Heather And Terry Dubrow Of “The Real Housewives Of Orange County” Sold Their Massive Mansion For $55 Million
For much of Heather and Terry Dubrow’s stint on The Real Housewives of Orange County, they’ve basically made their obscenely monstrous mansion their entire personality; those of us who faithfully partake in the shameful ritual of watching the show have seen the house from infancy to overfed adult. But, Entertainment Tonight says that the Dubrows have recently unloaded the ostentatious Restoration Hardware warehouse-looking home for a record-setting amount and have now downsized to a smaller Los Angeles penthouse. Quelle horreur!
The Dubrows have broadcasted the size and features of “Chateau Dubrow” to any poor pauper who made the mistake of keeping their internet and TV services current, but if you need a refresher, here’s a tour of the 22,000 square foot Newport Beach, CA manse that includes a champagne wall, champagne button in the master closet, $1 million theater, and many other tacky “fuck you money” features:
With the amount the Dubrows have flaunted their pride in this monstrosity over the years, I would’ve figured they’d die and be buried in a marble mausoleum in the east wing powder room courtyard, but after just six years of living in the home, they’ve sold it for a record $55 million to an unknown buyer.
The couple just closed on the sale of their 22,000 square foot Newport Beach mansion for $55 million, the largest sale of the year in Orange County, California — and the third highest sale in Orange County history.
Our sources say Million Dollar Listing: Los Angeles powerhouse realtor Josh Altman represented the Dubrows in the sale, which came out of the blue from a mystery buyer. The home, which Heather and Terry moved into six years ago after documenting its construction on RHOC, was not up for sale.
Josh Altman declined to comment on the sale, but a source close to the agent tells ET this sets the tone for his newly launched Newport Beach office, the opening of which is part of the upcoming season of MDLLA, premiering Dec. 8 on Bravo.
A reality show realtor helped them with the sale? But they’re usually so inconspicuous; weird! The Dubrows have four children, two of which are in college already and the other two not far behind, so moving on to a smaller home makes sense. So, they’ve now holed up in a Los Angeles penthouse.
Reached for comment, Heather tells ET, “Wow, that got out fast! With two kids at college, we’ve been thinking about our next move. We just bought a cool penthouse in L.A. and sometimes the universe shows you the right direction. Change is exciting!”
In another reality TV crossover, the Dubrows purchased their Century City condo with the help of Selling Sunset’s Heather El Moussa.
“Wow, that got out fast!” said the woman who probably called the paparazzi to shoot her and her husband cuddling at Disneyland after rumors of his cheating got out. And another reality TV realtor? Well, shucks, what a coincidence. It’s almost like the Dubrows are worried that vacating their OC Housewives franchise coverage area might leave them in a bind after the current season they’re filming wraps, so they’re making sure to cover all of their reality bases. Apparently, Terry’s show, Botched, just isn’t enough. But, Heather has a plan to stay a Housewife, too! She can just hop on over to another franchise.
As for what the move means for the Dubrows’ future on The Real Housewives of Orange County, Heather is currently filming season 17, which will seemingly include this process. As she told ET at BravoCon, “I think that as a New Yorker transplanted to L.A., dragged down to Orange County, I’m migrating home. Let’s just see what happens there.”
“I mean, Garcelle [Beauvais] and I have been friends for a long time, [Lisa] Rinna and I have known each other,” she added, hinting at a jump to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. “I do enjoy diamonds — let’s be clear — we’ll see where the wind takes us.”
Here’s Heather and Terry addressing their “new chapter” with a photo shoot, which very much makes it look like they’re plotting more ways to stay on our TV:
Heather always did seem to fancy herself much too refined for the OC, so a pivot to Beverly Hills would surely heal her ego after the tragedy of having to downsize. And since Terry’s a plastic surgeon and she’s a pretentious snob who insists upon her own fine tastes, I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s some kind of show on the way where a person who Terry’s giving a whole new face gets their entire house redecorated by Heather while they’re away recovering. Let me be the first to suggest the title, “Trading Faces AND Spaces.”
