"We were together," Samantha said during the interview. "I blame him. He was the married man. He chose to lie and cheat. Of course, I’m not happy with Raquel, but no, it’s his fault all this happened! It’s very traumatic for me. We had an amazing marriage and were best friends. He was a great stepdad and dad. Everything changed when he was so desperate for the camera and fame. He truly will do anything. It’s scary and sad."

Oliver, meanwhile, said that Samantha was lying and that the two were already separated when the kiss occurred.

"I had my own place, and I'm trying to get divorced ASAP. The only thing that matters to me is taking care of my son. Everything else is irrelevant," he said in a statement to Entertainment Tonight.

Samantha filed for divorce from Oliver in January 2023.

Samantha apparently filed for divorce in January of this year and also added that Raquel told her she had no idea that Oliver was still married.

"Raquel said she confronted him at the date that was filmed, but I can’t trust either one so I don’t truly know what was said on that date after everything came out," Samantha explained.

"Raquel called me. We talked on the phone the day that I aired all his stuff out," she added. "I did not want him to write a false narrative of what happened. I was told to say nothing because we want to protect his reputation, but how is that fair!? He wrecked a whole family! My kids were devastated."

Samantha added that the couple had no plans for a divorce until she discovered this kiss, and other alleged affairs that he was involved in.

"We had no plans of divorce until I found out what he did at the beginning of September. I also found tons of other women he was cheating on me within his direct messages," she claimed. "Yes, he wants to be on any show. My understanding is he was telling Lisa Vanderpump we separated so he told the girls and thought he should go out with them when they came to town. I then had a gut feeling something was off when he posted the picture with the girls."
