The group will go on vacation with the couples, with Whitney and Matt taking some time alone – despite their partners being under one roof.
A TV insider told MailOnline: “Whitney and other cast members were really shocked by cheating on their partners – not just because of the hurt he caused but because of the circumstances as well.
The couples had gone away to a husbands haven and were there to focus on their relationships, but Whitney and Matt had other ideas.
Gemma, who thought she had met the love of her life in Matt, is devastated, while Duca does his best to give his marriage to Whitney a chance.
