Heavy/Bravo Kyle Richards responds to Lisa Vanderpump’s comments.
Kyle Richards said she “appreciated” the nice things her former best friend Lisa Vanderpump said about her at BravoCon 2023.
“I really appreciated her words. That was very, very nice of her,” Richards told Page Six. “Lisa also had a long and successful marriage,” she continued. “I still consider Mauricio and my marriage to be a successful marriage. And even with the way we’re dealing with it now, I feel like we’re doing it as right as we can,” she added.
Richards’ comments come after Vanderpump was asked about Richards’ split from Mauricio Umansky.
“I know there was a lot of love between them. That really existed, and probably still exists,” Vanderpump said. “That’s why I think it makes me sad to see someone who’s been together for so long [break up] because marriage is hard. And I hope that they can get through this to some extent and make it easier in some way [solution]you know,” she added.

Lisa Vanderpump said there have been “rumors” about Kyle Richards and Mauricio Umansky
In addition to her chat with Page Six, Vanderpump also spoke about Richards during an interview with Access Hollywood.
“I think there were a lot of rumors for a long time. And there were things I knew and had heard. But I think everyone is sorry. But you know, it’s not over until it’s over. People go through things and hope they can figure it out,” Vanderpump said.
“I’m sure you know, when you have four kids and the love that they had between them, you know that maybe they can just sit down and realize…” Vanderpump added.
Although Richards and Umansky have been adamant that they are going through a difficult time in their marriage, Richards actually referred to their split as a “divorce” for the first time at BravoCon.
“I’ve been through a lot in the last year that changes you. Losing my best friend to suicide changed me. The divorce has strengthened me, but you as a person definitely change. I feel good,” she told Too Fab. Richards didn’t correct himself or
Kyle Richards said she is open to reconciling with Lisa Vanderpump
On the November 4, 2023 episode of the Two Ts in a Pod podcast, Richards said that she is not one to hold a grudge. She said she would be willing to settle her feud with Vanderpump — if Vanderpump would make the first move.
When Richards was asked who she wasn’t looking forward to seeing at BravoCon, she said Vanderpump. “We don’t see each other and of course we don’t speak,” Richards told Mellencamp.
Mellencamp then asked Richards if there was “ever a chance for reconciliation” between her and Vanderpump. “If she came up to me and said something nice and gave me a hug or something, I’d be the type of person to just say ‘forget,'” Richards replied.
She admitted that Vanderpump is “not that guy,” so this situation probably won’t happen.
