With everything that has been going on in the past few months with Kim Richards, many have been wondering what her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills costars think about her situation. While most of them have remained quiet, Lisa Vanderpump is speaking out.
As we previously reported, Kim called Lisa out during an interview with Entertainment Tonight.
“She’s witty, she’s fun, she has a big heart for people she loves, but I think Lisa is … she’s phony,” Kim said in the interview. “Sometimes I felt like she was my friend, and you know, I believed her, but in a heartbeat she changes.”
Lisa heard about Kim’s comment and told Entertainment Tonight how she really felt about it.
“That kind of really stung and hurt because I feel that I have never involved myself too much in questioning her sobriety,” Lisa said. “Even last season, I said very much I don’t want to get involved because I didn’t feel like I was that close to her. There were other people who were much closer to her.”
She added, “That really hurt because I thought, ‘Hold on a second, I’ve always supported you and always wanted the best for you.’ Even if I had my suspicions, I never really kind of revealed anything.”
Lisa did say that she still supports Kim, but she also revealed that she may have known of Kim’s troubles earlier than we thought.
“I see what’s been going on since then,” Lisa said. “She told us she’s struggling.”
Lisa was then asked if she thought Kim should come back to RHOBH, but she said that is not her decison.
“Whenever somebody is on the show, they’re on the show for a reason, and sometime the dynamic changes, not everybody is happy with certain choices,” Lisa explained. “But there’s been a lot being said about me having the power to eliminate cast members. We don’t get that power.”
Even though Lisa expressed her support for Kim, she revealed that she has not spoken to her since her arrests.
“She probably has a lot of support from her family,” Lisa said.
What do you think about what Lisa had to say? Do you believe what she said about her support for Kim? Do you agree with Kim that Lisa is phony and manipulative?
