“We are not perfect by any means. Passing by all the bulls–t with the many breakups, I am forever grateful to be called yours. I am your forever and you are mine. If I could give you my vows today I would, but our timing needs to be right,” she wrote via Instagram on November 12. “I will forever be by your side. I have never felt love, comfort, support, and encouragement the way you have given your heart and love to myself and my daughter. 6 months of separation changed us, not for worse but for better. What a year we have had. We had one hell of a rough patch and somehow in gods hands we ended back together. I promise to do my best to never disappoint you, be by your side, and support us in both our crazy decisions, and we are crazy. You make me whole. I love you. TO FOREVER! ❤️ August 29th at 3:30 in the morning! I’ll never forget your proposal and I’ll never forget my attitude and completely shocked 😆 !!!!!!! Yessssss!!!! I will marry you….. @thisisbiged.”

“I see a friend of Liz grab her by the arm,” Ed said during the October 2022 episode. “I know her. She’s a lesbian, and this looks like an emotional fight — the way that people who have been intimate look at each other. I’m shocked.”
