"I am a devoted sister-in-law," continued Richie, who is married to Benji's twin brother Joel Madden. "I'm happy for anyone who is happy, and I want everyone to be surrounded with love."

Continuing on the theme, show host Andy Cohen asked 32-year-old Richie if she was the one who had set the new couple up.

"Yes," she answered. "I'm going to take responsibility for everything!"
