Kyle Richards Talks Last Minute Decision to Return to RHOBH for Season 14, Dating, and her Friendship with Morgan Wade


Kyle Richards is opening up about her last-minute decision to return to RHOBH season 14. She also dishes on dating, her friendship with Morgan Wade, and her struggles in season 13.

On Tuesday’s episode of the Bitch Bible podcast, Kyle Richards addressed rumors that she and bestie Morgan Wade are on the outs.

“[Morgan]’s great. She’s good, and we’re good. She’s on tour right now and just on the road and busy, busy,” Kyle revealed.

Speaking of her friendship with Morgan, Kyle also shaded Jeff Lewis, who fueled reports she was in a lesbian relationship with Morgan.

”I had [a bone to pick],” she said about her current relationship status with Jeff. “He was sending me a lot of orchids, apologizing all the time.”

Throughout season 13 of RHOBH, Kyle was accused of not sharing enough about her separation from Mauricio Umansky with her cast mates. 

“I don’t like the mystery in the sense that it makes people more intrigued, but I don’t like feeling like I have…. I’ve shown so much of my life for so long,” she explained. “Obviously, they’re curious … but just because people are nosy or curious doesn’t mean I owe that to them. I show a lot, and I’m also thinking of my family. I’m thinking of Mo. I’m thinking of my daughters and they come before any TV show.”

“I know a lot about these women. There has to be, at some point, I’m struggling. I was struggling. Help me out a little bit. You know? I’m having this hard time. Can you maybe just give me a little bit of a break?” she continued.

On top of dealing with members of the RHOBH cast poking and prodding into her marriage issues, Kyle faced rumors about her friendship with Morgan and was also accused of using Ozempic.

“Those rumors tortured me because it’s so frustrating when you’re working so hard,” Kyle noted. “People are literally losing their hair and losing their muscle tone and their stomachs are paralyzed. I don’t want to get in trouble here, but that’s the stories that I’m seeing out there, so I don’t know why anybody would still be doing that … Years ago, I probably would’ve tried anything, honestly … The thing is I also don’t really need that kind of thing because of my personality. If I really want to do something, I can take it too far with exercising too much and not eating enough.”

Looking ahead to season 14 of RHOBH, Kyle admits she initially wasn’t sure what her storyline would be for the season.

“Right now, I’ve never been on my own. I was a mom at 19. When I lived alone after getting divorced very young, I lived in Beverly Hills in a condo that my mom lived in the same building. So I was kind of alone. I lived with Farrah and my mom was downstairs. This feels very different,” she revealed.

The 56-year-old recently began filming for the new season of RHOBH after signing on at the last minute.

“It’s not uncommon for it to be like this. It’s sort of like, each year, you think, some years, I’m like, ‘That was not bad,’ and, ‘I had fun this year, and there were very few issues with me. It’s been on someone else this year.’ But last year really was hard, and then after we wrapped and the reunion aired, Buying Beverly Hills started, and then it was like, rehashing everything again,” she explained. “So I really was just like, ‘I just don’t know if I can do this.’”

In conclusion, Kyle admitted that she’s not quite ready for dating.

“I think I need to take a beat,” she shared. “We’re both allowed to do whatever we want, which is so strange, but I don’t even… If someone flirts with me at a red light, I will hit the gas and go through the red light. I’m very uncomfortable. I’m not good with that.”
