Sidora told Page Six that she spent time away from her husband with their two children in Chicago after Pittman was caught texting a female assistant who offered him a massage. In a video clip shared by The Neighborhood Talk, she added that her husband made her feel crazy while denying any wrongdoing.
“I thought we were in a better place. Then, last summer, there were some things that happened,” said Sidora.“I went to Chicago with the kids for a while. And he ended up showing up in Chicago to say, ‘OK, I need my family back, stop playing.’”
The “RHOA” star went on to say that she is still piecing together the details of her husband’s communications with the assistant.
“Honestly, I was waiting for her to pop up!” laughed Sidora. “It was a whole thing of trying to get to the bottom of it and I’m still trying to figure out like, ‘OK, is it resolved? Are we good now? Is she gone forever?’ I don’t know, because I don’t know this woman.”
“Girl, just leave,” responded one reader. “There’s someone out there that won’t put you thru this s—t. Ralph must be related to Kirk.”
One Instagram user accused Pittman of toxic manipulation. “I understand wanting your ‘family together’ but it’s giving toxic/manipulation.”
Another noted a thought had by many and replied, “Y’all done moved on to the assistant meanwhile I’m still stuck on Tampa,” a reference to when Pittman disappeared for several days and ignored calls from his wife.
In one episode of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” during Sidora’s first season on the reality show, Pittman refused to tell his wife where he was or what he’d been doing during the disappearance except to say that he went to the beach in Tampa, Florida, for refuge. Another reader replied, “Sis do you ever know what happened when he was gone for 3 days?”
Sidora later said Pittman shared more details during counseling about his Tampa trip, including hotel and dining receipts. The “RHOA” star said she loves her husband and gave credit to Pittman as a father while adding she is committed to staying married. She also added that she and Pittman “stay in counseling.'”
“We literally just stay in counseling because I always think I’m right and he always thinks he’s right. We are pushing through and we’re really showing what a relationship can look like when you choose to stay together and really be vulnerable and work through your various issues.”
