“We started filming the show when our marriage was on its last legs,” she told New Idea. “We've had a lot of marital problems and I'm very open about them.”
“IIt's been really interesting filming [the show] because it really held a mirror up to us and made us realize that we're not communicating anymore,” she revealed.
Lisa also admitted that to deal with their marital woes that she and David go to marriage counseling as the couple both have strong personalities and they need ‘a referee to blow a whistle.’
As previously reported, Oldfield's husband David is reportedly not impressed by what he's seen in the pre-released episodes of the upcoming series.
"He's very unhappy, to the point where we aren't talking at the moment," the 41-year-old housewife told OK! Magazine Australia.
Lisa claims that her former politician husband is displeased towards his portrayal on the Foxtel hit reality show from watching a first three episodes of the first season.
"He feels he's been marginalised and emasculated," the businesswoman added.
Lisa admitted the married couple had already been struggling through a rough patch: "The show magnified it, but it had been festering for a while."
In a promotional clip released two weeks ago (seen below), the controversial housewife is seen lashing out in explicit language at her politician husband for interrupting her camera time.
She was seen yelling without hesitation: "Oh f****** shut up, you c***!" to partner David in the background off-screen.
"He can be a pain in the a** at times, but so can I," she then said of David, who formed the One Nation political party in 1997.
The mother-of-two hinted her time on the show may be short-lived as David has expressed his strong feelings towards wanting her to quit involvement with the series, reports The Daily Mail.
