Heather in TVLand

Heather discusses her role on 'Hot in Cleveland' and why she wishes Gretchen had been there for more of it.

Lights, camera, action!

I'm so happy to share this episode with everyone. I hope you enjoyed a little behind the scenes of Hollywood and what it's like to be on a set. If you missed my guest role on Hot in Cleveland when it aired in January and want to see it in its entirety go to my website heatherdubrow.com. You can also find my résumé there if you are wondering what shows I was on before having my kids! Check out my Instagram (@heatherdubrow) for some behind-the-scenes pictures from show night!

OK, on to the show. . .It's funny to watch Terry and me getting the kids ready in the morning. The way you saw them wake up pretty much sums up their personalities! Nicky is up and ready before everyone (rule follower) , Max will stay in bed until you drag her out (very relaxed) , Katarina is a smiley teddy bear (Mommy's girl) and Collette just rolls with it!

I was SO happy that Terry manipulated his surgery schedule so he could help me in the morning with our brood. This is exactly the kind of support I was looking for and it made my week on Hot in Cleveland so much less stressful!

I had a mix of emotions when I arrived at the table read. I was a little nervous, anxious, and also very excited to be back in the world of scripted TV. Once the table read got under way I was very relaxed and had a fantastic time. The whole week was a dream. Working with the incredibly talented cast of Hot in Cleveland was amazing and they were all so warm and welcoming.

Show night! I was really looking forward to having some of my special friends come and support me on this night! A few of them had never been to a studio taping before, and none of them had ever seen me "live" and in action. I realize that everyone has busy lives and some have young children, so it's extra special to see how excited everyone was to attend!

As you could see, Gretchen and Slade were very late. I didn't notice until about an hour after the show started. I was pretty sad to hear they were completely unapologetic and there was no excuse why they were late either to Terry when they arrived or to myself later. All the girls (as well as Terry) told me later that Gretchen and Slade were up from their seats several times during the evening and missed a number of my scenes.

I just found it so disappointing especially when I found out later that the calls were about a gift Gretchen was helping me with for Tamra. There was no emergency about it that needed to be taken care of at 7 pm on a Friday night.

I have always been a supporter of Gretchen and Slade's and their many career paths. Last year, I left my children for three days to see Gretchen perform in Las Vegas. I was happy to be there and I can promise you my phone was shut in my purse. I deserved the same support and friendship. I decided this was not the time to discuss this issue with Gretchen. I was on a high after the taping of the show ended and didn't want to spend my evening being annoyed.

Celebratory Dinner! Seriously so much fun! Everyone was in a great mood and laughed a lot! Especially after Tamra's gift of disguises and Lydia's fun party poppers!

Terry's toast was so sweet and meant so much to me. He really came through with everything he promised and allowed me to have my moment. It's all I asked for, and he delivered big time. Hitting the "pause" button on our recent issues was definitely the right idea. We had a great evening and enjoyed each other and our friends immensely!

I'd like to say a special thank you to some VERY special friends of mine. Joining us for the show and at dinner after were Lisa and David Heil and Nancy and Mike Bello. They are the best of the best and I'm so proud to have them in my life.

A big thank you to Betty White, Wendy Malick, Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves, Suzanne Martin, the producers, crew, and everyone at TVLand for the amazing experience.

OK, I know this is starting to sound like an awards acceptance speech, so forgive me -- but a final shout out to Bravo and the amazing RHOC crew for their hard work coordinating a very complicated shoot.

I was really touched by all of the feedback from last week's show. Thank you all so much for caring about Terry and me and appreciating that we are showing everything real in our live. . .the fun, happy moments and also the less pretty, more complicated moments.

Until next week. . .

Shannon Settles the Score

If Andy's asking "What's the score, Shannon Beador?" Shannon thinks she's definitely won.

This is Blog #20, my last Blog for the season! The past year was been a wild ride for both me and for my family. I have come to many realizations about myself, made lifelong friends, experienced some tough moments, and embarked on a path to a more peaceful self. So to use Andy’s phrase, “What's the score, Shannon Beador?” I would say without a doubt that I have definitely won.

I am happy that the viewers got a little glimpse into my sometimes unconventional ways! For me, it's all about good energy. I love that Vicki’s business has clearly benefited from trying feng shui with Elaine Wright. If you can't get hurt, there is no reason to try anything holistic. If you actually benefit, why wouldn't anyone want to go the natural way? If my children tend to feel better after seeing Dr. Moon and not have to take antibiotics, then I am a happy mom. It's all about creating a healthy balance!

I am an open book and am often criticized for it, but I am who I am. I don't know many couples married for 13 years that have a perfect relationship. Everyone has ups and downs, and although it may be difficult and require effort, it is possible to move through it and make things better. I have said it many times in the season that divorce is not an option. I will always fight for my marriage and my family. It truly touches my heart that so many fans have been and continue to root for David and I. I am so appreciative and grateful for all of your positive comments! Thank you!

Do Tamra and Heather truly want to move forward and potentially develop a friendship with me? Only time will tell. But for now, I have amazing friends surrounding me, including Vicki Gunvalson and Lizzie Rovsek. And most importantly, I have been blessed with the most incredible family anyone could ask for. That is where all of my energy is focused.

I will never forget this entire year, both the good and the bad, because each moment took me on the journey to where I am today. And today, I am in a phenomenal and happy place. Thank you for taking this journey with me!
