Lizzie Rovsek got along with Meghan King Edmonds during filming on the 10th season of The Real Housewives of Orange County, but now that the series has wrapped, she appears to have changed her tune. While many of Lizzie Rovsek’s co-stars on the show have doubted Brooks Ayers’ cancer diagnosis, Edmonds has been leading the pack when it comes to dedicating herself to exposing his alleged health lies, and at this point, Lizzie Rovsek appears to have had enough.

Although Lizzie Rovsek wasn’t planning on submitting a Bravo blog regarding the October 12 episode of the show, the season 10 finale, she changed her mind after waking up with Edmonds “causing drama on Twitter, ‘fact checking’ and doing a roll call for everyone that knew of David’s affair.”
“It really rubbed me the wrong way,” Lizzie Rovsek explained on October 13.
Lizzie Rovsek was brought aboard the cast of The Real Housewives of Orange County for season 9 as an official housewife, along with Shannon Beador, replacing Alexis Bellino and Gretchen Rossi, who left the series after season 8. Then, ahead of season 9, it was decided that Lizzie Rovsek’s role would be reduced from a full-time housewife to a “friend” role.

That said, Lizzie Rovsek’s relationship with the women on the show continued, as did her time filming. However, according to Lizzie Rovsek’s blog, she didn’t get much credit for being a supportive friend of Beador after learning of her husband David’s affair. Speaking to fans in her blog, Lizzie Rovsek claimed Beador didn’t even acknowledge that she had opened up to her about her husband’s infidelity. Instead, Beador claimed only Vicki Gunvalson, Heather Dubrow, and Tamra Barney knew about the affair. While Lizzie Rovsek did say that Beador’s failure to mention her name could simply have been the result of her feeling she should only reference the full-time housewives, it hurt her nonetheless.
Lizzie Rovsek continued on to fans, responding to Edmonds’ tweet, in which she hoped to find out which of the wives knew of Beador’s husband’s affair prior to the baptism. According to Lizzie Rovsek, she wouldn’t have believed it if it was presented to her as a rumor, but since she heard it from Beador herself, she knew it to be true, and didn’t “breathe a word about” in the weeks that followed.
“I defended Shannon all season. I think it’s great that she has a new found friendship with Heather and Tamra, but I was there all along. I still am,” Lizzie Rovsek explained.
Lizzie Rovsek also proclaimed her thoughts on Ayers’ cancer diagnosis, claiming that while she agreed with many of her co-stars who claimed there were inconsistencies in Ayers’ statements, it wasn’t her business to “fact check” her friends as Edmonds has done throughout the 10th season of The Real Housewives of Orange County.
“I will believe my friends until the point that I can’t anymore. Whatever is going on with Vicki and Brooks doesn’t have anything to do with this beautiful baptism. If Brooks is lying about something as serious as cancer he will have to suffer because of it. We all sin and we all suffer for our sins, no matter the magnitude. Do I think he is lying about cancer? I will be honest, a lot of stuff doesn’t add up. If he is lying, more than anything, I feel sorry for him. I also feel sorry for Vicki if she has been caught up in a mess of this caliber.”
For more of Lizzie Rovsek’s co-stars, including Gunvalson, Barney, Dubrow and Edmonds, tune into the three-part Real Housewives of Orange County reunion, beginning next Monday night, October 19, at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
