Mario Singer

Real husband Mario Singer gives his take on this week's episode.

on Apr 14, 20090

Thank you for all your responses. I must say there were quite a few of you who did not appreciate my sense of humor and really took my comments way to seriously. It was very interesting to read how some of you saw though the comments and found them funny while others called me very ungentlemanly and should behave more like Simon. More on that later.

The poor girl would have had a heart attack if I had kept it up so I started feeding her the ball to make her look good.

Trust me, I am always a gentleman when called for, but Jill needed to be taken down a couple of notches. What was not shown in last weeks tennis match was after MaRona defeated SiJill in less than 20 minutes 6-0 and it wasn’t even that close, Kirk was kind enough to take Simons place and we really had a fun set. Everyone enjoyed it including Jill and the people who came to watch got to see some good tennis. There is even a twist and if the powers that be decide to show the match that should have been, I don’t want to spoil it for the viewers. One more thing and then I’m going to move on. I was really surprised how Jill said her game was improving and she thought that she and Simon could have beaten us. Clearly, she forgot how she was sucking air running back and forth to get the shots I was hitting. The poor girl would have had a heart attack if I had kept it up so I started feeding her the ball to make her look good. That’s the thanks I get from her.

Mario! You are hilarious! You make the show! I love that you love your wife and daughter so well, but I mostly love all of your one liners toward the others! A real crack up! Keep them coming as I find you outrageously funny! My daughter who is also 15 thinks you are a real card!

Poor Mario, There are some many blogs about you not being a gentleman, obnoxious and other negative titles. One day you'll grow out of it. These are often traits of a teenager. Once you become a man you should have rid those bad behaviors. Good luck!

YOUR FUNNY AND FRANK. YOU AND BETHANNY SAY IT LIKE IT IS!! THE COMMENT ABOUT SIMON LOSSING IT AND THE LOOK ON ALEX'S FACE, SO - SO - TRUE. I'VE BEEN THERE MYSELF AND FELT HER FEAR, WHICH BRINGS ME TO LUANN. LUANN NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT THROUGH THIS DIFFICULT TIME NOT YOUR CRITICISM. SHOW A LITTLE HEART. MR. MACHO MARIO MAY FIND HIMSELF IN THE SAME SITUATION.

In reading through the blogs I find many of you very self serving. Advertising your personal businesses over and over again. So your dig at the Zarin's for doing so is pretty lame.

I was interested in looking at your jewelery line but after reading your very immature and snotty remarks about your fellow castmates makes me not want to do business with a faux christian. I understand that christians are indeed not perfect but you seem to be going out of your way to hurt and insult others.

All your jokes are at other people's expenses which is very telling of your true character. You need a reality check. You and Ramona are always talking negatively about everyone else on the show.

Stop talking about Jill....geeze. You are obsessed. It's really sad actually.

You are worse than a woman with all the gossip. Why are you blogging. It is for the Housewives. Stick to your day job.

I'm a fan of the show, and for the most part I understand the New York sense of humor (my parents are New Yorkers). That being said, I think you've taken your blog entries a bit too far. While I agree that Kelly does not seem to be Ivy League material, Columbia in particular is guilty of accepting many actors, models and famous faces. I don't agree with the practice, but it is what it is.

The LuAnn comment is a "low blow," and I don't appreciate the Alex and Simon comments either. Overall, the way you have approached the faults in others is tactless and shows a lack in class on your part. Be humane in the future. People make mistakes and at time lack rationality, acknowledge that and stick to being the sexy, classy man on the show.

Sure your bullying behavior is funny...NOT! Men who denegrate women all the time ARE bullies...like YOU! To get in someone's face the way you did to Jill is so above and beyond gentlemanly behavior but then no one was surprised that YOU did that. You're a coward hiding behind your wife on a show about WOMEN....GO AWAY! I don't think you are one bit funny and all your jokes are stolen...so give it up.

Mario,

You could probably take some pointers from Alex and Simons book.

I have never seen any other husband blog about a show intended to be about "Housewives", with such harshness. Mario why are you on here? Go away. Go back and watch last season, where you were quiet and hardly heard from. Believe me your silence would truly be golden. The fact that you feel that you need to tear down each woman makes you seem as if you are missing a vital piece(s) of your own manhood. You do not seem like much of a gentleman. Shame on you.

You're kind of a jerk off. Your comment about Kelly made me laugh. But all in all, you're a jerk off.

Geez Mario, you gossip more than the wives. You just seem so mean-spirited and arrogant, making sure to talk trash about each and every cast member. Not cool Mario, not cool at all.

Viewer

You're OK Mario. You have an easy head, can get along with anyone. I think your intelligence has been underestimated and your sense of humor misinterpreted. If you can live and work with Ramona, you have nerves of steel, bless you for that. Have fun.

You're a bigger pompous ass than your wife. You guys belong together. GET OVER YOURSELVES!!!!

Wow. You are one reason why people think Christians are hypocrites. You judge everyone else and do not show love to your "neighbors", let alone your "friends". Maybe you should wear your jewelry more to remind yourself how you are supposed to act.

Im going to be real-- I think you say it like it is, and that's why you and Ramona are my favorite! I love that you two are completly REAL! You both are successful at your marriage, your businesses, and most importantly being parents--YOU TWO ROCK!

Mario,

I understand that you feel that Jill needed to be taken down a few notches, but what you did came across as so mean spirited and obnoxious, that I really wonder why Bobby stood there and allowed you to disrespect his wife in that way! In fact, I wonder how you would have reacted if Bobby had behaved that way with Ramona?

If someone needs to be brought back to earth it is you! The first season I thought you were a great conterpoint to the mania that is Ramona, but now I see that you are just like her.

You two seriously deserve each other!!

I understand this is television but why that cruel dig at Luann? You really do prove yourself to be a real bully! and no class at all!!

I disagree with you on the "synergy" of Bethenny's merchandise and endeavors. Bethenny has only one line of products - BETHENNY Bakes. "Naturally Thin" is the title of the book by BETHENNY Frankel, and the Skinny Girl margarita is just ONE drink designed by BETHENNY; she's already made a name for herself in the food business and Ramona has not in her entrepreneurial realm. Bethenny is cohesive in her business and was in fact giving Ramona wise advice.

You are certainly no gentleman, and you appear to be as big a yenta as your own wife or for that matter, Jill, who you were inexcusably unchivalrous to. Grow a pair and learn proper grammar, as your blog does not warrant any criticism of anyone else's intellect (I'm certainly not in Kelly's court but you obviously have no degree from Columbia either).

OmG.... really your getting on my nerves...who talks about people who are going thru a divorce.. doesnt ramona proof read your blog?!?!? I dont even care for Luann and yet i cant believe you wrote that....I cant wait for next season cause i have a feeling your not on it...

Mario,

I loved reading your blog. You are very funny and your observations are spot on. I don't see why you received any hate mail, you lived the situation and actually know what's real and what is edited.

Your observation that LuAnn should add a chapter about divorce isn't a bad idea. It's something half the country deals with, it would also make her book more authentic.

I don't find you judgemental since I realize you are part of the show and have feelings about all your castmates, which I enjoy hearing. Bring on the humor!

Mario, Really, you were feeding the balls to Jill? Be ashamed. She really got moving and was playing very well without you feeding balls to her. But, the scene at the page six party was ridiculous. You need to get a life.

So it's classy to judge the women on a show that's not about you! I get the feeling others are right "You have a crush on Jill"! Mario next episode you need to put your dress and heels on and go shake your booty with Ramona.

I see some think your blog to be funny....not so much. Take a course in people skills. Your jealousy, insenativity, and manners need to be addressed.

Mario I am certainly a fan of yours--you seem like a top notch guy. But the comments regarding LuAnn would have been better left unsaid.

Love the show!

OMG !!! Mario !! You are too funny !!! I am serious !! Not as far as My Jill goes though. I am a Jill fan. But you were so quiet last season. I really thought you were a snob . You remind me of so many guys I grew up with in LI..lol..Oh don't pick on Bethany thats my girl too. The rest is fair game. Oh and you need to tell Ramona too come down with the I'm flipping out expressions on her face at times. Even though she dosen't verbaly flip you can see her doing it inside on her facial expressions. Like when Simon showed up for tennis.

love love love it keep it coming and its reality tv the claws are allowed to be out and in the episodes Luann does come across all fairytale like it would be nice to see the dysfunctions more from her the other peeps in the show show theirs sort of still waiting for the finish wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

I tried to post yesterday but apparently I didn't make the cut. Mario - the offer still stands. I would LOVE to challenge you to some tennis. I played for a D 1 University years ago, but I'm pretty confident that I could still take you down on the court. You need to pick on people/players of similar skills, and not try to humiliate those who obviously aren't of your caliber.

Ramona - I didn't like you last year but luv you this year. You're truthful to a fault, but at least one knows what they are getting with you. Keep on rockin!

"LuAnn is seen working on her book which I understand will be out shortly. Maybe they should hold the presses and make a few changes. Out with the chapter on “How to stay Happily Married” and add a chapter on “The Proper Manners and Etiquette when going though a Divorce."

Why is that remark considered so cruel? When you are on a reality show - you put yourself out there - for all to see. I don't think that remark is cruel - it's a little dig - but not something that hasn't crossed most of the viewers minds. And the Christian people? The meanest - most judgemental ones out there! Please. Mario - keep blogging. Funny stuff.

Mario, A gentleman never finds it necessary to "take down" a person a few pegs. How would you like it if someone said that about your wife? I had some respect until that comment.

Viewer

Wow after reading your blog we understand you have some real issues. Maybe you should take a couple of classes in people skills. The remark in regards to Luann? Totally uncalled for. There is something called Karma. You would be someone I would not care to be around at all!

Thanks, Mario!
Thanks, Mario!

Mario,

I enjoyed reading your blog, it's nice to hear your side since Jill and Bethenny seem to get a free pass on everything they say and do.

I don't understand the overly negative comments towards you considering we all watched Jill take an invitation from you and turn it into a three ring circus.

She must win at any cost and doesn't care if she insults or hurts other people in the process. A simple tennis match became this major event about her and then she tries to deflect the debacle by trashing you.

I'm really tired of Jill and Bethenny trashing everyone all the time and then bragging about themselves. This show has definately gone to their heads. They have become too obnoxious and self righteous.

What you said TO Simon is the same thing the other ladies said behind his back, yet you,re trashed??

Simon is the self professed fashionista, so it only makes sense that you would be surprised at his attire. You would think he would have run out and been fitted from head to toe. Your question to him made sense to me because of his claims about his fashion sense.

If you had made similar claims, you would be ribbed too but who knows if that person would be trashed for asking you! Talk about double standards.

I hope you keep blogging, you are funny and aren't afraid to tell us your feelings about the show. Thanks!
