As expected, this season of The Real Housewives of Orange County is filled with drama. But one of the most intense rivalries came early on: Heather Dubrow versus her husband Dr. Terry Dubrow's love for onion rings.
While preparing to host a clambake for her fellow Housewives, Heather shot down Terry's request to add onion rings to the menu – which Heather admits puzzled a lot of fans.
But during a recent visit to PEOPLE's studio, the couple shared a laugh over the televised squabble.
"Aren't onion rings amazing? I mean, let's be honest," Terry says.
"From Terry's side and maybe some of our viewers, they would say 'Hey! The guy just wants onion rings, what do you care? Just give him the onion rings!' " Heather says. "And then from my point of view, I'm thinking, 'I am shooting this TV show six days a week, many, many hours a day, plus I have four children to take care of, plus I have to take care of my husband, plus everyday normal activities ..."
"He was so relentless about it! I can't make the onion ring thing happen by the way, it's not on the menu," she explains. "Be a good guy and just let it go!"
The Real Housewives of Orange County airs Mondays (9 a.m. ET) on Bravo.
