After 27 years of marriage, the stars of “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” announced their separation in July. Thanksgiving was shared by Kyle Richards and her husband, Mauricio Umansky, four months after they announced their split.
On November 23, the 54-year-old Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star and the 53-year-old real estate agent shared pictures of their individual Thanksgiving celebrations on their Instagram Stories. Richards posted a video of her three German shepherds having fun around the house and tagged her divorced husband, who was visible in the background having a conversation with friends.
Meanwhile, The Agency CEO and founder shared clips of his Thanksgiving preparation to his Instagram Story. In one video, Umansky revealed that the hosts were expecting “15 or 16” guests at their home in Encino, California.
“Okay, the turkey has been cut, it has been cooked. Let me see the turkey,” he said to Richards, as she lifted up the lid of the serving dish to show the finished turkey. “Let me see the next one,” Umansky told Richards, who lifted up the remaining lids to show off their side dishes of mashed potatoes and peas.
He then panned his camera to reveal their second turkey and some freshly baked cookies, proclaiming: “We are good!”
The 27-year-married pair had a “rough year,” so the luxury real estate dealer sent a thank-you note to his fans. “I am appreciative of life and all the love and energy that it contains. Thanksgiving encourages us all to be grateful, which makes it one of my favorite holidays,” he posted on Instagram Story.
After 27 years of marriage, Richards and Umansky announced their separation in July. The reality TV stars insisted that the divorce rumors were “untrue” when it was reported that they were divorcing. The RHOBH alumni acknowledged that it has been a “tough year” and one of their “most difficult” marriages.
“But we both love and respect each other tremendously,” the couple shared in a joint statement. “There has been no wrongdoing on anyone’s part. Although we are in the public eye, we ask to be able to work through our issues privately. While it may be entertaining to speculate, please do not create false stories to fit a further salacious narrative.”
Richards and Umansky, who first met in 1994, have three daughters together: Alexia, 27, Sophia, 23 and Portia, 15. The RHOBH star was previously married to Guraish Aldjufrie, with whom she welcomed daughter Farrah Brittany, 34.
The Halloween actor debuted on Bravo’s RHOBH in 2010, and he has been a notable cast member ever since. In the meanwhile, Umansky is the hero of the Netflix reality series Buying Beverly Hills, which centers on his real estate company and the real estate careers of his two daughters, Alexia and Farrah.
Richards and Umanksy have celebrated the holidays as a family on previous occasions. The divorcing couple put up a united face by celebrating Independence Day together on July 4, only one day after they announced their split. The broker celebrated the Fourth of July at an air show and parade by posting a number of images and videos on Instagram.
“Happy Independence Day,” he captioned the post. “Hope everyone is having a great day.”
Most recently, Richards appeared on Watch What Happens Live with host Andy Cohen, where she revealed that she was the driving force behind their decision to separate. “It originated from me,” she said in October.
She also revealed that she and Umansky continue to live under the same roof amid their separation. “I let him stay in the primary bedroom,” Richards told Cohen, noting that she’s been staying on the second floor of their shared home.
While Richards and Umansky recently spent the Thankgiving holiday together, fans have been watching as the couple navigate their marriage during RHOBH season 13, which aired on 25 October. However, the real estate broker recently revealed that he’s decided not to watch the current season of the Bravo show.
“I am aware that everything is being dramatized. I don’t really want to see a lot of stuff because it will just make me feel like I’m the only one with more opinions and noise,” Umansky stated on November 16 on The Skinny Confidential Him & Her Podcast. The viewers of the show are all opinionated, and they simply aren’t aware that there are two other people who share those opinions. That is extremely, extremely challenging.
