After spending the day with Lisa Vanderpump in Season 3, Episode 16, Kim took a nap in her room. Both Kyle Richards and Yolanda Foster were nervous when it took a while knocking on the hotel room door to rouse her.
“I was being light-hearted,” Lisa explained, after joking that she wanted to take the ladies to a French cooking class to get Kim out of her room. The blond housewife took offense and stayed in the car, crying to her sister. Kyle explained to Lisa that Kim’s history with alcohol makes people jump to conclusions. “When you have that history, people immediately go there and think that,” said Kyle.
Later at dinner, Lisa brought it up to Kyle’s husband, Mauricio, as Kim sat a few seats away. “It’s disrespectful,” said Yolanda in her interview, saying that Lisa was annoying her by talking about Kim right in front of her.
Kim was still upset the next day, calling Lisa’s concern “fake and phony.”
Did Lisa take her joking too far? Should she have been more understanding of Kim’s recent stint in rehab, or was the witty Brit just trying to lighten the mood?
