Alexia Nepola is in the throes of accepting the end of her marriage.

In an upcoming appearance on her Real Housewives of Miami costar Marysol Patton's Ay Por Favor podcast, the reality star opened up about her estranged husband Todd Nepola's decision to file for divorce earlier this month.

"For the first week, for the first two weeks — actually, still today, it's been three weeks, and I'm still going back in my head like, 'What happened?'" Alexia said while holding back tears in a teaser shared to Instagram.

Though she considers herself a "positive" person and tries to "think about all the beautiful times" they shared, the Bravolebrity, 56, revealed that she was experiencing the five stages of grief.

"And I don't want to have any anger, but I understand that anger is also one of the grieving stations... Oh, stages," she continued. "Yeah. I don't even know what I'm saying. Because I find myself lost."

Despite their decision to terminate their marriage, in another clip, Alexia added that the couple "love each other" and a lack of love wasn't the reason behind their split.

"it's just very sad, I guess we couldn't figure out a way to fix things, and that's why I was in such shock because I'm a fighter, I fight right?" she said. "I was never expecting that, I thought things were good, so it's been really shocking and I'm devastated."
