Mauricio Umansky Reveals He, Kyle Richards Are Separated
On September 29, Umansky broke to TMZ that he and Richards are going through “a really hard time.” Although he confirmed that they’ve broken up, Umansky stated that they’re not talking about divorce. Noting that they are humans with “emotions,” he mentioned that they are dealing with the issue “internally.”
“It’s very hard when people interpret everything you’ve said,” he said. “When I answered the question on that podcast about where we stand, the question was, ‘Did Kyle and I plant the story in order to create ratings?’ And the answer was we did not plant the story.”
Previously, Umansky told the Red Mic podcast that he and Richards were “not separated” and “not divorced.” Now, he’s shedding light on the issue, stating that he hasn’t called it quits with the socialite when the breakup news broke.
Amid the separation, Umansky noted that he since had “conversations” with their daughters and other family members. Consequently, such talks have brought them “closer together.”
As he currently deals with the family drama, he said that his Dancing With the Stars season 32 experience has been “super therapeutic.” According to the real estate broker, the reality show “could not have come at a better time.”

Before this moment, a paparazzi at Los Angeles International Airport had the chance to ask her about their family drama. Then, Richards admitted that she and Umansky are already “separated.”
“I’m sick of hearing about it. I’m sure everyone else is sick of hearing about it,” she said.
When asked whether there was “any chance” she and Umansky can “work through this,” she stated that her answer is “private information.”
