Kyle Richards’ Daughter Sophia Tests Positive For COVID-19 as RHOBH Star Confirms Illness, Plus How Family is “Staying in Isolation” as Kyle and Sophia Recover: “I Can’t Wait to Hug Them”

Kyle Richards and her daughter Sophia Umansky are both recovering in isolation after testing positive for COVID-19.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star confirmed she was infected with the virus on Sunday after reports shared that she, Dorit Kemsley, and Kyle’s older sister Kathy Hilton all tested positive, promptly shutting down production on season 11 of the show.

Kyle also shared that she was separated from her family after being diagnosed, but her 20-year-old daughter Sophia still unfortunately caught the virus as well.

“I love these people so much ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️,” Kyle began in her post shared on Sunday. “Some of you may have heard I have COVID. I got it after these photos were taken. Since I was diagnosed I have been separated from my family in order to keep them healthy. Unfortunately , 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 🥰.”

Reports of the RHOBH production halt (also following a crew member’s COVID diagnosis) noted that “everyone [was] told to quarantine for 14 days” and that they “have no idea when they’ll start up again.”

While the RHOBH cast and crew are technically in the dark about production, ET Online also confirmed that filming should pick back up after the holidays.

On the bright side, California is expected to receive 327,000 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine in mid-December (via KTLA). This will hopefully curb the virus a bit for the state even with just a small percentage of the population initially receiving immunizations.
