Think it's the limo fight? Guess again.

Kyle and Kim Richards of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
If Kyle Richards was granted one RHOBH do-over, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star says it wouldn't be the infamous limo brawl with her sister. No, Kyle says her smackdown with Brandi Glanville at Dana Wilkey's Game Night tops her "Why'd I Do That?" list.

"Most people would think it would be [the argument] in the back of the limo with my sister, which was very painful, but that was what I was feeling, and even though people didn't understand or get that…I had to own that," the new author of Life is Not a Reality Show explains to The Huffington Post. "But Game Night just wasn't me and it wasn't true to myself, so I was very upset about that."

Fortunately – like her friendship with Brandi – Kyle and Kim are dancing to a better beat these days. "She's doing really well. We're all really proud of her," Mrs. Mauricio adds about her sis. "[Having] our relationship being played out on TV is difficult; people dissecting it and thinking they know us is very difficult at times. We've gone through a lot together. Some of our reactions are to things we've gone through together, but people haven't seen them. I'm happy to say we're in a much better place right now."

Kyle,

You shouldn't have any regrets your just being protective and that is great! I would do the same for my sister!

I think Kyle, just wants Kim to be more like her in many ways and is disappointed when things with Kim, don't work out especially in front of all of Kyle's friends. In all honesty sometimes being a sister also we can't fix them. They have the super glue and it is up to them to use it. We as sisters pick up the pieces but we have trouble putting things back together if they don't help. Your a wonderful sister Kyle and Kim is fortunate to have you..Good Luck and God Bless you both!

At times Kim appears to be a reluctant participant in the whole RHOBH scene. Perhaps the drama created by Kyle regarding Kim's 'medicated' behaviour is Kyle's way of keeping Kim relevant on the show and in the income ($$) stream as well. Controversy creates interest and interest = ratings.... right, Bravo?

Kyle needs to find something better to do with her time, it seems like all she cares about is what Kim is doing wrong you are not her mother and Kim is an adult. It seems as though Kyle just wants to be the center of attention and that is why she is always creating so much drama, almost as if you are jealous of Kim, its really weird. If you were truly concerned and cared about your sisters well being then you would handle things OFF camera, I think you do things to hurt Kim and then try to cover it up with the "I'm concerned". I think you are causing more pain and trouble for Kim then helping and I think you are happy she is in the place shes at cause it makes you look like the good sister. Kim has a way better personality than you she is sure of herself and is free spirited when she is sober and you seem to have to work hard to prove that your a certain way and I think that's were the jealousy comes in. Be there for Kim and quit lying to yourself about the real reason you feel to bash your sister

first of all, i can't believe most are on Kyle's side! Yes, I like her and her family but what she is doing to her sister is crazy. She instigates everything. To say she is not sorry for the limo is downright nuts. Yes, we all may not live their lives or know everything that happens when not filming but, maybe Kim does have some issues, personal ones that Kyle should have never outed. That doesn't make Kim to be some addict. If the only thing we see is her being late and not showing up to things, SO WHAT!! The girls have way much much more problems to be focused on Kim. Kyle does stuff that she has no right to be like her mother. I get she wants to protect her but you don't hear Kathy chiming in. Maybe the times where she appears loopy is from her medications which also may make her late to things.

I completely understand and sympathize with Kyle. Maintaining a relationship with an addict is never easy, especially when your loved one isn't ready to be helped. I've been in her shoes. It's extremely frustrating and emotionally draining. Everyone snaps. Best advice is talk to a therapist...or Brandi. Seriously. She knows what she's talking about and may offer comic relief. Also, Courage to Change is a great book for families and friends of addicts. All the best to you, Kim, and your families!

I totally agree with you, Georgia Peach, about Kyle, but that said I could not imagine the show without Kyle, or any of the other ladies... excluding Kim! Please take her away!

Kile is the strong and caring sister, but she should allow Kim to suffer the consequences of her choices ( bad ). Kile has a beautiful family, wonderful friends ( the other housewives), she is mentally stable and she is one of these persons that come to this life to bring joy to others. Keep it up Kile !!!! Congratulations on your book. I just bought it !!!

Is there an episode that Kyle doesn't cry?

Hmmm--that wasn't Kyle at Dana's, you say (or she says). Well, who was the Kyle look-a-like at Adrienne's barbecue or Brandi's wine tasting? Or perhaps during Camille's award banquet or the very first time she met Brandi during her fundraiser? Surely one of those long haired, mean-spirited women was Kyle.

I suspect she is merely responding to fan reaction. Hopefully the real Kyle were show up for Season 3.
