The past season of The Real Housewives of Orange County introduced us to Heather Dubrow – a former actress turned stay-at-home mom in a gorgeous home in the OC! Heather became a fan favorite and instantly became part of the fabric on the series. She is opening up about her experience being on the show, her relationships with the ladies, and hints that Alexis Bellino may not have quit as she previously stated.
Heather sat down with The Stir and discussed that her goals were to remain herself and keep her sanity through all the drama of the show, and she feels like she succeeded. She reiterates that she was shocked to learn that she actually did like all the women when she met them. She has formed friendships with Tamra, Gretchen, and Vicki, but remains on the fence about Alexis who has since left the show. Heather says, “I had thought Alexis and I were good. We had made up on the girls trip to Costa Rica, so I was surprised at her attitude towards me. I thought we were good before my party. Even afterwards, she texted me saying thanks for the party, nice seeing you guys. Then all of the sudden she wasn’t speaking to me and I didn’t get it. But after the reunion, we had a terrific talk in the parking lot. We apologized to each for some misconceptions and misunderstandings, for feelings that were hurt for many reasons. We had a really nice moment. Then two days later, she gave some nasty interviews about me to the press. I thought, how many times can she pinch me and run away. I think its time to close the door. I don’t think she is a bad person, but she is not the kind of friend I want in my life. I just don’t trust her.”
Heather and Alexis won’t have to deal with that back-and-forth any further because Alexis has announced she won’t be back on the show, although Heather would have liked for her to return. “I know a bit about the real circumstances under which she is leaving and it’s not how she’s portraying it to the press. I will tell you this much, I think she should come back but I’m not really sure it was her choice,” said Heather. Oop! Tamra also tweeted when the news broke out, that she doubted Alexis would leave a popular TV show. Do you think that Alexis was asked to leave? Or has she been putting up a front and lying to the media about making the decision for herself?
There are rumors that Vicki may also leave the show, and Heather says she would like her to return because she is very fond of Vicki. She regrets calling Alexis dumb on TV and is also glad that the ladies got to know her and put their assumptions about her behind them.
I think Heather brings a perfect mix of class and wealth to the show, but also brings just the right amount of drama and attitude that we like to see on these Housewives shows. Are you looking forward to seeing Heather on RHOC again?
