I drove with Vicki because I wanted to get to know Briana. This was the first time I had met her. It was so funny watching the mother/daughter dynamic between them. Laughing one minute and fighting the next -- then back to laughing. It made me miss my Mom.
The other thing is we laughed a lot on this trip -- from the fire, to the cooking, and even to the skunk!!! We also had A LOT of s'mores and wine! Alexis and I also had a chuckle over our matching head wraps the next day!
After we had breakfast Vicki and I took a hike. It was really nice to spend that time with her. Vicki shared a lot of details with me about her relationship with Brooks.
The other girls drove up and met us at the top where there was this great farm. We got to hang out and feed the alpacas. Really fun way to end the trip.
The next couple of episodes are pretty crazy. Hope you enjoyed this little break from the drama!
I truly enjoy your vocabulary on the show Heather! Its such a refreshing change from some of the nonsense that gets shown over and over. I'm glad you are not apologizing for who you are and your knowledge. I enjoy watching you on this show. You don't seem to get caught up in the drama, but you don't act like you are above it either. You just smile and nod... :)
I wasn't sure about you Heather but, I have to say I am a fan. You are smart, witty, and not a grifter.. ahem Alexis.
I don't think you have to apologize for being educated you were only giving her your opinion and like always she seems to take it the wrong way. I think you are a wonderful addition to the show and you can show these girls a thing or two.
Ok, I am no Alexis fan ... I find myself saying, "Bless her heart," throughout every episode. But oh. my. God. Can Heather lay off? Every single outtake of her is another dig at Alexis. It's really ugly to see a woman do this to another woman. Alexis is so harmless (bless her heart). Why does Heather so concern herself with Alexis' every comment or gesture? It does indeed seem that downing Alexis makes Heather feel superior to her, and It really makes me dislike Heather.
It's called jealousy! Tamra even called her "uppity" Although, Tamra has something mean to say about everyone!
You obviously have been blessed with gorgeous skin, but for those of us over forty what are your suggestions. Like what kind of special pillow were you talking about. Anyway love that you are super smart and would love if you would share
Heather it seems like you think you are better than everyone and come across snobby and stuck up. I don't understand why you have it out for Alexis? I think you keep talking badly about Alexis to make yourself feel better, I think your just jealous of her. A well educated person should know not to be rude
The truly intellegent people in my life are the ones who do not have to talk about being smart. You think you are so much better than anyone else, yet you harp on Alexis so much that is completely obvious that you are either jealous of her or threatened by her. It makes you look weak.
We love you down here in Texas!!! These girls NEED you in their life, trust me. Alexis is intimidated by you - that is why she is always bragging about her possessions, and doing that one-upping B.S. I can't stand. Alexis is jealous of your lifestyle, and her making fun of you saying you're an actress? She knows darned well that you WERE an actress, don't think that b!tch didn't google you, I would bet money she has googled and been all up in your online business. LOVE YOU and your awesome family! Thank you for bringing classy back into the O.C. - this Jerry Springer B.S. was getting old and boring. I would say don't let them get you down, but I don't need to - I KNOW you won't! Forgive them for envying you, and well, let's face it, most of those ladies are NOT your intellectual equal (Alexis) and that is a FACT.
Anyone would be jealous of her lifestyle that doesn't mean she's a good person or respectable either. Classy? NO WAY! Classy people do not need to put others down to make themselves feel better. If you're on TV you should be a good example.
No one expects you to apologize for being smart. You should apologize for being rude. Your relentless attack on Alexis doesn't make you look intelligent. It just makes you look like a mean girl trying to stay relevant.
I think you're cool. Though to be entirely honest, I think you'd be a lot more likeable/relatable if you were to, say, lose your fortune for a year or two. I think that might shake some of the somewhat pretentious attitude off and let us see the real Heather. Because she seems like she could be super amazing. Mostly I see her there but then there's a tinge of that privileged attitude that shows and leaves me feeling a little disappointed. But none of us are perfect and I do think that you try your absolute best with everyone.
But I definitely enjoy watching you and I love that you keep it real with Alexis. And you looked so great at the bowling party. I just kept staring at your face, like wow! Sounds creepy, but your skin was glowing, your makeup was on point and I loved that sequined top.
Alexis may not be brilliant, but you are not exactly a rocket scientist yourself Heather. Your major achievment seems to have been marrying a rich plastic surgeon. So knock off the endless insults to a woman who is basically kind.
You can be educated without being a condescending know-it-all. Why do you need to CONSTANTLY bash Alexis? A highly educated woman like yourself must have more interesting comments to make.
Thank goodness someone very smart has joined the cast. Alexis is clearly trying to keep up with you and she doesn't have a prayer. You are smart, classy and logical and she is struggling with a very below average IQ. Not a good match for friendship, but I guess a bit entertaining to watch.
Heather, I was glad to hear that you are concerned about your carbon footprint. Part of the problem is the wealthiest of Americans feel that because they can afford to consume, consume, consume that they should go ahead and do it, but they forget about how their actions affect the rest of the world. Having houses that are far bigger than is necessary to comfortably house a family is just one huge energy SUCK! Even though I can afford a bigger home for my family of 4, I would feel like a complete jerk having a house over 3,000 square feet. People should start to downsize so the builders will stop building these harmful monstrosities.
I find you very refreshing with class, please don't let the other ladies pull you in to their childness. Please stay & teach these ladies a thing or two.
Did you really care that they didn't have the correct wine glasses in the cabin in the woods? Just wondering. Around here, we call that a dig.
I can see how Alexis could challenge one's patience, but you should stop making snarky digs at her. It makes you look jealous and petty, when you really have many fan-favorite qualities. Restrain yourself with Alexis, try to see something good in her. Tamra poisoned the well on that one, and it would be prudent for you, as an educated person, to figure this one out for yourself. Don't just listen to Tamra. She's a little jealous of Alexis, in spite of Alexis' questionable finances and strange spouse. Alexis is lovely, as are you, and you may have more in common than you think.
Heather, I hope you feel sad watching this episode because of the comments you continuously made about Alexis. Making fun of people, calling them names and mocking someone is not classy, sophisticated or dignified. Putting Alexis down does not make you look better just insecure, mean and maybe even a little jealous.
Can you please lay off Alexis? You're acting like a mean girl in High School. Why did you go glamping if you were going to be so negative about Alexis? You have become the new MEAN GIRL on the show.
You are smart... Nothing wrong with that... Alexis needs to take a few more courses.. She has that look in her eye, that says... I dont know what the hell your talking about.. You are refreshing.. and totally real... Its good for this show.. We needed you..Thank YOU! Shannon
Just because you are educated, doesn't mean you should talk down to people that aren't as intelligent as you. Lex has her reasons for renting her house, and that's really none of your business. And for a woman to call another woman dumb is just gross.
Is it just me or does Alexis seem to be a bit of a bragger, also does the girl ever listen? Heather you have more patience than most people would have. I think the other ladies have just gotten used to Alexis inability to listen to a single word. Alexis constantly interrupts a conversation to start competing...Example; Heather talking about a Prius, then Alexis interrupts trying to "One Up" Heather and begins listing all of her cars....If she and Jim lost their house to a foreclosure then why do they have 5 cars for 2 people? And why was Alexis trying to compete with you? She did the same thing to Peggy last season.. I think deep down Alexis wants to be accepted but is unsure how to act socially because she is a bit dense...
I can't see you lasting in the show you bring nothing to it! and all you do is throw little digs at alexis because you so badly wanna be tamra's friend!
Heather, I do not know why they call you Fancy Pants when you do all the work. YOU started the fire, YOU cooked the food, YOU cleaned up the trash, Alexis just kept calling Jeremy to do everything she acted like such a princess. You are classy, witty and a great part of this show.
I just love you!!! Its great to have someone who is so graceful on the show. Please be careful of Vickie and Tamar they are two faced vipers
I think you are a great addition to this show. Definitely know how to handle yourself well and love that you read and are open to meeting and learning from new people. You were very diplomatic in how you took care of that awkward Sarah situation. Plus, it’s great when they show you with your husband and kids in your beautiful home! However, your constant mean-spirited comments towards Alexis are plain ugly. They make you look petty and unpleasant to watch. There must be another way to pass the time rather than blabber on about things you find annoying in your cast mate.
I am liking you more and more Heather but come on, you are just being this way to Alexis because of Tamra. If Tamra wasn't always saying how stupid Alexis is, (and she made sure to point that out to you first thing,) I don't think you would be treating her like this. I don't understand why Tamra hates Alexis so much anyway. I think she's pretty harmless. I do think she is probably jealous of you but give her a break. She tries to fit in and I think she can be defensive because she probably has some insecurities. So lay off her a bit can you? And as for her wearing a fake ring---LOTS of people including alot of celebrities do the same thing Heather so don't act like it's so bizarre. If you want to wear your real ring fine, but don't bash her for keeping her real one safe. It's not that big of a deal !!
Are you trying to buy everyones affections or announce to everyone hey I am rich? You dig at just about everyone and sit there with a snide look on your face. Granted it is easier to watch you than Vicki or Tamara, but, I am so over your snobbish ways.
I adore you...not cuz your uber rich or beautiful, that is a bonus for me. I just think you have 'it'. It's hard to explain, really. Smart, intuitive, a sensibility that I have not seen in a long time. I won't name names, but when people try too hard to be fabulous, it shows. I think you ARE fabulous, and all we need to do is watch and listen to know that. Keep being you, because it is very refreshing. Your husband cracks me up. You both are very playful and down to earth. So nice to see in such a pretentious world. Be well, Kate.
I was slow to warm up to you, but I find you refreshing and funny. You make me laugh...hard. Thanks.
Heather, you are intelligent and educated. Alexis very intimidated by you, for many reason, her insecurity and brainless comments about ...everything is sooo ridicules. To me, just hard to watch. (and a great shame) You are wonderful. (and right in many things about those "ladies")
You are so classy and smart. I am so happy you are in this season of OC Housewives. What pillowcase do you use to reduce sleep wrinkles and fine lines? Thank you for being yourself and honest.
Thank goodness you were along on the glamping trip! Vicki would still be trying to light that fire-lol! I agree with your suspicions about Alexis. Some of her remarks about her things just do not ring true. Watch your back-Vicki will turn on you in a heartbeat if you cross her.
heather alexis is so much more than you.lay off her bussiness. its none of your bussiness.you are not even her friend.go away you should not of went on the trip.why would alexis buy you a scarf.she is way to nice for you and she shows much more class.if a friend wants to give advice that is one thing but you are not her friend and do not deserve to be unless you change your mean girl ways.you and tamra are to -for the show.team lexie all the way.bravo please print for heather.
Dear Ms. Dubrow, An important characteristic of an "educated" woman is to maintain confidence in her smarts, and NOT feel the need to advertise how "smart" she is at every turn. Why constantly berate Alexis? That is not a "wise" thing to do, its very school-girl. And school girls are not yet out of elementary school, so...based on their level of education, ITS SAFE TO SAY that you behave like someone with a 6th grade EDUCATION. Alexis is who she is, perhaps a bit naive. SO WHAT...You are calculating and condescending to anyone you think is not as "wordly & educated" as you believe yourself to be. Seriously, the mere fact that you are on the Housewives of the OC shows how grossly UN-educated you really are. Get over yourself! You are NOT ALL THAT! Sincerely yours, The EDUCATED and DIGNIFIED ADDICT;) wink wink on the "dignified" ;) ;)
Please tell Alexis that owning a Prius is not "good for the economy", but for the environment. I would have to say that owning 6+vehicles is good for the economy, however.
when people share your background like i do they get your humor and what you are talking about...you are a much needed breath of fresh air to this show and i hope andy cohen will get rid of that grifter, bible-thumping, hypocrite,lying and phoney as they get alexis..and her obnoxious husband..i have to turn off the tv rather then listen to her stupid bs...you have a beautiful family and are a very classy lady who has begun to change the dynamic of the show..bravo needs to re-think alexis (and slade slimey) before next season...its time for the execs to clean house and see who really belongs on the orange county show and who needs to be replaced..believe me the viewers are anything but stupid...
Heather you are incredibly rude. Its not okay to keep calling someone dumb over and over and to her face (??) She took you on a nice trip and all you do is make digs at her. I hope you can see how condescending you are when you watch the video. Sometimes you seem to handle situations well, like with Sarah at bowling, but its not consistent. Like the little table you pulled over for your wine and Alexis said 'what are we supposed to do" - your response 'go get your own table'. She just had surgery! It would have been polite to just go get the damn table. She took you on this lovely camping trip. You didn't even thank her for the scarf that she took time to pick out in a style that suited you. You're not a nice person. You're the only 'scary' one on the show, not Alexis. Don't worry about apologizing for be 'intelligent', no one is thinking you are.
Great episode last night. Had to laugh when you had to explain not to light the plastic on fire. For real people! And as much as people say you dig at Alexis, she really gives you the bait. She brags a lot (and we all roll our eyes at home).
Heather--most people I know who are intellegent don't go aorund telling everyone how smart they are. And they don't continually bash someone who may not be as "smart" as they are. Does bashing Alexis make you feel smarter??
You are a refreshing change for this particular show, and I am huge fan. Although I think you "might" be better suited for the Beverly Hills show, it's nice to see how you speak your mind, and voice your opinion, only when asked.
Stay true to who you are, without apology. Best of luck on the remaining season,
