Mauricio Umansky was reportedly caught getting “very close” to a mystery blonde in Austin, Texas, over the weekend.
Months into his separation from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards, 54, Mauricio, 53, who was previously linked to his Dancing With the Stars partner, Emma Slater, 34, was said to be “all over” the unnamed woman as an insider suggested he’s grown tired of the “endless drama” of his marriage.
“His relationship with Kyle was incredible, they have their kids, their wonderful memories, and now it is misery,” an insider told Daily Mail on November 10. “He has a choice to stay in that misery or try to move away from it. He is choosing to move away from it, that is why he didn’t attend BravoCon, it is just endless drama that he doesn’t need.”
As RHOBH fans well know, Kyle has been linked to country singer Morgan Wade, 28, since earlier this year and has continued to fuel those reports with regular outings, including a “cozy” sighting in Paris.
“Mauricio was dreading this past weekend. BravoCon was going to be his kryptonite as he expected all sorts of fallout from it. To deal with a separation is one thing but to deal with that in the public eye is miserable,” the source continued.
Although Kyle did break down over her marriage, and accidentally claimed she and Mauricio were in the midst of a “divorce” at the event, the insider claimed “it wasn’t as bad” as Mauricio expected.
“Kyle cried and there have been tears throughout this process as it has been very sad, but Mauricio is at a point where he has to say to himself, what else can he do,” they noted. “Mauricio truly believes in the reality show relationship curse, it sucks that he is now part of it but to rise above it is his only option. He is hoping they can deal with it behind closed doors in the foreseeable future, even though that will be impossible.”
As he and Kyle continue to insist they are working on mending their marriage, another report has suggested that Mauricio was seen flirting with another woman at Soho House Austin in Texas on Saturday.
“He was all over her,” an insider told Us Weekly on November 13. “There was no kissing, but they were getting very close.”
According to the report, Mauricio and the woman sat beside one another in a group.
“He was flirting with her and holding her hand at one point,” an eyewitness revealed. “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.”
Meanwhile, Kyle continued to spend time with her rumored love interest Morgan as the two ladies were photographed together in Los Angeles on November 13. According to Page Six, Kyle and the 28-year-old country singer stopped by a frozen yogurt shop.
Kyle was also photographed again with Morgan on Tuesday, November 14, as the two took a relaxed stroll together in Los Angeles. Kyle could be seen sporting brown leggings and a sweatshirt while Morgan rocked a designer Givenchy sweatshirt in photos obtained by the Dailymail.
