Kyle Richards and Mauricio Umansky gave a really interesting interview on their relationship and filming RHOBH and RHUGT to ET recently. She and Mauricio discussed keeping their marriage intact while filming a reality show. Kyle also made a new friend on RHUGT that I find kind of shocking.
“We have zero interest in removing–,” Mauricio starts when asked about a renewal, a Freudian slip or sorts, continuing with a laugh, “Removing? In renewing our vows. … We’ve actually talked about it a couple of times, but we don’t want to mess with a good thing. We’ve been super lucky, and why change the energy that we have around us? It’s been really good energy.”
Mauricio also will appear on an upcoming episode of RHUGT where Kyle ended up having to do the walk of shame. Hey, there is no shame when your husband is Mauricio Umansky. It’s more like a badge of honor!
” Mauricio makes a guest appearance on a future episode, as he was in town for business (his real estate firm, The Agency, helped secure the villa where the women filmed their island escapade). “I definitely walked into some chaos,” Mauricio teases. “They invited me to a dinner, and they had just come off of some very chaotic moments that were shared with me. Thank God I didn’t have to witness them at my dinner. My dinner was actually relatively calm and cool and easy.”
But the strangest part of this article for me is that Kyle seems to genuinely like Ramona Singer! Check this out!
“I actually admire Ramona,” Kyle says after living through the trip. “Yes, she has her moments, but I also have seen a lot softer side of Ramona, and a very sweet side of Ramona. She opened up a lot about some things towards the end of the trip, which explained a lot to me about Ramona, and how she kind of operates and why she does the things she does.”
“You have to wait and see, but I did get to spend a lot of time with her,” she continues. “She is a lot of fun, I will say. Yes, she offends people sometimes. I don’t know if she’s just very unfiltered and says things that are not appropriate, but she also makes me laugh — and I forgive when people make me laugh. I can forgive anything if you make me laugh. And she was really making me laugh. And we were always like the ones that were ready to go and have fun all the time.”
Kyle also talked about the grueling schedule filming RHUGT. There was never a second of downtime.
“I would be asleep in bed — I was on L.A. time — so all of a sudden a light would go on above my bed at 7:00 a.m., which is 4:00 a.m. L.A. time — and as soon as that light would go on, I would be like [mimes an abrupt wake-up], I’d hear. ‘Kyle, are you ready to have a mic put on?’ And I was like, are they kidding me? I haven’t even washed my face or brushed my teeth. What is this?”
Kyle feels like the RHOBH are much closer than other franchises.
“I love the women I work with, contrary to popular belief,” she says. “I know we argue, but I really love all these women. And you know, some of us obviously are closer than others, but we have an incredible cast. And what I learned in doing the Ultimate Girls Trip is that not all the franchises are like that. They all feel like they have to watch their backs. They don’t trust anybody. Our production doesn’t work like that. I love our team, our cast, our crew.”
Kyle says we will have to wait and see if her sister Kathy returns to the show. She has been ensconced in Paris’s wedding and now she is on the honeymoon with the newlyweds! Paris and her husband are having some sort of WORLD TOUR of a honeymoon and several family members and friend are with them at least for the first part.
Again, the entire ET interview is quite interesting.
