Kyle Richards’ Early Life
Kyle Richards, born on January 11, 1969, in Hollywood California, is the second daughter of Kathleen Mary Richards and Kenneth Edwin Richards.
Before Kathleen and Kenneth’s deaths in 2002 and 1998 respectively, they finalized their divorce in 1972, causing Kathleen to tie the knot twice more and bringing the number of men she married to four (she first married Lawrence Avanzino, with whom she had Kathy Hilton)
Born in the centre of America’s pop culture, Kylie is of English, Welsh and Irish ancestry and related to many famous faces. She is the half-sister of actress Kathy Hilton and aunt to Kathy Hilton’s daughters, socialite Paris Hilton and her sister fashion designer Nicky Hilton.
Her elder sister, Kim Richards is also a former child actress and TV personality. She has four children from two marriages and one relationship.
Kylie Richards began acting at the age of 4. She made her TV debut as Julie in an episode of Police Woman in 1974. The following year she portrayed Alicia Sanderson Edwards in the TV series Little House on the Prairie which lasted through 1982 with 19 episodes.
While she acted in Little House on the Prairie, Kylie also took up minor roles in mostly made-for-TV movies or direct-to-DVD-films, most of which were horrible. Some of them include; A Circle of Children (1977), The Car (1977), Eaten Alive (1977), Halloween (1978) and The Watcher in the Woods (1980).
Her works after Little House on the Prairie included This is Kate Bennett… (1982), Curfew (1989) and Escape (1990). Her next long-term appearance in TV was in Down to Earth which lasted for 12 episodes from 1984 to 1985. Next up was in ER from 1998-2001 where she portrayed Nurse Dori for 21 episodes, becoming her longest TV role ever. Kylie Richards starred in the 2014 parody of The Hunger Games and The Hangover titled The Hungover Games.
While her acting career looked like it would never rank her with the likes of Jennifer Aniston, Kyle found more money and fame in reality TV. She was chosen in 2010 to star in the sixth instalment of The Real Housewives franchise The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Kylie together with Lisa Vanderpump is the show’s longest-running and remaining original housewives. The duo has come to be seen as the franchise of the show as their presence keeps bringing high ratings for the Bravo show despite the quitting of others.
Despite rumours that she may leave after the sixth season after she allegedly got furious that Bravo aired so much of her family drama, Kyle was reported to be filming for the 7th season. Some fans also speculated that it was a stunt to increase her pay which is currently at $270,000 per season.
In August 2016 it was revealed that Kyle Richards began production of her own Land TV series American Woman which will be based on her mom and how she raised her and her sisters in the 1970s.
Meet Her Husband and Daughters
The American actress has tasted the matrimonial waters twice. The first attempt was done as a teenager and like many early marriages, it crashed. From her first marriage to Guraish Aldjufrie to the second time around with Mauricio Umansky and her four children, we explore the love life of Kyle Richards.
Guraish Aldjufrie (Ex Husband)
- Full name: Guraish Aldjufrie
- Date of birth: September 21, 1964
- Occupation: NA
- Nationality: Indonesian
Richards’ first marriage began in 1988 when she wedded Indonesian Guraish Aldjufrie. Despite carrying Aldyfrie’s child at the time of the wedding, Kyle was full of energy, and all smiles as she said “I Do” to her heartthrob at the age of 18. Guraish is a real estate mogul whose family owns large properties across Indonesia and the United States.
The marriage, however, didn’t last as Kyle and Aldjufrie separated in 1990 and finalized their divorce in 1992. This was after their daughter, Farrah Aldjufrie arrived in 1988. Nonetheless, there are no hard feelings between the ex-couple and Guraish is even known to be friendly with Kyle’s current husband who is also in the real estate business. They have reportedly worked together on several occasions.
Mauricio Umansky (Husband)
- Full name: Mauricio Umansky
- Date of birth: June 26, 1970
- Nationality: Mexican
- Occupation: Real estate agent
Currently, Kyle Richards is the daughter-in-law of Estella Sneider, a renowned Mexican television and radio personality, sex therapist, psychologist, author, and socialite. While she was four months pregnant with her second child, Kyle and Sneider’s son, Mauricio Umansky, of Greek, Jewish and Russian ancestry, tied the knot on January 20, 1996. The couple met and started a relationship in 1994.
Umansky is a real estate businessman based in Los Angeles. Kyle converted to Modern Orthodox Judaism following their marriage.
Though Umansky was raised in Mexico, he and his lovely, ever-supportive wife moved to a mansion in Bel Air, Los Angeles, which they bought for $3 million, together with their three children Alexia (born 1996), Sophia (born 2000), and Portia (born 2008).
Farrah Aldjufrie (Daughter)
- Full name: Farrah Brittany Aldjufrie
- Date of birth: October 31, 1988
- Occupation: Real estate agent, reality television personality
Farrah is the only child born between Kyle Richards and her first husband Guraish Aldjufrie. Thus, she is of English and Irish background from her mother’s side and Indonesian from her father’s side of the family.
She graduated summa cum laude in high school and got admission to study Psychology at New York University but later transferred to the University of Southern California where she graduated magna cum laude. Farrah joined her stepfather’s real estate company (Umansky Group) after college and has gradually risen to the role of Director of Client Relations. So far, she has contributed to at least $200 million worth of sales as a real estate agent.
Farrah became a sensation on reality television when in 2014, her mother, Kyle, and aunt Kim Richards became stars of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She made occasional appearances on the show alongside her half-sisters.
Alexia Umansky (Daughter)
- Full name: Alexia Simone Umansky
- Date of birth: June 18, 1996

Kyle was 4 months pregnant with Alexia when she exchanged vows with Mauricio Umansky in 1996. She is the first child in her second marriage.
Asides her famous family, Alexia’s other claim to fame is a reality TV star on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alongside her mom and siblings. She also made headlines when she needed surgery following an attack from her aunt’s pit bull but after a few days in the emergency room, she was back to normal.

Alexia is also following up the family business of real estate and is already building a reputable profile in that regard. While in college, Alexia was a member of Alpha Phi sorority. She is also popular on social media with more than 171k followers on Instagram alone.
Sophia Umansky (Daughter)
- Full name: Sophia Umansky
- Date of birth: January 18, 2000
- Occupation: Reality TV star, model
While her older sisters are more interested in sustaining the family legacy in the real estate industry, Sophia seems to be going in the direction of the fashion industry.
In February 2020, Kyle Richards took to Instagram to gush about her third daughter’s success on the ramp. She shared pictures and video of Sophia rocking the runway at New York Fashion Week and though she said she was a bit nervous as it was her second outing on the runway, Sophia nailed it.
She is currently attending The Georgetown University and would probably give modelling a chance. Joining the family business in the real estate sector is also not entirely off the table for Sophia.
Portia Umansky (Daughter)
- Full name: Portia Umansky
- Date of birth: March 1, 2008
- Occupation: Reality TV star, actress
Portia is the youngest child in the family and is also known for her appearances on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Among Kyle’s daughters, Portia is the only one who truly wants to follow her footsteps in the acting world. The young lady has already shown interest in acting and her mom have had to take her to auditions which she says is a bit awkward sometimes. It takes her down memory lane to when she was being taken to auditions by her own mother.
Portia is also showing signs of being a fashion enthusiast. She is equally a true daddy’s girl. She was just about two years old when her family started appearing on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills which means she grew up under the spotlight.
An Inside Look at Her House
Kyle’s family currently resides in a beautiful 7-bedroom mansion, newly-purchased in October 2017, for $8.2 million. The family moved into their home after putting up their smaller 7-bedroom mansion in Bel-Air for sale.
Umansky and Kyle’s Bel-Air mansion, bought in 2011, is a seven-bedroom, eight-bathroom house, with French doors, fireplaces in the living room and dining room, kitchen skylights, a wet bar, bookshelves, and sports courts.
Their new estate, located in San Fernando Valley Encino, however, features elegant home theatre, fireplaces, dressing room, spa, swimming pool, rolling lawn, well-crafted living and dining room.
A Look Into Kyle Richards’ Business Earnings and Net Worth
In addition to her show business, Kyle Richards has her own high-end retail store – Kyle by Alene Too – which sells luxury designer clothing, shoes and accessories for women. The store which also sells online is located in Beverly Hills and in The Hamptons with plans to expand to other locations.
Richards net worth is estimated at $100 million. She reportedly earns $270,000 per season from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. However, it is believed that a greater part of the wealth she enjoys comes from her union with her real estate agent husband.
