Beverly Hills reality star Kyle Richards has had a rough season on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Not only has the boutique owner dealt with her and her sister Kim’s strained relationship, she’s also been caught in a number of heated debates with Brandi Glanville.
Following a physical altercation at the Beverly Hills home of Eileen Davidson, Richards and Glanville came face-to-face at Richards’ gay mixer. Although the two women clearly had issues to deal with, Kim chose to invite Glanville to the bash in hopes of them reconciling. Instead, they got into yet another fight and Glanville left the bash early, with Kim in tow.
After leaving the mixer, as the Inquisitr reported, Glanville and Kim chatted together at Glanville’s home, where the mother of two encouraged Kim to distance herself from Richards, and claimed Richards had been manipulating Kim for years.
“It’s unhealthy. The point is, you can distance yourself from her. You can make her have respect for you,” Glanville told Kim in the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills‘ Bravo clip.
Months after the scene was filmed, in a March 12 interview with E! News, Richards confirmed she and her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills co-star, Glanville, would not be giving their friendship another shot.
“I’m the kind of person where I get over everything. I not only forgive, I forget. At this point in my life, it’s too much negativity, and it’s very toxic for me. I know that to be friends with her, it’s just setting myself up to be attacked again. I’m making a conscious decision to keep away because life’s complicated enough.”
The Beverly Hills co-stars have had a dramatic relationship since season two, when Glanville joined the show in a recurring role. At the time, the Richards sisters went head-to-head with Glanville after she claimed Kim was using drugs in a bathroom at the Beverly Hills home of former cast member Dana Wilkey.
“I never imagined it would be like this, ever, when I signed on to do this show. Never in my life. It’s just so difficult to navigate through my relationship with my sister in front of the cameras. We’ve always had a complicated relationship. It’s one thing when we’re alone, but with the cameras there, and millions of people seeing it and all the sudden weighing in, it’s difficult.”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
