Heather Dubrow

Heather doesn't think anything is wrong with store-bought deserts, she just has a few problems with her caterer.

on Apr 9, 20130

Sorry this blog is late. I actually watched the show live last night with all of you! (My screener was mysteriously AWOL.) Anyway...

The algorithm of shooting a reality show is 30 hours of filming for 20 minutes of footage that ends up onscreen . Isn't that crazy?? So imagine how many times I had to hear the words "onion rings" in thirty hours! Ugh! Truthfully, I'm not sure he even wanted the darn things, he just thought it was funny. Then to enlist Vicki??? Not necessary.

I love my husband, but as I said last week, he likes to push my buttons.
The truth is, I was extremely annoyed with my caterer. (Who I've been working with for years and I do adore...) Brian specifically told Terry that he was serving steak as well (at my request in case anyone didn't care for lobsters, or if there was any shellfish allergy I wasn't aware of). So I can understand why Terry inquired about the steak. . .My ennui came from him asking over and over and over (which wasn't shown).

Also, the dessert table: Just for the record, I LOVE Costco. We shop there often and I think their products are excellent.
Can you imagine though, hiring a caterer and requesting a dessert bar -- only to find out, it was all store bought? I assumed he had made all of the desserts, which is why I made that comment.

Out of all the women, I like you the best this season.  I think you have let down the wall a little this year. I find you very commanding, you know what you want and you aren’t afraid to voice your opinion, I like that in a women.  You are a take charge kind of person and your husband being the busy man that he is; I am sure he appreciates you for all the hard work you do at home to make sure home life run smoothly.

I don't know why you are against Alexis but I have an Idea, I think you think that they (meaning: Alexis and her husband are not uppity like you and your husband) Well, I admire Alexis and her Husband they are 2 beautiful good looking people and you are so jealous of their happiness and their family and faith maybe? Get a grip Heather stop hating on people that you said yourself that you know nothing about! and remember the company you keep! And the company you keep is Tamra and Gretchen then I suggest you get better friends! You are pathetic acting like a bully! Yes you are a bully and most people think that you are and if you missed WWHL when your buddy Tamra was on with Dr. V, the doctor herself said Tamra and you and Gretchen ARE BULLIES!! Enough said!

Heather I really liked when you joined the show but now that you are hanging out with Tamara and Gretchen your personality is turning very ugly. It is very disappointing and hope you watch the season back and see how nasty the three of you have been to each other. Sad.

I don't know if you are aware that you come off so affected. You can come down to earth and mingle with the peons.. You are no better. It is so hard to listen to you. You also speak o your husband like he's your child. Give him some.respect since he doesn't demand it from you. The gall of you to demand that you be on the cover or it won't be worth your time. Just don't do it. Such a snob. Very sad people forget who they are.

Oh my goodness! Would everyone please get over the stinking onion rings? For those who do not cater parties, deep fried foods do not time well with certain foods.

heather you try to be so proper and pure but really you are selfish, inconsiderate, and stuck up.  you have no idea what your life really could be without all that money and love from your husband, better wake up and cool your self off, money goes as fast as it comes, grow up and act like a person

Heather...seriously dude, give your husband some freaking onion rings for crying out loud. What the heck is the big deal? You acted (or over-acted) like a spoiled snot. That man works his buns off so you can be all rich and snobby. Give him some onion rings, or  believe you me, some little young gold digger will.

Heather,  lighten up on your husband!...your got a great husband whose giving you the life of Riley,  I don't think you have clue on what other woman go through with abusive irresponsible husbands or no husbands at all, cause they've left  em high and dry, as a volunteer at the food bank I've met them, as they are coming to us for some can goods to feed their kids....You are really coming across  as a spoil bitchy & controlling ungrateful ingrate.

PS - As someone for whom manners/ protocol is so important, just want to be sure you're award that husband/head of household always is seated at the head of the table as a show of respect, with his wife at the other end or adjacent to him?  You may not have intended to wear the pants in the family at your party, but seating yourself in that position and putting him in the "also rans" somewhere down the table - not even at the other end of the table -  clearly took the pants away from him and made yourself the "man" of the family at that party.

Heather, you are one talented girl - the house you designed is eloquent - but word to the wise from a woman with several years on you. 

 

In a calm moment, look carefully at the attitude/ tone that you have when you speak with Terry if you really want this relationship to last.    No man will take being controlled or condescended to by his lover, wife, partner under any  normal circumstances - but especially not when it plays out in front of a million viewers and his customers.    (Your posts suggest that the show's editing is responsible- possible - but your blogs evidence the same disapproving/controlling tone that comes through on the show.  The show isn't editing your blogs, right?)   

 

Not many men will be the subject of those emasculating jabs and stay in the relationship over the long term. You will be lucky if the only reactions he has to being told he contributes nothing are comebacks about "onion rings" or steak.

 

Just a thought...

Heather...I really like you and think you are a great addition to the show, however, Your comments about real jewelry versus fake (why wear it if it's fake, i.e; Alexis) is just crazy. I never look at a piece of jewelry that I like and base my opinion like or dislike whether it is real or fake. If it's pretty, and makes me feel good to wear it, then I'll buy it and enjoy wearing it! At the end of the day, most women wear makeup (fake) , color our hair (fake), get our nails done (fake), bleach our teeth (fake) and Botox or any other cosmetic procedure that many consider fake as well. It's not about pretending to be something I'm not, either. I get as many comments about my so called fake jewelry, as I do my real jewelry. (and I have plenty of both!) At the end of the day, I buy what makes me feel good. period. Your home is beautiful and I love your sense of style!

The majority of the OC fans seem to think that you take yourself too seriously and your husband are a nice guy with a great sense of humor. I agree on both points. Furthermore, inspite of your good sense, you come across too judgemental, too harsh. Your husband seem better matched with Gretchen or Alexis. Gretchen because of her sense of humor, Alexis because she seems kind and loving inspite of her phony talks.

Heather - I wish I had a husband like Terry.  He is fun and laid back.  You got a keeper.

Heather: You make your husband look like a cuckold. Or maybe he is, but if you REALLY think that you're worthy of treating another human being like your property to pinch and control their thoughts and speech, then you're in the wrong country, wrong gender and wrong century.

 

And I used to like the air you brought to the show.  Now I find you extremely sophomoric.

So...it's Ok not to discuss someone's plastic surgery but Ok to mention to someone you just met that their 'friend' wears a fake ring?!?!?  You are such a hypocrite!

Heather, you are the nastiest, meanest, ugliest housewife ever. As long as you are on this show, I will not be watching. I know a lot of people feel the way I do!

Heather, I really like you, however, the way you talk and roll your eyes to your husband is a little demeaning; he seems to be a very nice, good man and you are very impatient with him.

Heather I just think you are a very rude (in a nice way to all the  lads. Your come across as nice but its all just a act. I believe you love your husband along with all the finer thing in life. But you cant be that anneal about everything, you go why overboard with it.  I don't care to watch you on the show anymore. I think your just wonting to be a actor and you feel this is your time to shine. Well you have tarnished instead. For you to invite all the ladies but Alexis just goes to show your not a very good friend. I hope you do grow up and stop treating your husband as a child, children grow up and leave home.

I know this is random but I just realized your daughter's name is Katerina, just like mine. Haven't known another Katerina, and it irritates me that they pronounce it as "Katrina" (cat-ri-na) I hate having to respond to the incorrect name all the time.

With all the plastic surgery going on in the OC why doesn't the girls use Terry I'd love to see his work. All we really have seen of his work was Tamara's tattoo removal

I love you on the show Heather. So what your mrs. Fancy pants. People are just jealous of what you got. I love your house a you have such precious family!!

Honestly, Heather and Alexis are my favorites! I dont agree with those of you saying Heather and Terry are the OC Maloof's. NEGATIVE! Adrianne and Paul just looked miserable together. I think Terry defintely keeps Heather young and down to earth. Nothing wrong with that. Just hope Tamra and Gretchen's mean girl attitudes dont influence you!

If you only want good energy in your house, and at your parties, then why invite Tamara?! Because she is so full of positive energy?!?!  Just curious?!

your caterer sucks, he did tell terry that there would be steak. he did say he would make desert,  he never mentioned costco.  granted there is nothing wrong with costco but if you paid for home made deserts you should have gotten them or he should have said he didn't have time to make them and here's some costco stuff.  i would dump him and find a new one to cater your parties or demand a refund. 

onion rings at a calmbake?? seriously i have never seen that one so i do agree with you on that. 

to the rest of you:

don't start comparing the dubrows to the maloof'- nassif. their problems go farther back than 3 seasons and i think some of their problems were created by their chef. 

all married couples push each others buttons. it's normal and terry does have a good sense of humor about it. at some point all that button pushing can get annoying. 

a lot of people who have commented on here are the same ones who loved heather last season. don't let a couple episodes and another show influence you to jump on the hate train.

You looked like a little toy in that huge chair, and spousal abuse is NEVER okay.  I would have thought your ego would have filled that chair, LOL.  I hope you stay out of the "mean girl" business....you have potential if you come back to earth and realize that life is not about money, it is about relationships.

 @Privateviewer

 I couldn't agree with you more.  She had a throne at the table for herself which speaks volumns to how highly she thinks of herself.  And to sit him in the middle speaks to how she really feels about him.  I feel so sorry for that poor sap.  She has an overinflated sense of self and she needs to get over it!  He is paying the bills, not her.  There are plenty of younger, nicer women out there that would love to take her seat at the throne.  Better check yourself Heather!!

 @Privateviewer You're trying to be as pretentious as Heather.  Eloquent house?  Eloquent is a word used to describe fluent speech.  It has nothing to do with describing a house.  Did you mean elegant?

 @piperbeau She is also so vulgar.  If she talked like that at my party I would never invite her back.  Treat people better, and get off your thrown.

 @tigerlilly43 I would give the guy one more shot as caterer. She's stuck with him for a long time for a reason. Everybody has off days. I do agree he should refund at least the dessert cost to her. She needs to make sure she signs a contract next time stating exactly what will be served and then she can get a full refund if it's another blunder.

 @tigerlilly43 You've never heard of onion rings at a clam bake?

 

You need to get out more and stop being so agreeable. Just because Heather says something, doesn't make it so.

@tigerlilly43 I think the only comparison between Maloofs and Dubrows is that Heather takes herself way to seriously just like Adrianne and Terry and Paul both have a fun sense of humor. I like that about the men.

@Team_Brandi @tigerlilly43 I agree with the onion rings....they are a clambake staple....living on the east coast, but maybe it is different on the west coast....the reason behind the fried onion rings, is the fact that most seafood dominated parties usually will have hush puppies...a southern staple with fish here in the southeast....I can't tell you how many times I have heard hostess of a seafood fest say "i figured i would have onion rings, since I had to fry the hush puppies in the deep fryer" .... Now, here is the important part...if a caterer has not perfected the onion ring, don't bother...they will either come out too greasy or too doughy...backyard cooks have a knack with these things and so do most seafood restaurants here on the coast...why?? Because they do hush puppies....i am not a huge fan of onion rings, but had it been my party...i would have asked the caterer if he could do personal blooming onions, steakhouse style...and sampled them..if too greasy...forget it...all that grease is artery clogging.....but maybe Terry is from the east coast and Heather from the west...maybe it was just a territory thing...
