Kyle Richards stopped by The Wendy Williams Show and spilled some piping hot Real Housewives of Beverly Hills tea.
In the interview, Kyle opened up about those rampant season 9 casting rumors and so much more!
According to Reality Blurb, Wendy discussed Kyle’s husband, Mauricio Umansky, recently being named the hottest Housewives husband by In Touch, then asked if the husbands get paid to appear on Real Housewives.
“Just the wives [get paid],” Kyle explained making it clear that the husbands and the children don’t get paid for appearing on the Real Housewives.
Speaking of RHOBH, Kyle shut down the rumor that Dorit Kemsley and Erika Girardi are leaving the show, saying “it’s just a rumor.”
When asked by Wendy which of the two she would rather see go Kyle took the high road and said neither.
“I’m going to say this and it’s not trying to be PC. I actually like all the women in the cast. I know Dorit and I clashed this season, but she’s a good person, and I get along with Erika, and I would not want anyone to leave,” she said.
As for season 9, Kyle played coy about her own return and says Bravo hasn’t talked to the cast about it yet.
“They haven’t talked to us about it yet for the next season. We’ll see,” she said.
Meanwhile, Kyle also discussed the December burglary on her home saying that she blames herself for being too open on social media.
“That was a big mistake,” Kyle said about sharing everything on social media. “I think [it was an inside job] because I did post on social media. Which now, I really have to think twice about that. [They knew] I was away with all my family and my dogs were in training. I might as well have put a bow on everything.”
Adding, that it was very difficult to move on from the burglary.
“It was really difficult to get through because I couldn’t get it out of my head. I felt scared,” she shared. “I’m past it now. I know it was because people knew that I was away. Now I got my five dogs there, and my alarm system.”
Kyle says now she’s able to laugh off the incident and that she’s more careful about what she posts online but admits it doesn’t really matter since “there’s nothing left to take.”
The topic of conversation then turned to Kyle’s new show American Woman, which is loosely based on the life of her mom Kathleen Richards.
While Kyle may be okay with sharing her life on TV the idea of her sharing private memories from her childhood on TV didn’t sit well with Kyle’s sisters Kathy and Kim.
However, Kyle insists she didn’t spill any family secrets on the show and says the show is merely inspired by her life growing up.
“It’s not autobiographical. I’ve explained that to [Kathy]. It’s inspired by. It’s only stories of my own.I’m not here to tell anyone else’s stories. Not Kim’s, not Kathy’s. Only my own from my perspective, and it’s a fictionalized version of it. I’m only coming from a place of love and the utmost respect for my mom,” Kyle explained.
I’m pretty sure the adult kids on RHOC and RHONJ got paid when they appeared on the show. Anyway, I suspected that the robbery at Kyle’s home was an inside job. I think the ring that is breaking into the celebrity homes near Kyle have a knowledge of where the celebrities will be and what items of value they have from Instagram. It’s a shame but that’s how the Bling Ring did it as well back in the mid-2000’s. I’m surprised to hear Bravo hasn’t reached out about season 9 yet considering they should start filming any day now.
Thoughts on Kyle’s interview? Do you think Kyle will return for season 9? Are you surprised Bravo hasn’t reached out to the Housewives about season 9 yet? Would you rather see Dorit or Erika leave RHOBH? Did you watch American Woman last night? Sound off below!
