Who ever said what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas? This was a weekend of pure fun and excitement! Adrienne and Paul were fantastic hosts. I was really excited about the weekend. We very rarely leave the kids, so when I do I feel like a kid myself. I knew that Kim wasn't 100 percent comfortable and I was hoping by the end of the weekend she would have bonded with at least one of the girls. I really felt for my sister when I saw her alone in her hotel room. I actually cried when I saw that clip. I know that it’s not always easy to be on your own. I would give anything for my sister to find someone to share her life with.
Before I get into details about my argument with Camille, I would like to address some of your comments from my last blog. I can't tell you how much I appreciate all of your supportive comments. I actually replied to each and every one of them before finding out that you don't receive them. I guess there are "imposters" which means I don't have the luxury of replying to you each individually here.
There were also some of you who felt that I am too hard on my sister or felt that I shouldn't have discussed my issues with Kim with her daughter Brooke. I can see your point. Sometimes it feels as if my nieces are more like my little sisters. Also, after losing our parents, I am sometimes at a loss regarding who to turn to when my sisters and I have arguments. My being too strong with Kim is much more complex than I can explain in a blog. However, she knows I love her. Even if we fight, she knows I am ALWAYS looking out for her. Also, when I said that I promised my Mom I would take care of her, I should have explained that my sisters and I EACH said that we would look after EACH OTHER. That is what family is all about.
Now, on to Camille: What happened between Camille and I was unfortunate. I had such a fun weekend, in spite of being sick and exhausted. I am not really sure what ignited the flame between us. All I know is that I was simply asking her about her spring break plans. When she snapped at me, and said that she didn't like being interrogated, my feelings were hurt. I am a strong girl but also sensitive. What I didn't understand and never will was Camille saying I said something that never came out of my mouth, nothing even remotely similar. I kept hearing things like "you misunderstood, Camille" or " she didn't mean it like that." How about I never said ANYTHING like that? That is not the kind of person that I am.
If I had said anything at all like that I would have owned it! I am a straight shooter. My first thought was that she made that up to justify her actions. I'm not quite sure to be honest. However, in hindsight, knowing what I know now, Camille was going through a difficult time. If I had known that, maybe things would have been different. Unfortunately, I didn't, and that weekend set the tone for our "relationship."
If you want me to answer your questions directly, you can follow me on Twitter, @kylerichards18. Until next week. XOXO , Kyle.
I love you on the real housewives your my favorite out of all the wives. But with the whole Camille thing i believe you 100% you don't seem like the type of person to make that comment.
Your blogs always refer to an explination as to why you treat Kim the way you do. There is a thin line between being hard on your sister and being a stone cold beeyotch. You can and should change the way you speak to her and about her. Picking on her when you know she's fragile is just bullying.
You are so blessed to have a loving husband and I know you are very much aware of that. I hope your sister finds a life partner in the future. As far as Camille goes, I think she is a little minx and knows exactly what she is doing. I like the way you and the others interact with each other. I surely hope that none of you start so much foul language that the bleeper has to go off like on the other shows. It would be nice to have one of these shows just showcase the life you all live, although, it is far more than many people will ever experience, it absolutely does showcase fashion and home decor which is something that the viewers can gain from on a lesser scale. You are a beauty and it does not seem to have gone to your head.
I love that you are a brunette amongst a bunch of fake blondes. Your hair has a natural, rich, luxurious look to it. Can you write in your next blog what hair products you use and how you style it? You have a healthy, natural beauty which really stands out among all the icky fakeness on the show.
I really do love you. I am personally more of a guy's girl then a girly girl. Only because I am not really into clothes (although I love shoe's who doesn't) and stuff like that. Men can sometimes be easier in party, superficial situation. when it comes to the heart and emotions women are really the only ones that truly understand. Thats why it's good to have a few good girlfriends. I think that is why Camile has such a hard time with women. She doesn't understand the girl code on the proper way to act around others husbands. You can be friendly and playful without all the "look at me, this is my butt and these are my boobs". Women don't want you around when you crave there's husband attention. She still wants to defect the behavior and pretend it's the wife insecurity, when really it's her own.
I'm a big housewives fan and your my favorite. You are yourself at all times know matter what the situation is. Although at times you are a little to hard on your sister cut her some slack and watch what you say to her. oh yea and your man is HOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You are the best, but you are in good company. You also have the most beautiful husband and I would protect my interests as you do.
Who cares about Camille? My concern is for the way you talk to your sister in front of everyone. I know you love her, but she is not your child, she is your sister. So please stop treating her like a child!
Love you the best but you are in good company. Love your husband too and I would stay close and protect my interests as you do!
The relationship you have with your sister is one to be admired. I was one of the many who watched her growing up. After seeing "Tuff Turf" I made the plan to grow my hair to my waist... I would look like a "Sister Wife" now-a-day's, but back then she was truly my idol. She is still a beautiful woman and her passion for her children is a positive reflection on your family. Seems to me, some viewers look at you as though your strictly "cast mates". Your sisters, sisters are a whole different animal... I have one. I look forward to seeing everything unfold and I think it will be very interesting as to where the "friendships" lead.
my mom and i both think you and lisa are the best on this show! we love how you tell it like it is and dont sugar coat anything. we believe you on ur "miss understanding" with Camille. we also think you have the cutest family
Great watching you on the show now! You have been part of my Halloween tradition for years. I sit in the dark and watch the first original Halloween movie and of course scare myself silly- no matter how many times I see it! You and Kim definitely add an interesting dynamic to the show- can't wait to see what goes on with Camille....
kyle, you are my favorite housewife of beverly hills I think you are down to earth and to be honest you are the prettiest of them all. I would like to know where your husband is from ?? I am hispanic and was curious to know if he is.
Kyle, I am enjoying the series!I am curious about what you think of Camille speaking out about being more than Kesley's wife? My thought is she really must of been struggling with the idea that without Kesley she was no longer relevant and doing her best to step up her game and make a name for herself before things went the way they did.I kind of feel sorry for her in that underneath whatever was or was not said(I believed you) its she is afraid that's how people feel about her or how she feels about herself until I saw her in that pool outfit then I took less pitty she has nothing to worry about with that body lol I felt so bad for Kim with all the couples it just seemed like one more thing to make her struggle to feel comfortable with everyone.She is still young and attractive to find a nice guy and have a few more kids if thats really what she wants. I hope it happens for her!I am also curious if Kim's children are upset with you for talking about Kim's choice in men? That could really hurt them if they think your bashing there father's who I assumed you were speaking about when Kim started defending her father's children in the next segment. Loving the show!I really think you,Kim and Lisa are making the show!I watched to see Kim who has been such a mystery since Tuff turf and discovered some very interesting and fun women.Btw I loved you on Down to Earth when I was like 10 and I thought you were so pretty driving my Mom nuts with isn't she pretty?Did she cut her hair?is she getting to skinny?Just loved ya!I still don't know what that was all about cause I am gay but you were my straight star crush back in 1984 :) Best to you, and hope this experience is awesome for you all!
Kyle, you are really pretty and your husband is extremely handsome. With that said, watch women around him. That Camille seems like she'd do anything to benefit herself.
I agree with what you think about Kim. I've dealt with friends just like her.. they don't listen and they just don't get it. Being "mean" (the way you're acting right now... I don't considerate mean either but OTHER PEOPLE do) to her isn't going to get through to her. You have to approach her in a loving way and explain to her what she's doing wrong. Be nice about it. I had to learn this the hard way. Hopefully it'll work for you too given this advice.
you are hilarious & grounded...great combination! You were not too hard on your sister. Its the dynamic of your relationship, besides no one will tell it to you like your sister!
You are definately my favorite ( and I think the most gorgeous) housewife; though I do like Adrienne and Lisa...and your sister but she is a little too much on the defensive). You are so real...and honest without being offensive. Camille was just being too defensive; she is quite offputting. You seem to have a great marriage, great life and I love your husband the best, tho I do like Paul; he and Adrienne are cute together. This has been my favorite "Housewives" series so far, then DC. Keep up the great job...and continue to shine.
I totally believe you when you say those words (to Camielle) never came out of your mouth. She has made it painfully obvious that she does not like being in the shadow of her husband, it's all that comes out of her mouth! I believe she wanted to stir the pot and have a storyline all to herself and unfortunately she dragged you into her drama.
You are my favorite by far...with your sister a close second. You are sweet, strong and very grounded in you life and it's nice to see it on a reality tv show.
Kelsey's wife is in need of some attention, so maybe if you ignore the situation it will go away. Don't play into her lies...rise above them.
I look forward to the rest of the season with you and your family....blessings!
I understand you wanting to protect your sister and keep her from harm but I think you might want to rethink your approach. I know you love her but maybe you should take a step back and try and see things from her point of view.
I love how you are with your husband. It looks like a very sweet and loving relationship. I think you have the best relationship out of all of the housewives.
The Camille thing, I am sure you did not say what she is saying. I do feel bad for her though going through the break down of your marriage infront of God and everybody. Maybe it might be a time to extend an olive branch and be a good friend to her in her time of need.
Kyle! First off, I have to say that I LOVE your name. My name is also Kyle and I have never met or heard of another girl named Kyle, and it's refreshing to see someone with such a great personality rock the name! You are without a doubt my favorite housewife and your personality and sense of humor are awesome! Looking forward to watching this season unfold :)
I'm already a huge fan of the show! Interesting without all the crazy drama. You are definitely one of my favorite, but, I thought you were wrong to put Kim on the spot at dinner about her choices of partners. After all, without them, she wouldn't have those beautiful children. At first, I thought Kim was a little off, but I'm really starting to sympathize with her. She's had failed relationships, which can definitely cause you to have issues with yourself. She needs to see light at the end of the tunnel. Help her to love herself. I'm sure she just wants to be as lucky as you are with your loving husband. And, by the way, he is awesome, and not just because he's handsome. That's secondary for me. He seems really supportive and adoring of you. Last, you need to have a little more confidence. You are in no way chubby! Looking forward to the rest of the season!
As a sister myself I can understand your relationship. Some famlies are different, but when you are as close as the two of you are attitudes can be a little more liberal. And, a few of the children in your famlies are adults, albiet young adults. Nobody else in the world would have enough knowledge of your family dynamic, so you talked about a family matter with all parties involved. I'd prefer that than going to a "friend" who doesn't understand the background story.
As for Camille, she just seems to have her head in the clouds. An emotional and socially late bloomer at best.
I believe you didn't say those things to Camille. First, what she said sounds so out of left field. Second, from what we have seen of her on the show, so far, she seems to be someone who needs drama and enjoys causing it. I know she is going through a rough time now and I feel for her. But, she said herself in her blog that she "was blissfully unaware" of anything that was about to take place. In my opinion what you saw was the "real" Camille.
Kyle, Your generosity of others comes through so clearly. Some of those who have written in seem to take your protective spirit of Kim as a control freak issue. I was the same way with my sister when my parents died even though she was older than I am. She had never lived away from my parents, had only gone from living at home to moving right in with her husband when they got married, to moving right back in when they got divorced. I on the other hand had stayed single, lived on my own, supporting myself since I was 18. I wanted to wait to find "the one" until it was right. I didn't want to be married just to be married or because people were putting you on a clock.
Fifteen years later, I am still married, and I still watch out for my sister but have realized that sometimes she has to fail in order to learn how to survive. Of course, I'm like you where I never want to see her fail and if it meant something devastating would happen to her, I would always step in to make sure she was ok. Once I stepped back a little and let her fail in some things, she learned how to be a little more self sufficient in her psyche. She learned how to work herself out of days that she felt down or in a funk.
I really admire the family you have with your husband and children. There is a true respect that comes through the camera that shows your love and devotion for each other.
As far as Camille, my grandmother always said if you have nothing nice to say ... and that's all I'll say. I understand there were underlying marital issues but I also think there are three sides to every story and we only have seen Camille's so far.
Sometimes like you have done so far, you have to just walk away. You carry yourself with such grace and class that brings such a true lift to this Bravo version of Housewives. You ladies - for the most part - are heads and tails above the rest of the shows in this series by how you have carried yourselves and how you have kept the drama limited to true daily interaction. Whereas I am sure some on the show are possibly using this as a launch for someone to notice their "acting" abilities, I wait every week for Bravo to try to change you by creating ridiculous drama. Yet each week, I breathe a sigh of relief that Kyle, Lisa and Adrienne have the confidence and support of a good family to keep it real.
P.S. I know everyone is asking about your hair and it is absolutely beautiful. I know you said you would answer in Twitter but some of us don't have that. Is it possible you could let us know the product line you use. It is so luxurious and silky. I know more goes into to beautiful hair like you have than just a product line such as diet and environment but it would be a nice luxury to try if it's possible to use what you do. Thank you and stay sweet! You have a big fan club out here!
First, I have to say I love RHOBH. You and Lisa are my favorite wives. I believe you did not say those things to Camille. From what we have seen of her so far it seems that she needs drama and enjoys creating it. I realize she is going through a rough time now and I feel for her. But she said in her blog in Vegas she was "blisfully unaware" of what was about to happen. I think what you saw and experienced was the "real" Camille.
Kyle - I keep waiting to see something about you that says "Aha! Seemed too good to be true that she is such a well balanced, real person!" and each week, you continue to instill your inner beauty acrossed the airwaves.
You have no apologies due for how you felt when Camille was openly selling herself to your husbands. How downright pitiful that she felt the need to do that but that's between her and her own inner being.
I have been put in that exact same situation with an "acquaintance" of our's with my husband pulling me aside and saying "Don't leave me alone with her, there's something weird about her with married men." You have every right to feel what you did and act upon your women's intuition.
I'm pretty sure that your husband knows what he has in you as far as your inner beauty, your love of your family, your values and your outward beauty. He'd have to be hit on the head to want to give that up and should be hit by a train if he did. LOL. All kidding aside, you both seem to have such total devotion to each other and your children and seem to have a real foundation of love, trust and admiration for each other.
Thank you for being such a beautiful woman and showing that women can have brains, beauty inside and out, success and still be a girl other girls feel like we could go out and have a drink with. Stay the great, nurturing person you show to be.
Hi Kyle, I felt sad for Kim last night in the hotel too. She may find another husband soon and be happy like the rest of you ladies. I hope that you and Camille won't be fighting throughout the rest of the season. It won't be fun to watch anymore if that happens. People who are so protective of their business usually have something to hide for a reason. If she thinks women are so catty then she shouldn't be one of them. Take care and I'm looking forward to next week.
I love you and your sister!!! Your are very down to earth and real, keep lisa as a friend I love her too! Keep being who you are and never change for the cameras. Can you ask your sister to blog, it would be great to hear her thoughts on the show. OMG your husband is so HOT!!!!
I agree that you are the liveliest and loveliest on the show. How cool to be in the movie "Halloween" as a little girl.
You cant set your sis up on a blind date? You and your other sister/friends MUST know some cute/single guys?????????Whats up????????
Kyle, I've got 6 sisters and 4 brothers so I know exactly where you're coming from with Kim!! As sisters we are supposed to be there no matter what and we love them in a way, no one else can! I know you love Kim and worry about her too! I hope she finds the happiness you have and if she doesn't, I know she'll have you!! Best of luck to all:)
You and your husband and your babies are adorable. I totally understand your relationship with Kim, and how could anyone judge only seeing a small snapshot of your lives together? I'm glad you understand that to viewers it may not look appropriate to talk to Kim's daughters about her, but again how can we judge your relationships with your family members? As far as Camille goes, it's nice that you acknowledge where she may have been coming from. I don't believe FOR A SECOND that you said that. I can't imagine anyone saying that, especially you. But I do believe that Camille may have heard it that way because she was going through what was honestly probably a desperate time and no one knew then. I hope you two were able to patch things up, sounds like you were :)
Love you on the show, and I'm more jealous that you get to be friends with Lisa than anything!! haha
I just want to say I really enjoyed you in this episode!!!(minus the comment you made to Kim about her choice in men. That shouldn't have been said in front of EVERYONE) But I totally agree with you about Camile and BRAVO to you for dancing right in front of her when she was dancing with YOUR husband!!! I loved that!! I think your going to be my fav after all! Just BE NICE to Kim! She seems to be just a gentle sweet soul!
Don't feel so bad, do you really need to be friends with a person like her???? You so have so much going on. Women like her are scary to some extent, they will do anything to be popular and famous---Watch Out
Hello Kyle, I'm going to start off by saying, Housewives ALL the Housewives shows have been my guilty pleasure. RHOBV is so far the BEST OF THEM ALL! Your are funny, gorgeous, and charming. Theirs no need to be the "snarky" housewife. So far you are coming accross as the "snarky" one. Thus far youve been voted the most attractive. Camille may be sexy in a very freakish way. You are the most beautiful. You guys are a great group of ladies, thus far youre the favorite. Next season follow Ms Mallofs cue. No need for the snarkiness. You have it all, Gorgeous, funny, witty, snarky. Lol.
I really did not plan on watching this show. I really did not plan on liking any of the housewives. But, surprisingly, I'm really enjoying it. I just wanted to say that I think you are absolutely BEAUTIFUL. You're not overdone, plastic and bleached like some of the ... other... housewives. I respect that a lot in a land where EVERYONE it seems like has actively looked into plastic surgery. Camille is a very strange woman. Dancing like a stripper and talking about how "beautiful" her breasts are? Get a grip lady!!! I think her behavior has been pretty inappropriate at times. Shes obviously a drama magnet and has a desperate desire to be the center of attention. Watch out for her... women like that are always up to no good.
Kyle, you're the coolest & LOVE your beautiful home! I really like your sister too - she's so sweet!
I think you and your Sister are Beautiful! I am so far loving the Beverly Hills Housewives...classy, not trashy...well except for Camille's invisible pole dancing skit. So far, Im hooked on the show!
kyle- loved your blog this week and i believe you, i think that it is obvious that you are a straight shooter and you would have of owned what you said to camille. Enjoy seeing you and Lisa, you guys rock and are so beautiful.
You are my favorite housewife on this series and so down to earth! I absolutely love your sunglass collection and I just have to know where you got the ones you were wearing in the poolside scene in Vegas! They were so gorgeous!
I really like you ...i dont think you are mean to your sister Kim i think you are real with her. You can't live through your kids and you just keep it very real ... so I like you keep up the good work
I would love to ask you this on Twitter, but I don't tweet. Can you please share in your next blog about you and your husband? He is sooo gorgeous and sexy! You have beautiful children.
I know that your oldest daughter is from your first marriage. How long was it after your divorce did you meet your now husband? I want to know because many single mothers feel that sometimes they won't find a great guy when they have children and their children will be seen as "baggage" and they have less chance of obtaining the man of their dreams. Obviously that was not the case with you.
I, and I'm sure many other viewers, would like to know more about how you met your husband, how long you dated, how long you've been married, etc. You two are SUCH a beautiful couple, and romantics like me would love to know your story.
Love Love Love You!!! Kyle you are an all around beautiful strong woman that takes care of her family and still can be gorgeous inside and out.....By the way...I pack my luggage the same exact way you do....Too Funny :-)
