Selling Sunset Star Heather Rae Young Had Vocal Cord Surgery

When Netflix said that Selling Sunset Season 5 would be released in March of 2022, I didn’t think they meant the end of March. But here we are, halfway through the month, and I’m still over here waiting for a release date. Thankfully the cast has done plenty in the off-season to keep us occupied.

We’ve watched (and I’m using that word very loosely) Chrishell Stause and Jason Oppenheim get together and then break up. All with the help and hiding of Mary Fitzgerald. Not to mention Chrishell’s newly found feistiness. Girl’s not backing down for nobody.

Christine Quinn, who always brings the drama, is offering it up. This time, in the form of ex-friend and current co-worker Emma Hernan. Who may or may not be sharing a house with their shared ex-fiancé Peter Cornell. Who also dated Heather Rae Young at some point, and works at the Oppenheim Group.

Speaking of Heather, she’s now Heather Rae El Moussa since tying the knot with Tarek El Moussa. Or Mr. El Moussa to you. And, in case you were wondering, Christine didn’t score an invite.

Since marriage, Heather and Tarek have been vocal about starting IVF and expanding their family. They’ve also moved and been filming a home improvement show together. As you do. Especially if your name is Tarek, and your new wife looks suspiciously like your old wife. Just saying.

According to E! News they’ve now tackled another health problem. This time damage done to Heather‘s vocal cords. Heather underwent surgery after returning home from a romantic getaway with Tarek and friends to Cabo.

Heather posted on Instagram, “It was a long time coming for me as I’ve been battling vocal stress for years. After resting for 3 months I was never going to be 100% so surgery was my only route. Some may have noticed the my voice issues when watching #Sellingsunset and #flipping101 but on the road to recovery.”

Apparently, surgery was a last resort, as doctor’s first had Heather on bed and vocal rest for three months. That’s no fun. I was on bedrest for most of my pregnancies and it was no joke. Can’t even imagine not being allowed to talk the entire time. I wonder how that will play into Season 5? Flashcards anyone?

TELL US- DID YOU NOTICE ANYTHING WONKY ABOUT HEATHER’S VOICE ON SELLING SUNSET? DO YOU THINK SHE WILL BE ABLE TO TALK NEXT SEASON? WHEN DO YOU THINK SEASON 5 WILL BE RELEASED?
