Andy Cohen tells Brynn Whitfield that Mauricio Umansky is ‘available’
Andy Cohen informed the flirtatious star of “Real Housewives of New York City,” Brynn Whitfield, that Mauricio Umansky, Kyle Richards’ recently estranged husband, is single and available.
While on the red carpet at the “RHONY” premiere party, a reporter from Marie Claire asked Cohen which “Househusband” he thinks is the hottest. After hesitating for a moment, he turned to Whitfield, who was being interviewed nearby, to get her opinion.
Whitfield, who refers to herself as a “trophy wife in training,” responded with a smile, saying, “Mauricio!” This prompted Cohen to cheerfully shout back, “He’s available!”
When asked if he agrees with Whitfield’s choice, Cohen admitted, “He’s pretty handsome.”
One TikTok user quickly called Cohen “forever messy as hell,” while another commented, “Omg don’t let Kyle see this one ooop.”
Earlier this month, TheFantasyTimes confirmed that Umansky and his wife, Kyle Richards from “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” have separated after 27 years of marriage.
A source told People that the couple has been separated for a while but remains amicable and still live together under the same roof.
The couple, who got married in January 1996, released a joint statement denying divorce rumors. They admitted to having a challenging year but emphasized their love and respect for each other.

Cohen, 54, and Umansky, 53, also stated that there was no wrongdoing on either of their parts and asked their followers not to create false stories.
Despite fans speculating that Richards’ close friendship with country singer Morgan Wade contributed to their marital issues, Richards has denied any romantic involvement with Wade.
However, Richards recently told a paparazzo that she is “not single,” and Umansky is still wearing his wedding ring. They have been spending a lot of time together and engaging in playful banter on Instagram.
During the “RHONY” premiere party, Cohen revealed to TheFantasyTimes that viewers will see signs of trouble in Richards and Umansky’s relationship when “RHOBH” Season 13 airs in the fall.
“I think when you watch the new season of ‘Beverly Hills,’ you’ll be less surprised [by Richards and Umansky’s split],” he teased, although he admitted he was very taken aback when the news broke.
