Even though Kim Richards isn’t a cast member on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills anymore, fans usually expect at least one cameo appearance every season. This makes sense since her sister Kyle Richards is still holding a diamond after all these years.
Last season was a tough one for Kyle. Kim’s cameo appearances did nothing to soften the blow of feuding with Lisa Vanderpump and getting kicked out of Villa Rosa. Ken Todd (infamously) said “goodbye, Kyle” and so did the LVP fans, who are very vocal on Twitter. In an exclusive interview with Reality Tea from BravoCon, Kim talked about how tough it was to watch Kyle and Lisa’s falling out.
Kim told us, “Any time I watch my sister cry, I get totally choked up. Writing my book recently, I realized that she’s my baby. She’s my baby before I had my babies.” That is really so sweet.
Still, Kim acknowledged that their dynamic has changed a lot throughout the years. Kim remarked, “She’s treated me like the baby for a while, but she needs to remember that she’s the baby.”
Kim reflected, “Writing my book took me back and I thought about how I took her everywhere. I had one friend I would play with as a kid and whenever she invited me over, I would say ‘I’m not coming unless my sister does too.’” Awww.
Kim told us it was “very hard” to watch Kyle and Lisa’s friendship fall apart last season. She admitted, “I just hope they make up.”
Looking back on the drama, Kim said, “I feel like maybe there was a little pressure from the other girls.” Probably. Kyle was LVP’s sole link to the group at one point. There was probably a lot of anti-LVP pressure coming her way.
Kim continued, “I wish they would make up because they were besties for so long. There’s a love in there that just doesn’t go away.”

Maybe Kim will be the one to bring the two friends back together. More than anyone, Kim understands what it’s like to feud and make up with Kyle. Could she be the peace maker here? Only time will tell.
TELL US- ARE YOU SURPRISED THAT KIM WANTS KYLE & LISA TO MAKE UP? DO YOU THINK KYLE FELT PRESSURE FROM THE OTHER HOUSEWIVES TO CONFRONT LVP?
