A month after entering a facility for alcohol abuse and other problems, Kim Richards is still in rehab and doing well, her sister Kyle says.

“Yes, she’s still there. She’s doing really well. We’re all really proud of her,” Kyle says of her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills costar in an interview with the Huffington Post.

Kyle, 42, says her relationship with Kim, 47, has improved lately, despite what viewers might think.

“[Having] our relationship being played out on TV is difficult; people dissecting it and thinking they know us is very difficult at times,” she says. “I’m happy to say we’re in a much better place right now.”

Kyle also gives an update on Taylor Armstrong, whose husband Russell committed suicide in August. Taylor is doing “much better,” Kyle says. “She’s getting stronger every day.”

Asked about her biggest regret on the show, Kyle doesn’t hesitate. She points to her mean behavior during the “Game Night” episode that aired back in October.

“Most people would think it would be [the argument] in the back of the limo with my sister, which was very painful, but that was what I was feeling and even though people didn’t understand or get that … I had to own that,” she says. “But ‘Game Night’ just wasn’t me and it wasn’t true to myself, so I was very upset about that.”
