Kyle and Kim Richards are chatting it up with every media outlet possible to push their appearance on tonight’s two-hour “Danger With The Stars: High Diving” special on Fox.
Kim Richards tells People:
“My sister and I had kind of a rough patch over the last couple of years and I thought [High Dive] would be a nice opportunity for Kyle and I to really bond,” Kim, 48, told PEOPLE. ”It took us actually a step beyond closer. We’re probably the closest we’ve maybe ever been … I really didn’t see any light at the end of the tunnel.”
HagfaceKyle tells TheClicker:
Q: Where do you hope the “Housewives” shows take you next.
Kyle: We both have kids. I have little ones still. Being a mom and a wife is my number one priority. The show and all that other stuff falls way underneath it. I also just opened my store (Kyle by Alene Too) in Beverly Hills. I am still acting. I just did ‘CSI.’ There are a lot of balls in the air. A lot of good opportunities have come with doing ‘Housewives.’ But there is also a lot of drawbacks. NOTE: What could the possible “drawbacks” be, Kyle? The interviewer fails to ask that very important follow-up question!
Q: You are going to keep doing it a little while longer?
Kyle: Don’t ask me today. We are under contract, so we’ll see where that goes.
Kim: I just take it on a day to day, minute by minute. My biggest passion in my life — besides life — is my jewelry. I love my jewelry. My passion is my jewelry. I might have a few other things up my sleeve — more like hobby passions.
Q: Kim, did it take you a while to be at peace with how much of your personal life was exposed on ‘Housewives?’
Kim: It was really how much I wanted to let go of my own life to everyone. I am a very private person, but I am also a public person. So it is how much I decided to just surrender to everyone. I think it was really just a matter or when I decided to give it all up and say ‘It is what it is.’
NOTE: Something bothersome caught my eye while over at “TheClicker” site.
The creator of the new show, “TheFollowing” commented on his new show, which will air on Fox:
“It’s a horrific, scary show,” creator Kevin Williamson told reporters on Tuesday at the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour in Pasadena, Calif.
He’s not putting it mildly. The drama features gut-churning scenes, plot twists that will surprise as Carroll’s reach from behind prison walls is revealed, and frightening lengths to which the killer’s admirers will go to please him — and ultimately, themselves.
“What happened in Columbine in a lot of ways sort of inspired some of this in a weird way,” Williamson said.
Why is this bothersome? With shows like “TheFollowing” being picked up … along with the shows airing now, which are templates for bad behaviors… is it any wonder that impressionable people who watch these shows act on their impulses?
There are shows which illustrate in detail how to be a drug addict and how to actually administer the poison to your system; there are shows which glorify serial killers and explain step-by-step their murderous acts. HOW did these programs make their way to air? WHY are people watching these shows? WHEN did freak shows and abnormal behaviors become the norm on TV? Yes, we all have the power to turn the channel. However, when that channel is turned and what is found is the very same subject matter (or worse), there is something definitely wrong.
Even the commercials seem like one has stepped into bizarro land. Recently saw a cereal commercial where the parents were coaxing their just-woke-up-totally-unkempt son to eat breakfast cereal. The parents were relieved when the kid said he liked the cereal. IMO, the parents looked scared to death of the kid! Were they afraid that the kid was watching the TV shows detailing the ways in which kids have killed their parents?
Bothersome, frightening and bizarre.
