It's been revealed that the younger brother of Real Housewives of New York City star Ramona Singer recently passed away.
Speaking to Us Weekly, 60-year-old Singer said, "My brother just died,” she shared. “No one knows this. He died about three weeks ago, my younger brother, and we weren’t close anymore."
Singer then spoke about trying to look for the silver-lining, saying, "Because of this death, I got closer to my niece. I flew her out … for about a week. And I spoke to her and said that I was really sorry about her dad’s death, but if it wasn’t for his death, you wouldn’t have bonded with [my daughter] Avery and I. So we have this whole new relationship we never had."
Additionally, she opened up about how the experience led her to make amends with her former Real Housewives of New York City co-star Jill Zarin, whose husband Bobby Zarin has been battling thyroid cancer.
"Jill has all these people rallying around her. You see how blessed you are with your friends. It doesn’t matter how much money you have. It doesn’t matter how famous or beautiful you are. What really matters is your family and friends, and friends become family. And Jill has great friends. We are all behind her 100 percent," Singer said.
She went on, "Life has ebbs and flows, its ups and downs, but I believe at the end of the day, you’ve got to be there for someone. And I’m there for Jill. It’s a new beginning to our friendship."0comments
Lastly, Singer mentioned that she recently went to the hospital to visit Bobby, saying, "I visited Jill and Bobby in the hospital as soon as I heard about his current condition. I have to say, he looked fabulous. He was in great spirits. He had a great sense of humor. Me and Jill had a very heartfelt talk that lasted about 45 minutes."
