LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Kyle Richards’ new book Life is Not a Reality gets a peculiar release date, hitting shelves today after Christmas. Kyle Richards’ new book about her home launches the same week in which Kyle throws Taylor Armstrong out of her house on RHOBH and in which Kim Richards battles rehab at the Betty Ford Center.
For RHOBH costars, however, there might never been any good time to launch a new book. Kyle Richards’ book is the third Beverly Hills housewives book to debut books within just weeks. Ironically, last season on OC Housewives, Lynne Curtin was angry enough that a single other housewife was moving into her own handbag business. This season on BH Housewives the question remains “who isn’t writing a book”?
So why should readers pick up a book about Kyle Richards? “You know I grew up in a family of all women… so I am the quintessential girls’ girl. I love sharing my life with people. I am a very open person.” Richards says she has a lot to tell in the book that people don’t see on Bravo. “I talk about my husband, our relationship.”
And while Patti Stanger has yet to comment on Kyle’s book, Richards gives her own matchmaking tips in the book. “I wanted to open my life and share my thoughts on everything on my personal life … how I get up and make snacks for my children in the morning.” She adds “I do have a glamorous life at time, but I’m still a mom and a wife. There are definitely tips and secrets in life.. First and foremost, you have to date your soul mate… you really have to be pretty perfect at first because life throws you a lot of fastballs.”
The publisher says of the book that Kyle “spills all her secrets about how to look good and live large while keeping it real, revealing how she achieves that perfect mix of celebrity and normality.
“She’s a real housewife whose first priority is her family, and she’s sharing her advice here on everything — from beauty to fashion to relationships.” The question is whether that alone is reason to buy yet a third housewife book within just weeks of each other.
