Real Housewives of Orange County: Who Is Lizzie Rovsek?

We're thrilled about the Real Housewives of Orange County Season 9 premiere on April 14, 2014, since it will introduce us to the show's three new cast members. So what do we know about one of those new ladies, Lizzie Rovsek?

Lizzie, 34, was born in Kentucky and crowned Miss Kentucky Teen USA in 1998. She competed in Miss Teen USA that year but did not place, and the crown was won by Vanessa Minnillo, who is now married to Nick Lachey.

Lizzie won the Miss Kentucky USA crown in 2002. She attended the University of Kentucky, earning her degree in Design, Merchandising, and Textiles. In 2009, she married Orange County-based real estate executive Christian Rovsek, and they have two sons, Preston and Kingston.

Lizzie now owns her own swimwear business called Sun Kitten Swimwear by Lizzie, which specializes in high-end pieces featuring jewel-encrusted swimsuits. And business must be going well for Lizzie, as she is worth a reported $25 million. Yowza!

We can't wait to meet Lizzie and her family. And we're curious to discover which ladies she gets along with... and which ones she doesn't!

Are you looking forward to meeting Lizzie? And do you think you'll like her?
