RHOBH's Kyle Richards breaks down in tears as she speaks out on Mauricio Umansky split

The reality TV star opened up about the split after 27 years of marriage

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Kyle Richards has broken down in tears after speaking out on her separation from Mauricio Umansky.

The pair, who share three children together; Alexia, 27, Sophia, 23 and Portia, 15, released a joint statement about their relationship earlier this year that stated there was no 'wrongdoing on anyone’s part'.

The 54-year-old has since addressed the split yet again during Sunday’s panel in Las Vegas while wiping away tears.

"This is not my idea of my fairy tale, clearly." the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star told the audience yesterday (5 November)

She went on to mentioned that 'a lot of people' have been telling her to 'fix everything' with 53-year-old Umansky and to 'pull it together'.

"Obviously, that’s what I want," the reality TV personality revealed while getting choked up.

According to TooFab, elsewhere during the panel, Richards said: "I've gone through a lot this last year that does change you. Losing my best friend to suicide changed me.

"Going through my divorce, all that has made me stronger but it definitely changes you as a person. I feel good."

She added: "I'm grateful that we get along so well and love each other very much and we're putting our family first.

"We're still living together under the same roof and I'm proud of the way that we are navigating through this. I just take it a day at a time."

Claims first surfaced about the couple's alleged decision to separate a few months back (3 July) saying that the couple, who first met at a nightclub way back in 1994 and tied the knot just a couple years later in early 1996, had 'been separated for a while now'.

A source close to the pair allegedly told People: "Kyle and Mauricio have been separated for a while now but are still living under the same roof.

"They remain amicable as they figure out what’s next for them and their family."

A day later (4 July), Richards responded to the claims, taking to Instagram to share with her 4.1 million followers a statement on the matter, uploading both to her feed and story.

Kyle Richards addressed the rumours with a statement posted to Instagram.

The post reads: "In regards to the news that came out about us today... Any claims regarding us divorcing are untrue.

"However, yes, we have had a rough year. The most challenging one of our marriage. But we both love and respect each other tremendously."

Richards went on to inform her fans 'there has been no wrongdoing on anyone's part'.

"Although we are in the public eye, we ask to be able to work through our issues privately," she continued. "While it may be entertaining to speculate, please do not create false stories to fit a further salacious narrative."

Kyle concluded the post thanking her following for the 'love and support' before signing off as 'Kyle & Mauricio'.
