Kyle Richards felt a bit strange when it came time to begin filming the 10th season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills last summer without her longtime co-star and former friend, Lisa Vanderpump.
In a couple of new interviews, Kyle opened up about filming the show without Lisa before sharing her thoughts on their potential reconciliation, revealing if Lisa was mentioned on season 10, and confirming that some of her castmates are not on speaking terms.
“Before starting I was thinking, ‘Oh my God, this is so weird.’ But I also felt like that with [Adrienne Maloof] and [Taylor Armstrong],” Kyle told E! News on April 14. “So, yes, of course I thought about that before, but then once it starts there’s so much going on, you don’t really think about it.”
While Kyle and Lisa haven’t spoken for some time, aside from one recent and awkward run-in at a restaurant, Kyle admitted she will always care for her one-time bestie.
“I think that anytime you’ve been friends with somebody you care about them that much, that there’s always going to be something there and that’s my personality at least,” she explained.
“I felt like the whole thing was stupid and that we could definitely work through that but until she’s open to it then that’s not an option,” Kyle explained, adding that the door is “always open” for a reunion in her eyes.
During a second interview on Tuesday, Kyle shared that although Lisa has been on her mind throughout the past year, she wasn’t a hot topic during RHOBH season 10.
“I don’t even think Lisa’s name comes up, to be honest. We all have so much going on in our lives,” Kyle told PEOPLE. “This season had a lot going on. Nobody wants to have issues, but they inevitably come up.”
According to Kyle, certain members of the show are no longer talking to one another.
“Whatever is going on in people’s lives, whether they want it out or not, comes up! So it’s drama, and some people aren’t speaking. But it’s also a lot of fun,” she added.
