Kim Richards isn't quite ready to face the ghosts of Housewives' past.
On Monday's all-new episode of Bravo's The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Kim drags her feet on confirming her attendance at sis Kyle's seance party. Why? It's -- wait for it -- against her religion!
"I'm afraid something might come to me and won't leave me," she argues in a preview clip from Monday's episode. "I don't understand the whole seance thing. It's against my religion. It really is. I don't do this sort of thing. I just don't."
Stunned by her sister's admission, Kyle is at a loss for words. Lisa VanderPump, on the other hand, has plenty to say in regards to Kim.
"This girl has an excuse for everything," VanderPump laments before launching into a spot-on impression of Kyle's sister, complete with her raspy drawl. "'I can't come because of my religion, I've got laryngitis, I'm moving...'" she intones as Kim. "What is this? It's constant!"
As Kim continues to drone on about why she can't come to the summoning of the spirits, Kyle starts to realize that her sister might just be worried about facing a deeper-rooted fear.
Says Kyle: "I think she's more scared of the women in this group than ghosts!"
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs Monday at 9 p.m. (EST) on Bravo.
