Ramona Singer may be divorcing her husband of 27 years, Mario. Sources speaking to a number of entertainment websites claim 'The Real Housewives of New York City' star may have filed for divorce due to Mario's infidelity, rumours of which circulated earlier this week.
Mario and Ramona Singer may be separating if rumours can be believed.
Rumours circulated earlier this week suggesting the Mario may have been seeing another woman. Sources, speaking to People, claim Singer discovered her husband with his girlfriend in their Hamptons home last weekend (24th-26th January). The source also stated Singer had previously turned a blind eye to Mario's philandering. Jill Zarin, a former co-star of Singer's on The Real Housewives, also believes Singer was aware of Mario's infidelities for some time. Speaking to People, Zarin said: "Ramona has been protecting him. She looked the other way when people told her he was cheating."
However, this contradicts other sources who claim Ramona had no idea of Mario's extra marital activities until last summer, as E! reports. As these rumours primarily rest upon hearsay and 'sources close to Singer' it may be some time before the tangle of lies, truths and half-truths is unravelled. We may have to wait for season 7 of The Real Housewives of New York City to find out!
Appearances can be deceptive, especially if the rumours claiming Singer turned a blind eye to Mario's alleged affairs are true. Singer posted this Instagram picture in November of her enjoying time with Mario and their daughter, Avery.
The couple have been married for 27 years and, although Singer has not as yet confirmed their separation, there are signs that she is going through a rocky patch. On Wednesday (29th January) she tweeted thanking her friends and fans for support in what she described as a "difficult time." She also added she wished her privacy were respected during this time. This is echoed by Singer's comments, as People report, in which she said the situation was "a personal and private matter for our family."
Thank you all for the love & support! For my daughter's sake, I would appreciate everyone respecting our privacy during this difficult time.— Ramona Singer (@ramonasinger) January 29, 2014
