Elizabeth was all set to confront her castmate after finding out that she was digging up dirt about her past.
But as Elizabeth and Braunwyn went on a walk together, the new RHOC star was overwhelmed with emotion and had a panic attack during their trek
Vargas had quite a bit to get off her chest and she spilled the beans about her traumatic childhood.
“I mean I’m gonna tell you this, but like I’m not ready to tell many people this,” confessed Elizabeth. “I was raised in a very, very religious situation, where I was told to absolutely not open my mouth or tell the truth about what was happening.”
She continued tearfully, “And I have a very, very hard issue with stopping the compartmentalization cause I grew up in this horrible situation, So I don’t let people get to know me. I throw big parties, no one really knows me…”
She told Braunwyn, “And I don’t wanna live that way anymore.”
While Windham-Burke reassured her castmate that she doesn’t have to live that way anymore, the confession was overwhelming for Elizabeth.

Spilling the beans about her past proved too much for the Real Housewives of Orange County star.
Elizabeth revealed even more about her childhood and later admitted that she needs help to heal from her trauma.
“I was always scared for my life because we were always beaten so bad that I thought for sure I was gonna die one day of it,” shared Elizabeth in her confessional.
But after revealing her dark past to her castmate, she spiraled and soon had a full-blown pain attack.
Braunwyn took control of the situation and helped to calm down the RHOC newbie.
The dramatic scene was a welcome change for fans who felt as if they have not gotten to know Elizabeth very well since the season started.
Hopefully, this is just the start of the reality TV personality opening up about her life and giving fans more insight into who she really is.
