Kyle Richards and estranged husband Mauricio UmanskyRelationship status is complicated — but that doesn’t mean love is gone.
“That’s a very interesting question,” he said Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Star, 54, said during her AmazonLive on Wednesday, August 30, when asked by a fan if she could “share how [she] and Mo is it?”
Richards admitted that her and Umansky’s split “was very difficult [because] It’s happening because so many people have their eyes on us [with us] be in the public eye.”
She explained that despite all the ups and downs, we “apparently care a lot about each other.” Richards cited her recent vacation to Europe with Umansky, 53, and her daughters as proof they get along well.
“That’s what I’m going to share with you,” Richards said, noting that “it’s just too much to deal with right now.”
Us weekly confirmed in early July that Richards and Umansky had taken a step back from their marriage after 27 years. “Kyle and Mauricio have been separated for a while but are currently still living together,” an insider told us at the time, explaining that the estranged spouses “are amicable while they consider next steps.”
Though the couple has yet to file for divorce, they confirmed their split on July 3 via social media. “All allegations regarding our divorce are untrue. But yeah, we’ve had a rough year,” Umansky and Richards said in a joint social media statement. “The biggest challenge of our marriage. But we both love and respect each other immensely. There was no wrongdoing by anyone. Although we are in the public eye, we ask that we be able to solve our problems privately.”
Later that month, a source exclusively shared Us that Richards and Umansky “almost ended their marriage”. However, when news of their split broke, “the two decided to give their relationship a little more nurturing and rebuild its foundation.”
The relationship crisis came shortly after Richards made headlines for her enduring friendship with the country singer Morgan Wade. While some of Richards’ confidants told it Us In July, they revealed she may have had an “emotional affair” with the 28-year-old singer. However, Richards denied that they were anything more than platonic friends.
“We’re very good friends,” Richards told photographers on July 7. When asked if the affair stories about her and Wade were “just a rumor,” she replied, “Yes.”
In August, Richards appeared in Wade’s music video “Fall In Love With Me,” in which the women shared several steamy scenes. After Richards shared a snippet of the video on Instagram, Umansky commented, “🔥🔥🔥 So good.”
A few weeks later, Richards and Umansky confused fans again when they flew to Italy as a family. The duo brought their three daughters, alexia27, Sophia23, and Portia15, as well as Richard’s eldest daughter, Farrah Aldjufire32, which she shares with her ex-husband Guraish Aldjufrie.
