Noella Bergener Says Heather Dubrow Has “Direct Fragility”
She gave it to her straightish.
Wednesday night’s episode of “The Real Housewives of Orange County” saw Noella Bergener – the reality show’s first openly bisexual and black star – accuse Heather Dubrow of having “straightforward frailty.”
The claim came after Dubrow, 53, alleged Bergener, 36, offered Dubrow’s 17-year-old daughter Max “pornography”.
“How dare I not know your direct fragility when buying something? Bergener asked during a controversial group dinner in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
“My frailty right?” a stunned Dubrow fired back. “I have two gay children. Don’t tell me I have direct fragility.
As “RHOC” viewers are well aware, Bergener gave Max, who also identifies as bisexual, a pride-themed deck of cards to celebrate the release of the teenager’s LGBTQIA+ memoir, “I I’ll give it to you directly.”
Dubrow has previously expressed distaste for Bergener’s present and called it “inappropriate” for its sexually explicit content that the latter “Housewife” says she was unaware of.
“I am a biracial liberal biracial woman who lives in Orange County,” Bergener told Dubrow. “Don’t you dare tell me I’m ‘inappropriate'”.
Dubrow then clarified that she felt Bergener’s gift was “inappropriate”, not the series debutant herself – but Bergerner was unconvinced.
“She says, as a bisexual woman to her bisexual daughter, that I was ‘inappropriate,'” she told the group, which also included teammates Shannon Beador, Gina Kirschenheiter, Emily Simpson and Dr. Jen Armstrong. .
To prove his point, Dubrow read some of the cards to the women, which supposedly contained so many swear words that the majority of his words were spoken.
“Incredibly inappropriate,” replied a shocked Bergener, her mouth hanging open. “I am horrified.”
In a confessional, the founder of Playlound admitted that she regretted giving the cards to Max. However, she disagreed with Dubrow’s “pornography” comparison.
“If I had known that was what the cards said, I wouldn’t have given this to a 17-year-old girl,” she insisted. “But even to use the word ‘pornography’ is completely overkill and the wrong word.”
Back at the table, Dubrow further expressed her support for her LGBTQIA+ children. The former soap actress also shares son Nicholas, 18, and daughters Katarina, 15, and Collette, 11, with husband Dr Terry Dubrow.
“I have four children of all different sexual orientations that I’m very proud of and very supportive of. And that has nothing to do with it,” she told Bergener.
“So please please don’t try to draw a card in this space that I don’t understand being bisexual or gay or whatever.”
“The Real Housewives of Orange County” airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
