Heather Dubrow has long been gone from Real Housewives of Orange County but that hasn’t slowed her down from being featured on TV and other media platforms. She has long been hawking her Consult Beaute skincare line with husband Terry Dubrow on a home shopping network. Heather also has a podcast (presumably about being a fancy rich lady) and has written two books with Terry, The Dubrow Diet and The Dubrow Keto Fusion Diet. She even appeared on an episode of Terry’s hit show Botched. If you’re on social media, you also might know that Heather has taken to YouTube to welcome us into her house, her closet and even her laundry room.
In short, what aren’t they doing? Clearly, Heather and Terry are finding a way to keep busy after RHOC. They parlayed their rich and opulent personas (Champs! The nickname Fancy Pants!) into a whole empire. I do use the term empire loosely but what else would you call all of the above? Heather and Terry are busy to say the least.
The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 14 reunion episodes were cringe-worthy, to say the least. Vicki Gunvalson yelling “this is my show,” when she wasn’t even a full-time cast member and she had nothing to do with the show’s development back in the day, was just so humiliating and embarrassing.
Vicki claimed that she would never return to RHOC unless she was a full-time cast member again. Well, it’s unclear if Vicki got another low ball offer and actually walked away or if she was just straight up fired, but she’s gone and it’s clear someone was tired of her antics. Vicki announced her departure from the show via Instagram before Season 15 filming started up. Before Vicki’s humiliating final moments on the show, she was doing what she could to restore the show to its former glory. Allegedly, she asked Heather Dubrow to return to “her” show following Season 13.
The upcoming Season 15 of Real Housewives of Orange County is going to be very different. Gone are two of the tres amigas. Last season, the “OG of the OC,” Vicki Gunvalson, was demoted to be a Friend of the Housewives. After having a melt-down during the reunion, she quit after she learned that she would not be getting her orange back. But don’t worry–Vicki is getting her own podcast.
Tamra Judge also walked away after she was only offered three episodes to complete her storyline. That is less than a demotion. Ouch! Now there is only one amiga left–Shannon Beador. And if Shannon returns, it looks like she will be spending a lot of time with Kelly Dodd.
No love lost here. Real Housewives of Orange County’s Kelly Dodd doesn’t seem sad that two of the tres amigas are no longer filming. Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge will not return to the franchise when filming resumes.
This has left many fans wondering how Kelly will handle having Shannon Beador, aka the last amiga, around. And I think it’s fair to say Kelly doesn’t seem the least bit worried.
Tamra Judge may declared herself the “hottest Housewife in Housewife in Orange County” when she joined The Real Housewives of Orange County way back in Season 3, but could she be the darkest one too?
In a new interview, the reigning queen bee of RHOC (sorry, Vicki Gunvalson) looked back on how the show has changed over the last 12 years, and opened up about her impact on the direction of the franchise in its earliest days.
Even though Tamra Judge and Kelly Dodd are constantly at odds, the Real Housewives of Orange County stars do have one habit in common. No, I’m not referring to their tendency to go for the jugular mid-argument. I’m actually talking about their shared habit of tweeting and deleting scathing remarks.
Thankfully, screenshots exist. Hopefully, Kelly plans to continue those anger management sessions because she went too far in response to Tamra hating on her hairline.
We’ve got another case of “she said, she said,” folks. Real Housewives of Orange County alum Heather Dubrow’s assistant Natalie Puche accused Heather of firing her when she started maternity leave. If that’s the case, then damn, that’s colder than those hexagonal-shaped ice cubes in Heather’s freezer.
Obviously, Heather denies the claims. And, of course, Natalie deleted all of her social media posts bashing Heather. However, screenshots and receipts live on forever.
It is hard to believe that it has been three years since Heather Dubrow was a Housewife. The former Real Housewives of Orange County star left the show after five seasons. It is difficult to imagine Heather having any interest in the current casts’ lawsuits, sleazy sex talk, drunk driving charges, bitter divorces and general debauchery. What would Heather think? I bet there would be a lot of “Oh dears” coming from her mouth! And how would she perceive crass Gina Kirschenheiter or needy over-sharer Braunwyn Windham Burke?
Heather gave us many memorable moments on the show–from throwing Shannon Beador out of her house to having a melt-down when the perfect cake at her party was defiled by a guest. Since leaving RHOC, Heather has been focusing on a number of ventures, including co-authoring several books with husband Terry Dubrow. Heather has also hosted her own podcast Heather Dubrow’s World and the fashion-oriented Heather’s Closet on YouTube. Most notably, she has continued her skin care line with Terry, Consult Beaute. Now, Heather is ready to conquer the fashion world.
