Kyle Richards

Kyle reflects on her daughter (and her niece) growing up, and on Lisa and Adrienne's tensions.

on Nov 19, 20120

Seeing Kim with my niece Kimberly getting ready for her prom was touching. I can only imagine how Kim feels seeing her youngest growing up and becoming an adult. I know it must be bittersweet. It seems like our kids are growing at the speed of light. I want them all to slow down!!!

Alexia learning to drive was very stressful and at times comical. Parallel parking is one thing, but actually driving on the road is an entirely different story! Most of the time I sat in the passenger seat in crash position. Well, MY version of crash position: feet on the ceiling. Alexia would say, "Mom, you make me so nervous!" And I would be thinking "I make YOU nervous?!?" I know it's such an exciting time for kids when they start to drive, but for a parent it's terrifying. I dread the thought of her driving alone!

Yolanda's home is so beautiful. I love it! The refrigerator is CRAZY. I have seen a lot of things in this town but not a walk-in refrigerator! Color coordinated vegetables!?! With all the kids in my house that would last two seconds. Fun to look at though.

The evening was really fun. I loved all the music and everyone sitting around like that, having fun and singing.

I couldn't help but to laugh when I was watching the scene with you and your daughter in the car after she passed her driver's test. I went through the same thing with my son. Hang in there! You are one of my favorite RYOB cast member.  You are the one who is down to earth and compassionate.  You call it like you see it!  A lot of people are duped by Yolanda now but she is already boring to me; too judge mental and pretentious.  She practically chased her guests out of her house after the 1st RHOB party because she wanted to go to bed early.

No one is listening to Yolanda? Really? You must mean at your table, because everyone out here is listening and what she is saying is not only truthful but smart. You are a contrived mess who is good at bashing people over the head to make yourself look good however, it only makes you look like a bully. You may want to consider staying out of everyone business and concentrate on your own, obviously too late for this year but if and we are unlucky enough to have you again next season, you may want to consider changing your ways, I am hoping this is not your persona however, I believe it is and you can do nothing about it.

re yolanda's dinner party:  you appear so full of yourself.  that you think you are so great.  you are the first one begin singing.....way too loudly.......you must think you have an awesome voice.......first one to get up and dance......i think we were lucky you didn't toss david foster's grammys off the piano so you could get up on there to do one of your often seen splits.  you are always first to do anything to show off.  settle down, you aren't all that.

Just a little side note Kyle.  When you walked into the restaurant and asked your sister where she was seating everybody, your reponse should NOT have been "good" followed by you blowing past her to the opposite end of the table, you should have said something like "great, I'd love to sit next to you!"  Sheesh, do you ever get a clue?  You make yourself appear to be so self-centered!

You annoy me to NO end. Do you ever stop talking? Ever! Seriously. And your friend Taylor . . . Wonder how long it will be before she starts hitting on your husband behind your back. You have to know that is her motive. It's so obvious. Instead of being in everyonelse's business, it would do you well to tend to your own busines at home with hubby  girlfriend,  before your friend Taylor does it for you.

kyle, are you kidding me? your behavior at kims getaway is the exact reason the veiwer are annoyed with you and rightful so, giggling like a brat because lisa got the twin beds, all of you acted so inmature, there are so many ppl who dont even have a bed and you woman should be ashamed of yourselves, and furthermore it wouldnt have kild any of you to go the weekend without booze, and would have been respectul and a great way to show kim ow proud of her you all were, even though you have made it obvius hat it isnt about kim it is all about kyle...

Kyle, I love the way you have decorated your home- AMAZING! And I am crazy envious of your beautiful hair. Please share with the viewers what treatments you use. I also appreciate how much nicer you have been on the show. The mean girl role was ugly and I am sure did not set a great example for your daughters. Please be a friend to Brandi as much as you can. She deserves to have honest and loyal friends who will also pull her aside and let her know when she is going overboard, but will also build her up and support her...and even sometimes stand up for her. She may use some inappropriate language at times, but she seems very loyal and lots of fun.

"Of course there was some tension between Lisa, Adrienne, and Paul"....Yes, tension that you instigated last season in your cruel attempt to turn Adrienne against Lisa. You are not fooling anyone, you're a mean girl!

Jeez, what's with all the petty hate against Kyle?  This is a tv show, entertainment, one hour of condensed, sometimes contrived, almost always exaggerated drama from these women's lives.  I think Kyle holds herself quite well in this group.  Love her!  How would all YOU haters stack up under that microscope and editing that is out of your control? At least Kyle's not telling anyone to shut the F up at a dinner party.  Brandi's making everyone look classy at this point, even Taylor.

I'm beginning to think that Yolanda will be the new RHOBH favorite...and that you could quite possibly be a tad jealous.

Kyle, I wish you would feel less responsible for Kim. Even putting substance abuse aside, she is not one to own up to her responsibilities or actions. She is not a good sister to you; and so obviously is super jealous of you. Until you can let her go, you are the one between the two of you who will suffer; not she. 

 

I love you lots, and admire you very much. I just don't understand the negative comments about you. They make no sense. Ah, but to each her own -- stay true to yourself and please, let Kim go her own way. She will always hurt you if you let her. I even think that she enjoys hurting you, usually passive aggressively. Your heart is on your sleeve and she knows how to push your buttons. I can just see Mauricio nodding his head at these words. Also, it must be very hard for him to see her hurt you again and again and not to interfere (because you are holding on). Please, let her go; stop allowing her to hurt you.

no one is listening to Yolanda?? yes, we were listening and only wishing you would. You are so shamefully smug and outrageously conceited! If what goes around comes around, you are headed for a nasty fall. Who, but the worst of snobs, could be so petty about which room they are staying in while in a beautiful resort? geez-what would be "good enough" for the likes of you? Really, do you watch the show? Do you not see yourself as we do--constantly stir, stir, stirring up adversity! Your performance and need to be a leading lady is pathetic and increasingly hard to stomach.

I think if you cared about your sister you would not be a drunk at "HER WEEKEND" very loving of you.

Jesus H. Christ, Kyle!  Can anyone else have a moment? Your laugh has to be the loudest, your conversation has to be the important one, your cartwheel has to be the best. Putting on makeup at the dinner table is classless. Your imitations of Lisa's beautiful accent are old...and I see in the preview that we will soon be blessed with yet ANOTHER incident of a grown woman in her 40's trying to outdo others with her gymnastics prowess. Don't you get tired of trying to outdo everyone? You comments are not always funny. You do not always look pretty. You are not always right. You are no more important than anyone else. You and Taylor should just go off on your own and fight out your patheticness to the death. Two pathetic peas in a self-absorbed little pod. Perfect!

I have liked you from the beginning.  You are a beautiful woman, with a loving husband and wonderful children.  I always know how someone truly is by the way their kids act/behave and you have done a wonderful job.  I also know you would not have been able to keep your marriage as fun and loving with such a "hot" man, as long as you have if you were a bad person.  When it comes to the ladies, you do seem to want to be with the one your with, and that in itself will cause drama.  Try to be as forth coming and honest with them in the moment as you are at the reunion.  I actually thought however, you were a little mean girl at the last reunion, so maybe just take it down a notch.

 

It must be extremely difficult to go through what you are going through with Kim on national tv.  I too have someone in my family who is chemically dependent and it is extremely difficult to let go of those feelings from when they were acting out, when they are sober.  It has been about 4 or 5 yrs now though, (sober) with mine and I can tell you it does get better.

I just scrolled down to read a few of the other blogs after I posted my own. I am utterly shocked at how many call you a bully against your sister. If anything Kyle, you were an enabler. You TRIED helping Kim, but only Kim could help herself. That was your only downfall - that, and the fact that you 'loved her to a fault' .....Ignore all these comments about applying make-up at the table and so forth, most should know that Bravo could edit out most of that, but usually they (Bravo) keeps that stuff added in to give cause to light up these boards. I swear, I don't like using the term "haters", but so many of these comments that are being left are simply by JEALOUS, ENVIOUS haters!

Kyle, your a REAL lady! Your fun to watch, your beautiful & for the most part I think you represent what we'd all like to achieve in life, good family, wonderful husband, beautiful children & so on. The situation with your sister Kim is real for us all. We all have a family member or two who struggles with some sort of issue whether it be alcohol, drugs, physical abuse, etc.

By no means are you perfect, but that's exactly what makes us like & appreciate you so much. Your not busy trying to hide behind some veil of lies. Your straight & upfront & that's what I adore about you. It is a beauty that is well beyond your face. Stay true ....... I tune in each week to see you & admire what all you have going for yourself, and then also to watch most of the other gals PRETEND to be something their not. Yolanda is the perfect example of everything your not!! I suppose that's precisely what makes for interesting television though.

Why do you always apply makeup at the dinner table? That's twice I saw you do that. So tacky!!

I watched the show and it looks like you are already starting your hate on yolanda.  All she was doing was telling the truth that all you girls are acting like..GIRLS..and highschoolers at that.  I have noticed that you really hate being called out when you act ignorant and you start your b/s to get the spotlight off yourself.  Did you really think it was necessary to do the splits on a table at that party last season?  Who does that?  If this is what the rich do, I will pass because I prefer to act appropriately.  There is times and places for fun and you seem to be confused on when its appropriate and when its not.  Leave your sister alone, now that she is trying to improve herself, you feel the need to always bully her or guilt her....do you want her to start drinking again...hmmmm...maybe it seems.  I don't know how you snagged such a nice man as your husband but some men would think you were fake, vain and more trouble than your worth. Who cares that you were a hilton...that would embarass me considering some of their frontpage news.

You are personality minus. You could take lessons on being a lady from Yolanda. shameful behavior. You may not be listening to Yolanda, but a lot of us are and we also hear your LOWLY comments. You and Taylor should CLEAN YOUSELVES UP!

I think you should grow up and stop acting like a 16 year old. leave that to your children. i can't understand how a group of women in the 40's act like stupid school children....you are not the centre of the universe, in fact, you are the one encouraging gossip and issues. get a life.....

Am I the only one that thinks Kyle is such an instigator and such a bully? I mean in every social event she finds a target to make fun of. She reminds me of those mean, narcissistic, self centered, big mouth, bullies in high school. She is definitely a lucky girl to have such a good husband and good daughters, but her big mouth and rude faces are so annoying to watch sometimes. Grow up "Ms I own this town"...really??

As soon as I see your face for an upcoming segment, I hit the fast forward button. I cannot stand egocentric, destructive and mean spirited people, all of which you are. The ultimate in snobbery, I really think you should take a look at how you treat people.

Kyle darling!  pls stop applying make-up (eyeliner)! at the dinner table - we know you don't have class and are noveau riche, but stop constantly reminding us - as viewers we are supposed to want to emulate you, but you keep reminding us how tacky and vapid you are...and stop playing both ends against the middle and pick a side!

You just had to get your little dig in to your sister Kim didn't you? (upon arriving at the location she picked out and planned for everyone to enjoy).  Your behavior is appaling and abusive. I am soo glad that the world is seeing you for who you really are. Kim is a KIND person, you on the other hand, are nothing but a narcissict abusive opportunist.

 

 What kind of a person kicks someone, their own sister, when they are down ? YOU DO.

 

THANK GOODNESS SHE NO LONGER ACCEPTS YOUR BEHAVIOR, AND SEES YOU FOR EXACTLY WHO YOU ARE! VYLE.

 Notice how she is waiting for Kim to post her blog first before she "Kyle" dominates last? My gawd, is there ever an end to this crap? When is Kyle going to get it? Kim is and always will be the STAR of that family. And there's nothing she can do about that. Its not Kim's fault the camera is naturally attracted to her, and Kyle has to fling people under the bus and out of the way, fighting tooth and nail for it. I feel like I'm watching an old epsiode of the Brady Bunch, where Jan is becoming so demented and hearing voices that say "Marsha, Marsha, Marsha...Hey, its not Marsha's fault, and its not Kim's fault. Audiences members always swing towards the lovely kind hearted.

 

I don't hate Kyle, I just dislike her personality. She is not someone I'd say, hey, lets go shopping, then out for a cocktail. But I do appreciate the fact she loves her husband, and children...treating them with respect. Wish she would start being that way with others. Oh well, I can dream can't I?

 @cupcakedivaAre you watching the same show? Have you been watching from the very beginning?  Are you really serious?  Take a look at all the comments.  I mean you are entitled to your opinion, free speeck and all but...seriously you want to call Brandi out for the f bomb at the table.  These ladies say it all the time!

 Are we watching the same show?  I like Kyle but when it comes to Kim she is so obviously controlling.  I'd also have to say that Kyle needs to think a little less about herself, it can't always be about what she needs and wants.

Sweeteena1018

No she does not see herself as we do, which is why she has not changed her nasty behavior since the reunion.  But I am sure her teenage daughters and friends read her blogs and tell her what we think which is why she blogs late.  She likes wait to see what is said on the other blogs and then she blogs accordinly.  She's very deliberate in what she does.  Which is why I can't stand this woman.

@WhoDoesThat Right on! Like the smug look on Kyle's face at reunion 2, when she called Brandi, ANGRY SPICE. You could tell she thought she was being super clever. She does things like that a lot. Trying to compete with Lisa probably. Lisa has a very clever, DRY sense of humor. Kyle is no match, but she tries, relentlessly.

 I'm sorry but I never saw Kyle trying to help her sister.  I only saw Kyle exposing her sister and using her for camera time.  Very sad.  And, from the previews, looks likes she's going to really help her sister by getting wasted!  Who does that?  She knows Kim is in a fragile place but just doesn't care.

I ( like most of the bloggers) like Lisa and Yolanda, who are both FAR more beautiful, HAVE much more money, and Class that Kyle couldn't even begin to understand.

 I am not a fan of Kyle, but am of her sister. However, I am not jealous or envious of Kyle in anyway shape or form. Am not understanding your reasoning?

 

So, what you are saying is if say the neighbor down the street is a loud, obnoxious, attention seeking bully, who always rolls their eyes, and says catty things about others, and I chose to not like that person and not want to be around or even see them, expecially on my TV screen, that makes me jealous?

 

hmmmm, strange logic there Missydeb65

 @DebbieinPhila Really.   Tacky it is!    I was  actually surprised  to see that.   Very basic manners.    I'm glad you mentioned   that.    Kyle  seems to be part of the never-stop-grooming trend   which includes  continual  hair-arranging and on a talk show  like "Watch What Happens Live",   watching yourself the whole time on the monitor,   and re-positioning  yourself   at  improved angles.   Go on t.v. to watch yourself on t.v.!   Think of the media celebrities   of the past arranging  their hair on camera;     i don't think so-   it would have been considered  undignified and  kind of unfocused.
