The RHOC star says the house will have a large family room--and a beauty salon.

on Jul 25, 2013 - The Dish0

Heather Dubrow and husband Terry's last home was nothing to sneeze at: the mansion, which they recently sold, had a state-of-the-art kitchen, sprawling foyer and solarium, and towel-warmers in the massive bathroom.

Now, the couple are beginning work on their new abode. Heather tells the Dish that they're in the "early stages" and planning to break ground in November.

What will their new home look like? Heather has offered a peek at the model-version (check it out below) and she says, "This house is very cool and I think even better than the last house we built. The size and shape of the new lot allows for more depth to the house."

Among the features inside: a large kitchen and family room. "This is an important space for our family and we missed having that in the last house," she says.

She's also putting in a "small beauty salon." "It will be complete with shampoo sink and makeup station!" she says.

What do you think of Heather's plans for her new house? And what amenities would you recommend to her? Tell us in the comments and take a tour of her old home below.

Your patronising, hypocritical and pompous de(mean)our gives me the overwhelming urge to throw up!... It just goes to show that no amount of money can give you class!

Oh, Heather......just be fabulous and quit getting involved with the other RHOC ladies - they are beginning to suck you into their crazy, myopic little world of nonsense.  If you get acting jobs, just go act - enjoy it and don't expect any of them to truly care or be happy for  you.  It is not in their DNA - especially the ladies who have been on the show the longest.  You and your husband and your children are the only truly wealthy cast members - the rest just want to be you!

You definitely act high brow, but you behavior and what irritates you in others is a reflection of what you do and how you behave.  Perhaps coming down off your high horse for a second, you can see reality as it is....disappointing because there are so many fantastic qualities that you posses.....but as the season progresses you get worse...you expected an apology from Gretchen, but you didn't apologize for totally calling her out with misinformation about the Malibu Country and tried to side step that.

WHO CARES!! I think you are the most two faced, show off person I have ever seen!  It's all about you!  You need to raise your kids and forget about acting honey!  Please, you say you can do it all, you don't have a clue how to do it all!!  You don't cook, clean nothing!!  Go back to your fancy home and act with your kids!! i hope you leave the show!  Also, you are not a friend and you treat your husband like crap!!

I am sure that Heather and her Husband have worked very hard to achieve all of their wealth and success. But please please please have a little bit of decorum and sensitivity. This is directed to your comment about the amount of seats you have in your screening room and to have your son talk about wanting a bigger one!!! How about talking more to your son about what is important in life and maybe teaching him how to do,something good with your good fortune. Talking about the number of seats in your screening room is not the way to,go!!!

By all appearances it would seem that Heather has it all. Good for her. HOWEVER, she may want to stop chasing after bit parts on thrid rate TV programs and start attending to her children's behavior. It was appalling to hear the way her son (Nick, is it?) talked to his father. They are not peers so for the child to say "shut the hole that makes the noise, Terry Dubrow" is quite out of order! Is it a cultural thing? Southern Californians living behind the "gates" never turn out to be as good as their image suggests.

Couldnt even finish your tour. Your are so stuck up. If you think that a happy marriage is not sharing toilets, you my dear are full of it. Most people cant afford to have two bathrooms so what do you say to them? Oh well divorce then cuz a happy marriage is having your own toilet... You know what you should do for all? STFU

They can afford it, so go for it, but I think it's sad that someone would still want for more when they already have so much.  When she joined the show, she said it took years to build their last house.  It has a perfect view, and is gorgeous.  But, they still yearn for an even better view and larger home.  That's so sad to me.  Terry makes a lot of money - that's wonderful - but so sad to me that they aren't satisfied with the luxury they JUST finished building a few years ago.  Now the kids have to move out of their home into  temporary one for who knows how long (at least 2 years, I bet) while their parents build them a outrageous home they didn't need.  I like the way they tried to make it appear on camera that this decision was about Terry being home more and having another bedroom (how is possible that the last house didn't have enough bedrooms for a family their size?  I didn't know there were 12,000 sq ft homes with only 4 bedrooms!  Crazy.  Couldn't they have renovated part of the house to add a bedroom if that was really the issue?). I think that actually they're just not satisfied with anything less than the absolute best mansion they can afford.  That's so sad to me.  When is it going to be enough.  Having said all of that...I do like the Dubrows.  I'm glad Heather joined the show.  But I can't see this new home as anything other than an addiction to the next best, brightest thing...never satisfied.

Remember when people used to congratulate others on their success instead of feeling jealous?  I miss those days.

Heather is one of my favorite housewives because I think she's generally more logical and level-headed than many of the others but I fell off of the stair climber laughing when I heard her say, "I'm really not attached to material things."  LOL!!  That's just pure comedy.  The last house was beautiful and I'm sure this one will be stunning.  I think she needs to be careful about those kinds of comments, though.  I'd love to see her stick to the budget most families have to abide by - I'm fairly certain it would bring her to her knees in tears.

You might want to consider a smaller, cozier house. Your old house did not seem child-friendly at all.  It would be very easy to lose a young child in all that space. As a mom, I found that it was important to have the bedrooms very close together so that I always knew what the kids were up to, especially when they were teenagers.  In a big house, it may seem like the kids are living down the block.  In order to be close as a family, you need to stay physically close and accessible.

I think it's wonderful if you can afford to do such wonderful things, you are truly blessed,I unfortunately are on disability and are homeless. I once had a great job and wonderful family, got sick, lost my job and could no longer work...Well because of that I lost everything. Life is so short. I say enjoy it while you have it. God bless and take care.

Thought the last one was cold and bare looking. Vicki's house is more warm and comfy. If your Husband wants to work less,downsize the house have nice nest egg. You can build a wonderful home with large family room and kitchen and for a lot less. Skip the beauty salon, bet even Meryl Streep doesn't have one.

I think is cold, tacky, and new money just like its owner...you are soooooo smart and you manipulate all the others...Vicki is soooo jealous of beautiful women and happy marriages....she broke up dumb blonde Tamara who you can control...you said Alexis was consumed with things and money but you are the worst...two people said they got called for parts...it did not matter if it was a big part but you called them liars because only you are a true actress...well, you prove that everyday...you treat your good, kind, helpful husband like he is dirt on your cold floors. I can not figure out why you threw Gretchen under the bus...bless her heart she thew over a real friend in Alexis for one of the meanest people,Tamara and you...well,you have shown your true colors...

 @Kimg9292 My sentiments exactly! The majority of these women don't cook, clean, do laundry or anything. Yet, they always find room to complain about how "busy" their day was and how "tired" they are. I will never forget one time when Alexis went to Peggy's dinner party and she told Peggy, "well between the kids, Jim and working out, I don't have time." Wow, working out is such a big part of your everyday routine? You women really have NO CLUE what "real" work is!!! 15,000 square feet to what 17,500 square feet? I hope they all thank God that they have been blessed with so much while the majority of us have to scratch and scrape by everyday of our lives. I can't even imagine how a 15,000 -17,500 square foot house must be to live in and here I am living in an apt. that is about 600 square feet!! So, next time any of these women complain that they don't have enough room to live in, stop by my place and I'll show you what it's like not to have enough room!!! Appreciate what you have and stop being so two-faced! I liked you when you first came on the show but you are showing more and more what it's like to be "uppity!"

 @EMC59 That's true. I have read stories about little boys who have chosen to make collections for other children that they don't even know so that they can have surgery. These are things that these women need to teach their children, that God has blessed them with good fortune and that they should do something good with that. PAY IT FORWARD!! Talking about how many seats you have in your home theatre is not important, in fact to me it's just very superficial and it's a shame that these kids are not being taught how to be "real."

 @shannah74 So agree,  disgusting behaviour.  I would even say, spoilt brat! Just shocking to talk about or to ANYONE like that, let alone his own dad.

 @mariablough Excuse me?  She is probably the furthest from representing a true housewife.  Because along with being a true housewife, you have to understand the real struggles that we have to go through.  Heather has no real struggles.  Unless you count missing a hair appointment.

 Amen to that, was thinking the same thing.  Oh well, rich peoples problems, right?

 @fulltimemommyvcOk, for the record, if someone is irritated by Heather's ostentatious and self-important attitude, it does not necessarily mean they are jealous of her.  I certainly find her pompous behavior distasteful, so why on earth would that invoke jealousy on my part?

 @msvndrblt How sad that your comments will probably never reach Heather.  I doubt she takes the time to read what the fans are saying.

 @msvndrblt That is the whole point of the rich paying more taxes for the unfortunate.  My feeling is no one should have more than they need when others are suffering. I believe they are bearing the brunt of not being able to afford this expensive house and that is why they are moving.    Yes they should down size but I don't believe for a minute they want to.  They had to.  Cosmetic surgery when most Americans don't have common insurance coverage.  She may have to work and down size.  Everyone wants to paint a perfect picture of themselves.  However the facts are taxes on the rich are here to stay.  They might be homeless if they don't down size.

 @la12ce I'm with you on downsizing.  They can accomodate everyone in a smaller, less expensive home.  I don't want to hear her tell Alexis or anyone else that they are materialistic, LOL.
