The friendship between Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars Lisa and Kyle seems to keep getting tested. Most recently, Lisa got hurt that Kyle did not defend vocalize any support when Camille accused Lisa of not owning her restaurant, SUR. The two had a sit down on this week’s show and Kyle said she felt Lisa holds grudges, and does not defend her because Lisa is a strong woman who can hold her own. Lisa agrees, but says it’d be nice for Kyle as a friend to demonstrate that she still backs her up.
Lisa is taking to her Bravo blog to talk about Kyle’s recounting to Mauricio of what happened with Camille in Vegas, and also talks about the parameters of the friendship as it stands currently! Lisa writes:
As we start this episode with Kyle saying she was coming over to my house, relaying the story of Vegas to Mauricio, it appeared to me that her recollection was slightly different to mine. Anyway we decided to talk just us, without the intervention of the others.
First let me be very clear here — if I held a grudge I wouldn’t probably speak to many of these women ever again. But relationships evolve, dynamics change, and sometimes loyalties divide.
In regard to Kyle, I always believed that whatever has transpired between the two of us, our friendship was always worth saving. Many situations that have taken place — the first tea party, the reunion, witnessing the conversations between her and Taylor — have all manifested in a substantial change in my feelings towards her. I regard her differently. Now if that is interpreted by her as me holding a grudge, then I do not have the power to change that. I personally feel it is a passive aggressive swipe once more. And it’s also hard for me to understand how she recalls the many issues as “petty.” I would never minimize the feelings of somebody close to me. . .
Whenever any of these instances were brought up, it was always treated with a slightly dismissive attitude by herself and Mauricio, never truly validating the depth of hurt that ensued after some of these instances. So I voice my opinion, but sincerely wondered if any of it would resonate. I can’t deny how we can laugh and we still continue to have moments where caution is thrown to the wind and we resume the carefree relationship that once was. But when you really hold a friend close, you need that reassurance that if all goes awry then they will support you. I rarely need it, as I am a strong but sensitive woman with an emotionally uncomplicated life. But I value that quality and will always repay it.
Whose side are you on? Do you think Lisa is being too over sensitive, or is Kyle at fault here for not being a loyal friend?
