Andy Cohen tells flirtatious ‘RHONY’ star Brynn Whitfield that Mauricio Umansky is ‘available’

Andy Cohen informed flirty “Real Housewives of New York City” star Brynn Whitfield that Kyle Richards’ recently separated husband Mauricio Umansky is on the market.

While on the red carpet at the “RHONY” premiere party last week, a Marie Claire reporter asked the Bravo honcho who he rates as the sexiest “house husband.”

Letting out a prolonged “ummm”, he then turned to Whitfield, who was doing his own interview a few feet away, to get his opinion.

Mauricio! the self-proclaimed “trophy wife-in-training” said with a laugh, prompting Cohen, 55, to gleefully yell, “She’s available!”

When the TV executive was asked by a Marie Claire reporter if he agreed with the selection of the 36-year-old brunette bombshell, he admitted: “He’s quite handsome.”

One TikTok user was quick to call Cohen “always messy as hell,” while another added, “OMG don’t let Kyle see this ooop.”

Earlier this month, Page Six confirmed that Umansky and his “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star wife had put their 27-year marriage on hold.

A source told People that the longtime couple had been “separated for a while,” but noted that they “remain friendly” and even still live “under the same roof.”

Earlier this month, Page Six confirmed that Umansky and Kyle Richards had split.

The duo, who married in January 1996, issued a joint statement insisting that “any statement about [them] divorce are false.

“However, yes, we have had a difficult year. The most challenging of our marriage,” they admitted. “But we both love and respect each other tremendously.”

The Bravolebrity, 54, and the real estate broker, 53, went on to say that “no one has done anything wrong” and asked their followers “not to create false stories to fit into a more obscene narrative.”

Despite fan suspicions that Richards’ extremely close friendship with country singer Morgan Wade may have contributed to their marital problems, the mother-of-four has denied any speculation that the two are dating.

However, the actress recently told an inquisitive paparazzi that she is “not single” and that the agency founder still wears his wedding ring.

But during the “RHONY” premiere party, Cohen told Page Six that viewers will be spotting signs of trouble in paradise when “RHOBH” season 13 premieres in the fall.

“I think when you see the new season of ‘Beverly Hills,’ you’ll be less surprised. [by Richards and Umansky’s split]he joked, though he admitted he was “very” taken aback when the news broke.
