On Wednesday night’s Watch What Happens Live, Kyle Richards (of Real Housewife of Beverly Hills fame) dropped by toonce again—deny those Morgan Wade rumors; provide an update on her rocky relationship with her sisters; and tease the upcoming season of the RHOBH. But as he often does, Andy Cohen had other ideas, and wanted to know where things stand when it comes to her separation from her longtime husband, Mauricio Umansky.

Cohen began by asking Richards who asked for the split: “It originated from me, I’ll say,” she sheepishly revealed. Then, Cohen asked what their living situation currently is. Apparently, the couple has taken a cue from Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix: “I let him stay in the primary bedroom because it’s very masculine,” Richards said, and she takes the upstairs floor. Nothing like shacking up with your estranged partner!!

Things really got interesting when Cohen asked what Richards thinks about Umansky’s closeness with his Dancing With the Stars partner, Emma Slater. Last weekend, the pair were photographed holding hands after having dinner together.

“I was taken aback,” Richards said. “Yes, that was very hard to see. It hurt my feelings.” Cohen continued to press, asking Richards whether or not she’s aware of any tongue tangoing between Umansky and Slater. “I don’t know if anything has happened yet, but obviously there’s something there,” she replied. It’s worth noting that in the wake of the photographs, Richards swiftly deleted a supportive post she put up after Umansky made his DWTS debut…

Frankly, a newly single middle-aged man hooking up with his dance partner wouldn’t be at all surprising—especially in the cliche competition that appears to be Richards’ and Umansky’s current state of affairs. She’s rumored to be hooking up with women and getting tattoos, so it was really only a matter of time before he linked up with a blonde who’s 20 years younger.
