This season of Real Housewives of Orange County started off pretty promising. The big drama kicked off on episode two. A recently returned Heather Dubrow lost her sh** over some gossip about her friend, Nicole James. And all roads led back to Shannon Beador. We watched Shannon tell Gina Kirschenheiter and Emily Simpson over lunch that she knew Nicole from the past. But Shannon wasn’t sure she was the same person because she went by a different name back then. And more importantly, this Nicole is close with both Heather and Terry Dubrow. Why would Nicole, who sued Terry over her boob job, be friends with the Dubrows, Shannon wondered. Is this suspicious, or is Shannon simply confused? Or both?
Gina immediately took this info to Heather during her sushi party. And here Heather was just busy trying to show off her mega mansion. While Gina spilled the beans,
Drunk Fun Emily interrogated Nicole on the couch. You could tell Nicole was wondering where it all went wrong. But such is housewives, ammirite? So Gina was sure that she was alerting Heather to an embarrassing situation.
But instead of being mad at Nicole, Heather and Terry made sure to comfort her once she dissolved into tears. The poor thing just wanted to party and instead, everyone is talking about her past boob job.

Of course we know that Heather hates Shannon. But why exactly were Heather and Terry so forgiving of someone who sued him for an alleged botched boob job? Terry is now explaining his side to Page Six. He started off by admitting that it came out of the blue for him. Terry said of the lawsuit news, “I was blindsided with it.” He explained, “At first, it was like, ‘Wait, who, what, huh?’ She had a different name back then. I don’t remember much of it. I had to even ask her, ‘What happened?’”
Terry added, “To be honest with you, my initial reaction was I felt bad — because that meant that there was a problem. And so if I’m your doctor and there’s a problem, I feel bad about it.” He confessed, “Obviously, we worked through it and it was no big deal. Heather and Nicole are friends and she’s a wonderful girl.”
In the episode, Nicole cried and revealed that she was young and had “pushy attorneys” who pressured her to file the lawsuit. She told Terry that she didn’t think he “did anything wrong.” She even dropped the suit before it even went to court. Terry confirmed,“It happened 20 years ago and it was one of these things that came and went and it really wasn’t a big deal.”
So it sounds like for him, it was easy to forgive and forget. Now will Heather ever forgive Shannon? Either way, we know she definitely won’t forget.
