Kyle Richards: Brandi Glanville is Angry, Disgusting & Nothing She Says Makes Sense!

Posted on Apr 10 2015 - 10:44am by Dani-K

In honor of National Sibling Day, we thought it only appropriate to highlight “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” star Kyle Richards’ Bravo blog, as she addresses the “worst place” relationship status between her and sister, Kim Richards. As you might expect, a lot of their problems are blamed on Brandi Glanville.

“I’m the first to say that my sister’s and my relationship has obviously had its ups and downs, but this has by far been the worst place our relationship has ever been in. I have seen how Brandi has tried to turn her against me. If she sincerely cared about Kim, instead of using her as a prop, she would want her family to be close to her.” Kyle added, “In stark contrast, Brandi seems to enjoy the downfall of Kim’s and my relationship. Like she succeeded somehow.”

Kyle feels that Brandi is angry, disgusting and nothing she says or does makes sense to her.

“I don’t really know how to address Brandi’s comments about everyone, because nothing she says makes any sense to me. Her behavior toward everyone has been so disgusting, yet she seems to be the one who is angry at everyone. She is filled with so much anger and hatred that it is uncomfortable to be around. From texting Lisa R. that she is an anorexic old hag to her home-wrecker comments about Eileen, telling Lisa V. that she was jealous Max’s friend didn’t want to f— her…disgusting.”

That was pretty disgusting, so why is Brandi so angry, according to Kyle?

“Brandi cannot stand to see Lisa V. and me being friends again, laughing and having fun. So she has to make rude, snide comments. For the record, Lisa V. is not selling her house, and she has expressed regret for making a “flippant comment” about that in the past…We have moved past our issues.”

Kyle says that she’s reached a point where she is tired and “can’t do it anymore” in regards to her relationship with Kim. Of course, once Brandi drops Kim like a F-bomb, Kyle will most likely have to step back in to help pick up the pieces.

“With Kim, I am constantly being accused of things I didn’t do and made to feel that all our problems are my fault. I am tired of being blamed for everything and am at a point in my life where I just can’t do it anymore. There is some sort of relief when I see it played back on video and know that I am not crazy, and the events at Eileen’s did play out exactly how I remember it. But even after seeing it on camera, Kim will not admit that she was wrong and still wants to blame me. I know that whatever I do, she will find fault in. So why even bother trying anymore?”

Kyle briefly touches on Brooke’s wedding, however, she doesn’t elaborate as to what went down that was “unspeakable” and “unforgivable.”

“When Kim said she wanted to see where we were at, because there were a lot of things coming up that she needs to figure out, I knew she was referring to her daughter’s wedding. I lost it. Clearly.  It’s been way too emotional and upsetting to me, and I couldn’t take it anymore.”

Kyle ended her blog with a request of the viewers and fans.

“Thank you all for your kind words and support. I would like to ask you all, regardless of what your opinion is, to please be kind on social media. There are no winners here. No “teams.” This is my family, regardless of what problems we have right now.”

    She’s damned if she continues to try & have a sister-ship with Kim. Damned if she backs away from her. :/
    BUT once it starts to effect Kyle’s family, she needs to back away! Don’t taint your own family with Kim’s choices-choosing Brandi over you.

    • MorningYawn

      I’m so with ya girl! This has obviously affected her family emotionally… But not, with the dog bite, it’s affected them physically. She needs to concentrate on those who love her and distance herself from those who don’t.

      • MidwestMiddie

        Has Kyle ever said why she didn’t notify the authorities about
        Kingsley biting her daughter?

        • Bad Barbie

          Because most likely Kim begged… And Kim should be lucky that she didn’t because someone is already suing her. You dislike Kyle, so most you say about her is biased anyway.

          • Guardian

            I’m wondering as I’ve read that Kyle is now suing Kim over this(?) but since her health insurance company would have paid the medical bills they may be the one forcing the suit. I have seen this with car wrecks and other accidents with injuries involving medical care.

          • MidwestMiddie

            Interesting …… I hadn’t read about Kyle suing Kim.

          • Guardian

            Not sure where I read this and who knows if it’s true? I do think had it been reported the animal (with its track record) would be removed and possibly put down.

          • Bad Barbie

            I dont think Kyle is suing her. Someone else (a family friend that was staying over ) is because she also got bit by Kingsley.

          • Guardian

            Thanks BB – so much out there!

          • MidwestMiddie

            Wouldn’t the doctor(s) treating Kyle’s daughter for the dog
            bites have to report the dog and dog’s owner to the authorities?

            LOL – You found me out and here I thought I had covered up my
            dislike of Kyle. Too funny!!! I dislike Kyle, Kim and Brandi on the RHBH.
            : )

          • Guardian

            I was just about to say when “bites” came into emerg we had to report them to the police and to the local Humane Society (an extension of the police department in the city I was working in). We also had to check with the vet re whether their vaccinations were up to date, etc. Lots of calls and paperwork.

          • MidwestMiddie

            Everything listed makes sense, so I wonder why we
            haven’t read that these procedures were followed in this case?

          • RoundAbout ❾

            There are a few holes in the laws concerning dog bites and reporting them in California from what I’ve read on the subject. It appears that Kim has managed to convince those who have been bitten to seek treatment at an ER in another county. Also, in CA, there is an allowance for a dog biting if it is proven that the dog was first taunted or provoked by the victim. I think that is why Kim is always so adamant that she told Alexia to stay out of her bedroom. Kim is 3 french fries short of a happy meal as well as being not sober, but she’s got a brain in there that still functions well enough to protect her ravenous mutt. Google the subject of Kim Richards dog bite and you will probably get many of the same articles I read which included the above info, a little more detailed.

          • MidwestMiddie

            Thank You!!

          • RoundAbout ❾

            This topic came up on another board where I follow along and I realized when reading over the other posters’ comments, I didn’t really know much about the incidents with Alexia or Ms Rozario so I did a quick search…then I wound up spending the next couple days reading. I’m glad I did because after realizing the lengths she’s gone to, to protect that dog when he’s attacked her family & loved ones, I finally opened my eyes and saw what a mean, nasty person she is.

          • Guardian

            We were required by law and then it was up to the police to investigate, interview all parties and make a determination. Sometimes what we had been told would suddenly differ from what the victim(s) or the dog’s owner(s) initially stated to us.

          • Mimi Mayes

            Kay Rozario is the elderly woman who was bitten by Kingsley. Kim begged her not to call 911 or to tell anybody about the bites. She was hospitalized, and Kim did not help with expenses. She is suing Kim.

          • Guardian

            Wonder what Kim would do if Kingsley chewed up one of her children or Monty?

        • MorningYawn

          Not that I know of. I assume she is trying to cover for Kim (again).

    • Jennymckitty

      Exactly. It is a lose-lose situation. What makes it worse is Kathy also punishing Kyle and both of them using their children as pawns. Now that the children are older and can make their own decisions, it may be easier to walk away.

      • Bad Barbie

        I wonder if Kyle’s daughters were uninvited from Brookes wedding too? If Brooke allows her mother to di such thing, she is another bish. I would tell my mother… “my wedding my guest”.

        • Guardian

          I wouldn’t put it past Kim. She is on a mission to destroy. Addicts have no boundaries. She may (may not) be sober but her behavior is a far cry from sobriety.

        • MidwestMiddie

          Why is Brooke having a second wedding to the same man?
          Ridiculousness – BH Style!

          • Bad Barbie

            And a Bachelorette party when she has been married to the dude for over a year already.

          • MidwestMiddie

            LOL
            As I wrote earlier – if Brooke ever chooses to divorce this man
            will she have to do so twice to make it legal?
            : )

          • Guardian

            I was surprised when Kim and Maloof suddenly showed up in a scene together. Crossed my mind if Kim hooked up with Maloof hoping that with their re-connecting AM would throw the party for her daughter in Vegas, gratis?

        • Jennymckitty

          IDK, now that they are grown. I think that Kyle is on good terms and close with her nieces and nephews but you can see how this would impact her whole family when they were young.

        • GinaXOXO

          Kim never said she didn’t invite Kyle. As a matter of fact Kim said she wants Kyke to have a relationship with her kids. The only person saying otherwise was Kyle.

      • GinaXOXO

        The person in common is the person to look at more closely. Both Kathy and Kim aren’t talking to Kyle. Kyle isn’t innocent.

        • Poo

          Sorry Gina, but I don’t think Kyle needs Kathy’s approval. Kathy sat back and let Kyle carry the burden of Kim for years, including helping her both financially and assisting in raising her children When Kyle said that to Kim, she did not deny it. My opinion of Kathy is based on the behavior of the 4 children she has raised.

          • GinaXOXO

            How do you know that Poo?

    • Bad Barbie

      I would have sent Kim to hell long time ago.

    • Brattus Rattus

      Hey… I heard from the doctor yesterday. I needed a letter for my medical retirement. With my latest tumor, in regards to my 1-2 year life expectancy…he told me my new prognosis is less than six months. Girl, I’m so…numb. I don’t know how to tell my family and friends so I’m warming my nerves up by telling you (and if anyone else reads it) here.

      • twifan2

        DANG! That’s rough news to hear, Brattus! 🙁
        I’m really sorry to hear that.
        try writing down what you want to say to them. That could help some.
        Again, I’m really sad to hear that! ❤

        • Brattus Rattus

          It was hard to read it in the letter. So I tried to go out last night because I hadn’t been out in a month of Sundays and the walls were closing in on me. Well, I know all of the staff at the bar. They asked how I was and what’s going on. I started to cry. I don’t cry. Awesome. Told them the deal, slammed my martini and went home where I cried, took a couple Xanax, calmed down and went to bed.
          The Doctor hadn’t told me about the change from 1-2 years to less than 6 months. I read it in the letter. That’s how I found out. I attached it without my name of course. Can you imagine reading that?

          • twifan2

            WTH? He/she told you in a letter?!
            You need to call your dr & ask wth is going on. That doesn’t sound right! On many levels!

          • Brattus Rattus

            I have an appointment coming up. I knew it was going to be bad with that new tumor so it doesn’t surprise me. I can now submit my package and medically retire though so I’m happy about that. I just don’t have the energy to “anything” right now.

          • Mimi Mayes

            So sorry. God bless you.

          • Brattus Rattus

            Thank you. 😉

          • Guardian

            Oh Brattus, who would? I’ve been offline for over 12 hours (storms again) and just read this. I know we are strangers but regardless, I am so sorry that you are facing this. I have my guesses as to how/why this occurred, but all I will say is to try and hang on until your appointment. And, if indeed this is the way it is, let him/her know what a shocking blow it was and is. You may be a patient, but you are a person first and are entitled to consideration at the very least. My concern is that you have support because this is about you and others need to be strong for you. Please keep us posted as the days unfold.

          • Brattus Rattus

            I’ve pulled it together. I’m ok now. I’m glad you made it thru the storms ok. That’s awesome!

            If you’re thinking it was to push or ensure my retirement, read what I wrote to “Ilivehereandlikeit”.
            Thank you for taking the time out to think of me. The family is coming up to see me today…. *sigh*

          • Guardian

            I kind of figured it was twofold – to ensure your retirement and because you have an upcoming appt. Still, I have worked in this field and I don’t always care for how people are not what I consider “considerately” informed. Anyway, I think you must be a pretty amazing person and certainly a tough cookie because this is as tough as it gets. I am thinking of you and yours.

          • Brattus Rattus

            Thank you. I think it’s the huge new tumors but I digress. Regardless, Dude could have called me. Meh. It’s done. The vodka-a-ton last night made me feel better today. LOL
            I just posted something over about your cookbook.

          • Guardian

            Darn right – should have called. Always wonder how these pro’s would like it if they and those they care about were handled in this manner. Do know when some of them do face it, they have feet of clay. I just posted about the cookbook. Such a surprise!

          • Ilivehereandlikeit

            Brattus, I’m so sorry to hear all you’re going through. This must have just devastated you. I know we don’t know each other but I am sending cyber hugs your way.

            I’m just wondering if possibly your doctor wrote the above letter in the manner it was written so as to assure you got absolutely no guff when it came to being granted a medical retirement? Like worse case scenario so no one questions that you are tired, facing physical challenges, that kind of thing…

            That occurred to me as sometimes people just do not understand. I know from first hand experience here dealing with my husband’s cancers, his situation is minimized by family, friends, acquaintances fairly often. Of course they’re not there with him for all the constant testing, doc app’ts, the tons of meds, when he’s not feeling good/is in hospital, etc! So they see what they want to see? I suppose that ignorance could also be present with employers too. So if the letter is strongly worded by your doc, perhaps he/ she was just being proactive and trying to make *sure* you did get what is rightfully yours.

            That’s what I’m hoping!

            I also hope no matter what conversation you have with your family about this letter, you feel loved and supported. Again, just want to say how sorry I am you have to go through this…

          • Brattus Rattus

            Good morning. I thought of that scenario but one-two years left would have been sufficient (the reality). What I think is that it is the truth. He recently found a huge new tumor. That factored into this decision. I believe he was going to tell me at my next appointment but I needed the letter now. Also, if it was just to ensure my retirement, I would hope he would have told me instead of devastating me.
            Now that I have gotten a grip, One way or another, it’s going to happen sooner or later. When I see him in a couple weeks, I’ll talk to him about it. The outcome of that conversation isn’t going to change the outcome of my survival. It will either be less than six months or longer. I’ve accepted it.
            Thank you for all of your kind words. I appreciate it. 😉

          • Ilivehereandlikeit

            Thanks for explaining further and I agree completely, very insensitive on the part of the doctor that wrote this. I hope I didn’t come across as making excuses, I was just trying to think of some possible reason it was written to include info that hadn’t been disclosed to you. But you are so right, not acceptable, no matter what reason he might have had. It’s your body and your medical history, of which you should have full and updated information FIRST.

  • MidwestMiddie

    Kyle (Chanel) lost fans last season because she was a lying bitch to Lisa V..
    Now, she has “restored her show friendship” with Lisa V. and is a victim of
    Kim and Brandi. Is all of this a ploy so Kyle will get back her fan standing?
    Hmmm – IMO, yes.
    After all, all of this sisterly discord has been played out on Bravo throughout other seasons. The Richard Sisters are boring. Will they voluntarily retire from Bravo
    to work on solutions to their family troubles? What and lose their story lines? LOL!!!!

    • Guardian

      They both want the attention IMO and will not leave the show – they are choosing the fame over family – want their cake and want to eat it too. Watching the intricacies of addiction is never entertaining and can take years – if ever – to be resolved. That we are watching it play out between two sisters with little progress has become stale. As stale as BG’s continual antics. IMO the three of them don’t add much other than the same-o and it’s all rather tedious/boring.

      • Bad Barbie

        The ones that really need this show are Kim and Brandi. They are not wealthy by any means and this is the only real source of income they have at this point. It was reported that Kim has like only a million and a half left.

        • Guardian

          I agree. I could handle Kyle but as a trio, it’s just too much. It was hard to even enjoy or get to know the new people because it seems everything keeps getting pulled back into their drama.

        • Guardian

          This show “launched” Brandi and brought Kim out of moth balls. Indeed, they need the show and unfortunately seems like Bravo thinks the show needs them.

    • Ilivehereandlikeit

      Exactly, just like toddlers, any attention is good attention. They are leaving a sea of victims in their wake however…these story-lines are not without impact on the people around them. Children, family, friends, co-workers, the viewers.

      They need to grow up, and that goes for BG too.

      Kim could recover from her addictions and Kyle could recover from her codependency issues. With commitment, dedication and hard work. That will never happen as long as they continue to appear on this show.

      I like to be inspired, enlightened…so far I’ve learned how to back stab, call people names, throw little tantrums, make nice people cry then pretend cry back when called out for it. Well I now *know* how to do all kinds of snarky, mean-spirited things thank to these sad people….not that I’m ever gonna act that way!!

      • Guardian

        All I wanted was to be entertained. IMO the entire franchise has morphed and warped into a competition between the groups with messes that seem to go nowhere and are carried over for seasons on end. I have missed so many first runs this year and others I have just lost interest in. What I do find “interesting” is how much these people are willing to expose themselves at the cost of others. This price of fame would be way too high for me and I wouldn’t do that to those I love and care about, let alone strangers.

        • Ilivehereandlikeit

          Same here Guardian. I would be gone girl the minute the screeching and finger pointing started. No amount of money or notoriety is worth that to me.

          One thing that really bugged me was a few weeks back I caught a rebroadcast of the Amsterdam trip (on the canal with “the slap.”) After it was over, my DH asked me something and I about bit his head off! Wow, that made me feel so bad, why in the heck am I letting those miscreants invade my house with their poison?

          It really bothered me as I was fine before, like “yeah, I’m going to watch this and see what the BH idiots are up to! Fun!” And then next thing I know I’m acting just as nasty as they are – whoa!

  • Guardian

    Yes Kyle, it is your family – airing its business on a reality TV show. With that fame and attention comes the downsides. If you want privacy with regard to certain aspects of what we see, kindness, you might think about one or both of you getting off the show. Surely it occurred to you that this would be exposed and there would be consequences? Anyway, Brandi is really not the problem. She is merely an ugly dressing on the wound that is your sister. Kim is not in recovery and will never be until her acknowledgement of it does not include the words “yes, BUT.” When a user has a caveat they have yet to take responsibility and they are still using or at great risk of relapse. You must step away from her as you are only enabling. Constantly engaging, reacting, coddling, is what she wants but not what she needs. She doesn’t have to be responsible because you are making it so easy for her not to be. Never been a big fan of yours but if fans are what you want, fix yourself, get help and let your sister find her way back to her family. The family must quit coming to her. And forget about BG.

    • Ilivehereandlikeit

      That is written beautifully Guardian.

      “Brandi is really not the problem. She is merely an ugly dressing on the wound that is your sister.” Perfectly expressed.

      I agree, this is a very sad matter that is being exploited by the sisters – no one is pointing a gun at their heads forcing them to be on the show. Each season they have an opportunity to opt out and get on with the hard work of healing their broken lives. Somehow it’s always someone elses fault, their misery and unhappiness. That’s why personally for me, neither my interest nor my sympathy is there any more for either sister.

  • karen

    ITs always Brandi fault. These ladies can’t own anything they do. Kyle tried to screw Kim by asking her to stay at poker night when clearly there was something wrong with her. Kyle wanted to air Kim problems on TV. Brandi wanted to help her leave, why didn’t Kyle taker Kim home instead, because she could careless about Kim. Brandi not jealous of Kyle & Lisa cause there friendship is fake. Lisa will drop Kyle in hot minute when Kyle no use for Lisa. That’s Lisa moto us throw friends out when no longer useful to her. Has no idea what friendship is about.

    • Brattus Rattus

      They just tried to get her to eat something. You know, to soak up some of whatever she was on. They weren’t trying to keep her there other than food….. They even said take some to go then.

      • Bad Barbie

        They are required to film certain segments. In reality, it is not up to Kyle to stop production from filming because yet again her sister is high. Kim has been hanging by a thread all these years showing up hrs late, not showing up at all. She is lucky to have a job and that may be because of Kyle too. So blame Kyle for Kim having work, something she hasn’t done in 30yrs.

        • Brattus Rattus

          *psst* Was that for me? I think you meant for that to go to Karen?

          • Bad Barbie

            Just general replying

    • TartLemon

      Kyle didn’t want to take Kim home because the cameras were not at home. Kyle always wants to be where the cameras are. I’m no Kyle fan.

    • RubyT

      Kyle wanted Kim to stay to eat something to help sober her up. She didn’t want her leaving with a drunken Brandi, who refused to even let Kyle speak to Kim…which she had no right to do. Brandi just doesn’t know her place.

      • GinaXOXO

        Ruby, if Kyle was so concerned about Kim why didn’t she hop in the limo with Kim and go to a drive through and then home. Eileen doesn’t have the only pizza in BH. A rational person would not want their sister exposed publically and would get them away from public eyes. Kim was willing to leave. Kyle wanted camera time.

        • RubyT

          brandi wouldn’t let kyle near kim…did you not see the “push”?

          • GinaXOXO

            Do you mean the push when Brandi had her hands full and Kyle pushed her twice? Yeah, I saw that.

          • Guest

            no, i mean this one.

          • RubyT

            it’s ok. even brandi has a few twisted followers.

          • GinaXOXO

            This push and grab? The one that happened first?

          • GinaXOXO

            Brandi was leaving. All Kyle had to do was let her.

    • GinaXOXO

      Absolutely! Kyle is just a wolf in LisaVP’s pack to lead against Brandi. They are not friends and Brandi knows it. The only reason Brandi comments on it is because Brandi cannot tolerate hyprocisy.

  • MidwestMiddie

    Remember Kyle planning the Ladies Afternoon at the Spa and then
    the Wine Tasting?
    Kyle was really thinking about her sister, Kim, then, right?
    (eye roll)

    • MorningYawn

      I believe that was producer induced. Kyle was visibly upset.

      • MidwestMiddie

        Kyle said that the hotel was going to set up the day but she
        never asked what they would be doing? Huh?
        This sounds like something Chanel might do …… meaning
        very little! I don’t know a single person who would ever allow
        a venue/hotel set up a day’s activities without knowing in advance
        what was being planned.

        • MorningYawn

          That’s why I think the producers handled it. They coordinated dates, told them what they wanted to do and producers handle details.

          • MidwestMiddie

            The producers may have set this up but in her blog Kyle
            states the hotel did the planning.

      • Bad Barbie

        So every other event through out the season an attack towards Kim’s sobriety??? All these events have alcohol involved. Why is Kim on this show is she is battling addiction?

    • Guardian

      Kyle claimed that she didn’t know there would be a wine tasting if I remember correctly. Regardless, Kim was into her claimed sobriety by what, two and a half years? Liquor is obviously a factor in their circles and it is up to the addict to be responsible and either sit and sip something non-alcoholic or remove themselves from the situation. You can be considerate of this but cannot and should not protect them from the exposure or it deflects from the responsible choices the user must make in order to progress and continues their sobriety.

      • MidwestMiddie

        I agree with you about being considerate of others while not protecting them in these situations, except – why include an event where the person can’t
        participate at all? That’s just mean.

        • Bad Barbie

          So please delight us and tell us why is Kim on this show? When all the events required by production to be attended there is liquor involved. o Kyle is the mean one because she is “family”? Doesn’t seem like Kim GAF about her family when she needs to put on a show.

          • MidwestMiddie

            I have no idea why the Richard Sisters are on this show.
            Same goes for Brandi.

          • Bad Barbie

            Kim def for money. Brandi def for money. Kyle for promo for her store, money and exposure she is def the least broke out of those 3.

        • Guardian

          I don’t know if Kyle really knew or not. Or, as was stated by Jenny, that it was suppose to be a pairing with food. The bottom line though is that Kim is an addict and if she runs with people who drink and attends events she is going to encounter it and will have to make choices. It sounds harsh and I’m not trying to excuse Kyle if this was all part of her plan. But, Kim is the one with the problem and she must face it however it comes. She will be put to the test for the rest of her life.

          • Bad Barbie

            Was this the only event with alcohol involved? No.

          • MidwestMiddie

            Kyle wrote in her Bravo blog that she knew about the Spa but didn’t know what the hotel had planned for the rest of the day.

          • Norrth

            I agree with you. From what Kyle has said, they were taught to cover for Kim and not make an issue of her drinking. I thought it was telling that Kim through Kathy out there, claiming Kathy would never “betray her”. Kim was attacking people and their families. LisaR was only telling the ladies about her life, and the sister she lost and Kim, IMO, took the opportunity to make it about her and then turned it into an attack on poor LisaR. That woman was so vulnerable talking about her sister’s death and Kim couldn’t have cared less about LR’s pain.

          • Guardian

            Supporting an addict is a thankless job – it’s exhausting, can go on for a very long time, and destroys so much. Kim, whether by nature or nurturing, is extremely selfish, self-centered and certainly immature. She shows so many of the classic behaviors of a substance abuser. What we are seeing is what happens when it is swept under the carpet because it will never stay there no matter how hard you try.

        • Poo

          It was a spa day and Kim was perfectly able to participate in that.

          • MidwestMiddie

            Yes and then what? Should Kim have been sent to the Parking
            Garage to wait for the others attending the Wine Tasting?
            IMO, Kyle failed as a Hostess by allowing the hotel to
            arrange activities without informing her what the agenda would include.
            Kyle has admitted her mistake in this matter.

    • Bad Barbie

      Is what a;ll you took from this season? The hate for Kyle is real. LOL

      • MidwestMiddie

        I think Kyle spent this season trying to win back the fans she lost last year.

        • Bad Barbie

          And she succeeded because we can see what a real abusive POS Kim is when she doesn’t get her ways with someone. Took Kyle way too long to realize who her sister really is. She’s been drunk and fun for so many years that the real her (sober) is a nasty bish.

          • Norrth

            I have nothing but sympathy for Kyle. I believe her when she said that she didn’t know there was a wine tasting (or just the wine, I can’t remember). She’s never gaslighted Kim before – that I can remember.

    • Jennymckitty

      I believe it was supposed to be a pairing.. Food paired with different wines where it wouldn’t have been awkward.

      • MidwestMiddie

        I don’t think food was served with the wines. Discussing food pairing with
        the wines being tasted is usually only talk. The hosts offer food tips to their
        guests in the hopes of helping them sell some of the tasted wines.
        Also, Kyle admits to being uncomfortable with Kim being at this event.
        Apparently Kyle didn’t know the hotel had planned the Wine Tasting
        but she should have known.

        • Jennymckitty

          I think they said that they were under the impression that food was going to be served. I think one of them wrote in their blog that they were hungry because they were expecting food and missed lunch.

          • MidwestMiddie

            Strange —– difficult to understand a hotel hosting a group of
            women for much of the day and not include a meal ……plus a snack!
            : )

      • RustyToddler

        I wouldn’t be surprised if that event was set up solely by production. Can’t you see them licking their chops in hopes of an altercation captured on film?

        • Jennymckitty

          I think production probably arranges a lot of the events in all the franchises and then credits one HW as the person arranging it. They probably find locations that will provide services either free or for a big discount for being featured on the show. Melbourne and Atlanta both going to Malila? It isn’t an obvious choice as a tourist destination.

          • RustyToddler

            Excellent observation. If in doubt, follow the money (or lack of it).

  • MorningYawn

    Her closing statement is so spot on. There are no winners. It is so sad.

  • Bad Barbie

    Brandi is working her nasty to keep her spot on the show, yet there is nothing ‘BH’ about her. She doesn’t have money, class, status or even a life partner. She doesn’t even have a storyline! Girl, bye!

    I feel for Kyle. She has a better heart than I do. I would have kicked Kim to the curb long time ago. That is foul that Kim is using Brooke against Kyle. You can see when Kim gets busted flipping the story about Poker Night, she right away runs to another excuse and issue to manipulate the situation. This is probably how she’s gone by her whole life and not it is catching up to her. I can see the mother being the one at fault here. She probably idolized Kim because of her income and she did no wrong in her eyes. Kim grew up in an alternate reality.

    • Guardian

      She may have grown up but she has never matured.

  • Norrth

    I wonder if Kyle questioned Kim’s sobriety at the wedding. What else would make Kim so angry?

    • RoundAbout ❾

      I don’t think she did anything. I think BG is trying Kim’s trick of tossing something out there about Harry to see if it would stick against Lisa R. BG is hoping that if she can create some excitement, then her chances of getting to be on Season 6 are a lot better.

      • TartLemon

        I think if BG really had nothing, Kyle (and everyone else) would have forced the issue. IMO, something DID happen. Kyle was too quiet at the reunion letting LVP do most of her talking. Last year when everyone was jumping all over LVP, Kyle was right in the middle of it.

        There’s something Kyle doesn’t want out there about herself.

        • RubyT

          I don’t think Kyle is hiding anything about herself. I think she’s still protecting Kim. I think there are many more unspoken secrets between the Richards sisters. And Brandi will never be a part of them.

        • RoundAbout ❾

          This is a new item that Brandi chose to bring up and make public long after the reunion. The first wedding was partially shown this season and it was family only so BG was not there to see first hand what, if anything , anyone did while there. All she has to go on is whatever Kim may have told her and as Kim has proved repeatedly this season, her memory is very sketchy at its absolute best. I still see it as a ploy to try to remain relevant to the show by creating unnecessary drama.

        • bellaboo

          I think kyle is so mentally exhausted because she has been dealing with all of kims frap for so many years, & has let it go in order to keep her sanity. You can clearly see just how LITTLE kim thinks of kyle & her family. She is so hypecritical when it comes to kyle, & brandi. She has sit there through 2 hrs contradicting statements about brandy, then in the
          same breath the exact opposite towards kyle.
          kim sits there with so much hatred in her eyes towards kyle, it is so sad to think kyle has been there for kim & her family so much & its as if she loves being mean just so she can hurt kyle.
          Next week it will be crazy, & i wonder if kim is going to make EMPTY THREATS like shrshe threatened lisa r about harry

          • dj j

            I agree with you. Kim has shown her true colors, and they aren’t pretty. If she was practicing sobriety, she wouldn’t have that much venom and meanness towards others. She got off easy calling Eileen a “beast”, and ugly face and hair. Eileen did nothing to her! I think Kim is desperate to stay on the show, and will do whatever Brandi tells her to do. But for Brandi to try and turn her against her own sister, that is wrong.

        • Jennymckitty

          Did they bring it up at the reunion? I didn’t hear it but there was so much talking over each other that I could have easily missed it. Brandi’s blog was the first I heard of it. That’s why I thought no one had addressed it….they hadn’t heard of it til the blogs were put online.

        • Poo

          I really don’t think so. Kyles husband has become an international player, I think he told her to be circumspect on national TV. He has a big reputation to protect now, especially doing business in conservative countries. Just a thought.

          • RustyToddler

            It just may be possible that between the finale and the reunion, Kyle sought professional help. At least I hope so.

    • bellaboo

      THAT IS A GOOD ONE, & IS PROBABLY TRUE. Thats probably why kim lost control, & blew up with the rage she posesses. She is so RUDE, SAYS HURTFUL things just to be MEAN. She gets off when kyle gets upset. The look in her eyes is pure EVIL. We all know KARMA is always right around the corner, and is ready to strike. Kims child that went to psych hosp is kims KARMA

      • MidwestMiddie

        Whoa ……. totally disagree with your comment that Kim’s Karma is
        her child being hospitalized. What an awful thought!!!

        • misstc

          Karma is a strange thing as I’ve been studying it to some extant. Yes, sometimes a child/loved one is used to punish the parent/sibling. But bear in mind, the soul of these martyrs CHOOSE to play victim before birth. Tis is all to teach important lessons so the soul can evolve. Sounds crazy, but Nature is a strict accountant and balances her books very well.

    • MorningYawn

      Very interesting idea, Norrth!

  • TartLemon

    What other storyline does Kyle have since the show began besides Kim’s (lack of) sobriety?

    • MidwestMiddie

      None worth watching………
      Perhaps Bravo considers Kyle’s “White Party” to be the yearly and elite
      social event of Beverly Hills High Society.
      LOL

      • Ilivehereandlikeit

        OMG, that just reminded me for some reason of that horrendous waxing scene several seasons back – she was going on a bicycle trip think? Yes, Kyle you DO have compelling story lines there girlfriend!! Beverly Hills High Society indeed – lol.

    • GinaXOXO

      Nobody cares about Kyle. This season she threw her wealth out there, no one cared. Then she threw out spoiled child Portia, no one cared. So, Kyle resorted to her standard storyline about Kim’s sobriety.

      • Ilivehereandlikeit

        Yep, when Kyle comes on I usually see if my dogs need to go out for a potty break.

    • Ilivehereandlikeit

      I’m just not interested in anything with Kyle, I don’t care about her homes, her family, her parties, nada. (Including but not limited to her predictable spontaneous splits demo each season…snore.) Mean girls, even mean girl with meaner substance-abuse addled sisters never hold my interest; they are a dime a dozen.

      KIm and Brandi, them too, for different reasons.

      What does interest me are people like LVP who come across as having some semblance of a moral compass when it comes to treating people with a modicum of respect. I do shudder when I watch, on occasion Vanderpump Rules, and Lisa appears in the midst of that train wreck. But on those occasions she’s never mean that I can tell, more off color and sometimes a **teeny* bit of a pot stirrer…but it’s her restaurant and apparently her show, c’est la vie!

      I’ve like Eileen and Lisa R for much of the same reason I like LVP overall, they don’t play as mean-spirited. Mostly confused it seems by the antics of their co-workers on RHWBH’s??? Can’t say I blame them either for that reaction 🙂

  • Pony Mama

    Through the seasons of RHOBH I have always found Kyle really annoying and boring, but I feel serious sympathy for what she has dealt with through all the years with her sister’s addictions. To have what 5 children, all of whom will need to go to college, and then have a second household to support while your husband builds his career, that is a heavy load! I mean now Mauricio and Kyle are probably set for life since he’s struck out on his own and become one of the 3 top performing realtors in the country, but it took 20-25 years to get to that point. I never thought I would be defending Kyle, but really she has been put through the wringer.

    • GinaXOXO

      Who, besides kyle, has ever collaborated Kyle supports Kim financially?

      • RustyToddler

        Do you mean corroborated?

      • equinox2009

        I think both Kyle and Kathy have been keeping Kim afloat, not just Kyle Kim hasn’t worked in years and she gets alimony from one of her husband’s and probably child support for the youngest who last year started college. Her lifestyle must be more than she pulls in from husbands. I do believe both sisters have helped her-financially and emotionally Kim appears entitled and ungrateful! My thoughts, just saying!

  • GinaXOXO

    Ok, this drama started Poker night. Kyle and Brandi came to Poker night together and they were friendly. Brandi saw that Kim was in trouble and was trying to get her out of the party and off camera. Kyle tried to keep Kim in front of the cameras. Brandi resorted to telling Kyle she is never a supportive sister to Kim. That ended the truce between Brandi and Kyke. Suddenly Kyle’s singular focus was to break up the friendship between Kim and Brandi. A friendship she didn’t have a problem with prior to Poker night. Could the real motive be Kyle has a case of sour grapes?

    All of that aside, Kyle is determined to protect Kim from getting hurt by Brandi by . . . Hurting her? How can anyone believe Kyle’s motive is to protect her sister?

    • donna

      But before all that happened Kyle was in the bathroom & Kim came in there crying to Kyle. Then all of a sudden Kim came out the bathroom & turned against Kyle just like that. Kyle was trying to see what was wrong. That’s when Brandi stepped in Kim was telling Brandi she wanted to leave. But what Brandi didn’t see a few minutes earlier was Kim in the bathroom crying to Kyle!

  • Pony Mama

    God forbid my sister were ever going through addiction, treatment, relapse, etc; the last companion I would ever want them to have would be a current alcoholic and pill popper.

    • TartLemon

      Kim is responsible for her own CHOICES.

      • MidwestMiddie

        True……… but I still wouldn’t “want” to see any of my sisters chose
        a companion with these problems.

  • Kate Kack

    It is RIDICULOUS to blame Brandi for their problems which have obviously been going on for decades.
