Richards got right into the gossip on her Amazon Livestream. When a fan asked “Looks like you are rejoining RHOBH,” Richards replied, “Does it? I haven’t said anything yet.”

“I know there’s reports online that I’m not coming back I’m coming back,” she added. “That conversation is actually TBD.”

Another fan asked Richards what it would take for her to return to the Bravo reality show.

“It’s not like a deciding factor with the show,” she replied. “It’s just, you know, what I need. It just feels so soon for me right now. That’s why it’s hard for me to say at this point, just because of everything that’s going on. And it was a hard season and all.”

Another fan asked Richards when she has to make her decision about returning. “Pretty, pretty soon!” she said with a nervous laugh.

Richards previously said planned to wait as long as possible to decide if she’s returning to the show. During an Amazon Live on March 5, 2024, a fan asked her when she would make her decision, and Richards replied: “I guess until I have no choice and have to make that decision. And it’s probably going to be a last-minute one. I’m going to take every minute I need to think about that.”

During her latest livestream, Richards fielded questions about fellow RHOBH co-stars, past and present. Early on, she was asked he thoughts on the departure of  Crystal Kung Minkoff . On April 15, Minkoff announced she was leaving the show after three seasons.  Minkoff shared the “bittersweet” news that she wasn’t asked back via an Instagram video.

“You know it made me sad,” Richards said of the unexpected news. “I’m sad, of course. You know, I don’t know I have kind of mixed feelings not because of her….just because yes, I know, it’s probably disappointing but also like, life’s great without reality television. It’s not like ‘Oh my God poor Crystal.’ She has a great family and there’s a lot to say for not doing that and you know, she’s gonna be great.”

Richards later added that she had a group chat with the rest of her RHOBH co-stars about Minkoff but that they did not talk about their own statuses on the show.

“Yesterday we spoke in a group, all of us, about Crystal, so we didn’t talk about anyone else,” she shared. “I haven’t wanted to talk about that stuff.”

Richards also said she does not know if her sister Kathy Hilton will return to RHOBH this season. “No, I don’t,” she said.

As for Dorit Kemsley, Richards confirmed their relationship is still strained following a rocky ride last season. “Haven’t seen her,” Richards said of her longtime “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” co-star.

In March, cast member Annemarie Wiley announced she was not asked back for RHOBH season 14.
