Whether she left because she didn’t want her multi-million dollar home filmed or she didn’t like being reduced to friend status if she didn’t, Heather Dubrow decided enough was enough and announced that she would not be returning to ‘The Real Housewives of Orange County’ for the upcoming season. She left on her own terms and husband Terry couldn’t be happier.
While they both have to admit it was a great experience, Terry said it caused a lot of stress in their home and marriage. It was evident on some of the episodes that the Dubrows were having a little marital discourse with their schedules, particularly his. Between his practice, speaking engagements, and filming of ‘Botched’, his hit show on E!, Terry wasn’t spending much time with his family. Remember the episode when the kids after performing at school, set out an empty chair for their dad at their celebration dinner? Despite Heather’s filming commitments, she always seemed to be able to put their children first and she wanted Terry to do the same.
Despite the conflict at home, they both were committed to their careers and their family. Terry even promised he would be at home more. The couple collaborated on a skin care line and wrote a children’s book. Things seemed to be improving at home.
Then along came Kelly Dodd and Heather’s sense of decorum took a major hit! Well, Dodd and that trip to hell, also known as Ireland.
In all of Heather’s five seasons, and despite disagreements with some of the other ladies-Shannon and her accusations of spreading rumors about Shannon’s troubled marriage and Vicki and Brooks’ false claims of cancer-Heather always retained her prim and proper stance, rightfully earning her nickname of ‘Miss Fancy Pants’. But she just couldn’t take Dodd and her antics and decided that it was time to declare, ‘been there, done that, bought the T-shirt, sent the postcard’.
Look for Heather, and maybe even Terry, to appear for parties because they are still friendly with some people associated with the show. And she still has her podcast, ‘Heather Dubrow’s World’. And, or course, watch Terry on ‘Botched!’.
