Housewives — they’re just like us!

In Monday night’s all-new episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Heather Dubrow may have pulled the oldest trick in the book and allegedly answered a fake phone call to get out of a tough conversation. Fellow co-star Vicki Gunvalson was confident she knew what Heather was up to. “Heather, next time you answer a fake phone call, you’d better make sure that the screen lights up, because nobody was on the other line,” Vicki said, rolling her eyes.

The call was supposedly from Heather’s son, Nicky. Immediately upon answering the phone, Heather asked, “Are you okay? How’s your stomach? What are you feeling?” Heather then said, “I’m gonna put Daddy on the phone, okay?” Heather then passed the phone to her husband, Terry, who began to ask Nicky about his symptoms. The pair began to ask the other Housewives for the time, and made a hasty exit.

Despite Vicki’s accusations, Terry has sworn the call was legit. “Really,” Terry told RumorFix. “If you rewind the tape, you see the phone lights up — look at it.” That’s true, but it could just be Heather turning the phone on! “If we were going to tell a white lie — it would not be about our kid being ill. It’s bad karma,” Terry added. “And if you know us — you know that if we wanted to go, we would go!”

Terry seems pretty earnest, but we know one thing’s for sure: If Heather really was faking, then Terry is the greatest partner-in-crime we’ve ever seen. Next time we fake a phone call, we can only hope he’s there to back us up!

Do you think Heather faked that phone call? Have you ever had to fake a call before? Let us know in the comments!
