Ramona Singer is officially divorced from her ex-husband Mario, PEOPLE confirms.

After more than 20 years of marriage, the couple finalized their divorce this week.

The Real Housewives of New York star told PEOPLE, “Divorce is always bittersweet. I feel I had a successful long-term marriage. We were happily married for more than 20 years. We have a wonderful daughter together. Things aren’t always forever, but my life is really good. I’m in a good place and I’m really happy.”

Ramona, 59, first filed for divorce in January 2014 after she reportedly caught Mario cheating. Still, the couple (who are parents to 21-year-old daughter Avery) reconciled shortly after.

But in August 2014, Ramona chose to proceed with the divorce after she discovered that her husband of 22 years had reconnected with his mistress, Kyle "Kasey" Dexter, that summer.

“I tried to make my marriage work because I have strong values and I believe that people make mistakes,” Singer previously PEOPLE. “But you reach a point where you realize the other person isn’t putting in as much effort as you are. And I reached my breaking point.”
