Kyle Richards was a child star, but will acting run in the next generation of her family?

“The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star and her sisters, Kim Richards and Kathy Hilton, all have acting resumes that date back to the 1970s. Kyle Richards was just five when she landed her first TV role in a 1974 episode of “Police Woman.” She also appeared in the 1978 horror classic, “Halloween,” and had recurring and starring roles on “Little House on the Prairie,” “Carter Country,” “Down to Earth,” and more, according to IMDb.

In 2021, Richards and “Breaking Bad” alum Betsy Brandt co-starred in Peacock’s first original holiday film, “The Real Housewives of the North Pole,”  per The Hollywood Reporter.

Richards played Trish, a resident of North Pole, Vermont, and winner of the town’s holiday decorating contest for nine years in a row.

One year after the film made its debut, Richards got fans in the holiday spirit by posting a scene from the TV movie on Instagram. In the clip, her character is confronted by some sassy Girl Scouts, and the leader of the pack is played Richards’ youngest daughter, Portia Umansky. According to IMDb, Umansky is credited as playing “Girl Scout Catherine” in the film and it is her first and only acting credit on the site.

In the comment section, Richards’ daughters Farah and Alexia reacted to say how much they love the movie. But other followers did a double take after realizing who played the head Girl Scout.

“Did I see PORTIA!!” one fan asked.

“Portia did so well in this scene,” another wrote.

“Portia made me chuckle … the face … at her mother … she was perfect, she must have loved doing this. Definitely on the Christmas watch list, “another fan chimed in.

“Loved you in this movie! Also, Portia making her debut was the best,” another wrote to Richards.
