The RHOC star weighs in on Tattoo Gate.

on Jan 22 - The Dish0

The war between The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Kyle Richards and Carlton Gebbia continues and at the center of this week's battle was Carlton's new tattoo. At Carlton's pool party, Kyle asked to sneak a peek at the new ink—a pentagram encircled by Carlton's children's names—and asked if it was a Jewish star.

Carlton was less then pleased. "Are you f---ing kidding me?" she asked, before going on to say "I think Kyle is calculated in what she says. I know the symbol of the Star of David, I know what that looks like. You cannot mistake the two. You can't…Bad girl. Your faith should be disappointed in you."

But it's Kyle who has tweeted a retort, claiming that she only asked because half the star was covered by Carlton's bikini and a microphone. "I certainly wouldn't [be] trying to insult Carlton by asking if it's a Jewish Star when I AM Jewish," she wrote.

And it's none other than The Real Housewives of Orange County's Heather Dubrow who has jumped to Kyle's defense. "Her, not you :)" she replied to Kyle and called Carlton's reaction "an odd response."

 

 

Kyle also defended herself on last night's episode, saying, "If anyone should be offended here, it should be me. If someone who's Jewish says, 'Oh, is that a Jewish star?' You don't turn around and say, 'Are you f***ing kidding me?' Um, hello. That's offensive."

What was more offensive? Kyle's question or Carlton's response? Sound off below.

Just one question. WHO cast Carlton on this show? She is revolting! She is offended by Kyle saying "three-fourths of a nipple"? No she isn't, or she wouldn't have exploited her hired help who were paid to stand naked and painted greeting guests at her pool party. PLEASE!! She is a walking contradiction. Kyle, you are right. She is disgusting and you should just stay away. And Bravo, Andy, whomever, please find us a better character for next season.....

Is that Heather permanently  plugged  into an electric socket?  Hope that's not her husbands work.

Team Kyle for sure! Would never want to have anything to do with witchy Carlton. Kyle asked a question and Carlton's response/reaction was so offensive to the Jewish faith.  Carlton keeps preaching acceptance of her Wicca religion but frowns down on any other religion.

I love Carlton and Brandi.  They are not fake.  They state it how it is and I love that about them.

Lets face it...Carlton just does not like Kyle...but Kyle, does come out with some stupid ignorant statements, highlighting her lack of intelligence, so, its easy pickings for Carlton to call her a moron.... but if Kyle is going to push her Jewish faith on us now, she should realise its called The Star of David, not the Jewish star...and be able to recognise it... her televised Shabbat was a farce...did she not learn anything in her 5 minute 'conversion' The Jewish faith is to be taken seriously (like all religious beliefs) and not to be exploited and used on a part time basis, purely for 'air time'...for one thing, the 'camera's should have never been allowed there....and someone should inform her that the Bat Mitzvah is for her daughter, not an excuse for Kyle to hold any party...its not about her....still...she desperately needs the camera time

Carlton definitely showed disgust at the thought of her tattoo being a Jewish star. I wish Kyle would stop being so nice to her and ignore her like she's not even there.

Carlton is disgusting. I really hope she is a ONE SEASON wonder. It's hard to watch her.

Carlton is creepy. If she was a he they'd call her a dirty old man. when she leers and puts her hands of these younger women makes my skin crawl.

Team Kyle. I cannot stand Carlton. Feel like changing the channel when she's on. Can't wait till she's gone.

Kyle can appear vaucuss but Carlton is written as consistently arrogant, self absorbed/vain and mean spirited.  She (and Brandi) bring little of value to the show..  I hope they get written out.

Carlton is offensive and rude . . . she wouldn't know a high road if she saw one.

Kyle.. Heather says it all!!   You, Kim and Joyce are all beautiful women.  Carlton and Brandi have shown their intimidation of being around you this year.   They are out of their league.  As the Countess's song says "money can't give you class".    I don't have a fraction of what they do, nor would I want it if it meant behaving on stripper poles, and speaking like they do.   Stay true to who you are.  Love watching you , Kim , Joyce and loved Heather too!  Use to like Lisa... but am questioning her take on friendships.

Team Kyle all the way! Most viewer can't stand Carlton and find her behavior Vile and REVOLTING!!! Please Bravo, give your loyal viewers and Housewives fans some respect! We don't deserve seeing this trash week after week. This isn't Mob Wives but it has gotten to resemble something of that sort. Carlton in my view is Satanic, not just a witch.  I will not waste my time on this show if Carlton is brought back next season.

Carlton is about as smart as Brandi.  She is a adark Wiccan.  But know this she has no power because she is pure hatefulness.  Good will always defeat her.

Kyle made a mistake. If you look close you can see the mic, wire, and the bikini strings. Carlton was soooooo rude and offensive. She just LOVES to hate Kyle for no apparent reason. Carlton you keep looking like such an idiot and completely delusional the when you describe your take on events.

Lisa, I am very disappointed with you for the last 2 years. You have turned mean spirited and "click-like" in high school. You may say it's the show but, someone who I wanted as a friend or someone to "go to" as when you started, is NOT who you are today. You treat Joyce awful. You do take up for Brandy all the time. She has been having trouble since the day she came on the show. She is a drunk! She is foul mouth. She is beautiful, but, she is so ugly in actions and words. So, give Joyce some slack. She is a beautiful person. It makes it look like YOU ALL ARE JEALOUS! Except Kyle and Kim. The person you were is at SUR, bring her back!!!

Absolutely Team Kyle, all the way!!!

And, Carlton should be ashamed of herself for playing her petty little baby games by trying to 'put a hex' on Joyce! What a ridiculous thing to do! An NO Carlton, you can't put a hex on someone like that. Plus she once said she only dabbled in "white magic". This would be "black magic" so she a big freaking liar to boot!!!

But anyone knows, there is no such thing as white magic anyway, all magic is black!!! if you dabble in magic it is against Gods will, and is wrong. So Joyce and Kyle, don't worry about Carlton, she is just a lost soul who is not following God, or I should say, is not one of God's chosen.

Kyle mistaking her tattoo for the Star of David is an honest mistake, Carlton was the one being rude with her reaction.

Lets get a few items cleared up ,  a pentagram has 5 points vs a star of david tha has 6 points.  BUT OVER ALL Carlton nees correction herself,  because she has a PENTACAL (a pentagram with in circle) .

It sure is a really stupid question to ask a person that you know isn't Jewish!

@danielleohio they are the fakest and most hypocritical of them all!  What was with brandi's outfit at the pool party?  She looked like super mario!

@Spinner22 She has mentioned in past episodes that she converted from Catholicism to Judaism for her husband. With all the witch talk, why shouldn't Kyle be allowed to show a little snippet of her celebrating her faith with her family? You seem to be like Carlton and judge with no reason to judge. Be nice!

@msmith76  Truth be known Brandi and Carlton probably knew each other before Carlton came on the show.

@fernaa6 Can't STAND Carlton!  She disgusts me.  She is just WAITING to jump on Joyce and Kyle for the same things her trashy buddy, Brandi does.  Definitely NOT the caliber of Kyle and Lisa, so she NEEDS TO GO.  Actually tired of RHBH this year.  They don't need to have TRASH on to get ratings.  If Brandi and Carlton are back next session...I"M DONE!

@fernaa6 Carlton and Kyle have not seen eye-to-eye since the beginning of the season. They both take things the other person says negatively and makes a much bigger deal than is needed.

@Zaworski Carlton is just looking for something to bitch and Kyle about - guess she realizes that she doesn't have the beauty of the other women; doesn't have the class...so she has to result in being a "B" to get air time!  What a JOKE she is.  What was Bravo thinking when they cast her?  She's not just hideous, she's nasty!  And what's p with her 70 yr old "Baby-talk" friend?  Are you kidding me???  She and her "gang" are so pathetic!!!!

@fiesta not really, I've seen a lot of people who have tattoos that they, themselves don't understand...believe it or not.

@fiesta Obviously part of it was covered up like Kyle said. And it was an honest question as she was obviously surprised by what she thought she saw. And Carltons response was stupid - just showing you her contempt for Kyle.... Go Kyle!!!!!

@fiesta It's even more stupid to react the way Carlton did to someone who is Jewish!

Spinner22

@Dynex @Spinner22 That's the whole point...she starts using her part time faith to get more air time..its not a competition.....and the Shabbat was just for the camera's,   she is such a phony..and I am definitely not like Carlton, but you have to be blind not to see what a fake she is....she dont even live in Beverly Hills as she keeps saying

@thecrows@promotepeace@fiestaBritney Spears has Hebrew words tattooed on her and she's not Jewish.  My aunt is Christian and celebrates Passover. So Carlton having a Jewish star is not a far stretch.

@thecrows No need to lie. Kyle did not know what it was as some of it was covered up.
