Mauricio Umansky Clarifies His Relationship Status
Both Kyle and Mauricio have made it clear that they’re “separated,” and during his most recent podcast appearance, Mauricio elaborated on what he meant by that.
He remarked, “Everyone wants to know about my marriage; you know, we’re just regular people, and I do too.” “We’re normal human beings going through a struggle, we’re going through issues like everybody else does.”
“There’s no playbook for how to deal with it,” Mauricio continued. “We’re humans, and it doesn’t change on a daily basis. If we’re separated that means we’re giving each other time to allow things to happen.”
Why Kyle Richards Is Not Using the Word “Divorce”
Kyle also set the record straight on her and Mauricio’s separation at BravoCon 2023. More specifically, on BravoCon Live, Kyle explained that she previously “misspoke” on the BravoCon 2023 carpet. “Two times, I had to correct someone when they said ‘divorce,’ I said, ‘separated,'” Kyle said. “And then I went and said it, and then it went everywhere, so that was my bad. We’re still amicable.”

I mean, our phones were blowing up, my kids were just crying and wouldn’t leave the house, and it was really, really difficult.”
“But now, they’re much better,” she continued, “and they’re really strong and they’re they’re just so together and so smart and they’ve been my best, best, best friends, and I could not be more proud of them. They’re just amazing human beings, and thank God I have them through this.”
