Heather Dubrow announced her exit from The Real Housewives of Orange County earlier this year and during a recent interview, her husband spoke out about the stress of the Bravo TV reality series.

Following her sudden exit, Dr. Terry Dubrow, who appears on the E! Network series Botched, explained the dark side of being on a reality series with several other women.

"One of the most incredible, interesting experiences of our lives was being on the Orange County Housewives, but there's a certain component of stress that's been removed because there's less conflict," the Botched star told The Daily Dish, via a report by Radar Online on Wednesday.

Dubrow's time on the show was plagued by drama and during the series' 11th season, she infamously butted heads with the often foul-mouthed, Kelly Dodd.

Shortly after filming wrapped, she confirmed she was done with The Real Housewives of Orange County during an episode of her podcast series, Heather Dubrow World.

It was also reported that marital conflict may have been a factor in Dubrow's decision to leave the show.

"After Heather's marriage became a central focus last season on the show, it really caused issues with her and Terry," a source revealed to Radar Online. "They both decided that that she should just quit RHOC since they both have several other successful projects and do not need the money. The last thing that either of them want is to end up in a divorce because they became reality TV stars."

The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 12 premieres on Monday, July 10 at 9 p.m. on Bravo TV.
