In a new interview, Richards opened up about her friendship with Vanderpump.

“Right now we’re OK. We’re a work in progress,” Richards told Haute Living, according to an Aug. 26 report by Wetpaint Entertainment. “There are a lot of feelings that have been hurt. In the past, I’ve felt that, and she’s felt that. We have a lot of working through things, but we’re OK."

Richards and Vanderpump's relationship first became strained during the third season of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills." By season four, things had gotten worse and Richards and Glanville were seen discussing Vanderpump's allegedly manipulative actions. The conversation didn't sit well with Vanderpump and became a main story line. Still, the women were able to put their differences aside during the show's hiatus and were soon seen at an event together.

As for the two new wives of the show, Lisa Rinna and Eileen Davidson, Richards knows them both.

“I’ve been friends with these two women [Lisa Rinna and Eileen Davidson]; one more than the other,” Richards continued. “It’s interesting to see because it’s not easy for them coming into this environment with all of us that have gone through so much together.”

Richards' comments come just one week after Radar Online reported there was "no drama" on the set of season five.

"The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" season five premieres this fall on Bravo.
