Kyle Richards reportedly loves being called the new "queen" of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, after working hard to get rid of the show's OG and queen - Lisa Vanderpump.

"Kyle is really enjoying being called the 'queen' now that Lisa is no longer on the RHOBH," a source told HollywoodLife. 

"But it still makes Kyle sad that she and Lisa aren't in a better place with their friendship and she never would have imagined them not speaking like this. At the same time, Kyle is happy that the show is doing really well and that she's getting along wonderfully with the other ladies."

The show may be doing well, but that may be due to LVP's storyline (which continued even after she stopped filming) and Camille Grammer bringing the drama with both Dorit Kemsley and Teddi Mellencamp.

Somehow, she feels she will rekindle her friendship with LVP:

"Kyle felt disappointed that Lisa didn't come to the reunion which would have given her the opportunity to at least talk some things out with the other women. She does feel like their friendship will eventually rekindle itself once Lisa's been gone from the housewives for a while and they can hopefully be civil and even friends again."
