Did Kyle Richards or Mauricio Umansky initiate their split?

WWHL host Andy Cohen prefaced the conversation on Kyle and Mauricio's split with an acknowledgment of how "surreal" it was to even be discussing the end of the former couple's 27-year marriage. He then followed this up by asking who was "the driving force" behind their separation.

"It originated from me, I would say," Kyle replied. "Yeah. It did."

Asked how her family — including her four daughters, Farrah Brittany (who Kyle shares with ex-husband Guraish Aldjufrie), AlexiaSophia, and Portia (who she shares with Mauricio) — is dealing with the breakup as well as "the rumors and speculation" surrounding it, Kyle responded, "When the news first came out, it was really, really devastating for the whole family. I mean, our phones were blowing up, my kids were just crying and wouldn't leave the house, and it was really, really difficult."

"But now, they're much better," Kyle continued, "and they're really strong and they're they're just so together and so smart and they've been my best, best, best friends, and I could not be more proud of them. They're just amazing human beings, and thank God I have them through this."

As Kyle revealed on WWHL, the two are still living together under the same roof — just in different bedrooms. "I let him stay in the primary bedroom 'cause it's very, like, masculine," she explained. "And the upstairs floor is, like, the glam area and there's a bed."
