This is an interesting episode. This is the catalyst for the rest of the season. Having said that. . .
My lunch with Tamra -- I love seeing our friendship blossom at this lunch. We have become friends, and I'm glad she trusted me with important conversations about her relationship and moving in with Eddie. The Bunco party sounded fun!
Alexis, huh. That plastic surgery consult was weird. Why is she so freaked out? Last week she said "I have the knowledge" about surgery. She WORKS for this Dr as a surgery consultant. . . It's just all a little odd. Even the doctor said, "My god girl, you're just having a nose job!"
You were so obviously from Robert Palmer's video. I can't believe anyone didn't know who you were. You looked really great! Just like the girls on the video.
While I was going to give you kudos for your neat dry sense of humor, I am instead now tagging you the new 'mean girl'. While you have probably begged your way onto this show to get yourself some 'real' acting gigs, your comedic timing has been showcased rather well in the past two episodes, even with your Dr. husband there, which confuses me as it obviously bugs you like he should be working??. Also, why all the mean jabs towards Alexis? A 'brainlift'?? Could it be that maybe you are quite a bit jealous that she has a running gig every Friday on Fox -- abeit even if it is only a 'style piece'?? Wouldn't you just die for 3-5 minutes of your face -- all 98% of it being shown to all of Los Angeles in a guaranteed style piece every single Friday which could possibly lead to a part in a sitcom, then to your own sitcom, then to.... you get my point. Leave her alone. She doesn't deserve it. You don't even know her yet. And she doesn't know even half of the 98% of you that is real, if even that is true...afterall, you are married to a plastic surgeon.
Heather, the jury is out on how I feel about you on the show. You try too hard to fit in. Also you come off as if you are too high class for the other ladies on the show, thus you act very ridged. As far as your relationship with Alexis, I don't see what you mean when you say she attacks you, perhaps its been edited out, but as the saying goes, it takes two.
can't stand it when people act superior to others--who do you think you are ? the second-coming?--Funny I don't recall seeing you walk on water. From what I can tell you were once a somewhat actress who got lucky enough to marry a Dr. ( in other words you married money) nothing more nothing less. Quit acting like you're better than every one else. It only shows how tastless and classless you really are. I have no idea why you are even on this show---could it be because the acting career never took off????
I guess I am in the minority again. I am confused as to how you women forget what you say within a minute. You lied to Alex because your husband did make fun of her. Tamra was making fun her by claiming that "someone who claims they are having sinus work done, is really having a nose job, and Alex needs to own it." Your husband made the crack that the sinuses are by the cheeks, so he was imparting a bit of jab that she wasn't fooling anyone or that she was dumb.. Please don't stoop to Tamra and Vicki's level.. I was liking how Tamra and Gretchen were working things out, but you are new and do not know nor understand the history.. Slade has justifiable reasons for having issues with both of them, and that is something that Tamra and Vicki are going to have to "own it"..... Tamra at least seems to be willing to make an effort which is good, but Vicki thinks she is fooling everyone that she is this religious person yet she passes judgment onto others, insults, comments and that isn't very religious now is it...
Sorry, dear, but your comments don't ring true. To act shocked and surprised at what goes on with these women is absurd now that the show is seven seasons in. Bravo didn't twist your arm to be on the show, did they?
You are my new favoriate. I love the pants your husband was wearing at the 80's party. The comment about "maybe she needs a brain lift" was hilarious.
Hi Heather your outfit was on point. I remember Robert Palmer and the Palmer girls. 80's was the best.
Heather, Can you believe Slade Smily? You and Terry looked shocked at the Improv. As were we all. Now you know why people can't stand Slade or Gretchen, those two give all of us the creeps. Him for putting his face in ours since the first season, and her for letting him continue to do it. She knew what he was going to say at the Improv, or she would have invited Vicki and Tamra. Let me tell ya, my man would never speak of any woman that way. But then again, he is a real man. Looks like yours is too. Both you and your husband are a breath of fresh air in a stale show.
The best 80's outfit, I mean come on Shania Twain spoofed this in her "Man I feel like a Woman" video. Still, Heather, I am on the fence about you, only because you are so new, and we all know the first year on the Housewives is hell!! Good luck.
I was BORN in 1985 and even I knew exactly what your costume was! It's a legendary video/ song - and you totally pulled off the look lady!
I remember you from you acting days. So glad that you are on the show. Sometimes things get a little crazy, so good luck with that. Your husband is funny. You both are a breath of fresh air to the OC. Alexis is a hypocrite so watch your back! That woman wouldn't know Jesus or a Christian if the came down from heaven right in front of her. Loved the Robert Palmer outfit and your husband did look just like his brother...oh..the good ole' days...lol!
You are awesome! You got it so right with Alexis! Dont listen to these people! I love reading your blogs. Tamra will be a good friend!! You didn't belittle Alexis!! She does it all on her own!! Its just your sense of humor. You weren't bashing her. YOU WERE MAKING FUN OF THE SITUATION.. I love you!!! please bravo! Post this!!!
I'm happy you joined the cast. I do think you'll have your hands full with this bunch of ladies, but I'm sure you'll do fine. Good Luck to you!
I loved your outfit. I am going to copy it for an 80's party I am going to. I had to laugh with Alexis. Sometimes I have small panic attacks over wierd stuff. It started happening just this past year. Hormones I think. Anyway I feel you are great assest to the show. Hope you are having fun.
Love you! You're smart, and you say it like it is. I predict Tamra and Gretchen will be your friends.
Heather, I love you on this show. I wish Peggy was also on because you two, I feel like I can relate to you guys. I think you are a perfect addition to the show and like Peggy, you both are above the drama and very classy.
I sometimes enjoy your personality but then other times you seem a little up tight. I think if you would just loosen up a little and have fun instead of making disapproving faces at the other girls you might actually be an okay person. Your husband on the other hand is extremely likeable and seems very funny and down to earth. A piece of advice laugh at your husbands jokes he is funny and the fact that you have someone like that in your life should be celebrated. My husband makes me laugh several times a day and it only makes us appreciate eachother more. I loved the Robert Palmer costume! I reconized it right away and thought it looked great. I like the fact too that you appreciate your assistant enough and respect her enough to give her the credit for the costume. I think that says alot about who you are...hopefully. I agree with some of the other post on here when they warn you about Tamara. I like Tamara and her personality but I don't believe she is a loyal person who would do anything for a friend. I think you need to just go into the friendship knowing you may value the friendship more than she does. I don't feel like Alexis is a very geniune person. I feel like she doesn't know who she wants to be. And I don't think she likes herself nearly as much as she tries to convince everyone she does. I think she is harmless though unlike Tamara. My favorite by far is Gretchen. I believe she is more of a regular person than any of the other girls. Good luck with these girls! If you want to appeal to the large majority of the people watching RELAX!
Hi Heather, I knew what your costume was the minute you entered the room. You looked amazing! I must have watched that video a thousand times when it came out. MTV was new and they would show that video over and over. It was a huge hit and you really had the look of the woman in the video. I remember her legs seemed to get longer and longer during the video. You and your husband are a refreshing addition to the RHOC. Having been a Doctors wife myself for 25 years I can really appreciate your calm and refined demeanor. You have to be married to a Doctor to understand that it comes with the territory. Your husband has a really funny sense of humor! The two of you seem very sweet and I hope that neither of you change from being on the show. I have seen so many housewives on all of the shows act crazy after the first year. I don't believe that you will have that problem though. Good luck to you both.
Heather, I was ready to quit watching until you showed up. These chickies have all but pecked each other to death season after season over all kinds of nonsense...often fueled by too much alcohol( I mean you especially, Tamra Trainwreck Trailer Trash). I'm not sure how you'll get on with these women, as they are quite silly and useless as friends. Cases-in-point: Alexis Barbie afraid of plastic surgery- as if she has never had any;Gretchen Barbie seems the brightest of the bunch, but has a loser boyfriend who stirs the pot at every turn; Vickie the loudmouth self-righteous bully is distracted with her daughter's health scare or she'd be on you like white on rice---she's very jealous of prettier women, in my view.I am enjoying you so far. I have just recently retired from nursing, and I've seen ALL kinds of people and all kinds of behaviour--and I say this to you: "normal" is about the most rare thing in this world
Heather... I have been an orignal oc housewife fan from the very first episode. I've seen my share of drama on the show. I must say l really like you. don't listen to the haters. You are the real deal. These ladies can learn a thing or two from you. Keep being you. You rock.
Lindsay, you couldnt've said it better. Heather thinks she so superior to everyone I don't hate her though... Gretchen and Alexis I like the most.
Heather, you are a breath of much needed fresh air! I find you to be a lovely, educated woman. Some of your cast members should be taking notes (hint, hint, Alexis).
heather, so i have to apologize because my first impression of you from the first episode was not very good. I left a comment that probably wasnt the nicest. As i see more of this season I like you more and more... i feel like you are more adult than the other ladies and less into drama.... i do think you are a little hard on alexis hopefully that will change. i think alexis is just trying to figure out who she is now as a wife and mother and reality star. shes had a rough year and going through all that and standing by your husband isnt the easiest thing but she has managed to do it.. time to finish watching this weeks episode :)
Totally a fan!! Love you as an addition to the cast. I was getting close to stop watching. Now Andy needs to get rid of Alexis and Slade! They add no value to the show. They are so boring and irritating at the same time. The only ask I have is for you to be nicer to your husband. It is a little uncomfortable to watch. Sorry.
I thought your 80's outfit was fabulous and HOW could the other women act as though they didn't 'get it?' As if any of them were just 'born' in the 1980's and Robert Palmer was before their time? Duh. I think not.
Class act, Heather!
Heather, you were great as usual. Of course you have to explain your outfit -Gretchen says she is 33 or something like that , her age hasnt changed since the show began !!! But I actually feel sorry for her this year , Karma is coming back to get her for what she did to Jeff in the form of SladeI dont know that anyone deserves him, except Alexis- now that would be a pair,lol. The only ones that can think are Vicki and Tamra( if she stops drinking before she kills off all of her brain cells and blows a good thing with her man. Next to your hubby Tamras man is the best guy on the show) And dont listen to these comments about you 'belittling" Alexis- she dosent have much in the intellegence department to work with , so anything you say would make her look stupid including 'Alexis what does 2plus2 equal? " But ask her about make up Im sure she could go on for hours,lol. In my openion Vicki is the one to stick with , I could see you two becoming the real show friends you are both smart, tell is like it is and have a sharp wit. Just keep being yourself and it will drive Alexis crazy, and make sure you tell Gretchen she is 'cute' since that drives her crazy too. Im glad you are on the show.....
Come on people! I'm younger than all of the housewives and I knew exactly what Heather's costume was...Addicted to Llove...did no one watch t.v.or listen to the radio in the 80's ever??? I thought you looked amazing Heather and very unique! Don't get me wrong I love all the girls but hopefully you can bring the element of class to this group. I can't believe Terry's brother was the singer from Quiet Riot...loved that band and I thought he looked familiar, looks a lot like his brother...very cool!
Im only 25 and I knew exactly who you were immediately at the party!! You looks awesome! I still stand firm that you belong on the RHOBH... You are heads and shoulders above the other ladies.
I think that your "Robert Palmer" girl was ingenious. How can they be truely 80's w/o RP. Where were they??? Under the perverbial rock. I really like what you've added to the show.
I have watched this show since day one, and I absolutely have the most respect for you from the beginning. I so appreciate that you are successful in business, in family and in self. It's really refreshing to see a woman who works AND takes care of her children as so many of us "non-OC" women do. I love your no bs personality and the CLASS that seems to come so naturally to you and be so totally lost on some of the other women. I think you were the perfect hostess at the painting party, and that other women behaving badly is not a reflection on your appropriate behavior. Kudos for not sinking to their level and maintaining your class and composure in tact. Also, the "Simply Irresistible" costume was AMAZING!!!
Heather, Leave Alexis alone, you are not superior to anyone, although you like to pretend that you are, it's sad! Sticking with Tamara will get you nothing but grief!
Post this comment Bravo!
YOU looked the best out of all of them at the 80s party. I dont beleive they didnt remember the Simply Irrisitable video.(RIP Robert Palmer) You were SPOT ON! Please STAY classy as you are and dont sink to the new lows these Orange county "ladies" seem to do every year.
I am really surprised so many of you are attacking Heather for her feelings on Alexis. Alexis is an airhead and as much as we all would like to give her passes for he stupid comments, it eventually gets tired real soon and work one nerves. So Heather rolling her eyes or getting annoyed real quickly is understandable. I would do the same thing. Alexis is big drama queen - point, blank, period!!!!
still don't like you one bit.............BTW you saying you are an actress is about like Alexis saying she is a news anchor. Pot meet kettle.
Heather, you have more intellect in your little finger than this entire group of women combined, on their best day! You are polished, smart and gorgeous. Your "Robert Palmer girl" look was brilliant ~ you truly pulled it off beautifully. Of course this group didn't understand it. Not a big surprise there. Your husband is adorable and your children are so sweet. I wish you the best of luck - but you don't need that from me, you're already blessed in that department.
Hey Heather! Loved your costume! it was PERFECT! i have really enjoyed watching you on the show. Your husband is adorable and i am very sorry to hear about the passing of his brother. i laughed so hard when i saw him come into the room, he's a RIOT! LOL! My only advice would be to lighten up on Alexis, everyone knows she is not the sharpest tool but i do believe she has a good heart ( whish is more valuable in a persons character). You don't want to come across as a bully. But other than that you are really growing on me and i love how you spoke up for Gretchen when that guy was putting his nose where it doesnt belong! Honestly, they couldnt have found a better addition to the show! Welcome!
Heather Classy! Are you kidding me. You are a snob not to mention you treat your husband like crap. Get ready by next season you will be on Tamras hit list. Alexix does not derserve your animosity. Tamra planted negativity about her in your head from the beginning. And here I thought maybe you had your own mind. I guess not. You just like to bully your man
Alexis was scared for a good reason, the pain from having your nose done is excruciating!!! It's different for everybody depending on their bone size and issue, but Alexis's bump is big enough that they are going to remove a lot of bone and that is almost as painful as childbirth! If she's worked around plastic surgery offices then it would make sense she's extra scared because she has seen the people in pain. Being friends with Tamra is like being friends with a rock, that is how much you'll get from it, she could care less about anybody but her.
Didn't care for you too much at first because you were edited to be very patronizing and hubristic. For some reason you've won me over. You ROCKED the Robert Palmer look! Speaking up to tell the truth about Gretchen's act when the buzzards were circling her at the Bunko party was endearing. Ease up on Alexis she's much too easy of a target. I'd like to see you direct your laser wit at the group bully Vicki. That would be worth watching.
Stop being a Tamara wanna be. Your lack of class and insecurity is so transparent when you constantly tear down anything that Alexis says. I was hoping you'd be a breath of fresh but you keep proving your not!
