Although Tamra Judge and Heather Dubrow haven’t been seen together recently, Judge made a point to wish her former co-star a happy birthday this past January, just weeks before Dubrow announced she would no longer be a part of The Real Housewives of Orange County.

After five seasons on the show, Heather Dubrow revealed she had quit her Bravo role to listeners of her Podcast series, Heather Dubrow World, earlier this year. At the time, she cited her family, including her husband Dr. Terry Dubrow and their four kids, and her career as the motivation behind her decision.

“If you’re wondering why I’ve decided to not come back, it wasn’t an easy decision,” Heather Dubrow explained, via 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… 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.”

“I felt like I was at a tipping point, and just… it was time,” she added. “But, it’s all positive and I wish them all the best.”
