Mauricio Umansky And Emma Slater Reveal Why They Addressed Dating Rumors

Mauricio Umansky and Emma Slater may have gotten eliminated from “Dancing with the Stars,” but the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star tells Access Hollywood he’s gained a lot from the experience. “I have gained memories that will last me forever. I’ve gained an experience of dancing and learning how to dance. I’ve gained a new friend. I’ve gained the knowledge that I can conquer something that is super uncomfortable to me,” he told Access. The two also revealed why they decided to shut down rumors that they were dating. “We don’t need to have stories out there,” Mauricio said. “We didn’t think it needed to be addressed and then when we realized, oh people are like saying all this stuff and we realized it’s probably valuable for us, as it’s about us, to add our narrative you know, and people don’t get that,” Emma said. “Dancing with the Stars” airs Tuesday nights at 8 PM on ABC.
