All About The Tea_Watch What Happens Live - Season 12

Kyle Richards, hung with Andy Cohen in the “Watch What Happens Live” clubhouse last night following the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” finale. She was joined by actor, Jerry O’Connell. Kyle weighs in on the friction with her sister, Kim Richards, the RHOBH Reunion drama and Brandi Glanville.

Host, Andy Cohen, cut to the chase and immediately asks Kyle about Brandi Glanville’s claim that Kyle hurried out of a NYC department store after spotting BrandiKyle said,

“How about, Brandi, don’t get it twisted. She ran out and I was there probably twenty minutes after she left.”

Then, Andy played the infamous footage of Kim and Lisa Rinna’s glass smashing-throat grabbing incident in Amsterdam. Andy questions why Kyle fled the restaurant,

“You can see that I actually took my mic off and threw it. I did not know what was going to happen next. I didn’t want to be there, so I just left.”

Video of the RHOBH Reunion is shown. In the clip, Kyle opens up about not speaking to Kim for three months and Kim’s flippant response about reconciling with Kyle. Kyle responds with, “Obviously going into the reunion you hope for some resolution but I don’t think at this reunion anybody had any resolution.”


Kyle responds to a caller’s question about Lisa Rinna’s recent “not-so-nice” tweets (now deleted) about Kim. “I didn’t see them but I was told and I tweeted that it was very not cool to do that and Lisa texted me an apology.” 

Andy takes another call, this one inquires about Kathy Hilton’s stance on the sisterly divide between Kim and Kyle. Kyle appeared uncomfortable, she squirmed in her seat while responding. 

“That is a very good question. It’s difficult for her, she’s in kind of a complicated position. She’s not there when we are filming, so then we go back and she hears my version and then she hears Kim’s version and then she kind of has to wait and see the show. I think she kind of just feels stuck.”

Sensing Kyle’s trepidation, Andy quickly follows up with “Are things OK between the two of you [Kathy]?” Kyle replies, “I mean everything could be better.”


More questions from callers. Kyle responds to why she cried so much this season.

“I’m a very emotional person. I’m just wired that way. For me to navigate through my relationship with Kim in front of the cameras is extremely complicated. I don’t think the viewers [short pause] it’s not just what you see there, it spills into everything else. My other sister, our twelve children between the three of us, so it’s very difficult.”

Andy takes the final call for the live show, the caller wants to know, does Kyle have a compliment to give Brandi?

“I think Brandi can be a lot of fun. I know that she loves her boys a lot and that’s where I sort of related to her, so I appreciate that side of her.”

The poll question of the evening, “Who’s side are you on? Kim or Kyle?” Kyle wins 66% of the vote. Kim receives 34%.

    Kim probably had a cocktail to cope with her poll loss…

    • MidwestMiddie

      AND, Kyle probably had a cocktail to celebrate her return to the
      good side of Bravo’s polling results.
      Remember last season, Kyle was not liked at all. IMO, Kyle set out
      to restore her reputation by using this old story line. Kim went
      along because she, too, was about to lose her place on Bravo due
      to her being as boring and unlikeable as her sister.
      IMO, they’re, both, worthless and not in the least bit entertaining.

      • Bad Barbie

        One got a serious issue and one doesn’t, and that is very clear.

  • RubyT

    I noticed at the end of the housewives episode, that it said Kim and Kyle haven’t spoken since Kim’s dog bit Kyle’s daughter, giving the impression that that’s the reason for their fall-out. I wonder if Kim has spoken to Kyle’s daughter.

    • MidwestMiddie

      After the dog biting did Kim talk to her niece? One would certainly hope so
      but one would be smart not to put money on it.

      Their family issues certainly are messy ones and they, all, appear to be very happy with airing their “dirty laundry” in public. More ego than brains!!!
      Kathy’s daughter’s wedding is this summer. I wonder if Kathy wants her sisters to attend the wedding?
      For that matter, I wonder if she wants her nasty son to be there?
      Certainly – one or more may cause great embarrassment……….

      Truly, Bravo needs to find a more moneyed, intelligent, interesting and
      beautiful family. The Richards Family stinks!!!

      • Brattus Rattus

        “We don’t air our dirty laundry in public” Says the people that signed up for a realty TV show for what five seasons now? This is brilliant thinking. Makes you wonder what the real drama in that family is.

    • I would highly doubt it. Remember this is Kim we’re talking about. A very emotionally unstable woman with a potential drug/alcohol problem, who always makes excuses for herself, and never takes any responsibility for her actions.

    • Bad Barbie

      Knowing Kim, she is probably mad at her niece for pissing her dog off.

  • Ilivehereandlikeit

    Is it me or from photo stills above, is Kyle starting to resemble Brandi (or vice versa?) Maybe it’s that red lipstick. Kyle also has some of the “waxy” skin look that Brandi’s sporting these days.

    • Brattus Rattus

      Fresh Botox? Might also be the same makeup/hair artist.

      • Ilivehereandlikeit

        Not a very talented makeup artist then if they make up all their clients to look alike – lol!! That said, I wouldn’t put it past these idiots. (These “stars” using the same ungifted people.) I wonder about them, truly 😉

        • Brattus Rattus

          True statement. All that make-up (regardless of who’s doing it) looks cheap and crappy. The only one that is doing fillers that doesn’t look totally horrid is Lisa VP. She goes to a good Dr.

  • Yolie

    Kyle looked gorgeous. Her version of what happened at Sephora was funny and more believable. Kyle has balls and has some them this season. The sister dynamic between her, Kim and Kathy seems highly dysfunctional.

  • Rochelle Barozzi

    After dealing with 2 alcoholic sisters and finally saying enough 2 years ago. They are not in my life. My husband and girls just don’t need it in our lives. That being said…I have way more sympathy for Kyle. There is so much we do not know and can never even begin to w/o having gone through it.

  • I think that after the major backlash both Brandi and Kim have gotten this season, that Bravo needs to fire the dynamic duo, and let’s see how Kim copes with her good girlfriend then in the back of the unemployment line.

  • Susan Thorne Zavagli

    was the dog bite instagram from the hospital just a innocent gesture…Kyle said she didn’t mention whose dog bite Alexia….Kim said it was obvious people would know it was Kingsly ….Kyle knew that too but she won’t admit it …I side with Kim here
