I. Love. Brandi Glanville. If Brandi doesn’t return next season, can Bravo please hire her to conduct these reunions, because girl is not afraid to bring it. Last night’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion was explosive, dishy, and far superior to any reunion I’ve ever seen. I’m giving credit where credit is due, so thank you, Brandi, and thank you also, Camille!
Things start out with Andy recapping Brandi‘s intro into the exclusive social club known as high school students masquerading as adult women. Forty going on fourteen! Brandi dispels rumors that she’s a slut, but wishes she was because sex is fun. Camille confirms Brandi is just joking about her sexual proclivities. The KyTayAdrienne sofa is practically hyperventilating over talk of Brandi’s swimsuits and outlandish jokes. They are, like, the most square sofa in reunion history!
Kyle admits that her behavior towards Brandi was ridiculous and insecure, stating she was afraid of Brandi’s entry into the group because Brandi is hot. Andy demonstrates just how ridiculous and immature Kyle was by bringing up the infamous Game Night. I don’t know about you, but I’ve never looked at Taboo! the same way since!

Last week’s brutal segment of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion left several of the ladies reeling – particularly Lisa Vanderpump, who found herself to be under attack from supposed friend, Adrienne Maloof. After rumors claimed Adrienne had planned on conspiring against Lisa, the ladies spent the better part of the last week pretending that couldn’t be further from the truth.
Taking to her Bravo blog, Lisa claims she is still emotional over her experience at the reunion. Poor Lisa describes the experience as traumatic, stating she is “still at a loss for words,” after watching it again. “It certainly looked the way it felt and I have no words to describe it,” Lisa says.
Lisa is calling the other ladies out for their horrific high school behavior! “We have seen the tea party, seen game night, and I understand that is how these women roll,” she snips. “But it’s not OK to accuse somebody viciously or to sit there silently as you watch a friend who is under attack for hours. That speaks volumes, and I for one don’t want any part of it.” I wonder how Kyle Richards is going to explain her actions on that one!
“I am not going to say anymore,” Lisa writes. “It is what it is, and I will bounce back,” adding that she may have put too much faith in certain people. Lisa admits, “I would question my own judgment.” Ouch!
Adrienne is also speaking out about the reunion and she admits she may have crossed the line, but reminds us she is only human. “Over the last two years, you have seen me in some great moments and in some tough ones. The one thing that has always worked for me is to be straight up,” Adrienne explains in her Bravo blog. “It’s not always an easy choice to just lay things on the line, especially when you’re telling someone you care about that you feel hurt or vulnerable because of their actions.”
“Please remember you only see a fractional portion of our lives and our relationships. There were moments occurring behind the scenes as well that were causing hurt feelings amongst all of the ladies.”
Adrienne explains that she believed the issues between the ladies were not “irrevocable” so she decided confronting them head on would be the best way to find a resolution. Perhaps that’s where the planned attack rumor came from… “I felt that clearing the air was worth it, for all of us. This is an amazing group of women who are far better off enjoying each other’s company than fighting.”
“This was something that I considered to be a minor bump in the road, and I expected we’d move on from all of this once we talked about it,” Adrienne writes. “Ultimately, those who know me also know that resolution was always my goal.”
“What I have taken from all of this is that maybe my approach was too direct in this situation, and in the future there will be times when a softer approach is a better idea,” she admits.
And Adrienne is adamant that she cares about Lisa and hopes to move forward. “I value my friendship with Lisa, and I’m looking forward to moving on in a positive direction with all of my fellow ‘Wives — who I truly think are brilliant, talented, and beautiful.” I”m happy Adrienne so readily admitted she was wrong. Good for her.
Moving right along to media queen Kyle, who scarcely goes a day without talking to the press. Kyle appeared on Geraldo at Large last week with friend Faye Resnick where Geraldo asked her all about her experiences on RHOBH – including her opinion on Russell Armstrong‘s suicide.
Kyle again reiterated that the show is “not scripted” and admits she has misgivings and regrets associated with her decision to appear on reality TV.
Geraldo wondered if the ladies knew how bad Taylor Armstrong‘s marriage was, to which Kyle answered, “Yes.” Kyle explained the ladies pretended not to know and tried to ignore it in front of the cameras fearing how Russell would react if he was aware that Taylor was confiding in her friends about the abuse. Faye explains that Taylor told the ladies “over and over again” about the abuse and even admitted it in the bathroom of a restaurant!
Geraldo also asked if Kyle held Bravo responsible for Russell’s suicide. Kyle believes Russell’s financial issues are the reason he took his life. “No, you know, he was in such deep financial distress,” Kyle said. “Everybody was coming after him, he really got himself into a situation where he couldn’t hide anymore.”
“He owed a lot of money and he was really having a hard time staying afloat,” Kyle added. “Somebody who is abusive, obviously, has issues as it is to begin with.” Faye claims Taylor is still emotionally distraught and feels the loss of Russell “deeply.”
Finally, tonight marks the second episode of the three-part reunion and Brandi Glanville will go head-to-head with Taylor. Brandi speaking for most of America takes issue with some of Taylor’s behaviors throughout the season and following Russell’s suicide. She also readily admits that she told Lisa the other women talk about her, which leaves Adrienne speechless! A clip is below!
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion Part Two airs tonight on Bravo at 9/10c.
THOUGHTS ON LISA’S REACTION TO THE REUNION? DO YOU BELIEVE ADRIENNE CONSIDERS LISA A FRIEND? WHAT DO YOU THINK OF KYLE AND FAYE’S INTERVIEW?
CLICK THE CONTINUE READING BUTTON FOR A PREVIEW OF TONIGHT’S EPISODE!
First, Russell’s sister Laurie also spoke to the Today Show, stating Russell always denied ever abusing Taylor. Laurie then stated she wanted to know why Taylor is releasing her tell-all memoir… now that Russell is no longer here to defend himself.
The Today Show co-host Savannah Guthrie posed that question to Taylor who responded: “I don’t feel that his sister has much knowledge of what went on in our relationship. The last time I saw her, we had just taken her out of rehab for Meth. And she had been a Meth addict for about five years, and we were married for about six. So I’m not really sure that she had her finger on the pulse of what was going on.”
When asked if she ever considered not making the gruesome abuse details public, Taylor said: “I absolutely thought of that. You know, what should I do, what to write? What not? But those really raw moments are what’s going to allow me to make a conversation that could end up hopefully helping somebody else out there. I got out way too late and I’m hoping by others hearing my story, they might decide to get out sooner.”
Taylor continued: “You know I went as far as taking a polygraph test just to try and prove to him that I never had an affair on him. But he just had this constant paranoia. And as they were unstrapping me from the polygraph test, I thought why am I taking a polygraph for someone I love? But I was so desperate to keep it together that I would have gone to any extreme.”
When asked about her lowest point in the marriage, Taylor alleged it was when Russell “knocked my jaw out of the socket.” She added: “I would say whenever I was on my knees over a toilet with my jaw not in the place that it was supposed to be, there was saliva running out of my mouth and I was thinking to myself, ‘How am I not going to call an ambulance. How am I going to protect him? I don’t want him to go to jail. What do I do if I can’t get my jaw back in place?’ Just being over a toilet and feeling like the only thing I could think of was forget my jaw, I just want to protect him.”
Taylor once again stated she did the RHOBH reality show because she thought the cameras would protect her from the abuse. When asked if Russell was against her doing the show, Taylor said: “No no, he loved it. He loved being in the media. He would wake up everyday and go to his Blackberry. The first thing he would do is look at his Google Alerts with his name in it. He really loved seeing his name in the news. That’s just kind of the person he was.”
Taylor also insists that she still loves Russell despite it all. “I love him to this day and I miss him terribly.”
Taylor’s new book — “Hiding From Reality: My Story of Love, Loss & Finding the Courage Within” — is scheduled to be released tomorrow.
Meanwhile Russell’s lawyer Ronald Richards sent out this interesting tweet last week: “The only way Taylor Armstrong can prove Russell A. battered her is by releasing her medical records that coincide with her plastic surgery.”
Ronald also tweeted this today: “It is not a coincidence that Taylor never filed a FALSE police report / decl. in her divorce she was a victim of DV. It is a crime to do so.” The video of Taylor’s interview is below.

According to a report by Radar Online, the person behind the twitter handle @Hardboiledpeggs, is a teenage girl from New Jersey. Even more disturbing, Taylor has a book signing scheduled for February 7 in NJ. Security has now been increased in light of the threats.
On Jan. 29, @Hardboiledpeggs tweeted: “See u on February 7 ill be there with a book and a rope so i can kidnap u,” to which Taylor responded by saying: “Don’t ever contact me again.” @Hardboiledpeggs went on to make more alarming threats against Taylor’s daughter Kennedy.
“This was taken very, very seriously. The death threats Taylor and her daughter received are from a teenage girl that lives in New Jersey. The teenager appears to suffer from mental health issues,” a law enforcement source tells Radar. “Taylor is extremely grateful to the FBI for identifying the culprit.”
The source adds, “It was disturbing for Taylor to find out that the girl lives in New Jersey, because of the specific threat she got in regards to her book signing in the Garden state on February 7.” Taylor’s tell all memoir Hiding from Reality: My Story of Love, Loss, and Finding the Courage Withingoes on sale Feb. 7.
And speaking of Taylor’s memoir, her sister-in-law a.k.a Russell Armstrong’syounger sister is once again speaking out against her, calling her a lying gold-digger over her tell all memoir!
Talking to the HollywoodLife blog today, Laurie Kelsoeisn’t buying Taylor’s claims that she is releasing the tell all, six months after Russell’s passing, to help inspire other abused women. Laurie believes Taylor’s motivation is all about money.
“Taylor never reached out to my family about writing a book. She’s a gold digger; that’s why she wrote the book,” says Laurie. “I don’t think Taylor took into consideration what [effect] a book like this would have on Russell’s children! Her decision to write this book was purely motivated by money, but she is pretending that it’s about helping other women. What about helping her own family?!”
Laurie adds that she is more upset over the damage being done to Russell’s reputation as he is no longer here to defend himself. “It’s the utmost disrespect…my mom is heartbroken. It’s such a disgrace and embarrassment,”says Laurie. “Even if what Taylor wrote is true, why does she have to come out with a book about my brother now, so soon?”
Moving on to Lisa Vanderpump, who’s spinoff show unfortunately is a no go. According to Radar Online, Bravo has decided to pass on Lisa’s show.
The proposed spinoff, which Lisa filmed a pilot for, was reportedly centered around the ins and outs of one of her restaurants. The show would have followed the chaos surrounding the restaurant, including both the lives of Lisa and her staff.
“Lisa was hoping to follow in the footsteps of New York housewife Bethenny Frankel who had her own successful spin-offs focusing on her wedding and new baby but the network decided not to pick up her show,” a source close to Bravo revealed. With Lisa’s spinoff out of the equation, a return for a RHOBH third season is all but certain!

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON A TEENAGE GIRL MAKING THE TAYLOR DEATH THREATS? THOUGHTS ON LAURIE’S COMMENTS ABOUT TAYLOR? DISAPPOINTED LISA’S SHOW WAS NOT PICKED UP?
Isn’t it fun when middle-aged ladies squabble like 8th grade girls on the playground? I remember those lovely days of junior high when you had no friends, only frienemies, because entertainment consisted of gossiping, bickering, and starting petty fights. Yes, I remember those days like it was yesterday… and sadly I get to relive them through the unnerving antics of the ladies of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
It’s really not their faults; they’re bored, they’re rich, and they’re paid to act a fool, but something tells me SOME of these ladies would act like the eigth grade bully no matter how old they are. Maybe they just didn’t get their fill of it forty years ago. Yes, Kyle Richards and Adrienne Maloof; I’m talking about you!
It all started when a little bird known as Brandi Glanville insisted that Adrienne had gotten the girls of RHOBH together to develop a strategy for taking down the queen bee, one Lisa Vanderpump, at the reunion. They decided on a premeditated attack which included accusing Lisa selling stories to RadarOnline. Brandi claims she and Camille Grammer refused to participate in said behavior, and Brandi witnessed Lisa crying backstage at the reunion because of Kyle and Adrienne’s behavior!
Now whether you’re a Lisa fan or not, it’s pretty obvious that she steers this ship that is known as Housewives and it’s pretty obvious that some people want her job. I blame Andy Cohen‘s obsession with Giggy for Lisa’s rise to power. Anyone who watched Part One of the reunion knows Adrienne went ahead full-force, with Kyle jumping in right behind her, as the two jabbed at Lisa over the most inane of nonsense.
After Kyle learned what people thought of her behavior, she did what she does best – backpedal! Kyle insists no way, no how there was a pre-planned gang up on Lisa! Speaking to LynnNChicago, Kyle insists people have very vivid imaginations.
“I don’t usually respond to rumors but I had to address what Brandi said re planned attack on Lisa. That is 100% NOT TRUE!!,” Kyle declares. And she accuses Brandi of making the whole thing up! “Lisa is my friend and I care about her. We have had our moments like any friends. I have to wonder why Brandi would make that up.”
“On my children’s life, that never happened!,” Kyle asserts. “We would never do that to Lisa, can you imagine how hurt she would be? She’s my friend.” Kyle claims there was no discussion between the ladies prior to the reunion and no plan was put into place to take down Lisa. She calls what viewers perceived as an attack on Lisa as influenced by gossip.
“If you’re looking for it, then that is what you will see.” Kyle said. “When that’s what you have heard in advance, then you’re looking for it to happen.”
“You’re asked in-depth questions and you’re expected to answer,” Kyle explains. “I’m always honest, that is one thing you should know about me, I have always been truthful and I am an honest person.”
Trying to distance herself from the accusations that she was involved in any sort orchestrated front, Kyle calls Adrienne’s complaints about Lisa “petty.”
After learning that Kyle was denying her involvement, Brandi took to Twitter to again to reaffirm that a meeting was planned. “I never spoke to @KyleRichards18 I was asked to meet by Adrienne I didn’t go. Adriennes biz partner said they were going after Lisa! Simple!”
Moving right along, Kim Richards is out of rehab and doing great. And she is eager to return to work! Unfortunately Kim’s family and friends are desperately trying to persuade her to leave reality TV behind – even if it means they have to financially support her! Hey, Rick Hilton has enough money.
“The show has proved to be nothing but humiliating for her,” a source close to the family tells RadarOnline. “She hoped it would be a platform to resurrect her career but that has just not been the case, she comes off as an unstable train wreck.”
The source confirms what rumors have been speculating for months, that Bravo demanded Kim check into treatment or risk getting fired, because they “wanted to make sure nothing bad happens to anyone on their shows.” The source claims this was a response toRussell Armstrong‘s suicide and they were worried about Kim’s potential outcome after a season full of incredibly disconcerting behaviors.
And following her troubling behaviors, Kim is not reaping any of the benefits of starring in a popular reality show! “Kim was hoping it would be a good business move to be on the show, but has not received any lucrative offers like the other women,” the source adds.
Now that Kim’s life is back on track her family does not think she should concentrate on a reality show. “They don’t think it is a good idea, her personality is too fragile.”
“Even though it is her only source of income it just isn’t something they want her to do. Her family is willing to keep supporting financially no matter what,” the source alleges. DoesMauricio know about this plan?
And during the reunion where Kim talked openly about her addiction issues in a taped interview segment, sources say Kyle had a complete meltdown. Apparently the other Housewives believe Kim may not be interested in returning after seeing how she was portrayed this season. “They don’t know if Kim would come back for another season, they think she just might not,” the source says.
Finally, RadarOnline is reporting today that the FBI has identified the person making death threats to Taylor Armstrong via twitter. If you recall, Taylor received some very disturbing threats after a Twitter user threatened to both kidnap her and harm her daughter Kennedy.
However, a source tells Radar the culprit has been identified, adding that the public will be shocked at their identity. “The FBI has identified a suspect that made the threats, they know who it is. The suspect doesn’t live in California, and the public will be shocked to learn who it is. Taylor and Kennedy are safe and secure,” a source close to the situation states.
Interesting. Radar adds that a formal announcement about the suspect as well as what Taylor’s next step will be is expected later today or Friday.

WHO DO YOU BELIEVE: KYLE OR BRANDI? DO YOU THINK KIM WILL RETURN FOR ANOTHER SEASON? SHOULD SHE? THOUGHTS ON THE FBI IDENTIFYING THE PERSON MAKING DEATH THREATS?
Anyone who thought Real Housewives of Beverly Hillswould go quietly, was wrong! The reality show is filled to the brim with drama on and off the screen and the fallout from the Part One of the epic reunion has been massive; with the stars fighting acrylic nail and extension to clear their good-ish names!
In response to the hotly contested footage of this season’s story, Taylor Armstrong has found herself maligned by fans and accused of exactly what Cedric infers below. While I do not believe Taylor goaded Russell into taking his own life, I do believe there is doubt to many of her claims and I do think she has handled his death irresponsibly and with little regard to his children – including the daughter they shared.
It is apparent that many fans feel similarly and some have taken it to a whole new level. Following the reunion Taylor was the recipient of several death threats through Twitter from a follower known as Hardboiledpeggs.
“See u on February 7 ill be there with a book and a rope so i can kidnap u,” @Hardboiledpeggs wrote. Taylor responded with,”Don’t ever contact me again.” The user persisted, this time involving Taylor’s daughter, Kennedy! “Turn around bright eyes every now and then, Kennedy’s dead,” the clearly deranged user threatened. A screenshot of the Tweets is below. They are truly disgusting!
The Twitter user @hardboiledpeggs has since been deleted. No one was harmed and so far the threats have been baseless, however Taylor is rightfully taking this very seriously and contacted the authorities.
“Taylor absolutely freaked out when she read the death threats. These were credible serious threats against Taylor and her daughter, Kennedy. The Tweets that were sent to Taylor have been turned over to the FBI,” a law enforcement source reports to RadarOnline. “Taylor is assisting the FBI with the investigation, and she wants the person responsible for the the threats prosecuted.”
“Taylor will be consulting with security professionals and assess what changes she needs to increase,” the source adds. “Her first concern when she got the threats was Kennedy, but her daughter is safe, and that is all that matters to Taylor. She will do whatever is necessary to protect herself and Kennedy.”
Increased security will also be present at Taylor’s February 7th book signing in NJ to ensure the safety of both herself and other fans.
Moving on as discussing the tumultuous first part of the reunion is RHOBH’s most notorious hanger-on, the sometimes nefarious, often unbelievable Cedric Martinez. He really needs to move on already, doesn’t he? Cedric is giving his two-cents about what happened and claiming his version of the truth. My advice – take it with a grain of salt, but some of it rings true!
Releasing a statement to Reality Tea through his publicist, Cedric admits his famewhoring predilections and he isn’t ashamed! “YES, I am a fame whore,” Cedric exclaims “But there is a huge difference between someone like me, pursuing opportunities on reality TV (and exposing the lies and viciousness of reality stars) versus people like Lisa [Vanderpump] and Taylor [Armstrong], who exploit opportunities on reality TV by lying about, and misrepresenting themselves and others.”
And with that, here we go! Speaking about the behind the scenes feud between former friends and neighbors Lisa and Adrienne Maloof, Cedric claims there was some veracity to Adrienne’s accusations. “The truth about Lisa’s lies and smear campaigns is right there in front of your eyes. Lisa lurks in the shadows, like a snake on her belly. But with a little effort, you can help me expose the truth…,” Cedric says, lambasting his former friend.
Cedric accuses Lisa of having a relationship with the ‘bloids and exploiting said relationship to garner favorable press. I hate to burst his bubble but almost all celebrities do this to a degree – even A-Listers! “Lisa is technically right when she says she doesn’t SELL stories to the tabloids. She doesn’t. But the truth is not on Lisa’s side… Lisa TRADES stories (on celebrities and the other housewives) for favorable press for herself and her restaurants; and sometimes for negative press about her enemies. I’ve seen her do it hundreds of times. And I have proof.”
Gleefully defending newbie Brandi Glanville, Cedric supports her campaign to expose the nefarious dealings of some of her co-stars, all in an effort to get herself on the show, of course! “You gotta give the girl credit… the other housewives want Brandi off the show, now. But she’s hanging on for dear life by exposing the truth and rattling the other housewives cages. Oh how I wish the lies the producers told about our ‘long-term friendship’ were true.”
“Brandi is a breath of fresh air and, remember, she was the first person to call out Kim [Richards]‘s obvious drug abuse and alcoholism. And she didn’t buy Taylor’s “innocent victim” act for one minute. I’m rooting for Brandi but I’m predicting Lisa and Kyle will use their unbridled power over the weak producers to kick her off the show just like they did to me!” Considering Lisa and Brandi have struck up some sort of a friendship, we’ll have to wait and see!
Cedric’s most shocking and intriguing accusations concern Bravo’s role in Russell Armstrong‘s suicide. “Last night’s RHOBH Reunion episode was very sad. Not because Lisa was getting crushed under the weight of her own lies. That was hilarious! No, it was sad because Bravo, the producers, Taylor, Lisa and Kyle [Richards] once again used the power of a hit TV show to trash the memory of a dead man,” Cedric asserts.
And while Cedric admits that Russell was clearly no saint, he insinuates that both Bravo and Taylor played a role in Russell’s decision and besmirching his memory! Ceddy’s got some cojones! You can read the remainder of his statement below. In order to get the truth out there, Cedric also evokes fans to convince Andy Cohen to book him as a guest on Watch What Happens Live. Somehow I doubt that will happen…
Finally, it was the slander accusation heard round the world, ok, well round the blogosphere as Adrienne accused Lisa of selling stories to RadarOnline, citing a “source” told her. RadarOnline is speaking out in defense of Lisa and denying there is any truth the rumor. They are also defending Adrienne and Camille Grammer, explaining that they really were told that by a source! Luckily it seems the ladies have patched this “misunderstanding” up!
“Don’t blame Adrienne for accusing Lisa, she was told wrong info by person not from Radar,” RadarOnline.com’s Executive Vice President, David Perel, said via Twitter. Adding, “I don’t blame Adrienne at all! Totally not her fault. She was given wrong info.”
Following the shout out in their support, both Lisa and Adrienne thanked Mr. Perel. “Thank you for your support, I know what @TheRealCamilleG and I were told. Moving fwd in a positive direction! xoA” Adrienne Tweeted.
As for the mysterious source who seems to believe Madame Vanderfabulous accepted a whopping $25k in exchange for information (what on earth would be worth that much dough, I wonder?), Radar assures fans they are investigating! “Dealing with it behind the scenes,” Mr. Perel wrote.

I have to admit, I both love and hate reunions. I love them because of the unexpectedness and I hate them because Andy overly screens the questions and nothing much gets resolved or answered.
Last night’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion begins with Andy questioning Kyle about Kim entering rehab, Kyle demurs (for once) that Andy should talk to Kim about it. Which I think was a tactful and appropriate answer. Lisa and Adrienne speak for the group, describing that they all knew something was amiss and Adrienne thinks it took a lot of courage for Kim to seek help.
Adrienne’s parachute or whatever the hell she has on her arm is distracting – more distracting than her totally Tiffany hair. Adrienne always looks like my Barbie collection circa 1991.

Viewers will see Adrienne Maloof (whose chef Bernie recently went for Lisa’s jugular in a Facebook rant) “attack” her former neighbor in a high-dollar, be-Botoxed form of turf wars! “Adrienne has it out for Lisa,” an insider reveals to OK!. “Adrienne just wants to be number one,” and she is allegedly willing to do anything to oust LVP from her position atop the RHOBH throne!
“Adrienne called all the girls together, they planned to go after her,” the source explains, adding that Adrienne’s jealousy is the reason for her malice. “Adrienne is going to open a restaurant, just like Lisa. She also got a little dog like Lisa and named it Jackpot and opened a twitter account for the dog, just like Lisa.”
So what is prompting Adrienne’s venomous attitude towards her former friend? I mean, this can’t all be because of a Maloof Hoof comment and a Bachelorette Party not held at The Palms! Perhaps next season’s storyline! “So far Lisa, Kyle [Richards] and Adrienne have all been renewed by Bravo,” the insider revealed to OK!.
Lisa has hinted at the animosity from Adrienne in a recent appearance on WWHL and admitted she was glad to have new neighbors! In a recent sit-down with NBCUniversal Direct, Lisa discussed her feelings on the reunion. “I find it really difficult. It’s quite hard when you go through a show and you’re kind of in your own world, which I was very much, I was having fun and working really hard… But, when you see things aired and you see things being said, it’s kind of upsetting. So, I felt I was in defense mode for a lot of it.”
Kyle, who apparently spent the reunion throwing her former friend under the bus, also cops to having trouble dealing with the aftermath. “It’s really like mental torture sitting there with all the women,” Kyle described.
“We’ve put our arguments to rest a few months ago and then, all of a sudden, to rehash everything is very painful. If you’re very honest, and people are highly sensitive, it leads to an argument again.” And that, my friends, is why you don’t go on a reality show with your friends! If there is one thing that guarantees a friendship to fall apart it’s participating in a show that requires you to talk crap about your friends to the viewing public.
Also on the reunion, Kim Richards will be making a cameo via an interview with Andy Cohen to give some insight into what led her to enter rehab. During the sit-down, Kim informs fans that she is an “alcoholic.” Per the usual, discussing her sister’s situation is Kyle, who shares some feelings behind Kim’s decision to get help. “It wasn’t about the Housewives,” Kyle tells Good Morning America. “I think it was just an accumulation of things.”
“It was our family and sitting down, and she really felt it was time,” Kyle explains. “I have to give her credit for making that decision on her own.” Kyle is relieved that Kim was able to admit to fans and to Bravo about her addictions by declaring she is an alcoholic. “I’m proud to hear her say that,” Kyle said. “I’m proud of her. I know that’s the biggest step in recovery, to admit that.”
And Kim’s family is very happy she sought help. “We were always proud when one of us achieved something so, right now, for Kathy, Kim and me, we’re all just very happy and proud of her,” Kyle relayed.
“There were things going on that the audience wasn’t aware of,” Kyle said of the excoriating arguments viewers have witnessed between the sisters. “I had had a lot of pain and built up anger and frustration towards her, and obviously she did towards me too. It was a vicious cycle.”
To help Kim continue with her path to recovery, Kyle advised her sister against watching footage from this season. “I told her [Kim], ‘I don’t know if you want to watch the show all the time,’ because I don’t want her to look back and beat herself up. I really want her just to stay positive and move forward.”
“It was very difficult to have people dissect and analyze your relationship thinking they know you from a TV show when it’s been a long time in the making,” Kyle confesses, but the sisters are working towards a more positive relationship.
“I don’t think you can love anyone like a sister or fight with anyone like a sister,” Kyle added. “My sisters – Kathy [Hilton], Kim and myself – we’re all very close.”
Also, refuting rumors that she is definitely on board for a third season of the tumultuous show, Kyle again claims she “absolutely” regrets signing on and isn’t sure if she wants to return. Kim is also allegedly uncertain if she wants to come back — or if Bravo even wants her! Perhaps with Kyle’s life-based sitcom in the works she doesn’t need reality TV to chronicle her every move!
Finally, tonight marks the first part of the epic reunion which will cover suicide, domestic abuse and the other run of the mill Housewives problems, including bitchery, backstabbing as well as she-said/she-said nonsense. A preview clip is below!
