Kathy and Kyle’s beef goes way back
Kathy Hilton’s debut on RHOBH saw her manage to navigate the world of reality tv without a hitch when it came to conflict with her cast mates. However, it seems that filming with family is something that’s an issue for the Richards, Hilton sisters.
In 2021, Kyle said to US Weekly that she and her sister, Kim, are back on speaking terms after having conflict in the past. Kyle and Kathy have also had their fair share of beef in the relationship which goes back to times before Kathy joining RHOBH.
Prior to appearing on RHOBH together, Kathy and Kyle had a feud that spanned years. As per The Sun: “Their feud began around 2010 when Kathy’s husband, Rick Hilton, didn’t make Kyle’s spouse, Mauricio Umansky, a partner in his real estate firm.“
The two also had a falling out back in 2015 over a TV series inspired by their mother called American Woman. Kathy got lawyers involved when it came to the TV show which was Kyle’s business venture.
The two looked to be on better terms in 2021. Speaking of her sister at the RHOBH season 11 reunion, Kyle said: “I’ve always said my sister is hysterical, she is a practical joker... We’re all so different.“
But, Kathy added as mysterious comment at the reunion: “No-one knows the real Kyle, you see.“
Fans say Lisa Rinna is always in the middle of the sisters’ drama
After observing what’s to come in RHOBH season 12 from the trailer, many fans of the show have taken to Twitter to ask questions about why Lisa Rinna has plonked herself in the middle of the Hilton, Richards sisters’ drama yet another time.
One fan tweeted: “Why is Rinna always inserting herself in Kyle & her sisters drama? First with Kim, now with Kathy, and why is no one calling her out about it?“.
Another wrote: “How does Rinna think it’s her place to call out Kathy about Kyle and Kathy’s issues? Stay the hell out of other peoples family matters. It’s not something anyone else needs to be involved in.“
Another RHOBH fan suggested that some juicy family details could be on their way in season 12, tweeting: “The way Kathy says “Kyle…Kyle” in the RHOBH trailer makes me believe we’re going to get a whole lot of family backstory this season.“
