Dynamic duo: Kyle Richards and rumored lover Morgan Wade stepped out for a relaxed stroll in LA on Tuesday
Moving on? The outing came as Kyle’s estranged husband Mauricio Umansky was seen ‘getting very close’ to a mystery blonde while out of town for the weekend; the former couple are seen in Santa Monica in November 2019
Despite denying an affair, Kyle and Morgan have been romantically-linked since the reality star announced her separation after 27 years together back in July.
Those dating rumors hit an all-time high back in August after Kyle joined Morgan in her music video for her single Fall In Love With Me that month, which featured the two women pining for each other and climaxed with a passionate kiss between the two.
However, the musician previously admitted that she and Kyle were just trying to ‘troll the trolls‘ with the video.
Morgan reiterated that she had never even heard of Kyle until two years ago, when the reality star was hipped to her music.
Mauricio seems to be jumping back in the dating pool, however, as according to an UsWeekly report on Tuesday, the reality star was flirting with a mystery blonde at Soho House Austin in Texas on Saturday.
An insider told the publication: ‘He was all over her. There was no kissing, but they were getting very close.’
The publication claims that Mauricio and the unnamed woman sat next to each other as they were part of a large group.
The source told UsWeekly: ‘He was flirting with her and holding her hand at one point. They were whispering to each other. He had his arm behind her.

‘They were definitely having fun together, and she was into it. They left together with the group.’
Mauricio was recently on Dancing With The Stars and even had tongues wagging as he and pro partner Emma Slater were pictured holding hands last month.
Days later he and the 34-year-old dancer were forced to deny those dating rumors on her Instagram Story.
Mauricio said: ‘For full clarity, we are not dating. We are really good friends, we’ve been dancing together now for six weeks, four hours a day, every single day.’
‘Guys, it’s intense,’ Emma added. ‘Like you really form a very, very special bond and I think we have similar personalities, so we’ve got a super supportive – last week was extremely emotional – so super supportive relationship, we definitely there for each other. It’s beautiful, that’s a great thing!’
Mauricio insisted the whole thing was overblown as he explained what had transpired: ‘We’re really good friends, and just to clarify we went to a restaurant to go get some sushi right after rehearsal, we were in our rehearsal clothes. Lots of the stories are wrong, lots of them.
‘We are not dating’: After they were spotted holding hands following dinner in Beverly Hills last month, Mauricio and his Dancing With The Stars pro partner Emma Slater, 34, have insisted they are merely good friends
Yes, it’s a very intense week, a very emotional week, we were talking about the week during dinner, and when we came out of dinner, we were recapping and I reached out to grab Emma’s hand and she grabbed my hand, and then we walked to the cars, you know just recapping and summarizing, and then the paparazzi caught that moment and it’s become a blown out moment,’ he continued.
‘And then all of the sudden we’re dating,’ Emma joked.
If a divorce were to proceed, it could get messy, as it’s been reported that the couple have no prenup in place.
Although the duo might not be gearing up for a battle at this moment, Kyle, 54, recently referenced the split as a ‘divorce’ rather than a ‘separation’ during BravoCon just a few days ago.
‘I’ve gone through a lot this last year that does change you. Losing my best friend to suicide changed me. Going through my divorce, all that has made me stronger but it definitely changes you as a person. I feel good,’ she said at BravoCon according to TooFab.
Moments later, Kyle was brought to tears while discussing the split, as the star had to pause for a moment to collect her thoughts and wipe her eyes.

Separate counseling: The estranged duo are seeking individual therapy during the difficult period, but are not engaging in any form of ‘marriage counseling or couple’s therapy,’ according to TMZ; Kyle seen at BravoCon 2023
‘We love each other very much and we are family no matter what happens,’ she said, according to the outlet. ‘We’re trying to figure it out. We know we love each other.
Her voice cracked and the crowd began to chant her name, as she continued: ‘I just want to say, a lot of people think, “What are you doing? Fix everything.” Obviously, that’s what I would want. This is not my idea of my fairy tale, clearly.’
When asked if there’s ‘any chance for reconciliation’ between her and Umansky, 53, the Halloween star said she’s taking it ‘a day at a time.’
‘I’m grateful that we get along so well and love each other very much and we’re putting our family first,’ Kyle said. ‘We’re still living together under the same roof and I’m proud of the way that we are navigating through this. I just take it a day at a time.’
