Fans are reacting to the news that former “Real Housewives” star Joanna Krupa and her husband Douglas Nunes have split. On March 27, 2023, TMZ reported that Nunes filed divorce papers in Los Angeles, citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split.
The court documents, which have been obtained by Heavy, list the former couple’s original date of separation as January 2, 2023. Hours after the divorce was reported, Krupa released a statement on Instagram.
“My husband and I have made a joint decision to get separated. We have a private agreement between us that is our business and we are moving forward as friends and still live daily as a family for our daughter whom we both place before ourselves. For the sake of my family I will not comment further on this only to say each of us is committed to assuring the other’s happiness so we can be the best parents possible as we move forward,” she wrote.
This is Krupa’s second divorce; she was previously married to businessman Romain Zago.
Heavy has reached out to a rep for Krupa for comment.

“We could only wish. She was so evil lol,” a fourth Reddit user added.
Krupa left RHOM after season 3 and didn’t return to the show when it was rebooted, mainly because she moved to Los Angeles.
“In 8 years I have grown a lot as a person and my priorities in life have changed especially after having an amazing little girl. I love to work, I have great and long-lasting TV shows in Poland, and continue doing other projects,” she told TMZ in 2021.
“Women need to uplift and support each other and I would never at this point in my life consider doing a show that would cause me stress and engage in unnecessary drama. I wish everyone luck and huge success that will be part of the reboot,” she added.
