The Real Housewives of Orange County is premiering next week, Monday April 14th! And we are in for a cast change up! With Alexis Bellino, Lydia McLaughlin, and Gretchen Rossi fired, Bravo is bringing in some new blood for us viewers. Lizzie Rovsek, a former pageant girl and current swimwear designer, and Shannon Beador, a holistic and toxic free mother, will be joining this season’s cast of RHOC. Lizzie spoke to Wetpaint and gave them the dirt on who she got along with, including Brooks! Check out what Lizzie had to tell Wetpaint…
What made you decide to sign on for the show?
Lizzie Rovsek: I was approached, so it wasn’t something I went out looking for. I was a little hesitant at first, but then I thought that maybe things happen for a reason. I decided that this could be a really fun adventure.
Having watched the show beforehand, did you have expectations for the other cast members before meeting them?
Yea. There were certain women that I thought that I would really like at first. I found that the one woman that I thought I would really hit it off with was really insulting when I met her. And then there was another Housewife that I was kind of warned against, and I ended up hitting it off with her right from the beginning!
Which Housewife surprised you the most?
I had seen the show before, so I had an idea of what most of them were like. In the beginning, Tamera Barney and I really hit it off, and I had a lot of fun with her. I didn’t know if she would like me, since she’s been the one fighting on the show a lot. We actually hit it off and had a lot of fun together.
Have you met Vicki’s on-again-off-again boyfriend Brooks? What did you think of him?
I like Brooks, my husband likes Brooks. I’m from Kentucky, and when I hear a Southern accent it’s a little comforting. From what we’ve seen, he seems to be a very nice, laidback guy. And he seems to really love Vicki.
Anything else we should know about Season 9?
Things change and everything’s not what it seems to be.
I’m surprised Tamra didn’t try to fight with her seeing as Lizzie is the newbie this season. With RHOA ending soon, and RHONY being a little lackluster, BRING ON the OC Housewives! Are you ready for RHOC?! Do you think Lizzie will be a good addition?!
