A Kyle Richards Self-Help Book Is a Preposterous Idea

17

kyle richardsThere are things Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards should do, and then there are things she shouldn't do. Writing a self-help book would fall under the category of things she should never, ever do in a million years, but unfortunately, what's done is done. The book, which is tentatively titled Life Is Not a Reality Show: Keeping It Real With the Housewife Who Does It All, is due in stores December 27. Just in time for, no wait, I mean, just after the holiday rush.

I used to like Kyle. In fact, on season one, she was my fave! She was everyone's fave! Then ... something happened. Kyle went over to the dark side. Fame went to her head and now she's a raging bitch who has a book deal.

Life isn't fair, is it. The saddest part about this whole thing is that my sorry-ass would've bought Kyle's book after falling in love with her last year, but now all I want to do with it is use the pages to line my cat's litter box. OK, I don't have a cat, but yeah, you get the point.

Kyle told Variety that she plans to focus on how she manages her crazy, busy life and will write about all her passions: Her husband, family, work, and the joy of juggling it all. Also to be included are healthy recipes, cooking tips, and parenting advice.

I'm sure it's chock-full of what she thinks are fabulous recommendations that will help us to lead our best lives, but she should write what she knows. This season, she knows a lot about being really, really snobby and rude.

I'm sorry, it's true. Her transformation or, rather, her decline as a human being from season one to season two has been hard to watch. She should write about how to act like a bitchy school girl when you're a 42-year-old mother of four, or write about how to forget the rules of civil arguments and instead get up in someone's face with your finger positioned two inches from their eye, or how to deny a sister's addiction and pretend like nothing's wrong.

I don't know, Kyle's happy-go-lucky book just no longer rings true to the character we've seen her display over the last few episodes. I don't want any advice from her because I no longer admire her.

Do you? Will you buy her book?

Seriously ?!?!?! Self help on how to be a mean girl...No thanks, we don't need her advice or help.

This is actually the first "Real Housewives" city I've had to stop watching because I actually think it's gotten beyond ridiculous to a whole new level--And after RHONJ and RHONY this year, that's saying a lot. After the first part of their "game night," I had enough.

I am always baffled why celebrities and rich people think that the rest of us need their advice. I love my "Real Life".

Kyle can keep her book, with advice from her the value is real low!

puke. She's hardly even a celebrity. It makes me laugh that all these real housewives think they are so famous.

Does it all?  Is it worthy of a book to care for your children without a nanny, and maybe clean part of your house?  If so, then I am recommending a book with me as a new author.  I put myself through college while getting a divorce and raising two kids and  operating a young cleaning business to pay the bills.


Kim could write a book about how many times in one hour you touch or flip your hair around.  She obviously is very experienced at that.

Maybe they should take advice from US. We should start writing books "Dear Celebrities"...
