The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards proudly shares her Irish ancestry

“I have studied the DNA genealogy [into my family background] And I’ve always known my mom is Irish, all of her family is from Ireland. But I thought my father was Welsh and turned out to be of quite Irish ancestry, so I am an all-Irish girl, and the only Irish housewife.”

Proud of the title, Kyle admits that it might be time to enlist some of the bred and bred of Celtic blood in the hugely successful reality series and believes former Beverly Hills resident Claudine Keane would make the perfect addition.
