Heather Dubrow appeared on Wednesday’s Watch What Happens Live, where she made it clear that Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador‘s drama is far from over on The Real Housewives of Orange County.

While also discussing Tamra’s messy behavior and the 2022 sale of her and Terry Dubrow‘s $55 million “dream house” in Newport Beach, California, Heather said things don’t “end well” with Tamra and Shannon before offering an update on her relationship with former castmate Alexis Bellino and more.

Speaking first of the drama on the latest episode of RHOC on the June 21 episode of WWHL, Heather said she encouraged Gina Kirschenheiter not to bring up Jennifer Pedranti‘s post about her yoga studio being open amid the closure of Tamra’s fitness studio because “historically, that hasn’t gone well.”

Then, after saying she “really [doesn’t]” think Jen was throwing shade at Tamra, Heather was asked if she’d go and see Taylor’s new movie, Guardians.

“That depends. Is the invite ever coming for the movie?” she asked as host Andy Cohen interjected.

“There’s more to come on this story… we’ve got a Malibu County situation on the horizon,” he noted.

“Oh, we do. Yes, we do,” Heather agreed. “But I have to say I actually think she did a really good job and Warren Jackson, who I actually met through this show, weirdly, a number of years ago, did a really good job. I thought she did well.”

While Heather and Alexis only appeared together on two seasons of RHOC, season seven and season eight, and didn’t end on the best of terms, Heather confirmed they are friendly today.

“We’ve been talking for the last few years. Actually, a couple of our kids were in a play together like three or four years ago, and we connected back then, and we’ve been talking ever since,” she revealed. “At some point, it doesn’t matter. We’re sorority sisters [of the Real Housewives franchise]. We’re good. We’re all mothers.”

Regarding the sale of her “dream house,” Heather surprisingly admitted she doesn’t miss the 22,000-square-foot property, saying it was actually the dream home of her husband, Terry Dubrow.

“I do love building houses and all of that. But we lived there longer than we’ve ever lived anywhere. We lived there for six years,” she explained. “We’ve been together almost 30 years, and we’ve never lived longer than three years in a place until this house because we tend to just redo houses and do real estate and that’s part of our thing. But for me, I was like the house manager.”

“It was a small hotel, and not to be ungrateful, but it was a job, and with two kids gone and another one out the door and the third one dangling on, I kinda like, looking forward to living in the [$14 million penthouse] and being alone with us,” she added.

Heather also addressed Tamra and Emily Simpson‘s suggestion that she has a habit of interrupting.

“Maybe what I have to say is more interesting,” she posed.

Later, on the WWHL: After Show, Heather was asked by a fan whether she thinks Shannon and John are really “never” getting back together, as Shannon has claimed.

“It’s a conundrum,” Heather admitted. “I’ve seen them out about town, together and apart, and I have learned from the rest of the season of the show, which you’ll continue to watch, that I really can’t comment on such a thing.”

“Yes. Just keep watching. She will lose her mind,” Andy added.

Back on the live broadcast, during a game in which she was asked to choose between Tamra and Shannon, Heather named Tamra as the one who’s quicker to piss her off, the biggest “pot-stirrer,” and the one with “better business sense.”

And when asked who’s the most fun on vacation, Heather started to say Tamra and Shannon were both fun before noting, “Well, not this last vacation, that didn’t go well.”

As for who husband Terry prefers, Heather shared, “He likes them both, honestly, but we’ve seen Shannon more recently.”

Then, when questioned about whether or not she regrets encouraging Tamra and Shannon to mend their relationship now that they are close now and she seems to be on the outs with them both, Heather said she did not.

“I really did want them to come back together and be friends but that’s always, look, that’s the circle of three, especially with chicks,” she noted. “Apparently not the throuple I was hoping for.”

That said, she did like seeing Tamra’s apology to Shannon.

“It was appropriate. I thought it was good and I’m glad it was received and then I guess we’ll have to see how that all works out,” she stated, before teasing, “And by the way, spoiler alert: It doesn’t all end well.”

The Real Housewives of Orange County season 17 airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on Bravo.
