Unfortunately, Kyle Richards‘ home was burglarized. There are some people who don’t feel too sad for her because she is a Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member and just assumed that she could replace whatever was stolen. Just because someone has it worse, it doesn’t mean that your problems aren’t bad.
Obviously, Kyle is in a way better financial position than most of us normal folks, but she also lost some sentimental things as well. Kyle opened up about the burglary in a recent interview.
Kyle told Bravo’s The Daily Dish that “everything” was stolen. Aside from material goods, Kyle’s passport was taken. What if someone tries to steal her identity?
Kyle shared, “I keep telling myself, these are just things, they are. But it still really hurts a lot. My mom left me things she had collected her whole life, passed those onto me, and I wanted to pass those things on to my four daughters. And every time I buy something or I’ve been given something, I think, ‘Well, these are gonna be for my daughters one day.’ Really, every gift I’ve ever been given, everything my mother left me, everything that I worked my butt off to buy for myself, all of it has been taken.”
Of course Kyle can replace some of the things that were stolen, but she explained why she’s not comfortable doing so. She shared, “I’m looking at things differently in this moment. I don’t know how I’m gonna feel in six months or a year. I really don’t know. But the thought of going out and spending a lot of money on a handbag or something like that now just is something that’s not appealing to me because now I have this negative connotation with it. So I don’t know. I don’t know what I’m gonna do moving forward.”
She also justified her decision to continue the family vacation in Aspen instead of heading home to California: “The last place I wanted to be was home at that moment. So I decided to stay in Aspen with my family and try to focus on the fact that we have each other and we’re happy and healthy and enjoy our vacation together because there was nothing I could do at home in L.A. The detectives had handled everything. And everything was gone.
Kyle shared a lesson that she learned: “So I think that in moving forward, I don’t know if I’ll be sharing on social media like I do now, ‘Oh, I’m going here, I’m going there.’ It changes how you think about everything.” She could just post her vacation photos after the fact. Just because it’s called Instagram, that doesn’t mean that she needs to share updates as they happen.
