In 2011 he founded The Agency, which the Netflix show focuses on

Netflix has just released Buying Beverly Hills, another reality show all about the most luxurious real estate in LA. This one focuses on a brokerage run by Mauricio Umansky, which has helped him to earn himself a pretty eye-watering net worth.

Mauricio Umansky owns The Agency in Beverly Hills, California. Mauricio, his daughters Farrah and Alexia, and the talented group of agents highlight the high stakes world of luxury real estate in Los Angeles. From shows like Selling Sunset we’ve learned that real estate makes people mega bucks, so just how rich is Mauricio Umansky?

The net worth of Mauricio Umansky will probably have you shedding a tear or two

Mauricio is known as one of the most successful realtors in the country, and in the series we see the company has listings priced at $42million and $139million in its books at the moment. Casually. He’s also married to Kyle Richards, and has appeared on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alongside her before.

His career actually began in fashion, after graduating Mauricio founded a clothing company called 90265. The company did well, and he was able to successfully sell it when he was aged 26. He founded real estate company The Agency in 2011 and has had some pretty impressive celebrity clients, such as the Hemsworth brothers.

Right now, Mauricio Umansky is said to be sitting on a net worth of $100million. His brokerage is said to sell more than $150million worth of property every year on average. His wife Kyle is also mega rich. She’s one of the richest cast members in the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, also worth $100million. So between them, they have a joint net worth of $200million.

Mauricio and Kyle own some pretty impressive real estate assets of their own. They’ve lived in a huge home in Encino, California since 2017 and also have a holiday home in the desert in La Quinta, California.

Buying Beverly Hills is available on Netflix now. For all the latest Netflix news, drops, quizzes and memes like The Holy Church of Netflix on Facebook.

WWE Rumors on Theory's Failed Cash-In and WarGames Plans; Logan Paul Injury Update

Bleacher Report catches you up on the latest news from the WWE Universe.

WWE Reportedly Tried to Keep Theory's Cash-In a Surprise

Austin Theory cashing in his Money in the Bank contract on Monday night's episode of Raw was reportedly kept under wraps by WWE going into the show.

According to Fightful Select (h/t WrestlingInc's Fernando Quiles Jr.), Theory's cash-in was not listed on internal documents, making it the only thing that occurred on Raw that wasn't on the run sheet.

Theory's cash-in was indeed shocking since he used his contract on Seth Rollins' United States Championship rather than Roman Reigns' undisputed Universal Championship, marking the first time Money in the Bank wasn't used on a world title.

On top of that, Theory lost after Bobby Lashley interfered in the match, making him one of just a handful of Superstars to cash in the briefcase and lose.

Theory won Money in the Bank when Vince McMahon was head of WWE creative, and it was clear that he was on the fast track to becoming a top star and future world champion.

There were questions regarding whether Theory's standing would change when McMahon retired and Triple H took over as head of creative in July, and that does seem to be the case.

Triple H was chiefly responsible for signing Theory and building him up in NXT, though, which could mean The Game still sees big things for him in the future.

For now, the unsuccessful cash-in on the United States Championship means he will essentially have to be rebuilt from the ground up.

Major Spots Planned for Survivor Series WarGames?

Performers are reportedly expected to pull off some wild spots in the men's and women's WarGames matches at Survivor Series WarGames this month.

According to Bryan Alvarez of Wrestling Observer Radio (h/t Sunil Joseph of Ringside News), there is likely to be some "craziness" in the WarGames matches so WWE can use the footage for promotion of future WarGames matches and premium live events.

Alvarez noted that WWE's desire for that type of footage stems from the fact that many of the Superstars who took part in WarGames matches in NXT are no longer with the company.

Undisputed Era competed in four of the five men's WarGames matches in NXT, and the only member of that group still under contract with WWE is Roderick Strong.

Other NXT WarGames participants gone from WWE include AOP, Sanity, Keith Lee, Oney Lorcan, Danny Burch, Tegan Nox, Toni Storm and Ember Moon.

Every wrestler from both WarGames matches at last year's event is still with WWE, however.

Regardless of any need for footage, WarGames matches are conducive to huge spots and memorable moments, and there is little doubt that the men's and women's WarGames matches at Survivor Series will have all of that in spades.

The women's match will pit Damage CTRL, Nikki Cross and a partner to be named against Bianca Belair, Asuka and Alexa Bliss and two unknown teammates. No announcements have been made on the men's WarGames match, but it figures to feature The Bloodline on one side.

Bringing WarGames to the main roster was one of Triple H's first major announcements after becoming head of creative, so he will likely do everything in his power to ensure it succeeds.

Paul Already Rehabbing Knee Injury

Just days after suffering a knee injury at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia, Logan Paul is already on the road to recovery.

According to Subhojeet Mukherjee of Ringside News, Paul posted video of himself rehabbing at Sports Rehab LA in Encino, California, on his Instagram story.

Last week Saturday, Paul competed in the main event of Crown Jewel, falling to undisputed WWE universal champion Roman Reigns in a match that was widely praised.

After the match, Paul announced that he suffered a torn meniscus and MCL, as well as a potentially torn ACL.

If Paul did indeed tear multiple knee ligaments, including his ACL, it is likely that he will miss at least six months, and perhaps even as much as a year depending on how his recovery goes.

Paul is a part-time wrestler, so he may not have been scheduled for many matches during that time, but it seems likely that he would have been part of WrestleMania.

That almost certainly won't be possible if Paul tore his ACL, meaning WWE could be without some major star power.

Wrestling fans were seemingly hesitant to embrace Paul at first, but given how well he has performed in just three career matches, fans seem to be coming around.

The Crown Jewel match established Paul as a threat near the top of the card, and he is likely to be involved in something huge whenever he returns from injury.

Different men have different needs when it comes to metastatic PC—which often point the way to the right treatment approach, doctors say.

Metastatic prostate cancer can feel like a pretty scary diagnosis. It means that the disease has spread beyond your prostate to other parts of your body, such as your lymph nodes, bones, liver, and lungs. Unlike the disease in its early stages, prostate cancer at this point cannot be cured. But that doesn’t mean there’s no hope—there is. New approaches to treatment have shown to significantly prolong lives while maintaining quality of life. Let’s take a look at how cancer specialists view mono-, doublet, and triplet therapies—and which one might be best for you.

Prostate cancer is fueled by androgens (male sex hormones), the most abundant of which is testosterone. Most androgens are produced in your testicles, though your adrenal glands and even cancer cells can produce small amounts, too. To slow the disease, doctors perform castration—we know that sounds bad, but keep reading—to stop androgen production. They do so with hormone therapy, using medications or, less commonly, the surgical removal of your testicles. “The backbone of treatment is androgen suppression,” says Manish A. Vira, M.D., the system chief of urology at the Northwell Cancer Institute in New Hyde Park, NY.

Hormone therapy is most effective in men who are considered what cancer specialists call ‘”hormone-sensitive,” responding well to either medical or surgical castration. As the disease progresses, however, hormone therapy becomes less and less effective for most men. This stage is known as “castrate-resistant” prostate cancer, and it is much harder to treat. “[Castration-resistant prostate cancer] is a very difficult space,” says Sandy Liu, M.D., medical director of genitourinary medical oncology at City of Hope Orange County in Irvine, CA. A primary goal of hormone therapy is to keep the cancer from progressing to that point for as long as possible.

Hormone therapy most often involves a cocktail of different treatments. It usually includes two drugs, called a doublet, though the latest research has shown that a three-drug combination, or triplet therapy, has significantly greater benefits. Rarely, doctors use a single drug strategy, called monotherapy, for men with advanced prostate cancer because combination therapy typically works better. “People live longer” with combination therapy, says John Shen, M.D., a medical oncologist at UCLA Health Encino Cancer Care in Encino, CA. “There’s almost no case in which a patient shouldn’t be considered for a secondary [medication].” However, there are exceptions.

In doublet therapy, the most common approach, oncologists prescribe two drugs: an androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) drug, such as Lupron, with either the chemotherapy drug Taxotere (docetaxel) or one of the newer, more effective anti-androgens: Erleada (apalutamide), Nubeqa (darolutamide), Xtandi (enzalutamide), and Zytiga (abiraterone). Zytiga blocks testosterone production outside the testicles, while the other drugs prevent testosterone from binding to proteins called androgen receptors, which would otherwise stimulate prostate cancer growth. “For most patients with newly diagnosed metastatic prostate cancer, using Lupron with an [anti-androgen] or chemo is the standard,” says Dr. Vira.

A major shift in treatment has seen drugs like the newer anti-androgens used earlier in the disease. Dr. Vira says that they once were approved only for men whose prostate cancer had stopped responding to standard hormone therapy. Over the past several years, research has shown these drugs to be very effective when given earlier on, in combination with ADT. “One of the debates that happens all the time is about the right sequence of medications,” says Dr. Vira. Using them before cancer becomes castrate-resistant is a welcome development, says Dr. Liu: “We are pushing survival with these new treatment options.”

The hurricane moving up the coast is expected to bring muggy weather Friday followed by a cool-down and chance of showers over the weekend.

LOS ANGELES, CA — The dramatic record-setting heatwave that's lasted for 10 days, spurred on wildfires and brought California to the brink of an energy crisis may come to an end every bit as dramatic as it started thanks to Hurricane Kay.

The Hurricane making its way up the coast of Baja California is expected to bring thunderstorms and a chance of rain Friday through Monday along with a significant drop in temperatures, according to the National Weather Service. Despite the cloud cover and chance of rain, Friday is expected to be hot as well as muggy. The week-long excessive heat warning will remain in place through Friday. A cool-down won't start until the weekend, according to the National Weather Service.

Encino-Tarzana is expected to have a high of 100 degrees Friday and a chance of rain before cooling down to 84 degrees by Saturday, according to Accuweather. The chance of rain is highest Saturday and Sunday.

The weather service is predicting a 30 percent chance of lightning, thunder and showers, starting Friday, increasing to a 60 percent chance of rain by Saturday in Los Angeles County. With the unsettled weather, temperatures are expected to drop by more than 20 degrees across parts of the region.

The actual impact of the storm is still a little uncertain because it's unclear how much Kay will weaken as it moves north. But National Weather Service forecasters said the storm will bring clouds and chances of showers and thunderstorms in some areas.

The latest models predict the storm system may not move as far north as earlier predicted, but forecasters said Los Angeles County is still likely to see some rain.

The impact of Kay could be felt locally as early as Friday, according to the NWS, which noted that the storm will begin to push some cloud cover across the region. Absent those clouds, Friday was predicted to be the hottest of the next three days, "and it still might be even with the cloud cover," according to the NWS.

Excessive heat warnings will be in place in most of the Southland through Friday, with some possibly extending into Saturday morning, forecasters said.

Saturday is expected to start off warm, but depending on Kay's advance, temperatures should "level off quickly and possibly cool some during the day as showers develop," according to the NWS.

The amount of rain that will fall remains a mystery, but the NWS predicted "measurable precipitation" in the area.

"Widespread light to moderate rain is likely Saturday and maybe Sunday, mainly over Los Angeles and Ventura counties," forecasters said. "Isolated thunderstorms are also expected, especially in the mountains, which could produce heavy rain and flash flooding."
