Reza Farahan is ready for Kyle Richards to move on from “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” — but she has other plans.

The “Shahs of Sunset” alum didn’t hold back Sunday when Andy Cohen asked him on “Watch What Happens Live” to name the “most overrated” star of the “Real Housewives” franchise.

“This is going to get me in a lot of trouble, so I’m sorry in advance,” Farahan, 49, prefaced his answer, “but Kyle Richards. Sorry, Kyle.”

The real estate agent then shared his idea for the “Halloween” actress’ replacement: former “RHOBH” cast member Lisa Vanderpump, with whom Richards has feuded for years.

“Ding dong, I want her to come back,” he joked, referencing Vanderpump’s shady tweet after nemesis Lisa Rinna quit the show earlier this month. “I want to know what’s going on in her life.”

Richards, 54, took to the comments section of an Instagram post Monday to slam Farahan.

“Wasn’t his show cancelled? And wasn’t he the first one voted off on Traitors?” she wrote. “I can’t even be offended.”

The “RHOBH” star said she wasn’t “offended” by the “Shahs of Sunset” alum’s opinion.

And yet, many fans still sided with Farahan, calling the “Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip” alum “boring.”

“I agree and to me her storyline [is] like boring, I guess that’s why she has to resort to instigating,” one user commented. “He[r] storyline for years has been Kim [Richards], then it was Kathy [Hilton]…she has always lacked a story.”

“Yes! Give me LVP over Kyle any day of the week ❤️,” another fan chimed in.

Others, however, took Richards’ side, noting that she is the face of the show as the only “RHOBH” star to appear in all 12 seasons so far.

“Kyle is Beverly Hills and no one can take that from her, even these LVP Stan’s sorry… Kyle is the Original OG,” one person wrote.

“Thoughts are that Reza is trying to stay relevant and be a shade assassin but his attempts are beyond cringe!” another commented.

The back-and-forth comes after the end of a very tumultuous Season 12 and subsequent cast changes.

Lisa Rinna and Diana Jenkins both announced earlier this month that they will not be returning to “RHOBH.”

While Jenkins, 50, cited her “high risk” pregnancy as the reason for her departure, Rinna, 59, claimed she “f–king hated” her final season due to her feud with Kathy Hilton — and the backlash that came along with it.

Since neither of the ladies’ replacements have been announced yet, only time will tell if Farahan will get his wish.
