Shutting down the gossip! Erika Jayne has Kyle Richards back as she and her husband, Mauricio Umansky, navigate the hardest year of their marriage.
“I’m going to let Kyle really explain, but they’re not splitting,” Erika said in an interview with Billboard published Friday.
“They have had a very hard time. They’ve acknowledged that,” she continued. “They’ve acknowledged that, I remember when I was going through my divorce/disaster scandal, there were a lot of people speaking that really didn’t know what I was going through.”
“I just know that it’s been very hard, and you’ll get to see that,” the Pretty Mess singer added. “She’ll be able to explain herself, and that’s where I’d like to leave that.”
According to sources, Kyle and Mauricio had “been separated for a while now.”
However, the two “are still living under the same roof. They remain amicable as they figure out what’s next for them and their family.”
Kyle and Mauricio both denied being separated in a joint statement on social media.
“In regards to the news that came out about us today… Any claims regarding divorcing are untrue,” the joint statement read. “However, yes, we have had a rough year. The most challenging one of our marriage. But we both love and respect each other tremendously.”
Filming for season 13 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills officially wrapped in May, but Bravo took a page out of Vanderpump Rules and got the cameras back up and running amid reports of Kyle and Mauricio’s marriage issues.
“Um, what am I gonna say to this?” the Watch What Happens Live host said, according to PEOPLE. “I wanna say that this will be included next season of Beverly Hills in some way, shape, or form; that’s all I’ll say.”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is reportedly returning to Bravo for season 13 in late 2023. Some reports suggest season 13 will premiere on November 1.
