Oh my goodness, here we go! I feel like I've been perpetually pregnant and the baby is finally coming. A strange mixture of excitement and fear. What will people think? Will I come across as I really am? I went into this project knowing I had to be me 100 percent. That's NOT always a good thing. Letting your guard down and the world into your home is very risky, I know. A risk I felt like taking. I do have a wonderful life and some ask why I would do something like this and mess with a good thing ... Well, honestly I felt that my family and I are solid enough to handle it. Plus, we were all up for the adventure.
This first episode you're just getting to know who each of us are. On our trip to Sacramento I was ready to have fun! I thought it was funny that Lisa would bring Jiggy to a basketball game, but I suppose if I could have brought one of my kids I would have. And she DOES think that is her child. I was really hoping Kim would make an effort with these friends of mine and expand her social circle. I was nervous, because I could feel that Kim wasn't thrilled to be there, and I really just wanted to have fun and not have to hold her hand. UNLESS of course there was turbulence. I do NOT like to fly. Period. End of story. Anytime I fly ANYWHERE I think ... well, this could be it. I try so hard not to think like that, but I just can't get my head around the concept that this gigantic piece of machinery is 35,000 feet in the air and I'M SITTING IN IT. With my life in a total strangers hands. I was less worried before I became a mother. I had my 1st baby at 19, and that's when the real worrying began. What if something happens to me? Who will love and care for them the way I do? Now I really understand how my Mom felt.
That is why I feel it is my responsibility to look after my sister Kim. When she needs guidance or advice, I try to do and say what I know my Mother would have. At times I feel like I am channeling my Mom. I think sometimes Kim appreciates it and other times resents it. I can understand why motherly advice coming from a baby sister may feel like meddling, but I do care about my sister. No, we don't always see eye to eye, but I'm sure those of you with siblings can understand that.
Thanks for reading my blog. It feels good to share these thoughts that have been on my mind! Until next week!
is your sister in therapy? she seems a little lost - a little insight goes a long way. but not too much therapy, just enough to feel more comfortable in her own skin. maybe it was just the cameras being there.
You are the most likable girl on the show. I hope it stays that way. Adrienne seems pretty real too and Kim seems a little sheltered and/or gun shy. The lady with the dog is fine, Taylor is a little wacky and Camille just seems like a fame grabber. She was no one before Kelsey and she'll stay no one after this show. She does not come across as a likable person. You on the other hand do, so keep it up. If I continue to watch, it will be because of you! And because I loved Kim in Tuff Turf with James Spader! lol
I think the ladies were overreacting to your reactions on the plane. I get the same exact way when I experience turbulence - I will NEVER be relaxed when I'm on an airplane and I tend to think the worse (recognizing that I could fall in the Atlantic makes me feel better when I'm in the air). That said, I'm getting on a plane to New York in a few hours. Wish me luck!
In just this first episode, I really like you! You and your family seem very solid and happy. I think its great that you look after your sister... Everyone needs someone to both lean on and get tough love from. You seem very outgoing and friendly and I look forward to watching you this season!
So far you are my least favorite housewife. It seems you are in desperate need of attention and are always doing something annoying to acquire it. And constantly lecturing your sister is not "taking care of her." Give her a break.
Loved, loved you and a few of the other ladies. I hope you stay real you seem really scrappy good for you...wow I though 2 girls was tough 4? Crazy good luck and thanks for letting us into your home. I was worried at first that this was just going to be about money money and look poor little people look what you don't have. But you seem grounded. Keep your faith and God Bless.
I found the first episode surprisingly refreshing. Everyone appears to want to be genuine. I have to say I already have a soft spot for you and your sister Kim. I grew up watching your shows and movies. You took me back and it felt good.
I loved the scenes with your husband and children. What a beautiful family- you are much more down to earth and more 'normal' than I expected from a Beverly Hills Housewife!!! Congrats on the show- can't wait to see what happens this season.
I found the first episode surprisingly refreshing. All of you appear to want to be genuine. I have to say I already have a soft spot for you and your sister Kim. I grew up watching your shows and movies and it took me back to a great time.
i feel sorry for you and your cast mates. yes we know, you are beautiful, that means absolutely nothing.
I watch all of the housewives series, and you guys may have just topped my list as my favorite cast. I think you all have such great personalities, and although very different, you seem very genuine. I love that you all donate your time and money to charities. And I love that you look after your sister and put your family first. You seem like a great mom/sister.
I think you're absolutely gorgeous. You and your husband make a handsome couple and you have lovely kids.
I love how you're like the only brunette on the show and you stand out. You have great hair.
Looking forward to seeing more of the show.
You are my favorite so far! I think you are smart and funny. You seem to be comfortable with yourself. You are the only housewife that looks normal. Scary how a couple of the women look, don't they know how odd their faces look after too many surgeries?!
Kyle, your very beautiful and you don't come across as fake at all. I had pretty much decided not to watch this group of Housewives I mean did I really want to spend the time on another group of self centered publicity hungry females. But, I thought I'd watch the first one and see. I was pleasently surprised. Maybe it was watching you with your children or your sister but I enjoyed the show. I look forward to next week.
You are fun. You have a great looking family. I love that you put it all out there. You look very very real. Pantene huh! I'm off to buy it.
I can totally understand! Everyone thinks I'm nuts, I will not fly anywhere unless my husband and daughter fly with me. Can you please tell us what hair products you use for shine?:)
I can relate to the flying issue! I do not fly unless my husband and daughter are with me!!! What products do you use on your hair for shine??? FABULOUS!
Kyle, I'm a huge fan of yours and Kim's; you two are the sole reason I'm watching this show. I feel like I've grown up with both of you. I'm only a year older than you and have been watching you since your LH years. The Witch Mountain movies are my all-time faves and you and Kim are so awesome! So great to see you two back in the spotlight where you both belong - and together, makes it even better! Good luck with this show, it's going to be amazing!
kyle, i didn't know you were a teen mom at one time. i'm a teen mom, i had my son @ 18 and it feels good to know that you were in that position at one time too. you look fabulous! xoxo
Hi Kyle, you and Kim are definitely the most real, down to earth and best looking! I can't wait to watch this season. I remember seeing you in "Halloween"!
I totally understand the flying issue and will not fly with out my husband or dauhter! Please share what hair products you use for shine! You are one fab Mommy!
You are by far the hottest of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. You look fabulous. I also can't believe how much your niece, Paris, looks so much like you (more so than her own mother, your sister Kathy) and she even has a lot of your mannerisms.
I loved this episode. I've always watched all of the Real Housewives, and although I've had my favorite, the Beverly Hills group looks to be in first place. It was great!
Finally, It's obvious that your sister Kim needs you in a big way. Your caring and patience are commendable. You are truly a loving sister.
Hi Kyle, Love the show last night. I think this will be the best of the Housewives series. I also loved the top you wore in the scene where you are at home with your family. You were in the kitchen holding your baby and your husband was working on the bbque. It was a white kaftan style with embroidery. I LOVED IT! Who is the designer and is it possible to still get one? Please direct me to where I can get one for myself. I audience was dead on when they voted you the hottest Beverly Hills Housewife. Can't wait to see more of the show!
Loved the show last night. You are definitely my favorite. I think you are the most fun out all of the wives. I will definitely be watching.
You are FABOLOUS and my favorite of th BH cast! I absolutely love your look, you are stunning. You are a great mother as well! Can't wait until next week!
Most of your fans have said it all. You are amazing and talented! The show took me by surprise, I have watched all of the Housewives series and I follow the shows religiously. But, after watching the Beverely Housewives last night, I made my first blog on a Housewives blog just to show my admiration for you and the other housewives. Keep up the good job raising your children!! I am a career mom raising two girls. I love the fact that your family comes first.
Wow! Your comments on here - basically DITTO and DITTO.....etc...for Me! I absolutely love your look and not only that your personality because as we know to be beautiful outside one must be beautiful INSIDE and you seem to be both! You are a good sister...and I am an older sister too. I am 43, my sister is 41 so yes...it's a little difficult even as adults to take advice from the "baby" sister. But, anyway, you mean well and it's clear you love your sister so much! I hope she is doing well..and maybe this show will help her financially if she is in fact having any financial trouble. I knew i recognized you both from somewhere...yes the Hilton family. I know Kathy is your older sister and you all look alike! You and Kathy and Paris look most alike then the rest of your family. I also saw the movies and shows you and your sister were in since I am around your age and Kim's age! I loved those shows! Very interesting to see you both now years later.
I too, was looking forward to Bev. Hills only because you both were gonna be on it. You both seem like you are the youngest on the show along with maybe CAmille Grammer?
Anyway, I also think you are even better looking than your niece - Paris. I mean you all are beautiful but your hair is a stunnner. Gawd, you probably hear how beautiful you are all the time....hopefully your head is not too big. lol !!
ANyway, I look forward to learning about you all and liking some things and disliking some things about all of you....just like anything else!
Anwyway, stay REAL and stay away from the PLASTIC SURGERY!!! I think it's why we all LOVE your looks the MOST!!!
Keep it REAL AND HUMBLE....and your life will be better and better! Take care and keep being a good mom too!!
Kim in San Diego (P.S. born in Glendale, parents brought up there too...)
Kyle, You come across as genuine, and also very caring towards your sister. I know what it is like to have a sibling who needs a lot of care. My sibling who I love very much but could be 'challenging' at times. However the love comes thru loud and clear.
Out of all the RHOBHs, you and your sister are my favs. I think a lot of us out here can really relate to the two of you!
Klye you seem like a great person. I really like Adrienne and Lisa too. I'm not fan of Taylor or Camille. Kim seems as if she really disn't want to do the show. Can't wait to see the next episode.
I enjoyed the show last night and can't wait to see more!! I think you are the prettiest housewife on the show. You're a great Mom and Sister to Kim and I hope as time goes by she will loosen up and enjoy the experience with you. I remember watching you on Little House, I was a big fan when I was a child. I read all the books and never missed an episode. Best of luck to you and your family!!
This is in regards to your sis. She was an icon. As a kid she was definately up there as one of my favorite actors. I wanted to add, I was surprised she had said she doesnt have many friends. Maybe it's living in Beverly Hills. Maybe she would fit better in a smaller town. I'm surprised she hasn't made more friends through her kids. Through play groups, and sporting events.I wouldn't have as many friends if it wasn't for my kids. Parents usually visit while their kids play whatever, (baseball, footbaLL, Soccer, cheerleading, plays, etc.... I have formed many friendships just by being a Mom.She would fit right in our Norman Rockwell town and I guarantee would have many friends. I like her. You two so far are the most down to earth of housewives.(shockingly so) Seems maybe the two of you have had less trips to the Surgeons. Good genes plays a part. Thank your parents for that.
Kyle you are absolutely stunning! You look absolutely natural (meaning...no work done). You're a breathe of fresh air and your family is beautiful. Keep being genuine. You, Lisa and Adrienne are my favorite HWs so far. God bless you and your family.
Kyle~ I read your blog as I was flying from Cabo to Chicago.Yikes! I, too, have been a nervous flier since having children, white-knuckled with every bit of turbulence, so I can totally relate. I really liked you on this first show! You seem to be a good mom, a lot of fun, and have your head on straight. Thanks for keeping it real!
I'm impressed how normal your daily life seems to be and how devoted you are to your family. I think its really sweet how you try to take care of your sister. I thought you would be a group of out of touch, spoiled rich girls but I think you definately know what is important in life. And by the way, your hair is gorgeous!
Kyle, you are FABULOUS! Can't wait to see the upcoming episodes! Blessings and and success to you! best wishes, Kk
You are stunning!! You have the most gorgeous hair and skin...please please please give us tips on some of your favorite products you like to use for those! Looking forward to watching more of this season with you!
Kyle Kyle Kyle is what I be screaming. Like really? She is a straight chick who is real which is perfect for the show. I love how you are a mom, a sister, a wife, and a friend. You just convey the epitomy of what every housewife should be. Portia cracks me up especially when she put your hand over your mouth and says, "don't talk". She is adorable. Out of all the housewives, I think that you are my fav. followed by Adrienne, Taylor, Lisa....Kim i'm a little sketchy about. We shall see, but keep up your perfect personality. It really is the best!
