Kyle Richards & Kathy Hilton Unite!
Kyle Richards and sisters, Kim Richards and Kathy Hilton have fought for years but the matriarch of the Richards sisters, Kathy Hilton, distanced herself further after Kyle produced television series, American Woman.
The trio’s rift grew deeper when The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star proceeded with the television series based on the family’s dysfunctional childhood.
However, the division between the sisters has seemingly ended, as they all gathered to celebrate Kim’s birthday on September 26, “Off to my final birthday celebration with my sisters [Kathy and Kyle], so excited,” Kim shared on Instagram. And on Instagram stories, Kyle shared a candid moment of her sister Kathy while they were all out together.

During a Watch What Happens Live appearance in May, Kyle discussed the rift with big sister, Kathy. She explained that her show, American Woman, was the main reason for their fall out and not speaking for months.
In September, Paramount Networks announced that Kyle’s series, American Woman, was canceled after one season. The show saw its viewership drop nearly in half during its 11-episode run.
Also, on a previous season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Kyle’s niece Nicky Hilton’s wedding in London was the source of much drama. Kyle was invited but not her husband Mauricio Umansky, who has beef with Kathy’s husband, Rick Hilton. Mauricio use to work for Rick’s real estate company and when Rick’s team would not make Mauricio a partner — he left to start his own real estate agency. As a result, Mauricio is not welcome at any Hilton events, which places Kyle in the middle to choose between her husband and her older sister, Kathy.
