‘Real Housewives of Orange County’ Spoilers: Heather Dubrow Reveals She Did Not Know Her Daughter Was Bisexual Until It Became Public
When speaking on it to Us Weekly, she went on to say how there was never any talk of the issue: “What was kind of funny was we’d never discussed it. She and I had many conversations about it, but she never said, ‘Guess what? This is the day I’m in to let the world know.”
Heather then revealed the exact moment at which she found out: “I had my bag on my shoulder [and] she was, [like], ‘Hey Mom, did you see my post?’ And I was like, ‘No, I didn’t see it.’ I looked [and] I’m, like, ‘Oh, that’s so cool. I love this. This is great,’ she said. “I go, ‘Can I re-post this?’ And she was like, ‘Yeah, sure.”
Upon finding out, Heather was fully supportive as she re-posted her daughter’s message before revealing Max’s reaction: “She was like, ‘Yeah, no.’ She was only worried that my caption was good. I think she just was at that spot where she was ready. She wanted to live out and open and live her truth.”
And yet, Heather was still worried for her daughter. She told Us Weekly: “She goes to a religious school, and she was worried. She’s already, you know, a Jewish kid, you know — we call ourselves Bujews ’cause we’re like Buddhist Jews — but she’s like this Bujew going to this Catholic school, who’s now openly bisexual. And she was worried about it, and they just embraced her with so much love, and it was fantastic.”
And with that, the worries disappeared as Heather revealed how her daughter had turned this experience into a positive one: “I said to her at one point, I’m like, ‘You know, you’re having a little bit of a moment. What are you going to do with it?’ And I love that her response to the whole thing was, ‘I want to help other people, how can I help other people be able to come out to their family or live their truth or talk about mental health?”
“She’s very open about having been in therapy for a long time. She has a lot of social anxiety, and I just love how comfortable she is in her own skin.” Things turned out fine after all.
