Kyle Richards

Kyle knows she should have been more cautious with her words, but she still doesn't understand Carlton's motivations.

on Feb 30

This week Lisa and I decided to throw a birthday dinner for Ken and Mauricio. Mauricio loves Ken and the two really get along well. I didn't know it was Yolanda's step daughter's wedding the same night as the birthday dinner. When I realized Lisa wasn't invited I teased her about being part of the Dream Team. In my interview I say "Who makes up teams?" I was referring to Yolanda's comment at her dinner party. Lisa was clearly saying that we each pick six couples, not teams, which made sense since we were both throwing this party together.

Brandi's book cover was fun to watch. She clearly is a professional model. I have to say I 100 percent agreed with Nancy Hancock (who I also worked with on my book) on Brandi's look and dress. The pink was perfect!

After the painting party at Yolanda's, Joyce had told me Michael became very ill that night after Yolanda's lunch and they were concerned after what Carlton had said that day. If someone said to me, "Just wait and see what happens when you go home tonight," I would also have concerns. I honestly do not believe in witchcraft. I DO believe in bad energy and not wanting to be around negativity. The fact that Carlton says she used to practice black magic doesn't scare me as much as it feels unsettling to know someone would even WANT to do that.

Can't stand Carlton, but she is right. Talk about your own nipples instead of your friends, first time you meet someone, and you won't be judged so harsh!!

Kyle,  I understood Carlton's motivations just after the first time I watched the few episodes surrounding the Jewish Star tattoo.  I watched them too many times.  First off, Carlton was angry and embarrassed with her own behavior and reaction to you asking if it was a Jewish Star tattoo.  Remember......she was so completely angry with you BEFORE you called her an anti-Semite.  Once you actually used those words.....BINGO!  She got her scapegoat.  Losing potential family business isn't going to be because of what others call Carlton!  it's going to be because of how she conducts herself and the words SHE choses.  and she made herself look very badly for how she said " A Jewish Star!? Are you F'ing kidding me?!"   now that WAS an embarrassment to the Jewish community and that was the real reason for her tears at her business party!  Don't forget how angry she was at you before the whole star thing came up. She embarrassed herself and she found a way to turn it on you. as if you are going to scoff at someone having a Jewish Star.  For Pete's sake (ha), you don't know at what lengths someone might go through to identify with people or even clients.  even though her Wicken faith is near and dear to her, how would you know that she might not get tattoos of other faiths to show her compassion.....who knows!?    I can't believe that nobody else can see that she totally used you as a scapegoat to escape the embarrassment of her own behavior.

Carlton seems to be a very lost soul. It appears that she was bullied a lot when she was younger and she is ultra sensitive to thinking bullying is going on all around her and people are speaking ill of her.  I have never seen an episode where she is not angry.  so I don't know how her husband could say "one thing about Carlton is that she is not judgmental"  are you kidding me???   She is nothing but judgmental and I can assure you that he husband hears more negativity than the women on the show hear about who she has a beef with.  and when someone says "ONE THING about my  wife is ......yada yada......"  you know that means that there aren't many positive things to speak of which is way they say "ONE THING MY WIFE IS NOT......"  because it is know that they are MANY other things.  SHEESH.   I have never written a blog comment on anything but this has really been buggin me.

Kyle, I like your free spirit and how happy go lucky you are.  I identify with you and Brandi the most.  Brandi is innocent yet guarded and you are just happy and roll water  off your butt like a duck!  Keep it real Kyle, that is how you seem to me :-)

Kyle,

Carlton obviously has it out for you and Joyce.

It was very classy of you to give her your necklace as a peace offering. Instead of her putting the necklace in distilled water to remove the negativity she should try bathing in distilled water to remove her own negativity. She obviously doesn't understand that candles and tattoos don't make you a sacred person. Carlton said she used to "practice dark magic, and it brought a lot of negativity in her life" it's apparent shes never stopped. 

Looks like another trip to the Objets d'Art & Spirit shop is in order.

Kyle maybe it's time for you to realize as well as some of your cast-mates what a real girls/girl does. She doesn't trash friends behind their backs. You have made some redeeming efforts and to throw it all away for some whiny POS such as Brandi? It should make you feel better that Yolanda is proving what you already said about her last reunion. Lisa may say things but she only said things after you said some vile things such as "someone who preys on weaker people" really was that a compliment. Gee friends like you who needs enemies!

Kyle I just started liking you again-I've seen the good and bad of you but overall I think you are a good person. You were trying to defend yourself against crazy and did not accuse her of being anti-semetic-you were just trying to make a point to a crazy self-centered nut case-no matter what you said she would find a way to turn it against you-she is ugly inside and out. Not because of wiccan or anything else. She just is.

Kyle fans (and viewers) have forgotten Lisa’s relationship history with Kyle through the seasons.

Lisa and Kyle developed a friendship, Kyle (and Mauricio) nurtured that friendship enough for Lisa and Ken to trust. So, when it came time for Lisa and Ken to list their previous property on the market, they both awarded the listing to Mauricio. Amongst all the competitive realtors out there in LA, Lisa and Ken believed in the value of friendship where friends help friends. Don’t get me wrong, Mauricio did his job, he sold their home and they got their money, but remember, Mauricio benefited from this friendship where he made a profit from it. So from that point on, Lisa felt her connection with Kyle dropped off, and as the show’s seasons progressed, Lisa then felt, and rightfully so, used. Hence, why we always see Lisa asking/reminding Kyle have her back, to be the friend that Kyle originally alluded to be. Now do we remember what happened?!

I don’t know about other viewers, but if I were in Lisa’s position, I would feel the very same way where a distinct line between friendship over money is blurred! And to further watch, Kyle and Brandi discuss their opinions, and supposedly the evil intentions of Lisa, is gut wrenching disbelief. To arrive to the conclusion that Lisa is this manipulative chess player is beyond imaginable as only Kyle and Brandi are the ones doing the discrediting. Yes, Lisa is not perfect, Lisa is flawed just as anyone else is on the show but she is not vindictive so don’t get the two confused.

Lisa is a happily married woman with a stable family and two adoring children, she is also a business woman (of several businesses), a philanthropist, a humanitarian, and an entertainer (two bravo shows!). Where and how in her time would she ever, or could ever, conspire against her presumed frenemies. And as Lisa is always in the public eye anything negative would always affect her directly, why would she deliberately sabotage her businesses and public image for revenge? Just crazy!!

To Kyle fans, it does seem as though viewers do worship Lisa, and may be to an extent that is true. But viewers are not stupid, and we only judge on what we are presented, hence, why so many of us are siding with Lisa. Lisa’s only revenge is her self-made success, so that’s why and where jealousy comes into play, as her frenemies can’t wait to see her falter and fail!

Kyle too bad I was just starting to like you.  You need to wipe the drool of your face and tell Brandi to own her crap.  Do you know how to be a friend?  If it is offensive for Lisa to put Sheena in Brandi's space why would you EVER invite Brandi on a trip planned by someone who Brandi has belittled all season?  Know your place.

Kyle, I feel bad for you this episode. You are getting some negative comments on here for not defending Lisa. I don't believe you needed to defend her. If you were worshipping the ground she walked on, I truly believe these comments would take on a more positive note! Lisa is partly to blame for your friendship being the way it is. You tried to move forward with her but she is still holding a grudge. You have been able to move forward with the other housewives you've had problems with except Lisa and Carlton. And you did not even know Carlton had a problem with you until the bday party. Lisa cannot expect you to defend her after the things she has said and, also, you guys are no longer close friends. Keep being the lovely person you are!

Screw Carlton! I hope they don't put her on next season, as much as I love watching all you ladies and your drama filled lives, I just don't think I could take another season of Carlton. OMG you said nipple and im soo offended but hey come check out my sex dungeon and play with my gag ball, then we can go watch some strippers on a pole in my living room yeah yeah?  YUCK!

Kyle, Lisa talks about you behind your back just as much as you talk about her behind her back if not more so ignore all the Lisa worshippers.  I don't call them fans because they seem to absolutely worship her...she can do no wrong in their eyes.  Why would anyone want to worship someone they only see on TV a few minutes a week for a few months out of an entire year?  I don't get it.

Kyle, I think you are looking at this thing with Brandi and Lisa in the wrong way. It could be that Lisa was trying to move past the things you have done to her and the things that she said about you. Maybe she was acting in good faith and Brandi is the real chess player. Unfortunately, I think you just found this out. Please protect Kim from Brandi. I know she thinks she is in a good place, but this woman is dangerous.

Yes Lisa is a Chess playing genius.  She tells the truth, doesn't indulge in screaming matches, and sticks up for what she thinks is right.....that biatch!

You say you'll always know who Lisa is? What about Brandi? She said your sister was on meth, and that she crapped on a pillow for no other reason but to make her look bad.  She offended Adrianne and Paul all on her own with no help from Lisa.  She brought up the cheeting rumors at the lunch.  What did Lisa do exactly except keep you at a distance once she realized that you and Adrianne were going to serve her up at the reunion.

Do you really think she had anything to do with Cedric not being in the country? Wow that makes her very powerful!  It must be nice for Brandi to be able to offend everyone and then blame Lisa

Kyle just needs to stop trying with Carlton.  Carlton obviously has issues dealing with reality.  I respect all religions, I don't necessarily know much about all of them, but to each their own.  I find it ironic that Carlton can spew vile, hateful comments at others but when someone retaliates she simply can't handle it.  Should Kyle have made the statement she made?  No, but haven't we all, when pushed to our breaking limit, said things that we regret?  Of course we have.  The tears Carlton shed during this weeks episode moved me (not).  Carlton uses her religion as a crutch to excuse her bad behavior.  Its not much of a testimony for the Wiccan faith.  

Kyle, why try?  You can't argue with whackadoodle people.  (and stop giving away beautiful jewelry that obviously don't appreciate it.  LOL)

Kyle, you are all pawns in Brandi's chess game.  She is the master manipulator of all and u can't see that because of your blind hate towards Lisa.   You all are saying  that the audience cannot see through Lisa but we do.  As a matter of fact, we see through Lisa and everyone  else and  lisa still comes out as the sanest of all.   Sorry but I think Brandi used everyone and she wins this game (for now, that is).  She has a book and used everyone of u for publicity.  Whereas u, Kim and  Yoyo are just what --- boring housewives.  :(

Didn't see or hear anyone giving Kyle any grief about Kim missing yet another event.  Interesting.  But Lisa misses her daughter's grad party, and it's the end of the world.  The Richards sisters are such hypocrites.

Kyle, I get the situation with Carlton.  She doesn't like you.  For no reason other than you exist.  She comes across as jealous.  She wants to be more important.  She can't stand to her your voice, it shows on her face when you are speaking with someone else.  It's a loss cause to try to have a relationship with such a person.


I did not like your conversation with Brandi about Lisa and I was disappointed in you.  Brandi was friends with Lisa because of Lisa's status.  Lisa is not responsible for Brandi's behavior towards you.  Brandi chose to say the things she did.  She wanted to have Lisa love her by doing what she thought Lisa would want. 


Now the mean girl is mad with her friend and so she makes nice with the girl she bullied..  How high school and how sad I am that you chose to be a part of that. Even Lisa is (was) turning back to you now that she feels that others were turning against her.  I thought you wanted peace.  I am still bothered by what Lisa said about you and your husband befriending someone to get a listing.  It is unforgiveable.


You're being manipulated, be careful.

Kyle,


Wow - you expect Lisa to defend you yet you sit back and smile as Brandi wages a 6 month war against Lisa. You allow her to attack Lisa like you let Adrienne attack Lisa. You are hopefully going next season along with Brandi and your sister and Yolanda.

Kyle do yourself and your sister a Bravo favor and remove yourselves from the show, your sister Kim is a totally tool and you just like stirring the pot and watching all the chaos you create.  You can see the evil in your eyes when you sit for an interview.  You love it.......................

Kyle I guess I don't agree with most of the opinions on this blog!! I think you one hundred percent know what your doing when you CONSTANTLY bring up religion to Carlton!! You are one dubious chic!! From the beginning of this season it is very clear that you want to paint Lisa in a bad light.. Your nonstop catty jokes and comments about her turn my stomach!! Kyle you just maybe the "chess" player of all time!! 

jilldenise1

I hope what I read was true that you and Kim will be kicked off the show your boring your both self centered and you both think you run Beverly Hills think again Lisa is done with you. You and Kim are fake and if any other housewife had a rumor out there that their husband was cheating you better be dam sure YOU would have discussed it, but because it was about you, you wanted it to go away you can't have it both ways did you actually think no one was going to discuss it what planet do you live on

Kyle,,, Brandy and Carlton just try to make you mad and say things they can use against you... I think you, Lisa, Kim Yolanda and Joyce need to stay away from the MEAN GIRLS and make a Housewife's that I would  LOVE to watch!!!

girl you are trying too hard to change our minds about Lisa. You will Never be fan favorite...just give it up!! If you can ever stay classy, composed and authentic then perhaps viewers can love you but you are so worked on being the Queen Bee of the show that its hard to stomach you on TV.

Hi Kyle:  You were just getting back on track with Lisa, and I feel like you let Brandi pull you into the mud. Think about who you're siding with.

msant2012

Kyle it seems to me and a lot of other viewers that we are of the same opinion, that Carlton is out to get you.  She is obviously jealous of you and is using you (the nice one of the group) to make her relevancy to stay on the show).  UGH she is horrible.  Not pretty and very ugly on the inside.  She professes to love all creatures, anything that God had made -- except People.  Watch out for yourself, she is gunning for you.  The only way to stop her is to stand up to her without bringing yourself down to her level - which is pretty low.  Kyle, just one word of advice, don't lose Lisa as your friend. She really does care for you - don't let the other nemesis Brandi steer you in the wrong direction.  She too is devilish.  The only reason why she and Carlton get along is because they are both very much alike.  Hurtful and jealous people.  When I say jealous I don't mean in the monetary sense, I say it because some people are just mean spirited and miserable, not matter how much they have.  This is true in Carlton's and Brandi case.  Truly mean, ugly people.  Be careful.....

@MEGANEPARIS  Except that you are forgetting one very important point.  Ken hired Mauricio as his agent years ago, when they first moved back to LA from England (I think about 6 or 7 years ago when Pandora began college).  Ken and Mauricio had a professional relationship that turned into a friendship as Mauricio helped him find a house.  Mauricio probably made a big commission on that sale.  Lisa has said that she met Kyle later and they hit it off and became great friends.  If someone is to believe what you say, Kyle and Mauricio hung around Lisa and Ken after selling them a big fancy house, and stayed friends for years, just waiting and hoping they would need to sell that house eventually?  Does that actually make sense to you?  Mauricio was ranked in the top 3 of all agents in the ENTIRE COUNTRY the year this show started.  Do you think that Kyle had time to negotiate friendships just based on economic opportunity and then dump them?  This makes no sense at all.  Folks use Mauricio because he is really good. If they were just using Ken and Lisa, why didn't they dump them after they sold him their house years ago.


There could easily be another argument that could be made.  When Lisa and Ken moved to town, why did they go to the Hilton Agency?  They were hoping to make a big splash in BH.  Who is to say they didn't cultivate a relationship with someone close to the Hilton's in order to make contacts with money?  Paris Hilton might have done a lot to sully the name of Hilton, but in BH that name is still extremely powerful.  If you are hoping to move with the heavy hitters in BH, you could do far worse than to get to know Kathy Hilton's sister.  Clearly, that is all speculation, but it makes as much sense as what you are saying.  Trust me when I say that Lisa and Ken have benefited more from this relationship than Kyle and Mauricio have.  Remember that Lisa is only on this show because she was recommended by Kyle.

Yes they have both talked about each other, the difference is you will hear Lisa stick up for Kyle when she knows it's the right thing to do.  Kyle has never stuck up for Lisa.  I don't worship Lisa but I give her credit for speaking her mind without it turning into a shouting match

@bergshamDont agree...Brandi is a sympathy manipulator, but she is an amateur compared to Kyle, Kyle is the biggest backstabbing stirring manipulator there is...the huge smirk on her face of satisfaction when Brandi was bad mouthing Lisa...just like a little girl in a playground when someone gets put down she does not like....and this is the person who keeps on saying she wants to be friends.....yea right...

@chelliejean

This isn't about Carlton any more.  Kyle has once again shown her true colors & I hate to admit it but Carlton is right about her.  It is very obvious now that Kyle never tried to become a friend to Lisa again.  With Brandi & Kyle, I'm not sure who is using who?!

Alycat9705

@lifeisshort48 Lisa said that because she was hurt.  She felt that their relationship changed drastically after Mo sold their house & collected his commission check.  Honestly, I don't blame her for feeling that way, especially since Lisa saw Kyle growing closer to Adrienne (and sticking up for Adrienne) once her marriage started to fall apart.  Maybe they could smell a new listing in the air.  I'd probably feel the same way as Lisa. 

PleaseshowarealHW
PleaseshowarealHW

@piperbeau  You are going to have to help me out here.  How does she "constantly bring it up?


The first time they met at the Chamber deal, Kyle didn't bring it up.  When Carlton came to her house for lunch, she didn't bring it up.  When they did the gymnastic deal, she didn't bring it up.  When they were in Palm Springs, she didn't bring it up (someone else did, and she talked about it quite openly in the pool).  When they did the defense class, she didn't bring it up.  When they went shopping together, she didn't bring it up.  As far as I can ascertain, she has brought it up during the lunch at Carlton's house surrounded by all the religious stuff, and then she asked if her her ink was a Jewish Star (not sure how this could be considered rude to talk about religion in this context.  It was a religious symbol that she had inked into her skin, just not the one Kyle thought).  Then it came up at Lisa's party.  I think you need to rethink the "constant' part of the statement.

@msant2012honestly I cannot see or understand why Carlton would be jealous of Kyle! Carlton has everything in her life, a gorgeous and adoring husband and provider (who most women & gays, would kill, lie and cheat to have), her beautiful children and a stable happy home! Unlike Kyle, Carlton is not consumed by wealth, luxury brands and status!


Jealousy may be over the constant hair tossing??!

@msant2012  I disagree! I think Carlton watched past seasons and saw who Kyle really is - cruel to her own sister, back stabbed her bff Lisa, etc…. She saw her true colors and didn't like her.

Kyle spends too much time whinning about why Lisa doesn't like her to have time to defend her. I've never seen a grown woman so desperate and needy for validation.

@ParkerStratton  Lisa does not always stick up for Kyle. When Brandi and "Crazlton" were attacking Kyle, Lisa usually laughed which makes it appear tat she agreed with their actions. I like both Lisa and Kyle and think they have the possibility of a true friendship if they  stop throwing shade at each other. Brandi, on the other hand, would not recognize loyalty or friendship if both bit her on her skinny ass. She has it in her mind that YoYo is more suitable for her purpose at this time (maybe she thinks that she will become the next housewife to make a song with David's help?). Kyle, you may want to give some thought to  the old saying "once a snake, always a snake" .

RHJunkie417
RHJunkie417

@Alycat9705 @lifeisshort48  That would make Lisa like Brandi wouldn't it (Saying mean things because someone hurt you)? I personally wouldn't welcome Lisa if she is turning back to our friendship now only because everyone else is attacking her, its too little too late! There are times when I really like Lisa and then I see the sneaky manipulative side of her.. still on the fence with her. Is Kyle not allowed to befriend Adrienne while she goes through martital issues? Many people can say it was so Mauricio could get the listing, but you'd have to be out of your mind to think Lisa doesn't befriend someone that could assist her in any way. Lisa has been passive aggresive with Kyle this whole time, and now that Brandi and Yo are turning on her its time to stick up for Kyle with Carlton? Not buying it. Kyle has made several attempt to mend things with Lisa, but Lisa holds on to her grudges too tight. I remember Kyle insisting Lisa get a mamogram a few seasons ago, now how does that help her look better, it doesn't, it was a genuine concern for someone she saw as a friend.

@bravochic @msant2012 Whatever her true colors are, they are nothing compared with the dark colors exemplified by Carlton. So what you are saying is that it's understandable that Carlton would base her dislike of a woman she never met before based on past shows that she was not a part of! Got it!
