Things haven’t been going great this season of The Real Housewives of Orange County for Heather Dubrow. She’s been accused of being condescending and controlling — and then there was “Chairgate,” aka the weirdest, drunkest game of musical chairs to ever grace our screens. (Obviously, we loved every second of it.) Finally, someone’s sticking up for poor Heather, though not the person you’d expect!

Gretchen Rossi offered her sympathies to Heather on Twitter this week, after a fan pointed out the similarities between the two women. “@HeatherDubrow is @GretchenRossi this season. Why does Tamra and Vicki have to be so mean [sic]. #RHOC #MeanGirls,” a Twitter user wrote. In response, Gretchen tweeted back, “I haven't seen it, but if so I feel bad for her.”

Gretchen had a rough final season with RHOC. After being deemed “too boring” by producers (Another feud with Tamra Barney? Yawn!), Gretchen got the boot, along with co-star Alexis Bellino. What we’re hoping for is a triumphant return — and a friendship with Heather. We can imagine the two ladies teaming up and taking the OC by storm! At the very least, Heather should look into grabbing a drink with Gretchen, who might be able to give her some advice, so long as Gretch doesn’t try to sit in the middle seat.

Is Heather really the new Gretchen? Would you like to see Gretchen come back to RHOC? Sound off in the comments!

The Real Housewives of Orange County airs Monday nights at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
