There's been no shortage of drama since Heather Dubrow returned to The Real Housewives of Orange County in Season 16. But that's something she's quite used to, having experienced all sorts of conflict in this social circle in her first tenure on the show.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Orange County on  Peacock and the Bravo App.

And during Heather's appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen in February 2022, we were all reminded of one of her most dramatic moments that didn't even involve a Housewife. "We just counted down the top 25 fights in the Housewives world, ridiculous fights, and you just brought up such a good one," Andy Cohen said to Heather during the WWHL After Show.

That would be the disagreement Heather had with Sarah Winchester, a friend of Alexis Bellino and Gretchen Rossi, back in Season 7 of RHOC. At a party celebrating her decision to legally change her last name to Dubrow, Heather memorably confronted Sarah after she ate the bow off of a cake before it was served at the event. But Sarah remained firm in her stance and unapologetic about snacking on the confection, causing some major conflict to break out among the whole group, including some of the ladies' significant others.

Read on to see what Heather had to say about the iconic moment and to find out where see and Sarah stand today.

Heather Dubrow Reflects on Sarah Winchester Eating the Bow off Her Cake

Though it all seemed pretty serious at the time, Heather said on the 2022 episode of WWHL that she now looks back at that moment with more levity. "That's the dumbest fight ever," Heather recalled before playfully quoting herself from the moment, "'You broke the bow off my cake and ate it.'"

Heather ultimately asked Sarah to leave the party at her home the night of the bow incident, but that doesn't mean she harbors any ill will toward her today. In fact, Heather shared during WWHL that she ran into Sarah not too long ago at a Mexican restaurant. "She looked good," Heather said.

Where Heather Dubrow and Sarah Winchester Stand Today

Heather shared a more recent update with regards to Sarah on October 9, 2023. In an interview with Bustle, she was asked to name her "most iconic moment" on RHOC, and she ultimately chose her aforementioned quote about Sarah breaking the bow off her cake and eating it. 

From there, Heather was asked if she's "ever heard from Sarah" following the incident. "I saw her at a restaurant maybe two years ago and just said 'Hi,'" Heather shared. "You know what, unless someone hurts my kids, I really am fine with everyone."
