“It feels like I’m getting married again for the first time!” Ramona tells us.
Ramona Singer got what every married woman dreams of: After 18 years with husband Mario, she renewed her wedding vows, and you’ll see it on season three of The Real Housewives of New York City, which premieres March 4 at 11 p.m. on Bravo. “Walking down that aisle, walking down that staircase, I looked at him and I realized I love him more today than the day I married him,” Ramona told HollywoodLife.com exclusively at the season premiere party Feb. 24 in New York.
“OMG! It was so romantic!” she told us. “I kept saying, ‘Mario, when we get married…’ and he was like, ‘What do you mean when we get married? You are married.’ I said, ‘It feels like I’m getting married again for the first time.’ It really did, I was nervous! I was excited. I felt like a bride. I wanted to renew our vows because I wanted us to make a recommitment. We were married 18 years.”
Mario joined our conversation to share his feelings on the magical event. “It was wonderful,” he told us. “I loved it. It was her idea and it was a great idea. It was to make my wife happy. I do anything to make my wife happy. I think it was better [than the first time we got married.]”
But Mario did have one concern. “I was nervous that I would blow my vow,” he confessed. “I had written my vow and didn’t get a lot of chance to rehearse it, so I had a friend of hers sit in for her. I was going over and over, and was like, ‘I’m never going to get this right.’ It was going to be on television, and I was like, ‘Oh my God, I’m totally going to blow this.'”
Ramona and Mario, congrats on renewing your vows. We think that sounds totally romantic, and we hope that your happiness only continues to build over the next 18 years!
