‘RHOC’ Heather Dubrow Looks Scary Skinny In Instagram Post, Legal Troubles To Blame For Skeletal Figure?

Four kids and 17 years of marriage hasn’t stopped Heather Dubrow from maintaining her youthful figure.

The Real Housewives of Orange County star recently shared a photo on Instagram that showed off her skinny frame. Are legal troubles the source of her weight loss?

“Found my wedding dress while unpacking! The waist was pretty tight after 4 kids … But it still fits! Happy Friday to me! Now, where can I wear this???? Haha! #heatherdubrowsworldlivetour maybe???” Heather wrote alongside the image.

According to Radar Online, Heather and her husband, Botched star Terry Dubrow, have experienced a difficult marriage.

Not only are Heather and Terry fighting over his responsibilities as a father, but they are also embroiled in an extortion lawsuit.

The lawsuit stems from a bad business deal with Steven Czik, an attorney based out of New York.

Radar Online reports that Heather and Terry paid Czik $1.7 million to start a lifestyle management company.

The couple then took Czik to court over the bad investment and won. A judge ordered Czik to pay them the settlement, but the money never materialized.

For his part, Czik sued the Dubrows and claimed they started an offensive email campaign that ruined his reputation.

In one of the emails Czik filed for the lawsuit, Terry told him: “BTW don’t even consider offering me a paltry settlement amount. I will absolutely have you f**king disbarred. If you don’t pay me what you owe me you will end up disbarred, publicly shamed an in every living room across the world known for what you did to me.”

Heather Dubrow also bashed Czik on her podcast.

According to Starcasm, Heather told fans that their accountant, Gary Hoffman, was also in on the fraud scheme.

Apparently, the Dubrows were flush with cash after selling their Orange County home for over $16 million.

“Our accountant knew that we had all this money sitting around so we were ripe for the picking,” Heather revealed. “We made an investment that was not good. I think Terry and I are relatively smart people… we f**ked up.”

Things got so bad that the Dubrows threatened to expose Czik on the Real Housewives of Orange County.

“I am ending you pathetic career. Prepare for big time television exposure,” Terry told him. “Once we expose you, you will in the short term lose INSTANTLY all your clients. That’s assuming you have any.”

That being said, Czik has since dropped his lawsuit without prejudice.

It isn’t clear what happened that convinced Czik to end his suit, but he still has the option to open it again in the future.

However, the Dubrows still have an open lawsuit against the other parties involved in the scam, including Hoffman and Jennifer Bell.

Bell is currently on the loose and the Dubrows are willing to pay $25,000 for her capture.

Are the ongoing lawsuits the reason Heather is so skinny?

On top of it all, Heather and her family just had to deal with an infestation of rodents at their dream home.

In fact, CBS 8 is reporting that Heather and her husband have poured in an untold amount of money to remodel the place. This includes installing a special light feature that even Heather admits was a little over the top.

“It’s kind of like a light sculpture, and it was a little risky, a little expensive… and there were some issues … some of these elements kept falling and crashing to the floor. So, they had to be sent back and experts had to fly out,” she stated.

According to Yahoo, Heather has avoided the Real Housewives curse of getting divorced, though that might change if things don’t improve soon.

For now, it isn’t known why Heather is still super skinny and whether or not the court battles have anything to do with her health.
