Mia Thornton isn’t engaged to a new man — but she is sporting a diamond sparkler just one month after news broke that she and husband Gordon Thornton split.
“We are separated, illegally separated [sic] and it’s going to take time to get a divorce,” Mia, 38, exclusively told Us Weekly at BravoCon on Saturday, November 4, of her and Gordon’s breakup status.
After Us noticed the Real Housewives of the Potomac star wearing a diamond ring, Mia shared “there is someone special that’s on the horizon.” She noted that she’s not engaged but told Us, “I am committed.”

When asked whether her giant rock was a “commitment ring,” Mia nodded her head, saying, “Yes. I’m not available. So don’t come in my DMs.”
The Bravo star noted that while her estranged husband, 70, was “not so happy” at first that she’s moving on, she explained that “every day gets easier” after going public with their divorce.
Mia added that Gordon is “actually dating” himself, and the former couple are “really focusing on being good coparents” for their kids right now.
