Splitsville for ‘RHONYC’ star Ramona Singer; Madonna hooks up with Miley

 

Phew. Ramona Singer won’t be raving about her fabulous husband Mario any longer. The couple have separated after a whopping 27 years of marriage. Last fall, the Real Housewives of NYC star, 56, denied reports that her 60-year-old estranged husband had impregnated another woman, socialite Kasey Dexter, but she got an abortion.

Page Six reports cops were called to the Bravo couple’s Southampton vacation home Friday night to break up a domestic spat. The newspaper adds that Mario is still currently romancing Dexter, a former personal trainer, out in the open.

Dynamic duo

Well, this is getting interesting. Madonna’s next collaboration is with ... Miley Cyrus, reports E! News. The pop legend, 55, will be performing with fellow eyebrow raiser for the 21-year-old’s MTV Unplugged special, airing 9 p.m. Wednesday.

Such sweet sorrow

Supermodel Heidi Klum is back on the market. The 40-year-old single mother of three parted ways with her bodyguard boyfriend, Martin Kirsten, a few weeks ago, but we doubt she’s unprotected. A pal close to the pair confirmed the news to People saying, “Martin was there for her during a challenging time in her life and it was something she will always be grateful for.”

Driving case

A New York judge has released Flavor Flav without bail in his speeding case. State police say the rapper, whose real name is William Drayton, was speeding and driving without a license en route to his mother’s funeral on Jan. 9. The rapper pleaded not guilty Tuesday. Drayton, who lives in Las Vegas, was accused of driving 79 mph in a 55 mph zone on Long Island, N.Y. Police say the Long Island native also had a small amount of marijuana.

His lawyer told the judge that she has taken care of 16 outstanding traffic matters.

Drayton had to remove his trademark clock from around his neck to pass through the metal detector. After court, he told journalists that “God is good.”

    Amber Valletta comes clean: I’m a raging addict

    Amber Valletta isn’t playing the blame game. The model-actress (Hitch, Revenge, Transporter 2) talked candidly in a video for MindBodyGreen.com and takes full responsibility for her addiction to drugs and alcohol. In the clip, Valletta says she started young, sniffing markers while growing up in Oklahoma, then graduated to the hard stuff when she began posing for magazines. Even though she has been sober for 25 years, the self proclaimed raging addict still has moments when she wants to “distract herself” because she’s “uncomfortable being a human being.” The 40-year-old mother of one, who is married to volleyball player Chip McCaw, credits looking inward constantly to stay healthy.
