LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- It appears Camille Grammer isn’t the only Beverly Hills “Housewife” not ready to commit to a Season 2 of the Bravo reality show.
During a taping on Monday of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” Kyle Richards revealed that her sister – Kim Richards, who ended Season 1 of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” in rehab (which she later left) — might not come back.
“Kim’s not here. Is she OK?” Ellen asked the ladies.
“I think she doesn’t really like to be around this crowd that much,” Kyle said, no doubt referring to the big blow up on the season finale of the show that saw all of the ladies confronting Kim, and later, a heated limo exchange between the two sisters. “I think she’s a little gun shy right now.”
“So she won’t be back next season? That’s safe to assume?” Ellen asked.
“I don’t know,” Kyle said. “I don’t know yet.”
On the “Ellen” episode featuring the women, which airs on Tuesday, Camille also addressed estranged husband Kelsey Grammer’s plans to marry his fiancée, Kayte Walsh, this month – even though Camille and Kelsey are still married.
“It’s just crazy,” Camille said.
Kyle said that now that the Beverly Hills “Housewives” have seen the issues Camille was dealing with while they were filming Season 1 of their show, she feels for Camille.
“We didn’t know what was going on with her marriage. She didn’t even know at first. We had problems and now that I look at the show as an audience, of course I feel terrible,” Kyle said. “My heart goes out to her. I think the way he’s handled things is terrible and I’m a wife and a mom, I’d be devastated. I wouldn’t want to see anyone go through something like that.”
Part 2 of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion Show” airs on Bravo on Tuesday at 10 PM.
