Heather Dubrow

Heather explains how she felt about the mud run and Terry's new clothes.

on Apr 4, 20120

OMG! If you follow me on Twitter (@heatherdubrow) you will already know this, but Collette FINALLY took her first steps!!! It was soooo exciting! We got it on video. The whole family was there!!! What a fantastic moment!

I want to apologize for not writing a blog for the last episode. This is such a crazy time of year with the kids and time got away from me. So I'd like to make a few comments before launching into tonight's episode.

When I watched the last episode, it struck me that the viewers will actually get to see who I am. The scenes with Terry and the kids in our home were so us. I loved them. We are silly, fun, messy, and certainly not perfect -- but we love each other so much. I love having this time in my children's lives documented like that! This is the moment in the series where I was relaxed enough and felt like myself.

The day we spent in L.A. was SO fun! We all had a great time. I loved being able to share it with Tamra and Vicki. Tamra has been so great to me since the day we met, and this was a wonderful opportunity for Vicki and I to get to know each other better. Wonderful day of food, Champs, and most importantly, friendship. I want to especially thank my dear friends Jaye and Peter Adderton for loaning us their helicopter. They are the loveliest, most generous people. We are blessed to have them in our lives. (And for those of you who asked, sorry, she is taken! My stunning friend Jaye is HAPPILY married!)

I very much enjoyed watching the dynamic between you and your husband, you seem to get along like a house on fire and that is nice to see. I do find you to be very condescending at times though, especially towards Alexis and it makes for uncomfortable watching ,you appear to of been influenced by Tamra and I just hope you try to see Alexis for who she is, and not what Tamra has told you she is. Tamra clearly comes across as a two-faced snake so be careful. Stay classy Heather.

Heather, I love you and your husband! I think you are a great addition to the show because Lord knows the show needed someone like you. You have an elegance that was lacking in this show-I mean everybody talks so highly of the O.C. so you would think that there would have been more elegance a long time ago but there wasn't. And of course you bring that great sophistication from the Big Apple with you. I am born and raised in the Bronx, NY and very proud of it!! Alot of good people have come from NY and you are one of them. Terry is great. He seems so very down to earth and he did not deserve the way Alexis spoke to him. She had no respect, as I wrote in Alexis' blog, your husband studied hard to achieve the title of Doctor so I did not like the way she said, "yeah I know where the sinuses are Doc!" Very sarcastic, just the proof that she does not and probably will never have the elegance that you have. I love your kids. They seem so well behaved. They are all adorable! I love you and I do hope you return for another season and maybe they'll get rid of someone. I'm not going to say any names. Well, best of luck to you and your girlfriends on the planning of your new restaurant. Bring some of that good NYC cooking and variety to the O.C. You know NY has the best restaurants, we have every type under the sun. It's great, there is no place like it-no matter what some people may think of NY. Keep bringing that class and sophistication to the show-you do it very well. God bless you and your family.

Clearly your intelligence is at a level the others girls can't understand. I don't know how you can tolerate them.

You are the only one on the show who shows class. You don't get into drama like the other women and try to always break up fights. You are pleasant while doing that which probably isn't easy to do. People are bashing you because you are wealthy but I think you are the sweetest one. I'm sure if the people bashing you were as rich, they would probably like the finer things in life too. That doesn't make you a snob at all. Love you.

Hi Heather, Please be careful around Tamara and Vicky, they aren't your friends. That said, you do have some lovely friends, and I hope your business is an amazing success! Best of luck on the restaurant!

I have been blessed to have a mother who was born and raised in New York and the opportunity to have been born and raised in Orange County (Newport Beach) myself. Your comments about the lack of just about everything Orange County has to offer shows really how small your world is. My suggestion to you....live outside of that CHAMPS box you live in and add something to the world instead of simply looking out through those CHAMPS colored windows. Of all the ladies on the show you Heather are the most cringe worthy.

Loved you and your husband on this week's show. Your comments regarding Sarah's behavior were hysterical.

I agree with the poster who said that Terry needs to keep his mouth shut regarding the other ladies. I've never seen a man gossip so much and take so many jabs at people he hardly even knows! (And before anyone mentions Slade.....let me say that Slade is the exception....and he has been justified in his comments about Vicki & Tamra). It makes Terry look foolish and petty. Perhaps he's just been listening to you, Heather. ??? Hmmm....

Heather, I really hope you read these blogs because I don't care what anyone says... my husband and I love you!! We can relate to you and Terry so much! I think he is hilarious and we love the way you put things in perspective! You are not one to say anything negative to anyone or about anyone until you see them attack you or someone else close to you. As I'm watching these episodes, my thought is; Jesus, everytime this new girl and her husband have been around the group, some major fighting is going on! Scary!! It was really a relief to see how well the mud run went and lunch afterwards, did you notice because there was no Alexis or Crazy Sarah around???

I don't even know what to say about this girl Sarah, good lord! I think if I was her I would have just go hide under a rock somewhere and never show my face again! And as far as Alexis goes, well.. let's just say I completely agree with everything you and Tamara think about her....especially after her latest "Anchor" segment on Fox5!! What a joke!! I think it's time for her to get off the show! She just really disturbs me...she's so evil on the inside it destroys what beauty she's paid for on the outside!! It's always ONLY about her!

Welll enough about all that, please don't change a thing about you and Terry...Love you guys!!

Heather you are a breath of fresh air on the show! You bring an elegance and class that is refreshing and has been missing for some time. I think you and your husband are genuine and caring people. I agree with another post saying you can't win if you do or don't say anything about Alexis. Oh well, what can you do? She makes it almost too easy to make comments. But that is a whole other post! I see so many posts warning you about Tamra. I see a change in her, alot from seperating herself from her past (ie her marriage) but I think you have a very positive influence on her. Keep up what you are doing and who you are..and thank you for being on the show!

It would be very refreshing to see you do volunteer work. Not a charity fundraiser. Just good old fashioned volunteering for those in need. A shelter or food kitchen would be nice. Donating, yourself, a couple hundred or so dollars to either of those or even a community center for kids would be really appreciated. Maybe you already do this, but make it known. It would mean a lot to us that are struggling and you have apparently much excess. You seem to have a good heart.

Heather, you are fabulous. You have a lot of class. Great to see an actual housewife in a great marriage. All the other women on this show have boyfriends while Alexis has her prison guard!!!

Heather, First of all, I love watching you, Terry and your children. You have a gorgeous family and it is obvious how much of a family person you are. You are a great and much needed addition to this show. You have proven that you don't need plastic surgery to make your life complete. You are a breath of fresh air. Thanks so much for keeping it real.

You and Terry seem to have a fun, lighthearted relationship, that's great to see! You seem like a classy person who wouldn't get involved with the silly low-blows that some of these other ladies engage in. I hope that you don't let their opinons influence you however I do think Tamara's dislike for Alexis has rubbed off on you. You called her "dumb", that sounded just like Tamar, and why be nasty, it looks like you may be hiding a side of yourself that is exactly like these other women. It would be refreshing to see you treat Alexis with some respect. She is not a bit#@ like the rest and she just seems to have her plate full at home, Jim can be rude to her and that's sad. If she is jealous of you take it as a compliment and don't make her think that you are just like the rest of them, rude, bit@#y, classless and ungrateful. All of you have seemingly great lives, why be catty and nasty?

When someone is wealthy and they have money to blow, they can blow it however they want. It does not make them selfish to spoil them selves. Who ever said she does't give to charity? Making money and becoming rich usually is so you can enjoy the finer things in life, not to become rich to fork it out rto food banks. Its a privilage and an honor to most wealthy folks to give and I sure would if I could, but its a very nieve way of thinking to think they HAVE to give and CAN't spend on themselves. Heather is my new fav.

Heather, you are the ONLY reason I'm tuning in this season! My husband and I used to live in the OC so we liked watching to see the places the housewives go to, but they started to drive us mad. You have changed that around and now we're watching again! Your wit and humor is exactly what this show needs! You remind me of my girlfriends :) I also love your chats with Terry about the ridiculous things said and done at these get-togethers. You two are always level-headed and classy. No finger pointing, horns on your heads, slobbering drunken debouchary from you! Thank God!!! I'm so tired of watching that cr@p on TV, which is why we stopped watching the Housewives series until now! I also love moments they show of you with your children -- a very real and down to earth side despite having all this wealth. Clearly you have an obscene amount of money, yet you're the most approachable and relatable housewife on this show. We hope you stay on!!!

i just watched the pre-view video where u were being mean to Alexis again. i dont get it...maybe she feels insecure with the group with the way she is being treated and u just keep shutting her down. have a little compassion with her. it really is mean to continue to go after someone's intelligence there is no need to constantly call bullshit on her. its obvious u can dish it but u cant take it. (u were so pissed when Vicki gave u advice about the restaraunt) if the conversation was reversed and Alexis spoke to u as though u were stupid about putting ur jewelry locked up u would have had a cow. just lighten up a little on Alexis, its like everyone is beating up on the runt of the litter. kindness goes along way. im sure she would love to become friends with all of u, if she was given the chance!

You are like shaved truffles to me. I didn't think I'd like them, but discovered that in small doses, they add a necessary touch of class to an otherwise bland dish. We're over loaded with petty, immature and insecure characters and it's tiresome. Plenty of new HW have been introduced to a cast, in the hopes of reviving a boring franchise, but you've been the only one to actually succeed. You ARE the Henry Higgins to their Eliza Doolittle and I would NOT take that bet.

Your nasty nose job recovery remark that you made during your interview was classless. It sounded like a line Tamra fed you and people seem to be tired of her mean jabs. Get a mind of your own....

Heather,

I think you are amazing! You are right on point about everything. Thank you for being so elegant and representing the East Coast in style! I LOVE how when the girls start to get dramatic, you say, "Oh dear!" HAHAHA I think it is so sweet! Everything you say is the truth and it's direct. Thank you for that. Alexis is very jealous and it is very clear. She has a hard time keeping up with your quick wit and that intimidates her. "OH DEAR!" HAHAHAHA

Thanks Heather for being a part of the show!

My guess is that you and Terry will not be signing on for another season because you are too classy for this crowd. Wish Bravo could find more couples like you and Terry. The way these other housewives live life is not the "norm". P.S. Get off of the "nose job" thing with Alexis already. She may not be bright but she really is a nice person. You of all people should be more understanding since Terry is a plastic surgeon.

Heather!! I LUV you and your hubby!! Both of you are so "normal" and have common sense and still a great sense of humor! You are the ONLY reason I now like this show and I watch it just to see your input and to laugh at your hubby's jokes. You were so nice to a crazy person at the bowling get-together-luv that try at diffusion of nonsense. She was too far gone to hear you. Champs?? Yes, please! Pass some to me!! Maybe put a 2 drink- maximum on some of these crazy women next time.... ; )

Good luck in your ventures. xx

I just want to say that you guys were clearly making fun of Alexis' upcoming surgery, especially, your husband. It didnt matter if he knew it was Alexis. The polite thing to do was to apologize after finding out you guys were talking about Alexis. I also dont think that Alexis is "dumb." She is nice, has not done anything to Tamara or to you, knows how to have fun, down to earth, pretty, good mom and wife, and a great friend to Gretchen. To call someone "dumb" and you dont even know that person is not nice but hurtful and judgmental.. And that was not nice for your husband to make fun of Sarah.. It seems like he is the male version of Tamara since she likes to make fun of people...

Heather, I sure understand why you and Tamra hit it off. You are two peas in a pod, you are both mean and liars. You bald faced lied at the bunco party, telling Alexis that was not what your were talking about. Alexis always said she was having both, sinus surgery and a nose job. Did you see what they pulled out of her sinus? When Terry made his snide remark about the sinus being over in the face, odd he never mentioned that the Dr. had to drill up through her nose and across her face to get to it.

Who are you to call anyone crazy? You even look crazy. I can't stand to look at or listen to you. I hope they replace you real soon.

When the RHOC debuted seven seasons ago, it was supposed to be about privileged women, from behind the gates of Coto de Caza. Finally, after seven seasons, Heather comes along. She is wealthy, beautiful, smart, well connected, and the wife of a doctor. So, what do all of you do? You complain that Heather is snotty, arrogant, and she leads with her money. Yes, she does all of that, and we finally get to see a "real" wealthy housewife. Get over yourselves...Heather is the real deal.

heather i watched the camping trip for next week.you are already ragging on alexis.who cares if she does not ware her real ring or not.you are not even a friend to her so it is none of your bussiness really.you just need someone to pick on.you might have more money and this week you said lex was dum.you are now name calling.yea your real smart.i think you are jelous of lex cause she is so nice and confident and pretty.you just want to run her in the ground.you should of stayed home with gretchen and tamra.lex might not always speak the way you think she should but would much rather be her then any of you.you are going to end up being a bully if your not careful.you talk about her when she is not even there.i hope you are not getting obsessed with her.it is kinda weird how you always want to talk about her when she is not even there to defend herself.keep your mean girl comments to your self.bravo print this for heather.

I love you and your husband chatting with each other after each strange encounter between either the housewives or the housewife and friend of housewife aka Sarah. Your guys' comments are hilarous and we need some humor and wit from you to adorn this comical show. Still laughing thinking about Terry's imagining the encounter between Sarah and Alexis if there ever was one. Gosh that Sarah is unblievably ennoying. Gretchen should nt have brought her to your party. Not only is she not invited by the host but she tried to steal some air time. Very pathetic

Can you tell your Dr. husband not to say any negative comments to any girls. He seems to love to jab on some girls. Husbands should stay away from all the crap thats going on with the wives of OC.

Heather, I don't know what the crazy hating people are talking about it's almost as if they are watching a different show. I love you, loved you from the get go. You DO NOT flaunt your money, you know how I know, because you have a normal size wedding ring, not a small tacky ice rink (that you can't afford) like Alexis. I love that you mix every day stuff with classy stuff. I.e running errands with a helicopter! Classic and classy! LIke who does that?! Awesome! Honestly, you could have your own show, but you need the crazies for the drama. I wish it was mostly about you and then maybe a cut to Vicky, or Gretchen, or Sarah, freaking out. My husband is a physician as well, and his wardrobe is atrocous too. Henly t-shirts from wal mart and 20 year old jeans! Uhh! Oh, and try to get them to wear something nice, and it's "your're trying to change me" thank god my husband bought a tux this past year, he really needed one, and he loves it! I thought you should have gone with the three button with the peaked lapel. I thought the single button was too young of a look for Terry, even though, I'm sure it will look awesome! Keep it comming with your level headed common sense! Thanks for the breath of fresh air. Stay away from Alexis! She is uber cra-cra, and coo-coo for co co puffs, and there is no brain in that situation. Thanks, Liza

OMG you are so wonderful I just had to comment (and normally I only comment when I'm really mad, i.e. who the heck is that sara girl that ruined your bowling party and why is she on my tv??!" But you, you are a totally different story. You are sooo wonderful I think I have a crush on you (and im a 26 year old girl!) Your beyond gorgeous, funny, good spirited, intellegent, and I love your husbandn and both your composures! LOL I told you, I have a mega crush on you because you are my favorite reality tv personality I have ever seen! Most reality people I fell sorry for them in a way becuase they're famous but they're clueless, but not you, you I actually envy completely :) with love, viewervirgonyc

Heather what you can do is get as far away as possible from the drama. Mainly to do that get off the show. But if you don't keep your head up and your ears clean. Intuntion is very important in the drama games of reality tv.

You are a breath of fresh air; you are classy,non-confrontational and really make an effort to get along. And, I have to say you are the brightest of the bunch. You really get everything and everyone. I do believe Vicki is very smart as well or her business would not be successful , however, the other women aren't the sharpest tools in the shed. I am liking Tamra better this season; maybe nice Eddie has rubbed off on her.And maybe being in a bad marriage made her less likable. But you have definately raised the bar on the housewives. You conduct yourself beautifully at all times. I think all of the negative comments on here are from jealous people; so unkind. You and Terry have definately added a new level to this show. Thank you

Love you, Heather...don't listen to all the pro-Alexis people...you call 'em as you see 'em. And you see her just right! She is the jealous one. When you were on your TV show, did they make you do your own make-up in the community ladies' room?? Just sayin.

Heather- I just don't think your a good addition to the show, like the last blogger, I am still waiting to see what you bring to the show. Your husband is somewhat entertaining with his goofy comments, but I just can't relate to you. I am sorry to say this, but you irritate and bore me at the same time. I also don't think you fit in with the rest of the group.

dont let Tamara influence u about Alexis. Tamara finds a new person to pick on each season and this year its Alexis' turn with no reason whatsoever! Tamara goes after her because she knows Alexis isnt quick on her feet. Thats called bullying, im sure u wouldnt want any of ur children treated this way, so think about them when Alexis is enduring the wrath of Tamara. Remember Alexis has done nothing to cause this reaction, so try to get to know her, u may like her!

Positive blog. Why are you hating on alexis? You're knew to the show and shouldn't have any underlining dislikes. You are very impressionable that is why you laying on the financial thickness. You did score points with me for a brief during the preview video accept when you did not invite Alexis and jim very childish. Tamera is using as amo for the reunion show watch your back. Stop hating on Alexis and you will come across better on the show.

OMG, I don't understand these bloggers........They gripe at you when you mention Alexis in your blog and they gripe at you when you DON'T mention her in your blog. What do you people want? Heather is a welcome addition to this show. She's very different from all of the other housewives which is exactly what the show needed. She's not mean like Tamra, she's not fickle like Vicki, she's not ditsy like Alexis and she has common sense unlike Gretchen. What is there not to enjoy about her scenes? Her husband is funny and down to earth, great sense of humor, kids are adorable, just all around great scenes. So what if they're very wealthy! He makes an honest living with his career. She's a great wife and mother! Everyone get over your belittling opinions!!!!

Watch out for Tamra and Vicki. They can spin you around. I don't want to see you being dragged into their unfair and unkind mentality. Alexis has annoying speaking habits and her beliefs are funny but she has a good heart. O.K. things did not go well at the beginning because you are the new glamorous girl so there might be some hidden competitiveness somewhere but Alexis is harmless. The dangerous one is Tamra.

I happen to come from privilege myself, so please don't think this is coming from jealousy but I happen to find you quite irrating as you obviously know the price of everything but the value of nothing with your pretenious attitude. Obviously "new money" has gone to your head, pick something that is more dear to you than a mansion, pricey clothes and cars as with alot of your new money friends can tell you it can be gone in a flash.

I'm not jealous of the money the Dubrows have, however I find it tacky how much they (esp. Heather) emphasize their wealth. She talks about $2 million for the restaurant (and if it fails, oh well!) $50k on Terry's wardrobe, etc. The truth is, people who TRULY have money don't speak about it. They just don't. It seems Heather's identity is tied to her bank account and the more zeros she has, the higher her esteem is. She thinks people will respect her for her station in life, but most of us respect people for what they DO, not what they HAVE.
