Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans are furious with Kyle Richards for her actions in the latest installment of the glamorous reality series.
The child actor-turned-TV-personality and has been a Beverly Hills housewife since the show’s first episode over 12 years ago certainly has a penchant for drama, even by “RHOBH” standards. Though Kyle is a mainstay of “RHOBH,” she’s had her fair share of controversy and fights with other cast members. Her ongoing feud with former costar Lisa Vanderpump over Puppygate continues to this day! And even though Kyle added her big sisters Kim Richards and Kathy Hilton to the cast, we all know how sisters can fight. OG “RHOBH” fans remember when Kyle fought with Kim in the limo and Kim accused Kyle of “[stealing her] damn house.”
Of course, Real Housewives are expected to bring drama every season; that’s what they get paid for! But fans say Kyle took it too far this time. Here are the two things Kyle did to cause such an uproar.
Kyle sides with Erika in the fight between Erika and Garcelle
First up, Erika Jayne is seen swearing at her enemy Garcelle Beauvais’ 14-year-old son, Jax, in a sneak preview of the July 6 episode. But instead of judging Jayne, in a later scene, Richards, her husband Mauricio and housewife Dorit Kemsley praise Jayne for finally being able to “loosen up.” After a backlash from social media and Beauvais himself, Richards defended himself in comments from a fan who reposted the scene on Instagram. “I laughed at a friend’s drunken, ridiculous behavior,” wrote Richards. “NOT about respecting someone’s child … I wasn’t even there to see that and only later heard about Erika and what she said.”
Well, fans don’t seem so convinced. “I would love it if Erika talked to her kids like that,” wrote one fan under the Instagram post. “Why is it different when it’s Garcelle? Don’t they deserve the same respect and dignity? Uff.
In a comment to Metro UK, Richards claims she hasn’t witnessed Jayne cursing and hasn’t had a chance to apologize to Beauvais yet. “I am a mother of four daughters. I think obviously if I had seen it – because I just saw it on Instagram last night, that clip – I would have had a different reaction.”
Fans think Kyle Sutton is being cruel to Stracke
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills audience is also furious with Kyle Richards over a conversation in which Richards implied she doesn’t believe costar Sutton Stracke actually had two miscarriages. In a scene at the end of the June 28 episode, Stracke revealed that she had previously lost two babies while trying to comfort cast member Diana Jenkins, who recently suffered a miscarriage. In response, Richards questioned Stracke about the validity of her story, as Richards “had never heard that before.” Personal thing,” Richards said, “I love you, but this feels like bulls***… You’re saying you lost two babies? You say that out of the blue. We don’t know!”
Fans online were shocked by Richard’s questioning about Sutton’s miscarriage. “There’s a reason her name is Vyle Kyle. Sorry not sorry,” wrote one user. “IS KYLE OK?!?!? She’s out of line this season!!!” another condemned. Although the context of the scene shows that Jenkins was really fed up with Stracke’s inability to “listen” and instead only bring up her own personal experiences, this case made Richards look particularly cruel to Stracke. We’ll have to see if Richards makes amends for that on the upcoming July 6 episode of “RHOBH.”
