Prom disaster averted!
Real Housewives of New York star Ramona Singer‘s daughter Avery attended her first prom Friday and it didn’t go as smoothly as she’d hoped.
“I actually had a bit of a situation before the prom on Friday,” Avery tells Us Weekly. “On Wednesday evening, my original prom date, who is my best guy friend at school, called me to tell me that he just found out he had a tennis states game at 5. This meant he would miss preprom for the photos and most of prom. I was freaking out!”
Avery tried calling all her guy friends to find a last-minute date, but they all had sport commitments.
“This was the only time I wished boys were not athletic,” she joked. Eventually, however, she found a date. “On Thursday night, I found out a friend of mine from school, Evan, did not have anyone to go with, so we decided to go together.” she tells Us. “He did not have a suit or a tux, but it all worked out in the end. Talk about spontaneous!”
But it was Avery’s dad Mario who made her first prom really special. Mario kissed his only child on the forehead for an adorable photo before she headed to prom.
“The bond that I have with my father is very special,” Avery, who had “major input” on the custom designed white dress she wore by Kimberly Towers, tells Us.
Of course, Ramona, was very proud of her daughter as well. “The pre-prom party where photos were taken were at a private estate and they had about 250 people!” the 55-year-old Bravo star shared.
She also tweeted Friday, “With Mario headed to Avery Singer pre prom party. Can’t believe she’s going to her first prom. No amount of photos will be enough!”
Ramona is returning for season five of The Real Housewives of New York City on Monday, June 4 on Bravo at 9 p.m. ET.
