It was recently revealed that Real Housewives of New York star Ramona Singer, 56, was separating from her 60-year-old husband, Mario, after 27 years of marriage, and that the former celebrity couple was now dating other people. It turns out there’s a bigger scandal hidden behind their decision to suddenly split.

Singer pulled the plug on their marriage after she reportedly caught her husband having an affair with a much younger woman. Jill Zarin, who is a close friend of Singer’s, said that people have been trying to tell Singer for a while that her husband was having an affair, but she refused to believe it. It wasn’t until she caught him that she finally realized it was true. According to insiders, Singer caught her husband with his much younger girlfriend, 27-year-old Kasey Dexter, at the celebrity couple’s home in the Hamptons.

“[Singer] saw him there with the girlfriend and made a big scene and called the police, she did not want a divorce,” said Zarin, adding that Singer doesn’t want to go through with a divorce because she “loves her life” and her husband. Another source also reportedly told Radar Online that Singer doesn’t want a divorce and would still take her husband back after the affair, because “she depends on Mario for everything.”


As you might recall, Mr. Singer was accused of having an affair with this same younger woman back in 2013, and he even allegedly got her pregnant and paid for her abortion. However, the story was never really proven, although sources said he continued to see his young mistress after the abortion, while Mrs. Singer continued to be in denial.

Singer still hasn’t admitted or denied the reports of her husband’s alleged affair with the woman who’s less than half his age, but she did release a statement saying, “This is a personal and private matter for our family.” She also went on Twitter to thank everyone for the support, but to ask for privacy, out of consideration for the celebrity couple’s 19-year-old daughter.
