Yolanda Hadid is finished with RHOBH, leaving Erika Girardi in desperate need of a new BFF. She could join forces with new Housewife Dorit Kemsley, but that wouldn't be entertaining enough. Far better to break up the longstanding friendship between Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump, which started to show some signs of wear last season.

Girardi and Richards have been hanging out a lot these days, and while that doesn't necessarily mean that Richards and Vanderpump are over, it is definitely a new dynamic. When was the last time Richards actually got close to a non-Vanderpump cast member? Yes, she's friendly with several of the current Housewives, but I never thought she'd go to bat for the other Housewives like she's done for Vanderpump in the past. Perhaps that's about to change.

Richards' new friendship has been making waves on social media. She and Girardi recently hit up Mykonos, Greece, together, and based on the barrage of Instagram pictures they've posted, they're having a great time. Girardi even was able to get Richards to show off her wild side, as evidenced by a picture taken during a very glamorous (and seductive) looking after-party. In a repost of the same photo, Girardi referred to the two as the #funones, thereby leading to some speculation that Richards and Girardi are on the outs with the rest of the cast.


Richards shared a picture of the behind-the-scenes crew for RHOBH, so chances are, her adventures with Girardi will be featured in a future episode. Unfortunately, we probably won't know for sure what's going on with her and Vanderpump until the new season arrives. For now, all we know is that there are no recent pictures of the two on social media. Instead, Vanderpump's page is littered with pictures of dogs, as per usual.

Vanderpump and Richards might be so close that they have no need to flaunt their friendship on social media, but something just feels off. Regardless of whether Girardi's involved, I anticipate more drama between Richards and Vanderpump this season — because no friendship is safe when Bravo gets involved.
