RHOBH’s Erika Jayne leaked information about Kathy Hilton to the press. Kyle Richards’ reaction to the drama is making fans think she’s a hypocrite.
At The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 12 reunion, Erika Jayne was accused of leaking information to the press, but many fans are focusing on Kyle Richards instead. Erika spilled the beans about Kathy Hilton’s behavior during the Aspen vacation, and fans were eager to see what Kyle would have to say when she heard the claims made about her sister. Kathy and Kyle may be related, but there is bad blood between the two, as they have been feuding on RHOBH.
Erika told the press that Kathy used an offensive gay slur when she was not able to request a song during a night out. Fans felt that Erika threw Kathy under the bus, so she would look better, and some still believe that Erika made the entire situation up. Many fans have compared it to “puppygate,” which is another prime example of RHOBH cast members leaking information to the press. Fans noticed how Kyle reacted differently to Lisa Vanderpump leaking stories, and Erika doing the same thing, leading many to call her a hypocrite.
Kyle Overreacts To Lisa & “Underreacts” To Erika
In The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 9, one of the major storylines came from Lisa giving reporters information about the show. Dorit Kemsley adopted a dog from The Vanderpump Dog Foundation, but after deciding that she could not take care of the pup, she gave her away. The family that picked her up took her to a kill shelter, and Lisa leaked that news to the press. Kyle was furious with Lisa for going behind the housewives’ backs by sharing the story with the public, and it ruined their friendship. Many fans are comparing it to how Erika recently leaked the situation with Kathy to the press.
RHOBH fans expected Kyle to have an equally strong reaction to Erika, especially since the rumors she was spreading were about her sister. Kyle did defend Kathy by saying that she never heard her utter any slurs that night. She did make it clear that it may have been Erika’s publicist who sold the story. However, when Lisa Rinna and Erika were throwing accusations at Kathy throughout the reunion, many fans felt that Kyle did not stick up for Kathy enough. They were surprised that Kyle did not have a stronger reaction to Erika leaking the story, like she did with Lisa Vanderpump, as they appear to still be friends.
Kyle and Kathy’s feud on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has a pattern of Kathy feeling that Kyle does not stand up for her enough. Kathy is often pitted against Lisa Rinna and Erika, and the Aspen trip solidified that. Not only did Erika share her claims, but Lisa Rinna said that Kathy had a tantrum, and vowed to ruin Kyle and the other housewives. Fans are eager to see where Kyle and Kathy go from here, and how their relationship will look on the next season of the show.
