Terry Dubrow

Heather Dubrow

The last season of Real Housewives of Orange County came off as a big ole flop. There was no Tamra Judge, the thirstiness of Braunwyn Windham-Burke and finally, they filmed it all during the pandemic. Aside from a few attempts at fighting here and there, nothing really happened that was notable. It wasn’t until the reunion, when Braunwyn admitted that she offered up a drug dealer to castmate Shannon Beador’s underage child, that any sort of bombshell took place.

But despite the lack of bombshells, one person just couldn’t keep her nose clean. Obviously I’m talking about Kelly Dodd. Going into the season, she was riddling social media with inflammatory thoughts on the coronavirus. And she continued throughout filming, despite trying to get a good edit of being a doting fiancé to Rick Leventhal. It didn’t work and fans hated her more than ever.

Braunwyn Windham-Burke Real Housewives Of Orange County

Well, when Bravo promised some changes on Real Housewives of Orange County, they weren’t kidding around. Elizabeth Lyn Vargas was let go, as was the divisive Kelly Dodd.  And Braunwyn Windham-Burke was also fired after two seasons on RHOC.

And to everyone’s surprise (and my delight) “Fancy Pants” Heather Dubrow is returning for Season 16. Her plastic surgeon husband, DrTerry Dubrow, said earlier this month that his wife has a “never say never” attitude, and that he missed being on RHOC. I cannot wait to see the interior of the $21 million dollar home that the couple built in Newport Beach. It happens to be the most expensive Housewives home.

Heather Clashes With Alexis

It’s time to pop the champs, Real Housewives of Orange County fans — Fancy Pants Heather Dubrow is back. And to Vicki Gunvalson’s glee, she’s on a mission to Make OC Classy Again, whatever that means. Not only is Heather in, but Braunwyn Windham-Burke and Kelly Dodd are out with their messiness. Heather was one of the first Real Housewives to call out Kelly for her bad behavior during her first season on the show, so she’s a good judge of character. Plus, Fancy Pants gets that Housewives’ is a sport and needs to be tackled as such. And she’s actually filthy rich, which always makes for fun TV, especially when it’s earned AUTHENTICALLY (hear that, Erika Jayne?)

Heather announced her triumphant return on her podcast Heather Dubrow’s Worldwhere Bravo daddy Andy Cohen was the guest. The two talked about her return as well as teased another old school housewife from another city making a similar return sometime soon. And even though Terry Dubrow tried to persuade fans that his wife wouldn’t make a return, thank the Bravo gods he was wrong.

The Bravo gods have answered our (my) prayers — Heather Dubrow is returning to the Real Housewives of Orange County. The news of Fancy Pant’s long-awaited return comes along with some arguably even better news — Kelly Dodd and Braunwyn Windham-Burke are OUT for good. No more Kelly Fraud’s nasty comments and total ignorance. Or Braunwyn’s over-the-top narcissism. Both ladies were eyeing for a return, but the fans have spoken. And Boringwin really uprooted her entire life as she knew it for a TV show that doesn’t want her back. What a shame. Oh, and Elizabeth Lyn Vargas is out after one season, but we hardly got to know her anyway.

The Fancy Pants news is just too much to bear. We’ll finally see the completed Dubrow family mansion. Terry Dubrow, despite duping fans about Heather’s return, will be back on our screens to provide plastic surgery advice and corny dad jokes. And this could lead to a potential Tamra Judge return, but no news has been announced yet. CHAMPS FOR EVERYONE, except maybe Shannon Beador.

Heather Wears Gloves Near Strippers

The Real Housewives of Orange County has strayed far away from the good old days of naked wasted bar dancing and the Brooks Ayers cancer scam. Season 15 just went to a whole new level of nasty, mostly thanks to Kelly Dodd’s tone-deaf comments and Braunwyn Windham-Burke’s over-the-top narcissism life. I think many fans had to reckon with the idea that the show truly isn’t the same without Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson, despite their messy characteristics. And it’s no wonder that Bravo is going to take its time before figuring out a direction for Season 16.

One of the Real Housewives I miss the most from any city has to be Fancy Pants Heather Dubrow. She brought fabulosity and class to the show, always with a glass of champs in her hand. She and Terry Dubrow are a reality TV power couple that know how to make good TV. They really seem like kind and down-to-earth people with an adorable family in their ultra-glamorous mansion. But all of the diamonds and Veuve Clicquot never stopped Heather from speaking her mind on the show. And let’s not forget, she’s a good judge of character. She was one of the first people to call out Kelly’s toxicity on camera after she called Shannon Beador the c-word many seasons ago.

Heather DuBrow Questions Jen Shah For Going On Reality TV IF She Was Running A Scam

You don’t have to be a member of the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City or a celebrity in general to question what Jen Shah was doing on reality TV.  As per official court documents, Jen was accused of running a nationwide telemarketing fraud scheme.  Was she aware of her involvement in alleged illegal dealings? It’s necessary to note that nothing has been proven at this time, and Jen pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Jen either unwittingly put herself in a more precarious situation, or some level of narcissism had her feeling invincible.  Either way, everyone in the Real Housewives circuit has an opinion, and some alums are coming out of the wood-work to share theirs.

Lisa Vanderpump Lands A Talk Show

Gone but not forgotten. Lisa Vanderpump has managed to remain semi-relevant since her exit from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. It’s doubly impressive since her other show, Vanderpump Rules is also in need of some serious revival. While Lisa would have you think everything is going well, viewers have other ideas.

Either way, Lisa’s faithful followers were overjoyed  in July when news broke she had snagged a new show surrounding her Vanderpump Dogs rescue. Fans had to hold on tight, though, since some people didn’t share that die-hard loyalty to LVP. There’s still a few theories that puppy-gate was just a launching pad for Ken Todd and Lisa to start yet another venture. Deep breaths everyone.

Terry Dubrow

Dr. Terry Dubrow was able to parlay his plastic surgery expertise and his Real Housewives of Orange County screen time to get his own show with Dr. Paul Nassif, Botched.

Now, a patient is claiming that Terry botched her procedure and the whole situation is just so complicated. Let’s try to break it down.
