One of Kyle Richards’ “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” co-stars spoke out about her separation from her husband Mauricio Umansky. In July 2023, a source told People that Richards and Umansky “have been separated for a while now” but are still living together. They have been married for 27 years.
While most of Richards’ RHOBH co-stars have been quiet about her separation, during a July 13 appearance on “Watch What Happens Live,” Beauvais was asked by host Andy Cohen if Richards’ marriage was “a topic of conversation” during filming for season 13. “Yes, for sure,” Beauvais replied. “Yes, Sutton [Stracke] and I were suspicious.”
Beauvais also revealed if she has spoken to Richards since her separation was announced. “I sent her a text asking her if she was okay and she said ‘I’m hanging in there,’” the RHOBH star said.
Beauvais previously told Page Six she reached out to Richards when she heard the news. “I just texted her and said, ‘[Are you] OK?’ And she replied — I didn’t expect a reply for days — but she just said she’s hanging in there,” Beauvais said a few days before her WWHL appearance.
