On The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Kyle Richards often speaks about keeping a promise she made to her late mother that she'd always look after older sister Kim Richards. But Kyle is also remembering mom Kathleen – who passed away in 2002 from breast cancer -- in another way. Kyle recently hosted an event in Beverly Hills called the Cure in the Canyon, and also participated in a 68-mile bike ride along with husband Mauricio Umansky to promote breast cancer awareness.
"I have four daughters, so it is a very important cause for me since I have been personally affected by that," she told her local newspaper, the Beverly Hills Courier.
Yes, despite whatever friction you see on the show, family is paramount to Kyle -- the bond between her and Kim might bend, but don't expect it to break. "I want everyone to know that I LOVE my sister and have ALWAYS been there for her," Kyle writes on her blog. "My mother always taught us that any accomplishment my sisters or I achieve is a 'feather in all our caps.' Kathy, Kim, and I are always proud of each other. We feel that each of our lives is a reflection on all of us. We all want the best for each other."
