Top 10 Reasons Kim Richards Hasn’t Been Blogging
- Kyle didn’t call and remind her.
- She broke her fingers. All 10 of them.
- She’s been too busy writing a book about all the things Harry Hamlin has been doing.
- BG’s Ghostwriter has been too busy writing fiction for BG that she doesn’t have time to write for Kim.
- She has an ingrown toenail.
- She got lost going from her kitchen to her office. Still can’t find her laptop.
- She has been busy auditioning for Drinking with the Stars. (yes, I went there)
- She has been alphabetizing Monty’s meds.
- She is too busy wiping out her dresser drawers and folding clothes.
- Kingsley ate her.
“I Am Done With Kim Richards”
Lisa is proud that the season finished without anyone having to go to the pokey. Lisa says she always tells the truth and is authentic. She says she is learning from her mistakes and growing as a person. I imagine that watching yourself on this show would really make most people look inward…notice, I say most.
Lisa was pretty emotional about the swing set. I relate. We took our’s down last summer and gave it to a family with young children so that they can enjoy it. Lisa tells us she is fiercely protecting of HH and the girls (as she should be) and will not allow anyone to tarnish her family.

Moving on to the weird party that Adrienne threw for some reason…
…I feel like I need to remind you that I was done, done, DONE with Kim Richards at this point. I went to this party with zero intentions of talking TO Kim, ABOUT Kim, and definitely nothing around Kim’s forbidden topic of sobriety. I have been scolded, yelled at, and thrown really f—ing hard into the lion’s den about it, so for my own sanity and peace of mind I. Had. To. Be. Done.
Can I share a secret with ya’ll? I am DONE with Kim Richards, too. I am So. Fucking. Over. Her. Did I mention I was so over Kim? Lisa is a wee bit skeptical when Kim walks towards her and asks to have a conversation. I imagine she thought she was on Punked!
Rather quickly, it became quite evident that Kim was out to hurt Kyle. Kim was making it very clear that she chose not to believe what Kyle had told her, and she was trying to drag me in to help take down her sister. Let’s be real here for just a moment: We all know Kim doesn’t like, trust, or want to be around me at all, so why does she need my confirmation or validation of the conversation? Kim was going to hear exactly what she wanted to hear, regardless of anything I said, because that’s exactly what she does with everything anyway.
Lisa was in a Lose-Lose situation. Had she backed Kyle and sold Brandi up the river, she would have risked another verbal assault from Kim. So, she chose the path of least resistance. Not sure I would have chosen differently given Kim’s volatile behavior.
Listen, I completely understood that both Kyle and Eileen had their opinions and strong need for me to justify Kim’s questions, but the “she said this and she said that” back and forth was just too much. Like I mentioned in last week’s blog, I did what Brandi asked by going to Kyle with this information, and it was now up to the Richards sisters to figure out.
So, now she is in a real pickle. Kyle feels betrayed and just wanted Lisa to back her up. Kim wasn’t gonna believe anything Lisa had to say. As we have all said time and time again; you cannot reason with an unreasonable person. You cannot discuss someone’s sobriety when they are not fully sober. Denial ain’t just a river in Egypt.
I never had any intentions of making Brandi look bad during our lunch conversation, because I really felt she was speaking from the heart about her friend, Kim. It’s just a shame that she didn’t feel the same about my role in the conversation, and, yet again, she denies what was actually said. But I guess you live and you learn, and you slowly start to identify a person’s true colors, which is all just a part of this process.
BG is so desperate to keep Kim “on her side” that she is unwilling to tell her the truth. ENABLER. She yells at Kyle for not helping her sister, yet, everything she is doing is so against the code of conduct presented under al-anon.
Lisa says she did share concern for BG regarding her father’s recent health issues. She can relate since her parents are getting on in years. If I was Lisa (or Lisa V. or Eileen or anyone for that matter) I could not acknowledge this issue sincerely. I don’t care. I have a father who has had a lot of healthy issues over the last 10 years and I have never not once used his health as my reason to treat others badly.
I am still left bewildered and baffled with absolutely no closure from that party. I was just kind of left sitting there at the party dumbfounded by the turn of events and also by the way I was treated by Kim Richards. It’s so not OK to speak to people the way she does. That said, I do think Monty is a very sweet man, and I absolutely wish him the best.
This finale was a dud for me. It was anticlimactic and left me in a bleech mood. Nothing was resolved. We are left waiting for the reunion. Oh joy.
“Say how you feel, find your passion, love with every ounce of your bones, stand up for things that matter, don’t settle, don’t apologize for who you are… Be f—ing brave”
“Trouble Is Brewing”
Eileen is home and the dust is a settling. Eileen’s heart was a wee bit broken watching the swing set come down. She felt the same way when they took down Jesse’s. Oddly, Eileen is excited to go to Adrienne’s party. WTF was this party for? Did anyone figure it out? And Adrienne looks more and more like that cat woman in NYC who has had too much plastic surgery.
Sure enough Kim confronts Lisa R. about what Brandi said during their lunch. Lisa is reticent, and understandably so, to discuss this. She’s dodging the issue, but maybe just saying what she said to Kyle would help everybody stop playing these games! Lisa R. being vague is not helping the situation and Kim leaves, apparently thinking that Kyle lied about it. Yolanda, Lisa V., Kyle, and I try to make Lisa understand she has to tell Kim what Brandi said. She gets it, and God bless her, she does go to talk to Kim. And when she does? Kim is dismissive and doesn’t want to hear it! OMG! Well, this is the definition of a lose/lose situation for everybody! Now, I’m just exhausted from even witnessing this. No one is listening or being honest, and it will never get resolved at this rate.
Kim does not want to hear the truth in any of this. She lives in Neverland. Her life is fiction. She realized BG is still upset about her dad’s health. Not the best time to have a conversation, but BG never cares when she decides to throw shit at others. Double standard? Kim and BG sit down and Kim asks if she requested an intervention…she doesn’t ask if BG has been spreading rumors about her having probs or saying things are worse than what we have seen. Nope, she just asks if BG wanted to intervene (yes, that is what Kim said at the party!). No, BG did not say, “Hey, I think Kim totally needs an intervention!” She chimed in with the suggestion that everyone needs an intervention and hey, by the way, Kim is way worse than what you have seen!
Now, Lisa R. is apologizing AGAIN. WHY, people, WHY? I propose a Real Housewives Drinking Game: take a shot every time Lisa R. unnecessarily apologizes to Brandi and Kim (and you better have a designated driver, because you’ll be really, really drunk).
Shit. Why didn’t Eileen come up with this idea earlier in the season? We played the drinking game during NJ and every time someone bought up The Cancer <drink>. This would have been super fun this season.
It’s the end of the night and the end of this season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. What a journey it has been. I’ve made some good friends, had lots of adventures, lots of laughs, and, frankly, witnessed way too many fights. It surely has been one hell of a ride! And one I will not soon forget.
One might think this HW shit would be super easy after playing a soap star, but Eileen is proof that you can’t write this shit!
“You Can’t Confirm What Didn’t Happen”
BG starts by telling us how she is praying for the loved ones that were on that German plane that went down in the French Alps. She then feels the need to share that she prays when she gets on a plane and that she includes her X and has now added LeAnn to her prayers. I have a feeling Mrs. Cibrian would be perfectly content being left out of BG’s prayers. Oh, and hey, by the way, her wine (urine) is coming out and it’s called “Unfiltered Blonde”. I just threw up on my mouth. My parents are in FL and I sent them on a mission to find Lisa V.’s Sangria down there since it is not sold anywhere here in Ohio. I will not be hunting down any Unfiltered Urine.
BG goes on to re-write reality. She wants us to remember certain things but then we should be black out drunk and forget about all the shitty things she did this season. Oh, and she takes a jab at Kyle by pointing out that Kyle doesn’t own a yacht or plane…cause Kyle says in her opening “Yachts and planes are nice…” Um, I don’t take that to mean she owns either. But, this is BG.
This episode opens with Rinna tearing down a swing set, but her home interviews are still about what she perceives as Kim’s issues to be, not the actual touching moment of what the swing set tear-down symbolizes or her own family (I can’t wait for her daughters to write their Brooke Shields-style memoir when they are age appropriate). LR says she feels sorry for Kim and cares about Kim and wishes Kim well. The truth is a lot less pretty. Some people have been attacking Kim’s sobriety online this week, but we won’t name names. BTW, Kim is sober and not online. She is busy caring for serious ill family members and driving back and forth to doctors and hospitals and being strong for her family.
OK, Lisa R. posted some pretty crappy things about Kim this week on social media and I was a bit shocked. She is supposed to be Kyle’s friend and if a friend of mine went after my brother (whether we were getting along or not) I would be livid. Not cool. Lisa R. suggested on twitter that the reason why Kim hasn’t blogged is because she isn’t sober (or something to that effect). Kim has never really blogged consistently for this show. This might be why she is the lowest paid BH housewife. BG continues to take stabs at Kyle and bitches about the book signing that she wasn’t able to be at.
Adrienne’s party is the big finale of our journey this year. Everyone is there, and Adrienne always excels at events. So here we go. First off, my mind was not on the party at all. My father was recently hospitalized, and I didn’t leave his side for two weeks. It was very serious, but I had to return home to my boys. He was still not conscious, but I needed to get home to run my household–a party was the last place I wanted to be, but I had promised. That’s why I decided to bring the few people that I felt I could depend on in that moment. My friends and J.R. have been there for me during my father’s health scare and over more then a month of hospitalization–that was and is what remains what’s important to me.
Wait, you had to return to your boys BUT you made time to go out for this ridiculous event? You can’t have it both ways! I am bored with this.
What we saw on the finale was an efficient Kim quietly confronting Lisa R., then leaving Lisa R.’s table somewhat amused. Lisa R. couldn’t confirm the veracity of her gossip, because I DIDN’T SAY IT. Thanks again to Bravo for showing the truth in a flashback last week.
Did we seriously watch the same show? Does she watch with special glasses? Maybe she has a hearing aid she forgets to turn on before the show comes on. Perhaps her live in hair-gay can turn it on for her. BG tells us she left because she was still upset about her dad. And here we are on the excuse train and her poor dad is thrown under the tracks. AGAIN, let me reiterate, my dad has gone through cancer, having 2 titanium rods placed in his back, knee replacement, suffering a hernia in his bowel, shingles on his head and face…and not once have I exhibited bad behavior that I blamed on my dad’s poor health. If I did, my dad would disown me!
As you hear, at the end of the finale, I am wistful, yet, wiser, and I think in a stronger place. I love and loved being there for Kim and being Kim’s friend, and I love that she was, is, and has been here for me. Even more so, I’m grateful and blessed to have Yolanda in my life; she is no bullsh–. Even when suffering herself, she is still so selfless. Yo is very special to me, I love her, she gets me, we have fun together, and I value every moment we spend together. I always will. As for the rest, I hope to share laughs and fun again, maybe tears, but hopefully only joy.
Dear God in heaven, NO! Please please please do not let this woman back on MY show! Please?!?
“I Understood Brandi’s Frustrations”
I see relief setting into The Divine Ms. Pump.
I understood the frustration of BG as she endeavored to restore the relationship that we once had, jokingly, maybe sometimes even genuinely, and we were in place of harmless banter, as I witnessed the bonds broken between the other women, the bond that last season was united by a common enemy…me.
BG doesn’t seem to be happy unless she is the center of attention and she is like a toddler; if she can’t get good attention, she will gladly accept negative attention. When the shit flies back in her face though, she will throw it on whoever is closest. Lisa acknowledges that BG seems genuinely sorry for what she has done in the past and prob misses out on all the benefits she received as a friend of Lisa V.
I never once said the slap was hard. The endless accusations last season of lying, deportation, bankruptcy, Ken abusing Yolanda…all that was accumulative and there was not enough there to counter balance it. I remember her clearly stating, “I fed that bitch ” in regard to me on Andy’s show, which was hurtful as we all the know the truth.
PREACH! BG went low. Really low when it came to her attacks on Lisa. While I think Lisa can forgive, she is like an elephant and she ain’t never gonna forget.
When I spoke with BG, of course I felt empathy for her situation with her father, but that had nothing to do with me. I hear he is doing well, thankfully, but I barely know him. It would’ve been hypocritical, after Amsterdam, to call offering sympathy, when in the last nine months there had been no interaction between us at all, apart from filming.
I couldn’t have said anything either. I am one of those people that believe the opposite of Love isn’t Hate; it’s indifference. When I am done with someone and have moved on, I am completely indifferent to them. If they were on fire, I wouldn’t pee them. I wouldn’t care. (ok, that makes me sound heartless…I really am not. But given what BG has done to Lisa over the last 2 seasons, I don’t blame her for walking away.)
The way you know if somebody loves you is the way they make you feel. If somebody is sorry, you would feel reassured that they would try not to perpetuate the same behavior. The big question here is, I didn’t change from last season, so why this desperation to have me back in her life? Now is there a realization that maybe last year she was wrong, malicious, and vindictive? That should be the conversation. Anyway, I digress. One thing I know for sure is if my father’s life was held in the balance, I would be there at his side, not arguing about the dynamics of a superficial conversation, but it was our final party at the end of the season.
I say this to my kids all the time. I don’t want to hear an apology unless you sincerely promise to not ever do it again. Apologies are meaningless unless you truly understand what you did wrong and don’t ever plan to do it again. BG apologized to Eileen for throwing the wine on her and then did essentially the same thing to Lisa. And I agree with Lisa. If my dad was allegedly so sick that I feared he could die at any moment the last place I would be is at some dumb party with angels hanging from the ceiling.
In a nutshell, did BG state that Kim needed a intervention? No, I don’t know she did. I believe Lisa misinterpreted her saying, “Maybe we all need an intervention” as “Maybe we all need TO DO an intervention.” Many other things were said, and it begs the question, was BG’s allegiance to Kim? When talking about Kim’s fragile state publicly to her friend Jen and then Lisa, I would say not. I know that Lisa left that conversation after many statements from Brandi with the impression that Kim needed help. That was the point…The emphasis should not have dwelt upon one word. I had urged Lisa not to intervene in Kim’s sobriety, but she was motivated by her personal history and felt justified in confronting her.
BG was pretty clear that what we all saw at Poker Night was just the tip of the iceburg. Now, maybe that was all BS and maybe she was just trying to get Lisa R. to pay attention to her. The point is that she said Kim was in trouble and was in need of help ASAP. BG is denying that she brought up the intervention…big deal. Everything she SAID alluded to that. The Divine Ms. Pump thanks us all for tuning in. Your welcome Ms. Pump. You are so very welcome. BTW, I am available for tea anytime in your closet or mine although mine will be way more cramped and not nearly as organized.
