If you're like us, you've been waiting breathlessly to see Real Housewives of Orange County star Heather Dubrow knock 'em dead  or rather, get knocked dead, in this case  on Hawaii Five-O. Luckily, we won't have to wait much longer to see her appearance on the hit CBS cop drama!

Heather's acting career keeps heating up, and a little over a month ago, Heather headed to the island paradise to film a role on Hawaii Five-O. Her RHoOC pals even came to visit Heather in Hawaii after the episode wrapped.

Now, we've learned that Heather's Hawaii Five-O episode, which is entitled "Pukana," will air on December 20. It sounds like Christmas is coming early for all of us Heather fans!

So what role will Heather be playing on the show? We're not exactly sure just yet. But let's just say that you shouldn't be holding your breath for her character to get a spinoff, judging by this pic that shows Heather covered in fake blood on the show's set. Come to think of it, we're just glad that the only pain inflicted on RHoOC is of the emotional variety. 

Back in the early fall, Heather told Wetpaint Entertainment exclusively that she was excited for the role. "I’m still doing a lot of scripted work," she told us at the time. "I’m doing a part on Hawaii Five-O — I have to go to Hawaii in a couple weeks, which is fun."

We're thrilled to see Heather lend her talents to yet another show! And we're sure  if something unfortunate does happen to Heather's character  that Steve, Danno, Chin, and the gang will nab whoever's responsible.
