Reality star Kim Richards turned down Andy Cohen’s offer to return to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and revealed what she’d need to come back.
Kim Richards turned down Andy Cohen’s offer to return to Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. The child actor, known for appearing in classic films like Disney’s Escape to Witch Mountain, went from scripted to reality when she signed on to the premiere season of RHOBH in 2010. After five seasons alongside her sister Kyle Richards and other original cast members, she was let go due to personal struggles. However, Kim continued to make guest appearances on the show in seasons 6, 7, 9 and 10.
Audiences last saw Kim Richards move the RHOBH story forward in season 10. The zany personality stirred the pot with Brandi Glanville when they appeared on the show to reveal that the latter and former cast member Denise Richards had an affair. Now in season 12, viewers are hoping to see more Kim, especially since her other sister Kathy Hilton is now a part of the show. While Bravo lovers hope to see Kim, Kathy and Kyle share the screen together, it’s unclear if that will ever happen.
Kim Richards recently revealed to E! News that she turned down a casual offer from Andy to return to RHOBH. Stating that the King of Bravo personally called her to discuss a possible return, Kim insists that while she didn’t want to turn down the head honcho, but it simply wasn’t a good time. Check out what the reality star had to say below:
“Having Andy call me was big. I know it was big for him to make the call, so I didn’t want to say ‘no,’ because it wasn’t ‘no,’ it just it wasn’t the time for me. I came into this very respected in my business. And of course I made mistakes, but I didn’t feel respected by the people that I was working with any longer and then that wasn’t okay for me. I’ve worked hard to love and respect myself today, so if I go back, I just have to feel that respect again.”
It’s clear that Kim isn’t completely closing the door on returning to RHOBH in a more regular capacity. She went on to detail that if she were to go back she’d need to feel respected by her fellow cast members. This includes her sisters Kyle, a forever full-time housewife, and Kathy, a new fan favorite. According to her, their rollercoaster relationship as a trio is currently in a good place, though she doesn’t see Kyle much. Of course, that doesn’t mean Kim is ready to be on camera with the other ladies of La La Land.
What’s most interesting about Kim’s comments is that Andy Cohen himself inquired about her coming back. Though she may not be ready to return yet, it’s exciting to know that the Bravo puppet masters are hoping to have all three Richards sisters on the show at some point. After all, the entire concept of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was originally rooted in their family dynamics. Whether or not the entertaining trio ever actually headlines a season remains to be seen.
