If there’s one thing Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Kyle Richards wants you to know, it’s that she’s not nearly as stuck-up as she appears on TV. In a new interview with The CW, the ‘mean girl’ explained that despite how rigid she looks on the show sometimes, she’s actually a real easygoing gal. Seriously!

“I'm a very happy person; I love to have fun, and I love life. But when I look at myself … I look like a different person,” the 42-year-old admits. Kyle blames stress and insists she’s “so not an uptight person.” We don’t know about that. We think we can safely say we’ve seen both sides of the brunette stunner! (The lady will do splits at the drop of a hat but balked at Brandi Glanville’s idea of hiring a porn star to teach them how to do a certain bedroom activity.)

In her interview, Kyle also explained why niece Paris Hilton has never appeared on an episode of RHoBH. Kyle explained that although she and the blonde bombshell are super tight, she wasn’t legally allowed to come on her show. “Paris was doing a show at the time,” Kyle explained. “There was a contractual thing that they weren't allowed to come on our show and vice versa.” Now that’s one cross-over we’d love to see!

Although Paris the Heiress wasn’t there in person, Kyle says she often channels her niece's strength to endure the pitfalls of being a celebrity. In fact, Paris talked her aunt into sticking with the show and encouraged her to just enjoy the ride. “Once I got into [reality TV], I turned to her and said I'm really having a hard time with this. I don't think I can do this anymore. She said this should be a fun time in your life, good or bad you can't listen to all things people say to you,” Kyle says, adding that she has a “newfound respect” for her sister’s superstar daughter.
