Ramona Singer

Ramona speaks out about the irony of her maintaining that her relationship was fine on the reunion and where she is now.

Well everyone it's an end to Season 6. Little did I know until we finished filming several weeks later in October that my husband was having an affair. Little did I know I was the last one to find out. I was shocked beyond words.

When I filmed the reunion Mario and I had reconciled only the month before. I so wanted to try to get our relationship back on track. Mario was extremely adamant about me not speaking about our relationship and his infidelity. This is so not who I am -- I always speak freely on all subjects. I was allowing my husband to control my behavior.

Yes it was not filmed on the show, but it is still, as Andy said, part of my current reality. I must say I was not as respectful as I should of been to Andy. I also now understand what LuAnn went through and should have been more kind to her no matter how she pushed my buttons.

Having your husband betray you is the worst feeling in the world, and I wish it on no one. How ironic that last week during Reunion Part 2 when I was protecting my husband and not being polite to Andy, just the week before I kicked Mario out and it came out in the press a day later, August 6.

So I am opening up now about why I was not candid as I should have been. Yes Andy all the women on the show, including LuAnn, were supportive of my situation with Mario. My friends were also. Without them I would never have been able to handle what I was going through. I thank all my fellow Housewives for their support and continued support.

I feel like I was emotionally bruised for the past five months by Mario. I felt at times as if I was walking on eggshells. We were working with a marriage counselor. I was in a fragile state.

Thank you viewers for supporting me and RHONY.
