She shared the startling secret while in couples therapy with her husband.
“At the time when it should’ve been the best year of my life, he started an affair,” she dished, explaining he came clean about his infidelity on April Fools Day of all days.
“I caught him whispering to this person on the phone and I suspected something was wrong…I just knew something was different and I was told I was crazy.”
She continued, adding their three daughters — 13-year-old Sophie and 10-year-old twins Stella and Adeline — found out about the situation, and despite all that, she didn’t consider splitting with her hubby.
She lamented, “Divorce is not an option, it has never been an option for me. I love my family and I will do whatever it takes to keep my family together.”
On her Bravo blog, the 51-year-old opened up about her decision to go public with her heartache.
“David and I do not want to adversely impact our children and are hoping to rewrite our future to positively influence them,” she wrote.
She continued, “When watching David reveal the highs and lows in his life, I felt like I was punched in the stomach. I saw that he listed the affair as both a ‘high’ and a ‘low.’ I heard him say that the affair gave him ‘new life.’ Today, I am trying to process through the hurt that I feel from his comments. Some moments can be difficult, but I am focusing on the positive. I remind myself of the commitment that David has made to both me and our family. He has not only made himself accountable to me, but to everyone who watches the show, and for that, I am grateful beyond words.”
