Kyle Richards Defends Sister Kim Over Bunny, Talks Lisa Rinna

Kyle Richards went through a lot of drama this season on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and now she is breaking it down in a new interview on The Tomorrow Show with Keven Undergaro.

Kyle actually confessed something fans may not know after the dramatic season one finale with her sister Kim. “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,” she shared. “It was too much. And I’m a very emotional person. So it was really, really hard.”

Kyle went on to say that the drama can be “really, really challenging, way more so than, you know, acting or remembering lines for me – one hundred percent. It’s very emotional and you carry it with you and it’s very anxiety provoking. ”

Kyle also explained where her sister Kim was coming from at the reunion when she tried to give Lisa Rinna back the bunny she had bought for her grandson. Kim “did not feel it was sincere from Lisa Rinna. It was on camera, she felt like it was like trying to look like she was, you know, trying to make amends,” says Kyle, “but it wasn’t authentic is what Kim felt, so she didn’t want to give her grandson this bunny that she felt like had a bad… juju… so she brought it back at the reunion.”

Kyle insists she had no idea Kim brought the bunny, which is why she shut down. “I plug my ears when she pulled out the bunny – it’s so funny, I go like this and I plugged my ears, but it was first ‘Oh my God like Kim has balls.’ She does. And I knew that she meant what she was saying and I was like ‘Oh my gosh.’”

As for Rinna being upset at Kyle’s jokes about her lips? “I’m like you joke about your lips all day long, you know you have all these emojis with the big lips and the zipper with the lip, I’m like, I mean…sorry!”
