Andy Cohen wants a former diamond-holder back on The Real Housewives. In a recent TikTok interview with Parade magazine, the Bravo host was asked which ex-housewife he’d like to see return to the franchise, and a former Beverly Hills star topped his list.

After sharing that he’s “really excited” about Porsha Williams coming back to The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Cohen said, “I think now that we’ve got Kyle [Richards] and Kathy [Hilton], I think it would be fun if Kim Richards came back.”

Kim starred in the show’s Beverly Hills iteration alongside Kyle, her younger sister, for five seasons (2010–2015). Her tenure birthed some of the franchise’s most memorable moments (see: the infamous Amsterdam showdown and that reunion bunny).

Since exiting the show, the former child actor has made a string of guest appearances, as has her older sister, Kathy, who is set to appear in the forthcoming Season 14 in a “friend of” role.

While Cohen is eager to see Kim’s 90210 comeback, she isn’t keen on the idea. “I will never say never but most likely not,” she told E! News in 2023 about a possible return.

With that being said, she’s open to starring in a reality show with her two sisters. “I would rather do something with the three of us away from that kind of negativity,” she told E! News.

RHOBH Season 14 Cast

On May 22, Bravo confirmed that Beverly Hills Season 14 will welcome several new faces — including an Academy Award-nominated actor — following the exits of Crystal Kung Minkoff and Annemarie Wiley, who left after Season 12.

The 90210 newbies will be joined by returning stars Kyle, Erika Jayne, Dorit Kemsley, Sutton Stracke, and Garcelle Beauvais.
