If you saw their catfight on Monday's episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, you wouldn’t be alone in thinking that Kyle Richards really doesn’t like new girl Brandi Glanville.

After some angry four-letter words flew in a very toxic confrontation that we won't dare repeat, Kyle shared her side of the story to Wetpaint Entertainment in an exclusive interview at the Lexus Live on the Plaza party during Los Angeles Food and Wine Festival.

"The last couple of weeks I look like a mean person and I’m not, but you don’t always see everything and it’s hard to explain to people," Kyle told us. "I can say that when I watch it, I think that’s not me.

"It was also at a time when I was really stressed because I was just concerned about my relationship with my sister and we were right in the middle of mending things," she added.

In case you missed it, the blow-up was sparked by Kyle criticizing Brandi's parenting skills after she let her son pee on Adrienne’s lawn during a pool party, and then things escalated when the newbie hurled drug accusations at Kyle's sister, Kim.

"I don’t have anything against Brandi, I think she’s a beautiful girl. I think things are misunderstood about her son going to the bathroom on the grass. I don’t have any sons, but I know that little boys do that," explained Richards, who has since apologized to Brandi.

"There is just a lot of stuff that people don’t see leading up to Brandi coming into the show, amongst all of us girls talking and knowing she is friends with Cedric," she added.

When asked if they are friends now, Kyle answered diplomatically, "I wouldn’t say we’re friends!  I actually don’t have a problem with any of the new girls. I think Dana [Wilkey] is a nice girl. Brandi, I don’t know that well, but I’m sure she’s a nice girl."

One person she isn’t so diplomatic about is Cedric Martinez, Lisa’s former BFF and current arch-enemy.

"The reason Cedric came back on was because Brandi was friends with him, and we all knew that, so we all kind of had our guard up and were skeptical," she explained, adding that we’ve not seen the last of him. "Cedric does rear his head here and there."

As we know from last season, where ever Cedric is there’s sure to be endless delicious drama!
