THE Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards is leaving the warm weather behind for a while as she joins the cast of The Real Housewives of the North Pole.
The 52-year-old reality star will still be feuding with her onscreen co-stars, just this time she’ll be doing so in a new Christmas movie for Peacock.

Kyle plays a “Christmas Queen” named Trish, while Breaking Bad alum Betsy Brandt stars as her former best friend, Diana.
Set in the North Pole (North Pole, Vermont, that is), the film follows as the longtime pals go from winning the Best Holiday House decorating competition for nine straight years to not wanting anything to do with one another.
The official synopsis adds: “Days before Christmas, a friendship-ending argument sparks a town-wide feud and draws the attention of a national magazine writer hoping to make a name for herself with her scintillating expose titled, ‘Real Housewives of the North Pole.’”
Currently filming in Utah, the new holiday flick is set to release later this year on Peacock.
Kyle shared a photo from set on Thursday of her chair, which featured both her real name and her character name, as well as her Kyle-stitched purse that say on top of it.
“I am so excited about this new project …. ,” she teased.
Right after the news was announced a short while later, she posted another picture, this one of the movie announcement, writing with it: “So happy to be working with this incredible actress @betsybrandt I can’t wait for you all to see it! ”
Hallmark mega-director Ron Oliver (Christmas at the Plaza, A Christmas Detour) is at the helm, switching to the streaming world for his latest flick.
It’s a family affair for the screenwriters of the film, as longtime co-writing couple Tippi and Neal Dobrofsky, who have penned more than 30 Christmas movies, are joined this time around by their son, Spyder.
