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!
