The sisterly duo of Kyle Richards and Kathy Hilton has provided some very necessary comedic relief during this season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Just during the most recent episode, the Erika Jayne saga was broken up by clips of Kathy forgetting her purse at home and making Doogie (aka Kyle) call “The Lady” to bring it to her. Hilarious. And as Kyle’s made evident this season, it’s nice to see the two goof around after having so many rough patches in their relationship.
But let’s be clear — Kyle and Kim Richards walked so Kyle and Kathy could run. Kyle and Kim are OGs of RHOBH and their story has so many iconic moments. Kim’s sobriety journey. Kyle and Kim’s limo feud. Even in recent seasons, when Kim and her snatched ponytail joined Brandi Glanville to drop the bomb about the alleged Denise Richards hookup. Kim’s an OG and should be recognized as such.
And while many RHOBH fans (myself included) would love to see the three sisters interact on the show together, it seems about as likely as Kim’s tell-all book ever getting to see the light of day. Radar Online recently asked Kim if she’d ever return to the show. Kim didn’t hold her breath — “probably not,” she responded. What a shame.
Kim’s journey on reality TV was evidently very rough. The ins and outs of her personal life have been put on display for everyone to judge. And it likely didn’t make her family dynamics any easier to have them filmed all day. So it’s not shocking she’s not itching for a comeback. But Kim, at her heart, is as goofy and fun as Kathy. I’d love to see the two of them make Kim’s famous chicken salad and howl with their dogs. While they both rag on Kyle and play pranks on her and her fancy friends. That’d be a Bravo dream come true.
While Kim’s apparently not rushing to sign a RHOBH contract anytime soon, her iconic moments from the show live on. Even in the most recent episode, Kyle paid homage to her sister by telling Lisa Rinna to eat a piece of bread and calm down. There’d be no RHOBH without the early days of Kim and Kyle. And despite how you feel about them now, they should be respected for that.
TELL US – ARE YOU SAD TO HEAR THAT KIM ISN’T ANTICIPATING A RETURN TO RHOBH? ARE YOU SURPRISED SHE DOESN’T WANT TO JOIN THE SHOW WITH HER SISTERS?
