Kyle Richards

Kyle discusses the bond she has with her fellow 'Wives and hints at what's to come.

on Sep 16, 20110

Well, here we go again. . .

I have missed writing my blogs and hearing your thoughts. As you all know, our cast has been through a very difficult time recently, especially Taylor. Seeing a friend go through something like this is incredibly painful. In Episode 1, we addressed the issue to give you a peek into what we have been feeling since Russell's passing. This show was shot six months ago and so much has changed since then. Right now, the main concern is to be there for Taylor and Kennedy. One can never make sense of something like this. The only hope is that Taylor, Kennedy, and Russell's two sons can heal and see that there is light at the end of the tunnel.

This week, the girls and I went off on a trip to Colorado to stay at Camille's house. Reminding all of us that there are many fun times we share this season. We have all had our moments with one another, and I am sure we will continue to do so, but we really do enjoy each other’s company. The six of us have formed an indescribable bond. We may not always agree, we may fight at times, but when things get rough, we come together. Okay, maybe it took a while for Camille and me to "come together," but we have. We know each other better now. We are still very different, as we all are, but before, it really was not knowing each other well enough and jumping to conclusions.

Her video was so cute! I love that she bounced ideas of her kids and tignhs that happened in their lives are what inspired the book, it's always fun to know little tidbits like that:) I can't wait to read this book!

Kim, I just want to say that I think you are the best on the show and love to watch it! Bu my one question, you have to tell me!! I saw on this weeks episode 3, that you had a Chanel Kleenex box in your closet where did you get it?? I want one so bad. You probably will not respond because most of the housewives never respond to questions probably because you guys are always so busy. But I would love to know!!

I have always liked you Kyle, be careful with Taylor. Although I feel extremelly sorry for her, she did choose to come on this show and I guess alls fair in Real Housewives.....I also feel you can only do so much for her. I just can't wait until next week's show. You are my favorite housewife, good luck to you!

Kyle, while I appreciate your kindness and concern toward Taylor; I have to say she is an EXTREME manipulater! This kind of person embraces all attention.....negative and postive. Honeslty...I really have to make myself watch my favorite show....she is sickening!!! My heart goes out to Kennedy...but honestly...for Taylor she needs HELP!!!! She's is so pathetic....it just makes me sick!

Kyle, none of us know how much of this show is "real" vs. "reality-show real" but you ladies do.

Your "character" and relationship with Taylor seems to be taking the shape of the Tamra/Vicki relationship on RHofOC.

You were one of my reasons for watching but I so see the same path those ladies took in order to become the "stars" and storyline and it seems to have destroyed their "real" lives.

I so hope you have those who know you best and who aren't riding your coattails for fame to be able to be around you and keep you grounded.

I hope I'm way off but every time I see a new episode, I see the old story of Tamra & Vicki and their lives. Yes, Taylor has had her life drama yet she had a choice to either do this or not and she chose to expose her life, warts and all. As many here have said, she seems to need the attention - whether it's good or bad.

Please keep the focus of the Kyle we saw last season, keep your marriage and children in your highest perspective. Love ya Kyle and don't want to see a repeat of the Tamra/Vicki attention hoes.

All I can say is be a friend ...a true friend to Taylor. When I heard of the whole situation...it was a flash back for me seven years ago. My husband did the same thing, one day after our divorce. The circumstances of the divorce was exactly as Taylors..I have three children and they took it so hard. They are in a good place now and are doing well. They were 7 , 12 &17. when their dad took his life. The family of my late husband was horrible to me...blamed me ..even said I provoked the abuse. No ....absolutely false. I am soo happy now. The support of my friends and family kept me moving forward. I am happily married to a wonderful man and my children are doing good. Please tell Taylor...she will get through this and people are praying for her.

Kyle, why can't you see past Taylor? She is a master manipulator. I know you and your sister may have had issues before the show, that's only natural, but she had her take in the whole thing too. Now, she is forming a wedge between you and Lisa. I feel Taylor will latch on to anybody that will hear her sob story, and that happens to be you. If anything, don't you think she would tell Adrienne about her issues with her husband, seeing as if she is Kennedy's "god mother'' and all?

Welcome back Kyle! I must say I have missed you guys, that looked like a fun trip. Kim is always having a lot of fun with you guys now, I love that.

I'm sorry Taylor went through what she went through, that is why you always reach out for help, too bad she didn't open up to you before.

Looking forward to the season!

Hi Kyle, I'm so glad you ladies are back! I missed you. I love you and your family, you seem to have the perfect marriage with Mauricio and I hope God blesses you with many more happy years together. You seem like a great friend and most of all sister. It is hard to have a family member with an addiction problem, I know because my brother has been a gambler most of his life and he caused my mom (may God rest her soul) and dad so much pain and suffering. So, I know it is not easy. One day at a time. Anyway, you look beautiful as always and congratulations on your new house, I can't wait to see it all decorated. I love the fact that you ladies are back and it makes the fall season even better having you to watch every week. I wish you all luck and I thank you for returning. I will be posting again as the season progresses. God bless you all. Take care. Cynthia

Kyle,

Everyone should want a friend like you who will stick up for them. Those kinds of friends are hard to come by. But I agree with many of the posts here. There is a such thing as picking our battles, and being helpful doesn't have to mean being brash. I have a relative who jumps on any perceived offense and no one knows what is going to set her off. Setting people straight is generally not well-taken. Getting to a point of tactful understanding goes a long way.

Kyle, I appreciate your levelheadedness and honesty. Your husband's honest expression of his feelings regarding Russell's suicide was refreshing. Your loyalty to Taylor and expression to Ken was also admirable, in my opinion, although, I caution you about getting in the middle and "triangulating" in relationships. This is probably something common in your family growing up and you may find it difficult to keep good boundaries around these issues. Someone mentioned that "alcoholism" is a disease and a family disease at that. The RHofBH have an opportunity to make a difference with this issue and perhaps this will unfold as the Series continues. Blessings to you and your family.

You and your husband both have huge hearts. I love you guys. I have to agree with the above Lisa is great, love your sister and dont get caught up in Taylor stuff. Your first priority is your kids, blood is thicker then water and Lisa is a great LOGICAL, NON drama friend.

Kyle, You are one of my favorites on the show. You seem like such a great friend and sister. We are all human and are not perfect! I know you will be there for Taylor! The scene in the hot tub was so sincere and my heart breaks for her. I am so I am glad she has you. God bless you all!

I love the way you love your husband and kids. I love that you didn't pick the flashiest home in BH. I think you're beautiful, and for the most part very grounded. But when it comes to relationships with friends and your sister, I feel your judgement is clouded this season. Kim is your sister! There's not one single housewife more loyal to you. Lisa is a kind, mature, positive influence. Your friendship with her is precious. Don't let the broken toy you're trying so hard to fix ruin or distract from the truly valuable relationships in your life. You're allowing yourself to be pulled into a negative, destructive, selfish energy vortex created by Taylor. I fear for you.

Hi Kyle, so glad all of you are back! I LOVE this show, its the BEST on BRAVO if you ask me!:) Yes, you can see a huge difference in Kim from the beginning of last year's episode's, she was very reserved and now she is very outgoing and comes across as very open and comfortable with the group:) ♥growth:) Also SO HAPPY to see you and Camille make up... I hated that TEAM KYLE TEAM CAMILLE stuff, I was on BOTH of your teams because I just wanted you two to be ok with each other, so glad to see that happening! YAY!:)

I have had the pleasure of watching you and the rest of the ladies being interviewed as you promote your show. It is refreshing to see how supportive and sensitive to Taylor's situation. I am so glad that Taylor has friends who will protect her during this difficult and challenging time. All of you have also answered the litany of questions with grace.

I know that you like Taylor and is there for her. But I think Taylor is trying to get your friendship with Lisa to break up. I am sorry for the Loss and wish the best for Taylor, but she keeps up a lot of mess. Like saying to you about what Lisa's husband said. And also you should be careful about fighting other people's battles, it could be set up

I really really like you, just don't get involve in the drama with Taylor anl Liza. I think Liza is a true friend, do not forget that!!! and be nice to Kim, family should always come first. You and Liza are my favorite, I can understand why you two are best friends, very nice people.

All you can do is love your sister and support her if she decides to get treatment. Anyone who loves someone whose drinking bothers them, can benefit from ALANON. It will give you the tools to deal with the alcoholic. Your sister seems so full of fear. My heart goes out to her. Rehab would give her strength and the tools to deal with daily life. Good luck.

You know what,I want to know IS why you are the bad guy for pointing out the KIM was out of control last season. WHY does she need to forgive you??? Hey KIM wake up! What your family has been doing over I'm sure has been years w/ kim is called enabling. YOU snapped last season after many-many-many KIM moments, I'm sure... Keep being you Kyle !

JMac7678

Kyle, welcome back RHWBH! Congrats on the new house. Best of luck with it. You are blessed. Especially with Kim. After everything you did to her, and all that you allowed your friends to do her last year that she has forgiven you all shows what a huge heart she has. Hopefully you all will not give her reason to regret her forgiving nature. Your children are very lucky to have such a wonderful example of how a sibling can take the high road and forgive the unforgivable. If they only had you as an example that would be sad. I hope you learned that family is more important than friends. Even if those friends are rich. Family is first. Last season you allowed friends to badger Kim and even at times it seemed as if you encouraged them to do so. It was some of the most appalling behavior I've seen on TV. I thought for heaven's sake, how does Kyle treat Kim when the cameras aren't rolling if this is how she treats her when the cameras are there? Truth be told, even if you still dislike and or resent Kim, I honestly hope that you at least pretend to treat her with respect this season. Maybe you can forget that she is your sister and treat her like she's one of those women you strive so hard to impress. I feel sad for Russell that he felt so desperate that he took his own life and like you hope his family is able to move on, forgive and proceed. But I don't forget that last year Taylor was such a bully to your sister. And that she again made snide comments about her this past episode upset me. PLEASE, Kyle, be a good sister. Even if the other women are richer or have more status than Kim, please don't take their side over your sister. When you do that it is so unfair and just not entertaining. It is turn the channel time. Think of Russell and how perception affected him. Don't set Kim up to feel those same emotions.

Kyle No one should judge you. Being part of a family with the disease of addiction is very very difficult, and there is no shame in blowing up once in a while. I am sure you have tried to help Kim, just the same way you are obviously trying to help Taylor, but obviously there is a limit to what you can do. I hope you and Lisa remain close---the two of you are hilarious together, and she does love you a lot. Meanwhile, Camille is a new person. She has changed so much; I can't imagine the stress she was under. Anyway, best wishes to you and your family.

I think the limo was the perfect place to bring that up. Lisa (as much as I love her) understandably stood by her husband, but I feel like Ken could have been a little less opinionated in front of everyone, particularly Taylor. I think you're a wonderful person with a big heart, and it shows every time I watch the show. You stand by your friends and you fight for them when necessary. I may be the only straight guy that watches #RHOBH, but where else can a guy see such beautiful women all in one show?!

You was not right attacking Ken at the dinner party, this made you look bad, hope you had the chance to sincerly appologize to him. Evidently, the way Lisa and Ken handle their marriage, works out. (btw, i am a believer in the theory, that, if you go to therapy for making your marriage work, you already have lost.) i am still a little shocked about this....

Kyle,

I don't know how anyone can possibly have a single negative thing to say about you! I just adore you! You bring such a freshness to the show, and from what I know of BH, you seem to be the most genuine lady in town! Thank you so much for sharing your life with us each week. I know this season has been difficult on all of you, more than words can describe, but it's still lovely to see the lighter moments you share.

Wishing you and your family much happiness and laughter in your new home!

Warmly, Colleen

Hello Kyle,

I love you on the show. I see that your bond with Taylor is getting stronger and you are not as close to your other friends. I hope you and your sister get stronger and closer. Blood is thicker than water. Lisa is a wonderful lady, I think you shouldn't get involved with the drama Taylor has with her. Be nicer to Kim!!!

You're great at supporting all your friends.

We missed you Kyle, We saw the movie "Sibling Rivalry" last night. You were very convincing in a scarey kind of way. You did a great job! It was a great movie. I'm so glad you are helping Camille and Taylor. They both need a good friend. You're new house is beautiful and your family seems very happy. Lisa said everyone finally came to an understanding and are now united as one. I'm so glad because it looked like Lisa felt left out without you by her side. She was a "jelly bean" for awhile. Hopefully she got over it. Kim really loves you she just has to get that demon alcohol off her back and then she'll be fine. Don't give up on her. Ask yourself, what would your Mom do? I'm sure you already know. You're a very compassionate person and I know you'll be the one to bring it all together. You're a leader! Many Blessings to you and your family

I think you are so down to earth. You don't seem to let money define you. Sure you have nice things but you can put on a pair of UGGs and help throw thrash and and move furniture. I'm glad that you and Kim have made up (sort of). I hope that you and Lisa don't end up being the next Bethanny and Jill. I love the humor the both of you bring out on the show. Don't change!

Kyle, I think your heart is in the right place, but you still have a lot to learn. Just because you think it, doesn't mean you have to say it.

Thought you were a great friend to Taylor in the hottub scene. You were really listening and had empathy for the pain she is in. I'm glad she has someone like you to help her during this trying time. I love this show and am so glad everyone came back. It's the only housewives show I watch.
