Will Kylie Richards make a comeback on the RHOBH?

Most Real Housewives stars perform a "I might not return" dance to entice viewers and and to encourage them to beg the stars fora return. However, with Kyle Richards, she might potentially need a break for real reasons. After a season without her sisters' support, Richards struggled and had a few storylines, but didn't endear herself to viewers. The audience was uncertain if the public opinion would favor a sympathy edit for her.

Now she’s saying, on schedule, it might be time for a pause. “Each year I say, ‘I don’t know. Never say never,’ and all that,” Kyle began. “But, I honestly just don’t know yet. I don’t know where my life is going to be at in a week or two. I don’t know what it’s going to be like when the cameras go up again, where my life is going to be at and what I’m comfortable with.”


Richards added, “It feels like everybody wants to know and that they feel they are entitled to every detail of my life. Because I have been showing my life and sharing my life with everybody for 13 years. It’s not that I’m lying or withholding, I’m figuring it out still.”

Richards had her deepest darkest secret exposed on Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills. Kathy Hilton left after being accused of an alleged crazy racist meltdown. Richards also lost a friendship after accusing a grieving Lisa Vanderpump of lying. 

“I don’t have answers. They think I’m teasing them, dragging it out, I’m going this for ratings. I’m figuring it out right now and we are figuring it out as a couple and I’m figuring out what I need myself. And when I know and we know where our life is going next, you’re gonna know,” Richards shared.
