Kyle Richards has called out Lisa Vanderpump’s husband, Ken Todd, for making unkind comments about her. In her latest BravoTV.com blog post, posted on Friday, Kyle said that it “wasn’t very nice” for Ken to make unkind comments about her size and clothing style.
Kyle believes that Ken meant to be mean with his comments. As for why she often wears long, flowy dresses while filming The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Kyle explained that she does that simply because it’s hot. Despite Ken’s comments, Kyle isn’t writing him off.
“Ken making jabs about my size and style wasn’t very nice and seemed quite deliberate. We shoot in the summer and often I will wear loose dresses due to the heat. But I have always cared about Ken and have bigger things to worry about than my clothes right now.”
As the latest episode aired on Tuesday night, and Kyle watched the scene in which Ken made fun of Kyle’s dresses to Lisa, calling them mumus, and Lisa laughingly disagreed. Kyle tweeted that Ken apparently has issues with her clothing, and seems to have talked about it with Lisa before.
In response to one viewer who tweeted Kyle that she does wear a lot of long dresses that hide her figure, Kyle explained that she does it to keep cool during the summer. In response to another viewer who tweeted that a lot of women wear those types of dresses in the summer and that they actually look fashionable, Kyle responded with two clapping hands emojis.
Will Kyle hold Ken’s comments against Lisa? One viewer tweeted that she hopes that Kyle and Lisa’s friendship, which deteriorated in Season 4 but got back on track on Season 5, won’t suffer again because of the comments, Kyle tweeted that “it’s all good.” She added that it takes a lot more than some mean comments for her to give up on a friendship.
Kyle Richards did find some humor in what Ken Todd said. Later on the night, as Lisa Vanderpump walked around a garden in Tuscany wearing a long, flowy dress, Kyle tweeted that it looks as if Lisa herself is wearing a mumu. Lisa is usually shown wearing a tight, sheath dress that ends a little below the knees, but apparently, she found her usual style too constricting for the Italian heat.
In her blog post, Kyle also talked about the family drama that surrounded her attendance at Nicky Hilton’s wedding. Prior to departing to Europe, Kyle told Lisa that she wasn’t going to her niece’s wedding anymore because she had been disinvited. In an interview, Kyle made clear that it was Nicky’s mom, her older sister, Kathy Hilton, who made the decision. She also admitted that her relationship with Kathy wasn’t good. In her blog, Kyle wouldn’t go into the specifics of why Kathy disinvited her, but did contribute Kathy’s decision to the stresses of wedding planning, which brought forth their “family issues.”
“All families go through difficult times, and my family is no exception as you have witnessed if you have followed our lives these past six years. I think especially during the planning of a wedding people seem to be more emotional, and family issues come to the surface.”
Over dinner in Tuscany, Lisa Vanderpump told Kyle that she should cut off ties with her sisters, Kim Richards and Kathy Hilton, because of how they treat her. She also made clear that she wouldn’t attend the wedding if her own husband wasn’t invited. Ken Todd voiced his bewilderment that Kyle’s two middle daughters weren’t invited, either. In her interview, Kyle said that her husband, Mauricio Umansky, wasn’t invited because of “tension” and that her two middle daughters, Sophia and Alexia, weren’t going either because of a no-child policy at the wedding. In her The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills blog, Kyle explained why she, after being invited again, decided to attend the wedding.
“This was Nicky’s big day and my sister Kathy’s first time being the Mother of the Bride. It was their day to plan as they wished. While I am not going to go into the logistics, I will say it was a difficult time. But after speaking with Nicky and at the urging of my husband and daughters, I went to the wedding, and that is all that matters. I knew this was a moment you couldn’t recapture and didn’t want to ever look back with regret.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, sources claim that Mauricio Umanksy is actually banned from all Hilton events because of a work dispute with Kathy Hilton’s husband, Rick Hilton. As for Kathy’s tension with Kyle Richards, that was contributed to Kathy’s displeasure that Kyle is doing a TV show about her life growing up with her family, which presumably will touch upon some issues that Kathy would rather not become public.
