Former Real Housewives of Orange County star Heather Dubrow has a truly incredible kitchen — so incredible, in fact, that her ‘pantry’ looks like many regular people’s kitchens.
The 50-year-old reality star has been giving fans a YouTube video tour of Château Dubrow for several months, showing off the home that she and E! Botched doctor Terry Dubrow built from the ground up.
She’s already done an episode on her extensive kitchen, so in the latest episode, she took a camera through her large and enviable pantry, as well as the garden just outside the door where she grows fruits and herbs.
Must be nice! Former Real Housewives of Orange County star Heather Dubrow showed off her pantry in a new episode of her YouTube series
Neat: The open shelves are filled with matching glass jars of different sizes, which contain grains, powders, snacks, baking ingredients. Each one has a custom etching on the side detailing what’s inside, so no cheap temporary labels
Jealous: The pantry is quite large, certainly with more storage space than some people have in their entire kitchen
Look up! Above the jars of food are lots of bins, which are filled with more snacks and packaged foods, with everything easy to see and identify
Precise: She took organizing tips from Khloe Kardashian — including how Khloe organizes her cookies
Everything: The pantry also has a toaster and coffee maker, cabinets filled with glass and plastic containers for food, and disposable containers and cups for when they are on the go
The pantry is quite large, certainly with more storage space than some people have in their entire kitchen. It’s also impeccably organized, with Heaver having taken cues from Khloe Kardashian.
The open shelves are filled with matching glass jars of different sizes, which contain grains, powders, snacks, baking ingredients. Each one has a custom etching on the side detailing what’s inside, so no cheap temporary labels.
Nothing is cramped or crowded, either, with plenty of space between the jars of pita chips and cookies (which are stacked neatly inside as Khloe Kardashian does them).
Above the jars of food are lots of bins, which are filled with more snacks and packaged foods, with everything easy to see and identify.
‘Everything has a place,’ Heather explains. ‘This pantry is very organized. Everything’s very neat. And I know you’re wondering, who lives like this? Something’s gotta be messy, right?’
That’s when she points to the fridge, which is a bit of a mess compared to everything else. Heather says it’s where they hide the things they don’t want in the ‘pretty refrigerator’ in the kitchen, sauces and whip creams they can’t take out of the original packaging and replace with clear, uniform packaging.
On to the cabinets and drawers, Heather shows off the monogrammed lunch bags she has for her kids, which she had made with a letter ‘D’ on them — because, she says, not only are they cute, but they are also easy to find when they end up in the Lost and Found at school.

Real life: Heather says the fridge is where they hide the things they don’t want in the ‘pretty refrigerator’ in the kitchen, sauces and whip creams they can’t take out of the original packaging and replace with clear, uniform packaging
The good stuff: Drawers pull out to reveal a hidden freezer with more food from Trader Joe’s
Meticulous: Heather shows off the monogrammed lunch bags she has for her kids, which she had made with a letter ‘D’ on them (left) as well as her laminated sheets of paper where she organizes her week (right)
Crushing it! Heather really loves ‘crunchy ice’ and proudly showed off the crushed ice maker
Incredible: They have a special elevator that goes to the garage to send up groceries
She had a dumbwaiter installed in the pantry, as well, which is essentially a special elevator for her groceries. It allows her and her husband to drive into their garage and load all of their groceries inside a cabinet.
They then press a button, and the groceries are transported directly to the kitchen, so they don’t have to carry them — an excess luxury, to be sure, but one that many people would love to have in their homes.
Finally, Heather has several laminated sheers of paper with different days of the week hanging on a cork board. Every Sunday, she updates them with dry erase markers to plan out what everyone is doing for the week, so each of the members of the household know their plans and everyone else’s.
Outside the pantry, Heather can walk directly into a large garden where they grow food.
‘I love having an edible garden! It’s so cool to be able to grow things, pick ’em, eat ’em, and it really actually tastes better when you grow it in your own garden,’ she says.
The plants change by season, but currently she is growing sunflowers, strawberries, tomatoes, and several kinds of lettuce.
She has herbs like thyme, sage, Italian parsley, basil, and mint, too.
‘It’s really nice to have fresh herbs to cook with. Not that I cook,’ she quips. The Dubrows employ a chef who cooks for them.

She said: ‘I love having an edible garden! It’s so cool to be able to grow things, pick ’em, eat ’em, and it really actually tastes better when you grow it in your own garden’
Whoops: The only ‘fail’ of the garden are the trees. She planted five, hoping for a variety of different lemons and limes. Unfortunately, the fruit hasn’t seemed to grow as she expected, though she manages to pluck a single lemon for the camera
Growin’! The plants change by season, but currently she is growing sunflowers, strawberries, tomatoes, and several kinds of lettuce. She has herbs like thyme, sage, Italian parsley, basil, and mint, too
The only ‘fail’ of the garden are the trees. She planted five, hoping for a variety of different lemons and limes. Unfortunately, the fruit hasn’t seemed to grow as she expected, though she manages to pluck a single lemon for the camera.
She’d previously given a peek at those parts of her own during a larger tour of her kitchen, in an early episode of the YouTube series, as well as during a special segment on an episode of Today’s Crazy Kitchens.
In that clip, she offered a video tour of the custom-built room, which features pricey, state-of-the-art appliances, a mind-boggling champagne fridge, and a second, smaller kitchen that she refers to as the ‘pantry’.
Heather said that her kitchen is ‘the heart of where my family lives,’ and a look inside makes it immediately obvious why they spend so much time there.
The kitchen is beautiful and spacious, with a full wall of glass doors letting in natural light. It’s lined with endless white cabinets and decorated with chic black and silver furniture, including a round table that seats eight and a second high-top eating island that seats eight a well.
There’s also an island for cooking, marble counter tops, and a large TV.
But likely the biggest jaw-dropper is the champagne fridge, which can hold 234 bottles — all of Veuve Clicquot.
Happy family! Heather has been showing off the home bit by bit in a YouTube series (pictured left to right: Nick, Max, Terry, Heather, Coco, and Kat)
Where the heart is: She’s previously shown off the kitchen (the door to the pantry can be seen in the back corner)
Wow! Heather also showed off her incredible kitchen in a video for Today at the end of September of last year
Stunning! She said that her enormous kitchen is ‘the heart of where my family lives’
The good life: Heather doesn’t typically cook herself, and the family has a chef who makes meals
Big: The kitchen is beautiful and spacious, lined with endless white cabinets and decorated with chic black and silver furniture, including a round table that seats eight and a second high-top eating island that seats eight a well
Magic: The metal piece in the center here comes out, revealing a bin that can be filled with ice for chilling drinks and food
Well-stocked: Heather’s house includes a colossal 234-bottle champagne fridge housing rows of Veuve Clicquot
In addition to that supply, she also keeps a few bottles ready in the regular fridge, which is hidden behind white doors that match the cabinets.
‘I feel like angels should sing a little bit as I open this,’ she said, swinging the doors open to reveal the pristine shelves inside.
Fruit and veggies are stored in class bowls, and even juice has been emptied out into uniform containers, as Heather says how much she likes ‘everything in its place’.
Heather also showed off her many, many cabinets, which are all impeccable and perfectly organized. There are refrigerated drawers filled with glass bottles of soda, as well as warming drawers for hot foods.
There are craft drawers for her kids, a tea cabinet (complete with mugs and saucers), and a very high-tech coffee maker.
The coffee maker is a $3,000 Miele machine with a digital display, where the user can pick the type of coffee (including espresso, a cappuccino, or a latte). It also cleans itself.
‘It’s very high-tech and I don;’t drink coffee so I don’t really know how to use that, but it is very cool,’ she says.
She next shows off a steam oven and a microwave, before going onto the second table in her kitchen, the eating island.
Wow: There is a tons and tons of cabinet and drawer space, and everything is neatly put away
Enormous: She also walked viewers through all of the drawers and cabinets, and showed off hard liquor on the counter top
But wait, there’s more! She even has more Veuve Clicquot in the fridge
So organized: All the fruits, vegetables, and juices inside are stored in clear glass containers
Very neat: She doesn’t drink coffee, but her family has a $3,000 coffee maker, and their sodas are stored in glass bottles inside a refrigerated drawer
‘What’s really special about it is this,’ she says, gesturing to a metal grate that runs down the middle. The grate lifts out, and underneath is a deep sink. When entertaining, she will fill the sink with ice and champagne, caviar, and crudites for her guests.
‘You know those ads you see on Instagram, or late at night for those crazy, like, food dehydrator, or air fryer, or all this stuff — you know who buys that stuff? Me!’ she says, showing off a pair of scissors with a built-in mini cutting board.
Heather has gone on to take viewers through other parts of her home, including the master bedroom, the garage, the laundry room, the gym, the music room, the movie theater, and the basement.
Back in February, she went one by one through her four children’s rooms while also showing off the hallway outside.
Heather insisted that each of the kids was hands-on in designing their spaces, explaining: ‘My mom was a designer, so when I was growing up, my mother decorated our rooms and we had absolutely no say in them, couldn’t put a poster up, couldn’t do anything. And I didn’t want my kids to have that.
The bedrooms are all upstairs in the house, which Heather explains is their more private area. It’s here, in the hallway, where she hangs her favorite family photos, which are absent from the rest of the house.
The upstairs: Earlier this year, Heather gave a tour of the upstairs hallway, which she said is the private area of the house
Wall of fame! The mother-of-four revealed that the upstairs hallway is home to her favorite family photos
The hall in the upstairs also includes some seating, as well as along desk with computers where the kids can hang out.
But while the hall area is pretty basic, each of the kids’ rooms is bursting with personality.
Say cheese: Heather, pictured with the entire Dubrov clan on Thanksgiving last year, showed off each of her children’s bedrooms one by one in the YouTube video
Heather started with a look at her 15-year-old son Nick’s room, which is directly across from his fraternal twin Max’s room. Both are right near the elevator, so they can get up easily fro the garage.
Unlike his sisters, Nick didn’t have a lot of preferences for his room, but he loves it just the same.
‘Nicky absolutely loves his room. It’s funny, he wasn’t that specific about anything, he just said, you know my colors, you know what I like,’ said Heather. ‘He now says this is his favorite room he’s ever had.’
The bedroom has beige walls and is filled with muted earth tones. It has a masculine vibe, with leather furniture and industrial accents, like his desk. The desk was initially paired with a nice chair, but Heather said Nick didn’t like it because it wasn’t ‘conducive to gaming,’ so they got him a special gaming chair that Heather positively hates.
For decor, the teen’s walls are accented with memorabilia from his late uncle, Kevin DuBrow, who was the former lead vocalist of Quiet Riot. Kevin died in 2007, and Nick wanted to honor him by spotlighting his gold records and guitars.
The teen also has a huge closet, which is decorated with more memorabilia, sports trophies, and a dart board his mom installed.
Guy’s guy: Nick, 15, raved about his bedroom — which has a leather bed, leather and suede throw pillows, and masculine touches like a trunk desk
Fit for a king! Nick’s headquarters also features several guitars hanging on the wall, as well as photos of family and friends
Team work: Nick revealed in the video that although he was involved in the decoration of his bedroom, his mother did most of the work in picking all of the furniture out
Master of the house: Heather said that Nick’s room is the largest of all the children’s, as it is the house’s second master room
Sentimental: Heather said that Nick wanted to feature some of his uncle memorabilia from his uncle Kevin Dubrov’s, who was the lead signer of Quiet Riot before his death in 2007
Play time! Heather also put a dart board in the teen’s closet, and it hangs next to his hats and his uncle’s gold records
Net up is Max’s room, which has a glamorous black and white palette. The lucky 15-year-old sleeps in a black and white bed with black bedding, which is accented with textured and zebra striped pillows.
There’s some sparkle, too, in the carpets and the lighting.
She’s picked some minimalist monochrome artwork, hanging a framed poster that says ‘I Want It All’ and another painting of Audrey Hepburn — but Heather says things have changed since they first finished the house.
‘Max’s room is evolving as she’s getting older,’ she said.
In addition to a spacious closet, Max (which is short for Maximillia) also has her very own bathroom — in fact, all four kids do.
‘Each kid has their own bathroom in their room,’ she said. ‘What a luxury! I didn’t grow up like that. Me and my sister shared a bathroom, we fought over the bathroom, we had one of these shower-tub things where the drain was always clogged… these kids are very lucky.’
Unlike her siblings, Max didn’t appear in the video, and only made a brief appearance in the introductory clip released last year.
Full house: Max (left) and Nick (right) are twins and live right across the hall from each other
Girly: Max’s room, which Heather describes as ‘cool,’ features black and white accents, as well as subtle hints of zebra print
Aesthetic: She’s picked some minimalist monochrome artwork, hanging a framed poster that says ‘I Want It All’ and another painting of Audrey Hepburn
Glitzy! Max’s room features sparkly black carpet, as well as black and white artwork scattered around the walls
Heather promised that each of her kids helped design their own room — and even Coco, who was just five when they were doing the work, got a say: Heather would show her swatches and other items and let her choose.
The eight-year-old picked Pepto pink walls, telling her mom she wanted them painted the same shade as a bottle of Johnson & Johnson shampoo.
The entrance to her room has several pieces of framed crystal, and inside is a cushioned pink bed and pink throw pillows in different colors and textures.
The little Lego fanatic has her own pink and white Lego table that spells out her name, and the rest of the room ins white with gold accents on the furniture.
Naturally, Coco (whose name is short for Collette) has plenty of toys on display, even in her bathroom. She also keeps her mom’s 2015 Real Housewives Award for Best Supporting Agitator out for everyone to see.
Family of six: Her younger kids also appear in the video, including Coco (left) and Kat (right)
Pink paradise: The color for Coco’s room, which she says ‘was all me,’ was inspired by a bottle of shampoo she had
Little lady: Coco’s room is completely pink, with unicorns and stuffed animals scattered around
Hobby: Heather revealed that Coco loves Lego, therefore they got a Lego table with Coco’s name spelled out
Trinkets: The little girl still has plenty of toys (left), as well as an award her mom won on The Real Housewives in 2015 (right)
Cute! Coco’s bathroom sports sparkly wallpaper and glitzy artwork and is filled with bath bombs and bath toys
Golden girl: Kat’s room is painted cream, and features lots of gold accents, as well as a subtle cheetah-print carpet
All grown up! Heather revealed that Kat wanted more of an ‘adult’ kind of room, therefore they chose ‘elegant’ furniture
Fun times: Kat said that, although she wasn’t involved in every single aspect of decorating the room, she still had ‘a lot of fun’
Finally, Kat (short for Katarina) has a room that’s entirely white and gold.
‘Katty’s our little golden girl. She wanted gold, gold, gold, and gold, so that is what she got,’ Heather said.
Her entrance also has frame crystals to mirror her sister’s, and inside is a cushioned light gold bed with white and gold bedding. The furniture is all white with gilded accents, including a n Art Deco feathered bench.
She has a bathroom like her sister’s, too, with glittery emoji art and a cookie jar of bath bombs.
But as she just turned 12, her tastes are changing — and now she’s thinking she’d like a room update, which is making her mom feel a bit over it.
‘I just don’t know what I’m gonna do with that,’ she said.
The kids’ room tours came after Heather already took fans through much of the rest of the house, including the kitchen, the living room, the entryway, her office, Terry’s office and man cave, and the backyard.
Welcome! In the previous episode, Heather took viewers into her expansive back yard
Ta-da! The former Real Housewives of Orange County star walked through the sliding glass doors of Château Dubrow at the start of the episode
Resort life: She said she wanted ‘the outside of our house to really feel like a hotel’
Two-tone: She said she wanted a ‘crisp, clean, modern, black and white theme,’ which is why she settled on the lounge furniture immediately outside the doors
Boom! She is especially proud of this gong she had made in San Francisco
Al fresco: She also shows off a table for ten made they had shipped from Italy, set up close to the kitchen and topped with a champagne bowl
In the previous episode, Heather took the camera outside the house, walking around her family’s infinity pool, the outdoor kitchen, and the play area for the kids.
‘Ah, the great outdoors,’ she says in the clip, walking out of huge sliding glass doors and exiting her living and dining area. ‘Well I mean, come on, we live in California, it’s all about the inside-outside life.’
‘The backyard is basically my personal resort,’ Terry says in the video. ‘I just feel at home and relaxed. The moment I walk out there I just [sigh].’
‘I wanted the outside of our house to really feel like a hotel. I wanted there to be multiple hangout areas, super comfy lounges, places to watch TV, places to watch a game, places to have a cocktail, an outdoor dinner…’ Heather, who has her own podcast called Heather Dubrow’s World added.
She said she wanted a ‘crisp, clean, modern, black and white theme,’ which is why she settled on the lounge furniture immediately outside the doors. There’s also heating in the overhang to make the space comfortable when it gets cooler out.
Then there’s the enormous gong she had made in San Francisco — ‘the kids and Terry thought I was absolutely insane,’ she said — which they now all love.
She said that now when guests come over they all get a chance to hit the gong.
Poolside fun: The enormous pool, which looks out over an incredible coastal view, can be lit up in different colors. There’s a hot tub, too
Playtime! In the kids’ area, there’s a a trampoline, tether ball set, and Slip ‘n Slide
Another place to eat: Heather also proudly shows off the barbecue pavilion, which is close to the pool and has a huge television
Cookout: The pavilion has lots of kitchen equipment, including a dishwasher, a fridge, and a pair of pizza ovens
Bing! One of the most unique elements of the area is a bell hanging overhead. The engraving reads, ‘Everything you want right now,’ which she says is the ‘coolest most positive affirmation’
It’s a game: The family likes to throw ice cubes at the bell to ring it
She also shows off a table for ten made they had shipped from Italy, set up for easy al fresco dining since it’s so close to the kitchen and topped with a champagne bowl.
From there Heather walks out into the sun to show off the enormous pool, which looks out over an incredible coastal view. Around it are a hot tub, lounge chairs, and large circular beds, as well as angular firepits around the corners of the pool that they sometimes turn on at night.
Adding up the special effects, she also notes that the pool can be lit up in different colors as well.
The video takes a quick look next at the ‘hidden kids’ area,’ where Terry and Heather have set up a trampoline, tether ball set, and Slip ‘n Slide for their four children, Coco, Kat, Max, and Nick.
Shockingly, that’s still not all — not even close. Heather also proudly shows off the barbecue pavilion, which is close to the pool and has high countertop seating and lots of kitchen equipment, including a dishwasher, a fridge, and a pair of pizza ovens.
Pee break: She takes a trip to the ‘beachy and fun and cool and kind of California’ pool bathroom — which has blue mosaic walls, a porthole mirror, and an onyx sink that lights up and adds ‘beach glamour’
‘The backyard is basically my personal resort,’ Terry says in the video. I just feel at home and relaxed. The moment I walk out there I just [sigh]’
Speaking about this bird cage chair, she said: ‘It’s … an incredible place to sit and chill and reflect and look out at the water and honestly just be very very grateful for everything that we have’
Above it is a ‘big-a** TV’ which comes in handy when they want to hand in the pool and watch sporting events like the US Open.
But one of the most unique elements of the area is a bell hanging overhead, which she and her family like to chuck pieces of ice at to make it ring. The engraving reads, ‘Everything you want right now,’ which she says is the ‘coolest most positive affirmation’.
After a quick detour to the ‘beachy and fun and cool and kind of California’ pool bathroom — which has blue mosaic walls, a porthole mirror, and an onyx sink that lights up and adds ‘beach glamour’ — Heather ends this section of the tour by sitting in a glamorous gold-colored birdcage chair near the dining table.
She says: ‘It’s … an incredible place to sit and chill and reflect and look out at the water and honestly just be very very grateful for everything that we have.’
Envy much? Heather has been offerings fans a look inside the mansion she built from the ground-up with her husband, Terry Dubrow
Workin’! She spent an episode inside Château Dubrow showing fans Terry’s office, which is done in neutral tones and lots of browns
Unused: Heather said that Terry, a doctor, never actually uses his home office
Twinning! She pointed out how similar his office is to hers, with the same shelving units, vases and frames, and library ladder
On fire! Terry also has an identical fireplace in his office with the same head-conducting balls
Sneaky! She also showed off the hidden doors that lead to secret rooms
Six o’clock! The hidden door hides a very fancy-looking bar alcove which has a fridge for drinks and a freezer for ice
Likes her stones: The glassware sits atop a slice of agate, which Heather is a big fan of
Rockin’ it! More agate is on the walls in his secret bathroom, which is done in tans and browns
Wash off: The bathroom include a large shower in case Terry wants to stop in there after the gym
While the backyard alone is enough to get anyone drooling, it’s only the latest stop in an extensive home tour. In November, she gave viewers a peek inside Terry’s office and man cave.
The first stop, his office, is ‘the yin to my yang,’ according to Heather, since it’s nearly exactly like her own office except manlier.
All her! Terry, a plastic surgeon who stars on E! network’s Botched, admitted that his wife did pretty much everything in designing the house
‘They’re actually matching office exactly. They have the same cabinets, the same type of wood — his is just obviously stained darker, it’s more masculine,’ she said. ‘I just tried to make his a little more luxurious for a man. So no shag rug for Terry, I did a more tailored looking rug with a leather edge to it. ‘
Though the the fabrics and tones are different, the shape and format are the same, and individual pieces echo between the two rooms.
There are lots of blacks and brows, leather furniture, and metallics. He has a fireplace to match Heather’s, as well as a chandelier hanging from the ceiling.
When Heather showed off her office in the previous episode, one of the highlights was that she has secret cabinets hidden in the walls behind her desk, as well as a hidden door that leads to a secret bathroom.
Terry, too, has a hidden door in the wall behind his desk — and it leads to two sets of room.
First, there is a bar alcove, which has marbled countertops, a hammered silver sink, and luxe-looking glassware, as well as a fridge and freezer tucked away.
But beyond the bar room is yet another room: Terry’s bathroom.
Where he hangs: Though Terry never works in the office, he does use his special man cave
Manly: The room has a leather sectional, a big TV, a shag carpet, and brown and tan accents
Try it first! Heather said most of their furniture was custom-made but Terry insisted on sitting on this couch before buying it
Art fans; She also loves this piece of photography, which the photographer’s wife sent her and she had blown up
Just in here! Heather said she only lets Terry have these speakers in this room because she doesn’t like how they look
Look up! She was also quite proud of the way the ceiling was finished
Whereas the bathroom off Heather’s office just has a sink and toilet, though, Terry’s has a shower as well, ‘just in case Terry came home from the gym and wanted to take a shower downstairs.’
Yet despite all the thought and hard work that went into the set of rooms, Heather admits that her husband doesn’t actually use his office, ever, because he is a doctor and doesn’t need it.
What he does use is his man cave. This room also has a masculine vibe, with a leather sectional, a dark shag carpet, metallic table ornaments and horns, and brown curtains.
‘This really is a very comfortable sofa,’ Heather said. ‘So here’s the thing with Terry. Terry wanted to sit on everything before we bought it, and I had to explain to him that most furniture stores don’t have all the furniture in them anymore… but when it came to sofas he was very particular. So we went to Restoration Hardware.’
Also, the down-to-earth millionaire said, she actually likes to mix up her home with both custom pieces and ones you can ‘just walk into a store and buy.’
The room also has a huge television and large speakers, which Terry calls ‘the best sound in the world’.
‘I call them the most hideous tower[s] ever. But this is their space, so here they live,’ she said.
Coaster crazy! In addition to spending the episode taking a tour of Terry’s rooms, Heather also took a moment to talk about one of her own decorative loves: coasters
Just art! What’s funny, though, is that there is actually no need for coasters in her house — all of the surfaces are ‘user-friendly,’ so a perspiring glass wouldn’t leave a ring
And on a nearby wall is a large nature photo by Roman Johnston, which Heather said the photographer’s wife sent her.
Finally, she points to the ‘incredible’ ceiling, which is very high like all other ceilings in her house. It’s made up of metal squares, and hanging from it is a manly light fixture.
In addition to spending the episode taking a tour of Terry’s rooms, Heather also took a moment to talk about one of her own decorative loves: coasters.
‘I’m obsessed with coasters. I mean, really, really, really obsessed with coasters. I love them. They’re in every single room of this house except the bathrooms,’ she said.
The camera shows nearly a dozen different types of coasters, set in stacked in different rooms of the house. Many of them are crystal or agate, and they all look like they cost a pretty penny.
What’s funny, though, is that there is actually no need for coasters in her house — all of the surfaces are ‘user-friendly,’ so a perspiring glass wouldn’t leave a ring. Still, she loves the decorative element and picks different ones for every room.
A nice place to work: In the previous episode, Heather showed off the inside of her home office
Shine bright! The room is done up in a mix of neutral tones, with hints of glitz and sparkle all over
Deletgating: Heather admitted that, while she designed the whole house, she doesn’t have time for all the details of decor, so she hired help to present her with options
Grand entrance: When she enters her office, she walks in through two large doors with lit shelves on either side
Check it out: She showed off some of the storage and what she keeps on the shelves — including picture frames with no photos in them
In the previous episode, Heather gave viewers a look at her own office, which is much girlier than her husband’s As she walked into the office at the front of her house, Heather explained that she loves sparkle — which is immediately apparent in the rooms.
On either side of the tall double doors to come in are high shelves, which are lit up to show off the vases, books, and frames on display. She pointed out the ‘library latter’ she can use to reach high-up things, as well as the balance of symmetry and asymmetry in the design.
Just like in her husband’s office, the picture frames in her office don’t actually have photos in them. She admitted that it’s a problem of hers, because she never thinks to print out the photos on her phone.
On the floor is a large shag carpet, on top of which sits her desk, which is pristine and clutter-free.
There’s also a sitting area with two chairs that have been decorated with throws and pillows, as well as a glass Kelly Wearstler Dichotomy Table, which sells for $19,500 to $24,995.
‘I am a huge Kelly Wearstler fan and she’s an incredibly brilliant designer,’ she said. The table is topped with a giant sparkly crystal.
Nearby is a glamorous fireplace like the one in her husband’s office, which uses not wood but fire-conducting ‘big black balls,’ which Heather gets a kick out of.
In the video, Heather gestured to the large window, which is draped with a subtly-sequined set of drapes.
Sleek and hot: The room has a working fireplace that uses burning black balls instead of firewood
A view and privacy: She loves the big window with the view of her motor court, but got blinds for when she’s not dressed and mailmen come by
Expensive! There’s also a sitting area with two chairs that have been decorated with throws and pillows, as well as a glass Kelly Wearstler Dichotomy Table, which sells for $19,500 to $24,995
‘At first I decided, this window is so beautiful, and it overlooks my motor court and I can see my fountains — I’m just gonna leave it clean, I’m not gonna put anything,’ she said.
‘And then I realized any time a package is delivered or someone comes in the house, they walk right by my office. So I’m sitting here with zit medicine on and my hair up in a ponytail paying bills, and everyone’s walking by waving.’
Last, Heather walked over behind her desk to reveal a secret: The walls on that side of the room aren’t walls at all, but doors for hidden cabinets.
‘One of the most fun features of this out is all the hidden doors and spaces and areas,’ she said.
Behind one door is a minibar, with a dink and several bottles of champagne. Behind another is a printer, trays for paperwork, and a fridge containing more champagne.
‘I swear there’s champagne in every corner of this house,’ she said.
Another door hides not a cabinet but a secret bathroom which is one of Heather’s favorites. It’s decorated with sparkly wallpaper and mosaic tiles, and their are framed crystals on the wall.
Heather and Terry have both explained that Heather did nearly all the work designing their home, working with a contractor and picking out every detail.
Surprise! She showed off several secret doors with hidden storage behind the desk, including one with a printer and champagne fridge behind it
Work and play: She also has a minibar in her office with even more champagne
Shhh! At the end of the video, she pushed through a hidden door to a secret bathroom
Pee in peace: She said the bathroom was one of her favorites and is decorated with sparkly wallpaper and tiles
But while she certainly had a clear vision some of the details on the decor side are too much for her — so she enlisted Jessica Calvert of Anchorage Place Designs.
‘When it comes to furniture, fabrics, accessories, I don’t have the time or the inclination to do any of that,’ she said. ‘I have opinions on ’em, but I don’t really have that kind of time. And also spatially, you really need someone with a very good understanding of size, space, and the entire thing.’
In the previous episode of her home tour series, Heather started off with a little background on the house. Around the same time they sold their former home in 2012, they bought a vacant lot along the beach in California for $4 million.
According to Radar, they then spent several years — and another $7 million — building the 17,000 square foot home from the ground up.
‘I thought I would get this amazing lot with this incredible view. My big dream. And just dump it on Heather and have her build it,’ Terry said.
Heather agreed that it was mostly her vision and work, noting that while her husband is great at understand what needs to go into sculpting the human body, he’s less adept at dealing with brick and mortar.
So they hired builder Robert St. John of Rodeo Homes and worked with him and project manager Jim on designing and building the entire property. They, too, said it was all Heather .

Episode two: In this week’s episode, she shows off the grand entryway, which she is very proud of, and which features a floral display that is changed every week, so the foyer looks different depending on when a person visits
Bright lights: She has a chandelier hanging from the ceiling and said she loves the space for pictures because there is a lot of natural light
Art appreciation: In the hallway by the entrance there is an enormous five-panel piece of Peter Lik photography that she and Terry had seen at his studio in Las Vegas
Hands up: ‘When it came to the design and construction of this house, I was instrumental in absolutely nothing,’ said Terry
‘When it came to the design and construction of this house, I was instrumental in absolutely nothing,’ added Terry. ‘My big job in this house was to take care of the lighting and the sound and kind of blew it on both, and when the house was done we had to redo both of them.’

All turned out well in the end. After years of showing off bits and pieces of the building process on Real Housewives, Heather finished the place and is now taking fans inside.
In a previous episode, Heather started the door, beginning with the entryway. Here, she showed off a glass and acrylic table topped with tall vases of red flowers, and two large, silver, thrown-like chairs.
Heather said that an entryway is important because ‘it’s like meeting someone for the first time — it’s your first impression of someone’s home. It’s almost like unwrapping a present and seeing what’s inside.’
She pointed to the flowers on her table, which she says change frequently. Every week, her florist delivers a new arrangement, complete with different vases to hold the flowers.
She also raved about the spot being her favorite in the home for snapping pictures — both because it’s beautiful and because there’s great light. The camera panned up to show, high above, several windows, as well as a crystal chandelier dangling from the ceiling — which is itself outfitted with backlit imported onyx.
There are also crystal sconces on the walls, which she said she drew and had custom-made.
Next, she walked out of the entryway to a nearby hallway, where she showed off an enormous five-panel piece of Peter Lik photography they’d seen at his studio in Las Vegas.
Last, she showed off an etched women that she admits was a point of contention for her and Terry — she wanted it, he didn’t, and she won.

Look: She notes that not only is it beautiful, but it also has some hidden secrets — like four birds (one for each child) and a nest with two eggs, which represent her two frozen embryos
Double dose of pretty: She notes that she also loves how, when the light comes through the window, it leaves a pretty shadow on the floor
Heather called it ‘so spectacularly awesome’ as she showed it off, standing in front of windows that appear about nine feet high that are covered with a white floral design. She noted that not only is it beautiful, but it also has some hidden secrets — like four birds (one for each child) and a nest with two eggs, which represent her two frozen embryos.
There’s a bee for her beloved grandma Bee, and a heart reading T+H etched into the tree for her and Terry. She notes that she also loves how, when the light comes through the window, it leaves a pretty shadow on the floor.
‘It’s almost like having two pieces of art: one on the wall and one on the floor,’ she said.
In the first episode of the series, which she released in early October, Heather promised that the four-minute clip was just the first of many in which she’ll flaunt her enviable home, and she’s made good on that promise.
She wrote at the time: ‘Throughout the series, we’ll be taking you on a personal tour where you’ll get to see everything that happened behind the scenes! From the building process, to what the family REALLY thinks about the house, to YES even showing the 5 different types of ice and all 14 bathrooms! ‘
‘I am so excited to finally show you my house. Now, you might be asking, why? Why now? Because my kids were like, “Are you selling the house? Why are you filming?”
‘No, no, no. I honestly didn’t even think you guys cared anymore about seeing the house, but I’ve been inundated with so many messages from you, wanting to see the house, and every time I meet one of you on the street, you’re like, “So are we ever gonna see the house?”
Time and energy: The house was being worked on for years before it was perfected
Ultra-customized: She spent years building Château Dubrow from the ground up, spending a reported $7 million on a property that already cost $4 million
‘So I thought about it and yeah, let’s show the house. I’m super proud of what we built here and I’m so excited to share it with you.
‘But let me say this. I’m not showing you the house to show off,’ she says. ‘This isn’t like, “Look how fabulous my house is. Please come in and see the wallpaper.”
‘I just thought so many of you have asked me about it that I’d love to share it with you. So I really hope that you enjoy it.’
In the first clip, viewers got a few quick glimpses of her lavish digs. The camera zoomed down the long driveway and through the grand arches outside her home, in through the front door and shiny foyer, down a hallway past a grand piano, and into the back, where Heather looked past the infinity pool to gorgeous California views.
Quick clips showed a moody bar room, the sprawling indoor kitchen, and an outdoor kitchen.
‘There’s so much I love about this house,’ said Heather. Her husband Terry added, ‘What I love about this house is it’s weirdly huge, but at the same time homey.’
Fans of RHOC saw peeks inside her Newport Coast home before while she was still renovating, and Heather isn’t shy about showing it off on Instagram, either.
She and her husband finished renovating two and a half years ago, and haven’t revealed the value of the home. However, before moving there, they sold a 14,372-square-foot house in Newport in December 2012 for $16.45 million.
That was before each had raked in more money from their reality shows.

Heather and Terry spent years working on their house, which is known as Chateau Dubrow. The colossal, 22,000-square-foot, eight-bedroom home boasts a 22-seat movie theater and a swimming pool.
Terry once compared it to a resort in a chat with Bravo’s The Daily Dish — except his house is ‘bigger’.
‘Heather always says, “Let’s go on vacation.” I go, “I don’t want to go on vacation,’ Terry said. “My house is like a resort — except my house is bigger.” It’s perfection. It’s 22,000 square feet. It’s got a 22-seat movie theater. It’s my haven.’
Heather and Terry first broke ground on their new home in 2014 after selling their previous house for $16 million, Bravo reported at the time.
On her YouTube channel, Heather has given glimpses of various parts of her current house, including her sprawling walk-in closet and neat bathroom.
