Richards also clarified that the Netflix series is “not a spin-off show” of the popular Bravo franchise.

“It’s a TV show on Netflix with my husband Mauricio and my two daughters, Farrah and Alexia,” she said. “It’s based on The Agency, our company, and it’s going to follow them for, I think, eight episodes.”

Earlier this month, Richards told PEOPLE that he once said he would never allow his daughters to follow in his footsteps on television.

Richards realized that he “totally swallowed my words” and said, “A few years ago, [I was quoted as] saying I would never let my daughters do reality TV.”

With the reality series set to launch soon, the TV personality added, “Here are those words that come back to bite me.”

She explained that “because it’s a business show focused on our company, The Agency, they decided to do it. They are women entrepreneurs and my husband is a businessman.”

“I can’t wait for the haters to say, ‘You said you would never let your daughters [be on TV]'” Richards continued. “I know, guys. I’m taking it out there. I said that.”
