As reported by People, he was surprised when Richards revealed her five tattoos and asked her, "Seriously? I only knew of three." Richards replied, "Well maybe you should be looking at my body closer." Instead of joining in on the joke, Umanksy took a serious turn, telling the RHOBH actress that she already had "enough" tattoos and should stop adding to her collection. He told her, "No, Bean, that’s enough. Five tattoos is a lot. I will not allow that." Richards concluded, "If I want one, I’m going to get one. It’s my body … you don’t have a choice." The socialite criticized him during a confessional for failing to see that they were "not spending time together." She added, "Years ago, he would’ve noticed a freckle on my body. Now, he doesn’t know that I have two more tattoos."

During the aforementioned chat, Umansky praised Richards for her dedication to her new health and fitness regimen. He told her, "You look so good. You're working out like a beast right now; you're eating well, but you're not drinking. Like, you're changing your life." Richards then provided a more in-depth explanation of her recent shifts in behavior. Alluding to the issues between her and Umansky, as well as the turmoil she's been having with her sister Kathy Hilton and the rest of the cast of RHOBH in Season 12. She further added, "When you go through painful times in your life, it changes you as a person. My sister, feeling let down by my friends, feeling disconnected from my husband—you know, you have to find an outlet. I feel good about it, and I hope Mo does too, because here I am."
