Portia Umansky has a favorite “Real Housewives” star, the teen revealed during an Amazon Live with her mom, Kyle Richards, on January 19, 2023.
Umansky, 14, was on-hand to help Richards share some of their favorite Amazon Beauty products, from a plumping lip polish to a tinted hydrating gel, both of which can be purchased on Amazon through Richards’ affiliate link.
While sharing the products, Richards and Umansky took some time to respond to questions. When one fan asked Umansky to name her favorite “Real Housewives” star, she revealed it was Dorit Kemsley.

Portia Umansky Explained That Dorit Kemsley Is Very Thoughtful & Called Her the ‘Sweetest Person Ever’
During the Amazon Live, Richards encouraged her daughter to reveal her favorite “Real Housewives” star — but she also recalled when Umansky once put her in the hot seat by asking if Richards preferred Lisa Rinna or Lisa Vanderpump. Richards said cameras were rolling at the time.
“She looked at me and she said, ‘I like Lisa Rinna better,'” Richards said. The RHOBH OG added that she “didn’t hear the end of that for a very long time from Lisa Vanderpump.”
“That’s a hard one,” Umansky said, in response to the question.
“I think I know,” Richards said.
“I think Dorit [Kemsley] is my favorite, because Dorit is the sweetest person ever,” Umansky ultimately said. “Every time I’m like, ‘I’m hungry,’ she’s like, ‘What can I get you, my love? What can I get you? Let me go get you some food. What do you want?'”
Richards agreed, describing Kemsley as “super sweet.”
“We all get so much heat on the show and, you know, you either love people or hate people but she really is super sweet and really sweet with my girls,” Richards said.
Kyle Richards Said Everyone Is ‘So Sweet’ to Portia Umansky
Umansky was just a toddler when Richards joined “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.” And while the cast has changed over the years, several RHOBH stars have watched Umansky grow through different stages of childhood, Richards said.
“They are all so sweet to her, honestly,” Richards said. “They’ve all known her since she was a baby. They are all really sweet with her. Lisa Rinna. Erika [Girardi],” Richards said.
The conversation shifted back to beauty products, with a viewer asking Umansky how to apply makeup.
“Portia, do a tutorial!” Richards said.
The mom of four has praised her daughter’s makeup skills in previous interviews.
“She’s actually very good at it,” Richards told People magazine in 2018. “At first I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, what is she doing with the makeup?’ But for her it really is like an art form. I love makeup, so I don’t think she had a chance not to.”
Richards has four daughters: Farrah Brittany, 34, with former husband Guraish Aldjufrie, and Alexia, 26, Sophia, 23, and Portia with current husband, real estate mogul Mauricio Umansky. Farrah and Alexia appear with their father in the Netflix series, “Buying Beverly Hills.”
Page Six reported in June 2018 that Richards announced her youngest daughter wanted to become an actress.
“It’s very weird for me to take her to auditions,” Richards said at 92nd Street Y event, “Kyle Richards In Conversation,” Page Six reported. “It takes me back in time, all [of] the sudden, I’m my mom and she’s me.”
Page Six quoted Richards as saying Umansky had “a good attitude” about auditioning.
“She’s very good at it, she’s screen tested [and] she gets callbacks all the time,” Richards said, according to Page Six.
Umansky appeared in several episodes of RHOBH over the years, and starred with Richards in the 2021 Christmas film, “The Housewives of the North Pole,” playing the role of “Girl Scout Catherine,” according to IMDb.
