Kyle Richards & Mauricio Sold Their “Dream” Property in Mexico for a Shocking Reason

The RHOBH cast member revealed why she and her husband, Mauricio Umansky, sold their beachfront property before building the vacation home they had planned for.

On the June 15 episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the cast members continued their vacation in a place that’s very familiar to Kyle Richards. As Dorit Kemsley put it, “Kyle’s been to Punta Mita, what, 100 times?” That may not be an exaggeration. Kyle explained that she and Mauricio Umansky are there “so often” that they almost chose the location (where Mauricio’s real estate brokerage, The Agency, has offices) to build a vacation home. However, the couple didn’t end up doing so for a surprising reason.

“We wanted this property here. We bought it, we were going to build on the beach,” Kyle shared during the episode. “My husband’s dream was to build a home, [but] my friend lived right near us [and] they had an alligator in their pool. We got offered a lot of money over what we paid for this piece of beachfront property, so I was like, 'Take it, take it, take it!’ because of the alligator.”

While Kyle may not be building a house in Mexico at the moment, she’s currently putting plenty of work into her family’s primary home in Encino. After upgrading the property’s backyard (check it out in the video above), Kyle told at NBCUniversal’s upfront presentation last month she is now “changing kind of everything” about the house.

“I think it really is our forever home,” she added. “Even if I move one day to, like, Aspen, Colorado, I’ll keep that home for my kids or something.”
