Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards didn’t follow her pre-reunion ritual ahead of today’s taping. Instead, she underwent something a bit more painful hours after her niece, Paris Hilton, shaded her as “so unkind” over how she treated her mom Kathy Hilton on the show.
On Thursday, in a video initially shared by her former co-star and friend, Teddi Mellencamp, Kyle, who typically schedules a relaxing massage before reunion tapings, was seen lying on a couch as a man gave her a new tattoo on the inside of her ankle — her third piece of ink art in recent weeks.
“Unbothered,” Teddi wrote in a hashtag in the caption of her September 8 clip in which Kyle wore a white tank top and blue pants.
Teddi also confirmed it was a man named Cacho, a tattoo artist in Los Angeles, who was behind Kyle’s new tattoo.
Following Teddi’s post, Kyle re-shared her video as she wondered why she decided to forgo her usual ritual.
“I couldn’t just get a massage like I have for past reunions?” she asked in her own caption.
Kyle’s new ink comes less than two weeks after she gave fans their first look at a couple of new tattoos she got on the backs of her forearms, one of which featured a heart and another with the Roman numerals “XVIII.”
The new tattoo also came just hours after Kyle appeared on Watch What Happens Live on Wednesday night, where she admitted she wasn’t looking forward to today’s taping at all, especially due to her recent drama with sister Kathy Hilton.
“It’s gonna be difficult with my sister,” Kyle admitted on the WWHL: After Show. “We went through some hard times on the show. I had some issues with Erika and [Lisa Rinna] towards the end and I had some apologizing to do to [Garcelle Beauvais], which I already did.”
“I probably am the least, next to season five, this is the reunion I’m the least looking forward to. [It’s] the one I’m dreading the most,” she added.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 12 airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on Bravo.
