Heather Dubrow on returning to 'RHOC' in the future: 'Never say never' (Exclusive)

Though Heather Dubrow isn't currently considering returning to "The Real Housewives of Orange County," that doesn't mean that she's completely counting out the prospect of becoming a cast member again.

Heather and husband, Dr. Terry Dubrow, who both appeared on seasons 7 through 11 of the hit Bravo show, recently caught up with AOL's Gibson Johns, where Heather addressed her time on the show and whether or not she would consider coming back to join Vicki Gunvalson and Co.

"But I feel like I did five years, it was a good run -- some years good some years not so good -- but, you know what? That's sort of the nature of the beast," she said. "When I look back on it, I only feel fondness. I remember the laughing, I remember the trips, I remember the good, and I'm very grateful for the platform that its presented us."

Indeed, both Heather and her husband have made the most of their platform: In addition to Terry starring on E! reality show, "Botched," for five seasons, Heather also hosts the highly successful podcast, "Heather Dubrow's World." The couple wrote the top-Googled wellness book of 2018, "The Dubrow Diet: Interval Eating to Lose Weight and Feel Ageless."

"Also, can you go back to a school you've graduated from?" Terry posited.

When we noted that, yes, Housewives have previously left various franchises and returned to varying degrees of success (Bethenny Frankel on "RHONY" and NeNe Leakes on "RHOA," for example), Heather revealed that she can't completely count out the idea.

"Never say never," she added cautiously. "I don't want to say that I'm never go back and then be like, 'Well, I've changed my mind.'"

Working in Heather's favor is the fact that her former co-stars, like Vicki and Tamra, have both stated publicly that they want her to return to "RHOC." In fact, Heather recently ran into Vicki at Mastro's Steakhouse, where the pair had a funny interaction about her coming back. 

Check out our full interview with Heather and Terry Dubrow at the top of the page to hear that story.
