Kyle Richards hoped to find support from her fellow Beverly Hills housewives when magazines splashed headlines accusing her husband, famed realtor Mauricio Umansky, of adultery. But, she’s claimed, no one reached out to her to offer a shoulder to cry on!
During this season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Richards has continued to shoot down the infidelity rumors and recently opened up about the lack of support she received from the 90210 gals.
“Once the lies were printed I didn’t hear from any of the girls,” she wrote on her Bravo blog. “The first time was when Lisa [Vanderpump] mentioned it at my house when Mauricio and Portia were in the kitchen. The second time was at Carlton [Gebbia]‘s.”
Frustrated, 44-year-old Richards tried to take action against the rumors but eventually pulled back.
“When the tabloids first came out Mauricio and I hired a lawyer to sue. We soon learned that it was not that simple. We were also advised to not give it any attention. That is what the magazines want.
“It was extremely frustrating because we WANTED to come out and say something!”
Richards even went on to blame her co-stars for fueling the lies about her family.
“After the story came out, Lisa went on a red carpet and made a comment saying she didn’t believe any of the lies… and they were BS. If that comment had stood on it’s own, I would have been so grateful and happy to have that kind of support.
“Unfortunately, it came only AFTER the women had brought it up and the story had grown.
“It also wasn’t lost on me that nobody bothered to say that BEFORE their character had been attacked and that they had in fact contributed to the story growing.”
During Monday’s episode of RHOBH, the couple put on a united front.
“When anyone tries to come between us, it actually makes us stronger,” Kyle said. “We know what we have.”
Her husband stood by her, calling out the fellow housewives for being mean girls.
“Let me tell you something. Any of these f**king girls can do a lie detector test with me tomorrow and no problem,” Mauricio said, adding that the lies splashed across the tabloids have made him “loose all faith in humanity.”
“I realized that as long as you’re in the spotlight, people are going to say bad things about you,” Kyle said in her confessional. “We choose to surround ourselves with people who know us inside and out. We’re not supposed to care, but we do. And it hurts.”
