This Is How Kyle Richards and Mauricio Umansky Turned the White Party into *the* Event in Beverly Hills

Kyle hopes that her party is big enough so that people who don't want to be near each other don't have to.

It's a bash no one wants to miss if they are lucky enough to score an invite. And now the couple is revealing a bit more about the annual get-together, spilling some secrets about how it became such a must-have on everyone's social calendar. "I think the White Party kind of started out like everyone looks pretty in white, and I really like everything to look beautiful at a party," Kyle told Bravo After Hours. "And you do these parties where you'd be all dressed up and some people come in jeans and other people come dressed up. So I thought I'm gonna make it like everyone's in white. That way whether they're in white jeans or a beautiful white gown, everyone's gonna look good."

From there, the buzz spread fast throughout the 90210. Kyle added, "It just sort of stuck and everyone loved it and the next thing you know months in advance friends would be calling, 'When's the White Party 'cause I already found my outfit?'"

Mauricio said that he often helps his wife out when it comes to planning the bash. "I'm very involved with that. She's taken it over only because of the Housewives, but that whole White Party really started for my birthday and then we decided to kick it off [as a summer party]. My birthday's June 25, so we just figured every year it'll be the beginning of the summer and we'll kick it off with a birthday party that will be the White Party that will become more known as the White Party rather than my birthday party."
