While some people go an entire lifetime without seeing any of their dreams come true, beauty queen, Lizzie Rosvek, has been able to watch several of hers come true. Born in California, Rovsek calls Kentucky home, and she has been competing in beauty pageants since she was just a teenager. Over the years, she has risen through the beauty pageant ranks, and now she’s also been getting other opportunities to take advantage of the spotlight including a stint on reality TV as a short-lived case member of The Real Housewives o Orange County. Although her looks have gotten her started, she seems determined to prove that she deserves all the attention. In fact, it looks like she might just be on her way to becoming a household name. Here are 10 things you didn’t know about Lizzie Rovsek.
She’s been accused of being a mean drunk
Everybody has different reactions to alcohol and apparently, when Lizzie Rovsek knocks back one too many, she can start to get a little feisty. In a video that has since been deleted, RHOC veteran, Tamra Judge, accused Rovsek of being a ‘mean drunk.’ However, if you’ve ever seen RHOC, you know that Tamra usually has something to say about everyone, so whether or not its true is up for debate.
She dated Nick Lachey
Long before Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson were one of MTV’s first reality TV couples, Lizzie Rovsek and Nick Lachey were an item. But apparently, Rovsek and Lachey also dated after he and Simpson split, and according to the rumor mill – there was a bit of a feud going on between the women. However, all three of them have moved on and seem to be perfectly happy with the way things turned out.
She has beauty and brains
Although most people say that it’s not possible to have it all, Lizzie Rovsek is proof that you can have it all and then some. Although her looks have been largely responsible for helping her get opportunities, Rovsek also has the brains to match. Not only does she have an interest in biology, but according to Rovsek, she was the class president and the valedictorian her of senior class in high school. She then went on to attend the University of Kentucky.
She has a lot of opinions on the RHOC
Making her debut on the 9th season of RHOC, Lizzie Rovsek initially seemed like she would be a very interesting newcomer. Unfortunately; however, she never got enough time to shine, and her story line just kind of got lost in the shuffle. During the 10th season, she returned, but not as one of the main housewives, although that didn’t stop her from giving plenty of commentary. Rovsek blogged regularly about what was going on on the show, and has been very vocal about castmate, Vicki Gunvalson’s relationship with Brook Ayers, who has allegedly been lying about being stricken with cancer.
She designs swimsuits
Although being a beauty queen and a reality TV star would be enough for some people, Lizzie Rovsek is aiming for more. In 2010 she founded her own swimsuit like called Sun Kitten Swimwear. According to the company’s website, “The current collection reflects a ‘Back to Basics’ theme featuring the LBB (Little Black Bikini) along with other Earth tones that range from turquoise, snakeskin, denim and fresh & simple white. The Sun Kitten is a flirty, girly, beachy sex kitten. Sun Kitten Swimwear uses luxurious Carvico Italian fabrics and are made with love here in the USA.”
She was Miss Kentucky
In 1998, Lizzie Rovsek got her first major pageant win when she was crowned Miss Kentucky Teen USA. Just four years later in 2002, Rovsek was crowned Miss Kentucky USA, and she represented the state in the Miss USA pageant.
She’s worth an estimated $25 million
According to sources, Lizzie Rovsek has a reported net worth of $25 million dollars. Although it does not directly state how she acquired her wealth, there’s a good chance it’s from her husband’s career in real estate. Either way, Rosvek definitely has more than most reality TV stars will ever make over the course of their careers. If there’s one thing no one can ever say about her, it’s that she’s broke.
She’s a great mom
Although she’s extremely busy with her business and balancing other obligations, Lizzie Rovsek knows that her most important job is being a mother. However, despite her best efforts, she received some criticism when it was revealed that her three-year-old was still wearing diaper. However, even in the wake of criticism, she managed to keep it classy and keep her kids’ best interests at heart.
Her husband is a successful realtor
Lizzie Rovsek’s husband, Christian Rovsek, is a very successful real estate agent in California who has built a fortune. After building his own firm, Rovsek began focusing on “acquiring distressed real estate in highly desirable San Diego neighborhoods.” Aside from that, Christian is also the Vice President of Development for a San Diego charity that helps struggling military families.
She doesn’t do drama
If there’s one thing almost every reality TV star is known for, it’s drama. But Lizzie Rovsek isn’t one to be involved in a lot of messiness. Throughout her time on the show, she’s worked hard to stay out of all of the dramatic situations, and she doesn’t like to see her cast mates caught up in anything negative either. Sadly; however, staying out of drama is probably what caused her to get less camera time on RHOC.
