One week after the Real Housewives of New York star announced she was ending her 20-year marriage, Ramona opened up in a candid new blog about why it was time to ditch her cheating hubby.
"Having your husband betray you is the worst feeling in the world, and I wish it on no one," Ramona wrote. "I feel like I was emotionally bruised for the past five months by Mario… I was in a fragile state."
The Bravo reality show's three-part reunion special just finished airing Tuesday, and Ramona made it pretty clear to host, Andy Cohen, she wasn't ready to talk then.
"I want this closed down!" she told Cohen on the show. "Stop it, Andy. I don't want to talk about it."
In her blog post, she says she regrets getting testy with the show's host, but stands by her decision to stay tight-lipped at the time.
"I must say I was not as respectful as I should of (sic) been to Andy," she wrote. "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."
And it turns out, she was staying quiet for Mario's sake, too, and has since thought better of it.
"Mario was extremely adamant about me not speaking about our relationship and his infidelity," she continued. "This is so not who I am — I always speak freely on all subjects. I was allowing my husband to control my behavior."
And despite drama with the other housewives being at the forefront of the show, Ramona said during the reunion she was grateful for them being there for her.
"Yes, Andy, all the women on the show, including LuAnn, were supportive of my situation with Mario," she said. "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."
