Kyle Richards defends buying 16-year-old daughter a $90K Porsche

Kyle Richards fully supports her estranged husband Mauricio Umansky’s decision to buy their 16-year-old daughter a $90,000 Porsche.

While out and about in Los Angeles on Friday, the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star, 55, told TMZ that her youngest daughter, Portia, “deserves” the Porsche that she and Umansky gifted her as her first car.

Richards defended the pricey purchase, saying the car “wasn’t as expensive” as reported but she “understands” the criticism she and Umansky received.

Pricing aside, she also shared that Portia is “a very good driver.”

“She’s a straight A student. She’s a good kid,” she said.

When asked if she thinks Portia deserves the luxury vehicle, Richards answered, “I think so.”

She also notably referred to Umansky, 53, as her “husband” as she told the outlet that buying the super expensive car was his idea.

“He works very hard and you can talk to him about [the car],” she said. “That was his purchase.”

Umansky wasn’t present for Richards’ impromptu interview as the “Halloween” actress was only joined by a friend.

Richards’ new comments on the Porsche come three days after the pricey gift was revealed in clips posted to their daughter Sophia’s TikTok.

In one video, Portia could be seen walking out the front door of the family’s Encino, Calif., home. Immediately upon seeing the car, an overwhelmed Portia broke down in tears.

“Are you serious?” she said while quickly moving toward the all-black luxury vehicle — which appeared to be a Cayenne Coupé ranging anywhere between $84,700 and $203,000.

Richards and Umansky, who were joined by their 28-year-old daughter, Alexia, and 24-year-old daughter, Sophia, then walked up to hug their youngest daughter.

Richards’ eldest daughter, Farrah Aldjufrie, 35, with whom she shares from a previous relationship, wasn’t present.

Seeing the entire family together again was somewhat of a surprise as Richards recently revealed her estranged husband moved out of their marital home in May — nine months after the pair revealed their split following 27 years of marriage.

The realtor moved into a West Hollywood bachelor pad.

“I always knew when that day came it would feel strange, very real all of a sudden,” she said at the time. ”And that’s exactly what happened. I’m a mom of four, I have a busy household.”

“The day that he moved out was just strange because I came home and I’m like, ‘Everything’s so quiet,’” she recalled on an episode of the “Bitch Bible” podcast. “I was like, ‘Where is everybody?’”

Umansky moved his things out of their marital home while Richards was “out of town” one weekend. She admitted the move was “the smart thing to do.”

“I didn’t want to be there to see that,” she said.
