Over the years, we have come to know the Real Housewives for many things. Living in big houses. Designer clothing. Handbags that cost more than your car. Businesses that seem to appear and disappear overnight. And the occasional arrest.
The one thing that the Real Housewives might be best known for, however, is their love of a good feud. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’Kyle Richardsand Lisa Vanderpump have had their skirmishes throughout the years. But they have never had an epic Housewives fight. And certainly, have never stopped speaking. Until now.
Lisa and Kyle have been friends for many years, but are no strangers to feuding on the show. Over the years, the two have had multiple rifts followed by subsequent makeups. Ever since Lisa declined to participate in the cast photoshoot without the ladies, we knew something was up. It’s Season 4 all over again! Lisa is once again a lone wolf against the pack.
This week we celebrate Kyle Richards‘ birthday, a momentous Bravo occasion if ever there was one, because it is Kyle who brought us kaftans. I cried tears of warm rosé to learn that Kaftans By KyleKantoo closed last year, because how else am I going to satisfy my dream of being shrouded in polyester satin leopard print, weighed down by giant rhinestones and chopped off at the mid-thigh? I guess I’ll have to travel all the way to Beverly Hills to raid Kyle’s closet!
Most of Kyle’s notable moments are connected to Kim Richards. The Twisted Sisters Richards have formed the cornerstone of this show’s consistent focus of very real family dysfunction from practically the very first episode.
2017 has been a banner year for the cursed reality TV marriage. It seemed like every time we blinked another reality star filed for divorce!
Some were predictable (ahem Luann de Lesseps and Shannon Beador), while others came as a complete surprise (like Little Women: LA‘s Briana Renee FINALLY kicking sleazy Matt Ericson to the curb or Dr. Jackie Walter‘s husband being caught cheating). And in the middle there were a whole host of other unlucky in love really stars. Including a who a few who actually tied the knot ON TV – only to split in front of the cameras as well.
Below is our rundown of 2017’s reality star divorces. Here’s hoping for many less in 2018!
Every time that Real Housewives of Beverly Hillsalum Carlton Gebbia pops up in the news, it’s never for a good reason. Most people forgot about Carlton’s time as a cast member. She was only on the show for one season and she never even popped up for a cameo appearance after that. Nevertheless, these outrageous news stories always pop up as reminder of her existence.
This time the news is very dark and troubling. A former housekeeper of Carlton’s has thrown some pretty heavy accusations her way and a lawsuit.
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.
