Kyle Richards Thinks It Was ‘Strange’ And ‘Frustrating’ How Denise Richards Handled The Brandi Glanville Drama On RHOBH!

Kyle Richards explains why she doesn't approve how Denise Richards handled herself on the current tenth season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. "I feel like when it got hot in the kitchen, she left," Kyle told Entertainment Tonight. "Her kind of walking off and not wanting to participate didn't really sit well with the rest of us who show up every day."

"I get frustrated when people don't show up, because that's what we signed up for," she says. "There were so many times where I would have loved to not show up, and so many people I would have loved to not be around at the time, but I never once have done that in 10 years. It was a little frustrating to me."

Denise Richards will find herself at the center of the drama this season as allegations of an extramarital affair between her and Brandi Glanville circulated in the group and the tabloids. Denise has vehemently denied the claims. A teaser was revealed at the end of the premiere episode of the current season that Denise stopped filming with the rest of the cast to avoid talking about the allegations and also seemingly issued cease and desist letters to try and shut it down.

"Just like last year, right out of the gate the whole 'puppy-gate' thing happened, and this season was no different," Kyle says. "Something came up and, obviously, this show is documenting what's going on in our lives and the thing you don't want talked about the most, is definitely going to be talked about."

"Obviously, when you first hear something like that [about a] married woman, it's salacious," she told Entertainment Tonight. "Oh my gosh. But it's also someone's life and it's like, oh God. Once something is out there, it's out there. I know what it feels like to have something out there about yourself, or your family, and it's painful. It's difficult."

Still, Kyle said she would have preferred to see Denise face the allegations head-on, rather than avoid it.

"It was really strange to me," Kyle said. "After a decade of doing this show, we've had so many things that have been really difficult. The stuff that happened between my sister [Kim] and me. And I mean, what Taylor Armstrong went through, Camille [Grammer] -- everybody -- and nobody ever walked away."

"I didn't even think that was an option, because we're here documenting our lives and that's what we signed up for," she continued. "So, I was a little taken aback. Like, this is what you signed up for and, unfortunately, it's hard, but it's not just all fun and going to parties."

"You can't just pick and choose what you want to show," Kyle adds. "Otherwise, we wouldn't be on the air still. We're documenting our lives. The good, the bad and the ugly."

Kyle says she found Denise’s way of handling the situation confusing, because last season, Denise was an open book.

"But you just never know when it's not on your terms," she says. "[What] happens often with a second season Housewife is, they'll kind of see what people didn't like or got upset about and they may kind of, like, sort of try to censor themselves and it's just, that doesn't always work. So, you know, I think that she was like, ‘Uh oh. Maybe I went too far with talking about that the happy endings and all that stuff.'"

"I think a lot of people are kind of naive coming into this," Kyle notes. "I remember Denise's first season, she was asking where craft services was and I was, like, ‘Honey, this is a reality show. There is no craft services.’ So, yeah, it's definitely kind of shocking when you join the show."

Kyle says, for now, she’s not sure if Denise will return to the show, but admits that she would "love to see her continue."

"Now with that said, not everybody can handle it," she adds.
