Mikey Bortone was a contestant on Survivor: Micronesia. But he only climbed the international spotlight in 2022, as he cheated on his lovely wife Aurora Culpo (from The Culpo Sisters).
Let’s get to know Mikey better as this article proceeds.
The Culpo Sisters: Meet Mikey Bortone, Aurora Culpo Husband
In the very first episode of The Culpo Sisters, Aurora Culpo sits her sisters down and tells tell her husband Mikey Bortone has been cheating on her.
According to Aurora, she received an anonymous tip that her husband was unfaithful and when she finally confronted him, Mikey eventually admitted to having an affair and to cheating on Aurora multiple times.
Surprisingly, Aurora didn’t immediately cut him off because she had set a unique parameter for their relationship when they started dating. “I made a rule with him, way back when, because I was so confident that nothing could ever come between what we had. Nothing would ever be as special as what we had. He was allowed to have one a year, like a hook up with a random person,” she explained.
But Aurora’s sisters weren’t having it. “What are you thinking?” Olivia exclaimed,
Thereafter, Aurora realized that she didn’t get the same freedom as her husband did, and eventually, made up her mind to file for divorce in April 2022.
Mikey and Aurora married in 2019 and share two children named Remi and Solei Marie Bortone. After Aurora filed for divorce, Mikey also responded with his own divorce suit and asked the court for joint custody of their children.
Their kid, Remi turned 4 on June 13, 2022. “Remi Berkeley Bortone 6/13/18. 8lbs 15.2 oz. I really wanted 9 but I’ll take it,” Mikey posted on his IG when Remi was born.
As for Solei — pronounced So-lay (Inspired by the Italian word Sole & French Soleil) — she was born on August 16, 2020.
Looking back, Aurora always claimed that Mikey was the most loving husband, her soul partner, and an even more amazing father.
Their last post together on Aurora’s IG was in May 2021 (on their second anniversary), captioned, “I once read “90% of being married is just shouting “what” from the other room”. Trying to have conversations from opposite ends of the house is definitely something I do that annoys Mikey.”
Fun Fact: Mikey’s daughter shares a birthday with Aurora’s grandfather (also the same date her grandmother passed away). Also, she was born exactly 1 year after Mikey lost his precious dog Woogie woo — that his sister found her in a park in Nashville when she was less than 1.
