Heather Dubrow Says Tamra Judge And Vicki Gunvalson “Were Both Amazingly Influential” On RHOC And Admits She’s “Really Excited To See What Their Next Chapters Are Going To Be”

Heather Dubrow opens up about Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson leaving The Real Housewives of Orange County. "You know what? When it comes to Housewives, I think that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, and the show is going to live on a long, long time," she told Entertainment Tonight.

"Tamra and Vicki, both incredible; Tamra is a dear friend of mine, I love Vicki, and they were both amazingly influential on the show," Heather notes. "But sometimes, it is time for everyone to move on, and I am really excited to see what their next chapters are going to be."

"Tamra, you know, she was amazing on Housewives, but she is a very private person, and what has been going on in her family for the last several months has been, obviously, very sad and upsetting," Heather remarks. "She has kept it really close to the vest -- we've been talking about it, obviously, we are close friends -- I think the way she is handling it is amazing, and I think that, what the only positive thing I can say about all of it is how their family has all come back together. But I think the lesson to take away is, we should not have to wait for something tragic or sad or upsetting to happen to pull us all back together."

When asked to offer advice to her former co-stars as they leave reality TV behind, Heather said that the journey is "probably different for everyone."

"For me, I was just so grateful to have a five-year run, I had a great experience," she told Entertainment Tonight. "It offered me a beautiful platform to do everything I am doing now, from my YouTube channel to Heather Dubrow's World podcast, to my new clothing line coming out, [my husband] Terry and I have a new book coming out next month, so many things."

"I just want to keep doing more of what I am doing, I have some really exciting television projects coming up in the next couple months," she teases. "I know, I don't want to be that person like 'stay tuned…' Whenever you say 'stay tuned,' it fails. So, I never say that. But I will tell you this -- what I am looking forward to in 2020, I love the whole, the 2020 optics of seeing clearly, and I am really embracing all of that, so for me in 2020, what I want to do is exactly what I want to do. I want to be there for my family and enjoy them, and love them and my husband and create incredible content and enjoy every minute of it because life is short and this is what we have."
