Kyle Richards, star of “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” posted her final Bravo blog to share her thoughts about the third installment of the reunion show. It’s interesting to note, the Bravo blog went live on April 16 at 11:25am ET (8:25am PT) presumably within hours of sister Kim Richard’s arrest. Did Kyle know at the time she was typing what was happening to Kim? Probably not. If so, the blog would have been very different or non existent.
Kyle began her blog with this,
“I don’t want to write this blog. I didn’t even want to watch this reunion, to be honest. There. I said it. But here I go….Let’s just dive right into the text message from Lisa Rinna to Kim.”
Kyle said that she was shocked to learn about the texts, but doesn’t think Lisa Rinna “is a dangerous person. She just made a really bad choice.”
Could one of those bad choices be agreeing to be on RHOBH? I’m sure Bravo doesn’t pay what Depends did. In regards to Brandi’s accusations about the space cake and talk of being a hypocrite, Kyle had this to say.
“This was her big chance to say something about me, calling me a hypocrite for not partaking in the space cake. I have said it before, and I will say it again: I NEVER said I haven’t smoked pot. I HAVE. It’s just not my thing.” Kyle continued, “Brandi herself wasn’t partaking, because of her own reasons (which had to do with her divorce, as she explained), so wouldn’t that make her a hypocrite then? WHY did she care if I did or did not choose to? Because she wanted to jump at the chance to make me look bad, since her behavior and her drinking had been front and center.”
For matters regarding the dog bite, there seemed to be much ado about a picture taken from the hospital room. Kyle wonders where Kim’s “responsibility” is in all of this.
“In hindsight, I wish I hadn’t posted that picture, but I certainly didn’t mean to hurt Kim. She posted a picture when she was in the hospital this year. Yolanda and Camille have done so regularly. And where is her responsibility in all of this? However, I do feel bad about what it has led to. And I’ve told her that. I also felt terrible because I know she loves Kingsley, but I also love my child.”
Kyle also addressed the veiled threat that Kim made to reveal something about daughter, Alexia. This moment in the reunion show nearly took Kyle’s breath away.
“For Kim to throw out that she would say something about Alexia (like she did to Lisa R. regarding Harry) nearly took my breath away. But her dog is off limits? So there you have it. I don’t even know what to say or do anymore. Clearly, we will never agree on this matter. And now we have more issues to work through, like my hurt and anger over Kim threatening to say something about my child. I know she loves Alexia, and it was just her being angry and “in the moment,” but it’s going to take me some time to get past that.”
And now with Kim’s arrest they will have even more issues to work. In closing, Kyle wanted to clear up two points. A) She never asked that Kingsley be put down. And B) Nothing “unspeakable” or “unforgivable” occurred at Brooke’s wedding. Brandi wasn’t even there.
