Kyle Richards is asking fans to respect the new owner of the former home
Kyle Richards sent a virtual cease and desist letter to Bravo fans who criticized the new owner of her former mansion.
Entrepreneur Amanda Francis — who purchased her Bel Air, California, home in January 2022 — shared a screenshot of an Instagram direct message between her and the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star on Tuesday to prove there was “no beef” between them after following her. Gut regeneration, which sparked an onslaught of messages from viewers.
“Hey. If you’re a Bravo fan and feel the need to DM me or tag me on my birthday regarding the house that used to belong to Kyle Richards and is now mine, please reference this message,” Frances captioned the screenshot.
The message in question showed Frances, 38, thanking Richards, 54, for “moving” her “family home”.
In response, Courage praised the “beautiful job” done by the self-described “thought leader” on the renovations and wished her a life full of “beautiful memories.”
“No beef,” Frances added in her caption. “My retaliation is not a personal attack. Enough already.”
Richards — who was busy appearing “very intimate” with country singer Morgan Wade in Paris amid her split from husband Mauricio Umansky — retweeted Frances’ story and added, “I realize some people feel ‘attached’ to this house to see it like this. So many years on RHOBH but Please be respectful.
“This is their home now and they did a great job renovating it,” she added.
Can’t get enough of “The Real Housewives?”
Richards and Umansky, 53, sold their Bel Air estate for $6.1 million to Frances, whose former home was featured in Season 4 of Selling Sunset, after being on the market for more than four years.
The self-made millionaire detailed her long-term renovation on her Instagram, at one point describing the redesigned “Unicorn Princess Suite” — her daughter’s bedroom — as her favorite space.
Despite the innocuous content, Frances found herself deleting several “hurtful” comments from Richards’ fans.
“Quick note: Trying to stir up controversy by tagging the previous owner of this home and leaving harsh comments about my family and I will not be tolerated,” she wrote.
“I’ve had enough without that kind of silliness. I’m sure this also applies to the previous owners. Thank you for refraining from foolish behavior. Have a really nice day.”
