From what the viewers were shown last night, Kathryn Edwards didn’t say a tenth of what she initially wanted to say to Faye Resnick when finally given the chance. Instead, she took to her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills blog to share her feelings. She also touched on that awkward age conversation with Lisa Vanderpump.
Kathryn says she was fine with LVP’s questions, “I wasn’t offended by Vanderpump’s asking me my age, I’m very proud to say how old I am. Why wouldn’t I be? And I am also very proud to have married my husband, regardless of our age difference. It’s never mattered to me. Age is a number…I can be curious about age differences, too, but that’s all it is. I want to understand couples and what makes them work. Maybe Vanderpump wanted to know what it was like to be with such a young, hot stud, haha…kidding Ken. I found Vanderpump’s questions engaging and funny, but I am sure others might not see it that way. I guess that those are things I would also ask and then be surprised I offended someone. And that’s all I have to say about that.”
Kathryn then gets to the Faye confrontation (or lack thereof), “OK…so lets cut to the chase…here it is…this is what you really want to know. My reaction to Faye was this: If she would have been more reticent with her feelings, I would have spoken differently to her, but from the moment we sat down at the table, Faye’s body language, much like Rinna’s description, was desperately trying not to engage with me. I saw her drinking shots before we sat down, and she was sheepish from the start. She had an ignominious posture, and I knew she didn’t want to go there. I thought about it…my wheels were turning, and I was playing it out in my head on fast forward.”
She continues, “As I said in this episode, I didn’t go there looking for a fight, but if she wanted one, she was sure going to get it. Faye has a sordid past. I read her Wikipedia page (she should pay someone to clean that up), and she doesn’t look like the face of truth and virtue. It would have been easy to touch on a few things to knock her down to size, but I am a lady, and engaging at Kyle’s with such an intense subject would have ruined the dinner party–I mean the BBQ. Faye’s blanket apology to the table was general, but she doesn’t know me to say more than that. All I wanted to see and hear was that she was sorry for what she had done, not just to me but to Nicole’s memory. Desperate people do desperate things.”
And for Erika Girardi, Kathryn says that Faye’s decision to work with a writer from a tabloid is telling. “Erika, I don’t read the Enquirer, do you? When Faye decided to share her story, she chose to pen the book with Mike Walker, a writer from the Enquirer. It was described as a “highly sensational, instant book” written by a self-proclaimed serious substance abuser. Faye spoke of the nights of partying and shared her intimacy with her “best friend.” Excerpts of the book were on the cover of the Enquirer weekly, it was in quotes. I read what Faye had to say about me, I couldn’t miss it at the grocery store checkout line…that was good enough. I’ll pass on that page turner. If Faye thinks that is the way to honor her best friend, who needs enemies? And in true Enquirer form, what she said regarding me is a lie. Couldn’t I have just been abducted by martians instead?”
Then she came to the other names she so desperately did not want to reveal. Finally, Nicole admitted her affair with Marcus Allen. She quickly told OJ that she’d only let him “play” with her. She didn’t admit to actual intercourse. OJ exploded. He turned on her like a man possessed. Nicole told me OJ threatened her, saying “If you’re ever with Marcus again, I’ll…I don’t know what I’ll do, but it will be bad. I won’t be able to control myself.” He wouldn’t let it end. It held up the reconciliation attempt for months. At times we were worried that OJ might take revenge on Marcus by telling his fiancée Kathryn about the affair with Nicole. That would have been a disaster, because Kathryn was a sweet woman who was well aware of Marcus’ womanizing and might have felt she had to call off the wedding. OJ did not do that, but he did confront Marcus. No one knows exactly what was said, but it ended up with him swearing to OJ that he would never touch Nicole again. Marcus said it wouldn’t be a problem anymore, because he was getting married.
And then later in the book she mentions Kathryn again for a short minute:
“Kris, I don’t know what to think about this. I know Marcus Allen has been trying to get my phone number, and Nicole wants me to go out with him to the Monkey Bar. I like Marcus but not in that way. On the other hand, I’d like to keep him as a friend, because he is a friend of Nicole’s. What do you think?” Kris said, “Whatever you do, don’t go out with Marcus Allen. He’s the biggest womanizer in the world and don’t forget he’s engaged to Kathryn. She turns a blind eye to his fooling around, but it hurts her when he does it publicly.”
