Brandi Glanville Podcast 29
Guest: Terry Dubrow
Brandi wants to know if Terry has a God complex because lots of plastic surgeons do. (She’d know. Note the plural). He says no and that he’s no different than a butcher or meat cutter except his patients are alive. He lets his very young daughter watch his show, Botched. And, his kids call him the “Boobie Doctor”. Terry then says it’s weird that people let their kids watch Botched (wait, what? Didn’t he just say he let his kids watch?). Brandi says that Heather looks very natural compared to other plastic surgeon’s wives. Terry says she he’s given her botox and injectables but that’s it, plastic surgery wise. Terry says he made Heather do RHOC (confirming what many believed- that he’s the family’s #1 fameho).
He was pitching a reality show about a restaurant when he was approached about his wife doing RHOC. Terry lied to the HW’s producers for 3 months, telling them Heather would do the show when, in fact, she told him she wouldn’t. Brandi says that Heather was likable in the beginning but that she comes across as really condescending in the way she talks to him on the show. Terry wonders where Brandi was when he was single and says, “you were too hot for me!”. Brandi says that Heather is really going to love hearing that. Brandi notes that both she and Heather had bad seasons this year.
Terry mentions he’s done two reality shows before RH. He also says that he has botched surgeries before – that all plastic surgeons have. Paul is the 2nd best plastic surgeon he knows, he jokes. Terry’s known Paul for 16 years. Terry explains that he’s head to toe surgeon while Paul is just head and neck. Brandi says she loves Paul. Terry’s done work on Paul’s family but doesn’t say who (hmm, it’s a real mystery!). Brandi and Terry joke about Paul having man boobs.
Brandi has never had lipo but says she has something called, “flanks” that don’t go away no matter how much she works out (well, hello there! I’ve missed you, Brandi’s body dysmorphic disorder!). Terry recommends a treatment that Brandi says she’s already done and it doesn’t work and Terry agrees it doesn’t (huh? He just told her she should do it! Either he has a really bad memory or he’s an easy liar).
Brandi asks which OC couple Terry most likes to hang out with. Terry says that “despite the season she’s had, Tamra and Eddie”. Terry says that Tamra is the Brandi of the OC; that Tamra is “honest and real”. Brandi says Tamra likes to stir the pot but she likes her. The two are friends (ewww) and Brandi calls Tamra fun and “sweet” (ok, this is the Tamra from OC, right? Tamra Barney Judge?).
Terry then makes a dig at the NY housewives, saying that the OC had a “change of cast this season and that KILLED New York. The OC is bigger and better than ever and Tamra did what Tamra does. Tamra is the mailman, she brings it .” Ouch. Brandi asks Terry to play Marry, Shag, Kill with the OC cast. Terry says he would marry Tamra, shag Lizzie and kill the rest(“the rest” being the real winners here). Brandi says he could slice their heads off-cause, you know, he’s a surgeon. Brandi thinks the OC HW’s are medicated all the time.
Brandi likes Shannon and thinks she’s great TV. Brandi talks about a time when Shannon went to LA with Tamra to have lunch with her. She calls Shannon, “batshit crazy” and reveals that while at the restaurant, Shannon was showing people her Spanx (showing Spannx=batshit crazy…showing tampon=perfectly responsible drinker, ya’ll!). Brandi goes to the restaurant all the time and Shannon’s behavior embarrassed her (ok, I’m not sure what’s more shocking – that Brandi can be embarrassed or that a woman known for catastrophic wardrobe malfunctions on a bad day, boobie popping clothes on a good one could be so prudish at a little Spanx flashing).
Terry went to UCLA medical school and he’s been practicing for 20 years. Terry admits he’s had plastic surgery and whines that seeing himself on TV was tough because he thinks he looks fat! And, then Genius pipes in and says that TV makes her look fat, too. When people see her in person say how much thinner she is in real life. Terry asks if she thinks that she has body dysmorphic disorder (ya think?). Brandi says that pretty much all woman have it (yeah, no, we don’t).
Botched has been picked up for Season 2, to which Terry exclaims, “Yeah!” (this is a grown man, right?) Terry injects himself with Botox and has had cheek fillers. Brandi talks about her own cheek filler disaster. Brandi says she does all the fillers and lasers because she doesn’t want to get a face lift but thinks she’ll probably get one some day. Brandi can’t stand it when men do Botox. And, that it makes her think they’re gay. Terry agrees that it’s “totally weird” when men do botox (the same Terry that just said he’d done botox).
Terry wants to know what was really going on with Brandi’s tongue last season. And, he tells her to “bring it” (this is a grown man, right?). She says she did something called Althera (? Some sort of filler?) She says that she has TMJ and her jaw went out but that she went to her dentist and he said it was the Althera. Terry agrees (meaning he’ll disagree in two seconds). She has several orthotics that she wears for her jaw. She says she couldn’t talk for a year as a result of the Althera.
Terry says that Heather is the disciplinarian in the family. Brandi will smack her boys “upside the head” if they get out of line and talk back. They both agree that there is no way to stop kids today from seeing porn. Heather will drop the occasional f bomb. Brandi wants to know out of all the women on the OC, which one would he like to perform surgery on. He says none. He doesn’t think any of them need it.
They talk about Botched and some of the cases on the show and Terry talks about the use of leaches in plastic and reconstructive surgery. For example, during some more difficult breast lift surgeries, the nipples can lose oxygen and turn blue so they use leaches to draw blood to the area. Brandi’s reaction is perfectly normal…..”That just kind of turned me on, in a weird way..putting leaches on my nipples. I need to have sex soon”.
Brandi says that Paul has recently had plastic surgery, a nose job and lipo and Terry says that Paul attracts women easily. Terry laments that he wasn’t a successful plastic surgeon when he was single (sooo, he’s regrets he couldn’t get hotter women when he was younger..making Heather what?). Brandi thinks model Gisele is the hottest woman ever. Terry disagrees, he doesn’t think she’s that great. Terry prefers Scar Jo.
Brandi asks, since he likes curves, if he’s going to give his wife breast implants since she appears to be flat chested. Terry says that when Heather was young she had a smoking body and had small D breasts but after having kids, they have “deflated” and are now “a really nice set of full B’s”. Brandi asks if going from D to B left Heather with saggy boobs. He says “she is slightly deflated. Very pretty but deflated” but she doesn’t need plastic surgery.
Brandi had B cups before kids but saggy “National Geographic” boobs after so she got implants. Brandi name drops that she went to Angelina Jolie’s doctor to fix her boob job (why would Jolie be at a plastic surgeon? To provide the ultimate after photo?) The Dr. put fat in a dent that Brandi has on her breast but it didn’t work and got hard. Terry says that things will always go wrong in plastic surgery.
Brandi asks if Terry wants to take down David Beador. Brandi thinks that Tamra did say that to Shannon. Terry says he doesn’t even know David. And that in the final episode, he screams at the Beadors inappropriately, that he “goes berserk”. He admits he looks like a “giant asshole”. Terry claims that he was told things that David said to his wife by castmembers that weren’t accurate. Brandi tries to get him to say what but he wants to save it for the reunion. He said the comments by David were of a “sexual nature” but that when he actually saw the show, they were blown out of proportion and that he winds up looking like “the biggest a**hole on the planet”.
Brandi says that when she has “blackout sex” that it didn’t really happen. Brandi wants Terry to interview her. He asks her about being on the show. He says that, for him, his feelings about the show are 90% love, 10% hate(and 100% famehoey). Brandi says the show saved her. She doesn’t know where she’d be without it. She was 36, going through a divorce and had no education. She asks, “What was I going to do, wait tables?”. Brandi says she owes the show her life. Terry asks where she will be in 5 years. She’d love to be hosting a very popular podcast or a late night show. Terry asks if she’ll just find a rich guy and marry him. Brandi doesn’t want to get married again.
Terry talks about Cameron Diaz and her anti monogamy stance and wonders if Brandi agrees. Brandi says she knows Cameron and she thinks Diaz actually loves monogamous relationships and only says that because some of her relationships ended badly. Brandi thinks monogamy is possible but difficult. Who are the hottest guys in Hollywood right now? And, he instructs her, again, to “bring it”. Brandi names the guy who is dating Sophia Vergara and actor Chris Pratt. In response to the latter, Terry bitchily says, “Check this out! A year ago he was 50 lbs heavier, totally obese. Totally chubby guy with man boobs. You wouldn’t be interested at all.” (I’d take chubby man boobs any day over an idiotically juvenile man-chick who says things, like “bring it’ all the time).
Terry asks if there are any women she’s interested in. Brandi thinks women are beautiful but is only interested sexually if there is a man involved. She wishes she could be a lesbian but she “likes cock”. Terry has a theory that women can be bisexual but men can’t. Terry says that he’s the rare guy that doesn’t get turned on seeing two women together. In fact, it turns him off. Brandi says that’s good for Heather because she doesn’t have to go “down under”.
Terry says Heather has a very high sex drive (he doesn’t say for who). Terry says that he’d smoke pot if it were legal. Brandi was a pothead in HS. But, she’s never done shrooms. She’s done a ton of ecstasy but never acid. Pot, X and coke are the drugs she’s done. Terry wants to know who she’s dating. She says she’s having sex with her ex again. Terry thinks AJ is a good looking guy, like a Ralph Lauren model.
