Home » Lisa Vanderpump Opens Up About Her ‘Uncomfortable’ Run-ins With Kyle Richards in Los Angeles
Lisa Vanderpump opened up about her frequent run-ins with Kyle Richards during a recent podcast appearance.
After Kyle confirmed the two of them had crossed paths on a number of occasions in recent months, the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member explained why she’s never thrilled to run into her former friend before addressing editing complaints made by Lisa Rinna and dishing on a potential return.
“I seem to run into Kyle a few times,” Vanderpump revealed on Dear Media’s The Skinny Confidential Him & Her Podcast.
While Vanderpump and Kyle have seen each other in stores and in restaurants, Vanderpump doesn’t have an interest in reconciling their friendship.
“She always runs up to me and she always goes, ‘Hi, how are you?’ And I go, ‘Good.’ But I think when somebody doesn’t have good intention for you, where does that leave a friendship? I want friends around me that have good intention for me,” she explained.
As for Rinna, Vanderpump noticed that her former co-star had shared something odd on her Instagram page months ago in regard to how she hoped to be portrayed after being pegged as a mean girl during season 10.
“We saw Lisa Rinna post something saying, ‘Oh, can you all please tell Bravo that you want to see us being nice and not having fights?,’ at the end of last season, but why?” Vanderpump wondered. “I would never do anything that I didn’t want to do. It’s a reality show, but my reality is how I’m going to react. And if you’re going to overreact or create something… I don’t think I was ever inauthentic.”
While Vanderpump quit the show after being labeled a liar by her castmates, she said she had the “best time” while looking back at the many seasons she spent on the Bravo reality series and noted that she loves the network.
“Would I go back? I would never say never because it was fantastic. And I had a great time,” she admitted.
Following the Puppy Gate drama of RHOBH on season nine, it was noted that the ladies of the show were furious at producers for using them to create a storyline that would ultimately launch a new spinoff for Vanderpump. While that spinoff, Vanderpump Dogs, wasn’t announced until over a year later, Vanderpump said it was not far-fetched to think her co-stars were jealous, especially considering the show is her second spinoff.
“In the second season to be given Vanderpump Rules, that was a huge… because a lot of other Housewives tried for their own spinoff and they did pilots and it didn’t come to fruition,” Vanderpump explained.
“I had a lot of opportunities that others didn’t have. And maybe that did result in some feelings,” she continued. “I mean, I was suddenly on Dancing With the Stars or I got my star on the Walk of Fame or Vanderpump Rules was going on. And then I was doing a lot of things politically as well. I was trying to fight for the humane treatment of dogs. I was speaking to Congress… Maybe it did result in feelings.”
Although Vanderpump had a great time appearing on RHOBH, at least generally speaking, she went on to reveal that what made her the most upset about her time on the show was the reaction she received from her castmates after the devastating suicide of her brother Mark Vanderpump.
“I had been accused of being so British and so stiff upper lip and not sharing my feelings. And there you have it. I was a f**king broken mess. And how was it dealt with by them? You saw it,” she shared.
