‘RHOC’ recap: Heather Dubrow threatens to quit show, says she ‘hates’ co-stars after explosive dinner fight

Heather Dubrow got so fired up from an explosive argument that she threatened to quit the “Real Housewives of Orange County” during Wednesday’s episode.

During a group dinner in Mexico, Tamra Judge, Gina Kirschenheiter and Emily Simpson were all screaming at Dubrow for allegedly calling them “f—king losers” behind their backs.

However, Dubrow vehemently denied the accusations and claimed she was referring to former “RHOC” co-stars Noella Bergener and Jen Armstrong.

However, the ladies continued yelling at her and calling her a “fake friend.”

“I didn’t call you a loser, but honestly I’m tired of being taken to task by this group. I get it, you don’t like me,” Dubrow said before fleeing the group dinner.

She then walked over to Vicki Gunvalson, who had removed herself from the argument and was crying about how nasty the women were being to each other.

“I’m done, I’m really done, I’m done,” Dubrow, 54, said. “We’re done. They’re so mean to me, but I’m done with the show. I’m out, I’m done.”

While in tears, Gunvalson told her friend that she would “never put up with” the way the other women were speaking to her.

“Nope, too much,” Dubrow agreed.

Shannon Beador joined the duo at the bar and asked them why they were upset, to which Gunvalson, 61, explained that the ladies were “all just chewing” at Dubrow and should “leave her f—king alone.”

“I don’t like being the scapegoat. I think it’s bulls—t. I don’t like it,” Dubrow said. “Can someone be on my f—king side?”

The fight exploded hours after Dubrow said she “hates” the ladies in a hot mic moment.

The cast was riding in a sprinter van when Simpson, 47, recalled Dubrow unfollowing all of her co-stars after her initial exit from the show in 2016.

Simpson mentioned that she had just re-followed her the day before — even though Dubrow returned to the franchise in 2021.

“When I left the friend group, and I had FOMO [fear of missing out], and we talked about this, I unfollowed everyone, because I didn’t wanna see it,” Dubrow explained.

However, Simpson and Kirschenheiter, 39, didn’t seem satisfied with her explanation, arguing that not following someone on social media was “personal.”

“You’re trying to make it sound like it’s weird,” Dubrow said. “You guys have a way of twisting things.”

Simpson and Kirschenheiter said they were “good” with Dubrow since she re-followed Simpson, but Dubrow was still upset over the whole ordeal.

“I’m 100 percent the punching bag in this trip,” she said in a confessional. “Anyone’s looking for me to breathe wrong, chew inappropriately. I can’t do anything right. I just want to be quiet and let this trip end.”

Dubrow eventually got out of the vehicle and blurted out to her co-stars that she’s “going home.” She then walked over to a mini market where her mic was still on.

“All these girls are so f—king all over anything I f—king say or do. I hate them all,” she said while venting to someone in the store. “I just want to come home. I hate them.”

Can’t get enough ‘Real Housewives?’

Taylor Armstrong later went over to comfort Dubrow, who reiterated that she was “really ready to go home.”

“Every time I try to say anything, it just gets all turned around on me, so I’m just tired of it,” she told Armstrong. “I just really do not feel like I fit in, and anything I say just gets dissected or turned back around on me. If I make a joke, it’s not OK.”

Armstrong, 52, suggested that some of the women feel “inferior” to Dubrow and her lifestyle.

“Maybe. I’ve been trying to say to Emily and Gina and them [that] I feel like there’s a double standard, but they keep telling me it’s a ‘me’ problem,” Dubrow said in a shaky voice, adding, “All I wanna do now is go home to my family. I just don’t wanna talk to anyone.”

“The Real Housewives of Orange County” airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
