Heather Dubrow is in the hot seat for season 17 of the Real Housewives of Orange County.
On a recent episode of the Rick and Kelly Show, Kelly Dodd claimed that she received a message from former RHOC showrunner and producer Thomas Kelly, who gave Kelly some insight into the drama for season 17.
According to Thomas Kelly, he was told that Heather “gets her due this season.” Fancy Pants apparently gets a lot of heat this season from her c0stars.
Kelly then revealed that she messaged Vicki Gunvalson to get confirmation after receiving the scoop from her former producer. As we have previously reported, the OG of the OC is set to appear in several episodes during season 17.
“I text this to Vicki, and I said to Vicki, ‘What’s up, Thomas Kelly sent me this.’ And this was Vicki’s response to me, ‘Yeah, it’s very sad to me. Regardless if you like [Dubrow] or not. I saw it firsthand. And it makes me sick. You and I have both gone through it in the past. If I had her money, there is no way I would subject myself to that abuse,’” Kelly said.
Meanwhile, Tamra Judge and Gina Kirschenheiter also confirmed that Heather found herself in the hot seat during season 17 on a recent episode of Tamra’s podcast, Two T’s in a Pod.
“I think actually it’s been hard for Heather this year because I feel like she’s been trying to kind of find her place, figure it out, and I feel like it’s been a little tough,” Gina confessed.
“I mean, I can’t give it away, but sometimes people need to take accountability for their actions and their words and not blame other people,” Tamra added.
RHOC is set to return for season 17 in early 2023.
