There’s a whole lot to unpack when it comes to where Kyle Richards and her sister Kathy Hilton stand following the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 12 reunion.
Kathy was recently asked by TMZ if everything is okay between her and Kyle. The socialite told the outlet: “Yeah, that’s my sister; I love her.”
However, Kathy’s recent social media comments and various reports tell a different story. Kathy recently called Kyle out for crying at the reunion when she was the one who was “bullied for ten months.” Read all about that HERE.
Various media outlets claim that Kathy and Kyle’s relationship is more fractured than ever following the season 12 reunion.
TMZ also reports that Kathy and Kyle are hardly speaking following the season 12 reunion. What both Kyle and Kathy said to each other on and off camera is reportedly “so shocking it was hard to watch,” according to one source. A production source also claims that Kathy “unraveled” after leaving the reunion set, which made Kyle even more emotional.
Another source tells PEOPLE that Kyle and Kathy brought “a lot of tense energy” to the reunion set.
“They cannot reconcile, and it’s all so complicated because nobody’s backing down. Kyle has backed up her sister for years, and no matter what she does, Kathy isn’t satisfied,” the source adds. “What we’re watching is years of family trauma that hasn’t been dealt with in a family dynamic.”
Things are so bad that Kathy’s daughters, Paris Hilton and Nicky Hilton Rothschild, have been forced to intervene.
“They all grew up together. Kyle acted as a spokesperson for the Hilton family for a long time. They always make up, but this is a little different because Kathy is front and center on camera. She hasn’t been forced to be vulnerable. Kathy and Kyle have spoken loosely via text only since the reunion,” the insider adds.
Part 1 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 12 reunion airs Wednesday, Oct. 11, at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
