Kyle Richards Deletes Support for Mauricio Umansky
Rumors have been swirling since earlier this year that Umansky and Richards were separating after 27 years of marriage. Last month, Umansky confirmed that they were “currently separated” but “not talking about divorce.”
Recently, Umansky has been rumored to be getting romantic with his DWTS partner Emma Slater. One source claimed to see them getting “very flirtatious” in Aspen. They were also recently photographed holding hands on their way out of a restaurant, and one source claims they were kissing.
Despite their apparent separation, Richards was still showing her support for Umansky on social media. According to Page Six, the Real Housewives star posted a promotional photo of Umansky and Slater on Instagram last month. She encouraged fans to vote for them.
However, the post has since been deleted. According to TMZ, this was in response to the reports about Umansky and Slater. A source called their alleged PDA “super disrespectful” to Richards.
Umansky Dedicated This Week’s Dance to Richards
This week’s DWTS theme was “Most Memorable Year,” as the celebrities performed routines inspired by a significant time in their life. Umansky’s most memorable year was 1996, when he and Richards were newly married with two daughters.
“I was 26 when I was fired from my job and was broke,” Umansky wrote on Instagram. “Kyle was my rock and together we rose up and we rose up 1000 x and we moved mountains a lot of them. It’s been an incredible journey.”
Umansky included several old family photos in the post, as well as a few shots of him and Slater rehearsing their Contemporary routine to “Rise Up” by Andra Day. He finished the caption by writing that the dance was dedicated to Richards and his family.
During Tuesday night’s show, Umansky and Slater earned a combined score of 24 for their dance. They were announced as safe after the viewers at home voted.
