Shannon Beador and Elizabeth Lyn Vargas of RHOC both admit that they have camera-sized boyfriends. Shannon Beador told EW that boyfriend John Janssen was not excited to appear on season 15. “He wasn’t excited to be in the show,” she laughed. “He’s pretty private. But you know, I’ve let it all go, for better or worse, since I started the show seven years ago.
“And he understood that relationships have been part of my journey, and when I’m in a relationship with someone, I have to show it,” she added. “And I think he was very sincere when he filmed with me, so I’m thankful he did.”
While Shannon Beador’s boyfriend wasn’t happy to be in the show, Elizabeth Lyn Vargas told Showbiz Cheat Sheet that she was lucky that her boyfriend Jimmy appeared in front of the camera at all.
RHOC: Elizabeth Lyn Vargas Said Her Divorce Plays Out This Season Too
Elizabeth Lyn Vargas said all the stress this season came at once. “It’s like my divorce and then COVID,” she said. “And then so much love and then so much hate that it was just hard to navigate mentally.”
“There’s definitely some conflict throughout the season,” she remarked. “I went through a massive divorce, almost two billion dollars. And I had to go to court. I mean, that’s insane. Having cameras around and trying to meet new people. And then COVID struck!”
Elizabeth Lyn Vargas and her ex-husband finished their divorce in July. She shared her thoughts in an Instagram story. “You know, I don’t know how I feel today,” she said, US Weekly reports.
“I’m excited, but I’m sad and I – it’s the end of an era – I was with that guy for 20 years. 17 years, but divorced for three. 20 years in total of my life and I’m happy, but it’s a failure…. I paid an arm and a leg to get divorced and to get what I thought I needed… and here we move on to a new phase in my life and I am excited”.
