'90 Day Fiancé's Liz Talks Split From Big Ed and If There's a Chance They'll Get Back Together (Exclusive)

ET spoke with '90 Day Fiancé' star Liz and she talked about her breakup with Big Ed and if there's any chance of getting back together.

90 Day Fiancé star Liz is opening up about her shocking split from Big Ed. On this season of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?, Ed called off their wedding without even telling her and said their relationship was over for good even though they had broken up and gotten back together multiple times over the past three years. Liz sat down with ET's Melicia Johnson and talked about their big breakup and why she wanted to stay with him despite his bad behavior.

Liz stressed that their seemingly benign fight over taco pasta in front of his family that led Ed to call off the wedding was actually about her defending her daughter, Riley.

"My side of the story is basically, like, I started sticking up for myself to stick up for my daughter," she says, noting that a lot was going on that night. "Ed was supposed to watch my daughter, I was taking my real estate test and then just was a lot coming home to like, no help cleaning the house, intoxicated family members over, calling my daughter a baby over taco pasta and then me defending her and then sticking up for her and then me kind of getting chewed out for it, so there is a lot that happened on taco pasta night."

Liz also explained still wanting to work it out with Ed even though he coldly called off the wedding without telling her. She only found out when their officiant called her to say he was sorry. Liz told ET the experience was "traumatizing."

"I think once you get comfortable in a situation, it's hard to leave," she notes. "You have to understand too, I left a partnership. I gave up an apartment here. I was actually paying rent on an apartment still out here to make sure I kind of had a backup in case something didn't happen ...  it kind of was a lot thrown in my face. I stayed in this relationship because I just feel like Ed and I were attacked and bullied so much in our relationship that they think that our love wasn't real, and it really was, so I just wanted to fight for that and also I wanted to, like, fight for him. I don't know why I wanted to stay with him, but I also know that I am a people pleaser and I just invested so much into him." 

"People are like, 'Oh, are you with him because you are a gold digger, do you need money?'" she continues. "Mind you, I've worked, I'm the only one who worked throughout our whole three-and-a-half-year relationship. Ed did not have a job when I met him."

Liz has since worked on herself since the breakup, going into therapy and getting into health and fitness. Fans have commented on her "glow up" on social media since splitting from Ed.

"It is a continuous process," she says about continuing to heal. "I have put so many boundaries down and I don't let people cross those anymore for me."

It's no secret that plenty of 90 Day Fiancé fans are not fans of Big Ed, and Liz commented on who he is as a person.

"I think that Ed is a good friend, I don't think he's a good partner," she says. "He does truly want the best for himself but he only loves himself, so he could only make changes for him. And I do remember telling him, like, you're going to be the best version of yourself out here in Arkansas and if you do meet someone... I do see that growth too, but I don't ever trust that. There's a reason why he's been single for such a long time, so, and if I couldn't even change that and I never gave up one time, I don't know who can."

"I don't see myself ever getting back with Ed. I actually don't ever see myself being friends with Ed," she adds. "We had our closure at the tell-all and that's where it needs to stay. ... He's just a closed chapter, you know? I don't really have words for him."

Liz also reacted to Ed telling ET he was looking for a "nice conservative Christian woman" to date next.

"Well, Christian women are taught to be submissive so I wouldn't be shocked," she says.  

As for her advice to any woman looking to date Ed? 

"Just run," she says.
