Kim Richards Returns Lisa Rinna's Gift During 'The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills' Reunion & It's So Uncomfortable
Towards the end of the second part of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion special, Kim Richards appeared on stage to hash out some drama from the season, even though she was just a background player this time around. After shocking everyone with the revelation that she once dated Donald Trump in the '90s, Kim made everyone even more uncomfortable when a viewer question referred to the stuffed bunny that Rinna had given to Kim during the season for her new baby grandson. Kim literally pulled the bunny (still in the wrapping that it came in) from behind a pillow and returned Rinna's gift for her grandson to her right on the reunion stage.
Kim claimed that she is "all about energy now" and that the gift wasn't given with good energy, so she never intended to give it to her grandson. She then handed it back to Rinna in front of everyone and said she would happily take it back when Rinna was in a better place. The shade being thrown was so heavy that I fear it may have broken the atmosphere. Wear extra sunscreen, everyone because Kim Richards may have just doomed the planet with this act of savagery. Her sister Kyle (along with everyone else on the stage) literally couldn't even look at the scene unfolding before her and instead just stared at Andy Cohen. Rinna started to cry and Kim just scoffed that, "You don't need to cry over it".
Eileen said what most of us were likely thinking when she simply stated that Kim could have easily sent the gift back through the mail if it was really an act of sincerity. Doing it in front of cameras, at the reunion special felt self-serving to say the least. Rinna ended up leaving the stage in tears and Eileen followed her friend to console her. At Kyle's urging, Kim made an attempt to talk to Rinna but the episode ended with Rinna refusing to speak to her.
It will certainly be interesting to see if these two discuss this further next week, but this particular move was really callous on Kim's part.
