'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Recap: Lisa & Brandi Aren't Kyle's Real Friends

brandi glanville lisa vanderpumpFor anyone who was wondering whether or not Kyle Richards was going to be the odd man out this season on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, I think it's safe to say that question has been answered. Lisa Vanderpump and Brandi Glanville have it out for Kyle. And while it's one thing to not like someone, Christ on a cracker, these women want blood.


As everyone knows, Kyle and her husband have been dealing with cheating rumors over the past year. Serious rumors. Rumors that involve Maurico cheating on Kyle with a transgender prostitute. Understandably, it's greatly affected Kyle and her family, and she'd rather not talk about it on television and with the girls. Which, of course, is the exact opposite of what Lisa and Brandi want to do.

If you recall, last week when the ladies were having lunch at Carlton's medieval castle, Brandi brought up the accusations in front of the entire group. It caught Kyle off-guard, and she brushed the subject off, clearly not wanting to talk about it. And then a few days later, Brandi was approached by paparazzi, who claimed Kyle called her a bully. Brandi did not like that.

Brandi was incredibly pissed off that the paparazzi, whose word is gospel, you know, insinuated that she may have been bullying Kyle, and she wouldn't let up on Kyle about it. Kyle of course denied ever saying that, but both Brandi and Lisa went on and on about how Kyle should have sent out a tweet, saying she never said that about them. Basically, they were concerned with themselves and only themselves.

Now, of course, no one wants to be called a bully by random photographers when they're walking down the street with their kids, but is Brandi really playing the "I was just trying to help Kyle out" card here? If she truly wanted to be a "girl's girl," she should have pulled her aside to talk to her about it. And while we're at it, Brandi's "helping" seemed to have gotten her into trouble with Joyce, as well. Joyce claims Brandi called her and told her that Lisa couldn't take criticism, and somehow Brandi denied it and turned it into something about her trying to help out. Whatevs.

I'm definitely less of a Kyle Richards fan than I was in the beginning of RHOBH, but I'm kind of on her side here. If Brandi and Lisa were her real friends, who were genuinely concerned with her well-being, they'd quit worrying about Kyle announcing on Twitter that they're not bullies and be more interested in how they can help. I'm sure there's plenty to this story that we don't know, and I certainly don't think Kyle's a saint, but from the view of a mere RHOBH spectator, Lisa and Brandi's behavior was just plain gross.

Do you think Lisa and Brandi were out of line?
