Kyle Richards: 'I Have a Newfound Respect for Paris'

The RHOBH star on the downside of fame.


Reality TV isn't always chi-chi-chi, darling. "I really did not think this was going to be difficult. I really did not," The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Kyle Richards tells The CW about following in her celebutant niece's Jimmy Choos.

True, Kyle had a morsel of reality experience prior to Housewives with cameos on Paris Hilton's The Simple Life. "Everyone seems to remember when I jumped in the pool with my Gucci boots on to get the girl," she says. "I get a lot of tweets about that." But that was Giggy-sized drama in comparison to dinner parties – and game nights -- from hell.

"I used to say to [Paris and Nicky], 'Don't let that bother you! Don't pick up that magazine!' And now that I'm in this position -- and it's not even an iota of what Paris has gone through -- I have a newfound respect for her," Kyle confides about dealing with the sometimes nasty blogosphere. "I said to Kathy tonight, 'The comments people make are so crazy. She was such a young girl going through this at such an enormous level.' I don't know how she kept it together. As a grown woman, I don't know how she did it."
