The latest episode of RHOBH Season 12, which aired on Wednesday, September 14, was pretty intense and dramatic. Kyle Richards was seen crying over Dorit Kemsley as the latter skipped her plans for Erika Jayne.

The ladies were in Aspen where Kyle had arranged a fun day. But Erika, Dorit, and Diana Jenkins didn’t join the group because of the major drama that occurred the night before. Since Dorit didn’t accompany Kyle, the latter was hurt and ended up in tears.

Seeing Kyle’s breakdown, fans questioned her empathy for her sister Kathy Hilton, and criticized her for caring more about Dorit than about her own sibling.

Kyle is way more upset about having a conflict with Dorit than she is about having conflict with Kathy. #RHOBH

Kyle's sister Kathy Hilton was hurt when Lisa Rinna ordered Kendall Jenner’s 818 tequila, instead of Kathy’s brand. She even expressed her frustration to her sister, but the latter didn’t want to get involved in the situation at the time.

Viewers slammed Kyle Richards for crying over Dorit Kemsley and calling her “like a family,” but ignoring her own sister’s feelings.

"Kim was right about Kyle all along": Fans criticize Kyle’s behavior towards Kathy in RHOBH

After Lisa Rinna kept on talking about Kendall Jenner’s tequila, Kathy decided to leave. She shared her frustration with Kyle, who advised her to not let Lisa’s behavior ruin her whole mood.

In a confessional, Kyle said:

“Once Kathy is mad, it’s hard to turn that around.”

Kathy was seen to be more upset because Kyle didn’t say a word to Lisa. Fans also criticized Kyle for not supporting her sister but making a whole deal out of Dorit and Erika not joining her for a fun day.

Many pointed out that Kyle's sister Kim, a former RHOBH cast member, was right about her. Kim was once involved in a fight with Kyle over the fact that the latter didn't support her.

Take a look at fans’ reactions:

All of these tears Kyle has for Dorit because she is ‘likeeee faaaamily’ to her. Where are these passionate tears for her ACTUAL sister Kathy?! I swear with each #RHOBH episode…we are all learning that Kim was right about Kyle all along.. 🥴🤷🏽‍♀️

RHOBH Season 12 Episode 18 ended on a cliffhanger

Episode 18 of RHOBH Season 12 was majorly focused on Kyle Richards having a breakdown because Dorit Kemsley took Erika Jayne’s side.

The group was seen divided into two teams: One included Erika, Dorit and Diana, while the other had Kyle, Kathy, Lisa, Sutton Stracke, Crystal Kung Minkoff, Garcelle Beauvais, and Sheree Zampino.

Erika was called out for not showing empathy for the victims and their families involved in her ex-husband’s legal case. While the entire episode revolved around the feud between her and the rest of the ladies, it ended with Lisa throwing shade at Kathy via text messages.

Towards the end of the episode, Lisa, Kyle and Kathy were seen going to a club in Aspen. The scene then cut to "several hours later" and showed Lisa sending out text messages that read:

“I got in a sprinter with Kathy. And she had an absolutely melt down I’ve never heard or seen anything like it in my life. Anger screaming throwing things crying. Im locked in my room.”

In response, the recipient said, "OMG."

Lisa responded:

“The hatred that just came out of her towards her sister…I’m speechless.”

Post this, the episode displayed Kathy’s response to Lisa:

“Silence is golden, I am staying silent.”
Are they trying to make us hate Kathy and just trying to deflect off of Erika Jayne hating the orphans, diana and rinna being horrible humans, kyle being a sh*t stirrer and Dorit and Mauricio's weird relationship? #RHOBH #WWHL

The show then ended on a cliffhanger, with a “to be continued” message displayed on screen.

In the mid-season trailer for RHOBH Season 12, Lisa was seen talking about Kathy’s meltdown to the group. The clip further showed Kyle and Lisa confronting Kathy.

RHOBH Season 12 Episode 19 will air next on Wednesday, September 21, 2022, on Bravo at 8 pm ET. Viewers can watch the latest episode on Bravo’s site or check local listings for the show’s schedule.
