Kyle Richards’ Palm Springs House

Jun 6th, 2011 | By | Category: Celebrity Homes


Last weekend, the Grim Cheaper and I once again headed out to Palm Springs for a little weekend getaway and while there I, of course, just had to drag him out to stalk the vacation home belonging to Kyle Richards and her husband, Mauricio Umansky, which was featured in the Season 1 episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills titled “Chocolate Louboutins”.  I found this location thanks to a Real Housewives message board on the Survivor Sucks website and wrongly assumed that it was going to be quite the easy little stalk.  And I should mention here that I absolutely CANNOT stand Kyle Richards (I think the woman is just a big ol’ bully who completely manipulates her older sister, child star Kim Richards), but because I love the show, I was absolutely dying to stalk the residence.  So, the GC and I headed right on over there while killing time before grabbing dinner with his boss our first night in the Desert.  Things did not turn out quite as planned, though, as we arrived at our destination only to discover that it was located inside of the private and gated Indian Wells Country Club!  Yes, this particular stalk was a definite fail!

As you can see in the above photographs, the only part of the neighborhood visible from the street is the guard shack.

Sadly, not much can be see via aerial views, either.

In the “Chocolate Louboutins” episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Kyle and Mauricio invite their friends Lisa Vanderpump and Ken Todd, as well as Kyle’s sister Kim and her four children to spend Easter Weekend at their family home in the Coachella Valley.  And while it is stated in the episode that Kyle’s house is located in Palm Desert, in actuality, the property is located just east of Palm Desert in the city of Indian Wells, directly behind the Indian Wells Resort Hotel, which, as it just so happens, was founded by Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, but that is another story for another post.   Winking smile

In the episode, Kyle says that the 3 bedroom, 2 bath house, which was built in 1985 and measures 1,503 square feet, originally belonged to her mother, but that it is now used as a family home.  There has been much speculation online, though, that it was possibly this residence that Kim was referring to in the Season 1 finale episode titled “Unforgivable” when she screamed at Kyle, “You stole my god-damn house!”  According to some of the gossip on several Real Housewives message boards (and please keep in mind that it is just that, gossip, and that I have no idea whatsoever if any of it is true), Kim at one time owned the Indian Wells house and that somehow Kyle got the rights to it after their mother passed away or possibly that Kim paid for property with her childhood earnings and then when the mother passed away, the home was divided up among all three Richards sisters.  Who knows what the actual story is, but let me tell you, I am absolutely DYING to know!  You can check out some of the message board gossip about the house here and here.

Until next time, Happy Stalking!  Smile

Stalk It: Kyle Richard’s house, from the “Chocolate Louboutins” episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, is located at 45389 Club Drive in Indian Wells.  The home is located inside of the Indian Wells Country Club, which is a private, gated community, so please do not trespass.

    I’m looking forward to your post on the Indian Wells Resort Hotel (different than the country club) since we stayed there ealier this year. Tons of cool old photos in the lobby of Bob Hope, Dean Martin, Lucy & Desi, etc… After the Caliente Tropics, this is the 2nd time in a week you have brought up a hotel that we have stayed at. Its almost like you are stalking us!

      I have stayed there several times in the past 2 years. Love the photos too but the hotel keeps going downhill in my estimation. We have stopped staying there as it is too run down and the clientele is so ill behaved. Sad cause it’s a pretty location.

      • John (Bay Area) says:

        Yeah, the front lobby makes it seem like a real hoity-toity place and then you get to the room and it looks a little dated and rundown. Still you can get a pretty good deal there and its got a very nice pool with a view of the golf course.

  2. Love that you are in Palm Springs a favortie of mine.
