It’s been years since we saw sisters Kim Richards and Kyle Richards on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. There were a few Kim cameos on the show but Kim just sort of disappeared into her own private life off the small screen. She did run into some trouble for a few years but for the most part, Kim seems to be doing pretty well.
Aside from plenty of past ups and downs, Kim and Kyle seem to be in a good place (for now) but who could forget the iconic moment in season one with the infamous limo fight and Kim accusing Kyle of stealing her “goddamn house”. That was quite possibly one of the best moments that housewives has given us across any franchise. Just the idea of two sisters so at war that it completely explodes on camera is what reality TV dreams are made of. Once that happened, it started us all on a seasons long journey of the trouble relationship between the two. Sometimes it was hard to watch, but I think we have all wanted to believe that time has healed all wounds and the Kim and Kyle have come back together as family.
That doesn’t mean that they have come together on ALL aspects of their relationship. According to People, Kyle didn’t even know Kim was writing a tell-all book, “I didn’t really know about the book,” Kyle admitted. “I mean, she started saying she was working on, you know, something and I didn’t really — I don’t really know a lot about it. All I know is we’re in a good place, so hopefully we’re going to stay there.” Kyle also says the same about her relationship with sister Kathy Hilton, “Let’s hope we stay at that!” she said. “Let’s hope it just stays there. That’s all I keep saying.”
Despite everything seemingly being honky dory, a post by the book’s publisher HarperCollins, Kim “speaks her mind and tells her truth in this blazingly honest memoir,” and goes as far to describe Kim as “a whipping post as a sister,” which Kyle claims took both her and Kim by surprise. The post has since been taken down.

Kyle says of Kim, “She was a little taken aback, too,” Kyle explained. “So I don’t know. I don’t want to speak for Kathy or Kim.” Either way, Kyle does want to read the book, saying, “I’m going to have to read it,” she said. “I’m very curious, actually.”
Kyle has reason to be curious. She also spoke to Us Weekly recently and told them, “Nothing’s been run by me. I don’t know what to think. You know, I knew she was writing it because we talked about it a little bit but not specifics.”
Kyle also describes the synopsis as catching her off guard, “I mean the headline was a little jarring. I was like, ‘What’s that?'” I guess Kim calling herself a “whipping post of a sister” might not sit right with Kyle, especially since she thinks all is well in sister-land.
Either way, Kim is not holding back and ready to tell the world her side of the story, no matter what Kyle has to say about it. I say, good for her.
