Kyle Richards’ feud with her sisters has long been a storyline on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and Season 6 is no different. However, while Kyle Richards’ tension with her sister Kim has been the focus of much of her family feud, it is her drama with Kathy Hilton that’s taken center stage this year.

“[Kyle Richards] and Kim are still working on their issues, and now, Kathy and Kyle aren’t speaking,” a source told People on December 18.
During the first couple of episodes of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Kyle Richards was seen struggling with her decision to attend the wedding of Kathy Hilton’s daughter, Nicky Hilton, who tied the knot over the summer in London. Although Kyle Richards was initially invited to the bash, she was later told it would be best if she didn’t show up. However, she and her youngest daughter, Portia, who served as a flower girl in the wedding, ended up attended the wedding. She then revealed to Lisa Vanderpump that her husband, Mauricio Umansky, and their two oldest daughters, Sophia and Alexia, hadn’t been invited to the ceremony, although her oldest child, Farrah (whose father is Kyle Richards’ first husband), was included on the guest list.
On December 17, Kyle Richards took to her blog, where she revealed why she went to her niece’s wedding, despite her husband and two of their daughters not being invited.
“I love Nicky so much, and the idea of not witnessing her walk down the aisle was weighing heavily on me,” Kyle Richards explained to fans. “My husband is the one who pushed me to go. He kept telling me that I will never get that moment back. He said that all families go through tough times but they WILL be resolved, and if I didn’t go we would all look back with regret.”
As for why Umansky was left out of the wedding, People’s source claimed he is at war with the Hilton family after leaving Ricky Hilton’s real estate company to pursue his own.
“Kathy’s husband Rick [Hilton] is still mad at Mauricio for leaving [Rick’s real estate company] Hilton & Hyland and starting [successful competitor] The Agency. The animosity has been building up for awhile. Mauricio isn’t even welcome in the Hilton house.”
In addition to the Hilton’s issues with Umansky, the source claimed Kim Richards was also feuding with the couple and had recently been left off of the guest list for their annual holiday party, which took place earlier this month.
“There is so much drama in that family. It’s sad that even over the holidays, they still can’t get along,” the source added.

As her family feud with the Hiltons continued, Kyle Richards stepped out with Umansky and Portia for a family meal on Monday. As the Daily Mail reported on December 22, Kyle was seen with her husband and daughter in Beverly Hills.
As for what’s happening between Kyle Richards and her sister, Kim, the two women appear to be on good terms, despite their clear feud earlier this year, which aired on the previous season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. In fact, months ago, they were spotted during a night out in Los Angeles together.
