“First of all,” the Halloween actress begins. “I’ve never used Umansky professionally. I only used it with my girls’ schools.”

“I went to my Instagram, and I was changing things – I had changed my agent.”

In case you missed it, Kyle Richards and Mauricio Umansky announced their separation on July 4, 2023 via a joint statement on Instagram.

Since then, Richards revealed that both parties are “free to do whatever” during this time of transition.

As of now, Richards and Umansky are still legally married. However, Umansky recently left their family home while Richards was on vacation.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star opened up to Jackie Schimmel on the Bitch Bible podcast that Umansky’s move to West Hollywood made their separation “very real all of a sudden.”

“I had been away, and he did this while I was out of town, which is the smart thing to do. I had said I didn’t want to be there to see that. So, it was just strange. And it’s like wow, it’s going to be like this sometimes.”

Despite no longer living in the same household, Richards says fans will likely still see Umansky next season “because, you know, he is obviously family.”

Season 14 is the first time all main cast members are either separated or single.

Kyle was coy during the Amazon Live as to what fans can expect to see on season 14, but she did tease a conversation she plans to have with Dorit Kemsley on her lack of support towards her marital woes.

Do you think Kyle Richards and Mauricio Umansky will end up reconciling, or is the Umansky chapter officially done a la Kyle’s Instagram?
