Is it weird that I’m basically zero surprised that The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills‘ Kim Richards went on a date with Donald Trump? For some reason, that just makes sense to me. I can’t be alone in this.
Anyway, that happened. It came out during Part 2 of the RHOBH reunion, which is airing next week. In the teaser for the episode, host/Bravo deity Andy Cohen teases Richards, saying, “I heard a rumor you once dated Donald Trump.”
Richards tries to hide it, exclaiming, “What?!” in mock horror, but all the other women giggling around her kind of give it away, so she cops to it.
“Yes,” she says, looking genuinely uncomfortable in a way that only a woman who may have seen Donald Trump naked can look. “I had a dinner with him. I had dinner with Donald.”
Richards isn’t giving up too much, though. Lisa Vanderpump immediately took it to the dark place and pressed for some more sordid details, asking, “Sex or not? Did you see him naked?”
Somehow, all the women react to that idea by laughing rather than recoiling in horror, which is all I can do with that image burned into my brain for the rest of time.
From her answer, though, it definitely sounds like Richards (God help her) did the hanky panky with the Donald, and suddenly so much about her life of questionable decision making makes sense. You don’t just bounce back from something like sex with Donald Trump, the poor woman.
“I don’t want to get into it!” she said. “I don’t want to talk about the president.”
While we wouldn’t wish being married to Trump on anyone, Cohen did point out the real missed opportunity in this whole train wreck.
“Wow, Kim could have been our first lady!” he said.
What a world this could have been.
