“It is a Great Example of Hypocrisy”
Last week, LVP posted her blog to her FB account then she tweeted the link to her FB as did the ever loyal Ken. It took a little while, but it was then finally posted on the Bravo site. Not sure why, but I thought it was interesting and thought ya’ll would want to know. Moving on.
LVP apologizes profusely for neglecting her blog recently. Then she takes it back. Cause she never apologizes. She wants us to understand Telephone-Gate. Can we please just talk about your closet?
In the weeks that we filmed prior to the munchausen exposé, arrangements were made between all of us; LR’s birthday dinner, the trip across the country to buy the little pony, I didn’t want to go alone and it was decided LR should come too, it was going to be a surprise for Ken and took quite a bit of organizing, the plane schedule, how we would execute our ridiculous plan,what we would wear, giggling over cowboy hats etc… it was an interesting expedition, which certainly created much excited chatter between us, Ken’s birthday planning where LR and I went shopping for hats, a scene that never aired, Ken’s actual birthday party, and I am sure other events and filming days…so of course there would be the odd phone call over those six weeks or so….Is LR alleging it was ten conspiratorial conversations regarding YF? Absolute hogwash….. I have 250 or so people that work for me, I organized endless events for this season, many events in the restaurants, worked tirelessly for Yulin, oh and filmed two reality shows consecutively, I have almost a farm at home, so I don’t have the energy or time to focus on nonsense.
Unless Rinna recorded those calls (Reality TV 101) her accusation makes no sense.
Anyway we speak occasionally…Not like Kyle and I, we would speak every few days. So LR went to Yolanda of her own volition, as if to purge herself of her guilt, she called Yolanda the greatest manipulator of all, she also proudly announced that she was responsible for igniting conversations or something to that effect, on Jenny McCarthy’s radio show.
I still find it so odd that she went to Yolanda to confess, yet spent the rest of season still questioning Yolanda and calling her a manipulator? Who confesses to something you’re not really sorry about? #sorrynotsorry
But when LR felt, after the Lyme gala where Kyle expressed her sympathy for Yolanda, that possibly the tide might turn against her, she wanted to extricate herself from the debacle she had created, she had to pass the blame.
Ahhhh now this makes sense. She saw the outpouring of sympathy for Yolanda at the Gala and realized her accusations were gonna make her look very much bad.
Fueled by ED’s dislike for me, a clandestine little plot was hatched. If you recall at the dinner when Andrea Bocelli sang, LR replied “I love LV and don’t find her manipulative at all” That would not have been said if she had been pressured repeatedly to ignite the Munchausen conversation, but for ED that wouldn’t suffice and slowly ED managed to pervade her opinion….Persuade her otherwise.
Eileen was definitely less than pleased when Rinna said this little statement. Now, since we know how easily Rinna is “directed” we can easily accept that Eileen began working behind the scenes to make sure Rinna began feeling the same way she did.
Let us cast our minds back to the innocuous conversation where I inadvertently used the terminology “Affair”..she never reacted at the time, not even a hint, we went to lunch the next day, no mention, we also had dinner together at Bethany’s not a word…Until that last day when she blindsided me and stated how hurt she was, I was mystified, I knew I had no intention of hurting her.
Eileen is one of those people that stews. She sits on something and then confronts long past the appropriate time of normal “confrontation” and then wants her apology. I think LVP thought this particular conversation between her and Eileen was barely memorable. Now, no one can forget. I grow tired.
It also baffles me where LR is so relentless towards Kim, it has to be extraordinarily difficult to deal with addiction in the public eye, additionally to spend every day with somebody close,who has a terminal illness is a pressure that should evoke sympathy.
The whole Kim situation makes no sense. You had an uncomfy car ride with her over a year ago and got in a fight in Amsterdam (which you were partially to blame for!) and you knew she was suffering from an addiction. Forgive and move on. She didn’t stab you with a spork!
For Kim to endure a barrage of negativity and abuse, constantly hurled at her by somebody, who clearly has some sort of rage and regret syndrome must be challenging….LR also stated that Kyle was an enabler on the beach, it was edited out …. An enabler? Where and on what planet does LR form her opinions? Also the frustrations and physicality that has spewed from LR, her decisions and conversations in regard to Yolanda, oh that is all just fine with ED but never mention the word “Affair” Oh Lordy that is unacceptable…
She is so very wrong for passing judgement on Kyle at all. Lisa was a little girl when her sister suffered from and succumbed to her addiction. Kyle has been dealing with Kim’s issues for all of her adult years. There is a BIG difference there.
I bid you all a good week, and remember my mantra love and laughter supersedes all…Lisa. Namaste.
And this right here is all I needed to read. I believe she is talking to me. She is probably on a plane right now headed into Cleveland. I will pick her up from the airport in my Ford Flex (I will put a Bentley emblem on it so she will feel comfy) and we will head to my 2400 square foot home. Today is my twins’ birthday and I am sure she will bring them fabulous gifts remembering to wrap everything for my daughter in pink. Perhaps she will bring a pony. I don’t want to be pushy or anything. I would take the pony with the bum leg. We will stay up late drinking the 2 bottles of LVP Pink Sangria I have in my fridge (I really do have them in my fridge right this very moment) and we will watch Bravo and she will tell me all the dirty back stories of her castmates. I SO hope she brings Giggy.
“Thank you from the bottom of my heart”
I must admit that when Kim says she is hard to love, I get a little choked up. It is very hard to see someone fight addiction over and over. I so hope she wins the battle. It’s strange that when Kim was a full-time castmember, she rarely wrote a blog and here she is, a “friend” and now she writes her blogs promptly after appearing. Perhaps this means she is healthier OR this means she needs a paycheck. If you have been reading about Kim recently, you prob know she is in deep doo-doo. Seems as though after her public intoxication charge last year, she was ordered to attend a certain number of AA meetings AND do community service. Kim didn’t complete court ordered crap and now there is a warrant out for her.
By now I’m sure you’ve heard the news that I am going to be a grandma. My daughter Brooke and son-in-law Thayer are expecting a little boy! I can’t wait for this exciting new chapter in our lives. I am thrilled and excited to be Grandma. I know Monty is up there watching over all of us. He is now our true guardian angel!
Let’s hope the new grandbaby only knows the sober side of Kim.
Also, this last year with my sister Kyle was a difficult time, and I missed her a lot. It was a rough one, but I am grateful to be where I am today. I want to thank you for all the love and support. The words of encouragement from all of you and the fellow sisters out there were so helpful. Of course Kyle and I had to be ready in our time and do the work ourselves. But it was encouraging to hear about other sisters in our corner. So many thanks to all of you.
Anyone who judges Kyle for the way this situation has turned out has no business doing so unless they have walked a mile in her shoes (damn, I bet those are nice shoes!). Kim has a disease. Kyle has a sister who she loves.
I have to be honest and say that I didn’t get to see the whole season. I was really focusing on myself, my family and taking care of my best friend. But from what I did see, things seemed to only get worse with Lisa Rinna, and I and wasn’t even there to engage with her. I always seemed to be a constant topic of conversation for her and Eileen. I’m a little baffled as to how after almost two years of some sort of a personal attack on me that her response was, “I was actually shocked oops…,” “That was wrong, and I’m sorry,” ” I wish you well,” “That’s what I’ve got for you,” and “I’m human.” I didn’t feel like I got a proper or sincere apology. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. So accepting an apology and moving forward is what I’m all about–if it is genuine. But I did not feel Lisa or Eileen were genuine. I feel bad about that. But I mostly feel bad for them. Living their lives constantly through other people’s worlds can’t be fun. Certainly there is no real happiness always storing and harboring negative energies.
I’m quite glad she didn’t watch the season. Rinna spewed a lot of cruel statements about Kim. She seems to lack any empathy. Also, seems as though Eileen and Rinna don’t know how to give a proper and genuine apology. Must be contagious in BH.
“Every other issue pales in comparison”
The first few episodes with Kathryn were not so good, but I think she found her footing and I hope she will be invited back next season.
Watching the part of the reunion with Kim and Kyle had me crying again all over again. I have so many feelings with regard to this topic, as you all can see. It’s difficult to watch anyone you love and care about fight addiction. Seeing Kyle and Kim struggle through the feelings and try to put it back together made me very emotional, because I know how important that is.
Watching their relationship is probably the most REAL thing we see on RHBH. This happens in families every day. Addiction is cruel and hurts the addict and everyone who loves them.
I could never turn my back on someone while they are fighting the fight.
I understand that some people have to walk away for their own survival, but I would hope that those of us that are healthy and well have empathy for those in the struggle.
Couldn’t agree more.
“That’s when I knew it was game on”
What, Kim? I’m overdramatic???!!!
Yes, Eileen, you are!
Okay, I’m sure I am sometimes. But, as I recall it was Kim who exhibited extremely dramatic behavior at my house, during the car ride with Lisa R., and when she called me a beast at that oh-so-un-dramatic dinner in Amsterdam. And after that, I only saw Kim once this whole year, at Kyle’s party in the desert, where our interaction was brief and uneventful. I’m at a loss as to why she’s formed this opinion…but all right. Regardless, I do wish Kim well in her recovery.
Kim has an excuse for her behavior last season AND has apologized for it. Does Eileen want Kim to open up a vein for her? Eileen has a hard time accepting apologies. Perhaps she needs more therapy.
I have realized there is nothing that Lisa Vanderpump won’t do to another Housewife, no low that she won’t reach as she schemes behind the scenes. I was already aware of Lisa V. pushing the Munchausen “storyline” before the dinner in the Hamptons. And as you remember, when the “M” word was brought up at her house, Lisa V. didn’t want anyone to discuss it with me. I think because she knew I wasn’t going to go there or help her “storyline.” Knowing this, going into the Hamptons dinner, I already didn’t trust her.
Snooze. I grow tired. Eileen then decides to rehash the “affair” conversation in the Hamptons.
Kyle saying that Lisa V. didn’t mean it maliciously is a joke, especially considering the way Lisa V. has been malicious to Kyle for years. The tabloid that Brandi said Lisa V. “suggested” she pack in her bag in Puerto Rico saying Mauricio was cheating on Kyle comes to mind. Just recently, Lisa V. tried to throw Kyle under the bus about Yolanda, and has never admitted it! Kyle even said she knows Lisa V. threw her under the bus, but she’s okay with it. Just because Kyle is okay with Lisa V. being malicious, doesn’t mean we all are. And again, I get why Kyle doesn’t want to suffer the wrath of Lisa V. and her followers anymore after what she’s been through with her in the past.
I bet Eileen keeps a journal of all the wrongs she believes has been done to her. I feel bad for Vinny. I hope he has a GF on the side. I hope she speaks no English, too.
