Kyle Richards nearly quit The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills over allegations that her husband Mauricio Umansky cheated on her and now faces new claims he was involved in a kinky threesome.
The 44-year-old reality TV star was talked out of leaving last month by the show's producers, but new revelations of an alleged threesome involving her husband, a female escort and a transsexual prostitute have surfaced. Kyle and 42-year-old Mauricio have been married for 17 years and have three daughters together, Alexia, Sophia and Portia.
Mauricio has been the subject of philandering rumours and Star magazine this week added fuel with its report of a wild sex threesome. The magazine interviewed a transgender former prostitute who claimed that her female escort partner brought Mauricio back to their home after picking him up at The Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel.
Toni Newman, a transsexual known as Mistress Terri, said she and her escort partner Mistress Carmen, 29, ran their sex business out of their apartment in the Los Feliz area of Los Angeles. 'We had many high-end clients between 2003 and 2005, Mauricio being one of them,' said the 50-year-old Newman, who recently released the memoir I Rise detailing her life as a prostitute, Newman said the duo worked by having Mistress Carmen take men into her room where she would offer them the option of having her transsexual partner come in. 'Mauricio went for the threesome option and in a kinky twist asked both of them to dress up as police officers, Newman said.
Mauricio has denied the claims by Newman and Mistress Carmen, calling them 'false' and 'utterly ridiculous.' Kyle, who is the aunt of Paris Hilton, was confronted last month by co-stars Brandi Glanville and Lisa Vanderpump over Mauricio's alleged infidelities. She reportedly refused to listen to them and was so upset she called producers to quit the show, but was talked out of it. Kyle also has a daughter Farrah, 24, from her first marriage to Guraish Aldjufrie in 1988.
The fourth season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is set to premiere in the fall.
