With the news of his divorce getting more and more headlines, folks are learning more and more about White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci, including the fact that one of his favorite Big Apple hangout spots may sound a little familiar to fans of The Real Housewives of New York City.
According to the New York Post's Page Six, a friend of his says that the former Wall Street executive-turned-D.C. power player regularly frequents... the Regency (oh, you know the place). “He likes to be around power players. And Donald Trump is that to a certain extent. Bo Dietl is to another extent. He likes to be at the Regency, at Rao’s, wherever you can hobnob with Wall Street and New York glitterati,” Hunt & Fish co-owner Nelson Braff told the newspaper.
Sources further tell the newspaper that Anthony's estranged wife, Deidre, told him her plans to divorce him three weeks ago while she was pregnant with their second child, later filing divorce papers on July 6 in Nassau County Supreme Court. She gave birth to a son, James, last week. They are also parents to Nicholas, born in early 2014. The couple married later that year in July after he finalized his divorce from his first wife, Lisa, with whom he has three children.
UPDATE: On Monday at 2:43pm, the New York Times reported that Scaramucci had been removed from his role as White House Communications Director. It was unclear as of press time if Scaramucci would take on another role at the White House.
