Brandi Glanville is taking to her blog to discuss part one of the RHOBH reunion. Glanville shares her thoughts on Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump’s friendship. Brandi insistsÂ that Kyle backstabbed Lisa and thatÂ Kyle told her Lisa had an affair on Ken and that they filed bankruptcy. Brandi says Kyle slow and not smart.
Brandi writes, “It would be nice if the RHOBH reunion were a time to look back, reminisce, and laugh at the past year, like most reunions, but Housewivesâ€™ reunions are more like Seinfeld’s Festivus with the “The Airing of Grievances” taking center stage.
We see the ladies looking beautiful, Yolanda especially. Considering what Yo is going through, it’s amazing how calm, cool, and collected she appeared. Loved the Victoria Beckham dress.
As you can tell, I was stressed just being there. No, I didn’t want to be there. I knew certain people would be in attack mode, and they were. I saw it during the entire season, so why would it be different at the reunion?
There is still a misunderstanding I’d like to try to clear up again, gently. When I spoke of a Housewife’s daughter, I was trying to make an analogy. I had seen a few unfair and untrue HW blogs take false potshots at the young lady in question, the same type of untrue potshots that are thrown at me. I was trying to say, “When a stranger tries to label someone something ugly, even if the allegation isn’t true, it can still sting, annoy, and cause a defensive reaction.” It’s hard to hear unfair lies about yourself or someone you love. My example was misunderstood, because I wasn’t clear and chose the wrong words. Yolanda speaks several languages and my Cali girl speak isn’t always one of them. Anyway, it’s my fault I didn’t explain myself better. I hope I finally did now.
As for Lisa V., I believe she knew exactly what I had tried to say, twisted my words, and brought it up to manufacture an ax to grind. Kyle? Kyle can’t follow most conversations, so it’s a case of her simply piggybacking Lisa V. or anyone attacking others.
What other points require addressing? Kyle DID backstab Lisa V. and Ken Todd last year. She ABSOLUTELY told me Lisa V. had an affair and had filed a bankruptcy. I was simply used to deliver the message…on TV. My fault. I was manipulated and let myself be used. I have to take complete responsibility for that. I lived and learned.
What’s odd is that Lisa V. and Kyle obviously don’t like each other and have nothing in common. Lisa V. is quick and smart. Kyle is slow and not smart. They use each other, backstab each other, and mock each other every chance they get. However, they do like to get together and pretend to be “classy” ladies, boast about money, and plot together.
So actually, Lisa V. and Kyle may be perfect for each other. Enough said there.
The rest of the reunion, I don’t have much to say. Kim was great, strong, on point, and funny. And, yes, we are still friends. Thanks to Andy for trying to take up for me. I didn’t understand his analogy about horseplay, or maybe â€œpuppyplayâ€ at the time. But, the intent is more important than the delivery, right? Iâ€™ve been trying to get that point across for years. But SOME people like to focus on a misunderstood or misstated word or phrase, rather than the intent. I won’t be one of them.
As anyone could see, I was anxious, and it was only a matter of time before I was reactionary. I tried very, very hard not to be. You have no idea how difficult it is to have people screaming at you from two sides and to remain calm. In similar situations, you can walk away. I donâ€™t have that option very often on RHOBH. If you know me, you know Iâ€™ve been diagnosed with anxiety, so it is what it is. Stress me out past my comfort zone, F- bombs fly.”
