Marysol Patton married Philippe Pautesta-Herder in an intimate ceremony in Aspen for the world to see on a season 1 episode of Real Housewives of Miami. While the show has just returned for its second season, their marriage has not. The pair has split, and as fans of the show will see on the new season, Marysol is busy trying to move on.
Marysol Patton opened up about her split in a recent interview. “You’re going to see me going through a very difficult transition in my personal life with my now-ex-husband,” she tells Wetpaint of what fans can expect to see on the show. “It plays out in the show. You’ll see the separation, the going back and forth and deciding whether we would get divorced, but in the end, we just get divorced.”
Marysol, who denies that the show had any influence over her split, admits that she and Philippe were just too different. “I’m all about work, work, work, work, and I put my work first, and it just didn’t gel. We were in two different places, but we still love each other. He comes to all our family and holiday functions, we talk all the time, and we work together, but as a married couple, I wasn’t a good wife for him and he wasn’t the right husband for me.”
Although she wants to be married and have a family, works comes first right now. “My career is very important to me. Deep down in my heart I want to be married and have a family, but I don’t make the time for it because I’m always working. It’s something I desire but I don’t pursue.”
As for how Mama Elsa dealt with the news of the split, Marysol explains, “She really loves Phillippe but she thinks the divorce was the right thing. She thinks I’ll get married again, so stay tuned.”
Real Housewives of Miami season 2 airs every Thursday night at 9/8c.
