Kyle Richards

You have probably noticed people (mostly Lisa Vanderpump‘s husband Ken Todd) making references to Kyle Richards wearing moomoos on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. It’s her signature look and I just figured it was because they’re super comfortable to wear, but maybe there’s more to the story. Kyle opened up about her struggles to stay thin and maintain her looks.

Personally, I feel like Kyle has always looked great, so to hear that she was struggling with this, is surprising and actually refreshing to hear that even wealthy reality TV stars have the same face and body insecurities that we all have. Nevertheless, I was still shocked to see her posing in a bathing suit with Erika Jayne in the trailer for the upcoming season. I totally support Kyle (and any other human) having the body confidence that Erika constantly exudes, but even more than that, I respect Kyle for opening up about how tough it is, even when it really seems like she is just effortlessly stunning.

Kyle opened up about her appearance in a recent interview with Daily Mail.

Kyle admitted, “I do not usually parade around in a bathing suit. I’ve just never really been like that.” Thankfully she channeled her inner Erika and just went for it. Kyle also said, “I have four kids. I’m 47. I just thought, ‘Fine, whatever! It’s certainly not going to get better, so I might as well.”’ I couldn’t agree more.

Kyle kept it real when she admitted, “I work out really hard. It’s not easy for me. My body tends to want to be curvy naturally so I have to really fight hard to stay thinner.”

I thought Kyle was just naturally thin, but it’s nice to know since I’m sure a lot of women watch her on TV and can’t help doing a little compare and contrast. It is cool that she’s just like a lot of us who have to work hard to get results.

Aside from putting in the time and effort, Kyle also admitted that she is not opposed to getting cosmetic surgery, especially since already admitted to getting a nose job and liposuction. Kyle shared, ‘The truth is, I’m really scared of those things, but I did have my nose done. And I was terrified but it wasn’t that bad.” I have to assume that this is a plot line during the upcoming season so that should be interesting to see since I feel like Kyle is normally cool, calm, and collected when it comes to sharing her personal life and opinions.
