I completely agree she has, but how she's used it as a weapon against the other women should also be noted.We joke but she's totally been traumatized. It's all over her mannerisms and her drive. We've kinda flattened her character these past few years!
The way I am on episode 7 of season 7 and Kristen has so far had a whopping one (!) solo scene.
“Bethenny told me I should go get a new hobby and you know what I did and it’s not hanging out with her”.
Jill’s mantra playing in every episode of season 3 so far. I can’t!
Heather is by far the most likeable and all-around good person on the cast (which doesn’t necessarily make her the best housewife). She’s funny, warm, knows how to argue without coming across as bitchy but… you are completely right. It’s fascinating to see how the dynamics changed as soon as Bethenny came back into the picture. I actually did not think that I missed her at all after she first departed in earlier seasons but now that she’s back, there’s no denying she’s the centre of the show (for better or worse). The cast in season 7 is so big, people were always going to fade into the background unless they were doing the absolute most.Yes, they really froze her out didn't they? It's so obvious. Heather didn't really survive that series either, not after Bethenny arrived and reclaimed her position on the show as the successful entrepreneur of the group.
