Ramona Singer is setting the record straight on a recent report that she was spotted out and about on a romantic evening with Andrew Catapano.
The Real Housewives of New York City entrepreneur told Page Six that she and Catapano are just friends. “He’s a family friend. Close to me, [daughter] Avery and [ex-husband] Mario," she confirmed to Page Six. "Not a date. Lol.”
Ramona added that she's “known him for 24 years." “He’s like a brother," she said of Catapano.
Catapano, a contractor, grabbed headlines about a decade ago for his high-profile divorce, as well as his fraud trial, which resulted in a 10-month prison sentence for conspiracy to commit fraud in connection with several area construction projects.
Ramona's search for that special someone continues, which is particularly urgent given the installation of a 4-by-8-foot shower in one of her three bathrooms currently under renovation. “Hopefully this time next year I’ll have a partner to take showers with!” she gushed to Page Six.
