"As you could see, Gretchen and Slade were very late," Heather writes in her Bravo blog about Gretchen attending the TV taping. "I didn't notice until about an hour after the show started."
"I was pretty sad to hear they were completely unapologetic, and there was no excuse why they were late either to Terry when they arrived or to myself later," Heather continues. "All the girls (as well as Terry) told me later that Gretchen and Slade were up from their seats several times during the evening and missed a number of my scenes."
Heather says she has made a point to attend Gretchen's career-related events, so she would have expected the same from her.
"I have always been a supporter of Gretchen and Slade's and their many career paths," she explains. "Last year, I left my children for three days to see Gretchen perform in Las Vegas. I was happy to be there and I can promise you my phone was shut in my purse. I deserved the same support and friendship."
"I decided this was not the time to discuss this issue with Gretchen," Heather adds. "I was on a high after the taping of the show ended and didn't want to spend my evening being annoyed."
But one person that did come through in a big way for Heather was her husband, Terry.
"Terry's toast was so sweet and meant so much to me," she says. "He really came through with everything he promised and allowed me to have my moment."
"Hitting the 'pause' button on our recent issues was definitely the right idea," she adds.
We're glad the drama with Gretchen didn't prevent Heather from enjoying her moment!
