Real Housewives of Orange County

Real Housewives of Orange County hasn’t even aired yet, but newest Housewife Heather Dubrow is about to get a taste of the unfortunate side effects of fame — even of the C-List variety!

RadarOnline has just uncovered that Heather’s husband, Terry Dubrow, a renowned plastic surgeon who is no stranger to reality TV in his own right has been sued at least twice by two different patients! See, you go on a reality show and ALLLL your skeletons come dancing out of the closet!

One former patient, Leah Goodman, filed a personal injury lawsuit against Terry and the Newport Heights Medical Center where she was treated. Documents obtained pertaining to the suit, which was filed in March 2011, show Leah claiming she has suffered from “wage loss” along with “loss of earning capacity,” among other financial set-backs because of the injuries she suffered at the hands of Dr. Dubrow’s medical negligence and malpractice!

In the lawsuit filed directly against Dr. Dubrow, Leah is seeking $25,000 in damages as well as unspecified damages for the medical malpractice and general negligence she is alleging took place. Copies of the court documents are below.

Sadly this is not an isolated incident for Dr. Dubrow! Last year, former patient June Hofherr filed a suit against the doctor and the Newport Bluffs Surgery Center claiming that she suffered from complications related to a procedure Dr. Dubrow performed on her.

According to the court documents, “Defendants failed to disclose material risks of the procedure to the plaintiff and thereby failed to fully describe the procedures that were proposed and/or exceeded the scope of the disclosure and thereby failed to obtain informed consent from the plaintiff for said course of care, treatment and/or surgery. Had plaintiff been adequately informed of all the risks of the procedure, plaintiff would not have consented to said procedure.”

Mark Hofherr, who is also filing suit, claims June has been ” unable to perform the duties of a spouse and the work and services usually performed in the care, maintenance and management of the family home,” following the surgeries, adding that she “will be unable to perform such work, services and duties in the future.”

Pretty serious stuff for Dr. Dubrow who I am sure will be performing many day of beauty events on the ladies of RHOC. That’s probably the real reason Alexis Bellino isn’t a fan — she likes to pimp her plastic surgeon on the show!

With the Real Housewives of Orange County premiering in a few short weeks the first ladies of Bravo are out in full force promoting the new season. Bravo recently confirmed new Housewife Heather Dubrow and they have also released a preview clip of the upcoming season!

Season 7 is promising lots of drama (as well as some bad eighties costumes) and despite Vicki Gunvalson‘s insistence that everyone is getting along it seems like Gretchen Rossi is having some issues with both Vicki and Heather! Oh, yeah and we finally meet the other OC child support challenged boyfriend: Brooks Ayers!

Frankly, I’m surprised Vicki and Gretchen haven’t bonded over their woes. Apparently, Vicki’s children are less than thrilled with her new beau and some of the other women are concerned about how fast the relationship is moving hot on the heals of her split from Donn Gunvalson!

Tamra Barney and her soulmate/bathtub porno partner Eddie Judge are still together but there are some hurdles as “free bitch” Tamra has difficulty settling down and apparently lets another man touch her boob! Hey, she is the hottest Housewife! And taking a cue from the totally believable and awesome Real Housewives of New York storyline, there appears to be some sort of Tamra-related pregnancy scare. Oh, please…

Finally it seems that Gretchen and Tamra are able to put the past behind them and mend fences as we see Tamra apologize to her former nemesis, but will Gretchen and Tamra’s new-found closeness interfere in her relationship with Vicki?  The brief preview clip is below!

In other RHOC news, the new girl in the gated community recently introduced herself with a “Five Things You Don’t Know…” segment in Us Weekly! Heather, a former beauty queen, is originally from NYC and majored in Theater at Syracuse University where she aspired to be a Broadway actress! When an audition sent her to LA she “never looked back.”

She has since appeared in several TV roles on shows such as Married With Children! And despite being a full-time mom, she tries to fit in acting, joking that she “still [does] a pilot every year that doesn’t get picked up.”

Heather met her husband Terry Dubrow, a plastic surgeon, on a blind date. Terry is also a Reality TV veteran that appeared on such gems as The Swan and Bridalplasty. Of her family life Heather says, “My husband and I are very down to earth people. We’re not defined by where we live or what we have. We’re just normal people and we’re incredibly grateful for what we have and each other.” We’ll see about that! A photo of Heather, Terry and their four children, below.

Finally, it seems that Vicki and Jesus Barbie, original flavor, Alexis Bellino have made up! Alexis recently posted a photo of Vicki, Brooks, herself, and her king husband, Jim Bellino on her Facebook page under the caption: “It’s gonna be a great season!” The photo is below.

Real Housewives of Orange County Season 7 premiers on Bravo, February 7th at 9/8c.

The blondes are back!

The Bravo network just announced moments ago that the Real Housewives of Orange County season 7 will premiere on February 7!

Returning from last season are blondes Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Barney, Gretchen Rossi and Alexis Bellino, but fret not, because Bravo is confirming the addition of brunette new housewife Heather Dubrow. Heather is described as “a former actress and now stay-at-home mother of four who is married to a prominent Newport Beach plastic surgeon.”

Heather and husband Terry Dubrow have four kids together: twins Nicholas and Maximillia, 8, Katarina, 5, and Collette, 10 months. Despite her husband’s profession, Heather boasts in her Bravo bio that she has “never had plastic surgery” other than Botox and filler. Not quite sure we’re buying that!

PHOTOS – ALEXIS BELLINO GETS A NOSE JOB!

As for what we can expect this season, Vicki, still in the process of divorcing Donn, puts her house up for sale and introduces the wives to Brooks Ayers, her new Southern boyfriend. While finalizing her divorce from her ex-husband, Simon Barney, Tamra begins to take her relationship with boyfriend Eddie Judge to the next level.

Meanwhile, Gretchen begins a daring new chapter in her life when she takes to the stage as a singer and dancer with the Pussycat Dolls, as her relationship with Slade becomes strained due to his past issues with Vicki and Tamra. Alexis has no storyline “continues to test the boundaries of independence with her husband Jim when she gets a job as a correspondent with a local morning news show” and struggles with being a working mom.

The press release also states that longtime foes Tamra and Gretchen finally decide to bury the hatchet and begin a blossoming friendship, leaving Alexis fearing that she is losing Gretchen — a.k.a. her only ally on the show.

RHOC returns to Bravo on Tuesday, February 7 (9/8c). Below is a video interview with new housewife Heather!

TELL US – EXCITED ABOUT THE NEW SEASON? THOUGHTS ON THE STORYLINES?

Alexis Bellino Nose Job

There’s something different about Alexis Bellino. Is it her new nose perhaps?

The Real Housewives of Orange County star is finally admitting to a nose job – her first facial plastic surgery, or so she claims! Speaking to the Orange County Register, Alexis explains it’s nothing drastic, but people are wondering if something about her face has changed!

“Most people don’t even know I had a nose job,” she said of the new schnoz she purchased in mid-October, “They notice something [new] about me. It’s perked up my face.”

Alexis reveals it was not only vanity that led her to alter the face God gave her; it was a medical procedure! According to Alexis she got the surgery to help with the debilitating sinus infections she has suffered from for years. And while she was at it, she decided to change the way her nose looked. Apparently there was a bump resulting from when she broke her nose at age six.

Alexis’ employer Dr. Michael Niccole, a board certified otolaryngologist and plastic surgeon, who has also done Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Sheree Whitfield’s breast implants and some of Alexis’ other enhancements, performed the surgery. “She asked me if I could make the tip a little more defined and also file down her bump.”

Sadly, Alexis says she experienced a difficult recovery which took “weeks longer” because it was more than just a cosmetic procedure and she is still slightly swollen. But she loves her new nose! And so does Dr. Niccole! “Wait ’til you see her nose. It’s just perfect,” he enthused. “I don’t want to brag, she’s a pretty girl, I didn’t have Jimmy durante’s nose [to work with]. But wait ’til you see her. It’s really gorgeous.”

Who else loves her new sniffer? Husband, Jim-Blob Bellino! “Oh, he loves it,” Dr Niccole assured. “Thank God. I prayed for about a week on that one.”

For those of you wondering how changing her nose coincides with Alexis’ strict Christian beliefs – there’s no conflicts. WWJD? According to Alexis, He would get a nose job if it made him happy! “I believe it is okay for me to have a procedure done on my body because it boosts my confidence and I believe that God wants me to be happy,” Alexis recently stated in a blog defending her plastic surgery and wardrobe choices. Well, whatever makes you happy Jesus Barbie!

THOUGHTS ON ALEXIS’ NEW NOSE? CAN YOU EVEN TELL THE DIFFERENCE? DO YOU BELIEVE SHE SHOULD STOP WITH THE PLASTIC SURGERY?

Gretchen Rossi is talking the upcoming season of Real Housewives of OC, specifically new Housewife Heather Dubrow. It sounds like Heather was in for a wild ride of Housewives hazing before settling in and being accepted into the cast full of catty over-grown mean girls.

Speaking to Us Magazine, Gretchen reveals “we were pretty hard on her.” Although Gretchen is not revealing who that “her” is, because Bravo has yet to confirm that Heather, who has been spotted filming several times with the cast and was mentioned by Vicki Gunvalson in a recent interview, is the newest Housewife! “At first I didn’t like her, but now I really like her,” Gretchen explains.

“As I’ve gotten to know her the friendship has blossomed. She’s blunt and she’s very straight forward yet she has a very classic and sophisticated appeal to her. I think the audience is really going to like her. ”

And poor Heather was definitely put through the wringer! “We just gave her a hard time and every time she said something we’d just be rolling our eyes or doing something, but nothing too harsh,” Gretchen informs us. “We don’t make her go running in her underwear around the street or anything like that!” Oh, how kind of you…

In other RHOC news, Gretchen and her boyfriend, fiancé, leased object, partner – whatever – Slade Smiley hosted a cancer benefit this past week and the OC Register was on hand to cover the event. The event, Magic of Giving, was hosted in honor Slade’s son Grayson Smiley, who is battling a rare form of brain cancer and has undergone seven brain surgeries. Slade has credited much of his financial difficulty to providing treatment for his son’s care, for which as you can imagine, bills are exorbitant.

The $50 a head gala, held at Victor Paul Salon raised money for the Beckstrand Cancer Foundation, which assists cancer families experiencing financial difficulty by helping to pay medical bills.

The evening featured a magic show by famous illusionist Anthony “the Magic” Hernandez and was attended by several other celebrities, including Project Runway’s Michael Costello. The entire OC cast was in attendance (including Heather), as Bravo was filming the evening for the upcoming season!

Vicki, who attended the event with boyfriend Brooks Ayers, was happy to be included. And singing a different tune she had nothing but empathy for Slade’s situation! Hmmm… is it because she now knows from experience?

“We’re all either stricken or know somebody that has been stricken with cancer. My heart goes out to Slade,” Vicki sympathized. Her own daughter Briana Wolfsmith (who eloped this week) has undergone tests for cancerous tissues.

“Anything I can do to help Grayson, I will,” Vicki continued. “Everything aside, and it’s about this little boy. At the end of the day, we are all compassionate. That’s why we’re here. We love little Grayson. I’ve known him for eight years now. He doesn’t deserve this. It’s a tough life for him.”

“I’m very thrilled people that people are willing to give up their time to support something like this,” Slade announced. “Everyone’s affected in some way.” As for his take on the upcoming season 7 of RHOC, which is currently filming, Slade promises big changes!

“You’ll see a lot this season, a lot of relationships have evolved and changed,” Slade revealed. “There’s been a major attempt at mending broken fences. There is still some conflict within the women, but they all came together for Beckstrand.” Indeed, based on some recent photos taken during filming; it seems the ladies are making an effort to put pettiness aside and strive for a more fun-loving, positive seventh season! Here’s hoping, at least…

Ryan Culberson

A day after we broke the news of Briana Wolfsmith’s elopement, more details are coming out!

For starters, did Briana inform her mother, Vicki Gunvalson of the Real Housewives of Orange County, about her plans to elope? Or did Vicki find out about her daughter’s wedding much later? Well, it appears the later might have been the case.

See Reality Tea has uncovered Briana’s marriage certificate (posted below), which shows she actually tied the knot with Marine Ryan Culberson on October 23, 2011.

This date is important as Vicki was busy announcing her daughter’s engagement on November 3! A week and a half after her daughter tied the knot in Las Vegas.

The November 3 date is, however, also significant as it’s listed as the “record date” on the marriage certificate. The “marriage date” is 10/23/2011.

So did Briana tell her mom she was engaged almost 2 weeks after tying the knot? It would appear so. Unless Vicki was simply trying to keep the Real Housewives of OC season 7 storyline under wraps.

We will find out soon. The RHOC continues to film and is scheduled to debut on Bravo very early next year. As for Vicki, she has yet to respond to our original report, simply tweeting the following yesterday: “Im thankful for my family and fans.”

Vicki and daughter Briana have had their ups and downs. Vicki even revealed on the RHOC reunion back in June that Briana “turned on” her and started being disrespectful to her after she chose to divorce husband Donn Gunvalson.

Our insider tells us the union between the recently divorced Ryan and Briana was a “quick engagement and marriage.” Below is Briana’s Vegas wedding certificate -

Ryan Culberson

Real Housewives of Orange County star Briana Wolfsmith has officially become Briana Culberson.

While Briana’s mom Vicki Gunvalson announced her engagement November 3 via Twitter, a source confirms to Reality Tea that Briana, a 24-year-old nurse, has actually eloped and gotten married in Las Vegas!

Briana’s new husband is Ryan Culberson, a military man and a North Carolina native. As of the moment, there is no word yet on how long they’ve dated or known each other. It’s presumably less than a year as Vicki was still trying to set her daughter up on the last season of the RHOC. Our source tells us they met at a bar.

Our source also adds that Ryan, a Marine, has been previously married before and is actually recently divorced — having ended his marriage at the end of 2010.

No word yet on how Vicki feels about her daughter eloping though we will likely find out on the upcoming season of the RHOC — which is currently filming.

Congrats to Briana!

In other OC news, Vicki recently posted some new photos to her Facebook page of herself and her costars plus boyfriend Brooks Ayers. Those are below!

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON BRIANA ELOPING?


Foreclosure? What foreclosure? Just a year after being in foreclosure, Real Housewives of Orange County star Alexis Bellino is now living in a new multi-million dollar home!

The Real Estalker first broke the news of Alexis’s fancy new home. While it still remains unclear if Alexis actually purchased the home with hubby Jim Bellino, or is renting the fancy digs, what is clear is that she now resides in the three-story Mediterranean-style house! The price on the home? Listings have ranged from $4,999,999 to $5,900,000 within the last year.

Alexis’s new home is 7,146 square feet and boasts five bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms. The home also comes with an elevator, eight-car garage, a rooftop deck, private beach access plus ocean views from nearly every room.

If you recall, on the OC reunion show this year, Alexis denied rumors of financial troubles and then promised her and hubby Jim would be paying cash on their next home purchase! Though it’s still a puzzle on how a couple goes from being in foreclosure and filing bankruptcy for their company (one of Jim’s businesses) to residing in a $5 mil mansion — all within a year! Perhaps the new season of the RHOC will shed some light on this.

In the meantime, more photos of Alexis’ new home are below!
