It’s confirmed: Kim Richards is an absolute legend. On last night’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion, Kim made reunion history by creating one of the most dramatic — and awkward — moments when she gifted Lisa Rinna back the bunny she gave to celebrate the birth of Kim’s grandson. Following last night’s drama, we honestly think that a) Kim deserves an Emmy for her reunion appearance and b) that it’s time to bring her back as a full-time Housewife.
All season long, Rinna has been discussing Kim’s sobriety (or a lack thereof) to basically anyone that would listen but on last night’s RHOBH, Kim finally got the last laugh. In an epic moment, she gave back the bunny and it resulted in a single tear falling down Lisa’s face before she stormed off the set and went backstage to talk shit with Eileen Davidson. Kyle Richards’ face pretty much said it all, but also had us questioning if she is the RHOBH cast member using drugs. (We kid, we kid!)
#BunnyGate is getting mixed reaction on social media but one thing is for sure: Kim delivered the must-see moment of this year’s reunion. While she’s definitely not innocent in the drama with Rinna, Lisa is the one that has been stirring the pot all season long and the one who decided to use Kim as a storyline in the first place. While immature, giving back the bunny was Kim’s payback.
So, Bravo, over to you: It’s time to make Kim a full-time cast member again and yes, that means Rinna must return too. While things need to be mixed up for season 8, our dream RHOBH cast would be as follows: Kim, Kyle, Rinna, Lisa Vanderpump, and two new Housewives, with Eden Sassoon in a supporting role.
P.S. While we know it’s highly unlikely, how cool would it be for RHOBH to be nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Unstructured Reality Program (the official category)? We can see Kim’s acceptance speech in our heads right now.
