An upset Kyle Richards appeared to be comforted by some friends after finally confirming her separation from her longtime husband, Mauricio Umansky.
The “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star was photographed looking distraught while on a hike with two pals late Sunday afternoon.
The unidentified ladies rallied around a casually dressed Richards, 54, as she frowned and seemingly teared up behind her black sunglasses.
One of the women leaned in to hug the Bravolebrity before all three walked away from their black car to get their workout on.
Richards sported all black for the outing, pairing a tank top with leggings, a beanie, a jacket tied around her waist and a crossbody bag. She completed her look with hot pink sneakers.
Just before, a paparazzo at Los Angeles International Airport had caught up with the mother of four, who was arriving back home.
Though not eager to chat, she finally admitted that she and Umansky, 53, are “separated.”
“No more. Just no more, please,” someone in Richards’ camp asked the cameraman, who continued his questioning anyway while at baggage claim.
“I’m sick of hearing about it. I’m sure everyone else is sick of hearing about it,” Richards said to the photographer, who then asked whether there was “any chance” she and Umansky can “work through this.”
“That’s private information,” she replied.
As for why she sat in the audience during Umansky’s first week of competing on “Dancing With the Stars” Season 32, the “Housewife” explained, “I support him because that’s what we do.”
Richards came clean about the status of her marriage to the luxury real estate broker only after he did.
Since news of their relationship woes broke in July, the pair has continued to play coy about where they stand romantically.
However, last Friday, Umansky told a pap that he and his wife of 27 years “are currently separated.”
“Kyle and I are human beings, OK? We have emotions, we have feelings, we’re going through a really hard time, OK?” the “Buying Beverly Hills” star explained, insisting that “divorce is not part of [their] conversation right now.”

“We’ve had 26 amazing years,” he went on, emphasizing that although the past year has been “really tough,” they’re “not ready to throw in the towel yet.”
Umansky added that he and Richards are “trying to deal” with their issues “internally” and “privately.”
Moreover, he doesn’t believe the “Halloween” actress has been unfaithful to him with her suspiciously close friend, country singer Morgan Wade.
“There is no doubt in my mind that Kyle has not slept or cheated with Morgan Wade,” he said. “They are really great friends. They are filming stuff together; they’re doing stuff together. They are not in a relationship.”
He made sure to note that he and Richards will “always love each other” and “be friends.”
Over the past few months, fans have speculated that Richards’ “intimate” rapport with Wade, 28, may have contributed to her split from Umansky; however, the ladies continue to deny dating rumors and insist that their relationship is purely platonic.
Though Richards and Umansky have remained tight-lipped about what prompted them to go their separate ways, the former recently “liked” a quote on Instagram about the “pain” of being “ignored” by a partner.
The estranged couple share daughters Alexia, 27, Sophia, 23, and Portia, 15, while Richards is also mom to 34-year-old Farrah Aldjufrie, who seems to be going through her own breakup.
