Kyle Richards recently gave a great interview to Parade.com. She discusses the current filming season be sure to click through to the whole article. Here are a few excerpts where she discusses new housewives, old friends and how her kids deal with the cameras. It really is a lovely article.
What can fans expect with Lisa Rinna on the show this season?
“You know what, you have to tune in and see! There’s a lot going on with that.”
Can you tease any of the drama?
“It’s still early in the season. A lot of relationships are shifting and changing, so it’s kind of hard to say right now. We are currently still filming now, we’re right smack in the middle of it.”
Where do your relationships with the other women on the show stand right now?
“Each one is very different. Some I’m still working on mending things, others I’m getting closer to. Each one is so individual and things change on a day-to-day basis.”
What do your daughters think about growing up on reality television?
“They don’t really pay attention. It’s kind of funny. Portia doesn’t know the difference because she turned two on the show and the other girls don’t really care. Sometimes they’ll show up, if they walk in the kitchen and the cameras are there, they’ll hang out sometimes and other times they’ll just turn around and walk out. Their friends don’t care at all. They’ve been with the same friends since, like, Mommy and Me, they’ve been in the same schools, and none of those kids are impressed or care. And I like that too. They don’t have aspirations to be in television, so I think they have a healthy relationship with reality television.”
Do you have relationships with the women on the other shows?
” I know them and we meet each other at the Bravo events, but I don’t really see them. The only one I spend more time with is NeNe Leakes. We’re friends and Bethenny Frankel has been my friend for like 22 years—even though she’s not technically a Housewife anymore, she’s been my friend with many, many years.”
Do you think Kyle knows Nene is using her? It doesn’t appear so to me.
