Is Kyle Richards a true friend to Lisa Vanderpump and a loyal sister to Kim Richards? Some viewers of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills don’t think so. They have accused Kyle of betraying Lisa V. and Kim after Lisa Rinna revealed that she and Kyle chatted with one another while on a hike.
Last Thursday, Lisa R. tweeted that she was talking to Kyle on a hiking trail when they bumped into Access Hollywood hosts Billy Bush and Kit Hoover.
Kyle was immediately accused of not being true to Lisa V. and Kim. People asked Kyle how she could hang out with Lisa R. after all of the drama that went down between her and Lisa V., as well as between Lisa R. and Kim, this past season. In response to one person who asked Kyle how her “celebratory” hike with Lisa R. was, suggesting that Kyle and Lisa R. celebrated bringing down Lisa V., Kyle questioned the person’s accusation and maintained that she simply bumped into Lisa R. on the hiking trail.
In response to another person who asked Kyle if she spoke to Lisa R. on the phone since she saw Kyle alone on the hiking trail, Kyle confirmed that she bumped into Lisa R. while on her own hike.
While they didn’t actually plan and go on a hike together, it seems that Kyle Richards and Lisa Rinna are still friends despite what happened between Lisa R. and Kyle’s good friend, Lisa Vanderpump, and Kyle’s sister, Kim Richards. On Tuesday morning, Lisa R. revealed that Kyle sent her a photo via text message that poked fun at her big lips. The photo shows Kyle’s face with Lisa R.’s big lips. Lisa R. humorously warned Kyle that she’ll get her back.
As viewers saw this past Season 6, which concludes tonight with Part 3 of the reunion show, Lisa V. and Lisa R. feuded over whose idea it was to publicly question whether Yolanda Foster has Munchausen syndrome rather than Lyme disease. According to Lisa R., Lisa V. manipulated her into bringing up the conversation that she had with her hair stylist regarding the possibility of Yolanda having Munchausen. Lisa V. has continued to deny this charge. A preview clip shows that viewers will see Lisa R. and Lisa V. continue to argue about the issue on Part 3 of the Season 6 reunion show.
As for Kim, Lisa R. clashed with her both last and this season over Lisa R.’s very public comments about Kim’s sobriety. On Season 5, when Kim suggested over a group dinner in Amsterdam that they talk instead about what Lisa R.’s husband, Harry Hamlin, did, thereby suggesting some inappropriate behavior on his part, Lisa R. threw a wine glass towards Kim and lunged towards her. At the Season 5 reunion show, it was revealed that Lisa R. sent threatening text messages to Kim after the Amsterdam trip.
On Season 6, which Kim made a few appearances on, Lisa R. made some comments during her confessional interviews about how Kim was dangerous and was still in denial about her addiction issues. During their brief face-to-face interactions with one another, Kim and Lisa R. remained civil, but Kim made it clear that they’re not friends and won’t be. On Part 2 of the Season 6 reunion show, which Kim made a brief appearance on, Kim again criticized Lisa R. for her negative comments. Lisa R. maintained that she wants the best for Kim.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Lisa V. revealed last week that Lisa R. actually said that Kyle was Kim’s enabler during her beach chat with Eileen Davidson but it was edited out of the scene.
Will fans see Kyle Richards trying to get Lisa Vanderpump and Lisa Rinna to make amends? Will Kyle lash out at Lisa R. more strongly if she again speaks negatively about Kim Richards? Possibly. In response to All Things Real Housewives’ article stating that Kyle, believing that the show is not good for Kim’s sobriety, is threatening to quit The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills if producers bring Kim back on for another season, Kyle tweeted that it’s not true.
