Was Kyle Richards cheating with country star Morgan Wade?

Right around the Fourth of July holiday, news came out that Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards was splitting from her husband of 27 years, Mauricio Umansky. The timing seemed right for a potentially scandalous split announcement, almost as if they were trying to bury it. Then the couple denied that they’re divorcing, but admitted that they’re having a “tough year.” As all this was happening, Internet detectives got to work compiling evidence of Kyle’s potential affair with Morgan Wade, a female country star that I’ve never heard of until now. Hm.

Morgan Wade’s ex-girlfriend Kady Cannon appears to be wishing her ex well as fans continue to question the country singer’s relationship with Kyle Richards.

“Only wish well for others, especially anyone you’ve ever shared your heart with,” Cannon wrote in a TikTok selfie video Tuesday.

“what you put out comes back to you ten fold [sic].”

The “Temptation Island” alum, 30, added in the caption, “get your happiness girl. you deserve it.”

While Cannon didn’t specify whether the cryptic post was about Wade, 28, she has seemingly alluded to their relationship on social media in the past.

Wade’s rep did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment.

Cannon’s clues may sound familiar to fans who have speculated that Wade and Richards also have matching heart tattoos and rings.

The two have sparked romance rumors amid the news that the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star has separated from her longtime husband, Mauricio Umansky.

When asked about the significance of the ink during the Season 12 “RHOBH” reunion, Richards vaguely said, “This heart is a heart and it means something to me.”

Internet sleuths have also spotted the reality TV star sporting a silver ring — similar to one that Wade wears — after being seen without her massive wedding ring from Umansky.

Neither Wade nor Richards have publicly addressed the rumors, but the “RHOBH” star and her estranged husband have said there has been no “wrongdoing” on either side.

“There has been no wrongdoing on anyone’s part,” Richards and Umansky wrote in a joint statement Tuesday.

The pair also said that any claims about them divorcing are “untrue.”

“Yes, we have had a rough year. The most challenging one of our marriage,” they added. “But we both love and respect each other tremendously.”

Umansky, 53, appeared to stand by that statement as he posted several photos from his Fourth of July celebrations with Richards in Aspen, Colo.

The real estate broker was also wearing his wedding band in all of them.

I’ve got to admit, the evidence is pretty compelling, especially when you watch it in Instagram story form with dates and photos lined up. Kyle and Morgan have been friends at least, or in each other’s orbit for quite a while. In addition to the matching tattoos and rings, fans pointed out that Kyle stopped drinking last summer and Morgan is famously sober. Fans also noted the change in Kyle’s look and fashion — she’s been denying for months that she’s on ozempic and maybe she’s really not and it’s just sobriety plus the thrill of a new relationship. Anyway, it’s interesting that there are plausible affair rumors, a source talking about a divorce, and then denials. It seems like someone — not Kyle — leaked the divorce news, perhaps to test the waters or force her hand in some way? And that odd denial makes it sound like Kyle and Mauricio are not officially divorcing, but are maybe going to stay married and live somewhat separate lives. Not that separate, because they still spend time together, but maybe just separate romantically.

    Now THISis juicy gossip and I’m here for it. Morgan is 🔥.

  2. Queenie says:

    Given the timing, how soon RHOBH will start, I’m super skeptical. Maybe Kyle wanted her own Scandoval. She’s a legacy housewife, been on since the dawn of time, because she loooves all of it.

    • shanaynay says:

      It’s probably nonsense and just a way to give Kyle a really good and interesting story line. Personally, when I watched the show I always thought to myself why is she even on this show? She’s so boring and doesn’t bring anything to the show. It’s time for her to beat it. : – )

  3. Ameerah M says:

    I don’t know…this sounds like a RHOBH storyline more than anything else.

  4. Cosmic Cow says:

    I smell a storyline.

    Maybe they are lovers, but maybe they’re close friends. I have been ride or die for my BF until she sadly passed. I loved her dearly and we had so much fun.

  5. Smile says:

    Morgan is fire

    It’s been going on for a while between Kyle and Morgan if you see those Insta/TikToks deep dives into their social media. It’s hard to say how this is going to play out; all we know for sure is someone leaked to People mag and they felt confident enough to print it. All those photos of Kyle and Mauricio over the Fourth in Colorado right when the news broke seemed staged to me, especially the one where they were seen dining together under a skylight where someone just happened to stop and get a perfectly centered and focused pic of them from above.

    I love Morgan Wade, but I do not love this for her. (Good gossip, though!)

  8. Torttu says:

    Kyle is so very annoying. I don’t care is she’s having an affair, or if Mauricio is having a thousand affairs. I’m more interested in hearing what exactly happened with Kim’s share of a house that was sold, and what was the shady deal of Mauricio’s company selling a dictator’s son’s mansion but Mauricio somehow buying it himself really cheaply? Also, buying back heirloom jewelry that was stolen? How does that work? Everything with Kyle is vague and shady, like a cotton candy facade.

    • babyswans says:

      The Kim house thing has been explained. Kim needed a loan and offered up her house to them as collateral. She missed several payments on her loan and the house was taken.

  9. Twin Falls says:

    Kyle’s skin looks amazing.

    I’m here for the trash-tasticnenss of it all.
    This story has it all (including a loose connection to Temptation Island!) and I can’t wait to see what else is coming down the pipeline lol
