New information about RHONY newbie Lizzy Savetsky quitting the show has come to light…and sources says she actually left the show because of her husband’s repeated use of a racial slur.
According to Page Six, her co-star Brynn Whitfield had an awkward exchange with Savetsky over religious customs.
Brynn allegedly asked if she’d set her up with a Jewish man and Lizzy told Brynn that while she has no problem with Jews dating gentiles — she prefers only to set up Jews with other Jews. Things got tense and then Brynn, who is half-Black, used the N-word during the call. The two then had another conversation where they discussed the power of racial slurs but Lizzy’s husband, Dr. Ira Savetsky, was “outraged and reported the alleged incident to the show’s producers.” But he actually used the word repeatedly to producers. He realized his mistake too late and the couple decided to exit the show.
Lizzy initially told her fans that she left the show over anti-semitic hate.
“From the time [it was announced she was joining the cast],” she said, “I was on the receiving end of a torrent of [anti-Semitic] attacks. As this continued, I realized that this path was no longer right for me and my family.”
