Kyle Richards

Kyle exposes Lisa's hypocrisy and Yolanda's standoffish attitude.

on Mar 25, 20130

I had been dreading this day for months. Fighting and rehashing every disagreement we've all had gives me anxiety. All of our faces looked so tense. Especially mine!

It was strange that Camille and Adrienne were not there. I was disappointed that Adrienne didn't show up to explain her side of things. When Brandi first made the comment, everyone felt bad for Adrienne. Then she stopped coming around and lawyers got involved and that started swaying people’s opinions. I wish she would have shown up and let her voice be heard. We all felt let down. I don't think she has handled the situation well from the beginning. If she had, there would have been a very different outcome. It is sad that she won't be back for Season 4. We all went through a lot together and the good times we shared will be missed. Now, on to what happened at the Reunion...

I guess we will start with Yolanda, since that's where Andy started.

Yolanda and I didn't really spend any time together this season. Although she was always invited to the girls’ and my events, she didn't always show up. I had no problem with Yolanda and thought she seemed nice, although cool and standoffish. Then I heard she was saying things about me behind my back.

I don't. I feel so sorry for lisa, thinking that Kyle was her friend all of this time. Then, finding out that she wasn't. She never, ever stands up for her. It's sad. Brandi and Yolanda are the only ones there for Lisa. And she just met them both. They are newer friends and are the only ones she could count on this season.

Have to ask, "Do you ever take responsibility for anything?"

Can you explain why you told Taylor that Lisa preys on the weak? WTF? You are so transparent.

I feel that Kyle is the only one you can trust! I think that Yolanda is to smug along with Lisa! They both lied how they never talk about anyone behind the ladies back! The constantly do! lisa has changed so much in the last season! She definitely has tried to make Kyle jealous of Brandi! Brandi is not worth the frustration! Brandi is just a troublemaker and such a suck up! If that is what Lisa wants as her friend, let them have each other! They are not worth it!!!

Kyle,

 

I too am one of those who would just as soon stay out of the conflict.  Some of the fighting that goes on is sooooo unnecessary.  I have watched all three years and in that time have found you to be extremely easy to get along with...not one to go out of her way to pick a fight, but quite the contrary.  I didn't think Lisa was that way either, but it seems she is changing a bit.  Brandy has definitely been an instigator and never have appreciated her.  I don't think she's good for Lisa at all. 

 

Anyway, just wanted to send a little support your way.  Good luck in the future!

Kyle, the game night attack on Brandi and last years attack on Lisa at the reunion really threw me. I adored you until those moments and I couldn't wrap my brain around your behavior. Now, I know it's plain jealousy. Maybe, to you it's a popularity contest. I don't know... You seem to have the ideal life. I don't get it. Ill give it to you for your loyalty to Faye but she has been a detriment to you and your reputation on this show. As loyal as i am, I would not allow my closest friend to behave so badly in my home or as my invited guests in another home. You come across as an opportunist and you cannot own up to your poor behavior without pointing fingers at others. Its too bad considering I think you do have many really good qualities but they are over shadowed by the bad ones.

Kyle you are the closest to real that this show can get...i mean there are things you do that are questionable at times...like how you handle kim...like i don't understand why you would put her on speaker when she was calling about her nose surgery...etc...however with that said I feel the other girls are worst because they are two faced...think they are real and not....Lisa talking about somebody coming for her last season...well she was definitely prepared to come at you and your husband...it was just stupid and they looked stupid...keep doing what you doing...don't let them get to you...i mean at the end of the day you don't need Lisa to be your friend so speak...and keep it moving...don't try to make up with her for what? keep in mind karma and Lisa will get a lesson in true friendship soon enough.

Seriously Kyle get off the "I'm being punished for last seasons reunion and not defending Lisa"  Not only did you not defend Lisa then but you NEVER defended her at any time this season.  With friends like you who needs enemies.  Makes sense to me know why you would be friends with someone like Faye.  I know this is wishful thinking but I really hope Bravo doesn't bring you back.

Kyle you are wonderful .. Brandie is garbage .. Don't waste another minute on her

Kyle,

I can understand why Lisa changed her feelings for you..you didn't back her up  like she did for you on the earlier seasons.  Then you called her out in public for being like "Bobby Fisher" playing chess moves..and said she was manipulative.  She had a reason for the change..just because you said you were sorry doesn't mean she can change her feelings after that.  I don't think you should expect anything differently. I think you made a big error aligning yourself with Faye Resnick..she is a witch with a B..she thinks she makes these great pronouncements and all she does is alienate people..Dump her!  About Kim, I think sometimes you hurt her more than help her..you even suggest to people that she is "messing up"..I know you have a lifetime of dealing with this..but you don't have to call attention to it!

Kyle, you are one of my favorites. I think you come from a good place. Lisa, Yolanda and Brandi seem to team together as the mean girls by the end of the season, which stinks because I did like Lisa and Yolanda! Lisa has not had your back just as many times as you haven't has hers so I'm not sure why she's not even giving you a chance at friendship. Some people can only have one or two "best friends" at a time. And we'll Brandi just kisses ass so it makes sense they are so close. Drives me nuts that Lisa keeps playing victim. I hope you continue to be supportive of Kim as she navigates sobriety. Relax... Support her. Can't wait to see you next season.. Maybe by then Brandi's lips will be sewn shut :)

Thank you for being a part of this show!  Your made it fun, and entertaining!  I think your great!  I dont understand Yolanda ( I like her but dont get her opinions here) and although I like Brandy what she said about you was disgusting!  

 

I guess I just want you know that there are many viewers of the show who have read the blogs/comments this season in bewilderment! 

 

I hope you return to the show but if you dont I totally understand!  ( If you dont though, I wont be watching! :)

 

All the best!

I want to set Kyle straight about something.  When Kyle and Yolanda and Kim were in the finale show, both Kim and Kyle attacked Yolanda saying that she was "bad-mouthing" Lisa by saying that she was fake,  a phony, and more or less that she didn't care about Kim and Kim and Kyle  both agreed about the comments they said Yolanda said, and that she denied.  Yolanda was right..she didn't say that...!!!  If you listen to that part again, you will see that KIM was the one who said that..and Kyle agreed that Yolanda said it.  The only thing that Yolanda said was that who called about her to see how she was...and that was Yolanda...Kyle and Kim looked foolish about saying this falsehood.  Yolanda is above that sort of thing.  Kyle was wrong in accusing her!

I have never watched an uglier person on the inside as Faye, When she told Brandi a borrowed Chanel bag doesn't make you a lady and you said nothing to Faye only confirmed what all have known all along. Yet you still call Faye a kind person. Watching this season wasn't just 'Mean Girls/Mean Women' this season was proof no matter how much money, brand new cars, liposuction, store launches, vodka lines etc...only adds burdens and all come with a huge emotional price that makes a hole in your hearts that no amount of Chanel Bags can fill.

Atta girl!  Wow, you are gorgeous!!!  You stayed professional and mostly calm.  I have a sister like Kim and I adore her.  she may need a bit more attention than you do as well as TLC.  Sometimes she will want it and sometimes she wants you out of her business.  Such is life....

The other ladies well, Brandi is being the best Brandi she can be at the moment.  She isn't in your relm of commitment and devotion.  People will come around.  My mother in law is Lisa's age and she surrounds herself with beautiful young people as well.  Outspoken with low maturity levels.  Maybe she feels like a mentor to her.

You are pretty perfect the way you are.  Take care of your fam and that husband of yours

Kyle, I agree with you wholeheartedly.  I really don't understand why Lisa felt the need for you to speak up for her.  After all, she was there to speak for herself.  I understood that the only reason you spoke up for Adrienne was because she wasn't there to speak for herself.  You are absolutely right in not getting involved in an argument between two friends.  I loved the relationship you and Lisa had but I also agree that being in a relationship with Lisa is like "playing in a chess match".  Lisa is a very smart and intelligent woman and you have to be on your toes with her and she is very manipulative.   I think it's despicable of Lisa and Ken to insinuate that you and Mauricio are playing people for business/monetary purposes but perhaps that 's the way they operate (cozying up to people so that they will patronize their restaurants).  As I said, I enjoyed the relationship you and Lisa had so I hope you both can get beyond this mess.  The ball is in Lisa's court so stop apologizing and continue to be the class act you are.  As for Brandi, WHEW, what a troll!!!  It was very honorable for Mauricio to apologize to her for the incident at the Morocaan dinner but I really don't see where he was wrong in anything her said to her.  She says it was the tone in which he spoke but what was wrong with that?  And why is it okay for her to cuss at people???  And why is it okay for her to talk about people behind their backs and put their business out in the streets?  She is a mean spirited, foul-mouthed, classless, bimbo that I pray will meet her match one day.  Don't make the mistake of ever thinking of her as a friend.  She is NOT!   She is all for herself.  Unfortunately, I believe she's using Lisa  just as Cedric did.  Keep your head up and continue to take care of your husband, children, sister Kim and most importantly yourself.  Good luck with your store.  God bless!

Dear Kyle, 

 

I think you are beautiful, intelligent and sensitive and I admire your relationship with your husband and children while living in integrity.  I also get why you are so worried about your sister Kim and what Brandi said about you wanting Kim to fail, couldn't be further from the truth!  Because you care so much, naturally you are very worried about your sister and wonder if she is staying sober.  I too sensed something was off with Kim in Paris (on the balcony) and I think you were right to be concerned and voice that concern.  You know your sister better than most and you know when something doesn't feel right.  Always listen to that gut feeling.  Kim might hear it better if you speak from your feelings like "Sis, I feel scared & worried sometimes that you're not staying sober because I don't want to lose you, which is my deepest fear.  I love and support you and want the best for you".

 Kyle, just how much Al-anon or therapy have you had to deal with your sister's alcoholism? I ask because it appears you don't have a CLUE about it.

You say you've been dealing with her and her disease for years and years, yet you 'use' her problems as an excuse to pity yourself, justify your distrust and play victim.

If you truly love her, you'd go out of your 'comfort zone' and LEARN how to truly be supportive - for her sake as well as yours. You are just as sick as she is - you just don't REALIZE it!

It's quite childish that if Lisa is mad at someone, everyone else better be, or they are next on the smear campaign.  Lisa is a the puppet master and her allies are the puppets.  There doesn't seem to be any real friendships around her - just people who will tell her she is right.  You are no longer one of those people - so she doesn't need you!   Now you and your husband are her next victims - and she will probably become friends soon with an old enemy of yours.

I am surprised to see you still resort to lying. You are so full of it.

This show is obviously not for you. Go back to the 60's, where you belong.

You did a good thing by exposing Yolanda's fakeness. She called you out by saying you're katty and then booya, you call her out with saying those bad things about Lisa. WooHoo. Adrienne was my favorite, just as you and Kim have.

Kyle, I am shocked to see the way you were treated on the reunion show. You are my favorite. I love Lisa too but i don't like the way things are going now. When yolonda came on i thought she was going to be prim and propper and not really fit in. Then to see her side with Brandi was a shock too. Then to hear her lie was an even bigger shock cause i thought she said she was a straight shooter but thats really not the case after all. Maybe she also DON"T remember things as she accused Kim of. Brandi is kissing up to them to see what she can get. I believe Brandi can be a good friend to people if she wants to be but it has to come from her heart not somewhere else. Brandi has problems and its easier to get someone else before they get her. I thought at one point she was making an effort to open up and be kind to people and try to have an honest friendship and be sincere then its back to no where again. I really don't know what happened. She is lucky Lisa took her under her wing i thought that she would transform Brandi into a lady, i guess we will see. I really don't understand Lisa's need for you to defend her as you i agree she does the job well on her own. I will always be a fan of yours. I got your back!

Kyle, you are still the classiest of the Housewives and your description of Brandi's actions is in check.  She is the type that hurls insults to take the negative attention off herself.  It's actually getting quite old and I cannot believe Lisa and Yolanda cannot see her for what she is.  Why else would someone bring up everything negative about other cast members except to take attention off themselves.  She's already went after Kim, Adrienne and Taylor so the others should really watch their backs.  Keep your head high knowing that you haven't stooped to her level.

Kyle, my heart goes out to you and Mauricio after watching part 2 of the union. I think Mauricio is a wonderful, kindhearted person and very undeserving of the attacks he has endured very likely at Lisa's instigation and urging. Brandi's comment to you regarding Kim was nothing short of despicable and has completely confirmed my opinion of her. I hope you stop groveling to Lisa because she enjoys it way too much and will never, ever welcome you into her inner circle again. That in my opinion, is a blessing not a curse. You absolutely told the truth about Yolanda trashing Lisa  in Paris and it is mind-boggling to read on these blogs that people think you were lying. I guess they missed the episode. I found it interesting (and I believe, unintentionally revealing) that Lisa instructed Yolanda to look at last year's reunion and your behavior. Clear evidence Lisa was poisoning the well against you from the get go. Forget about Lisa and her lapdogs. You need real friends. I could not believe how Lisa & Ken said they "don't want to work with Mauricio." How quickly things change. I thought Ken and Mauricio got along. I guess Ken got his instructions from Lisa the Ice Queen to freeze you both out. You are far better off without the Ice Queen and her lapdogs any way. Best wishes and hugs to you and Mauricio. See you next season, I hope.

 @ralph0106  I hope they keep her. She is exposing herself. She'll always be the jealous, spoiled little sister of Kim no matter how hard she tries to come across as the level headed one.

 Brandi is wonderful, loving , kind, forgiving, honest. And she has a ton of integrity because she apologizes when wrong and owns her own crap. Unlike the Witchard sisters who blame everything on everyone else and lie about apologizing. Kyle's way of apologizing is "We need to move past that".

 @RozM Well said about Kim!  Kyle may have a lifetime of dealing with Kim's disease, BUT it's not about Kyle!!!  It's about Kim and giving her support, you know "Having her back!"

 @Dmomma98 Yes!  Lisa plays the victim.  Poor me, Kyle never stands up for me.  Lisa is a big girl and needs to fight her own battles.

 @Dmomma98

Lisa has not played victim one time. She has just made it CLEAR why she doesn't trust Kyle anymore and why they can't be close like they use to be. Kyle keeps bringing up why can't we be friends like before and poor Lisa has to explain herself once again, over and over. Kilye and Kim are the only ones playing victims. WOW I guess perception is delusional when your as dis functional as the Richard sisters.

@RozM , YoYo was trying to sooth crazy as best she could. In that same scene it's Kyle & Kim bad mouthing Lisa. Kyle saying she was over being punished blah,blah.. Then next on the tower Kyle is doing her tearful "I want to be your friend,but its ok for me to bad mouth you because its how I FEEL" routine. Like Lisa said, "Im over it"

I do believe that the ages of the women are 40 - 52, so Lisa is not surrounding herself with younger people.

 @twiddledeedum  @Sassy58 Everyone on these blogs is entitled to an opinion. That's why we post. We certainly don't expect to have a person with a different opinion reply to every post we make that they don't agree with. I like Kyle. You like Brandi. I don't care who YOU like.

to therealgirl: I agree with you. Kyle is the only woman not talking about their wealth, houses, botox, plastic surgery. When you see her it all about her kids, husband and her business. These women are phony. You are on the right channel. Kyle is always expected to be something to all of these women, even though they are all grown. Kim, is a grown woman and when Kyle tried to talk about the guy she was going to marry, she asked Kyle to just support her and she did. Lisa wants a pint of blood to be her friend. Kyle is the only woman on this show that does not need their hands held. All of these women need something and one person cannot be there for everyone. A person would go insance having to fix all that is going on in this show. With these women, someone wants your undying loyalty, another wants you to speak up for her even though you are right there, family memeber is upset because you made bad decisions as an adult, but you need more, then there is the please control your friend. Is all of this real?  I cannot control what my friends say, let alone my grandson. Noone has that kind of control.

 @JessMare  @RHONYCmandi Brandi is such a victim. She's the one who screamed STFU and threw a tantrum like the child she is. I wish he hadn't apoligized at the reunion show. He didn't have a thing to apoligize for. He was calm and adult. Trying to give a petulant child good advice is a no win situation.

 @CarmenE  @JessMare Love me some Ken. But it's a HOUSEWIVES show. These guys are just along for the ride. From what I hear, Yo isn't going to be on next season and if I had to guess, David probably asked her to bow out. This show was really toxic this year. Embarrassing to the husbands, maybe. Mauricio has a business to run and having his wife on reality TV screaming at her "friends" probably isn't putting his family or his business in the best light. I don't know, maybe it swings both ways and the show gives him MORE business. Who knows. I think he's been calm and adult and yes, he has to shmooze people. He's in a competitive, high money business in Beverly Hills. How else will Kyle afford her Berkins????
