The new season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is right around the corner! This week, OK! caught up with original BH wife Kyle Richards to get the scoop. The child actress discussed the new ladies, her falling out with Lisa, and how she dealt with gossip.
Last season, Mauricio was the subject of some pretty heavy cheating rumors. Kyle was furious with Lisa for not better defending her marriage, and hurt by other cast members who brought up the tabloid tales.
“I’d never been the subject of rumors, other than in high school! I really didn’t know how to handle it. My husband is a stand-up guy, and to think that this happened because of the show… I felt guilty for bringing that into his life. But it’s actually made us even stronger.”
This season, Kyle might be looking to strengthen other relationships in her life! Lisa and Kyle’s strong friendship began to deteriorate when the Vanderpump Rules star accused Mauricio of using people to sell houses (ex: cozying up to the Maloofs right before they sold their home).
“That [accusation] was a big part of our issues… she wasn’t being supportive. We went through some hard times, but I think it was a friendship worth working on. It can be difficult to navigate with the cameras and millions of people weighing in, but we’re in a good place.”
As for Kyle’s opinion on the ongoing Lisa-Brandi feud, the housewife says she would still side with her former bestie. “Today, I would be Team Lisa. But things change very fast around here!”
Last but not least, what can Kyle dish about the new season? As far as reports of a brawl at Elieen’s house, Kyle sets the record (sort of) straight.
“The stories aren’t accurate, but something did happen. The two new cast members are a very interesting combination!
Are you looking forward to Season 5? What do you think happened at Eileen’s party?
