Mauricio Umansky denied that he and his wife, Kyle Richards are “separated,” and he claimed they’re “dealing with” their “own things” as the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star showed up to his Dancing with the Stars performance seemingly without a ring.
Fans have speculated about the couple’s relationship status amid reports of their separation. It has been rumored that Kyle is romantically involved with country singer Morgan Wade – though both parties have stated they’re only friends.
On the Red Mic podcast, Mauricio denied certain aspects of their marital woes.
“We were dealing with our own things, kind of, super quietly and internally, just our own issues,” said the 53-year-old, via Us Weekly. “I mean, certainly, we’re not separated. We’re not divorced at this point. We are not any of that stuff.”
He went on to say, “We’re still dealing with our marriage. You know, we’ve been married for 27 years now together and it’s been an amazing 27 years.”
Mauricio then modified his statement, claiming it’s been an “amazing 26 years [and a] difficult one year.” The star continued, “You know, Kyle and I are blessed, where we actually had 26 years that we did not have a bad year and I know most marriages have bad months, bad weeks [and] bad years.”
Recently, the real estate broker addressed his family’s upcoming support for his Dancing with the Stars gig.
“Everybody was super supportive. They are all going to be there cheering me on. I can’t wait,” he said in a previous interview with Us Weekly. “They’ve already put it in their calendar. Everybody’s ready [and] everybody’s already adjusted their calendars, particularly Kyle ‘cause she’s so busy. The rest of the girls are all in L.A. and just waiting.”
Though Kyle indeed supported her husband from the audience on DWTS, fan account @blndhairblckhrt shared photos of the star – who seemingly wasn’t wearing a ring during the show.
