Are Kyle Richards and Mauricio Umansky Splitting Up? Rumors and Reports Swirl Around Real Housewives Couple

There are always rumors swirling around regarding cast members on The Real Housewives shows. These rumors typically include the following:

  • Fights among cast members
  • Pregnancies
  • Issues surrounding cast members’ children
  • Firings and demotions in between each season of the show
  • New Relationships that cast members have
  • Relationship problems cast members have, including breakups and divorces

While Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards has always seemed to have a strong marriage with husband Mauricio Umansky, there have now been reports swirling around about them suggesting that the pair may be splitting.

What do we mean?

Before delving into the rumors around Richards and Umansky, let’s first revisit the couples on their show that ended up breaking up.

These have included:

  • Adrienne Maloof and Paul Nassif
  • Erika Jayne and Tom Girardi
  • Yolanda Hadid and David Foster
  • Camille and Kelsey Grammer
  • Taylor and Russel Armstrong
  • Carlton and David Gebbia

As you can see based on the list above, divorces between cast members and their spouses on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are not uncommon.

So what is being said about Richards and Umansky?

Before getting into the latest reports where fans suggest the pair may have split, it should be noted that Umansky took to his Instagram to honor his wife on her birthday only FIVE WEEKS AGO. Specifically, he wrote the following tribute to her:

“Happy Birthday to my Queen, the love of my life. You bring life, love, and happiness to all our lives and to everyone around you. Thank you for all our years and all our future years.”

“You get better and better,” Umansky added. “I Love you ❤️ I couldn’t do it without you. XOXO.”

Based on these words, it certainly would seem there is nothing but love between the long-married couple.

So why are people thinking something is wrong?

According to a new article from celebrity news site The Sun, they obtained photos of Richards grabbing food in California. While they noted certain details surrounding her- such as that she was “wearing workout gear” (which should be of no surprise to anyone who has been following Richards on social media/in the news as she recently has lost weight, been working out a lot, and has become sober) it was another detail they noted that specifically has fans talking and questioning what is going on with her and Umansky.

Specifically, in the photos they obtained, The Sun noted that “Kyle held her phone and a bag of food in her hands, which were slightly out in front of her.”

They went on to state that “The positioning of her hands made it clear that she was not wearing her wedding ring, fueling rumors that she and her husband Mauricio were done.”

While there wasn’t much else to the story at this time, it should be noted that there could be tons of reasons that someone may not be wearing their wedding ring- especially if they were working out or just took it off to shower and forgot to put it back on.

There have been rumors regarding Richards and Umansky in the past, though, as recently as last October. At that point, Richards actually addressed the rumors regarding them.

What did she say?

Back in October of last year, Richards spoke to US Magazine and told them the following regarding rumors that she and Umansky had split:

“It used to get me so upset when lies were out there about me. I’m gonna get myself so worked up and so emotional. And now, I really just like — oh, my God. I can’t believe it. But this [new] one threw us for a loop. This last one, because we didn’t know [about it], I don’t have a Google alert or anything either.”

She continued discussing this, stating that “We posted a picture in Aspen together and somebody wrote in the comments, ‘I’m so glad to see all the rumors aren’t true.’ And [Mauricio] looked at me and he said, ‘What are they talking [about in] this comment?’ And I was like, ‘I don’t know. Let’s Google.’ We were like, ‘What?’ And then, like, a week later, people were texting me [and saying], ‘I hope everything’s OK. I was like, ‘Oh, my God.’”

As US Magazine explained in their article, there had been a rumor that a housewife on the West Coast had split with their husband, and people thought it was Richards, but she insisted it was NOT HER.

So where does this leave things?

As of now, neither Richards nor Umansky have commented on the most recent reports that fans think they may have split due to the pictures The Sun obtained. Based on the fact that there have been rumors surrounding the couple in the past and each time they have turned out to be baseless, we think it’s safe to assume that their marriage is intact and as good as it’s always been.
