She may be the last-standing housewife on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but Kyle Richards’ net worth is quite outstanding.
The former child actor joined the Bravo series in its inaugural season and continued to be a mainstay throughout its now 12 seasons. She’s also the sister of co-star Kim Richards and Kathy Hilton, who is the mother of Paris and Nicky Hilton.
She talked about how the show affects her private and public life with Yahoo’s In The Know. “There are some seasons where I can do absolutely no wrong, and then there are some seasons where people come after me and I deserved it. Then there are times where I don’t feel like I did anything and they’ll still come after me. You just don’t know. It really speaks to what’s going on in the world these days and how people are feeling too,” Kyle said. “I try to just stick with people that know me and know who I am and love me and support me. It’s easy for me to not think about the show. I do keep myself private, oddly enough. I have Kyle on the show and then there’s me alone with my friends. I post a picture and people are like, ‘Where’s Dorit [Kemsley]? Where’s this person?’ And I’m like, ‘I actually have friends who are not on the show, you know!’ It’s been very good for me to have this extra time, for sure.”

I was like, ‘Is it really going to end?’ But if it does have to end, I think the way they did it is the best way possible.”

She told WWD about her decision of opening her new boutique, “I wanted to do a collection that looked fashionable, elegant, chic and comfortable, with beautiful wildlife and nature prints. I’m an avid animal and nature lover, and wanted that reflected in the line, which will give back to various charitable foundations.” The price range of pieces are from $200 to $500 according to the fashion website.

The statement continued, “However, yes, we have had a rough year, the most challenging one of our marriage. But we both love and respect each other tremendously. There has been no wrongdoing on anyone’s part. Although we are in the public eye, we ask to be able to work through our issues privately. While it may be entertaining to speculate, please do not create false stories to fit a further salacious narrative. Thank you for the love and support.”
