Drita tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively why she’s splitting from her cheating husband: ‘I could never lay with a man that I know was with someone else!’
During the season finale of Mob Wives, star Drita D’avanzo found out that her husband Lee D’avanzo had an affair during his stint between prison sentences. Because of this Drita decided to consult a divorce attorney on her options and refused to tell Lee that she was doing so. But since then, Drita has confronted Lee about his infidelities and decided to go through with a divorce!
“Right now it looks like I’m going to 100% [get divorced],” Drita tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “I did speak to him and we do not speak anymore since I confronted him about it. We don’t talk.”
Lee lied to Drita about what happened. “He said exactly what I thought he was going to say,” says Drita. “He said it wasn’t true, but I know it is. It’s just something that I don’t see him confessing to. I don’t really need his confession, I just need him to know that I’m not going to be there for him anymore.”
“It’s not easy, but I’m too prideful and I could never lay with a man that I know was with someone else,” continues Drita. “I can’t do it. I’m still heartbroken.”
Because of what Lee did to her, Drita doesn’t know what the future holds for her love life. “I don’t think I’m ever trusting anybody ever again,” she admits. “I’d rather be by myself than with somebody I can’t trust. I’m used to being alone.”
Right now, Drita’s just trying to remain positive. “I’m putting my mind and energy completely into making money on my businesses with my cosmetic line, Just Me, and the workout DVD coming out,” shares Drita.
“Always have something to fall back on because depending on the man is the worst thing,” Drita advises other women who are going through similar situations. “And keep your friends! I’ve seen so many lose their friends during their marriage and stop working — they depend on their husband. That’s why they’re staying because they’re stuck. I feel like there is a noose around my neck — that’s why I’ve always worked.”
And Drita only has one message for her soon-to-be ex-hubby, the same one she delivered to him when she confronted him. “I said, ‘You really did make so many mistakes in your life, but this could be the worst,'” Drita says. “‘Just to lose your family, it’s not worth it.'”
