You know that thing you don’t want to talk about, so you never mention it? And then in your reluctance to discuss personal issues, you make a huge deal out of something else? If not, just ask Kyle Richards! The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star has been invited to participate in husband, Mauricio Umansky’s $30 million lawsuit. How cozy!
Mauricio isn’t alone. Fans of the show are well aware some of the other husbands have found themselves entangled in litigation. Right, PK Kemsley? Erika Jayne’s hubby, Tom Girardi is in the middle of protecting his assets against his own $15 million suit. Now, in a hilarious new twist, because the home in Mauricio’s case was featured in an episode of RHOBH, the rest of the ladies could find themselves called into court. If this were Jeopardy, the answer would be, “What is HAHAHAHAHA?”
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the man suing Mauricio and The Agency advised the court he is after “communications with any of the performed, producers, directors, writers, or any other persons affiliated with the ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ television show related to the property or this action.”
Remember Kyle and Mauricio’s Great Gatsby party? Well, because Dorit Kemsley, Lisa Rinna, Erika, and Lisa Vanderpump attended the soiree, they could find themselves in the middle of this legal mess. Lie detector tests for everyone!!
The mansion used for the party had been seized by the United States government from Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue, who ALLEGEDLY used stolen funds from his home country. When Mauricio sold the house to Mauricio Oberfeld for $32.5 million, the sale was approved by the US government. BUT, the seller accused Mauricio of
lying forgetting to mention the higher side-offers he received before the sale. Mauricio ALLEGEDLY neglected to mention he had partnered with the buyer to purchase the property. Mauricio has also been accused of breaching his duties as a real estate agent. After the mansion sold for $69.9 mil, Kyle Mauricio received a profit of $37 million. That’s a shit ton of money, but he does have to put up with Kyle and her family. Kidding!

Anyshadydeals, Mauricio denied all of the allegations and claims the home was taken from Mangue after the U.S. government found his hundreds of millions came from sketchy activity. Mauricio has also stated Mangue’s lawsuit is an attempt to take back the proceeds he forfeited to the United States. This stuff is going on and all we get is #puppygate
That’s not all, producers and writers are being tapped in as well. Mangue believes the cast, producers, and writers may have information relevant to the case against Mauricio. He also wants the real estate agent to turn over all “documents and information related to Defendant’s use of the property including for parties and television.” I have an idea, blame the whole thing on Lisa V.!

In October 2018, Mauricio, The Agency, and Western World Insurance — dismissed a separate lawsuit over the $32 million sale. Western World sued Mauricio because they didn’t want to pay for his legal bills relating to the dispute between the seller of the Malibu home and The Agency.
“Mauricio counter-sued the insurance company and accused them of taking the side of the seller in the dispute over the sale. He denied all allegations of wrongdoing or that he breached their deal. He demanded Western World’s lawsuit against him not move forward until the outcome of the issue with the seller.”

Someone needs to go sage that house STAT. It is clearly possessed by multiple scorned real estate agent ghosts. I hope Andy Cohen does us a favor and asks Kyle about this on the reunion. You know, since it involves all of them now.
TELL US- DO YOU THINK THE LADIES WILL HAVE TO GO TO COURT OVER THIS ISSUE? DO YOU THINK MAURICIO UMANSKY IS GUILTY OF FRAUD? WILL WE GET TO SEE ANY LAWSUIT QUESTIONS ON THE REUNION?
