Kyle Richards on Kim Richards Being a Grandma

Former RHOBH star Kim Richards’ daughter Brooke Wiederhorn gave birth to her son Hucksley Andrew Wiederhorn on September 28, 2016.

As the current season of RHOBH season is playing out we are seeing just how excited Kim is becoming as the days are getting closer to her grandson being born, which is apparently nothing compared to how she is actually feeling as a grandma.

“Kim is so happy. She’s loving having a grandson. I still cannot say that. I can’t even believe that’s coming out of my mouth,” Kim’s sister, Kyle Richards, recently told The Daily Dish. “She’s in her element with that baby. The other day she posted a picture of her with her grandson on Snapchat with a filter. It was the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. Oh my God.”

Nicky Hilton Rothschild had a baby girl named Lily recently. “Kim’s grandson is the cutest thing. Sometimes I look, and I think, ‘Oh my God. He looks just like Brooke.’ And then the other night, I was like, ‘Gosh, he actually looks like Kim. His eye color and his hair. It’s crazy.’ So that part is really exciting,” Kyle gushed. “You know, my niece Nicky, she has a baby too, and I look at this baby, and I’m like, ‘Oh my gosh, the baby looks like Paris [Hilton]. It’s so weird.’ I love genetics.”

The two newest editions to the family has been great for everyone. “This Christmas, we were in Aspen, and my room was right next door to Brooke and Nicky’s room. So I got to be with the babies every morning and run over and see them wake up and play with them and lay with them.”

Kyle’s youngest daughter Portia Umansky has been in love getting to know her new cousins. “Portia, that’s all she wanted to do. She did not want to ski; she only wanted to be with her cousins. So it was really, really sweet to see her helping with the babies and the diapers and the bottles,” Kyle said. “It was really fun, because she didn’t get to have a little sister or a little brother, so this is the next best thing.”

Cousin Love ❤ Portia & Hucksley

It makes you wonder if Kyle is wanting to become a grandma. “I don’t know if you can be inspired to have a grandson. It has to be someone else’s choice. That’s the odd thing. You decide to become a parent; you don’t decide when you’re gonna be a grandparent,” Kyle said. “So my husband and I, being that we’re younger than Kim and my sister Kathy [Hilton], he’s always saying to me, ‘That is not happening to us for a while.’ I don’t even know what I would have my grandchild call me. I’ve already thought about this. I don’t think I could do the ‘grandma’ thing.”

  1. Kim looked FANTASTIC last night . The scene with Kyle at the boutique was the best I’ve ever seen Kim look! She was beautiful

  2. Best blessings to Kim on her road to healing. One of the things that I find striking about child stars of her generation is that more and more of them are coming out everyday and sharing their stories about the traumas and abuses they faced as children in the industry from the many adults around them. There is a part of me that wonders what kinds of horrors Kim must have faced coming of age in that environment that may have contributed to the demons she’s had to fight for most of her adult life- and part of me hopes that one day she’ll be able to turn her many life tests into a testimony that can help others that may have suffered through similar issues…if she wants to, of course, because life is all about choices. Honestly, though, I’m very intrigued by the era that was Kim’s heyday, and the phenomenon of child stars from that time. I think it’s important to note that very few of them have made it out intact. Kim appears to be part of a very small group of actors who have even made it out alive, let alone functional; so I’m happy to see that she is finding joy in her life, taking her sobriety one day at a time.

  3. Awww so beautiful. I really wish Kim only the very best. I’ve been more of a Kyle fan than Kim, but knowing what grandchildren do for your life, I really hope that that’s who she wants to wake up clean and sober to. And she is looking great in this episode which makes it so puzzling as to why Eden and LR are even thinking that she’s not sober. Well I know why LR is stirring that pot…..but Eden should recognize healthy when she sees it, right?
