The 52-year-old television personality gave an update on her friendship with Frankel during Wednesday's episode of Watch What Happens Live.
Richards, who stars on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, was asked why she and Frankel unfollowed each other on Instagram.
"Oh, that's a good question," Richards said. "She unfollowed me and I was like, well, why do I want to follow someone who doesn't follow me? So I just said, well, I don't need to keep up with her either, then."
Richards said she and Frankel are still in touch.
"We still talk and text. We text each other. I don't know, she just unfollowed a lot of people," she said.
Richards was also asked about the status of her friendship with RHOBH alum Lisa Vanderpump, who left the show in Season 9 after clashing with Richards and her co-stars. WWHL host Andy Cohen stepped in to answer the question.
"Do a Google search, because it's every week there's -- they're circling each other in Beverly Hills. They keep showing up at the same restaurants and it's a lot, it's a whole lot of stuff. But I'll summarize it and say, no they have not spoken," Cohen said of Richards and Vanderpump.
