Kyle Richards

Kyle shares her hopes for Taylor, what she and her sister learned on the trip, and Portia's favorite pasttime.

on Sep 20, 20110

This week's episode was quite a dramatic one. After talking to Taylor in the jacuzzi we all went in to get ready for dinner. Although Taylor and I had an emotional conversation in the jacuzzi, I wasn't prepared for what came next. Taylor clearly has a lot going on in her life that she is finding to be overwhelming. My heart goes out to Taylor.

Taylor is the one I knew the least when we started this show. She started to open up to me little by little. I think you can see by our conversation that I may not have known everything about their relationship. Of course, now, I know a lot more.

I felt sad hearing the things Taylor shared with Kim while laying on our bed. It seems Taylor keeps a lot inside. I just want her to feel safe enough with all of us to be open about what is really going on in her life -- that way we can all be there for her and support her.

I laughed at me coming out in my towel and seeing them on the bed together. I was thinking "Am I seeing things?" It makes me happy to see my sister "bonding" with the other girls. I know, in spite of everything, she enjoyed herself that weekend. Kim and I actually ended up having fun sleeping in the same room. Just like when we were little. Laughing and talking. . . including her talking in her sleep.

Kyle, on a couple recent episodes, you had both dogs in your show. I am very curious, what type of dog is the small/med size shaggy fluffy brownish dog. Im looking for that type, but not sure what breed (miniture sheep dog type). He is adorable. Could you send a picture of him/her so I can show my husband... I love watching your show and your beautiful kids...Thank you.. Renda/Des Moines, Iowa

Kyle, I was so thrilled about your charity work. Awesome! I felt that you and the girls were being so catty about Brandi. She didn't do anything to any of you and you all were laughing making fun of her. I know you ladies have more class than that. It was really disappointing to see.

Hey Kyle. First of all let me say that I started watching RHOBH because of you. I am a huge Halloween fan. Until the show started I didn't know that you and Kim were sisters. Escape from Witch Mountain is a fond memory from my childhood. Despite Kim's issues. Don't turn your back on her. In the end, family is all we have. I originally wanted to send this to Taylor but she doesn't have a blog and from what I've seen on the show. You have become close with her. I am so sorry for what she's going through. I can't even imagine. I have been in physically, emotionally and mentally abusive relationships. I thought that any attention from my boyfriend(s) was better than no attention and that meant that they cared. It doesn't. IMO what he did was selfish and cowardly. I've had some very low times in my life and that was never an option. I would never want to intentionally put my burdens off on someone else. I don't mean to sound insensitive but that infuriates me. I've said some things that I wouldn't have said to her. If you feel like any of this could be helpful please forward it. She's not alone and there are people that care about her even thought they may be strangers to her. On another note. Don't be so hard on Brandi. Her "claim to fame" may be her husband leaving her for very popular celeb but for her I'm sure that was hard to eat. To have a break up in the "real world" is hard enough. To have it in the media where it's constantly in your face. I couldn't imagine.

Kyle, Love watching your show. You genuinely try and be there for your friends and family. For the most part you are the most sensible and genuine of the group. I wanted to ask you about the furniture in your new house. I realize it is a weird question, but I have been looking for a sideboard that I absolutely love and you seem to have it in your house. It was in this last episode (9/26) in what I believe to be your living room. Its light wood with mirrored accents. Can you tell me the designer or as much as you can about it? I must have it. Thanks! I will definitely keep watching your show...love it!

Kyle, I was very interested to hear on tonight's show that your husband had neutropenia as a child. My 16th month old son, Alexander, is severely neutropenic. We are in and out of the hospital each week. I was so pleased to see that your charity event raised money for children with cancer. The doctors at Memorial Sloan Kettering in NYC have been great! We are in the process now of trying to figure out the best way to treat Alex. It's tough though because his veins are scarred from him being poked and prodded all the time with needles for blood work...which I'm sure your husband can relate to. I guess I just wanted to say thanks for your support...I had never heard of neutropenia before my son was diagnosed with it and I just found comfort to know someone like your husband had it and was able to live a full and healthy life!!

It was nice to see the compassion that you and Kim showed to Taylor. Your sister did a great job of trying to cheer things up! Whatever it takes is right. You have a lovely family and it shows how much you cherish them.

Kyle My baby sister and I are best friends. We are six years apart. Our parents brought her home from the hospital, put her in my arms, and said, ' here's your baby, Carolyn'. We are now 55, (me), and 49. With, children, loving husbands, and grandchildren. I gotta tell ya, through it all, so many years of ups and downs, there is no way I could live without my sister. She is my rock, my friend, my voice of reason. May God bless you and your sister.

I am single by way of divorce. I live with daughter who is never home. I stand in her bedroom doorway and talk to her empty room. Daughter wants her cell phone bill paid and her allowance. I drink a lot too.

watching portia w/ the pooper scooper was cute. she's adorable. it seems like kim needs help w/ her drinking, like maybe more situations where wine isn't on the menu. i bet she's depressed and possibly lonely. hopefully she can find a better outlet for her emotions. she's funny.

You seem to be a nice person, but I can't help but wonder what you'd be like if you weren't able to spend all that money!!

A little tip on the skooper. I use to use one of those. But have found a regular square end shovel and a hoe works the best . Sons come in handy for that particular job. I'm one of four girls as kids I didnt even know dog doo existed. It was my brothers job. Congratulations on the purchase of your home.How cool you got the home of your dreams having only seen it from the outside when you first dreamed of living in it. You really can tell what a home is going to look at on the inside just by looking at it from the outside .

It was clear last season that Kim has a drinking problem. The argument the two of you had was just one of those situations where you blow and can't control your tongue-ud clearly had enough...both of u said some things that were hurtful but honestly thats one of the great things about family theyre real easy to forgive...glad ur both mending that relationship. As for ur husband, he'll come around sometimes its harder for spouses to forgive but he will. I so feel for Taylor, its hard to explain but you cant help who you fall in love with even if they are abusive. I am sorry for her loss but shell be free now it hurts but there's also a sense of relief. Just be there if she needs you. Wish all of ya had a better time at Camille's place but it certainly wasnt a waste, u got to see Kim interact with Taylor, you were all there for Taylor, still got in some skiing, laughs, good food, drinks and company.

Kyle, you are one of my favorite housewives. I think you handle yourself very elegantly but at the same time being very down to earth. I hope that your family is as wonderful as it appears. Your husband seems to be the best of the husbands and your relationship with him seems supportive on both sides. All of my favorite wives happen to be on BH show.....Lisa and Adrienne are right below you and the rest fall on and off the list.

Kyle it is shameful how Taylor has treated Kim, the first season anyone could see thru Taylor what a liar and a troublemaker trying to become between you and your sister, at the reunion talking about Kims drinking problem, I never liked her for the moment I saw her. I hope all your love and energy goes to your sister not TAYLOR, her problems are bigger than anyone imagined it so clear, hope you can see it, she wanted your husband cant you see it??? I wanted that, I want your husband too!!!lol stay well and always put your family first. always forgot to add Kim could see thru Taylor too!!

Portia and the pooper-scooper were so adorably funny and a very welcome break from how emotionally exhausting this show has become. I hope the producers put more fun scenes in than they have been doing. This show is supposed to be puffy entertainment! Everyone has crummy things happening in their own lives these days and genuinely need the sort of escape this show provided last year. I adore Kim and am happy that, so far, people are being much nicer to her even though at times she seems a little slurry and drugged. Perhaps she needs to meet a cute neurologist.

Kyle, it's very apparent to me that you are not only self-absorbed but also very selfish and have no compassion towards anyone especially your sister and Taylor. If it's not all about you, you roll yours eyes or make eye contact with one of the other wives like saying " Oh what a Drama Queen, do we have to listen to this shit again " You've never been kind to your sister and seem much to worried that she might get more airtime than you. She is the only person in your group of women that is " Real " and not a person that cares about the fame. You should thank your lucky stars that you found a wonderful man who takes care of you. I have a question for you. Have you viewed your shows? Maybe you should take a real good look and make some changes to yourself. I'm not very proud of myself for watching the show and getting a kick at watching all of you make asses of yourselves. Real friends help each other, not destroy each other. So I'm not going to thank you like some of the other people have.

Kyle, you are my favorite Real Housewife out of the whole bunch (and I'm talking every city, every season!) You are beautiful, a wonderful wife, a wonderful mother, and a great friend. I watched you last season and you remind me a lot of myself-I had an experience with a friend that was similar to what you had with Camille. I can tell that you reacted the way that you did because you are a very passionate person with strong feelings and emotions, and there is nothing wrong with that-it is a gift that you are able to care so much about things. You did nothing wrong and I admire the way that you were able to salvage that friendship...I think it says what a good person you are. I look forward to watching you this season-please keep being you we love you for it!!!

That baby of yours is beautiful! She is sooo cute! I think you handled yourself very well, with your calmness, you helped to keep the situation from escalating.

I could not stop laughing at Portia. That child didn't have a care in the world and years later when she looks back on this moment, she is going to be mortified but its the cutest, sweetest thing I've seen in a long time.

Kyle, You really showed your true colors last season. Fighting with your sister like that on TV for the whole world to see. How sad and embarrassing! You took low blows, you were so hard on her the whole season. You are takcy airing your dirty laundry for everyone to see. You just learned how to control yourself for the cameras this season. Im sure it is not the real you. You just remind everyone else how simple and normal our lives really are. You can say it all day long but clearly we cant see it.

You are a great friend, however, I don't think it was/is fair of Taylor to ruin everyone's parties. I know Taylor is going through some rough times, she needs good friends, but what about Camille and all the efforts she put into having her friends for her Last time, and then Taylor ruins it? She ruined the dinner party too? I know she is hurting, but she doesn't need to ruin it for everyone.

I like you so much, but to expect someone who is having a nervous breakdown to just stop because you all are vacation...are you kidding me??? You evidently never have had a breakdown. Congratulations.

I hope you and Kim make up for good. I wish I had my sister back. She died in 1989 from cancer. I miss her everyday because she was my best friend and helped me so much. I could go to her about anything.

I can't even imagine what Talor is going through, and my heart goes out to her. I just hope the whole season is not going to be about her. With all the interviews on television, it is getting to be a little too much.

I wish the best for Taylor and Kim because It has to be hard for Taylor to deal with the loss of her husband and having to tell her child what has happen my heart goes out to her and the whole family. I could always see from the time the show started that there was a sadness in her and that she never seem happy. As far as Kim I also hope she get the help she needs but I still believe that Kyle should never have gotten that mad were she told her sister private matter on national TV. as a sister to Kim she should know that was not what her mom would have wanted it, I see she wanted Kim to shut up when Kim said she stole her house

Kyle it is obvious that your husband realizes that he chose the absolute best Mother for his children as well as his life partner. You are an incredibly amazing woman. You are sooo beautiful on the inside and out. You are classy and humble and would be someone that I would treasure as a friend. One of my motto's is "resonate with people that bring you to your highest self." God Bless your beautiful family!

Hi Kyle,

You are my absolute favorite on your show. I think you are so beautiful and smart and you keep it real.

Your daughter cracked me up with the pooper-scooper! She was so funny and reminded me of my son who is about the same age. I think between 2-6 are the cutest ages, they say the cutest things and they love to help Mommy. It's nice to see you ladies when you are being mothers to your children. It's the best part of the show. All the petty stuff disappears and you can see only your humanity and it is beautiful! :-)

Thanks for the entertainment and for saying the stuff that I WISH people would say all the time!

People are just trying to be a part of the edited up drama from the show, don't pay any attention to them. My husband listens to the show while he's reading and I'm watching and he says he likes you best because you remind him of me. I think that also means that you are the most down to earth/relatable housewife on the show. I can identify with the choices you make and the mistakes you make because you are not on drugs, drunk all the time or trying to be pompous! Keep is up and please stay on the show! Non-hater in TN!

Kyle, during the first season, I was pulling for you through all that you had to go through with Camille. Since your friendship with Taylor, it appears that you have changed and not for the better. So disappointing!

Kyle, have you done a Pantene ad yet? You have the most beautiful hair! I wish you ladies would have more discussions about how you stay in shape, diet, make up tips, fashion. The things every woman discusses but you ladies have the inside track.

Kyle, you are my fav on the show, and you have been since the very first episode. I like you because of how down to earth you are, and how strong you are. You also looks like a great friend. I have such respect for you as a person, and I'm really watching the show all because of you. Loved to see how well you and Kim got along in this episode. The final ep in season one was heartbreaking, and I'm glad you two are working it out. I wish you and your beautiful family all good.

Kyle, I am so pleased to see you and Kim having a good time together and getting along. I do not have any sisters but I wish that I did. People say you can't miss something you never had, but I say that I miss not having a sister. Please, even though I am sure it is not always easy, cherish each other and forgive each other when you have disagreements, you are both so lucky!

Kyle, why isn't Kim blogging this season? I understand why Taylor isn't but am curious why we haven't heard from your sister.

Kyle,

I admit, I wasn't your biggest fan last year. Especially the way, you and your sister argued and had a blow out. I will say this, I always felt that my sister and I weren't very close, but after watching the explosion last season made me realized that she would of never said or done things to hurt me. I think you stood up for Taylor and Lisa instead of fighting for Kim, and it showed. However, seeing you this season has been quite a joy, your smiling, laughing, acting like a kid again with Kim, which I love! You can see true happiness in your eyes when you guys are together! Never forget the good times you had with each other...because one day it might all be gone!

Good luck with all your new adventures and God Bless your wonderful Family!

XOXO

Kyle....I'll never forget the remark you made of your mother asking to take care of Kim........that blew your whole relationship up last season. What YOU have to realize is that Kim needs a sister that is a GOOD FRIEND and NOT another mother. How would you feel if she were you? Case closed! You need to take care of your own house.

You're awesome Kyle, but your friendship with Taylor has appeared a little off-putting from a viewer's persepective. I am of course, devastated for Taylor with all that has happened and wish her peace and happiness... But speaking strictly about the show, Taylor does appear to want to wedge herself in between you and Lisa. And it would appear that things get bad with you and Taylor at one point this season.... You are a great, supportive friend but don't get sucked into any more BS...and never let another person (namely Taylor) come between you and your own sister again..
