This “Real Housewives” Husband was Caught Cheating with a Woman Who’s Less Than Half His Age

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.

What do you think: Would you give your cheat­ing hus­band a sec­ond chance?
