This time around their fallout stems from Kim’s recent decisions surrounding her alleged sobriety and mental health issues.
Kim allegedly checked out of a hospital ‘against medical advice’ after seeking treatment. This move didn’t sit well with Kyle, prompting the RHOBH star to “reach out” to her sister.
Apparently, the conversation didn’t go well, according to sources and led to another fallout.
“Kyle Richards has been sincerely concerned for her sister Kim Richards that she has not been in a good place, so a couple of days ago she decided to reach out,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.
“The two sat down and had a conversation and Kyle is upset and frustrated because Kim did not take well to it,” the source explains. “[Kim] felt Kyle’s words came out harsh and that Kyle was overstepping her boundaries and [was] out of line. But Kyle felt it was her duty as her sister to let her know that she’s here to help and [that she’s] concerned.”
The conversation quickly turned into a “heated argument” and the sisters “haven’t spoken since,” claims the source.
“Kyle is stressed about her sister’s health and well-being,” but Kim isn’t as concerned. In fact, “Kim is adamant that she is fine,” despite reports she was taken to UCLA’s E.R. in “recent weeks.”
A source tells Us Weekly that Kim was “incoherent, rambling and seemed to be having a serious mental health breakdown of sorts.”
The former RHOBH star allegedly checked herself out fo the hospital “against medical advice,” adds the source. “Her family was frantic trying to find her” before she “surfaced the next day at her house.”
“Kim checked herself out of the hospital, which added to Kyle’s concerns, but Kim did this because she truly believes she has no problem and didn’t need to be there,” an insider reveals to HollywoodLife.
Despite their latest rift, Kyle knows she did the right thing by reaching out to Kim.
“Kyle was just trying to help and let Kim know that she’s here for her. She just wants the best for her sister,” the source explains.
The former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star has been to treatment multiple times for substance abuse over the years.
Kim’s battle with sobriety and her rocky relationship with Kyle has been documented on RHOBH since the show debuted in 2010.
Meanwhile, Kyle recently started filming season 10 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
On Thursday, August 22 Kyle and co-star Teddi Mellencamp were spotted filming while they dinned at Il Tramezzino off of Ventura Boulevard in Studio City, CA.
The two were all smiles and looked to be having a fun, and juicy conversation. Perhaps they were indulging in a little bit of gossip.
Speaking of gossip, it seems that Bravo didn’t pay any attention to the petition to fire Kyle and Teddi from RHOBH as they are both seemingly back for season 10.
Turns out the two RHOBH stars were never worried about getting the ax from Bravo.
“Teddi and Kyle are not at all offended by fans calling for their firing. They’re both 100 percent confident they’ll be back for another season,” a source close to Kyle and Teddi told HollywoodLife. “Both Teddi and Kyle know Lisa has really loyal, hardcore fans, however, they know they do as well.”
As for the rest of the season 10 cast, all the Housewives just learned “last week” that they would all be returning for the much anticipated season 10.
Rumor has it that Lisa Rinna’s good friend Sutton Stracke will be the “new addition” to the cast for season 10.
