‘Real Housewives’ Kyle Richards Responds To Twitter Hate After Kim Richards’ Hospitalization

Real Housewives‘ Kyle Richards was on Twitter this week, but it wasn’t to address her sister Kim’s reported hospitalization. Instead, she was addressing a Real Housewives of Beverly Hills viewer, who didn’t seem to like her on-screen persona.

Kyle has been featured on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills in a full-time role since the series began years ago, and when it returns for Season 6, she will rejoin her co-stars, including Lisa Vanderpump, Lisa Rinna, and Eileen Davidson. She will also be joined by new housewife Erika Jayne, and possibly one other woman, as well.

Meanwhile, Kyle’s older sister, Kim, has reportedly been fired from the Real Housewives due to her alcohol relapse earlier this year and multiple arrests in the months since.

As the Inquisitr previously reported, former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards was allegedly placed on a 5150 hold last week, and has been in treatment at a second facility since her release. On Wednesday, news of the former Real Housewives star’s hospitalization was reported by Radar Online, who claimed it was her family who forced her to address her ongoing struggles with sobriety.

“They were at the end of their rope trying to get her help and decided to force her to get it… Kim finally realized that she needed help and is truly committed to getting it. She voluntarily checked into an inpatient facility in Orange County. The family has been very supportive of this move.”

According to the report, the former Real Housewives star’s family put their foot down ahead of the 5150 hold, telling Kim if she didn’t get help, they would no longer be offering to help her financially.

“They told her she had to do it or she was cut off from all of them financially. It is tough love. Kim hit rock bottom and is finally ready to do the work needed to get her life back on track.”

Although the former Real Housewives star is said to be in a second facility, where she’s continuing treatment, that facility has yet to be revealed, and thus far, no details have been giving regarding whether or not the facility is an addiction center, or one that deals with mental health issues.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 6 is expected to premiere on Bravo later this year.
