Heather Dubrow

Heather refuses to apologize for being educated, but enjoyed "glamping" all the same.

on Apr 17, 20120

I hope everyone had a wonderful spring break! We had a lot of fun with the kids. Great family time in the pool and on the beach. Unfortunately, the only thing I brought home with me was the FLU! Ugh! I can't ever remember being this sick! So, I will be brief. . .

I would like to start by saying I am not going to apologize for being educated. I have never claimed to be an expert on anything. I'm a reasonably intelligent person. I read a lot. I enjoy talking to people because that is how you learn.

Anyway, I have to say I was sad after watching this episode. In my opinion, except for a couple of little hiccups -- the trip was really fun. 

When I arrived at Vicki's house, Alexis and I spent some nice time together. I had brought these lanterns I had ordered for everyone. They were so cute with their names on them and all blinged out! We chatted for a while before we took off.

I loooove heather. She's cool , calm , collected, and so sophisticated ! Alexis as we can all see feels sooo intimidated by heather. I find it funny how she tries so hard to hide that she feels insecure around heather because heather has and is everything i just listed . I do not feel that Heather is a show off honestly guys how can she hide being very well spoken or the fact that she has a nicer home than most of us she . She has what she has and is what she shows. She has it all and sometimes we women can't stand to see others so well of we are insecure and intimidated by who "we feel" are better than ourselves or carry themselves better than we do. I love her :)

Heather you have been a nice addition to the housewives. I am not a huge fan of Alexis either. But you seem like you have class. You are not showing your class counting Tim and Alexis' money. Don't you have enough of your own to count. You need to stop it is boring and really beneath your character.

It is very easy to get caught up in the girls BS. I don't know why they don't go to therapy. You and Terry are a breath of fresh air and the only two sane people on the show. I'm not sure what the point is of this show other than to take friends and strangers and make them hate each other. Good luck! I am an atheist, so it's all BS to me!!

Just want to say Heather's husband is very supportive, a good father & seems to not let negativity get to him! Oh, and Heather is nice too! Js

I understand this is a tv show. However what happened to building each other up rathering then tearing someone down. Heather hardly an actress!

Heather, I really love you. I love your style, sophistication, and intelligence. I know you pride yourself on how you met your spouse/investment, and I think i it is great to demonstrate to the other ladies that women can have beauty and brains. A woman like you who is constantly involved in all aspects of your marriage is a great example to all other women because it really shows that your hubby respects you. For your husband to take in consideration your passion for acting really demonstrates he is a good man. Take good care of that man of yours because a man with that type of mentality and grace, is very hard to find! Sometimes I wonder if you are much younger than he. Only because he physically looks more mature than you do. It does not matter because you are a GREAT TEAM! You have a beautiful family, and your hubby is adorable! BTW……I love the way you tear down Alexis every time something stupid comes out of her mouth. I agree with you. She is so stupid. And her little five minute gig with FOX is awful. She has no education, and she is tacky. Poor girl really wants to be looked and respected as a smart, rich, TV correspondent and classy woman. They need to call you and ask you to do it. Having her on the show is like listening to the sound of someone scratching the chalkboard wall. Anyway, take care and look forward in seeing you much more!!!

Heather, I am so happy to see you on the show this season. (I was a fan of yours before this show.) You bring an entirely different dynamic to the mix. It will interesting to see how everything plays out!

I understand acting is your "passion", but maybe 4 children (one of which is a newborn) should be your passion for a while. It's not like your discussing going to a 9-5 while the kids are in school. You're talking about working in another country for 15 hours a day. And this series could go on for years!!!! I wanted to jump into the screen and shake you! You have a doting husband, the opportunity to afford Anything in your life and 4 healthy children. Count your blessings and put your passion into your Blessed Life!!!

There you go again. You called Alexis phony? Can you just stop making negative comments about Alexis. Every episode you have something to say about Alexis. Your husband too. He loves to talk smack about Alexis. He's worst than you.

I was watching an old episode of "Married with Children" this morning, and Heather was on the show. She was in one of Bud's all too frequent sexual fantasies. It was hilarious and she looks the same now that she did back then! You rock, Heather!

I like you but please stop calling Alexis dumb or stupid. I'm sure you tell your kids not to call people "stupid." You're a grown woman. It's not classy.

Heather, you are a breath of fresh air and I love the relationship that you and your hubby have. It is not fake at all. I love the way you and your husband interact with one another and how intelligent and normal you both are good luck with your acting career

I wonder why you guys think your so much better than each other. It cracks me up to see you guys roll your eyes when someone says something you don't like but your all the same rich and spoiled and think your better than everyone else. And the way you all talk bad about each other I'm amazed you can sit there and be nice to each other face to face.

Heather, I have enjoyed watching you on the show. Finally a brunette!!!! You are pretty, talented, and smart. You have been a breath of fresh air. Thank you for resurrecting the boring scripted story lines. Question? Why weren't selected for the Pussy Cat Doll performance? You were the obvious choice and you can actually "Sing!". However, I do think reality TV is a waste of your enormous acting ability. Just saying......

Heather, I am glad to see a real person, ( Bethany is also liked for this). Unlike Alexis, I did recognize you from TV. I am happy to see something real. People are jealous of you and your husbands wealth. I have a friend from Chicago who is a lot like you, and it has nothing to do with her station in life. She just knows who she is and says it straight. It just isn't something most people aren't used to. I like it. I am so tired of the Fabulous Fake people.

When you first came onto the show I really liked you. Honestly I thought wow they finally got it right. I was wrong :( What I see is a person that looks beautiful and than colors it with all the ugliness inside. It is so sad you are so opinionated regarding Alexis. Seriously, can't you see that she is a decent person. She play a dumb blonde every once in awhile but she isn't cruel, I don't see where she is trying to impress anyone. I see her as a pretty cool person devoted to her husband, her children and her faith. not bad qualities in a person from where I sit. Take off your rose colored glasses when you are talking to Tamara and realize that is the person you should call a phoney, or a person that is constantly trying to impress people. I see Tamara as an old woman trying to hang onto her youth. She gets joy from putting others down. I really hope you don't turn into that person yourself. Step back and re-evaluate do you really think Tamara is a nice person? i don't see it. If she can talk badly about her best friend Vicki they way she does, do you really think she isn't talking about you also? Its dissappointing to me that you are not the breath of fresh air that I thought you were going to be. Being educated has nothing to do with kindness. try working on that one.

Heather what a pleasure to have you on the show. I laugh about the helicopter if I remember it was your friends and she sent it to you to ride, so many people are wrong or maybe I misunderstood. But I never hear you talk about money and just by seeing your home you could buy and sell everyone of those other housewives, but you dont talk about it. I wish I could afford a Prius they arent cheap they are just economical and good for your hubby driving one. Alexis and her husband for some reason have the need to play like they have money. If they have so much money they would own their own home rent is a throw away of good money. Alexis, I am sure doesn't Have any jewelry that would need to be apraised, but does like to wear that huge ring to impress people not sure that it is real. The old saying those that have it dont brag about it and those that dont do brag about it. You keep it so real and stay so calm when in a confrontation I love that about you. Your hubby is great, so funny and just fun to have on the show. Thank you for the refreshing change.

Bravo to Bravo for adding Heather to the cast! She has beauty & Brains, something Alexis lacks. Alexis Is a bimbo. Heather has class & elegance. She & Vicky have it all & are examples of powerful women of Excellence!

Hi Heather, You should be envied.....I just watched the epi where you were debating if you should get back into acting with all the hours that it could possibly include. I know how long the hours could be, because I am a stand-in on a TV show right now and the leads and exra's, as well as myself sometime work from call time 5am to 7pm so what you say is correct. But you have the greatest husband to support you and help you sort this out without being selfish and not seeing your side of things which he totally got. You know you are blessed to have such a cool down to earth husband.......Cut to Alexis and the "dumbed down" version of basically the same conversation LOL, poor Alexis and her controlling, caveman of a husband not only is she clueless about needing a acting coach instead of and English coach but she also thinks she is doing well on Fox 5.....LMAO

Heather...you come off too over bearing with your husband...cutting him off when he speaks and/or speaking for him. Telling him how long to play with his children. When to shower. What to wear...etc. Knock it off please. At least when the cameras are rolling. It's not a good look. Just sayin'.

Heather, PLEASE do NOT explain yourself to others... I'd be proud as all get out if I had an education like yours. Sadly I don't... I married very young (16) and had two kids by the time I was 18 going on 19 and never went back to school. (I have common sense, am book and street smart but it's not the same to me) So I am envious of anyone who is smart and has gone up the ladder to a higher learning.

I just "heart" you and that cutie pie hubby of yours, so much so that I actually feel attacked and have to defend Terry every time someone disses him, crazy I know. LOL

Can't wait to read your next blog and see tonight's show.

Bye for now! :)

I'm sorry to disagree with most of you regarding Heather. I find her to be a "snob". I think she thinks she is better that the other housewives an doesn't have a problem telling that to everyone. Just because you have an education and are "rich" doesn't give you the right to "snub" everyone. I am waiting for "what goes around, comes around." It always catches up!!

mederma

it's funny how a lot of people think Heather is snobby and pretentious; but Alexis is the one always talking about money, cars and how much things cost, how often has Heather done that on the show and everyone, even Gretchen seems to feel that Alexis doesn't listen and comes across as "stupid" and a little bit envious.

You are a great addition to an otherwise boring and cat fight of a show. I enjoy your intraction with the other ladies (and I use that term loosely),and it is so refreshing to have someone like yourself on the show. Your husband seems pretty cool and down to earth too. Hope to see more of you both this season.

I thought you were one of the more intelligent Housewives until you uttered the gobbledygook about wanting to "reduce your carbon footprint" in the last episode. I mean, please. You live in a hotel-sized home, you think nothing of jetting to L.A. in a helicopter, and I've never seen you take a bus on any episode. If it eases your conscience that "Terry drives a Prius," okay. But, please, don't get holier than thou about wanting to reduce your carbon footprint. Spouting political correctness made you look really stupid, Heather. That was cheesy at best.

HEATHER,

YOU ARE AN INTELLIGENT WOMAN WHO IS NOT AFRAID TO SHOW WHO SHE IS, HOWEVER--WITH THESE GIRLS--YOU MAY NEED TO TAKE IT DOWN A NOTCH. ALEXIS IS NOT JEALOUS OF YOU---ALEXIS IS INSECURE WITH HERSELF. GIVE HER A CHANCE, AND YOU'LL SEE PAST THE OBVIOUS FRONT AND SEE HER FOR WHO SHE IS, NOT WHO TAMRA TELLS YOU SHE IS. TAMRA HAS HAD A VERY MEAN STREAK, AND WHEN SHE GETS REALLY BAD WHILE ATTACKING SOMEONE, I.E. (LAST EPISODE, PAST SEASON), THEN SHE CRIES AND FAKES BEING WOUNDED. NOW, AFTER HER BEING OUTED FOR THE WITCH SHE'S BEEN W/ VICKI AS HER PARTNER IN CRIME, SHE IS TRYING TO REINVENT HERSELF. THE VIEWERS ARE NOT AS LAME AS BRAVO PRODUCERS THINK....

Heather I love that you are on the show, you are intelligent and your observations are right on. I can see how you know when to not say something and I do not think anything that you have said is offensive at all. Some with less intelligence will make mountions out of molehills because thats all the can do. Stay true to yourself, you are a great addition!

My best friend and I discussed you on a recent "girls trip" and we are both in argreement that you are the BEST housewife ever...very classy. I don't come from a family of means...I work hard at my job and will never see money like you all...BUT...I do NOT see you as being snobby or acting as if you're better than others because of money. Heck, you & your husband have worked hard for it so enjoy it...I'm sure Alexis saw the episode where you took the girls on a helicoptor ride and it killed her with jealously because she knows she'd never be invited...nor have wealthy friends like yours that could own a helicopter...I love your style, your husband, and you...Keep it up!

I for one appreciate the sense of level headed mess you bring to the show. Like you, I tell things as I see them and I am thrilled to see someone like that on the show. It's clear that Alexis is envious and doesn't know how to handle it. Stick to being yourself and don't apologize for that. You are exactly what this show needed...a dose of reality!

Love you Heather!! You are not being mean or rude at all. Rather, you are saying it as it is, not being insulting, but truthful. Everyone else engages in pure passive-aggressiveness while you are a straight-shooting New Yorker. I take it that you simply will not play the games all the others always have the need to be engaged in. And I don't believe as others say that you think you're better than everyone else - you just won't stoop to their level, that's all. As for your dealings with Alexis, you muse and ask very pertinent questions that I think anyone with a modicum of intelligence and common sense would since her facade and the reality don't match. Stay the course, be yourself - you are fantastic!

Heather, Being a person of higher education, one valuable lesson I did learn. Respect and humility are important when you want to represent yourself as an educated woman. Nobody likes a educated snob. Regardless of the person you are speaking to. And Heather, you are speaking to millions.

I think the problem with you or any new Housewife is you judge too quickly the other Housewives.Thats not very classy,not to mention mature.If it were me,I would totally back off the opinions and observe for a while,maybe you would have different impressions of the Housewives

Bravo to Heather! No pun intended... What a breath of fresh air! A smart, funny, intelligent, well traveled, well read, classy, and actually wealthy lovely addition. Heather, you used words like accoutrement and algorithm around Alexis? She doesn't understand, I'm afraid. Don't you apologize for being educated!
