Ramona Singer has learned that it is tough to be on a reality show as successful as The Real Housewives of New York because one’s life is completely exposed. People can judge you, write their thoughts about your marriage, and people will often learn about affairs before yourself. And over the years, Ramona has gone through several friendships and she learned that her husband had cheated on her. In other words, Singer understands the pressures of filming, especially when it comes to husbands.
According to a new Us Weekly report, Ramona Singer understands why Yolanda Hadid has decided to step back for the next season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. The ladies may have been presented with new offers and Yolanda thought about the offer for a while. She announced this week that she would not be returning to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
“I think Yolanda is a very warm, down-to-earth, wonderful woman. And I think right now she just needs to take a break,” Ramona Singer has revealed about Yolanda, adding, “She needs time for herself.”
Over the past year, Hadid has experienced ups and downs with her Lyme disease. She continues to get treatment and some things appear to be working. But while she was fighting her health battle, Hadid’s marriage fell apart. She has spoken out about her failed marriage, saying that she was the one that changed and she simply couldn’t keep up with David Foster’s busy lifestyle. Now, she needs to find herself as a single mother again.
“She went through a lot of health issues, a lot of relationship issues. And I think she just wants to spend time with herself and just take care of herself and her family,” Ramona explains, adding, “I can understand that because the show is — it can be very all-encompassing and overwhelming.”
Hadid decided to announce her decision on social media, sharing that she would not be returning to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Ramona Singer may have seen the announcement on social media when the rest of the world learned about the exit.
“I would have loved a more graceful exit then ‘Season 6’ but sometimes we don’t get to control the ending of the chapters in our life,” she wrote. “I am leaving what’s over without denying its past importance in my life. I believe that every exit is a new entry and with that in mind I say goodbye to my Bravo Family as I continue to focus on a my recovery, my children and bring back the privacy within our Home,” Foster wrote in her official message to her fans on Instagram, according to Us Weekly, revealing, “Thank you to all the fans for your love and unwavering support these past 4 years. I am grateful for the housewife experience and all it has thought me. I’am excited about this choice and look forward to the next chapter of my life.”
Of course, Singer is no stranger to sharing marital issues on The Real Housewives of New York. A few seasons ago, Ramona learned that her husband may be seeing another woman on the side. Singer thought for sure the other woman was her daughter Avery, as it was the only “other woman” she could think of. However, Mario was later busted, hanging out with a much younger woman. Apparently, he had been too intimated by Ramona’s success on The Real Housewives of New York and with her companies, and he simply couldn’t handle it. Ramona gave him a few chances, but they later divorced. And one can imagine that Singer didn’t want this to play out on television.
According to Radar Online, Ramona Singer has been linked to many scandals involving her ex-husband and his mistress, Kasey Dexter. Apparently, Kasey wrote a letter to Ramona, giving her an ultimatum when it came to her husband. In the letter, the mistress claimed that Mario didn’t love Singer and she needed to let the marriage go. Ramona was concerned about her daughter, Avery, who blamed her father for ruining their family. These days, Singer has revealed that Avery does speak to her father.
