'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Marisa Zanuck Says She Doesn't Like Taylor Armstrong, Stands By Criticism of Teresa Giudice (EXCLUSIVE VIDEO)
Fans won’t meet Zanuck until about Episode 8, but she stopped by the Celebuzz studio in Hollywood recently and told us why she decided to join the show.
“I’m kind of a little crazy, funny,” she explained. “I’m one of those girls who make fun of myself. I do what I feel. I do what I want. And, I just thought it would be fun.”
“I thought it would be great publicity to see if there would be any other business ventures out there for me I’m interested in doing other than real estate, which I’ve been doing for 145 years,” she added. “And I wanted to spice up my life a little bit and I hope I spiced it up in a good way not a bad way.”
Aside from her real estate career, Zanuck is married to movie producer Dean Zanuck (Jaws, Cocoon, Alice in Wonderland) and has two children. An old friend of cast member Kyle Richards (and a former coworker of her husband Mauricio), the star gave us a quick clue as to who she would be bumping heads with on the series.
She didn’t really elaborate on why, but we figured she may have learned a lesson after angry fans flooded her Twitter account over comments she made about The Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Teresa Giudice. Or not…
“[Teresa’s] kind of crazy and I know I’m going to get into a lot of trouble about this again, but that’s my opinion," she says, standing by her previous comments. "It doesn’t mean I don’t like her. It doesn’t mean that I think she’s a horrible person. It just means I think she’s kind of mean.”
Watch our interview with Zanuck above.
What do you think of Zanuck so far? Are you excited to see what she'll bring to the show?
