Real Housewives of Orange County star Heather Dubrow has been on good terms with Gretchen Rossi since entering the show last season but all has changed. Heather took to her blog to talk about the reunion, the ladies and added that she does miss Gretchen revealing that things have been awkward between the two.
“I felt differently this year at the reunion. No longer the “new girl” I have now formed real relationships with these women and am invested in them.
Vicki: It was so difficult to see how hurt and sad she was by everything that transpired with Brooks. I meant what I said though, Vicki is a strong smart woman and she will get through this and find someone appropriate to love.
Alexis: I’m so glad Alexis and I are in a good place. We are both loving moms and wives and it’s nice to see her and share a hug and a laugh.
Tamra: Tamra has come so far this year. I’m so proud of her for facing her past. I truly believe that will help open her future. She opened a successful business and got married ! It was a big year for her and I am so happy for Tamra , Eddie & the kids.
Lydia: I really like Lydia, I think she’s been a fun addition to the group. As for the whole “magazine cover” debate. It was OK for me to ask, and it was ok for her to say no. End of story. Lydia and I are friends and (thankfully) I never had to pop a vein!
Gretchen: I miss Gretchen. Things have been awkward since the reunion, even though we had dinner after the filming.
I want to say that my comment about feeling “hollow” after watching her engagement was about none of the girls being at the party, not about the actual engagement. I thought Gretchen did a great job and it was a very sweet moment on the rooftop.
Even though Terry and I were sad to not be included in Gretchen and Slade’s special day — we still celebrated with them. Terry and I took them out to dinner and bought them an engagement gift.
Friendships are relationships. They have ebbs and flows. However, when life gives someone a “moment” — good or bad — you rally around your friends. I loved watching everyone support Vicki when she needed it at the reunion. Helping her through a difficult time. I also know you will love watching Tamra’s wedding and see how (after a bit of drama) all the ladies come together, put aside our petty differences and support Tamra on her special day. It’s really beautiful to watch and a testament to the nature of real friends. Be sure to watch Tamra’s OC Wedding starting September 2nd on BRAVO!”
It’s obvious Heather and Gretchen won’t speak anytime soon until they are forced to meaning until RHOC begins filming it’s ninth season. Until then, I see these two going back to the way it was. Thoughts on what Heather had to say? Are you surprised that she was so positive?
