Kyle Richards has been a leading man on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills since her Bravo debut in 2010, so she’s seen a lot of co-stars come and go.
Past stars of the Bravo reality show include Lisa Vanderpump, Camille Grammer, Yolanda Hadid and even Richard’s own sister Kim.
After a rocky 12th season on RHOBH, there were calls for a cast reshuffle. Some fans think it’s time for longtime players like Lisa Rinna to leave.
In a recent interview, Richards was embarrassed and asked which RHOBH star she would like to see come back – and who she thinks she should never return.
Kyle Richards revealed who she would like to see back on RHOBH
In an interview on April 48th At the People’s Choice Awards at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California, Richards and her co-star Erika Jayne were stopped for a brief interview by Access Hollywood.
richards said Access that she really appreciates RHOBH fans “who are sticking through these 13 years”. “It was very exciting,” she added. “But this last season was very, very tough.”
The RHOBH stars were then asked which housewife they would most like to see on the show – and they both gave the same answer.
“Teddi,” Richards said, referring to her close friend Teddi Mellencamp. The accountability coach was a cast member on RHOBH for three seasons but was fired at the end of season 10 in 2020.
Richards was also asked, “Who’s the one housewife you’d wish you never brought back on the show?” The RHOBH OG hesitated for a moment before replying, “I’m staying with Carlton.”
This was in reference to Carlton Gebbia, who appeared on the show for one season and freaked Richards out with her Wiccan beliefs.
According to TooFab, during a previous appearance on the Watch What Happens Live aftershow, Richard’s host Andy Cohen said that Gebbia has “contributed the least to the show” over the years. “That would be Season 4, Carlton,” Richards said. “This is the season I like to pretend never happened. This is the season we just pretend didn’t happen.”
In the Access interview, Richards admitted that the only housewife in the newest cast that she wishes she could be closer to is Crystal Kung Minkoff, who joined the show in Season 11. “I’m going to go with Crystal because I’m going to be one for a little bit,” she said.
Andy Cohen had another choice for the RHOBH star he would most like to see return
Andy Cohen has been vocal about who he would like to see at RHOBH. While a “Ask Andy” segment Ahead of a taping of “Watch What Happens Live” in early 2022, the Bravo host answered a fan inquiry on the subject.
After a fan asked Cohen, “Who would you bring back to Beverly Hills?” He replied, “Well, Kim,” a nod to original cast member Kim Richards.
Kim Richards was a main cast member for the first five seasons of RHOBH before returning to “boyfriend of” and cameo status. Kim hasn’t appeared on RHOBH at all since season 10, but during a Q&A in February 2022, she revealed that she was contacted by Cohen to see if she was interested in returning to the show.
“I had a call,” Richards said in a shared video by No Filter starring Zack Peter. “Andy Cohen called me … He said, you know, a lot of people have been asking me to come back, and he said he was like, ‘I’m going straight to the source.’ He did.”
The return of Kim Richards probably wouldn’t go down well with Kyle considering last season’s RHOBH led to her estrangement from eldest sister Kathy Hilton. In October 2022 Kyle Richards said Page Six that she regrets that her sisters have starred in RHOBH in previous seasons.
“It was really bad for me,” she said of the final RHOBH season and reunion. “It was very emotionally draining.”
