RHOP’s Mia Thornton was spotted rocking an engagement ring at BravoCon and skirts around questions that she’s engaged amid her divorce.
The reporter, who noticed that the RHOP star was wearing an engagement ring, then asked: “So, there is someone special. Are you engaged?”
Mia Thornton replied: “I am committed. I’m not available. So don’t come in my DMs, all right.”
When it comes to her ongoing divorce with estranged husband Gordon Thornton, the RHOP star said her soon-to-be ex initially wasn’t happy about her new man or their divorce but has since settled down and is dating as well.
“Gordon’s actually, you know, obviously at first he’s not so happy because he decided to go public. But, you know, every day gets easier. He’s actually dating. So we are really focusing on being good co-parents for our children. You know, it’s like the kids are what’s really important at this point. We’re gonna be good. And I think it’s important, for people to see that we are going to co-parent. I think it’s gonna be great.”
Back in September, Mia Thornton announced her separation from Gordon after 11 years of marriage.
“Like all marriages, ours has had its ups and downs,” the 38-year-old Bravo star told PEOPLE in September. “At this time, Gordon and I are separated, but my family is my number one priority, and I am committed to doing whatever it takes to make sure we are okay.”
“We ask that you respect our privacy and give us the time and space to figure things out,” she added.
Mia and Gordon, 70, have been married since March 2012. They share two children: son Jeremiah Carter, 8, and daughter Juliana, 6. Both Mia and Gordon also each have one child from their previous relationships.
The Bravo couple’s marital woes are set to play out on season 8 of RHOP, which premiered Sunday, November 5 on Bravo.
After the news of Mia and Gordon’s split became public, Gordon came out swinging against his estranged wife.
The 70-year-old explained that due to his prostate cancer struggle, he gave Mia permission to step outside their marriage to “satisfy her needs” as long as she kept it private and kept the kids out of it.
However, Gordon alleged, “[Mia] still chooses to sneak around, chooses to lie, chooses to continually change her story about what’s going on and why she’s leaving me and this, that, and the other – actually NOT telling me why.”
“Mia married me for my money and for the life she thought I could provide,” he continued. “I absolutely believe her leaving me now is tied to the fact that I don’t have access to assets and funds unlimited at this point in time. This guy that she’s seeing has access to funds, and I think she’s leaving me for that reason.”
The RHOP husband said that he was informed “that they [Mia and her new boo] are going to buy a house together and doing businesses together and other kinds of things together, which tells me [the] interest is based on [the] monetary gain from the relationship.”
“I absolutely believe that she’s leaving me because she sees an upgrade.”
RHOP airs Sunday at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
