As with all the women in Bravo's housewives franchises, the ladies of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills aren't just reality television stars. They have other gigs, y'all!
The troubled Kim Richards is often touted as the series' resident child star, however her sister Kyle Splits McGee Richards also was–and is–quite the actress. Kyle appeared on Little House on the Prairie from 1975 through 1982, and she had a recurring role on ER (that I totally don't remember, and I was obsessed with that show. Whatever). I will say I do remember a young Kyle from the creepiest movie Disney ever produced, Watcher In the Woods, where she starred alongside the legendary Bette Davis…does anyone remember this gem? NERAK!! No? Well perhaps you recently saw her in a Lifetime movie (the name escapes me) where Kyle plays a pill pushing grifter who meets her demise in a giant freezer thanks to Charisma Carpenter. Anyone? Well, if you missed Kyle in all of those wonderful acting vehicles, fear not…she's hitting the small screen once again!
Now, there are so many different tabloid rumors swirling about the uber-wealthy housewife, from her crumbling friendships to her faltering empire to her headline-making divorce. Are things ever going to go back to normal for the woman I once considered to be too down-to-earth for the over-the-top franchise?
Good gravy, these Housewives never quit, do they? I swear, if someone were filming the drama in my life, it would be almost as ridiculous. "Blogger forgot to put her trash out tonight…and she's messy! Will she be able to make it without requesting another city rolling garbage can for the street? Or will she be forced to live with the stench for yet another week? Tune in to find out what happens." I mean, seriously?
Tonight, we've got news from the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Well duh. At least one of them is always doing something, aren't they? This news may actually be a bit tame. Thank goodness for small favors, right?
Look out world, yet another Housewife may be getting her own show! I guess that is going to happen as the women war with each other…instead of watching everyone coexist in a Bravo hour, we’ll be forced to watch fifteen different spin-offs to see all of our favorite drama queens.
I’ll be honest, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is the hardest show for me to watch, yet it’s also my favorite of the franchise. Adrienne Maloof and her husband Dr. Paul Nassif had my heart early on…they seem very down to earth to be on a show where the women eat diamonds and cocktail hour begins at breakfast. The RHOBH women are on another level from their Bravo counterparts. Maybe that is why it’s so hard to see some of our faves floundering in their personal lives.
Case in point? Adrienne and Paul. Their constant bickering was funny during the first season, but now, as we approach season 3, it’s become sad. It was no surprise when the news broke of the couple’s separation. The duo seems to love one another, but yet neither can miss the opportunity to call out the others’ weaknesses. That’s not good for a marriage, I guess.
