Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards’ sister Kathy Hilton has remained tight-lipped since Kim’s arrest for public intoxication. It seems that while everyone is giving their two cents on Kim and her battle with sobriety it was RHOM’s Joanna Krupa’s lack of comment on Kim’s drinking issues that led Kathy to speak publicly.
As we reported yesterday, Joanna recently was asked about Kim’s arrest to which she responded,“I don’t know, but I love Kyle Richards so I wouldn’t say anything bad about her sister. I’m sure, Kyle, her sister, knows best. I don’t know Kim, so I don’t want to comment because I don’t want to say something that’s going to hurt the family.”
The classy response from Joanna must have struck a cord with Kathy Hilton because Kathy reached out to Joanna on Twitter to thank her. Kathy said, “@joannakrupa Thank you for your kind words about @KimRichards11. It’s refreshing to see someone not capitalizing off someone’s misfortune xo.”
Joanna then tweeted Kathy back saying, “Of course???? Only a heartless person could speak bad about someone going through a tough time in their life . @KathyHilton @KimRichards11.”
I think Kathy publicly thanking Joanna was really nice. But I also think it was a way to slam Kim’s RHOBH co-stars and “friends” who are commenting left and right about Kim’s arrest and sobriety issues.
Do you think people are capitalizing off Kim’s misfortune?
