"Coming back to Insta (after a much needed break) to wish my beautiful friend [Kyle Richards] a very happy birthday!" Dorit shared on Instagram on Tuesday (January 11). She added in the post, "I’ll be back to posting soon, I promise. I just needed some time away to focus on family and myself and all things important to me; and it’s been very helpful and healthy for me. Love you all (well most of you, the nice ones anyway!) lol!!!"

Speaking of Kyle's birthday, Dorit did make sure to share a sweet message for her bestie: "I love you so much Kyle and I have the best time with you! I love how we laugh until we need to pee, can talk about anything, support one another, bond over the love [of] our families and the love of Hermès (and all things designer), and I love that our hubbies are besties too. May all of your wishes come true today and always. Love you!"

Kyle's birthday was actually the perfect occasion for the other RHOBH ladies to pop up on Instagram this week as well. "HAPPY BIRTHDAY [Kyle.] You are hilarious, we love you so much! Hope this year brings you everything your heart desires! You deserve the world and more! You give so much joy and love to everyone you touch," Lisa Rinna shared in her own message.

Sutton Stracke wrote in a separate post, "Happiest birthdays to this beauty [Kyle]. From chilly to sunny you put a smile on my face." 

Erika Girardi shared a message as well, writing, "Happy birthday [Kyle]!!! The heart and soul of RHOBH."

Kyle's big sister, Kathy Hilton, also posted a message for her sibling: "Happy Birthday to my best friend [and] sister. To another trip around the sun! I love you Doogie!"

In addition the current RHOBH cast, Kyle's BFF, RHOBH alum Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave, also posted a tribute to her pal: "The Shirley to my Laverne. The Lucy to my Ethel. The Ted to my Coach Beard. But most importantly… the Keeks to my Ted (and Terry when needed). Wishing you the happiest birthday [Kyle]! Another year for you to show the world what you got. You are truly the best friend a girl could ask for. Can’t wait to celebrate with ya! [Heart you]."
