Kyle Richards is clapping back at Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge’s claim that she’s “vanilla” and plays it safe on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
“Well, A) they don’t know how much money I make. B) Like I say, I don’t play it safe,” Kyle told Us Weekly. “I’ve had a lot of issues over these years, 10 years, a lot of them.”
The RHOBH OG went on to say that she will continue to be herself, and unlike others, she won’t do things “just for TV purposes.”
“That does not include getting drunk and putting my tongue in another married woman’s mouth,” she quipped, referring to Tamra’s infamous season 14 kiss with costar Braunwyn Windham-Burke. “On or off-camera.”
Vicki and Tamra threw shade at Kyle during an Instagram Live earlier this month. When asked about Kyle, Vicki called her “kind of vanilla.”
“I don’t see any conflict, like I just see her, like, playing the safe lane always,” Vicki said.
Tamra couldn’t help but agree. However, she quickly pointed out that Kyle still gets her massive Bravo paycheck despite “playing it safe.”
“Well, she’s still got her million-dollar paycheck,” Tamra quipped.
Meanwhile, Tamra insists she never called Kyle “vanilla” and says the two have since smoothed things over.
“I talked to Kyle, and things are fine,” Tamra told the DailyMail. “It was a misunderstanding. I didn’t say she was vanilla – those were not my words!”
“I’ve always loved and adored Kyle, and I think she is the staple that holds RHOBH together. I have nothing but love and respect for her,” she added.
As for Kyle’s comment about her and Braunwyn’s season 14 makeout, Tamra said, “Next time I see Kyle, I’ll put my tongue down HER throat!”
Thoughts on Kyle’s response? Do you think Tamra and Kyle’s feud is a “misunderstanding?”
