Just a few months ago, Whitney says she uncovered a web of nasty lies and infidelities. She says Adam has cheated on her numerous times, including with a girl from college, women from work and massage therapists, and that he has even exposed himself to her own mother 10 times!

She also says her mother, Wendy, didn’t tell her about it. Wendy claims she didn’t say anything because she was afraid Whitney wouldn’t believe her.
