Say WHAT?! RHOBH's Kyle Richards Says Wives Get "One Free Pass" to Cheat

Kyle wrote the book on free passes

Did Kyle Richards ever consider that one or all of her four daughters might one day read her new book?!

Or do the older girls already know that their mom thinks it’s okay for spouses to have an affair, as long as it’s just a one-time thing? (Luckily, two of her daughters are too young to read life guides by reality-show stars.)

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star just published Life Is Not a Reality Show: Keeping It Real With the Housewife Who Does It All.  Now, everyone’s talking about one particular section that reads, “If you cheat once, don’t tell. You get a free pass.”

(Gotten to that part yet, girls?)

On Good Morning America, Kyle admitted she expected some raised eyebrows over her views – but the criticism hasn’t changed her mind.

“I’ve seen circumstances with people that I know, [who] have made one mistake…” she told Robin Roberts in the interview (which was widely quoted in Us Magazine and elsewhere). “Listen, if this really was a one-time mistake, and you did not put this person in jeopardy, I personally think you should deal with it yourself and with God, and not go and say, ‘Honey, look what I did.’ Because I knew that would ruin their relationship and their life.”

Kyle quickly denied that she was talking about herself and husband Mauricio Umansky (who “still makes my heart melt,”) according to her website), but said that the couple-who-shall-remain-nameless is still together because the wife kept her mouth shut.

So now what can we expect from future episodes of RHOBH? Will we see Kyle telling oldest daughter Farrah or teen Alexia that it’s okay to sneak around on a boyfriend as long as she goes back to him eventually? And can’t you just see her as the mother of the bride in the not-too-distant future, telling the happy girl on her wedding day, “About your vows – you don’t really have to listen to that ‘forsaking all others’ stuff”?

I actually kind of hope one of her daughters does call Kyle on her pot-stirring statement. It would be great to be a fly on the wall for that conversation.
