The "Real Housewives" cast member explained her 2012 liposuction as a "battle with love handles," that is she happy to have won. As for her 2006 nose job, the "down size" helped her to feel less "self-conscious."

Kyle is not exactly a pioneer when it comes to elective procedures. Plastic surgery is pretty much a requirement of real housewifery. In the wise words of NeNe Leaks: "If anything falls, I pick it up."
