I Am Happy This Season Is Over

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

By Kyle Richards

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

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills on Peacock and the Bravo App.

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.

I am still hurt that Lisa made such hurtful accusations. Why didn't Lisa also question why Kim and Camille defended Adrienne? What was their "motive"? There is no doubt I was singled out. I'm not sure if Lisa really thought those things or if she just wanted to get back at me because she was angry. Kim, Camille, and I defended Adrienne because she wasn't there to defend herself, and we felt it was the right thing to do. Period.

Lisa and I had a disagreement off-camera in between shooting Season 1 and Season 2, that led to where we are now. That is why at last years Reunion you didn't see me supporting Lisa like you would have expected me to. Having Lisa and Ken as clients did not stop me from being honest about my feelings -- even if it meant arguing.

Another blow came when Brandi said she didn't think that I wanted my sister to stay sober. Nothing could be further from the truth. My sister's battle with alcohol has been going on for many years. Nobody can even begin to imagine what we have gone through. I will not share those stories with Brandi or anyone else. Even if it means making people understand. It's far too private and painful.

I was grateful that Taylor spoke up for me. Taylor knows much more than Brandi ever will about Kim's and my relationship. She has seen firsthand. She doesn't know everything, but enough to know how much I care about and love my sister.

Kim was upset that I had said she didn't seem "sober." I knew my sister wasn't drinking, but I knew she was not herself. When I used the word "sober," I didn't know that people would associate that only with alcohol. I certainly did not mean that. I knew what was going on with my sister was some kind of medication. Although I didn't know it was an accident, I knew it was NOT alcohol.

Seeing the women go after my husband really bothered me. My husband has so much integrity and is a kind and gentle soul. Even if his voice was loud when he was telling Brandi to pick up the phone and put the Adrienne fight to rest, he doesn't have a violent bone in his body. If people saw the way this man loves and takes care of our four daughters, they would know how ridiculous that is.

I am happy this season is over. There have been a lot of broken relationships and a lot of healing that needs to be done. The true relationships will survive even the most difficult of struggles, and the others will fall by the wayside.

Only time will tell which ones are which. . .

Thank you for watching.
