Kyle Richards responded to rumors of a romance with Morgan Wade during a girls’ night out with Teddi Mellencamp on Friday night.

One week after she and Mauricio Umansky reacted to rumors of separation by clarifying that they were not getting divorced, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, who has been linked to Morgan for weeks, stepped out with Teddi and answered questions about recent reports.

In photos shared by Page Six on July 9, Kyle and Teddi were seen exiting Craig’s restaurant in West Hollywood, which is located just steps away from Lisa Vanderpump‘s SUR, with a few other friends.

As they left the venue and got into Kyle’s car, Kyle was photographed in a low-cut denim blazer with matching denim jeans and black boots as Teddi wore a bright yellow blazer, jeans, and white heels.

As RHOBH fans have surely heard, an insider told PEOPLE last week that Kyle and Mauricio had “been separated for a while now [while] living under the same roof” before the couple denied any wrongdoing “on anyone’s part,” and they advised fans to “not create false stories to fit a further salacious narrative.”

Meanwhile, on her and Tamra Judge‘s podcast, Two T’s in a Pod, Teddi, who frequently weighs in on the personal lives of her fellow Real Housewives, has refused to speak on the matter.

“We have one more ‘Housewives’ headline you guys, I’m sure, are expecting me to cover,” she said on Friday’s episode. “I just wanted to say that we came up with the decision — myself, [co-host] Tamra Judge, iHeart, my producers — that everybody has their boundaries, and this is mine.”

“Kyle and Mauricio and their kids are like my family. I love them so much. I understand exactly what my job is here on this podcast and it’s to go down all the rabbit holes. And I think 99 percent of the time, that’s quite easy for me because it’s people I don’t know,” she added.

As for Morgan, she has remained tight-lipped, which one photographer brought up to Kyle on her and Teddi’s night out.

“We are very good friends,” Kyle stated, confirming the suggestion that they are more than that is “just a rumor.”

Then, after ignoring another photographer who wanted to know if she and Morgan are “friends with benefits,” Kyle shared that she has matching tattoos with a number of her friends, including Teddi.

“[Teddi and I] have matching tattoos, too, she’s not the only one I have matching tattoos with,” Kyle stated.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 13 is expected to premiere on Bravo sometime this fall.
