Kyle Richards is rumored to be on Bravo’s chopping block after her sister, Kim Richards, was fired from the show, but the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills‘ star tells fans on Thursday “don’t fret” the rumors that she will not be returning for the sixth season of the show.
On June 3, reports surfaced that Bravo execs are looking to fire Kyle Richards after giving Kim Richards the boot. According to Radar Online, a source well-connected with the network claims producers have been wanting to get rid of both sisters for some time now. With Kim’s recent relapse, arrest, and rumored bizarre behavior at her daughter’s wedding in Mexico, Bravo is taking the opportunity to get rid of both of the Richards sisters, claims the source.
“Execs have been wanting to get rid of one, if not both, of the sisters for some time. Bravo’s actively looking for new ladies.”
According to the report, Kyle’s new deal with TV Land makes the timing perfect to fire her from the show. However, if Richards’ recent responses to Twitter fans’ inquiries about her not returning to the show are any indication, she will return for the sixth season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
In response to a fan who tweeted they will protest Kyle’s new show on TV Land if the reality star leaves RHOBH, Kyle tells the fan not to worry.
When asked directly by fans if the Radar Online report of her being fired is true, the reality star responded by calling out the gossip site once again for publishing stories that are untrue.
The rumor that execs were contemplating firing Kyle Richards came on the same day E! News reported Kim Richards would not return to RHOBH as a full-time cast member, although she may make a few appearances during the sixth season. According to E! News, all of the other Housewives are expected to return.
Bravo has yet to officially announce which Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ cast members will or will not return for the sixth season of the show, which is set to begin filming this summer. However, it seems more likely that Kyle’s hint that she will return for another season of the show is true as she, Lisa Rinna, and Lisa Vanderpump all attended the 2015 Bravo Upfronts last month.
