Kyle Richards Opens Up on Her and Mauricio Umansky "Growing in Different Directions"
The RHOBH cast member got candid about her and Mauricio's marital issues in a conversation with Dorit Kemsley.
Kyle Richards and Dorit Kemsley had a candid conversation about their respective marriages on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 13, Episode 4, which aired on Nov. 15. Kyle, more specifically, provided new insight into her and Mauricio Umansky's relationship issues while reflecting on the recent changes she's made in her life, such as quitting drinking, upping her exercise, and changing her diet.
Kyle Richards' Sobriety and Lifestyle Changes
Dorit brought up Kyle's lifestyle changes and asked if they were prompted by the drama between her and Kathy Hilton. As she put it, "Do you think that like this whole not drinking and distancing yourself for a minute was just trying to protect yourself [and] get control because, obviously, the trauma of falling out with your sister?"
Kyle's response? "Maybe. I mean, I'm not a psychologist, but I don't know ... I feel like I need to be really clear right now."
Dorit went on to express that she "miss[es]" the "silly things" they'd typically do on a girls' trip like the one they were on in Las Vegas, but Kyle pointed out that the changes she's made have been a long time coming.
"And I don't even feel like I need to do that anymore," Kyle explained. "This is who I am ... just take it or leave it."
Kyle Richards and Mauricio Umansky's Marital Issues
Later, Kyle and Dorit's conversation turned to Kyle's marriage and the "difficult" year she and Mauricio have had. "I think a lot of it has to do with — us having a harder year — is, I expected more from him for what I was going through," she shared.
What's more, Mauricio "does a lot of business events where I know I'm supposed to go and, you know, be the wife and be supportive," Kyle continued. "And sometimes it's like, I don't want to go to these parties."
She elaborated in a confessional interview, explaining, "Mo is in sales, and a big part of that is putting yourself out there and being social. And I'm in a place in my life where I don't want to do that. I mean, I would much rather be home reading than going to an event — especially [now] that I don't drink anymore."
On that note, Dorit asked, "But if this is the direction that you want to go, and he's that, do you ever worry about the future? How do you sustain a marriage?"
From there, Kyle got emotional, but simply told Dorit, "I would be happy to be full-time, like, in the mountains, you know, doing the things I like to do."
However, in a confessional, Kyle was more candid. "I think what the way my relationship is right now, I'm not happy," she admitted. "I'm sort of now working on myself inside, and I feel like he's very focused on his work. So, I feel like in that aspect, we're kind of like, you know, growing in different directions. I don't want to wake up, you know, a few years down the road and be like, 'Who are you? What are we supposed to talk about now?'"
