While speaking to her friend and former RHOBH castmate, Teddi Mellencamp, who was representing Extra TV at Kathy Hilton’s DIRECTV Celebrates Christmas event on November 29, Richards shared she had a pleasant time with Umansky over the holiday. She explained that despite their issues they “get along” and “don’t argue.” She also noted that their daughters, Farrah Aldjufrie, Sophia Umansky, Alexia Umansky, and Portia Umansky, and “a couple friends” also attended the dinner.
In addition, the “Halloween Ends” star shared that she, Umansky, and their daughters “all watched TV the next day.”
“We watched a movie together. So it was nice to be able to have that,” said Richards.
She then suggested that she is upset about her separation from Umansky, whom she wed in 1996.
“I mean I never expected to be in this position in a million years. And obviously it’s not ideal, but I feel proud of the way that we are navigating through this difficult time,” said Richards.
