Kyle Richards’ husband, Mauricio Umansky, recently posted a picture of himself with their daughter Portia, and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans had polarizing opinions about it. Kyle has been in RHOBH since season 1 and fans love her relationship with Mauricio. Along with Portia, they share daughters Alexia, and Sophia. Kyle is also a mom to Farrah Aldjufrie, who she had with her first husband, Guraish Aldjfrie when she was eighteen years old.
Many viewers remember Portia as a sassy toddler in RHOBH season 1. Although she made a few appearances over the years, she and her sisters mainly stayed out of the spotlight. Fans were surprised when Portia made an appearance in RHOBH season 11 and suddenly seemed to have grown up into a teenager. On camera, Kyle shared her worries about how COVID-19 was affecting her youngest daughter as she seemed content to be holed up in her room. However, over time, Kyle was relieved when she saw a vast improvement in Portia’s social life and they celebrated her bat mitzvah with friends and family.
Kyle has always expressed in RHOBH how important her family was to her and loved their close bond. Mauricio recently shared an Instagram picture of Portia lovingly kissing him on the forehead and captioned it with, “Hanging out with my Portia. #Priceless.” Many Instagram users loved the picture and one commented, “Father – Daughter bonds are incredible.” Another wrote, “My Daddy is the love of my life…..also.” RHOBH fans called the picture “sweet” and commented on what a great dad Mauricio was.
Some RHOBH fans called the picture out for being “creepy” and thought Mauricio and Portia were a little too close. One Instagram user commented, “I understand its not creepy to them they are just embracing but its not a good look the hand on the thigh, his head in her chest and in a daybed.” While many fans believed the picture to be an innocent, loving moment between a father and his daughter, some pointed out that the intimate moment may not have been the best for social media. Others thought the moment seemed contrived and that Mauricio may be trying to gain publicity for his new Netflix reality show.
Many Instagram users commented on how Mauricio is portraying himself as a loving father but recently laughed at RHOBH star Erika Jayne cursing out Garcelle Beauvais’ son Oliver, who is the same age as Portia. Mauricio, along with Kyle, Dorit Kemsley, and her husband PK Kemsley, received a lot of heat for making light of the situation. While Mauricio has been a fan favorite of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills since season 1, his latest actions have the public scrutinizing his every move.
