REAL Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards has shocked castmates by revealing she once dated President Donald Trump.
In an E! preview clip of the upcoming reunion episode, host Andy Cohen questioned the 52-year-old on her romantic history with the President of the United States.
“One thing I have to ask you before we get onto everything that happened this season. I heard a rumour that you once dated Donald Trump — is that true?” Cohen asked, before the story was confirmed by Richards.
All of the Housewives appeared to be taken aback by her response — including her castmate and sister, Kyle Richards.
“Let’s not get into it,” the reality TV star said. “I had dinner with him. I had dinner with Donald.”
Co-star Lisa Vanderpump pressed her on whether or not the pair had had sex, but Richards refused to elaborate.
“Let’s just leave it at this. I don’t want to talk about the President.”
Earlier this year, Love Actually actress Emma Thompson revealed she’d once received a similar offer from Mr. Trump — and turned him down.
“He asked me out once,” she told an audience on a Swedish news show.
She explained that she had been in the US filming 1998 release Primary Colors and that she had just had divorce papers come through from her marriage to Kenneth Branagh, which lasted from 1989 to 1995.
“The phone rings in my trailer, which it’s never done before, so it’s like a moose had just entered my trailer,” Thompson said.
“I lift up the phone, ‘Hi, it’s Donald Trump here.’ I said, ‘Really? Can I help you?’
“He said, ‘I wonder if I could offer you some accommodation in one of my Trump Towers, they’re really comfortable. I think we would get on very well, maybe we could have dinner some time.’”
“I didn’t know what to do with myself. I was on my own and I just said, ‘Erm, I’ll get back to you.’”
She said that she had not met up with him, but joked: “I wish I had, think of the stories.”
