Morgan Wade’s Ex Girlfriend Confirms Kyle Richards’ Lesbian Affair with Country Singer
Temptation Island star, Kady Cannon, the alleged ex of country music artist, Morgan Wade, weighed in on the singer’s relationship with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, Kyle Richards, during a recent appearance on the Behind the Velvet Rope podcast.
In July, news broke that Kyle Richards and her husband, Mauricio Umansky, had separated amid rumors that Kyle was romantically involved with the musician. Some fans have theorized that the entire narrative is nothing but an ongoing publicity stunt.
Kady shared how she first met Morgan, explaining — “Her music really spoke to me so I looked her up on Instagram and … I messaged her because she was coming to Dallas or coming to Fort Worth. I was like, oh my gosh, I am such a big fan. I see they’re coming, you know and I was really, like, just wanting to meet her in general, thinking, like, I don’t know, it was a long shot but I thought, hey, I’d reach out, and then that’s how we met.”
Kady went on to claim that Morgan later told her — “‘The only reason why I answered your DM is because you had a blue check mark and you had X amount of followers.’ And she thought I was hot … I’m sure she was half-joking, but I’m sure, you know, it’s [still] a half-joke, right?”
Kady said that the pair dated for a “rocky” eight months, and that while they kept their relationship private, it was not a secret.
Kady addressed what led to the couple’s breakup, explaining — “I was not getting what I needed out of that relationship. I had to make a really hard decision to put myself first, and to love myself and know that I was worth more than what I was being given. It was really hard … I thought I was going to marry this person.”
The reality star also revealed how Morgan first told her about Kyle Richards.
“She asked if I knew who she was,” Kady shared. “I told her I did. She was kind of tied in with, like, a little friend group that they had with Teddi [Mellencamp] and another lady. They had, like, a group chat with Wordle … That is kind of like how that friendship started based on what I know. Based on the information that I was told.”
She continued — “I also don’t know the full truth. I found out a lot of things after … Morgan and I broke up. So I don’t know, I’m not convinced that I was privy to the truth because there’s been a lot of information that I have found out after the fact. So, like I said, based on the information that I had, it was just a casual, like, Wordle group.”
Kady later shared that she was hurt to see Kyle and Morgan’s “matching” rings and tattoos, because they symbolized the duo’s close relationship. She also suggested that Kyle’s fame likely played a role in bringing the two together.
She said — “I mean, Kyle has a certain level of fame and notoriety and following, and to say that doesn’t play a part would be incorrect. So I think, in my mind, it made more sense for Morgan to bring Kyle to something like that rather than somebody like me.”
Kady clarified that she did not believe that Morgan and Kyle’s relationship was a “PR stunt.”
“They seem pretty genuine,” she said. “I don’t think that anything is for PR. That is a narrative that I’ve heard … [but] I think that their relationship is authentic. I do. That’s my opinion. I know Morgan. I know Morgan well. I don’t know Kyle at all, but based on me knowing Morgan, I would say that it’s authentic.”
Kyle and Morgan’s cryptic connection will be featured in the upcoming season of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, which premieres October 25, at 8 pm ET, on Bravo.
