We’ve been here before, friends. That time of limbo after another season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has
mercifully ended. Rumors begin to hum about what fantastic, wealthy female will throw her hat into the ring of fire. Since about 2015, Kathy Hilton’s name has been batted around as a possible Housewife. One thing we can probably all agree on is that this show needs a shake-up. Kathy actually passed on the shot to join the first season of RHOBH and suggested her sister, Kyle Richards instead. Thanks so much, Kathy!
RHOBH viewers already know Kathy is the half-sister Kyle and Kim Richards. Viewers also know Kathy and Kyle’s relationship has been a bit…touchy. If Kyle were to write down a list of her fears, sister Kathy would probably be on the top of that list. Right next to heights and Lisa Vanderpump’s swans. There are a lot of skeletons in that family closet and let me tell you, it’s a walk-in with several floors. So while many fans think the show doesn’t need another Richards/Hilton tie, Kathy might be the one person who can give the people what they want. This could get interesting.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is picking up. This will hopefully be the week we transition away from that mom-shaming storyline about “hypocrite” Denise Richards and onto some interesting content courtesy of Brandi Glanville. Seriously, we need it! The only truly exciting visual last week was Kris Jenner, Kathy Hilton, and The Morally Corrupt Faye Resnick sitting all bored on that couch at Kyle Richards’ black and white party.
While Lisa Rinna’s “conversation” with Camille Grammer made for some light entertainment, we need more. I don’t agree with Rinna ruining a decades long relationship with Denise for a TV show, but I do applaud her for going the extra mile for a scene. Whatever you might think about her, I don’t believe she’d force her daughters to appear on RHOBH.
While I’m interested in reading a book “written by” Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Kim Richards, I can’t help feeling like her sisters Kyle Richards and Kathy Hilton are pretty nervous about the tea she’s gonna spill. I mean
whoever actually wrote this book Kim referred to herself as a “whipping post of a sister” in a press release about the book. I cannot help feeling like that’s a direct dig at Kyle.
The book was supposed to be released on April 28, 2020, but now
her sisters her fans will have to wait almost a year to read the book.
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.
Kim Richards is the former Housewife who keeps popping up like the Energizer Bunny. Not the gifted stuffed bunny that she refused to accept from Lisa Rinna for her grandson, however. Kim has reportedly filmed for season 10 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, so it is a safe bet we will see her on when the show returns.
We all know Kim has led a life of drama, which has often been showcased on RHOBH. Issues with alcohol and a few run-ins with the law are just the tip of the iceberg for Kim. The ugly feuds with her sister Kyle Richards were a major storyline when Kim was a Housewife. Last fall, it was announced that Kim was writing her autobiography, which always seems fitting for a former child star. Now, more information is coming out about the book–and it doesn’t look like Kim is holding anything back.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Lisa Rinna and Kim Richards have not always seen eye to eye since being cast members together. Although the two only shared one full season together–season 5–they built up enough mutual animosity to last a lifetime. Kim resented Lisa’s offering up unsolicited advice on her sobriety. Lisa was furious after Kim hinted that she knew scandalous information about hubby Harry Hamlin on the casts’ Amsterdam trip, resulting in Lisa’s epic wine glass breaking tirade.
After Kim left the show, she and Lisa continued to spar when she would pop up as an RHOBH guest. Kim notoriously declining Lisa’s gift of a stuffed bunny for her grandson was one of the many low points in their feud. Lisa continued to meddle in Kim’s sobriety and so on and on and on. Oh, the drama! The two finally called a truce at Kyle Richards’ Halloween bash last season. Although Kim and Lisa are probably not destined to be BFF’s, the civility has seemed to last. Now, the two have a surprising new connection that gives them an added incentive to play nice.
Former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards left the show back in 2015. Since then, Kim has popped up as a guest on most subsequent seasons, including the upcoming season 10. During her stint on the show, it was almost painful to watch Kim at times, as viewers saw her struggle with substance abuse issues and odd family dynamics, especially with her sister Kyle Richards.
Recently, there have been rumblings that Kim has been at work on her autobiography. The first glimmers of this possibility came up when Kim was sued by a ghostwriter in July for $10,000. The case was settled in September with Kim agreeing to pay $5,075. Kim was one of the attendees at BravoCon last weekend and sat in on a Real Housewives OG panel. At the convention, Kim confirmed what we have suspected–she is writing a book.
It could be said, where Housewives go, trouble often follows. Few Housewives have gotten themselves into as many legal pickles as former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards. In April of 2015, Kim was arrested for creating a disturbance at the Beverly Hills Hotel, with charges against her ranging from trespassing to battery on a police officer. In August of the same year, Kim was arrested for shoplifting at a Van Nuys Target. Kim eventually pled guilty in the Beverly Hills case and pled no contest to petty theft in the Target case.
In 2018, Kim settled a dog bite lawsuit with her former stylist. Kim was also sued in a second dog bite case. In her latest legal adventure (as far as we know!), Kim was sued by a ghostwriter for $9,999 in July of this year. The writer, Alison Kingsley Baker, claimed Kim owed her for services rendered. Now, there is an update in the case. And surprise, surprise–the case did not go in Kim’s favor.
