On Friday, Kyle Richards celebrated National Sibling Day by sending her sisters, Kim Richards and Kathy Hilton, a sweet and strong message. Kyle tweeted that Kathy and Kim are her “sisters no matter what.” The accompanying photo shows all three sisters during happier times. The photos shows all three smiling as they lean in close to one another, with Kyle and Kim even holding hands. So far, it seems that neither Kim nor Kathy have publicly responded to Kyle’s post.
The “sisters no matter what” wording is obviously in reference to what has played out on Season 5 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Viewers have watched Kyle and Kim’s relationship, which has had its up and downs through the years, deteriorate even more, due to Kim feeling as if Kyle doesn’t have her back and Kyle feeling that Kim’s actions, especially towards the other housewives, are indefensible. At the beginning of part 1 of the Season 5 reunion show, which filmed in late February, it was revealed that Kyle and Kim have not spoken for months. Part 2, which aired on Tuesday, ended with Kyle sobbing and gasping as she accused Kim of being so vindictive that she would disinvite her to her daughter’s second wedding.
“Right, so you can disinvite me to your daughter’s wedding? That’s fine. I don’t need to be there…I don’t need to be there. And the only reason I’ve ever tried to fix things with you when you’ve been so mean to me is because I love your children like I love my own and I want to be able to have them in my life. I don’t need to go! I was there at the other wedding. I’m happy to support her and love her and all of your children. I’ll always be there for them. But you want to take them from me too? Do that! You’re so f**cking mean! [Gasping] Leave me alone!”
While Kathy Hilton is not a cast member of the show, she has made a few appearances alongside Kim Richards and Kyle Richards this past season. Her name has also been brought up amid the drama between Kim and Kyle, with Kim, backed by Brandi Glanville, claiming that Kathy disapproves of the way that Kyle treats her and wouldn’t behave in the same way. On part 2 of the reunion, when the topic of the disastrous Amsterdam group dinner came up, Kim said that Kathy watched the scene and didn’t like how Kyle just ran off after Lisa lunged at and threw a wine glass at her. Kyle countered that she just couldn’t defend Kim at that moment.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, after the reunion filmed, Kyle claimed that she didn’t leave her bed for days after the reunion because the experience was so upsetting.
“The reunion was worse than Amsterdam. I didn’t leave my bed for two days after the reunion. I couldn’t go anywhere. It was just so upsetting.”
A preview for the third and final part of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 5 reunion episode shows that things may get even worse between Kyle Richards and Kim Richards. In the clip, the two argue over the severity of what Kim’s dog did to Kyle’s daughter Alexia. Kyle yells that her daughter almost lost her hand while Kim counters that her daughter just had “a bite on her f**cking finger.”
