Noella Bergener calls Heather Dubrow a ‘narcissist’


She’s coming for “Fancy Pants.”

Wednesday evening’s episode of “The Real Housewives of Orange County” noticed sequence beginner Noella Bergener take a dig at frenemy Heather Dubrow, who she finds a bit self-absorbed. 

Bergener, 36, met Dubrow, 53, at her Newport Beach mansion to debate points of their burgeoning friendship. 

The two made their strategy to Dubrow’s podcast studio, which has partitions lined in images of the actress — an ornamental alternative that made Bergener cringe. 

“I had my suspicions before but this is pretty concrete evidence. This is a shrine to a complete and really, really good narcissist,” she stated in a confessional. “This is thorough. If I wasn’t so creeped out, I’d be impressed.”

When they sat down to speak, Dubrow confronted Bergener over claims that she labeled the previous cleaning soap star a “phony” and “fake bitch” throughout an emotional lunch with “friend of the Housewives” Nicole James.

“I knew going into that lunch I was very raw, I was very emotional,” stated Bergener, explaining that she was reeling from husband James Bergener’s shock divorce submitting on the time she insulted Dubrow behind her again. 

“The person I’m really angry with obviously is James, but your name got brought up and it was literally like, ‘F—k phony bulls—t.’ I lashed out,” Noella defined, agreeing with Dubrow that she had expressed “misplaced aggression.” 

“I was like, ‘She’s going through a lot. I’m going to let that one go,’” Dubrow stated. 

But there was yet another level of competition to maneuver previous. Gina Kirschenheiter’s allegation that Noella stated Dubrow was “not to be trusted.”

“Remember how I said Nicole has told me a lot of things about her life? I was the one who called her after she left your house party,” Noella stated.

Of course, she was referencing the dramatic Nobu-catered gathering on the Dubrow residence. The fête was set ablaze by allegations concerning James’ former lawsuit towards Dubrow’s plastic surgeon husband, Dr. Terry Dubrow, for a “botched boob job” years in the past. 

“And then after she spoke with you, everything had changed. And that was a little bizarre to me,” Noella continued, later alleging in a confessional that her good pal James “changed” after a cellphone name with Heather. (As viewers will recall, the Dubrows instantly forgave a tearful James on website.)

“Heather telling her to drop any conversation of the lawsuit, that’s a little disturbing,” Noella instructed the digital camera, implying that James had been compelled into silence on the matter. 

Tension continued to rise as Noella and Heather’s assembly progressed. At one level, Noella accused Heather of “slamming people against walls” on the aforementioned banquet, a declare that Heather strongly denied. 

“What I’m getting right now is psycho vibes,” Heather lamented in a confessional. “What are you f—king talking about? Am I being punk’d?”

The girls concluded their dialog with a mutual understanding that they’re higher off not being associates. 

“You have a lot going on in your life right now and I don’t take it personally. Having said that though, I’m not sure I’m the right friend for you,” Heather stated. “You need to focus on your family and you need to take care of yourself.”

Noella stated {that a} “deep” friendship with Heather isn’t essential: “I’m very happy keeping social friendships.”
