Kim Richards Sheds Light On Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills Return Amid Falling Out Between Kathy Hilton And Kyle Richards

One goes out and one comes back. It’s a good thing Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards has sisters. She should probably send both of them a bouquet of fresh flowers on a daily basis for elongating her tenure on the show.

Season 12 of RHOBH was a challenge for everyone from the cast to the viewing audience. Fans were accosted by constant lip-licking and gaslighting. The ladies could barely tolerate each other in a group and Erika Jayne’s lack of empathy for widows and orphans seemed to keep everyone in a dark mood.

Kathy Hilton was brought in to assist Kyle because let’s be frank, Kyle has very little substance without a sibling to boost her storyline. Over the years Kim Richards had been Kyle’s content wingman but left the show to spend time with her growing family and continue her recovery from substance abuse.

During a cast trip to Aspen, Kathy had an alleged meltdown. It may or may not have involved slurs and possibly spewing fire from her mouth. After Kyle took Lisa Rinna’s side in the argument, Kathy and Kyle had a falling out.

Now it appears Kathy isn’t filming Season 13 (yet) and Kyle was left blowing in the wind all alone. Instead of gearing up and standing solo, sister Kim was brought back in. Now Kim is explaining her return in the middle of Kyle and Kathy’s feud.

According to Page Six, Kim wants Kathy and Kyle to repair their relationship. Kyle probably wants Kim on RHOBH to make her seem interesting. Kim said, “I think this whole thing between the sisters was hard.” Hard, yes. Unusual, no. This is because since 2010 Kyle’s “thing” has been sparring with a sister on reality television.

She added, “So I’m hopeful that we’ll be able to put it back together soon.” Humpty Dumpty was hopeful too and we all know what happened to that poor guy. Are we really subjecting viewers to another cyclical romp around the Maypole with Kyle and whatever relative she’s having problems with? Family drama is great, but is there anything else we could hope for? Real Housewives of New Jersey called and said, “excuse me, what’s wrong with neverending issues between siblings?”

Kyle was with Kim at Sutton Stracke’s four-year anniversary party for the Sutton Concept boutique in West Hollywood. She said it “feels great” to have Kim on the show.

“It feels really good,” Kyle continued. “She always reminds me that I’m the baby sister and she checks on me, so it feels really good.” Did it feel good not standing up for Kim when Rinna was on the show? Would Kim be welcomed back if Rinna hadn’t gotten the axe?

“Obviously, we’re a family and we’ve gone through hard times before and we always come back together, so that’s my hope again – to have us all come back together,” Kyle shared. Do they all actually come together or is there a Hilton/Richards prerequisite stating at least one of them has to be mad at the other so life as we know it doesn’t end?

As for Kim, she mentioned she was reluctant to come back to RHOBH after her extended time off. “I took this time off and I wasn’t sure if I wanted to come back at all,” she said. There will be people saying it’s not in Kim’s best interest to film due to her past, but it’s her decision to make.

“I think with everything that’s kind of gone on with my sisters and I’m thinking ‘I need to start getting out,’ I wanted to come in and see my sister and spend a little time with her,” Kim confessed.

Ultimately Kim said it’s a “day by day” process for her and she’ll deal with it as it comes. She recently became a grandma for the third time and doesn’t “want to take away too much time from them.” Kim isn’t the only alum we’ll see this season. Bravo also called in favors to Denise Richards and Camille Grammer. Looks like we’re also possibly gaining one new diamond holder in Annemarie Wiley. Stay tuned to see who else pops up in Season 13.
