Lisa Vanderpump Betrayed By Kyle Richards

Posted: Updated:

"Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Lisa Vanderpump feels betrayed by Kyle Richards, a castmate she once counted among her closest friends. However, nothing upsets her more than the fact that she gave Kyle's family $1 million in business just before the fellow housewife formed new alliances.

"When Lisa sold her house for $21 million, she was kind enough to let Kyle and her husband [real estate broker Mauricio Umansky] sell it," a friend of Lisa's tells me. "It was a magnificent 17,000 square foot home that, as you can tell from the show, is absolutely amazing. She could have listed the property with anyone but, as a friend, she wanted to help Kyle out. Lisa would rather give the money to a pal than a stranger. So you can only imagine how she felt when, just a few days later, Kyle turned on her."

During the show's reunion special, not only did Lisa have very unkind words to say about her former friend, she also sat in silence as Adrienne Maloof accused Lisa of selling defamatory stories to the press.

"I feel like I have been taken for a fool," Lisa told me. "Defending them and supporting them in life and in business. It's an ensemble cast and we should all stick together. You can't just apologize and move on after this."

Lisa has yet to be invited back for the show's third season, but told me that she would seriously consider her options first if the invitation does come rolling ins.
