Why Did Lizzy Savetsky Leave ‘The Real Housewives of New York’?

The businesswoman announced her departure via Instagram on November 17, 2022, after she received a slew of bigoted social media comments ever since the public learned she joined the cast. 

“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,” she wrote. “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.” 

Is Lizzy Savetsky From New York?

Although she’s joining the RHONY, Lizzy was born and raised as a Texas native who just became a resident of the Big Apple. Upon the big announcement, the influencer made the move in August 2022, according to her Instagram account.

What Is Lizzy Savetsky’s Job?

The brunette beauty is a social media fashion influencer and matchmaker. She runs a business Instagram account @bashertbylizzy, where she hosts weekly IGTV episodes in hopes to match Jewish singles.

“‘Bashert’ is a Yiddish word that means ‘destiny,’” her October 2021 business Instagram post read. “It is often used in the context of one’s divinely predestined spouse or soulmate. In modern usage, Jewish singles will say that they are looking for their bashert, meaning they are looking for that person who will complement them perfectly, and whom they will complement perfectly.”

Is Lizzy Savetsky Married?

The influencer-soon-to-be-reality-star is happily married to plastic surgeon Dr. Ira Savetsky, and the two share children Stella, Juliet and Ollie. The beautiful family is Jewish and heavily follows their faith while also sharing their culture with Lizzy’s online fanbase. 

The former Texan posts a “Yiddish Word of the Week,” where she usually presents a new word in a silly manner. Among her content creation, Lizzy is an advocate for Israel and speaks about pressing issues. 

Thank you @israeloncampus for having me at your conference today! It was honor to be in the company of so many strong, passionate advocates for Israel,” she captioned her July 2022 Instagram post. “Thank you to @henmazzig & @motiankari for the constant support in the digital space. You both inspire me endlessly and I adore having each of you by my side!!!!”
