Sure, Kyle Richards is a born and bred Beverly Hills girl, but don't mistake that for meaning she was raised with a Tiffany's silver spoon in her mouth.
"Because I was a child actress, I had a different experience than most who grew up in Beverly Hills. I was going to the set every day in Simi Valley and riding horses on the set of Little House on the Prairie and catching tadpoles in the stream. It gave me a glimpse into a different world, which I really appreciate now looking back as an adult," the RHOBH star tells Parade. "In Beverly Hills, everybody is very privileged and has help and drivers, so it was a nice break from that."
Even today, Kyle's still a no-nannies kind of girl. "It was always very important to my mom that we were down to earth. She made us clean our own rooms and wash our own cars. That's how I was raised and that's how I want my daughters to be raised," explains Mrs. Umansky. "I don't want someone else driving my children to school. I want to be there with them in the car having those conversations."

Kyle, I really use to like you....thought you had it together and were indeed one of the luckiest women in your group to have a beautiful child and gorgeous hubby. But that perception has gradually dwindled with the passing of each season. You are extremely self-righteous, very judgmental and so mean-spirited it takes my breath away. There is a real vicious streak in you which the cameras has captured very well... and the way you treated Kim and Brandy? Wow- I have no words! Then you guys all ganged up on Lisa! I thought to myself: "isn't Kyle suppose to be her friend?"
You may think you're are a class act, but your behaviour speaks volumes otherwise. Class is a state of being, the way one dresses, walks, talks and behaves towards others. It isn't just how much money you makes or what designer clothes you're wearing!
I hope you learn from Camille Ms. Richards, because just as quickly as you go up, you can come crashing down! Good luck!!
i really do like that side of you, your family is everything to you in a very genuine way.. my hope for you is that you come back next season a genuine friend (especially to lisa) and the other girls too. i have to admit last year you were my favorite hands down, after watchin you on the reunion part 1 and 2 i dont know if we have meet the real kyle yet..
Let's see, there was also laundry, helping with dinner, setting the table, washing dishes, cleaning house, mowing the lawn, feeding the animals, raking leaves, volunteering at our local nursing home and washing my parents' cars. The same down-to-earth values my husband and I have instilled in our boys. Family, not material objects, the most important thing.
"she made us clean our room and wash our own cars." If only my childhood were so down to earth. How rough that must have been for you.
Everyone seems to think Kyle is this "mean girl", and I just don't see her that way. You can plainly see how much she loves her sister, and has been worried sick about her. Not only her addiction, but having that "ken" in her life was enough to make anyone worry! It's hard enough to go through that, not to mention having cameras in your face all of the time, I would imagine. Everyone seems to forget that "trash mouth" Brandi is the one who started the argument with her and Kim, and was totally out of line. It wasn't her place to say those things, much less call Kyle a bitch. And Lisa? If she is befriending someone like Brandi, she doesn't have as much class as she portrays herself to have either. Kyle is real, down to earth, and loves her family very much. LOVE HER!
