The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are known for their wealth and high-end lifestyles..and also their lawsuits. So many lawsuits.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast are notorious for being involved in numerous lawsuits and not talking about any of them. Last season, it came about that Kyle Richards and the other ladies had made some kind of pact not to discuss legal drama on the show. That worked okay until Camille Grammer came for Dorit Kemsley for her legal drama.
Since the season wrapped, Mauricio Umansky has been dealing with all sorts of suits related to the sale of a single home. First, Mauricio was sued by Sam Hakim over the potential profit of the home that he missed out on. Then, brokers at The Agency started jumping ship to their direct competition, Hilton & Hyland. Hilton just happens to be Rick Hilton’s company, who is married to Kyle’s sister, Kathy.
Then they got sued by their insurance company, leaving The Agency alone to cover the fees stemming from the suit. Western World Insurance claimed the Mauricio had breached the contract and therefore they were not liable to pay.
Mauricio gave an interesting interview to Inman about all of the suits saying, “We never gave a s–t about how many agents we would have.” It was a weird interview. Now, The Agency and Sweetwater Malibu LLC “are in agreement on the principal terms of a settlement that would resolve the case.” The case was supposed to go to trial on March 31, 2020, but the companies have settled to avoid that process.
Unfortunately, this is only one lawsuit Mauricio was facing. And if they don’t follow the terms of the agreement settled on, it will probably get much worse before it gets better. This isn’t necessarily an admission of guilt from Mauricio and The Agency, but going to trial can be messy and expensive.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will be back in 2020!
