Lyn Vargas appeared in good spirits as she cuddled close to a mysterious man a day after her home was ‘overrun’ by SWAT with her ex said to have a fence inside.
The Real Housewives of Orange County alums live in a 5 million dollar mansion in Newport Beach.
Elizabeth was spotted wearing a gray body-hugging dress while walking her dog.
She was always smiling, at one point embracing a mysterious man while hanging out in front of her open garage door.
The Bravo star and her friend seemed to be chatting and sharing some laughs after her house was flooded by SWAT.
TMZ broke the news on Tuesday, reporting that Elizabeth had called 911.
Sources close to the star told the paper that she and her ex – since identified as Ryan Geraghty – have had issues.
Elizabeth contacted authorities, reporting that he was “possibly blackmailed,” according to the site.
Police arrived at the scene and learned that her ex had fenced herself in the house.
One person was arrested, TMZ reports.
A SWAT team scanned the entire house, making sure that no one else was hiding inside.
The next day, David Weintraub – Elizabeth’s manager – issued a statement to Our weekly about the incident.
He said: “She had a concussion and had an extremely traumatic experience.
“Fortunately, the Newport Police Department saved her and she is doing well.”
The outlet later received a statement from the local government, who shed more light on the situation.
Police identified the attacker as Ryan, revealing that the 33-year-old had “actively threatened” Elizabeth’s life during the standoff.
He was charged with several felony counts, including assault with a deadly weapon, burglary and extortion.
Ryan is currently in custody.
“Law enforcement confirmed no other individuals were involved and there was no additional threat to the community,” the Newport Beach Police Department said in its statement.
Elizabeth made her debut on Real Housewives of Orange County in Season 15.
She was previously married to Bernt Bodal. The couple married in 2000 and split in 2017.
Their divorce was not finalized until July 2020.
She then dated a man named Jimmy Juarez, who appeared on RHOC.
However, the pair called it a hiatus shortly after Season 15 aired on Bravo.
Elizabeth shared the news on Instagram, saying: “I guess I’m going through a big transition.
“I love my job, lost my boyfriend and lost my dog - it sounds like a terrible country song.”
Elizabeth leaves RHOC with leads Braunwyn Windham-Burke and Kelly Dodd.
