The reports that Kyle Richards and Kathy Hilton’s relationship is now so bad that they’re not speaking to or seeing one another are apparently untrue. Kyle actually spent Christmas Eve with her older sister, along with her good friend Faye Resnick.
On Thursday night, Kyle posted a photo of herself with Kathy and Faye at a Christmas party.
In response to one person who left a comment stating, “Not sure as a mother I would be too happy about that lol but to each their own,” Kyle responded, “Taking a picture with someone?”
Kyle’s husband, Mauricio Umanksy, also went to the party.
Viewers of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills have watched Kyle’s turbulent relationship with Kim unfold through five seasons of the show. On the current sixth season, Kyle’s relationship with Kathy came to the forefront when Kyle revealed during an episode that she was disinvited from Nicky Hilton’s wedding to James Rothschild. Kyle made clear that Kathy told her not to come.
“Obviously this is not something that makes me feel good but it’s Nicky’s day and my sister Kathy’s day, as the mother of the bride, so I have to respect her decision.”
While Kyle did not elaborate on the cause of the disinvite, she did say that her relationship with Kathy wasn’t good. A flashback scene showed Kyle telling Lisa Vanderpump that she just sold a TV show based on her life growing up in the 70s with her sisters, and the show may make some people uncomfortable. Lisa guessed that Kyle’s sisters weren’t very happy about her developing the show.
Later on in the episode, after Kyle was invited to the wedding again and made the decision to go, it was revealed that her husband, Mauricio, still wasn’t invited. Kyle’s two middle daughters also weren’t invited because of a no-child policy at the wedding. Lisa and her husband, Ken Todd, voiced their disagreement with the fact that the entire family couldn’t go. Lisa said that she wouldn’t go to a wedding if her husband wasn’t welcome too.
Last Saturday, Us Weekly reported that Kyle Richards and Kathy Hilton still aren’t getting along. The site explained that the two sisters have tension stemming from Mauricio leaving Rick Hilton’s real estate firm years ago and starting his own agency, which Rick found to be a betrayal. It also stated that Kathy does not approve of Kyle signing a deal to air a TV show based on their childhood.
