The new season hasn’t even started yet, but “Real Housewives of Orange County” newbie Heather Dubrow and her plastic surgeon hubby Terry Dubrow are already making headlines with their legal troubles.
RadarOnline reports that Terry is being sued by at least two of his former patients who aren’t happy with their nips and tucks. Court docs show that Leah Goodman filed a lawsuit in March against the plastic surgeon and Newport Heights Medical Center for medical malpractice and negligence. She’s seeking $25K in damages.
June and Mark Hofherr also sued the doc a year earlier for general damages after June encountered various complications from an unspecified procedure.
The court files states the following: “Defendants failed to disclose material risks of the procedure to the plaintiff and thereby failed to fully describe the procedures that were proposed and/or exceeded the scope of the disclosure and thereby failed to obtain informed consent from the plaintiff for said course of care, treatment and/or surgery. Had plaintiff been adequately informed of all the risks of the procedure, plaintiff would not have consented to said procedure.”
Hubby Mark Hofherr adds that due to the botched surgery his wife “has been unable to perform the duties of a spouse and the work and services usually performed in the care, maintenance and management of the family home; June Hofherr will be unable to perform such work, services and duties in the future.”
Yowzas. Whatever did she get done?! Sounds like an extreme body makeover to us.
Catch newbie Heather and the rest of the catty gang on the “Real Housewives of Orange County” premiere on Feb. 7 on Bravo.
