Ex-besties and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills costars Kyle Richards (left) and Lisa Vanderpump (right, with Giggy, the best character on the show) are apparently feuding this season.
Kyle and her sister Kim Richards (who is also on the show) were both successful child actresses. Kyle converted to Judaism to marry her husband, whose family are Eastern European Jews who settled in Mexico and then moved to LA. Although Kyle did a traditional Orthodox conversion, her own tastes lean a little more toward Hollywood-style Kabbalah.
In case there was any doubt, Sophia’s bat mitzvah was filmed by Bravo for the show. So this whole story is probably just PR for the new season.
