During her first season of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Elizabeth Lyn Vargas found herself caught in a lot of lies. Did she rent her house out for money and actually live in a nearby condo? Did she actually buy a Ferrari just to donate it? What’s the deal with her boyfriend, Jimmy, anyway? None of her stories added up and the other women definitely caught on. Someone call Vince Neil!
During the first part of the reunion, Braunwyn Windham-Burke brought up the fact that she and Elizabeth’s ex, Bernt Bodal, were friends in some way. Braunwyn claimed her friend was friends with him and his new “fiance” Michelle Fox. Apparently, no one besides Braunwyn knew the couple was engaged, and she felt that was the appropriate time to break the news.
Last week, Page Six posted on Instagram about the love triangle, and Michelle was quick to get her side of the story out there! One commenter said that Elizabeth wasn’t over Bodal, to which Michelle replied, “that is why we have a cease and desist letter (x2).” She claimed Elizabeth was making “highly defamatory comments” about Bodal that were not true and requested that she focus on her “cult” storyline instead.
Michelle also spoke to Page Six about the situation and said, “We have been through a lot with her and it’s none of her business.” She said Elizabeth’s behavior was disgusting and requested that she stop contacting him so they can all move on.
What else will we learn about Elizabeth Lyn Vargas during the Real Housewives of Orange County reunion?
Michelle did confirm the couple was not engaged. Where that information came from (cough Braunwyn cough) we aren’t sure, but it’s possible Brauwnyn was just trying to make Elizabeth feel bad. Or look stupid. Either way, Michelle sounds pressed about the situation. If she continues to talk to gossip rags about Elizabeth, is she any better than Elizabeth? If everyone is happy and satisfied, let’s all just move on with our lives!
Also, lest we forget Mr. Bernt Bodal allegedly got another woman pregnant after claiming he did not want a family with Elizabeth. He apparently left Elizabeth for this woman and their marriage ended shortly after. Michelle might think she hit the jackpot, but there’s something fishy about Bodal, and it isn’t just his seafood empire. All three of these people seem cuckoo for cocoa puffs and we love it!
The Real Housewives of Orange County is on Bravo every Wednesday at 9 PM.
