Their marriage was annulled two weeks later, with Mario confessing on the Howard Stern show that he cheated on her during his bachelor party, according to Us Weekly. 

“It was my bachelor party,” Mario said, adding that he had been “bouncing around” Mexico with his cousins. 

“I had no business of being in that position,” he added.

He elaborated a bit on the fling saying: “It was spring break….everybody was hanging out. That was a situation where I was not mature and man enough.”

The star was caught by an onlooker poolside with the woman in question and leaked the photo, which his future wife’s sister got a hold of. 

“I was wrong for obviously lying, and I shouldn’t have been in that position,” he said.


Finally, Ali confronted him and Mario confessed he was not ready to be serious saying: “I dealt with all this drama, and then at that point just realize…I finally got the balls to say ‘Hey, listen I’m not ready for this, I’m sorry.’”

The two went their separate ways and Mario moved on to date his Dancing With the Stars partner and professional dancer Karina Smirnoff.

Mario and Karina ended things in 2008 and then met Courtney.
