My Side….By Kim
Let me first start off by apologizing for the delay in my blogs. It has taken me some time to come to grips with certain events that have unfolded on the show. One event in particular is the situation that occurred on Game Night at Pam’s. aka Dana’s (haha) That night was the first time I had ever met Brandi. For someone who doesn’t know me personally to outright accuse me of using crystal meth leaves me bewildered. Not only did she accuse me of using crystal meth, she accused me of using crystal meth on national television. Drug abuse isn’t something you just throw around as a jab. When Brandi uttered those words on camera, the only thing I could think of was “where the hell did that come from?”
I told the others that night, that I had just left my doctors for treatment of my anxiety and panic disorder. I have suffered from this for many years. . They knew he had given me medication for it. I found myself groggy , as this was a medication I had never taken before. That is why I was carrying my coffee with me. I should have gone home to lay down. Instead I went to shoot RHOBH. My doctors have been trying to determine which medication is right for me.
I’ll be the first to admit that I have struggled in the past with certain vices; but I have never in my life, EVER, used crystal meth. I have discussed openly my issues with alcohol. As many of you know, sobriety is a lifetime process, a process that is a priority in my life right now. I am grateful for the love and support of my children, family and dear friends,
By Brandi throwing out that accusation, it not only hurt me and my reputation, but hurt my children. Brandi was so concerned saying “don’t talk about my children” But did she think for one moment about MY children when she carelessly threw those words out.? My kids have been devastated by her cruel words. My children and their friends and families watch this show as well. I know I was no angel that night. I am embarrassed that I fed into the negativity. I didn’t like the way I acted and that is not my character. When I said “ I don’t want her on my team” I was just joking with my sister. We have our own sibling banter and we get each other’s jokes. That’s my humor. It’s my fault for not making it obvious to Brandy that I was joking and for that I apologize. I can say that I am not embarrassed or apologetic for coming to my sister’s defense. I love my sister with all my heart no matter what ups and downs we go through. She always has my back and I will forever have hers.
With that being said, I am not going to dwell on this incident because it is not true. My family and friends know the truth. That is what matters to me. Thank you to all of you who sent me messages of support and love. Always, Kim
