Are Mauricio Umansky, Emma Slater Dating?
A fan on the DWTS Reddit recently posted a screenshot from the gossip account Deux Moi’s newsletter, claiming that Umansky “has been showing affection to his partner on and off the dance floor.” According to a source, he and Slater were seen together at The Sterling in Aspen.
The pair were allegedly “very flirtatious,” as they were seen “dancing, hugging, and [Umansky] nestling his face into her neck all night.” The source also claims that Umansky approached them to ask that they not take any photos or videos “given everything that is going on right now.”
Rumors have been swirling since earlier this year that Umansky and his wife Kyle Richards were separating after 27 years of marriage. Last month, Umansky said that they were “currently separated” but “not talking about divorce.” Richards is rumored to be dating country singer Morgan Wade.
Meanwhile, Slater has split from her husband, fellow pro dancer Sasha Farber. She filed for divorce earlier this year. The two dancers are both competing on Season 32, as Farber is partnered with Alyson Hannigan.
What Do Fans Think of the Rumored Romance?
Fans on Reddit seem to be split on whether or not there is any truth to the rumor that Umansky and Slater are getting romantic. Some users said they could see the chemistry and wouldn’t mind if the two got together.
Others think the report is blowing things out of proportion, pointing out that Slater has been the subject of dating rumors with her partners in the past. Just last season, host Alfonso Ribeiro asked her and her partner Trevor Donovan if their chemistry was real.
Slater and Umansky aren’t the only Season 32 pair rumored to be dating. Some fans think romance is brewing between Harry Jowsey and his partner Rylee Arnold.
