"I wish the best for Kim, I do want to say that," added The Real Housewives star Taylor Armstrong, who also feuded with Kim during the season's production.
"And we get along more one-on-one. Put us in a group and it turns into some odd dynamic with our personalities and we just start to clash. But when we're alone, we're actually really good together."
