Kyle Richards Has Distanced Herself from ‘RHOBH’ Cast … Too Preoccupied with Morgan Wade!
Kyle Richards has distanced herself from some of her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills co-stars, as Season 13 continues to feature the breakdown of her marriage to husband, Mauricio Umansky.
The reality star offered an explanation during a recent Amazon Live chat session, a few days before she reunited with her co-stars to film the Season 13 reunion.
A fan asked — “Who do you think you’re going to butt heads with the most at the reunion?”
“[For sure,] I have the most to address with Sutton [Stracke],” Kyle revealed. “I think I just need answers, really, more than anything. I don’t know why she came to me like I had done something wrong to her when I was just struggling and could’ve used a friend.”
Kyle teased that her relationship with Sutton was not the only one on thin ice, when another fan asked if she was not on speaking terms with any other cast members.
“Well, yeah,” she responded. “I mean, I’m not saying I wouldn’t talk to them, I just haven’t. You know, when you’re going through a hard time, you just want to surround yourself with people that make you feel good. And some people weren’t making me feel good, so that’s why.”
Kyle, 55, shared that she hoped to get back on track with some of the ladies as she approached the reunion. She added that some unexpected twists and turns will likely play out as the group rewinds a tense season.
She noted that she hoped “to put any hard feelings behind us and move forward” after the reunion taping.
She told viewers during the livestream — “I never like leaving a reunion still not feeling good. Or even worse, in a worse place than when we arrived there.”
Kyle’s remarks come after she was photographed alongside rumored love interest, Morgan Wade, checking out rings inside a Beverly Hills, CA Tiffany & Co. jewelry store, on her birthday.
Earlier this month, Kyle was spotted leaning over a display case as Morgan perused the store.
Kyle, who confirmed her separation from her estranged husband in July 2023, has been in a rumored romance with the country singer for months. Kyle and Mauricio share three daughters together.
Kyle and Morgan had recently returned from a tropical getaway in Punta Mita, Mexico. The reality star and the singer were seen celebrating Kyle’s birthday alongside other friends during the sun-soaked escape. Mauricio, 53, was nowhere to be seen.
The real estate mogul did give his wife a shoutout on her special day, via Instagram.
Mauricio wrote — “Wishing you a very Happy Birthday @kylerichards18,” alongside a video of the Bravo star dancing.
In a previous Amazon livestream, Kyle admitted that she regretted dragging Morgan into the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills spotlight.
“She’s an artist, you know? She just wants to make music and all of a sudden she was thrust into this like, world of gossip and tabloids and traveling and having paparazzi take pictures of her,” Kyle said, earlier this month.
The Bravo star added that Morgan, 29, did not like “attention” or being “talked about.”
“She just wants to make music and all of a sudden I had a lot of guilt, you know, that I put her in this position,” she said.
