Has housewife Kim Richards been brainwashed by her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills co-star, Brandi Glanville?
According to Life & Style's March 3 issue, Richards' sister, Kyle, believes Glanville has turned Richards against her, convincing her that Kyle doesn't have her best interest at heart.
"Kyle thinks Brandi has completely brainwashed Kim," a source told the magazine, via a February 22 report by Classicalite.
"Brandi actually made Kim believe Kyle is a bad person. Kim turned her back on Kyle's help, telling her she hadn't been there for her like Brandi had been...She destroyed their relationship."In a deleted scene from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, as reported by the Inquisitr, Glanville was seen sitting down with housewife Kim Richards, claiming Kyle has been manipulating her for years, and suggesting she distance herself from her.
"[Kyle] knows how to manipulate you. She's been doing this for years."After Richards begins to fight back, Glanville cuts her off, insisting that Kyle takes advantage of her because she knows she'll put up with it.
"She does, she'll like… It's almost like a relationship where you break up to make up, break up to make up, because she knows you're not going anywhere. She doesn't protect you."At that point, housewife Kim Richards cuts off Glanville once again, claiming Kyle has protected her in the past. Still, Glanville continued her rant, alleging the sisters' relationship was unhealthy, and encouraging Richards to take a break from the relationship.
"The point is, you can distance yourself from her. You can make her have respect for you. I am a good friend. I will protect you. I will."Although Glanville claims she isn't in the middle of the relationship, it has certainly seemed like she is during several episodes of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. During poker night at Eileen Davidson's house, Glanville was seen escorting Richards out of the party, and shielding her from her sister, Kyle. She even got physical with Kyle when she attempted to reach Richards.
In another episode, Glanville showed up to Kyle's gay mixer, and she and Kyle began feuding over their relationships with Richards.
Sadly, Richards has done nothing, aside from her deleted scene comments, to defend her sister against Glanville's claims, which has been understandable frustrating for the Beverly Hills boutique owner.
