It’s no secret that Kyle, Kathy, and their sister Kim Richards have had turbulent relationships over the years. Things got worse for the siblings when Kyle developed the short-lived show American Woman, loosely based on their mother Kathleen Richards’ life. Kathy and Kim were not pleased, causing a major rift with the sisters.
As RHOBH fans know, Kim appeared on the show alongside Kyle for a few seasons. Now Kathy has joined her younger sister in a friend role prompting even more tense feelings between the siblings.

The trailer for Season 12, which just kicked off, features Lisa Rinna calling out Kathy for things she said about Kyle in the past. It previews a tense time that’s coming for the sisters, who only began to truly rebuild their relationship a couple of years ago.
At the NBCUniversal Upfront this week, Kyle spoke candidly after her complicated feud with Kathy when asked about the sisterly bond.
“It’s so complicated and complex. All I can say is, we’re family and we’re going to have these moments. I feel like my sisters and I, we have arguments, we make up, we’re blood. I don’t know if everyone is like that. The fact that we’re on television complicates things,” Kyle expressed to Page Six at the event.
No, their rift or feud has nothing to do with Kathy joining RHOBH, which Kyle has been a part of since day one.
“A lot of people think, ‘Wait, are you upset that they put Kathy on the show? It was my idea,” she spilled.
