24th Annual GLAAD Media Awards

Work is a 24/7 gig when you're one of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.  It's just a never ending cycle of boutique openings and product promotion parties.  It has too be incredibly exhausting!  Don't believe me?  Just ask Splits Richards!

Kyle loves to talk about how much she never intends to get involved in other people's drama almost as much as she loves to remind viewers that she's often ganged up on and never picks sides.  Oh Kyle.  That's a good one…although I doubt Lisa Vanderpump would agree!


Kyle recently took a break from creating an "icktionary" of terms that parents can use to refer to nasty messes to speak to Wet Paint about all things RHOBH, reality friendships, and, of course, teaming with Clorox (product promotion, what?) for said "icktionary."  Girl's gotta pay the bills, right?


Do you feel like the show takes up a huge chunk of your time, or do you sort of make it work with everything else that you have going on?

I make it work with everything else. It does take a huge chunk. Like when I signed onto the show, I thought, “Oh, you shoot a couple months and done.” It’s a year-round job, a hundred percent. Absolutely, a year-round job. You’re shooting almost half the year, and then you’re on half the year. And while you’re not shooting, you’re doing press for it and writing blogs and doing interviews and appearances. So it’s all the time, but because it’s reality, I’ve been able to have my children with me.

Friendship with Lisa, how’s that going?

Surprisingly, not too bad considering that the reunion was terrible, and they all kind of attacked me, went after me. Even though I tried to stay out of the problems this season, but I tend to get over things quickly. I have an amazing husband, and I have four amazing kids, so I don’t want those things to get to me too much. At the time, I do, but then I get over it.

We have this conversation with friends all the time. If you and I had dinner, and every time it ended in tears, we’d stop having dinner, wouldn’t we?

Why do we keep coming back? People are like, “God, you guys have so many problems,” but also, we have a lot of fun. Shooting the show is actually a lot of fun. I love the crew. I love my producers. They become like family to you, and we have a lot of fun times. We travel. We have so much fun together, but then you’ll have that one moment that’s bad, and you’ll see that, for sure. So I love filming the show. I just don’t like watching it. I wish we could just film it and like put it on the shelf.

So it’s a bigger deal to us because it’s made into a bigger deal than it is?

No. Sometimes it’s worse, but I’m saying we also have a lot of great moments too. We do have fun. And when we have fun, we have a lot of fun.

But is it like, it’s a job. Pick up your bootstraps, go.

Well, I wish I was like that, but I’m far more sensitive than that. So it’s very difficult and there are a lot of tears and anxiety at times. It’s just frustrating when you can’t explain everything. Really, the only way to explain is tweet something. You can do interviews, but sometimes, there’s so much stuff out there that’s not true or people have the wrong idea. You can’t explain everything.

So, which is it, Kyle?  Are you extra sensitive or do you get over things super quickly?  Perhaps she's just extremely complex.  I, for one, am just happy to hear how she feels about explosive poops.  😉
