But how does my next guest keep it together the author of light is not a reality show the star real housewives of Beverly Hills Kyle Richards.
On your right in the glamorous it somewhat clumsy Faye Resnick went.
Give our best frankly this is is on the left keeping it real with the housewife who does -- all.
But my first question I've written it on the book and seen it like there's not a reality show but is your reality show real life.
Absolutely it is there's a little misconception about that tell us I shall not scripted it is not script that is not lightly scripted like some reality shows it is all very much -- there's many times I was second.
Blame it on the script believe me.
But it's -- So.
It it is that I take your your word then that is an intimacy in your allowing perfect strangers into your pocket your bathroom to -- it absolutely and any ever have any misgivings.
Many times you know when I had argued that my sister last season I have a lot of regrets we'll -- then you -- that I'll -- someone else I think outside -- -- relive it over and over again.
But I had a a lot of regrets actually think there was and -- percent.
-- I was that the fight right there that's what does this season now.
-- know this but.
-- and -- didn't do what form does the regret take did you ever think of bailing out of the program.
Many times I think all of us have quit at one time where the other said we're pretty inning and we couldn't take it anymore it's very difficult and in on the have the -- have a public.
Think there's someone you're not as a painful because not one moment as some -- -- name judge you on that one moment it's very difficult but don't they.
The produces portray when a certain way and aren't you the good girl and and -- I don't think the approach portray and mean not at all I think that you know we all have our moments good and bad and you know.
We're the latest say the one thing there's something you really don't -- you can be sure that it's gonna make it to.
There so there's things that you know they'll focus on -- my strength at times but.
I don't -- think that we're pretty fairly portrayed.
And how did you meet today.
I'm interfaith and then they describe that relationship I and that -- -- move my sister Kathy and Chris Jenner.
And that we act very close she's like a sister to me and she's a friend dear dear friend who -- -- -- and do you a lot of fighting each other.
I think everything I kidding I know everything I can tell exactly -- -- thinking about it saying it's a I think it's an eyebrow -- -- -- actually -- and had you feel about this.
This notoriety in your life.
Let me tell well you know I I don't really like a lot of underwriting -- I like being a designer I -- -- business place com it's peaceful.
But Kyle pulls me in every now and then because well at first she kind of needed to -- because -- -- one with Kris.
And he was really friends of course have to you know bring a Whitney and I kind of got Alley cat had been here on the show honored to see her because she's so this is -- now.
With book tour and everything and all of the kids crazy.
And -- people respond when they see you did they respond as if they are intimate friends of yours because they see so much of your life.
Through the plentiful and then they do more out there really -- and joining us.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I was kind -- signature I'm honored to go ahead and and it.
But she watches the episodes for five times she's obsessed with it is that the typical -- Absolutely I have people coming up to me and just tell me you know I'm obsessed with the show and had people telling me that you know.
It's gotten them through it illness and -- saved their lives because they had some down and they love -- wrapped up in the -- it's amazing the response of the show.
But you know because you are the good girl and I I don't mean that in which -- way at all -- -- terms of the aura.
Your advice is and this is mainly in the fight advice because there is more memoir but it big of a lot of -- -- And one of the things you say or at least I haven't done the exact sentence.
If one of view you or your husband cheat.
One time that's OK that wasn't me that that can't hasn't taken out of context I was referring to and situation with a friend of mine.
Nobody here -- who made a mistake and she came meaning she was very distraught she's on the go until my husband I have to -- -- law.
He's gonna -- you I can promise you he's -- -- you and I know that you're -- me the beautiful marriage.
I think he should just say they acknowledge it within yourself and with -- got whatever you need to do to move on.
And it did not happen and -- together all these years later I cannot condone says she never told -- -- articles of your -- should never -- Confessed right and that's exactly sanctioned never this is not for repeat offenders by any means is that one topic what's right right but today there.
Now I'm angry at that point there's something dancing around.
Now both of you spent time with Taylor Armstrong.
You know whose husband Russell obviously committed suicide it was -- -- must -- shocking things ever.
In a reality show and it seemed as if the show.
You know would be the context in which his story was portrayed.
Accelerated is is decline.
I don't know -- I'm not making any judgment but here is the confrontation.
With with Taylor and test.
And it went to start saying what -- mean.
I think we got it today -- -- that everything's okay.
But everything -- I don't think -- practically nothing.
You -- everything.
And be careful.
What you're saying there.
Because we're protecting you we have all -- I can't help and I -- but what you told us about your marriage.
What you told us about your -- we didn't think taxiing next year.
Because we don't say that he -- you know.
Because we don't say that he broke your job or that he tree and the -- yeah me and he he hits you.
We don't say that they now -- -- it.
Did you know that her marriage was as bad off as it.
Clearly was yes we -- with it.
We don't want to address it in front of the cameras because we didn't want to put her in any more danger.
We didn't want to and regulate exactly I talked to -- you know we both to -- lot about that.
Because you know if he was doing this at home won't happen if -- -- there.
That was gonna happen a lot -- he tried to dismiss it or brush over in front of the cameras because they're -- for safety but.
But playing with.
You have plenty unit you have a broader view of life did you know specifically that this woman is being held here physically and emotionally abused.
She told a file and over and over dinner has been hitter -- well yeah more than that he she told us that he broke the chop off her job cleanliness but right -- was termed.
-- -- -- -- from the whole thing came out.
And she also said it in the bathroom.
And well actually and everybody could hear it which we're all keeping -- a -- -- thinking.
You know we're protecting her but it was we'll -- curiosity and then when Russell -- -- -- I was in the walls I was crazy shocked at I couldn't believe I thought it was a hoax I just -- she was lucky obviously he -- killed her -- Unfortunately she lost her husband and you know she suffers today she was crying -- the -- again and again.
People think that she doesn't feel it she really feels that.
-- -- you think that the show had nothing to do with precipitated that well you know he was and such deep financial distress and everybody was coming after him.
He really got himself into a situation where he couldn't hiding more and -- -- come out of the woodwork we owed money and he just really.
Was having a hard time staying afloat and obviously someone who was you know abuse of this.
You know has issues as it is to Begin when you tell I really believe that it did not let me think of.
