In a new interview, the RHOBH star opened up about the prospect of her kids becoming reality stars. And while you may think you know the answer, Kyle‘s thoughts on the subject might surprise you.
According to Wonderwall, Kyle revealed during a chat with Australian TV Week that she would “strongly advise against” her girls following dreams of reality stardom.
“I wouldn’t let them,” Kyle said of daughters Farrah Aldjufrie, Alexia Umansky, Sophia Umansky, and Portia Umansky. “Two of my girls are in real estate – they’re businesswomen, and I like that they’re on that path.”

Now, this answer is a little rich for a variety of reasons. First of all, reality TV is essentially the lifeblood of multiple branches of the Richards family tree. Not only did Kyle and her sister Kim Richards singlehandedly start RHOBH together, her niece Paris Hilton was a bonafide pioneer of the genre thanks to her five seasons of The Simple Life in the early 2000s. And that’s not all; here’s a litany of other shows to consider. Kyle competing on Celebrity Apprentice, Check. 2011’s short-lived The World According to Paris? Loves it. Paris Hilton’s My New BFF on MTV? That’s hot. (Also R.I.P.)
Kim stuck in a house with Heidi Montag on The Mother/Daughter Experiment? What dreams are made of. And of course, who could forget Kim and Kyle’s last-place finish on celebrity diving competition Stars in Danger: The High Dive? (Seriously though.)
More importantly, though, it’s ironic considering fans have essentially watched Kyle‘s daughters grow up on national television. Over the past ten years, we’ve seen Farrah receive a giant Hilton-sized check for her college graduation. We’ve watched Kyle fall apart dropping Alexia and then Sophia off at college. We’ve seen the inside of their dorm rooms at said colleges.
Portia was practically a baby when RHOBH started. I mean, Lisa Vanderpump literally walked a llama through Kyle’s house at the girl’s 4th birthday party back in Season 3. And now you’re saying you don’t want your girls to be on TV?

Don’t get me wrong, Kyle is a great mom. A truly wonderful one. And that’s something she by all means should take great pride in. Even her most recent fight with Denise Richards on the current season of RHOBH revolved around Kyle feeling like her castmate was mom-shaming her. But to say she “wouldn’t let” her daughters become reality stars? It’s a little too late for that.
