'Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills' Star Kyle Richards Suffers Harrowing Breast Cancer Scare
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards is recovering after a breast cancer scare. During the May 28 episode of the show, the reality star broke down after her mammogram scan concerned her doctors.
Watch the recap!
Kyle made the decision to get a mammogram after she drove castmate Lisa Rinna to get hers.
Both Lisa and Kyle and lost their mothers to the disease so, waiting for the results were especially nerve-wracking.
Kyle, who learned of her mother’s cancer when she was 30, had an added layer of stress because her own daughter Farrah, was celebrating her 30th birthday that same night. The Halloween actress was terrified of history repeating itself.
When the doctors returned, Lisa got the all clear but Kyle wasn't so lucky. The doctor explained that Kyle needed to have additional scans.
After a few tense moments, during which Kyle paced around the empty waiting room, her doctor finally told her she was cancer-free.
Following the airing of the episode, Kyle explained her decision to include footage from her trip to the clinic. “I lost my Mom to breast cancer in 2002,” she tweeted. “The fact that she hadn’t had a mammogram in 5 years haunts me. I really wanted to show this to bring awareness re early detection and as a reminder to get checked.”
“I was scared to do this with cameras but felt it was important,” she added.
