The Reunion Part 2! Uggh!
The second part of this reunion mostly revolves around Kim's sobriety and her behavior in Paris. I was a little mean to Kim about the pillow talk in Paris. But I just couldn't sit there and let Yolanda be attacked by Kim knowing that Yolanda (out of all of us) carried her bag her pillow through the airport and doted on her completely. I definitely used the wrong word when I said it seems like Kyle isn't supportive of Kim's sobriety. When I said "fail," what I meant was that in every episode Kyle is rolling her eyes, saying she isn't sure if Kim is sober or she isn't acting sober. I don't think that saying that on national television is helpful to Kim in any way, and Kim clearly agrees.
The men join the reunion and Paul has a video message for all of us. He says that I didn't ruin his family. I honestly never felt responsible for that.
Brandi, I hope this season Kyle and Kim are not as hateful as last season. The thing that bothers me the most is that they never ever do any kind of self evaluation and live in their childhood reality of blaming everyone else for their misconduct. Cannot wait to see it tonite.
The trouble with you Brandi is that you have zero credibility!!! Your first season saw you fighting with Kyle and Kim, your second season saw you fighting with Adrienne, so I guess it makes sense that this season would be Lisa! Watch out Yolanda - your turn next season! I haven't made up my mind yet as to what's sadder; that you call Lisa manipulative which means you have such low self esteem you allow yourself to be someone's puppet or that you don't have a bone of loyalty in your body. Funny too how your the only one out their telling anyone who will listen about your friendship falling out!
Brandi, you've always been one of my favorites because of your loyalty. In fact, I clearly remember you saying on the reunion that you don't talk behind your friend's back. Plain and simple. Didn't you?!?? Throughout this entire past season, Ken and Lisa had your back. Ken went over and beyond protecting you because you didn't have a partner. He even turned on Mauricio at the dinner to protect you. Then, Ken once again argued on your behalf to Adrienne and Paul at the final party. I hope it's not true that you turned on Lisa and Ken. You should be thanking them every single day for what they did for you. If you're not, then you lost me as a fan. Don't you realize your endearing quality was your friendship with Lisa?
Please get rid of Brandi. She is trashy and not rich and does not exemplify the BH Lifestyle. She says really trashy things and her storyline is not interesting. Brandi, no matter what happened with Lisa, you are such a snake to have turned on her like this. I am starting to feel sorry for Adrienne now after all of this time. Maybe she was more of a victim of your supposed friendship than we realized?
I'm over you!! The only reason I liked you was cause I thought you had loyalty!! Oh yeah you might want to chill on the botox! you speak like you just had major dental work done! and your lips and face are numb!! do you dribble when you drink out of a glass?!
I recently saw you on a Talk Show and was stunned that you trashed Lisa. She and Ken were the only ones who supported and defended you. You have a short memory--what a snake you are. You had me fooled.
I'm almost giddy for this season to start. It seems like my prediction has come to past. I wrote on Adrienne's blog last season that you will turn on Lisa and that Lisa's fans who were egging you on to reveal Adrienne's personal stuff and called it being real better support you when you do it to Lisa. For Lisa's sake I hope she didn't tell you too much but you've reveal Lisa is the puppet master and is not as innocent as she acts. I can't wait!
You are the worst. I knew you would turn on Lisa some day. I hope Bravo fires you. You are trouble and a liability. Your only redeeming characteristic on the show was your friendship with Lisa. Viewers love Lisa and won't forgive this. Say bye bye...
I don't think I will ever really like you, but if you and Lisa fall out and start revealing each others dirty deals and secrets, it might make an interesting show. Good drama. You will probably learn how bad it can be to cross Lisa and turn her dark, conniving side against you. Looking forward to the entertainment. Just try to refrain from using the "F" bomb every other word. It makes you look trashy.
Well, Brandi I think this year you will be the #1 most hated. What exactly do you do? Do you have a job, a sugar daddy, call girl ? I am just not sure how you are close to being as talented as the other Housewives. You are someone that should have been put in the dumpster with last year's garbage.
You are a true romantic! I love your ideas! I.e.:
"My dream evening is watching the sunset from Ivy on the shore, having the corn chow and fish and chips, then going for a long walk on beach."
Brandi you have really fun creative ideas and I hope you use them in your own show. Maybe a show in which you are someone's Romantic Life "Fairy Godmother" and grant their romance wishes. Create a date for a cute couple and be the hostess who interviews them about the date and their behavior. A classy or more elegant version of the typical drunken dating show, it would be all about creating the date and giving tips on behavior for ladies and gentlemen and dress/style tips. Your books are the inspirational "How To" on getting back on your feet and living with the crisis life throws at you. It would be wonderful to see play out real life on a show.
If you turn on Lisa this upcoming season... I will forever hate you. You dont seem to hold onto any long term friends, you turn on them as soon as you feel like it. I'm not sure I like you anymore. Lisa is the BEST!!!!
Brandi I actually love you and how true you are although I think if you could wean off the *F* word you would be even more fabulous.
Wow, I've never been a big fan, but honestly, the pics of your drunken night out this week are shocking. Here's to hoping this is addressed on the show since you guys are currently filming. I would love to hear what my two favorite, classy ladies - Yolanda and Lisa - have to say about it.
Woo hoo I hope it's true you are getting you're own show or a special every so often. I love the idea of you befriending someone after a break up and helping kick start their motivation to get back into life or the dating world or the single mommy world or whatever. This is such a powerful idea: women helping women.
I hope you run with that idea that you embody in your own life of "Girlfriend Power." The idea that women can do anything they put their minds to after a bad thing happens in their life (i.e. divorce, death of a loved one, loss of a job, etc.) It would be fun to see you talk with or do lunch with other Relationship Survivors like: Ivana Trump, Dayanara Torres and get their wisdom. There is a new book called "Wild" by Cheryl Stayed about how she hiked the Appalachian Trail alone after her divorce, it's cool and very powerful, she'd be a great interview also.
Keep going Brandi, you are a leader!
YOU are my favorite woman on this show! I love how real you are, your strength, authenticity, and you are beautiful!!! Don't worry about the haters on this page! Obviously they cannot see it! Or, they are jealous. Yes, you can have a trashy mouth lol, but atleast you are not fake, backstabbing etc. I love you, Lisa and Yolanda, atleast with you three you can be trusted, not like the rest of them. Kim is definetely coming a long way but be cautious! Camille is a good girl too, and trustworthy, but have not seen too much of her this season. I posted a long blog on Kyle's page re: the reunion and feel it would be a good lesson for allot of the women on here to just stay away from the drama, its not worth it! You are right about one thing and that is MONEY! True friends should not be jelous if good things happen for you! THey should rejoice in that and not wish for you to fail. I understood what you meant when you said what you did re: Kyle maybe wishing for Kim to "fail". I think sometimes this "sickness' in families of addiction runs deep and sometimes ppl get caught up and if they don't have someone to take care of, or drama, OR if they aren't miserable, they are not happy and have to have drama or unhappiness to be happy. think that is what you meant. Kyle may be one of those ppl as she is so used to having that in her life, she won't know what to do with herself without it! anyhow, good luck and LOVE YA! God bless!!!!! Keep up the great work!!!! Big HUGS! :)
Love you Brandi hope to see you on your own show someday!
Please think about your promise to never speak about the terrible twosome after the book tour. L.R. just gets off on every word you say to her. She is obsessed with you, SWF and is using the kids to manipulate you. Don't give her the power. Don't respond in the media, use the attorneys if you have to but don't comment publicly, she's crazy and dangerous.
Brandi I really like you, you have been through a lot & are standing on your own 2 feet stronger then ever.....but please for your childrens sake, turn your filter on once in a while, only b/c they are going to end up being teased or bullied @ school b/c of some of the things that you do on the show...so just keep that in mind - other then that - keep your chin up & stay strong b/c I have seen the good in you on the show!
Well thank goodness her kids actually do have the father and step mother they do, because having a mother that acts and talks the way you do, is not something I would be proud of or even something I would think sons would want even say you were their mother. Its an embarrassment. You really do not have any really people in your life, you turned on Adrian, you turn on everyone at one point in your life, money can not buy class or manners. Maybe take a parenting class at least.
Since when is "honesty" with cruelty, worthy of praises. Have you ever heard of the sayings: "truth in love" "if you can't say anything nice, don't say it at all" "love you enemies" or how about this classic, "turn the other cheek" all your "honesty" did nothing but cause hurt towards others, how selfish, even if you WERE hurt by some of the ladies.......forgive, be the bigger person, choose love, and MOVE on! Don't you want your kids to see you on the show and be proud of how you handled situations? Wouldn't you want YOUR kids to handle situations gracefully and lovingly? The attitude that you bring to show just make me sad, sad for you, sad for you kids, sad for you "friends", and sad for your "enemies". I think you seem like SUCH a fun happy go lucky gal, when your nice, and when everyone says things you want to hear, I just wish we saw more of that, than the other side.
As far as talking about "threesomes" we get it....you're a "sexual" person. have a little more class than that.
I don't get it. Brandi trashes people all the time with her blunt rudeness and it is considered refreshing and different. Nene expresses her opinion all of a sudden, she's a bully and has a huge ego. What's the difference between the two? At least we know Nene wouldn't mention something extremely personal about someone's life like Brandi did. Nene was talking about what she observed, and what she believed was her experience with Brandi, who was drunk at the time they met. Not everyone can like each other.
Brandi, I watched WWHL with Nene on it and she said you were saying anything about anyone you want and that you are a mess. Coming from Nene that took me by surprise. But I simply adore you and I am not sure why.....maybe because the other women kept attacking you. But I love your personality, your good looks and your ability to forgive easily. My point is that I hope next season you are neither victim or villain. Stay sweet, don't talk about the other ladies (well, that's stupid of me cuz you never talked bad about your friends). I would put this on twitter but I hate that site and I can't maneuver on it. It is not user friendly at all. Love you, hurry with your second book and never, ever trust Kim or Kyle. They will step all over you at any time because they are very angry about the fans loving you, and they are elitists who look down on you.
Wow, you seem to have everyone fooled. Sometimes wolves do dress in sheep's clothing. Please don't hide your mean girl ways behind "honesty". You bloggers need to wake up or I guess you can just keep buying her books!
I loved your book! I was hoping it would hold me over till next season - a Brandi pacifier if you will, but I devoured it page by page - now what is there to hold me over till next season? The Real Housewives of OC? They are like the mark down rack in the back of the store - you get a deal on it but you don't love it.
LOVE you, Brandi. I was a little ashamed at thinking Kyle would like Kim to fail in her efforts to get/stay sober. How happy I was to know that I'm not a mean person, but that I'm not the only one who feels that way! You are a breath of fresh air. Your true friends are Lisa and Yolanda. As for the others, keep your back to the wall, darlin'. Love you. Love the show. Loathe faye arsenic; she is Kyle's mouthpiece. She's never around at most events. She is fed all the gossip by Kyle.
You are a strong woman that doesn't take shit, have a free spirit and are definetly not a shame of showing your beutiful body. It's mothers like you, that rase up sons that knows how to treat women right. If I didn't knew better, I would think you grew up in western europe. There is not a fake bone in your body
I agree it is not helpful to Kim's sobriety to have her sister Constantly complaining about it and making her cry at parties , it's like Kyle does want her to fail. I think , honestly , Kim was a bigger child star and there is sibling rivalry Kyle has and Kim doesn't understand. it must have been hard for Kyle to have her sister get all the attention. Anyway they both are not solid people, not genuinely reliable and painful to watch. You have beauty and truth like Yoland and Lisa. I hope you find either a really good man or career , hopefully both. Love to you! Ignore the haters , half are probably the fans of a certain singer. Keep the faith and keep moving forward..
Rock on, Brandi! You, Lisa & Yolanda - & of course Ken & Giggy - are my favorites! Perhaps a poor word choice, but I totally got what you were saying about Kyle in regard to Kim. A lot of family members of addicts display the same sort of attitude. Not because they wish the addict to fail, but because they're afraid the addict will & cause more disappointment.
I was so disappointed to see the smiles and looks of pleasure from Brandi over other people's suffering - she seemed to take pleasure when others were fessing up to their mistakes and problems. Mean doesn't begin to describe it.
@WilliamSue This is the most interesting thing about Brandi - she is actually not loyal. Regardless of how folks felt about Adrienne vs. Lisa, Adrienne was a supporter of Brandi's. She is the one who introduced her to the show. She is the one who defended her constantly during her first season. Adrienne was good to her. Brandi completely threw her under the bus to jump on Lisa's side, because that was the more popular and safe place to be. I was never a fan of Adrienne's, and I completely adore Lisa, but I could never understand how folks didn't see how Brandi played this. I said all last year that eventually Brandi would do the same thing to Lisa and sure enough it looks like she does. I admit it will be fun to watch Brandi get what is coming to her. I have been waiting so long.
I am certainly not a Brandi fan, but her turning on Lisa will be the reason I watch. Those two viciously destroyed Adrienne for no apparent reason. I love it when conniving witches turn on each other. Wooohoooo.
bravochic: speak for yourself. I looove it when the conspiring snakes turn on each other. This should be interesting. Brandi was Lisa's puppet......but a nasty little puppet that will bite its master. Like I said, should be an interesting episode.
@bravochic why should she get fired, you were all for what she did to Adrienne who introduced her in the show and helped her resolve her issues with the Richards sisters. When Kyle and Camille tried to stop Brandi for saying something her child rug didn't even know yet, the fans attacked. "What's good for the goose is good for the gander".
@rosyposy Remind Kyle about that word too. I hate the way she used it in front of her young children in the car on the way to her opening.
@patcaseygold if you were all for what she did to Adrienne like Lisa was get ready to take your own medicine. I always thought Lisa put Brandi up to go after Adrienne and now it's about to back fire, it only right lol. Brandi called Lisa the puppet master trying to control everyone hahahaha. Kyle better stay out of it.
@patcaseygold That was so uncalled for. How could you possibly feel good about saying a person should be put in a dumpster? Yes, she does have a job. She is on a reality TV show and I dare say makes more money in the short filming period than you or I make in a year. If she has a sugar daddy, we'll good for her. After all, she is single. Talent? Let's face facts talent is not running rampant on this show.
@patcaseygold Good post. On the mark.
@Trisha2013 I completely agree with you, Trisha. I came on to write exactly that but you beat me to it. Initially I didn't like Brandi, but figured if Lisa took her under her wing, she must've saw something that I didn't see on the show, but now she turns on Lisa the person who defended her to everyone. Brandi is truly a back-stabber, two-faced user and I hope she will continue to have a miserable existance. Now I can understand why her husband left her. She's a LOSER!
What generalization are you making about Nene? She was the first villain of all the housewives and she has trashed everybody all the time. Just curious about who said Nene was a bully and huge ego? And I don't think anyone on this blog feels like Brandi is rude. Can't speak for everyone but I find most of your statement very general and exaggerated.
OK, I will keep buying her books.
@Lisaquirk Dear Lisa: Sure Brandi could care less. Just so you know.
@Fromtheshowmestate @WilliamSue I was never a fan of Brandi's. I saw her victim act from a mile away. I even mentioned several times that she is the female Cedric. I didn't care for how Adrienne handled her situation with Lisa, but now I wonder if Brandi stirred that pot and let Adrienne take the heat for it. And I'm tired of people defending Brandi and calling her honest. It doesn't matter if something is true or not, but it does matter if it's not your business. I know the current expression is to call someone out, but in my day, we called those people tattle tales. And nobody likes a tattle tale. Brandi is trash and finally people are starting to see the real thing.
@rosyposy Completely agree. I was actually not a fan of Adrienne's, but what happened to her was just horrible. I couldn't believe that Brandi was doing it, and that Lisa was sitting back and watching it all go down. Anyone who watched that and didn't foresee similar betrayals between these two gals was not paying attention. More than anything, however, I will look forward to Kyle being vindicated.
@Mature Bravo for Mature! Spot on with your comment. How strange that folks had no problem with what she did to Adrienne. It is incredible that folks seem to think it is OK to do someone wrong just because they don't particularly like them. Wrong is always wrong, and what Brandi did to Adrienne gave us smart ones a glimpse into her true character.
@suzyq1234 Oh, do you mean when they were in the Limo and got cut off by another car and thought they were going to crash? The time when she said it, and then covered her mouth with her hand because she realized she had said it in front of her kids? Yeah, that is exactly the same as Brandi throwing it out constantly. Geez. Brandi fans/Kyle haters have absolutely no grasp of context.
