Lorraine Fuisz Husband
After things started to crumble for Theranos, her husband was ready to do anything to bring them down. He also talked a lot about the Holmes family.
Richard also faulted Elizabeth’s mother Noel for her indulging her daughter’s childhood fantasies. He explained to Inc., “Elizabeth’s mother, Noel, told my ex-wife about Elizabeth’s idea for a wrist bracelet with needles that would test peoples’ blood in real-time, detect diseases, and administer drugs all in the same device. These are the thoughts of a child.”
Since then, Richard has made several posts on his Twitter regarding Noel. In December 2021, he wrote on Twitter, “Physician. Noel Holmes. Noel, you took such pleasure in the courtroom during the unfair and false action against my Family. How am I to feel now as your daughter faces the likelihood of prison. Remember YOU raised Elizabeth.”
“Our kids grew up with their kids. They were jealous of our family,” Richard claimed according to Oxygen. “I was a physician who had many patents and made money off of them and knew Arabic.” He even claimed that Holmes’ mother “programmed Elizabeth to be like me, invent and learn a language.”
In the show, her husband is played by actor William H Macy.
William also explained that when he was filming it was an ongoing investigation at the time and all the information that he needed was on the script. Thus, William didn’t want to meet the real Richard.
