With the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion filming this week, questions are circulating about whether the entire event might revolve around Lisa Rinna’s ongoing and exhausting drama with Kim Richards. The answer, in short, seems to be yes.
Kyle Richards vows to confront Rinna at the RHOBH reunion, claiming that this season changed her perspective on things – especially when it comes to the relationship with her supposed long time “friend” Rinna. “Personally, I think all that drama really changed everything for me and put me in an awful position. Kim is my sister, but Lisa Rinna is also supposed to be my friend. I mean how many times can she say she’s ‘sorry’ before it doesn’t mean anything?” reflects Kyle.

Kyle thinks her sister is “an easy target” for others’ comments and accusations, given her rocky history with addiction (and some might add, sanity). She tells FemaleFirst in an interview, “With Kim, she’s someone who comes on the show and always says something funny. My kids even say she’s their favourite. However, she’s an easy target and therefore I think that’s why a lot of drama circles her, but she’s not someone to take it lying down which makes things a bit more interesting!”
Well – some might call it “interesting.” Others might label Kim’s story as sad, redundant, and downright pitiful. In any case, Kyle says she has to keep it moving, whether her cast mates agree or not. Lisa Vanderpump, in particular, cannot seem to wrap her mind around why Kyle forgave Rinna so quickly. Kyle defends, “Lisa Vanderpump says to me, ‘How can you be so forgiving?’, and I’m like, ‘That’s easy for you to say because you do not like each other!’ I know [Rinna’s] a good person but it really changed a lot for me.”
The cast trip to Hong Kong marks the first time the ladies will be
trapped together since Kim and Rinna’s truce. Of cast trips in general, Kyle says, “We’ve had seven years of going to interesting places and it’s really fun to share it with the other women. It’s kind of like watching your own home videos.”
“The trip to Hong Kong (coming up this season) was amazing; on the flight out everyone was laughing and having fun. It was such a different place and the culture was amazing. Seeing the Buddha and having to go on the Gondola was amazing, even though it was terrifying,” adds Kyle.
Kyle also comments on the addition of Dorit Kemsley to this season’s cast – she thinks she’s great and “completely honest about who she is.” She adds that Dorit “has great style and her family are a great addition to the show. I think the audience will grow to love her a lot more as the show goes on.”
Interestingly, Kyle has no words for Eden Sassoon, who has infiltrated the show – and the Richards sisters’ relationship – with all the subtlety of a patchouli stink bomb. Kyle does long for the days of RHOBH’s original cast, though, saying she would love to see her old pals back on the show one day. “I love Adrienne (Maloof) and Taylor (Armstrong). I have a special place in my heart with all the original cast members. It would be great to have them all back because that’s who we started the original show with,” shares Kyle.
