The famously feuding sisters were both in attendance at Kris Jenner’s annual Christmas Eve party. In an Instagram ominously captioned “Twas the night before Christmas…”, Richards, Hilton and their mutual friend, Faye Resnick, are smiling (not quite with their eyes) at the camera.
A source revealed to E! Online that the photo was less of a heartwarming reunion, and more of a photo-op: “The photo was staged. Notice they’re not even standing next to each other. It was an attempt to make everything look better than it actually is, but things are not smoothed over. They only saw each other briefly at the party.”
The source went on to explain that poor Faye, caught literally in the middle of the two sisters, is friends with both but “much closer to Kyle.”
According to E! Online, the drama goes back to issues between Kyle’s husband, Mauricio, and Kathy’s husband, Rick. “Rick and his team wouldn’t make Mauricio a partner, even after years of working there and a lot of success. So he left. Now, Mauricio is not welcome at any Hilton events. It puts Kyle in a terrible position because she always has to choose between her husband and her older sister.” Perhaps as a result, Kyle was disinvited to her niece Nicky Hilton’s wedding — then eventually reinvited. Are the sisters attempting to mend their relationship in 2016?
