“Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Kyle Richards revealed how her estranged husband, Mauricio Umansky, felt in regard to her sister and former castmate, Kathy Hilton remarking on their separation.
While being interviewed by RHOBH alum Teddi Mellencamp for Extra TV at Hilton’s DIRECTV Celebrates Christmas event on November 29, Richards discussed Hilton’s November 27 “TODAY with Hoda & Jenna” appearance. In the “TODAY with Hoda & Jenna” interview, Hilton suggested she believes Richards will not rekindle her romance with Umansky, stating, “There’s no way that Kyle would have gone this far unless she really thought about it.”
In the Extra TV interview, Richards stated she reached out to Umansky to let him know about Hilton’s comments. According to the “Halloween Ends” actress, the “Buying Beverly Hills” star did not seem bothered by the remarks.
“I texted Mau. I’m like, ‘I know you are going to see this.’ And he’s like, ‘I just saw, I’m not even looking at these things anymore. I’m not going to do any deep dives.’ You know, we see so much. And it’s upsetting,” said Richards.
Kyle Richards Stated That She Has Not Told Her Sisters Much Information About Her Marriage
In the Extra TV interview, Richards stated that while Hilton and their sister, Kim Richards, are supportive, they are not privy to every aspect of her relationship.
“I haven’t shared with my sisters really anything about what’s really going on in my marriage to be honest. That’s a fact,” said Richards. “And I have my few people that I share everything with … But I tend to keep to myself when I’m going through a difficult time. So when she said that, I was like, ‘Oh my gosh. That’s just going to start a whole thing too.'”
The mother of four also clarified that she did not believe Hilton was being malicious when she made the comments regarding her marriage.

Kyle Richards Shared She Was Worried About Her Relationship With Kathy Hilton in November 2023
During a November 2023 interview on the “Bravo’s Hot Mic” podcast, Richards shared she was concerned about her relationship with Hilton. She explained that she managed to make amends with her eldest sister following tumultuous interactions in RHOBH season 12. Richards suggested, however, that she made negative remarks about Hilton while filming RHOBH season 13 because she did not believe they could fix their relationship.
“Now I’m stressed that, you know, ‘What did I say in the moments where I thought we were done?’ Because I don’t want that to kick everything up. And ruin my relationship again. So that scares me,” said the 55-year-old.
Richards stated that she hopes that Hilton understands that she “said these things when [she] was upset.”
“I really hope it doesn’t damage our relationship. Because I’m so happy when we’re in a good place,” continued Richards.
