You better think twice before saying anything bad about Kim Richards in front of Lisa Vanderpump. The RHOBH star recently revealed that she feels super protective of her former co-star and anyone caught talking bad about Kim will have to answer to her.
Lisa reveals to E! that the two former co-stars have been in contact since the death of Kim’s ex-husband Monty Brinson and that during this fragile time Lisa feels especially protective of Kim.
“I’ve texted her backwards and forwards, and she’s been very sweet. She’s so lovely and the problems that she’s kind of had, it’s been very difficult for her, I would imagine. But you know what, really, I hate? It’s now if I see the show and I see people being negative about her, I hate that.”
While rumors are swirling that friends and family fear Kim will break her sobriety following Monty’s death, Lisa fights back saying she is “1,000 percent sure” Kim remains sober.
In her Bravo blog this week Lisa also defended Kim against attacks on her behavior during season five of RHOBH. Lisa wrote, “When one party is challenged by addiction, fighting a daily battle for sobriety, and obviously fearful of being exposed of succumbing to the daily demands that alcolism entails. Alcholism embodies enslavement that will follow your path eternally. Bitter words were voiced against Kim from Rinna calling her a rabid dog, which is hard to compute. It’s a year later, Kim has made great headway…Kyle’s loyalty to her sister will supersede any wish to be involved in negativity. That is why she left the table and, as a friend, I dutifully followed.”
I know Lisa and Kim don’t have the best relationship but it’s nice to hear Lisa support Kim because she can use it. I also commend Lisa for helping Kyle and not getting sucked into the Kim bashing fest that occurred during this week’s RHOBH. Kim’s made mistakes but she’s not defined by them.
Thoughts on Lisa’s support for Kim? Are you surprised Lisa reached out to Kim? Do you think the RHOBH cast needs to forgive Kim and her actions last season?
