Heather Dubrow Officially Quits The Real Housewives Of Orange County After Five Seasons!

It's official! Heather Dubrow officially confirms her departure from The Real Housewives of Orange County. The mother-of-four announced on her podcast, Heather Dubrow's World, that she will not return to the Bravo hit reality series after five seasons.

“If you’re wondering why I’ve decided to not come back, it wasn’t an easy decision,” Heather explains. “You know, it’s hard to walk away from something, first of all, that’s been successful for five years, and truly has given us so much. But I just feel like, right at this particular point in time, a couple of things [changed my mind].”

“First of all, my kids,” she continues. “My oldest kids are now teenagers, and I just felt like they need to make their own decision about being on television and exposing their lives, and for me personally, I have some really cool, interesting opportunities that I want to explore. I don’t know where they’re going to go, but I want the opportunity to explore them.”

“I felt like I was at a tipping point, and just… it was time,” she says. “But, it’s all positive and I wish them all the best.”

Heather credits the show with making her a more adventurous person, taking her out of her comfort zone and affording her many “cool experiences.”

“I will miss the girls,” she adds.

Heather also released a statement to Bravo about the decision.

"After a lot of careful thought and deliberation, I have decided not to return to RHOC this season. These past 5 years have been an incredible journey and I'm so proud to have been a part of such an iconic piece of pop culture," Heather said in an exclusive statement to The Daily Dish. "I am so grateful to Evolution Media, Bravo and the whole NBCU family for all of the incredible experiences and the opportunities RHOC has afforded me and my family. However, at this point in my life, I have decided to go in another direction and do what’s best for my family and career. Should I change my mind, I thank Andy Cohen, Evolution and Bravo for telling me that the door is always open."

Since joining RHOC in Season 7, we've watched Heather, her husband Terry Dubrow, and their four kids grow — and move — right before our eyes. During Season 11, the Dubrows worked to balance Terry's busy career (and the strains it sometimes put on their marriage and family), as well as the construction of the Dubrow Chateau, the family's swanky new O.C. crib, which features an insane hers closet complete with a Champagne doorbell.
