In “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” Season 12 Episode 16, the stars of the show traveled to Aspen, Colorado. During the trip, the cast spent time with Kyle Richards and her husband Mauricio Umansky at their home.
On a September 2022 episode of her podcast “Two Ts In A Pod,” co-hosted by RHOBH alum Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave, “Real Housewives of Orange County” star Tamra Judge commented on Umansky’s decision to attend a Housewives -trip.
“My question is why is Mauricio there? Why is he there? I just can not. He also did that on ‘Ultimate Girls Trip’. I’m sorry, I love Kyle. I love him. But why is he there?” the Bravo personality asked.
She then shared that her husband, Eddie Judge, would be unhappy if she traveled with Bravo stars.
“My husband would rather stick nails in his eyes than sit at a Housewives house or go on a trip. Is there a legitimate reason he’s there?” asked judge.
Arroyave noted that one of the offices of Umansky’s real estate company, The Agency, is located in Aspen. She clarified that she did not believe that was the reason he decided to travel.
“There’s an agency there, right next to one of the restaurants we always go to when we’re in Aspen. But I’m not going to say that’s why he was in that particular setting,” Arroyave said.
Judge agreed that she believed Umansky wanted to ski. She also shared that she thinks fans would be unhappy if other Bravo stars’ husbands were present on cast tours.
“If it was another man, another man, oh my god, they would be torn apart,” Judge claimed.
While filming a September 2022 episode of “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen” with Richards, actress Jenny McCarthy shared her thoughts on Umansky’s presence in Aspen.
“You know what I have to say about crashing him is that sometimes girls travel, we need a good husband, if we can always nominate as a good husband to come with, it’s for the better.” But they have to be fun, they can’t go because of jealousy, they just have to have a good time,” McCarthy said.
Richards pointed out that Umansky cooked for her co-stars and covered their air travel expenses.
“In defense, he paid for the plane and it was good skiing conditions,” said the mother of four.
During the WWHL interview, Richards spoke about the RHOBH Season 12 reunion special, which was filmed on September 9. She hinted that she will have a “difficult” conversation with her sister, Kathy Hilton.
“It’s going to be difficult with my sister. We’ve been through some tough times on the show and I’ve had some issues with Erika [Jayne] and [Lisa] Rinna towards the end. I had to apologize to Garcelle [Beauvais] which I already did, so I think we’re okay,” Richards said.
New episodes of RHOBH will premiere on Bravo on Wednesday.
