Friends of the Real Housewives, Dana Wilkey and Brandi Glanville blogged about episode 18 of RHOBH. Brandi talks about Kim’s late arrival while Dana says what she would have said to Kim if she was in Hawaii
Hawaii! I have always said that life is way too short not to have fun. So when Kim and Ken finally arrived I chose to stay as far away from her as possible and just enjoy myself.
However, when Kim spoke about Taylor at dinner, I do think she had some wisdom about the situation. I did have a good laugh about Adrienne and Paul’s sex life. To be clear, I have no desire to know the ins and outs of their personal life. It was just funny. Lisa and I share a similar sense of humor. Both of our minds are in the gutter! Haha.
Lisa untying my bathing suit was all in good fun. I am just glad it stayed on. What you didn’t see (thank goodness!) is that I got so sea sick on the boat and for the half of the trip, I was leaning off the back trying my hardest not to throw up in front of the camera.
Honestly, 99 percent of the time I’m just joking around. My mom always said I laugh harder at my own jokes than anyone else, she is right. And, again, to be clear, I was not flirting with the captain of the ship. I just happen to be friendly and in a bathing suit, so it came across that way. He was very cool though.
At the final dinner Kyle seemed to have reached her wits end with Kim and I feel like she really needed to get this off her chest because their tension had been an underlying theme of this entire trip.
I am by no means an authority on these matters, but I have been around a lot of people in my life with drug and alcohol problems. I helped to save my best friend Jennifer when she was at her rock bottom, and I have had to walk away from people in my life that I couldn’t help. At the time, I had to stay focused on my own health and sanity (and that of my children) as I went through my divorce. I wish nothing but the best for Kim. I hope she conquers this battle and gets better for herself and for family.
Overall, I did enjoy growing closer with all the ladies on this trip.
Did anyone find it funny that Kyle didn’t say what she thought the truth was to Kim? I did. I was so wishing I had been at that table that night because the amount of times Kyle asked Kim to cough up the truth drove me mad! And just to make it stop, and of course out of genuine concern for Kim, I think I would have finally blurted out my opinion: “Kim do you think maybe all of these things your sister is pointing out that you’re missing and your slurred speech could be because of the medication you are taking or the dose level? That’s nothing to be ashamed of but it’s obvious at this point so let’s talk about it so can we help you!” From what I saw of Kim’s discussion with Paul at Paul’s night of beauty, that seems to be the problem to me.
I was surprised to see that already Kim’s relationship had begun the journey down Dysfunctional Lane, as he did seem to enable her odd behavior. I just couldn’t help but start to wonder if I had made a bad judgment call on that situation. I really thought they were two eccentric people that seemed happy, but I only met him twice so that wasn’t enough to make a call, I guess.
Anyway, I wasn’t there enjoying the sun and fun with the girls. I was at home. Initially I was bummed that I wasn’t invited to Hawaii, but it turned out to be meant to be.
After the White Party, the women had really seemed to turn their back on Taylor, and I wanted her to know I was there and that her friends that were so important to her would come around. I wanted to remind her that their frustration and doubt with her situation would subside. Everyone was acting like as the friends of those caught in the Cycle of Abuse often do, and thank god I knew that so was able to stand by Taylor during this difficult time and not give in to the temptation to give up on her. Her friendship means a lot to me to this day. I will always have her back.
I’ll wrap this blog up with this highlight for me on this week’s episode: Lisa’s butt did in fact get stuck in the balcony because it was too big to fit through the space. I only rejoice in this because of Ken’s “chubby” comment. Ken you can suck it!”
