted “previously, a few weeks ago” scene…..

          Bravo seems to be doing that a lot lately- not showing the footage that they are referencing, just plugging it into the scene after where they talk about it….. I don’t seem to remember this last year.

        • California35 says:

          In other words, what we all suspect (and probably all the wives know). 😉

        • Foxymel(Mel) says:

          Yes…..I think Kim possibly ODed. Wouldn’t they have sent her to a rehab facility? Or maybe it’s that one of her implants ruptured and that could’ve been the reason for her 5-9 day stay at the hospital.

    • lila1star says:

      I think Brandi already has one foot out the door with Kim–it is becoming to heavy for her….

    • Powell says:

      Sorry not buying Bobble wants to help Kim. This is about Bobble feeling needed by someone. Eddie didn’t need her, threw her away. Kim says your my BF and starts telling Bobble stuff. Bobble is feeding her need. Everything she’s done against all these ladies and those gone is because of what her ex did to her. She doesn’t care about anyone but herself. Not even her kids. Kim needs her own special kind of hell and so does Bobble. If Bobble doesn’t stop this self destruction she’s going to take herself down and her kids w/her.

      • chismosa aka/ HELP Someone fix RHOBH says:

        Yup that’s a line from a band i love – something about when we fall in love how it’s the other person ‘needing’ you that brings you self-assurance so you essentially fall in love with yourself. Kids bring that to mothers too, as it makes mothers feel ‘needed.’ It’s all selfish if you boil it down psychologically- PSYCH103-A. But we are all selfish beings- #1!!!!!
        So Brandi, so incredibly stunted in her psych growth—- not even her kids needing her gives her reassurance. Paging Sigmund & Carl to the ‘valley’ to the leased house with the leased car!
        WTF happened in that Glanville household? Why are the siblings normal and she’s not? Or we just don’t “see” their abnormalities because you know, they’re too SMART to be on a HW’s show/ put it out there?

        i don’t get her psychology, as much as she’s a nutcase and a masochistic psychology doctorate student’s wet dream…
        I’m getting tired of HER.

    • kit9 says:

      Yep, it’s the same selective ‘hearing problem’ Kim had at the mixer. She freaks out blaming Kyle for bringing up her problems when it was, in fact, Brandi who brought them up, not Kyle.

  10. T-Rex says:

    WOWSA! I am loving LypsLisa and TheTrampWeLoveEileen, more and more! They are both cutting through the BS that has been invading this franchise and telling it as they see it! Frankly SpaceCadetDrugAddictAlcoholicKim is NOT SOBER! NOT AT ALL, NOT IN THE LEAST! I actually am pissed that her own sister not DO something about it, like go to Producers and say my sister is “F*cking loaded”, and we need to get her help! But Nope those DOLLAR SIGNS are firmly planted in both of their eyes, it’s disgusting, and I can see how LypsLisa can’t figure out WTF about this situation! I can’t stand Kyle, it’s no secret and she gets worse by the minute, look it’s not a contest that your sister has to “like you better” than some random douche on a reality show, that is NOT THE POINT! UGH! Who cares if she HATES you, your job, if you LOVE your sister, is to get her HELP! Stop trying to get this you should love me more crap on TV, you look like an idiot and the audience is ripping her a new one everywhere, because she is making this all about HER! UGH! Have a family intervention(privately) and if she doesn’t want to get Help then she needs to be off this show! STOP LYING ABOUT HER ADDICTION! I am hoping they ALL confront the issue, at the reunion, but we shall see. THELIARSUPREMESLUTBAGSCUMBAGLYINGLIARJEALOUSBITCHMORONSTFUBrandi hit a new LOW for me, and again every time she lowers that bar, I can’t think it gets worse, but she also KNOWS that SpaceCadetDrugAddictAlcoholicKim is NOT SOBER, and is enabling that behaviour, to do what, to get back at Kyle?, it’s utterly disgusting and shame on Bravo for keeping this person on the show!

    • hawkmoon947 says:

      Kim has repeatedly said that the show is her salvation. It’s probably the only other source of income she has other than alimony. Over the years, Kim has also created the impression that she is a delicate flower who might blow away if faced with harsh reality. In reality, she’s probably as tough as nails and has spent her whole life guilt tripping her family and manipulating people. Any time someone does anything that challenges this carefully constructed persona, you see the soft-spoken, awkward and fragile Kim disappear and become an incoherent, enraged she-devil. I can’t blame Kyle or any of the housewives for not wanting to confront or unleash that side of Kim.

    • Butters'Mom says:

      I agree wish I could favorite this a million times.

    • chismosa aka/ HELP Someone fix RHOBH says:

      I’m starting to soften on Kyle… and then i read THIS POST…… ughhhhhh

      You are so right TRex.

      In fact, if LisaLips is SO attuned to what is going on (and Bravo is actually letting her feelings go through the edit, thus enhancing the Kim ‘storyline’…. Bravo is SADISTIC) and can’t STAND the BULL&HIT- she should direct that anger towards the (alleged) addict’s SISTER- who is letting and enabling her sister to be on this show.

      Or at least Lisa should offscreen go at Andy and say get Kim the EFF off the show.

      Lisa stands in her convictions and i really like that about her- but she should also take a look at how Kyle plays a part in this too. Shady Shady Shady…….

      • not THAT Jill says:

        There is one person responsible for Kim Richards and that is Kim Richards-Kim is 52 years old-she’s not a 14 year old child. Kyle has kids -Kim is not one of them. Kyle has no responsibility in Kim’s drug taking decisions-only Kim has that. I don’t blame any of this on Kyle-how could this be Kyle fault? Blaming Kyle takes the responsibility from Kim. Kyle is letting this happen to Kim -Kim is doing this to Kim.
        I don’t think Kyle wants Kim to like her better than she like Brandi but I think Kyle wants Kim to know that Brandi is an asshole.

        • T-Rex says:

          Jnntj, I will agree to again disagree with you! Kyle sits there in a chair and whines and whines “why don’t you love me” , “why do you love her not me”, this is GARBAGE! If my sister were harming herself I wouldn’t care if she hated my ass, I would point blank tell her YOU ARE HIGH, YOU ARE USING, YOU NEED REHAB right in front of those cameras for everyone to see! I would be dragging her off that show so fast and if she didn’t go to rehab, then what happens, needs to happen, but “off camera”. No One can make her stop using, I ABSOLUTELY agree, but you know what, I wouldn’t film with her either, tell producers I am not filming while my sister is all F*CKED up on drugs and alcohol. She is just as bad as everyone else, enabling this person to continue to “use” and have this farcical storyline of her sobriety playing out for the cameras. I am curious to hear Ms Kit’s possible take on this, because she is unfortunately a person that has dealt with this issue.

      • Exit4 says:

        Chis-it’s up to bravo to cast their shows! Lol. Lisa, kyle or Jesus himself could beg to have Kim removed from the show and if they don’t want to do it-they won’t. If Kim wants to do it-what can anyone do? Why does it fall on kyle to have to give up her place on the show for Kim? Why does everyone have to sacrifice things they want to do to help Kim? She obviously doesn’t want it!

        • chismosa aka/ HELP Someone fix RHOBH says:

          Totally, i amended and wrote to Jill below- because it wouldn’t post up here….

          So from what you’re saying— I BLAME BRAVO. That’s it/ final story.
          Kim won’t say no- well guess what JillZ and many MANY others didn’t want to say NO and Bravo fired their a$$es.
          Blame is of course Kim herself and then i blame BRAVO/ production company/ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Andy~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

          • Exit4 says:

            They do have some responsibility. They could choose to air around it. Or the smart thing, either let kim go entirely or at least demote her to friend. When Brandi adopted Kim this season-it changed the game a little. I don’t blame brandis for Kim’s downfall though.

            • chismosa aka/ HELP Someone fix RHOBH says:

              Fo’ sho’ …. i blame Brandi for just about everything else… but not that.

              (not to make this just an **I hate Brandi blog** or anything 😉 😂😂 )

    • Exit4 says:

      I don’t think it’s about kyle wanting Kim to like her better then Brandi. I think it’s about trying to get Kim to comprehend that Brandi doesn’t have Kim’s best interests at heart. To get her to comprehend that Brandi is inserting herself into their relationship. To get her to stop telling brandi things because she will turn it against her. Trying to point out that Kim’s BFF is saying pretty nasty things to and about kyle and Kim pretends she doesnt hear her. She’s not making it about “her”-so much as she’s saying-look at what Brandi is doing to me-and warning her that she’s going to do it to Kim. She’s telling her listen to me and not Brandi and Kim’s not hearing it because Brandi plays into Kim’s ego. Kyle is in the right in this situation. Especially in that extended scene when where Brandi says to Kim, how can you love her (kyle)? And follows up with Would Kathy do this? No she wouldn’t. Kyle obviously didn’t know Brandi said that-but it’s that kind of manipulation that kyle is trying to untangle Kim from.

      As far as the addiction? At this point it’s nobodys job or responsibility to get Kim help. Not her sister(s), not the other ladies, not bravo, not anybody. Kim richards has been this way for years, people have tried to help her, people are continuing to try to help her-but she doesn’t change. She either doesn’t believe she needs help or she doesn’t want it. Or she wants help under her terms and that’s not help. That’s enabling. It seems Kim wants to be enabled-which is why she’s attached herself to Brandi.

      • T-Rex says:

        Exit, I have to completely disagree! IF my sister were an addict and actively using, and she was an addict for many, many, many years, I agree it’s her choice to be an addict.BUT by golly, it would be my choice to confront her “ad nauseum” about it, not slide it under a rug like it’s not happening! REFUSE to film with her when she is clearly high, go to producers and ask them if they want to find her dead in the bathtub on camera for ratings, for interacting with her while she is high on drugs/alcohol, make a big ole stink about it, you have a soapbox. NOT sit there and whine that her sister doesn’t love her, and that’s what she did last night.

        • Exit4 says:

          Who’s to say she hasn’t? We don’t know what goes on behind the scenes and what gets cut out. The level of concern coming from the other ladies tells me there may be more going on and other things may have happened. Kyle is trying to keep certain things off TV-so it’s not sweeping it under the rug.

          I suspect kim has always found a Brandi in her life. And I suspect she’s always allowed that person to influence her and enable her. Until the fit hits the Shan and kyle or Kathy have to pick up the pieces. I think it hurts kyle, that her sister, time and time again, put someone else ahead of her. Because Kim always expects kyle to put her first.

        I get you.

    • kit9 says:

      Kyle cannot get Bravo to stop filming Kim if Kim wants to film. Kyle cannot get her sister to stop drinking. NOBODY can help Kim but Kim. Kyle didn’t start any of this current mess, she’s just dealing w/it. Kyle didn’t make her sister get loaded and stand by and allow her henchwoman to attack her in a deeply personal way. Kyle is angry and frustrated by this. And, that’s not because Kyle is selfish and wants to make it about her, it’s because she freaking human. As far as what to do, I have no doubt Kyle is running through the various scenarios. Should she confront her? Or someone without all the baggage, her adult children, for example? Will confronting her cause her to spiral, turning a lapse into something worse? And, oh yes, things can get MUCH MUCH worse. Kim got loaded for sure on PN. But, Kim actually showed up at her mixer. She showed up to the meeting w/ Eileen, both good signs. If Kim were back to using full out, she’d have never made it out of the house.

      I’ve dealt with these questions first hand literally too many times to count. More often than not, my sister’s taken confrontation as sort of a green light. The alcoholic part of her brains tells her, “oh, well, I’m caught, might as well get really good and loaded”. Then she takes off and holes up in a hotel for days on end. And, what was a lapse becomes a binge and I’m left guilt ridden and wondering if I shouldn’t have kept my fu**ing mouth shut. This is the sort of thing I mean when I’ve talked about the emotional abuse addicts inflict on their families. We’re always wondering what we should have done/could have done. It’s a sickening and unfair position to be in. At the end of the day, I know now all I can do is pray for her and do what I have to do to maintain my own sanity. And first and foremost in that effort is knowing I am not responsible for my sister’s sobriety.

  11. lila1star says:

    Love your blog Starz 🙂 I am so tired of this Kim thing and it seems like it is not going away. I am equally sick of Brandi.
    Kim went on and on about her sobriety over the past couple years and she really did seem to be in a better place. Now we are not hearing any of that. At first I felt bad for Kyle but now I am just over it. Someone here mentioned the book “House of Hilton” and I grabbed it from the library–it is done in a tabloid fashion and the writer doesn’t pretend it is anything other but there is enough factual information to get a picture of the life Kathy, Kyle and Kim had. There mother–referred to as Big Kathy was a piece of work. It is a wonder that they all are not crazy.

    I think I had a point here but dang now I don’t remember–oops sorry. Senior moment. Ok anyway–what is Bravo up to? Are we really witnessing a serious problem or is this a staged event to some extent? Whatever it is it is not fun and this HW show is the only one I am left watching.

    Eileen’s sci-fi bit and the reactions of the ladies was one very funny segment in a rather depressing show.
    Enough said since my brain isn’t working right now lol…. (I am doing taxes–grandkids and this is my break).

    • California35 says:

      Im tire too 😒 lets move on from that sister story of every season.
      I have meant to get that book, since a few years back when it was mentioned here. I have not find it, maybe I will need to go to the labray 😛

      Hey! Can you do my taxes too please? 😁

      • lila1star says:

        Sure why not! It has become a bit of side work for me. Word got out and now I do taxes for about 10 people but right now my head hurts lol The book is easy reading and shines a light–the first go on more about Paris but I learned to skim past the stuff I am not interested in. Big Kathy(mother) hired a guy to teach Kathy nee Hilton how to have sex and please a guy in the back seat of a car. She was married to Richards at the time and he went ballistic so she left his two girls (kyle and kim alone) but Big Kathy dumped him once Kyke and Kims fame was established and they brought in the money.

        The star magic just wasn’t there for sister Kathy even though she apparently can sing so Big Kathy set out for her to marry rich.

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

      Yes, this dark sister tragedy…. I AM NOT ENTERTAINED.

      Why are they purposely ruining this show?

    • Kansas Girl says:

      Remember the scene from seasons ago where the sisters go to a psychic and Kyle has her mother’s ring, and Kim has her mother’s ashes. And they said they talk to the mother. I would suggest that the mother more or less destroyed the normal out of them and left them with so many psychological problems that they are stumbling through life. A co-dependent love/hate sister relationship.

    I had to forward most scenes with Brandi. Note to brandi: You are not Chelsea Handler!!!

    I wish yo would give us her thoughts on this episode since Brandi really did screw her.
    One last thing, Brandi isn’t just a mean bitch when she’s drunk, she’s a mean bitch all the time.

  14. shamrockblonde says:

    Stars! thanks for the recap – quick little funny – I was downstairs cleaning up some dishes and Kelly called down “gaga, come on its time for Shi Shi Shi!” too funny – we four – Katie, Kelly my daughter and myself – watch it together in my room and eat ice cream – Bobby refuses to watch any of the HW shows and watches tv in the den – I hate the way he watches tv – clicking through everything never watching anything for longer than a few minutes – but every so often he mentions something that happened on a recent episode of BH so I think he does watch at least some of it from time to time!

    I liked watching Max’s reaction to his heritage being part Irish! – too cute – I think they are all handling this just fine –

    as for Lisa R and Eileen – while I believe that their intent is sincere and comes from a place of concern and friendship, I can’t help but wonder if their attempts to “help” were either a bit contrived, or production driven – they both seem just a bit too smart to decide to jump into the middle of a family issue that has been going on for years – especially when they truly do not know the Richards sisters all that well – Kyle and Kim do not need anyone to bring the drama for them – those two have it in spades & while I respect their efforts, and my prayers are with Eileen for the loss of her sisters, I cannot imagine what good they thought it would do – Lisa R is a savy classy woman – she knows she is poking the bear when she attempts to understand Brandi head on – and she is way too smart to think that is the best way to understand her, sooo – story line? production? a push to bring the almighty drama? not sure just yet –

    the movie thing was hysterical – all of it! and thank goodness for it –

    *hugs Stars really hard* – I will keep your friend in my prayers – she is blessed to have you in her life –

    • Stars99 #TeamT-Rex... All Day, Every Day!! says:

  15. not THAT Jill says:

    Brandi says she wrote her blog from a hotel room in Chicago(I don’t think her ghost writer is in Chicago..maybe in New Orleans?) she is in Chicago because she is doing the Steve Harvey show. She tweeted that Steve Jarvey is going to be giving her dating tips on the show…ummm didn’t she just say on her podcast that she and JR were serious? She’s turned into the biggest phony in the business!!
    She says she was in New York last week in Chicago this week and then back to New York next week…I will tell you what-any TRUE single parent would NEVER be able to travel for work so much! She should be thanking her lucky stars that her children have a safe loving place to go while she’s out of town-but instead she plays the poor single mother crap! She’s my worst!!

    • T-Rex says:

      Jill, Yeppers, just like I have said now for almost two years, ManCandyEddie has basically “primary” custody of his sons, it’s why he hasn’t gone back to the courts about anything, except the money that THELIARSUPREMESLUTBAGSCUMBAGLYINGLIARJEALOUSBITCHMORONSTFUBrandi “stole” from him in overpayments of support! They go to school near ManCandy as well, not by her, and they done so since he moved in with CrayCrayRimes! He has them most of the time, so again, why is he paying her child support? Bite me! (sorry I am fired up today)

    • chismosa aka/ HELP Someone fix RHOBH says:

      i saw something about Steve Harvey setting up ladies for V day (because he’s been so successful in love RIGHT? )
      i thought it said it was today…. is it today? i need to record….
      or is it not airing yet?

      She’s an idiot.

      And VV——–> why is our Queen in NY? Is she on WWH next week? I don’t get it?

      And Bobble has to be in NY for the finale of CA right? This is why she must have been asking people to please tweet to DT that she was great… so he can PROCLAIM live on tv next week how impressed he was with Brandi- with ALL she’s gone through
      😥 x 1000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

    • Foxymel(Mel) says:

      Do you remember the episode of CA when Kate was telling everyone how organized she etc. with 8 kids? I almost wanted to punch the TV when she pretended to know what it’s like to walk in her shoes. I think Eddie is a good dad to those boys. I just can’t with Brandi and how she can’t possibly have a drinking problem because she does her podcast (once a week) take the kids to school(2-3 times a week) and visit with her manager (1time a week).

      • chismosa aka/ HELP Someone fix RHOBH says:

        serious question: i wonder why Leann is not preggs as of yet? Did Eddie snip snip?
        Poor Leann if she wants/ed kids….. I just wonder. She still has plenty of time, but it makes me wonder.

        • Foxymel(Mel) says:

          LOL at the snip snip.✂️✂️ You know, that’s a good question. I know couples who are adamant about not having kids and other friends that wait a little while. Who knows with those two? Maybe he’s cheated already and she doesn’t want to have kids with him.

    my comment seems to not want to post, trying down here:

    Ash: re: Kyle, yes——-> i love you, want to be you (bc i want a Maggie), would give you a kidney if you needed….

    i should have said also- this is CLEARLY kim’s own responsibility as she is a grown woman, CORRECT.
    However, i feel it gets murky when talking about addiction and those around them….. and that is what the focus was by Lisa last night—- not on Kim herself—- yes i’m sure she knows full well Kim has to have her (2nd, 3rd, 8th) – ‘bottom’ or whatever they call it— to then decide to change for herself. Totes !
    And in fact, this is only my 2nd year watching but i bet on my two dogs’ tails that Mauricio and Kyle have had to financially help out “poor Aunt Kim” a lot – financially, and more……

    So i feel for kyle…
    i just think if Lisa is really entering this show all guns a blazin’ and ready to point out the problems – (of which there are many, GREAT and jadore her for doing this!)- Kyle is kind of an enabler too.

    I agree with what you all said the other day- Kyle needs to just wash her hands of Kim. She truly does.

    It’s murky…. so so murky….. it’s finances for Kim to be on the show…. maybe it helps her feel better to have this ‘job’ (i personally feel KIM eyeballs Lisa and Eileen with pure and utter HATRED because they are working current ACTRESSES)- i was getting that feeling from Pokernight onwards….

    I’m with you… totes. You can call me Al. xx

    (avert your eyes HATERS! )

    • Foxymel(Mel) says:

      Oh good point about Kim possibly hating Lisa and Eileen for being actresses. I gotta give to Eileen, she seems very down to earth to me. I can see why she’s been in the business for so long–gracious and humble.<—–let's see if she changes in her second season.

      Welcome swimdoor! 🙂

  20. What kind of patch is Kim on?

    Sure as sh*t it’s not a nicotine patch.

    Is it the patches they give to people who have cancer to stop the pain? Like Monty’s cancer pain?

    Because Bravo may as well just order the casket now. That is some very very addictive mega uber opiate drug. I’ll go look it up.

    Very bad.


      I know someone who OD’d and died on this patch. She was Stage 4 breast cancer. While her death was imminent, her OD death deprived her family the chance to say their final goodbyes. It is not meant for casual or temporary use. At all.

      Very scary.

      • While I agree with Exit4 in theory- the fact that Kim is actually stealing Monty’s meds (allegedly) makes me agree more with T-Rex.

        This is not a casual little pill popping addiction- this is some scary serious sh*- like 5150 hold type sh*t.

        Kim has got to get offa this show. And as family? Kyle has, IMHO, the responsibility to get her off.

        I’m getting really concerned. This is like Russell all over again. Except we can see this coming a mile down the track.

        • Exit4 says:

          I know a lot of people feel that way-but in order to make that happen-kyle would have to control the production companies decisions and Kims decisions. She could refuse to film-but production isn’t going to stop filming. Brandi tried to get them to cut at the poker party. They didn’t. So, Kim films alone or with someone else. Kyle could beg them to not air something. Do they really care? They’ll air it if they want to. Kyle could try to force them to fire Kim-they don’t have to listen. Kyle could quit and kim could happily sign a new contract on her own. So, Kyles gone but Kim’s still here. She doesn’t have control over the situation and never will. Because it’s just not possible to control everyone else. There’s zero she can do about it.

          • 5150 hold. It’s that bad.

            Exit this isn’t “regular” addiction. This is a pain patch so strong that it is given to only the very worst if the worst for pain.

            My father was a POW. He was given special “attention” because he was an Officer. His injuries are so severe he is in constant and chronic pain, he has no cartridge between some of his vertebrae- he can barely walk and even he cannot get this type of pain patch prescribed to him because it is too addictive.

            You become so Quickly addicted because the drug is going into your largest organ instantly- your skin. Your tolerance builds up so fast that you need more and more patches until you die from an overdose.

            IMHO- Kim is past the point of rehab. Her life is in danger.

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

            Between Kathy Hilton and Kyle Richards – they could force Bravo’s hand if they wanted to. I think Kyle wants the ugly truth out there so Kim can see what she’s doing to herself and her kids. Kim is past the point of no return, and I doubt she’s ever been rational.

            • Exit4 says:

              Kyle is an employee, really. She has no sway. Kathy Hilton may have the famous name-but she can’t dictate anything to a network-she does not have that power. She couldn’t grease any palms to keep her daughter out of jail-she’s not making decisions for NBC/Comcast. Either Kim has to fix herself or they have to let her go.

    • T-Rex says:

      That’s what I am wondering because they MOST CERTAINLY do not give Pain patches to ADDICTS, in fact they are the express group not to get them, anyone with alcohol or drug issues are not to take Fentanyl(this is the most common pain patch) because it can be wait of it, ADDICTING to them, like heroin! Again this is given for chronic pains and yes cancer patients. Sounds like Monty is not the best influence on SpaceCadetDrugAddictAlcoholicKim if he is sharing his opiates and other cancer drugs with her! I have been told at my Cancer center that family members do some times become addicts themselves by self-medicating with their family member’s cancer drugs. Here is the skinny on that very highly addictive drug

      • Interestingly, one of the side effects is trouble breathing. Like you know- bronchitis.

      • hawkmoon947 says:

        A quick trip to Wikipedia revealed that: “Fentanyl is approximately 80 to 100 times more potent than morphine and roughly 15 to 20 times more potent than heroin.” Again, 15-20 times stronger than heroin! What a good idea to keep this kind of medicine around an addict.

      • lila1star says:

        Actually they do give Fentanyl patches to addicts. My brother who is an alcoholic and addict is on them. He had failed back surgery and can barely walk and is in constant pain–thus the patch. At first he was on other narcotics in pill form(ms contin–which is morphine). The patch and the others are all time released meds–the pill version Like morphine and Oxycontin are every 12 hrs. The patch is usually every 72 hrs.

        In the past two years my brother while taking these meds continued to drink and twice he went into seizures and was found in time–rushed to the hospital–put on a ventilator and we all waited. The second time we were told his kidneys were shutting down and for all of us to come as they did not expect him to live through the night. I literally was on my way to the airport when I got the call that he woke up and was no longer at deaths door.

        They (the state of Texas)–sent him to rehab Got him all clean. He was doing well but still had severe pain but of course his pain management doctors never wanted to see him again but through another type of state program they put him on the patch. The thinking here is that is not as easy to abuse but the thing they don’t get is its not him slapping on an extra patch but him drinking while on the patch. He has been told he will die if he drinks–his liver is shot. He says he is sober but personally I don’t buy it nor do I understand what the docs are thinking???

        Kim’s patch may not be a narcotic. It could be anything from a steroid or other type of med unless I missed something.
        I agree with those who are wondering what in blazes is Bravo thinking?

    Now let’s talk about this patch! How the hell did Kim get a hold of it if not from swiping Monty’s? This is serious shit and I hope that there are things going on behind the scenes that we are not privy to because the crazy bitch needs serious HELP!! STAT!!

        About not being rude, man i know some people that get confrontational and learned that at the only party i have ever attended with those people. Thr good thing that came from that party (for me) is to always know when to leave a party, you know habg out a bit and leave before anyone has too much to drink. In the case of those people, i simply dont attend parties where they will be lol

    Excellent blog. I thought it was funny they were eating popcorn and hot dogs too. These four ladies are fun to watch together.

    I “think” Lisa didn’t want to tell Max his birth name on camera because the name would be out there on National TV for whoever wanted to research. I also think she made Max turn around while inputting the name on the laptop because she was afraid he would voice it out loud again for the cameras to catch. I think once the scene kept rolling she didn’t want to break that fourth wall and that’s why she did what she did. IMO.

    • Exit4 says:

      Me too. It wouldn’t be fair to have his birth parents exposed. They aren’t part of this. Even though Lisa knows their name-it’d be a total invasion of their privacy.

      Thanks VV… That’s an interesting perspective – and maybe that is the only reason… and it absolutely wouldn’t be okay for that to be revealed to anyone but Max… I’m just glad at this point he knows the name… He seems very comfortable in the amount of information he has now… Of course, that could change but at least now his curiosity was satisfied.

    Going to Kim’s Insta is like a box of chocolate…you never know what you’re gonna get.

    OMIB-I’m sorry about your dad too. If Kim really is in danger-it still comes down to her. She needs to WANT help. I don’t think it’s all that easy to get a 5150? Even if that happened-they have to let her out. If she still doesn’t want treatment there’s nothing anyone can do. Shes a grown woman-no one can force her into sobriety. It’s all very sad really.

    • Thx you guys, I never talk about it.

      But anyhoo let’s get back to the “fun” stuff- drug addiction! Yay!

      IMHO- she needs a 5150 hold. Then she needs to be physically restrained until she is detoxed.

      Then and only then can rehab or wanting anything other than drugs can maybe happen.

      Again, JMO? When Monty dies, Kim will OD.

  33. Orson says:

    Okay, you’d all best get comfortable for this. I just filled my coffee mug (not a Chanel mug, I got it at WalMart, but it’s the same size as the one Kyle has) and opened a fresh pack of smokes. So go ahead, get what you need. I can wait.

    :: glaring at You Know Who You Are waiting for you to stop fidgiting :: You done?

    Okay, now for a new edition of …

    Orson Speaks!

    I have to give LisaR and Eileen (That Tramp!) props for calling it Kim’s situation as they see it and trying to do something about it. This is an example of that saying “A new broom sweeps clean”, I guess. They certainly, IMHO, have good intentions but their good intentions are doomed to failure. A TV intervention will just NOT work. Nuh uh. First of all, an intervention by some Johnny Come Latelies, like you two, has no teeth. I’m sorry, ladies. Secondly, for a successful intervention, ALL of Kim’s support system has to take part: No exceptions. Her sisters, her children (all of them), all the people who have been mauled by her dog, her castmates who are “friends” with her, and her employer. And that’s not going to happen.

    Why not?

    Well, sister Kathy, Queen of I Married Into Tons Of Money, So Screw You! will have to come off her throne, attend, and take an active part. Which isn’t very likely because she’s a Hilton, So Screw You! Besides, the Royal Family will be vacationing in Europe or somewhere. Bravo, in the person of Andy, will have to put morality over rating$ (remember, he managed to “manage” the Russell Armstrong suicide, so he thinks he can handle anything), and tell Kim “Look, you have to get your stuff together or you’re fired”. Kyle is going to have to accept that she (Kyle) is messed up from this too and become an active member of Al-Anon. And both sisters are going to have to be willing to turn off the $$ for Kim too. And Kim’s children and their fathers will have to play also. Maybe a couple of lawsuits from the dog mauling victims too? And they’d have to find a way to shut the Queen of Deflection Brandi down also. That would probably require a restraining order and there’s no way a judge would grant one. Anything less, and QB will just dig in her designer high heels and hold firm to her “friendship” with Kim.

    And even if they did that, they’d have to arrange to put Kim on a plane (okay, then can afford this) right away to a real rehab facility. Not Promises or one of those 2 or 3 week vacation/spa/rehabs. but a real rehab, like Hazelden in Minnesota for a minimum of 3 months type program. She’s going to have to be weaned off EVERYTHING and undergo serious psychotherapy.

    So, I’m sorry to say, it’s not going to happen. Kim is going to be remembered as one of those Tragic Examples. It’s a shame, but the world isn’t fair: the world is round.


    Orson has spoken!

    Okay, you can quit squirming in your seats and go potty now. Go on. Shoo!

    • TexasTart says:

      LOL at calling these sessions “Orson Speaks”. I would have commented earlier but first you sent me off to get stuff to settle in and then for a potty break…I got distracted and took me a while to get back!
      You are right about the intervention framework. And how it needs to be a serious place and out of her element that she goes to. First detox and then several months rehab. I’m with you, I don’t think any of that will happen – to get her loved ones on the same page and KIM has to want to help herself to stay in treatment. Seems unlikely because I don’t think she’s hit bottom. Even that hospital stay, the 5, 6, 7 or 9.days that supposedly scared her – safe to say the fear was soon forgotten. Sigh.

    • T-Rex says:

      Sending you a HIGH FIVE! (I am emoji-challenged so you have to take actual words!)

    • sparklemuffy says:

      Thank-you Orson…. golf clap.. Kyle is part of the problem–not the solution. I’m not sure she can ever be part of a solution as she has taken Kim’s $$$$ for a long time. (Not saying she is part of the evil, but it doesn’t matter, she benefitted from Kim’s child labor and Big K’s evil plot of fame and fortune over any hope of children being children. ( we can imagine the pitting of sister against sister during those days) The LORD only knows what Kim went through as a child actor. Kyle should get help and remove herself from the situation—BUT NO– ask yourself— why would she continue to be part of the drama? Kyle is STILL benefitting from her sister. what story arc has Kyle had every season? Camille?( that worked out well for Maurice’s business) KIm? Lisa V? Kim? KIm?Taylor? Who are Kyle’s friends? Faye? Taylor? Does anyone really believe she and Mauricio pay Kim’s bills? She’s also listed as selling real estate for Hilton Hyland – how did I miss that? There’s more fambly drama/$/stuff than we could ever shake a stick at– Big K died in 2002– after Kim nursed her through cancer. I think Kim takes the hard part and Kyle complains.

    • California35 says:

      Yep, i willl tell you if she ever gets a real intervention, even the televised one, not at bravo, THEN maybe she will try to make a change. Until, then and even then she can fail, she will be in a serious recovery process.

    • Powell says:

      Love it Orson and ladies. I think all you have said is exactly how it has to go down. If only it would really happen.

      She needs to go to that Dual Diagnosis place in Dallas that he sends people to…or some other place he talks about. I think Kim suffers from Bi polar disorder and addiction. I realize in the deepest parts of my cold shivery heart that she is so very sick. She is surrounding herself with people that will continue to support this debacle and she WILL end up dead.
      My own experience with a loved one who suffered from addiction was heartbreaking and she was only an addict without a mental illness. After finally getting sober, she lived a very long life but had to deal with many medical issues that were perhaps a part of her addiction. I have participated in an intervention and it is hard. I was young and probably should not have been there. You must speak the truth AND YOU MUST FOLLOW THROUGH. If you tell the loved one the money train has left the station, it CANNOT make another stop. I can see that the money will be very hard for Kyle and Kim to take away because they have plenty.

  34. TexasTart says:

    Just read up on what y’all were.chatting about and I have questions!!

    How do we know “the patch” Brandi said Kim has is Fentanyl?

    Several components to a 5150 but is she a danger to herself due to a mental disorder? I guess the question is is drug addiction a “mental disorder” by California law?

    • We don’t. I have decided. That is all.


      I have no idea- but it makes sense given everything.

    • T-Rex says:

      Tartsy, pain patches are few and far between, unless you are using any “snake-oil” patch from an over the counter pharmacy or walmart. The only real prescription Pain patch available is Fentanyl.

      • TexasTart says:

        Okay, I see. Thanks T-Rex and OMIB.

      • WasLurking says:

        How do we know it’s a prescription pain patch? My friend with back issues uses the over the counter patches……….. she’s been given script ones but very limited.
        We don’t KNOW shite about it really.

        • not THAT Jill says:

          While we may not know “shite” about-that won’t stop us from speculating…it’s what we do!

  35. TexasTart says:

    Chismosa – since we both liked her music…
    does she look like Camile in this pic, or is it just me?!

  36. Oooh MobWives on now. Ratalie has good makeup today. Awesome fake eyelashes. I want them on LVP.

    How can such a rich bitch have such bad false eyelashes? This little hood rat has it more pulled together than her?

    My world is tilting on it’s axis.

    • Ooooooooh boy 🐟🐟🐟🐠🐠🐠🐠🐠🐠

    • Jules says:

      Oh my. that is where my brother and I went for a quick casual lunch when I visited. One of those times he called and said what are you doing, i said shopping, he said leaving work now let’s meet for lunch. we walked down the street and he said this is where his little girls 9 and 12 eat all the time for italian.

      I rambled but I miss seeing that family and living the good LA LA land life with them.

  37. JILL 🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨

    • Veena (NMD) says:

      This is like that Vancouver housewife – Ronnie – and her rehab wine. For those of you that didn’t watch RHOV, Ronnie was a mean drunk who stopped drinking after her daughter almost choked and she was – allegedly – too drunk to react quickly – but still managed to get drunk a few times after that incident – so sort of a wet dry spell.

      • So like say Kim coming out with a “natural- homeopathic” line of “anxiety- and/or – chronic pain relief” patches ………

        • TexasTart says:

          Giggle. 🙊
          Hey, looks like that wine bottle artistry has been on the back burner a while…it’s dated October 2014.

          • Orson says:

            Maybe she’s getting the idea how thin the Bravo ice she’s been standing on is getting and decided she needs a different source of income. Like all those endorsement deals she’s being offered (hee hee) won’t dry up once she’s fired.

            • TexasTart says:


            • T-Rex says:

              Aaaah well you see, Bravo in their infinite need to make money off their Ho’s, after losing out big bucks on Bethenny’s deals, is also now a part of these “side deals”, so again she isn’t going to make shit off of this. This isn’t something she made, her winery, her actual product, etc. This is just yet another product that will “slap a Ho” wife’s name to it to generate more sales. She will receive nominal fees for appearance and make more money off bottles sold at these appearances, as opposed to what is sold in a store, which I think they get about 3 to 4 cents a bottle. I think the reason VPR Sangria is in Pandora’s name, is that this is their recipe and they have a patent pending on their recipe. Since Pandy isn’t a Ho-wife, Bravo would be excluded from any “deals” with their products. SMART!

      • Powell says:

        I remember. I wish that had gotten renewed. I’m still subscribed to the guy Parker who downloaded the epis on his YouTube channel. YouTube made him stop posting the epis to his channel. Then MTH found the epis online and gave us the link.
