Kyle Richards Admits Lisa Rinna’s Comments About Kim Have Strained Their Friendship

Kim Richards has been the main topic for Lisa Rinna and Eden Sassoon this season on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, causing a lot of headaches for Kyle Richards. But Kim isn’t exactly enjoying the spotlight either.

“Kim has been really upset about the things that have been said about her with Lisa Rinna and with Eden,” Kyle told The Daily Dish. “It’s hard hearing those things. She’s already defensive because she always feels like she’s always under the microscope because of things that she’s gone through in the past and things that have happened. So when she hasn’t done anything and she’s feeling so great and to have these things said, it’s upsetting.”

As we know, this isn’t the first time Rinna has commented on Kim’s personal issues. “I’ve known Lisa Rinna before the Housewives, and I like Lisa Rinna a lot. I think she’s a good person. She has had issues with my sister, as we all know. And then she feels bad because we are friends, and she’ll say, ‘I’m really sorry. I never should have said that. It won’t happen again,'” Kyle shared. “And then it happens again probably because we’re on this show together and you’re supposed to be honest about your feelings or whatever her reason may be.”

Kyle admitted this has tested her friendship with Rinna. “It does make it very difficult for me as her friend and Kim being my sister, it puts me in a really bad position,” she said. “I don’t really understand why she said those things, but it makes it hard to get past, obviously.”

“They obviously don’t like one another, and every time they go to talk, it just gets worse, so I’ve gotten to the point where I’m going to say, ‘I’m going to stay out of it,’ because every time someone chimes in, it just blows up and gets worse,” Kyle explained, adding that she’s “probably a little bit traumatized” from Kim and Lisa’s past blow-up in Amsterdam. “I don’t want to get in the middle of it because I know it can be volatile. So I just say, ‘OK, I’m gonna let them handle this.’ I mean, they are adult women. They should be able to.”

    1. Oh my gosh, I was just thinking that! I would be ticked if my sister was friends with someone who continually bashed me publicly. Kim is a nut, but she is still Kyle’s sister.

  1. LR, ED, Dorit and Eden add absolutely nothing I am interested in to this show. Other than the trips so far I see this as same old same old and very boring.

    1. LR absolutely stood there and lied to Kyle. The check of it!!! When Kyle asked LR what motivated Eden to interfere she replied “I don’t know what she knows about the situation” she is the one who told Eden she was this close to dying!! The irony is she accused LV of being a manipulator last season but surely this is prove she has being manipulative herself. As she is fond of saying “I’ll do anything for money!” so has to make up a storyline to keep herself in the limelight. Also what does she mean by don’t hustle the hustler. She couldn’t hustle anyone even if her pants were on fire. She needs to get a life and concentrate on putting her life in order before interfering with someone else’s life.

      1. I’ve always believed LR is a liar. She proves it over & over. Kim was right about LR & ED double teaming people. That is their MO.

  2. I certainly would not stand around quietly or be a friend with someone who is constantly bashing a sibling of mine. That person would become a non entity to me–after I told that person how I felt. Rinna is two-faced & has been proving that for awhile now. She has also been known to say, more than once to “Just own your truth, just say it!” Yet she never does. What a lying hypocrite.
