Heather Dubrow stepped away from The Real Housewives of Orange County back in Season 11, and she's admitted that to this day that when people meet her they think she's going to be "proper and polite and nice," but as she noted, "I think people are surprised, though, that I curse a little bit, like a lot."
She spilled all in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, adding, "I think the biggest misconception of me is that I have a stick up my ass I think that especially when I started Housewives, I was so scared of how I was going to come off. I was really closed off and buttoned up and it’s just really not me. I’m a much looser person and I like to have fun and I’m not judgmental."
Before she lived her life out loud on RHOC, it was Terry Dubrow who helped convince Heather that Real Housewives was the right world for her. Still, putting their marriage out there for the world to see wasn't always easy, and viewers watched their marital struggles during their tenure on the show as Terry tried to find time for work and his family.

"I think it was on our third season, we were fighting. I mean, we were just fighting a lot and it wasn’t like us," she said about what it was like for them to share their relationship with the world – but ultimately they learned how to make it work.
So, does she have any regrets about putting her life out there or having to deal with all the drama of the group dynamic?
"I regret things that I said. I regret things that I did, but isn’t that just true of life in general? I think it’s what you take away from it in how you do better in your life, if you become a better person and learn from it and I feel I’ve been doing that or been trying to do my best to become a more self-actualized person and learn from those missteps and those mistakes that we all make," she noted.
