90 Day Fiance

Big Ed Reacts to Liz’s New Boyfriend and Why He Has No Regrets Over Their Split

90 Day Fiancé star Big Ed is opening up about his shocking breakup from Liz and his thoughts on her moving on with another man. ET’s Rachel Smith sat down with the 59-year-old reality star to talk about the stunning turn of events on this season of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?, when he called off his wedding to Liz without even telling her.

90 Day Fiancé viewers have seen Ed and Liz struggle with their relationship over the past three years, and the two had broken up 15 times already. But on this season, he ended it for good and called off their wedding over a seemingly benign argument over taco pasta. Liz was heartbroken and wanted him back even though she had to find out their wedding was called off by their officiant. But since then, she has since moved on with another relationship, which she’s shown on social media. Ed complimented 30-year-old Liz’s new man while talking with ET and revealed that they’ve actually met.

“He’s a hunk,” Ed says of Liz’s new boyfriend. “Guy’s a pretty good-looking guy, I’m very happy I met them. I have met the guy, you know, he’s really nice. I think they’re within one or two years apart [in age].”

Still, he does have some reservations about their new relationship.

“For the last three years and that was every time we broke up it was something like that where …. Liz has had a really hard life, you know, my mistake was that I thought I could fix her, I could change her, and I also realize you can’t,” he continues. “And I tried to shower her with money and tried to make her feel secure, just like wanted to sort of wrap her in a blanket and let her know that she’s loved and she’s safe but it never … you know, when you do that, when you take somebody out of their routine, they can’t function. My buddy, Rich, told me that, he’s like, you can’t change who she is, you have to love who that person is.”

As for how his relationship with Liz ended, while it did seem abrupt to viewers, Ed shared that three months ahead of the wedding he realized that their issues were not getting any better and he couldn’t marry her. When it comes to blindsiding her by calling off the wedding, Ed said that he did tell her it was over when they fought over taco pasta in front of his family, but she didn’t get the message.

He also explained how the taco pasta fight was just an example of the two’s deep-seated issues.

“A lot of the issues that Liz and I had, it comes down to communication,” he shares. “Liz would get into these tirades and they weren’t pleasant in front of the public, in front of an Uber driver and I hid that from my family. And so for the first time, my family got to see how Liz acts when she’s frustrated and I remember looking over at my sister and she gave me this look like, don’t do it, you’re making a mistake. And I already knew.”

He insisted though that he was always genuine about wanting to marry Liz.

Ed said he has since moved on from Liz and holds no ill-will towards her whatsoever.

“I’ll always love Liz,” he says. “I’ll always love her daughter. I’m definitely not in love with Liz, but she’ll always have a place in my heart. She’s a part of my history and I have no regrets.”

He said the two are still in touch.

“Occasionally we will text very lightly but, you know, I don’t want to be a distraction to her,” he notes. “I want her to have every opportunity to be happy. She knows that I love her. I’ll never, ever say anything bad about her. I have nothing to say bad about her at all and I really want her to be happy and I want to be happy. I want to find my happiness.”
