Kyle Richards is known for her careful choice of words, which is why it came as a surprise when she used the term “divorce” to describe the current situation between her and Mauricio Umansky. While speaking to TooFab and other reporters at BravoCon on a Saturday, Kyle opened up about the challenges she faced in 2023.
She mentioned that the past year had brought significant changes to her life, including the loss of her best friend to suicide, as well as the process of her divorce. These experiences have undoubtedly made her stronger but have also had a profound impact on her as a person, she noted, adding that she currently feels good.
Previously, Kyle and Mauricio had consistently referred to their situation as a separation. However, this was the first time Kyle publicly referred to their 27-year marriage as heading towards divorce.
When asked about the possibility of reconciliation, she skillfully evaded the question, explaining that she takes things one day at a time and highlighting the pride she feels in the way they are navigating through this challenging period. Notably, they are still living under the same roof.
In recent reports, Mauricio has developed a close bond with his “DWTS” dance partner, Emma Slater, and even after their exit from the show, they were spotted together on a Saturday night, entering an L.A. nightclub arm in arm. Meanwhile, Kyle has also been forming a strong connection with country star Morgan Wade for several months. Although they have not publicly defined the nature of their relationship, they have described themselves as close friends and collaborators on a documentary project.
