Spilling the tea!
Kyle Richards is dishing on why she unfollowed longtime friend Bethenny Frankel on Instagram.
“She unfollowed me,” the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star admitted while appearing on the June 9 episode of Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen. “And I was like, ‘Why do I want to follow someone who doesn’t follow me?’ So, I just said, ‘I don’t need to keep up with her either, then.’”
She then joked that she would “not” be a guest on season 2 of Bethenny’s HBO Max show, The Big Shot With Bethenny.

However, Kyle explained that she and Bethenny are still friends despite the social media drama.
“We still talk and text. We text each other,” she explained. “I don’t know; she just unfollowed a lot of people.”
Bethenny and Kyle’s friendship pre-dates their time on Bravo or social media.
During a 2016 episode of RHOBH, Kyle revealed how she and Bethenny became such good friends. It turns out the two actresses turned reality TV stars both dated the same guy in the 90s.
“When I first met Bethenny, she was working at La Scala Boutique, a restaurant in Beverly Hills,” Kyle confessed at the time. “She came up to my table and was like, ‘Hi. I’m dating your ex-boyfriend.’ … She’s always been a go-getter.”
A year later, the former Real Housewives of New York star opened up about her relationship with Kyle in a clip for Bravo.
“Kyle and I have always had the exact same friendship for years,” Bethenny said in 2017. “When we first met, we were thick as thieves. Both not really working and just running around.”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
