Fans of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills already know that Kyle Richards' marriage to Mauricio Umansky is her second. Before her happily ever after with real estate mogul, she was previously married to Guraish Aldjufrie. The twosome tied the knot when she was just 18, and while the marriage was short lived, together they had Kyle's eldest daughter, Farrah.
But just because Kyle and Guraish parted ways in 1992 doesn't mean that they don't remain close. Farrah spoke to The Daily Dish about her dad and the role he plays in her life today.
"They were super, super young when they got married. They always stayed extremely close, extremely good friends," she said. Even Mauricio is a fan. "He's very, very close with my mom and Mauricio, like they're great, great, great friends. I always say I have two dads; they both raised me," Farrah explained. "They both get along amazingly. They've done [real estate] deals together. My dad refers clients to Mauricio all the time. We all get together, he comes to our house for Christmas, Thanksgiving, it's all good. It funny 'cause I'm an only child at one house [with my dad] and then I have this huge family at this other house [with my mom and three younger sisters], so it's kind of the best of both worlds. There's no real separation or divide."
Guraish currently lives in Bali, where Farrah explains his focus is on land development and commercial real estate. And despite the distance between Indonesia and L.A., Guraish and his only child have a really close bond. "We're extremely close....He's actually in L.A. right now visiting me," Farrah said. "He comes and he stays for like a month or two at a time two or three times a year. We just have a lunch or dinner three times or four times a week and hang out as much as we can while he's here."
Farrah admits that the interest in her dad is "the funniest thing" because of his shy demeanor and life out of the spotlight. "My dad is the most shy, sweetest, nicest, cutest person in the world," she said. "And he actually told me the other day that his friend emailed him and was like, 'Is that girl on Housewives really your ex-wife?' And he thought he was hilarious."
