Kyle Richards Couldn’t Watch Herself After She Was “Overserved” at an RHOBH Party Last Season
Richards’ decision to quit alcohol comes after she previously expressed regret over her behavior while drinking during filming for RHOBH last season. On the season 12 episode “Calamity Jayne,” Richards awkwardly butted in on Sutton Stracke and Diana Jenkins’ conversation about their past miscarriages.
After Stracke told Jenkins that she lost two babies to miscarriages, an inebriated Richards questioned the story. She then accused Stracke of making the claim about her pregnancy history “out of the blue.”
“I love you, but this feels like bulls***,” Richards said to Stracke. “You’re going to say you lost two babies? Out of the blue, you say that. We don’t know that!”
Richards also grabbed Stracke’s arm and pointed in her face as she continued to question her story. The episode aired on Bravo in July 2022, days before Richards decided to quit drinking.
On the September 7, 2022 episode of “Watch What Happens Live,” Richards expressed regret for her reaction to Stracke’s personal miscarriage story. “I was overserved. So that’s my disclaimer for the night,” she said.
“I wish I could change a lot of things about that night. It was so bad,” she added. “And looking at it gave me so much anxiety I actually couldn’t watch the show for about five episodes after that because my anxiety was so bad.”
Richards also addressed the situation on her Instagram story, telling fans that she “obviously had a few drinks” and didn’t express herself clearly. “I was disappointed in the way I handled myself altogether,” she admitted.

“One of my goals for 2023 is to take my fitness to the next level,” she wrote on her Instagram story, according to BravoTV.com. The RHOBH star also revealed that her home gym is where she will be spending time for “the foreseeable future.”
Richards’ husband, Mauricio Umansky, told the “Reality With the King” podcast that his wife has diligent with her workout routine.
