The actress, who works for the luxury real estate broker’s firm, The Agency, is actually his father Eduardo’s girlfriend, according to TMZ.
Last week, rumors began swirling that Mauricio, 53, was romantically pursuing Bega, 56, after the duo was snapped having dinner with his parents, Eduardo and Dr. Estella Sneider, who are divorced.
In the photo — which was taken Tuesday night at Il Pastaio in Beverly Hills, Calif., after “Dancing With the Stars” — Bega could be seen sitting next to the Season 32 competitor with her arm draped around his neck.
Eduardo and Sneider sat opposite of the pair as everyone smiled for the camera.
“We had a delicious dinner and a great, enjoyable conversation,” Sneider captioned the picture in part, which she posted to Instagram Friday.
“It was a wonderful treat to continue celebrating Mauricio.”
According to TMZ, Bega had attended the live taping of the ABC ballroom dance competition as Eduardo’s date.
fans immediately began to think that the two were seeing each other because the “Buying Beverly Hills” star had just confirmation from his longtime wife, Kyle Richards.
“Kyle and I are human beings, OK? We have emotions, we have feelings, we’re going through a really hard time, OK?” Mauricio told an inquiring paparazzo late last month, insisting that “divorce is not part of [their] conversation right now.”
“We’ve had 26 amazing years,” he went on, emphasizing that although the past year has been “really tough,” he and the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star are “not ready to throw in the towel yet.”
Umansky added that he and Richards, 54, are “trying to deal” with their issues “internally” and “privately.”
Moreover, he doesn’t believe the Bravolebrity has been unfaithful to him despite the critics with her suspiciously close friend, country singer Morgan Wade.
“There is no doubt in my mind that Kyle has not slept or cheated with Morgan Wade,” he said. “They are really great friends. They are filming stuff together; they’re doing stuff together. They are not in a relationship.”
