Kyle Richards

Kyle spills on her hopes for Lisa, thoughts on Adrienne's divorce, and finding solace in Kim's strength.

on Mar 25, 20130

It was so sad hearing about Paul and Adrienne. I wish so much they could have worked things out. I hope that Ken and Lisa were able to enjoy themselves in spite of everything that happened. Thirty years of marriage is certainly something to celebrate.

How strange it was to be celebrating one friend’s marriage while watching our other friend's crumble. This has been a tough season. So many of us were divided over the Brandi and Adrienne situation. So many arguments, so much change.

There were also good times. Ojai, Paris, opening my store, and best of all, seeing my sister Kim stronger than she has been in many years. In moving forward, I hope that Lisa and I can finally put any differences behind us, that Taylor continues to heal, and that Kim and I can start a new chapter in our relationship.

Thank you for watching.

XO,
Kyle

I love Kyle's ability to be herself and get along with a lot of different types of women in a very wealthy and entitled culture.  And, I love how she represents her marriage and family.  But, what I love most about Kyle is that she often acknowledges how lucky she is.  I recently converted to Judaism and became engaged to a good Jewish man.  Mauricio and Kyle are on a reality T.V. show and I don't really know them from Adam, so maybe I'm lame, but their marriage is one I admire and look to as a wonderful example.

I watched the episode and I agree with Lisa, you should have backed her up in her fight with Faye.  Faye insulted Lisa at her own party in her own home.  I found that to be totally disrespectful and Kyle should have said something.  Yes, Lisa should have defended Kyle in NYC; however, Kyle and Lisa had an emotional talk where Kyle said she would work on defending Lisa.  An opportunity presented itself and Kyle didn't take advantage.  When someone tells me, "I will back you up, no matter what", that means no matter what the situation, no matter who's at fault, my friend will back me up. It doesn't mean that she gets to pick and choose when to defend me.  GOD bless

You can tell how much you love bringing Faye around because she says everything you are scared to say to the girls, by the look on your face you were loving every minute you tried to act like you were embarrassed but we could see right through you! I was so happy to hear Faye is not returning.

You and Kim have spoken many times about the prescription mix up in Paris.I didnt see that episode but got the jest of it.Kim wasnt acting normal and later found that she mixed up old meds with her currant prescriptions and explained the behavior.My question is,why is she holding on to old meds that is currently not being prescribed to her?Those should have be tossed out.If they were some kind of controlled or narcotic substance then yes that would be a relapse.If she is truly sober she would not be in possession of them.If they were left over from her nose job,she should have deposed of them and again considered a relapse.Point being,someone is not being completely honest and someone doesnt care enough to investigate.

If you chose to be friends with a manipulative, condasending, patronising person like Faye, you will be judged the same. I really don't understand what you see in her or get out of your friendship. Time to reevaluate!

I have to say, I always was a big fan of yours. but ever since game night last season, I lost respect for you.  you did not win any favors this season either.  I just can't understand why Lisa didnt kick shrek face faye out of her party, after she insulted her. . she said the only reason she didnt was cause she "came with kyle".  Lisa is always a class act, you should take lessons from her. and when your sister told you she was loopy cause she "accidentally" took pills, did you actually believe her?

Faye is not just your friend, she is the GODMOTHER of all your children.

 

I pray for your children's well-being. I hope they don't grow up acting like Faye.

Yes - we know, Kyle.  NOTHING is EVER YOUR fault.  Poor Kyle - everyone is misunderstanding you.  You must think your viewership is very stupid.  Watching this show is mindless entertainment - yes - but you're as obvious as can be.  Seems like EVERYONE sees who you really are but YOU.

Kyle, you made good point about when in New York and how Lisa didn't defend you. Well done. However, you said that "that is not the Faye that my family knows", when you started seeing her attack the other women then maybe you should have stopped bringing her around. The only reason she is on the show is because you keep bringing her around. Please stop doing that. 

Your family has been through some hard times with your sister and parties gone bad, why continue to add insult to injury. You live a blessed life, one that many people would love to have. You are a lucky person.

I do not understand your style, your choice of close friends, your tearless sobbing, your contradictions with regards to Adrienne (defending her to the death then saying you are not that close to her), your inability to take ownership of your behavior, your opportunistic husband, and your loopy sister. I am not a fan and refuse to heap praise on you, for anything! I truly hope you are replaced next season.

Kyle dear, we all know where Faye is getting her information from, YOU! If you are confiding in her as your friend because of your frustration with the situation, then make sure that she understands that the conversation is confidentional. However I am almost certain that she really wants a spot on this show and you really need her on there because she is more than willing to do your dirty work for you, it's a partnership that benefits you both. I don't think it was pretty watching your husband attack Brandi this season either, I wonder where he was getting his information from?  Now the fans have turned on him as well as Faye.

You don't need to defend anybody,if people believe that the truth is on their side then why have somebody else speak for you. Lisa comes across like a confident woman but she has a lot insecurities . She equates you not defending her a sign of rejection or you not being a friend to her.that's why she brings it up all the time like a child . Lisa like to be told what she wants to her and not what she needs to hear. She needs people like you to boost her ego to make her feel and when you don't she will hold a grudge . You see she will never let it go. Remember she the one with the problem not you. So move on.

Kyle, I think you're the voice of reason on RHOBH. I love the fact that you keep your husband and children #1 in your life, yet you have a gorgeous new clothing store, are there for your friends and your sister and you don't seem to relish fighting the way Brandi, Lisa, Ken and Yolanda. I thought Yolanda was going to add a lot to the show but she's been eager to fight and jumps at the chance to tear others down. You stay strong, Kyle. You're the reason I watch every week!

I really wish Faye would fade in to the background where she belongs. No one likes her. She is a back stabbing money grubbing wanna be-in my opinion. Brandi will outshine her in every way in a much shorter time frame. Faye is transparently jealous of Brandi and that is all there is to it. She has good reason to be jealous. Brandi is a beautiful person who speaks the truth, loves her children and has higher moral standards than Faye when it comes to friendships and truth and love of the human race.

Bet you wish you could have a redo of Season 2 reunion....you'd probably do things a little differently I imagine with Lisa.  You put all your eggs in the wrong basket with Adrienne.

Kyle, you're just so frustrating in these blogs, making it really hard to read the same comments over and over. Fans have been writing that we have seen your "agenda' from the gate this season after your rapid fall from grace (game night) last season, and Lisa's high profile rise, where she's been placed "up on a pedestal" with the viewers in such OPPOSITE CONTRAST to you. And this contrast, I believe, WAS the motivating factor for all of your  "moves" this year. Most fans call it "manipulations."  I think it drove you nuts with jealousy and you just weren't having it. Especially after the reunion where you tried to take Lisa down with you and it didn't work. You had nowhere to go with Lisa, and us, so you've been back peddling ever since, and setting up the scenes this season to hurt the Brandi/Lisa package buried you further.

CatChronicles

Kyle, you are missing the point.  Last reunion, you said some harsh things like telling Lisa she was a manipulative person. It was not just that you didn't defend her - you bashed her and talked about Lisa badly behind her back with Taylor and the other women.  Why would Lisa want to be your friend if you feel that way about her?  More importantly, why would you want to be friends with someone if you really thought they were manipulative?  None is as blind as she who will not see...

Kyle, you just aren't getting it.  You are missing the point.  You told Lisa she was a manipulative person. It was just that you didn't defend her - you bashed her and talked about Lisa badly behind her back with Taylor.  Why would Lisa want to be your friend if you feel that way about her?  More importantly, why would you want to be friends with someone like that anyways?  None is as blind as she who will not see...

Kyle, you fed your opinions of Brandi to Faye and then sat back for the fireworks at your dinner party. You brought her to Lisa's house for her party knowing she was going to say something to Brandi there. She insulted Lisa and you just sat there not wanting to get involved. You got involved every other time when it was opposite of Lisa and Brandi, but when the true moment of friendship was at stake you decide you don't want to get involved? And the reason you don't have Lisa's back is because you agree with everyone but Lisa.

 

You say you feel Lisa replaced you with Brandi, but you had replaced Lisa with Taylor a long time ago.

 

You are quick to defend everyone else but Lisa and it's clear that your friendship changed due to your actions, not Lisa's.

Honestly I think the majority of your behavior stems from jealousy.  You are jealous of Lisa, Brandi and Yolanda's popularity with the fans.  You are jealous of Lisa and Brandi's friendship.  It hasn't been a very attractive trait to witness as a viewer and it has caused you to behave like an angry teenager.

You seem to have a distorted memory of things. First of all Lisa did defend you and try to step in when ever you had your fights with Camille. You might want to replay season one to get your facts straight. Secondly, to sit there silently when Faye started ripping in to Brandi when you were the hostess and then Lisa(in Lisa's home no less) is ridiculous. She is your friend with absolutely no role on the show other than that, and she had no right to become so involved in things that had nothing to do with her. I think Lisa showed great restraint not to throw Faye out on her ass at the vow renewal, I know I would have. How dare she attack the host on her special occasion like that! and for you not to see that shows how little you care about Lisa as a friend. Your fawning over Adrienne's very carefully planned entrance to Lisa and Ken's party was also sickening to watch. Who in there right mind shows up to a party the same day you announce your divorce and cry crocodile tears about how you need to be with your children, please!  I laugh how stupid that all was now that we see the photos of her romping around with Rod Stewarts son so soon after. You may have your reasons for not wanting to be friends with Lisa and that is your choice, but please own up to your behavior as well and don't try to make us viewers out to be a bunch of idiots for not understanding you.

I do believe that you and Kim need some very very serious family therapy.The dysfunction between you two is palpable. You both come off as unwise and confused. Get help now before it is too late and your own children become tainted by your lack of real wisdom. Ken said it best: You do need a course on friendship and what it entails. You have not been a good friend to either Lisa or  your sister.And your sister has not been a good friend to you. Perhaps it is because neither of you really like yourselves. If you do not like yourselves, you cannot really be a friend to others..

I do wish you luck, because you are not alone here. Brandi does not know how to be a real friend either unless she can in some way benefit.

 So I am not saying this becuase I am on the Brandi wagon. Quite the contrary: I think you really do want to be a good person/a good friend, but have never been taught how. Brandi is just very very mean and spiteful and quite shallow and immature.

You are a great mother. I cannot really with any confidence say the same for Brandi.

Actions are the only things that speak. Nothing else really counts. Please get help now.

I think in trying to keep piece you came off wrong. It was a small action that was completely misunderstood. We have seen enough of you to know you are kinder than that!

Kyle, don't be discouraged! You and Mauricio are the favorites now .Lisa has turned into a "mean girl" just like Stassi. We see your sincerity. You have strong character. The best on that stage! Tell me what is the difference between you talking problems out with your girl friends and Lisa blasting off to the camera to millions of strangers. Ill tell you! Big difference! Made Lisa look worse! Sad , you and Lisa were my favorites. Now just you(and Mauricio) Chin up! If she can't see the beauty in who you are, America can!!!

It's obvious that you don't have Lisa's back Kyle,  so just own it for Pete's sake.  It's okay.  I would have much more respect for you to just be honest.  You can like Lisa and not feel the need to 'have her back'.  Please stop pretending to be besties when 'you' aren't.  I am really disappointed in your struggle to justify everything.  Own your behavior and it's over, no need to explain.  I like you but you F'd up trying to explain too much. 

I still think you are a great friend to many, don't let this get in your way of mending your friendship with Lisa.  She's a great friend to have but you will never be besties but you can still have lots of good times together.  Stay true Kyle, best wishes.  Thanks for inviting us into your lives, you have a sweet life, you've worked hard for it, keep it up! 

 

P.S. Faye is not good company.

You are my former favorite a long with Lisa.  The two of you seemed to be so good friends.

I totally was on your side during the "fight" with Camille, (still have nightmares about the smoking medium.  Know that!).

 

But you changed Kyle, right in front of your fans eyes.  You can deny it all you want but we the viewers are not that stupid.  

I have been wondering why you done what you done, letting your "friend" Faye attack both Brandi and Lisa in your house and I could not get my head around it.

 

And the Adrienne sucking up, "Oh Adrienne I have your back, Darling Adrienne  vi are always going to be here for you."  I´m throwing my self into a wall just thinking about it.  It was so not to to by nominated for an Oscars.

On the reunion show we the fans finally got the answer, about you trying to get adopted to the Malhoofs, figuratively speaking you know.

 

Of course it had to do with Mauricio's business selling those multimillion dollars house the pair owns.  Just like Mauricio sold The Wanderpump house,an if I remember correctly that was at the time you and Lisa were very good friends..

Boy has that chanced. 

 

I wish you well but I wish you could be a better person to your friends.  

Money and prestige of any kind can never replace a good honest friendship.

Telling the truth and stop instigating does wonder for your social live.

Lots of love.

HI Kyle. I think you and lisa need to mend your friendship. You should have had lisa's back with faye at her vow renewal, Because faye was attacking lisa on her day at her house way wrong faye . On other topics though, i love your style and think that you and lisa are the two most stylish women of the show. Try just not even going near these petty arguements if they arise at party's that way no one can say you didnt have thier back's.

 @kris10lee Kyle,   I believe that you have a good heart as well as your husband and have good and decent moral values.   You unfortunately have to put up with a snake, Brandi, who has no moral values and does noting but cause problems.   I wish she was not on the show because when she comes on I just change the channel because she is so hateful.   All I see when I look at her is a woman that is trying to stir the pot so she can move in on someone elses life and grab a husband with money.   I don't like her and wish they could find someone else to replace her.   How about Faye.   She seems to be more level headed.   who wants to be subjected to that gutter snipe Brandi once a week.   She is ruining the show.   We like to see the nice and fine and comfortable side of you lucky women that get to live a dream life.   For Lisa, she is just a has been woman that wanted to be a show girl and get in the movies.   The British cold unforgiving attitude is so unattractive.   It looks like she contrived this mess so she could be controversial for the show.   Let her go wait tables in her restaurant.

 @DaisyDuke2 rest easy, word is Faye is shocked that people don't like her and we would be so bold as to say mean and hurtful things. I guess she thought the viewers would like her?!? Now, apparently, RHOBH is "ruining" her life and affecting her business so she wants nothing more to do with RHOBH. I'm really glad because she detracts from the show, regardless of "ratings gold" drama.

 @Sopie2013  I agree.  Kyle was jealous that Lisa had a spinoff series and was chosen to be on Dancing With The Stars.  She was jealous of Kim in Season 1 and acted like an angry two-year-old in the limo when she outed Kim as an alcoholic.

 @RHOBHfavoriteshowonTV  @DaisyDuke2 How could Faye possibly think that we the views would find anything nice to say about her behavior? I'm glad her feelings are hurt, she sure didn't mind hurting Lisa and Brandi's feelings this season. I hope Faye does STAYS FAR AWAY from the RHOBH....FAR, FAR AWAY!!!!
