"At this time, Gordon and I are separated, but my family is my number one priority, and I am committed to doing whatever it takes to make sure we are okay," Mia told PEOPLE while sharing news of their status after an RHOP trailer hinted at tensions rising. "We ask that you respect our privacy and give us the time and space to figure things out."

In the teaser clip, costar Ashley Darby was grilled over marrying for cash, and she put Mia back in the hot seat before asking if she married Gordon for his money. Mia fired back at Darby, claiming she "might" have.

Mia also confessed that in the past, she once "retained a divorce attorney" during a difficult point in their marriage.

"The reason why we became friends is because we partnered and served on the same board for a non-profit organization to raise money for Haiti," Mia told E! News in 2021 about how they crossed paths. "We were raising money for the cause. One of the ladies, one of the original founders of the organization, she worked there — not as an entertainer, but in the admin office and so she did use the facility in order to raise money."

Mia joined the franchise back in season 6, giving a peek inside of her stunning penthouse apartment before moving into a $10,000-per-month rental house the following season. Earlier this year, she revealed their latest relocation.

"One thing about me, I never stay down for long," she continued. "Minor setback!"
