The star of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, aged 54, met Mauricio Umansky, aged 53, in 1994,and they tied the knot in January 1996. Together, they have three daughters: Alexia, 27, Sophia, 23, and Portia, 15. Umansky also acts as a stepfather to Richards’ daughter Farrah Aldjufrie, 34, from her previous marriage to Guraish Aldjufrie. Just before reports of their split emerged, the couple shared a photo on their Instagram Stories, celebrating Faye Resnick’s birthday. Richards expressed her love for Resnick and tagged both her friend and her husband in the caption. Umansky reposted the photo on his own Instagram Story
There was speculation about Richards and Wade wearing rings, but another round of rumors surfaced last spring when Richards was seen without her wedding ring during an outing. In April, Umansky appeared on the podcast “Two T’s In a Pod” with Teddi Mellencamp and Tamra Judge, where he dismissed the divorce rumors, labeling them as baseless. Richards did not address the split on social media and instead shared several pictures of herself with her longtime friend Faye Resnick in her Instagram Stories, wishing Resnick a happy 66th birthday.
Kyle’s fame predates her appearance on the Bravo series as she is the sister of Kathy Hilton and the aunt of Paris Hilton. Richards and her family gained public attention in 2010 when she became a principal cast member of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Kyle and Mauricio were always seen as one of the strongest and happiest couples in the Real Housewives franchise, despite the show’s track record. Kyle would occasionally get tipsy and show off her flexibility with splits, while Mauricio would find relaxation in other ways. They epitomized the love portrayed in reality television. Hence, the news of their separation is somewhat unexpected, especially since Richards recently posted an Instagram Story featuring Umansky and Faye Resnick, celebrating the latter’s birthday. Despite any emotional fulfillment concerns, Kyle and Mauricio still appear to be significant parts of each other’s lives
