Kim Richards

In her inagural blog, Kim Richards defends her and Kyle's relationship.

on Nov 18, 20100

Hi, everyone. First, I want to apologize for not blogging until now, I'm getting familiar with the computer as we go, but your kind comments and thousands of tweets were very encouraging, and I'm looking forward to sharing my thoughts with you each week. I'm so glad to log on and see that the show and all the support that it has and that I make people happy. Like the other ladies have said, seeing everything unfold on-screen has been difficult, and this episode is especially, hard to watch and very emotional for me.

Before I get into the whole Kyle and Camille situation, I just want to talk about my jewelry line and the bracelets I gave out New York City. No they didn't come with an apology, they were never intended for that. I'm really very passionate about the jewelry, and this means a lot to me. This line has been something I've been working on since 2002 when my mother passed away. Taylor's comments really hurt me because the bracelets had nothing to do with the confrontation the night before. I wanted my sister to be one of the first to have one, and figured it would be nice to give the girls on the trip one as well, in honor of my mother’s birthday, which was the day we had been traveling. I didn't want to give them out on the plane because they are so important to, and it just happened that the fight overshadowed how they were intended.

Before the trip, I really had no idea what was coming. I hadn't talked to the girls since Vegas, so when I sat down next to Taylor, I was surprised to hear that this was still an issue. I was honestly confused about the situation. I hadn’t been in the loop.

When we arrived in New York at the hotel Camille was very gracious and greeted us, and brought us up to the suite and gave us t-shirts. And I was completely under the impression that everything was going to be fine. And to top it off Kyle and Camille having their moment, seemed to confirm that everything was going to be ok. It was one in the morning and we were all tired from traveling, so I was surprised when everybody wanted to go to eat.  

At this you point, you all know that Kyle and I -- we are very different. Whereas Kyle reacts, I don't like confrontation and withdraw. I didn't want to get involved. These are Kyle friend's and I'm getting to know them. When everyone was there pointing the finger at me, and saying, "Kim, settle this," I didn't know what to say. In those moments of confrontation, I don't know where to start, so I usually don't. When Kyle gets emotional, I always tell her: "Don't go there. Stay in your place. Stay in your moment. Stay Kyle." I don't want her emotions to get the best of her. But, Kyle is my sister. We don't always get along. We fight. But, she's mine, and I love her. And I always will have her back.

I also want to send my condolences to Adrienne and her family. That was obviously difficult for them, and my heart goes out to her.

It's been so odd to have this all play out again on TV, as Kyle and I continue to try to work through our differences. But like Kyle said, that's what sisters do.

Kim, Buy a dog and move to Hwaii or Alaska - there are nothing wrong with you...and do not go to rehab cause the family want it.......... Go so far you can from the people that treats you as a child - Spend the next year with your own compay - go for walks in the beach wiith the dog and forget abut evil sisters. Take one day at a time. Good Luck. Li dreamerbox@comhem.se

Kim, I have ben an avid fan of yours all of my life. I see and understand a lot of why you are more laid back and less anxious always be right in front of the camera and at every single event the ladies attend. You girl..have been behind the camera since you were a bababy and starting so very young obviously, you had to grow up fast and make some decisions that we can only fathom, and a child being the primary breadwinner of her family must have been very confusing once your were old enough to relaize exactly what was going on. You were such a fantastic and beautiful young actress with loads of talent and charm. You had it going on for so long, for what 20 or more years and by then anyone would want to put the brakes on and make an attempt at at least some kind of normal life...without paparazzi following your every move. And I won't go there but just briefly, but you weren't alone in having to support your family with your earnings as a star/actress...that had to have been difficult and at the same time hard if not impossible not to do. You had a heart, Hey, at least you didn't fire your parents like some kids did. Lol. IMy name is Kim, and btw I'm a Physical Therapist and have been for years, we are also very close to the same age (reason being) I have related to a lot of your movies and sitcoms, I guess I kinda grew up with you, ha. I am. In your corner Kim as a fan and want you to know that I pray for you all the time, that the Lord will bless you and keep you and bring you happiness and success with very little. Drama, and I know the show does not make that very easy. We, as your fans would love to see you happy and content with your career and life and want the very best for you. I think deep down you are the strong silent type, and drama is not your style, you're happy go-lucky, have gobs more acting expeerience than anyone else on the show and would just like to enjoy yourself and have a good time. Don't sweat the small stuff Kim and avoid all the negativity that comes your way and just be proud of who you are and where you've been and you'll be fine. Take care Kim...from one Kim to another.. Seize the day!!

Please don't do anything to your beautiful face. Your natural beauty is amazing. Love, love, love the show. It won't be the same without you. You are mature and we love your wonderful family. Your girls are awesome. I wish you would do some blogging and let us know about your spring jewelry collection. Don't let the mean gal beat you down. You are strong and to be admired for what you have contributed to the art of acting.

Love you.

Kim, I watched the interview a while back where you said your sister thinks you should have a nose job, and that you are considering it. I have just one thing to say about that: NO!!!! I love the way you look just as you are. PLEASE don't mess with your beautiful face. You are a natural beauty. Know that. (as Allison Dubois would say, puffing away.)

Kim, please know that you are tops with the viewers and we support you. We are all very angry with your sister and Taylor. We wish Lisa had stayed out of it. We are so happy you have become friends with Adrienne. She is thoughtful and caring. I hope you will be back on the show next season (I hope Kyle and Taylor will not be on the show). If you decide not to come back on Housewives, I hope you will be on another show. You have so many fans and supporters. Please know we care about you.

I have older sister's who feel the right to give me unwanted advice that in some cases is ill informed and cruel. I love my sisters but have decided to resort to email and infrequent visits because of this. I felt beaten down as I wouldn't want to respond in my defense as they would win because I don't have the energy or will to retort. I too HATE conflict and know words spoken can be irreconsiable in the heat of the moment. I deeply love and respect my sisters but refuse to be a punching bag as I am too good at beating them to the punch with what I'd like to change.

Hang in there Kim. I pray your children are behind you. Theresa

Ms. Richards,

I'm a 44 year old mother of five children, one of whom is special needs (cerebral palsy.) I say this to give my comments some context. In very few words, I hope the rest of our family has had their eyes opened to the dynamics between you and your sister. You seem discrete and not the sort of person to complain or ask for help. I think then that it's a good thing that Kyle' s behavior has been "exposed", if it hadn't already. From the grocery store shopping trip to New York to the spa day for your daughter, Kyle has treated you in a hateful way. On the other hand, you have been a gentle soul yet strong at the same time. I find myself being drawn in and wish I could encourage you to not feel bad. Unfortunately, the other women that you are being filmed with, (with the exception of Adrienne) are wrapped in their own self interests. They also seem unskilled at human dynamics and have lost sight of any compassion they might have once had. Sponsoring charities (I'm referring to Taylor) does not negate someones personal accountability. I make it a practice to stay away from people like Taylor. She wouldn't know what to do with a good person like you. She even said she doesn't "get" you (I'm referring to when you invited her to get your nails done.) Even Lisa is losing appeal as she seems not to recognize or make room for her own shortcomings. Lisa has a sharp wit and a gentle voice but I'm affraid that she is lacking depth as well. I don't like saying negative things about people but I feel oddly compelled to extend you my good wishes. Our children really are the only thing that matter, and even then we can only do so much. I wish you so much happiness.

Kim, I have absolutely become obsessed with the show. It is a true roller coaster ride for me. I see all the women being thrown together obviously trying to get along, and not doing a very good job of it at times. To me that is so real. It is what happens in real life, only without all the millions of dollars. Most of us don't have benefit of the deep, deep pockets the ladies have, but we share many of the same problems. I have a situation with my sister, my only sibling, that is painful, rediculous, and challenging. So, I know that sisters get into fights, their emotions go heywire, and then the sea between them grows wider. Who could profess to know what your relationship with Kyle is by just watching the shows, but what seems clear to me is that Taylor is someone to be watchful over. I don't believe her many times when she is asked pointed questions, she wriggles out of a real answer and projects the problem onto someone else. I think you are right in not trusting her and her motives. I only hope that your stress with your relationship with your sister improves and that both of you can find a peaceful end because I really admire Kyle as well. I really do love the show, and hope it continues. It kind of takes away some of the drama of my own life when I see that women like all of you have some of the same problems in their life that I do. Best wishes to you and your family and for a loving future for your life with Kyle and her beautiful and sweet family.

Completely agree with the previous blog, Kyle has to stop attacking her sister and blaming her for her very own inappropriate behavior. She went after Kim and allowed Taylor to as well-SHAME ON YOU KYLE. Camille is insecure but is also dealing with alot. She will be fine though won't be losing her nannys or house manager.

Kim,

You looked absolutely radiant tonight on the show tonight with Andy! You, looked much more healthy and your face looks more attractive being a tiny bit more filled out. You are so kind and nurturing and, unfortunately, have been the target for bullying by your sister and Taylor. They both were totally out of line the several times they went out (full attack) on you. I really felt bad for you when Taylor "slithered" over to you at her own party and started "confronting" you on the NY issue. That was so classless, mean, and totally uncalled for. Taylor really showed her true colors. She is clearly showing the viewers just how phony, mean, and domineering she is. She surely does not represent her "charity" in a good light when she threatens violence when she said that she would take you out and do an "Oklahoma" on you when in NY. When Andy asked her what she meant by that she had the nerve to say that she, "did not know what she meant" when she threatened you. Really??? Taylor tends to try to twist things in her favor but she failed miserably tonight. Best of luck to you, you deserve happiness. You have a large fan following girl! You are honest and well grounded and place value on what is truly important.

Kim, you don't need to tell anyone that you care about your sister. IT'S OBVIOUS. I think the thing that hurts us, the viewers, is having to listen to Kyle talk about how much she cares about you...and then watch her rip you to shreds with such contempt, resentment and hostility. Kyle's TALK is cheap and worthless. I know you love your sisters, and having sisters is important to you, unfortunately, a lot of the heartache, emotional baggage, stress and self doubt that you carry on your shoulders is BECAUSE of Kyle. If you really do have a drinking problem... she is more than likely the root of it. You are a good person and we viewers SEE IT in all the episodes. There is only ONE solution to the situation between you and Kyle; If she cannot treat you with respect and dignity, then she doesn't belong in your life... sister or not. If she really wants to be a positive influence in your life, she'll straighten up, and if she doesn't, she will continue to make you carry her baggage for the rest of your life. Remember this... if she is no longer in your life... it's HER LOSS not yours, because SHE would lose a GENUINELY CARING sister NOT you. She would have to be responsible for her own baggage... and the weight of carrying it you would lifted off of your shoulders. I'll bet you ANYTHING that Kyle can't do anything for you without bragging all over town that she did it. Ask yourself the question, does she do anything because she's genuine, or does she do it to boost her own ego in the court of public opinion? I'll bet no one in town knows what you do for her... that's because you do everything out of genuineness.

Kim I think you have been treated badly especially from your sister. Every chance she has had to talk about you it has all been negative! I think your a wonderful person and should make friends with Camille or anyone else you want to because no matter what you do your sister will complain about it! I think the guy Lisa is setting your up with is a good match for you GIVE him a chance even if its only to make your sister jealous! Believe me she doesn't have your best interest at heart and if she owes you money you should get someone on your side to sort it out once and for all! We love you and want you to do well!!

Kim, YOUR IN THE RIGHT...Taylor is wrong! Finally Bravo aired the airport scene where Taylor is the one that says Camille is insecure! Also, Lisa told Taylor to set things straight, so Empty Headed Taylor attacks you at her boring birthday party, where her prozac goofy husband, Russell can't even say anything nice about her during his weird toast, and she comes over and attacks you AGAIN...she's the youngest and fakest looking of the entire bunch by the way. I have five sisters and not ONE of them would tell the world my $ problems, my emotional situation or what a drain I am to their lives because I have needs...your sisters loves you...but she's a jerk! Kim...get off TV you don't need this drama...go live happily ever after (and Camille is so fake, its easy to see why Kelsy left her)

After watching all the episodes, finale, and previews for the reunion, I reread all the blogs. In hindsight, it is obvious that you Kim are a very kind forgiving soul. Rather than talk badly about Kyle and Taylor, as they deserve, you were always positive in your blogs. I don't see you making excuses but just moving on. You have always had your sister's back in these blogs and never once nailed her like Kyle's has been nailing you and making excuses for her own inexcusable cruel and violent outbursts. You clearly try to leave the drama behind but the other ladies (Taylor and Kyle) just wouldn't let it alone. Everything is as we see it and Kyle should not blame a backstory and editing - just like Camille cannot blame her backstory and editing on her poor portrayal. Kyle is an angry bully to Kim and Camille is insecure and defensive/offensive while Taylor is a manipulative liar who can't be trusted. Good luck to you Kim - I'm sorry that you had to suffer from the fallout of these women's inability to let go of the drama.

Kim, I've followed your career over the years. You are beautiful, talented, and worthy of love and admiration. I'm not sure you truly believe in yourself, though. I hope you do; you are a great person, woman, and mother. Before worrying about all the world and your sister, please take time to help yourself with whatever is going on. Give yourself a chance to bloom. I, for one, would love to see you back on TV in a series. You have so much to offer!

Kim, I hope you read this... if you wish to respond, please do.... I too have a sister that has always seemed to have the girl friends that I don't seem to have, has always seemed to be be so "girly" with the make-up, fashion, working out, tanning, and the hair with low-lights/hairlights, etc.... I never have seemed to connect with all of that stuff or with her sometimes because of it....this, to me (since we never know what is really going on), seems to be the case with you and Kyle.... When I was younger, my sister really seemed to almost bully me into what she wanted or thought because I didn't like confrontation and never seemed to handle it well... but once I decided she was not going to push me around anymore and stood up for myself, she backed off.... so maybe this fight of yours and Kim's is the silver lining to getting things worked out between you two.... if not, remember.... just because people are "family" doesn't always mean that they have to be in your life.... this goes for other "friends" that are not good for you.... My grandma always had a saying, "A hundred years from now you'll never know it!" meaning, in the scheme of things, the small stuff doesn't matter and to focus on what is important --- you and your family! Chin up and show the world you are made of stronger stuff that they think.... Good Luck, Well Wishes, and Take Care of YOU!

I love you Ms. Kimmy. Sincerely. I get you because you remind me so much of myself years ago, when I went through great pain with my own sisters because they misunderstood my intentions and personality. Just be yourself and Stay REAL, beautiful and sweet. It's a shame your sister does not realize what a GREAT sister she has, Pity; her loss. The SMART and perceptive viewers GET IT. No matter how many defamatory, nasty labels your sister (or any other castmate or viewer, for that matter) tries to put on you, you will always come out the champ. Know why? Because you don't stoop to that vile and hateful level. (Kyle, please take notes from your big sis and learn to shut it more). Take care ladies.

kim I have always a been a fan of your. After i saw tuff turf i thought you were so beautiful but always exuded that sweetness and gentle heart that is rare. my husband and some friends saw you and kyle walking on rodeo drive one day. We asked you for an autograph you were shopping but you stopped came out of the store and couldnt have been any kinder and more gracious you even attemtped to take the attention of yourself by introducing kyle and telling us she was an actress also but im sorry to say we didnt have a clue but we didnt want tobe rude . That told me how much you loved your sister i toldmy husband later. She is so sweet she took the attention of herself so her sister wouldnt feel ignored. How sad that now Kyle has a bit of attention and not only does she appear to not want to share with you she is so cruel to you on national tv. i think being a kind person that doesnt like conflict you need to learn hhow to be firm and defendyourself without overdoing it. Im the same as you im nice but wheni finally cant stand it its not pretty its as if we dont have a middle ground so i really hope you get therapy not because i think your crazy but because after al those years of taking care of yor family and missing so much and the way kyle treats you she tells you your crazy every chance she gets i think the therapy will help you deal with all the cruelty thatis thrown your way i really wish you the best and will pray you wil always be okay. susana r.

how can you said that Kim needs to growup when since childhood she provide for her family? Kyle was fortunate to marry and have what seems to be a good husband, but I dont think she has grown up at all she relies to much on her husband

Kim, you need to have closure. No matter what you sacrificed as a "child star," you are now a women and a mom. Most importantly, no one owes you anything. You need to deal with those issues and be able to foster your own sense of self and happiness.

It is clear Kyle loves you. But she is in a very compromising position trying to help you in a way that is beyond her scope as a sister.

You really need to get healthy and happy on your own. That would be showing your family, your kids and Kyle you truly love them.

Lastly, Taylor does not have much substance. I don't think she is particularly good for "the Psyche." But you can only choose who you socialize with.

Kyle has to make her own choices. But I think that you getting better would help Kyle recognize she does not need to nuture you...... nor Taylor. Kyle needs to reserve all that energy for her kids and to be a great wife.

If I were you, I would just stay away from Taylor. She not only hurt you, but she hurt Camille, and she puts her husband down all the time. But I would not get into that, just stay away from people who make you feel bad....your goal is to feel good.

Whew!!!!! That last episode was painful; it reminded me of something....oh yes, "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane" !!!!!!!!! I think you and Kyle should do a remake with you as Joan Crawford and Kyle as Betty Davis; perhaps Camille's production company could pull this off. This would be an excellent project for all of you talented women.

Kim, How do I start this? First I don't regularly watch the show. I'm not one for spoiled primmadonas, but when I watch it, you always look as if you feel out of place. Maybe it's because you are.... you seem more grounded than the others more focused on family than all of the bling and crap. It's almost as if the show and life style depicted in it are so far below you. Why do I say that because you look as if you'd be happier at home on a ranch living life in a slower lane of traffic. Just remember the #1 priority is taking care of your self, because if you can't do that you can't take care of anybody else. Your kids need you more than that life style portrayed in that show does!!!!

A fan,

Kim, you really need to look at yourself in the mirror and see how pitiful you make yourself look when you continually powt about how bad your life has been since you gave up acting to be with your kids. I made that decision to be with my kids too, but I didn't whine about it when they got older like I later regretted what I had done! Pick up your chin and walk those 3 inch heals down the street with pride. You have beautiful children and you did a damn good job bringing them up! That is what you set out to do, and damn it you did it and you did it well! Now it's your turn to be in the spotlight again. Go get yourself a man and have a party!

I like Kyle as a strong woman but I think she is abusive and a big bully to her sister. I can not believe that every time something happens it ends up your fault. I think she has always been jealous of you and now that she is married and has a husband she takes every opportunity to make you feel bad. You choose your friends, not your family and I don't think she is your friend at all. I am sorry. I have 2 sisters and one I love her, she is my sister, but I don't respect her. I think you are better off not hanging around Kyle. She is not a nice person. At least to you. She is to the other women but not to her sister.

Hi Kim, I am so glad that you bring "real" balance to the show. My favorites are you, Lisa, and Adrienne. You are all so different but real and your own person. You all are strong, fun, and beautiful women. I'm so glad that Lisa pointed out to Kyle that Taylor may have had something to stir up trouble between you and your sister, Kyle. Kyle appears to be a lovely woman when around her family, but so fake when with her friends. She treats you like dirt and at some point you have to stand up to Taylor and Kyle. Taylor and Kyle are used to "bullying" people and getting away with it. Too bad you, Lisa, and Adrienne can't be better friends. You are all "straight shooters" and would get along much better with out the drama queens, Taylor, Kyle and Camille. Taylor you are correct and letting Martin chase you! Stay strong and lovely!

"What a horrible thing to say! This cast don't want you, especially your sister, she will continue to throw you to the wolves." Way to go make Kim feel like she's an outcast! This is simply not true. Kyle was obviously upset, as any sister would have been...sisters get annoyed with each other. These are obvoulsly very different people...who deal differently in a confrontational situation.. Kyle will defend herself, and would expect her family to as well. However Kim, when confronted retreats or panics. Not not saying either one of them is wrong but they really didn't do anything to hep the situation...but that doesn't mean they love each other any less and can't get through this. It certainly doesn't mean Kyle is jealous! That is ridiculous!

JoAnna, bravo!!!! Kim honey but your foot down or in someone's bottoms. Do not ever let anyone miss treat you they way your sister does. Blood is thicker than water, however Kyle is treating you like she needs to treat Camille. Stand Up for your self, do not sit down, do not shy away open your mouth. You and Kyle need to have a on one. But jealouse is ugly and Kyle is to wrapped up in herself to see that she treats you like crap and hug and kiss on someone that belittles her every chance she gets. You are a jewel remember that Sweet Kim.

Sweet Kim, why do you continue to allow Kyle to humilate you and push you to the curve? How easily it is for her to cast you out over someone else. She yells at you, when she feels you don't have back her up. but in reality she does not have your back, she throws you to the wolves. I could not believe she went against you for Taylor twice and sent you home by yourself and ignored your phone calls,that's not a sister. Kyle is cruel, always belittles you and makes you out to be stupid on tv for the world to see. I believe she is very jealouse of you and has been for years. She is now feeling powerful over you and needs to humilate you on live tv. I hope they let you have new friends that will have your back, because this bunch don't want you, especially your sister, she will continue to throw you to the wolves.

Kim, you deserve some happiness of your own! I think it's great that you have devoted so much of your life to your children. But now it's time for you to find love. When Kyle commented that you have difficulty finding the right type of guy, I immediately thought you could benefit from reading "If Your Parents Divorced, Will You Too?" by Sharon Brooks. It helped me make a better choice of spouse after my first marriage failed. And since divorce is passed down from generation to generation, you'll want your kids to read it, too. You can break the cycle of divorce and you deserve a loving, happy relationship. I wish you the very best!

Kim, you are my favorite housewife. I was watching the episodes and the audience was left to wonder what on earth REALLY was said by Camille and Kyle and who was really right. It wasn't until Kyle was upset with you for not 'standing up' for her against Camille that you let it slip what really was said. You said Kyle said, "So Kelsey isn't going??" And you are correct, this is the comment that Camille must have misconstrued to feel inconsequential. And frankly, I can understand why Camille may have felt that way. Thank you for being upfront and telling us that. So now I think Kyle might owe Camille an apology because even though she might not have intended it might easily be interpreted to mean Camille was the inconsequential one in that couple. Kim you seem like a genuine kind person. Kyle looks like a hot head. I, too, wouldn't want to get involved in defending her. And why on earth should you defend her when she didn't defend you when your daughter wanted to go to Florida? Stay as you are Kim. I think everyone sees that you're the real deal.

Hey Kim,

How was your blind date with Martin? I really don't have anything in common with the rich opulent and phoney sides of RHWBH but I continue to watch mainly because of you. You're a real down to earth lady. You're a square peg not fitting inside that small circle and why would you want to? You seem like a beautiful person inside and out --not superfical. I think that's why people love you so much. Many can relate to you being a single mother sacrificing having a man in your life while focusing on being the best parent you can be to your children. I went through the same thing. When I divorced I put all my energy in raising my children. Now that they're older and moving on with their lives, I now have a lovely man in my life and is making time for me. By the way, could you share with us where you disappeared off to while having dinner with Martin? The viewers can't tell how long you were gone but the housewives made it seem like you were gone for an ample amount of time. I wish you all the blessings in finding your perfect soul mate. Stay as you are. You deserve the best.

Hang in there and trust in yourself. You are a good person, sister and mother. It shows in all you do. Just keep thinking positive about yourself and you will find the happiness you need and deserve! I am glad you are on the show and I hope you continue. Stand up for yourself and keep on keeping on!

Kim, you are one of my favorites on the show. I have to agree with Lisa, I think a differnt dress maybe something more elegant would have been a better choice for the occassion. But I hope your date worked out, I thought you both were a good couple. I look forward to many more shows, very entertaining.

I just loved that you gave each of the ladies a beautiful bracelet from your collection. It was very emotional as it was on your Mom's birthday. What a lovely thing to do. I'm not sure why Taylor doesn't trust a person's actions. It must be some extreme insecurity, which a lot of us know can make us misunderstand things. The same could be said for Camille, although I'm not sure about who she is at all. I do love you and your sister and love to watch the two of you together. I can see how much you both care about each other and you also both have gorgeous, wonderful children. No need at all to defend your relationship with your sister, it seems like a pretty good one to me. You're both blessed to have each other and it's apparent that you both know that!

You are so sweet! I love that about you. It seems that you've been diminished by others and it affects your confidence. Your sister for whatever reason keeps judging you. A life coach would do wonderful things for you. Tell your sister how much it hurts you everytime she takes a jab at you and start saying "STOP" to her and walk away.
