At BravoCon, Kyle Richards broke down in tears when talking about her ongoing divorce from spouse Mauricio Umansky. While the cast of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills discussed her music video featuring country singer Morgan Wade, 28, with whom she has been linked for months, Kyle, 54, responded to Lisa Vanderpump, 63, expressing “empathy” for her during their breakup, and a new trailer for season 13 revealed Mauricio’s possible infidelity.
“So you’re implying that my spouse had an affair with me?” In the tape, which aired during a BravoCon RHOBH panel, Kyle poses this question to her castmates.
“Did I say that?” Sutton Stracke, 52, replies.
“Kyle can’t get new jewelry and Kyle can’t get fit? Is that what we’re saying, essentially?” Annemarie Wiley, 40, wonders.
“I guess so,” Kyle notes. “And by the way, making it even worse, I said at the retreat, ‘This hasn’t been our best year being married.’ We’ve had a hard time. I’ve not had a great year. I shared this at the retreat so it feels like a low blow. Is that not enough for you guys?”
“Sure,” Sutton responds.
But Kyle wasn’t done.
“Do you want more? Do you want my husband to have cheated and bought me that band — that he did not buy me? He did not. I bought it myself.”
Meanwhile, in a confessional, Garcelle Beauvais, 56, says that while there has been talk about the ring, that isn’t the main issue at hand.
“I believe Kyle is reluctant to confront the major issue at hand. Do you have a problem in your marriage? Not who purchased the ring, but that is the question, she says. “Is that relevant?”
Despite their long-standing animosity stemming from their season nine drama with Dorit Kemsley’s former dog, Kyle acknowledged being grateful for Lisa’s encouraging remarks on the red carpet this past weekend.
“I really appreciate that a lot and Lisa also has a long marriage and a successful marriage [to Ken Todd]. I still consider Mauricio’s and my marriage a successful marriage and even the way we’re handling it now, I feel like we’re doing it the right way, as best as you possibly can. So I really appreciated her words,” Kyle shared. “It was very kind of her.”
Kyle was then seen discussing her music video with Morgan with her castmates.
“I actually thought it was maybe, you were telling everybody that you’re in a relationship,” Crystal Kung-Minkoff, 40, suspected.
“You thought what? That I was telling everybody? No. That’s not what it was,” Kyle replied.
“That’s what I thought it was,” Crystal added.
Then, after Kyle confirmed her family knew she was making the video before she did and Erika Jayne, 52, admitted she hadn’t seen it, Dorit, 47, recalled confronting Kyle about the racy compilation.
“I remember saying to Kyle, I think you and I had dinner shortly after… Just before the video, Kyle started to get a lot of heat on social media and the headlines and all of the sudden the video came. But she had filmed the video beforehand,” Dorit shared as Kyle added, “way beforehand.”
“Kyle, do you think that was a good idea?” I asked her. There’s a lot of talk already. You know, Dorit, we filmed this ages ago before the headlines,” she remarked. So that was just unfortunate timing,” Dorit clarified.
At one point on the RHOBH cast’s BravoCon panel, Kyle broke down in tears as she talked about her breakup with Mauricio.
“All I want to say is that many people ask themselves, ‘What am I doing?'” Just gather everything together and fix it. That’s obviously what I’m after. She said, “This is obviously not my fairytale,” accepting a tissue. “I apologize. In any case, thank you very much for your support.
