Maybe Heather was too traumatized by her “visceral reaction” to Kelly Dodd‘s “low-base bullshit” to go down that road again. Or maybe she just wanted to give Terry Dubrow and Paul Nassif additional press for Botched By Nature. Heather went on the road with the duo last weekend to promote the show, and shared some antics about working with Paul and Terry.
The show begins with a lot of banter between Heather and her assistant Natalie. While I think they’re cute together, I’m getting to the meat and potatoes (two things Heather probably doesn’t eat!) to focus on their discussion of Real Housewives of Orange County because the podcast is almost 90 minutes.
Heather warns there are no “bridge episodes” this season and it’s a nonstop whirlwind. “Something happens every week of this entire season – it was nuts.”
Thankfully, Heather did not dissect Vicki’s non-pology to Shannon Beador, or anymore about Brooks. Just my two cents before we dive in: I don’t think Shannon should forgive Vicki – of all the women who Vicki betrayed with Brooks’ scam, Shannon was hit the hardest (on top of David’s affair), and truly was a friend to Vicki. I want to stop discussing Brooks, but it seems the scab just continues to fester amongst the cast and they aren’t ready to move on from what happened.
Heather begins by defending how Vicki Gunvalson is dealing with Briana’s health – like Vicki going to work after Briana was in the hospital. “It’s not like Briana was in the hospital one day and now she’s leaving her,” Heather explains. “This has been an ongoing thing, so which day does she choose?”
Heather promised that while the next few episodes are easing us in by introducing Kelly, and reconnecting the women, things really take off in a few episodes. “This was a building episode,” she says. “A lot of information was sort of subtly given, so I hope people were really paying attention.”
Kyle admits she doesn’t like to talk about Kim aroundLisa Rinna. “She’s had problems with Kim so that’s why it’s uncomfortable for me to speak about anything regarding Kim with Lisa Rinna. They left off so badly that I don’t feel comfortable talking about Kim with her. It makes me feel guilty.”
Heather Dubrow’s World is rapidly becoming Bravo Blogs, The Extended Version, but I find Heather to be a good host, with a fluid style of conversing with her guests. It’s not just a gossip show, but Heather genuinely tries to explore the topics and what’s going on. In short, Heather’s good at this. Bravo. [pun intended].
Heather and Lisa met in acting class 18-years-ago. Preempting Lisa’s appearance Heather declares, “She’s the exact same person. What you see on Beverly Hills Housewives – that’s who she is. There’s nothing put on about her.” Well, except her lips…
