The last two years have been difficult ones for Ramona Singer as her marriage fell apart and she publicly had to deal with her husband, Mario Singer’s, very public affairs. While Ramona stayed mum on the subject of her marriage for a long time, she is now ready to start opening up about why her marriage of 22-years ended.
Ramona is now opening up about being blindsided by Mario’s cheating and missing the signs leading up to his affair in her new book, Life on the Ramona Coaster.
In a recent interview with PEOPLE, Ramona gets personal about the end of her marriage saying, “I think he felt that we were no longer a team.”
Going on to say as her fame and success as a reality star grew Mario became more and more resentful.“It was my success as a celebrity reality star and notoriety that bothered him. If someone said, ‘Can I take a photo with Ramona?’ or interrupted our conversation at dinner, he would get upset.”
Ramona says that instead of Mario speaking up about his concerns and becoming a part of Ramona’s success he stayed quit and his unhappiness grew.
“He could have jumped in, but he continued to be passive,” Ramona reveals.
By the time Ramona realized Mario’s unhappiness and feelings of being left out it was too late as Mario’s affair had already started.“The affair was really a symptom of unhappiness. It’s still betrayal.”
I feel for Ramona and I always thought her and Mario were a great couple who really seemed to be in love and have a passionate relationship. Hopefully they both can find happiness post-divorce.
Do you think the reality TV and fame destroyed Ramona’s marriage?
