After seven seasons of watching Kyle Richards on Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills you would think we would know it all but au contraire. The saner half of the Richards sisters opens up about the the cost of reality TV and claims the show has caused her to need psych meds (do not tell Dorit Kemsley) and therapy. Yet Kyle still can’t wrench herself away…
Kyle was driven to the brink and forced to turn to smoothies to soothe her mind. Kidding! Actually, she confesses, “I did go to therapy after season one and the therapist put me on Lexapro because I was having panic attacks after the limo thing with my sister.”
Even though Season 6 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was the worst season yet, this one wasn’t much better. I did end up watching every episode – multiple times – and was just as into it as I always am, there are plenty of things I could do without. This season had its highlights, but there are definitely a lot of annoying aspects that I never want to hear about or see ever again.
After what I (and many other fans) deemed to be a shitty sixth season, I feel like this year was a transitional year. They better bring it next year – or else! Who am I kidding?! I am going to watch this show no matter how good it is, but there are a lot of things that I won’t miss from Season 7.
It always pains me to see Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills go. Like a visit from a pesky sibling who annoys you the whole time they’re there, but the second they leave it’s like awwwww… but you guys have big diamonds, mini ponies, glam squads, and travel to fancy destinations, and I miss you already. I should note that no siblings of mine have any of the aforementioned things but my sister-in-law does work for Disney World.
Alas, my love-hate relationship with the ladies of Beverly Hills goes deep and none so illustrates this point better than Lisa Rinna. That woman! One part high-octane insanity, one part sensible bluff caller, one part, well, a concoction not currently identifiable. But as Lisa Vanderpump agreed, there’s something lovable about Lipsa!
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.
