Kyle Richards says she and Mauricio Umansky are going to “figure it out.”

As she and Mauricio, 53, approach one year of separation, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, 55, is dishing on the “light at the end of the tunnel” as she looks forward to Wednesday’s conclusion of the season 13 reunion, and details about season 14 and the alleged return of Kathy Hilton, 64, are being shared.

“I would like to believe there is light at the end of the tunnel,” Kyle told Entertainment Tonight at the 32nd Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party on Sunday. “Each day gets easier in one way and a little sadder in other way.”

“It’s a challenging time right now, but we’re very amicable,” she continued. “We love each other and care about each other. We love our family. I feel like we’re very fortunate that we’re handling it the way that we are. I don’t know if many people can do that. We’ll figure it out.”

Since their separation last summer, Kyle and Mauricio have continued to live together at their Encino home and maintained a united front for their kids, including Alexia Umansky, 27, Sophia Umansky, 24, Portia Umansky, 16, and Kyle’s oldest, Farrah Aldjufrie, 35.

After opening up about the hardships she faced with Mauricio amid filming on season 13, Kyle was faced with a lengthy discussion about their marital woes on the third installment of the reunion.

“Part 3, I think, is the hardest one for me,” Kyle shared. “I knew that day the last part was gonna be the most difficult part, so I was just praying and meditating and waiting for that to end. It ended up in a very strange, weird, kind of odd way, but… I’m still standing so that’s a good thing.”

Following her tough season, Kyle is looking forward to exhaling after the reunion wraps.

“I can finally exhale after next week,” she said. “Hopefully just a peace of mind is what follows after. I really, really need this season to be done. It’s the never-ending season and I would just like a little peace and reprieve, maybe not so many eyeballs on me for a little bit while I figure some things out.”

Despite the challenges she faced, Kyle said there was a major takeaway from the drama.

“[I] learned this last couple years now that I’m a lot stronger than I realize, so at least I feel good about that,” she stated.

In other RHOBH news, season 14 is expected to begin filming next month.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 14 is going into production in April,” the Real Housewives Zone on Instagram announced to their followers on March 11. “None of the cast have been confirmed to return as yet. Kathy Hilton is rumored to [be] making a return as a friend after her appearance at the season 13 reunion.”

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 13 reunion, part three, airs Wednesday, March 13, at 8/7c on Bravo.
