Don’t f—okay with “Fancy Pants.”
Wednesday night time’s episode of “The Real Housewives of Orange County” noticed Heather Dubrow threaten to stop filming after she was made conscious of Nicole James’ lawsuit in opposition to husband Dr. Terry Dubrow.
“Literally, we are camera down,” Heather, 52, mentioned as she put her hand in entrance of a digital camera operator’s lens.
The Bravolebrity — who returned to “RHOC” this season after a five-year hiatus — then instructed the crew member to flip their digital camera away from her as she absorbed the stunning information.
“Camera that way,” she mentioned, seemingly shifting the digital camera herself. “You’re fine.”
Walking up one of many many staircases at her palatial Newport Beach house, the previous cleaning soap actress — who was internet hosting a Nobu-catered social gathering — declared to her partner, “Terry, I’m leaving the show right now.”
She added, “Kicking everyone out of my house. It’s over right now.”
Earlier within the night time, Gina Kirschenheiter instructed Heather that Shannon Beador — Heather’s longtime frenemy — unfold gossip that “friend of the Housewives” James sued Terry, a famed plastic surgeon, for a “botched boob job” years in the past.
Beador, 57, interrupted Kirschenheiter’s dialog with Heather and tried to defend herself.
“I have to talk to you Heather. I don’t want to hurt anybody in this world,” she mentioned. “And when you kept telling me that Nicole was your friend, I said, ‘I think I know her, but it can’t be that girl.’”
Beador elaborated, “Because the Nicole that I knew told me that she was in a lawsuit with Terry, so that doesn’t make sense to me that they would be friends.”
A stone-cold Heather merely replied, “Are you really doing this right now?”
Beador and Kirschenheiter argued for a bit earlier than a silent Heather exited the scene.
Following her menace to stop filming, Heather finally returned with Terry, 63, to confront James — who beforehand glided by the identify Nicole Weise — concerning the scenario.
“Are you Nicole Weise?” Terry requested. “You sued me!”
A remorseful James instructed Terry that she doesn’t assume he “did anything wrong.” She famous that she was in her 20s on the time of the lawsuit and claimed that she was “pushed by attorneys” to file it. James later dropped it.
“I never wanted to say anything,” she mentioned.
Terry, who acknowledged that James suffered “complications” after her breast augmentation, mentioned he has moved on from the authorized mess.
“You dropped it, it went away,” he instructed James, who was in tears. “It’s fine, OK?”
Though she was perplexed that James had by no means talked about the lawsuit all through their six-year friendship, Heather mentioned she has forgiven her pal.
“Doctors get sued. It’s not a big deal. It was years and years ago,” she mentioned in a confessional. “Nicole’s our friend. She’s allowed to have a fresh start. We all are.”
It wasn’t lengthy, although, earlier than Heather gave Beador and Kirschenheiter a dressing-down for creating battle at her fête.
“Here’s what I’m going to tell you, Gina,” she instructed Kirschenheiter first. “Shoot the f—king messenger — because if it doesn’t exist in my world, I don’t know about it.”
Heather then turned to Beador, saying, “[Gina only knows] because you told her. And I honestly think it’s s–t that you did this. You shouldn’t have said anything.”
By the top of the episode, Heather met up with Gina and Emily Simpson to clear the air.
After hashing it out and apologizing for his or her respective roles within the ruckus on the Dubrow residence, the trio got here to the conclusion that it was Beador who stirred the pot.
Heather quipped, “A leopard doesn’t change their spots.”
“The Real Housewives of Orange County” airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
