After twenty years of marriage, Kyle Richards and Mauricio Umansky know just how to keep the spark in their relationship alive. And, for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills couple, sometimes date night isn't just something that happens at, well, night. These two are always making time for each other.
"I think our biggest bonding time, which is so strange, is when we first wake up in the morning," she told Bravo After Hours. "Because I like to have a little quiet time before I wake the kids up and get them off to school. So that's when I'll have my coffee and turn the fireplace on and he'll come down like 15 minutes later and then we sit and talk... and it's just our alone time before all the chaos starts."
When they do talk, there are topics that Kyle likes to make sure they include — and don't include — in the conversation. "Well I try to make a point when my husband and I have date night to not just talk about our kids because it's really easy to do that. We're obsessed with them," she said. "Sometimes even talking business is a connection 'cause I know that my husband likes that, and I know that he likes that I know about that. Also sharing my adventures with him that I know he's very proud about, so even that can be a weird romantic thing. I know that that sounds strange, but when we're talking like that and we're connecting on that level, it's something that we didn't have before and it's fun for me."
And you can bet that Mauricio loves getting away from everything to be alone with his wife. He shared that one of his favorite things to do is head out to their desert house and hang. And, as long as there's "solitude" he's happy. "On my God, a quiet easy night with nobody around us," he said. We like to do as little as possible... Well the good news is that the kids are all growing up now. It's starting to become more of the question of, 'How do we get them with us?' It's starting to change. Now we only have Portia." -Additional reporting by Sasha Flamm
