In the episode, which the RHOC mom previously announced she was shooting in January, Heather plays award-winning chef and lifestyle guru Natasha Cook Campbell, who Gabi (Emily Osment) is obsessed with. With the help of Gabi, Josh (Jonathan Sadowski) scores a huge deal with Natasha. But their wonderful meeting takes a turn when Natasha's beloved pampered pooch Kiki takes a dive off of Josh's terrace while playing fetch. Gabi and Josh have to scramble to get Kiki back because "she's the only bitch" Natasha listens to.
After an episode full of shenanigans, including a second fetch faux pas, Gabi and Josh save their hides by finding Kiki and also another dog, who they convince Natasha is the boyfriend they found for her prized canine. At the end of the episode, Natasha comes by Gabi's apartment to seal the deal for their cookbook, but unfortunately, a third fetch game goes awry when Kiki jumps out the window, and she rips the contract right in front of her. And Heather looked oh-so-fabulous while doing it.
It sounds like the episode got Heather's daughter Max's seal of approval.
Heather's return to TV was a hit for her and Young & Hungry fans alike.
Heather announced that she won't be returning to RHOC in January. "After a lot of careful thought and deliberation, I have decided not to return to RHOC this season. These past 5 years have been an incredible journey and I'm so proud to have been a part of such an iconic piece of pop culture," she said in an exclusive statement to The Daily Dish. "I am so grateful to Evolution Media, Bravo and the whole NBCU family for all of the incredible experiences and the opportunities RHOC has afforded me and my family. However, at this point in my life, I have decided to go in another direction and do what’s best for my family and career. Should I change my mind, I thank Andy Cohen, Evolution and Bravo for telling me that the door is always open."
