Are the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Exposed For Ratings?

Does the husband of Kyle Richards from "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" get paid to go shirtless?

Hollyscoop caught up Mauricio Umansky, Richard's husband of 18 years, at the KIIS-FM's Wango Tango to get to the bottom of things. Mainly, the rumors of why the realtor, who specializes in luxury, is constantly steaming up the lens—baring enough to tease, but not nearly enough to satisfy the shows religious viewers.

The very flattered and gracious father of four assured us that “there's certainly no deal or anything like that,” with Bravo, the show’s network. “But, you know, they seem to catch me every once in a while.” Lucky for his fans.

As for his thoughts on being the hottest housewife husband ever, he responded with, “Oh, thank you so much. That's so sweet of you. I don't know… it's funny. It's quite entertaining actually.”

These two are an inspiration to couples who are quick to diss and dismiss their significant others in the plain sight of the public eye, Mauricio tells us the secret to his and Kyle’s enduring relationship, “We're best friends. We like to hang out together. I mean she's an amazing woman. She's an amazing lover… She's an amazing person. We just try to hang out and be friends and that's the reality.”

And if his loyal followers thought there was nothing more attractive than this chunk of eye-candy holding his four-year-old daughter (bare-chested), re-read that last paragraph.
