Lizzie: "I Can't Blame Shannon For Doing What She Did"

Lizzie weighs in on the email controversy between Shannon and Heather.

By Lizzie Rovsek

It's finally summer!! I hope everyone had a great weekend! I love summertime; the days are long, the nights are warm and that laid-back feeling is in the air. I am looking forward to some traveling and time spent with family and friends.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Orange County on  Peacock and the Bravo App.

This week’s episode is intense, to say the least. For me, watching the episode brought me more clarity to Shannon’s situation regarding the email from her husband, David. During the time all this drama was going down I heard everyone’s side of the story, but was still confused as to what was really happening. I didn’t know exactly what went down. What I knew was that Shannon had confided in Tamra about an email. I knew that Shannon was upset that Heather was talking about her and the supposed email. I didn’t know what exactly Shannon had disclosed to Tamra and I didn’t know exactly what happened when Shannon confronted Heather. I saw Shannon very upset, but I did not know the extent of it all. I really did not think that Tamra would have told Heather about the email. Everyone knows Shannon and Heather don’t have the best relationship; and for all obvious reasons, telling Heather about Shannon’s situation does not add up to a good idea. However it happened.

I really do wish Shannon didn’t go to Heather’s house to confront her. That obviously didn’t go over well. However, that happened too. I am not directly involved with this situation, but because Shannon and Heather both shared their side of the story with me, and because I care about them both, I feel the need to comment on it. I really feel that the issue is between Shannon and Tamra, Shannon and David, and not Shannon and Heather.


I can’t blame Shannon for doing anything that she did. When you are upset, you are emotional and you just want answers. My heart goes out to Shannon because she felt betrayed by a friend and knew that people were talking about her marriage. Neither of those things are good and it’s scary when you don’t really know where to turn or who to talk to.

This week you briefly see me at my doctor’s office. It’s no secret that Christian and I have two boys and that we want another baby. I think it would be so much fun to have a little girl and of course we talk about the supposed ‘tricks’ for gender selection. I got pregnant with both of my boys very easily and had great pregnancies. I would never ‘mess’ with God and try to get a girl scientifically. I completely believe in fate and that God has a plan for our family, but you sometimes wonder if there is any truth to the theories out there on gender selection. Many of the theories out there are from doctors; i.e. Dr. Shettles, so it was interesting for me to hear from my doctor that they have all been disproven. I would be happy with either a boy or a girl. Christian and I have always wanted three kids. I think three boys would be so fun; I really love being a mom to boys!
