If you recall, Ken bid farewell to Kyle by yelling “Goodbye Kyle” as he demanding she leave his home following a blowout fight between her and his wife Lisa Vanderpump.
The hashtag #GoodbyeKyle quickly went viral after Kyle and the RHOBH cast joked about the hashtag on social media.

However, not everyone thought the posts were funny. In fact, Vanderpump and her fans quickly accused Kyle and the RHOBH cast of bullying.
“Lisa finds it insulting that the women of RHOBH are posting videos mocking Ken,” a source close to Lisa told HollywoodLife back in April. “Lisa is embarrassed that she yelled at Kyle. However, she is so protective of her husband and hates to see other people make such fun of him. Lisa loves Ken with all her heart and they are both very protective of one another. Lisa knows Ken was just stepping in to defend his wife and he’d do it again in a heartbeat if he felt he needed to.”
In a post on Instagram, Kyle defended “making a joke” of #GoodbyeKyle instead of “making a big deal about a man getting up in my face.”
So, it’s not surprising that this drama came up at the RHOBH season 9 reunion.
“Here’s another example of Lisa trying to make me look bad,” Kyle told Andy Cohen at the reunion, adding that Lisa only pretended to be “wounded” by the action.
“My sister Kathy [Hilton] went to their house and she told me that Ken was joking and saying “Goodbye Kathy” and they were laughing. So guess what you’re not hurt by that. You also thought it was f$%#ing funny.”
Meanwhile, Kyle also got super emotional, at the reunion, over the end of her friendship with Lisa.
“It’s sad to me. It’s… It’s just sad to me. It’s sad that she’s not here. People tweet me pictures all the time, and every time I see something like that, where I’m joking and laughing [with her], it makes me sad,” Kyle explained.
Kyle continued, “I paid the ultimate price by being honest [with Lisa]. And I’ve thought about, [what if] if I hadn’t gone to her house, and not told her, and then she would have seen us sitting there [talking about the RadarOnline story] — how would that have played out?”
“It’s sad to think how she’s feeling right now. This must be a weird day for her, [missing the reunion],” Kyle added. “It must be hard for her knowing that we’re all here, and she didn’t come. She’s gotta be feeling bad, too.”
Despite her issues with Lisa, Kyle said her former bestie has “a lot of amazing qualities. With that said, you take the good and the bad with your friends, and that’s a side of her that I accepted.”
