Heather Dubrow is a better woman than I am, because if my so-called friend acted like such an ungrateful twat when I was trying to do her a favor, I'd be all like 'see ya, wouldn't wanna be ya!' However, I don't live my life on Real Housewives of Orange County where faux friendships reign supreme!
The last two weeks, everything Heather does bugs Tamra Barney. Now I've often called ol' Heather Prissy Pants out for her arrogance, but she's been nothing but a good friend to Tamra who accused Heather of trying to sabotage her business when she chose to initially feature a different gym while guest co-hosting Good Day LA. Then when Heather announced she'd be doing a segment with CUT Fitness, Tamra, the ingrate, complained that Heather was too little, too late and then claimed Heather was awkward and 'frosty' on set. Finally the two friends hashed it out and according to Heather are back on track. I dunno, Dubrow – sounds like a risky move to me!
"I've gotten a lot of comments on social media about why I didn't cancel Tamra's segment on Good Day L.A. after the way she treated me at Shannon [Beador]'s holiday party. Well, first of all, I don't have ANY power regarding what guests the show books or unbooks," Heather writes in her Bravo blog.
Last night on Real Housewives of Orange County the dramas were as real as the friendships were fake. And Shannon Beador is about to learn a nasty lesson in Housewives betrayal – right on top of learning one about heartbreak. Why is this exactly the plot of a Lifetime Movie? Oh goody!
So, let's just break this down; either Tamra Barney's new doctor is injecting her with crazy-hormones (and by that I mean more crazy than usual hormones) or girlfriend is having a nervous breakdown. Of course, that still doesn't excuse her rancid personality and wretched two-faced-ness. Do personalities spoil like milk?
Tamra is still mad at Heather Dubrow for having a life beyond her or RHOC - and for daring to promote another gym on TV besides CUT Fitness. I mean that horrible hoochie-hussy – she is like single-handedly destroying Tamra's business. As if Tamra's behavior on RHOC isn't at allllll responsible for destroying her reputation.
I swear, if they're not arguing about chairs, the ladies of Real Housewives of Orange County can find something equally as benign to bitch about–like gym promotions! Look, I understand why Tamra Judge wanted to be mad at Heather Dubrow for not offering up a CUT Fitness segment on her previous stint as a guest host on Good Day LA, but I don't really think that Heather had any pull regarding the situation. I'm not even a Heather fan this season (what happened?!?), but both women agree that Heather called her to fill her in on the situation when it happened, and Heather tried to rectify things–and promote CUT!–when given the opportunity. These women will complain about anything…and try to stir up drama at every turn. Lizzie Rovsek clearly learned that from watching past seasons…what was she trying to pull on Monday's episode?
Taking to her Bravo blog, Tamra begins, "Good Day L.A…. Let me tell you why I was so upset since you did not hear the whole story. Last summer I got a text from Heather saying she was going to co-host GDLA and wanted me to know that GDLA was bringing on another fitness studio and she had NOTHING to do with it. I said 'No worries' and thanked her for letting me know. I know there are a lot of gyms/fitness studios out there. A week later I see the segment on GDLA and they have the fitness studio SHE works out at (50 miles away from GDLA studio), HER chef and HER clothier on the same segment. So I thought to myself, 'REALLY, Heather, you had NO input, however all the guests were people you deal with directly?' My feelings were hurt!"
I believe Heather pitched CUT for Good Day L.A. because she wanted to, not because she was trying to right a wrong, and she seemed genuinely excited to share the news with Tamra and Eddie. Too bad Tamra is an ungrateful shrew. By making such a big deal about a competing gym being mentioned on Good Day L.A., she gave it even more press through Real Housewives of Orange County. Since Bravo showed a clip of the Good Day L.A. segment we all know the name of the gym as well. Tamra isn't too bright.
Heather took to her Bravo blog to discuss the drama surrounding Tamra and Shannon and to discuss Vicki Gunvalson's claim that she faked the perfectly timed phone call from her son. Perfectly timed, as in gave her an excuse to flee the party, not 10:30. Because, I'm not sure if you heard, but it was 10:30 when the call took place. If they said that one… more… time…
SoShannon Beador took to her Bravo blog to complain about Heather – not Tamra, mind you, but Heather. I can't. Don't get me wrong, Heather annoys me, but bitching about her while ignoring Tamra's drama queen antics? Yeah, no.
Out of nowhere and with her enemy safely out of sight, Tamra announced that she needed to replenish the blood in her alcohol, err, alcohol in her blood. #DependsOnTheDay "When Tamra, Lizzie, Danielle, and I were sitting in my living room, Tamra announced that she was feeling uncomfortable," explained Shannon. "I had numerous conversations with Tamra about her feelings that Heather talks down to her. I wanted her to be honest about how she felt."
Last night on Real Housewives of Orange County a certain Heather Dubrow got a taste of her own medicine. No, I don't mean she was forced to wear Target clothing, I mean Tamra Barney shanked her with some petty, made up reasons to hate while at a party and Heather became the new Gretchen is the new Alexis. Stage an intervention to call someone fake, wind up in an intervention being told you're fake (and condescending!).
See, it's a dog eat dog world that Andy Cohen created and you have stab someone with storyline drama before they can stab you. Alas Heather considered Tamra her a 'real' friend. Boy was she wrong, because you can't teach an old dog new tricks. But at least Vicki Gunvalson behaved decently… for a change!
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here's a roundup of some of our favorite photos from this week! Enjoy!
So yes, Shannon Beador and Heather think their holiday cards are on par with the White House's in terms of preeminent importance. Shannon tells us that people look forward to her card every year and Heather gives a gushing speech about what it represents to her family (Time immemorial? Neil deGrasse Tyson joke!). They both hire full glam crews and professional photography teams to make these visions come to life. I think I saw Anna Wintour scuttling around behind the ladder in Heather's shoot.
It's nice to know that I have some things in common with these two wealthy beacons of the upper echelons – because even though I take my holiday photo with an iPhone, my kids misbehave just as much as Heather and Shannon's do! Anyway, Heather is taking her card in what looks like the parking lot of a storage facility. Maybe since they're between mega mansions she's going for homeless chic?
