Is the cutest couple in "Real Housewives" history not all they're cracked up to be?

A new report claims that Kyle Richards' husband, Mauricio Umansky, has admitted to cheating on his wife of 17 years and the mother of his three daughters.

An actress named Tess Broussard tells Star magazine that the hunky real estate agent hit on her friend, a "busty escort" named Cristina Schultz, four years ago at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel. "Mauricio just beelined for us," says Broussard, who adds that he also told brunette Schultz that she resembled Richards. Broussard continues that Umansky, who was wearing his wedding ring, told Schultz, "I'm married, but I stray once in a while," and asked for her phone number.

This instance is just one of many, the magazine also reports. "There are tons of stories circulating about his extra-marital activities – it is common knowledge in their social circles," one source explains. "Kyle won’t hear a word against him so people just talk about it behind her back."

A rep for the "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" couple insists there was nothing more to Schultz's encounter with Umansky … although the denial is strangely-worded. The statement to Star claims that as a real estate agent, part of Umansky’s job is "networking and being friendly and pleasant, and this is construed as flirting. He is a good looking guy." (omg! also asked Richards' rep for a statement, but did not immediately get a response.)

The same day the cheating report hit, the Umansky-Richards clan was in New York City for a family trip – and choosing to ignore the rumors. "Such a beautiful day in NYC!!" Richards tweeted. "Excited to be here and have fun with our girls." Later, when a follower tweeted to her, "I am absolutely in love with Mauricio! He is always such a man!" Richards responded with a "thank you."
