'Real Housewives of Orange County': 15 Minute Preview, Meet Heather Dubrow (Video)
There are several differences right up front on the seventh season of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Orange County. And the network is giving viewers a 15 minute extended preview of Tuesday’s premiere episode.
Once again, they’re trying out a new brunette: Actress Heather Dubrow. Listed as Heather Paige Kent on IMDB, her last major role was on the CBS dramedy, That’s Life, from 2000-2002. Now, she’s a stay-at-home mom of four who is married to a Newport Beach plastic surgeon, Terry Dubrow.
Other things going down this season include:
Vicki Gunvalson continues her divorce from Donn. Plus, she’s putting her house up for sale, and she’s already dating again.
Tamra Barney and Gretchen Rossi try to bury the hatchet and begin a blossoming friendship. But, their relationships with Vicki, Slade, and Alexis Bellino will experience turbulence as a result. Meanwhile, Tamra takes her relationship with boyfriend Eddie to the next level. Plus, Gretchen takes the stage as a singer and dancer with the Pussycat Dolls in Las Vegas.
Alexis also becomes a bit more independent from her husband Jim when she gets a job as a correspondent with a local morning news show. She also continues to run her dress line business, but finds it difficult to manage it all and run the household.
Watch how Heather fits into the Housewives puzzle in a preview video below and visit BravoTV.com for a 15-minute preview from the premiere episode airing Tuesday at 9 p.m.
