Kyle Richards is defending herself. As the latest The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills episode aired on Tuesday night, Kyle denied that she ever doubted that Yolanda has Lyme disease. Lisa Rinna made that accusation during a beach chat with Eileen Davidson. During that conversation, Lisa R. also claimed that Lisa Vanderpump encouraged her to publicly bring up the debate regarding Yolanda’s illness.
As Lisa R.’s conversation with Eileen aired, Kyle expressed disbelief.
Ok, this beach scene is really unbelievable ...— Kyle Richards (@KyleRichards) March 9, 2016
Kyle maintained that Lisa R. was the first one to bring up Munchausen syndrome. Kyle tweeted that she doesn’t understand why she’s being dragged into the drama.
Kyle admitted that she and Lisa V. had “conversations” regarding Yolanda’s “dramatic” Instagram posts, but said that she never doubted that Yolanda has Lyme disease.
Kyle also made clear that she thinks that Lisa R. is just trying to shift the blame on others by tweeting that people need to take responsibility for their own actions.

On the latest episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Eileen Davidson voiced her displeasure with Lisa Rinna for acting shocked and disagreeing when she said that Erika Girardi gave her opinion that Lisa Vanderpump is a manipulator who gets others to do her dirty work for her. Lisa R. actually agreed with Eileen that Lisa V. can be manipulative. Lisa R. said that she has been protecting Lisa V. Lisa R. then dropped her bombshell claim regarding Lisa V. and Kyle Richards.
According to Lisa R., both Lisa V. and Kyle talked a lot about whether Yolanda had Munchausen or was otherwise faking her Lyme disease. Lisa R. added that Lisa V. and Kyle sent pictures back and forth to one another, presumably the “dramatic” Instagram posts that Kyle admitted to in her tweet, regarding Yolanda’s Lyme disease. Lisa R. also implied that Lisa V. and Kyle laughed about Yolanda’s dramatics.
“I know. I really tried to be Lisa’s cheerleader because I really do love her in so many ways. But she really has done some things and I wanna be honest about it now cause I feel like I was protecting her and I’ve been protecting her…She has some control over me in that area and I allow it. I kept quiet because I was hoping to protect a friendship. I do think Lisa’s been manipulative but I think a lot of people have been manipulative. Both Lisa and Kyle talked plenty about Yolanda and whether she had Munchausen or whether she was faking it and they sent pictures back and forth to each other. Pictures back and forth to each other, giggling, absolutely. Lisa doesn’t do her own work. That’s manipulation right there.”
In her confessional interview, Lisa R. said that Lisa V. actually called her and encouraged her to publicly bring up the subject of Yolanda possibly faking it.
“I got a call from Vanderpump. She knew I engaged in a conversation with someone who said, ‘I think Yolanda has Munchausen,’ and Lisa encouraged me to express it. 100%.”
In her latest blog post, Lisa R. owned up to the fact that she was the one who used the word Munchausen. Yet she maintained that Lisa V. and Kyle did question Yolanda’s illness and that Lisa V. did encourage her publicly talk about Yolanda’s illness.
“I fully own the fact that I brought up the Munchausen convo that I had with my hairdresser…when I brought it to Kyle and LVP, they were the first ones to bring up the inconsistencies about Yolanda and her illness! LVP called me and encouraged me to share the conversation I had with my hairdresser. I own the fact that I was the one to use the word Munchausen…I take full responsibility for bringing the topic up…But LVP simply needs to own the fact that she encouraged me.”
As for what Yolanda Foster thinks, she blogged that Lisa R.’s “revelations” are “shocking.”
So it seems that viewers will see Lisa Vanderpump and Kyle Richards joined against Lisa Rinna at the Season 6 The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion show, which films soon. Or will Kyle and Lisa V. turn on one another after someone pits them against each other? On Sunday, Kyle posted an image that made it clear that she expects the upcoming reunion show filming to be a very scary one.
