UPDATE: Since publishing this story, Lizzy Savestky has announced her exit from 'Real Housewives of New York City'. Lizzy took to her Instagram to announce that she is leaving 'Real Housewives of New York City' Reboot. In a note shared by her, she blamed the "torrent of antisemitic attacks" for her decision to leave the Bravo franchise.
The housewife wrote, "I will not be continuing on the Real Housewives of NYC. As a proud orthodox Jewish woman, I thought participating in this series would be a great chance to represent people like me and share my experience." "Unfortunately, from the time of my announcement in the cast, I was on the receiving end of a torrent of antisemitic attacks. As this continued, I realized that this path was no longer right for me and my family," she explained.
NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK: While the 'Real Housewives of New York City' Reboot is yet to begin filming, looks like there's already a lot of bickering and drama among the new cast members. Just a few weeks after 'Real Housewives' franchise executive producer Andy Cohen revealed the names of the new cast of 'RHONY' Reboot during BravoCon 2022, new housewife Lizzy Savetsky was reportedly fired.
According to reports, Lizzy allegedly got into a heated argument with her co-star Brynn Whitfield over a difference of opinions, which eventually led to her firing. While the details of her alleged fight are yet to be revealed, Tamra Judge had already hinted about the firing of one of the new 'RHONY' ladies on her podcast 'Two Ts in a Pod'. But The 'Real Housewives of Orange county' star didn't get into any further details or even revealed the name of the cast member who was allegedly fired. Later, the Bravo fan account 'Bravo and Cocktails' posted an anonymous blind confirming the rumors of the firing by claiming that the housewife "was difficult from day one and her filming availability was limited. Whatever she said / did was the icing on the cake…"
Did Lizzy Savetsky get fired from 'RHONY' Reboot?
Lizzy further strengthened the rumors when she posted a cryptic message on her Instagram story. "When you accept that you’re exactly where you’re supposed to be in this moment and that you have all that you need, miracles happen.” The fashion influencer's decision to remove 'RHONY' from her Instagram bio and later unfollow Bravo, her co-stars Brynn Whitfield and Sai De Silva, left everybody convinced that Lizzy was fired, although there are reports of Lizzie allegedly quitting over experiencing "anti-semitism" backlash since she was announced as the new housewife on 'RHONY' Reboot.
Lizzy is a fashion influencer based out of New York. Originally from Fort Worth, Texas, she is married to plastic surgeon Dr Ira Savetsky. The couple has three children together. Lizzy regularly updates her over 201,000 followers on Instagram with not only her fashion choices but is also vocal about her Jewish faith, sharing the Yiddish language with the world, and giving a peek into her family life as a busy mom of three.
The self-proclaimed 'proud Jew & Zionist' courted backlash when she made a rather controversial social media post after Bella Hadid openly expressed her support for Palestine during a Vogue magazine interview. Aside from accusing Bella and Vogue of being antisemitic, the budding reality star edited the Vogue cover with a cover photo of Bella alongside headlines such as "Vogue Arabia publishes an Instagram post that erases Israel off the map” and “Bella Hadid graces this month’s Vogue cover wearing a design by John ‘I love Hitler’ Galliano.” Lizzy was immediately criticized by the internet for her controversial views and actions, which eventually led to her taking down the post.
Aside from Lizzy, the cast of 'RHONY' Reboot includes creative director Sai De Silva, model and philanthropist Ubah Hassan, home renovation guru Erin Dana Lichy, former J.Crew president Jenna Lyons, fashion publicist, and brand consultant Jessel Taank, and brand marketing and communications professional Brynn Whitfield.
