Morgan Wade recently opened up about her friendship — emphasis on friendship — with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards and put the ongoing dating rumors to rest.
The country singer revealed to People that she had never heard of Richards before the reality TV star posted one of her songs to her Instagram Story in 2021.
“The only reality television I watched was 90 Day Fiancé and I had to stop watching because it put me in such a bad mood because I get so irritated at these people,
” she told the publication. “But I had never watched the Real Housewives at all.”
She noted that her friends tipped her off the Richards’ post, so Wade sent her a message to thank her, ultimately leading to an unlikely friendship.
As for the dating rumors that sparked amid Richards’ separation from husband Mauricio Umansky? “We’re friends,” Wade said. “The Internet’s a dumb place.”
Richards has also been supportive of Wade as she prepares to undergo a double mastectomy as a preventative measure in November,
after she had been diagnosed with a mutation in the RAD51D gene. The topic hits close to home for Richards, whose mom died of breast cancer in 2002.
“She helped me connect with some really good surgeons,” Wade said. “We were talking about that and then she had the idea of us doing a documentary and following all this stuff,
so we’ve been out and about. She’s just really been there for me with all that.”
“It’s just been such a great friendship,” she continued. “I know that if Kyle vouches for you, you’re a good person.”
