Avery Singer first burst onto the Bravo scene as the pre-teen daughter of Real Housewives of New York‘s Ramona Singer. At times, Avery was caught acting as her mother’s voice of reason when Ramona started to… shall we say… misbehave on camera (lest we never forget the famous Hamptons pool scene in which Ramona and one of her gal pals engaged in a playful tousle and tried to throw each other into the pool). A very young Avery had to step in and act as the referee. YIKES.
But now she’s grown into a beautiful, young woman and is engaging in her very own Hamptons hijinks — often with her reality star mother in tow! Could there be a Ramona 2.0 making her rounds on the social circuit? Maybe…
So what is there to know about the reality star spawn? Does the apple not fall far from the tree? And does Avery have any plans to follow in her mother’s footsteps and dip her toe into the reality world? Keep reading after the jump to find out!
Avery Singer is an accomplished career woman
It appears Avery Singer is on the fast track to a career in finance. Per Heavy, Avery graduated from the University of Virginia with a degree in economics and a minor in sociology. Upon graduation, Avery moved back to New York City and eventually landed a job at Neuberger Berman, an investment management firm, working as an analyst. According to the company’s website, the firm “manages a range of equity, fixed income, private equity and hedge fund strategies on behalf of institutions, advisors and individual investors worldwide.” That sounds like far cry from the entrepreneurial route both of her parents took — and LIGHTYEARS away from her mother’s foray into the reality television world.
According to her LinkedIn profile, Avery also worked at Morgan Stanley for almost two years as a registered associate. And, per the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Avery is deemed a licensed professional in New York and its neighboring state, New Jersey. The organization’s website states that she has passed all four exams required to serve in the securities industry. Quite the busy bee, that Avery! We are sure Ramona is very proud!
Avery Singer 'almost' got expelled from school due to Real Housewives hijinks
While most would be inclined to think that Avery Singer has had it easy growing up as the child of a reality star, it has not been all rainbows and sunshine.
During an appearance on Jenny McCarthy’s Sirius XM show in 2017, Ramona Singer confessed that Avery was “almost” expelled from her prestigious Upper East Side private school, Convent of the Sacred Heart, due to the antics portrayed on the reality show Real Housewives of New York. “My daughter almost got expelled,” Ramona said. “They wanted to expel her from Sacred Heart because of the housewife show. Almost being the keyword there. But why exactly? Ramona claimed that it all had to do with housewife Alex McCord. “Alex, my fellow castmate, bared her breasts in a magazine and they wanted none of that,” Ramona revealed.
Other publications claim, however, that Avery was indeed asked to leave. According to the New York Post, a former Housewives castmate who shall remain nameless said that Ramona was to blame for her daughter being asked to leave. “Ramona embarrassed herself on the show and they thought it was a negative reflection on the school.” Ramona denied that claim.
Avery Singer's parents went through a very public divorce
For Avery Singer, the worst part of having a high-profile mother was likely having her parents divorce in the public eye. Many publications and tabloids covered the affair Avery’s dad, Mario Singer, engaged in and the subsequent divorce that followed. But it was Ramona Singer herself who opted to write about the very personal matter in her memoir, Life on the Ramona Coaster. And with it, she also included a letter Avery wrote to her father in which she essentially raked him over the coals for his poor choices.
Avery wrapped the letter by saying, “This whole thing is an embarrassment to Mommy and me, and you have not once thought about how it would affect us. I am ashamed of you… You are my father, but you haven’t been acting much like one. It is time for you to fix the damage.” OUCH.
Luckily, Avery and her father were able to reconcile and, amid the coronavirus pandemic, Avery, Mario, and Ramona even quarantined together in Florida. Co-parenting at it’s finest — though we are not sure it is still considered “co-parenting” when the child is a grown adult. Either way, good for them!
