We told you yesterday that Kyle Richards and Mauricio Umansky were at the Equality Council’s Impact Awards honoring the LGBT Foundation, at the Beverly Wilshire hotel, and even though it was days later, Kyle was still decompressing from the RHOBH season 7 reunion!
“I’m coming here to show my support. Some of my friends in same sex marriages are the best couples and most beautiful families that I’ve ever met in my life,” Kyle told Bravo of the event. Adding, “Our children were raised seeing that you know it’s not new to them. We’ve come so far and I’m so worried that we’re going to go backwards, so I’m here to lend my support and show them some love. We are all free to love who we love.”
Kyle previously called the reunion “bizarre,” and she elaborated a bit more to Bravo on the “exhausting” affair! “It’s not fun at all! I mean the next day, I just can’t even explain. I feel like I can’t move. I have to like clear my schedules. You feel so bad and drained, physically and emotionally,” Kyle explained.
It turns out she did move the next day, and went on a shopping spree with Lisa Vanderpump; clearly they left the reunion on good terms, which I personally am happy to hear!
“I did take myself shopping the next day. Lisa Vanderpump called me up and said, ‘You know what you? We deserve something!’”
Mauricio quickly interjected, “She takes care of herself. Exactly.”
Kyle was hesitant to spill the details on post season 7 present, but once pressed a bit more she spilled the deats! “I don’t really like to talk about buying stuff. Nothing like specific. Well, you know, it was a gift for myself for the season. I bought myself an Hermes bag, a Birkin bag,” she disclosed.
She blames Lisa for the shopping trip in general, but it turns out LVP had her eyes on a different prize! “Lisa Vanderpump called me in the morning and was like, ‘Let’s go buy ourselves some jewelry!’ and I said, ‘Okay, I’ll meet you there.’ But then I called and was like, ‘Okay I changed my mind, I want a Birkin, I’ll see you later,’” she joked.
Mauricio always looks good, but it turns out he is NOT a fan of shopping; in fact, he really doesn’t go very often. “Oh God, I don’t shop. I’m the worst shopper in the world. I shop twice a year. I go in, I buy everything and then I’m done,” he confirmed.
Kyle also got candid on some of her other guilty pleasures, and it turns out she loves Bravo (almost) as much as we do!
“I put on Bravo a lot and so you know I’ll see Vanderpump Rules, and the other Housewives, or NeNe [Leakes] and the other ones. It’s fun for me as a Housewife seeing these other franchises and what they’re going through,” she confessed.
Continuing, “I used to not watch any television, but now that I’m producing I make it a point to like really watch all the shows. See what’s going on with these other reality shows. You know they’re fighting and you’re like, ‘Ah, you know misery loves company,’” Kyle wrapped.
I am SO jealous of Kyle’s Birkin, I can’t imagine what it’s like to just go casually buy one on a random afternoon; it sounds like Lisa Vanderpump was a great form of moral support. So far Kyle has been great this season, so that bag is well deserved!
