Lisa Vanderpump and Kyle Richards have had their ups and downs, but at the end of the day, they are the closest friends on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills… or are they? Their entire friendship was called into question during tonight’s episode, with the other Housewives accusing Vanderpump of being an awful friend — and accusing Richards of being a doormat.
The drama was sparked by (what else?) the Munchausen syndrome debacle, which evidently involved Vanderpump stating something about dragging Richards into the never-ending Munchausen mess. Richards admitted that Vanderpump’s behavior seemed shady, but she was not willing to attack her friend. The other Housewives seemed very bothered by this, especially Eileen Davidson, who stormed away from the already awkward dinner.
Yes, Richards and Vanderpump’s friendship is odd, but ultimately, how they choose to interact is their business. The other Housewives have more than enough to bicker about; why are they so fixated on Richards’ decision to protect her friendship?
Interestingly enough, the only Housewife willing to give Richards and Vanderpump the space they needed to work things out was Kathryn Edwards, who, until now, has received a ton of social media hate from critics, many of whom decry her seemingly snobbish attitude. But tonight, Edwards made a good point: Who cares whether Richards lets Vanderpump throw her under the bus? She’s an adult and she can choose who she wants for a BFF. Edwards did her best to stay out of this particular skirmish and, later, she shared her viewpoint on Twitter.
Why can't Kyle and Lisa V have whatever type of friendship they want? It doesn't concern me. #rhobh

I kind of wish they would leave Kyle alone. If it's not a bother to her, then your case is mute. #RHOBH

So over this season long argument,if Kyle doesn't care then that is her decision. Who cares. No more energy needs to be wasted on it. #RHOBH
