In a recent interview with Tony’s Tea Corner podcast, Lizzie gives an update on her status with the current OC housewives:
“I love Vicki and I love Kelly. Vicki went through a really rough couple of years, but she’s been a good friend to me. The turning point I had with Vicki was when I was in the dressing room for the reunion, and she popped her head in and said ‘Come on girls, let’s go out there and tell the truth.’”
Hm…truth and Vicki don’t often go hand in hand so I’m intrigued that this was Lizzie’s ‘turning point’ with her.
Lizzie also spilled the beans on a feud she had with an ‘older housewife’ who iced her out. Now that she revealed that she was on great terms with Vicki that pretty much leaves Tamra as this mystery wife as the two also had issues while she was on the show. Per Lizzie:
“I was actually hired full-time. I was not hired as a friend. We filmed a lot of stuff, it was an amazing year for me. I don’t really know exactly what happened. A showrunner came up to me a few times and said ‘I’m just gonna be honest with you. There’s an older housewife on the show that says you do not want to be here.’ I said ‘who said that?’ and he didn’t tell me who it was.”
We all remember that Lizzie called Tamra ‘insecure’ due to Eddie stating he would ‘shag’ her during a game of ‘marry, shag, kill.’ I think it’s pretty obvious that she is referring to Tamra on this one. She certainly seemed to hint it was as she said her only regret from the show was not speaking out during the reunion when Tamra mentioned her children:
“The only thing I regret is letting Tamra talk about my kids on the reunion. I should have stood up for myself there.”
As for her marriage which seems to be on/off depending on the week? Well she wasn’t exactly straight forward on that either:
“I’ve been through a lot. I know I’ve been really quiet about my personal life – the past year or two has been hard. I’ve been through some sad times, but right now it’s on the upswing and I see the light. I’ve dealt with a lot of things.”
Lizzie cryptically addressed rumors that she is still wearing her wedding band stating:
“I don’t wear a gold wedding ring. My wedding band is diamonds all the way around. So, if you see a gold band that’s not my wedding ring.”
Personally I liked Lizzie and thought she made for a better housewife than some of the ‘wives currently on the show. I wouldn’t mind seeing her come back especially if she is single. I’m guessing Tamra Judge probably feels differently but we will have to just wait and see!
