How Ramona Singer’s Daughter Avery Found Out About Mario’s Affair


“I know I’m a piece of work but now I’m a work in progress,” her tagline says for this season of the Real Housewives of New York City. Ramona Singer has been through a lot with her pending divorce with soon to be ex-husband Mario Singer, and now the reality star is revealing it all in her new memoir Life on the Ramonacoaster. There is a excerpt revealed from her book via the Daily Dish that tells how their daughter Avery found out about her father’s affair. Read below:

A few days later, Mario got a voicemail from a woman saying that if he didn’t give her money she was going to go to the press. At that point there had been only one article, which had been damaging enough. The last thing we needed while we were trying to salvage our marriage was a full-blown me-dia firestorm. Just the threat of it was so stressful that we got into a huge fight. Avery was in her room on the other end of the house, but she heard us screaming at one another. She told me later that it felt like something out of a movie. She described hearing me yell something like, “What are you go-ing to do? We need to protect Avery,” and her father answer, “I don’t know. It’s your problem, Ramona. Deal with it.” She couldn’t make out a lot of what we were saying, so she crept down the staircase and stood listening at the bottom. That’s when she heard her father say, “Ramona, I am one step away from walking out that door,” and me scream back, “Why don’t you just go f— her!”

It kills me to think how painful it must have been for Avery to hear us say those things. She told me later that at that moment, she felt as if her world had shattered into a million jagged little pieces. She snapped and just ran. She ran out the door, into a torrential rainstorm, and collapsed onto the ground. She pulled out her cell phone, and did what any teenage girl would do when she realizes her life is falling apart; she called her best friend. That’s when Mario must have heard her outside. Avery was screaming and hys-terically crying and, not realizing that she had overheard us arguing, he thought she was in physical pain. He ran out after her into the pouring rain, but when he tried to ap-proach her she screamed, “Don’t come near me. You cheated on Mommy. F— you. I hate you. Don’t come closer. Get away from me.” Mario came to get me and even-tually we got Avery to calm down enough to come back inside. Later, Avery told me that she had asked Mario not to tell me what she had heard, because she didn’t want to upset me, but I think he didn’t know what else to do so he told me anyway.


Life on the Ramonacoaster is set to be available on July 28th via Amazon. Ramona discusses her life from childhood to now, and her experiences on RHONY.

  1. Yep so I’m probably a horrible person for thinking this, but wow it sounds like Ramona got excerpts from her book from really cheesy movies. Avery went outside crying in the pouring rain and yelled at her horrible cheating father to defend her innocent mother? Crying in the pouring rain? Check. And even her confronting her father w a knife, that whole scene sounded like a bad overdone script and to me there are holes in that story: She pulls a knife on her abusive dad and he just decides to stop and can’t overpower a 15 year old and take it away from her?! Sorry Ramona but I’d be more on your side if you had some original thoughts and not reuse cheap movie plot points.

    1. LOL – I know!! I was thinking the same thing – they need to sell this book in the fiction category – anything for a buck!

  2. Well now Ramona has gone to new low levels! Bringing her daughters reaction, into her book, she didn’t need to say all of that, disgusting!!! Whether it was true or not! All she needed to say was Avery was devastated! End of!

  3. What’s up with the hyphenated words? Are they actually in the book, is that supposed to make you read the words in a certain way?

    1. That’s funny. I thought the same thing, especially Me-dia. I thought it was a Freudian slip that Ramona had to emphasize “me”:) Also, I feel very badly for Avery with this story but it does seem like Ramona’s book is not just a tell all but also an FU to Mario to get back at him for cheating 🙂

  4. Book will tank. Ramona has her crazy eyes on cover in what looks like uncmfortable position.

    So Avery runs outside in the pouring rain, collapsing right outside the apartment where Mario and Ramona could hear her? Did anyone hear THEM yelling to each other? Weird…

    1. Also she would have had to run down flights of stairs/get an elevator.
      They live in an apartment which doesn’t open to the street, that would be some super hearing he has, to hear her sobbing down on street level in the pouring rain!

  5. It sounds like they were in the Hamptons. There is no staircase in the NY apartment. She had to find out somehow as they were getting divorced because of it. So either her folks, or the press.

    1. I agree, the only way this story would make sense is if it was in the Hamptons house. For some reason I can’t picture Avery being on board with this story being put out there like this but who knows if she had a choice.

  6. So let me see if I got this right? Ramona is the ONLY WOMAN WHO HAS EVER BEEN CHEATED ON… this is a been there done that situation. Does anyone know how many books are written about a cheating spouse. I personally would NEVER pay even 5 bucks to buy a book that has been written over and over and over again just the names change. Im sorry for Avery’s situation but Ramona and Mario did this and if they can’t act like adults how she turns out is on them. Ramona one thing. When people said you were on the Ramona coaster that was NOT a compliment. It was a comment made that your actions are all over the place, you have no filter and you cannot in anyway allow others to have good fortune because your the only one on the show that according to you deserves it. People if you are really going to buy this book (and there is a curse on Housewives books….. they don’t sell because the stories are me me me, think about how that money would be better served by giving it to a charity…. if you really want to read or see a cheating story turn on the tv you can have your fill. She is a mess. I would love to see her book on the shelf next to Aviva’s book that is now on the clearance rack, next to all the books that were written by ghost writers.
    PS Carole’s 2 books were amazing. Inspiring.

      1. And why would she put out to the public how her daughter reacted to his affair ??? What kind of mother would do that to her child??? She is a terrible parent for doing such a thing. She is the true definition of ignorance… Disgusting

  7. I agree with all of you. What on earth could this woman say that would be of any interest to anyone but herself? She’s an egomaniacal idiot.

  8. Ramona collects a big paycheck to put her life on TV. Personally I saw it coming. She paraded Mario around like a dog. Your children finding about an affair is the price you have to pay when you get paid to document your life in public. If she really cared about her daughters feelings she should have dropped the show like a hot potato to save her daughter public embarrassment. I would never out my children threw that. Shame on her. Disgusting
