"Imagine if my husband spoke to Lisa the way Ken spoke to me," Kyle said. "We would never hear the end of it."
"Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" stars Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump watched with the rest of America as their once-familial relationship dissipated, all over PuppyGate, on Tuesday's gut-wrenching episode.
In the words of Ken Todd, who was very much involved in the fallout, "Twelve years of friendship -- DONE!" Based on the ladies' reactions to the episode, sadly, it looks like he's right.
"I was actually calm, until I was screamed at," Kyle tweeted after the show. "And imagine if my husband spoke to Lisa the way Ken spoke to me. We would never hear the end of it."

Kyle also retweeted a message that read, "I'm sorry, but Lisa and Ken are being way too over the top. They are willing to throw away a 12-year friendship over a friend coming there to be honest and warn her about what people are saying."
She shared another message, saying, "Kyle is a friend to Lisa."
Lisa took to Twitter, too, explaining she wasn't necessarily "proud" of how she handled her exchange with Kyle.
"I was probably still overly emotional," she wrote. "[It] was the day before my birthday, and life was challenging. Not proud of yelling. But thank [you], Ken." (Throughout the season, Lisa has been grieving the sudden passing of her only brother, who lost his life to suicide in May of last year.)
However, it appears LVP doesn't regret severing ties with her once-BFF because she retweeted fan art which poked fun at Ken's boisterous, "GOODBYE, KYLE!" which we will never be able to un-hear.

Not proud of yelling ..
But thank @kentoddbh
The ladies are contractually obligated to share blog posts after each episode, and we are on pins and needles waiting to see what Kyle and Lisa have to say. So far, only Teddi Mellencamp and Lisa Rinna have shared their thoughts on the episode.
"That the fight between Kyle and LVP was uncomfortable to watch," Teddi wrote. "As you saw, Kyle was anxious and wants to do the best for everyone involved. Kyle went there to be a good friend and with the best intentions in letting LVP know how we all felt and somehow come to a resolution. She didn't deserve such aggression from LVP or Ken, who should not have gotten involved at all nor gotten scarily close to Kyle's face with his finger."
Rinna, on the other hand, kept things sassier and more concise. "A picture is worth a thousand words," she wrote alongside a screenshot of the Radar Online article headline: "Stabbed In The Back! Lisa 'Extra Hurt' By Longtime Friend Dorit Over Abandoned Dog."
Rinna also shared a screenshot of Vanderpump's opening credit with her tagline this season: "You can stab me in the back, but whilst you're there, kiss my ass."
Brandi Glanville, former "RHOBH" star as well as former friend of Lisa and Ken, was also watching the blowup. "All I have to say is both LVP and Ken lost their f--king minds tonight, physically getting in Kyle's face!" she tweeted. "I wound have been swinging! #NotOk #Disgusting."
Considering Brandi's complicated relationship with Kyle over the years, that's saying something.
During the scene in question, Lisa lost her mind over accusations she planted a story with Radar Online and then went to TMZ to refute said story, essentially clearing her name. Kyle kept insisting she was simply trying to deliver to Lisa the general consensus of the other girls, but Lisa wasn't having it.
Ken's been accused of conspiring with his wife to make Dorit Kemsley look bad for having a Vanderpump-adopted dog end up at a different shelter. He, too, was present for the big argument, getting scarily close to Kyle's face as he shouted, "You are supposed to be her f--king friend. You're not her friend! You cannot be her f--king friend when you say something like that. She would never say something like that about you. You're a f--king liar! You're not my friend or her friend, so you get out. Please go. Please go! Go join the gang."
Lisa and Todd eventually kicked Kyle out of their home, and they do not have a relationship with her today.
"The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
