“You know being with Mario, filming with him, it’s just kind of deja vu,” Ramona explained to Entertainment Tonight.
Ramona and Mario called it quits on their marriage after two decades in 2014 after his affair with Kasey Dexter, who he’s been dating on and off in the years since, was confirmed. However, their divorce wasn’t finalized until two years later due to some back and forth on Ramona’s part.
Although Ramona and Mario endured some very rocky times, they are currently in a much better place as friends as they continue to co-parent their 23-year-old daughter, Avery.
“Mario and I are in a very good place. We’re friends. We share a daughter together — and, listen, he was a really great husband and father for so many years, he really was, that’s why we were married for over 20 years,” Ramona said.
As for the future, Ramona is looking forward to finding someone new.
“You’re going to see me dating and you know, dating isn’t easy, and you just have to make it fun because what else can you do? You have to keep a chipper attitude,” she explained. “I’m definitely ready to connect with someone great in my life. If it happens it happens. If it doesn’t, it doesn’t. But hey, I’m going to try.”
“Jill and I are friendly and she came in a few situations that were organically real. You will see how she comes in and out as a guest,” Ramona revealed.
“She’s not a housewife. She’s just a friend. So… she’s not going to be a housewife,” Ramona stated, after the host referred to Barbara as a housewife. “I don’t know what she is and I don’t want to talk about her. They’re not giving her an apple or anything.”
The Real Housewives of New York City season 11 premieres on Wednesday, March 6 at 9 p.m. on Bravo TV.
