Forget about the epic reunion for a moment, I have just completed an epic move! As any of you who have moved recently know (especially if you have lots of small kids), it's no fun. Very stressful and so much work. I'm such an organizer and a perfectionist (I'm sure you all find this hard to believe. HaHa.) that I want to have it all done quickly and efficiently. Doesn't always work out that way though. . .
I'm happy to report we are (mostly) settled in our adorable rental home where we shall reside until the new house is completed in about two years. That may seem like a long time, but honestly, I'm going to need at least that amount of time to recover before the next move!
If you want to see our progress on our new home, check out my pictures on Instagram @heatherdubrow!
On to the reunion. . .
I felt differently this year at the reunion. No longer the "new girl" I have now formed real relationships with these women and am invested in them.
I just received your twitter update that filming for this season has started. Thanks for the reminder to unfollow you. Will not be watching the OC this season. Enjoy your new besties or is it beasties you and Tamra both fooled me. No thanks.
OMG Vicki can cry and has had a poor me attitude since season 1. Poor Vicki her love tank is so empty that she picks the next guy who tells her what she wants to hear (Brooks enter stage left). He's not an idiot and has been studying Vicki for some time. He tells her what she wants to hear, how beautiful she is, orders dry martinis with a stuffed blue cheese olive. There are other examples that just doesn't come to mind right now but I agree with Laurie if your kids have ill feelings for him then maybe there is a reason. Speaking of Brooks; Vicki they don't throw money around at a poker game in someone's home unless it's a "poke her"! game LOL! What did Brooks walk away with from Vicki? New teeth, a car and how could we ever forget Vicki giving him a monetary donation to keep him up with his child support He' already been to jail once for the same thing Lord forbid he can not go thru that again.
Now we're losing Gretchen because she did not abide by Vicki's rules. She spoke her mind, pointed out where Vicki was a hypocrite and generally did not get a long with her and "poof" she's gone. Jenna didn't agreed "poof" she's gone. Vicki must have pictures of Andy with animals for her to still be relevant. I think both Gretchen and Jenna has a lot more to contribute than Vicki. The only reason why Vicki is still hanging around after so many years is for the $$ and she would do anything to stay relevant. I don't think I'm going to watch the housewives of OC this season It is all about, Vicki and Tamara who is a fly by night friend; you either get along with her or you're cancelled. Between Vicki and Tamara getting drunk and acting like idiots there really is nothing to watch. I'm still upset about how rude how Vicki Tamara and Lydia was leaving Heather and Gretchen at the restaurant in Mexico. Who the heck thought of that one and why couldn't one of them including Lydia text them as to where they were and to have them drive over with the limo? I'm sue the limo driver knows which club they were at. Vicki is a rude slob... peeing on Tamara's bed and Tamara will do whatever Vicki says. Eddie watch out you're marring Vicki part deux.
Heather is a right fighter,in Dr.Phil description. You glide along with the pack and rip Gretchen . You seem to forget that she was never a threat to your career. But, somehow you made sure she would never have a cameo spot. I guess you had to have something to use to tear her down. Did we not learn anything about Vicki? Tamra? Alexis? Vicki needs to go. She is disgusting. I feel so sorry for her children. Thankfully they are not repeating what they have lived with their mother. Don was just not kinky enough. He was a great father figure you them. Sad to see he is gone. Understand why. Sorry, got off track Heather. You are smart enough to know that this new OC gig could cost you.
I can't imagine you Heather ever bending down to speak to someone that you thought was below your status. I find you very aloof and unapproachable not that I would ever want to talk with you but you could try to be a nicer person. I feel bad for Gretchen as those witches started bashing her before she got in the Limo on her first season. They are some really nice people you hang with-LOL
Heather I have to agree with you. I cannot imagine the RHOOC without Gretchen. She has made me laugh the hardest until I cried. Gave great insight with maturity and does it really matter who she has chosen as her mate?
I'm thinking Vicki is the one who needs to hit the road. She has been on this show way too long and whenever she is featured I change the channel. The only reason why Vicki is still there, I will never understand. She’s cut out friends (Jenna) who use to stop by everyday for morning coffee. She was nasty to Laurie I think she protested too much with what Laurie stated about her. I'm sure on Vicki's side it's the $$$ She'll do anything for a buck, trade a friend, insult those where it is not necessary and throw all of you under the bus and then put it in reverse and do it again. Luckily this season you agreed with her. Wait until have a difference of opinion. I’m hoping that Bravo will want you instead of Vicki. Yes she causes a lot of drama that is only one of the reasons she’s still there. She's vicious. I’ve watched all of the Housewives’ shows and I call them my soap operas. You cannot tell me that when a situation comes up the producer “doesn’t state let's try it again, maybe with a different ending?" If not why is a producer mentioned in the credits? Heather please don't fall into the Housewife’s trap and up in a divorce. Just watching you I can tell that you’re silly, funny hubby loves you more than anything. I beg you please continue to love him. My hubby embarrasses me all the time. My reaction “I’m only related by marriage” Your hubby and children are more important than the money and exposure you’re seeking.
@Oxford I just can't believe that you foolish people actually watch thus s**t on a regular basis and actually believe it. Please gave treatment
Now when Gretchen and Alexis are gone, we won't get to see how you apologize to them for lying about that cancelled show.
J.Mobile I will miss Gretchen - Alexis is gone!!! There was never a phonier person or one who enjoyed playing the victim card more than Alexis. Glad to see and her Icky husband go.
Heather I really want to know how the hell you did not turn around and slap Lydia at the reunion show. What a little smart mouth. You should have asked her if your husband could do something to help her gum to teeth ratio she has a mouth like a horse. I know you keep it classy however she deserved it. IYou handle yourself quite well on the show and you seem to be real. Bravo out with Lydia and Alexis what uptight little phonies those two are. Heather if they do come back you have my total sympathy.
carom Be careful, she doesn't like to be referred as "housewife" she's an "actress", just look at her twitter account she put actress before wife and mom!... hmm.. even vicki who has a real job she put wife, mo, and grand mom first before her business credit... She's sooooooo insecure!
Vicki can sit in her recliner and watch Tamera and Eddie begin to gain momentum for a divorce #4. I don't understand that Gretchen wasn't asked back for next year, she was the only person there that was interesting! I'm sure Vicki had bad mouthed Gretchen to Andy one to many times. Vicki will surely add more plastic to her face for the season to stay relevant. What about her daughter Braine. She is smart, strong, a cancer survivor, a no holds bar, support my man at war woman! She is so relevant right now, it would be a perfect, perfect addition.
Getting rid of Gretchen and keeping Heather! That is terrible news. It shows how important it was to kiss Tamra's behind.
Oh my gosh I think Terry is adorable. If you haven't been married to a MD then you don't know that they can be very silly and funny. They are just guys who've spent too much time leaning and testing. They have a lot to catch up on. Plus he's completely at a loss of how this gossip thing works. He has no experience at it. The good news is they have a great understanding of the female anatomy.
Wow! I guess I should go back and rewatch a few episodes. I have seen nothing to generate such malicious remarks. I do not see your husband as any worse or better than any of the other husbands. I would find him irritating to be around all the time, but probably entertaining on a now and then basis. It is slade that I want to send PMS meds to. I wish you the best on your career. At first I found you to be a little judgemental, but no more or less than any of the others.
rosyposy that's kind of the point rosy. Terry Dubrow is a surgeon -- he has some professional image to uphold. It's one thing for the other husbands -- with questionable jobs and unclear income sources -- to go on a show like this. But when a medical doctor does it, it's just unseemly. Especially when his behavior is as silly and catty as "Dr" Dubrow's has been
My fav moment of the whole reunion was the look on your face when Lydia announced she is a genius.
Look at your necklace at Tamra's wedding. Wow and no one accused you of trying to outdo the bride like when Gretchen wore her diamond ring when going with the girls for Tamra's dress choosing party.
No respectable plastic surgeon puts himself in these situations. He is unprofessional and is embarrassing to the medical profession.
muffeymuffey you are making a very good point. The sight of that man -- a medical doctor -- prancing around and joining in on the silly, vapid gossip and back-biting that these "housewives" engage in is really quite astounding. It's one thing for women like Tamra Barney or whatever her last name is this week, and Gretchen Rossi to make fools of themselves on this show for the sake of some fleeting "fame" and a paycheck. But watching a surgeon do it is cringe worthy indeed.
@muffey I've been saying that exact same thing about Terry ever since the party at his and Heather's home; when Jim had that talk with him about Alexis. Terry also said another time that Alexis is phony. A plastic surgeon calling someone out for being phony? Calling out a woman none the less? I have been thinking of the man as being catty for several years now personally.
Gymratz muffey I cannot imagine that his buffoonery on this show is helping his surgical practice. What woman in her right mind would go to Terry Dubrow for a cosmetic procedure?
Gymratz muffey It is so true that people seem to accuse others of what they are faulty with. I have never anyone on the Housewife shows as phony as these two: him and his supposedly classy wife Heather. Their phoniness is not simple like Alexis, which could be easily uprooted. Theirs are a few notches deeper. They act real but they think they know and are better than the rest. They don't brag outright but they do it in a sly way etc. They are the master phonies,not Alexis.
OMG PEOPLE!! Get a life!! He is still a human being entitled to do whatever he chooses in his "off time". Doctors' are people too, not God's, so keep it real, would ya??!!
I can't see for the life of me that you are really friends or even associate with any of these women you just don't fit in the mix........being on the show helped your acting career God I am a Artist and have a studio near the njhw....I would love a little visit to my studio ...it's all about opportunity ......some get lucky and some don't but it seems all the girls are doing well with their ventures
susanzavagli Well, not really ....she fought hard to remove all competition but it seems that her "acting" abilities were not good enough to stop Malibu Country from being cancelled!
And don't be carried away by her "uppity, manners"; she just use that to mask a huge insecurity. In fact she's worst than Tamra and Vicki combined because she's shrewd and you don't see her come, but viewers are smart!!!
Heather has come a long way as the girl born and raise in Brooklyn. She is not what she appears to be.
You're a housewife who married a rich man, period. Nothing wrong with that. But please stop with this "i have a career" nonsense talk. You feel unaccomplished and that's no good reason for attacking the hard working and work minded Gretchen or Alexis just because she implied that you're no Angelina Jolie. Don't you get it? All the viewers are seeing through you, so please don't try to justify your actions, we know your motivations YOU ARE INSECURE!
GOOGLE Heather, look at her page on Wikipedia, the list of her accomplishments BEFORE she became a RHW is rather long, and more impressive than many actors I've seen. Don't be so quick to judge unless you've done your homework!
jewelofthenorth I don't have to look up her Wikipedia page, Heather reminded us every chance she got that she did some "acting jobs", that was never a steady acting career, like she wants us to believe. She never left her "career" for Terry that B.S. she was just getting less and less offers, simple as that. That's why she is SOOOOOOO sensitive when it comes to getting offers, this is someone who is unaccomplished and takes it out on people she feels threatened by, no need to be a psychologist to figure this out!!!But don't take my word for it...I heard this actress, what's her name.... she used to appear on Chelsea Handler, does anybody remember her? Anyway, she came in one day on WWHL and said that Heather did some acting jobs on occasion, Tamra was also there that day, and she tried to stop her from saying that...
By the way, do you want me to give you the list of "has beens" , "never beens", "wanna bees" and other TV reality "stars" with Wikipedia page?
Truth is - most of us just do not care whether she is an accomplished actress or not...we don't like her attitude or manner....She's not a favorite or why we watch the show.
We think the show would be better without her...
You'll see my response to your rant(s) below. I just forgot to say.. I happen to ALSO, really like Gretchen and I think that Alexis is most probably the most classic beauty of the group. Just sayin.
Your name is really an abbreviation. Heather really stands for: Hypocritical-Egotistical-Accusation-Throwing-Highbrowed-Egomaniac-Recreant. You've just been schooled Miss "educated."
Heather, when you lie down with dogs (Vicki and Tamra) you are going to get fleas. Please don't think of yourself as better than any of the other women on the show because you aren't.
The ONLY time you were "fun" was when you were drunk in the limo. You seriously need to lighten up. Everything is a competition with you. We get it, you want us to believe you're this steady working actress, and no one else could possibly act as well as you. LOL You crack me up!
Lydia and Alexis and hopefully Gretchen have your number. Narcissistic people are good at hiding a lot of their behavior but the viewers see right through it. And as for your husband...seems he will stir up trouble and drama for others just to please you.
Wyn Exactly, she's shewed and manipulative... She was masterful in the turning everyone against Gretchen, just because she felt threatened and insecure.... that's pure and cold evil
I can't believe Bravo invited her back for another season. ((Yawn))....she is boring and just ick to watch.
heather I think is great I love that she is who she is. She doesn't sugar coat anything if you will by trying to make people like her. Classy yes anyone who sticks up for themselves is A ok in my books.
