Kyle Richards and Kathy Hilton’s sisterly bond hits a few snags during season 12 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Now the two Bravo stars are teasing their reported drama while also clearing the air on rumors there’s bad blood between them.
Kathy dishes to E! News about allegations she bad-mouthed Kyle while filming season 12. In the season 12 trailer, fans saw Lisa Rinna call Kathy out.
Lisa told Kathy, “You said some things about this beautiful sister of yours. I’m sorry, Kathy, you’re not going to get away with it.” Kyle said to Kathy through tears, “I feel like you hate me or something. How could you say those things?”
The mom of four admits she said something she shouldn’t about Kyle this season that she should have kept to herself.
“You know, we’re sisters and we all enjoy each other when we’re together. I don’t want to give away the storyline. I should have never said anything to anyone about my sister Kyle, or anyone,” Kathy revealed to E! News on April 27.
Despite Lisa calling her out, Kathy insists she and Lisa are on good terms.
“Yeah, we’re friendly,” Kathy said, adding “I should not have said anything.”
Meanwhile, Kyle recently appeared on her BFF Teddi Mellencamp’s podcast, Two T’s in a Pod, with Tamra Judge.
During the interview, Kyle cleared the air about rumors that she wasn’t invited to Kathy’s birthday party.
Kyle said, “There was no boycott. I was actually filming, as a lot of people don’t realize, when we wrap the show, which we call primary shooting, when we’re not filming together anymore, we do interviews up until even after we film the reunion.”
She added, “So I did not wrap until 7:30 that night and the dinner started at 7. I had nobody home to watch [daughter] Portia [Umansky]. I wouldn’t have gotten there til 8:30 something. I would have missed the whole thing. So I had to last-minute say I’m not going to be able to make it.”
The RHOBH OG also shot down recent comments from co-star Crystal Minkoff that Kathy had multiple parties and that Kyle and sister Kim Richards were invited to a different event.
“This is no shade to Crystal but I saw something the other day that she was asked about me not showing up at the birthday and she said, ‘Well, that’s because Kathy has a lot of different groups of friends and she was invited to a different party.’ I’m like, ‘No, I actually was invited to that party too I just genuinely could not make it because I got finished filming [late],’” Kyle explained.
As we previously reported, Crystal previously shut down reports Kyle and Kim weren’t invited to Kathy’s birthday party because they are all on the outs.
“I’m going to clarify the birthday. I was invited to the birthday. I couldn’t go,” Crystal told Us Weekly on Saturday, April 9. “Kyle and [Kim Richards] have a different group that they hang out with, so I think the show makes it feel like that’s [Kathy’s] crew, but, like, she had multiple birthdays. That was just [one] birthday. We all have five birthday lunches.”
She continued, “They’re family and they’re sisters, and there’s no way that any family could keep it perfect all the time. And when you’re on a reality show, you’re going to show the ups and downs of it.”
Season 12 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills premieres on May 11 on Bravo.
