'RHOC': Heather Dubrow remains unapologetic about her 'karma' remark to Noella
If you thought that Heather would apologize to Noella during the reunion for her snide 'karma' comment, then you couldn't be more wrong
When Heather Dubrow blamed new housewife Noella Bergener's 'karma' for the pain and suffering she was going through, fans slammed Heather. 'Real Housewives of Orange County' fans felt that Heather's remarks were in poor taste considering Noella was grieving the loss of her father, while still trying to wrap her head around her messy divorce from Sweet James Bergener, and her son being diagnosed with being on the spectrum.
So if you thought that Heather would apologize to Noella during the reunion and try to make amends, then you couldn't be more wrong. The second and final part of the 'RHOC' season 16 reunion featured host Andy Cohen addressing the 'karma' remark by reading out a question from a fan pointing out how Heather's poor comments appeared like she was kicking Noella while she was down. Heather got all defensive on hearing the question and pointed out that she was just retaliating to Noella's earlier comments, and that her karma remark didn't come out of the blue.
Heather pointed out how Noella started it all by saying Heather's karma would get her, which in turn prompted the housewife to tell off Noella by pointing out how her karma was serving her what she deserved. Heather also clarified by acknowledging that what Noella was going through was very hard and she wouldn't wish it back on anybody, but that she just 'thre back' the karma comment at her.
While Gina Kirschenheiter, Emily Simpson, and Dr Jennifer Armstrong quietly watched the two ladies go at each other, Shannon Beador stepped in to defend Noella. Shannon pointed out how Noella was still grieving the loss of her father who had passed away less than a week ago, and felt that some of the ladies were extremely insensitive towards Noella's feelings. It wasn't just Heather who made a snide remark about Noella, even Gina simply shrugged off Noella's loss as 'sh*t happens', which resulted in Gina being slammed by fans.
'Real Housewives of Orange County' is available for streaming on Bravo and Peacock.
