As one of the stars of the new Bravo show, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
, Kyle Richards hails from a family of fame and fortune. Richards is aunt to socialites Paris and Nicky Hilton and sister of Kathy Hilton.
A California native, Richards’ greatest passion is being a mother to her four children and wife to her husband Mauricio Umansky, a realtor with Hilton & Hyland. As a child, Richards spent most of her childhood on film and television sets and even acted in various roles such as Disney’s Escape to Witch Mountain, Halloween, and The Watcher in the Woods. Richards, who is considered a Demi Moore look alike, appeared on popular TV shows like Little House on the Prairie, ER, 7th Heaven, and Beverly Hills 90210.
Although she made appearances on Paris Hilton’s The Simple Life and My New BFF, Richards will once again step into the television limelight as she lets viewers in on a glimpse of the luxurious and pampered life she enjoys.
When she is not being a Beverly Hills socialite, Richards is a devoted cancer advocate and recently partook in a 68-mile bike marathon. She is also in the works to develop her own hair care line.
