All in All

Kyle shares her busy holiday schedule, and how shocked she was by Kim's emotional chat.

I am so sorry my blog is late. I have been crazy with end of the year school stuff with my kids, holiday shopping/wrapping, and press for my book that comes out December 27th (see the trailer here)! I'm writing this blog from my blackberry while sitting in the airport. As a woman, I can multitask with the best of 'em. After wrapping gifts all day and packing for myself and my kids for our trip, I said to my husband, "If Santa were a woman he wouldn't need elves".

Last week we watched as all the girls took off for Vegas. I wanted to go to Vegas but couldn't leave for the weekend. On top of planning the White Party and my book cover shoot, my girls were flower girls in a good friend’s wedding.

I always love going to Vegas. I suppose it was best, since I avoided having to choose between going with Adrienne or Lisa. Phew!!! I will say, both groups looked like they were having fun.

Back home, Faye and I went shopping with Glenn Schneider, my party planner. I could not throw a party without the two of them. Every year, we go through the same thing. . .arguing back and forth about what looks best, who’s taste is best, and where everything should be placed for the best party possible. We always have fun doing it. When Faye dropped the chandelier, I was so embarrassed! In typical Faye fashion, she didn't let it faze her. Not even an "oopsie."

My book cover shoot was so much fun. We spent the entire day playing. I'm happy the final cover captured who I am. The book was a lot more work than I anticipated. Sleepless nights is one thing but the rewrites were killer! I had to keep going over it and over it again. I wanted to share personal stories, pictures (not all glamorous ones I might add), and offer advice on things that have worked for me... How to find the right man and keep him, beauty, fashion, hair care, and makeup tips. It really was a great experience all in all.

Later in the episode, I was shopping with my mother-in-law Estella and kids when I bumped into my sister Kim. When we first sat down to talk, I had no idea what she was going to say. As she started speaking, I realized just how bad of a place my sister was in. It is painful for me to see my sister like that. In watching the episode, I could not stop crying. I love my sister and want to see her happy with someone that will love her and take care of her. My sister has had a difficult time lately and it shows so much in that scene. It's hard sharing such private moments like that. My sister is in a much better place now than she was then. I love her so much and am proud of her.

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday! XO, Kyle

Kyle: Kim and Monty's Relationship Is Unique

Kyle talks the wedding and the beautiful examples of co-parenting surrounding her.

Sorry I'm late on my blog! Holiday craziness is in full effect.

I really enjoyed the time we spent with Yolanda on the boat. It was nice to be away from Los Angeles and just have some bonding time. I felt for Yolanda and could feel how nervous she was, regarding Bella. She wanted to get home to her and felt helpless in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea. Once home, it was nice to see what a wonderful stepfather David is to Yolanda's kids. I think it's admirable how Yolanda, David and Mohamed co-parent. A wonderful example of how blended families should be.

Eileen is great. It's so sweet how much she loves her niece. I also love my sister's girls like my own and can relate. Also, as a mom of all girls, I enjoy watching the mother and son relationship.

It's fun to see Eileen in her soap opera setting. She has been doing this a long time and is obviously great at what she does--with an Emmy to prove it!

Lisa V. getting her Star in Palm Springs is an honor I know she must be very proud of. Her name forever imprinted on the streets of a town I absolutely love.
And back to being a mom of boys, I can't say I blame Lisa V. for not loving that Max's girlfriend is so much older. Especially when in our minds, as mothers, they are always children. Even if they are "adults." 

We returned early from Europe, because Brooke had decided to move her wedding date up to make sure her father was strong enough to attended due to his health. It was supposed to be six months later. We hadn't chosen dresses for the wedding, yet, so I sent some pictures of dresses to Brooke for approval first. Although a somewhat "impromptu " wedding, it was absolutely beautiful. The bride and mother of the bride were radiant.

Kim and Monty's relationship is unique. They are truly best friends, and I so admire Kim's dedication to him.

Kyle Richards

Our family has known Thayer's family for almost 30 years. I was at the hospital when Thayer and his identical twin brother Taylor were born. Taylor and my daughter Farrah dated for eight years. I love them and their family and am so happy to have them be an official part of our family now.


Kim and Monty's relationship is unique. They are truly best friends, and I so admire Kim's dedication to him. They are both so lucky to have each other. Seeing the pictures of them so young and as new parents brought tears to my eyes. Kim and Monty are another beautiful example of co-parenting after divorce.

And lastly, yes, I did buy Chanel dog bowls. Hopefully they can't read what it says, because I am trying to keep them grounded and down to earth (wink, wink).

XO,
Kyle
