RHOBH's Kyle Richards Talks Drama With Mauricio and His Mom, Farrah Split Rumors, & If She'll Reconcile With LVP, Plus She Confirms She's Getting a New Tattoo

Kyle Richards weighed in on a potential reconciliation with Lisa Vanderpump while appearing on Teddi Mellencamp and Tamra Judge‘s podcast over the weekend at BravoCon.

As she also looked back on the tense moment she experienced with her estranged husband Mauricio Umansky, 53, and his mom, Dr. Estella Sneider, on a recent episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, commented on the potential end of daughter Farrah Aldjufrie‘s engagement to Alex Manos, and revealed she’s getting a new tattoo, Kyle, 54, opened up about her and Mauricio’s split.

“There’s certain things I’ll never be ready to say because it’s private. I’m not here to make anybody look bad or throw people under the bus,” Kyle explained on the November 4 episode of Two Ts in a Pod. “We’re a family no matter what. And I love Mo. I always will… We are a family. A very strong tight family. Whether we’re together or not, we’re always going to have that and I want to make sure we always do.”

“With that said, obviously there’s things that I was holding in that were hurting me and upsetting me,” she continued. “You know I’m not the best at my poker face. I think people know that about me. Some people pick up on that, other people are saying you’re just bitter and angry…”

In July, it was reported that Kyle and Mauricio had separated after 27 years of marriage. Months later, after denying rumors of divorce, the couple confirmed the report was true.

While Kyle has been linked to Morgan Wade, 28, and Mauricio has been linked to his Dancing With the Stars partner Emma Slater, 34, both parties have denied the alleged romances.

As RHOBH fans will recall, Kyle first faced rumors of a romance with Morgan earlier this year and fueled those reports by starring in a racy music video with Morgan months later — and getting matching tattoos with the country singer.

Kyle ultimately noted that she has matching tattoos with a lot of her friends, including Teddi, and on the podcast, she revealed she’ll soon have one more.

“I’m supposed to be getting one next week with my daughter Farrah,” she shared.

Also speaking of Farrah, Kyle said that she doesn’t feel comfortable addressing rumors that her engagement has been called off.

“I don’t know,” she replied when asked. “I don’t like to answer for other people… I’ll let her speak for herself.”

Reflecting on an episode of RHOBH earlier this month, which saw Kyle telling Estella about Mauricio’s tattoo (an art form that is often frowned upon in the Jewish community), Kyle attempted to explain why Mauricio was so upset.

“I think the mood was tense cause of the whole situation that came up on camera about the tabloids and this and that,” Kyle shared. “It wasn’t about being Jewish. He wouldn’t have done it (gotten a tattoo) if it was because of that… Then I was like well, they’re shooting their show. Is it something he wants to share on his show Buying Beverly Hills? I didn’t really know. I just never saw him react like that… I’m not really sure [why he reacted like that] but tensions were high.”

In addition to the negativity surrounding Mauricio’s tattoo, Kyle said he wasn’t happy that Estella mentioned the split rumors as cameras rolled.

“Mo was more mad than I was,” she admitted. “He was not happy… Mo was not in a good mood. He did not like that.”

As for her potential reconciliation with Lisa, 63, who said she had “empathy” for her amid her split from Mauricio, Kyle confirmed she’s open to making amends.

“You know how I am Teddi. I’m not like you… Teddi does hold a grudge. If she were to come up and say something nice and give me a hug or something, I’m the type that would just be like forgotten,” Kyle revealed, before noting that “it won’t happen” because “[Lisa]’s not that type.”

Also on the podcast, Teddi, 42, recalled how Kyle clapped back at Reza Farahan, 50, by reminding him his show, Shahs of Sunset, was canceled after he called her “overrated.”

“It just caught me in the moment and I said something rude back or something. Just stupid. I don’t like to engage in that stuff. But sometimes I have my moment, what can I say?” Kyle asked.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 13 airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on Bravo.
