“The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast members want to make sure that they are shown in the most flattering way possible, and have input over how they are seen on the Bravo hit series,” begins a piece on RadarOnline, which is wrong from the start.
The webloid says that when the women were filmed on vacation in Hawaii, “Kyle Richards told producers not to show her from the chest down while she was in swimwear.”
The blog reports that while most of the other ladies sported bikinis, “Kyle was in a flattering black one piece bathing suit, and was only shown from the chest up.”
According to RadarOnline, “The Housewives receive screener copies of the upcoming episode a week before it airs, and one of the reasons is to make sure they are satisfied with how they look.”
“If the women aren’t happy with how they look, producers have enough time to edit and make changes to make them happy,” a so-called “source” tells the blog.
Stop right there.
This is 100 percent NOT TRUE.
First of all, let’s say for argument’s sake that Richards wasn’t happy with one of the shots — the producers would cut out the whole scene?
A source who’s actually involved with the show slams the RadarOnline story, noting, “The cast does not have any input after the show is shot,” adding that if everyone could weigh in on how they look, “the show would never make it to air… It’s a reality show.”
Of course, RadarOnline is the same webloid that not only wrongly reported that Kyle’s sister, Kim Richards, had left rehab before she actually did, but also fabricated quotes from sources discussing how she was no longer at the treatment facility.
