EXCLUSIVE: Ramona Singer's secret boyfriend REVEALED! The RHONY alumna has been dating financier Bill Luby, 63, for a year - and 'there's even been talk of marriage'
After months of speculation the identity — and very existence — of Ramona Singer's boyfriend has been revealed.
The former Real Housewife of New York, 66, has been spotted packing on the PDA with her mystery man all over the Hamptons this summer.
DailyMail.com can reveal exclusively for the first time that he is New Jersey–based financier William 'Bill' Luby, 63.
It had previously been reported that the man Singer was seen was called 'Bill Kent' though it appears the reality star had used this as an alias to throw people off the scent.
Luby lives in a $1.9million home on the seafront in New Jersey and is the CEO of finance company Seaport Capital.

In recent months, Bill divorced his lawyer wife Eileen O'Hern Luby - the Harvard educated daughter of a Supreme Court judge whom he was married to for over 30 years.
Singer — who appears on the upcoming season of Real Housewives: Ultimate Girls Trip — and Luby celebrated one year together on Labor Day.
Such is Bill's calming influence on Ramona, when she attended an evening hosted by Candace Bushnell at Shanghai nights, Hutong in New York last week, the reality star stuck to water for the entire evening.
'Bill is absolutely smitten' a close friend said. 'She's a lot less erratic. Ever since they began their year long romance after meeting at a party on Labor Day weekend, Ramona has kept his identity private swearing all her friends to secrecy.
'Bill was going through an expensive divorce and naturally wanted to keep their affair a secret. Now he's officially single, their love has grown even more and there's even been talk of marriage.'
They were photographed together at Eugenia Bullock's 25th birthday party in July and again at Amy and Gary Green's the Footprint of Life Gala in Bridgehampton in August.
After a year spent getting to know each other out of the limelight, they appear to be taking steps into the Bravolebrity's very public life.
It had been previously reported that Singer has had a 'mysterious' boyfriend for sometime now - who she has been regularly spotted with around Southampton.
Earlier this year, the reality television star's ex-husband Mario Singer sat down for an exclusive interview with Daily Mail and said his ex's new relationship was 'hot and heavy.'
'I'm going to meet Ramona's new boyfriend for dinner tonight, he's called Bill,' Mario shared at New York's Shanghai at Hutong where he and Ramona were celebrating the launch of their daughter Avery's new concierge business, BachBoss.
Reportedly, Ramona and Bill wanted to keep their relationship quiet while he finalized his divorce.

At least one Housewife picked up on the change in Ramona - Luann de Lesseps, 58.
Back in January during her 'Countess' Cabaret' show in Boston, she said that Ramona had a new man in her life.
However, the mom of one vehemently denied it at the time.
