Maren Morris Reveals Private Support For Kyle Richards Amid Separation


When times are bad, we all need a buddy by our sides, and for Kyle Richards, that someone is Maren Morris.

The country music artist talked on how she has helped the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star get through the difficulties of her continuous split from husband Mauricio Umansky.

Maren Morris is sending her love to Kyle Richards

On Watch What Happens Live, Maren admitted that she’s been messaging Kyle. “I’ve been texting with Kyle,” she said. “I feel for her. I can’t even imagine that long of a relationship. She’s going through something, and we’re all watching it through a public lens. She’s a human being that’s going through a tough thing.”

Maren probably felt even more empathy with her friend as she also recently split with her husband, Ryan Hurd, after five years of marriage. Similar challenges probably inspired her to show solidarity with the RHOBH star.

Changing priorities

Following Kyle’s candid admission on the November 15 episode of RHOBH about their growing distance from Mo as she pursued health and fitness, Maren made her confession.

She mentioned to Dorit Kemsley that she had made the decision to sober up and that she simply didn’t want to go to functions with her husband, a real estate billionaire. You are aware of his passion for drinking. I’m expected to attend a lot of company functions as the understanding spouse. It seems like I don’t want to attend these gatherings sometimes.


During a confessional, Kyle reiterated how her newly-chosen, alcohol-free life impacted her relationship.

“Mo is in sales, and a big part of that is putting yourself out there and being social,” Kyle said. “And I’m at a place in my life where I don’t want to do that. I would much rather be home reading than going to an event, especially since I don’t drink anymore.”

Furthermore, their marriage may have problems in the future as a result of this change in priorities.

“I’m not happy with the way my relationship is right now,” Kyle acknowledged. He’s really focused on his profession, and I’m working on myself on the inside. We seem to be evolving in separate directions as a result. A few years from now, I don’t want to wake up and wonder, “Who are you? What topic should we discuss right now?

How will this progress throughout the season? We’ll just have to wait and see.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on Bravo.
