After a five-year hiatus, Heather Dubrow, 53, returned to The Real Housewives of Orange County for the show’s sixteenth season. During the filming of Season 16, Dubrow became close to her co-star Gina Kirschenheiter, 37.
During an April 2022 episode of her Heather Dubrow’s World podcast, the mother-of-four shared her thoughts on fans struggling with her friendship with Kirschenheiter.
During taping of the April 22 episode of “Heather Dubrow’s World,” Dubrow shared that she wasn’t bothered by “RHOC” viewers who are unhappy with their cherry cheer dynamic.
“When I see the comments about mine and Gina’s friendship, some say I love it and some say I don’t love it, or it doesn’t sound true, she’s just on Heather’s ass. However. When I met her, I just liked her. I wanted to hug her. Wanted to have a laugh with her and I guess I always supported her. That’s what drew me to her,” said the 7 Year Stitch host.
Dubrow’s podcast co-host Jefferson then shared that he disagreed with the criticism her friendship with Kirschenheiter had received.
“You can have friends who have more than you and who impress you. It’s okay that Gina looks up to you,” Jefferson said.
Dubrow agreed, stating that she has a diverse group of friends.
“I think it’s important to have friends who are younger than you, older than you, different walks of life, different ethnicities, different socioeconomic backgrounds, all different because why would you want to be with people who are all exactly the same ‘ said Dubrow. “First of all, it’s incredibly boring. And secondly, I love to learn and as much as I can be a big sister to Gina, I’ve also learned a lot from her and I get so much from her and this friendship.”
While Dubrow and Kirschenheiter grew closer in season 16, the 37-year-old didn’t get along with all of her castmates. For example, she had issues with Shannon Beador after realizing she was declaring she was selfish. The “RHOC” stars appeared to reconcile during the show’s season 16 finale. But during one April 2022 episode of RHOC After Show Beador indicated that she was still unhappy with Kirschenheiter.
“The conversation had to happen but you know there’s Gina once again raising her voice and shaking, god she just gets so angry talking to me,” said the 58-year-old. “You know the bottom line is I wish her well but it is what it is, Gina is Gina and I’ve learned a lesson that every time I think things can change or get better and that we can.” can actually have a deeper relationship relationship, something happens and that’s okay. I don’t really have time to accommodate any more real close friends.”
She made it clear that she was willing to spend time with Kirschenheiter despite her problems.
“I can get along with people who aren’t my favorite, so that’s what it is,” Beador said.
