Kyle Richards

Kyle shares how she was felt going into Cirque school and why she didn't speak out against the Brandi "bully" story.

on Nov 26, 20130

This week Mauricio and I have dinner with Joyce and Michael. We really like them both and have fun together. Michael and Mauricio are both golf fanatics so they instantly had that in common.

Hearing "news" about my family on TV or on the Internet is not new to me. Often, I will see or hear things and have to call my family and say "What is going on? is this true!?!" Most of the time I know right away that it's another BS story.

However, this is the first time I have been in this position personally. I too have been guilty at times of thinking that there had to be some sort of truth behind these stories. I think it was reading about Jennifer Aniston that made me realize that a lot of these stories are literally invented. How many times have we read about and even SEEN pictures of Jennifer Aniston's "baby bump"? She has to be on her 14th child by now!

When I walked into the circus school, the last thing I wanted to do was be around most of the women to be honest. I was still upset from lunch at Carlton's, and did not feel like "bonding" with them. But my sister made this plan, and she had good intentions. I was happy when I saw Kim, Joyce, and actually Carlton, too. I was still completely unaware that Carlton disliked me so much -- and she was being pretty nice to my face.

When we first sat down, Kim was explaining why she invited everyone and why it was important to her. From the minute I walked in, I could feel the negative energy coming from the other sofa. So when Yolanda cut Kim off and was basically saying "Enough already. Let's get stared," I felt defensive. I felt like she was being disrespectful, considering Kim invited everyone and was excited to share this day.

We all moved on from that, but there was a very strange vibe in the room. Kim had pulled me aside and told me that Brandi thought I had called her a bully. UGH. WHY am I all of a sudden on the defensive when I hadn't done anything?!? Beyond frustrating. Here I didn't even want to be there to begin with because of the way the women acted at Carlton's, and now Brandi is pissed off at ME? I decided to go up and say something because it was either that or leave. I didn't want to do that to Kim since she had been talking about this day for a while.

Kyle, no one cares about you and your husband. Get over it. And please stop calling everyone else mean girls. You were like a jealous teenager when Brandy came on the scene. It was disgusting how you and your sister treated her. I was a fan of your fans at one point.

Spotlight...???      you pushed yourself on any TV show that would have you, to defend the 'antics' of your niece, just to feed your own inflated ego  then you went on, in some delusional fictional universe, saying in your usual narcissistic way, how hard it was growing up in the "spotlight" and still is..!!!! really... I must have missed that...what spotlight..???..how self absorbed can you get in your own BS.???....and of course you so profoundly state to your private camera, as if you have found the cure for cancer, .. you only surround yourself with 'true friends' that know you inside and out.. mmmm... that Faye Rancid is your 'true friend',,, another upright standing pillar of the community.....such a role model...!!!! ...You have an extremely ridiculous high opinion of your phony self.. your intro to the show is '"you know what is real and what is fake...errrr...well look in the mirror, because you and your  hubby are 100% fake... yes please get your hubby to do a lie test...he is bluffing !!!!!... and you have the audacity to compare yourself to Jennifer Aniston...ha..ha....what juvenile delusional world do you live in...??...Ps....Don't even live in Beverly Hills....

I am a regular viewer; and, I don't read the tabloids.  And when the tabloid headlines come on air -- I never believe them.  Stop giving this story line unnecessary attention -- follow your lawyers advice don't give it any attention and it will  eventually die down.

You are so fake and disgusting. Your edited recaps of current events in your living room with amaaaaaaaaaaaazing Mauricio are so contrived and rehearsed yet totally unconvincing. You and your equally as ugly hag sister are so fake ( oh, did I say that already?) uninteresting, and ignorant. No one is buying your b.s. It's so funny that you are leaching onto the new girl so you have an an ally. So sophomoric.

Kyle, you talked about Brandi"s husband cheating all the time. Do you really think any man is faithful?? Let your husband take the lie detector test!!! I think he did it.

Kyle, I used to like you. Until last season when I saw you and Kim are so hateful and spiteful. Please grow up. Money does not buy character.

Kyle-Love has nothing to do with cheating. Neither does having a beautiful family, money, fame or millions of people watching. I have no idea why you ladies put yourselves on television to be watched under a microscope and then claim to be a victim when someone attacks your family's reputation. I don't care how much people love each other anything can happen in this arena. The question is why (with all of your love, wealth and happiness) would you want to put your family in the line of fire for the papz. If you are really happy back away from the cameras and live your life in private.

Kyle, First you should stop listening to Kim and quit blaming the ladies. You and you sister need to start acting like ladies not little school girls.

I sometimes think that others are watching a different show. There was life given to the story that your husband is cheating and that is exactly what Brandi wanted when she mentioned it. I hate that she is still on the show. Its not that she does not have a filter, its the fact that she is irrelevant  and that's why she has to start a fight with someone to keep her from being boring and she is boring. Tired of her already.The person I am most disappointed in is Lisa. Her friendship with Brandi is strange to say the least, but then again, look at the group she has working for her,its all about the drama or over half the people working for her would be fired for bad behavior. Of course there would be no show. People make mistakes, you tried to correct your mistakes and even apologize for how you treated Brandi when she first came on the show, but there are others no matter what they say of do think they are justified. No friend should ever demand another to have their back if you feel they are wrong in what they are doing. Thats not a friend.

Kyle, I want you to know that even though the ladies did not give you the support you needed, I support you 100% and if i was on the show i would have your back! You have and will always be my favorite housewife. You seem the most real and throughout the seasons you have remained the same. I am glad that you and your sister are in a better place now and i hope that your relationship only grows stronger and stronger with time. Keep doing what your doing and forget the other people. HATERS GONNA HATE!!!

LOve, love, love you Kyle. It is quite shocking the way these women (who Bravo spins as your friends) treat you. Actually the way Brandi, and Lisa treat everyone is shocking. Who are these women? And how do they have any real friends if this is the way they behave?

 

I hate the turn the show has taken and all the negativity. Unfortunately you are clearly this seasons target. Though you know what comes with doing a show like this, I doubt you thought it would become yet another hate-fest Bravo seems set on producing. 

 

Hang in there. Hopefully the powers that be at Bravo start producing shows that actually give us a glimpse into Beverly Hills Housewives and their lives, and stop feeding us all these hateful, negative shows. I really like you, Kim, and Joyce, but I don't think I can keep watching if it's just going to be a show that encourages women to bully, hate, and attack each other.

Kyle, you are sooo wrong on so many levels where to begin.  First off, you were out of line defending Kim at the Cirque because Yolanda was NOT rude she was just trying to move along and Kim was going on to nauseam about how everyone should behave....come on its not Romper Room, seriously we ALL got her message as painfully repetitive as it was, THANK YOU Yolanda for cutting it short.  Kim was the rude one and you backed her up come on, just once admit your mistake.  Secondly, your excuse for not tweeting the rebuttal regarding the bullying is completely ridiculous!  "Oh I can't tweet that because I am so wrapped up in my own issue with my cheating husband"..give me a break!  As Lisa pointed out it takes 2 seconds...the amount of time you sat there with your mouth hanging open at the absurdity of them wanting to correct a problem that wasn't about you.  How dare they?  You are so off center and its not because of this rumor you have been like this for the entire last season or so.  Get a grip girl you need to start solving problems instead of creating them and throwing gasoline on the flame!

Wouldn't it be nice to watch Kyle, Kim, Faye, Brandi, Taylor and the crazy allison dubois stranded in an island? That will be a reality to watch!!! Then bring in Carlton and Joyce just to add to the equation!

Kyle, I hope its not true about your hubby, but u know what some men are like, they can't help themselves.  It is no reflection on you though, so try and rise about it and ignore the rumours.

I find it sad that you and Lisa are no longer the good friends you were in the past, but then we all know whom we have to thank for that, don't we.  It's the malice and shameless, vile manipulations of a certain fake blonde who recently moved to new digs and her willing helper(s).  I don't understand how anyone can give the slightest credence to anything that comes out of their mouths, and that's where Lisa disappoints.  How Brandi can look at her face in the mirror in the morning is beyond me.  Does she even believe her own words?

 

I realize you live with a heavy burden at the moment and hope it will ease soon.  I wish you patience and strength.

Kyle I don't think anyone believes what is on the cover of a rag mag. Seriously that might be a "hollywood thing" to buy them but I certainly would never think to purchase one or even look at them. Most of us (I hope) tend to spend what little free time we have worrying about our own problems... It's no one but you and your husbands business.....

In season 1 didn't Camille say that Mauricio "loves the ladies".  She said she heard that he cheats.  Nobody knows but Mauricio and the women he possibly cheated with if this is true.  I just wouldn't be so quick to dismiss it all.  Maybe Kyle is so upset because this is not new news to her.

Oh please, you have started so much crap and talked behind everyone's back at one time or another and have proven yourself over and over again to be a grown up mean girl. Why would anyone want to defend you?  If there's nothing going on and you 'just ignore' (your words) when rumors start, why are you so bent out of shape about this?  Since, generally speaking, where there's smoke, there's fire we'll just have to see how this all plays out.  In the meantime, stop whining and acting like the entire world revolves around you.

Brandi probably put the story out there herself, and others., so that she can get paid.  She is so pressed and envious of women who are in a marriage and she is not.  She needs therapy to deal with her issues and be honest with her therapist because I can see that she has issue from the TV and Lord knows I am sure it is more intense up close and personal with her.

Kyle how can you expect the ladies to come to Kim's event and only speak about what Kim wants them to speak about??!! I mean really Kim has in previous seasons caused so much ruckus at the other ladies events.. why should she get special treatment?!

Kyle the cheating rumors, and calling someone a bully is a boring story line. Going after Lisa is not going to do it either. You are not fun to watch at all this season.

@Tlr I agree! Where's her good friend Adrienne? Kyle stuck up for her and never stuck up for Lisa. Now lyles mad Lisa didn't back her. Why should she? Kar as a bitch and lyles getting hers. She has started so much shit stirring the pot and then when her pot stirring gets huge, she says she doesn't want to get involved. She started it in the first place. I can name several occasions that she started the drama. Ken stuck up for her husband, even to Lisa. Mariceo would never do that for ken. Kyle and her sister need to go!

 @Virgolady6901 I agree with you with all of the above.  Kyle is the real McCoy on this show, born and raised in Beverly Hills, along with Kim.  The rest are a bunch of free-loaders, especially Brandi.  Don't understand how she ever got on the show and she definitely does need to create the drama in order to stay on the show.  This is why she stirs the pot with everyone.  About Yolanda and the comment about Lisa when they were in Paris that starting the riff between she and Kyle...  Bravo, please just re-roll the tape.  Kyle is clearly not lying.  Yolanda lied.  Kyle deserves better friendships.  Kyle needs to not lower herself to the level of the others who are envious of her (because she actually has a personality and a handsome husband)...rather she should bring the others up to her level.  Lisa isn't a true friend and I don't believe it is in her DNA.  Lisa is about Lisa.  Don't even get me started on the newest mean girl Karlton.  Seems she has a few issues to say the least and am hoping this will be her first and last season.  Joyce can stay.  She isn't mean.  She will get the hang of things.  At least she is a real BH housewife.

 @Diane69802 As Kyle stated the blog you are commenting on... she wasn't acknowledging the accusations publicly. The topic of the lunch was leaked- the bully comment to follow... they go hand in hand. Really this is not hard to understand especially if you live in America where legal issues can be quite sensitive and complex (as she was talking to a lawyer and following his advice).

@Bernie-mate Your idea is hysterical! Something that requires skills not just to survive but to win a prize like getting the cover of a local magazine. Or the chance to eat lunch with someone who's fame has sky rocketed! That would be a cat fight?

 Camille was a wicked bitch Season 1, she only became likeable after she had a big dose of humble pie and her husband very publicly dumped her.  I don't give any credibility to anything she said during that time.  ESP Allison also said it, which makes it even less credible.

 @1annee I so agree with you about  Karlton. Dresses her house with cross's and then gets offended if you ask her about her religion? Oh she so wants to fight with someone and Kyle is it. You can call her the C word,,but don't ask about if she practices being a witch or her religion.  If you didn't want it out there,,then why invite people into your home...another person suffering from lack of attention.

 @2012Lucy  @piperbeau The sad things is that hardly anyone, Housewives as well as viewers and comment writers, seems to understand in what a fragile state Kim is.  Her drinking has clearly done severe damage to her psyche.  Expecting her to act like "normal people" would is unreasonable.  Kim has become childlike.  She is extremely fragile.  I cheer her on all the way, quietly hoping that she will manage to keep herself together.  She deserves understanding, patience, and indulgence, not harsh judgment, catty remarks, and disdain.

 

I admire and support you for sticking with your sister, Kyle.  I'm sure it is frequently difficult.
