Billy Bush and 'Real Housewives' star Tinsley Mortimer spark romance rumors

Could we be seeing Billy Bush on Bravo sometime in the future?

According to a new Radar Online report, claiming that the former "Access Hollywood" host cozied up to "Real Housewives of New York City" star Tinsley Mortimer last weekend, that could certainly be the case.

The outlet claims that Mortimer and Bush were both at Brooklyn Bowl on Saturday, June 1, with a large group of friends, "but they looked particularly cozy and affectionate with each other."

"They were super flirty," a source addd.

The sighting, which onlookers said made it look like they "were on a first date," followed Mortimer's prolonged breakup from Coupon Cabin CEO Scott Kluth, who she was introduced to by former "RHONY" co-star, Carole Radziwill, two seasons ago.

"She looked really happy, which is so nice after all the drama she had with Scott on the show," the Radar source continued.

Though Mortimer's rep didn't confirm that anything romantic was going on between the socialite and the entertainment reporter, she did admit that "she was at Brooklyn Bowl on Saturday with a group of friends that included Billy."

Bush is also coming off of a big breakup: His wife, Sydney Davis, filed for divorce last summer after 20 years of marriage. They share daughters Josie, 19, Mary, 17, and Lillie, 14.

The encouraging update on Bush's love life comes as his career is on the upswing, as well. In May, it was announced that he would be returning to television this fall on new syndicated show, "Extra Extra," for which he'll serve as host.

The new gig comes over two years after Bush was fired from the "Today" show for his involvement in the infamous resurfaced "Access Hollywood" tape from 2005, during which he laughed at future president Donald Trump making vulgar comments about sexually assaulting women.
