Heather Dubrow is staying mum on the recent release of the trailer for the 12th season of The Real Housewives of Orange County.
With fans’ excitement in full swing, Heather Dubrow has remained active on her Twitter and Instagram pages, but unfortunately for many curious fans, she hasn’t said a thing about the new season of the Bravo reality show. Instead, she’s been posting all about her wedding anniversary.
On June 8, after posting several photos of herself and Dr. Terry Dubrow on vacation with two other couples, Heather Dubrow shared a throwback photo from their 1999 wedding.
“#tbt Keeping with the #anniversary theme! #weddingdress @verawanggang 6/5/99 Love you @drdubrow,” Heather Dubrow wrote in the caption of her throwback photo on Thursday.
On her actual anniversary, Heather Dubrow wished her husband a happy anniversary on Instagram with a message that read, “Happy 18th wedding Anniversary @drdubrow! I love you more today than yesterday, but not as much as tomorrow #honeymoon #italy #whyarewematching #khakis #anniversary.”
Heather Dubrow also shared a photo for her honeymoon in Italy with Dr. Dubrow, who stars alongside Dr. Paul Nassif on the E! Network reality series Botched. As fans of the Real Housewives franchise will recall, Dr. Nassif appeared on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills years ago when he was married to Adrienne Maloof.
Heather Dubrow joined The Real Housewives of Orange County during the show’s seventh season and continued to appear on the series in a full-time role until January of this year when she announced she would not be featured during the show’s 12th season.
Heather Dubrow first confirmed the news of her exit on her podcast series, Heather Dubrow World.
“If you’re wondering why I’ve decided to not come back, it wasn’t an easy decision,” Heather Dubrow explained, according to a report by Entertainment Tonight. “You know, it’s hard to walk away from something, first of all, that’s been successful for five years, and truly has given us so much. But I just feel like, right at this particular point in time, a couple of things [changed my mind].”
“First of all, my kids,” she continued. “My oldest kids are now teenagers, and I just felt like they need to make their own decision about being on television and exposing their lives, and for me personally, I have some really cool, interesting opportunities that I want to explore. I don’t know where they’re going to go, but I want the opportunity to explore them.”
During the 11th season of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Heather Dubrow butted heads with new addition Kelly Dodd and expressed her shock in the new addition’s foul mouth and questionable behavior.
“I felt like I was at a tipping point, and just… it was time,” she said. “But, it’s all positive and I wish them all the best.”
Along with Kelly Dodd, Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Judge, Shannon Beador, Meghan King Edmonds, and Lydia McLaughlin are returning to The Real Housewives of Orange County for Season 12.
As for Heather Dubrow’s replacement, Bravo TV has brought Peggy Sulahian to the show for Season 12 as a friend of Lydia McLaughlin, who returns to the show after taking a few seasons off. As fans will recall, McLaughlin joined the reality cast during its eighth season but left the series after the season came to an end.
The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 12 premieres on Monday, July 10, at 9 p.m. on Bravo TV. Check out the just-released trailer below.
