PART 2 with Heather Dubrow
ME: Fave junk food treat
HEATHER: Twizzlers (We both agreed Twizzlers beat out Red Vines hands down. We even chatted about biting off the ends of the Twizzlers and using them as straws. You know youâ€™ve done it too.)
ME: All time fave movie
HEATHER: Thereâ€™s so many. Aside from all the major classics like â€œThe Wizard of Ozâ€. â€œFlashdanceâ€, â€œIce Castlesâ€ any of those girlie, young performance, dance, ice skating, singing type of films.
ME: Fave musical theater song because I know you sing. I was actually a theater major in college.
HEATHER: Really? Where did you go?
ME: I went to Rider in New Jersey. (We chatted briefly about how I ended up not pursuing anything with my theatre degree.)
HEATHER: This is hard.
ME: Ok if you had to go into an audition tomorrow and sing something what would it be?
HEATHER: Trying to think of my old audition songs. I do love â€œI Donâ€™t Know How To Love Himâ€ from Jesus Christ Superstar.
ME: Thatâ€™s a good one.
HEATHER: Iâ€™d probably audition with something from Les Mis.
ME: I love Les Mis too.
ME: Fave store or brand
HEATHER: I always say Chanel because I love Chanel. But I feel their prices are so out of control right now Iâ€™m almost turned off. Iâ€™m going to say Valentino.
ME: Fave magazine
HEATHER: I like a bunch of them. Iâ€™m gonna say Vogue.
ME: Do you do your own social media?
ME: What social media site do you love the most? Twitter maybe?
HEATHER: I do like Twitter. I donâ€™t understand Facebook at all. (We then chatted about different media platforms and different sites to help manage accounts.)
HEATHER: The word bullying. Are you on Twitter? Do you follow me on Twitter?
ME: I do!
HEATHER: So youâ€™ve seen all the bullying talk with Alexis because of what happened in Costa Rica. How do you feel about that?
ME: I think sheâ€™s ridiculous.
HEATHER: Ok good, ok so you understand. This is what I have to say about it. It is so not appropriate in this context; itâ€™s not applicable in this context to use the word bullying. Thatâ€™s an incredibly serious statement. Itâ€™s a serious issue and to make light of it like that I just think itâ€™s crazy. We are all cognizant that we are on the show to show our relationships and be vocal about our opinions of the other cast members. If you have filters, you have to take those filters out. This is what the show is about. Itâ€™s allowing the audience to get into our brain and say what they want to say and hear what they want to hear. The realness of it. This is Alexisâ€™s 3rd season, sheâ€™s very aware. Sheâ€™s very aware of how it works. I think itâ€™s really easy when things get turned on you and it makes you uncomfortable and it hits too close to home to run to your corner and cry victim. But I donâ€™t think itâ€™s fair and I think itâ€™s an easy out.
ME: I agree.
HEATHER: She and I had gone back and forth and back and forth on Twitter. Iâ€™m tired of the name calling and whatever. I actually have no ill feelings towards her. We had some very nice times together. I think it’s unfortunate how things happen. We had a really nice conversation after the reunion in the parking lot. We hugged and sort of apologized to each other for the misconceptions and some issues and whatever. We hugged. We texted each other. So I thought, ok great, maybe not best friends but we can accept each other. But then 2 days later she gave a really rude interview about me in the press and I thought ok well there you go.
ME: I think sheâ€™s just unhappy with herself and thatâ€™s the big problem.
HEATHER: Yea know what you could be right. As far as Iâ€™m concerned, her chapterâ€™s closed. I wish her and her family well. I have no ill feelings towards them. Â Sheâ€™s not a bad person. I hope sheâ€™s happy in her life.
