Kyle Richards of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
is denying there is any merit to the rumors that her husband, Mauricio Umansky, cheated on her earlier this year. She says that the rumors were all "part of the snowball out-of-control thing."
Kyle told People
that the rumors completely blindsided her and her husband of 17 years, saying, "My husband and I both were [worked up about it]. We were literally like, 'What?'"
Kyle appeared with her husband at the season 4 premiere party, where she had nothing but glowing things to say about him.
"I don't think anything is perfect in life, but [what we have] is perfect for us. I could not love my husband more. I mean, I really love him with all my heart and soul, and he loves me. He's an amazing husband, he's an amazing father, he's an amazing human being."
She also seemed to indicate some regrets about being on the show, at least when it comes to how it has affected her marriage.
"He did not deserve to be sucked into this, and he didn't sign up for this spotlight. I did."
As for the upcoming season, Kyle infers that her and the newest castmates had their ups and downs.
"Some are really cool and some not as much," she said of the new housewives. "We're very different. I think some were open-minded and nice and some were very closed-minded and very negative energy to me."
Kyle admits that things were rocky for her and her former BFF, Lisa Vanderpump, over the last two seasons, but they have addressed their issues and are back on track with their friendship. And as for her relationship with frenemy Brandi Glanville, she says things are on the mend there as well.
"We're in a good place. People are like, 'Ooh, they're best friends.' We're in a much better place than we were, obviously, but it can't get any worse than it was."
And finally, Kyle said that her former co-star Taylor Armstrong, who will not be included as a full-time cast member in season 4, is very happy to be moving on with her life.
"I'm very happy for her," Kyle said of Taylor, who is now engaged to her former attorney, John Bluher. "He's a really nice guy. He really cares about [Taylor's daughter] Kennedy. They seem very happy and she seems at ease."Don't miss the premiere of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills on Bravo on November 4.
