Team Brandi or Team Lisa?
As the feud between Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars Brandi Glanville and Lisa Vanderpump rages on, co-star Kyle Richards exclusively tells RadarOnline.com she's not taking teams, but has grown closer to Glanville.
"The Lisa/Brandi fight isn't just something between the two of them," Richards told Radar at The Abbey's 8th Annual Christmas in September charity event she hosted on Tuesday night.
"It involves everyone in the cast…there is so much more to it. But let's just say I've grown closer to Brandi. It's no secret that Lisa and I have had our issues in the past."
"Brandi revealed that Lisa had told her to take magazine articles about Kyle Richards' hubby Mauricio Umansky cheating on her on a trip the ladies took several weeks earlier to Palm Springs," the insider revealed.
"Brandi told Lisa, ‘Don’t you dare try to lie about this one, there is no way you are going to weasel out of this one.’ Needless to say, Lisa was absolutely floored and couldn’t believe Brandi had turned on her!"
Flanked by hubby Umansky on Tuesday night at The Abbey, Richards told Radar she's "fiercely protective" of her family.
"I'm fiercely protective of my family, and only then would I leave the show," Richards said when asked if she will stick with the Housewives franchise.
"I don't need the money. I do this for fun."
Speaking of family, Richards tells Radar her sister Kim is doing well with her newfound sobriety.
"Kim is doing well…still sober, knock on wood," Kyle said.
"I'm more passionate about this upcoming season than others, there's a lot of emotional stuff."
