As it turns out, the reality star was right to suspect her husband of being unfaithful. reports a Boston woman, Beverly Shiner, 30, came forward and confessed to hooking up with Chad for months before he got married. She claims she thought he was single.


"I Googled him before we met and saw he was engaged, but at the time there were reports that she had broken it off because she thought he was cheating, so I assumed they had split up," she said.

Now, the Dancing with the Stars alum, wants his wife back and she's not interested in reconciling. "To say this has been a bad week for Chad would be a drastic understatement," a source tells, "He is desperate to win Evelyn back, so he feels he has at least one person on his team, but she is resolute that is NOT going to happen."

"Chad has been tearfully calling and texting Ev, pouring his heart out to her and telling how sorry he is and how he has never loved anyone before as he loves her. But, it's just too little too late. Evelyn will not tolerate being cheated on and being physically attacked and she has washed her hands of Chad for good. She was desperately in love with him and ignored a lot of warning signs along the way, but now that she has finally woken up, she will not be taking any steps back and will not go back to him."
