A new group has taken a bite out of the Big Apple, but don't expect Sai De Silva's husband to be a regular on The Real Housewives of New York season 14.

Joining the new RHONY cast—all of whom were well-received on their premiere, which aired on Sunday, July 16 on Bravo—Sai is a 42-year-old wife and mommy who runs the lifestyle site, Scout the City, which has gotten the attention of exclusive brands like Dior and Bentley. It covers everything from non-screen toys for kids to fairytale-like dresses for women. She even features a  few cameos of her little ones, London and Rio, on the site. However, their dad is on the quiet side and his face is never shown on Scout the City. Heck, he's not even active on social media!

Given that Sai is so well-known in the media realm, especially as a lifestyle blogger, you'd think we'd get an up-close-and-personal look at the man who has been in her life for 14-plus years, but the two are a bit private—something that doesn't happen very often on reality TV. So who is Sai de Silva's husband and what do we know about him? Let's find out.

Who is Sai De Silva's husband and will he be on 'RHONY' or not?

Originally, we were going to get a sneak peek inside Sai De Silva's marriage to husband David Craig, as promised during a chat with Hoda and Jenna on the TODAY Show.

“This is going to be a big deal. Everyone’s going to see him,” she said on the program. “He’s not on social media so he has no idea what people are saying, what anyone is discussing. He’s just showing his face and showing support for his wife.”

But, according to a chat on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen following the season premiere, David will remain on the DL, though he does appear in the first episode. Looks like we'll have to keep a watchful eye as the season continues to see if he makes any other cameos. According to multiple sources, he is currently retired and runs the family home when Sai is traveling for work. He also has a 22-year-old from a previous marriage. 

Something tells us we won't get too much insight, and given that Sai has written on Scout in the City that David "likes his privacy," we have a feeling this is a behavior he's planning to stick to. 

"In a world where we share everything, it’s nice to have something that is private in my life," she wrote on her blog. "It keeps my sanity and I also think having a little mystery is fun. However, he is very involved when it comes to his family and I think he should win an award for father of the year!"

But the women who are frequently behind the screen are sure to keep our attention with their behavior, so don't worry about lack of drama in his absence—that will not be an issue.

Fans react to Sai and the new 'RHONY' season 14 cast:

Whether or not David makes frequent appearances, fans are definitely pleased with the refreshing new cast of the Bravo franchise, even though they worried earlier this year that RHONY was canceled

The group features vibrant, creative New Yorkers who extend beyond the Upper East Side and feel authentic to NYC 2023. But of course, you will definitely be catching some drama amongst these ladies—it is The Real Housewives, after all. Judging from Twitter's views, these newbies are a thumbs up. (See below for fans' reactions.) 

Bravo head honcho Andy Cohen said in an "Ask Andy" segment on Watch What Happens Live: "They’re super fashionable. The things that they are arguing about are as ridiculous as early RHONY. I think it’s going to be a different show. It’s so hard because everyone is going to compare it to RHONY, which was so perfect. And I hope this is perfect in a totally different way.”

And yes, there's definitely going to be ups and downs. In fact, it already appears we have a friendship breakup on the horizon because of Sai and Brynn—a fissure that took place once cameras stopped rolling. While specifics aren't available, it appeared as if Brynn had a few issues keeping business to herself.

“She’s a fun girl. She’s a lot of fun. As you can see, she has this huge bubbly personality [and] she’s great for going out with, but let’s just say she can’t hold a secret," Sai told US Weekly

We're glad to be tuning in! Catch Sai de Silva and co. in The Real Housewives of New York on Sundays at 9pm ET on Bravo and next-day on Peacock.
