Kyle Richards and Mauricio Umansky’s former estate in Bel Air, California has undergone some drastic changes that have left “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” fans upset.

Businesswoman Amanda Francis – who bought the property in January 2022 – documented her family’s renovations on social media, prompting Bravo viewers to leave harsh comments on her page.

The harsh criticism prompted Richards, 54, to publicly defend Frances, 38, and tell her fans to “respect” the new owners.

Although the self-made financial advisor spent $6.1 million to purchase the expanded painting, her family clearly felt it needed some updating.

Entrepreneur Ashley Francis began renovations a week after moving in with her family.
They started tearing up the great foyer.

Frances shared a time-lapse video of the first year and a half of renovations, which included gutting the entire grand foyer.

The video shows her husband hitting the original black and white tiles with a sledgehammer before the room appears completely dismantled.

The couple replaced the tiles with hardwood floors and removed the staircase, replacing it with a more modern version with a wrought iron railing. They also added a more modern looking chandelier.

The self-described “thought leader” also destroyed her daughter’s bathroom and bedroom.

In another video posted on August 24, Frances showed two of her children carrying small hammers trying to demolish the bathroom, wardrobe and bedroom.

The updated space features subway tile and pink cabinets.
The dressing room also received a renovation.

The result, dubbed the “Unicorn Princess Suite,” is the removal of black-and-white miniature tiles from the bathroom and replacing them with a mosaic look.

The bathroom storage area was also replaced with an updated pink vanity and white countertop, and the entire shower was converted into an updated bathtub set with subway tile and brass fixtures as well as a yet-to-be-accessed striped glass door. Frances post time.

The updated walk-in closet features what appears to be a custom built-in with plenty of storage and shelves for trinkets.

The updated version features more custom add-ons.

“Honestly, it might be my favorite room in the house,” she wrote.

“(And yes, we’re still waiting for the shower doors… and a few other things, but we’re getting there. Renovation, as anyone who’s done it knows, is definitely not for the faint of heart. It will test you.)”

Richards even told the self-described “thought leader” that she did a “beautiful job” on the renovations and wished her and her family a life filled with “beautiful memories.”
