...even though she stars in it.

She is the one holding an emotional Taylor Armstrong back from getting at the incredulous Smudge.

But Kyle Richards admits she doesn't have a clue what the "Woman Yelling At Cat" meme is all about.

"I have no idea what it is or what it means," she conceded while out to lunch in Los Angeles on Monday. "I don't get it."

"Can you explain to me what it means? Because I would like to be enlightened."

Her "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" co-star Lisa Rinna was equally flummoxed, adding: "I don't understand that."

The famous juxtaposition features two images: One is a screen-grab from a season 2 episode of "RHOBH" all the way back in 2011, in which a crying Armstrong lashes out at an unseen Dedra DD Whitt in a fiery beachhouse fight.

The second features Smudge the Cat, refusing to eat his vegetables.

According to KnowYourMeme, the two pictures enjoyed moderate internet usage alone; but it wasn't until they were brought together on May 1st 2019, by Twitter user @MISSINGEGIRL, that a bona fide classic meme was born.

The composite image is generally used to convey an overreaction, with the cat occasionally antagonizing.

While she didn't quite understand the phenomenon, Kyle certainly remembered the original incident the picture was taken from; Whitt, upset at the animosity between her friend Camille Grammer and Armstrong, tries to call her out. Armstrong does not take it well.

In the clip, Kyle accepts that too much wine has been poured on the situation; indeed she and Brandi Glanville even look close to exchanging slaps at one stage.

"I'm meme famous! What can I say?" Kyle laughed on Monday. "I don't know what the heck happened."

The reality star even joked fans might get to see a recreation of the scene in the upcoming season 10 of "RHOBH".

Meanwhile, Taylor Armstrong herself commented on the meme in a recent exchange on Twitter, which you can read below.
