Kyle Richards is spilling the tea about the upcoming “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” four-part reunion.
Richards appeared on Us Weekly’s “Getting Real with the Housewives” podcast and, of course, the topic of her highly controversial co-star, Erika Jayne, came up.
“It’s hard when you’re talking on camera and she’s probably nervous about what she’s saying,” Richards said of Jayne’s appearance at the reunion. “She’s talking about people who did not sign up for the show. You don’t know what’s going through her mind and the audience doesn’t always get that, but I could tell she was nervous. And that’s why some of the stories were probably confusing for people, but a lot of those questions were answered at the reunion.”
Jayne was ostracized by much of the cast after news broke revealing her estranged husband was wrapped up in a lawsuit alleging he embezzled millions from victims of various tragedies, including the Lion Air plane crash. Law.com details many of these claims, including Christina Fulton’s claim that she is missing $729,300 of a $924,300 settlement with Uber over a 2016 crash.
Richards has been an outspoken supporter of Jayne and doubled down her support on the podcast as well.
“Erika has been nothing but a great friend to me and supportive and kind,” Richards said. “I know that she puts on a tough girl act, but she is a very sensitive person.”
Erika Jayne Calls Co-Stars’ Comments About ‘RHOBH’ Season ‘Pure Fiction’
On October 6, 2021, three of Jayne’s “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” castmates spoke to the Los Angeles Times about the whirlwind 11th season of the hit reality show. Jayne was none too happy about what they had to say.
Sutton Stracke, Garcelle Beauvais and Crystal Kung Minkoff all sat down together shortly after the reunion was filmed to walk through their sides of things.
“When I left Kyle’s house in La Quinta, my first call was to production,” Stracke said of the moments after learning of the lawsuits. “When I read the article the fourth time, I got concerned because we were hearing stories from one side, and I was like, ‘Are we gonna keep hearing stories? On camera? Do we need an attorney to kind of help us, guide us through filming?’ That was really my biggest question. And they said: ‘This is such a great question. Why don’t you get the girls together?'”
Jayne took to Twitter shortly after the article was published to simply say, “Pure fiction.”
The ‘RHOBH’ Reunion Teaser Gives a Glimpse of an Angry Erika
The first of four episodes of the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” reunion airs on October 13, and the trailer already has everyone talking.
The reunion, like much of season 11, will be centered on Jayne, as evidenced in the trailer. And her temper is coming out, according to E! Online.
“You and your husband and you and your husband were laughing at my f***** up life,” she said in regards to Richards and husband Mauricio Umansky, as well as Dorit and PK Kemsley.
“I can’t control what comes out of their mouths,” Richards says back.
“And I can’t control what Tom Girardi did,” Jayne says in return.
The Kemsleys were wrapped up in their own legal controversy when they were accused of owing $1.3 million in taxes, according to PageSix.com.
