The newest Real Housewife of Beverly Hills Kathryn Edwards finally graced us with her presence. On last nights episode, there were many whispers with meeting Kathryn being that she was the former wife of Marcus Allen who was O.J. Simpson’s best friend. Kathryn took to her Bravo blog to dish about her introduction to the ladies and how it wasn’t what she expected. See what Kathryn had to say below!
Finally! I’ve been waiting for this week for quite some time, and I’m happy to introduce myself.
I have to say, I never thought I’d do something like this, because I have always enjoyed a mostly private life, but I’m sure that things will change now…I welcome it all.
Lisa Rinna is someone I have known for over 20 years, and although we hadn’t kept in contact over time, she’s always someone I enjoy running into. Her energy and humor are in a league of their own, so of course I was happy to see her at Lisa Vanderpump’s charity event. What I wasn’t happy about was that the first thing out of her mouth was O.J…really? OK, if that’s what you think when you see me, I guess I haven’t made much of any impression on you. Beside the fact that I don’t think Rinna ever saw me once with O.J., but whatever…I’ll give her new memories.
Listening to the ladies talk about me and something that happened so tragically 22 years ago was disappointing…not the way I want to start off new friendships. Had I known that there was so much filling in the blanks based on hearsay, I might have thought twice about drinks, but alas…the treat of viewing the conversations after the fact.
Walking into a room, especially when it’s a new crowd, can be unnerving to say the least, but I felt comfortable with Rinna (even with the shady comment) and Vanderpump, so I thought “why not?”
I guess that part of this is a long time coming…something that bothered me for years…so hearing Kyle ask me if I know Faye Resnick was a given. The writing was on the wall, and I was expecting it. I wasn’t defensive, not even slightly. I expected it, but the truth is that Faye has never met me. I don’t even know if she knows what I look like.
I think “irritated” is a better word than defensive, because for years I got a bad taste in my mouth at the thought of Faye Resnick for a litany of reasons–not all personal to me–but nonetheless, I’m not a fan. I know Kyle and Faye are friends, so I can only surmise that there must be something that I don’t see in Faye, something redeeming. People can change, right?
On a lighter note, I enjoyed them all that afternoon. I’m a playful person, and I like to have fun and tease in conversations. Hopefully you all will see the fun side of me. I’m competitive, playful, and enjoy a good discussion. My husband and I travel like nomads, and the experiences of the world have taught me a lot. I am fiercely loyal to those I love and have a strong need for fairness and truth.
So, that’s it for now…THANKS for watching! I’m excited to see where it all goes and how the adventure I have chosen turns out…time will tell!
Please follow me on Instagram and Twitter…I’m new to it compared to the others, but I’m having fun, and I love to see who you are as well.”
Thoughts on Kathryn’s blog? What do you think of Kathryn so far? Do you think Kathryn and Kyle will have issues?
