'Real Housewife' Ramona Singer Calls It Quits

"Real Housewives of New York" star Ramona Singer revealed on her Facebook page on Thursday that she is moving on with her life ... without her husband, Mario. The two have been married for 25 years and are the proud parents of 19-year-old Avery.



The photos below were posted to In Touch on August 6th -- and they may have been the last straw. They show Mario with reported mistress, 32-year-old Kasey Dexter.

The news doesn't come as a huge surprise to fans of "Housewives" -- the strained marriage was chronicled on the show, and rumors that Mario was having an affair with Dexter have been swirling for months.

In January, former "Housewife" Jill Zarin told People that Singer reportedly "looked the other way" during his indiscretions.

Following the negative publicity, Ramona tweeted:

The relationship quickly became tabloid fodder, and Ramona reportedly filed for divorce in January. However, she eventually called it off after a reported change of heart. Photos of Ramona and Mario holding hands were published on June 4th.

Ramona remained tight-lipped when asked about the marriage by Andy Cohen during the "Housewives" reunion show which aired Tuesday, August 5th. When pressed about the state of her relationship, she would only say her family was "great."

Ramona Singer is just the latest in a long line of Real Housewives who've become "Real Divorcees of Splitsville."

"Real Housewives of Orange County" Jeana, Tamra and Vicki all divorced their husbands. Fellow New Yorkers Countess Luann and Sonja Morgan both ended their marriages. "Real Housewife of Beverly Hills" Camille Grammer's marriage to Kelsey Grammer didn't even last through season one. From Atlanta DeShawn Snow, Lisa Wu and NeNe Leakes all called it quits (but NeNe re-married her husband after their split so they don't count.) Uber wealthy "Housewife of Beverly Hills" Adrienne Maloof divorced in 2012.

... And even the housewives that everyone forgot about got divorced. "Real Housewife of DC" Michaele Salahi split from her White House crashin' husband Tareq in 2011. That's just to name a few.

With a little time and a lot of Pinot Grigio we're sure Ramona will bounce back.
