The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills - RHOBH

Kyle Richards Talks Season 13 Casting Including Kathy’s Ultimatum, Diana’s Future on the Show, and the Current Friendship Status of the Fox Force

Kyle Richards is dishing some dirt about the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, including season 13 casting and the current status of the Fox Force Five.

The OG Bravoleb appeared on her BFF Teddi Mellencamp’s Two T’s in a Pod podcast where they dished all things RHOBH.

To start, the ladies discussed Kathy Hilton’s recent ultimatum that she would only return for season 13 if Lisa Rinna and Erika Jayne were NOT a part of the cast.

Kyle explained, “I don’t know who is coming back or who is not. I do know that anytime a cast member has said, ‘I don’t want to do the show with so and so,’ that doesn’t work. That doesn’t happen.”

“Maybe she doesn’t realize that, but that doesn’t work,” Kyle added. “The more you don’t want someone on [the show], the more [producers] are going to want them on so that just doesn’t fly. Bravo makes their own decisions.”

Teddi then brought up RHOBH newbie Diana Jenkins and asked if she was a one-and-done.

“I don’t know. I have no idea,” Kyle insisted. Teddi said the “blind” gossip is throwing her for a loop now that Diana is back to hanging out with Lisa and Erika. Kyle notes that those three are “friends” and even went to Hawaii together.

The RHOBH alum brings up Diana missing the reunion because she was sick but took the time to get glam. Kyle defends Diana, saying, “If you’re doing the reunion, you’re going to have glam even if you’re sick.”

Kyle also insists that Diana was “very, very sick.”

“She was very sick, like [a] lung infection; honestly, she was,” Kyle told Teddi. “I asked people behind the scenes, and she really was genuinely very sick.”

When asked if Diana had COVID, Kyle said, “I think she had it and had a lasting infection or something like that. Her baby had it too.”

“I asked the question to the behind-the-scenes people, and that’s what I was told,” Kyle added.


Meanwhile, the two also discussed the current status of the Fox Force Five, which consists of Kyle, Teddi, Lisa, Erika, and Dorit Kemsley.

Teddi admits that the foxes have not been corresponding since BravoCon and asks Kyle: “Who are you still talking to?”

“Oh, Ted, that’s a loaded question these days,” Kyle confesses. “You’re an a** I came on here as a favor to you.”

Kyle finally answers the question, saying, “I’m not, not talking to anyone. Things are just different right now. They have been that way for a while, I would say. I think people can kind of connect the dots. I’ve had to step away not only from the show but [from] watching that [and] engaging in anything connected to the show because I was struggling with my anxiety. I just knew it was in my best interest.”

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will return for season 13 in 2023.
