Real Housewives of New York fans watched Ramona Singer’s marriage to her husband, Mario Singer, crash and burn —but uncovered documents reveal that the reality star’s reported first marriage was actually her second.
Ramona’s first husband, Dr. Howard Sobel, has even been featured in the RHONY spotlight.
According to New York City Marriage License Index Records, Ramona and Dr. Howard Sobel, a cosmetic dermatologist, were issued a marriage license in 1987.
“Sobel, Howard D. married a bride named Ramona E. Mazur in the year 1987 on license number 29802 issued in Manhattan, New York City, New York, USA,” according to the New York, New York; Borough Manhattan Municipal Archives.
Ramona and Mario tied the knot in 1992, split in 2014, and finalized their divorce in 2016.
Dr. Sobel made an appearance on RHONY during Season 11, injecting Tinsley Mortimer with Botox to treat her TMJ.
Dr. Sobel’s practice was also featured in a Bravo Style and Living piece in October 2019, titled “Everything You Need to Know Before Trying Botox for the First Time.”
“Dr. Sobel is the go-to dermatologist and injector-in-chief for many of the Real Housewives, counting Bethenny Frankel, Ramona Singer, and Tinsley Mortimer as patients (in fact, he appeared on The Real Housewives of New York City last season to give Tinsley Botox to treat her TMJ),” the article states.
In April 2019, Dr. Sobel posted a photo with Ramona, promoting a recent cosmetic procedure.
“It was great having you at the office today @ramonasinger, excited to see your final results 😄” the skincare pro captioned the snap.
RHONY alum, Bethenny Frankel, has also promoted Dr. Sobel on social media.
The Real Housewives of New York is on hiatus.
