Kyle Richards addressed the ongoing claims of hypocrisy aimed at her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills co-star, Lisa Rinna, during Wednesday night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live.
As Rinna continues to be called out for giving Erika Jayne space amid her legal scandal and divorce, after prodding both Lisa Vanderpump and Denise Richards about their own scandals, Kyle shared her thoughts on the matter as Kathy Hilton and Crystal Kung-Minkoff reacted to Erika’s story regarding her split from Thomas Girardi.
“First of all, this was six months ago, even longer maybe, so we were just getting information as it was unfolding and we still don’t know everything. And, to be fair, Rinna is a lot closer with Erika than she was with Denise,” Kyle, who was seated in the audience, explained on the June 23 episode.
“But we didn’t know anything. We still don’t know what’s going on,” Kyle added.
During the same episode of WWHL, host Andy Cohen questioned guests Kathy and Crystal about whether or not they initially believed Erika’s explanation for her and Thomas’ breakup.
“I believe she’s telling the truth,” Kathy confirmed, adding that she doesn’t know Erika all that well.
“I’d only met her when I had a birthday party for Kyle at my house,” she explained. “It was like, 16 girls two years ago and she was very polite and quiet and lovely and I put her at our table because I felt like I didn’t know her.”
As for Crystal, she too believed Erika’s claims were truthful.
“When she told us about her divorce, I had only met her two weeks into that so I, of course, I believe face value. So yeah,” Crystal noted.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 11 airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on Bravo.
