In an unexpected twist for 2023, Rihanna, a devoted fan of “Real Housewives,” found herself receiving a nearly $900 hat from Kyle Richards during a chance encounter in Aspen, Colorado.
The pop sensation, along with her partner A$AP Rocky and their two sons, was shopping in a private room at the upscale western apparel store Kemo Sabe on Thursday. Coincidentally, Kyle Richards from “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” was also present at the store, shopping with her daughters and her estranged husband, Mauricio Umansky.

Rihanna reportedly only visited the store for Kyle Richards
According to sources, when an employee informed Kyle Richards that Rihanna was present at the store, Richards expressed her desire to meet her. Rihanna, in response, reportedly exclaimed, “F–k yes!”
After both families spent almost an hour mingling, the reality star presented the “Work” hitmaker, with an $895 turquoise beaver hat. As per TMZ’s sources, Rihanna had only been visiting the store because she had seen the Bravo celebrity go there on the show.
Kemo Sabe holds a special place in RHOBH history, serving as the backdrop for the infamous falling-out between Lisa Rinna and Kathy Hilton, Kyle Richards’ sister. TMZ reports that the store was closed for a VIP shopping event, while also capturing images of the two celebrities inside.
