Kyle Richards

Kyle defends Mauricio and her relationship with her sister and reflects on this difficult season.

on Apr 3, 20130

Just in case one Reunion wasn't enough torture, here we go again. . .

I was still in absolute shock that Yolanda went out of her way to be so mean to me. We had never had ANY issues. It felt to me that there was a planned "attack" on me and she was sticking to the plan.

The thing that bothers me the most in life is a lie. I am not perfect and do make mistakes. But lying is something you will never see me do. I lost any respect I had for Yolanda when she wasn't able to tell truth.

Talking about Adrienne and Paul is complicated. Like I said at the Reunion, Adrienne and I were never "best friends," but we had gotten to know each other over these past few years. Adrienne was always nice to me. However, we had actually become closer to Paul. Mainly because Paul reached out to us more than Adrienne and Paul is my mother-in-law's doctor.

There have been a lot of accusations against Paul by Adrienne and stories "leaked" by Adrienne's chef Bernie. Andy asked about Bernie posting pictures of Paul's alleged "abuse" and asked if I believed it was true or not and I answered honestly. No, I don't. That is my opinion. I knew the moment I said that that I would be the next victim of Bernie.

Sure enough, the moment it was known that I had said that, false stories started popping up about me on the Internet. Although predictable, it was disappointing and hurtful, considering I had tried to support Adrienne. I had to be honest about how I felt regarding those accusations. It should also be noted that when Andy asked me that question, Mauricio was working with Adrienne. So much for Lisa's theory that I nurture my friendship's for business.

"But lying is something you will never see me do" we saw you lie to Lisa about how game night went down. Remember? You are a liar.

OMG..I just saw the previews of the upcoming season of RHOBH and was SOOOOOOO dissapointed to see that you are still a cast member.  I was so hoping that Bravo would come to their senses and not have you and your lame sister return for another season.  Guess I'll be doing lots of fast forwarding through your appearances.

I am looking forward to the new season.....kind off, LOL.   Please make sure that you have that wonderful, eye candy hubby of yours in as many episodes as possible.  He is so handsome.  I can see that some of the other cast members are verrrrry jealous of you and Mauricio and will stop at nothing to tear you apart.  Do not let that happen.

And for Lisa's sake, I hope she learns her lesson and never allows you into her inner circle ever again. Lisa's weak point is her tendency to believe whoever she feels close to. So she is easily fooled, like by you and that man who stayed at her house for a while. But all in all, she is a better friend than you will ever be. Stick with the likes of Taylor, Faye, and Dana. You guys are of the same vein.

I have sort of been interested in Kyle from the beginning, but was wary of really putting my loyalty to her. But my defenses have just about been worn down. I have always thought she was fun and sharp, but I am beginning to sense that she really is also nice, and that she doesn't have all those bad qualities I was fearing might show themselves to be integral parts of her character.      Conversely, I have been taken with Lisa from the beginning. I thought she was intelligent, thoughtful and had so much integrity.  But I have been increasingly saddened or at least confused by a number of actions which seemed not to be in line with her character. I don't know if she is going through something. I think I have seen her abandon the high ground a number of times this season, and I feel so badly for Kyle that she has these problems with Lisa. Obviously, I do not know what has gone on between them, and if Lisa feels Kyle has done something, which makes it hard for her to quickly forgive her.    So I do not feel I can totally blame one or the other.    I just felt, as an outsider, watching the time when Kyle and Lisa were sitting outside, and talking about their relationship, Lisa didn't seem to be the person she usually is, and Kyle seemed to be very committed to fairness and forgiveness and trying to heal the relationship.   When Lisa said, "if you really are sorry, ask my forgiveness right now," or something like that, and Kyle said "I won't take orders like that" or something, I felt Lisa was so far over the line.   And as Kyle continued to speak, I so much saw she wanted to patch up things for real, and take responsibility for her actions, but Lisa didn't seem to see the genuineness and honesty in Kyle, and seemed to think it was an act or not to the point of what Lisa thought should be said, or something...      It was very sad.  I hope Lisa comes to her senses and accepts their relationship..    Again with the caveat that I do not know what has happened between them in the past. That "hurtful" action Lisa refers to.

Kyle , now that you admit Bernie lied about Paul, can you please admit he lied about Lisa? He fed Rador Online stories which Adrienne put him up to.It is so painful to see you and Lisa not be friends since you were such good friends Season One. She always stood by you. She's a good person and I, personally,  would never want to lose a friend like that. Or Yolanda, they are the women of substance on the show. Level headed, successful in life and marriage.  Stylish and sophisticated, witty. They have it all. You are being left with the bottom feeders like Faye and Taylor. And that doesn't say a lot about you. Not that continually attacking poor Kim left you any sympathy in a lot of peoples books....Try to patch things up with Lisa, you were a fun duo to watch. Now its just Faye, a beautiful face with and ugly mouth cornering people. Ugh.

And face it, Yolanda is right. She's a woman of substance , try to stay friends. If anything happens with you and Maurice, Lisa and Yolanda and probably Brandi will be right there for you.

Dear Kyle. I have just finished watching the last season. Please stay friendly with Lisa as she will need you when Brandi betrays her like she did Adrienne ! What was Bravo doing inviting someone like her onto the show ? I think with her on the show the viewers will start to switch off. I hope you and your family are well :-)

I thought you were besties with Adrienne but at the reunion when the topic of her coming up you kinda brushed the friendship off as 'not really' - Is it because her and Paul have now seperated? Did you help sell her house too? I find you untrustworthy and the root of all gossip.

Hi Kyle,

I think you are a great person and I soloute you for everything that you have been through but you haven't always been there for your sister. When Kim and Taylor had a fight at Taylor's party you didn't have her back and you didn't back her on anything and most of what Taylor was saying was horrible and you still took her side. I don't know what it is with Taylor but I really don't like her at all. She asks for trouble so I would be careful what you say around her cause she will try to use it to make trouble.

Kyle & Mauricio, you and your family are a power pack.  Love your love for family,commitment and honesty (or as honestly as you can be with wolves scratching your back!).   I wish you guys the best and I support those who radiate a positive way of life.  RHOBH is the best of the housewives franchise... and I look forward to watching the next season(s).  NOT looking forward to seeing Lisa, Brandi, and lastly, Yolanda. 

 

Thank you for the rollercoaster (in a good way).

You are in HAWAII, and you complain about the "cheap" transport airplane.  Sickening.  Of course, the joke is really on me.  It's not likely I'll ever go to Hawaii, and I'm also watching RHWBH on a Friday night.  LAME.

Oh, Kyle.  You're in for a world of hurt.  You've got the gruesome threesome ganged up on you:  Yolanda, Brandi, and Lisa.  Lisa is mean as hell but Yolanda is worse and Brandi is the worse.  Too bad for you that your potential allies Camille and Adrienne decided to not come back.

Sadly for you, your audience has outsmarted you..... Seeing that you think you started the show, and it being only natural that you would want to remain relevant, you should embrace your inner villain, at least you would be speaking your truth, and that in and of itself, is a quality to be admired. Since the first plan of yours, being to be just plain admired, hasn't seemed to work out for you.

Hi Kyle, I've watched the show ever since and you have always been MY FAVORITE and I've always wanted to tell you this but I am not one to post to blogs & etc but wanted to make this exception JUST FOR YOU!  It's so clear and evident you were raised with so much love and your love and commitment to your family, friendships and living life to the fullest with joy has always radiated!!!  You are so clear on your priorities in life and so grounded on what is most important and you are fun as heck and create wonderful, joyful moments (as life should be lived) for all and everyone that you touch.  You are AMAZING!!!!  You are RIGHT, YOUR INTERNAL DIAL is always spot on.  I am sad you and Lisa are no longer close.  Lisa is a much more colder and calculated person than you (you operate from your feelings whereas Lisa operates from what makes intellectual sense) and so as she doesn't operate from her feelings, no matter how much she misses you, I don't think she'll be able to get passed the wrong, hurt, and betrayal she feels you've caused.  I will miss you two having wonderful fun together.  Please stay true to what you know is right and is the truth -- you internal dials are exceptional and are always spot on!!  I truly admire and enjoy the wonderful you that comes through the TV!!!  XOXO!

I just saw a rerun of Game Night for the very first time, along with the following episodes. I was shocked that afterwards you were talking to everyone about Brandi's bad behavior. I have rallied against the word bullying on the Housewives series because it is so misused. But this was a real case of mean girls bullying someone. You and Kim were awful to Brandi. Her responses were wrong, but I can sure understand why she said what she did. I would hope you learned from this, but from what I have seen you haven't. At the reunion you still took no responsibility for the crutch incident. Stop making excuses and own your behavior. First season Camille, then Brandi, and always Kim. It is sad really.

Kyle you are the only one in watching any of these shows that I can honestly say I find to be honest and have an honest relationship with your husband and children. You can not please everyone or your sister, you need to worry about yourself and your husband, and if walking away from your grown sister, it may just have to be, believe me I know. People like Brandy, bottom feeders, who, go from friend to friend, she doesn't have a real person in her life, even her children will be sickened by her and the way she acts when they are old enough and thank goodness they actually have the father and step mother they do. But take a step back and see how lucky you are with what you have and see how all else means nothing, and just walk away because their lives are empty.

Kyle, I hope you are not leaving the show. It is you and Kim that made me want to come visit Beverly Hills and Rodeo Drive this month. My husband and I celebrated our 2nd Anniversary in Las Vegas. I have always wanted to see LA and Beverly Hills since I was a child. He rented a convertible and we drove from Vegas to LA and I finally got to walk down Rodeo Drive. I love your town. I hope things go better this season. I hope Kim's challenges become easier for her and you both get to be close sisters again. I adore you both. You two are the only ones on the show that seem to possess honesty and common sense. I wish they would take Brandi off the show, she is a little dingy and does not know how to filter things she says so instead of sounding like an idiot and trucker, she could say things more intelligent. Again, I wish you, your family, and Kim and her family, best wishes. I again want to thank you for bringing Beverly Hills to us all!

I adore you!  I think you make the most sense of all the housewives.  Not only that your husband is FINE!  

 

I'm either marrying Ryan Gosling or Mauricio, and Mauricio is already married so I guess I'll have to take the Gosel-hawk.

Kyle,

You may want to consider attending AL-ANON if you aren't already doing so.   It would help you make some sense of your sister's alcohol problems and help you find healthier boundarie with her and others.  You are a great caretaker but that overresponsibility is a burnout proposition for you and this type of codependence may hurt you and Kim.  Second, alchoholism doesn't occur in a vacuum and everyone in the family is impacted: the family's adaptation to the family member's recovery is going to be difficult.  Also, you may want to join Kim for some family sessions.

could someone please explain y Kyle gets ripped apart for saying whats on her mind. But alot of people look the other way when brandi talks Sh88? DOES ANYONE WATCH THE LOOKS ON BRANDI'S face with that shiT** smirk on her face when she drops a bomb like at the reniun. she'd sit there and let everyone come to defend her!!!PLEASE tired of Brandi

Kyle I also lost both parents and know how hard it can be. Parents keep family together without them you feel lost. Me and my sister have the same relationship as you and Kim we love each other so much but it can be hard sometimes. Your a great person and have a great family see you next season :)

kyle,

 

I always thought your family was the most sincere. Isn't it amazing what a few seasons have revealed?? I've noticed that your husband Mauricio has been turning into a real housewife, hanging around the women, gossiping. And now he's getting into cat fights with other cast members?! That was such a huge turnoff, and forever changed my view of Mauricio. Small wonder that Ken, who is a gentleman, feels like he must defend Brandi. 

 

Does your husband normally pick on vulnerable single mothers, or does he only do this when he stands to make a few cool millions? Either way, it was truly sad indeed.

 

I wish you and your family would leave the show. I think things could only look up if you bowed out gracefully.

From what I have seen, reality shows such as this one can be very hard on a marriage...on a family! Out of everybody on this show I feel as though you have the most to lose! If I were you I would cut these ruthless bitches loose and enjoy my life with my children and husband! Life is too precioues and too short to waste anymore time on these people!

wonetah.einfeldt
wonetah.einfeldt

it is interesting that Mauricio was so abusive and offensive to skanky brandi that cusses everyone but when adriennes husband doctor paul called her  a bitch noone was horrified. get over it he just checked her and it wasn't all that uncommon, what is uncommon is watching men Mauricio and Ken constantly hanging out with a bunch of catty bitchy old rich women GO TO A GAME GUYS!

 @polishmom me too...hugely disappointed that the Bitchard Sisters were back... The pair of them are just a waste of space.... I know this is an old blog and very soon she will be writing her usual BS, but I had to smile when she wrote and I quote,," But lying is something you will never see me do."...taking into account, this is coming from the biggest lying, phony, hypocrite on the show....amazing...!!!!!

@rosyposy why is it you are always saying people are jealous of each other? Why do you always assume that others want to tear apart marriages? No one has even hinted that they want to tear up Kyle's marriage. Wow, try being positive once in awhile.

By the time Brandi in done with Lisa, She'll be running back to Kyle. What did Brandi call Lisa? Oh yes! Puppet Master!

 Re watch that episode. It goes the exact opposite. Lisa wanted any kind of support from Kyle and Kyle refused to give it, no one can make me say that. So in the end she sidestepped every chance to be a friend to Lisa but chose to defend Adrienne for the opportunity to get her business.

 @rudy90210 Couldn't agree more; you certainly are not who you think you are to the fans of this show - you're no Lisa or Brandi or Yolanda - THEY are the women we admire; certainly not the likes of yourself or Adrienne.

 I'd be happy to explain it. Kyle DOESN'T say what's on her mind.  She trash talks people (Brandi) to lizard face Faye, and Faye parrots back Kyle's sentiments.  Brandi may speak her mind, but  rather have a friend/aquantiance like her, any day.  She even trash talks about her sister!!! Please!

 @wonetah.einfeldt   You call Brandi a name for using cuss words, yet you justify what  Adrienne, Paul or Mauricio's actions were towards Brandi?!   WOW, I think you fit in with them very well.

 

After all, Adrienne and Paul's demise speaks for itself!  Mauricio has still more clients to slithers upon.

suzyq1234:  Jealousy is what drives many of these wives.  I think that is what Bravo must look for.  Jealousy and backbiting brings the drama that some tune in for.  I just happen to be one that dislikes jealous, conniving women...and WHO WILL CONTINUE TO CALL THEM ON IT WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT.  have a good day. :)

rosyposy

suzyq1234.  Sorry, kiddo.  I call a spade a spade.  These women are catty and driven by jealousy and envy.  That is what causes the drama that drives the show.  And by the way, I hardly need you to tell me how to post.  Buzz off.

@suzyq1234 Some on the show have in have implied or make it seem as if he cheats on her. I think that's what she means

twiddledeedum:  I appluaded Kyle's refusal to bend to Lisa's demands.  Kyle knows both of them much better than any of us.  She fully realized that Lisa just simple decided to destroy Adrienne last season, and recruited Brandi to that end.  Lisa is not the queen, and nobody should bow to her.  I have decided that she is cunning, conniving, and devious to a fault.  Good for Kyle in knowing that, but not really saying it on camera.

MERRYWAY

 @piscesgirl33  @carriet Brandi is just plain vulgar and rude. When Kyle was trying to get to know somenone she makes the cat sound. Rude. Then call any woman a cunt in public what kind of an animal[ no disrespect to the animals] does that? Brandi is the lowest of the lows. Faye was right!!!!

 Mauricio didn't do a DARNED thing to Brandi..   He didn't "YELL" at her he expressed his opinion as to how Brandi can fix it and I think have gave some darned good advice.  Brandi is the one that wigged out.

 @Caligirl77  @Upfront  @wonetah.einfeldt Mauricio chastized Brandi (loudly and in public) for her response to Adrienne's lawyer's letter.  Your advice to just pick up the phone might have carried more weight had ya'll done that to Taylor and Russell b4 the white party.  Practice what you preach.

 @Caligirl77  @Upfront  @wonetah.einfeldt He certainly did yell at her, it was painful to watch. She had no one to stick up for her, thank God Ken came in to her rescue. I hate it when women gang up on women but for a man to? It was shameful. Verbally abusive and shameful. The show is about the Housewives, since when did Mauricio sleaze into it? Now he's horning his way into Million Dollar listing, after leaving his brother in laws company to open his own and compete with the man who gave him his start! What  a sleazy guy. And Kathy had her second hand designer clothes store on one season and Kyle opens a completing one the next! Crazy family. No wonder Kim is a wreck.
