Kim Richards reveals that she would return to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills on one condition.
While chatting with E! News, Kim admits there’s a small chance that she would return to RHOBH if approached about it.
”I came into this very respected in my business. And of course, I made mistakes, but I didn’t feel respected by the people that I was working with any longer, and then that wasn’t okay for me. I’ve worked hard to love and respect myself today, so if I go back, I just have to feel that respect again,” Kim explained.
Naturally, Kim is hesitant to return to RHOBH, which isn’t hard to believe considering her rollercoaster past with the franchise.
Yet, she was surprised when earlier this year, Andy Cohen reached out to her to see if she was interested in returning to the fold.
“Having Andy call me was big. I know it was big for him to make the call, so I didn’t want to say ‘no,’ because it wasn’t ‘no,’ it just it wasn’t the time for me,” she admitted.
In February, Kim opened up about Andy’s call, saying, “He said, you know, a lot of people have been asking for me to come back, and he said he thought, ‘I’ll go right to the source,’ so he did. I do love Andy a lot.”
Kim and her sister Kyle Richards starred in the inaugural season of RHOBH. Kim ultimately left the show after season 5. She has since popped up on the franchise as a guest numerous times. As for Kyle, she is the last remaining OG on the show. Currently, Kyle stars on RHOBH alongside her other sister Kathy Hilton, who joined the show during season 11.
Both Kyle and Kathy have expressed interest in Kim joining them on the show in some capacity.
The three are currently in a good place after having numerous ups and downs over the years, including times when they did not speak.
“I’m okay with Kyle,” Kim told E! News. “I wish I could see her more. I wish we could spend a little more time together. I spend more time with Kathy than Kyle, and I do miss my sister.”
Only time will tell if Kim returns to RHOBH, but it would be interesting to see.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs on Wednesdays at 8 pm on Bravo.
