Heather Dubrow has been questioning Brooks Ayers’ cancer diagnosis along with the other ladies on The Real Housewives of Orange County, but she hasn’t really spoken up in terms of her opinions. Maybe Dubrow wants to stay neutral and focus on other things, including keeping her friend, Vicki Gunvalson. And on this week’s episode, Tamra Barney was given a piece of paper that stated Brooks did indeed have cancer. But for many, that didn’t prove anything.
What is interesting is that Heather Dubrow is distancing herself from all of it. Heather could have shared her opinion in her blog for the episode, but she chose to focus on her own business venture instead. Since Dubrow is married to a doctor, she could have provided more insight and context to the document Tamra was shown. But sadly, Heather did no such thing for viewers.
According to a new Bravo report, Heather Dubrow chose to focus on her business ventures instead, talking about her experiences on live television. It is no secret that Heather has been working hard on a new business, and last night, Dubrow got her chance to go on live television to sell her new skincare product.
“Tamra calling in as ‘Cinnamon’ was really funny and I was touched by the support of my ‘sisters’. (Just for the record, Terry didn’t have a spray tan, the makeup artist turned him orange!!!),” Heather Dubrow writes in her blog, adding, “A special thank you to our AMAZING assistant, Natalie – she is the best ever and I love her dearly. I also want to thank my incredible husband for the sweet words he said to me after the EVINE show. Terry, I love you so much. We are partners forever. Not perfect, but perfect together.”
In her entire blog, Heather focuses on her business venture, and she doesn’t mention Vicki Gunvalson once. Maybe Vicki would appreciate this, but Heather is taking a stand here when it comes to viewers. Dubrow was present when the psychic called the cancer wishy washy. Dubrow could have offered a thought or two about the document that was shown during the episode. Instead, she decided to keep it light and upbeat.
“Live TV is really fun. I enjoy thinking on my feet and talking directly into the camera. Filming for a shopping channel is crazy though because there are no commercial breaks! Some of our shows that weekend were three hours long! Terry had never done live TV and even though I was confident in him he seemed so nervous and I didn’t want him to have any regrets,” Heather Dubrow revealed in her blog.
But when Andy Cohen decided to confront Heather on an episode of Watch What Happens Live, Dubrow did reveal that she found the “cancer proof” to be mysterious. Why? Well, why would Brooks Ayers chose to show Tamra Barney the document, given she has no medical background at all?
“I will say that I’m married to a doctor…Shannon [Beador] goes to lots of doctors, Meghan [Edmonds] has been in the medical field. I mean, choosing Tamra was an odd choice, or a specific choice,” Heather told Andy according to Radar Online, adding about the IV scene, “The doctor was a general physician, he wasn’t an oncologist. I think what the doctor said was, ‘I have this scan and unless it’s faked, you have [cancer].'”
It sounds like Heather doesn’t want to make any conclusions before seeing the document for herself. It is definitely interesting that Brooks chose to show the document to Tamra.
What do you think of Heather Dubrow using her blog to promote her business instead of address the major plot line?
