Kyle Richards

Kyle reflects on the many misunderstandings going on in Beverly Hills.

on Nov 8, 20120

The Villa Blanca party was beautiful. Some of the girls hadn't seen each other for a while so there was some tension. Brandi and I are actually in a much better place then before. When Yolanda said that Brandi said she had slept with everyone in town, I said I wasn't surprised Brandi SAID that. Not that she DID that. I repeated that twice to make that clear. It seems she didn't take it like that. That happens a lot around here. Just like Yolanda MAY have taken what Brandi said literally and Brandi says she was joking. Each person will interpret it as they see it. And so begins the rocky roads of Beverly Hills!

My sister Kim and I love each other but still clash at times. I wasn't angry that she didn't want to come to Portia's party. Just a little hurt. It's important to me that my family is a part of Portia's life. My older children had birthday parties with all their aunt's and cousin's surrounding them. Always. Because I had Portia much later than my other children, she doesn't have young cousins to be with. Kim's kids do spend a lot of time with Portia. She loves them and thinks of them more like an older sibling or aunt. It's important to me to maintain those relationships. I figured a couple hours of their day would be nice and they only live five minutes away.

That aside, I love seeing my sister looking healthy, happy, and strong. I am beyond proud of her and pray everyday that she stays this way.

This season is going to be intense at times, but also a lot of fun! I look forward to sharing those times with you!

XO,
Kyle

Kyle, Would love to have the answer to wolfenac's Q about your pretty yellow blouse you've worn this season during interviews--designer, etc.

Thanks so much!

Kyle, I was so pleased that you walked away from Taylor bashing Brandi. I wish you would have said "O gosh I think she was just joking" and then walked away. I don't think that would of made anyone mad. I am sure you have watched the first 2 seasons carefully more than once so I can't understand why you are so chummy with Taylor. I watched the first 2 seasons just the other day and Taylor has started every single confrontation that has ever been on the show and managed to turn it into the Taylor show last season. I know this show is only a fraction of your lives but as a mom Taylor should care about nothing other than making sure her daughter is ok. Instead, it seems like she is obsessed with finding a rich man and having social status in Beverly Hills. Like she seems to be obsessed with Beverly Hills. Watching Taylor with Mauricio at the fund raiser made me think she would pounce on him in a heart beat. I hope you are smart enough and already know what I am saying. Taylor is no good

Hi Kyle,

Who makes that pretty yellow lace blouse you were wearing during your interviews during this last episode or portia's party?  it was so pretty!

Now that I think about it, I'm glad that Brandi and Lisa have become close friends. That way they can have each other's backs as true, caring friends do. I don't understand your kind of friendship.

uh u r the one Kyle causing the MOST drama & being 2-faced..maybe time for ur reality check....might need to include ur hubby! Why do u feel the need to always be front & center?

Why did you tell Adrienne not to hold her breath regarding an apology from Lisa but then say that you don't think Lisa owes her an apology in this situation? Why not say I don't think LIsa owes you an apology? Are you afraid Adrienne might then get mad at you? As Lisa's friend, you never have her back. I am surprised she took you back so quick when you were clearly against her at the reunion. There is probably more than meets the eye with events off camera, but I hope this season you start acting like a true friend and sister.

Kyle you need to stop mixing business with pleasure when it comes to your friendships. I think this explains your phoney two-faced behaviour with some of them.

Kyle you showed your fans the real you last season. Your attempts at reuniting Adrienne and Lisa for dinner is just a ploy so that  you can get more camera time. You are not sincere about your intentions and I was happy when Lisa told you to butt out. It was funny to see you pretend you weren't aware that Dana disliked Brandi even Brandi gave you a funny look. You walked away when your BFF Taylor was talking about Brandi because you didn't want to be a part of the gossip...really? you aren't fooling anyone. You are the calculating one, not Lisa.

Kyle, Why didn't you set the record straight when Taylor kept repeating the story about Brandi that you knew wasn't true? You talk about Brandi being two-faced. Are you friends with Brandi or not?

You need to stop bullying your sister Kim! Also, stop being two faced!

I am so excited to watch you all again. Its the highlight of my week. Im prepared for the Drama between Brandi and Taylor. Honestly I cant believe she thinks she (Taylor) can go head on  with Brandi. Im glad that you walked away when she (Tayor) tried to bring you in the slash talking about Brandi. Good move.  I adore all of you with an exception of Taylor, she really doesnt fit with this group.

You are so fake.  I cannot wait until Lisa REALLY tells you where to go...

It's hard to understand how you choose your loyalties - you always back up Taylor who is offensive to so many people on so many levels, yet you constantly trash talk Lisa behind her back and encourage others to do so as well.  You've really got that mean girl thing going for you.

I would hope that at your age that you would know to not get involved in Adrianne & Lisa's issues...  It is 'not of YOUR business!  Additionally, I don't understand why you keep harping on your sister Kim, always thinking the worst, demanding, etc.  You're much to controlling & IMO should follow your sister Kathy's tune & believe in Kim thus allowing her to be herself & whether you agree or not, respect her decisions on which events she will attend...  Allow Kim to heal.....

I realize that saying one thing to Lisa & another to Adrianne & putting Kim on the spot gives you more of a storyline, thus camera time, however, perhaps it's time to take the high road especially after last seasons reunion ..........     Will give you props for faux befriending Brandi although it's unfortunate that you & Lisa will never have the relationship you once had.....

Poor you.  While I can see that you have a sense of protecting everyone's feelings, you have to be realistic enough (at this age---no shade) to know that is a faulty premise.  Everyone feels as they do, better to stay integral and direct.  Of course I have no personal information, but it seems like this is part of your issues with many people: your sister (you hush your true feelings, then passive-aggressively require too much of her),  Lisa (you are intimidated by her presence and highly defined separation of self, yet you cannot emulate what you cannot imitate (think about that one), as well as Taylor, Adrienne, Brandi, Ken, and dare I say...(you know who)

I still can't believe people live like this when so many people are struggling. I'm not saying not to live a nice lifestyle,but the parties and the outings just seem so over the top. The thing that bothers me most is no one really seems happy. You are all brats! Kyle maybe you can give back to some of us Superstorm Sandy victims and not think about yourself for once.

 

Who wears the style of dresses these women had on for a 4 yo birthday party? Like does this really go on? Or is just because they know they will be on TV? Just seems so fake to me!!

Please stop with your attempts to orchestrate a reconciliation with Adrienne. You look like Don King trying to promote a fight. You better than anyone know the violent drama that can arise out of nowhere. Portia's birthday party was not the place to to get these ladies together. Lisa and Adrienne are too mature to cause that type of scene, but they need privacy not an instigator or mediator. On a positive note, I will give you kudos for staying out of the Brandi gossip that Taylor started. Her behavior is deplorable and I commend you for not going there with her.

Aww Kyle, you are def not a good actress, cause it is soooo obvious how truly fake you are.  I still dont get why Lisa would put her trust back in you, but if I were you I would be kissing the ground Lisa walked on and not afraid to stick up for Lisa in front of the other ladies seeing what you've done to her.  Nah, Kyle, youll get caught playing the fence, especially with most viewers who can see through your facade!

Kyle-  Lisa and Adrienne's feud is NONE of your business, as Lisa said.  Ms. Maloof owes Lisa a BIG apology for her nasty reunion accusations, which I'm sure she will never get, since Ms. Maloof is perfect and never wrong!  I'm so glad Lisa told you not to do the "get-together" at your house.  You live for drama and I think that's the ONLY reason you wanted to host it.  Butt out Kyle!!!

Yolanda wasn't the one who took it wrong.  Your BFF was.  Maybe you should have spoke up when your sidekick Taylor was lying about it.

 

You're passive aggressive - cruel to your sister.  Then tell us all how you love her and want the best?  Please....

 

You're so shallow..

Hi Kyle,

 

On Sunday's "Watch What Happens Live" you said you use a hair care vitamin called "haraj" (don't have correct spelling). Can you provide it? thank you.

I been watching RHOBH since u guys first came on. I have always liked you despite the fact that sometimes you are mean. I like your face expressions you are fun to watch. Last season it seemed like you disliked Brandi but this season you seem diff toward her. You always wear the nicest clothes I love your long hair your hubby is one hot tamale!!! :) and lets not forget little Portia darling she is sooo cute! Sophia is also very pretty she resembles you in Halloween with your cute bangs ;) can't wait for the new episode xxoo

Thanks for being the Kyle we all liked prior to last season.  Lisa is also my favorite.  I think the peroxide girls are the least likable.

Kyle, I was so angry at your reaction to Kim about the party.  She is recovering and doesn't need the stress of your craziness over something so trivial.   She couldn't come, so what get over it.

You are much more behaved in these first few episodes of this season as compared to the last season, particularly the reunion. What caused the change? I don't think it could soley be the result of your sister Kim and the issues she was dealing with. I hope that this season, you are the fun and easy going person we first saw. I wonder if something happened outside of the cameras with Lisa and why everyone ganged up on her. It was not fair and completely uncalled for. 

 

I am a big fan of RHOBH and the preview of this season looked like a lot of action and drama. I hope that it does not reflect the behaviour of the last reunion. 

 

You seem to be such a loving and patient mother and I hope you can share that with your sister Kim (as nasty as she has been, she needs the support).

Very impressed with you this week. As I was not a fan due to your mean behavior last year and with the first episode of the year you started to come off a little mean again this year. However I am open to change because for you to walk away when Taylor tried to bring you in on what she has now made into something it was not was very impressive. I am glad you are taking the high road. Hope it keeps up!

I think you have always been my favorite on Beverly HIlls Housewives..you seemed more "normal" than most of them..You obviously love your children and husband, but you seem to get yourself in "hot water".  You pride yourself in "Telling it like it is", but everytime you do, you get in trouble...the Camille thing, when Brandi first came into the show, your eternal problems with your sister Kim, airing out your feelings about Lisa on the final show.. I think your worst problem is to try to be too controling about everything..even when your husband wanted you to go to Napa on a romantic vacation..

I can't even begin to say how controlling you are about your sister, Kim.  You are really ruining her life...You just can't resist telling her what to do, nagging her, minding her business, being critical about her life, her boyfriends,, and just really sarcastic, nasty comments to her.  You seem to want to control her life, and you are ruining it..You are probably a cause of her drinking so much.  In Hawaii...she really just wanted to be alone with Ken, and you wanted her to do things you wanted her to do.  They finally had a little peace when you went off without them, and they were happy.  People are at different stages of their lives..You act like you and Maurico have done so much for Kim, that she "owes you".  I don't know what the deal is about her  house, if you really took it from her, but she resents you for that.  I am sure you have helped her out financially, and that is why you want to tell her what to do.  Understandedly, Kim doesn't want to be around you.  Lately, you have been holding back telling other friends how you feel, avoiding the drama..why can't you do that with her?  You really make her miserable..it is obvious..I think she would be happier if she moved far away from you.  Let Kim go..don't keep her in captivity.  You can't just MAKE other people do what you want them to do. Just a suggestion..don't take Faye Resnick to any more parties..she stirs things up too much.  Also when you have a children's birthday party, just have children..You hardly saw her at the party. One more thing...you and Kim treated Brandi horribly at the beginning, i know that she tweaked the situation, but she was just "fighting back."  Sometimes it is better not to say anything, than to create drama..take the "high road".

Love you Kyle.  You like to stir the pot and it makes the show fun.   I hope you and your sister can work things out.  She comes off to me like she is still "on something" this season. 

 

Good luck.

Portia is absolutely adorable.  I loved it that you were teaching her how to be a little hostess at her party, inviting her guests and all.  One thing....stay out of Lisa and Adrienne's spat.  Adrienne wants to put it behind them.....Lisa is wallowing in the victim role.  Just enjoy them both, and refuse to be drawn into it.  By the way, Taylor must be obsessed with Brandi, because she just cannot shut her mouth about the girl.  I never saw such a blabber mouth in all my life!

 LOL, Taylor won't know what hit her.  Go Brandi!!!  It's about time someone set Taylor straight.  The other woman seem afraid to confront Taylor because she's so explosive but Brandi isn't the least bit intimidated by her.

 

As for Kyle, well.......hello Bobby Fischer!   Hmmm....now that her calculated moves to instigate a fight between Lisa and Adrienne and then Brandi and Taylor fell flat, who's next???  Camille.........

 @clover5 She has shown no loyalty to Lisa. It's time for Lisa to cut her losses and move on. Kyle has shown herself to be the worst kind of friend. She is also a drama queen and imposes herself into peoples issues. Taylor is the least authentic person of all the Housewives franchises. Kyle is going to live to regret all of this. You can hear and see Lisa's hurt but it's better that she's been able to see the truth and not continue to misplace her trust.

 @clover5 I so agree with you clover! I don't understand why Kyle turned on Lisa, and tried to get in the middle of Lisa's and Adrienne's issues. Doesn't Kyle have enough drama?

 

The other thing is: I don't understand why Kyle can't see she causes her sister Kim stress. You always see Kyle respond to Kim with frustration! And you see the pain in Kim's face. The poor thing had just got out of rehab for goodness sake. Give Kim some room Kyle. Portia probably won't even remember her 4th bday party in 20 years. And, having several sisters myself, I still can't get over the screaming match between Kyle & Kim in the limo, first season. WHY would you let something so painful be filmed Kyle or were you drunk too? One last thing - I didn't see your sister Kathy or kids at Portia's party - why not?

 @rosyposy Lisa is wallowing?  Is this a joke???  Of course Adrienne wants to put it behind her - her behavior was disgusting!  Lisa has continued to be her classy and gracious self.  Haven't you all realized that Kyle needs to be in the middle of everything?  She's often the catalyst to all the drama!

 @rosyposy How is Lisa Wallowing in the victim role??

She has not so much as mentioned Adriennes name, except to tell people to stay out of it?

 @rosyposy Lisa wallowing in the victim role?  How?  I can't blame her at all for not wanting anything to do with Adrienne after the comments she made at the reunion that could have negatively effected Lisa's business.  Adrienne also called Lisa a liar.  And Adrienne wants an apology?  For what?  Adrienne was 100% wrong and I wouldn't want anything to do with someone like that.
