RHOBH star Kyle Richards is opening up about her friendship with her co-star Erika Girardi and how they have connected on a deeper level.
“From the moment Erika joined the show, I immediately liked her. We both had in common that we had our kids really young, and we just sort of started bonding over being young moms. I just liked her,” Kyle tells The Daily Dish. “Now that she’s been on the show, it’s her second season, we’ve gotten closer and closer and I’m really enjoying my time with her.”
Kyle explains that their trip to Greece really helped them bond. “We had so much fun, we really did,” Kyle said. “Each trip and each time with any of the Housewives when we travel, people get closer and you learn a lot about people, and I think you could see that we enjoy each other’s company.”
“Erika lets down her guard more with me, I think, just because we hit it off right away. I think coming into the Housewives, a lot of women have a lot of distrust. I don’t know why,” Kyle said with a laugh. “Lisa Vanderpump and I have been there for seven years, and I see the newbies come in. I feel bad for them. I think, ‘God, it must be kind of weird to step into this arena and some people have never even been in front of a camera before,’ so it can be scary. So it takes a little while to get close to people, but I think Erika and I just kind of clicked right away.”
Kyle also teased Erika’s emotional moment in an upcoming episode that has viewers curious. “Each season you get to know each Housewife more and more, I think, and with Erika, she let her guard down a little bit more towards the end of the season,” Kyle said. “So I think the audience will see another side of her, and she’s gonna open up.”
“I was so taken aback. I even said to her the next day, it’s like another voice came out of her. All of a sudden, she got so emotional and so upset,” Kyle explained. “But you have to tune in and see why.”
