Former Real Housewives of New York star Alex McCord has come out and defended Ramona Singer against former RHONY star Jill Zarin’s claims that Singer’s husband hit on her. McCord goes on to insist that the allegations are just the producer’s way of increasing the drama for ratings.
Speaking with In Touch magazine, ex Real Housewives of New York star Jill Zarin claims that Mario Singer, Ramona’s husband made several advances to her. However, McCord took to her blog, “The Stir!” to dismiss the claims.
McCord wrote, “I don’t buy it for a red hot minute!” She went on to write, “Having known the Singers for six years, Mario is a flirt but all talk and no action!”
“He might flirt with a housewife; he might yell at a housewife. He’s not going to sleep with a housewife, except Ramona.” Addressing the actions of Jill Zarin, Alex McCord said, “I think Jill is up to her old shenanigans, trying to keep her name in magazines, and feeding her irrational hatred of Ramona. Why do this? I’m shaking my head.”
The blame for all the drama surrounding Mario Singer gets places squarely on the shoulders of the reality show’s producers according to Alex. “For years, reality producers are trying to make Mario a lothario, just like any time you ever saw Ramona sip a drink or Kelly roll her eyes or me turn red, any time Mario’s attention was distracted, the producers showed it.”
“But if all they’ve got is edited clips, they’ve got nothing. If all they’ve got is him flirting with ladies at parties, they’ve got nothing! I’ve flirted with him! It’s all in good fun. It doesn’t mean you’re actually doing anything.”
Jill Zarin on the other hand is insistent that Mario Singer made sexual advances making things uncomfortable. She also claims that she had to get her husband Bobby “to tell Mario to leave me alone.”
Zarin told In Touch, “When we were taping the show, Mario hit on me. Mario flirted with me as I saw him flirt with many other girls.”
This past August, Mario and Ramona were in the midst of cheating claims after Mario was accused of getting a blonde woman from the Hamptons pregnant. Claims that Ramona Singer has vehemently denied.
Zarin alleges that, “He [Mario] was always looking around. People would talk about it, but nobody would ever say anything because they didn’t want to hurt Ramona. They felt bad for her.”
Zarin went on to say, “Ramona and I lived through an incredible experience together, so of course I will support her any way I can. The best thing for her to do is to stand tall and move on.”
