Family drama can’t escape The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Star Kyle Richards. This time the chaos doesn’t revolve around Kyle’s sisters Kathy or Kim. Kyle’s latest drama is her separation from her husband of 27 years Mauricio Umansky.
According to People, the couple has been separated for a while and a source close to the family says they’re still living together as they figure out their next step.
How many children do Kyle Richards and Mauricio Umansky have?
This is the second time Richards has gone through a divorce. The actress was previously married to Guraish Aldjufrie, with whom she has a daughter Farrah Brittany, now 34. Richards and Aldjufrie’s marriage lasted from 1988 to 1992.
Two years after her split with Aldjufrie, Richards met Umansky in 1994 in a nightclub. The couple began dating and tied the knot in January 1996. Five months after their wedding, Richards gave birth to the couple’s first daughter Alexia Simone in June 1996. The couple would have two more daughters: Sophia born in January 2000 and Portia born in March 2008.
In 2010, Richards and her family became reality stars when she signed on for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Richards gave viewers a glimpse at home life with her husband and her daughters.
While Richards and Umansky seemed to have a solid marriage, they’ve now become part of the dreaded reality show curse that’s claimed many couples.
Separation rumors have plagued the couple
Richards and Umansky have been the topic of split rumors for some time. The rumors began after Richards was spotted out without her wedding ring. The couple’s marriage was the focus of a storyline on RHOBH with Richards defending her relationship amid her friends gossip.

“In regards to the news that came out about us today…Any claims regarding us divorcing are untrue. However, yes we have had a rough year. The most challenging one of our marriage. But we both love and respect each other tremendously. There has been no wrongdoing on anyone’s part.”
