‘RHOBH:’ Kyle Richards Reveals Where Her Friendship Stands with Lisa Vanderpump
By now most fans of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills have a pretty good inkling that Lisa Vanderpump is on the outs with most of the cast. While animosity amongst cast members is common, one friendship breakdown seems to be especially tough.
Both Vanderpump and cast member Kyle Richards shared a close bond throughout the series. The two were at odds during a few seasons, but seemed to come back together and forged an even stronger bond. Or so we thought.
When Richards appeared on Live with Kelly and Ryan, she summed up the season in one word. “Deceitful, she says. Richards said she didn’t want to apply the word toward one particular cast member. So host Ryan Seacrest asked about her relationship with Vanderpump. What did Richards say?
This isn’t the first time Vanderpump was on the outs with the cast
During season 4 and 5, Vanderpump was brawling with Richards over her relationship with former friend Brandi Glanville. She also got into it with most of the women as well. Vanderpump was even brought to tears while vacationing with the women in Puerto Rico. She even left suddenly in the middle of the night.
Vanderpump also finds herself in a pickle with the ladies in season 6. She gets wrapped up in gossip about former cast member Yolanda Foster (now Hadid) having Lyme disease. Richards feels as though Vanderpump tries to pawn the gossip off on her, which doesn’t sit well with her.
Vanderpump was a ‘no show’ at Andy Cohen’s baby shower
Richards recently co-hosted a baby shower for Bravo producer Andy Cohen. Ladies from The Real Housewives were invited to attend, but Vanderpump was noticeably missing. Richards joked with TMZ that you’d have to pay Vanderpump to get her to attend.
Vanderpump caught wind of Richards’ comments and fired back. She said she was in Vegas during the baby shower. Plus she finds it funny Richards says she’d need to be paid considering she has two shows and a slew of businesses. Vanderpump connected with Cohen prior to the shower to wish him well and give him a a cashmere blue blanket and a teddy bear.
Richards comments shouldn’t come as a surprise
Ryan Seacrest asked Richards about her relationship with Vanderpump. Richards joked about how Cohen must have trained Seacrest for the interview. But she answered, “My status right now with Lisa is not good,” she replied. “I’m sad to say we’re not speaking at the moment.”
Seacrest pressed Richards about a possible reconciliation with Vanderpump in the future. Many Real Housewives have had horrible spats and end up patching their relationship. “I really hope so,” Richards said. “Because I care about Lisa and we’ve been friends for a long time.”
Ripa summed it up. “If season one through eight taught us anything, they can always get back together.”
