Mauricio Umansky and Emma Slater appeared to be getting close, suggesting that they may have taken their dancing relationship to the next level.
Dining at a Beverly Hills restaurant with Emma was the ‘Real Housewives’ personality, who is currently separated from his estranged wife, Kyle Richards. Mauricio is her celebrity partner on “Dancing With the Stars,” where they are currently sharing the spotlight.
If the photos of them are any indication, their relationship is growing outside of the ballroom. The ‘DWTS’ couple exuded a romantic atmosphere as they walked out of their dinner together, holding hands. Even though the pictures don’t show any other overt signs of public affection between them, this gesture says a lot on its own.
Mauricio and Emma are hanging out a lot lately
Just last week, Mauricio and Emma dressed up for Halloween, and they have been spending a lot of time together lately. It’s safe to assume that they have had a good relationship now for some time. TMZ’s insider sources claim that a sincere conversation they had over dinner was the reason behind their hand-holding.
They talked about the dance they would be performing for this week’s episode, which has as its central theme the “most important year of your life.” Mauricio explained to Emma why 1996 was a special year for him.
Insiders at TMZ claim that Mauricio opened up to Emma about many important 1996 events during their talk. 96′ was the year, he got married to Kyle, lost his job in the fashion industry, and started a real estate career. They felt closer than ever as a result, which probably explains why they looked so loving as they were leaving the restaurant.
Regarding whether their relationship is becoming romantic, the sources were unable to offer a firm response. Naturally, Mauricio and Kyle have been the subject of a lot of conjecture, especially in light of the scrutiny surrounding their marriage this year and Kyle’s friendship with Morgan Wade.
Kyle Richards and Mauricio Umansky’s relationship
Since “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” debuted on Bravo in 2010, fans have had the chance to watch the relationship between Mauricio Umansky and Kyle Richards.
As they raised their daughters, grew their businesses, and welcomed several furry friends into their home, they graciously allowed cameras to follow their journey. Then, in 2022, “Buying Beverly Hills,” Mauricio Umansky’s own reality series, debuted on Netflix.
Richards met the real estate mogul in 1994, and the two got married in 1996. Unfortunately, PEOPLE confirmed in July 2023 that the couple had parted ways. In response to the news, Richards and Umansky shared a statement on Instagram. “Reports about us divorcing are false,” they clarified, but they did concede that “it’s true that we’ve had a difficult year—possibly the most challenging one in our marriage.”
In an interview with Good Morning America, Umansky talked about how his family reacted to the news that he had been cast for “Dancing with the Stars.” Notably, despite their separation, he continued to address Richards as his “wife.” “They were all very excited,” he revealed. My spouse and daughters will be present to witness my dancing. Everyone is going to have a fantastic time.”
Following his performance on “Dancing with the Stars,” week three, Umansky revealed a few details about his friendship with Richards. “We’ve been married for 27 years,” he clarified. We’re going through a difficult time right now,” she continued, noting that although they are currently living apart, they are still committed to one another.
