“I had known that they were having some trouble, but I think when I saw that article I was surprised because it felt like it was more than just trouble,” Dorit exclusively told E! News. “I would say everyone was shocked. I love them both, I want them both to be happy. If that means it’s not together, it’s sad. That’s why selfishly I feel very saddened by it.”
Though Kyle and Mauricio—who share daughters Farrah, 34, Alexia, 27, Sophia, 23 and Portia, 15—have recently said they are still working on their 27-year marriage, Dorit is as hopeful as Bravo fans are that the two can mend their relationship.
“Ultimately, if they decide that they’re not going to be together, because that’s not quite established yet,” the Beverly Beach founder added, “it’s like this overwhelming sadness and surprise.”
