Who knew this fight would go viral? Well, it is to be expected with the women of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. When Lisa Vanderpump and her husband, Ken Todd, blew up on Kyle Richards as the epic Vanderpump Dogs drama came to a climax on the April 2 episode, aptly titled “The Showdown at Villa Rosa.” LVP’s hubby dismissed the longtime friend with a boisterous “Goodbye Kyle!” that has now become an Internet sensation — thanks to some of the ladies of the cast.
It all started with Kyle, 50, who debuted the comedy of the catchphrase outside the 58-year-old’s West Hollywood restaurant SUR on April 5. “I’m going to have a ‘Goodbye Kyle’ on the rocks,” she yelled jokingly in a video on her Instagram Stories before her friends and even her driver got in on the joke and started throwing the phrase around.

Costar Erika Jayne shared her own version of the challenge in a hilarious vid with her glam and creative teams on April 5 and several ladies left their blessing on the post in the form of encouraging comments — including Dorit Kemsley herself, who is at the center of the Puppygate drama. Her dog was the one that was seemingly dropped off to a kill shelter after being adopted from LVP’s dog charity, which naturally caused a blowup from Lisa. As the season’s progressed, the all-out feud has become one of the biggest in RHOBH history.
Cast member Lisa Rinna, who has also been pretty vocal about her disagreements with Lisa, shared her own version of the challenge, starring her hunky husband, Harry Hamlin. Not gonna lie, each one of these gets a little better than the last.
While the fight that sparked the meme was actually filmed months ago — as is the way with reality TV — because fans and followers finally got to see the blowup in all its glory, we can probably expect to hear this catchphrase for seasons to come.
