Product Description

From the Back Cover

In the wild world of Beverly Hills, high-priced glam squads, flashy cars, and off-the-charts drama are the norm. Enter Kyle Richards: born and raised in the nation’s most dazzling neighborhood, she’s practically royalty in the 90210 zip code. And yet her loving family life, lack of pretention (no nannies, stylists, or personal chefs for this diva), and “girls’ girl” attitude make her a breath of fresh air on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Now, she’s revealing how she achieves that perfect mix of celebrity and normality. In this collection of the best tips, advice, and strategies she knows, Kyle’s talking friend to friend so you can create that blend of glitz and know-how in your own life:

Family

Kyle’s a hands-on parent who shares how she’s raising her four daughters to be self-sufficient, compassionate, and—above all—not spoiled. (Kyle grew up in a family of all women with her extraordinary mother teaching all the children her unique take on life.)

Men

Being married to Mauricio, a devoted husband and wonderful father, Kyle is often asked what makes a happy and lasting marriage. She shares all of her best advice for keeping a marriage strong and, for single women, how to find the perfect partner.

Hair

Would you believe those famously luscious locks are courtesy of drugstore shampoo? Turns out Beverly Hills style doesn’t have to cost a fortune!

Beauty

Kyle’s beauty routine is practical and never too trendy. She shares her secrets for choosing the best lip glosses, blushes, creams, and cleansers, and explains how you can look gorgeous even if you’re on a budget. (Her tips on applying glam-inducing false eyelashes alone are a must read.)

Entertaining

After years of soirees fit for the Hollywood elite, Kyle knows what it takes to throw a party your friends will talk about for years...without breaking the bank.

Childhood memories, tales from behind the scenes of The Real Housewives, warm and hilarious family stories—Kyle’s sharing all.

Stop imagining what it’s like to live in the country’s most glamorous zip code...and start trying out the good life yourself!

An awful book, I'm not sure how she got a book deal.
It is all fluff and not at all interesting or anywhere near worth the money.

Save your pounds, I wish I had!

I chose this poor rating because I think the book, is not worth the money.

Kyle Richards has a huge ego, is not a good writer, and the book is basically very very boring. The only interesting fact is that she uses "Pantene" hair products! Otherwise, the contents are banal.

Not recommended! Lisa Vanderpump's book is much better, buy that instead.

Disappointing purchase really wish it had contained more of a biography of Kyles life instead of the constant "I love being a great Mum" or "how fit is my husband" crap on every other page

Enjoyable, easy to read book which I completed in just over a day, it can be irritating how she constantly gushes about her husband and constantly puts ha or ha ha at the end of sentences when she's trying to be funny. I think it's sweet that she sees her self as ordinary because she doesn't have nannies or a driver take her kids to school etc etc, but i'm sorry honey your life is in no way ordinary. She does however try her best to be down to earth through out the book. I'd recommend this books to Real house wives fans only.

If you love RHOBH then I don't see how you can't like this! It's part autobiography and part self-help guide. Kyle tells you her beauty secrets, her background, her relationship with her sister Kim and dishes the dirt on the show. There are lots of lovely glossy photos too. I am a true fan of Kyle's and the show so for me it's a winner. If you're not a fan...avoid! You'll find it shallow and annoying!!!

Didn't know what to expect from this book, but found it to be very interesting and held a lot of helpful tips that I will now be putting into practice. There is no disputing that Kyle Richards is a down to earth lady who puts family and friends first. Being a male some of the makeup tips etc. didn't apply to me, but I was able to relate to almost everything else.

Kyle is just the best of all the Housewives. She's fresh, funny and a real role model. She's a mum of four but the really cool mum. She gives good advice and this book is so easy to read that it might be nice to read it twice. It's a mix of advice and stories about her life and her experience.
