Imitation may not always be the sincerest form of flattery for the ladies on The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 17.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Orange County on Bravo Thursday, July 11 at 9/8c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

On Episode 10, cast members Tamra Judge, Heather Dubrow, Shannon Storms Beador, Emily Simpson, Jennifer Pedranti, and Gina Kirschenheiter and friend Taylor Armstrong dressed up as one another for a theme party (the OG of the OC, Vicki Gunvalson, dressed as herself). And while the outfits were up to each ’Wife’s interpretation, Gina wasn’t too pleased when she saw Shannon wearing something that didn’t represent “current Gina.”

After the episode aired, the ladies took to their respective Instagram pages to share their thoughts on the costumes and the theme party itself. Then, during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen the night the episode aired, Heather Dubrow revealed how she really feels about the tension between former close pals Gina and Shannon. 

Heather Dubrow’s Take on Shannon Storms Beador and Gina Kirschenheiter’s Drama

In addition to Gina not loving the outfit Shannon chose to represent her, the two got into a disagreement later in the episode about comments that had been made about Shannon’s relationship with her now-ex, John Janssen

Once the episode aired, Gina and Shannon shared their perspectives on the matter on their respective Instagram feeds. When asked on WWHL how she felt about Shannon and Gina’s social media interactions, Heather had a surprising answer.

“I’ve been busy,” Heather said on the late-night talk series after admitting that she didn’t realize the two were disagreeing online. 

The mom of four has indeed been busy, as her husband, Dr. Terry Dubrow, recently dealt with a serious health scare.

On the WWHL After Show, Terry got choked up while describing how his “best friend and beloved wife” saved his life. Find out what else the plastic surgeon had to say about the harrowing situation by watching the video below.

Are Heather Dubrow and Gina Kirschenheiter friends?

Though Heather wasn’t aware of what was going on with Shannon and Gina, she is back on track in her friendship with the latter RHOC cast member.

When asked how the two are doing today, Heather had a simple response.

“Good,” she said, also noting that she did “appreciate” the Long Island native being there for her during the IMDb drama with Taylor and Tamra. 

See more from Gina, Shannon, Heather, and the rest of the cast by tuning in to RHOC Season 17 on Wednesdays at 8/7c on Bravo. Stream episodes the next day on Peacock too.
