News broke on Monday that Kyle Richards and Mauricio Umansky of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills have separated after 27 years of marriage.

In other words, Camille Grammer’s medium was right. Let me explain.

Thirteen years ago, Camille Grammer, then wife of Kelsey Grammer, was an original cast member of RHOBH. Grammer was and remains to this day, a shit-stirrer. Her relationship with Kyle has always been tenuous, but never more so than during the ‘Dinner Party From Hell’ episode of the show in season 1.

Grammer hired a medium, Allison DuBois (which is also a great drag name if anyone wants it) to come to the dinner party she was throwing for her girlfriends and give them all readings.

“Don’t get me started,” was the beginning of Kyle Richards’s reading, and it was all downhill from there. DuBois predicted, “He will never emotionally fulfill you—know that,” of Umansky, but assured Richards that she would nevertheless stay with her husband and be taken care of by him. DuBois also warned that Richards and Umansky would “have nothing in common” once their kids grew up.

“What are you talking about?” Kyle said in her confessional interview. “Have you seen my husband? I mean, hello!”

Richards and Umansky both posted the same sober message on their separate Instagram accounts in response to the news.

“Any claims regarding us divorcing are untrue. However, yes, we have had a rough year. The most challenging one of our marriage,” the post read. “But we both love and respect each other tremendously. There has been no wrongdoing on anyone’s part. Although we are in the public eye, we ask to be able to work through our issues privately. While it may be entertaining to speculate, please do not create false stories to create a further salacious narrative.”

The false stories they refer to are the rumors of Kyle having an affair with country singer Morgan Wade.

DuBuois, of course, is all “I told you so!” She wrote in the caption of a since taken down Instagram post, “My phone is blowing up from reporters now that Kyle and Mauricio have separated. So, here’s my comment ‘I don’t wish Kyle ill, I hope she finds what she’s looking for. I guess I’m the only person who ‘saw’ this coming. People kept telling me I was picking up on Camille’s divorce NOT Kyle (Okay, you armchair psychics can sit down now.)’ Mic drop.”

Whether DuBois really did see the future or just made a very good guess, we’ll never know. But maybe this means that Kyle will be the next member of the Gay Housewives Club? A girl can dream.
