Talk of a text message Brandi Glanville sent regarding Marisa’s marriage sparked heated discussions that culminated in a dramatic confrontation in the Season 3 finale between Marisa, Brandi, Yolanda Foster, and Faye Resnick.
Marisa managed to make it out unscathed, but was the kerfuffle enough to dissuade her from returning for another season of RHoBH?
Wetpaint Entertainment talked with Marisa at the Star Magazine Hollywood Rocks party on April 4, where she spoke to us about her Season 3 regrets and what husband Dean Zanuck thought of her comments on the show!
Wetpaint Entertainment: So you're out partying tonight?
Marisa Zanuck: Yes. All my girlfriends are meeting me. I'm the only Housewife.
Season 4 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills — do you want to return, why or why not?
I would like to return for season 4. I really felt I was just getting my feet wet in season 3 and getting a feel for all the women and the relationships. I always tread lightly in the beginning, and then I jump in. Season 4 would see me really jump in with the women and get dirty.
You like the drama?
I'm comfortable with it. I'm not a confrontational person. But if I do believe strongly in something, I will definitely speak up. I'm comfortable in it.
Is there something you wish they showed more of you on Season 3?
I wish they would have shown my husband and I really being loving with each other and with our kids. The audience and public didn't get to see that, and it's a big part of my life. They only saw me saying how other guys were hot, and stuff like that. That's one side of me. But I also love my husband.
Was your husband happy with the show?
Yeah, my husband was fine with it. He's a very easy going guy, and nothing really bothers him. I'm very lucky that way.
Is there anything you would have done differently?
I would have given them more of a show, that's the only thing. Even though I eased into it, I would have given a little bit more. It's my style to ease in. I probably would have danced on the stripper pole like all the other women, instead of sitting on the floor.
Are you watching Lisa Vanderpump on Dancing with the Stars?
I think she's doing amazing. I would love to do that show as well. I think it's a great opportunity for her to learn how to dance amazingly. I think she's doing well and looks fantastic.
