Not much happening today so I suppose it’s time to do some purple penning. I have a little bit of RHONY news but not really anything earth shattering. So let’s start with LVP and whatever she is squawking about this week.
Now let us begin to understand exactly what has transpired here as we delve into the complicated scenario that we have witnessed, the murky quagmire, where truth is scant on the ground.
Jesus Christ. Could you be any more dramatic? Yesterday, I posted about David Cassidy’s appearance on Dr. Phil to discuss his dementia diagnosis. Immediately the comments were about his alcoholism. He claims he is sober. Most of the commenters didn’t believe him. This is exactly what has been happening with Kim over several seasons. Remember the whole praying to the trash can? The slimeball boyfriend and the bag of pills? The van ride with Rinna where she was high as a kite and scary as hell? This is not a murky quagmire at all. LVP made similar allegations in Paris. This is the same old tired story line we’ve recycled for years. Is Kim sober or not, because at times it doesn’t seem like it. That’s the truth more often than not. If you are struggling with your sobriety on a reality show, your reality will be discussed. Often. By everyone.
After Mexico, I would assume Lisa Rinna came to the conclusion that the probability of Eden’s reiteration of their conversation being accurate was more likely than not.
It was captured, documented for all to see, and I suppose, as Eden remained steadfast in her opinion, it must’ve provoked her to admit that it was said. Eileen comforting her friend, stating how wonderful she is, how she always owns her stuff, is ironic as Rinna previously had been in utter denial.
Why do so few people understand the term “ironic”? Irony is a state of affairs or an event that seems deliberately contrary to what one expects and is often amusing as a result. Eileen supporting her friend, is not ironic it all. It is what friends do.
I seem to have trouble understanding how Lisa Rinna keeps remarking that I must be enjoying this. Yes, there was some sort of vindication from her brutal attacks last year, as we shine a light on her recollection skills, but the most important factor is that she seems relentless in her judgement of Kim.
Please. You don’t give two shits about Kim Richards. You’ve said and done much worse to Kim over the years when she was actively drinking. Rinna lying about not remembering what she said caused you to literally dance in Mexico rambling that if she is lying about saying something, then she was lying last season. No one with a functioning brain and even those of us with brains of questionable integrity believe that you were the one behind the Munchausen conversations last season. Rinna trying to lie her way out the Kim conversation in no way absolves you.
I love Kim. We started this experience seven years ago, and I bore witness to her struggles with sobriety. I know her journey has been a challenging, painful one. As she has been so successful lately in her attempt to remain sober, it must be crucifying to have people doubt you, have the doubt thrust into an arena, where it is up for public scrutiny, all because of an hour or so interaction at Kyle’s house, where there was zero evidence to give Rinna’s claims any credence.
Oh, let’s look at what LVP said about Kim in January of 2015.
I cannot fathom how one can arrive–with the knowledge that every moment will be recorded, documented in front of millions, where they are absolutely positive that interactions in a group setting are required–without one’s faculties, albeit due to drink or drugs and not expect people to comment on irrational and volatile behavior.
Now I have utmost sympathy for anyone dealing with addiction, but as we immerse ourselves in this demanding arena, the truth always comes out, so it begs the question, if we have something to hide, where we are defensive, is it wise to test our resilience in our fight against the demands that being a public figure holds us to?
I do recall a similar situation, myself, two years ago in Paris, where Kim’s demeanor was questionable, her words were slurring and she was not herself. I made the mistake of suggesting she had taken a sleeping pill to combat the demands of jet lag, almost hoping that this would be a legitimate and understandable explanation for her bizarre behavior. I was met with an angry response–how dare I insinuate that she was not committed to her sobriety? But her actions spoke otherwise.My point being is if we subject our friends to questionable conduct, aren’t we therefore justified to call it out as Lisa R. did in the car?
This is just more of LVP flip flopping on situations as it suits her purposes.
I think LR has good qualities, and I have enjoyed our friendship at times, but Harry stating that LR has always tried to help her and has total empathy for Kim is laughable if it wasn’t so ridiculous. Lisa passed her resentment of Kim to Eden, knowing that Eden was eager to immerse herself in this group of women, and with her history felt, she could speak from authority.
Well, as much as I respect and adore Mr. Hamlin, telling his wife just to speak the truth and speak from the heart is utter nonsense. When we had the conversations and assertions in Mexico, she vociferously denied saying any of those pertinent statements! Also sending texts threatening to “f— someone up” does not resemble empathy. You can misuse it and abuse it, but the truth will prevail. Her intentions are coupled with retaliation from their altercation two years ago.
I agree with you here. Rinna does not like Kim. Kim does not like Rinna. These two are very transparent on that fact. Unlike LVP and Yolanda who despise each other, plot against each other all while pretending to be friends. Rinna says what she means.
What I can’t quite digest is this: Rinna spoke openly to Eden, saying she “trusted her.” She insinuates it was a private conversation, but we all know that is not so. What difference did it make if Eden repeated it to me? Eden was protecting herself, explaining why she had been eager to get involved with talk of sobriety. Prudent? Maybe not, but after her own personal experiences, maybe she felt time was of the essence. She heard Kim was “close to dying” and felt compelled to act as she valued Rinna’s opinion.
It is certainly of interest that Eden came to LVP and not Rinna, or Eileen.
So at Carnie Wilson’s cake tasting, she retracts her defensive statements of innocence, capitulates and f—ing cops to it. Can we all give ourselves permission to make strident accusations, but as long as we “own it,” we are exonerated, free from blame? This was a beautiful example of mea culpa…a little late for my liking, but there we have it, and on we move.
Yes. Admitting to your statements that you believe to be true and owning it should end the discussion. I believe that Rinna believes everything she said. It’s up to Kim and Kyle to respond to Rinna’s beliefs. Remind me why you are so invested in this again? Oh yes, the glee of seeing Rinna back herself into a corner that you wrongly view as vindication of you. It’s not about you, LVP. It’s a situation between Rinna and Kim and to some degree Kyle. You should be as disinterested in the subject as Erika Jayne.
