Update May 27, 2014.
Why is she so threatened by newcomer Shannon Beador? Shannon is too absurd to be much of an adversary. Shannon and her husband David are as wealthy as Heather, but so was Lydia McLaughlin. Is Heather afraid Shannon will take Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Barney from her? They seem gone anyway, as they claim to be tired of Heather’s condescension.
This is not new behavior from Heather.
Is this yet another case of the Second Season Syndrome?
The Real Housewives of Orange County franchise is supposed to be a superficial bunch of light, bubbly, overly botoxed fake boobed fake tanned money obsessed wannabe morons who live in an Orange Bubble That’s how we like them. Perhaps this is why Bravo TV didn’t cast Heather Dubrow when she first tried?
Perhaps the former D-list actress who has lived on her husbands’ dime (Plastic surgeon Dr.Terry Dubrow) until her first RHOC check last year should have done her homework on Lydia Stirling McLaughlin and Beverly Hills Lifestyle Magazine before mouthing off and showing her jealousy of Lisa Vanderpump ‘s cover shoot for the magazine.
From her Bravo blog:
I had never heard of Lydia’s magazine, however I didn’t look down my nose at it. My friend Kacey told me that the McLaughlin’s were good people. That’s why I took the meeting. Terry and I had no interest in having our house photographed for a magazine.
Yeah, we believe you Heather. She goes on to say:
We asked for the cover because we decided that it would help our local advertising. An inside story would just be a vanity piece that we didn’t need at the time. Also, Lisa Vanderpump from RHOBH had recently been on the cover. Sorry, Doug, I love Lisa, but she doesn’t match with your explanation of the cover being an international superstar.
It turns out Lydia is an heir to the Stirling publishing fortune, and Beverly Hills Lifestyle Magazine is sponsored by:
Villa Blanca (owned by, guess who?)
Not to mention the fact that the home the Dubrows wanted to grace the cover of the magazine was sold in December.
Old saying: Get in where you fit in.
Serve up the onion rings Heather. You’re in Orange County! And please, no more mechanical bulls!
The Real Housewives of Orange County airs Monday nights on Bravo TV.
