Family unity has always been crucial for Richards and Umansky, but it has not stopped the actress from making a significant change on social media.

According to The Blast, the socialite updated her Instagram account to display "Kyle Richards" instead of "Kyle Richards Umansky," but "wife" in her bio.

The exact timing of this change remains unclear, but it coincides with Umansky's decision to move out of their shared home. 

The Blast previously reported that the real estate mogul purchased a luxury condo in West Hollywood, in the same building where actor Matt Damon owns an $8.6 million unit. 

Sources suggested that the father-of-four's new living arrangement stemmed from his ongoing situation with Richards. An insider noted that their dynamic was improving under these new arrangements.
