Reality TV star Mauricio Umansky has denied reports of a cheating scandal stemming from explosive claims made by a Hollywood actress and glamour model.
Tess Broussard of Comedy Central's "Kroll Show" revealed Tuesday that Umansky allegedly admitted to being unfaithful in his 17-year marriage to "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Kyle Richards.
Broussard claims that she and a friend were once approached by Umansky, 42, at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel bar. The trio allegedly engaged in a conversation during which the father of four was forward and made a startling confession.
"I'm married, but I stray once in a while," Umansky allegedly told the women, as reported by Star magazine.
A representative for Umansky has denied Broussard's claims, insisting that the Beverly Hills based broker was simply being "friendly."
"[Mauricio's] networking and being friendly and pleasant, and this is construed as flirting. He is a good looking guy," Umansky's rep explained.
A separate source, however, claims that the real estate broker has a history of infidelity which Richards is allegedly oblivious to.
"There are tons of stories circulating about his extra-marital activities it is common knowledge in their social circles," the source told Star.
"The only person who doesn't know is Kyle, she is so proud of her sexy husband, but if she ever found out about his flings, it would destroy her," the source continued.
The couple, who wed in 1996, recently appeared on ABC's "Good Morning America" in which they insisted they have a happy marriage and family life.
In a separate interview with People magazine, Umansky opened up about how he and Richards, 44, maintain a happy and healthy marriage.
"We're the same, with or without cameras. We're just super real and we know each other and we're real," Umansky told People.
"We don't have any secrets to hide. That's one thing we talked about, the skeletons in the closet, and we can handle our worst skeletons," he continued.
