Kyle Richards Reunites With Sister Kathy Hilton After Family Drama — Are They Still Feuding?

Despite smiling and posing for a photo with their mutual friend Faye Resnick at Kris Jenner's annual Christmas Eve party last week, it's been reported that Kyle Richards and Kathy Hilton are still not speaking to each. Find out why below!

"The photo was staged. Notice they're not even standing next to each other. It was an attempt to make everything look better than it actually is, but things are not smoothed over," a source of Kyle and Kathy tells E! News. "They only saw each other briefly at the party."

Faye happened to be caught in the middle literally, not figuratively. While she is friends with both siblings, the source explains that she is "much closer to Kyle."

Meanwhile, former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards is on good terms with her sister Kathy. "Kathy and Kim are fine," the source tells E! News. "Kathy had Kim and her children over for Christmas this weekend, but not Kyle or her family." Posing with her own children, Kim shared an Instagram photo of her "amazing, beautiful family" celebrating inside Kathy and Rick Hilton's home.

Kyle and Kathy's drama dates back to June, when Kyle was disinvited then re-invited to her niece Nicky Hilton's wedding to banking heir James Rothschild. While Kathy has not publicly explained her side of the story, Kyle has said on episodes of Bravo's The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills that Kathy was upset about a deal she made with TV Land to produce a sitcom inspired by her childhood. "As mother of the bride, Kathy had a major say on the guest list. Nicky initially invited Kyle, but then Kathy called and uninvited her. She literally told her not to show up. But Kyle insisted that if Farrah, her oldest daughter, was a bridesmaid and Portia, her youngest, was a flower girl then she should be there," the source tells E! News. "Kathy relented but still said Kyle's other two daughters and Mauricio [Umansky] were not welcome." After some debate on Kyle's part, she decided to attend the wedding with Farrah and Portia.

However the feud goes further than that. Apparently, it all went down years ago, when Kyle's husband Mauricio left Hilton & Ryland, Rick's real estate company, to start The Agency. "Kathy and Rick have no contact or relationship with Mauricio," the source says.

"Rick and Mauricio haven't spoken in about five years." So, what happened? As one insider previously told E! News, "Rick and his team wouldn't make Mauricio a partner, even after years of working there and a lot of success. So he left. Now, Mauricio is not welcome at any Hilton events. It puts Kyle in a terrible position because she always has to choose between her husband and her older sister." Another insider offered a different take, saying, "Mauricio went behind Rick's back when he started his business. Rick did everything for Mauricio to get him started, he gave him clients, he introduced him to people. And then when Mauricio set up his own company, he did it covertly and informed Rick via email."

Apparently many have tried to bring the families back together, including Faye. In fact, she went so far as to ask both Mauricio and Rick to walk her down the aisle at her wedding in October. Says the source, "Talk about awkward!"
