Kyle's confessional came as Morgan was rehearsing for her performance on stage. A mesmerized Kyle watched and explained in a confessional, "Initially, I was drawn to Morgan by her music. Morgan's lyrics really spoke to me because she was just so raw and open and honest and just putting it all out there. And I admire that in someone, especially someone who has struggled with that myself. I appreciate that quality in someone."

The two, as RHOBH fans are surely aware, have since become close friends. In fact, as Kyle revealed on the January 10 episode, "There are people that I speak to every single day no matter what. Teddi [Mellencamp] and Morgan are two of those people."

As for what the subject of those conversations, Kyle added, "Everything in our life is discussed — friends, husbands, siblings, work, complaints, celebrations, everything."

Dorit Kemsley, who has been critical of Kyle and Morgan's friendship in the past, also weighed in on their bond during the RHOBH episode. 

"I met Morgan about two years ago. It was before Kyle and Morgan really got super close," she recalled in a confessional. "We were all in London and we were having dinner for Mauricio [Umansky]'s birthday. Morgan stuck out like a sore thumb. You didn't really understand the connection, but [she was] very nice."

"Come to think of it," Dorit added, "the dinner that we had in London with Kyle and Mo was really one of the last times that we were together with Kyle and Mo as a couple."
