Heather Dubrow

Heather shares her desires for the other ladies and her acting career.

on May 17, 20120

I hope everyone had a great Mother's Day and spent lots of special family time! The weather has warmed up in California -- feels like summer is on its way!

I was very flattered that Slade asked me to go ring shopping! Gretchen and Slade have been together for over three years and it seems like the obvious next step.

I was a little concerned to hear that Gretchen's dad was not completely on board with the idea of them getting engaged right now, but Gretchen is an adult and can make her own decisions. We had a lot of fun looking at all of the different options, so much bling!

When we finally found the "rock" that was perfect for Gretchen, I was thrilled. Slade threw me for a loop (no pun intended) when he suggested a fake stone. I tried to steer him away from that idea. The truth is, they love each other and, as Slade said, the ring is a symbol. The size of the ring isn't relevant; just opening your heart and making that commitment is the key. I like Slade a lot, and I know how much he loves Gretchen. I was hopeful this would work out.

My sister really wants to be an actress and is seeking advice so I would like to ask you if you could reply my question is how did you become a successful actress?

Mrs Dubrow you add an element of cool Class, similar to those lovely ladies of the East Coast/NYC. How can you maintain a friendship With these OC girls who are totally self absorbed, Insecure and behave ungraciously in your Home when hosting a lovely party in your Honor. Their toxic behavior is ugly...that's Why they live in the burbs of OC. How do you Tolerate their immature behavior?

You love the drama. You are used to acting......you love the drama.

You mentioned singing with a big band. Any audio/video footage of those performances online? If you're ever "taking requests," I would enjoy hearing you perform two old (and funny) Gershwin tunes: (1) The Blah-Blah song and (2) the "Babbitt Met a Bromide" song. IMHO, music might be preferable to acting as a remedy for whatever "cabin fever" issues you may currently face. Whatever window of eligibility might be closing in the acting realm, now might be the perfect time for jazz/cabaret singing (i.e. old/smart enough to interpret music at a high level but no age-related health issues to erode your voice).

Heather I just had to say I love watching you and Tony! You two are fantastic. Very refreshing addition to the show. People who view you as fake are jealous of your strength and the bond you two have togehter.

heather you are great. when i saw you for the first episode i did not have kind words. but as the show moves forward i am so impressed with your values. alexis is jealous of you. (hopefully the show removes her) can not believe what she did with her surgery. you have made the other women better and lets hope vicki changes or leaves the show. tks for being you.

Heather, you are such a true example of elegance and grace. Not to mention, I love your sense of humor! You are such a great addition to the show!

I think your such a wonderful addition to the show. I love your sense of humor and your natural beauty. You have been blessed with a fabulous life but still remain down to earth and seem to really care about people. Best wishes with all your endeavors.

One more thing, we all love you so much, & you have seriously brought the OC housewives back to life. Now, be careful, & I don't envy you, but housewives tend to be very petty to the most beloved housewife. I know you are strong & can lead & not be brought down though. Best wishes, a Heather fan, xo!

Dear Heather, I like you!!! I have stuck with this season, (of which in the past I get too frustrated with the crazy ladies), because of you! Please do not ever show a side of you that is extremely unkind & has a bully & gang up mentality like Tamra. I will keep watching as long as there is a mature nice person like you, on the show!

You are so much fun! I even like Tamra now because she brought you on the show! I love your relationship with the ladies and your hubby is adorable. I got tearful when you told him that you changed your name and he choked up... Don't change how you are because of comments from the haters A.K.A. Alexis fans..they obviously have no appreciation for the real grace, intelligence and class you bring to the show as opposed to Miss Fake Boobs and "My real diamond is locked in the Safe." I'm sure Alexis appeals to the trailer-trash element she came from...when she just brushed off mis-pronouncing Katie Couric's name as just being a "Lexi-ism" I realised this woman is dumber than a bag of hammers and doesn't care enough to correct it!! You and Caroline from New Jersey are my favorite housewives! Stay strong!!

Love you and Terry on the show. Just a warning. You will find yourself in way more drama than you want if you stay involved with these ladies. Hate to see that happen to you. It seems your level head will get sucked into it somehow. Be careful. You are a great addition to the show.

Heather I enjoy watching all the RH shows fron Orange County to New York, but have had to stop watching specific ones at times (Atlanta) because these ladies change and not for the better. I hope you keep your feet grounded and don't get caught up in the hype that takes these women from classy to trashy in an instant.

Watching you tell your hubs you changed your name was wayyyy cool. I never changed mine completely until after 20 years of marriage, I wish my hubs would have been as excited as yours. Let him tell his silly jokes and be dorky because its obvious that he makes you smile.

You know I didn't think I was gonna care for you too much Heather but you have really surprised me....I love you on the show--in my opinion, you put most of the other "ladies" to shame with their actions. Normally rich people are so fake but you are really down to earth and I enjoy what you bring and will be bringing to the show....you are very classy!!!!!!!

Love Love Love you and your husband. I love both of your dry intellignets sense of humor and you two are a great addition to the show. I hope you continue as a cast member of OC housewives, but also are able to persue TV and movie roles if they are right for you, if you can find the time. It is important for women to keep something for ourselves that we enjoy even if that means you need a little help with the kids. In the end it will make you happy. Although I am not a fan of Teresa from Jersey housewives husband he is right about one thing. Happy wife=Happy life and mother. You have great comedic timing and would love to see you on another sit-com. Best to you and your family

Ahhh, I personally think you have a high opinion of yourself & are into bashing Alexis. You do LOVE the drama. You tend to stir things up quite abit too. Great to have you on the show, but I'm just saying.

I love you! Just saw last night's episode, and got teary eyed! That just doesn't happen to me with reality t.v. You are either a great actress, or despite your money, you are still real. Pretty real, anyway. And, your last name does make me think of an eyebrow when I see it, but who cares? That is YOUR families' name! Besides, eyebrows are sexy!!!

Hello Heather from a fellow East Coast Heather! I HAVE to tell you how touching it was to watch you surprise Terry with the last name change. His reaction was so sweet and heartwarming! You both had the most genuine loving smiles on your faces. What a blessing you have. Love watching the show!

Hi Heather! I'm a fellow Westchesterite (Town of Harrison - right outside of White Plains) and I just LOVE watching you on the show! Your personality is true Westchester and I know that's the reason so many viewers love you. I feel like I'm watching a friend from home when I watch you on the show. I can't pinpoint what it is but there's a wonderful familiarity to you. I LOVE IT!!!! You and Terry have such a warm loving relationship and I wish you an eternity of marriage. I look forward to seeing you every week for a very long time to come. God bless!

Heather pay no mind to the haters. They are jealous ;) And I would advise you to steer clear of Gretchen. Nothing but trouble that one. Keep being fabulous!!! TEAM HEATHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Heather,

I agree you are a breath of fresh air to this show. You seem to be not like the other girls, caddy and shallow. You bring a level headedness to the show too. I do think Gretchen is like you and Tamra is not far behind. As for Alexis and Vicki, they both are just a mess, just different messes.

Heather, You are the only one on that show that has it all together. You have a great marriage, and you handle yourself with confidence and class. I do however think you may regret putting so much merit into the things that Tamra says about others. She backstabs Everyone, as you will see. I feel like you let her opinions of Alexis bias you from the get go, instead of meeting her first and then forming your own opinion. You are, by far, the most genuine and likeable housewife. And your husband is a gem. Don't let the likes of Tamra and Vicki change you. Best to you :~)

Tamara is a great friend. Love how she threw Terry under the bus in her attempt to humiliate Alexis more! Great friend! Keep your friends close and your enemies closer! You've got both with Tamara! Alexis appeared to genuinely want to mend the relationship. To bad she's just a jealous mean girl! Ouch!

Heather - You are the best thing to happen to this show in a long time! You and your adorable husband are so great together - it is so obvious how much he loves you and supports you - how wonderful! I like that you are good friends with Tamra and Gretchen, and loved that you all participated in the mud run - what fun! It appears to me that Alexis is intimidated by you and will try to "one-up" you as she has done with her other friends, in particular, former cast member Peggy. It really is pitiful to watch her sometimes. I would also keep my guard up with Vicki. She appears to be a control freak who must dominate all of her relationships. It was ridiculous how petty and jealous she was when Tamra became friends with Gretchen. I was also appalled at how she made Brianna's surgery all about her, and how it would affect her, not her daughter. Anyway, I would just be careful around her. I hope you continue on the show; you are a delight to watch!

I think you are a great addition to the show. You bring humility where there is none. How ironic, huh? You're real and I hope you can influence the others. You're not one to jump to an opinion, you're fair, honest and carry yourself with such grace and class. RHOC needed class and you brought it. Be careful of Vicki. If you don't agree with Vicki, you're out. The fact that you don't work until midnight every night is three strikes against you in her book. You need to handle that woman with kid gloves. She's a hot mess. Stay sane. The show needs you.

Sooooooo glad you/hubby focused on the positive and didn't bash Alexis. Kind of the old...if you have nothing nice to say, don't say nothing at all : ) I really was waiting for the bash. The idea your giving Slade a chance is great! I like him...see his negatives...but he is a person who has been given a raw deal with the economy. Slade seems to support Gretchen and that is truly how it should be between partners...kudos to him. Tamra sure fake cries when she wants something...like a ring GMAB. Dummy knew her marriage was on the rocks when she did this.

Heather, as if not mentioning Alexis in your blogs is going to erase the HOURS you've spent this season obsessively talking about her. Further, those of us with eyes and ears who have been watching this season can tell you that your posturing in trying to convince us that you are somehow above the drama because you don't mention her in writing, and it will somehow translate into you taking the high road, a la Vicki, is unbelievable.

Heather is like a breath of fresh air on this show! Just the shot of common sense and warmth that it needed. She seems so sincere. I love it when she goes to a restaurant and thanks the staff. She seems so gracious and classy. And her husband adores her. Heather is an awesome addtion to the cast. Thanks so much.
