Kyle Richards

Kyle chronicles the ups and downs of her relationship with Brandi.

on Nov 30, 20110

This week we get a peek into more of the planning Pandora's wedding. Pandora's wedding planner is hilarious. He certainly is entertaining! I have to say watching Lisa and Pandora plan her big day makes me excited about being able to do that one day too. On a smaller scale. . .

Seeing Taylor and Russell together is hard for me to watch knowing what I know now. At that time, it was hard hearing stories from Taylor and then spending time with Russell. But now, every time I see him, I think of Kennedy. It is so sad. My heart goes out to Taylor, Kennedy, and Russell's family.

Taylor had asked me to join her and Brandi for manicures. On my way there, I called Taylor who told me she was at lunch with Lisa and couldn't make it. I felt awkward to be meeting Brandi. We have gotten past our differences but this was the first time we spent together one-on-one. I actually like Brandi alone. I felt terrible for her after hearing how her husband left her after so many years together and having two children. I can only imagine how painful that must have been.

Kyle , I watched bits and parts of season 2 when I had the chance. I admire you for sticking by Kim and making her realize she had a problem to get help. Is there going to be a season 3 ?

Kyle, You are one of my favorites...your snarky faces are funny and do not seem to be malicious. I would steer clear of Brandi..her divorce isn't as clear cut as being left as she continues to carry on about. Brandi is a toxic mix and used to being the mean girl that bosses everyone else around..with little regard to how her behavior will be experienced by her boys and her family..she seems to be much more concerned about drugs, alcohol, and sex (hanging on any man- and talking trashy)than being a woman of substance. Brandi's children will and are negatively impacted by her actions viewed by millions.. When you choose to be a parent you can't be self centered, you will make mistakes, but to excuse them by stating "I am real" seems to me what should really means is I am a REAL MESS!!

Hi Kyle, I think you have a lot of great qualities, however your really are lacking in some other areas. Why would you pick on Brandi, it shows how insecure you are to pick on the new girl. Who cares if her child peed on the grass, your not so classy all the time yourself.. It seems you only pick on the ones you feel inferior too, weather, they are younger or prettier. I wanted to vomit when I heard you speaking about how your mothers home is still as much Kim's as your families.. It seem as long as the title is in your name everything is fine... You do need company, I'm sure... I have sisters too and that is really disgusting... Your sister was probably down and out and as far as I can tell you preyed on her weakness for your own financial gain... You irritate me a lot, I find you so two faced... As long as it all good for you everything is wonderful... Sorry to be so critical but I see that side of you to be really ugly... Kim is your sister and what would your mother have wanted... In the end it is about the dollars... So my is the home all yours, what is the value of it... only $60,000.00.

I don't feel Brandi deserves to be treated the way you and Kim treated her... Your a women, would you like it... Be an example, not the mean girl...!!!

Kyle, please stop trying to be center of attention all the time. It is uncomfortable watching you. Everyone gets it (you can do the splits) so what, try being a true friend and not a back stabber. You are so rude and mean to Brandi, are you that insecure that you have to try to put people down. You need to really sit back and watch the show over a few times and maybe you will get back to the Kyle we saw on the first season.

KYLE, what was that? You bringing up Camille in front of Russell??? What were you attempting to prove? At least. Mauricio acted like he didn't know what the story was all about, he played dumb, Taylor. Picked up from him. You are an idiot and an instigator. Did you notice Taylor? Her face turnef WHITE! Who knows what lies she went home and told the man. THEY TALK TO ONE ANOTHER LIKE STRANGERS, INSTEAD OF MAN & WIFE. Kyle try to stop being a such a trouble maker ...this season, you are not looking too nice. Peace

Kyle, when are you going to wake up? Taylor caused so much trouble last season and was caught lying so many times. This year is no different. She has caused trouble every single event she has gone to, but always plays the victim. My god she went to Lisa's tea expecting all of you to gang up on Lisa and that back fired in her face. At Brandi's beach party she purposely made a snide remark for Camille's benefit, within ear shot of Camille, and then lies about how it all came down to Lisa. She is a bald face liar, a trouble maker, and makes everything all about her.

You all think her husband was so terrible can you even imagine what she was like to live with? No one can even talk to her without her freaking out. Plus the way she bosses every one around. "You out side." "Stop the car." and telling Lisa to be quiet in Lisa's own house. If you really want to help her tell her to take the focus off herself for once.

Kyle needs to take responsibility for her actions and stop trying to cover her bad behavior with excuses...now she says she didn't give Brandi a chance at the beginning because she heard Brandi was friends with Cedric and she wanted to stand by her friend Lisa...what? She hasn't stood by her friend Lisa at all when she needed to.

Kyle, Are you going to have a new excuse for your terrible behavior after every episode? None have seemed sincere. You take enjoyment everytime someone else says somthing mean about someone else as well. I have seen women like you all of my life and it makes me sick. You try to act like you have class but the truth is you don't have any. People who act the way that you do learn it in kindergarten, it's not brought on by someone elses actions. You don't seem to find the good in anyone. But you like them if they are willing to let you be the center of attention. At least Brandi is herself. She does not need to put on airs. I hope that no matterwhat you and others say about her that she will stay true to herself. Kyle you need help. I really do not enjoy the show with you on it, Kim or Taylor either.

I don't understand you Kyle, last year was bad enough but this season??? I didn't like then and don't like you now.

You need to get off that high horse before your hubby finds some younger and cute! Oops, looks like he's already started. If you go back to the BBQ in the background you'll find your hubby with a great big grin while looking at her.

How in this world can you be so mean to Brandi?, but you enable Taylor to continue passive- aggressively tear at everyone - especially after she created the Tsumani last year with YOU & Camille when Camille was going through what we now know [being dismissed by her ex]. She never fessed up - Lisa saw right through it, but Taylor NEVER apologized to anyone for twisting truths and sat back gleefully. WTF! I'm done with the show - Dr Drew, please help these mean spirited women. Such a waste -

Hi Kyle...I've seen you answer questions on your website, not sure if you even read the comments here. There's so much about you I admire and love to watch, especially your relationship with your husband and children, but several episodes this season have been almost painful to watch. There's a very catty side to you and it seems you prey on the weak, exactly what you suggested Lisa might do. Last season the fights were with Camille as she tried to fit in and this season with Brandi. It's clear you are confident and self-assured. Why not cut others some slack sometimes and give them the benefit of the doubt? It also saddens me to see the distance between you and Lisa; you seemed such amazing friends. Yes, you've been a staunch supporter of Taylor, but I wonder if it's been to the detriment of your other friendships. Regardless of whether or not we agree with everything you say and do, you make this show interesting and fun. Here's hoping things with Brandi take a turn for the better. All my best to Kim.

Interesting, Kyle, how you "tested" your sister Kim's drink at "Game Night"...though on the way to Brandi's party, you and Taylor swigged wine in the limo, when you must have known at that time that alchohol and Taylor don't mix well either. Witness Taylor's meltdown in Colorado, witness Taylor's meltdown at the Tea Party (champagne, and I bet she had some wine and a cigarette before arriving). Brandi complimented you on your wonderful marriage, and you comment with snarls and cat claws? Just don't understand you at all.

Quit picking on Kyle - she's the only humor on the show besides Lisa. It would be a bore without those two. Taylor's the one that has to be the center of attention and it's always in a negative dramatic way. This season has been a bore with Taylor's problems, especially when you're not sure they're even true. I don't believe a thing that comes out of her mouth.

Kyle forget all these haters Brandi is just trash and I dont see why anyone likes her. Love you Kyle stay strong because you are very beautiful.

I've never posted on the internet before, but I have to be real. Yes you made a mistake at game night and you were a little mean, but I'd be lying if I said I've never acted badly in a situation or hurt another person's feelings. Everyone makes mistakes. You've apoligized, Brandi's accepted, so why can't everyone just get over it? Kyle, you're my favorite! I think that people need to realize that no one is perfect or always right, you can be wrong and still be a good person. I can't believe how many people take the time and go out of their way to post negative comments...it's a little sad. Keep doing you. XO

Love you Kyle! You are always there for someone in need and a good listener too. You are the most real, very family oriented and a marriage to be admired and respected. While I don't see a shred of evidence that your marriage could ever be in any danger I only worry a tiny bit only because of the marriages that have fallen apart by participating in these reality shows. But, I know you guys will be ok. I especially admire the love and care you have for your mother-in-law. But I have to say the first time she appeared on an episode I thought what a strikingly beautiful she was. That why for the life of me I can't figure out why she would have surgery. Well anyway keep keeeping it real and keep watch over Kim as I know you will.

Hi Kyle! I love you and the show. I really love your new house and was wondering if you could tell me where you got all of your beautiful mercury canisters! I love them! Anyway, carry on!

Kyle, I have to say I have always thought you were the most even-keeled of the bunch, but you have blinders on when it comes to damaged people - Kym and Taylor in specific. You do no favors by enabling their behaviors, and now that Kym is on rehab and, well, we all know how Taylor's situation turned out, I'd say you owe Brandi and apology - girlfriend was on the right side of BOTH of those issues...

Kyle you used to be my favorite up until this season. You are so rude and obviously jealous of Brandi it is embarrassing to watch. You are cleary threatened by her but if you just gave her a chance and stopped judging her, you would realize she is a sweet girl who is doing her best to try and fit in with your "mean girl" ways. She is definitely the new favorite!

What happened to you? Where are you hidding the Kyle from season 1? Taylor is no ones victim, she is shady. Watch out with your husband since she is spending the night at your home?

BRAVO BRAVO BRAVO to Brandi for actually SOLVING a problem and nippin it in the butt by asking Taylor to leave. Geez for a show with women who "claim they don't like drama" it's ironic that when someone actually did the mature thing by "asking" an out of control screaming guest to leave you jump all over her because of it. When did you get this way?? Or is this who you were all along??.....makes me sad......seeing how you act around girls and how you treat Brandi makes me realize that no matter where I go when I'm out with girlfriends I DO NOT want to make anyone feel how you treat some of these girls, like Brandi.

Kyle, we know you can do a split, twirl your hair and belittle Brandi. It's getting redundant. Got anything else in your bag of tricks?

Kyle, I don't like Brandi at all. Still, I think it was extremely rude of you to be making fun of your hostess at the party for not wearing a bra. Yes, she doesn't have class, but you were making fun of her at her party, in front of everybody else. Also, I agree with Brandi that you always have to be the center of attention. You are a gorgeous woman and you feel threatened by younger, prettier women. I have bad news for you: There's always going to be someone younger and prettier. So get used to it.

Kyle, what happened to you? I don't get how you have Taylor's back esp. when she rips on people the way she does when her mood changes..I'm for Camille on this one..she has been way cooler this season and reasonable..You did need to be center of attention during the belly dancing lessons..I think Brandi tried with you girls..don't know why she wants to fit in with all of you..I would run the other way if I saw you girls coming.

After reading a few of the comments, I am shocked! Kyle, you are a good friend to Taylor. As we all know now, things were a lot worse than we thought with her marriage. I personally think Brandi has absolutely NO CLASS what so ever. Why is she even on the show??? I could do without ever seeing her again. I understand why Taylor was upset with Camille bring up the "details" of abuse on camera. I'm sure Taylor was worried what was going to happen when Russell found out about it and that Taylor was CONFIDING in her friends about his abuse. Why wouldn't Camille be concerned for Taylor, even if she didn't believe her. I don't think a real friend would come out and say that on camera, why not a phone call to Taylor or off camera if concerned about what was true or not. My heart goes out to Taylor and her daughter. As for Camille's friend, she should have been thrown out of the party. Camille is a grown women and can speak for herself. She is the one who started this all by confronting Taylor. That lady has a big mouth!!!

Stop doing those splits in public. It's weird.

Taylar may be a DV victim and probably is suffering some serious emotional problems as a result. But, what is your excuse? Why do you have to treat Brandi like garbage? She had to throw someone out of the part considering all hell broke loose in her friend's house. DD was out of control but Camille had been calming her down and none of you could get Taylar under control. You didn't have to freak on Brandi for being a good host. And, get over your jealousy will you? You have nice family, a good husband and lots of other blessings. The laser pointer gag was ridiculous and high schoolish. You're making a fool of yourself and you're daughters need to see that confidence makes a woman beautiful; not a handsome husband, pretty clothes and a nice body. You can do better, Kyle.

Wow the one person that started all the drama at Brandi's party was Camille's friend. She kept trying to stick up for Camille, and in the process made Taylor more frustrated because she felt attacked by her. She should have just let Camille and Taylor alone to discuss their issues ALONE!!! But honestly you women all act like you're fifteen for God's sakes..... my teenage daughter has less drama than you women. I feel for Taylor and I am sure she was going through hell at the time. People should not throw stones we all have problems and Camille lashing out at her at Lisa's tea party was just to get attention ..... I hope you can all manage to get along in the next season. Peace and Love....

Kyle -

Just read about your sister and wanted to extend a big hug to you and your family. I lost my 40 year old sister to alcoholism on September 1st. I know how difficult it can be to sit by and watch someone destroy themselves . . . and feel helpless to change the situation.

I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers.

Kyle... WTH are you doing? Last year you were one of my favorites and this year your one of my least favorites. Your hanging with Taylor Armstrong is bringing you waaay down in the "class" department! You need to be loyal to your "real" friends and family like Lisa & Kim. Taylor is nothing but a fraud and trash IMO. She is a manipulative, attention seeking, trouble maker and she is dragging you through her mud. WHY are you letting that happen? You are acting in ways this season that look extremely bad for you. Please, class yourself back up.

Mumzer

Can't believe how you attacked Brandi when she asked taylor to leave (which she had every right to do). You are looking for any chance or excuse possible to attack Brandi. You should watch your face, gestures, and tone when you go on attack mode; it's quite nasty. It's sad that you have that in you and that you choose to spew it out at others whenever you feel inclined. You continue to act like a bully and should really be ashamed of the modeling your doing for your own daughters. You could learn a little something about class from Brandi; she may have a potty mouth but have yet to see be cruel as you and your sister seem to enjoy doing regularly.

I feel you were out of line to be so upset with Brandi when she asked Taylor to leave. Taylor was not in the right state of mind. You've always been judgmental about Brandi from the get-go. You're very different this year. Disappointing.

lovely869

Kyle I don't understand you. You seems to care for Taylor yet we never see you address her issues. It was right of Camille to be Taylor's mirror. Why would you pretend to be her friend. A true friend knows when there is a cry for help however, you seem to play it safe and stay out it. Have you intervene and the show didn't air it?

Love Kyle! You are so real. Very family oriented with a marriage much to be admired. While I don't see one thing that would lead me to believe your marriage would ever be in trouble, I can't help but worry a tiny bit only because of the many marriages on these reality shows that have fallen apart. But, I just know you will not belong to that club ever. I just love watching the love and care you have for your mother-in-law. Why she decided to have surgery is beyond me. The first time she appeared on an episode I thought what a strikingly beautiful woman she is! Keep on keeping it real girl! Looking forward to seeing more short takes of funny Portia clips too!

Kyle at Brandi's party you did steal the show. There's a certain piece of you that needs attention and when it comes out.........it comes all the way out. I'm not sure why you have a bulls eye on Brandi's back or her breasts I should say but it's so sad to see you go after her week after week. I'm glad to read that you pre-judged Brandi based on info regarding Cedric so hopefully you ladies can make peace if you haven't already.

KYLE YOU'RE DISAPPOINTING THIS SEASON...I ADMIRE SOME THINGS ABOUT YOU AND LAST SEASON YOU WERE MY FAVORITE HOUSEWIFE. YOU APPEAR TO BE HATING ON BRANDY FOR NO REASON; IF YOU'RE NOT HATING, YOU SURE ARE OVERLY JUDGEMENTAL. YOU STIRRED THE POT BETWEEN HER AND KIM, AND YOU JUDGED HER FROM DAY ONE...YOU SEEM MEAN KYLE...

Kyle....you and Lisa are my favorite and the fact that you guys aren't that close anymore dissapoints me....I feel bad for Taylor and she sure needs a good friend because of everything she's going through right now, but it seem that she causes lots of problems everywere she goes. I can't imagine what she's going through...but her personal problems shouln't be the brought up everytime all of you get together...If she doesn't feel up for parties or get togethers then she shouldnt be there at all.....About Brandi she seems a bit wild, but it looks like she wants to be in good terms with you, why not do the same!!!!!

When you don't like somebody, you are sure quick with the digs at them...so what if Brandi wasn't wearing a bra? Big deal!! How about putting your attention where it needs to be...getting your BFF Taylor under control. A real friend would of stepped up and suggested they leave if they were so uncomfortable, unstead of watching them go ballastic (and then joining in). I am so curious what you think of your behavior this season. I hope it's addressed at the reunion show.

Kyle, as this season unfolds I have grown increasingly disappointed with you. I understand that you want to be friends with everyone, but a lot of the time it comes off as being two-faced. Your little laughs when other wives are talking behind each other's backs doesn't exactly show you're being a true friend. Furthermore, I find it ironic that during the most recent episode you were all over Taylor and being her biggest supporter. You even stated that Camille was simply asserting what everyone else was thinking. I wonder if Taylor knows how much you have talked behind her back as well. It's not fair for Camille to get all the blame (I personally think Camille was just being a good friend).

Oh and P.S., you did touch Brandi first. Just sayin.

Holy crap....really....spot light on her chest??? You changed the dynamics of that party and it wasn't in a good way. Its as obvious as the nipples displayed your jelly:) Very unbecoming....Allow Brandi to shine...clearly you had your time.

Kyle,

I agree with others that you must be careful of Taylor.

She is lonely and also in a financial strain.

Please watch your step and pocket book.

Always family first :0)

Kyle, it seems that you tend to judge a person before getting to know them and only go off of rumors. I really wish you would tone down the better than thou attitude, especially now that the truth is out about Kim and her addictions. I could see it in her through the camera. It was very obvious. No 2 people are the same and you should always be able to find something in everyone that is appealing to you, that's what makes us individuals. If you remember you all had done the same to Camille, I was hoping you learned from that considering you are a mother of 4 girls. It seems that you have forgotten your friendship with Lisa and have left it to fall to the side, that's a shame since she seems so genuine. From what I am seeing, Taylor seems to manipulate anyone she can as long as they go along with her and her wishes. My father did the same as Russell when I was a teen and I just cannot even fathom the fact that Taylor is on the show let alone, is part of a charity she indicated for 6 years for domestic violence, yet, she allegedly was being abused herself? I find all of it very hard to believe that it was not about money. It sickens me to think of how Kennedy will perceive all of this as she gets older. I know that as I aged and matured, I remembered a lot more and started to understand why the events occurred. I'm hoping that she does not hold any grudges against her mother since this is the time in which Taylor is truly needed by her daughter. I too feel SICK when I see Russell, knowing what we do. It's a down right shame that this season was not completely edited with both of them removed or just wait until the next season. I truly love watching the shows, however, I'm very torn about how things were and are being handled in this situation. A little girl is in need and it's from her mother, not you and your family as Taylor indicated that they slumber at your house often. She needs to be with family and those close to her. I'm sure she feels safe and has fun with your children but she is in a great deal of pain and confusion and "playing" and having sleep overs will only help her to forget at those moments, not for the lifetime that is ahead of her. Please take care of yourself and your family and help your sister who is the one you should be concerning yourself with right now. God Bless!

Kyle, good for you sticking up for Taylor. She is obviously in a bad place in her life and she deserves a good and trusting friend. I too have gone through what she has and I know how hard it is to try to function in life after such a tragedy. Camille's friend is not a good "drunk" and I'm glad Taylor is standing up for herself. Stand behind her Kyle...she will need you much longer than just this season.

aunt kassie

Kyle -- you can't play both sides of the fence and not get into trouble. You should have had Camille's back once Taylor, for all intents and purposes, forced her to talk about the abuse on camera. You ALL should have stood echoed what Camille said. If Taylor was hoping everyone would keep it a secret, then Taylor should have shut her trap when Camille warned her "not to go there". Now you look like you wimped out on Camille and yet you say you understand why she said what she did. Taylor is obviously unhinged and unable to think rationally. When you go into a relationship for the wrong reasons (and it obviously wasn't for love) things can go wrong quickly. She needs to accept responsibility for her part in it and then get help. Of course, now it's a little too late. I would suggest you apologize to Camille for not standing up for her at the tea.

I wish that you would own your mistakes and stop making excuses, everyone has a potential reason to be "protective" or "defensive", but acting upon these shows your true character. Kill them with kindness. Apologies contain no buts!

Kyle keep doing you! Everyone is complaining about the snide remarks and comments but this is from people who are watching a reality show that showcases DRAMA between 40+ women, not sure what they expect. Viewers if you're so outdone by catfights and drama then, do us all a favor stop complaining and WATCH ANOTHER SHOW! By the way no one would watch if everyone was nice as people claim they want everyone to be. Every season has a villain, last time it was Camille, this time its you. To me you haven't done anything agrecious other than be a little catty. No one is perfect, I love how you are always your authentic self good and bad.

I could not believe that after you seemed to slap Brandi's hand that you said don't you dare touch me! She was just putting up her hand to hold yours away. why do you keep defending Taylor? can't you see how she does nothing except cause trouble? Take the shades off and take a good look at the situation!

I honestly wish people would stop focusing so much on Brandi's physical appearance and start hearing what she says... Kim at least, has been addressing her own issues...she may come across as spacey but she is trying to move forward....much luck to her in rehab...

DeeDee in this episode, went to the defense of a friend who has been there for her...I refuse to fault her for that.... Kyle, you try too...I think your comfort zone is your home and family...these situations with the rest of the group don't bring out the best in you...good for ratings bad for stress levels....

Kyle, you are a sweet person an have such a constsnt urge to nuture but I think your good nature and loyalties are being taken advantage of by Taylor. Just take a step back before offering more of your own emotional well being, in my opinion it is very much undeserved.

Kyle, I enjoy you. So glad that you try to have boundaries. Brandi does not have the class to fit in with the RHOBH. She needs to stick with her Dr. Drew gang.
