New York isn’t the only Real Housewives cast to be impacted by COVID-19. The production of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was shut down in November 2020 after a few crew members tested positive for the virus. Kyle Richards, Dorit Hemsley and new “friend” Kathy Hilton all contracted COVID-19. And when Richards confirmed her diagnosis in December 2020 she wrote “Since I was diagnosed I have been separated from my family in order to keep them healthy. Unfortunately, [my daughter] Sophia also got it. We will stay in isolation until it’s safe to see the family and others again. I can’t wait to hug them.”
And now a cast member from the New York Housewives has contracted the virus as well.
