Anyone who watches Botched knows that Dr. Terry Dubrow likes to have a little fun at the expense of fellow plastic surgeon, Dr. Paul Nassif. But when Botched's upcoming after show, Post Op, debuts on October 13, it seems Paul will finally have an ally in its host: Real Housewives of Orange County's Heather Dubrow. And, it's making her hubby sweat.
"The only thing potentially questionable and objectionable about it is that they gang up on me a little bit," Terry joked to The Daily Dish. "I'm used to ganging up on Paul. You may hear some things that I really don't want you to hear about."
Meanwhile, Paul is excited to welcome Heather to the crew for this extension of the Botched brand. "When I first heard Heather was about to do this, I thought [it] was good because she just is familiar with us," he said. "The reason why this makes so much sense is this is someone [who] 1. Is married to a plastic surgeon and knows plastic surgery, knows all the ups and downs, [and] knows everything about Botched because she's married to someone who's on Botched. In addition, she knows my personality. She knows me for many, many years and so it just makes sense." Additionally, Paul noted that the trio has a genuine affection for each other, which should translate on screen. "It's almost like three friends conversing together, who also knows a lot about plastic surgery," he said. "You can't make it any more comfortable."
Terry agrees that his wife is the perfect hosting choice, noting that she's known both doctors for nearly 20 years. "Not only is [Heather] an amazing host and tour guide through the inside... she is also an insider," he explained. "She's known Paul for 17 years, she's known me for 19 years, and she has lived through the Botched experience behind the scenes with us, so she has her own unique perspectives on Botched and she shares that during her hosting duties."
And it's the same insidery take that drives viewers' interest in the first place. Terry noted that the idea to launch a post-show came from the viewers, who always want to know more about the featured patients. "Botched covers a lot [but] it's only — let's face it — 43 minutes in that hour," Terry said. "Forty-three minutes to cover two or three very intense stories about patients' journeys is just involved and so risky and emotional. It really calls for an after show to talk about some of the things that we just couldn't show you in that period. Everyone wants to know: behind the scenes what's going on? What are we not seeing? So that fans really called for that."
As Season 2 of Botched proper continues, fans will get to see even more powerful stories of formerly hopeless patients turning to the Dubrow/Nassif dream team for help. "This entire last half of this season is really characterized, in my mind, with not only high-risk plastic surgery and a lot of fun — Paul and I have a lot of comedy — but really heartfelt dramatic moments that are both very serious and very dangerous. So there's a lot of things in there that remind us of things in our own lives that really touch our hearts very closely. But there's a lot of gravitas in this season."
That's been evident from the beginning. In the mid-season premiere, Paul opened up about losing his mother. "Its very raw," he added about the latest batch of episodes. "It's very organic. It's not something that we plan on. This is real life."
