Following the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season nine premiere on Monday night, Kyle took to her Bravo TV blog, where she opened up about the events of the episode and posed questions into why Lisa was pushing a story about Dorit Kemsley and her dog Lucy while simultaneously acting as if she didn’t want to talk about the matter.
“When John Sessa from Vanderpump Dogs asked me if I recognized the dog, I had no clue whose dog that was. It was clear to me they wanted me to know the story about Dorit and the dog. Lisa was saying, ‘We aren’t going to talk about it,’ but they brought the dog out for a reason,” Kyle wrote.
“I watched as they did this song and dance about the dog and ‘not wanting to talk about it.’ Meanwhile, I was told the entire story. It seemed odd that both Teddi and I had been given this information knowing full well that it should be a private matter,” she continued.
As Kyle pointed out, pushing the Dorit dog story would only damage Dorit. So, she says it was hard for her to understand why Lisa, who was close friends with Dorit at the time, would want to damage her reputation in such a way.
“Obviously having this story put out there would only hurt Dorit. But why? Dorit and Lisa are such close friends. It didn’t sit well with me, and I felt I wasn’t getting an accurate story,” Kyle explained.
As for the Daily Mail party at TomTom, Kyle confirmed she was invited to the event by the Daily Mail, not Lisa, and once she contacted Lisa, she was informed that Lisa hadn’t invited anyone herself. Instead, the event was a Daily Mail event and included the publication’s own guest list.
A short time later, after Kyle attempted to make plans with Lisa and said she was with Teddi Mellencamp, Lisa lashed out, saying, “Oh, you’re with the friend who showed up to support me,” in reference to the Daily Mail event.
“I was very taken aback and thought to myself, ‘This is exactly why I called Lisa regarding the party to clarify, because I knew she would do this,'” Kyle recalled.
In her response to Lisa, Kyle reminded her that she didn’t invite anyone to the event herself and insisted it wasn’t her party. She also told Lisa not to try and cause issues between them.
“I don’t have to look. I didn’t invite anyone, but some just show up and I love them for it…Teddy Bear,” Lisa reportedly replied.
“I KNEW she would turn nothing into something. I felt set up,” Kyle said of the issue, which was addressed during Monday’s show. “I love Lisa, but she loves to jump at a chance to make me look like a bad friend, which I am NOT. I pride myself on being a good friend, and all my friends can attest to that.”
Meanwhile, on Twitter, Kyle responded to criticism from a fan who felt she was a bit insensitive to Lisa during the show yesterday when Lisa was crying about her brother’s passing. According to Kyle, her ‘me too’ response was based on the fact that she had also been suffering from severe anxiety during the period.
I shouldn’t have said that. I was referring to the fact that I was dealing with crippling anxiety & had to start taking medication for it. NOTHING compared to what Lisa went through. https://t.co/rVN7gywIEW
