Did Mauricio cheat on Kyle?

Despite what fans might think, Kyle admitted during a Season 13 episode of RHOBH that Mauricio didn't cheat on her.

It appears Kyle has grown tired of the he-say-she-say regarding her marriage, and decided to use the RHOBH Season 13 finale to address the cheating rumors.

"There's literally nothing to do with anybody else," Kyle told Erika Jayne when asked about her husband's cheating allegations. She continued, "This is really just about Mau and me. It's not about our family. It's not about external family. It's not about another person on his side or my side. This is just about Mau and me."

Mauricio has faced cheating allegations in the past.

Mauricio has faced cheating allegations several times over the past decade or so. He and Kyle tied the knot on Jan. 20, 1996. A crucial part of RHOBH, the couple made their first appearance in the Season 1 premiere.

But, as with any reality star, the sudden influx of publicity didn't come without its challenges. Fans have long suspected that Mauricio has pursued extra-marital affairs in the past.

In 2013, a person claimed that Mauricio told them while spending some downtime at Los Angeles's Wilshire Hotel that he "strays once in a while," per Hollywood Life. At the time, several people came to Mauricio's defense, emphasizing that the allegations were false.

Mauricio seemingly addressed the rumors as well, telling The Christian Post that he was "faithfully and happily committed."

Similar allegations have emerged several times since then. Mauricio's Instagram DMs, which are apparently overflowing with raunchy material, have become the topic of heated discussions as well.

Mauricio, who is an impeccably successful real estate agent, has sold uber-notable properties like the Playboy Mansion. As the founder and CEO of The Agency, he has pledged to redefine the world of real estate. But, real estate isn't his only gig: he's also a media personality, having made several appearances on RHOBH, Today, and others.

Mauricio and Kyle share three daughters — Alexia, Sophia, and Portia.

Before meeting Mauricio, Kyle was married to Guraish Aldjufrie, an Indonesia-born real estate mogul. They tied the knot in 1988 and welcomed their first and only daughter, Farrah Aldjufrie, the same year.
