Heather Dubrow Not Returning To 'Real Housewives Of Orange County'

Heather Dubrow is leaving “The Real Housewives of Orange County.”

The reality star announced the news in a statement to Bravo’s Daily Dish on Friday.

“After a lot of careful thought and deliberation, I have decided not to return to RHOC this season,” her statement read. “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.  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.”

Heather has been a cast member of “RHOC” since 2012. The show has offered a look into her life with her kids and husband Terry Dubrow of the E! series “Botched.”
