Drew Sidora spoke to PEOPLE exclusively sharing what her breaking point was in her marriage to her EX. Ralph Pittman.
In the court of public opinion, there were a plethora of reasons people had about why Drew should divorce…..but when you are in the situation, things are different.
I actually kinda feel sorry for Drew Sidora… she should’ve filed for divorce first! Ralph really is a piece of work #RHOA

Drew said there was a moment, where she said ‘enough was enough’, but it came after things started to play out on camera.
“Well everything in the petition I obviously stand by and it was just a culmination of things that should not happen in a marriage,” Sidora, 38, explains. “And I think the inability to own it, the inability to apologize, the inability to work through it, the inability to care about my emotional state and wanting to work and heal that, was very challenging.”
In March, Sidora lodged an explosive set of allegations against her estranged partner, including claims he was a “serial cheater and adulterer” who abused her both mentally and financially and even got “physically aggressive” with her at one point.
According to Sidora, things reached a “boiling point” when some of their marital issues “started to happen on camera” and she began to feel “embarrassment on top of what we were dealing with behind closed doors.”
“[It was] definitely the breaking point and enough is enough,” she confesses. “And I didn’t see that coming. Of course I was forever, but it was like [there was] nothing else left for me to hold onto because the behavior and inappropriateness just never stopped. It was just too much.”
Despite the nature of her allegations, the Step Up actress reveals she is “hopeful for an amicable divorce.”
“I’m hoping for a great co-parenting partner. I’m hoping for us to come out of this and be able to be friends and be respectful,” she continues. “I’m hoping for my kids to be happy and just to really see what life has for me on the other side of all this. It’s hard to imagine right now, but I would love to just be completely whole moving forward.”
When news of their separation broke Pittman released an exclusive statement to PEOPLE about the end of his marriage.
“Love is a beautiful thing,” he wrote at the time. “Unfortunately we have made the difficult decision to move on to our next chapters, independent of each other. Drew and I have decided to file for divorce. We have three amazing young children, and their mindset and growth is what is most important. As we navigate this difficult time, I ask that you please respect our privacy.”
Sidora later shared her own statement with PEOPLE.
“After eight years of wholeheartedly fighting for my marriage, I have made the agonizing decision to release my husband with love,” she said. “Although Ralph and I have decided to move forward separately, the hope is to remain friends so that we can co-parent responsibly. In spite of our very public life, I am asking for privacy during this difficult time as my children and I learn how to navigate through our new beginnings.”
We wish them both the best.
