Kyle Richards and Mauricio Umansky have an enviable marriage, especially by reality show standards. So what's the secret to happiness for this Real Housewives of Beverly Hills couple?
 
Wetpaint Entertainment caught up with Kyle at an awards gala for the Family Equality Council in Universal City, California, where she talked to us exclusively about how she and Mauricio keep things spicy, and what the lovebirds have planned for Valentine’s Day!

Wetpaint Entertainment: You and Mauricio make marriage look easy, do you have any tips to keep relationships thriving?
Kyle Richards: You know we always got along really well, we never had a fighting relationship or anything like that. But we definitely worked through the bumps of our 20’s and then our 30’s and now it is so much easier now. Everyone says oh it’s so hard and I’m like that’s because you’re in the beginning stages. The things I used to argue with Mauricio about in my twenties, I’m like, ‘Ugh who has the time to even care about that anymore?’ It really is just about appreciating each other and making that person feel appreciated every day. When my husband comes home I want him to feel like he is in his sanctuary and welcome into a happy home and a loving environment. So that’s something really important to me.

Any plans for Valentine’s Day?
I’ve got to come up with something good because we just went away to Puerto Rico for five days for our anniversary so I know he’s not going to be thinking about Valentine’s Day so I’ll come up with something. I think it’s in my hands this time.
