Heather commends the ladies for making bold choices -- in love, marriage, and business.

on May 9, 20120

Hi everyone!

These past couple of weeks have been so crazy! As all of you busy moms out there know, the end of the school year is jam packed! Anyway, I am getting ready to head off to a Mother's Day Tea in Katarina's classroom and realized I hadn't written a blog. . .so here goes. . .

I thought Slade asking for Gretchen's hand in marriage was very sweet. I know he is close to G's parents. It was the appropriate thing to do. Scott had a lot of good comments about marriage and relationships. He seems like a smart man. Telling Slade he has to clean up his image and debt situation before moving forward was sound advice.

Gretchen and Tamra at lunch: I'm so glad that Tamra is branching out and opening a fitness studio. She is the daughter of a small business owner. I'm sure she will do well!

 

Gretchen talking about her relationship with Slade echoes her Dad's comments from the bike ride -- she is being thoughtful and smart about her future.

I agree with the other comments from viewers for you to quit judging Alexis. I thought you were beautiful and classy when you first appeared on the show. The "housewives" have a pack mentality in that they always have to gang up on someone. This season it seems to be Alexis. Just stop it. It's not becoming. Go back to your classy self and stop behaving like Tamara, who has none.

Ever since I first saw you on the show I thought, I know this person. Finally, tonight, while watching an old movie, I realized you are a dead ringer for Susan Strasberg. Not just in looks, but in mannerisms and voice. Are you by any chance related?

Hi Heather - you and your husband are a WELCOME addition to the show. Must be the NY influence! Please stay true to who you are. You bring such a nice, quiet, bit of class to every episode. Good luck and your husband is adorable!

Heather, You need to get off this show. You seem way too normal and nice for this crazy network. No amount of advertising or promotion for your acting career is worth it! Eventually all these women are portrayed as crazy lunatics. Go home to that lovely house and family. Good luck!

Heather; being the new one I have to say that I think you are the only OC Housewife that has your ACT together!!! Maybe it's the fact that you're not a blonde air-head and realize that family and self love comes first, then everything else falls into place. Sooooooooo glad you are on the show to model what normal is....

I Love Heather and the Dr.!

1 question... Is it just me or does the door-knocker on your gorgeous front doors seem oddly high??? I think it should be more at eye/chin level.

Also- your hubby's sense of humor is exactly like my husbands. When he makes embarrassing comments I just start laughing right away so everyone knows he's joking...lol!

Keep it coming!

Love your input Heather, your a great addition to the cast. I had about given up on the show, even though I always liked Tamara and Vicki. Brooks scares me. He is a big fake I can tell, real southern gentlemen don't act the way he does they are reserved something he is not. Tell Vicki to run, run fast. Catherine

Your interaction with Terry is hysterical!!! He has a knack for saying really innappriate things and the look on your face is priceless!! Its obvious that you two have a loving marriage and these kind of spats are just annoying rather than full blown fights. Its really fun to wait and see what comes out of his mouth next!!!

Heather, you are my favorite housewife of any season. Your husband seems like such a great guy as well. I totally agree with so many things you have to say. It's nice to see a housewife that doesn't have to say nasty things to get their air time. I am NEVER late and agree with you with it being rude. I always think it is a persons way of saying their time is more valuable than yours.

I think it is interesting that you are married to a plastic surgeon but happened to be the most naturally beautiful!

Breath of FRESH air!! Thank you!! You and your husband are a great addition to the cast! All of the RH shows seem to get a bit stale once it all goes to the womens heads! As for Alexis, she may be from Oklahoma but NOT all Oklahoman's are uneducated and as naive as she. SOOOOOO glad that Jim is staying away from the camera, he was nauseating to say the least! I too agree on being late, if you cannot make it on time, do not attend, it's down right RUDE and selfish. Anyhow, just wanted to know what a pleasure it is watching you and your hubby...... you seem to compliment one another perfectly!! ;)

Still loving every second of you and the hubs on the show!! This is what the housewives franchise used to be about....fun, silly, campy, and nothing like the lives most of us get to lead! People shouldn't be critical, it's the people like YOU who were what was so addictive about the housewives in the first place. After a couple years with the same people, it becomes dry and seems scripted...everyone is too concerned about their "products" and side businesses to make watching the show about real women fun any more. It's so much more fun getting to "know" people and just watching as they go about different aspects of their lives. So, thank you Heather for keeping it real for those of us starting to lose hope! :)

Heather, you are a great addition to the cast. I love the fact that you call people out on their bs & that you had Alexis pegged from the start as the phoney she is. Hope you're having fun on the show.

I liked your addition at first but it seems like you have gotten a little arrogant. You are very judgmental and have a mean girl streak. It's not becoming nor classy. I would also like to add that have been belittling your husband quite a lot on the show & it's disheartening to watch. He's a very successful Dr. & I remember him from the show "The Swan". I really liked him & felt he had a giant heart. STOP hen pecking him. Do you realize how lucky you are and what a catch he is?? I also find it quite funny how you constantly pick on Alexis when you have issues at home yourself. A word of advice: A happy husband is a loved & appreciated one:) Plus your man is very funny & comes off as sincere. We viewers like him. So ease up a bit. K

Heather.. I so agree about people that are always late. It shows that they feel their time is more valuable than yours.. tacky! Brooks came across as inauthentic all right.. And he is. But I don't have to tell you that..do I?

I knew from the start that you will be a good addition to the show and I was not dissapointed. You and your husband are a very nice couple and are pleasant to watch when u interact with each other. I am so glad that your presence has brought some civility and a bit of class amongst the rest of the cast who are now realizing that it is actually possible to be civil and still have a blast. Episode after episode I see a slow progression of your influence on these women who in seasons past acted like a bar- bravling gangsta b/ces and now to their utter surprise are actually learning that it is possible to behave like adults without the constant need to undermine or back stab each other. Congratulations to you both on that magical achievement.

How is it "rude" and "harsh" to say it's rude when people are late, even if that person knows you're referring to them??? It is RUDE to be late to events, PERIOD.

Love you Heather: for your quick wit, great marriage, class, intelligence, and recognizing that being "fashionably on time" is really just being "self-centeredly late" ;)

Love Terry, love the corny jokes! Let him speak his mind and don't be embarrassed, he can explain for himself! Cut Alexis some slack though, no one is perfect. If any one needs to explain themselves.....it is BROOKS! He is the fake one!

Your blog was the only one I enjoyed reading. Succinct, positive (mostly - lol) and SO true! Nothing against Alexis, but being habitually late IS arrogant and disrespectful. It shouts "My time is more valuable." One of my pet peeves too.

Heather, you are a great addition to this cast... Although I tend to think you would fit in better on the BH wives. It is nice to see a woman my age on the shows, a REAL housewife, who possesses intelligence and maturity. It must be challenging, living in a sea of bottle blondes with big boobs. I don't know how you do it. Plus, Terry is successful, a great father, supportive husband with a fun sense of humor - which makes him the most attractive husband of all the HW series in my book. My husband is a doctor as well, and sometimes I wonder about what he sees for patients or nurses he works with. That's hard enough to rise above. I doubt I'd want him around the likes of Gretchen and Tamra, or the Pussycat Dolls! Clearly you are a very secure woman. I admire you. Wish I could ask your advice on how you do it.

You don't need me to tell you how lucky you are. You are the only housewife with whom I would trade places! Collette is just beautiful. Ironically, if I'd had a daughter, I would have named her Collette also.

Good luck staying your sophisticated self while hanging around this tacky crew. (Who uses the term "douche bag?" Gross!) Hope the white trash doesn't eventually bring you down to their level. Keep rising above!

Please take this into consideration. You might want to watch the last couple of years of housewives of Oc. You treat your husband a lot like Vicki treated Donn. Once Terry sees how disrespectful you are to him and how foolish you make him appear...he might not like it very much. It could be damaging to his practice for people to see how you treat him like a dumb dog- verbally slapping him down all the time. If he didn't have money, you wouldn't be around, is my guess. You treat him like he is an embarrassment or an idiot. Also, ever consider that Alexis might be late because she is trying to juggle the kiddos and get them ready for the sitter. Have a little compassion and please stop judging. Really, all it does it make you look bitter and catty.

Thank you for being an authentic and NORMAL (well, as normal as one gets living in a multi-million dollar home and appearing on television) addition to this season. I think you are right on with your assessments of the other wives and your comments about Alexis are always hilariously true! I would actually be disappointed if you became friends with her because you are so much better than that white trash wannabe. You and Terry need your own spin-off series...Bu-Jews maybe???? LOL

I think you are a great addition to the show. Love the little sidebar explanations you give for your husbands behavior. Gotta love him too! So far you have been the voice of reason when everyone gets crazy. You live a life most of your viewers, and some of your co- stars, can only dream about. I listen every week to all these women poke jabs at each other over whatever endeavors they may be pursuing. With the exception of Vicki and yourself, where would any of them be if they were not on this show? I would think they would be more supportive of each other especially given the fact that Bravo can end their 15 minutes of fame, so to speak, at any time! Alexa is a cartoon character, Tamra is an attention -----, Gretchen is a barbie, and for what it's worth, Sarah is..... Uhh who is she? Nevertheless, I have to admit the evil side of me does enjoy watching them tear each other down!

Heather, Nice blog, although you still manage to take a dig at Alexis. Well some things never change. In my opinion, maybe Allexis is always late because you and Tamra are always taking shots at her. So be nicer and maybe she will start showing up on time. Hey, who wants to hang around catty women. You have not been very nice to her at all. At least she did show up. Better late than never.

Heather,

I absolutely love you and your husband!! I think that your blog has a lot of good comments and I agree with you about being late. Don't listen to the haters who are drinking the 'Alexis Kool-Aide" She obviously has some issues and insecurities since she has to be so competitive all the time even with her supposed best friend Gretchen. To read in her blog that she not only contacted Fox 5 after Gretchen left a couple episodes ago but then to hear on WWHL that she had them create a contract promising that they did not do it nor would they do it, is absolutely ridiculous. Not only is that showing her insecurities but it is also validating what a terrible friend she really is to not only Gretchen but any other woman that she would be-friend. You are wise to keep your distance and I truly believe that you are a great judge of character! I agree with you about Brooks. When he was talking about Ryan and Mike it was very creepy the way he was talking and it definitely came across like he was trying too hard. I also feel for Briana because you could tell that the last thing that she wanted to do was meet Brooks at that time. I feel like Vicki was trying to almost get back at her for eloping which makes me uncomfortable. Vicki should have had her children meet Brooks in private if she knew that they were both so uncomfortable with the idea. I thought that was wrong on all parts and it just proved to be an awkward situation for everyone. No wonder Briana was rude to him, I would have been too! Again, I think that you are a great addition to the show this season and I do not think that you are being overly rude or mean to Alexis. She is really showing her true colors this season and they are not pretty colors. By the end of this season it seems like she is not going to have any friends with the way she has been behaving!! Hope that you have a great Mother's Day!

Heather, I like how you kept your blog clean and didn't take this opportunity to bash anyone. I am still on the fence about you, but with how you stay out of the drama and you give everyone the same opportunity to prove their worth etc to you. I like that.
