The OC Housewife shares the couple's reaction to false tabloid reports.

The Real Housewives of Orange County star Heather Dubrow wants fans to know that rumors about her marriage to plastic surgeon Dr. Terry Dubrow being on the rocks have been greatly exaggerated.

Heather is responding to a recent rumor that her husband, star of the new reality series Botched, were thinking about touring with rock band Quiet Riot to get some space from his wife. (Terry's brother is Kevin Dubrow, the late frontman of the '80s band.)

"It's just so silly. You know what's funny, well it's not really funny, but when people see those articles they look at the headline and I was like 'How could they write that?' and I sent it to Terry and I didn't even read the article," she told All Things Real Housewives as reported by Fashion & Style. "Terry calls me laughing, and I'm like 'Why are you laughing?' and he asks if I read the article, when I said no he said, 'Honey, go read it.' So I did and I started reading about how he's going on tour with his late brother's band Quiet Riot and the roadies and I started laughing."

Heather further notes there is also one problem when it comes to that scenario.

"Terry doesn't even pack his own suitcase, how can he go be a roadie?" she added. "I think that's the thing with these reality shows, people will make stuff up about you to get a story out there and if you don't have a solid foundation, it's stressful. When I see those articles it's just like, 'You know what? Why do you have to say those things. We're allowed to be happy,' and sometimes I think success reaps contempt. People don't want you to be happy."

Even back in June, Terry shut down rumors that Heather and him were having problems. He shared, "My wife and I have a very tight relationship."

Heather does note that things aren't always perfect between her and her husband of over 17 years. And, she's OK with fans getting the chance to see the rare moments when things can be "rough" for the couple.

"One of the things I was proud of last year, and I wasn't happy that we were going through a rough time and it was on the show, but what I was proud about is that we showed, look, we've been together for 17 and a half years and you have moments in your marriage. Anyone that says that they don't is a liar," she said. "So we had those moments and we worked through it and it's not like our whole marriage was like that, that was an aberration. But I'm glad to show that you can get through those moments and be stronger."
