Shoot with alligator 

Kyle Richards gave an interview on The Kelly Clarkson Show. In the interview, the actress shared some experiences while shooting for a movie. 

She also talked about Real Housewives. The interviewer started the interview by saying that she is not really into horror movies as it scares her so much. 

Kyle showed her appearance in the film "Halloween Kills." So she told the interviewer, Kelly, that she had to watch her movie, Halloween Kills

Although Kelly was scared of watching horror movies, she did agree to Kyle's new film, but Kelly told her that she was unsure that she could watch the whole film because she might turn it off at any point as horror movies scare the hell out of her.

Kyle then shared the experience that she had faced during that movie. She opened up that she got scared during the shooting. 

They were shooting in the nighttime, and her scene was to shoot with an alligator, and for that, she had to get into a swamp. 

Other people were watching her with the flashlight in the swamp. But she got scared doing that. 

It was four in the morning. But as she was there for her role play, she agreed to do that part. 

She then opened up about her castmate Sutton. She was staying in her house. 

Her friend Sutton asked her to stay with her for a month only, but Sutton lived there with her for years. 

Her friend sent her mail saying that they had a black spider on Kyle's house. For that, she told her friend to burn that house just because she hates spiders. 

She also broke her nose when she got into a fight with a stunt man while she was practicing. 

Kyle is a fearless actress as she had a lot of a hard time during shooting. 

Working For 12 Years In Same Show 

Kyle Richards gave an interview on the "Kyle and Jackie O" show, where she talked about her show RHOBH, cast members, and many more. 

The interviewer started the interview by appreciating Kyle for being the same over the years. 

The interviewer said that she has been watching RHOBH for a long time, and Kyle has remained the same as she saw her in the first season. 

The interviewer then asked Kyle how much she had to be on camera. Kyle said that she had to film five days a week. 

She doesn't have to be around the camera every second. Sometimes her cast does come to film when she and her family are having lunch and dinner. 

It's been 12 years since Kyle has been on the show RHOBH and whenever she and other girls go on trips, they do their hair and make-up by themselves. 

As she had been on the show for a long time, the interviewer asked her if she had ever thought of quitting the show. 

For that, Kyle said that the thought of leaving that show had struck her many times. 

While doing seasons 2,4 and 5, she thought she should quit it. When she first joined the cast of RHOBH, it was great, but slowly, many old characters started leaving the show, and new people were introduced to their place. 

The present cast she is working with is excellent, and if the cast tries to bring the older people back into the show, she would want Brady to be back on the show. 

When she did the old season with Brady, she was scared of her, but now they have great friends and are constantly texting each other. 

After that, the interviewer asked Kyle about her daughters. Her many co-star's daughters have pursued modeling careers, but in the case of Kyle's daughters, her daughters are businesswomen. 

They are doing business, and they are very smart.
