It’s her world and he just lives in it.
Heather Dubrow will not allow her husband, Dr. Terry Dubrow, soon to retire, as she explains in Thursday’s episode of “Heather Dubrow’s World” presented by PodcastOne.
“I’m not letting Terry retire,” the “Real Housewives of Orange County” star tells her latest guest, comedian Ms. Pat. ‘He’s a surgeon. He dies with a scalpel!”
Heather, 53, even jokes that Terry, 63, might one day “keep” in the operating room.
“He can’t retire,” says the former soap actress.
Heather also admits that she doesn’t want Terry to hang up his white coat because she plans on having her beloved time alone at the couple’s Newport Beach, California mansion.
“He can’t be home,” she adds. “That won’t work.”
Heather – who shares four children with Terry: twins Max and Nicholas, 18, Kat, 15, and Collette, 11 – needn’t worry too much.
When Page Six caught up with the “Botched” doc in February, he expressed an enduring passion for performing plastic surgery — especially in patients seeking more than just cosmetic improvements.
Terry proved just that in Season 7B of his E! reality show, also featuring Dr. Paul Nassif in the lead role.
“Just when I thought it was going to be another season of impossible-to-repair plastic surgery for cosmetic reasons, we’re now entering a new world of plastic surgery gone wrong for congenital malformations, for cancer reconstruction,” Terry said. time, adding: “This is a really tough, high stakes, intense [season].”
The latest episode of “Botched” also documented more of Terry’s work with the transgender community, helping individuals embrace their identities after physical and emotional trauma.
“I’ve learned it’s an extremely difficult journey,” said the doctor, who has children who identify as LGBTQIA+. “Fortunately, society is starting to evolve and they understand and appreciate that it’s as natural as being gay, it’s as natural as having blue eyes or being six feet or not.”
He explained: ‘It is slowly becoming more accepted and more understood and appreciated. But it’s not easy. Even if you get hired, it’s not easy, so I think it needs a lot of support.”
Terry said he still finds his job “incredibly satisfying” — even decades after graduating from medical school.
“For these ‘Botched’ patients, in many ways, this transformation represents one of the most important things in their lives,” he told us. “To be able to clear them from ‘I’m disfigured, I can’t do this, I can’t be in public’, to suddenly ‘I’m back to normal’ – that’s so satisfying and makes it worth putting yourself in danger. ”
