Lisa Rinna is crowning Mauricio Umansky “the MVP of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.” The mom of two took to Instagram to show some appreciation for Kyle Richards’ husband and, particularly, his hilarious role on the April 29 episode of the show’s current season.
As viewers know, the recent episode involved a brutally awkward dinner party at Kyle’s house, which went off the rails pretty quickly (cue Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave crying after being called "boring" by Sutton Stracke) and then turned downright bizarre when Denise Richards' husband, Aaron Phypers, attempted to explain his work in frequency medicine. As he went into detail about his occupation, everyone at the table looked utterly confused — that is, everyone except for Mauricio, who just kept on smiling and later asked for Denise’s leftover salmon.
“MVP of #RHOBH @kylerichards18 @mumansky18,” Lisa wrote alongside a photo still of Mauricio at the table, also adding the hashtag, “#nationaltreasure.” Sounds like a pretty apt description to us!
Check out Lisa’s tribute to Mauricio below, and see a clip from the uncomfortable dinner party above.
