While appearing on What What Happens Live on Wednesday, September 30, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star was asked by host Andy Cohen about the Sur owner’s recent claims that Richards was telling other housewives about Jayne’s money problems at Cohen’s baby shower in 2019.
The Halloween actress defended herself, stating in a Vanderpump-like British accent, “Andy, I mean, I would never say something like this, ever.”
Richards then packed a punch, adding, “But one could argue perhaps that maybe her memory is fading along with her relevance. Because she wasn’t even at the baby shower.”
The two — who were both original cast members of the hit reality show since it’s 2010 premiere — had been close pals for years until their infamous dog dispute during season 9 which ended in the restaurateur throwing Richards out of her home, Villa Rosa.
“But I would never say something like that. You can think about that, though, I’m just saying,” the Little House On The Prairie star explained, going on to say that other Housewives had reached out to her via text to say how ridiculous the rumors were.
The Villa Blanca owner responded to the late show appearance, retweeting a video of what Richards had said, along with a fan comment that read, “Doesn’t the saying go that people who are good liars use jokes to deflect? Good job Kyle we believe you did start the rumors.”
Meanwhile, an insider told Page Six that Vanderpump “wasn’t even” at the party, and that “doesn’t seem to add up."
As OK! previously reported, the Vanderpump Dogs owner recently told DailyMail that Richards had loose lips when it came to talking to other people about their co-star’s financial trouble
"It could be the person that [my husband] Ken [Todd] kicked out of my house,” she said when asked who she thought was behind the Beverly Hills gossip. "It didn't surprise me when Camille [Grammar] told me that it was Kyle that had told her the gossip about her supposed friend Erika Jayne."
Vanderpump added bluntly: "That's how Kyle works."
While speaking about her former castmate Jayne and the Pretty Mess author's current legal turmoil, the 61-year-old told the outlet, "Erika Jayne was never nice to me, you know, even prior to this whole thing. I thought it was kind of obnoxious the way she behaved with money, even when I thought it was her own. You know what? I had doubts."
