She’s not exactly flipping out.
“Real Housewives of Orange County” star Heather Dubrow responded to disparaging comments that Jeff Lewis made about her during a December 2021 appearance on “Watch What Happens Live.” The former “Flipping Out” star slammed Dubrow as not a “good person.”
“You know, Jeff seems to have a lot of hate in his heart,” Dubrow said about his comments during a January 4 appearance on PeopleTV’s Reality Check. “You know, in order to have a feud you really need two people to participate. I have no interest in participating in anything like that. But I will say about the comments — consider the source.”
The Daily Mail reported on Lewis and Dubrow’s feud as early as 2016. According to the outlet, Lewis accused Dubrow of “acting rudely to wait staff at Shannon Beador’s birthday party,” and Dubrow countered that Lewis made “disgusting” comments to her and her husband, Terry Dubrow, “shaming me about the size of my breasts, and what I have and have not done to my face.”
Lewis Dubbed Dubrow the ‘Cruella de Vil of Orange County’
During Lewis’ December 2021 appearance on “Watch What Happens Live,” he dubbed Dubrow the “Cruella de Vil of Orange County.”
“Look, I’ve said this before, I personally do not care for Heather Dubrow, but I think that OC needed a villain,” Lewis said at the time. “I think she’s the Cruella de Vil of Orange County, are you f****** kidding me?”
Lewis Also Said Dubrow Seems ‘Rehearsed’ on This Season of the ‘Real Housewives of Orange County’
A few weeks after his “Watch What Happens Live” appearance, Lewis hosted Shannon Beador as a guest on an episode of his radio show on SiriusXM, Jeff Lewis Live. During the December 22, 2021, episode, the two spoke about the moment during the fourth episode of the season when Dubrow threatened Beador, and Lewis accused Dubrow of acting her way through the scene.
“You’ll know why Heather never made it as an actress, because she is a terrible one,” Lewis said on-air at the time. “It’s clear … it didn’t matter what you said, Shannon, she had rehearsed a monologue probably with an acting coach and it was like a script. She basically just recited a script that she had already rehearsed.”
