Kyle Richards is not messing around when it comes to business ventures beyond the reaches of The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills. The OG cast member has parlayed her fame into store franchising, production of a show based on her childhood (and infamous mom, Kathy), American Woman on TV Land, and now, an ABC series loosely inspired by her life as well.

Glass Houses, in development now, is a drama created by The Good Wife writer and executive producer, Leonard Dick which follows main character Anisa Shattenkirk-Glass, a real estate upstart who challenges her family for control of the business. Wait – is this series based on Kyle or Mauricio Umansky?

Kyle has been named executive producer of the series, along with Andrew Stearn, Tim Bevan, and Eric Fellner.

IMDB describes the series as following “the financially overextended Anisa Shattenkirk-Glass as she launches her own company to challenge her former employer and mother-in-law Dahlia for control of the L.A. real estate market, all while trying to court and please L.A.’s most lucrative and elite clients.”

How this series is based on Kyle’s life is a bit of a mystery, unless “Anisa” has a set of spitfire sisters she must contend with!

Kyle’s comedic series American Woman, is a more direct adaptation of her childhood – so much so that it caused some friction with her sisters when it was green lit for production. But Kyle has claimed that she won’t be throwing her family under the bus in the name of sitcom success. She will leave that to reality tv.

American Woman filmed its pilot last year, starring Alicia Silverstone as the character based on “Big Kathy.” No word yet on when Glass Houses will go into production.
