Of all the women in Bravo's Real Housewives empire, few have proven quite as polarizing as Kyle Richards. To some, she's the queen of Beverly Hills. To others, she's as outdated as last year's Birkin. From child star to happily married housewife, this is the stunning transformation of Kyle Richards.
It may have been famously little, but the property in which Richards' acting career kicked off also happens to be one of the most well-known in entertainment history.
Her first major role was as Alicia Sanderson Edwards on beloved TV series, Little House on the Prairie. Richards first appeared in 1975, recurring on the show all the way up until 1982, when she was just hitting her teens.
Ahead of hosting a 17-episode marathon of the beloved show in 2016, Richards gushed to NBC about how much fun it was to be part of the show as a child, comparing it to quote, "going to camp." She admitted to sometimes being stressed these days, by our tech-obsessed society, jokingly pointing out how everyone on Little House on the Prairie was able to survive without a cellphone.
