Heather Dubrow, who joined the cast of “The Real Housewives of Orange County” during its seventh season, announced Friday that she won’t be returning to the Bravo reality show for season 12.
“After a lot of careful thought and deliberation, I have decided not to return to RHOC this season,” Dubrow said in a statement that she released to the gossip site The Daily Dish. “These past 5 years have been an incredible journey and I’m so proud to have been a part of such an iconic piece of pop culture.”
Dubrow, an actress who starred in the CBS drama “That’s Life” and the NBC sitcom “Stark Raving Mad,” joined the cast of “Real Housewives of Orange County” in 2011. One episode from her first season featured the luxurious Newport Coast home she then shared with her husband, Dr. Terry Dubrow. They sold the home for $16.45 million in February 2013 and it was re-sold in December 2015 for $18.8 million.
