My sister also was an alcoholic at a young age. Over the years watching her hurt our family I held so much anger toward her, but always hoping she would change, especially for her kids. My sister started her issues at age 15 and it's been rough. She would at times take anxiety meds to help her as well, then drink because reality would hit her and she would feel bad for hurting people, it was a viscious cycle just as your sister, Kim said. Unfortunately, my sister died this past July and it's been very hard. We never got to a place where you and Kim are now and I still feel so much guilt for being so angry with her, but it's only because I loved her so much. My sister and I are 17 months apart, so we were always very close. I found it very hard to watch you and your sister without a box a Kleenex next to me because it was like watching my sister and I. I wish the best for your sister, Kim and for both of your relationships in the future to move forward. I only wish I had that. My sister's birthday is coming up in March, she would have been 40. She had 4 beautiful kids, a loving man in her life, parents and family members who never left her side and was always there, but simply not enough in the end. I pray for you both to mend and to build a better future, I only wish I had this same turn-out. Let people talk, but I am like you. If I hear anything I strike back. I have found over the years it is easy for people to make comments and judgements that have never been through this first hand, so they know nothing! Keep strong!

But I will say that I really like Kim and I think that her behavior and substance abuse come from deep seeded issues that probably have to do with her family, as well as being a child star. Kyle on the other hand is just evil and jealous. Did she ever achieve child stardom? If so, I don't remember her. Maybe that's why she always breaks out in the splits or swings her ponytail around in the middle of a party to get attention...."I'm ready for my close up Mr. Demille"! Sit down silly rabbit!!

She rattle off a list of percriptive drugs she was on to Richard on the show. He told her right there that was a lethal combo. Pain killers will surface, they always do. it was more than alcohol.

Her behavior did not appear to be "drunken" behavior as it did her being scatterbrained, sluring and sloppy rather than erratic. Also, HELLO! Didn't anyone notice the baggie Kim held up in the car on the way to SUR opening party? She said it isn't my trash and clearly the camera was not showing what was wrapped in the trash in her hand. That baggie clearly was cut small and I'd bet Kim's worth it contained some kind of substance, perhaps Cocaine? I really, really doubt a car would show up to drive them containing trash left over from anyone else.

Seriously? Kyle's narcissism knows no bounds it seems! Kyle should seek help so that she can someday think of others before herself. Those she does happen to think of she does simply because they themselves or what they do will have impact on her life. She's the type that when say Kim's packing to move, Kyle's first thought is not 'what can I do to help her' but instead it's "OMG how selfish of her to move this weekend when she must know that I need her here to help my set up for my party'.... ‘I had a lot of pain built up …’, Kyle??

Brandi was attacked, all because she asked Kyle what was wrong with her sister and why she spent so much time in the bathroom. Kyle and Kim's behavior was totally wrong and uncalled for, with Kim acting like a spoiled brat and holding a grudge all season...even after Brandi tried to apologize to Kim! I"m sorry, but these sisters are just "mean" girls....literally! I hope that both Kyle and Kim apologized to Brandi for their behavior in the game night episode.

Hell, I'd be smoking and drinking too if I had to deal with that. I think that having someone like Kyle for a sister could drive anyone off the deep end.

And I still can't fathom how Kyle could out her sister on a TV show. It should have been done privately. I find Kyle to be a mean spirited person, from what we see on the show. Not a fan.
