Kyle Richards

Kyle talks about the big shindig, and her special gift from Camille.

on Jan 7, 20110

I was really excited about our annual White Party, mainly because it was Mauricio's 40th. I was happy that all the girls were going to attend. I had called Camille to make sure we were still "ok" and to make her feel better about coming. It's going to take a while before we forget everything that has taken place between us. I knew she had been sick and was happy that she made the effort.

When Camille gave me the book How To Behave And Why I was surprised. I think it was her attempt at a joke mixed with a little dig. That's ok. I can handle it.

I really just want to move on and make peace.

The night was absolutely beautiful and Mauricio had the best time being surrounded by family and friends.

Not everyone had the best time that night. Taylor seemed a bit down and came to me to discuss why Russell left early. I don't really know what to make of their relationship. Russell has always been nice to Mauricio and me, but I do notice that they seem disconnected. I find Taylor to be outgoing, sweet, funny and smart. I'd like to think that Russell also appreciates these qualities in Taylor.

It's hard giving advice to a friend about their marriage. You never know if you’re saying too much or too little. I can only be honest and try to be as supportive as possible.

I hope you all enjoyed tonight's episode.

Until next week.

XO, Kyle

In some of these, I think she looks like your mom (not that I've seen your mom in peorsn just pictures). :) Happy first day of preschool.

Kyle - just watched the lost footage & HAD to make a comment on your blog... when you were putting your little girl down for bed I was absolutely THRILLED to see you climb right into that crib with her when she accidentally woke up... That is a "real" Mommy move & I love that you just hopped right in.... I too, have always put my kiddos down until they are totally asleep & its definitely the more difficult way to go - but worth it in the end... You are a wonderful Mom :) Can't wait for next season...

You had me at New York

My impression of you changed as the season roared on. You had me at New York! And you lost me soon after. Learn to chill out, let things go. Move on, even if you weren't successful at making Camille believe your intent. Frankly, who cares...she's a bit of a loon anyhow - but your desperate need to be heard, understood and believed became very, very, very tiring. If you had gone silent on the subject you would have been so much more believeable. There must be something in your past that makes you engage in arguments with unstable people and actually think your going to get through to them. Please tell me that "Camlle's version" did not consume your daily life the way the show depicted it?

Kyle:Isn't it wonderful that the viewers have your entire life figured out in a few hours of exposure on Tv? Just keep remembering there are some of us that have a similar relationship to our sister,you can fight with them and you sure are ready to fight for them also. I believe if it had not been such a public forum it would be gone anf forgotten by now.Just try to enjoy this time and don't take all the comments to seriously. Easy to always know what's wrong with everyone else! I do have to mention one thing, I played the Reunion shows twice today, I needed to clarify a few things for myself.As the season went by something caused me to be somewhat suspicious of Taylor.Couldn't quite put my finger on it but after watching the two shows again I know I'm right about her.In her words "tread lightly" where she's concerned. She was the root of some of the problems with Kim and also with Camille.I did hear her wanting to expose Kim by whispering to you after Kim had brought her actions up. Under her breath she wanted you to back her up against your sister..That isn't a very "friendly" thing to do.I'm also not buying the poor unloved routine either, although I noticed you got reeled in hook line and sinker. You can't dump your husband at the door and then wonder why he isn't enjoying himself all evening alone.Russell's personality just isn't as outgoing as most, that really isn't a flaw,thats just Russell...Just my obsevation!!

I JUST WANT TO SAY , THAT I AM THE OLDEST. BUT I WOULD NOT FEEL RIGHT GOING AGAINST, MY SISTER. KNOW IT'S HARD BUT JUST KNOW THAT FAMILY IS ALL WE HAVE

Kyle, I am a huge fan of you and on almost every account I agree I understand as a viewer I am only getting a small portion of the real situation, but it appeared you had plans with Lisa (a dear old friend) and when Taylor text you and interrupted your meal and join you two. Lisa appeared to be accommodating to an extra person in the group, but you and Taylor made it quite clear that it was time for Lisa to leave! Oh, and it was Lisa's restaurant! You really came across as rude in that scene and it was not like any other behavior you had previously portrayed. I think we can all have an "off day" but it may have hurt Lisa's feelings. Just a thought. V/R, Molly Molly

Kyle Your great!!you really make the show more "real". I love the show but some of the antics are over the top crazy, i guess good for ratings. To all the viewers out there keep in mind this is still tv with alot of sensationalism.

I so very much agree with you, Angelanna. I think one of the reasons Taylor got so upset with Kim and was gonna go "Oklahoma" on her was that she(Taylor) knew she had said too much to Camille and was regretting it. The lady protests too much!!

When last nights show aired I didn't exactly get why Farrah's graduation was such a huge deal to you. To the point it would upset you that extended family couldn't make the ceremony (graduation ceremonies = boring). I understand its an accomplishment and a reason for celebration but the way you reacted it was as if Farrah had been elected to Congress. But now I understand a bit better after reading the producer's blog that your daughter is the 1st in the Richards-Hilton family to actually graduate college. Which I have to say I find shocking and hard to fathom. My family, and most people I know, have many multiple college graduates - my own 3 kids included - myself not actually. Spanning a couple of generations for my extended family. It makes more sense now. I thought your reaction otherwise, while prideful which is understandable, to be a bit over the top given for many families this is an admirable yet fairly ordinary and normal accomplishment. But it makes me wonder...does no one in your family value an education?? Kudos to your daughter for not following the footsteps before her...good or bad.....and achieving a higher degree.

Kyle.....

what you did to Lisa at Villa Blanca was wrong.. like what Lisa said, you guys have had a long friendship and you knew Taylor for how long? It seemed like you were totally trying to become bff with Taylor.. what kind of respect is that to Lisa? and then you say i wanna stay here longer with taylor and chat? WOW.

Angelanna

Kyle, I am so glad that Lisa has enough sense to realize Taylor's role in the NYC, Camille fiasco. Please listen to Lisa. She's a good friend who has your back. Be wary of Taylor. And, please, your loyalties should lie with Kim and not Taylor. Kim is not in the wrong here.

Hi Kyle, CONGRADULATIONS! I know it's been months since Farrah graduated. But, not to the viewers.You have so much to be proud of. It's a shame your oldest sister and her family couldn't attend the graduation. It is what it is. They made a great effort, sending Farrah those gorgeous flowers, a generous check. But, I'm sure Farrah would have given all that up just to have them celebrating her big accomplishment with her. I wish Kim hadnt told the camera that you had been crying all week.It's a shame, not everyone is as thoughtful and gracious as you are. You wouldn't have missed Paris's college graduation for the world.But wait, I heard on a talk show Nicole Richie had said, "Paris didnt graduate high school, Nicole said she herself had, and attended two years of college." I'm sorry that doesn't really matter. I hope their not attending at the last minute didn't get you down to much. I know how hard it is when family lets you down. I have a feeling you're the glue that holds the family together. It hurts when you're not treated the way you treat other's. Hopefully you focused on the friends and family that were in attendance. That's what's important. Adrienne and Paul went on a special shopping trip just for Farrah's graduation. Watching that segment had to of warmed your heart.BTW, OMG, Your Mother in law is an amazing woman. She's gorgeous. I didnt think she needed to have any work on her face. No way. Paul was just trying to change the subject and lighten the load. It was funny. I hope she didnt take him up on his offer. She's a natural beauty with perfect bone structure. Most importantly, she's not just a pretty face, she's well educated. Congratulations to you and your family, and to the success of the show!

Try to give Camille a little kindness, Kyle. For Pete's sake her life is falling apart in the public eye! Where is your compassion? Try harder not to be a mean-girl.

Hi Kyle,

I watch the show and I like everyone on it even Cammille even though I think she is a little wacky. Anyway I would like to tell you I know that friends are important but they are not as important as your sister. I dont have any sisters or brothers and I wish I did, but my mother could not have any more children after me. I teach my 4 children to stick together and let no one come between them. You treat your sister bad and you hurt her... Why is it that you listen to Lisa about Taylor when your sister was defending you by telling Taylor she stirred up trouble between you and Cammille. Taylor is miserable in her own life and misery loves company..she has not sister to confide in and her husband and she seems to be quite unhappy.. reflect on that sister are forever friend are in your life for a season..Blood is always thicker than water..Lisa is cool but she is not your sister and she has some skeletons too they just have not surfaced. A true friend will never make you choose betweeen your friendship with them and your sister..and if she were a true friend she would tell you that you should reconsider how you treat Kim because she is family..

Since you value family so much remeber that ..sometime we have to reevvaluate ourselves..

Thanks

Kyle I believe you are the most genuine lady on the show. I just had a couple of things to ask you. Did you notice the way your husband looked up and down the hair dresser that was fixing your hair for the White Party. I believe that was totally inappropriate ! He should have more respect for you especially when your were sitting right there. Another thing I remember Camille mentioning how much your husband really likes the ladies and the way she said it was like she was insinuating that he is or may have been cheating. I hope this is not true but I've been on the other side when I thought my husband would never do anything like that to me....ever.....and he did. I didn't see the signs. I'm not saying anything is going on I was just wondering if you had seen these signs too ?

Kyle, open your eyes and see that Taylor caused all of this between you and Camille. And go back and see the episodes when she lashes out at your sister. Stop yelling at Kim and see that it's really Taylor that is the problem. She is NOT a loyal friend. No matter what. She is fake and here's to you seeing it soon. Lisa was right!!!

Kyle, please be more understanding and respectful toward Kim. She is not your charity case but your equal. She loves you and really cares for you. Stop testing her because she says too much or says too little at different occasions. And for that matter, you keep asking her to support you, but when do you support her when Taylor and her go at it. You are so much nicer to all the other women then you are to your own sister ! That is ridiculous.

Kyle, I love you on the show but I have to admit the longer I watch you the more perplexed I become. It's no doubt you are an awesome mother and I love watching the dynamics between you and your family. I will admit though that for someone who constantly puts it out there that you take care of your sister Kim because your dying mother asked you to look out for her, I haven't seen any evidence of that yet. I know it's impossible for us viewers to know what really goes on behind the scenes and what's happened in the past, but judging how you treat her in front of your friends and the world now that you're on tv, I wouldn't want you for a sister. She's never said anything negative about you but you constantly berate her!! It's unbelievable. You were upset at one point in the show that she didn't have your back but you never do for her either. But at least she doesn't constantly bring you down! You may have great friends Kyle but blood is thicker than water and no matter what happens putting blood down publicly in front of people who have no other vested interest in you other than being friends is a huge mistake. And watching how easy you'd put your own sister down but becoming more friendly with Taylor who is interesting to me because she is clearly an opportunist. I think Lisa sees it, and yeah, I believe whole heartedly she was behind the New York fiasco and now trying to play nice because her marriage is on the rocks and she's going to need some prominent friends by her side, but that is all she seems to care about. You're putting your own sister down, and elevating a girl who is clearly a phony and I'm so suprised you can't see that!

Kyle, I really enjoy watching you enteract with your family and friends. I applaud how you want to turn the other cheek for Camille and give her the benefit of doubt, but be careful, she will most likely slap the other cheek just the same. She is the type of person that will twist your words around to suit her and then when she is confronted she says "thats not what I meant" or I am so ashamed but then she goes and does it again. Be careful of her because she does not know true love and also does not even like herself so how can she respect and like others. Continue being the bigger person, you will reap the rewards in the end.

Now as for your sister, you need to let her grow up. All her life everyone has done everything for her and allowed her to act like an airhead, its time for her to stand up and accept her lot in life whatever that may be and if she screw up thats ok, because then she will learn from her mistakes. You can be there to hold her when she falls and help her back up, but dont judge her. The bible says that there is only one true judge and we will meet him when we pass. Dont judge others least you be judged. (im paraphrasing). Bottom line is step back and let her be her own boss regardless of what that is and dont get mad at her because she has issues with Taylor. Her and Taylor are just like you and Camille and they have to work it out between the two of them.

Take Care and continue doing the right thing by your lovely family. Congrats on getting Farrah to her first really big milestone.

I hope that this gets posted to the blog as it seems that they dont like my blogs and they always flag them. Also wish there was a way that we could know if you truly have read these.

Kyle,

I want to congratulate you for having such a beautiful family. You are the most complete housewife and you should be extremely proud of that... and to all of your true fans you are the most beautiful one! Kyle, the only thing that has bothered me a bit is the fact that your sister seems to be on the sidelines at times. Kyle, family should ALWAYS be first. In the good, the bad.. family is the most important. Please don't let you true fans down.. Please. You should put your sister before any of the housewives. Lisa is right, the fight with Camille in NY was triggered by Taylor... yet you have become closer to Taylor than your sister. WOW... "/

Kyle, you are very rude to your sister. You treat her like crap and look down at everyone. It's just annoying to see that you can be that way with others. Your not perfect! Stop rolling your eyes at people and talking down to others. Take some advice from Adrienne or hang out with her more. She is such a genuine person.

Kyle...love you and your beautiful family,especially your sexy husband and your stunning daughter farrah! Just ignore Camille! it's so obvious that she created this whole mess just to make herself relevant on the show...I love love love your friendship with Lisa and i think you would be wise to listen to her take on the amount of responsibility Taylor has in the exacerbation of the entire Camille fiasco! Anyway i think it was sweet to see the little jealousy Lisa showed when she told Taylor to "back off" from Kyle....Oh and my original reason for even commenting was to tell you how much you resemble Brooke Shields, even ,more than you do Demi Moore:) Love you and all the BH housewives:)

Ladies: Stop with the rhetoric already and move on to a more compatible relationship. Your husband depends on you Kyle to be the bigger person in this mess. Kyle, I love you and know that you have efforted at changing the dynamics of your relationship with Camille. Frankly, Camille makes me dislike her because she can't "let it go". Move on ladies and stop bringing up the situation that brought you to this place, already! You are both involved in the same social gatherings so you need to put your "best" selves out there. Frankly, you are both capable of better than what we have seen so far. I start getting "anxious" when I see the two of you togehter. Please. Let it go and move on.

You are BEAUTIFUL, fun, and all your girls are, too. Not to mention Mauricio, who seems like a dream husband and father. LUCKY YOU! You have a wonderful home life and fab friends, which goes for saying your life on its own is evidence enough for me to be totally TEAM KYLE in this season's ongoing saga. Camille enrages everyone with her self-proclaimed beauty that she says intimidates all women and that all women are jealous of. She is now taking it to the talk shows putting down Bravo in hopes to garner support for herself, and the mess she created trying to shine her way out of Kelsey Grammer's shadow. GO KYLE.

I hate how many comments you get for how you treat Kim. There is no way we could see far enough into that long of a relationship through just a tiny peak via the show and feel comfortable commenting on it like authorities. As someone with sisters, I totally understand both of your behavior (you and Kim) and really enjoying watching it. As for the rest of the show and your contribution, you make it really fun to watch. Beautiful family and really exciting to see what will happen next. I loved the "Jimmy cracked corn!" comment

NYHW

Some of these comments about your relationship with Camille and with your sister just demonstrate that there are all kinds of people in this world and many are driven by insecurity and separation anxiety so they relate to others who are dealing with those same issues. Forgive yourself for being well-grounded, for not having a psych degree and for just trying to keep it real. For trying to get along with someone who didn't want to get along with you and for trying to help your sister get her love life in gear (as she requested you all to do.) Just goes to show...no good deed goes unpunished. While you're not perfect -- none of us is -- Camille, Kim and their supporters need to grow up. Isn't it interesting that Adrienne, Lisa and Taylor -- the other reasonabley secure HWs didn't have any issues with you. Although Taylor needs to stop feeling sorry for herself, at least she didn't hold your happy marriage against you, but instead asked for some advice--which you weren't really in a position to give since your husband/marriage is nothing like hers. That "having it all" discussion was really kind of off base. No one can have it all. Not even you, Kyle. There are things that you want but don't have. The thing is, you don't dwell on those things or let them steal your joy. You are someone who counts her blessings and ends up with no time to whine.

Kyle, You're such a good soul! I love your family and little Portia is so precious. I hope God blesses you abundantly! Camille wants to be right. That's why she keeps bringing up what happened in New York. She will never let it go. She thinks she's right because she invents things in her mind. I'll bet she did that to Kelsey too. I like Camille, don't get me wrong, but I think it's an asteem issue with her. She constantly talks about how sweet she thinks she is and when someone does that it's because she's trying to convince herself. If Camille say's something again in the future about the New York incident, Kyle, do not react. Say nothing. It takes two people to argue. If you really want to put it behind you then do not add fule to the fire. Then, Camille will be arguing with herself. Can you see that Camille is filled with the "spirit of contention" ? So, be ready, I'm sure she'll say something again, if she stay's with the show... Just do not react. Do not say one word about New York. And she'll shut up because she'll feel stupid talking to herself. Ya get it? And be careful about Cedric. Someone who's lived on the streets knows how to con people into feeling sorry for them. If he truly has had a bad past, that's a crime against a child, but he's grown up now and should learn from that experience. I felt like he wanted to tell you about his sad past because he needs someone else, besides Lisa, to help him out. Be kind to him, but be smart and don't let yourself get used. Take care of yourself and your family.

Kyle, You are very likable not only you keep it real,you have a nice looking husband and family. You and your family do things together. Most of all you and your hubbys relationship is wonderful. Camille is very jealous of you.Sometimes we act out or try to put what we feel on someone else.Accusing you of being jealous of her. I will be praying for all the housewives and their families during this time but especially for Camille she is going through she is really hurting.

You are so much more beautiful than Demi Moore. I think the book "joke" is obviously some kind of passive aggresive dig, but sometimes you just have to ignore it or as you say "handle it". Those type of people are most definitely ill and unhappy. You're awesome!!

Kyle, I think you handled the book/joke well. It may have been a joke but she did give a dig and you handled it marvelously. I loved the white party and you could tell that Mauricio was eating up the attention from family and friends. LOL! You did an excellent job of planning such a wonderful event. You get a lot of flack for the way you handle your sister but Kim is a handful. And as far as Camille goes, that lady is on a whole different level from you and I don't mean in a good way. The best thing you can do for her is be cordial and keep it rolling!

Hi Kyle!

Just wondering who is the designer of the shirt you wore to Camille's outdoor party? It was fabulous!

Island Patrol Momma

Kyle is a pleasure to watch. Her appearance, her marriage, her time with her children, her life, appears to be perfect, a life we all wished we could have. However, this is a reality "show," so if its real, great! If not, we'll still enjoy watching the ladies live like we all wished we could, crazy drama and all!

Hey Polly and Molly, No one, including Kyle, misunderstood Camille's "reason" for questioning Faye Resnick's "Playboy" spread, they questioned how inappropriate it was for her to point it out while hosting a dinner party. If you think it is ok for her to call someone out like that who is a guest in her home, you don't have any manners. How was Kyle mean to Camille? When she told her, in a reassuring way, to not be insecure, and Camille got ultra-defensive?? Or was it when she defended herself after Camille's sidekick Allison attacked her marriage?? Which time was it that Kyle was being "mean" to Camille?

Jason B
Jason B

Kyle, You could've come out of this season (and the Camille situation) looking really good and smelling like a rose, because Camille is SO in the wrong, but the way you treat your sister and the fact that you continue to allow Camille to engage you, brings you down into the mud. Rise above it and it will make you continue to look better.

BeyondBitch

I have to agree, you seem to come across like she has no decision making capabilities; when in fact she does, you may not agree with her choices, but each "bad" decision she makes affords her a learning experience & how to have the strength to overcome it & the know how to NOT do it again.....LET HER BREATHE...

I wish you were so defensive about everything Camille says and does. The book was meant as a joke. I loved how she said you to should sit down and go through it together, Laughing. You then made the comment about passing it on to Kim , Laughing. Granted I don't condone the things Camille said in anger any more than I do your comments. I think the best thing you can do to advise Taylor is to tell her to talk to her husband. It's wrong to compare her marriage to yours. No marriage is perfect not even yours. Taylor seems to be looking for some validation for being unhappy rather than fixing the problems in her marriage. If Mauricio had problems in his marriage wouldn't you prefer his friends advise you to work it out with him instead of talking to a third party. It does seem lately you are walking on egg shells in you own marriage. How many times do you need to suck up to your husband. I can't tell you how much it bothers me that your husband kisses Camille's behind to compensate for your behavior. You were wrong he doesn't always have your back!!!!!! Marriage is complicated (remember this when you talk to Taylor). It was great to see Kim happy and confidence in your presence. I would guess being aroung family is her element. Hope the reunion isn't a scream fest like those in the past. If the rumors are true and Camille leave the show, you win! Hollow victory in the end.

kyle- class act would never guess she is related to the socialite who is a bad influence for young people lisa- amazing, all that money and she is still down to earth Adrienne- same as lisa taylor-She needs love,her husband should be grateful to have such a loving woman. camille- I never liked kelsey, her personality makes me love him. I cant wait for the episode where he tells her he wants out. kim-she suffers from seperation anxiety,someone left her at some point in her life and she has not healed.
