Kyle Richards says the RHOBH cast ‘were praying to get Covid’ so they could skip ‘brutal’ reunion

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards revealed that some of her castmates ‘were praying to get COVID’ in order to avoid taping the ‘brutal’ 11th season reunion last fall.

Appearing on Monday’s episode of This Morning, the 53-year-old former child star confessed: ‘We have to [tape them]. I mean, we sign up for this you know? You’ve got to carry it out until the very end.’

‘And for all of us, just the night before, the amount of stress, the amount of excuses – I think some were praying to get COVID or something so they don’t have to show up.’

‘I treat it like a boxing match. Like, I’m going into the ring, so I will have a massage, I will go to bed early, I literally have to meditate – anything I can get through that day.’

Adding: ‘Because we are on a sofa for 12 hours and it’s brutal, so awkward, and sometimes you don’t speak to each other after.’

Kyle – who’s attended all 12 reunions since 2010 – told co-hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby that despite the drama: ‘We’re sisters, it’s complicated but we’re blood, and we always come back together.’

‘None of our show is set up or scripted – producers chat with you and ask what’s going on in your life and things happen from there,’ Richards explained.

‘I had never intended to do a soap opera or reality show and here I am now.’

The Bravo-lebrity noted: ‘We film for four months and promote the rest of the year and have one month off.’

When Holly asked Richards if she learned that lesson the hard way, she replied: ‘I did.’

‘In the first seasons, you know, I would get provoked or I would look back and think, “I don’t like the way I reacted, that’s not who I am,”‘ The House actresswives of the North Pole recalled.

‘In the very beginning, and you learn real quickly to just always be yourself – the good, the bad, and the ugly.’
