Last night (May 28), Kyle Richards’ extravagant Halloween party for her daughter, Farrah, on her 30th birthday in October 2018 was finally featured on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Farrahween, on the other hand, was missing the birthday girl’s father. While it’s easy to overlook Farrah’s father amid the Lisa Rinna drama and the genuine Ferris (or rather, Farrah’s) wheel at the party, many people are curious about him. Kyle Richards was previously married to Guriash Aldjufrie, who is rarely mentioned on RHOBH. We’ve got Guraish Aldjufrie’s wiki for everything you need to know about Kyle Richards’ first husband.
Guraish Aldjufrie is of Indonesian Origin
On September 21, 1964, Guraish Aldjufrie was born. Guraish is Indonesian, Arab, and Dutch, according to Kyle Richards. He is not active on social media (probably because of his shy demeanor Farrah and Kyle talk so much about). However, based on the few posts on Farrah’s Instagram, we know that he is currently residing in Bali.
Guraish also has relatives spread across Indonesia. Farrah is very close to her father, despite the distance between Bali and Beverly Hills. She has visited her father and grandfather in Indonesia on several occasions, and Guraish visits California for both personal and business reasons.
Kyle is of Irish and Welsh descent. As a result, their daughter carries some multi-ethnic genes.
Aldjufrie and Richards They Married In 1988
Kyle revealed that she met Guraish Aldjufrie, five years her senior, at a Tina Turner concert when she was in her teens. He hadn’t been in Los Angeles long and didn’t speak much English. Kyle was approached by a friend who asked her out on his behalf.
“I lied and said I was 19, that I had braces, and that I was hiding my braces,” Kyle explained. “And then I got scared, so I brought a friend with me, and then it was like a crowd, and he was in the crowd, and we became friends.” He speaks excellent English now, but he did not when we first met.”
Nonetheless, they hit it off and married in a small ceremony in 1988. Farrah Aldjufrie, their daughter, was born the same year.
Kyle and Guraish Are Still Great Pals
Kyle found that being a mother was easier than being a wife when she first married. “I eventually couldn’t do it and left, and I felt so guilty for such a long time,” she explained. “I felt terrible. I was simply too young to marry. We’re still friends, and he knows my husband.”
Kyle and Guraish separated in 1990 and divorced two years later in 1992. Richards would later meet Mauricio Umansky and marry him in 1994.
Kyle and Mauricio have three daughters together: Alexia, Sophia, and Portia. Guraish has not remarried, and Farrah claims she has no siblings on her father’s side.
Farrah claims her parents have a strong bond even though they are no longer together. Guraish is also very close to Mauricio.
“He’s very close to my mother and Mauricio, as if they’re great, great, great friends.”
“I always say I have two fathers because they both raised me,” Farrah explained.
“We all get together, he [Guraish] comes to our house for Christmas, Thanksgiving, it’s all good,” she continued. It’s funny because I’m an only child in one house [with my father] and then I have this huge family in the other house [with my mother and three younger sisters], so it’s kind of like having the best of both worlds. There is no real division or separation.”
Aldjufrie is a Real Estate Magnate
As Kyle mentioned, the Aldjufrie family is involved in real estate in both Indonesia and the United States. They owned property in both California and Indonesia.
Guraish specializes in land development and commercial real estate in Indonesia, as well as real estate in California. This also creates a strong bond between Guraish and Mauricio, a successful realtor.
“They both get along amazingly,” Farrah says. They’ve done [real estate] transactions together. My father frequently refers clients to Mauricio.”
