Kyle Richards is clapping back on social media once again!
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills OG was forced to defend herself after a fan accused her of making fun of Dorit Kemsley’s accent and her new business venture with famed Los Angeles restaurant Buca di Beppo.
On last week’s episode of RHOBH, Kyle mocked Dorit’s accent while in Rome. The RHOBH OG poked fun at Dorit speaking Italian despite the wait staff in Rome talking perfect English. She also joked that Dorit might come back from Rome with a new accent.
“I mean, you gotta love Dorit. She’s speaking in Italian even though the waiter’s speaking English and the menu’s in English,” Kyle joked her confessional interview. “I have a feeling Dorit’s gonna have a new accent when we leave Italy. She’s gonna be greeting her customers at Buca di Beppo… ‘Welcome to Buca di Beppo! Have some meatball, rigatoni, Pomodoro.’”

One fan, in particular, called Kyle out after the above clip was shared on the Real Housewives of BH Instagram page.
“The fact that Kyle thinks this was funny-sad actually. She is [no] one’s friend – making fun of, mocking a “friend’s” new business venture screams insecurity,” the fan commented.
Kyle replied to the accusation and pointed out that Dorit made fun of her fashion line earlier this season.
“If you recall, Dorit made fun of my business at the beginning of the season. With my clothing line and fashion show. We tease like this. We are asked questions in our interviews and answer them so that people like you can then, in turn, make fun of us,” Kyle said.
Kyle and Dorit have butted heads throughout season 10. Back in May, Kyle revealed to Us Weekly that she and Dorit weren’t speaking directly, as a result of the drama on the show.
“Directly, no. I haven’t. We’re in a group chat, but … we’ve kind of not been talking directly because I know she’s mad. I know that I’m mad,” Kyle said when asked if she’s currently speaking to Dorit.
Despite the drama, Kyle is hopeful she and Dorit can patch up their friendship.
“We’ll get over it. I really care about Dorit,” she admitted. “We probably both need a little time to get over some of the comments and the interview bytes and Twitter and all that stuff or Watch What Happens Live.”
And from the looks of it, that very well may be the case as Dorit did attend the RHOBH reunion after-party at Kyle’s house a few weeks back.
Meanwhile, other fans agreed that Kyle’s comments about Dorit were mean spirited and reeked of jealousy.
“Kyle is sooo jealous – Dorit is actually intelligent. Kyle just has a string of failures to her name,” one fan commented.
Another wrote, “Kyle is jealous of Dorit and other housewives. I loved hearing Dorit speak Italian.”
Other fans understood that Kyle was just “joking” and felt her comments were “hilarious” and “spot-on.”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. EST on Bravo.
