Are Kathy Hilton and Kyle Richards Feuding?
While Kathy did not offer an explanation about her sudden departure from RHOBH, some fans have speculated that it has to do with her longtime feud with sister Kyle Richards. The siblings have had a rocky relationship in the public eye with things coming to a head during the RHOBH season 12, which aired throughout 2022.
“I just wanted somebody to say to me, ‘Look, you two love each other. Everything will be fine. You’re just overtired,” Kathy told Us Weekly in July 2022 about the situation. “I just wanted someone to vent to. And I guess that what I’ve learned is — I love both my sisters. I love them. They’re my blood, and I never should have said anything to anybody.”
When it comes to their relationship following the show, both Kyle and Kathy have shared major updates on where they stand. In May 2022, the siblings reunited at niece Whitney Davis‘ bridal shower.
“We spoke at the shower,” Kyle, for one, told E! News in June 2023. “Things are obviously not great, I think most people know that. But we’re family, we’re blood. We’ll always come back together.”
Kathy, for her part, told the publication that things “went well” when she reunited with Kyle, noting that she’d “like to” eventually reunite as a family.
