Lizzie Rovsek stopped by Jeff Lewis Live and opened up about why her divorce from ex Christian Rovsek is still ongoing after two years. The Real Housewives of Orange County alum filed for divorce back in 2017 after eight years of marriage.
Lizzie, 40, and Christian, 40, married in 2009 and share two sons together — Kingston, 6, and Preston, 9. In 2018, the estranged couple signed a deal that outlined custody, spousal, and child support. Their marriage, however, still isn't legally dissolved.
“Everything is pretty much finalized besides, we kind of have a family business so that… hasn’t been sorted out, the details of that,” Lizzie revealed to host Jeff Lewis.
The TV personality added that she and Christian began dating when they were 22 and they are still friends despite their split. "It’s not ugly at all. We’re really good friends. We coparent," Lizzie explained. "We’re very close, we’re family still. We have our little boys who are the most important thing. He lives three minutes down the road, I can walk there. It’s very friendly.”
Lizzie shared the reason as to why she and the real estate investor decided to part ways. "Our relationship just kind of fizzled out," she said during the show. "Nothing horrible happened. It’s just kind of sad."
The Kentucky native described that she felt she and Christian "were completely living two different lives." She added, "I want a partner. I want someone I can be intimate with on every level. I need someone I can talk to on the bad days and the good days. Someone you know who is just there, that you can do life together. I just felt very lonely and alone.”
When asked if she believes if she will get back together with Christian, Lizzie said, “I don’t think about it but there’s always a possibility for anything. I just don’t know what happens in the future."
Lizzie also explained how both she and Christian would not introduce a new romantic partner to their sons without meeting him or her beforehand.
“That was an already printed out form that the attorney had, and we basically went over it and signed it,” she clarified. “We mediated and the attorney even said, ‘We put these things here, just to protect you guys but if you guys can do your own things, make up your own rules ow ways you want to do it, that’s totally fine. It’s like a guideline. It was already there. We didn’t say, ‘It has to be this way, this way, this way.’ ”
