In a sneak peek at next week’s Season 5 finale episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Kyle Richards is seen going head to head with Lisa Rinna. Although the two women have been close friends for years, the ongoing tension with Kyle’s sister, Kim, appears to have led to drama between them.
In the March 18 sneak peek, shared by Bravo TV, Kyle and Rinna are attending a party in honor of a new product sponsored by Adrienne Maloof. While chatting in a booth at the event, Kyle and Rinna get into a heated discussion regarding Kim.
“Why should I have to confirm that to your sister, Kyle?” Rinna asks.
As they sat chatting in the sneak peek, Kyle had requested Rinna verify that Brandi Glanville told her Kim needed an intervention. During the episode prior, Kyle and Kim were seen discussing Glanville’s relationship with Kim, when Kyle dropped a bomb, claiming Glanville had been talking behind her back. Now, after telling Kim the news, Kyle was looking for Rinna to back up her story.
Unfortunately, as the sneak peek revealed, Rinna wasn’t willing.
“I get it. I get why Kyle needs this — because her sister is so f—ed up. I’m just… I won’t go there. I’m being real stubborn about it.”
“I think that Kim’s going to believe whatever she’s going to believe,” Rinna explained to Kyle. “Why does she need to be validated again? That’s my question. Why? The last thing I want to do with anything is talk to Kim Richards about anything that has to do with sobriety, intervention and everything that was said.”
Rinna went on to explain in the sneak peek that she was in a “lose, lose situation” when it came to being stuck in the middle of Kyle and Kim’s issues with Glanville.
“We all saw Brandi tell me how there is so much more going on than I know surrounding the topic I no longer want to speak of. We all saw Brandi suggest to me that an intervention be planned for our group while we spoke of Kim. We all saw Brandi tell me that Kim would murder her and then kill herself if she knew that Brandi was talking about ‘her situation.’”
