It was more than just one Facebook post with photos that tipped me off to the notion that Ramona and Mario had been spotted together…and it appeared – to onlookers – to be more than platonic. Some are speculating that the two are back together and others say they’re just good friends who share a daughter, Avery, and will periodically reconvene to be with her at events.
Several years ago, when they split, I stated my assertion that this was probably a mid-life crisis for Mario and he would realize he should never have left the woman he loved most and had the most chemistry with (or at least, that is what I imagined to be the case). To me, it seemed that neither of them would find a greater love than the other. Something was amiss about their breakup and felt wholly unresolved.
Of course, this was just an opinion of mine and if Ramona and Mario are simply great friends, then my theory was incorrect. I am totally OK with being wrong.
My friends Donna, Karen and Greg spotted Ramona a few nights ago sharing laughs with her ex husband and then I saw a Facebook post echoing the sentiments that it APPEARS as if the two have rekindled their romance. Someone apparently mentioned “vow renewal” but maybe that was simply a reminiscence to the time the divorced couple held such an event.
We are only at the ALLEGEDLY stage right now, but a recent gathering of the New York Housewives, swarmed by camera crew, included Mario. This means that Season Eleven should bring us answers on their status….That is, unless People magazine delivers them sooner. Note to People reporter Dave Quinn: Get on it!

UPDATE: A close friend of Ramona’s tells me: “No. That (rekindling their romance) would be surprising. Remember, they have a daughter.”
