Kyle Richards is taking to her Bravo Blog to reveal why her conversation with Brandi about Lisa went the way it did. Kyle says she believes Brandi could relate to her about the problems she has had with Lisa. Kyle also says that she was surprised to see Carlton’s tears about her anti-Semitic comment, because all Carlton has every showed Kyle was hate.
Kyle writes, “Brandi and I have never been close. This year I started to get to know her better and understand her more. After Lisa and I had our falling out they became close. When Lisa and I planned the party for Ken and Mauricio we were in a better place than last year and had just started talking more frequently. I was still upset about Lisa bringing up the tabloids for everyone to hear — and in front of Portia. I felt she was pretending to be supportive while still trying to cast doubt in people’s minds (like in her conversation with Ken when he defended Mauricio and she clearly didn’t).
After the Reunion last year I didn’t think we would ever be able to be friends again. It’s one thing to go after me but to go after my husband and his business was totally uncalled for. When we first started this season, it was a rough start. The “Dream Team” made it difficult for anyone to move forward. There was such a clear divide in the group. When Lisa and I planned the party for Ken and Mauricio we were just starting to mend and I was willing to move forward — cautiously. When Carlton and I had the argument at the party I was grateful that Lisa (and Brandi) saw things for what they were and that Lisa told Carlton that night and later at Carlton’s party.
I have to say, I had a hard time buying Carlton’s tears and talking about how she can’t understand “hate” when that’s is all she has shown me. It felt very hypocritical, and I felt she seemed more concerned with the anti-Semitic comment hurting business than anything else. I said it before and I will say it again, I regret not choosing my words better while in the heat of the moment. I don’t think she has any regrets for the way she has treated me.
When Brandi and I met up for our hike I had known she was having issues with Lisa, but didn’t know exactly what was going on. I think Brandi came to me because she thought I could relate. Although our issues have been different, they were with the same person. If Lisa and I were in a different place, perhaps that conversation would have gone differently. But we were still on the mend, and I could understand Brandi’s frustration. We are expected to be honest about our feelings and that’s what I was. I care about Lisa, but have been hurt by her as well. I still wanted to move forward and put the past behind us because we had once had a great friendship.”
