Sad news coming out of New York City: The only original cast member from Bravo’s current crop of NYC Housewives is calling it quits with her longtime hubby.

Page 6 is reporting that Ramona Singer, 57, who’s been on the Real Housewives of New York City since the show’s first season, is separating from husband Mario—and it’s getting nasty.

This may come as no surprise to some people, as the couple has had their fair share of ups and downs. In fact it was just a few months ago that rumors spread of Mario’s infidelity. But the couple stayed strong, put the rumors to bed, and continued raising daughter Avery, together.

I actually caught up with Ramona just last week at an event celebrating her eponymous Pinot Grigio brand at David Burke at Bloomingdale’s in New York City. When asked how Mario was doing, Ramona said he was “Great!” and that she was excited about some new items they worked on together for their True Faith jewelry line.

But what will come of their marriage (and several joint ventures?) One thing’s for sure—we’ll be tuning in to RHONY to find out.

And Ramona promised that we are in for one of the best seasons yet. When speaking of her cast mates she said, “You know what it was? We were a team. We worked really well as a team. The 3 new girls from last year, you know, they got their wings this year. They got into it faster and easier, and we were all willing to film a lot to have the best show ever. I just think the energy was good with all of the girls.”

But don’t expect a drama-free season. “You are going to see A LOT of fights,” Ramona added. “A lot of making up and a lot of fights. But the good news is, nothing gets too dark. Cause who likes too dark? No one likes it too dark.”

Real Housewives of New York City premieres Tuesday March 11, with a special 30 minute preview on Feb. 10.
