Relaxed comfort meets a "touch of bling" at her Bel Air manse.

on Oct 17, 2013 - The Dish

Kyle Richards has always been a bit of a Beverly Hills anomaly. Sure, she's a glamour girl who touts the benefits of plastic surgery, but she's also a self-proclaimed homebody who became a mother at 19 and has never employed a nanny.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star recently gave Parade magazine a peek inside her seven bedroom, eight bathroom Bel-Air home, which perfectly reflects both sides of her personality.

"It's a combination of relaxed comfort with just a 'lil touch of bling," Kyle says. "I mean, I have a chandelier in every room, including the closet and bathroom!"

One highlight from the shoot is a glimpse inside Kyle's huge walk-in closet (above), with its rows of Chanel bags and designer stilettos and racks of color-organized frocks. "I'm a bags and shoes woman," Kyle said. "Even if you don't feel great about your body, put on a fantastic pair of heels and it always helps."

However, some items in the closet, like the black Jill Stuart dress she wore during Season 1's infamous limo fight with sister Kim Richards, carry memories that don't make Kyle feel so good.

"There are outfits in this closet that I can't ever look at again. They remind me too much of times I just don't want to revisit." The mother of four girls added, "Honestly, I only keep them because my daughters might want them one day. I can't stand the sight of them, but that doesn't mean they should be hidden away forever."

Kyle also opened-up about her marriage being the subject of infidelity rumors. Regarding tabloid stories about her husband real estate agent Mauricio Umansky, Kyle tells the magazine's Falene Nurse, "Honestly, they just go after whatever it is you care about the most."

On the future of her marriage, Kyle lets her home to the talking. A sign that reads "And they lived happily ever after" hangs in the corner of a cozy family room.
