Children of successful parents often manage to surpass their family’s expectations. Such is the case of Mauricio Umansky, a child of a real estate and TV star personality, who went on to become one of the biggest names in the real estate industry. Who is Mauricio Umansky, and who is his equally successful spouse?
Early life and Education
Mauricio Umansky was born on 25 June 1976, in Mexico City, Mexico. He and his sister, Sharon Umansky Benton, were raised by their parents, real estate agent Eduardo Umansky, and Estella Sneider, who is a famous Mexican TV personality, sex therapist, author, psychologist, and socialite, best known for her appearance in the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills”.
Sometime during Mauricio’s childhood, she and Eduardo divorced and Estella was given custody of their children. Through his parents, Mauricio is of Russian, Greek-Jewish, and British descent.
When he was just a few years old, he was diagnosed with neutropenia, a condition that happens when a person has an abnormally low concentration of a certain type of white blood cells, called neutrophils. People with this condition are much more prone to bacterial infections, and they might even develop deadly neutropenic sepsis. Because of this, Umansky had to spend years under various hospital treatments.
After matriculating from an undisclosed high school, Umansky enrolled at the University of Southern California, located in Los Angeles, but dropped out before graduating so that he could focus on launching his own business.
Umansky started his entrepreneurial career by founding his own clothing line, called “90265”, but sold it after just a few years, apparently at a huge profit. He then joined the real estate company part-owned by his brother-in-law, Rick Hilton, named “Hilton and Hyland”.
After learning useful tips and tricks about real estate, he launched his own real estate company, with the simple name “The Agency”, specializing in luxury properties in the Beverly Hills Area. He had a lot of success, and was soon doing business with many known Hollywood faces, such as Michael Jordan, Kim Kardashian, Kanye West and Sofia Vergara. He even won the prestigious Golden Palm Award for having the most innovative large company in Beverly Hills.
With his success rising, Umansky started appearing in various TV shows, such as “Fox Business” and “NBC’s Today Show”; he sometimes appears on his wife’s TV show, “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” too. His other reality TV show appearances include “Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles”, “E!’s Rich Kids of Beverly Hills” and ABC’s “Job or No Job”.
Marriage to Kyle Richards
Umansky met the actress Kyle Egan Richards at a private event, through their mutual friend. They started dating in 1994 and tied the knot two years later, on 20th January 1996. Just a few months later, on 19th June 1996, they welcomed their first daughter who they’ve named Alexia. Their second daughter was born on 18th January 2000, and their third daughter Portia sometime in 2008.
Richards is mostly known for her roles in movies such as “Halloween”, “The Weather in the Woods”, “Down to Earth” and “The Car”. She also has her own clothing line, and had a chain of boutiques under the name “Kyle by Alene Too” that closed in 2018. In 2011 she published her memoir – “Life Is Not a Reality Show: Keeping It Real with the Housewife Who Does It All”.
This isn’t Richards’ first marriage, as she was previously married to her high school love, Guraish Aldjufrie, and the two had a daughter together named Farrah Aldjufrie. They divorced in 1992, but still share a close friendship. Their daughter once even said: ‘He’s very close with my mom and Mauricio, like they’re great, great friends. I always say I have two dads; they both raised me.’
She also mentioned that Aldjufrie refers his clients to Umansky all the time, and that they all spend holidays together.
As of May 2020, the family resides in a big mansion in Bel Air, Los Angeles.
His spouse, step-daughter, and daughters have all been on the show “The Real Housewives” – the episode focused on their expensive birthday parties.
Umansky is a huge fan of golf and tennis, and also spends free time flying his helicopter.
On 27th December 2017, his house was robbed and burglars stole more than $1 million worth of jewelry, including $150,000 worth of watches. The thieves have never been caught.
He and his family love to go on lavish vacation – ne of their favorite places is Aspen, Colorado where they go skiing and snowboarding. They even have a private jet!
Umansky has a Hollywood doppelganger in the actor John Turturro, who is known for his appearances in “Quiz Show”, “The Big Lebowski” and “Barton Fink”. One of the first pictures that appear when you search Mauricio Umansky on Google is an image of Turturro.
In 2013 there were rumors that Umansky was cheating on his wife with a female escort and a transsexual prostitute. The gossips started when Toni Newman, a transsexual and an escort, claimed that one of the customers of her escort partner was Umansky. Umansky denied these claims, while Richards refused to comment. As of May 2020, there hasn’t been any public proof of these stories.
