Lisa has never been married and despite being in the public eye has never had information about her relationships make the news. She has publicly stated that one of her best and worst habits is being a workaholic. Being consumed in her work has not allowed her to tend to her dating life. She values patience in her circle of her friends because there are long periods where she doesn’t see them. This type of work schedule has prevented her from having many stable romantic relationships.
