I was on my book tour and had a book signing in Boca Raton at a store called Alene Too. I walked in and fell in love! I said to the owners Lizzy Schwartz and Debbie Wiesman that this store was my fantasy. Every designer I love under one roof!
When I came back to Los Angeles, I decided to reach out to them and ask if they would want to be partners and open a store in Beverly Hills with me. Well, here we are! That is why the name is Kyle By Alene Too. Some just call it "Kyle" because it's easier, but that is the official name.
I am so grateful to have amazing partners, who are incredible people. They were instantly like family to me!
I love having the store and my husband loves that now my "buying" is for the store and not just my clothes. My daughters think its the most exciting thing ever! It has become the hangout for my family and friends.
I was so appreciative of all the support that night. It was a perfect evening. Having my four daughters, my husband, family, and friends all there to celebrate this special night was something I will never forget.
I love how you say you're not going to pick a side, and then you defend Faye. You picked a side, sweetheart. Sadly.
Kyle, I have adored you for so long but I am beginning to question if people are right that you like to stir the pot. I am saying this based mainly on your relationship with Faye. You simply must pull her aside and tell her to keep her absurd, inflated opinions to herself. She is not helping anything at all and it is reflecting poorly on you, whether you realize it or not.
Kyle, think your awesome..! Don't be scared of adrienne and faye, you have to see they are nutzo, and bring you down. Stick up for lisa too she loves you and is begging for your attention, shes fighting you should fight too..!!!! your great and beautiful! and keep the good ones around..!!! yolanda and brandi, and lisa!!!!!!!!!
I'm surprised so many people don't like faye...I can't stand yolanda. She is so annoying and stuck up.
Kyle, congratulations on your store! I wish you much success! It appears that you did some self reflection this season. All you can do is be the best person you can be, which means being honest, kind, and respectful. I am not fond of Faye. She appears to be self-important and really not the type of person that inspires kindness or respect.
Kyle,you claim to be close as sisters but tell us why Kathy never comes to any of yours or kim events..could it be that you both are an embarrassment to her.
You have got to stop bringing Faye on the show or no one will keep watching! She is a sad , pathetic person. It reflects poorly on you and your family.
Please Bravo, do not add Faye Resnik to the cast of RHOBH. I cringe when I see her on the show. What she spews out has no relevance. RHOBH is my favorite of all the franchises.....but Faye Resnik is definitely on of the worst women of all time on any of the Real Housewives franchises or series. Please do not bring her back in any shape or form.
PS - I made a Bravo account so I could voice my opinion of how much I do not want to see this woman on the show. I hope Bravo reads the comments and takes them into consideration.
I know she's Kyle's friend but I hope RHBH gets rid of Faye. Too over-the-top phony in a sea of phoniness..
Sister, you need a new friend for sure. Faye makes me literally sick, I can't watch her. When I see her I have to mute the television and walk away. I am praying BRAVO refuses to give her any air time....she is toxic. Why you would have a friend like her is beyond me....unless you are like that....I trust not. There is enough drama without having her in the picture. I often feel she is your mouth piece so that you will not come across as mean or vindictive. With her in the picture you are coming across as weak, fight your own battles and take that woman out of it. I do think you and your husband's relationship is to be envied. I love that you are so close and that you have beautiful children. I pray that we never have to hear that you are separating or divorcing, I don't think that will happen, I think you guys are solid and I congratulate you two for that. I love the way Lisa loves Ken, Yolanda loves David and how you love your husband....it's beautiful.
"I will stop watching if Bravo brings Faye back!" I have seen this so many times that I just wanted to comment on it. I truly hope these words are being written just out of frustration and that's really not going to happen. I have to admit that The Housewives of Beverly Hills is one of my favorite guilty pleasures. In my opinion, Faye has not done anything so horrific that it would make me stop watching. Surely everyone would agree that the drama is what we tune in every week to watch. I don't know about you folks, but I would find the Housewives a bit boring without some of the drama. I love all the Housewives' shows and will continue to support Bravo by watching all of them! So, maybe we can find another way, other then tuning out, to let Bravo know when we feel so passionate about something or someone. Maybe some sort of petition, flood their mail room with thousands of letters....? Just a thought. But please keep on watching as some of these comments are coming from some of my favorite "posters"!
Congrats on the store Kyle!!!! Does this mean that you & Kim will get to wear your boutique's fashions once.....have it dry cleaned it & return it to the store, because you girls have been stepping-out in some fabulous dresses?!?!
It's obvious that your friends Faye & Marissa are really pulling-out all the stops in hopes of getting invited by BRAVO to be on the show next season!!!!! I would definitely replace Taylor & Yolanda if I were BRAVO!!!
Taylor was also trying to help Dana make a come-back, but she looked like a "Hot Mess", all liquored-up in that scene!!!!!! David Foster's Ex-wife is also vying for a spot!!! She's a beautiful lady, but her comment about making her own jam, "being so middle class", was so BEVERLY HILLS!!!!!!
"Birds of s feather flock together".Faye Resnik is a housewife want to be.It seems she bases her opinions on what she thinks she knows.Do you really think that Adrieanne and Paul divorced because of Brandi?Really?That is really childish.You backing up Faye,makes you just like her.Neither one of you have any sense and your friendship proves it.
Still like you the best. Glad your store is doing well.. Yolanda sticks her nose in everyone's business, she's a know it all and a mean girl. Brandi is starved for attention and gets it by being mean and cruel, so it's working for her. Hope Taylor gets help. Hope your sister stays on the right track. I hope Faye is on the show next year. To all the people that don't like her and say they won't watch if she's on....BYE BYE!
Kyle do yourself a favor and read all the blogs about Faye. Faye is out for the spotlight and I bet she would turn on you in a heart beat. Let's just say like you turned on Lisa; will you enjoy it? I completely agree with some of the other bloggers if Faye stays or is brought on as a cast member I too will stop watching.
Kyle..any woman who would allow one friend attack another friend in her own home and not defend her or ask the bully to leave is not a woman at all, more like a high school mean girl, You have decided to align yourself with some people of serious questionable character and its a big reflection on you. You gossip behind peoples backs and you don't halt anyone who does the same as well. You didn't like it when Camille did that to you with her little psychic friend (awful person that she is) yet you allow Faye to do the same for you. A true lady would ask Faye to please stay out of these things or to leave if she cant keep her trap shut, but you call her a good friend. You are bringing your self down by this friendship, you were much more likable when you were friends with Lisa. I am sure you are a good hearted person Kyle and I enjoyed watching you act as a child, but as an adult, i think you really need to quit joining in or starting gossip and learning to satay out of other peoples issues, it is so uncool.
People will like you much better and have more nice things to say about you if you just turn that corner...
Yeah, I agree with everyone. I used to be Team Kyle but Faye Resnick is the most repulsive and hideous person in ANY of the Housewives series. There is not one thing you can say about her that is positive or likable. I think the viewers have spoken and we all want Faye to disappear already but you just keep bringing Faye around.
If Faye is on next season, me and many of my friends are going to stop watching the BH series.
Yes Faye will bring drama she is so mean! Bringing her on the show will cause fans to stop watching, I seriously can't watch this Faye character another second!! I seriously can't do it please remove her from the show!
While I don't wish you the worst, I certainly don't wish you the best. You have no backbone nor honor amongst friends. You played the fence too much & too often and look where it got you. Kyle, I don't think the bloggers are happy with you anymore. Maybe reality tv was a poor decision for you. Everyone agrees the editing plays a huge part in how a person is perceived but it doesn't hide how you clearly don't support the one person who called you a friend and that's Lisa. You failed her miserably and just think you were given a second chance, which is coming up in the next episode and it appears you will fail again. You are not what I would call a friend one could depend on. Shame on you.
The Faye things really gets me...when did she become the moral compass for anything? Google her to see what she was up to in the 90's. Kyle, it is awful you let Faye be such a bully. Andy...get Faye off, she is awful. It looks she is ruining Lisa's party/vow renewal with petty acquisitions. No one talks about Faye and she should stop talking period.
Watched a piece from the reunion when you said to someone that was a character assasination against you... Well it's not if you don't have any character to start with.
I have been re watching old season episodes and I am sure that you have said the eff word many more times than Brandi, interesting that you take such a "shocked" reaction to her use of the word. In season one and two you said the word almost weekly!!!!!! WTF Kyle ? Double standard.........surely not!
Why are you so shallow and fake? You have four beautiful daughters watching your example of how to conduct your self, your manipulating ways and constant stirring and trouble making is a terrible example of how to behave. If you don't want them to grow up and be backstabbing nasty mean women, you had really better think about changing your ways, your girls will model the example you give them. My advice regarding Faye......... Keep that hideous orange nasty wannabe as far away as possible from your family!
I agree with what everybody else is saying on here Kyle, maybe you should look in the mirror you are starting to look like Faye, if you would get a fake tan, dye your hair, wear clothes that don't fit you and tighten your lips when you talk, you might be considered a sister to her instead of Kim. You are two faced and fake cry with a squeaky voice, did Faye teach you that. You stir up trouble and when everybody thinks its past, you bring it up again and again just to keep it going. Just remember Kyle where you came from, money does make people mean, think they are better than everybody else and just be careful money can go as fast as it came. I think you and Faye should jump on the Adrianne wagon and ride on out of the show. Oh unless the wagon ride would be beneath you!!! Oh yeah, take your husband with you.
Hey Kyle First off, you are absolutely beautiful. You look like Demi Moore but better. You, your husband and children are beautiful. BUT! HA So here's my imput if it means anything. You are the "trying to make everything alright" girl. Your sister needs to fall in order to climb back up. Toughlove is hard, but do it. Love Lisa and Brandi. Lose Dana= ugh--she's the trailor trash. She wants to be so bad like all of you and it's sickening. Faye is very protective over you but needs to stay out of alot of stuff with you and the girls. Good luck on your new store. You dress so cute. Leigh from Florida
It seems like some viewers have another reason to dislike Kyle - her being friends with Faye. While I agree that I also do not like the things that Faye has said, she reminds me of Brandi in some ways. She calls it as she sees it, she is not afraid to say what is on her mind, whether it's right or wrong, kind of like Brandi! The difference is, we see another side of Brandi as she is a full time "housewife". Faye, on the other hand, is not, and we only get to see the "drama causing" side of her. I want to believe there is a good side to Faye as I cannot imagine that Kyle would bring such a mean and catty person around her family. I know alot of folks on here do not like Kyle, I happen to like her so I would be willing to give Faye a chance if she becomes a "housewife".
I don't think faye is any of the above....I think that she really just hates brandi and the things that brandi said about her good friend, adrienne.
@elicat At first I thought I wasn't going to agree with your comment but luckily I read it through in full and I have to agree with what you say. Of course some of the drama is why I tune in and I guess like any programme you have your favorites and those that you like to dislike. My biggest problem with Faye is her " listen to me although I don't care what you have to say" attitude. It's such an aggressive attitude from someone whose never actually there when the original situation occurs. I totally agree with you that viewers should start a petition or write letters and of course I will tune in next season, anticipating more drama - I just hope Faye is not part of it, because while I like drama, I don't like arrogance :)
@charlie@companyYolanda didn't say that....Linda (david Foster's) ex...who brought the jam made the comment.
A true lady would never be friends with, or even an acquaintence of Faye Resnick.
@misslee001 I agree with you. She's just awful. What bothers me about her being on the show so much is that she is pandering to an even lower level than the show is at. Meaning, we all like the drama, but there's a point where it's just disgusting to watch, and she's creating that here. I hope she goes.
And that says it all!
Definitely double standard. So glad you mentioned it. She is shocked by everything that other people do but yes it is totally different when Kyle does it. Kyle if you read this you might learn something.
@elicat well..if there actually exists a "good" side to Faye..she sure is not interested in trying to sell that side to the public...
@elicat It's nice to see someone can see the trees through the forest on here. Love Kyle too!
I don't think Bravo is stupid enough to bring her back for the one or two viewers who would like to see her again, but you never know. I, for one, wish Bravo would sometimes ignore public opinion to take people off for reasons to do with what is morally right rather than majority rules (naive, I know). In this case, the majority IS the moral majority in this case, and Rancid Fayke should be yanked.
@elicat Sorry, but if she wanted to be a housewife perhaps Faye should have though about showing us viewers the 'other side' To be honest it's not just RHOBH where people have formed an opinion of her, her history of behavior goes way back. Therefore, it's hard to believe there is another side to her persona, at least as far as in the public eye goes and I see only arrogance and a condescending woman. If she was to join the show next season, I would be extremely disappointed.
@elicat Faye sees things in a twisted way...period
@elicat Faye's still a cast member this year, it's why she had a blog before. She's on the same level as Marisa, they're both "Friends of Housewives". Marisa just still has one because she hasn't managed to piss the entire country off. Faye oversteps her authority on camera and apparently does the same thing off, read what people from her past have stepped forward to say this week.
As I was watching reruns of past episodes, it does seem like Faye has a chip on her shoulders. She comes into an argument that has nothing to do with her and only hears one side of it. Like I said, it appears she is a shady lady! I'm glad you read my comment in full and that you will be tuning in next season! Your comments would have definitely been missed! Enjoy the finale and reunion tonight!!
@company Brenda......that's what I said.......if you read my comments again.
Thank you bestill!!
I haven't done any research on Faye; I am only going by what I see on the show. But after reading some other comments it does appear that she is a shady lady. So, as of now, I have to agree. I guess I was just hoping that there was a gentler side to her as she is a friend of Kyle's and godmother to Kyle's daughter. And if she does have that "other side", it's too bad she chose not to show us!
I have been reading what other people have said about her. Not good, I must admit! And it seems that Marisa has more camera time than Faye. At least I have seen more of Marisa's interactions with the ladies than Faye's. It will be interesting to see if Bravo brings her back next season.
