This season of The Real Housewives of Orange County is shaking it up, introducing a new addition with Elizabeth Lyn Vargas, a Missouri native new to the OC. Thanks to RHOC cast member Kelly Dodd, Vargas has been brought on as a full-time Season 15 cast member, and she’s already making a big impact on the long-running reality show with her candid conversations and lavish lifestyle.
We’re only a couple weeks into the new season, but with every episode, we’re learning more about the newest housewife, and Bravo is diving right into the personal details. Right after we first meet her, we learn all about Vargas’ romantic life, including her current and past relationships. Here’s everything you need to know, including who she was married to, who she’s dating, and more:
IS ELIZABETH LYN VARGAS MARRIED?
Elizabeth Lyn Vargas was married at one point, but when the current season was filmed, she was in the middle of a divorce. In a July Instagram story, she confirmed that her divorce had been finalized, per Us Weekly. “You know, I don’t know how I’m feeling today,” she shared. “I’m excited but I’m sad and I – it’s the end of an era – I was with the guy for 20 years. Seventeen years but divorcing for three. Twenty years 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 are transitioning to a new phase in my life and I’m excited.”
WHO IS ELIZABETH LYN VARGAS’ EX-HUSBAND?
Before she finalized her divorce over the summer, Vargas was married to Bernt Bodal, a Norwegian businessman who once appeared on the reality series Undercover Boss. According to an interview in Seattle Business Magazine, Bodal is the CEO and majority shareholder of American Seafoods. Distractify reports that he’s 67 years old and has a net worth of around $200 million. The couple was married for twenty years, but their divorce took three full years to complete.
WHO IS ELIZABETH LYN VARGAS’ BOYFRIEND?
After splitting from her husband, the new RHOC cast member found new love with her current boyfriend, Jimmy. But according to Bravo’s The Daily Dish, their relationship has “raised some eyebrows” after Vargas revealed some interesting details about their sex life, explaining that, although they’re dating, they’ve never had sex. “He just wants to do it right, and he really cares for me,” she said. “The reason I like him is because he’s good company, and I know exactly where he’s at.”
