Whoooa nelly! Whomever sold Heather Dubrow's lavish Orange County mansion landed quite the commission check!
The Real Housewives of Orange County star unloaded her fully-customized, stunning mansion (which includes a fireplace in one of the master bathrooms) for a whopping $16.45 million!
AOL Real Estate reveals the home was never publicly listed and sold through private sale in December. Heather and Terry purchased the gorgeous property, which overlooks the ocean, in 2004 for $3.3 million and spent an additional $7 million constructing the house from scratch.
In a new interview the Real Housewives of Orange County couple says things are better then ever between the sheets and elsewhere. Is Slade paying his child support yet? And their babymaking and marriage plans will be a "hot topic" on the upcoming season 8.
"This is the happiest we’ve been in the four years since we’ve had a relationship," Gretchengushes to OK!. "Our relationship continues to get better and better. Everyday we find some more that we love about each other and it’s just a really blissful relationship."
Okay, here's a total honesty moment: I love blogging about reality stars because it makes me so appreciative of my wonderful family and amazing friends. I'm very thankful that I don't need a make-up line or a self-tanning package to be relevant. The truth is, I'll never be relevant like that, and I'm fine with that. However, there are some stories that make want to curl up in a ball and rock quietly in a corner. This is one of those.
I'll cut right to the chase. It's a what the bleep moment for sure. Real Housewives of Orange County'sGretchen Rossi is now designing for Rolls Royce. Now, I'm not jealous that Gretchen is teaming with the luxury car brand–I'm quite happy with my paid off Acura from another decade–but I'm really disappointed in Rolls Royce. She's getting her own Rolls Royce Edition. What is the world coming to, I implore you, what is the world coming to? Shouldn't those perks be set aside for the George Clooneys and Dame Helen Mirrens of the world? Apocalypse, I am ready for you.
The children of Real Housewives are often more interesting (and scandalous) than the Housewives themselves, unfortunately!
Remember former Real Housewives of Orange County star Tammy Knickerbocker whose husband passed away leaving her with two teenaged daughters and a bikini-promoted water business?
Well her daughter Lindsey Knickerbocker was arrested in December for a DUI that belongs on Cops! TMZ discovered that the now 23-year-old Lindsey went on a drunken rage and punched a police officer after crashing into several parked cars while attempting to drive.
Alexis, husband Jim Bellino and a group of her friends headed out for dinner at Andrea’s, the new hotspot inside Encore at Wynn Las Vegas. After dinner they hit up Surrender Nightclub where Alexis was surprised with a birthday cake. Alexis and company celebrated and danced to French house DJ/producer Cedric Gervais who launched his new monthly Vegas show-themed party “Le Show.” Alexis and Jim must really love it at the Wynn. It seems to be their go-to place in Vegas!
Before the festivities kicked off, Alexis shared, "Taking a bubble bath b4 a night on the town with 14 of my dearest friends! I love birthdays!!!! The only time I feel I can pamper myself…"
Jim gave Alexis some new bling for her bday. She gushed on Twitter, "Happy 36th birthday to me! A GORGEOUS eternity band from my wonderful husband! Yeeeee! Thank you jimmy!"
Casualty of wealth and privilege! While on a winter ski vacation just before New Year's,Vicki Gunvalson had one of her classic klutz moments and took a tumble. Poor Vicki ended up hurting her neck in the process.
In all seriousness the Real Housewives of Orange County star had quite the harrowing experience. TMZ reports she went barreling down a ski slope in Park City, UT after snowboarder abruptly cut her off. Vicki fell face first into the snow and got a serious case of whiplash in the process!
