Kyle Richards addressed Erika Girardi's divorce on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen this week. During her appearance on the Wednesday (June 23) episode of WWHL, Kyle shared some new insight into what it was like to be around Erika as they were in the midst of Season 11 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, during which Erika confirmed the end of her marriage.
"We were just getting information as it was unfolding, and we still don't know everything," Kyle noted during her Clubhouse appearance. Crystal Kung Minkoff and Kathy Hilton also appeared as guests on Wednesday's WWHL, and they shared their support for Erika as well as their reactions to the divorce news, which you can watch in the clip, above.
During an appearance on The Daily Dish podcast earlier this month, Kyle said how she reacted to getting a text from Erika in which she confirmed her life update following the cast's trip to Lake Tahoe. "When we were in Tahoe, we didn't know anything was going on with her, [that] she was having any issues, so when we got that text, we were shocked," she said.
Kyle added during an appearance on WWHL that same week that in Tahoe, she didn't feel like there were hints being dropped about the big life news Erika was about to share, though she added, "But in her [Erika's] interview bites, I definitely felt like she was giving some hints there, yes."
During an appearance on WWHL last month, Garcelle Beauvais showed her support for Erika. "It was shocking. It was absolutely shocking. I mean, you don't wish this on your worst enemy. So to have Erika going through all that and the fact that, like Kyle said, the fact that she showed up, I don't know if I would have showed up, honestly," Garcelle shared in the episode, which featured the RHOBH cast without Erika. "The fact that she showed up, I think, was really tremendous on her part."
Erika has been open about her personal ups and downs this season. In a season premiere moment, first shared with Bravo Insider members, Erika opened up about her personal struggles in the last year during the COVID-19 pandemic.
"Like all of us, I'm busy all of the time, and when I came home from New York, it was really silent. And then when I didn't have anything to do, I was walking the halls of the house, and I couldn't sleep," Erika opened up to her fellow Beverly Hills Housewives in the RHOBH Season 11 premiere. "And I couldn't shake it, and I couldn't shake it. I was feeling this incredible dread. Who am I if I'm not working? Every day, I woke up, and I dreaded waking up."
