Lizzie Rovsek Talks Tamra Barney’s Betrayal, Friendship With Shannon Beador

Lizzie Rovsek might be new to The Real Housewives of Orange County, but that doesn’t mean she’s going to back down when one of her co-stars treats her poorly — and we couldn’t be more grateful! This Kentucky-born beauty definitely isn’t afraid to speak her mind, especially when it comes to frenemy Tamra Barney!

When the ladies went to Bali, things got really heated, really fast, especially after Lizzie told co-star Shannon Beador all of the mean things Tamra had ever said about her. Low blow, Lizzie! “I am not proud of opening up to Shannon about all the things Tamra had told me about her, but I SNAPPED! A light bulb totally went off in my head and it all started to make sense,” Lizzie wrote in her Bravo blog.

But what sparked this whole thing? Apparently, Lizzie came to a realization about her friendship with Tamra — namely that Tamra was only pretending to be her friend, and was going to stab her in the back, just like she did to Shannon. “The bitch just did the SAME thing to me!” Lizzie wrote. “Are you kidding me?”

Lizzie wanted to be friends with Shannon because of their shared experiences being betrayed by Tamra. “I do try my best to stay out of drama, I do,” Lizzie wrote. “However, I will stand up for what's right. It wasn't right what she did to Shannon, and it's not right what she is doing to me. I feel very bad that I never really gave Shannon a chance. I didn't invest in a relationship with her. To be quite honest, I thought she was crazy with all her outbursts. I am totally starting to get it now — because I'm starting to have the outbursts too! It's infuriating to get a story twisted on you and to have words put into your mouth.”

Do you think Tamra was planning to betray Lizzie? Did Lizzie behave badly at her birthday party? Sound off in the comments!
