Kim explains why it was so hard for her to rest post-nose surgery.

on Feb 14, 20130

Hi everyone! Hope You are having a great week so far! So I want to give you little update on the whole nose situation!!!

My surgery went amazingly well, and I really wasn't all that nervous. Although I did have some last-minute fears about letting go of my old nose. Hehe! So I reached out to my sisters, Kathy and Kyle, before I made the big step that morning! After carefully considering and being well aware of my sobriety, Dr. Grigoryants and I (along with my other doctor) moved forward with my surgery!

I love my doctor. He made this a great experience for me! As for me, I felt quite reassured when I saw him that morning rested and happy. His surgery room was clean, haha! And the people he had working with him made feel safe. All in all, it was a great experience!

My daughter Brookie was there for me when I woke and she was there to take me home and tucked me in my bed. XOXO! My good friend Melody Ganouna of 20 years was there to relieve my Brookie. Melody has been a great friend to me over the years and has been doing my hair and make up and was there to lend support to me and to take care of me when I came home from my surgery. Then after a little nap, my sister Kyle was there.

She gave me the rundown on what went down in Vegas! I can't say I'm sorry I missed it! One more drama I missed! Sorry girls I'd rather be getting my nose done! I was excited for Kyle to see me and my nose, and I was glad to spend some time with her. My kids were at my side the whole time after my procedure and I have amazing friends. That were with me everyday! The hard part was keeping me down! I had no pain, no swelling, and no bruising!!! So I kept wanting to run around and do things, but, of course, my kids and friends were encouraging me to stay in bed! So it was Battle of the Bed! Haha! Oh yeah and then there's Dr. G! He was calling and stopping by! So I was quickly jumping back in bed with ice again! Haha!

hi  Kim

I love your nose, can I please have the name of the doctor and his office number. I would like to have a consultation for my nose job!!!

Kim, I think your new nose is lovely.  I'm glad you and Kyle are getting closer again.  Don't let any of the other wives get you down ever.  You stay strong and healthy.  By the way, Kim, I recently saw the updated version of Race Back to Witch Mountain.  Was that you playing a waitress in the bar?

Kim~ I sooooo relate to your relationship with your sister!! I have the same exact relationship with my sister.  We try to respect & say: we are different, let's be open & respect eachother.  I recently had to tell my sister that she has some faults, too.  Like yours, my sister is sometimes cold & pretty much always acts like she is superior.  They are threatened by their inability to control & pigeon hole us.  And, I recently realized that my sister has been competing with me for all these years & probably will always be doing weird stuff because she wants to "win" this competition.

Kim, 

I am in my mid 20s and struggling with my alcoholism. It gives me inspiration that you keep trying and it seems that this time you've really made up your mind to get sober. I was so happy to see on the show (when you were in Paris) that you love your sober life. It gave me the inspiration to try and get sober again today.

Thanks for sharing your story. It must be very hard to be sharing all of this so publicly. My heart goes out to you. .

On another note, I was really happy to see "Maurice" give you that bag. It was a nice gesture and I hope that it's symbolic of how things can go with your relationship in the future. 

Don't listen to the haters.... and best wishes.

Kim, My biggest concern about you is something different from what everyone else is writing about.  I'm amazed each time you are on the show with how childlike (and childish) your talk and behavior are.  Your writing style is very childish as well -- good writers don't use the exclamation mark as often as you do.  In the past, I wrote this off to alcoholism or your being bullied by Kyle.  But even in sobriety, there is a quality about you that seems as though you never grew up.  Maybe the fact that you were a child actress, had to work instead of play and support your whole family has something to do with it.  We've seen how losing his childhood made Michael Jackson build a childhood around him as an adult with his Neverland amusement park in his back yard.  When he wasn't performing, his talk and actions were childish as well.  He was also bullied as a child by his father.

 

Perhaps this childlike quality contributes to your drinking problem.  At any rate, I wish you would take some courses at a nearby university like UCLA, perhaps even get a degree.  Then look for mature work to do.  You need to take your mind and actions away from the Housewives franchise; all of the talk and action there will continue to bring you back to the issues that are holding you down.  

 

It would be very special to someday see you as a better educated person with adult-like behavior.  Someone vastly more in control and mature than the person you are now.

What the hell?? You logged on to tear her down??? Really?? She's the one, the ONLY one that has been true. Really true to who she is. Build a bridge. And get over it. Sorry Kim, sorry you have to listen to this.

Kim I must say, you are the bravest and the only sincere 'house wife' on the show!! You are tackling your demons and helping Taylor to tackle hers. I love that, because you are able to do both!!! I just hope Kyle can or has stood by you. For both you and Taylor. (Did I spell that correctly??) You are an inspiration!!!

Kim,I am aghast;2 mnths sobriety does not make an expert at diagnoising someone elses alcoholisim'in fact'it is a SELF-diagnoised disease and under your syrupy sweet facade of wanting to be helpful is our everpresent selfcenterness(we can all applaud Kim at saving Taylors life)when in actuallity you may have made her want to hide her drinking!!!!Oh,who knows'I cleary have a resentment so thank you for the opportunity to work the steps today.I am 22yrs sober,took me 10yrs of relaspsing so today I get to work with the in&outers!!!I strongly suggest you read "Working With Others in our Big Book& I will,too!!!So,thank you for reminding me'that I,too cannot afford to become complacent&that I need to keep my own side of the street clean&exstend a hand ,not my opinions(as I just have!!!)& only when I'm asked can I give my opinions!!!!!So,remember,the rooms are always open for us!!!!Thaks Kim!!!!Diane Ravenscraft

I really wish you could be honest...all the way back to last season when Brandi CALLED YOU OUT!!! We all know she was right..it was so obvious! Shame on you for spear heading the hunt of Brandi...She was only being honest..the only one being honest and you and your horrible sister were nasty to her. I'm pretty sure it back fired because everyone loves Brandi and are tired or you and your Wannabe sister! 

Get a job girl!!

Geez, Kim you get a new nose and then stick everywhere ......where it doesn't belong. Why don't you mind your own business, and stop causing unnecessary trouble for everyone.

Oh Kim, Kim, Kim... You are definitely in denial. It takes an addict to know an addict and you are one. I see so many disingenuous actions and comments. You do have a problem with telling the truth. I think most viewers would forgive you if you would have only admitted you were using some kind of chemical substance. I have been addicted to opiates for five years due to a serious injury but I do not use that as an excuse. I recognize my problem. You aren't fooling anyone sister, you are very transparent. Perhaps you should quit the show, it appears it is too intrusive for you while you are trying to cope with personal growth issues. I do hope you will stop lying to yourself if you can't admit the truth to the viewers. Good luck and I do hope you are not on next season. You do need a break, it is apparent the show is just too overwhelming for you.

Hi Kim, I enjoyed watching your excitement at your party, you were so cute.  It was nice to see the guests having some laughs and I liked how the guests were sober.  I took your comments about Taylor as true concern, not in a mean girl way but out of concern for her and her daughter.  Many were mislead by Kyle's selective communication about the child care situation, it was portrayed by her in a poor way for everyone at the party... and us viewers.  I'm glad Taylor had the chance to explain her side.  I think Taylor's drinking causes her to have poor behavior's at times....I have thought that for many episodes not just in this season.  I think that you should consider letting Taylor figure this out on her own.  She has been through a tremendous loss and trauma and has been working with a therapist/doctor according to other episodes of this show.  Keep working on yourself, I think you are on the right path.

It is no wonder that Kathy keeps her distance from both you and Kyle.   It appears she distances herself more from Kyle than you.  She has her own issues with a daughter who became famous from a sex tape and made headlines for a coke bust in Lost Wages.  This is a Kitty Kelly book waiting to happen.

You and Kyle are deplorable. What you both did to Taylor at your pathetic nose party was nothing short of "character assassination," probably worse, maybe slander. how dare you, of all people, question the parenting and sobriety of someone else. I sincerely hope both you and Kyle are shown the door next season. You are both just too vile to watch. Good luck with your sobriety tho.

In response to some of the people who don't get what Hollywood and Beverly Hills is all about..it is about the Me,,,The "I", the ego..and then some, if you can't handle it, don't watch the show.  Kim, you look marvelous!....Marvelous I tell ya!...Great work.  Keep on truckin.

You a tremendous asset to the show, you bring a breath of fresh air to the show with your honesty and forth right personality.  I think you have such a funny sense of humor I just crack up laughing so hard when you make these little remarks and your facial expressions are hilarious.  You go Girl!....LOL..By the way your hair looks great too.  Your fans love you and we understand, so not to be concerned, will hear from you when you get a chance.

You really need to come out of the clouds and look in the mirror and really look at your self, you have hurt alot of people and it seems that you could care less of your past actions this season and last season you really need to say your sorry to Brandi and then to the people who watch this show

I watched the previews from Paris, and looks like Kim is speaking way too soon,  

You always know when Kim is on something when she starts fumbling with her hair

Looking forward to your blog that is LATE again to hear your explanation of why you were nasty to Taylor.  In the preview for next week, it looks like you are trying to have a one on one intervention for Taylor.... omg... that is so funny.  YOU.... still do not recognize your problem and issues and YOU are going to talk to Taylor???   Pot meet kettle.

Talk about a hypocrite! Your entire blog is narcissistic (enough about YOUR nose), followed by "thank God they didn't talk behind MY back at Lisa's tea when I (per usual) cancelled at the last minute". Then of course, you go on to cast a giant negative spotlight on Taylor's decision to go away for the weekend with the man she's been seeing, on a weekend when she'd made responsible care arrangements for her daughter. You cast aspersions on her parenting, her sobriety and her responsibility. It didn't come across as caring, rather as putting her on blast for being out of control. As many others have stated, "have you watched yourself over the past few season"? Taylor did nothing wrong in this instance and she certainly doesn't owe YOU any explanation. Hypocrite much?

Keep working on yourself ,Kim.

There is absolutely nothing "wrong" with Taylor trying to find love.

She explained about her daughter, and her personal life is non of your business.

She doesn't owe you an explanation.

You said in your side interview that Taylor should have said “Something to let all of us know that what happened was NOT OK!! Really, Really!” Did you even see season 1 or 2? Something WAS really WRONG!!!! How many times did you contact the others to explain your behaviors….. Can you say Hypocrite!

Your new puppy is adorable! I hope he calms down soon. Your new house is beautiful as well. You're looking so much healthier this season, and it's great to see you getting stronger. I wish you all the best for your continued sobriety.

 @donna4208 I caught a little of  the movie one day also. It was right around the time of that scene, and yes Kim does a cameo appearance playing the waitress.

@RoseWind lol....I use ellipses like Kim uses exclamation points....there is a reason.....I use a nookor tablet and it does not allow me to double space...so everything looks like it runs together...i try to break up the cloistered sentences...some people despise ellipses marks....maybe Kim is using a similar device to write her blogs....and she is trying to keep thoughts separate...just a thought

 @Diane11281951 exactly, self diagnosed that is why I called Older...hypocritical.  If you really are "working it", you wouldn't be as vocal as you are about AA, it isn't their way to get involved in public controversy.  You aren't the only recovered person on this site.

 @olderBUTwiser

 Talk about hypocritical.  People on this blog berate Kim for commenting on Taylor's situation.  Olderbutdense you don't even know for a fact if Kim is using...you are just projecting your own  "expert"  experience being a current addict. What a hypocrite...I feel sorry for you haters that are so insecure you attempt to put Kim down in such pathetic and weak comments.I can't take anything you say seriously.

 @CheekyGirl It's amazing Taylor let those 2 into her house after what they did, but I suspect she didn't know the extent of the bashing those nasty women gave her at the nose party until now.

 @AudreyEH Kim thinks she's seeing ghosts or spirits. I'd say it's more like DT's.

 @Lavendar2 Hold on a minute!  I thought that Yolanda and Marisa brought the, "breath of fresh air".  Who is bringing the the whisper of new oxygen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide and argon?  Or is it the scent of Kim's breath mints, Marisa's gum or Yo's lemons?  If there is an award for "Breath of Fresh Air", we must get down to specifics to crown the proper Queen of Fresh Air.

 @gogo17 This is what I love, despite sometimes being frustrating.  Get 4 people in the fellowship in a room, and you come out with 5 opinions.  Just like if you said the word "recovered" in the rooms, you'd get to see people having fits right in front of your eyes. LOL.  I'm glad to see others in recovery on here, and it reminds me to appreciate the variety of approaches we have.
