The drama at the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 12 reunion was uglier than any could have ever imagined, and it seems that the fallout post-reunion is even uglier.
OG Beverly Hills Housewife Kyle Richards confirmed that the season 12 reunion was much worse than expected.
She noted that it “took her a while to recover from that day” as she left the reunion in tears.
“I’m feeling better now, but that’s the downside of reality television. That’s why I prefer acting because it’s a character, and you can leave it behind,” the mom-of-four confessed.
While chatting with E! News to promote her new film Halloween Ends, Kyle talked about her sister Kathy Hilton’s fallout with Lisa Rinna and also revealed where she stands with her sister following the reunion.
“Absolutely my least favorite reunion that I’ve done in these last twelve years,” Kyle admitted. “I knew going into it, it was not going to be easy, but I think I’ve been holding a lot in, so it was a very emotional reunion for me. I try not even think about it because it was very difficult.
“It was the first reunion that we left, and we didn’t have drinks or dinner or do a group photo or hug or anything,” she continued. “It was just done, so I kind of was left with not a good feeling, and just trying to work through that.”
When it comes to her relationship with Kathy post-reunion, Kyle admitted: “Things are not great right now, but I have high hopes,” adding that they “always come back together.”
“I know that’s why I was so emotional at the reunion,” she elaborated. “For me, I don’t think people realize how much it affects my family and the relationships, and I have been holding that in for so long, and that’s why I felt so emotional.”
As for her friendship with Lisa and Lisa’s fallout with Kathy, Kyle said that not much gets resolved at the reunion. Kyle says that the reunion left the ladies in the same position they were in the finale episode of season 12.
“You know, as we saw on the season finale of the show, relationships are definitely strained in the cast, and things pretty much remain as you saw in the season finale. At the reunion, not much was resolved, which is what the goal is with the reunion – to make your points and talk through these things and have some resolution. I definitely did not get that,” Kyle explained.
Part 1 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 12 reunion airs Wednesday, Oct. 11, at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
