Kathy Hilton says she sensed Kyle Richards was thinking about split from husband in dramatic Real Housewives reunion

Kathy Hilton says she sensed Kyle Richards was thinking about split from husband in dramatic Real Housewives reunion

The star dropped the bombshell claim on the reunion show

All eyes have been on Real Housewives star Kyle Richards since she shocked the world by calling time on her 28-year marriage to husband Mauricio Umansky last year.

The Hollywood duo announced their split in July 2023 following just shy of three decades together, with a source close to the family later telling People Magazine that they'd been 'separated for a while'.

"[They] are still living under the same roof," they claimed at the time. "They remain amicable as they figure out what’s next for them and their family."

Since then, US reality star and mother-of-four Kyle has been spotted cosying up to a certain musician - none other than 'Wilder Days' hitmaker, Morgan Wade - with speculation circulating as to whether the pair have already embarked on a romance or whether they're just mates.

An even bigger plot twist to this juicy love story, however, is that this week, one of 55-year-old Kyle's sisters and her Real Housewives co-star has explosively claimed she had an inkling that the former couple would split last year.

In fact, the 66-year-old socialite insists she saw their bombshell split coming long before they made the news public.

Speaking on the eagerly-anticipated reunion show - which aired last night - Kathy Hilton described her little sister as 'not a compulsive person', adding that Richards' sisters don't 'just jump in and make a decision'.

"Kyle didn't decide this in three months," she went on. "I bet she had been thinking [about this] for the last three or four years. I shouldn't say that, but I did."

Earlier this month, Kyle confirmed she and her ex are still living together, despite being separated.

"The current status is we live under the same roof. It feels so funny to talk about this," she told press. "We live under the same roof in different rooms. We are fortunate enough that we have other homes.

"He comes and goes, and when we are all there, it's sort of like... if he is there for dinner, great!"

As mentioned, however, since the split, Kyle has been spending lots of time with singer Morgan Wade.

Just yesterday, she revealed a brand new piece of body art on social media, which some followers have interpreted as a tribute to the country star.

The widely-adored socialite debuted her new tattoo on Instagram in a reel, showing that Los Angeles artist Amanda Merkatz had drawn the outline of a cowboy hat on her arm.

Though the on-screen star hasn't yet addressed the meaning behind her latest tattoo addition, fans have been left wondering whether it could be a subtle shout-out to musician Morgan.

Tyla contacted Kyle and Morgan for comment.
