When Kathryn Edwards first joined The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, I was convinced that she was bound to be the show's next big villain. She just didn't seem very likable, in part because of her tagline ("Don't hate the game, just marry a player") but mainly because she came across as snooty and judgmental. Granted, these are common characteristics on RHOBH, but Edwards initially seemed to take these qualities to a disturbing new level.
Clearly, when I labeled Edwards the show's new villain, I had no idea what I was talking about. Like every Housewife, Edwards can be unlikable at times, but on the whole, she's not that bad. In fact, sometimes, she's downright charming. Tonight was a prime example of this, for, instead of slinging mud, she decided to show a little compassion for a fellow Housewife who has been through a lot. Granted, her empathy for Kim Richards could be viewed as another example of trying to make every situation all about her, but that's not how this particular exchange came across. Rather, Edwards seemed to be lending Richards the support she so desperately needs while still allowing the former RHOBH regular to speak for herself.
#RHOBH Was not a fan of Kathryn at the beginning of the season. Must say I am a big fan now.— Lisa Brennan (@loves_pinot) April 27, 2016
Yo I really thought Kathryn was going to be savage at the reunion, but the fact that she's the peacemaker and the calmest. I love her #RHOBH— Jeff Taylor (@MR_JEFFTAYLOR) April 27, 2016
Kathryn took a while to grow on me, now she seems like the most down to earth, compassionate HW #RHOBH— Merry Bones (@shrewgoddess) April 27, 2016
