Following a family tragedy, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Kyle Richards visited her friend, Ali Landry, who lost two family members earlier this month. According to an Us Weekly report, Ali's father-in-law, Juan Manuel Gomez Fernandez, and her brother-in-law, Juan Manuel Gomez Monteverde, were killed after being kidnapped in Mexico. They were reportedly held for ransom for 16 days, and despite a ransom being paid out to the kidnappers, last weekend their bodies were found in the remote town of Pueblo Viejo located in the Veracruz region. Kyle paid her respects to the actress and her director husband, Alejandro Gomez Monteverde, on Thursday (September 25).
