Back at it! With her nemesis gone from the show, Kyle Richards is ready to return to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
"Yes, it’s coming back and I’m coming back," Richards, 45, told Us Weekly exclusively at the Julius Jr. Toy Launch event at the London Hotel in West Hollywood on Tuesday evening, June 24. "I feel good. I’m looking forward to a new season. I think it’s going to be a really good season and I’m excited. I’m curious, like the viewer, to see things unfold and see what the relationships are like."
Veteran star Richards, who added that her sister Kim is coming back to the show as well, said she has mixed feelings about the departures of former cast members Joyce Giraud and Carlton Gebbia.
"Let’s just say I’m 50/50," the actress told Us. "One is fine with me and the other one, well, you know! Joyce and I got along very well and Carlton was never nice to me."
"She went out of her way not to be," Richards added of Gebbia. "We were never friends so there is no love lost there."
Richards and noted Wiccan Gebbia famously feuded during season four of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and squared off during the reunion show.
Richards went on to add that she didn't know why Gebbia seemingly had it out for her. "I couldn’t tell," she said. "None of us have ever done that on the show. We have been authentic and if it was that, maybe that’s why the audience didn’t respond to her? It was so out of left field and I’m not going to miss her."
"I didn’t know her before [the show] and I haven’t seen her since," she continued to Us.
As to who will be replacing Gebbia on the next season, which "is just starting" to film, Richards shot down rumors that her outspoken pal Faye Resnick (a frequent, inflammatory guest star on past seasons) would be coming onboard, telling Us, "I know that’s not true."
