The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star, 48, tells us what her niece Paris Hilton is really like…
Kyle, what can we expect from the new season of Real Housewives?
Where to begin?! We add a new dynamic to the season with a new housewife called Dorit [Kemsley]. At first people might be a little confused by her, but she’s great for the show. I’m involved in quite a lot of the drama.
There are lots of accusations about my sister Kim – it becomes explosive. She’s sober and happy right now, though. She’s doing great and she’s worked hard to get where she’s at. Her daughter has had a baby, so she’s with them all the time. She’s in a peaceful place and I’m so happy about that.
Have you ever come close to walking out on the show?
Several times. I’ve thought: ‘I can’t do this, it’s causing me too much stress and anxiety,’ a number of times. The show can be very difficult – especially when it’s arguments to do with my sister and our relationship.
How do you keep a good balance of being on the show and being a busy mum?
When we’re shooting the show there are things that I always like to do with my kids. I make sure that I’m always around to take them to school. And when I’m not shooting, that’s all I do. I’m a typical mum – I love to do the school run. And I find that taking time out to exercise is really key for that balance too. I’m in a better mood when I exercise, for sure.
What do you do in the gym?
I love cycling – I like to do it twice a week. And I’ll go to hot yoga classes too.
Do you see your niece Paris Hilton, much? What’s she really like?
I see Paris a lot. I see Nicky [Hilton] too – I see all of my nieces quite often. Paris is a lovely girl. She’s very eccentric – I don’t know if you’ve noticed!
Do you watch any of the other Real Housewives shows?
I like to dip in and out of Orange County and Atlanta.
