Now that Joanna Krupa has officially filed for divorce from her estranged husband, Romain Zago, The Real Housewives of Miami pal is opening up about her split in a new interview with In Touch, saying that she was “caught off guard” by it. She recalled that Romain was the one that asked for a divorce last December after nearly four years of marriage.
“I spent many nights crying. It was the worst Christmas imaginable. I felt like my life had been turned upside down, and I couldn’t see the light at the end of the tunnel," she told In Touch. "I cried. I couldn’t eat. I probably lost about 7 pounds.”
In the wake of the split, Joanna admits that these days she's feeling better than ever. “I feel alive again. I finally woke up one day thinking, 'I’ve got to get myself together.' I had been dead inside. I realized I’m healthy, I’m successful, I have an amazing family and friends, what am I crying about? Life is too short." she said.
Joanna shared that she and her ex speak frequently, daily in fact, and are on "great terms," adding, "We were together 10 years, and I want to respect that. We were both at fault, we both neglected the relationship, but we’ve found forgiveness. I’m finally enjoying life again. I’m going out to dinners with friends and planning a vacation.”
