Kyle Richards Responds To Mauricio Umansky Holding Hands With ‘DWTS’ Partner Amid Divorce

Kyle Richards is responding to rumors that her estranged husband (and alleged serial cheater) Mauricio Umansky may be hooking up with his Dancing With The Stars Partner Emma Slater.

Kyle Richards quietly deleted a supportive “Dancing With the Stars” post after her estranged husband, Mauricio Umansky – who’s competing on Season 32 with pro Emma Slater – was photographed holding hands with the blond beauty.

The post in question was a promo shot of Umansky and Slater, which Richards shared via Instagram last month.

”Tonight!! @dancingwiththestars premiers with @mumansky18 & @theemmaslater HOW TO VOTE YOU CAN VOTE UP TO 20 TIMES,” she captioned the post at the time.

However, after Umansky and Slater were caught getting flirty on a three-hour sushi date Sunday night, Page Six noticed that the upload vanished from the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star’s page.

As previously reported, Umansky, 53, and Slater, 34, grabbed a bite to eat at Matsuhisa in Beverly Hills, where a server said they exchanged kisses while seated at the bar inside.

Paparazzi then snapped the pair exiting the restaurant hand-in-hand. While lingering in the parking lot, the dancer-choreographer was seen wrapping her arm around the luxury real estate broker’s waist.

Though Richards, 54, was present to watch Umansky’s first dance with Slater, she has not been back to the Los Angeles ballroom since.

Tuesday night’s theme is “Most Memorable Year,” where the remaining celebrity contestants and their dance partners will perform a routine inspired by a pivotal year in their lives.

Ahead of the live show, Umansky announced that he was dedicating his performance to Richards, with whom he shares three daughters — Alexia, 27, Sophia, 23, and Portia, 15 — and a stepdaughter, Farrah Aldjufrie, 34.

“Tonight’s Dance on @dancingwiththestars is about life and how it’s not always perfect and when you think it’s impossible to move mountains and you’re at your lowest moment and you think all doors are closed you need to rise up and rise unafraid and move mountains,” the “Buying Beverly Hills” star wrote alongside a carousel showing throwback photos of the former couple as well as behind-the-scenes pictures from rehearsals with Slater.

“My time was 1996 when Kyle and I got married and Alexia was born, We had Farrah and Alexia. I was 26 when I was fired from my job and was broke,” Umansky continued.

“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. Tonight’s dance is dedicated to Kyle and my Family. Some #BTS.”

Though Page Six confirmed the duo’s separation in July, they did not cop to the split until recently.

For what it’s worth, my sources tell me that Emma and Mauricio have been a thing for about a month now. So much so that a photography organization has caught Emma arriving at his house during some pretty late nights.
