"The Real Housewives of Orange County" star Vicki Gunvalson is in news over her ex-boyfriend Brooks Ayers' infidelity. A new report in The National ENQUIRER claimed that the businessman secretly admitted cheating on the television reality star with several women, including hookers.

The shocking infidelity confession made by Ayers was caught on tape and obtained by The National ENQUIRER, according to a report by Radar Online. The audio recording, which was obtained from undercover sting in a Las Vegas hotel during his meeting with a business associate, has Ayers saying: "I've been known to cheat."

He claimed he had slept with several women and even revealed the name of a prostitute he met during a poker game and paid her around $300 to $400 for the sex encounter. "Bottom line, it hurt Vicki to know even if we weren't together that I f***ed somebody else," he said on the tape.

He also made shocking revelation that he checked into a rehab in 2006 for sex addiction.

The businessman, who recorded Ayers' confessions on tape, said that he did it on the reality star's request.

"I recorded [Brooks] out of an abundance of caution, specifically at the request of Vicki Gunvalson," he told The ENQUIRER, as reported by Radar Online. "She asked me to help Brooks. Given his background, I did not want this guy walking away making false claims about our time. Who knows what he would have said."

Gunvalson, 52, and her on and off boyfriend Ayers split last month. The businessman called it quits with the reality star at "The Real Housewives of Orange County" reunion special episode in August, leaving her in tears. She said that she was looking forward to settle down with him before their relationship ended.
