Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards had a lot of splainin’ to do during a recent appearance on Good Morning America, where she promoted her new book, Life Is Not a Reality Show. What was it that she said that’s got everyone buzzing…and questioning their spouses? Keep reading to find out.
In her book, Life Is Not a Reality Show: Keeping It Real With The Housewife Who Does It All, Kyle Richards offers up a little marriage advice, saying that spouses “get a free pass” if they cheat; a quote that the Bravo reality star found herself having to defend during a visit to Good Morning America.
Making it clear that she wasn’t referring to her 17-year marriage to hubby Mauricio Umansky (phew!), Richards explained that she’s witnessed how keeping a few secrets can save a relationship.
“I’ve seen circumstances with people that I know are in love with their spouse and they made one mistake and I said — this is somebody that I know, nobody that anybody knows here, ‘Listen, if this really was a one time mistake, and you did not put this person in jeopardy,’ I personally think you should deal with it yourself and with God and not go and say: ‘Honey look what I did,’ because I knew that this would ruin their relationship and their life.
“So I said, ‘It did not happen.’ And I can tell you that many, many, many years later they’re happy and together and she did make that mistake and she has to carry that and live with that,” Richards added, again assuring everyone – including Mauricio – that she hasn’t been unfaithful in her own relationship.
