Will she make a comeback or what? Even though Heather Dubrow left The Real Housewives of Orange County in 2017, she still thinks about the reality show. The brunette beauty exclusively sat down with Life & Style to discuss whether we’ll see her on Bravo again or not.
“I say, never say never,” the New York native, 50, revealed to us. “I miss being with the girls, I miss taking those trips, I miss laughing with them. You form bonds and friendships when you work so closely with people, so I do miss that.”
The TV personality admitted that she had never been on a girls trip until she joined Housewives. “That just wasn’t my thing,” she confessed. “I didn’t [even] have a bachelorette party.”
Heather doesn’t keep in contact with many of the women, but she and her husband, Dr. Terry Dubrow, do enjoy seeing them out and about once in a while. “We just ran into Vicki Gunvalson, I see Alexis Bellino all the time, we saw Shannon Beador last spring. You run into people,” she said. “To me, it’s sorority sisters. It’s a really nice community.”
Meanwhile, Terry, 60, thought that being on the show was “absurdly amusing” and would “stand at the parties off camera and watch.”
However, the couple — who have been married for almost 20 years — confessed that even though they survived the reality star curse, they still had to work through tough times while filming. “There was a season, I think it was the third season on the show, and we were fighting,” the mom-of-four said. “We were fighting about being on the show. I hated it and he loved it. He thought it was no big deal because he was a doctor. To him, it was pure fun.”
So, how did the duo get through it? “We sat down one day and said, ‘This isn’t good for our marriage, so either we have to figure this out or we’re getting off the show because I am not losing my marriage to be on a reality show,’” she dished. “We had a little come to Jesus moment and we figured out how to get through. But I think we both took a step back. I think I relaxed a little bit, I think he stopped teasing me so much. We got to a much better spot.”
Now, Terry is having fun on his hit show, Botched. “It’s real and authentic and so much heart because they come in and they have been destroyed and great surgeons all over the world and the country try to fix it, haven’t been able to fix it. You’re it, you’re their last hope,” he said. “When you can deliver that life-changing thing, it’s pretty amazing.”
The That’s Life alum loves that her hubby found something he is so passionate about. “Watching him, he found his purpose,” she said. “Now, he can take all of his skills and help people. His whole mission in life is not to have plastic surgery!”
The California native also doesn’t mind watching himself on TV once in a while. “There might be a Botched marathon moment on Sunday where I get in bed, then I crack up, then I see if my kids or anybody are listening. If they hear me laugh, they say, ‘Watching Botched!’” he joked.
We hope that these two will be on our TV screens for a long time!
