Remember when celebrity sex tapes were a big deal? Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee had one. Kim Kardashian and Ray J. Then, of course, there was the sex tape Paris Hilton made with her then sleazy boyfriend Rick Soloman (who also dated Pam Anderson. Small world!) Rick sold the distribution rights himself to an adult film company that released the home movie under the title “One Night in Paris.” They’re so gross clever.
Once upon a time, celebrity sex tapes were considered shameful. Today, however, we live in a world that likes to reward attention-seeking and embarrassing behavior. So much so, we don’t even remember that a sex tape made the Kardashians. Seriously people, never forget that Kim’s sex tape made Kris Jenner the momager of momagers and spawned Keeping Up with the Kardashians. That family expertly used the tape (and Kim’s relationship to Paris) as a launchpad to money and lasting (yes, lasting) fame. So, it might have been a surprise to hear Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Kyle Richards discuss Paris’ major entre into celebrity on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen this week.
Kyle Richards may be an OG of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but that doesn’t necessarily mean she wants her four daughters following in her well-heeled footsteps.
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.

I’m not gonna lie. I was pretty confused when I heard Mischa Barton would be on The Hills reboot. I couldn’t make the connection between Mischa and the rest of the cast when I first heard about it and made no sense after watched Season 1 of The Hills: New Beginnings. She brought nothing to the table, other than a sense of nostalgia and my desire to rewatch The OC.
Mischa had no storyline and we pretty much just saw her shopping with the other cast members and sitting in the background during events. With that said, it wasn’t at-all-surprising when rumors started to circulate that Mischa got fired because she was “boring” and “bland.” And quite frankly, this is because Mischa was “boring” and “bland.” Then again, so were a lot of them. The Hills cast members were working overtime on the image crafting. Somehow, the reboot seemed even more manufactured than the original series. No one showed anything remotely real.
I cannot say that I am surprised Mischa Barton (reportedly) got fired from The Hills: New Beginnings. She wasn’t a part of the original Hills run. She had such a forced “connection” to the cast. Oh, and most importantly, she had no storyline. Mischa brought absolutely nothing to the table.
We saw her audition for some acting role that she didn’t get, but that was pretty much it. Other than that, we just saw her shopping with the others and chilling in the background. As an enthusiastic fan of The OC, I was really hoping for a Mischa Barton comeback. But, the truth is, she’s not nearly as interesting as her onscreen counterpart Marissa Cooper.
Lisa Rinna was the first famous actress to join the Real Housewives universe. This changed the game for sure. She definitely paved the way for Denise Richards and Garcelle Beauvais. Sorry Kim and Kyle Richards, but you weren’t exactly household names from childhood acting roles and being Paris Hilton’s aunt. Then again, Rinna wasn’t necessarily an A-list star, but anyway, my point is that it was an unexpected move and a bit of a risk when she joined the cast of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Her husband Harry Hamlin wasn’t down for her delving into reality TV, not that we necessarily see much of him outside the occasional pie baking and family barbeque. He was afraid of the reality TV divorce curse, which is a fair thing to fear when he had already been divorced twice.
The war of words rages on between Kyle Richards and Camille Grammer.
Backstage at the launch of her new fashion line during New York Fashion Week, Kyle once again denied that she’s the reason Camille isn’t returning for Season 10 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
