I’ve always wondered what happens to the Real Housewiveswho get booted from their shows before they’re ready. In my head, there’s some sort of former Housewives support group that they all attend. Maybe there’s a group chat where they talk shit about the current cast members.
Being a Real Housewife is pretty tough. Aside from the attention and paychecks, there is a lot of drama and scrutiny to deal with being in the public eye. Living that post-Real Housewives life can be even worse. The women have the same scrutiny, but (typically) less funds to alleviate their problems.
There are certain photos that have become the norm when scrolling through Instagram feed in the summer. Just like your friends, plenty of reality stars are hitting the beach, lounging by the pool, posing on pool floats, and kicking it on boats. And just like your friends, plenty of them made sure to document those occasions and share photos on Instagram- of course.
Since then, we haven’t heard much about the divorce proceedings. This could be because Lizzie has stayed away from the spotlight. After all, she was only a Real Housewife for just one season, so her personal life isn’t on display as much as other former Housewives. Or maybe we haven’t heard much about the divorce because it’s not actually happening?
2017 has been a banner year for the cursed reality TV marriage. It seemed like every time we blinked another reality star filed for divorce!
Some were predictable (ahem Luann de Lesseps and Shannon Beador), while others came as a complete surprise (like Little Women: LA‘s Briana Renee FINALLY kicking sleazy Matt Ericson to the curb or Dr. Jackie Walter‘s husband being caught cheating). And in the middle there were a whole host of other unlucky in love really stars. Including a who a few who actually tied the knot ON TV – only to split in front of the cameras as well.
Below is our rundown of 2017’s reality star divorces. Here’s hoping for many less in 2018!
I feel like I didn’t really get a chance to know Lizzie Rosvsek during her first (and only) season as a full-time cast member on Real Housewives of Orange County and apparently I’m not the only one who felt that way since her divorce filing fell under the radar for over two months. Wow. That’s long time.
Lizzie filed for divorced from her husband Christian Rovsek on October 19, so how are we just finding out about it now? Was an intern making the rounds with a search through a Real Housewives of Orange County alumni database just hoping for some legal updates? I have no idea how this is making news now, but at least her family had some privacy for a couple months.
Vicki is very adamant about the rumors that Tamra’s husband Eddie Judge is “secretly gay” and that Shannon Beador’s husband David Beador “beats her.” No one is willing to speak to each other, let alone film together. There are some strong feelings of animosity between these women and Tamra is not shy sharing her opinion after the Eddie bashing that went down at Vicki‘s birthday party.
