After part 2 of the RHOBH season 9 reunion aired, Kyle fired off 29 tweets about her RHOBH co-stars and their drama in an epic Twitter rant. Kyle takes particular aim at Lisa Vanderpump, Ken Todd, Camille Grammer, and PuppyGate.
“Have you seen The Real Housewives? The Real Housewives follows a group of women’s lives and how they navigate through their friendships,” the RHOBH star tweeted. “We are followed by cameras that capture what we say and do. We are expected to be honest and say how we feel about any given situation. The Real Housewives is NOT Lifestyles Of The Rich and Famous. It is not Sex In The City. It is not scripted. It’s our reality. I have been on this show many years now. We just finished season 9 to be exact. There have been many tears and a lot of laughter over these 9 years.”
“Some seasons were so stressful it seems I cried the whole way through ( hence the internets nickname for me “Kryle” -ironically, that makes me) I have made mistakes, made good choices, made bad choices, learned a lot and grown as a person,” she continued.
“This season has left me so frustrated at times. Frustrated that people don’t always seem to see the obvious. No, It’s not editing. It’s people who are good at ‘the game’. Bad people can be good at it and good people can be bad at it,” Kyle said referrencing the PuppgyGate leak to Radar Online. “People who have spent their entire life treating life as a game and ‘winning’ at it have had lots of practice. When I was told to go to Vanderpump Dogs way back at the beginning of the season, I knew right away what was going on.”
Kyle went on to say that the PuppyGate drama made Dorit look bad for the sake of entertainment.
“I was brought there to unknowingly be a part of making Dorit look bad for entertainment purposes I suppose. Trust me, I know you think she didn’t need much help. I read the comments, see the preception of her from people that have never met her,” Kyle wrote. “But that’s part of reality television. You get to decide who you like, love or hate. Even though we have never met in person. We “signed up for it.”
The RHOBH star then admits: “Dorit made a mistake. She should have turned the dog back into Vanderpump Dogs. There is no disputing that. Maybe it was the $5,000 return policy that made Dorit think finding a good home for Lucy on her own was a better choice.”
Kyle then shifted her focus to Lisa Vanderpump’s husband Ken Todd and his “birthday tweet” rant that slammed the RHOBH cast for their treatment of his wife.
“Ken is angry because the cast ‘bullied’ Lisa when she was going through a hard time. Forgetting the fact that being honest isn’t bullying AND the fact that I resisted using any adjective in that realm when Ken got up in my face,” Kyle tweeted. “However, I DO understand that was a difficult time for Lisa. I had many conversations with her over this time. I also understand that she signed up for 2 reality shows during that time and one of them she had already shot [Vanderpump Rules].”
The RHOBH OG then takes aim at her former BFF’s scheming ways.
“With that said … if you’re going through a hard time then you would think you would be coming from a different place. Not scheming about how to make your friend look bad. Your close friend. The problem is it was not new behavior due to her having a hard time,” Kyle said.
Adding, “It was a pattern that you would think would stop because she WAS going through a hard time. This pattern many of us had seen for so long it was hard to ignore. That combined with the fact that we ALL “signed up” to be honest about what is going on in the group. If we aren’t being honest then we get called out for not being honest. If we are honest and you don’t like what someone is saying, you’re being ‘mean’.”
“It’s ironic to me that Ken said in his birthday tweet, that we were all talking about Lisa and what she did because we didn’t want to talk about what’s ‘really’ going on in our lives. Let’s talk about THAT… we talk about what is going on in our GROUP,” she continued. “Amongst the women in the cast. We talked about something that happened ON CAMERA. Something that couldn’t be ignored because it changed the dynamic of the group. Our children and husbands are not signed up or paid to be on the show. Sorry, Ken – Only women the get to hold ).”
Kyle points out, “Over these 9 years, we never discussed Ken’s and Lisa’s lawsuits (one came up briefly last year and I actually defended Ken and shot it down) we also never got into Lisa’s family, where she comes from or her background.”
“It seems Ken bringing up all of this stuff is to distract what started all of this in the first place. But bringing up things that are not relevant to what is going on in the group is a cheap shot. Especially when bringing up what someone’s child has gone through,” Kyle tweeted.
She then defends her reaction to Camille Grammer’s comment about LVP having bad breath explaining: “Where Ken is right is regarding comments Camille made about Lisa on camera that were mean and humiliating. Did we laugh? Yes. Nervous laugh. Like when you laugh in church – when you know you shouldn’t laugh but you can’t help it.”
“I am sorry for that,” she wrote. “I honestly could not believe my ears and then was even more shocked when I saw the complete 180 Camille made when interacting with Lisa. HOWEVER, I never said ‘keep going Camille, it’s true.’”
Kyle also denies Camille’s claims that she talked to her about LVP’s breath off-camera, tweeting, “If I had said the things Camille CLAIMS I said on camera, it would have been used. TRUST ME.”
She continued, “We don’t get away with anything around here. Have we shared things off-camera? Of course. Every one of us have said things off-camera. But saying something on camera that has nothing to do with what’s going on in the group and is just a mean, reckless comment that would humiliate someone is a low blow.”
“Camille came into the Reunion guns blazing. I honestly do not know why she was so angry. We, of course, are going to address the stuff she said and did. That’s what the Reunion is about,” Kyle explained.
Kyle then accuses Camille of coming after the rest of the cast to distract the audience from her own actions while getting sympathy from LVP fans.
“When she constantly contradicts herself I find myself thinking doesn’t she know there are cameras? This is going to be played back! Camille, in an attempt to distract from her actions, pretends she thinks we just were mad she said nice things about Lisa,” Kyle said.
“That way she can get a little support from trolls. By calling us Mean Girls. She uses Twitter as a gauge to see what the audience thinks and throws out things she thinks people will support her about. Like I said, some people work hard at the game of life. Especially when they have been doing it so long. The way Camille treated everyone was mind-blowing. Denise looked utterly shocked and hurt. And I don’t know what I did to Camille to warrant that behavior.”
Adding, “The only thing l have said about Camille up until now, is that she plays both sides of the fence and is a people pleaser. Both things that she admits to herself. So yeah, this is not Lifestyles Of The Rich and Famous. This is reality.”
“With all the bumps and bruises that come along with it. Moe, excuse me while I prepare for what backlash is coming my way for being honest. Until then … checkmate! Kyle XO,” Kyle concluded.
