Who knew last night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live would ignite a Bravolebrity war? Jeff Lewis was a guest on the show and during the network-aired portion he was asked to name his favorite and least favorite housewives. He revealed that Real Housewives of Orange County’s Heather Dubrow was his least favorite (Shannon Beador for his favorite) and then didn’t really expand much on it…until the After Show.
A fan asked Heather on Twitter why Jeff would choose her and she replied, “Who knows. Asshole.”
On the After Show, Andy Cohen urged him to share what the deal was between the two of them. Jeff shared a story about being seated across fro her at a dinner at Shannon Beador’s house, at first saying he just didn’t care for her, but then went on to claim that she had treated the staff poorly and he didn’t like it. Heather didn’t take his accusations too well, naturally. It’s one thing to just not like someone, but it’s another to accuse them of poor treatment of others.
Heather Tweeted, lashing out at the Flipping Out star. “Wow @JLJeffLewis NO words for you. You were beyond rude to me at @ShannonBeador party and I have NEVER called you out publicly. #loser.” She continued, “Really?Ungrateful @JLJeffLewis ? Plz.VERY cognizant of what I have. Ur LUCKY to have a lovely man who puts up w/you. Despite your rude behavior to me at @ShannonBeador party, I never would have said what I think of you.Now I will.”
She later defended her harsh reaction, “My reaction is based on the fact I’ve kept quiet about his rude behavior and he chose to go after me.”
Jeff then went on to do an interview with New York Live this afternoon and shared a bit more about the situation, but this time he left out his comments of Heather being rude to the help.
Jeff dished about the feud with Heather and her Twitter rant, “there was a little bit of profanity and a little bit of name calling. There was no rant on my part. I went on Watch What Happens Live last night, Andy asked me a simple question: who’s your favorite housewife and who’s your least favorite. I said Heather Dubrow. I don’t hate her, I don’t think about her, this is no big deal. She’s just my least favorite.” (just a note that I’ve updated this. I’m not sure if Jeff asked them to edit the video, but the Teresa Giudice part is cut from the vid now. Maybe he said her name by accident since he initially said Shannon B for his fav on WWHL. Who knows.)
He added, “She went crazy, she started calling me names on Twitter. and it just turned into something that I don’t understand. All I responded was, she had called me profanity and I just responded with ‘classy.’ Because here’s someone who is a self-professed, well-mannered person, but that’s not what I saw last night.”
The hosts point out that intermingling of Bravolebrities is a little like high school. Jeff agreed with them. “It is like high school, but normally I get along with everybody. If I don’t like you and you don’t like me, who cares? Plenty of other people we can get along with! We don’t have to attack each other and I didn’t mean it like ‘I hate you’ because I don’t. I went to a birthday dinner at Shannon Beador’s, Heather was across the table, LOVED Terry, had the best night, didn’t love her. Big deal.” Jeff adds that you cannot be in this business if you’re someone who can’t brush it off.
Ouch. Do you think Heather was rude to the wait staff?
Heather is going to elaborate on her side of things in her next podcast. And obviously we can’t wait…
