Kyle Richards and Mauricio Umansky are said to be pressing one another’s buttons amid their separation.

Although the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars spent the Christmas and New Year’s holidays in Aspen, Colorado as a family with their children, including Farrah Aldjufrie, 35, Alexia Umansky, 27, Sophia Umansky, 23, and Portia Umansky, 15, an insider has claimed that things have grown contentious between Kyle, 54, and Mauricio, 53, especially after Mauricio enjoyed outings with influencer Alexandria Wolfe, 31, YouTuber Lele Pons, 27, and singer Anitta, 30.

“Kyle and Mauricio are allowing each other to do what they want, provided they don’t do anything embarrassing,” an insider told Star magazine, via OK!. “Mauricio has clearly touched a nerve.”

“There’s no denying they push each other’s buttons,” the source continued. “But they’re going to continue to look the other way — or try to.”

Just last month, Kyle opened up about the challenges she’s faced since splitting from Mauricio.

“I feel happy, but I’m also still struggling because it’s all new to me. I’ve been married my whole life,” she explained to Us Weekly. “We still live in the same house and we spent [the holidays] together. I have no idea how long we’ll be like that, but we are trying to be as normal as possible in a very un-normal situation.”

“We love each other. We go to therapy. We both want to see each other happy. I don’t know what the future looks like,” she added. “That’s the hardest part because the unknown is scary.”

As Kyle and Mauricio remain separated, Kyle has stayed close to Morgan Wade, 29, most recently enjoying a lunch date in Los Angeles with the country singer and her sister, Kathy Hilton, 64.

In photos shared by Page Six on January 5, Kyle and Morgan were seen in matching cowboy hats and jeans as they met with Kathy at La Scala Italian restaurant.

As Kyle sported a black hat, a brown jacket and a matching purse, and black platform shoes, Morgan wore a gray hat, a black jacket, and a Louis Vuitton sneakers.

Kyle’s outing with Morgan comes just days after she was seen admitting to Dorit Kemsley, 47, and Crystal Kung-Minkoff, 40, that she wouldn’t rule out a future romance with another woman.

After Kyle asked her castmates if they “would ever date a woman,” Crystal turned to Kyle and asked, “Would you?”

“Yeah,” she confirmed.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 13 airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on Bravo.
