When we caught up with the actress, mom and RHOC cast member, she explained why she felt "excluded" from the other ladies this season and why she constantly feels the need to defend herself. Heather also reveals that she thought she would be friends with Shannon, but that they "hit a bumpy road this season." However, discovering she had a mutual friend with Lizzie made them fast friends!
Plus, Heather filled us in on recent texts and run-ins she's had with the former OC Housewives she keeps in touch with and why "the truth always comes out" with new cast members.
The Real Housewives of Orange County airs tonight at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
