I will never  get over the Real Housewives of Orange County ladies arguing about who really got the offer to act on the now-defunct show Malibu Country. That was such a train wreck, but aside from that I never know what to make of Heather Dubrow’s acting career. I watch TV like it’s my job (oh wait, it is) and I had no idea who Heather was until she was cast on RHOC, but apparently she’s an accomplished actress. Now, Heather is set to appear on the show Young & Hungry.

If you’re unfamiliar with Young & Hungry, that’s your loss. I’ve been watching the show since it started and it’s actually hilarious and surprisingly mature for a show that is on the network formerly known as ABC Family. Still, I’m curious about how Fancy Pants will be utilized and how long she will appear.


Heather posted a photo of her Young & Hungry script to share the news with her Instagram followers. The label on Heather’s script indicates that she will be playing a character named Natasha Cook Campbell. Like I said before, I have no shame admitting that I do watch Young & Hungry, so based on my dedicated viewership, I have to conclude…. that I have no insight on this character. She doesn’t have the same last name as any of the main characters so I assume she’s not related, but who knows? Other than that, I have nothing to go on.

Nevertheless, I’m excited for the Young & Hungry and RHOC crossover that I never expected to happen. Heather didn’t share too much about her role on social media. All she wrote was that she was “Excited for a fun week on @youngandhungryseries !” and she tagged the cast.

On Twitter, cast member Amy Carrero tweeted Heather, “Welcome to the family” and Heather replied with some kissy face emojis. This is making me hope that Heather will appear for more than one episode. I mean, the word “family” isn’t a word that gets thrown around to everyone- or maybe it is? What do I know?

I’m actually really excited to watch this. I have no idea how many other Real Housewives fans also watch Freeform, but maybe this will give the show some new viewership?’
