She starts off explaining that she wasn’t mad at her co-stars for bolting from the hotel, just at their choice of communication. “It was promised to be a fun filled weekend and yes, I was a little disappointed when I arrived to be greeted with a scribbled note that they had left. Kyle notably commented that I would like to be in the house too, maybe so, but life is invariably dependent on the decisions you make in the moment and I knew for me to leave would be insulting to all who had hosted us. I wasn’t mad at them, but it would’ve been more considerate to have waited until I arrived, methinks!”
First, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star gushes over her love for QVC and all things cardigan! “I am so forever grateful for this experience to design a line of comfy, cozy, California chic clothing for women of all sizes. I just love every second of the process, and to work alongside such amazing designers as Isaac Mizrahi and Dennis Basso, who along with Joan Rivers, have been my mentors in so many ways is just beyond. I am constantly learning and growing as a business woman and clothing designer. I’m honored to now be going into my 5th year with QVC and I feel so very blessed! I also love the three different pieces — the shearling jacket, the cozy cardigan and the striped cardigan I’m wearing in this week’s episode!”
Yolanda shared the photo above on Instagram. “I am not afraid for you to see me for who I really am and what my days are really like. I have learned to love every part of me without apology… happy selfie – sad selfie, good days – bad days, with make up – no make up, boobs – no boobs,” she added. “I can only hope that by sharing this not so glamorous journey the millions of doubted and neglected Lyme sufferers will gain medical recognition of their illness and the appropriate treatment affordable for all. This is not a pity party, just reality with good intend. #InvisableDisease #ExplantSurgery #NotAVictemButAWarrior”
In her blog, Yolanda wrote, “I hope you all had a wonderful welcome to the New Year. I gladly said goodbye to 2015, officially the most challenging year of my life. I feel inspired and excited about a fresh start – 366 new days and 366 new chances for a full recovery and a life filled with love, health, and happiness!”
About Rick Hilton‘s claim that Kyle quit RHOBH, Kyle said she hasn’t talked to anyone, including Rick, about her plans. “The truth is, until the show is officially picked up, no decisions have been made.”
That said, Kyle admitted she didn’t want the drama surrounding Nicky Hilton‘s wedding aired, “It’s a hard show, putting your life out there. Obviously, there are things you don’t want out there. You don’t pick and choose. I think it came about because stuff came up about my nieces and the wedding. I really did not want those things in the show, but we signed up for this, and it is a reality show. There is no script, so what can we do? It is our life.”
Eileen Davidson managed to dodge most of the drama (what little there was) on this week’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. But she still breaks the episode down in her blog, commenting on everything fromLisa Rinna’s QVC hustle to Lisa Vanderpump’s reaction to she and Kyle Richardsleaving their hotel in the Hamptons. As for the not-quite-sober ghost of Kim Richards haunting their Hamptons trip, Eileen supports Kyle’s wish to save her own skin stay mum on the mess, but does admit “the topic keeps getting dragged out” no matter how much Kyle wishes it away.
Eileen calls herself out on letting hubby Vince see her dress’s price tag while packing for the Hamptons. “Having Vincent help me pack clothes with the price tags on? AMATEUR move! Lisa R. texted me when she saw this episode, ‘What were you thinking? You have to cut those suckers off!’ I’ve now learned: Always destroy the evidence. I won’t make the same mistake again.”
When asked if she’s enjoying being a real housewife, Erika shares, “I’ve had a great time.” Andy asks how her lawyer husband, Tom Girardi, feels about the show. “He’s so supportive,” gushes Erika. “I really have nothing negative to say. Everything is okay.” Andy quips, “Well, you’re only four weeks into it.”
The girls are packing, which means a secret and exalted Bravo ritual known as CLOSET TOURS!
First and foremost – unfortunately – we are in the mumu factory. Tucked deep in a corner of Beverly Hill is a tiny, cluttered, neon-covered, eye-searingly printed lair known as Kyle Richards‘ dressing room. Ironically one of the closet rods actually collapses under the kaftan weight and refuses to be put right. Girl – that’s a sign! Even Porsha, aged 7, refused to help Kyle put the bar back up – she shot mama a knowing side-eye that said, “Things happen for a reason.” MmmmHmmmm…
The highlights – OK, lowlights, are below. And no, we’re not bullying Brandi by PULLING direct quotes from her so don’t try it. It’s not our fault her truth cannons sometimes self-detonate!
First of all Nik is so freaking cheesy. He sucks up to Brandi hardcore and she takes the bait. Then they rehash every. single. dramatic moment of Brandi’s life, but I do like Nik’s voice and he asks insightful questions.
