Heather Dubrow

Heather is appalled by Lauri's behavior and Gretchen's big defensive reaction to the 'Malibu Country' drama.

on Jul 11, 20130

Oh Canada! Lydia's uncle Greg was so cute and such a good sport! I was glad I got to meet him.

I have to say as sorry as I was about leaving the trip early, I was very glad to miss the drama on the mountain. I am really just so disgusted about the way Lauri has chosen to come back to this group. My understanding is she was not this way before.
I did love how Alexis, Lydia , and Tamra were making snow angels while the drama ensued. Lauri was trying to make trouble for trouble's sake.

The drama continues in the snow next week and you will see how the Dubrow family is doing back at home. . .So stay tuned!

Who cares about Malibu Country?  And who cares if Gretchen lied or not? (its a silly lie, but still, who cares?) And who made Heather the authority on what Gretchen was offered or not offered?  I she Gretchen,s manager? There probably was some discussion with Gretchen but it didn't pan out.  That happens a lot in the entertainment industry.

i wonder why alexis' and gretchen's parts got written off the show... could it be that it is because they both turned it down?!

Lauri has really disappointed me.  I always liked her.  But to come on the show and talk about Vicki that way was unacceptable.  She has no right to go around and tell people things like that.  Whether it is true or not you just don't tell things like that.  She should go to Vicki in private and talk with her.  It is no ones business.  I have lost a lot of respect for Lauri.....She should keep her mouth shut.......

I have always liked Lauri and the way she went about telling Vicki's truths may not have been her idea. I belive she was brought back specifically to do it that way. Lauri was always the low key, sweet housewive out of all the original women. The way this went down is not Lauri's style. I still like her, was glad to see her, and hope she returns. I would like her and Gretchen to become friends. Now Miss heather (small h), you should not have any comments about Lauri and anything she had to say. She was there before you, and was popular. So stay in your $16 million dollar house and keep your mouth closed about things you know nothing about.  Have you forgotten that you are the new person on the block? I am sure you have not gone back all the years of this show and saw all the things Vicki and Tamra did to the other women on the show. You should recognize the boat you are getting on before it sinks. You are really getting on my nerves with that hollier than though attitude you put on. This show should be renamed Real B's of Organge County(you all know the "b") or Real Backstabbers of Orange County. Of all the housewife shows this one is the worse in terms of turning on people who thought you were their friends.

Hi everybody ive always liked lauri I thought she was one of the sweet ones and missed her when she left, but the way she came back even if what she said about Vickie had an inch of truth, she came back with the worst intrance just talking bad about Vickie cause she mads at her , she should have took her aside and talked to Vickie even though Vickie didn't, and shared her information about lauris husband to gina lauri should have been the bigger person, anyways don't care for lauri right now

So here's my take on Lauri- I think she tells the truth but is such a way that it can be misconstrued. For example, she said Vicki and two others were in bed together in a hotel room. She implied something was happening; however, what if they were fully clothed with shoes, on top of the covers, watching a movie or working on laptops? Nothing inappropriate there. Just like Shady Brooks said he wasn't dating anyone exclusively. That doesn't mean he wasn't going on dates! Vicki also asked about the $100 bills and he said he was a big tipper. Same thing. It's how you tell it. To make it seem like more or less.

Since you knew Gretchen was contacted by Malibu Country, why didn't you say that at the dinner? You made it sound like she totally fabricated this unaware that you would know. It was shady. I think perhaps you were still harboring annoyance at her regarding the bikini design for Tamra's bachelorette party. Not only that, but you have a NEED to make sure everyone knows that YOU'RE the actress

I am really happy for you Heather, You seem to have found joy in both being a SAHM, but also doing your craft part time, I think that's great, Both acting and motherhood are tough things to juggle, but I think if it makes you happy , I think it great, B4 you know it your kids are going to be grown, so planting the seeds and taking the occasional role is wonderful, And having Terry spend quality time with his children is also good, Just as long as the acting does not consume your life, or take away from you being a mom, So far it seems to be working out very well for you,,All my best,

You looked so jealous when Gretchen and Alexis said that got called for the show.  I am not a fan of either of them but it seems you want only YOU to be an actress, I think if they were given a part on the show you would have come up with some excuse like you got it for them or you would say Oh it is only a small part.  Get over yourself, you may be the actress of the group but others can get called for parts also.

I think it was totally unnecessary and tacky of you to address whether Gretchen got an offer of a role on Malibu Country or not with the other women. It really was none of your business, first of all.  Your timing for tattling was bad, at the very least. You and Lydia seem to enjoy stirring the pot, even though you claim to hate all the drama. The competitiveness between all 6 of you is so over the top, it's ridiculous!

Im so happy you and Alexis are getting along and that you weren't afraid to be honest with Gretchen about her lying.

Loved you on Hot in Cleveland. Good luck on the new show. I crack up when Gretchen and Alexis claim producers are after them to be on shows!!! Now they can act??!!!

Heather I Love You, Best addition to the show unlike Lydia, But girl you are not the only actress out there, Trying to make everyone believe Gretchen Lied is rude and wrong

No longer a fan. Do you really think you have some special acting skills or perhaps that the other housewives' agents are receiving calls for them to appear on tv shows to boost ratings. Wake up, girl.

Oh Heather, I beg to disagree! I am so disappointed in you. It is clear that everyone on this show either lies or tells half truths. I thought that you were going to be different, but not so! You said at the dinner that Gretchen flat out lied ~ leading to Vickie's oh so excited "she's a liar face?" ~ and on the bus you admitted that there was a small part that "went away". Please keep one character, and I am now accepting that you are all characters, real and honest. It is obviously none of the others, with Lydia being one of the worst for half truths, are going to assume that role. Please keep it honest, Heather.

You're my fav OC wife.  I admire that you don't spread the rumors and you act like a lady.  You've got a great husband, nice looking and funny.  I think he was cracking all those jokes because he was feeling a little anxious about you going onto the set, feeling a bit of displacement.  Anyway, he's a keeper!  You have a sweet little family.  :-)  V

I call BS again.  You claim  you said nothing during the lunch that you would not have said to Gretchen directly... really?  Assuming it wasn't edited out, we didn't see you saying to Gretchen during the bus ride in Canada "either you were really confused or you were lying".

Heather, I like you, I think you have class, style and sense of humor. However, I think you were the one trying to stir things up on the bus. You acted snooty, condescending and rather rude about the Malibu Country show. If you knew they were contacted for availability then all you had to say was I have to go to the studio to shoot Malibu Country, you didn't have to rub it in their faces that you were chosen and they weren't (yes we know it was a different role). And maybe Gretchen misunderstood what they were asking when they phoned or her publicist informed her incorrectly, so I think you could have gave her the benefit of the doubt instead of calling her out and making her and Alexis feel beneath you. Very unclassy for such a classy lady!

I'm  happy to see that Laurie is back.  She is an original OC housewife and has her fans.  She is bringing drama?  Of course, and that's what this show thrives on, otherwise what would be the point to viewing?  To watch the going-ons of wealthy, fairly attractive women?

 

Vicki and her "friends" may side with her against Laurie, but let's be honest:  Vicki uses the show to talk "trash" about a lot of people including her first husband, her second x-husband, Don and Slade Smiley and of course, Gretchen.  The x's don't have a venue to voice their experiences, do they?

 

So if Vicki can bring up people's pasts, then she should be fair game as well.  Laurie, bring it on!

I think it was funny that you called Gretchen out on her lie about the show that they wanted her to be on (as she says!), and she still lied about it!!!  Gretchen told everyone she could about the rumors that Laurie told her about Vicky, and then even embellished the storie.  You have class- Gretchen could learn a thing or two from you.

Heather.. for the life of me.. you are great!.. and I also get why you went.  I love your attitude.. even when you were mad/up-set at Terry.  You bring a breath of fresh air to the show.. You are always polite but you stand your ground.  The other silly comments are from haters..  and the only insecure people .. are the one's talking about insecurity..  KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.  You are a beautiful woman, with beautiful kids and a handsome husband..

Ya know Heather, for the life of me I couldn't figure out why you would do all that traveling only to turn around and come back....You actually saying it is for Lydia, C'mon who are you kidding???? these bloggers are right "Air time"  just like your part on the show BS,  but nice try I guess

PAHousewife25

Heather, did you ever think that maybe the show you are on DID contact the other women because it may be experiencing ratings difficulties and wanted the added exposure by having Housewives on the series?   You acted very insecure as though they had to be lying because they certainly couldn't be offered the same role as you...I usually like you...Snap out of it

 @IluvLonnie Heather said in this blog

"I was aware that casting had called Gretchen, Alexis, and a handful of other ladies to check availability for a small walk-on role, which ended up getting written out of the show.

No one denies that Gretchen was contacted to check her availability. The problem comes to the difference of being "offered" and "turned down"".

 

 

PAHousewife25

I think they made it clear on the show that they were asked to do walk on roles as themselves...I know that most of the people on the show are incredibly phony and self absorbed but I'm not sure that having a walk on part as yourself constitutes being an actress...And I didn't hear either of the ladies say it was to "act"...

 There is nothing classy about Heather IMO. She is a snob and also is very controlling. I think she put the fear of god in Terry and I bet we don't see him for the rest of the season and I agree with you about how she rubbed it in their faces.She is so wrong on so many levels.

 @Fil007 i think it was was the wrong place and time to dig up old, dead issues. seems like the only reason Laurie has popped back into the picture is this long simmering issue that somebody's mother - in-law brought up. sheesh

 @Fil007 Lauri should be added back to

 @gidgi22 Jealous much.. Heather is a great addition to the other women..  She speak her mind but doesn't trash other while doing it.  so I would love her to have more Air Time.. she great.  no BS intended..

 @PAHousewife25 if you read her blog.. she said that the other women were contacted by the show.. before you speak ugly to others you should read the blog.. And no PAhousewife25.. the other girls would not be offered the same role as Heather.. Why?  Because Heather is and Actress.. the other two are wanna-bes with no experiences...  As they have both shown Grethen with her singing flop and Alexis with her News program disaster..

 Just as Heather didn't know why Gretchen had to tell her what Laurie had said about Vicky I'm not sure why Heather felt she needed to discuss Gretchen either.  Not everyone is chomping at the bit to be on television - there are so many "celebrities" out there now I don't know most of them when I hear their names...Gone are the days when celebrities were intriguing glamorous out of reach entities...Now, most people with a little popularity on YouTube or a an addiction to Meth or Barbies can be a celebrity...Can you say Honey Boo Boo?...Get over yourself

   I'm sure you are familiar with the saying "a picture is worth a thousand words"  I saw the show and the look on Heather's face when the other girls were saying they had been asked about the show and I heard her words when she talked about Gretchen.  They never once said it was the same part as Heather - they didn't even ask what her part was.  Her look was less than pleased...Let's be completely honest - Although as I stated in my comment I usually like Heather (and still do despite her pompous attitude in the last episode) she is certainly not an Oscar  or Emmy winner.  A quick check of IMDb confirms that...You however seem to have some aggression toward the other women...Them being offered a role does not take anything away from Heather...It seemed to me that she didn't want anyone to think she was offered the role on Malibu Country because of her being on the Housewives franchise and the other Housewives being offered roles would point out that it was the EXACT reason...So instead of enjoying her opportunity she tried to build herself up by ripping them down...a poor tactic that shows insecurity...You did the same thing...You slammed them to defend her...You didn't point out her strengths or list her fantastic films or long running major  series...You just trashed the others.. "the lady doth protest too much, me thinks"

   I was Wendy in Peter Pan in the third grade...for the record I'm not an actress either ...

Oh and btw, casting directors, directors, producers, writers no one NO ONE , Heather, worth their weight in script pages would discuss offers to anyone past current or future.  Actors think they know , are in the know.--oh, if they only knew...

@PAHousewife25 @diannantexas Very well put. I too like Heather and up to this episode, except for the cake eating over the top reaction, thought that she was an honest and classy person! Again, I say Heather, please don't take on this role.

 @MimsyDelMar  @ocdoll  @diannantexas  @PAHousewife25 MimsyDelMar, I agree with Ocdoll, that Heather is an actress in the same vein as Tori Spelling...which isn't saying much! I agree with you that Heather didn't have a father in show business(that I know of) and went to acting school. Using your logic all of these housewives are 'actor's', just not of the Shakespearean ilk.
