Speaking out against cyber-bullying

Richards is an outspoken advocate against cyberbullying, especially considering she became a victim of it herself. She had to deal with comments and photos shared on social media of herself that were not flattering. This prompted her to come up with a clothing line called Kyle by Alene Too that features the phrase “Be Nice or Be Gone” on its T-shirts. The line has been endorsed by other celebrity figures such as Chrissy Teigen, Jenelle Evans, and many more.

Richards is currently on “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills”, she’s the perfect example of a strong woman who knows how to stand up for herself and loves her family, which is exactly why we think she would be an amazing addition to the cast! She’s been on TV since the 90s when she was a model who appeared in magazines such as GQ, Seventeen Magazine, and many more. She later decided to go into acting, and has been on hit shows such as “Beverly Hills 90210” and “Entourage”. She even went on to host her own show called “Top Model” alongside supermodel Tyra Banks! We think Kyle would be a great addition to the Real Housewives of Orange County because she loves being an entrepreneur, and we feel like she would fit right in with the cast.

Kyle is a philanthropist and a renowned businesswoman. She has been involved in social events such as the Make-A-Wish Foundation and has been listed on Forbes Woman’s list as one of the “50 most powerful women” of 2012.

She also launched 2 different projects called The Kyle and Alene Too Show in the 2011 season 5 premiere of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” and “Season 6” of “Beverly Hills 90210”, which will air later in 2014.

In conclusion

The young girl seemed meant to be a star rather than just a kid on television. Despite having only appeared in 18 episodes, young Alicia had a potential talent alongside great actors like Michael Landon and Melissa Gilbert.

She probably had no idea how successful her career would become in the future, at least not to this point. She’ll probably smile, looking back on those earlier times. She succeeded in making a significant breakthrough early in her acting journey.

Little House on the Prairie seems to be her favorite as she always watches it together with her family.

She has always been proud of whatever she does and once admitted to having surgeries twice as her she had her nose job. The 52 years iconic actress still looks dashing as ever and we all agree on this whether you hate or like her.
