Kyle Richards is slowly but surely repairing her various fragmented relationships on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
The 43-year-old reality star explains that she's starting with her sister Kim, 48, who entered rehab for the third time earlier this year.
"I think I started off in a better place this season, for sure. Especially with my sister Kim, which was the most important thing to me," Richards, a married mother of four, told E! News. "We are much better now, but you're going to see us struggling a bit. In the beginning, especially, it doesn't look so great."
Kyle admits that on the show it's sometimes difficult to discern her good intentions, particularly when it comes to her sister Kim.
"When I watch the show, I do think, 'Well, she's going to see that I was being honest here,'" Kyle told Us. "But you never know how someone's going to take it."
"Brandi and I are in a much better place. It could not get much worse, that's for sure!" Kyle laughed. "I'm getting to know her better and she's getting to know me better, but we definitely clash at times. She sometimes says things that I find to be below the belt or offensive, but I've tried to deal with it in a different manner."
