Marisa Zanuck: The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Ladies “Talk S**t” Behind Each Others’ Backs
Before she ever appeared on the show, Marisa Zanuck was already bringing a touch of drama to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She called out Lisa Vanderpump (whom she said is nicer on camera than off) and Taylor Armstrong (whom Marisa called “insecure”) in early November, but she’s not sorry — though she is a bit concerned about what her castmates say when she’s not around.
Reality Tea interviewed the new Housewife, who admitted, "I'm petrified, honestly. I don't know what the other women say behind my back. A lot of the times these women are nice to you when you're standing there and then they talk s**t about you behind your back. I'm not that person. If I talk s**t about you I talk s**t to you and I won't like you off camera either."
Could she be making another dig at Lisa? Marisa clarified, “And I don't 'not like' Lisa or Taylor; I just have opinions.” According to the newcomer, “There's been little things with Lisa that she did to me off camera or on camera and then I ignored it. I would not ignore it next season but I let it go this time because I was the new girl. So I did let things go with people."
There was also a bit of a learning curve. “It was completely shocking,” Marisa says, “but it was a s**tload of fun.” The most shocking part? Lisa, once again. Marisa was surprised, because she thought she’d get along famously with the witty Brit. But Marisa says of Lisa, “She's very nice on camera. She's very nice and kind on camera. And she's nice to the people she likes off camera."
Above all, Marisa just wants viewers to realize what a loving wife and mother she is. “I have a housekeeper,” Marisa says. “I don't have a nanny. My husband and I do all the driving. We all travel together. We're very hands-on parents. So to me, those are the most important things."
Marisa will be introduced to the ladies and the Bravo audience in Season 3, Episode 7, which airs December 17th. We can’t wait to see how everyone responds to the opinionated, yet down-to-earth, addition.
