'RHOBH': Who is Guraish Aldjufrie? Kyle Richards reveals why she 'feels bad' for her first husband
'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' star Kyle Richards and her husband Mauricio Umansky might be the picture-perfect couple, with their beautiful home and lovely children. But it may come as surprise to many that Mauricio, or Mo as she lovingly calls him, isn't her first husband.
Prior to falling in love and getting married to the Mexican dreamboat, Kyle was briefly married to Indonesian real-estate tycoon Guraish Aldjufrie. On the upcoming episode of the Bravo show, Kyle opens up about her ex-husband and why she "feels bad" for him while discussing their divorce. If you're curious to know more about Kyle and Guraish, and the reason behind their divorce, then keep reading.
Who is Kyle Richards' first husband Guraish Aldjufrie?
Guraish Aldjufrie is an Indonesian businessman, who currently lives in Bali. He dabbles in land development and real-estate. Although Kyle never went into details about her first marriage, according to several reports, the couple met at a Tina Turner concert. Kyle was still a teenager when she met Guraish, but the couple hit it off almost immediately. After dating for a while, the couple decided to take their relationship to the next level and got married in 1988. Kyle was just eighteen years old when she married Guraish.
Kyle got pregnant with the couple's first child in the first year of their marriage and gave birth to Farrah Brittany Aldjufrie. Though Kyle and Guraish were in love with each other, unfortunately, things didn't work out between them and the couple separated two years later in 1990, and divorced in 1992. Kyle explained in her confessional that though they were divorced, they continue to care for each other. "My ex-husband and I genuinely really care about each other, and just because we got divorced young, that never went away. And we both always put Farrah first.”
Why did Kyle Richards divorce her first husband?
Kyle finally revealed the reason behind divorcing Guraish in the upcoming episode. She explained that she was too young when she got married, which eventually led to their divorce. "He loved me. We have a beautiful daughter together. I loved him. And, um, I was just too young to be married." While Kyle managed to move on from her divorce, marry Mauricio, and start a new family, sadly Guraish couldn't do the same. Kyle revealed that her husband never remarried after their divorce and said she felt "bad" about it. "My ex-husband never got remarried. And I feel so bad because honestly, he’s such a good guy.”
But that doesn't mean that there's any bad blood between Guraish and Mauricio. The housewife revealed that the two men are in fact good friends. "He’s a great guy, and he and [my husband] Mauricio are good friends.” In an interview with The Daily Dish, Farrah too revealed that both her fathers shared a great relationship. "They (Kyle & Guraish) were super, super young when they got married. They always stayed extremely close, extremely good friends," she said. Even Mauricio is a fan. "He's very, very close with my mom and Mauricio, like they're great, great, great friends. I always say I have two dads; they both raised me," Farrah explained. "They both get along amazingly. They've done [real estate] deals together. My dad refers clients to Mauricio all the time. We all get together, he comes to our house for Christmas, Thanksgiving, it's all good. It funny 'cause I'm an only child at one house [with my dad] and then I have this huge family at this other house [with my mom and three younger sisters], so it's kind of the best of both worlds. There's no real separation or divide."
The upcoming 'RHOBH' episode also featured the other housewives- Sutton Stracke, Diana Jenkins, and Erika Jayne, discussing their ex-husbands.
