The Real Housewives All-Stars won’t air on Peacock until later this year, but already, the first season of the new series has sparked controversy on social media.
After it was revealed that the actors took part in a week-long getaway to Turks and Caicos, where they received accommodation provided by The Agency, the real estate company of Kyle richards‘husband, Mauricio Umansky, fans began to criticize Kyle for his “self-promotion” and called the series “big publicity.”
As Kyle began filming the new series with his cast mates including The real housewives of New York stars Singer Ramona and Luann de Lesseps, The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast members Teresa giudice and Melissa Gorga, and The Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s Cynthia bailey and Kenya Moore, at the end of last month, fans noticed that Mauricio was also on the island and posting trips from his vacation.
In one article in particular, Mauricio mentioned the location of his real estate company in the Turks and Caicos Islands and promoted the Wymara Resort.
“We love it here on the island. The best water, amazing accommodations, what a great villa we have for sale and amazed with the great dining experiences on the island, ”he wrote.
The agency also promoted the luxury beachfront villa ad on its own page.
After sharing the news about the cast’s vacation rental, a fan took to Twitter.
“I can’t believe that Housewives went to Turks and Caicos to promote a villa the Agency has listed. No wonder Kyle is here. Still promoting the business but can’t talk about lawsuits, ”the person said.

After Bravo Snark Side on Instagram shared a screenshot of the tweet, a number of their followers spoke up. Many have expressed disappointment with the apparent business theme of the upcoming series.
“So on Kyle and his self-promotion,” one person said.
“And they were promoting the devil of [Melissa Gorga]Envy’s pajamas too, yeah, it’s 1 week of shooting we can fire the whole promotion ?? ”another wondered.
“Housewives it’s like watching an hour-long advertisement, ”someone else said.
A fourth fan added, “So the whole show is a big publicity.”
Is the agency therefore an official sponsor of #RHAllStars ?
Kyle knows how to manage. #RHOBH https://t.co/ichpjJ4fib
