Where Kyle and Justin Stand Today

The latest update on Kyle and Justin's friendship came when he took to Instagram on January 22 to share photos of him and Kyle embracing at a recent event. "Til the wheels fall off," he sweetly captioned the post. 

Kyle then responded with a crying emoji, heart emoji, and prayer hands emoji. 

Elsewhere in the comments, the pair received support and kind words from The Real Housewives of Miami's Guerdy AbrairaThe Real Housewives of Potomac's Candiace Dillard Bassett, and The Real Housewives of Orange County's Heather Dubrow.

How Kyle and Justin Became Friends

Back in June of 2022, Justin chatted with TODAY about how he first met Kyle and how she eventually played a big role in encouraging him to live as his authentic self. 

"My first job was working for Kyle Richards," Justin shared about working as her assistant. "She was on [TheReal Housewives of Beverly Hills. I started with her from Season 1, and during Season 2, someone had a 'Gays and Gals' party. She sat me down and she said, 'I really want you to come with me, but I know you’re not out to your family. And if you do this, the schtick is up.'"

Kyle then offered Justin her full support, as he recalled her saying, "If you do decide to do this, I will be with you every step of the way." 

Beyond helping him gain the confidence to call his mom, Justin said that Kyle's support ultimately allowed him to feel comfortable pursuing his dream of being in front of the camera. The rest was history!

Kyle Richards' RHOBH Friendships

Are Kyle and Sutton on good terms? 

Not exactly. In fact, Sutton revealed on the January 15 episode of New York Living that Kyle recently "took a break" from her.

“So, I guess we’re still on a break,” Sutton added. “She didn’t tell me we were taking a break, but I kind of noticed that we weren’t talking.” 

That said, she also noted that she did reach out to Kyle earlier this month to wish her a happy birthday. And while she didn’t provide details about the exchange, Sutton confirmed that Kyle had "responded."

Where Kyle and Dorit Stand

Dorit has expressed on more than one occasion that she feels like she and Kyle aren't as close as they used to be, but Kyle recently addressed this by suggesting that Dorit is "exaggerating."

"I love Dorit, but it's not like, you know, my friends, we'll go to the gym, we’ll work out together, we hike together," Kyle added. "She doesn’t do that kind of stuff."
