Kyle Richards denies claims she spread rumors about Erika Jayne and Tom Girardi’s financial issues at Andy Cohen’s baby shower in 2019.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star appeared on Wednesday’s episode of Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen where she responded to Lisa Vanderpump’s claim that she spread rumors about Erika at Andy’s baby shower.
Kyle mocked Lisa’s British accent, saying, “I mean, Andy, I mean, I would never say something like this, ever. But one could argue perhaps that maybe her memory is fading along with her relevance. Because she wasn’t even at the baby shower.”
Andy couldn’t help but laugh at Kyle’s impersonation.
She added, “But I would never say something like that. You can think about that, though, I’m just saying.” Kyle also noted that multiple people texted her saying what a “joke” Lisa’s comments were.

Initally, Kyle reacted to Lisa’s allegation on Christian Gray Snow’s Instagram page.
The Bravo fan’s post read: “When your show premieres tomorrow but your last spin-off only averaged 6 weekly viewers. Pathetic lmao.”
The child actress turned reality star commented with a series of crying-laughing face emojis.
A source then told Page Six that Lisa’s claim “doesn’t seem to add up.”
“Kyle organized the event and was so busy, running around the room like a chicken with her head cut off. Why would she go out of her way to start gossip?” the insider questioned before adding that LVP “wasn’t even there.”
“She’s playing from a tired playbook and looks desperate. Lisa loves to throw gas on the fire and then run away,” added source. “She should stay in her lane and worry about promoting her own show.”
Meanwhile, Lisa responded to Kyle’s shade by retweeting a fan’s post that read: “@LisaVanderpump Doesn’t the saying go that people who are good liars use jokes to deflect? Good job Kyle we believe you did start the rumors just like the @TheRealCamilleG said. It’s Kyle’s MO. [The] best part is Erika already knows it’s true.”
