Kyle Richards gets cowgirl hat tattoo amid rumored romance with country singer Morgan Wade


Kyle Richards, 55, debuted a brand new tattoo on Sunday in an Instagram Reel posted by artist Amanda Merkatz — and it could be a reference for her love of country couture.

In the quick clip shared by the pro, the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star can be seen holding out her arm to show off a dainty drawing of a wide-brim western hat.

While Richards did not clarify the significance of the design — which could simply be a tribute to her love of Aspen-based Western store Kemo Sabe and the bedazzled head toppers she buys there — though the new body art comes at a time when the mom of four continues to deny rumors of a romance with 29-year-old country singer Morgan Wade.

Earlier this year, the two celebrated the reality star’s birthday together with a trip to Mexico, and in February, Wade was seen caressing Richards at a taping for “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.”

They also taped a steamy music video together for the country star’s “Fall In Love With Me” single, which featured the pair feeding each other fruit, taking a bubble bath together and more.

The “Halloween” actress recently shut down a blind item posted by celebrity gossip account DeuxMoi, which hinted that the pair was “set to premiere their relationship in a very public way” by posing for “a highly coveted magazine cover” set to drop soon.

“That is not true. That blind item is not about me,” the “Halloween” actress responded during an Amazon Live stream. “Gotta be about somebody else! So, I wonder who it is. Now you have me curious.”

Still, the fashion accessory is far from the only tattoo that can be connected back to the signer.

Months after the mom of four showed off two new tats she had gotten on her wrists in 2022, fans connected the tiny heart back to Wade, who has a similar design on her hand.

During Season 13 of “RHOBH,” Richards was also seen tattooing the letter “K” on Wade’s left arm, and, in November of last year, Richards’ sister Kathy Hilton revealed that even she got inked with a four-leaf clover tattoo while hanging out with the duo.

While Richards is currently separated from her husband of 28 years, Mauricio Umansky, 53, the real estate broker has been vocal about his wishes for wife to stop getting permanent ink.

“No Bean, that’s enough,” he told her in an episode of “RHOBH,” after learning Richards had more tattoos than he was aware of, with no plans to stop. “Five tattoos is a lot. I will not allow that.”

“If I want one I’m going to get one,” Richards replied. “It’s my body … you don’t have a choice.”

Looks like nothing will stop Richards from doing her thing.
