From critical lunchtime convos with Crystal Kung-Minkoff to the jaw-dropping discussion she had with Sutton Stracke and 'RHOBH' newcomer Diana Jenkins while the trio was hanging out at Garcelle Beauvais' 55th birthday bash, Richards, 53, is now making sure she is giving the public the complete picture amidst all of the noise!

Most recently Richards has received lots of heat for her reaction toward Erika Jayne's inebriated storm of comments toward Beauvais' teenage son during her now-infamous birthday party. Richards and her man Mauricio Umansky were dishing about the situation with her castmate Dorit Kemsley and her husband PK.

Richards laughed while she was telling the story, and Umansky added, "It's great that [Jayne] did that."

Jayne had told Beauvais' son Jax to "f--k off" after he had entered the room where she and Kemsley had been hanging out together.

Jax's mother did not take kindly to Jayne's reaction, addressing the situation on Twitter, writing, "Nope, never saw this scene until now."

Richards Responds To The Critics

The Umanksky's fun couch-side chat with the Kemsleys would soon inspire an ONSLAUGHT of feedback on social media, especially toward Mr. and Mrs. Umansky's reaction toward the situation.

The Blast recently covered Richards' response to her critics. She attempted to clarify the reason for her laughter, explaining, "I was laughing at a friend's drunken, ridiculous behavior, NOT about disrespecting someone's child. I think you know me better by now...," referencing her OG legacy in 'Housewives' history.

All Apologies: Richards Apologizes To Her Co-Star

Richards, who has been an 'RHOBH' cast member since the series premiere 12 years ago, knows a thing or two about making apologies! She was also quick to check in with Beauvais and mend any potential hard feelings.

Earlier today Richards commented on her friendship status with Beauvais. According to E!, She addressed the situation during a live stream with Amazon, revealing she and her husband had made an effort with an apology.

"My husband and I both, of course, apologized to Garcelle. "I didn't put this in my Instagram Stories when I was explaining it, because honestly when I apologized it was genuine."

Richards was referring to her initial attempt to clear the air over the situation on social media.

"I felt like it was personal between us, and I didn't want to do that and go tell everybody, because it was for Garcelle. But I'm saying it now because people think I didn't apologize to her, but my husband and I did immediately."

How Richards Is Navigating The Aftermath

Navigating a difficult situation as a Housewife has definitely been a reoccurring aspect of her career, but taking stock of how she feels during the aftermath has been more of a rare occurrence.

Richards took a candid approach when she revealed how "terrible" she felt while rewatching the controversial scene.

She revealed, "I had to disconnect from [watching the show] for a bit," adding, "That's why I don't wanna watch the show right now, personally, because I never, ever, ever should've commented on something I didn't see."

Beauvais has yet to address Richards' apology or discuss the current state of their friendship.
