Kyle Richards has some things she wants to get off her chest. After part two of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 9 reunion aired Tuesday, Richards shared her many, many grievances on Twitter.
First, she described what she sees as the set-up of the show.
"Have you seen The Real Housewives? The Real Housewives follows a group of women's lives and how they navigate through their friendships," the 50-year-old tweets. "We are followed by cameras that capture what we say and do. We are expected to be honest and say how we feel about any given situation. The Real Housewives is NOT Lifestyles Of The Rich and Famous. It is not Sex In The City. It is not scripted. It's our reality. I have been on this show many years now. We just finished season 9 to be exact. There have been many tears and a lot of laughter over these 9 years."
Richards then cops to her share of mistakes, writing that "some seasons were so stressful" that she "cried the whole way through," and along the way, she has "made mistakes, made good choices, made bad choices, learned a lot and grown as a person."
She then references some of the major sticking points from season 9, including accusations that Lisa Vanderpump leaked a nasty story about Dorit Kemsley's dog to the media.
Richards writes that the PuppyGate scene made Kemsley, 43, "look bad for entertainment purposes … but that's part of reality television."
"Dorit made a mistake. She should have turned the dog back into Vanderpump Dogs," the former American Woman producer wrote. "There is no disputing that. Maybe it was the $5,000 return policy that made Dorit think finding a good home for Lucy on her own was a better choice."
She then moved on to Vanderpump's husband Ken Todd who slammed RH's "vicious nastiness" n a tweet earlier this week, writing that Vanderpump was not "bullied" and instead that Vanderpump is guilty of "scheming about how to make your friend look bad," calling her behavior "a pattern that you would think would stop because she WAS going through a hard time. This pattern many of us had seen for so long it was hard to ignore."
Richards then moved onto Camille Grammer, who exchanged barbs with Vanderpump over of all things, bad breath.
"She uses twitter as a gauge to see what the audience thinks and throws out things she thinks people will support her about," Kyle writes about Camille, 50. "Like I said, some people work hard at the game of life. Especially when they have been doing it so long. The way Camille treated everyone was mind blowing.
She finished off the 29-tweet rant acknowledging there would likely be "backlash … coming my way for being honest." But "until then," she added, "check mate!"
