Kyle Richards Talks Relationship With Brandi Glanville


It isn’t a secret to fans of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills that Kyle Richards and Brandi Glanville were not meant to be friends. From fighting to friends for a short period of time to REALLY not speaking, we have seen it all. Recently, Entertainment Tonight caught up with Kyle at the KIIS FM iHeart Radio Jingle Ball where she briefly discussed her relationship with Brandi as well as her sister Kim’s partial return on the show.

ET asked if the two were on good terms and Richards responded, “We are not friends at all. We really didn’t have a foundation to begin with. It’s not like a friend you had a falling out with and you missed them, so there’s no love those there.”

While Kyle may not be a fan of Glanville, sister Kim was spotted filming at Beverly Hills park to film for the show. The site reports that a source close to Kim told them that producers called them to film a few scenes.

Kyle got candid about her sister returning part-time for the show. “It was really weird starting out without her, because we started this together. It didn’t feel good in the beginning, but the timing wasn’t right. She was taking care of herself right when we were starting… but when she did make appearances, when everything was kind of worked out, it was good to have her back for sure.”

Kim was arrested twice this summer, once for public intoxication and another for stealing at a local target. The former child star was suffering from alcohol abuse.

Oh boy! Here come the ‘storyline’ comments again. If I was Kyle I just wouldn’t say anything about anyone ever! It’s always going to be she used he/she or it as a ‘storyline’. I am also really pleased that so many feel the same way I do about the fake ‘storylines’!!! Let’s just have glamour this is BH! I am sitting in the middle of winter in strong winds, houses in the next town flooded because once again the river has burst its banks! Ten years we have been here and this is the third time this has happened! All… Read more »

ITA Sally!! I’m in Chicago until January, sitting up in the 61st floor of the condo with hubby, our cats, no sun, sirens all day long (NW hospital is one block away), thugs running all over the place, it’s cold, foggy and damp. Bring on the good stuff and not all this manufactured drama.

Oh dear! Gigicat, At least you have your cats with you that’s something! Just glamour please for us both!!!!

GIGICAT, now I know why you have the handle! I have 2 black kitties, they add so much to life. I just got them in July as babies. Siblings.
My Dad was born in Chicago and I went there when I was 25 to visit. it was something on top of the Sears Tower. Hopefully when the fog lifts you have a nice view all the way up there.

Hi cat lover! We have 3 black ones, 2 Siamese, 2 orange tabbies, one gray mixed and one white deaf one. So yes, 9 cats and a giant condo and I love them all. It’s a lot of cleaning. We live next to water tower and Hancock. I grew up here but WOW had it changed!!

You really are ‘cat woman’ nine cats! Wow! We had two, a colourpoint Persian, Victoria and Prudence a black like 3D’s but she had white socks! Then we had a Cocker Spaniel who had seven pups, that was a nightmare, We kept one so had Sophie and Issy. We lost them within a year of each other. I said no more, ever, a year later and two cream sophas in our new house we ended up with Meg another Black Cocker Spaniel! Animals might make a mess but they bring so much to your life. Xoxo

Thank God for Tidy Cat with the red cap! Maybe and Merry, Maybe the baby, and his sister Merry being contrary. Maybe lets me actually hold him on my shoulder like baby! I so wanted a cuddly kitty, and Merry is my husband’s kitty, she runs to the bedroom door when she hears him get up. He is a day sleeper from working swing at the casino for 40 years. Anyway, they are so, so sweet. I see a little kitty and want it, but I just can’t. I see why people who can, do.

I love animals more than most people. And I love how us women all have pets. Pet people are the best!! Check out we are involved in this.

Thank goodness I don’t lve in Chicago! I love that little dog on the front! Really well done for being involved! Xo


I posted about the whole storyline thing yesterday. No I don’t want producer driven drivel either!! Just what’s going on in their life, some people are just more interesting than others. I like some humor, snark, shade, perfect combo bring it on!

Totally naynay, perfect bring it on!!!!!

Don’t forget fabulous clothes, foods, and trips. That my fix: the clothes, food, and trips!

For sure Bon Vivant! 🙂

Definitely, love the clothes, especially Yolanda’s! I look forward to the trips all year especially as it’s Dubai this year, memory lane for me! Food I don’t like looking at it just makes me hungry!

Oh oh, someone else who likes to see the food!

For Bon V.

That’s correct Kyle you didn’t have a foundation for a friendship, she came on he show and you made nasty comments and were involved in hiding her crutches. You were vile from the start, so she’d have no reason to be friends with you, not to mention Kyle got physical with Brandi last year. If you’ve ever seen an interview with Brandi where she is asked about Joyce or Scheana, she responds with “who?” and shuts the question down. Maybe Kyle should start doing that – though we all know she wont since she’s got to her her name in… Read more »

How true. ITA sidewinderVX. You said it.

I agree about the storyline issue as well. I doubt these housewives have a choice in what they talk about if they sign on for the show. Bravo may not create the storyline but they sure can ask the questions to keep a storyline going….and going….and

😀 😀 😀

I’m sure these women have who they don’t film with, or how much time allowed, etc in their contracts.

I have a question – and totally NOT being snarky – you could ask my co-workers, I am sure I drive them crazy with questions…so much is being said about story line(s) etc., what does Kyle bring to the show without her arguments with Kim or Brandi? Her child going off to college, so did the rest of the worlds, (for the record I disagree with any child under 18 being a part of these shows). The one season she stood up to Lisa about the alleged cheating husband, but very quickly backed off. We’ve seen her husband’s business take… Read more »
The thing is, these girls are filmed about 40 hours a week each, not including group events. It’s not up to them which aspects of their life are shown unless they make sure it’s not during the hours they film. There are about 8 producers from a production company responsible for pushing the content creation and then a couple of story editors to piece everything together in a coherent fashion with the finished product then being delivered to the network for final approval and then airing. A lot of times audiences complain about people not having a storyline, but I… Read more »
No, it’s not up to them – but – they are all actress’ and they know what will get air time and what won’t. I am tired of the commercials within the shows, RHWONY was way over the top. I enjoy watching their trips, their homes – I’m not impressed – the interaction between the ladies when they are having fun and yes I admit the arguments/drama – but – not the over the top screaming and yelling, pointing fingers, in your face arguments, but again they know what will be aired. I admit – although – I would never… Read more »
I understand what you are saying and I agree there are only so many more ways to go after multiples seasons of a reality show. Two thoughts come to mind. Some seasons either need to die off or combine just to make them new again. Secondly, breaking down the third wall seems to work pretty well as something new. MTV has done it and it makes things more interesting again. It’s like a documentary about the reality show being filmed. I loved the behind the scenes special of RHBH’s first season. Not only because it was back to basics of… Read more »

Yeah the way they did Tenn Mom OG was brilliant, letting us actually see the producers interacting with the cast is really interesting, and was a really good change up to the normal reality show format.

Exactly sidewinder, it was especially cute showing the kids interacting with the cameras but it amped up the drama a bit and made it more real. I’d love to see Bravo do more specials about their most dramatic episodes but breaking down that third wall with behind the seen footage and producers’ perspective:)

I thought the behind the scene was wonderful! So many of the viewers believe these ladies are so classy they float on clouds, when the behind the scene show how awkward it really is to get in and out of a limo, their dresses do ride up their @$$. I guarantee the RHW do not wake up with full make-up. So I guess seeing the more realness of it all would be interesting too…

Totally agree show it all but just not made up, producer driven drivel! Let’s face it we all look pretty rough first thing in the morning, so let’s see them as well!

Not me…I look like…Jennifer Aniston…hehehehehe!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I agree Sally…if it’s supposed to be Real…let’s see it Real!

On a good day I look like Jennifer Aniston grand mother!

Should I call you Grammy? Too cute, Sally!

Kt, Grand Mamma if you please!!!!! Young whipper snapper!

On a good day I look like Kelsey grammer

Yes ma’am Grand Mamma! And not too young, but very young at heart!
Naynay…too funny!?
You both made me laugh!!

naynay I’m in trouble, I have just woken my husband up laughing!!!

Very true…who doesn’t love when they show bloopers at the end of a movie, this might be kind of similar.:) I would like to see this kind of special about the Gorgas famous christening and maybe even the naked wasted Grethen/Tamera party. The producers probably have good stories about those nights. 🙂

Bon V, I am so glad you said that way better than I ever did. They are HOUSEWIVES. Seriously, I have always liked Kyle and thought she was interesting just on her own. Just like when you meet someone, and just the sound of their voice is peaceful or touches you, (or me, the universal “you”), and on the other hand, meeting someone else and their voice is grating to me. I watched all the scenes where they were at the events. I mean, I just didn’t enjoy things like going in a race car. Who can do that kind… Read more »
I agree, she has never had a storyline. The only positive going into this season was that Kim wasn’t coming back, and Kyle might have had to actually get herself a story. I disagree with anyone saying following these women would be interesting, this show would loose almost all it’s viewers without storylines, that has never been what this show is about. Kyle vs Camille set the tone for the drama from season 1, and getting into fights with other people has been Kyles storyline from the beginning, she’s done the same thing every year. Unfortunately, even without Kim on… Read more »

Yes, all true.

Ditto feelthe same way she is a BORE

Agree, swVX.

Funny how she was friendly w Brandi so she could slam Lisa V two seasons ago! She has no story line except showing what spoiled child she’s raising!!

Kyle is a Bore and needs to stop talking about Brandi- leave her alone and worry about Mauriciho- You best watch that man

I love Kyle, she is the most interesting person on BH, her and Lisa. Eileen is funny too. From the day she apologized to Brandy I never heard her say anything cruel about her. It was always Brandy doing something to ruin an event. Geez, talk about doing anything for air time there isn’t an event or party that she didn’t cause a scene or just be her usual vulgar self. Her mistake was thinking in order to remain herself she thought she had to remain boorish and rude. I never saw her say or do one kind thing in… Read more »

Here’s the deal Kim’s children aren’t on Kyle’s side. This is the woman who has been uninvited to many of both of her sisters things or their children’s events. I have a feeling Kyle isn’t the oh so innocent sister she tries to portray on this show. I think back to the limo fight when Kim hid behind Adrian because she was scared Kyle was going to physically hurt her. This makes me wonder if this happens kind of violence happens where Kyle is concerned

Hmmm. Interesting. We may never know the truth. Clearly neither sister is an angel, and I never thought Kyle was sweet and innocent. We do not see everything either, only what is filmed. That limo scene got pretty nasty.

I’m calling Bull on the “who needs a story line”. I remember a few weeks ago when RHNY and how everyone talked about how boring it was because there was nothing happening. Sorry I don’t want to watch cloths, food and homes. That would be incredibly boring after a couple of shows. I don’t want RHOA kind of stupidity with the physical altercation. The thing about Kyle is her life is no more interesting than mine. LVP does a ton of stuff which makes her interesting, the Dodgers pitcher came to her house all the cool pride work she does.… Read more »
Hi! Cassy, We all like different things, I love watching their Real lives not the producer driven drivel that keeps coming out these days. I love watching them at home at work, it is supposed to be Reality TV after all. There real lives aren’t what has been shown lately! All I remember about the early days of the last season of NY was Bethenny crying all the time but I don’t think the show was boring. I like seeing Kyle at work or at home, I’m not sure just yet how much I like her but I would sooner… Read more »
Well as you read all the blogs and know all the posters and read all their comments you must be right. This is just one more time when you disagree with someone without knowing any facts. But you are correct on all of the blogs and real housewives sites there have been a total of 3 British people who post or watch the show. Wow do you three get together as it is a tiny community of viewers. You can respectfully disagree all you want, but your comments are once again not reading what she has written instead reading whatever… Read more »

Since this is an article about BG and Kyle, I started wondering what Brandy ever DID. Did. She hosted like 3 events in her 5 years. She ruined almost every single dinner and event she went to. Yes, she brought fighting. She never once did anything special for a charity, hosted a special party, threw out first pitch at a game. Never. I started zipping her in her second season. She said and did exactly the same thing every show. She served a purpose, I will admit, we have to have someone to hate.

I know it would take pages and pages to say this all, but I will keep it as Readers Digest as I can. I don’t go back to the first season Brandy was on or the second season even. I am going right to the housewarming party and after. Let’s see, Kyle, Lisa V., Eileen, Kim, Lisa R., is that everyone? hmmm. Anyway, they all had lovely things to say about Brandy, Kyle said she was happy for Brandy, sincerely, and that she was able to have her independence now. They all brought lovely gifts and were generous and gracious.… Read more »


Thanks for the link, GIGICAT! I went there, it looks like a great local, no kill charity. Just today I donated my Christmas donation to our own, and the NWF. I am funny and I post so many animal vids on my FB page. From CUTE ANIMAL VIDEOS. I am such a old cat woman and don’t care who calls me that it is a compliment. I got a bunch of gifts for Christmas this year from the “The Animal Rescue Site.” They have some great jackets and other stuff that represents animals. I am probably going to get snapped… Read more »
