Kyle Richards and Teddi Mellencamp have picked sides in the “she said-she said” Real Housewives of Beverly Hills drama between Brandi Glanville and Denise Richards.
While fellow co-star Garcelle Beauvais is Team Denise, the same can’t be said for Teddi and Kyle.
On the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills After Show, Kyle and Teddi reveal why they believe Brandi’s claims.
Teddi admits that she found Brandi’s confession very compelling.
“The part that resonated with me is Brandi seemed hurt. She…was talking about Denise like …like this beautiful woman was interested in me. You know it really felt to me like somebody who had been hurt and didn’t know how to handle it,” Teddi revealed. “It wasn’t necessarily like a… why…it didn’t seem like she was making up a story. It seemed like she was hurt and telling the story because she was hurt.”
Teddi added, “Kim kept saying, you know, ‘Brandi is really hurt because the one thing that Brandi really prides herself on is not being a cheater.’”
“And so the fact that Denise has made her out to feel like a cheater because Denise told her you know, ‘Aaron can never know’ and blah blah blah…now all of a sudden the one thing that Brandi has prided herself on, now she feels guilty about,” Teddi explained.
Meanwhile, despite their rocky history, Kyle says she immediately believed Brandi.
“I never thought Brandi was making them up,” Kyle said of Brandi’s allegations. “All I know is that they were friends and, you know, I had seen pictures of them on Instagram together when this incident allegedly happened. And then it sort of made more sense of why she was so nervous coming to the Children’s Hospital event. Because I was like, ‘Why is she so nervous when she literally was on the show for years and the cameras like …what’s the big deal?’ But now it made more sense.”
“I mean, listen. Brandi and I have had our issues. For lack of a better word, she can be a real a**hole sometimes,” Kyle continued. “I just don’t see her to be someone who invents stories. I really don’t. I mean, that was never our issue, you know? Even the stuff that she had said back in the day about the tabloids and this and that. She was not saying that she believed those things in the tabloids. She was, you know, bringing them up to create havoc in my life. But she even said, ‘I don’t believe ’em; I know for a fact somebody I spoke to said it was made up’ and blah, blah, blah. But I just don’t see her being a liar. So when she said that, I figured, OK. Even though there was several, like, [gasps] salacious, I wasn’t surprised actually.”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. EST on Bravo.
