As you are well aware, “friend” of Kyle Richards and “producer-appointed” troublemaker, Faye Resnick’s BravoBlog was mysteriously deleted from BravoTV.com last week.
WHY is Faye is the “Producer-appointed” troublemaker this season on the RHOBH? Someone had to start the chaos during Kyle’s dinner party and take the heat… and it certainly was not going to be one of the regular cast! So, who gets the “troublemaker” label this season (so far)? It’s Kyle’s “friend,” Faye! Lucky her!! If you recall, last season the chaos-creator was Alison DuBois…
In contrast to Alison DuBois, Faye Resnick has been a long-time friend of Kyle Richards. Kyle has described Faye, ironically at Camille’s dinner party from hell, as her “sister.”
NOTE: What happened to Alison DuBois? Camille Grammer was recently asked about Alison in an interview. Camille stated that she has not spoken or had contact with Alison DuBois for over a year.
Back to Kyle…
Therefore, would suggest you take a look at how others are reacting to Kyle’s main statement that “Faye is NOT her mouthpiece” before Kyle’s blog is also removed or edited.
The following is a sample of comments not yet deleted/removed/edited by Bravo:
So you didn’t want to un-invite Brandi because according to you and your husband, that is not a classy thing to do. What kind of class does it take then to allow a guest in your home to be berated by another guest? Why did you not change the subject immediately? How can you even defend this dinner party behavior and call it “awkward”? You need to take a better look at yourself.
Kyle, Kyle, Kyle, You expressed shock and disgust at the way Alison Dubois attacked you at the dinner party from hell and you and Faye (and yes she IS your mouthpiece!) do the same thing to Brandi. You allowed one of your guest to be treated rather shabbily by another guest and you inserted yourself into the conversation with a pre-conceived notion that Brandi should apologize to Adrienne. Once again you could not let the situation remain between Brandi and Adrienne…Two words for you (and your mouthpiece Faye…) BUTT OUT!!
I don’t understand. If the issue were so private, why would you blab it to Faye Resnick of all people. Most of your target audience remembers who and what Faye is from 1994! This franchise is the only Housewives I can stomach. I have stopped watching the others. I think this will be my last episode of yours also.
Kyle… you are so in denial. I am sorry but viewers are not going to believe that you didn’t purposefully bring Faye in to simply attack Brandi and say what you truly want to say yourself. If you knew that Faye doesn’t like Brandi then why did you invite her knowing Brandi was going to be there. As a hostess it was your job to quiet Faye and make certain Brandi felt comfortable.
You say that this has entered into all your lives, but you know actually it doesn’t have to. Everyone simply needs to keep their opinions to themselves and their mouths shut… just be a friend to each without talking about each one to the other.
If you really want this issue to die down…. all of you need to just back out of it!
Let me get this straight…your biggest problem with what happened at your husbands event is that Brandi stood up for herself and not that two rich people attacked her? Your husband, who for some reason everyone thinks can do no wrong, did nothing to put a stop to it. I think everyone likes him because that is what salesmen do…they make you like them so you buy from them. You may not need a mouth piece, but you have one in Faye. Lisa was stating the truth. Two people tried to defend Brandi and they were both basically told to shut up. How can you invite someone into your home and then let them be attacked and not say anything? You should’ve put a stop to it like you did at the cocktail party. Oh, but wait, since there wasn’t potential clients around, why would you? You admit that Faye takes your side in every fight, then you load her up with ammo and point her in Brandis direction. It’s okay for Faye to defend you, but Lisa isn’t allowed to speak up for Brandi. The only reason these arguments spill over into everyone else’s lives is because you can’t keep your mouth shut.
It amazes me how you all seem to forget how horrible Brandi have been treated… Last year you and your sister bullied Brandi, simple as that, and Brandi was defending herself. And Faye… She is plain rude and out of order. As well as she clearly need to look a bit more into the details. Let’s stop the excuses and see things as simple and clear as they are.
I normally would not send a response to last night’s show, but Kyle has turned into a mean girl. She used to be one of my favorite housewives, but it seems that fame has gone to her head. Regardless of what Kyle thinks about Brandi, she should have told Faye to shut her mouth and leave Brandi alone. Faye may be her BFF, but she is a BULLY!!! Now that Faye has gotten her 15 minutes of fame, she needs to go away. The issue is between Brandi and Adrienne. Kyle needs to stay out of it and quit fueling the fire.
Don’t you love how Faye and Mauricio seem to have selective memory regarding Kyle’s interaction with Brandi last year? They’re acting as if Kyle was this sweet, loving, welcoming woman who was beaten up by Brandi for no reason. Did they watch the same show that we all did last year? Kyle started snarking at Brandi from the beginning.
Faye & Mauricio aren’t you’re mouthpieces? Girl — if you’re explaining, you’re losing.
Also, lay off the bath salts; it was crystal clear that you set Brandi up at the dinner party to be berated by Faye — just like you did to Camille season 1. Really, you shouldn’t use the *exact* same tactic 2 times & expect people to fall for the “Faye isn’t my mouthpiece! I can’t control what my BFF says by asking her to please change the subject” excuse again.
Finally, I seem to recall Marisa is a very successful real estate agent in her own right on that show “Selling LA” — introducing her to us in terms of her husband (and his grandfather’s) Hollywood “pedigree” is tres tacky.
I don’t find Faye to be a pleasant likeable person, and to write that she does not seem like an intelligent person is a vast understatement . Faye also hears YOUR side of an encounter and behaves as though she was there as an unbiased witness, She has no wisdom, that I can see, which is actually rare, given her advanced age. The funniest part of the show was when you and Mauricio patted yourselves on the back as people who don’t gossip… Huh? Also, you DID once dis-invite someone to your party… Russell… remember that? It was hilarious. However, I appreciate what looks to be a good marriage and family life, although I think a Mercedes to a 16-year-old is not wise at all. Adrienne made this a huge issue (on camera) when she could have just left and tried to get it removed from the show (as she eventually did). I agree Brandi should not have spilled the family secrets, but it’s true, that Adrienne didn’t really need to participate in the whole delivery room story — why make that up? Seriously, she should have not joined the conversation, as Camille did.
If Mauricio hates drama why is he always putting himself front and center in it, and friend of Paul or not he sure showed his true colors by standing by and watching Brandi be attacked. Nice man ya got there. But he is married to the ultimate gossip girl after all so it’s not much of a surprise. So what does the “lovely” Faye think of your behavior and your sisters behavior toward Brandi before her outburst at game night. Let’s see, the very first time you saw Brandi you were cackling and making fun of her, your sister, who still seems off, didn’t even know her but based on your gossip went to game night with a vengeance to attack her. Then you falsely gossip about the night to Lisa and Fadeaway, then can’t wait to do it again after the Adrienne thing. No one ever heard whatever was said about Adrienne, however we all heard what Adrienne said about Brandi. Is that somehow ok to you, Maurice, and Fade? I don’t like your sister either but I don’t blame her for not wanting you involved in her sons birthday, but you couldn’t wait to gossip about that either. Couldn’t you have just said Kim was celebrating her sons birthday and left it at that?
Kyle, I have never been your fan. You’re always on the wrong side of things, or on the right side for the srong reasons. I was surprised to hear Mauricio’s comments on Brandi. Really, in the previews I’d thought for sure they were about your sis! I’m prone to giving you and others the benefit of the doubt. That you stuck with inviting Adrienne and Brandi out of hope. But, guess what? In walks a substitute Adrienne, and all theories are out the window. It is one attack after another. Your sharp as darts glances at the troll made for some entertainment, but otherwise it was horrific. Never mind, Brandi rose above all of you as she upped and left. Your dining table was a butcher’s block. Fey hacking away, gouging out all the rejoicing. Didn’t want to be there. I was waiting for Brandi.
Do you honestly believe the viewers are so foolish as to believe that Faye and Maurice don’t speak for you? We’re not naive. They only hear your side and that’s quite obvious by their comments. For you to allow a woman to be treated like that at your husband’s event and then at your own home…you nor Maurice have any class.
Considering the absolutely awful treatment you received from Alison DuBois at Camille’s dinner party, when Camille sat back and allowed that nasty, vile, rabid dog to attack you, I am truly shocked that you allowed your friend Faye to do EXACTLY the same thing to Brandi. You sat there and didn’t open your mouth while one of your guests..YOUR guest that YOU invited..was verbally attacked. Great job, really, outstanding. I think the reason you invited Faye was because you knew she would do exactly what she did. You cannot expect anyone to believe that you didn’t know Faye was going to attack Brandi like she did. Shame on you, Kyle.
Kyle, as the hostess, you should have spoken up and stopped Faye’s verbal assault on Brandi. It was so uncomfortable to watch that, Faye should have shown more class. This party was one mechanical cigarette away from last year’s circus. On another note though, I loved your glassware and the walls did look spectacular.
Well being that it was your house your dinner party and your good friend you had the ability to stop the interrogation that Faye inflicted on Brandi . Any guest in my house that doesn’t play nice with the others would be asked to go . Any friend of mine would respect my wishes in my house not to start trouble . So that leads me to believe that Faye was being your mouth piece and given your blessing to do so . Your innocent act I am not buying . Even if you didn’t know what Faye was going to do you sure didn’t stop it .
Maybe you don’t consider Faye your “mouth peice” but it was your dinner party and as a “hostess” you should have stepped in to change the subject. You allowed your friend to bully Brandi and Faye was probably saying what was on your mind so you didn’t stop her. You really are a “mean girl”. I know we only get to see bits and pieces of what really goes on but we don’t see how you and Kim have recovered your relationship either. Yes Brandi said something terrible about your sister that night but she was going in and out of the bathroom all night and lets face it, she did have a major problem that required rehab for so if it wasn’t said, she may still be in denial about it. Sometimes it takes being called out on for a person/family to see that there is a problem. Good for Kim that she is now dealing with it.
You should have stepped in when Paul was in Brandi’s face too. Instead you were more concerned that Kim had said something to cause this drama. You knew what Paul and Adrienne were upset about and it looked as though you were just running around saying, “I cant believe this is happening at Mauricios event.” Step in, they are your friends. Ask them to take it outside. I don’t get you. What kind of friend are you. You are jealous of Brandi and Lisa’s friendship. It is easy to see that too.
As for what was said…any man that acts that way towards a woman who was obviously speaking the truth is a man who is caught cheating…simple as that. And since this was a year ago and they are now divorced, did Brandi hit the nail on the head??
Kyle, you are at times harsh and critical of your sister. I don’t know your history; so if you feel subconsciously that it’s necessarry, sic to do so I don’t have to agree with it or like it. And you do have a tendency to be a bit on the “snobbish” side. It’s a quirk of your personality BUT as a whole I think you are kick ass wonderful. Faye is your friend. She said what many probably have wanted to. Should Faye have taken it on to be the one to do so AT your dinner party? Maybe not. She has her own skeletons. One of the reasons I like you is because of Mauricio. And for him to be involved with a small comment is huge. It seems people forget from the get go Brandi was high voltage. Her remarks about Kim, you and anyone else is okay–but for you, Faye….anyone to make a comment about her is not. She cannot have it both ways. And no, you definitely don’t need a mouthpiece. It’s difficult to try and be friends with someone who is at odds with a mutual friend. You cannot take sides–Brandi was wrong to say what she did. People react–and in so pretty ways at times when they are angry or hurt. Brandi continues to spout off, non-filter her words or attitude. And I am so sick of hearing about how Eddie C screwed her over.
Kyle, Shame on you. I have most of the time liked you but last night, C’mon. What were you thinking. You should have shut Faye down immediately, while she may be a loyal friend, and knowing how she felt about Brandi, you should have either NOT invited her to the dinner party or asked her nicely to reel it in if she was coming. You did neither. While Brandi is not your BFF, you should not allowed a guest to be treated that way in front of people who were not involved or knew the whole story. You only have yourself for making it the dinner party from hell this season, so I hope I don’t see you playing the blame game!!! I feel the viewers expect more from you.
WHO is Faye and WHY was she bashing Brandi and telling Brandi how to apologize to Adrienne?? Brandi should have had more sense to change the subject and shut the discussion down, but Kyle, as the hostess, you should not have allowed it (even though we know it was set up by you in the first place). Mauricio was at the time selling Paul and Adrienne’s house for millions and you had your “dream dining room” plans to finance and Mercedes to buy your teenager.
Kyle, you are strong woman and I can not for the life of me figure out why you would let Faye overtake your dinner party. It was sad to watch. I’m not a big Brandi fan but no one deserves to be ambushed by someone when they come to a home expecting a good time. This time I’m disappointed in you for not stopping Faye’s attack and controlling your home. Still love ya though xoxo
Kyle letting Faye bring up the subject at your dinner party and not putting a stop to it when Brandi obviously looked uncomfortable and didn’t want to discuss it with a person she barely knew certainly looks suspect on your part. Also seating Faye right across from Brandi doesn’t help your argument. You let Faye keep going at Brandi and even speak rudely to Marisa when she tried to be the voice of reason. If my best friend attacked a guest at my dinner party like that it would have been shut down the minute she opened her mouth. I can definitely see and support why Kim would want to go to Vegas without you. Also let’s not make Brandi seem like the one that goes around attacking people. I seem to remember you being catty and mean when Brandi first came on the scence. You and Kim being horrible to her at game night and Taylor striking first at the reunion. Stop trying to act innocent and please be honest with yourself because you just come across as a tool!
@megdoll I am so sick of all the set-ups, ambushes and orchestrated BS. Followed by the feigned anger at Kim and other bad acting, “Oh no! No drama at my husband’s event!” Honey, pulease! Mauricio’s event would not have gotten off the cutting room floor if there hadn’t been drama. That’s why no one tried to stop it – not even Brandi’s guy friend. Do they think we viewers are that stupid??
Way to deflect any responsibility or show any added insight AGAIN!
1. Lisa’s comments are fair. And you’ve been a cr*ppy friend to her amidst Adrienne’s allegations, which were defamatory. When did you stick up for Lisa then?
2. Faye has no business attacking a guest she does not know. One, she shows no balance in judgment. BG should not have outed AM with the truth BUT AM is guilty of trying to railroad BG against Lisa. AM and PN’s attacks at the event were far more defamatory and atrocious than anything BG said. Why turn a blind eye? In addition, it was a truly scary confrontation. You all made too many excuses for AM and PN’s scary and defamatory behavior.
3. The meth comment was obviously sarcastic. Also obvious was Kim’s dependency issues. And your’s and Kim’s marginalization and bullying of BG which far transcended BG’s sarcastic comments. Does Faye watch the show? Does she have a different set of standards for how others behave and how her friends behave? I’m starting to think Mauricio does too, because HIS friends AM and PN were out of line -but he is disgusted by Brandi?
4. At least BG owns up to what comes out of her mouth. Your pal AM sics the cook on people she doesn’t like and the father of her children. She is far more insidious in her tactics.
5. Faye continued to remind us that her biggest talent is opportunism.
shanlea Here’s the deal, Brandi retaliated becaue from day one those ladies were laughing at her for no reason – they were being the mean girls. Then at the game party again they did the same thing in her face this time saying they did not want her on their team. I agree with you. Faye needs a life.
Omigod the crystal meth act was so last year, get over it…Kim seems to have, anyways- Kyle, why can’t you just admit you just don’t like Brandi??? I believe you enjoy and like the attention, meaning you like to cause and stir up unnecessary drama towards the people you do not like but act as if you do. Fake/ phony is what best suits (fits) you, just saying.
How can you be surprised by Lisa’s comments? Was everyone to sit there quietly and listen as Faye ragged on at a another guest she admits she doesn’t really know but then continues on with her character assassination? YOU don’t say anything to try to rein in Faye and then you jump on Lisa when she tries to keep things more balanced. BTW, Brandi repeated gossip, but it appears she didn’t invent it. Brandi was tactless in bringing up the topic, but people at the dinner didn’t seem to make comments refuting whatever was said.
@Lilbabyboo…I have seen Faye in several episodes before this and she is very judgemental in every one of them and thinks she knows it all. Surprise, Faye! I don’t care if you’re a hundred years old, you can still learn something new. We keep learning until we die. NO ONE knows it all! I thought Faye needed to go way before this episode and she definitely does now. She is a nasty piece of work!
Knowing how Faye felt about Brandi, it’s hard to believe you weren’t really looking for drama/ratings by inviting them both to your dining room christening.
As you say, they are both very strong-minded women. Interesting that Brandi was the one showing respect for your home and your event by backing down and not taking the bait that was repeatedly thrown at her. Faye clearly was using your party to become part of “the conversation” for this season.
Completely understandable to be curious about the history between Brandi and Adrienne. Completely pot-stirring to ask in the midst of the whole group.
Interesting that you seem offended by Lisa’s “mouthpiece” comment (after we all watched you, the hostess, allow YOUR guest to go after Brandi like a dog with a bone). Do you realize we’ve all watched your interviews, from the very first season and even into reunions, where you say much more spiteful/hateful things than that about Lisa (“maybe she preys on the weak”…..#$%!)? I guess I’m forever waiting for you to recognize that Lisa could do a whole lotta crap to you and STILL not even the score with what you’ve done to her. Lucky for you she’s a better woman than that.
Kyle, you always shift and reframe the argument so you can win. ”What I would have done.” ”What you should have done.” when in actuality you are consistently disloyal, a poop-stirrer, a campaigner of gossip to get everyone on your side so you can gang attack. I love that Brandi said: “I’m not on a team.” She has friends, but doesn’t require them to take a side against others. One on one, she hears good advice. One on one, she resolved with Kim.
You have strong opinions, but do not permit thought, opinions or feelings from others. That’s fine with Taylor. She is a willing sycophant because she wants to be part of the zip-code. But Kim, Brandi, Lisa and it appears–Yolanda and Marissa–actually have integrity. You might listen to them instead of defining them as “wrong” because they don’t agree with you.
Let Kim be Kim.
Let Brandi be Brandi.
Let Lisa be Lisa.
They don’t have to march in constant agreement with your judgment, criticism and unkindness. No wonder Faye is your best friend. You really can’t do better. You really can’t. She is the friend you deserve. You should get matching t-shirts.
When are you going to acknowledge, that, while they were understandably upset…Paul and Adrienne are perhaps the MOST to blame for ruining Mauricio’s event!!!! Kim was discreet, though I agree her timing was ill-conceived…Brandi was sitting at a table minding her own business…THEY were the ones who created the scene! THEY got incredible loud, vicious and up in Brandi’s face! Are you not willing to see that? Or do they get a pass at their incredibly poor behavior management because of who they are and because they are your true friends?? Maybe Mauricio needs to consider that as well…Believe me…I like Mauricio a whole lot…but even though they were outraged…that does not give them license to act outrageously.
have a seat,,,,,
….exactly, what a set up, a handful of women need assigned seating? Funny how Kyle puts nosey Faye who sticks that nose in everyone’s business and can’t mind her own damn business is seated right in the line of fire…..directly across from Brandi! With friends like Vile Kyle……
You’re killing me right now. You could’ve easily told Faye to calm down and not attack Brandi. If Brandi is the friend you say she is, then you shouldn’t let your friends attack EACH other. I’ve had friends who don’t get along. They don’t flip out at a dinner table with one badgering the other about something that doesn’t concern her. Faye is still mad about the issue with her and Brandi because she doesn’t have a spot on the show. Brandi said she didn’t care about Faye and probably moved on to the next subject. Faye is still looking for attention by any means necessary. A “good friend” is someone who will defend you, not someone who will badger YOUR other friends. You asked Brandi why they had beef. She gave you a reason. Don’t ask a question unless you’re ready for the answer. Your sister was dead wrong for bringing that up at a dinner party, but if you hadn’t asked Brandi in front of the entire group in the first place (newsflash: Ask Adrienne..privately…if you wanted to know that bad OR ask Brandi privately) then Brandi would’ve had nothing to spill.
I actually like faye but i do agree she was out of line. the problem is kyle. she is constantly making drama and feeding partial truths to razzle people.
Remember how kyle fed lisa the BS when they were friends to get lisa to rally for her?
kyle needs to stop gossiping in ways that she is taking sides.
I used to really like you.. i think your true colors are now starting to show through! You totally try play the innocent party when you really are the mean girl who stirs the pot!!
Love Lisa & Brandi now.. the only real entertainment on the show now! (also love Camile now too)
You reaaaallllyy hate Brandi, don’t you? I love how you were fuming at Mauricio’s event about how BRANDI was making a scene throwing around F bombs, but you totally overlooked Paul being the aggressor and getting in her face and calling her a b-tch. I like how Kim was the rational one and said “well, that’s how PAUL chose to handle it”.
And Faye is trash. Complete trash. You are the company you keep.
Kyle, next time don’t invite Faye to your dinner parties with the housewives. You knew Faye was going to say something to Brandi which caused Brandi to become uncomfortable continuing the conversation. Why didn’t you say to Faye, “Ok, that’s enough!” Ladies, we are going to change the subject and have a wonderful dinner and some fun.” But you didn’t do that Kyle. Are you truly trying to be a friend to Brandi? You are also taking digs at Lisa. We are closely watching your behavior and attitude towards Lisa because it’s not the same as the first season.
I don’t know Kyle….. I’m beginning to think BRAVO producers may need to start thinking about a replacement for you dear. I will continue to watch the remaining episodes and the reunion to determine if you should stay for the next season. ~G.R.I.T.S.
I have to agree with most of the other people on here- you should have put a stop to Faye attacking Brandi. You had no problem calling out Lisa for defending her yet you let Faye go on and on…… And I’m not even a fan of Brandi- she has no class, no filter and doesn’t know any boundaries, but Faye is no better, actually she’s worse. And it was none of Faye’s business anyways. Shame on you for even bringing it up. You should have done everything possible to avoid talking about it at dinner. Then you sit there scratching your head like you can’t figure out why your dinner party was ruined…… Really? The setting of your beautiful dining room didn’t do anything to cover up all that classless behavior. You could have been at the local dive bar drinking beer wearing jeans and flannel shirts if you were going to allow that kind of behavior. And Taylor- WTH? When Camille called her out she did it to her face and it was TRUE so I don’t even know what she’s talking about……… Anyway, glad Brandi walked away, there’s no other way to handle mean girls.
Kyle, Why arent you taking any responsibility for sharing with Faye whatever was said at that table? Why in the world would you tell someone who is going to spread it like wildfire. As Adriennes so called friend, you should have spoke up at the table, in a polite adult way, and done damage controll. As usual in your quest to make Brandi look bad, you made yourself look worse. I am very happy for your sister, you seem to be the one that triggers her stress and emotions. I believe the reason that you ladies drank alcohol on Kims trip, is because alcohol is not her “real problem” Last year she was not drunk, she was under the influence of something else. She needs to be honest to work through her recovery. I wonder if some of that underlying strong dislike for you, is because you wont let her tell the truth. Just sharing what I see as a viewer.
I agree, you’re not fooling anyone! We all know you have never liked Brandi…we all saw how you were laughing and criticizing her before you even met her just because she was wearing heels while on crutches…you have never liked her period! That dinner was clearly an ambush…your husband needs to REALLY watch the show to see who the gossipy woman really is…move on and leave brandi alone…first you hated camille, now brandi…you are just a jealous person and it shows
