Pretty much all the blogs from the RHOBH ladies this week are about Kim. I don’t understand why, now that we got rid of Yolanda, we can’t get away from constantly discussing other people’s medical issues both real (Kim) and imagined (Yolanda).
This week we had two incredible parties. Harry’s BBQ was lovely. Kyle’s party on the gorgeous Malibu estate looked like so much fun. At least for Rinna, Eileen and Erika. Everyone else seemed to be gossiping and talking about Kim and Kyle.
Eden and Dorit start having a conversation that quickly turned to my sister, Kim, again. In the flashback they show Eden telling Dorit that Kim is not nice and doesn’t care about anyone but herself. She is so hyper focused on Kim it’s ridiculous.
She is totally hyper-focused on Kim. However, Kim has displayed some not nice behavior and self-centered behavior on the show.
You can’t do something for someone (i.e. help them down the stairs) if you’re only doing it to get a certain reaction. Not only is it disingenuous, but you’re setting yourself up for disappointment. She didn’t know what was going through Kim’s mind at that moment. I appreciated Dorit speaking up and saying she wasn’t comfortable with all this talk about Kim. She and PK have both been very nice to Kim from the beginning.
Did Eden try to help Kim down some steps at Kyle’s first party at her house? I’m not following any of this part. When were Dorit and PK kind to Kim? Someone explain this to me.
Eden then moves on to talk to me about Kim. I knew this was coming. This seems to be the theme every time I see her. I wish Eden would give me a chance to get to know her before diving in with all of this. I do believe she is a nice person and coming from a good place, but there is a little thing called “timing” that she hasn’t mastered yet.
I had to laugh about the “Eden Hug.” I had been noticing that for a while, and each time she came toward me I knew it was going to be a loooong one. I half joke that under normal circumstances a hug should last as long as it takes to say, “Nice to see you! How have you been? Thanks for coming!” I mean… I could have made a sandwich AND EATEN it in the time it takes to get a hug from Eden. Obviously that is actually a good quality Eden possesses, but I have teased her about it.
I don’t think uncomfortable hugs are ever a good thing. I’m not sure why Kyle is so accepting of Eden’s behavior. I suppose it must mean they have come to a good place now.
Rinna’s BBQ was very nice and Harry did ALL of the work. Even the flowers! I mean…my husband doesn’t even change a lightbulb.
Harry Hamlin is everything!
Finally the Great Gatsby party…
This it the way I felt watching the show. Thank GOD we are finally at the big fancypants party where we can see all the pretty costumes and rich folks milling about and talking about whatever rich people talk about at fancy parties. Then I realized it was going to be more drama about Kim. If I feel this way, just watching the show, I can’t imagine what it must be like to be Kyle. She’s thrown this outrageously gorgeous event, and once again, the focus is on Kim. That must be annoying.
Eden and PK rode with us and some of our friends. Dorit lets me know that Eden said I enable Kim. I know Lisa Rinna said that before, so is that why Eden said that? Nobody who has uttered the word “enabler ” has ever witnessed any enabling. I resent having to defend myself against something so far from the truth. I’m not allowing it to ruin my night though. I’ve been so excited about this party that I’m basically letting it go in one ear and out the other.
I don’t think Kyle is an enabler. I think she is a sister and as such often has to publicly defend Kim to OTHERS. Enabling is about the relationship between Kim and Kyle which we will never get an accurate accounting of on the “reality” show.
I was starting to relax and enjoy myself when Eden approached Kim and me. I took a deep breath and braced myself. I cut Eden some slack, because I can’t imagine what she went through losing her sister. I know she will always carry that with her. In projecting her feelings, she keeps digging up things from Kim’s past.
I am glad that Kyle sees that Eden is projecting her sister issues on to Kim and Kyle. That’s a start. I do think all the letting it go in one ear and out the other and cutting Eden some slack …um… enables Eden to keep it up. I was glad to see her finally put her foot down a bit at her party.
And while I also feel judged regarding Kim, I try not to let it bother me too much, because I know the truth. I don’t feel the need to share the truth with people that I don’t know. People will have their opinions no matter what.
Yes we will. And mine is that Eden has no business taking anyone else’s inventory when there is so much of her own stuff she needs to inventory.
So what is more annoying? Last season’s Yolanda drama, or Kim taking over the conversations this season?
