One of Kyle Richards' most beloved roles from her child star days is as the kid Jamie Lee Curtis babysat in Halloween, the 1978 feature film that remains a classic in the horror genre. A remake of the movie comes out in October with Curtis reprising her role, but you won't see The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills mom in the movie.
That is not at all by choice, as Kyle admitted when Us Weekly asked her if she's making a cameo.
“I really wanted to be so badly," she said. "And I’ve never done this in my life. . . I literally reached out and said, ‘Can I be in it in any capacity? I’ll be an extra. I’ll do anything.’ But they didn’t think that it was going to fit in with the story or something.”
It might not have been so easy to simply slip Kyle into the movie. The script for the new Halloween actually took 80 drafts over eight months to perfect.
“That’s probably the number one thing next to Little House on the Prairie, or now The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, that people ask me about," she explained. "So it’s just something that I feel really proud to have been a part of. It’s such an iconic film. And I have a lot of memories from that, which I don’t have from all the things I’ve done. For some reason, it really sticks out in my mind.”
