I have no idea why Lynne Curtin is not on Real Housewives of Orange County anymore, but I will say that it is a major oversight. Not only did Lynne have a peculiar personality that was constantly entertaining, but her family life was chock full of drama- constantly. She always had an actual story line and it was just reality TV gold.
I always felt so bad watching her deal with her rebellious daughters and from what I hear the drama got even crazier after she left the show. Among other things, her daughter Alexa Curtin decided to become a porn star. She also recently accused a sheriff deputy of rape. And it seems like things are getting even more dramatic for Lynne’s youngest daughter.
Season 8 was Heather’s second season on the show and one comment production made was that Heather was basically forced into it by her husband Terry Dubrow, and was eager and anxious to get Alexis replaced with one of her friends. On her podcast Heather Dubrow’s World, she insists none of that is true.
“Some of the producers have some revisionist history going on!” scoffs Heather. Heather insists she never conspired to have Alexis replaced by a friend or chased them down with a casting suggestion after Alexis fled the CUT Fitness party. “That never happened,” Heather swears. “I had no one!”
So here’s a run-down of the behind-the-scenes reveals:
1. The producers lie to everyone. Case in point: Alexis Bellino. Alexis insists she quit;Heather Dubrow and Tamra Judge insist she was fired. At the CUT Fitness party, the opening party for season 8, after Alexis flees following the onslaught from the ladies, she is overheard telling the producers, “This is why I didn’t want to come back!” The producers admitted they worked behind the scenes to convince Alexis to return – including that Vicki Gunvalson would befriend her, and by hiring Lydia McLaughlin.
Heather Dubrow, benevolent dictatress and ever-so-snarky voice of reason on Real Housewives Of Orange County, is known for her calm, collected, witticisms that shoot through the BS like Lysol through a Mexican bachelorette party. She’s also known for her fabulous wardrobe, but that’s a whole ‘nother topic!
In anticipation of season 11, where Heather will finally unveil all 14 of the bathrooms in her massive new mansion, we’re remembering some of our favorite moments of Heather’s hubris – like the time she threw a fit over transporting her cake for her Colette champagne launch, and later we discovered the cake was fake! It was actually made of Styrofoam and inedible (#DietsByBravo). Good times!

Are y’all ready to see some house porn? They may have missed their March move-in deadline, but Heather Dubrow and husband Terryon the home stretch of finishing their dream mansion. Like the Real Housewives of Orange County couple, the home is small and understated, with just enough space for their family of six. And a hundred other people…and a tree…in the basement. I’m not positive, but I think their master bedroom is bigger than my entire house.
As furniture slowly but surely makes it way into the giant abode, dubbed Dubrow Chateau, the Botched star reveals he hasn’t been to the site in weeks. Heather insists her husband stay out of the construction phase because she doesn’t want his “constructive” (haha!) criticism. Of course, we’re sure to be treated to progress updates when the RHOC season debuts on June 20th. In the meantime, you can check out a video tour from Heather. I’m not going to say the rooms are so enormous that her voice echos, but…the rooms are so big her voice echos.

This week’s episode of Heather Dubrow’s World included some scoop on the new season of The Real Housewives of Orange County, plus a little info on the upcoming Season 8: Uncensored special. Heather also gave a quick update on the investment-gone-scam lawsuits.
Heather says that the RHOC cast filmed a cool special for a behind the scenes look at season 8 (we’re on season 11 right now, just fyi). Season 8 was the year Lydia McLaughlin joined. “They sat us all down and did interviews with us.” She says that it was the season that Gretchen Rossiproposed to Slade Smiley. Heather says they got to talk about anything and everything and break down the fourth wall during this look back. “We talked about the producers, we talked about the other cast members, it is so cool. I’ve seen pieces of it. It’s funny, it’s sad – some of it, and it’s interesting.”
