Kyle Richards accused Dorit Kemsley of fueling speculation about her personal life, including her rumored relationship with country singer Morgan Wade.

During part one of Wednesday’s Season 13 “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” reunion, the Bravolebrity placed the blame on her longtime pal.

In particular, the mom of two, 47, said she was apprehensive about seeing the “Halloween” actress after the pair had not spoken for “a couple of months.”

Kemsley spoke about the “manipulative” text she received from Richards the day before the reunion, claiming it was an attempt to “silence” her.

“It was so manipulative, it was so calculated,” Kemsley said before letting Erika read the text aloud to the others.

Kemsley then confronted the mom of four about her comments, saying her remarks about the pair’s fractured friendship “stung” her.

“I said that in response to all of the stuff you had been saying throughout the season,” Richards responded.

When asked to give an example, Richards said she didn’t appreciate Kemsley bringing up her marriage woes with Mauricio Umansky on camera “when we are good friends.”

What’s more, Richards expressed her disdain over Kemsley claiming that she had been replaced by Wade.

“That doesn’t mean you are not very important to me, I love you very much,” Richards said, noting how Kemsley’s “exaggeration” was made at “my expense.”

“You knew that by saying something like that, it was going to create a bigger problem for me in the media with the whole Morgan situation,” she added, referencing romance rumors surrounding the pair.

In response, Kemsley said that the rumors about the pair’s alleged romance were already out there before her comments.

“I know your nature, if I say something that upsets you, you’re a punisher, you’ll shut me out,” Kemsley said of the “manipulative” text. “We hadn’t spoken in a couple months and all of the sudden you text me the day before the reunion, do you really think I’m an idiot?”

The “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” reunion part two airs March 6 at 8 p.m. on Bravo.
