It seems people can’t stop talking about Kyle Richards inviting Faye Resnick to dinner on the last episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. If you are a Kyle Richards fan, she could really use your help over on her Bravo blog. Today her comments passed the 1,000 mark. I didn’t scroll back very far but they were all pretty blistering and I didn’t see a single one supporting her. As I said earlier, Faye Resnick’s blog was pulled a few days ago. Apparently, she could not weather the storm of her own commenter backlash. I still say that the number of comments a Bravo blog gets plays a part in whether or not you are offered a contract next season. If I’m right, Kyle can take heart in the fact she’s all but assured a return for the next season. Let’s take a look at who stands where with regard to Faye Resnick.
This is Kyle’s story and she is sticking to it despite the fact that no on one planet Earth believes this version. “Lisa said that maybe Faye was speaking on my behalf “once again”. Well, first off, I have never needed a mouthpiece. I have always been one to be honest. I told Brandi how I felt about what she said right away. I have NEVER needed anyone to speak on my behalf. Plus, Faye certainly has a mind of her own and would never be anyone’s mouthpiece. If Lisa was referring to the “Dinner Party From Hell” with Alison Dubois, Lisa knows as well as ALL of us, I had NO CLUE what we were walking into that night. I had never met Alison Dubois. None of us had. ANY speaking up Faye did that night was purely as a friend being defensive. As any good friend would.”
And here is where her castmates stand…
Of course Adrienne is thrilled. It seems pretty significant that she mentions only Mauricio by name here.Adrienne: “First and foremost, I want to thank my fans for your kind words through this very difficult time. Also, I’m grateful for the support for all my girlfriends on the show and Mauricio, he is an example of a true gentleman. It’s difficult for me to elaborate on the events of the last few episodes; I am still in the process of my divorce and under a gag order, which prevents me from speaking about my family.” (TT note: I wonder which party got the gag order on the other. It seems that both parties were running to the tabloids during the divorce. Also interesting to see that Adrienne is still fond of Mauricio.)
But four of the other housewives are pretty clearly on team Brandi.
Lisa: “We were invited to Kyle’s house for dinner. If I had known that Faye was going to be there, all clued in, on what was supposed to be a secret, I would have possibly refused the invitation and advised Brandi to do likewise. I have memories of another dinner party where Faye was back up, mouthpiece, or whatever one would like to call her. It was an impossible situation.”
Yolanda: “Now, who is this Faye, and more importantly, why is she not minding her own business? I am not certain why she wanted to put herself into the line of fire with Brandi and Adrienne. This matter is so not her business. I can’t imagine inviting my best friend to a Housewives’ dinner and having her insult my other guests.”
Marisa: “I don’t recall Brandi asking Faye for advice; it seems they don’t even know each other. In fact, I don’t recall Brandi asking anyone for advice on the Adrienne matter. This is an issue between Adrienne and Brandi and should remain between them.” (TT note: This is Marisa’s first blog. She seems sane, and non-confrontational. That can’t possibly last, can it?)
Brandi: “Kyle brought her pit bull-slash-puppet Faye “Rancid” in to attack me about events and things she had nothing to do with and wasn’t even present for. It was very obvious she was fighting someone else’s fight for the simple need for attention, which has been very clear since 1994.”
Both Taylor and Camille are riding the fence in this situation. In fact, their comments are nearly identical as they refuse to take a side publicly.
Taylor: “Faye has known Adrienne for a long time and is not afraid to speak her mind. She has seen Brandi’s tendencies to gossip and attack. She saw how hurt Kim and her children were last year, she saw her attack me out of the blue at the reunion and she is close enough to us all to see how much pain she has caused. Faye is entitled to her opinions, just as Brandi is.”
Camille: “Faye’s one tough cookie. Brandi is no shrinking violet. Both can handle themselves. Everyone has the right to express their own opinion. Brandi had every right to excuse herself from the table. It was getting very uncomfortable for her.”
