Lisa Vanderpump shocked fans when she revealed she was leaving The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills after nine seasons and her departure has caused a lot of new casting rumors.
One of the rumors swirling the internet is that Kyle Richards’ sister Kathy Hilton would replace Vanderpump, but Hilton quickly shot those reports down with a funny Instagram post.
While Kathy it doesn’t look like Kathy will be joining the cast, Kyle says she would love for both of her sisters to be part of the show.
“I would be happy if my sister — I had one sister on, why not have another sister on? My sister Kathy is actually — people don’t know this — she’s one of the funniest people there is. She’s a practical joker, and she’s very, very funny. I think she’d be an amazing Housewife, actually,” the reality TV star said on Watch What Happens Live. “Never say never.”
However, Kim Richards seems very keen on the idea of re-joining the cast. Kim was a full-time Housewife and quit the show in 2015 after going through some personal issues which included; spending a night in jail after she was caught attempting to shoplift from a Target store and getting kicked out of the Beverly Hills Hotel for being drunk.
“Kim has been begging producers to take her back ever since she was fired,” an insider reveals.
“Kim has been hanging on as a friend of the Housewives,” the source tells RadarOnline. “But right now, she has no other job and has no other source of income.”
Apparently, producers are concerned that a sober Kim will bore viewers, but she’s promised “she will deliver the drama” if invited back to the cast.
I think Kathy would make for interesting TV and we could get to know the family dynamic better, but as for Kim, I feel like it’s probably not the best decision for her return. Do you agree?
