Kyle Richards has been at the center of drama during this weekend’s BravoCon as the star of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills gets confronted with all the headlines she’s been making this past year.
As the new season of RHOBH starts airing on Bravo, her marriage with husband Mauricio Umansky seems to be a little shaky. During a recent episode, her closest friend Dorit Kemsley confronts her about possible marital issues on camera, something Richards said was not the most pleasant thing.
“I was very uncomfortable when Dorit asked me that question about by marriage on camera,” Richards told Deadline during an interview at BravoCon in Las Vegas. “You can see that I clammed up immediately and I got nervous. I wasn’t ready to talk about any issues that were going on. I wasn’t even knowing how to handle that in my life without cameras.”
During the RHOBH panel at BravoCon on Sunday, the topic was brought up as the drama plays out in front of cameras. Richards got emotional talking about it saying that her and Umansky are still “trying to figure it out. We know that we love each other…”
Richards got emotional and started tearing up which prompted the fans in the Gold Room to start chanting “Kyle” in support of her.
A sneak peek of an upcoming episode aired where Sutton Stracke and Garcelle Beauvais press Richards on talking about her marriage. Richards said that in the moment she felt that “everyone was coming at me” instead of showing their support.
When Beuvais was asked for her take she said, “I understand that and I feel for Kyle and I feel for what she’s going through but we’re on a reality show. You’ve been on it for 13 years, that’s part of our job… is to ask things of each other.”
“The reality is we’re on a reality show,” Beauvais added. “I don’t want to feel like we’re the bad guys for asking questions.”
Richards clarified that it wasn’t about the questions that her co-stars asked but more about how the questions were asked and pled for compassion from them.
