Though the Holts never mentioned Martell’s mistress by name, YouTube blogger, Funky Dineva, claims he discovered who is in the center of the Holt’s drama. According to Dineva, Martell’s mistress is a registered nurse named Arianna Curry, who began her three-year affair with Martell when he was allegedly separated from Melody. Their relationship continued even after the Holts reconciled and Martell flaunted Curry around town. It’s even rumored that Martell and Curry went on vacations together, had matching luxury vehicles and that he purchased her a condo.
