Exclusive: Kyle Richards — What Scene of ‘Real Housewives’ Got All Too Real?
Check out what Kyle has to say about how to find a Mauricio (Hint: Girls, don’t be slutty) and how the show affected her in a very real way this year:
What is something new viewers and fans will learn about you in this book?
So much! I didn’t write this for people to learn about me, I wanted to share what I’ve learned in life and what has gotten me where I am today — my relationship with my husband, my children — just juggling it all and looking and feeling your best. I really want [readers] to walk away with with full confidence and to have the tools they need to have the best marriage as possible!
For single girls like myself … how do we get a Mauricio?!
You know, I really was raised in a house filled with women. I had the best education possible. I would sit and lay in bed with my mom, my sisters, my sisters friends. They would come in from a date and say, ‘This is what I did, this is what I said’ and my mom would be like ‘You just blew it! He’s never going to call you again.’ And she was always right!
You have to give an example of “one of those things” you girls did wrong…
Sleeping with someone too soon! That’s like finito. I made my husband wait a long time. Also, calling a guy and saying “Why didn’t you call me?” Oh my God I would rather chop my finger off! It’s just really important to play your cards right. When you are looking to find your husband, you are looking to fill a job position. This is the most important job in the world to me, this is going to be the man I spend the rest of my life with and who is going to be the father of my children. You gotta get it right!
It seems like a Hollywood marriage ends every day, how do you keep yours a priority in this industry?
We make sure if we have a heavy schedule, socially speaking, we are home more nights than out. Or we take our kids out with us. That’s our rule. We do what we have to do.
Looking back at the second season of Real Housewives, what are your overall impressions?
Season two has been very emotional to live through, and to watch it is difficult at times. Honestly we did have a lot fun — like Hawaii, we all laughed! Although my sister and I had our moments we did have a lot of fun.
How emotional is it for you to relive moments with Kim when it finally airs? For example, the scene with you two this past week at Sur looked pretty intense.
Oh my gosh, it’s so hard for me to watch that. That and the scene where I bumped into my sister at the store. In the reality world it’s rare to have that real moment where you bump in unexpectedly, and we did. [Kim] was there looking for a dress for the opening credits of the show and I happened to bump into her there.
So when something like that is about to air on national television, do you talk each other through it?
The last few episodes my sister isn’t watching. I want her to move forward, not look back. She’s not watching. She did see that episode, and we both cried. It’s sad.
Did you consult her, or any of the Housewives for that matter when writing this book?
No, I really just have started books before, then stopped, then started. I’m determined now and I just got it done in the night when I would get it up and write, or on my blackberry and email it to myself. I consulted my mother above!
There are a lot of rumors out there, but if you have it your way how will season 3 turn out?
If it gets picked up, or when, assuming it does, I love these women. We have our moments but I care about all of them. As far as I know [the main] women are back. If it’s not broke, don’t fix it!
