"So [Kim] won't be back next season? That's safe to assume?" DeGeneres asked.
"I don't know. I don't know yet," Richards replied.
According to RadarOnline, Bravo's January 20 broadcast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' season finale -- which featured Kyle revealing Kim's alleged alcoholism and disclosed that Kim rejected her famly's attempt to convince her to enter a rehab program -- humiliated Kim and is the reason she decided to forgo The Ellen DeGeneres Show appearance.
"I wish the best for Kim, I do want to say that," added The Real Housewives star Taylor Armstrong, who also feuded with Kim during the season's production.
"And we get along more one-on-one. Put us in a group and it turns into some odd dynamic with our personalities and we just start to clash. But when we're alone, we're actually really good together."
