Taylor Armstrong Says She Wants Kyle Richards to Be ‘Happy’ After Split from Mauricio Umansky

PEOPLE reported in early July that Richards, 54, and Umansky, 53, were separating.

“Kyle and Mauricio have been separated for some time, but they still live under the same roof,” said a source close to the couple. “They have remained amicable as they figure out what’s next for them and their family.”

The now exes met in 1994. At that time, Richards split from her first husband, Guraish Aldjufrie, with whom she had a daughter, Farrah Brittany (née Aldjufrie).

Richards and Umansky later married in 1996. They now have daughters Alexia, 27, Sophia, 23, and Portia, 15.
