Was Heather Snubbed by Gretchen and Slade on Real Housewives of Orange County?
Heather Dubrow excitedly returns to the small screen with a guest appearance in Hot in Cleveland. But is someone trying to rain on her parade?
In Real Housewives of Orange County Season 8, Episode 8, husband Terry Dubrow and all of Heather’s RHOC co-stars show their support during a live taping of her guest role in Hot in Cleveland, but two people are noticeably missing from the audience.
“One of my favorite things to do when I’m on set is look up into the audience and see my peeps,” Heather explains to the camera. “It’s pretty obvious that there are two empty seats that are reserved for Gretchen and Slade.”
Indeed, Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley are nowhere to be seen. But that didn’t stop Heather Dubrow from giving a stellar performance opposite Hot in Cleveland star Wendy Malick.
“Heather is rocking it,” Lydia McLaughlin says while observing Heather’s taping. “She plays her part to a tee.”
“It’s really cool to be able to do what you love to do and get paid for it, right?” Vicki Gunvalson says to Terry. “She obviously is a natural here.”
Tamra Barney confesses to Googling some of Heather’s older shows and is obviously impressed.
“She’s so perfect and she’s got everything in order, and she will be just as fancy up there on that stage as she is when we were having drinks,” Tamra tells the camera.
Gretchen and Slade eventually make it, but not without some lip from Tamra.
"This isn't the Gretchen and Slade show," she gripes to the cameras.
