Heather Dubrow's '80s Connection
The RHOC ladies' talks hair metal and her brother-in-law, Quiet Riot singer, Kevin Dubrow.
Tucked in the drama of Tuesday's big bunco party, was a mini-revelation you might have missed. When The Real Housewives of Orange County gents arrived decked in their finest spandex (and mullets -- Slade Smiley, you wore it well), you might have heard Terry Dubrow tell his wife (and newest RHOC lady) Heather, "Am I Kevin or what?"
The Kevin he was referring to. . . Kevin Dubrow, Terry's brother and, coincidentally, the lead singer of '80s hair metal band Quiet Riot.
Yes, "Cum On Feel the Noize" Quiet Riot. And even more Bravo coincidences -- Quiet Riot was managed by one Kim Richards (no, not The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Kim Richards -- the other Kim Richards, a music biz veteran who worked with Pink Floyd, David Bowie, and others).
Terry shares a little more about his brother in the bonus clip below, but we had to ask Heather, what she remembers about the charismatic, hair-spray soaked lead singer.
"They were such extreme opposites! Can you imagine two brothers -- a rock star and a plastic surgeon?" Heather shares. "Terry was athletic and a serious student, whereas Kevin had no interest in sports and was crazy about music from the time he could walk. Despite the differences I was shocked to see Terry when he put on his brothers stage outfit with a wig. They looked identical! It freaked Terry out even more,as he had a very complicated relationship with his rockstar brother made even more difficult by Kevin's premature death four years ago."
Heather remembers the rocker fondly, "Kevin was a talented guy. I grew up listening to his music. His family, friends, and fans miss him a lot."
