Despite challenges to their friendship, Kyle Richards is here to celebrate the success of her longtime pal Lisa Vanderpump. Lisa's West Hollywood bar and eatery Tom Tom has just officially been named the best bar in Southern California (with an awards ceremony slated for tonight) — and Kyle does not hesitate to acknowledge that the honor is a "well deserved" one for the restauranteur.
When The Feast caught up with Kyle at the joint premiere party for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Mexican Dynasties on February 12 in West Hollywood, we shared the news about Tom Tom's big win. "I didn’t know that," she admitted — but it made plenty of sense to her. "Not only is Tom Tom a great bar with great drinks, it has really good food — excellent food," she told us. "The impossible burger! The food is excellent, the drinks are excellent, and it’s beautiful inside."
And Kyle was quick to register that Tom Tom's success is a reflection of Lisa's experience and expertise. "Lisa really knows what she’s doing," she told us. "Well deserved. Absolutely well deserved."
Recently, Kyle said, "My status with Lisa right now is not good. I'm sad to say that we're not speaking at the moment. I really hope so [that we can speak again someday] because I care about Lisa and we've been friends for a long time and we've been doing this for a long time."
