I'm going to go ahead and make the understatement of the year…Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' newbie Carlton Gebbia does not like Kyle Richards. In fact, her recap of Monday night's episode may be almost as entertaining as the show itself!
Beginning her Bravo blog, Carlton writes, "I met Brandi [Glanville], Kim [Richards], Joyce [Giraud] and Kyle with smiles honestly hoping that we (Kyle, Joyce, and I) had just got off to an unfortunate start. I was happy to see Brandi, as she was another I immediately clicked with. She's completely uncensored, and I appreciated her humor when we first met at the BHCC. But what's impressive is how after divorce she has been able to take care of herself financially."
Quickly, her tirade against Kyle begins, and it's oh-so-hilarious! Carlton shares, "Anyway we barely had walked into the barroom when immediately Kyle asks if I was raised Catholic? Oh bloody hell here we go! Maybe it's me, but when I'm welcomed into the home of someone I'm relatively new to meeting, religion is not usually the first question I lead with..it was a probable indication as to how the rest of the day would go with this one…Oh joy."

Carlon blogs, "Lisa [Vanderpump] arrives looking glamorous in pink with beautiful roses, which made me smile. As we enter the barroom Kyle, Kim, and Joyce scurry off to check out my ,killer dolls' (I'm still smiling). My husband started buying porcelain dolls for me when we first started going out and each one serves as a beautiful memory. No shock here but Kyle, Kim, and Joyce got creeped out by my gorgeous collection of dolls…that did make me laugh. Hey girls two words for you 'Puppet Master!'" I'm not going to lie, Carlton scares me a bit…but I kind of like it!
Does it get any better? Why yes it does. Carlton continues, "And then Kyle out of the blue, actually probably on cue for her, asks 'Have you ever explored with witchcraft?' Oh for f— sakes! I honestly have no problem answering any questions about my faith as long as I feel comfortable that you are coming from a genuine place of interest. But when it's obvious you're intending to ask for shock value only, amongst a group of girls that I'm just getting to know, and that you actually dont give a toss…Um bite me," adding, "I'm really not surprised with Kyle's primitive and disparaging remarks about witchcraft, brooms, and spells etc. What's surprising is that she wasn't sucked into one of the witch balls. But alas they are probably not big enough for that kind of dense energy (still smiling). Seriously what's disheartening is considering how far we have evolved as a society with respect to religion, sexual preference, and ethnicity with all this progress made — when did it suddenly become OK to have such an overt prejudice against someone's non-traditional religion? If she made those type of offensive remarks about any other traditional religion she would be in hot bloody water! And I'm not talking a cauldron!"
Carlton reveals, "Shockingly, there were one or two moments where Kyle and I did laugh for a second, which was a shred of encouragement — until we commenced on a house tour. We enter my bedroom and just when I think there may be a glimmer of hope for us she speaks 'Do you feel guilty having sex with a cross above your bed?' And, 'this house makes me want to get the Ouija board out.' And poof…there goes the hope."
She concludes, "Suddenly it gets heavy at the table when Brandi asks Kyle about the tabloid rumors of her husbands cheating. But Kyle isn't comfortable being put on the spot in front of everyone regarding such a personal subject…Interesting I muse, double standard me thinks. Lisa subsequently gives Kyle great advice about letting it go when it comes to negative publicity or rumors. I personally think if there's negativity out there about you, of course it's hard not to be hurt and affected. But don't give it any energy. Just focus on what's truly important, your loving and supportive family. There will always be people out there wishing you ill. Just don't feed it. Believe it or not I have made allowances for Kyle's negative behavior towards me, as I know she's obviously going through a hard time with the alleged cheating rumors, and I'm sure its taken a toll on her in many ways."
I cannot wait to see what is in store for these two as the season continues. I hope Kyle doesn't get a spell cast on her! (or maybe I do…)
