One of the happiest Housewives marriage has to be between Kyle Richards and Mauricio Umansky. They met when Kyle was a young divorced mom, and married in 1996. They have three daughters of their own: Alexia, Sophia, and li'l Portia.
Mauricio explained the secret to their marital bliss to People at an event in Las Vegas.
“We’re the same, with or without cameras. We’re just super real and we know each other and we’re real.”
They had no qualms signing on to do the show because he says they have absolutely nothing to keep crammed in a lockbox.
"We don't have any secrets to hide," he said. "That's one thing we talked about, the skeletons in the closet, and we can handle our worst skeletons."
It seems that their worst skeleton is that they both love to work. Mauricio recently opened his own real estate business called ‘The Company,’ (who can forget that launch party when Paul launched into Brandi?) and Kyle has opened a clothing store named ‘Kyle by Alene Too.’
Mauricio definitely isn’t an old-fashioned guy. He totally supports and encourages Kyle’s work.
"She likes to work,” he explained. I was one to never hold her back from working, so I've always felt if the husband holds a woman back from working you get friction. It's unavoidable.”
Mauricio's not one to hold back in Part 2 of the #RHOBH, either. The Househusband joins the ladies on Monday at 8/7c. We guess a couple that reunions together stays together.
I can appreciate how you were a gentleman and apoligized to Brandi but you didn't really have a thing to apoligize for. Brandi played the "poor little girl victim" and tried to portray you as a "coward". Ridiculous. You calmly called her out. She's the one who CAN'T TAKE THE TRUTH. You and Kyle stay the course with your family and your business. Stay away from Brandi. She's toxic and is going to show her true colors to Yo and Lisa soon enough. I know she's going to be on the show next season but that's why I record the show. Fast forward through annoying Brandi.
Kyle and Mauricio, I hope you don't take to heart what all these people are saying about you. There is so much jealousy on these shows it's crazy. Yolanda is jealous that kyle is young, beautiful and has the most gorgeous hair, hers is a bit straw like...and probably always wanted a close knit family like you have. Brandi is jealous of you because you show you don't need to be an anorexic with fake lips to be truly happy. Lisa is just a spoiled brat that realizes she married this old man!! It was going to catch up to her at some point. Duh... I love Kim, and have sisters so I completely understand the dynamics you face. I can't believe I'm going to say this but I like Taylor this season. Ok, enough said, enjoy your life and keep loving it's going to drive them crazy!!!!
I think the two of you are wonderful! You were trying to help Brandi at the dinner you went to, but maybe it wasn't the best timing for her. Maybe you might have been a little too serious with her, but you were giving her some good advice, nip it, nip it in the bud...then maybe she wouldn't have had to dole out $10,000 to her lawyer! It was her own fault for opening her mouth in the first place.
After watching this season, you stating that the two of you are the same both on and off camera doesn't exactly raise my opinion of either of you.
They used to be my favorite, but this year, I see them in a different light. When Mauricio jumped all over Brandi at the dinner I could sense he had an agenda. The way he was going on and on how Brandi should apologize and making Adrienne sound like a saint, I figured it out then. The powerful dollar that Adreinne has and Brandi has none. He is no idiot. He knows who can make the most commission from and it sure isn't Brandi. He should have stayed out of it and I would have had much more respect for him.
Also I had no doubt about there being a difference off camera. Your essence is always on display and looks quite genuine. All the scenes match.
I love you guys! You both are a terrific couple. I 100% agree in how you treat people. Kyle is my favorite housewife. She's funny, honest, a good friend, wife and mother. I love her as a person. I wish I had a best friend like her.
Mauricio is a stand up guy, i don't even really understood what was going on, Brandy started it by going up to Paul and asking him "did you call me a b?" yes he did and you are!
“We’re the same, with or without cameras. We’re just super real and we know each other and we’re real.” Amazing!!!! I'm sure you do know each other. That doesn't say much for how you both have come across this past season. How real were you both being when you were pretending to have this grand friendship with Adrienne and Paul? You gushed at telling them how you had their back and how you layed into Brandi. I guess one part of your statement is true, you are bother the same.
I can't stand either one of them, Kyle was good season 1 but went down hill fast. For Mauricio when he did not stop the fight at HIS party made me sick. Be a man.
