When I was scrolling through Instagram and saw that Camille Grammer was on vacation in Hawaii, I could not help flashing back to her iconic Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 1 feud with Kyle Richards. The origin of their discord happened off camera when they were discussing Camille’s spring break plans that didn’t include her then-husband Kelsey Grammer. Looking back, that explanation sounds so lame, but the argument that ensued was nothing short of legendary.
More than anything, I wish that initial conversation was filmed, but the fact that it wasn’t added some mystery and intrigue to the Camille vs. Kyle fight. Plus we got that amazing Kyle F bomb when she declared, “You’re such a f***ing liar Camille.” Nevertheless, there’s no way that I could ever see anything about Camille and Hawaii and not picture her complaining that Kyle questioned her for going to Hawaii without Kelsey.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills viewers barely got to know Eden Sassoon. Other than mentions of her long hugs, dating app connections, and her famous dad, we got nothing from her other than some drama with Kyle Richards and Kim Richards, which was way out of her league.
She had no chance arguing with the OG cast members. Unfortunately for Eden, she was on her Richards crusade thanks to false information from Lisa Rinna. Unfortunately for the viewers, Eden didn’t amuse us with anything other than that black wig she wore during the Hong Kong trip.
Like WHO does that? Can you even imagine the behind-the-scenes of this blue bunny? Of how Kim has kept it stashed away somewhere for months and months, just plotting how she can use it to best Lipsa. Probably talking about it ad nauseum to Kyle Richards, and her poor daughter Brooke, constantly pretending to listen to the travail of Rambles and Lipsa and Bad Vibes Bunny. Kim moving in to her new condo and bringing the bunny with her, making a big deal to hide it from Kingsley, (I mean and Hucksley); planning and plotting to de-gift it and then WHOOSH – making it reappear at the reunion.
Kyle Richards is living the good life. She is an original cast member on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, where she’s pretty much always portrayed in a positive light; she is happily married; and she is super wealthy – unlike some of the Housewives who front about their finances in an effort to stay on Bravo.
So, I don’t blame Kyle for spending that money and going on fun trips with her family. They recently ventured to Europe to spend time in London, Paris, and Milan. As relatable as Kyle seems on the show, her vacation photos remind me she is super rich and not “just like us” even though I feel that way when I watch her commentary on TV.
Last night’s Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills reunion was wash, rinse, and repeat pantygate. And even though the stains have come out, Erika Girardi and Dorit Kemsley still can’t toss them in the drawer and move on. Can’t one of Dorit’s three full-time housekeepers clean up this mess? What about “Soapy and Sudsy“?
Andy Cohen wastes no time defrosting the world of Erika Jayne, wondering why she has to be so cold? But Andy and I are on different time frames, so my first order of business is discussing wardrobe. Which means Kyle Richards.
UGH. How does Kyle By KantDressTooThousand expect us to take her boutique seriously when she is wearing a cold-shoulder leotard that she put a strapless bra over. With a skirt that looks like shape wear. SERIOUSLY!? I just cannot. even. fathom. why?! Kyle is aware that when organizing a ‘sitting down for TV outfit’ one should, you know, TEST how it looks while seated? Apparently, these are things only non-showbiz people know – the former F-list child stars did not get such stellar education.
If I could be anyone on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, it would be Kyle Richards. She is an OG cast member. She is on good terms with everyone and is bringing in the cash with all of her side ventures. She definitely has the best thing going for her out of everyone in this cast.
Aside from defending her sister Kim Richards (again), Kyle had (another) easy season and I can’t hate on her for that. Fortunately for her, she doesn’t have too many loose ends to tie up. Luckily for us, she did share some of her opinions and insights about the show in an interview with Heather McDonald.

Josh Altman shared the pic above on Instagram, adding, “The greatest day of my life. April 3rd at 4:55pm Heather and I welcomed our amazing baby girl Alexis Kerry Altman into the world. Weighing 7lbs and 20 inches long, this angel is absolutely perfect. To experience the birth of your child is such a mind blowing event that is greater than anything I can describe. I’m so happy and so proud of my wife for handling this like a champ. Life has definitely changed in an instant, and gazing into my baby girl’s eyes, I can tell you it got much better.”
After a tough season last year, Lisa Vanderpump definitely turned things around this time. Well, either that, or Lisa Rinna just screwed up enough to take away from what everyone else was doing. But let’s be real, that party Vanderpump threw for the finale was immaculate and she definitely reclaimed her throne by the end of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 7.
Still, Lisa Vanderpump couldn’t resist shading LisaRinna and supporting her loyal soldier Dorit Kemsley before the season officially comes to a halt.
