Kyle Richards

Kyle lets us know what she really thinks about Dana and Brandi -- and about Taylor and Lisa's relationship.

on Oct 3, 20110

This week Taylor and I go to Dana's house for lunch. I don't know Dana well but it was nice of her to come and support my charity The Lollipop Theater Network. A few of you mentioned how little money was raised at the event. Although, I do wish I had raised more, it did bring a lot of awareness. The website used to get 150 hits a month. Now it has been getting 250 a day! I cannot begin to tell you how happy that makes me. Doing a reality show has its ups and downs but this is a great example how it can do good. One viewer of RHOBH donated $500 -- very kind and generous, especially during these difficult economic times.

Dana was as nice as can be. I had to laugh when she was saying that her son reads, counts, speaks Thai, and is studying the encyclopedia. I have to admit though, I think all of my children are geniuses as well! Her love for her son is obvious, and although we laughed, I can appreciate that.

Kyle, you are one of my favorite housewives from all of the shows. As much as i like you i do have to agree that you were a witch that night. And that is putting it nicley. Kim however was much worse. For someone who was a guest in some one else's house and supposedly didn't really know Brandi you and Kim were WAY out of line. Kim very nastly said OUT LOUD she didn't like Brandi and laughed all along with her. The two of you owe a hugh appoligy on tv. I will keep watching and hope to see you be yourself again.

You use to be my favorite housewife along with Adrienne. But i must say, now I cannot stand you. You and Kim were very rude to Brandi for no reason. YOU AND KIM OWE BRANDI A APOLOGY. You should feel bad, grow up Kyle...

Kyle: I like you alot - think you are often down-to-earth, and I can understand why Lisa likes you. You have a lovely family. I'm sure any one of us would reveal lots of warts and imperfections if our life with siblings was taped. You are brave to do it, and I don't know if I could be strong in a similar situation. Nevertheless, the way the game night episode was taped --whether or not Kim was suffering from anxiety or substance abuse -- makes you look like mean co-dependent girls. In my opinon, if you don't get help from Al-Anon quick, or one of you leave the show, you will continue to get pulled down in Kim's vortex, and suffer from the obvious burdens you're carrying. Un-recovering Alcoholic and Addicts have a much higher mortality rate than the average person and the only way around it is through tough love. Don't let your guilt get in the way. You have a right to your own life and Kim will never recover until she hits rock bottom.

Kyle, You and Kim double teamed Brandi and that was not fair. If Kim didn't have you there to watch her back, I wonder if she would have the guts to be that rude to someone without you holding her hand. I think you should give Brandi a chance and not shut her down because I think you're better than that.

I am at a loss how grown women can act like teenagers - all the petty arguments and back stabbing. Life is too short and wonderful to indulge in all this silliness. It's getting old! Kyle, I'm afraid you are not the authority on everything you seem to think you are. Many times you are just plain mean. I would be so embarrassed if I were to act that way. I grew up in a time when people respected each other and their opinons. I think most of you should grow up.

I'm going out on a limb but if I had to bet; I would bet that Mauricio has peed on the lawn a time or two. If he is a male and he seems to be one, he's peed outside probably on his own lawn before. Just sayin.....guys from ALL socioeconimic backgrounds do this. I've known millionaires (sorry don't know any billionaires, but I bet Mark Zuckerberg has peed on a lawn or two in his day) who have done that and everyday middle class people who have done it too. Just chill. Boys will be boys.

I was touched by Mauricio's little speech on the neutropenia he suffered as a child. From the way he spoke I am *guessing* he is good to go now. If that is true, I would love to hear how he cured it. I got it from a chemo drug and I can't fight it altho my little body is strong.

I'm pretty confident you won't tell help me, but perhaps Mauricio who has always been a gentleman and sweet might tell me his best tricks for beating it.

Kyle, up until Brandi appeared on the show I liked you. You always appeared to be honest, straightforward and most importantly fair with people. What I've seen with your reaction to Brandi has been extremely nasty. You barely knew her and made a snap judgement and you appear to go out of your way to make it very obvious that you don't like her. My advice...Grow up. I feel bad for poor Brandi with the way you and Kim treated her. I would certainly hope to see that you apologize, nobody deserves to be treated that way. Your not in High School anymore.

Kyle, please stop being a bully. You start most of the drama on the show. It's really sad. I have a feeling though you might never realize this!

A 4 year old boy peeing on the lawn is only mildly funny. It isn't outrageous or shocking. It isn't behavior that you jump up and correct (particularly when on crutches). What did you want her to do? Freak out and spank him and leave the party? Had he been a little girl - SAME THING. You don't have to be the mother of a boy to know that. You spend a lot of time on camera and in these blog expressing shock at seeing yourself being catty and hostile, and then explaining how you were perfectly correct in behaving that way, followed by insisting that you are a super nice person, that you have been a victim of the group dynamic, and that IF you really were mean, your hussband would never put up with it. Words are words are words. The very idea that you were sooo offended by her use of the word "c*ck" - then ran around bad-mouthing her and absolutely freaking out that she had suggested that you all think of her as a slut. (You mention it twice to every other housewife and then on the blog - we get it.)Anyone over the age of 12 would have seen that she was desperately trying to fit in, make friends, be a little shocking and funny - but all you saw was an opportunity to be catty and exclusivist. On the one hand you really like Dana, on the other she is ridiculous in her talk of her child, the clothes she buys and the money she spends. You love your sister, but she makes you nervous and embarasses you. Lisa is a nice person but she needs a head spanking now and again for her attitude toward Taylor. And all of this IN FRONT of the camera. I shudder to think of your antics in private. Here is a thought - try a little kindness and understanding. You don't have to like someone to be civil and courteous. Every thought and reaction you have doesn't have to be expressed and then defended and explaine until we're all convinced you didn't "mean" it. You said it, you did it. Own it and apologize. Sheesh.

WOW, Kyle I normally like you, and this will not stop me in the future, But WOW. I not sure what is going on with your sister. I know she is just like that a lot of the time and when people frist meet her they probably thinks she a little wasted. I honestly don't believe any of that would have been said if you two didn't sit there and be cruel to Brandi. She took it and took it and you look like you where ready to pick a fight with that IQ comment. I felt bad for her, and you two kind deserved it. Sorry but it's true. I wonder what you thought after you watched it back tonight. Normally you are a nice person, and if you don't like someone thats fine. Maybe she rubs you the wrong way, but you don't have to sit with your sister and talk about her like a bully in high school. I really hope things get better. I still love you

Kyle, I was on your side last year regarding your disagreements with Camille but I have to say that you have lost my respect after tonight's episode. You should be completely ashamed and embarrased of yourself and your sister's behavior. You have been rude and very juvenile towards Brandi. While I agree that Brandi could be a little more careful about what she says, I don't blame her for standing up for herself. I would have liked to have seen her kick your ass....you deserved it. Grow up!

Kyle,

Lisa has been fiercely loyal to you and always has your back. That's why I find it baffling how you're treating her this season. You were way to hard on her regarding the insensitive remark Ken made. It was just one comment, it was his opinion which he's entitled to, and it did not come out of Lisa's mouth. Also, you shouldn't insert yourself between two girlfriends who don't care for each other. It's OK for two people to not be friends. Not everyone has to be friends. Lisa seems rock solid. But she has a lot of pride, and though she's a good friend, she's not going to sit around and be your punching bag. If you don't step up to the plate and be a better friend you're going to lose her, and all you'll be left with is that emotional basket case who mistreated your sister.

Kyle - I "get" you. I love your gorgeous exotic husband. Even my husband has a guy crush on him. Would love for bravotv.com to update your house tour online. Finally, I can see where this thing with Kim is going and feel for you that you have to answer for her behavior and have everyone report back to you with a problem you're already aware of. I am in same boat and it creates stress when I have to justify for my loved one's behavior to others. Yes, time will tell.

its funny how ur trying to go back on your actions. it really is entertaining to watch you make a joke out of yourself. its funny how ur trying to say you can understand brandi and it normal for boys to do what her son did but clearl on the show you were trying to put her down by putting down her parenting skills. be real and stop being fake own what your actions were and stop making excuses.

its funny how ur trying to pretend that you related to brandi and dana after bashing them on tv. honestly kyle you seem really fake in your blog and i think u do see how mean you are on camera so you try to make it seem like you really like these girls on your blog. watching you on tv makes me feel bad for you.

Last season you picked on Kim and Camille. This season, you're going after Lisa (your supposed BFF). What's the common denominator? TAYLOR! She tried to monopolize your attention by having you fight HER imaginary battles. Smarten up and remain loyal to your true friends and sister.

Lindsay

Hello Kyle, Please remember how Lisa defended you to everyone after the fight that Taylor instigated with Kim. She urged everyone not to judge you too harshly as all the facts were unknown. She has your back, Taylor doesn't. I hope you and Kim can repair the damage done to your relationship!

What has happened to you? Perhaps Brandi does says crazy things but at least she is straight forward, unlike you tend to say things behind her back. Get real please!!! Stop bashing the other women.

Kyle: You are my most favorite Housewife in all the series combined. You seem different than most and that is a good thing. What girl doesn't act with a little drama from time to time but you never put yourself out there like you are better than anyone (not mentioning any names...Lisa) As for Brandi, I am really dissapointed this woman is getting air time on my favorite show. She seems to have no class and is not trying to be friends but trying to make others feel bad because of her own insecurities. I feel for any woman or man who is cheated on but the way she talks about it makes her look even worse. Take the high road Brandi, but I am sure you don't know what that is!!

I do enjoy watching you and your family on the show. I can understand why you were a little taken back by the casual use of the "c" word, I don't think most ladies were brought up with that word rolling off their tongue. Good for you. Just as I don't think most ladies talk about how much they make and how much things cost. Aren't these common sense rules our mothers taught us as girls? Evidently not for everyone. Be kind to Lisa, she is a good judge of character (except for her Cedric mishap) and she's had Taylor's number all last season. Get Kim off the show, her problems shouldn't play out publicly. Enjoy Adrienne and Camille and don't absorb Taylor's negativity.

I have to say Kyle you have been my favorite up until recently. I was very disappointed in the way you acted at your Fundraiser making funof Brandi and the way you made fun of the other girl. You girls really bad mouth each other all the time! Is it required of you?

You may not have had the benefit of seeing tape prior to the airing of this show, but its clear Taylor's memory and hearing was quite selective in these early episodes. At Adriene's dinner party, Taylor asked Ken what he thought of therapy, but the then was saying in the car on the way to Beaver Creak, no-one asked him for his opinion. Lisa said 'I'm not your best friend' and Taylor heard 'I'm not your friend.' I get that she was stressed and upset, but she was perceiving attacks and insults where none were leveled at her.

Kyle,

Don't listen to all the negative reviews you are my favorite person on the show. Can you post where you brought the red shirt that you wore to Adrinne's BBQ? If you know the designer of the shirt can you post that too. Thanks!!

Kyle, I cringe when you start making fun of other women. If you think your behavior will get ratings, then you are wrong, all it will do is stereotype you as a hard person to work with.

I think your true colors are really coming out this season. Last season you masked them pretty well in the start, but towards the end they were coming out a bit too. You seem like a mean girl Kyle, and then here in your blog you try to cover up you actions from on screen. If you're going to be mean to people in your private interviews, stand by what you say instead of blogging to a different tune after it all airs to try to save face with fans.

Kyle, you and Lisa where my favorites BH housewives last season. This season, Lisa is my flat out favorite. I'm teetering on the fence about you. Time will tell which side of the proverbial fence I land on......

Kyle,

When I first watch the show I saw you as a beautiful classy Lady but your recent actions makes you judgemental and classless. It's great what you did for charity but the way you act I would be embarassed if I was in the Cancer organization. Your rolling of your eyes is really judgemental towards Brandi. Have a heart! She has gone through a really tough divorce. I hope your husband does not do to you what hers did to her. You should judge what she says because some times you and your family do and say very tasteless and classless things. Remember those who live in glass houses should not throw stones. I hope you can go back to the way you were in the beginning. I wish you the best.

You are not Perfect! Stop acting like you are......and you are not Lisa's friend that is for sure.............If you feel sorry for Taylor do not confront Lisa....It is Taylor's fault the problem you had with Camile at New York. She is going trough Rough times and do not want to be poor.

There is nothing wrong with using the C word when you're sitting around with a group of girl friends. What Lisa said to Taylor was on TV, she said she knew they weren't always the best of friends but she was there for her. What is wrong with that? I think you and Taylor are looking for stuff to pick on Lisa about. pft...

Some of the "ladies" should not be surprised by the comments from the viewers. Money can't buy you class is very fitting for this group.

Kyle, as I stated before, I think it was cool to bring up the "we're not friends" comment to Lisa, but as a friend there's a certain grace that has to be given when you're in the middle of two women that obviously care about you and vice versa but don't care much about each other. It's a very delicate balancing act for us women. Taylor's fragile but she's a strong lady so maybe you need to calm that protective nature a bit and let Taylor use her own voice for a change. Your comment about thinking Brandi is a slut was foul. All of you ladies have said COLORFUL things on and off camera so cut the woman some slack. You can come across pretty blunt at times too so you should be able to empathize. Now if you simply don't like the woman, own it and move forward because as you stated, everyone doesn't have to be friends nor like every person.
